Time to Pawty-Linky Party 4/15

Five cats in hats celebrating Linky Party

Aaaaaaaand, it’s pawty time again! Lily here hosting this party. I’m all decked out in my Easter bonnet so naturally I’m the most likely pick for hosting. First, I want to share my three faves from the last party, ‘hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

The Catburry Bunny Auditions – 15andmeowing.com

gray and white cat in bunny ears

My only complaint about this post is that I didn’t get to the audition. I saw so many great catidates, I wouldn’t have been able to choose just one but IMHO cats make the BEST Catburry Bunnies and there should be more next Easter! I do have to say though, this purrticular contestant looks less than enthusiastic.

Sunday Selfies – Purrseidon

We felines are great fans of the selfie, I mean, look at that gorgeous profile! I also enjoyed the other selfies except for that one with the loooooooong nose, kinda’ freaked meowout, if truth be told but, as you can see from Purrseidon’s picture on her blog page, she is one very brave cat, definitely braver than this feline!

Sunday Selfies, Maverick & Charlie – Animal Shelter Volunteer Life

I know, this is another Sunday selfie post but I was taken with these handsome fellows. Maverick in purrrticular, reminds me of our very own Alberto. If the truth be known, every one of the Tribe of Five has some Siamese, even Oliver who resembles a Holstein more than a Siamese! I sure hope these handsome fellows find forever homes soon!

And Now…..Let’s Party!

The first post comes from 15 and Meowing…..“Are You A Good Mouser?”

Jacke the tabby cat sitting in catnip in the gardenThe humans at our house are always grumbling about the money they spend on the Tribe of Five and often threaten to find us jobs. Well, my feline friends, here’s a chance to prove your worth to the humans in cold, hard cash! $500.00 cash for the top cat mouser! Just have the humans take a video of you mouse hunting but hurry, contest deadline is Sept. 15. We think our cousin Jake (photo at left) should enter. Our aunt calls him a “weapon of mouse destruction”. I would suggest,Cuz, that you spend a little less time in the catnip and a little more time honing  your craft.

Chirpy Cats has a great post about multiple cat dynamics….The Scent of Harmony, The Grooming Cat. 

ChirpyCatsThe Tribe of Five has some grooming rituals but we never realized there was intention in the way that happens. And, with a Tribe of Five, sometimes there’s a little issue with the harmony so this article was very helpful!  Chirpy Cats say that “In every multi-cat household there is that one cat that unwittingly performs a very important task – sharing and maintaining the communal scent of the whole group through grooming.” Now the humans are watching us like hawks trying to figure out who that designated feline is in our Tribe!

Three Chatty Cats has a wonderful story about the human-feline bond entitled, A Tale of Two Kitties by Jacques Bouchard
2016-08-31_jacquesbouchard_01

I’m a sucker for a good, heartwarming story and this one is just that. If you ever had any doubt that we felines can impact the lives of you humans in a big way, this story will convince you. I know how much our humans have learned from the felines who went before us and I like to hear them speak fondly of Miss. P and Buster. We kitties have an important part to play in the lives of our humans!

 

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat ‘s new discussion, They’ve Landed is kinda’ scary

BearCatMomma Kat and Bear Cat are always having conversations about all kinds of stuff. This one was a little freaky as Bear is insistent that there are aliens in the house and their home base is the dishwasher. Now Oliver and I have often wondered if some of those loud machines in our house are alien habitats so as soon as the human finished reading this to me I did a complete alien sweep of the house! (Suggest you do the same.)

Traveling Cats has an amazing tale of The Cat From Gimmelwald (Switzerland)

gimmelwald_switzerland_mountainsNow, I am great with leading my humans down the stairs, up the stairs and into the bathroom but this cat gives leading a whole new meaning. She’s a local mountain guide cat and she recently made world-wide news when she guided a lost hiker down the mountain. Wow, you go little tapfere Katze. (the female human says this means brave cat in German)
