And Now For Something Different

Hi Folks,
Our friends at 15andmeowing and McGuffy’s Reader are taking a “paws” from fill-ins this week so we’re joining Feline Friday hosted by Comedy Plus, Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and XMAS Dolly’s Show Off Tuesday. The Female Human and I had a little play time yesterday.

#AtoZChallenge O

Hi There,
Oliver here. Today I’m blogging the letter “O” which stands for “Opine”. The name of our blog is “Feline Opines” and some folks have asked us what “opine” means. The official definition is to “hold and state, as one’s opinions”. Opining is more than speaking, opining is The Tribe of Five letting you know exactly how we see the word and what we think of what we see.

Oh good grief, ,can you believe the Humans said that?!

So, I hope that has cleared up a few questions.

Oliver Opines on Inspurration -Blogging from A to Z..”A”

Hello Folks

This is our first time purrticipating in this challenge and we’re a bit apprehensive about coming up with a post inspired a letter every day but The Tribe of Five has resolved to do it.

Today’s letter is “A”, so I’m blogging about All of The Tribe.  I figure many of you will be new to our blog so I thought an introduction would be a good idea. We are five rescue felines who live in the Northwest with our two humans.

My brother Alberto and I are the youngest, (2 years)  fostered and then adopted by our Humans. Lily is four years old, she was adopted from our local shelter and Tucker (the Alpha) and his sister Jasmine are 14 years old and moved with the humans to this home.

We will be taking turns opining on things that strike our fancy (in alphabetical order, of course). We hope you enjoy our feline view of the world and we look forward to having our purrsonal secretary read the posts of the other purrticipants to us.

Operation Git-Meow Hopes to Help Guantanamo’s Feral Cat Problem -Miami Herald

soldier holding kittens operation git mrowThe female human tells me that the Guantanamo Navy Base in Cuba is very controversial but this is one thing happening there that everyone can agree on.  The base, best known as a wartime prison, has lots and lots and lots of felines. It is estimated that there about 500 feral kitties there. Troops, civilians and visitors are now working together with the SPCA International and, with the Navy’s permission are spaying and neutering the cats there and working to find forever homes for them. It’s called Operation Git-Meow and in this feline’s humble estimation, a very worthy cause!

Building Tiny Houses in Riga, Latvia for Feral Cats – Boredpanda.com

I2 cats in feral tiny house in Riga, Latvia reported about the fantastic feral feline film done in Riga and now I’m happy to report that this city is looking out for their feral film stars in an ingenious way. Weather gets cold in that part of the world and the good people of Riga went to work to help their kitties keep warm in the cold. The female human watches some TV program that talks about tiny houses for humans and this is the same thing, feline style. All houses are built by local carpenters from donations made via the local non-profit Cat Care Community. What a wonderful idea and what wonderful humans for doing this. I think these digs look pretty snazzy, don’t you?

Reformed Criminal Cat Now Has A Great Career – CatTime.com

cat sneaks into store and eats 1000.00 worth of seafoodA Russian store employee captured the criminal behavior of this cat when she broke into Russia’s Vladivostok International Airport after hours and made a beeline for a  popular seafood store, gobbling up $1000.00 worth of seafood. The video went viral and concerned cat folks from around the world responded, wanting to pay for her thievery, for a vet check up (after eating all that salty seafood) and there were offers of adoption as well. Even one of Russia’s most famous cat trainers offered to adopt her and make her a star in his show. After purrrusing her options, the feline decided to join the The Admirals, the professional Ice Hockey team in Vladivostok as their mascot.

Cat Travels on German Subway – LoveMeow.com

No one knew where he came from and they politely allowed him to sleep all the way to the subway’s destination in Kirchheim.  The passenger took a photo of the sleeping commuter and posted on social media noting that this little guy’s owners might be looking for him. The cat was taken to an animal shelter and was reunited with his humans there. The new version of the feline hobo!

This couple invited two cute little tuxedo kittens to the wedding and the reception and as you can see on the website, included them in all the important wedding photos. They even included a number of feline touches in the wedding decor. The couple both volunteer at their local shelter, The Divine Feline and brought the little kittens to the wedding to promote awareness for shelter adoptions. Oh, and before you get your whiskers in a twist, the bride is wearing faux fur!
