The First Ever NY Cat Film Festival – Metro

NYCAtFilmFestival

Finally New York is getting wise to the idea that cats rule! They’ve had a Dog Film Festival for the last three years and this has really gotten my whiskers in a twist. Well thank goodness, someone got a clue and the FIRST Cat Film Festival will be held in New York at the Chelsea SVA Theater in December!  And all I can say is, “It’s about time!” If you want to learn more you can watch a promo for the event here.

Domestic Violence and Pets – The PAWS Act

My human attends a conference for pet writers and bloggers called BlogPaws and at this conference, she learned about pets of domestic abuse survivors. Did  you know that often, people in abusive situations have to choose between their safety and their pet? Did you know that in most shelters, domestic abuse survivors cannot take their pets because there is no place for the animals? How sad to force someone to part with the one thing that offers them unconditional love!

The Pet and Women Safety Act (PAWS Act, for short) is attempting to amend the federal criminal code to broaden the definition of stalking to include the reasonable fear of death or serious bodily injury to a person’s pet. Additionally, it would expand interstate violations of a protection order to also cover pets. Lastly, it directs the Department of Agriculture to award grants for shelter, housing assistance, and support services for survivors of domestic violence with pets. This is a law The Tribe of Five can wholeheartedly support and we hope you will sign the petition and support it too. And how about checking with your local shelter and finding out if they have resources for the pets of domestic violence survivors?

Purr Minister 2017 – Metro.co.uk 

black cat named midnight new purr minister

The only kind of purrlitical stuff I’m interested in is the feline variety. For instance, I was Oliver’s campaign manager when he ran for Purresident with the Kitty Kat Party last year.  Evidently, there are purrlitical felines in the  UK as well and they were vying for the title of  Purr Minister.

The 2017 Purr Minister campaign ended last week. There were six moggies who competed for the Purr Minister crown and each wrote a Manifursto explaining why they deserved to be voted the most fabulous feline in Westminster.  The winner was selected by the public and it was a hotly contested race.

This year’s winner, garnered 49 percent of the public vote. Two paws up for the new Purr Minister, Midnight!

In this village in Mandya, cats are worshipped as gods – Times of India

FelineTemple

Well my feline friends, if you feel as though you’re not getting enough respect in your household you may want to consider a move to Bekkalale village, India, where cats are literally put on a pedestal. Bekkalale, worships the cat as a form of goddess Mangamma and has no less than three temples dedicated to felines.  Humans are harshly punished for harming cats in this village and every year there is a festival to honor the majestic feline. (Which of course, is our due!)

Seattle’s Newest Cat Cafe Offers Beer, Japanese Snacks and a Whole Lot of Adorable-Seattle Magazine

Those cool cats in Seattle always seem to be on the cutting edge of hipness. Case in point, the Neko Cat Cafe that serves beer and snacks! The owner and founder of this cat cafe, Caitlin Unsell, was inspired by the cat cafes in Japan.  Neko is the third cat cafe in the Seattle area but the felines you meet at the Neko cafe are extra special.

Unsell partnered with Regional Animal Services of King County to help the cafe kitties find furever homes. All of the cats Neko (which means “cat” in Japanese) are diagnosed with the feline leukemia virus which is a disease that poses long term health issues but does not keep the cats from living long, happy lives.  People often pass over cats with health issues in shelters and Unsell hopes to change this by giving the cat loving community a chance to meet and know the felines at her cafe.

The cafe has two areas, one for the cafe and the other for the cats. The  happy felines have a long bank of windows at pavement level for great canine and human viewing.
I am overwhelmed when I realize how many great humans there are out there who are not just dedicating themselves to finding furever homes for felines but finding homes for felines that are usually passed over for adoption. Two paws up for the Neko Cat Cafe.

Hi There Folks,
Alberto here with my favorite feline tidbits from the web.
Enjoy!

Modern, Architect-Designed Outdoor Cat Dwellings for Charity – Design Milk

gray tabby kitten in fancy cat condo
Architects  pulled out all the creative stops when they designed, built and donated unique and functional outdoor dwellings for cats.  Even celebrities got into the act and they decorated and auctioned off food bowls to benefit local shelters.  Thirteen cat-tastic dwellings were created this year. Which one is your favorite?

 Miniature Furniture Designed Especially for Cats – Maxim

felinebed
Once you have that condo purchased and set up, you’re going to need to furnish it and there’s a Japanese furniture manufacturer, Okawa City who can handle the task.  Purrrsonally, I’m a fan of the kitty sized bed and the matching nightstand and lamp. Check them out and watch the video  of felines enjoying their new furnishings.

Paddles, The “First Cat” of New Zealand – HuffPost

paddles the yellow and white first cat of New Zealand

I attempt to stay away from purrrlitical things here but my love of working cats forces me to report on purrrlitical felines. Paddles will be New Zealand’s “First Cat” when his human, labor party leader Jacinda Ardern becomes Prime Minister.  And that’s not the only thing unusual about Paddles, she has opposable thumbs so I’m thinking she will be typing her own purrrlitical announcements on her Twitter account @FirstCatofNZ

The Camping With Cats Instagram Page is Purrrfect – Cheezeburger

gray tabby camping in winterIf you follow me Wednesday meanderings you know I love to feature adventure cats and this week I hit the jackpot! There is an Instagram page with camping cats (a few that I’ve featured in past Walk Through The Web Wednesday posts).  I am inspired and am looking forward to having my human providing me with a little adventure in the snow this winter!

 

 

German Man Planning to Open Sweden’s First Cat Cafe – The Local

yellow and white tabby at Stockholms first cat cafe

Dirk Lüders visited cat cafes all over the world and decided that Sweden needed one too. The Cat Corner will be open soon and will be more focused on the “cat” than the “café” part and he hopes to raise awareness about the problem of homeless animals in Sweden.

So he started work on The Cat Corner and hopes to open the country’s very first cat café in the coming months. According to figures from the cat charity Svekatt, there are 150,000 homeless cats in Sweden and 30,000 in the Stockholm area alone, and those numbers are growing. The café will allow people who can’t have cats to enjoy feline time and will work with local shelters to get cats adopted.

Methinks it’s time for my humans to plan an international cat café trip..but wait, that would mean they’d have to a cat sitter for The Tribe of Five so maybe they’ll have to go one at a time. In the meantime, the humans will just have to follow this cat cafe on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook.

12 Cats in Hong Kong You Need to Know – Postsize

S. of A get on this bandwagon!

This is a delightful story from another Far East neighbor, Japan. All that “fighting like cats and dogs” rhetoric is blown with this story. These two are fast friends and close furry family members. Do you live with a canine you love? Post some photos on our Feline Opines Facebook page and share the love with everyone!

 

 

 

firehouseFirehouse Kitty Brings Love to Fire House – Monsters and Critics

My humans love to watch the show, “My Cat From Hell” (not that any of the Tribe of Five would EVER need the advice of Jackson Galaxy for any bad behavior). They watch it for educational purposes only. Well this kitty was featured on the show not because he has issues but because he brings so much love and healing to the firefighters .  Host Jackson Galaxy says: “You know, one of the things that makes Flame, for me, a cat from Heaven, is to see a bunch of guys gathered around a cat and just having them melt — and a bunch of tough-guys at that.” We don’t have enough cat guys out there flying that flag and saying ‘come on, man, cat’s are for men too.”  This feline couldn’t agree more!

Browser the tabby cat works in a Texas libraryLibrary Cat Loses His Job…and Then…- Cuteness

I have featured many felines with jobs in my Wednesday wanderings. Browser, the library cat had been working in a library in a small Texas town for quite a while but then, on June 14th, some human named Elzie Clements proposed a motion to the city council that Browser should be evicted.  He was given 30 days notice.  Well, after local folks decried this motion in person at the council meeting, a petition was created and they received 700 signatures. But wait, there’s more…more than 12,000 Browser supporters signed the petition and then a pro-Browser Facebook page was launched and the rest, as the humans say, is history. People from all over the world sent their support for Browser to keep his job. After all this and the thousands of messages the mayor received, a special meeting was called on July 30th (which was broadcast) and the council voted unanimously to reinstate Browser.  My human is always saying that people should be engaged in their local politics, now I’m beginning to understand what she means, sometimes you just have to get purrrrlitical!

orange tabby Mr. Wu works in a New Orleans bar9 Cats With Cushy Jobs – Mental Floss

Browser isn’t the only feline with a good job.  I enjoyed reading about all these “purrrfressonal felines” but I think my favorite is Mr. Wu.  Mr. Wu works at Molly’s Market in New Orleans. He arrived during hurricane Katrina looking for shelter and never left. When Mr. Wu chooses to take a break from his work at the bar, he is served fresh cream in a go cup.

Hello Friends,

Alberto here with my Wednesday purrrrusal of all things feline on the world wide web. Without fur-ther ado, let’s get started.

Cleveland Heights Cat Shreds on Skateboard – Cattime

We felines are an athletic lot and Daryl from Northeast Ohio proves my point! He’s quite adept at skateboarding and about as fearless a feline as you’d ever hope to meet.

 

 

Cats at Westminster Dog Show??!! – Today.com

WestminsterWell folks, it’s the end of an era and cats prove that they are taking over the world. The famous Westminster Dog show actually featured felines this year?  If you’re wondering why, allow me to enlighten you. Now before any of you canine fans get your tails in a twist, yes, for the first time in the events 140 year history felines were in attendance but they did not compete, they were part of a “meet the breeds” event. Still, not too shabby for us felines and who knows, today the Westminster Dog Show, tomorrow the Iditarod (snuggled safely inside the sleigh, of course.)

The NYPD’s Friskiest Officer – New York Post

NYPDcat
Those of you who follow my Wednesday posts know how much I love stories about working cats. This little guy. Martin, (officially Officer Martin D. Costanza) the handsome Tabby was found by some NYPD officers when he was a kitten. The officers convinced the powers that be that Officer Costanza would be a morale booster and that he is. Every morning, Officer Martin makes an appearance at roll call to “inspect everyone” and spread a little joy in the station house.

 

 

Japanese Company Fills Offices with Cats to Help Employees Unwind and Improve Productivity – Oddity Central

office-cats3While we’re on the subject as felines as job morale boosters, check out this Japanese office that “employs” nine felines. In addition to the furry feline employees, this office celebrates every day as “bring your pet to work day”. And if you aren’t impressed enough with this feline friendly employer, get a load of this…if you don’t have your own feline, the company offers a 5,000 yen monthly bonus ($42.00), called a “cat bonus” for anyone who is willing to adopt a cat of their own! I think a few U.S. companies ought to adopt this excellent practice!

 

Cabinet Office Cats Evie and Ossie Join Whitehall Mousers – BBC 

WhiteHallCatsJust when you think you’ve read about all the pawlitical cats in the UK, there’s a new  job announcement. These two felines, hired as mousers, have the run of Whitehall and they seem to be enjoying their job.

Evie and Ossie are the first to come from the Celia Hammond Animal Trust – Larry, Gladstone and Palmerston (all purrlitical cat’s I’ve featured in the past) came from the better-known Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.

Evie is Ossie’s mother – a Cabinet Office spokeswoman said the cats would be looked after with donations from staff and were “settling in really well”. Concatulations to my moggie friends across the pond for their prestigious new careers.

 

 

Celebrating Purrrresident’s Day

img_1444Hello World,

Oliver here. Since today is Purresident’s Day I found myself reminiscing about my run for Alpha of the Kitty Kat Pawty.

It was a great ride, I worked with my feline staff to purrrfect my purrlitical platform (at the time I threw my straw hat into the ring, I was only a kitten) so the advice of those older and wiser was greatly needed.

Tucker offered some sage advice, stating that  if a candidate would guarantee a catio on every front porch, a home and food for every feral cat and a bird feeder in front of every window (kitty cable) that cat-i-date would receive his vote.

