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.
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!
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...
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.
We all love a good cat video, and many of us could waste hours on the Internet (and have) just watching and enjoying them. So when a professional video editor inserted videos of his cat into popular movies and TV shows, of course it's something we all need to see and celebrate!
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!
It's a scorcher where I live today and I wouldn't dream of leaving my dogs or cats in the car for any reason, but I don't own a Tesla.
Have you heard that cloning cats is all the rage right now? Apparently since celebrities are cloning their dead cats, everyone who has $25,000 to blow is doing it, too. And when the cat is "born," it's so much like the original cat that this couple actually named it the same name.
Have you ever heard of cremation infused glass? It's when ashes are fused into a memorial ornament for a necklace, holiday decoration or other bauble to help remind you of a lost loved one. At Davenport Memorial Glass, you can get them made for both humans and animal companions.
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!
