12 Cats in Hong Kong You Need to Know – Postsize

striped cat in a box in a Hong Kong storeA Dutch photographer moved to Hong Kong and noticed something right away, seems everywhere he went there were cats.  I say two paws up to these feline loving folks in Hong Kong and I might suggest that the folks in my own beloved U. S. of A get on this bandwagon!

This is a delightful story from another Far East neighbor, Japan. All that “fighting like cats and dogs” rhetoric is blown with this story. These two are fast friends and close furry family members. Do you live with a canine you love? Post some photos on our Feline Opines Facebook page and share the love with everyone!

My humans love to watch the show, “My Cat From Hell” (not that any of the Tribe of Five would EVER need the advice of Jackson Galaxy for any bad behavior). They watch it for educational purposes only. Well this kitty was featured on the show not because he has issues but because he brings so much love and healing to the firefighters .  Host Jackson Galaxy says: “You know, one of the things that makes Flame, for me, a cat from Heaven, is to see a bunch of guys gathered around a cat and just having them melt — and a bunch of tough-guys at that.” We don’t have enough cat guys out there flying that flag and saying ‘come on, man, cat’s are for men too.”  This feline couldn’t agree more!

Browser the tabby cat works in a Texas libraryLibrary Cat Loses His Job…and Then…- Cuteness

I have featured many felines with jobs in my Wednesday wanderings. Browser, the library cat had been working in a library in a small Texas town for quite a while but then, on June 14th, some human named Elzie Clements proposed a motion to the city council that Browser should be evicted.  He was given 30 days notice.  Well, after local folks decried this motion in person at the council meeting, a petition was created and they received 700 signatures. But wait, there’s more…more than 12,000 Browser supporters signed the petition and then a pro-Browser Facebook page was launched and the rest, as the humans say, is history. People from all over the world sent their support for Browser to keep his job. After all this and the thousands of messages the mayor received, a special meeting was called on July 30th (which was broadcast) and the council voted unanimously to reinstate Browser.  My human is always saying that people should be engaged in their local politics, now I’m beginning to understand what she means, sometimes you just have to get purrrrlitical!

orange tabby Mr. Wu works in a New Orleans bar9 Cats With Cushy Jobs – Mental Floss

Browser isn’t the only feline with a good job.  I enjoyed reading about all these “purrrfressonal felines” but I think my favorite is Mr. Wu.  Mr. Wu works at Molly’s Market in New Orleans. He arrived during hurricane Katrina looking for shelter and never left. When Mr. Wu chooses to take a break from his work at the bar, he is served fresh cream in a go cup.
