It’s that time of the week when I purrruse the web and bring you my favorite feline facts and news. Enjoy!
True Love – Feline and Human Style – The DoDo
The course of true love can be a wild ride as two humans recently discovered. They meet through an online dating service and soon discovered that their felines were long-lost brothers. Come to find out, the humans had adopted these brothers from the same shelter four days apart. “”After realizing that we had long-lost cat brothers, we were amazed and felt like it was serendipity!” says Cavin. “It was love at first sight when we met and the cats just solidified that we truly belong together!”
The humans have friends who recently moved to Iceland. I kept thinking, “Iceland, what in the world is in Iceland?” Well, come to find out, those Iceland folks are pretty clever and have created a new reality show, which is, as the review says, is just about everything you could want in a reality show. The advertisement says, “Four kittens. One dollhouse. The drama between nine-week-old kittens Guðni, Stub, Bríet, and Ronja is palpable. Who will nab the top bunk bed? Is Guðni teasing his sisters again? How will the family deal when Stub has to have part of his tail amputated? (He’s fine.)” Humans, hand over the clicker, the cats now have their own favorite show!
A clever human figured out how to make felines even more adoptable by making some pretty funny adoption cards. The cards feature a photo of the cat, his/her name and provides a list of their likes — “sleeping in a sunbeam” — and dislikes — “the warlock’s curse that transformed her into a cat.” All of the cards are funny and clever and here’s hoping it will help more of my feline friends find furever homes.
You know how much I love working cat stories so you can imagine how excited I was to find this article that talks about how great felines are for search and rescue. “Experts say cats may hold even more potential than dogs when it comes to sniffing out missing persons, bombs drugs and diseases.” I have two feline friends, Dezi and Raena who are service cats. Never heard of service cats? Read about them here.
There is also a cat named Henry who helps to find lost kitties. We felines have lots of jobs and I think, humans are only beginning to learn what we are capable of.
