Thank you for your patience as we post our news segment a day late! I hope you’re feeling springy in your neck of the woods. The Human is insistent that she can smell spring in the air. We think she’s nuts.
This is from Weather Kitty today. Note the temperature and the feline at the airport dressed to leave this chilly place and head to a warmer climate. I think this is all I need to refute The Human’s “spring” argument.
And while we hang out at home, waiting for warmer weather, I found an absolutely magical piece of brown wrapping paper and have been racing around the closet, bathroom and bedroom with it. Neither Lily nor Oliver have embraced the joy of the brown paper like I have.
Sigh, some cats just don’t understand the joy of paper!

Man sells couch with his cat inside
I reported on a sofa sale with a cat inside quite a while ago. I thought this was a rare occurrence. I was wrong. It happened in Vancouver, B.C.
Matt Lumabi was moving into a new place and in the process, noticed his cat was missing. His cat, Marley had somehow gotten into a sofa that he’d sold and had quite an adventure.
The buyers took the sofa, blissfully unaware that they’d received a bonus with their purchase. The couch was then quickly resold, and Marley never made an appearance.
The second buyer did find Marley after three days.
While Marley was moving to new places in the sofa, Matt tore his new place apart looking for, searched the neighborhood, posted on social media and put up “missing cat” posters all over his neighborhood.
The first couch purchaser was notified that there was a cat in the couch and they called Matt. Matt and Marley were reunited after three days, she was checked out and had suffered no physical problems from her adventure. She is happy to be home and Matt says, she’s been more cuddly than ever.

Cat purrserveres and gets herself adopted
Avery Rogers was working at her family’s North Carolina food truck when she encountered an unusual hungry customer. Rogers told The Dodo that the cat kept coming closer and got close enough to accept a treat that was offered to her.
When her shift was over, Rogers went to where the cat was sitting and the cat marched toward her, making it clear she wanted a home and some love.
You can watch the cat walk up to Rogers and ask to be loved here.
That cat convinced Rogers that she should have a home. After a health check and a check for a microchip at the vets the deal was sealed. Rogers named the cat Blue, after the family food truck’s most popular hot dog, the Bluetick Hound.
Blue was estimated to be about a year old and she had no trouble fitting in with the cats already in the house. People have said that Rogers found Blue at the perfect time but Rogers says it was the other way around. Blue’s insistence to be adopted was days before one of Roger’s childhoodcats passed away within days of Blue’s arrival. Rogers said that Blue was a much needed source of comfort and that Blue showed up right when she was needed.
To keep up with Blue, follow Rogers on TikTok.
