Hello My Furiends,
Well it’s Wednesday and I for one am one thankful feline that all the purrlitical stuff is over! I hope you are all enjoying the day and that you enjoy my Wednesday web wanderings.
Purrs & Head Bonks,
This is Saul, who was rescued off the streets of London after being hit by a car. He was in bad shape, with an injured jaw, eye and teeth. All of these contributed to his unique look. This little guy is on the mend, is very affectionate and despite his expression, one happy guy. He will be up for adoption soon as soon as he is completely healed. Here’s hoping Saul finds his furever home!
Now you humans can combine your love of theater, music and cats with Bohemian Rhapsody. Despite reviews, which range from disappointed to scathing. The movie brought in $50 million at the box office over its opening weekend, over-performing expectations by nearly $10 million. And, although fans love the music and Rami Malek’s performance as lead singer Mercury, it’s clear cats are taking center stage as these tweets about Freddie Mercury’s cats suggest. Rock and roll kitties!
Marvel Comics has a history of characters who remind us of cats, or have the word “cat” in their name.. Case in point, Marvel has Black Panther, Sabretooth, Black Cat, Hellcat, Shadowcat, and the list goes on and on. It was only a matter of time until an artist gave the Marvel heroes a feline makeover. . Fajareka Setiawan is a freelance illustrator and concept designer who has created a series called “Catvengers,” which feature various Marvel characters as fabulous felines. You can check out his heroic kitties in his Instagram posts..
Has Black Panther, the King of Wakanda, ever looked so cute? His costume might be made out of the strongest metal known to man, but he’ll still chase a laser pointer all across the living room floor.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, when humans do stuff that benefits felines and little humans it’s a wonderful win-win. This program at the Cat Welfare Association brings shy cats and shy mini humans together with the Crime Cats Mystery Club.
The club invites students in grades 1-8 to read aloud to felines who are housed in the “shy cat room” at the shelter. The program was recently awarded a 2018 Literacy Leader Award.
Now I know there are a lot of cat mystery writers out there (our Female Human is one of them) so let’s get the lead out human authors and get something like this started in your shelter!