I no sooner began my campaign when I discovered my feline competition, Limberbutt McCubbins.  As I purrused his platform I found areas where we agreed and other areas of great difference. For instance, McCubbins’ passion for homeless felines is one I share.  I was disturbed however, on his support of a return to cat space flights. Never in my wildest kitty dreams have I thought hurling hapless felines into space is a good idea.

img_1924

My furry campaign manager was  quite pleased to announce my running-mate, a sage and beautiful feline named Olive from Three Chatty Cats. Olive brought some new ideas to the campaign. She advocated for an official “Tortie Day” and promised to organize “Tortie Tuesdays”. She focused on homeless kitties and wants to see more clicker training in shelters for felines. She also promoted a mandatory “Tuna Day”. All sound ideas that all felines could get behind.

 

 

OllieOliveBtn
The humans had campaign buttons made and handed them out at the BlogPaws conference, provided them to Blog fans and worked hard for the cause. (Photo of actual button on the left.)

 

All in all it was a great run. I gave what I felt to be an excellent concession speech and made it clear that I have not given up my purrlitical aspirations.

sleeping black and white catWill I run for purrresident again? I haven’t decided but I can assure all my cat-stituents that there will be some purrlitical campaign in my future.  As I look at my options I am incorporating a strict regime of rest and reflection.

I leave you with my campaign slogan and wish you all a great Purresident’s Day!

“We must vote for tuna, vote for catnip, vote for a brighter future for all cats.”.
Purresidential Catidate. Kitty Cat Pawty, Oliver

Walk Through The Web Wednesday 2/8

siamese cat on a leash walking through a garden

Hello World,
Alberto here. I must say I’m looking fondly at my logo photo as we have had so much snow in our neck of the woods some parts of where we live have been declared disaster areas. Also, the humans have been doing a lot of complaining about this thing they do outside called “shoveling”. Evidently there is some connection with this “shoveling” activity and painful backs. Oliver and I sit on the window sill and watch them and we appreciate them moving outside for our amusement and entertainment. In our book, this “shoveling” activity is a great spectator sport.

But I digress, here are the little feline related gems I’ve found during my regular purrrrusal of the information highway. Enjoy!
Your Friend,

Cats Can Now Stay in A Fancy 5 Star Hotel – Metro UK    

five star hotel in Kuala Lumpur for catsI’m not a big fan of travel, as a matter of fact, I hate anything that has to do with a carrier and a car but I must say, if the humans ever decide to take me to Kuala Lumpur, I’m demanding that they get me a reservation at Catzonia. This is every traveling cat’s dream with 35 bedrooms, airport pick-up, spa treatments and a lounge area. Heck, with complimentary airport pick-up, the humans could send me on a little getaway all by myself. This place caters to the most finicky of felines and even offers a kitty dating service.  And, if the humans are worried about me traveling by myself, Catzonia has that covered as well, all rooms have 24 hour CCTV coverage that can be watched via iPhone so the humans need not worry about me. All that luxury is making me rethink my aversion to travel. Pack my bags humans, I’m off to Kuala Lumpur!

The Latest Fashion Trend for Cats, Knitted Scarves – Rocket News 24            

calico cat in hand knitted cat neck scarfI fancy myself as a fashionable sort of guy so when I discovered this new trend I found it quite interesting (especially in light of the cold climate where we live and the fact that the humans have something called a “nest” that makes the house cooler when they are at work. I have no idea why they call it a nest, there’s not a bird in sight but I do have to say that a cat shouldn’t have to snuggle on a faux fur throw in the sofa just to stay warm until the humans return home!)  During the colder times of the day, a scarf might just come in handy. Valentines Day is coming soon and I think every human should consider getting a Nekko muffler for their beloved felines (at $17.50 each it’s a deal!)

Scollar Mini, Smart Collar for Cats (and Small Dogs)-Gadgets & Wearables  

calico cat with scollar that tracks cat, health and much moreThis is a multi function collar that is really made more for the convenience of the humans than us felines. It has many functions and is run with a smart phone app and can track us, train us (well, the training thing must be for the dogs, certainly NOT the felines), monitor our activity (hmmm, does that mean the humans will know when I’m on the kitchen counter?), monitor our health, open the pet door, dispense food communicating (not sure how this works unless the collar thingy speaks fluent feline), has an anti-barking reminder (again, this is for the canines only), and perimeter barriers (again, this must be for the doggies, cat’s do not recognize barriers).  The collar has something called a display that tells other humans where you live and how to contact your people in case you just manage to slip through the legs of any company that comes to the front door. You can’t buy this thing yet but when it’s ready the cost will be about $99.00. Frankly, I’d rather have a new cat scratcher.

David Cameron, “I Miss Larry The Cat” – The Telegraph

former prime minister David Cameron and Larry the 10 downing street catYou know how much I love working cats so I had to feature this article about Larry, the Cat at 10 Downing Street. Although Larry is a public official, he does have an important job as Chief Mouser. There were rumors circulating that the former Prime Minister was no great fan of Larry’s but a recent interview has shown this not to be true. Cameron noted that he made a special effort to take a cat “selfie” before he left his position.  Larry and Palmerston, the Foreign Office Cat had some issues (which I reported on earlier) but all seems to be resolved at this time. The bigger question is the new PM, Theresa May and the less than enthusiastic reception she gave Larry, stating, that she’s more of a dog person. I have one thing to say to Theresa May, unless she softens her stance toward Larry, I will make it my mission to stand in front of the TV so that the male human is unable to watch Prime Minister’s questions. I may be a cat but I have certain purrrrlitical views when it comes to my fellow felines.

 

The Felines Opine On 2016

tukcrownTucker Opines

Well, I must say, 2016 was fairly much like 2015. I retained my lofty position on the red chair in the living room, received treats regularly and even strolled (under human supervision) on the upstairs deck.

The “little guys” as we call them continued to be annoying and always  up to  some kitten shenanigans  but they do recognize my authority as the Alpha of The Tribe of Five and now that they’re just over a year, they are settling down a bit.

And they are making themselves useful. Oliver has decided he likes my prescription food and this is quite convenient for me.. Each morning, when the female human comes out of the bedroom, Oliver races down the hallway and does a little dance by the food bowl. The female human obediently goes to the pantry in the laundry room, grabs the food and fills both of our bowls. Having Oliver around is never having to say, “I’m hungry”.

I’m looking forward to another relaxing year as Alpha as I take up my post on the red chair (or, as the humans refer to it, the “throne”), watch the household antics of Oliver and Alberto, receive my treats and have a perpetually full food bowl.

Jasmine Opines

Siamese cat Jasmine in fake nose and glassesWell, I am still living in the human’s bedroom but things have progressed. If you’re wondering why I live in the bedroom, you can read about it in Amelia’s story.

There have been some breakthroughs in 2016. The humans invite Lily into the bedroom frequently in the evenings and things are progressing enough that  I will actually come out from under the bed when she’s there (although sometimes she forgets she’s supposed to show me deference and chases after me, resulting in a loud a hissy fit and a big “fluffy tail”).. The female human is also leaving the bedroom door open periodically (when she can watch Lily and make sure she doesn’t waltz in.)  I am optimistic about the future.

Siamese cat sitting at a snowy windowThere is much in my two-room environment to keep me interested, the automatic red dot thingy Siamese cat sitting oi chair in front of widow in winterthat twirls and spins and throws red dots down the hallway, huge windows and wide window ledges that look out to the woods around the house.  I often have visitors come by. Some are felines, some are birds, some are squirrels and there is the occasional raccoon as well.

My brother Tucker comes and visits and sleeps overnight, as does Oliver and Alberto.  Tucker sleeps in one of the cushy cat beds but  Alberto and Oliver are a bit disruptive so they end up being escorted out of the room at some time in the wee hours.

The female human showed me that you don’t have to go out to do good work for pets. She and her sister founded a lost pet social media organization for our area and many pets have been reunited with their families thanks to all the good people who help.

All in all, it’s been a good year and much more interesting than last year. The female human told me that when I write my year end comments for 2017, she hopes I’ll be telling you how I roam around the house again.

Lily Opines

cat with New Years hat and glassesIt’s been a good year. I’ve been in the human’s bedroom many times and I’m thinking Jasmine and I may be friends after all (as long as I don’t forget myself and  chase her).

