Tomorrow is International Cat Rescue Day. If you’ve been thinking about adding to your feline family, this is a good day to do it. I’m still working to save the little orange tabby that’s roaming free in my neighborhood. That would be an important rescue. If each of us focused on just one abandoned or free-roaming or shelter cat today, just imagine how much of a difference we could make for cats. Rescue, adopt, and spoil that cat like crazy.     ..read more

Paws Up for Wednesday – World Spay Day

I cannot understand why in this day and age, with so many cats being abandoned and left to fend for themselves and so many being euthanized every year, why cat owners do not have their cats neutered/spayed. But the evidence (of so many feral and sheltered cats and euthanized cats) shows that still way too many people are not getting it!!! They don’t understand that we have created a crisis situation among cats worldwide. There are not enough people to care for the number of cats that need care. The simple answer is to spay and neuter your cats. I was shocked to see that the sweet orange tabby ..read more

Meowy Monday – Keep Your Cats Close

I’m interested in some of the judge shows on TV—well, an author needs a break from writing and the curiosities that come up in some of the cases keep the brain active. Sometimes you see cases to determine custody of dogs and even cats. A typical cat case is when someone leaves their cat(s) with a roommate or a friend for a couple of weeks and they don’t return to get them until many months later. Who should be given custody of the cats—the person who owned them, but abandoned them or the person who cared for them and has become attached to them? In most cases the one who is now in custody of t ..read more

Feline Fun Friday – Are Cats Really Aloof?

It used to be that the cat’s nature, when compared to that of a dog, was described as aloof (distant, detached, unfriendly, remote, unapproachable, snooty). Does this describe your cat(s)? I didn’t think so. There’s new evidence and beliefs about cats that discount this premise. I don’t know about you, but I’m awfully glad to see this. Sure, we’ve all known cats that seem more discerning than others. They’ll take their time to make friends and maybe they won’t greet you each time you come home from work or play. But what about those many times your cat curls up next to you or in your lap and g ..read more

Monday we discussed what you can do to protect the feral cats and homeless neighborhood cats. If you aren’t aware of needy cats in your area, and you’d like to help cats, consider reaching out to one or more local cat shelters. These shelters are not typically run by someone with unlimited funds, and the expenses for running a shelter can be higher than you might think. Here’s a site that explains how much it can cost to start an animal shelter. https://www.zippia.com/answers/how-much-does-it-cost-to-start-an-animal-shelter/ Then there’s the ongoing costs for housing, supplies, food, and let’s ..read more

Winter’s not over yet and there are still cats living out of doors without shelter. You may be aware of some in your neighborhood, and you want to help, but how? Build or buy a cat shelter. You can purchase one for anywhere from $20 to $140. Some of them come with a heating element. Or you can add straw to help keep the cat warm. In case you know of a cat in your neighborhood that needs shelter, I’ve provided a link to cat shelters rated best of the best for outdoor cats. Check them out. If you know a cat that needs one and you can’t afford it, pass the hat. Surely there are others who care ab ..read more

Do you enjoy having neighborhood cats visit your yard? Do you greet random cats you meet while out walking or visiting in your neighborhood? Are there cats you particularly like to watch outside your windows? And what about those cats that sort of hang around while you garden or putter in your yard? Not only do I enjoy sharing my yard with cats, I’ll stop at a window and watch them roll around on the warm pavement on a sunny day, I talk to cats I meet while out walking, and I photograph them, if they’ll let me. Here are a few I’ve photographed lately ..read more
