Alberto here. It’s time for my weekly purrrrusal of the best of feline stories on the web. I hope you enjoy!
Purrs & Head Bonks,
These two cats from Switzerland never walk when they can Mausi & Miseli live in the Swiss Alps and are rapidly becoming an Instagram sensation. (Hmmm, I need to speak with their social media people, how come I’m not an Instagram sensation??)
My regular readers know that my two favorite subjects in this feature are working cats and adventure cats. Well wouldn’t ya’ know, someone has finally come out with a book about working cats! The book “Cats on the Job: 50 Fabulous Felines Who Purr, Mouse, and Even Sing for Their Supper” provides a glimpse of the work days of 50 working cats! Bravo to all these working cats and if you’re an unemployed feline. I hope this book gives you inspiration to go out there and get employed!
Many television purrrsonalities have had a slip up during filming. Now you an enjoy watching TV bloopers with cats. Enjoy (and let me just say, the “cat freaking out on the harness” was a scene actually performed in our household when the female human tried once (once being the operative word) to put Jasmine in a harness. It wasn’t pretty for anyone involved!
This story wins the “aaawwww” award as well as the “good human of the year award”. This wonderful human decided that instead of evacuating alone, he’d go to the shelter and rescue a feline to evacuate with. He wrote on Reddit, “My co-worker and I went to the shelter together. When we went over to Ryder’s cage she was just so adorable (looking up at me). I decided to adopt her. […] If I am going to be evacuating from this hurricane I might as well do it with a friend.” He headed north with his little friend he named Ryder and shared update photos of this kitten he has fallen in love with. “Now in South Carolina, he says that Ryder is friendly, confident and very, very cuddly – as well as very spoiled! Not that he intends to do anything about that.” Both human and feline are looking forward to returning to their Florida home. There sure a lot of good people out there!
Being a working cat can sometimes be dangerous. Mir Kasham of the Moon Mini Mart is mourning the loss of his little kitten Takela and says everyone misses her. A few hours after Mr. Kasham turned down a man who offered to buy the little kitten for $50.00, a woman was caught on the store surveillance camera picking up the sweet little silver and gray kitten and carrying her out of the store under her coat. He is quoted in the New York Post as saying, ““Please bring it back. Everyone misses Takela!” He did file a police report with 66th Precinct. If any of my readers are in this area, please keep keep your eyes open for Takela.
