Hello There Furiends,
It’s that time again for me to share with you the fabulous feline news on the web. I hope you enjoy this week’s entries.

Cats on The Page at the British Library

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again..those British humans know how to celebrate felines! We felines have been very litter-ary throughout the ages and this exhibit celebrates this. Alison Bailey, the lead curator of this exhibit says, “Cats on the Page showcases the light-hearted side of the British Library’s world-class collections through a selection of just some of the hundreds of paws prowling the pages of its books and manuscripts.’

I think our Female Human should get herself over there posthaste and bring us a first-hand report. As for me, I prefer the comfort of my house to the cramped accommodations of a cat travel carrier!

Exotic cats at Big Cat Rescue get very own Christmas trees

This one is for all the selfish humans (you know who you are) who deprive us domesticated kitties of the joy and pleasure of a Christmas tree. Just look at our big cousins and how much fun they are having. The Tribe of Five, sadly has no tree to enjoy. Why it’s Christmas kitty abuse!

Be sure and go to the link and see how much these big guys enjoy their trees.

Cats — yes cats — to perform in agility course at Deer Park show

Yes, yes, I can imagine you humans scoffing right now but the good folks at the Gulf Coast Feline Foundation will turn scoffers into believers.

The Jan. 26-27 event, “Felines, Football , & Fun’ will be the venue for agile kitties.  You humans want to lump all cats into one purrsonality category but anyone who knows us knows that we are all very different.  Just look at me and my brother Oliver…need I say more?

So take your scoffing selves off to the feline agility ring at this event and let us show you what we can do.  There will be lots of food, fun and an opportunity to give some felines furever homes.

Cat Accidentally Shipped 700 Miles from Home After Sneaking into Box

We cats love boxes. Boxes are benign. Boxes make us happy. There is no danger in boxes. At least that’s what I used to think until I heard Baloo’s story! This handsome fellow

This Halifax kitty decided to take a cat nap in a box and ended up far away from his home when his human sealed him in a box that she was sending to a friend in Alberta.

The poor human was desperate when Baloo didn’t come home the next day and she desperately searched the neighborhood for him. Imagine how happy she was when she received a call from a facility in Montreal. Baloo was well looked after by the local SPCA, who treated him like royalty, and even microchipped him for free so he can be found more easily if he takes any more impromptu vacations.

So my box loving feline furiends, let Baloo’s tale be a warning….make sure you know what box you are sleeping in!

A cat cafe has opened in Stratford-upon-Avon and it’s the first in the West Midlands

Oh my whiskers! I’ve reported about many fantastic cat cafe’s but this one may just be my favorite! The Female Human has been in Stratford- upon-Avon , the place where one of her favorite writers came from. What a clever idea and how wonderful that these cat cafes embrace the culture and history of their area. You know, I might even let The Female Human put me in a travel carrier just to visit this wonderful place.

  1. Poor Baloo! We once got a call from a local company that had just received a shipment of barrels of coils for industrial use. A mama cat had thought inside that roll of coil was a great, safe place to have her babies. Of course, they got shipped out, and i ended up bottle raising them and the shelter found good homes for them all. Still, i wonder about that poor mama cat and what she thought.
