    I have lots of interesting things to report this week, from funny to frustrating to informative!

    Lets get right to it:

    Mashable reports about an inventor who has created a smart cat feeder that has facial recognition, a video feed and lots more! There is a movement right now in my own state of California to outlaw hybrid cat breeds such as Savannahs, Chausies and Bengals! Cat Behaviorist Marilyn Krieger explains why this is wrong. I would like to add that Bengals especially are hugely popular...

    Its time to show off the lesser photos my human took of us cats! I hope you enjoy looking at them more than we enjoyed (or didnt) posing for them!

    My human wanted Binga to pose for a funny photo illustrating the aftermath of Cat World Domination Day. Binga was not amused by this particular umbrella placement.

    Here I am, posing with some toys and treats I was not allowed to play with or eat. If you look closely, you can see exactly what I thought of that.

    I have no idea what inspired my human to...

  • Human Litter Box Training, Step One

    from Sparkle the Designer Cat

    My human was reading a magazine article recently on litter box issues, and how it is one of the main reasons cats get turned into shelters. It is also one of the main reasons cats get euthanized, because who wants to adopt a cat that doesnt use the litter box? But behind these plain facts is something more complex and utterly tragic: many (maybe most of) these cats are being killed for something that is not their fault at all, but their humans. Litter box avoidance is usually a human issue,...

    Leo July 23 August 22

    If you are a kitty who lives with a Leo human, congratulations! It means you are the Best Cat in the Whole World. How do I know this? Because a Leo human only has the best in her (or his) home, no matter how palatial or humble that home is. If the Leo is wealthy, youll find her home filled with classy, stylish decor and the top designer names. If the Leo isnt quite as flush, you still might find some of those beautiful furnishings and designer names anyway, carefully...

  • A Lovely Gift Package

    This is so belated, it is embarrassing! Back in early June, Red and Magics human had a giveaway on their blog to celebrate 200 posts, and I was one of the winners. I received the package on my birthday (aka Cat World Domination Day). You can see what a sweet gift package it was. Originally it was just the bracelet and the Yankee Candle Tart, but as you can see, she included a fun mousie and some treats! I feel really bad that it took me a month to post about them because this was such a nice...

    No, she did not get me a new little friend! But she did get it at a cat show she went to over the weekend. She was visiting with my breeder and checking out her new kittens. This was one of them.

    She also saw some pretty awesome Aby kittens.

    These two came all the way from Russia and they are amazing kittens! My breeder will be adding the girl to her program. She thinks outcrossing the Somali breed is important, to keep us healthy and hardy! Although my human loves rescue kitties most of the...

    Here I am, reporting from a box that has not been unpacked since the unfortunate ant extermination incident. And it wont be unpacked today, I can guarantee you that, because it is my humans birthday! And she has a birthday tradition that has gone on for many years: she only does what she wants on her birthday. And she does not want to spend time unpacking boxes!

    But there is one thing she for sure wants to do, and that is donate money to a cat rescue! Binga has already raided her bank...

    Ive featured kitties shredding toilet paper before (including the cat who even rolled it back), but what about big cats? What would they do with toilet paper, if given the chance? The humans at Big Cat Rescue just had to find out! Here are the results:
