    The news items I found this week all seem to involve humans doing something, well, human-like with cats! Some were fun, some were very serious.

    You will see what I mean when you read what I have for you:

    In a stunning display of ignorance, a doctor told his pregnant patient to stop feeding a feral colony and get rid of some of her six cats. Dont worry, pet expert and advocate Steve Dale tells the mom-to-be it is perfectly okay to be pregnant, with cats. As you know, cats and books go together...

    You are probably wondering why I am wearing this dress! Well, my human thought I should be fashionable for my latest book review!

    Its The Adventures of Coco Le Chat: The Worlds Most Fashionable Feline. And it stars my blogging pal Coco the Couture Cat! I have to be honest, though, I am kind of embarrassed about reviewing this cute, stylish book while wearing an off-the-rack dress! Not only that, it is a hand-me-down from several seasons ago that Sparkle never wore. Coco wouldnt be caught dead...

    As you know, I am training to be a therapy cat. A lot of humans seem to think this is a big deal, as if it is a very hard thing to do. But I want you to know they are wrong. It is true that going into strange buildings and befriending people you dont know is something not all cats can do. But the therapy part thats easy. All cats are therapy cats. Yes, even feral cats. Let me tell you why.

    We cats make humans feel better by our very presence. Scientific studies have proven the human health...

    I gather this Ess has been here for years, and no kitty wanted it. Well, guess what? I decided it belongs to me! Maybe it was just waiting for my arrival.

    I think I look really dramatic on it!

    Plus its really fun to play on!

    Of course, now that Ive claimed it, everybody wants a piece of it.

    I confess I was a little scared of the Twinkle Chute tunnel at first. I know Sparkle liked it, but I had my doubts.

    I wondered if there was something dangerous hiding inside it.

    I had to examine it thoroughly to make sure it was safe!

    Finally, I took a chance and dove right in!

    It turned out to be a really fun toy.

    There was nothing to be afraid of after all!

    I had a very busy weekend! I competed in a cat show again except this time my human just dropped me off there! She had some sort of digital publishing conference to attend, so my breeder (who was also showing her Aby kitten, CG) prepped me and took me to the rings.

    Actually I did not mind in fact, I thought it was fun! My breeder tried a few different things with me for fun, playing and stuff, and it made my behavior for the judges fresher and more energetic! Do not tell my human, but I didnt...

  • Sunday Catinee: Ping-Pong, Kitty Style

    In ping pong, there are human rules and as this stripey orange guy shows here there are kitty rules. If you want to play kitty ping pong, here is what you need to know:

    Kitties may play both sides of the court. As long as you can whap it, its a score! Bunny kicking of the net is not only allowed, it is welcomed. In a match between cats and humans, the cat automatically gets the win.

    Now watch the video!

    After my last couple of serious posts regarding feral cats in Los Angeles, lets kick back and check out some more lighthearted news stories this week!

    Once again, the bloggers have the meat and the other websites have the fluff:

    This video of Taylor Swift and John Cleese discussing their cats on a talk show has been making the rounds, but if you havent seen it yet, check it out! These two are both pretty funny. When this Japanese man retired, he decided to spend his time carting his nine cats...
