Hi There Folks,
Alberto here with my favorite feline tidbits from the web.
Modern, Architect-Designed Outdoor Cat Dwellings for Charity – Design Milk
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
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
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
If 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
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.
