Hello Friends Furry, Feathered and Otherwise,
Alberto here (my friends call me Al) and it’s my favorite day of the week where I get to purrrruse the web and share some of my favorite feline things.
Three Chatty Cats’ mission is to promote and support cat rescues and adoptions by highlighting rescue groups, sharing adoption stories, and showcasing individuals who do their part to help cats in need. They remind us that tomorrow., Thursday September 22 is “Remember Me Thursday® which is a global awareness campaign uniting individuals and pet adoption organizations around the world as an unstoppable, integrated voice advocating for orphan pets to live in forever homes, not die waiting for them. You can enter a photo of your shelter pet and win food, toys or pet insurance for your local shelter! Our human sent photos in for #TheTribeOfFive. You have until September 30th so start posting!
The Daily Mail- From Viking cats to felines of the ancient mariner: DNA analysis from 30 archaeological sites reveals how cats spread around the world
This one is for the more intellectual felines in my readership. The article states that “The history of cat domestication still remains understudied, especially compared to that of dogs.” and I couldn’t agree more. We felines have been earning our keep for centuries, the article says that cats may have lived among ancient farmers, mariners, and even Vikings. I should disclose however, that #TheTribeOfFive are not great mousers and our humans had to call someone to take care of their mouse problem in their old house.
Here’s another one for my readers with inquiring minds. Now I get the connection with house felines and cheetahs, but zebras too? Veeeeerrryyy interesting, yep, it’s all in the genes.
The photo to the left is my feline cuz Jake, who is helping himself to the catnip crop.
Cosplay for cats? Well, why not? Valiant Comics’ just announced their latest series of cat cosplay variant covers. Variant covers, in the comic book world, are when a comic company ships multiple covers for their first printing and more often than not, the covers only make sense if you link the various covers together. (Who knew a feline had such comic book knowledge?). I purrrrrused the covers and had a hard time selecting my favorite but I think it has to be Harbinger Renegades (shown at left).
You must check this out for yourself, they are purrrrfectly wonderful!
