Well Hello There Friends,
Since Wednesday didn’t fall on International Cat Day (which was yesterday) I thought I’d continue the celebration and share with you some of my favorite posts from International Cat Day. Enjoy!
Purrs & Head Bonks,
I thought I’d seen every kitty video out there but I was woefully wrong. Some of these are completely hilarious however I did get a bit hissy when I saw that the Devo video only got honorable mention…really??!!
You know how much I love stories about adventuresome cats ans this compilation is in honor of International Cat Day. I’ve written about a few of these fearless felines and I aspire to be one some day too! For those of you who follow our blog, yes, the training for kayaking is going well. The female human finally found a life vest that fits me.
All I can say is “Meow” it’s about time and two paws up to the folks in Japan! The train car cat cafe will begin in September and will be about a 2 1/2 hour ride in each direction.
A bento boxed lunch is provided for travelers (which include sweets) and a ticket that allows the unlimited travel on the Yoro Railway for that day. The ticket price is 3,000 Yen (about $27.00 U.S.) and a portion of the cost will be used to fund cat rescue operations.
Here’s another wonderful International Cat Day story. There are many houseboats in Amsterdam on the canals and this one is being put to purrrrfect use! If your humans like to travel and find themselves in Amsterdam, make sure they check this place out.
The cat shelter boat is named De Poezenboot and has been in operation since 1968, when a lady inherited an old Dutch sailing barge. Now cat lovers from all over the world come to visit, drawing about 100 visitors a day.
This is a shout out to Bean Town! These enlightened folks recently held their first public Caturday event. What I didn’t know is this event is happening in towns all across the country (I wonder why my town hasn’t held one??)
Boston’s first Caturday celebration was quite a success. What a Caturday event is a a feline friendly meet up. They advertised it on Facebook as “a day to reclaim the glory of the outdoors for our feline friends.” It was such a success that the organizer is planning to hold future Caturdays on the Boston Common on the first Caturday (Saturday for you humans) of each month. Folks showed up with cats on leashes, cats in strollers and cats in their arms. The dog people did a double take but there were no hissy fits.
