    Honestly, I am one of the luckiest cats in the world and I dont have to wait for a special day to be grateful. Unlike the majority of cats, I was born into a situation that almost guaranteed that I would have a nice home and good humans to take care of me. I never, ever take that for granted. But since this is my first Thanksgiving, Ill give you my list of things Im especially thankful for:

    The rescues that bring their adoptable cats to the cat shows where I compete and that sometimes enter...
  • Therapy Cat Faux Pas

    I tried being a therapy cat the other day and it did not turn out like I expected. Im kind of embarrassed. Especially since Im very familiar with who I was trying to be therapeutic to.

    It was Binga! She has not been eating well and hasnt been herself for a few days, so my human took her to the vet. She convinced her boyfriend to come too so she could bring me along in my sling. She tries to take advantage of any chance she has to take me somewhere, especially places that are noisy and hospital...

  • Senior Cat Adoption Myths, Debunked!

    November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month, and while giving a home to a senior cat is a very good thing, you need to understand what you are getting into! There are myths being spread around about senior cats, and I thought the best cat to address these untruths is Binga, who is 14. She knows the most about this.

    MYTH: Senior cats are more mature, and less likely to get into trouble than a rambunctious kitten. FALSE!

    TRUTH: Senior cats get into better trouble than kittens because they have more...

    There were so many photos of us kitties enjoying our toys from the Jackson Galaxy Collection by Petmate that we wound up with a bunch of crazy outtakes! Here are a few of them make sure you scroll over the photos for the secret messages.

    This was my look of surprise when I was told that the box was not part of the Collection.

    Confession: at first, I didnt realize that you were supposed to be in the Comfy Cabana, not on it.

    My human almost didnt get the treats all the way into the Go Fish Slow...

  • Sunday Catinee: Techno-Nippy

    Now that I am a grown-up kitty (in the world of cat fancy, at eight months old I get to compete with adult altered cats), I think I am old enough to stay out all night, dancing to loud, electronic music! And apparently, the Meow Mix humans know where all the underground after-hours kitty-cathouses are, because they have an EDM version of their song:

    If you cant see the above video, click here to watch it on YouTube!

    I just hope my human doesnt try to come along wouldnt that be embarrassing?

    Since Thanksgiving is in a few days, I wanted to fill this weeks Caturday Report with stories that will make you feel good!

    Let the thankful begin:

    Heres the heart-warming story of an abandoned Alameda kitty who found a home, help, and lots of young friends, not necessarily in that order. Cat ladies are crazy no more. In fact, theyre cool, according to this Care2.com story. But then, we all knew this already, right? Its a secret that most people know by now: Disneyland in Anaheim, CA is home...

    Here I am in my humans Mini Cooper, in the Urban Pet parking lot to pick up a couple of last minute gifts for my Secret Paws recipient! Since it is not even Thanksgiving yet, you may think Im early but Im not because the kitties I was assigned live outside of the U.S. So I needed to get my shopping done earlier than many other kitty bloggers. My human bought a few things while I was competing at this past weekends cat show, but we had more to do.

    Every year, we cat bloggers do a Secret Paws...

  • Thankful for My Castle Thursday

    Remember last week when I said that I didnt want anything for Christmas? With the prizes I got from Sammy and all those cat toys from the Jackson Galaxy Collection, I dont really need anything, thats for sure! Plus this awesome Kitty Castle. There is a back story to this castle I know you are probably wondering when it showed up.

    The castle has actually been around here longer than I have! My human saw it on Amazon over the summer, and it always seems be selling at some big discount. Well,...
