A Convention Dedicated To Cats in Denver

Two paws up for the good folks in Denver who created the “Snowcats Cat Convention. Humans will love all the vendors there and there will be meet and greets with famous cats like Lil Bub and Baloo The Cat. (Now I ask you, when will the Tribe of Five get on that list of famous cats?!). The most innovative event at this conference is not the holiday cat sweater contest (which isn’t too shabby), no, it’s the “catchelor auction”where cat loving men are auctioned off for dates (Note to single cat ladies,get yourself to Denver!)

You’ll hear great performances from one of our favorite human celebrities like  MoShow, The Cat Rapper.

And of course, there will be an adoption eventas well. Lest you scoff at Denver for hosting this feline extravaganza, they’ve already sold 1800 tickets and the event isn’t until next weekend. They expect a turnout of 3,000 people and yes, you can buy a ticket for your cat to accompany you too!

Great Cat Quotes

There are humans who don’t always understand the way other humans love felines. This collection of 25 cat quotes (plus the beautiful kitchen pictures) will help you explain this to your uneducated furiends. How sad that there are humans who are so unenlightened as to not see the beautify and benefit of living with cats!

What Do Princess Auto and Cold Kitties Have in Common?

The animal shelter on Prince Edward Island in Canada was out of power for a very long time and it was cold! The shelter had a generator but it would only power two rooms, leaving Kitty Corner and adjacent rooms in the cold. The enterprising humans at the shelter posted their problem on Facebook, looking for another generator to borrow. Community members responded quickly and one of the first was Princess Auto. They brought a generator and hooked it up and wouldn’t you know it, the power came back on.

But the shelter had another problem as the basement had flooded and their sump pump didn’t work. The good humans at Princess Auto came through again and brought them a pump and the basement was cleared of water.

Two paws up to the helpful humans on Prince Edward Island who came through for a shelter of cold kitties!

A 39-year-old became a millionaire with an invention that potty-trains cats 

This just might be the “scoop” of the century (MOL). Seriously though, what a win win. The Human gets a million and never scoops another litter box again. I love it when Human and feline plans come together so well! Watch the video to see how it works.

Five Cool Inventions for Cats

While we’re on the subject of inventions for cats, you should check these out.  The Kitty City looks like a fun play area but for some of us lean more toward the zaftig side (I’m not going to name names….Oliver), I’m not too sure how it would hold up.

The Mod Kat litter box is very interesting but I still haven’tfigured out how to get inside it.

The Catit 2.0 Wellness center speaks to me, I mean what feline could resist something that offers relaxation and grooming?

The Pets Best Hidden litter box is nice however The Female Human purchased one of these for us and Oliver and I spent copious amounts of time chewing away and getting read of the faux palm frond on top (just a word to the wise pet owner)

My favorite in this list is the Frolic Cat toy. We have one of these and we love it, although we refer to it as the “red dot machine”.

What is this bug they named flu?

Hi there furiends,
I do not understand why our Humans continue to chase this bug they call “flu”. I sometimes despair of every understanding them. They say they’ve caught this bug, they lay around and complain and they sneeze a lot. And when they sneeze (especially The Female Human), oh my whiskers what a loud and scary sound! I have to run 

Someone save me, The Female Human is sneezing again!

It is not fun when The Humans catch this bug, there is coughing, sneezing, complaining and a definite decrease in service for The Tribe of Five. Conclusion, catching this bug is no good for the felines or our Humans. 

Despite the ill effects of catching this bug, The Humans insist on catching it again and again and the drama starts again. Good grief, our Humans are fairly intelligent, once they’ve captured this insect and the results were so negative, why in the world would they catch it again?

I’m not coming out until The Humans are done catching this bug! -Oliver

The Humans are letting things slide and I know our Purrsonal Assistant has been remiss in checking in with all our blogging feline furiends.  This situation is
unconscionable and The Tribe of Five is quite concerned about our onine presence. (Don’t get me wrong, we care about The Humans too but there are things that need to be done!). 

 

Someone please let me know when The Humans are done catching the bug.

And so we wait for the Humans to leave that darn bug alone and get back to work….er health. If any of my feline friends have humans who like to catch this bug, please do whatever you can to intervene!