I have a nice routine with the female human. Each evening after she finishes making dinner, she goes downstairs and gets a pail full of cat food. She calls this “junk food” and won’t let us eat it on a regular basis, but she does give Alberto and I a few bits. If Tucker deigns to sashay down the stairs to join us, he gets a few pieces too. She then takes the pail and puts the food down on the patio for our masked friends. One of them comes with her little masked babies and I like to sit by the sliding glass doors and chat with them about woodland life versus indoor life. Seems to me I have the better deal.

The female human’s story “All My Children Wear Fur Coats” was published in February in the newest Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover’s soul book. This experience made her even more interested in writing about and for cats (it’s because of this that she is our purrrrsonal assistant and types for us in this blog). She was even on several radio shows talking about the fabulous Tribe of Five and is now working on something she refers to as a “cozy mystery” that has two cats as main characters (I hope one of them is me).

This month was a bit stressful. Some of the human’s relatives visited, and, although I am sure they are wonderful people, I did not want to be bothered so I spent the time downstairs, burrowed under the sofa cover. The Tribe of Five produced a manual for guests who visit homes with felines, you may want to ensure your humans read this.

It’s been a purrfectly wonderful  year and I look forward to a purrfectly wonderful 2017 as well.

Oliver Opines

Black and white cat with new years mask and hatI would say that I probably had the most exciting year as I threw my hat in the ring as the Kitty Cat Party cat-i-date for purresident. My running mate, Olive, from Three Chatty Cats, and I even sent our human to a conference called Blogpaws with campaign buttons to spread the word about our platform.

Olive and I presented a complete platform only to find that the Today Show featured another feline who was running and never even mentioned my name so I had to take them to task, sheesh, what’s a cat got to do to get some press coverage?

Sadly, my running mate and I did not win but this does black and white kitten runs for presidentnot mean that I have abandoned all my purrlitical aspirations. I have been reading about cats that are mayors, customs officials and even a Chief Mouser for the British Cabinet.  Now that I have some experience, I’m thinking I might just be successful at this purrlitical thing.

No matter what I decide to do in 2017, it will be a great year and I look forward to opining all about it.

Alberto Opines

Siamese cat in bag wearing party hatIt was a great year. I was the official spokes-purrson for the Kitty Cat Pawty campaign and I quite enjoyed all the attention.  Even though my brother Oliver didn’t win, he told me there would be a job for me if he ever entered the purrlitical arena again.

Things in the spring and summer were grand. The humans bought us a portable catio and we all enjoyed
bird and squirrel watching on the front porch and upstairs deck in complete safety. Ever since the female human took a class about the concept of “Fearless” cat raising, she’s made sure our home is as fear free as possible.

The next exciting thing I experienced was being able to Siamese ca walking on leash in the gardenstroll through the front garden with a harness and leash. I quite enjoy myself when the female human takes me out to explore.

I had fun with the male human showing him how to pluck the string things on his guitar, we made some lovely mewsic together

img_2553Fall was a bit dicey. First the humans tried to put some ridiculous thing on me that they called a “dinosaur costume”. I was having none of it and, as you can see by my expression, I conveyed my unhappiness quite clearly.

Then, the female human came out into the living room one night made up like a feline. I was completely gobsmacked (as my British moggie friends would say). At first I was freaked out. Was she going through some strange human to feline transformation? If she was transforming into a cat, who would take over all the things she does for us? (I don’t trust siamese cat and woman with cat ears and cat make-upthe male human to do this). Once I calmed down and figured out she was not cat-morphing I became a bit annoyed. Was she mocking us? It was a terrible “faux paws”  and one, I am fairly certain, the female human will not repeat.

As I lounge by the fire, I am thinking what a happy cat I am and I think 2017 will be even better.

A final note from the #TribeOfFive

Thanks to all our friends out there in the blogosphere. We love the notes we receive from other felines (and other non-feline creatures…and even humans)  and we look forward to entertaining and enlightening you all from our little corner of the world in 2017.

Purrs & Meows,
Tucker, Jasmine, Lily, Alberto & Oliver
