Alberto here bringing you my favorite feline finds on the web this week.
Feline Legal Purrdiciment – The Best Cat Page
If you are a less than faithful feline, you may find that you land your humans in a bit of a legal pickle. This cat in Italy had just such an experience and now the humans are prepared to duke it out in court. So you fickle felines, decide who your humans are and stay there!
Quantify Your Cat’s Coming’s and Goings – Techcrunch
If you are a feline that is a bit of a wanderer, this might just be the product your humans are looking for It’s a pet door that will report on feline comings and goings. The app sends the humans push notifications whenever their furry feline friend enters and leaves the house.
There are other features as well but you may not want the humans to know about all of them. There is the ability to remotely lock or unlock the pet door, set curfews and track our habits and nocturnal routines (I mean a cat’s gotta’ have a little privacy). I’ll let you decide how much you want to tell your humans.
Stray Kitten Wanders Onto TV Set and Introduces Herself – Little Things
I am an admirer of felines who seize an opportunity when it presents itself. Now if the humans are not so fast on the draw as far as finding furrever homes for homeless felines, I think this kitten has a brilliant idea. Just march your cute self into the studio in the middle of the broadcast. I hope the newscaster gave the kitten a furever home!
Special Pouches Help Feral Kittens Get Used To Humans – The Dodo
Being a rescue cat myself (as are all the Tribe of Five), I’m all for anything that helps cats become socialized in shelters because that helps them find furever homes. This pouch is a pretty nifty idea. I know my brother Oliver and I who had to be bottle-fed when our mom was killed right after we were born, would have loved to snuggle in this pouch against a human. The humans have something for their little humans called a Babybjorn. Well this is the kitten version and it works the same way. Some humans are pretty smart!
Soggy Moggy Tests New Hydrotherapy Treatments – Barcroft Media
I must explain for my feline friends that “moggy” is a term for cats that they use across the pond. Hydrotherapy has, until now, only been available for dogs and what it does is help muscles to exercise while nerve regeneration is taking place from injuries. It’s also a great fitness routine. And I say, why should the dogs have all the good stuff and evidently so does this human who is looking to help cats have hydrotherapy as well. It’s not true that all cats hate water. There are lots of cats who like to be in water or around water. just sashay on over to Adventure Cats and see the cats there that like to swim or boat.
And, while we’re on the subject of cats and water, I must tell you about my summer project. The female human is working with me so that I can be her kayaking buddy. It’s going slowly but well. I’ll keep you posted.
That’s it for this Wednesday, your pal Al,
