Cat Selfies

Cat owners (and those owned by cats, if that is the case), how on Earth do you get your kittehs to sit still for a nice family portrait or kitty selfie? If your cat is like any of mine, it's absolutely out of the question. They are certainly too fabulous to have their photos taken by mere mortals, amirite? It turns out there are a few tricks you can try, like this cat attachment for your phone.

Round-Faced Cat Cutie

There are so many cute cats and dogs on Instagram these days that another one may not sound that exciting at first, but I promise that Zuu is definitely something unique! Zuu is a cat with an almost perfectly round face, and the cat's adorable cotton ball-like appearance is stealing everyone's heart. The cat looks like a forest spirit from a Studio Ghibli movie rather than a house cat!

Keeping Kitty Safe And Calm Post-Surgery

In the middle of one of our most hectic weeks of the year, our cat had to have surgery. She's doing great, but it's been fun keeping the cone on her so she doesn't lick the glue that's holding her stitches shut open! It's also been fun keeping her away from the rest of the cats and dogs, some of whom want to help her lick herself clean. Isn't that sweet of them...

The Best Cat Jokes

Cat jokes and memes are some of the best entertainment we have, don't you think? Cats are so funny already, so it makes perfect sense for their behavior, when explained or even roasted, to be just as entertaining. Whether you like jokes about how cats "own" their humans, how cats are jerks or how they differ from dogs, they are some of the funniest, and often even the cleanest, jokes around.

Russian Blue Cats

Having had cats for most of my life, it's strange when I think of all of the various breeds I've never adopted. I almost said "owned," but cats pretty much own you! I have one clawing up my office chair as we speak. I tend to gravitate toward tortoiseshells, long-haired cats and especially black cats; I don't think I've ever been without a black cat for long. But I've never had a Russian Blue, and seeing these photos of Russian Blue cats makes me really want one!

Yes, Female Cats Spray

My one-year-old cat is in heat, and we have to get her in to get fixed ASAP because she's begun to "scent" everything. I wrote about how we use her "calming box" to help her quiet down, and it does help to keep her calm--it's just an open cardboard box she can lie down in and look at us from the top, the same kind of typical cardboard box any other cat enjoys playing in--but now that she's peeing everywhere to try and attract a mate, and annoying not just all of us but my neurtered cats as well, it really is time to spay the last cat!
