Oliver is thankful for the fall leaves that fly by the windows.
Wednesday came fast this week, I guess that Monday off got us all discombobulated. It’s been a busy day. Oliver went to the vet because The Female Human is concerned about his portly proportions. Ollie tried to tell me what a harrowing experience he had but when the video of his visit surfaced, I called “foul” on his description of the visit. You decide for yourself.
The good news is that Ollie’s blood work came back A-OK and The Female Human is relieved but the bad news is that Ollie is now on a diet. This should be interesting. This was his reaction when he was told he would be dieting.
Poor Ollie. At least I hope he enjoys my web wanderings this week.
Oh how I love it when you humans are creative. If there ever was a prize for the BEST “found cat” post, this is it. Big Boy Bubbles even managed to land himself a number! I sure hope his family finds him but if not, he will be put up for adoption at the San Diego Humane Escondido campus.
Santa Cruz coffee shop Cat and Cloud Coffee says it received a cease and desist from Caterpillar Inc. — because they use the word “CAT” in their shop name and merchandise.
The large corporation has trademarked “CAT” and has taken legal action against the small business to stop them from using it. Owners of the small business say they first received the letter in August of 2018.
What hubris this company has…how can you trademark the word “cat”..are you kitten me??? And could someone please explain to me how there is any similarity between this café and Caterpillar??? Caterpillar machines, I hiss in your general direction.
It’s official according to a nationwide survey on cats and dogs as pets that was conducted by the Japan Pet Food Association, cats rock in Japan! The total number of dogs in 2018 was 8,903,000 but the total number of cats was 9,649,000. There are lots of charts and figures for you humans that like that sort of stuff. As for me, all I care about is that cat’s rule in Japan!
The Humane Society of the United States assisted in transporting cats and other animals from shelters in tornado affected Oklahoma areas and placed them with shelters and rescues in Virginia and Maryland.
This allows the shelters in impacted areas to have more room to take in displaced animals. By transporting adoptable animals out of shelters in these communities, the opportunity for them to find a furever home is increased. And, then shelter capacity is increased in order for displaced animals to stay safe until they’re reunited with their families. Two paws up for the Humane Society of the United States and the shelters that are helping.
The yoga with cats craze has hit France. The Female Human never gets to do any yoga without the full attention of The Tribe of Five. Instructors say that having cats around enhances the feeling of wellbeing. If this is true, why is she always yelling at us to move? We felines are natural yoga masters, just watch us stretch. The Female Human needs to chill.
I know, I know, I’m purrticipating in the Friday blog hop on Saturday…so sue me. It’s a long weekend and I’m having a hard time getting in gear. Although, with my girth getting in gear for anything is a struggle. The Female Human is so concerned about me she’s taking me to the vet next week to see why I’m gaining so much weight. Believe it or not, I’m not a snack eater, rarely partake of the wet food and am pretty much a “kibble only” kind of guy so my weight increase is a bit of a mystery. I told The Female Human I just have big bones.
Oh well, enough about me, let’s enjoy this week’s fill ins blog hop brought to you by the good folks at 15andmeowing and Four-Legged Furballs. You’re invited to join the blog hop or, opine about your answers in the comment section.

Hey there Furiends,
We wanted to take a moment to meow about the fact that we received two Certificates of Excellence from the Cat Writer’s Association. I guess all the hard work by our Purrsonal Assistant paid off. I just hope this doesn’t mean she’s going to ask for a raise!
Alberto will be reporting from the CWA conference in May.
