Walk Through the Web Wednesday 5/29

siamese cat on a leash walking through a garden

Hello Furiends,
Wednesday came fast this week, I guess that Monday off got us all discombobulated. It’s been a busy day. Oliver went to the vet because The Female Human is concerned about his portly proportions. Ollie tried to tell me what a harrowing experience he had but when the video of his visit surfaced, I called “foul” on his description of the visit. You decide for yourself.




The good news is that Ollie’s blood work came back A-OK and The Female Human is relieved but the bad news is that Ollie is now on a diet. This should be interesting. This was his reaction when he was told he would be dieting.


D-I-E-T is a four-letter word! Oliver

Poor Ollie. At least I hope he enjoys my web wanderings this week.

Kitty Ends Up On The Wrong Side of The Law


Oh how I love it when you humans are creative. If there ever was a prize for the BEST “found cat” post, this is it. Big Boy Bubbles even managed to land himself a number! I sure hope his family finds him but if not, he will be put up for adoption at the San Diego Humane Escondido campus. 

Company Gets It’s Whiskers in a Twist and Sues over the Name of a Cafe 


Santa Cruz coffee shop Cat and Cloud Coffee says it received a cease and desist from Caterpillar Inc. — because they use the word “CAT” in their shop name and merchandise.

The large corporation has trademarked “CAT” and has taken legal action against the small business to stop them from using it. Owners of the small business say they first received the letter in August of 2018.

What hubris this company has…how can you trademark the word “cat”..are you kitten me??? And could someone please explain to me how there is any similarity between this café and Caterpillar???  Caterpillar machines, I hiss in your general direction.

Cats Gain the Upper Paw in Japan


It’s official according to a nationwide survey on cats and dogs as pets that was conducted by the Japan Pet Food Association, cats rock in Japan! The total number of dogs in 2018 was 8,903,000 but the total number of cats was 9,649,000. There are lots of charts and figures for you humans that like that sort of stuff. As for me, all I care about is that cat’s rule in Japan!

Cats (and Dogs) in Tornado Affected Oklahoma Are Sent to Maryland and Virginia


The Humane Society of the United States assisted in transporting cats and other animals from shelters in tornado affected Oklahoma areas and placed them with shelters and rescues in Virginia and Maryland.

This allows the shelters in impacted areas to have more room to take in displaced animals. By transporting adoptable animals out of shelters in these communities, the opportunity for them to find a furever home is increased. And, then shelter capacity is increased in order for displaced animals to stay safe until they’re reunited with their families.  Two paws up for the Humane Society of the United States and the shelters that are helping.

Yoga With Cats Craze Spreading to Europe


Human, why is this block on my yoga mat? Alberto

The yoga with cats craze has hit France. The Female Human never gets to do any yoga without the full attention of The Tribe of Five. Instructors say that having cats around enhances the feeling of wellbeing. If this is true, why is she always yelling at us to move? We felines are natural yoga masters, just watch us stretch. The Female Human needs to chill.

  1. Well, i think Oliver will do just fine on his diet, it will make him healthier, and he might not admit it but it will make him feel better, too.

    The company Caterpillar can trademark the capitalized CAT the way they use it on their machines, but to trademark the whole word would be ludicrous. Let’s hope a judge agrees and tells them to knock it off.

    Excellent work, HSUS!

    • Thanks so much, I have to say our vet place is pawsome, they are a fearless practice which means we don’t get scared (and the rest of The Tribe doesn’t hiss at me when I get home).

  5. Oliver – We feel your pain. Mom changed our kibble to a weight maintenance version and it’s definitely different. We wish you luck. Purrs, Snoops and Kommando Kitty

    Meanwhile, Caterpillar needs to get over itself. Are they going to sue every cat cafe in the US? the world? A lot of them us cat in their names. Maybe we could all change our names to kats so they don’t confuse us with earth movers.
