Cat sitting up

First of all, this is a cat sitting up.

Second, this cat has a fabulous and unusual name: Pokeweed.

So Pokeweed the cat likes and does sit up. What a suave guy.
Keep watching – a cat mate proves that Pokeweed really is a cat sitting up – he’s not leaning on anything (like a sofa).

Keep on chillin’ Pokeweed.

cat lovers board game

Cat lovers (maybe some Monoploly lovers too) will be thrilled to know that they’ve been heard: a company has created a ‘Cat-opoly’ board game, the cat lovers board game.

In 2013, Hasbro, the makers of Monopoly, replaced the dated “iron” marker with a cat! Worldwide, cat lovers were thrilled, animal lovers pleased.Monopoly cat marker

But cat lovers wanted more.

Cat-opoly board game

Monopoly? No, better than that: Cat-opoly!

A US company ‘Late for the sky” has now created Cat-opoly, an entire board   game that’s all about cats.

Cat board game catopoly

Ready to play?

Instead of buying properties, like in Monopoly, players compete against each other in Cat-opoly

  • to purchase cat breeds, which increase in price as one advances around the board.

Rather than purchasing houses

  • players shell out for litter boxes and then can opt to trade them in for fish bones.

Instead of players going to jail

  • experience something that most cats (pretend you’re a Turkish Van, who loves to swim) don’t appreciate – getting thrown into water!

 

Now let’s play Cat-opoly!

Cat uses collar to drink

 Cat uses collar to drink

On those those rare occasions when I think ‘my cat is STOOPID!’ (of course I would never say it, and as far as I know my cat can’t read. At least English) I’m going to remember this clip of cat uses collar to drink because the cat with the collar is resourceful – and just so dang cute!

Meanwhile, less rare are the times when I think humans ARE stupid, especially myself.

 

BTW, I wondered about the collar the kitty is wearing in the video. I didn’t even know what the collar is called. The collar this poor guy is wearing is called an Elizabethan collar, better known as an E-collar.

it’s used on a cat who has an injury, or had surgery, to protect the wound so that the cat can’t lick it or scratch at it, enabling the wound to heal. Apparently it’s not so easy to properly put an E-collar on a cat yourself. Your vet really should do it – which means it stays on your cat for as long as the healing process takes.

for more information about E-collars, go to vca hospitals, a network of over 600 animal hospitals across 41 states, and 4 in Canada.

funny cats in boxes

These funny cats in boxes, are jumping, diving, and squeezing into small boxes and other tight spaces. They are really cute so my kitty care had to stop laughing and share this – watch them plunge headfirst into boxes, diligently crawl into impossibly small vases…and make us laugh!

Thanks Jenny

cat converts husband – who doesn’t like cats

cat converts husband – who doesn’t like cats!

Janna and Bruce live in Idaho. She’s a pilot and he’s a photographer. They have a sweet dog, Booger, who Bruce tolerates. Janna, however, loves animals. She grew up with animals, including chickens, and always wanted chickens of her own. She now has four. Harvey (a female chicken) is gleefully perched upon Janna’s head.

Her Husband Bruce has many interests, but animals aren’t one of them. Until Soda came along. Six months ago, Soda found Janna and Bruce. Janna was pleased, Bruce, not so much. In fact, he wanted “that cat outta the house!” It didn’t take long before Janna noticed Bruce giving Soda a pet, or a treat.

Now, Soda, Janna and Bruce, and their dog Booger, all live happily under one roof.

Bruce won’t say he’s added interest in cats, yet, while he’s petting Soda.

from ABC news, Australia –

Four years ago an experiment by the Walker Art Centre to explore the phenomenon of internet cat videos began and this week, their sell-out 4th Internet Cat Video Festival highlighted what we all already knew: The world cannot get enough of cats behaving — well, like cats.
“The crowd is absolutely awesome. We’ve got 13,000 people here and we’ve not had a single call,” Sergeant Paul Poulos of St. Paul, Minnesota, said, while patrolling the stadium.

Cat and ultralight

Print pagePDF page

Cat and ultralight are never said in the same sentence. But here’s a cool cat. A canopy mounted camera provides a video of a cat and ultralight, at a club in Guyanese, France. When this ultralight was parked, perhaps in the sun, maybe this cat saw a lovely spot to nap: warm, hammock-like spot. Then…
“Hey! Kinda noisy and windy – oh well, nice view.”

Wonder if this guy liked it enough to go for another ride?

Thanks Jenny
