Can you spot the kitty?
Tuesday, November 8, 2011
It seems like cats are always in such contempt with their lives. Whether it's a plush tabby you see in the window of a house or a skinny tomcat enjoying a sunbath on a warm day. No matter what life throws at 'em, cats are always happy with what they're given.
Sometimes it takes my cat for me to realize that life is great without the extra effort - whether at work, with friends and even family. So instead of staying late at work or crashing yet another party, I would like to just enjoy my sunbath.

There are many ways one can approach the litter box duties. Some leave it filled to the brim with litter and then dig around with a scoop looking for "treasure," others try to teach the feline better manners with toilet bowl training. I admit that each approach has its merits and suit various lifestyles of the humin folk and there are many variables involved. Today I want to share my own approach, which may inspire you to invent your own!

If I had a Cat First Aid kit - which isn't such a bad idea to have! - this book would definitely be the first item I would add.

There's a heated debate going on about dry food and whether pets should or shouldn't be allowed to eat it. While I am a strong supporter or feeding my sunshine wet food, I do feed her dry food as well. I will explain my reasoning in another post but here is my review of the dry food I give my kitties - Royal Canin. Read on and you just might be surprised.

Everybody knows how hard it is to please a cat. Incidentally it is also pretty hard to please a cat lover. Here's an excellent gift idea that is bound to get on the purring side of any feline and their lovers!
Workman Publishing does an excellent job of photographing the cats, finding inspirational quotes, interesting facts and goofy captions, guaranteed to brighten anyone's day. I have been a loyal customer for three years now and every day is just that much better because it starts with flipping over to a new adorable face!
The calendars come in two varieties. One is a simple calendar on a plastic stand with rip-away pages. The second is a premium version, with larger images on a higher quality thick glossy paper with a nice transparent stand to boot. Both would make an excellent gift that keeps on giving all year long!

|A touch of the Black Cat|
Enjoying a hot cup of coffee one might be surprised to find themselves not in a sidewalk cafe of Paris but in the heart of the Old City of Riga, the capital of Latvia. Built over a 100 years ago in the city often lovingly referred to as Little Paris, this art nouveau building has a peculiar story of its own.
In one of the popular versions the owner of the building, a wealthy Latvian merchant, was denied membership at The Great Guild - an exclusive German theatre located across the street from his building. Offended and enraged, the merchant decided to publicly express his dislike by affixing two black cats, bearers of misfortune, on top of his building with their backs arched and puffed tails. Their behinds were turned towards the theatre in a tasteful gesture of insult.

As I have mentioned in my later post, I volunteer at the Liberty Humane Society animal shelter and I sit on their Development and PR committees. The shelter is running a great campaign to upgrade the "habitats" of its residents, raising $500 for cat enclosures and $1,500 for kennels. While individual contributors rarely can afford to donate such a large amount, we can still help!
