Walk Through the Web Wednesday 4/19

Hello Friends,
Alberto here. I’m back to my regular Wednesday purrrrusal of the web. Last week was “crash on the couch” Wednesday. The humans kindly provided us with a new sofa and I was enjoying my day off.

But it’s back to work now and I have some great feline finds for you.
Enjoy,

Japanese Chef Cat Has an Outfit for Every Meal – Bored Panda

Meet  Maro, one handsome dinner companion! Every since he was 7 months old, Maro has been sporting varied dinner ensembles. His human noticed what a relaxed guy he is and they’ve been having fun every night at dinner.  Be sure to scroll through the photos and see how Maro dresses to compliment the meal that is being served.

 

 

 

Scatty the Maine Coon Cat Helps His Human Navigate the Seas – Love Meow

oprange and white maine coon cat helps his deaf owner on sdailboarThis little guy has quite the moniker, Skatty or Strauss von Skattebol of RebelPawz. He came to live with his human, Paul  J. Thompson as a little kitten. His human has set out to sail across the the southern Atlantic Ocean (starting from New Zealand) and Skatty will be an important part of the journey. Skatty’s human is deaf, so Skatty will be his ears on board and he gives visual cues that help Paul navigate the sea.

If you’re surprised about the concept of service cats, you shouldn’t be. Our friends Dezi and Raena are service cats and they write about how they help care for their human. They’re cool cats!

Cat Sneaks into a Marlins Baseball and Finds a Forever Home – Sports Illustrated 

gray cat sneaks into Marlins opening season game

A crafty cat climbed over the outfield wall at the opening season game and hung out for a while (maybe when he heard “Marlins” he thought there would be fish). He not only made the news but found himself a forever home with one of the stadium employees. Sounds like a home run to me!

 

Cat Has No Concern About Interrupting Mayor – Laughing Squid

This is a cautionary tale for humans who have felines around their work area. You know that we like to be in the middle of things and this cat, from Riga, Latvia is no different. The mayor was making a televised comment about pot holes and the cat either had something to say about the subject or just wanted the mayor to pet him. Either way, it makes for pretty funny TV and I say any mayor with a feline in his office gets my vote!

 

 

 

 

The Three Feline Rules Regarding Furniture

Hello Friends,
Alberto here. The recent purchase of a sofa at our house brought up some misunderstandings between the felines and the humans in our home. It occurred to me that many of my feline readers may be experiencing some of these misunderstandings in their own homes.

The female human announced the sofa was for her and our male human to “sit comfortably” and watch the big black moving picture thingy in the living room. What she failed to recognize is that there are feline rules regarding furniture and other areas of the home that must be obeyed.

Rule # 1 –What’s Yours is Ours

The new sofa arrived and the female human snapped a photo after it was situated. Note that the fur protection, i.e., blankets and throws are not in appearance yet…and they always magically disappear when other humans come to visit).

We were quite happy to have this extra space to relax on and wasted no time checking it out.

 

 

Rule # 2 – Your Comfort is Of No Concern To Us

We immediately took possession of the new sofa (as well as the old one). We so enjoy the blankets the female human puts on them for our comfort. I am purrrticularly pleased with the long part of the new sofa as I like to stretch myself out as far as I can and this area accommodates me quite well. We are thrilled with the extra room we now have, each sofa accommodates two cats, much more comfy than our former,  cramped situation!

 

 

 

 

The female human is always griping about not File Apr 17, 3 50 37 PMhaving a comfy place to sit but since she’s always that last one home there is no spot for her. The male human, if he’s lucky, squeezes himself in on one side of the new couch and the female human is left with the chair. Now if any humans are reading this and wondering, “Why don’t they just move the cats?” you are obviously not owned by felines and attempting to explain this phenomena to you would be fruitless.

 

 

 

Rule # 3 –Any Place We want to Lounge Is Our Space (if It fits we sit)

a siamese cat and black and white cat sitting in a sinkThe female human often points to areas of the house saying things like, “Keep off the counter”, “You are not allowed on the dining room table”, blah, blah, blah.  We find this quite amusing and wonder when she’s ever going to give up this sham that we have boundaries.  I’ve included photos of us in a few of the places she’s designated as “off limits”.

In conclusion, new furniture, old furniture or for that matter, any place in the house, belongs to the felines in residence and not the humans.  Sometimes the humans  will cruelly close doors in an attempt to keep us out of places. There is Siamese cat staring through a glass dooralways a work around for this. The female human tries to keep me out of her downstairs office but thankfully she has glass doors so a pitiful expression and much howling always does the trick (if the door is not glass, no worries, just implement the howling).

I hope my feline friends have found these rules helpful and that my human readers will finally come to the inevitable  conclusion that cats will lounge where cats want to lounge, it’s how we roll.

 

Your friend,
Alberto

The Catburry Bunny Auditions – 15andmeowing.com

My only complaint about this post is that I didn’t get to the audition. I saw so many great catidates, I wouldn’t have been able to choose just one but IMHO cats make the BEST Catburry Bunnies and there should be more next Easter! I do have to say though, this purrticular contestant looks less than enthusiastic.

Sunday Selfies – Purrseidon

We felines are great fans of the selfie, I mean, look at that gorgeous profile! I also enjoyed the other selfies except for that one with the loooooooong nose, kinda’ freaked meowout, if truth be told but, as you can see from Purrseidon’s picture on her blog page, she is one very brave cat, definitely braver than this feline!

Sunday Selfies, Maverick & Charlie – Animal Shelter Volunteer Life

I know, this is another Sunday selfie post but I was taken with these handsome fellows. Maverick in purrrticular, reminds me of our very own Alberto. If the truth be known, every one of the Tribe of Five has some Siamese, even Oliver who resembles a Holstein more than a Siamese! I sure hope these handsome fellows find forever homes soon!

And Now…..Let’s Party!

Oliver and Alberto Visit Deziz World

Hey Folks,
Guess where we are? We had a play date with our good furry friends Raena and Dezi, they are two cool cats even with Dezi spending most of our time together UTB (under the bed) because of the thunder storm. We don’t like thunderstorms either. But it was a great time with good friends and for those of you who don’t know our buddies, you should check them out, not only are they nice, they are service cats and you can find out all about what service cats do on their blog.
Purrs and Head Bonks,
Oliver & Alberto
