It’s Wednesday again although with the world so topsy turvey, it’s hard for this feline to figure out what day it is!
LIfe for the Tribe is a bit boring. The Female Human is home a lot more but the dispensing of snacks has not increased and I find this unacceptable.
It’s also been a bit more boring than usual and I have been forced to be creative about finding entertainment.
There is one thing though. The humans have been meowing about social distancing as though they invented it. We felines have been masters at social distancing for centuries.
That’s it for the news from our neck of the woods. Let’s check out what’s going on in the rest of the world.
The cats at The Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, Oklahoma are feeling lonely and missing their human visitors. They would love to hear from you and if send them a letter they’ll reply through April 26th.
Cleo and Perilla are two of the three cats who live and “work” in the gardens. Their job is to keep the grounds pest free.
Perilla is the cat in charge. She likes to snooperviser and watch the other cats work, but she will hunt to earn her keep. Cleo (short for Cleome) is the youngest feline. She was dropped off at the museum as a kitten and has had a loving home there ever since. She shows her gratitude by bring an avid hunter.
When a man built two luxury high-rise towers for his cat he created such a stir that people have been begging him for his building plans. Rob Coutu from Windsor, Connecticut set out to create something extraordinary for his cat Zach, a Savannah so he could indulge his favorite activity-climbing.
These towers are amazing with balconies, decks for Zack to hang out on, 3D printed windows, window boxes with flowers and a bridge that connects the two buildings.
Rob created a Facebook group where Zach posted a mock-up design for his ideal kitty digs. The group now has 15,000 members.
Now before you humans decide to begin building, you need to know that the building project has cost Rob about $3,500.00 so far, not to mention the hours of labor.
Construction began last May and improvements continue (you can follow the progress in Rob’s Facebook group. And if cost is no issue for you, you’ll be happy to know that Rob is considering making these towers for people as a custom install.
The Tribe loves these towers, what do you think?
A kitty in St. George, Utah got herself in quite a pickle and her human had to call the Fire Department. They responded to the call arriving with a standard fire truck and crew but quickly realized the a ladder truck would be needed for the rescue.
The cat named D-O-G was so scared she offered no resistance to her rescuers. She was handed off to her owner after her hour-long ordeal. You can see photos of the entire exciting rescue.
Paws up to these fire fighters!
21 Mother’s Day Gifts for Cat Moms
There are some purrfect gifts in this list some for your cat mom, and some for the felines (because if your feline is happy, you’re a happy cat mom!). Our cat mom really liked the kitty yoga idea because, for some unknown reason, she has an issue wih us trying to take over her yoga mat when she’s using it.
Do not despair if your human doesn’t do yoga, there are all kinds of other purrfectly wonderful gifts like cat shaped tea bags, a customized paw print necklace, a tiny head massager designed for felines and silky cat pj’s.
Once you’ve decided what you want to get your cat mom just meow into Alexa and have it delivered. I’m sure she’ll thank you.
Felines, have you noticed your human drinking alone during these times of isolation? Well. Apollo Peak wants to put a stop to that. Your human can order Pinot Meow, Purrseco, Catburnet and other wines made just for felines. These wines are made with ingredients that are good for felines (like beets and catnip in Pinot Meow).
Just a note though. Evidently there are a lot of wine sipping felines out there so the retail store for these wines, Pet Wine Shop, has some cat wines on back order because of their very popular special #quarantineandchill free cat wine offer.
Here’s to all our wine drinking furiends – clink clink.
