Hello There,
It’s my favorite day of the week when I purruse the wonders of the web for fabulous feline tales. I hope things are going well for all my friends out there. It’s getting a bit chilly in our neck of the woods but I must say, Oliver and I enjoy sitting on the window sills and chasing leaves as they flutter by us.

I hope you enjoy my news tidbits for the week.

Purrs & Head Bonks,

Policewoman Has Rescued/Rehomed more than 60 Cats & Kittens – Metro UK

policewoman rescues kittens and cats

My humans have always had great respect for those who serve and protect us but I’ve always been a bit ambivalent, until I heard about Officer Gretchen Byrne that is, she is a REAL Hero!

This officer is not just a crime fighter, she’s a cat saver and whenever she can she rescues cats. She started her rescuing mission a few years ago when she couldn’t bear the sight of cats scavenging for food on her beat.

Many of the shelters where she lives in South Florida are full so she decided she’d do what she could for the feral cat population. (If it wasn’t for good folks like Officer Byrne, shelters and our humans, The Tribe of Five might have been relegated to finding our meals in trash cans!)

This lady is amazing, she fosters kittens, brings grown cats to her home to get them in shape for adoption and works to find every feline a furever home.  The Tribe of Five give you a two paws up salute Officer Byrne!

To Costume or Not to Costume – Halloween

I am not a fan of felines in fancy dress (hence my expression when the humans tried to stuff me in a dinosaur costume last Halloween), but I know there are some felines  out there who enjoy a bit of dress up so I will put aside my own opinions for those of you who enjoy this holiday.

Cats & Dogs Doing Halloween Better Than You-Daily Mail

Oh the indignity of these photos. I have always held the Tuxedo cat in high esteem, there’s something about that elegant black and white coat that screams class…..until you put a Tuxedo in a baked potato outfit. People, Please!!!

These folks not only share some costume ideas, they provide links so you can purchase the purrrrfect feline Halloween outfit.  If I had to choose, I think I’d go for the rather dashing doctor costume!

 

 

 

Dublin’s First Cat Cafe – Lovin’ Dublin

black kittens at the Dublin cat cafe

Georgina O’Neill, a feline loving Dublin business woman, inspired by the many cat cafes in Japan, decided to bring the concept to the Emerald Isle. Not only can you get a cuddle from a kitten but you can sip complimentary coffee during the process.  The female human is very bummed that this cafe wasn’t open the last time she visited Ireland.  We urge all you humans to life up your Guinness and wish these kitties the luck of the Irish, Sláinte!
