Well hello friends, furry and otherwise,
I hope you enjoy my selections this week, you’ll meet some interesting felines and learn about a product that will revolutionize the cocktail hour in every home.
And don’t forget, if you have a great story you’d like me to share on my Walk Through the Web Wednesday segments, just give me a meow and leave a comment.
Love Meow – Jack the Store Cat
The owners of a wine store met a feline and thought they would find him a home. The feline, named Jake, had other ideas. He loved the store so much, he’s now the “Meow-an-ager”. Now, before you get on your high horse and decry the fact that this cat has a job, it was his choice and Jake holds court at his store, seeing his admiring public (many bearing gifts) on a daily basis. Two paws up for Jake who landed himself a cushy life.
The Daily Mail – Cat Wine
While I’m on the subject of wine….Jake might recommend these libations to his feline customers. Cats can choose from a nice Pinot-Mewo or a MosCATo from Apollo Peak. If you think this is a joke, you’re partly correct. That’s how the whole idea started but now the wine is sold world-wide. And before you worry that this is not a good idea for felines, the creator of Cat Wine used to work in the pet food industry so he understands the fine feline palate.
Can’t wait for the weekend when the humans and I can share a cocktail.
The Animal Rescue Site – Jingles the Cat Runs a Colorado Town
When you visit the True Value hardware store in Crested Butte, Colorado you may meet Jingles surveying his domain. Technically,. Jingles is a working cat but his job description is much more lofty than “store employee”. His influence in the community is such that his birthday has been declared a holiday. Way to go Jingles!
Traveling Cats – The Cat From Petra (Jordan)
I’ve heard of shop cats, library cats, railroad station cats and even felines with political positions but I’ve never heard of a cat that guards an ancient and important place, until I heard about an orange Tabby who guards the ancient pink city of Petra in Jordan. The folks from Far Away At Home met this fine fellow on a trip there. Take a look at his photo, I think he has sort of a mystical look that’s perfect for guarding ancient relics.
