It’s been snowing, and snowing and snowing at our house. The Tribe and I are spending quality time in front of the fireplace this week. The only place this feline is walkin’ is through the web!
I hope wherever you are, you are warm and cozy.
Purrs & Head Bonks,
Now I have been known to make friends with the woodland creatures around our house so this news piece wasn’t shocking to me. But we live in the good old US of A and there are none of these “koalas” around.
Evidently this Australian feline named Richo had his own woodland visitor. The cat’s human heard a “tap,tap” on the window and saw the two looking at each other. The koala kept going away and then coming back for another look. I bet he was thinking, “What sort of koala is this?!”
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, our furiends across the pond sure know how to treat felines! This family owned hotel in England has 18 rooms which include double rooms (for two cats) and family rooms (for up to fourcats-I guess one of the Tribe would have to stay alone if we were in Cornwall). Felines in Cornwall have it made!
This story falls under the category “humans behaving badly”. Evidently two brothers from Lincoln, Nebraska got into a fight about cat ownership that ended up in second-degree assault and resisting arrest for one brother. When the fight deteriorated into destruction of items in the apartment, the police were called. Now really humans, we felines apurreciate your love and devotion to us but please, don’t harm anyone or get yourself arrested to prove it!
You know how I love stories about working cats and this one is a doozy. Evidently Willow (Will to his furiends) who works at Monument City Brewing Company in Baltimore was cat-napped by three misguided do-gooders.
Brewery staffers took to social media immediately after realizing that their feline employee was missing. They were nice about it, posting on Facebook, “We’re sure this was done with the best intentions, however, we’re pretty attached to Will and hope that you bring him back to his home.” The post was shared more than 3,200 times on Facebook. And lo and behold, Will was returned and the staffers posted, “Will is excited to get back to work.”
The Brewery is taking Will post-haste to the Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter to be microchipped. and threw a party to celebrate Will’s homecoming.
People, when it comes to felines think LOST not STRAY!
And here’s another heart-warming working cat story. A stray kitten named Rosie is now working at the Gutekunst Public Library. She appeared on the library doorstep in December and the Library Director says, “We didn’t find her. I think she found us,” The librarian says she went to lunch and they didn’t have a cat and when she returned from lunch, they did. The librarian did the right thing, searching for the kitten’s humans, making phone calls and posting on social media but no one responded.
When library guests began to ask if the kitten could stay at the library the question was posed to the Board of Directors who agreed to give Rosie’s employment a try. A contest was held to find a name for the kitten and Rosie was chosen (her full name is Rosie Agatha Christie Finch).
Today Rosie can be found darting from one room to another or in a window sill enjoying sunshine. She is loved by all the librarians and library patrons and she loves to greet everyone when they arrive. I think every library should have it’s own feline!
