MY RECENT POSTS

When Google says something, people listen.  And the latest message coming from Google about guest blogging caused a lot of people to panic.  Here’s the quote from Matt Cutts:

“In general I wouldn’t recommend accepting a guest blog post unless you are willing to vouch for someone personally orRead full post »

Furiends, you remember how I shared the story of Kitty, who was looking for her furever home, with you?  This sweet 16 year old calico is a diabetic cat like me, and she had been waiting for a kind human to see past her age and diabetes to adopt her.  Well,… Read full post »

Those of you who visit my Facebook page know that I have been asking you to for votes in the Modern Cat Star Cat Contest.  I was very pleased that all of the felines on the first page of the contest were special needs cats.  And while I wish I could… Read full post »

In any cat adoption facility, there are some felines who are labeled difficult, and some that are labeled easy to adopt.  Sometimes, the felines are considered difficult to adopt because of injuries, medical conditions, their age, or the color of their fur.  An injured older black cat with diabetes… Read full post »

One of the reasons why my human keeps me as an indoor only cat is because he does not want me running around on the road.  While feline reflexes are very quick, human ones are slower.  And when you humans get in those metal boxes on wheels, you can often go… Read full post »

A drainage pipe is no place for a feline like me to be trapped.  It is especially bad if that pipe is wet and the temperature outside is cold!  But Piper is the subject of a very happy cat rescue story after enduring being trapped in this situation for three days!… Read full post »

You remember how I told you the story of how the Mid Hudson Animal Aid facility burned down?  The facility was completely destroyed.  All the humans at the animal rescue facility were okay, and amazingly, 152 of the 160 felines there were saved, too.

For a small animal rescue operating on… Read full post »

The human was buying food yesterday, and he ran into someone who was helping to sell the litter that he uses for us.  He told the other human that he likes it, because it clumps and is can be flushed down the toilet.  He likes it because it makes taking care… Read full post »

I saw a picture of a feline with a part of his ear missing.  I wondered why this happened, and the human had to explain it to me.  It was an interesting story that I wanted to pass along to you.

This Feral Cat has Been Treated and has a Tipped EarThis feline has what is called a tipped ear.  You… Read full post »

It is always sad for me when I have to share a story of horrible animal abuse.  Even when the felines in question turn out to be okay, like my good buddies Lucky, Justin, Bindy and Treasure, it makes me very sad.  I do not understand why evil humans enjoy torturing… Read full post »

“Human!  You are home.”

“Yes, Bagheera.  I am.  Did you miss me?”

“Of course I did.  Well, kind of.  You know I do not like the place where the humans in white coats are, but the human who came here to take care of me is very nice.  And you know… Read full post »

Help Animal Rescue Groups Get Free Food

One of the biggest challenges that animal rescue groups have is finding enough noms to feed their felines like me and the other animals that they rescue.  You know that Lucky and I are in a contest to see who gets more votes in the Modern Cat Star Cat contest, and… Read full post »

Frosty the Frozen Kitten Is Improving

Hello, good furiends.  You will remember that I shared a story with you about Frosty the Frozen Kitten.  Since it is winter, many of you humans are dealing with very cold temperatures.  My human says we do not have to deal with this, but most humans do.

Frosty showed how dangerousRead full post »

“Human!  Human!  Come here, quickly.”

“What is it, Jacey?”

“You have to see what Bagheera and Marley are doing.”

“Oh no, are they fighting?  What did you do, Jacey?”

“I didn’t do anything, human.  And they are not fighting.”… Read full post »

How Can Felines Become Therapy Cats?

I have shared many stories of humans helping felines, and some of felines helping humans.  I know that Jacey, Marley, and I definitely help keep our human on his toes.  Sometimes we exasperate him, but that is all in good fun.  We love to annoy him until he tells us to… Read full post »

A cease and desist order is something that anyone running a small business dreads.  It’s especially nerve racking when it comes from a huge company.  These are large companies with the financial resources to ruin a small business owner’s day.  The legal fees to fight even a cease and desist or… Read full post »

The human told me that in the fall of 2012, a very dangerous storm caused a lot of damage near where we used to live.  This storm, which was called Hurricane Sandy, destroyed a lot of homes.  That meant that many humans and many felines were displaced.  Around 200,000 humans were… Read full post »

I want to thank all of you kind humans for being so understanding about me unwittingly passing along information about a cat that was allegedly in need which was put together by a scam artist.  Know that I would never knowingly pass such information along, but always remember that you humans… Read full post »

Drooling is an Interesting Cat Behavior

Many of your humans have seen this.  A feline is happy and content, maybe sitting on your lap while you pet it.  And then, all of the sudden, it is like a water faucet has been turned on, and the feline starts to drool.  This cat behavior can be surprising for… Read full post »

The human has told me that many parts of the country are very cold.  We are very fortunate to live where we do, where Jacey and I can take little strolls out on the balcony year round without getting cold.  Here, feral cat who do not have homes have to deal… Read full post »

Do you remember how I shared the story of my fellow special needs cat Saltwater Taffy?  She has a condition known as radial agenesis.  In this condition, instead of forming normally like my legs did, her legs are shaped in the form of an L.

Happy Cat Rescue News to Share

I always like sharing happy news with you kind humans.  And nothing makes me happier than knowing that a feline who needed a furever home has found one.

You will remember that I told you the story a few days ago of Penguin.  This sweet boy was the last of the… Read full post »

Say Hello To Special Needs Cat Chloe

One of the things I am most proud about is that I share stories not just about diabetic cats like me, but other special needs cats as well.  I like to do this so that humans like you can learn that while we special needs cats require more attention, we are… Read full post »

How Felines Show Affection to Humans

Recently, there was a story about how felines really do not like their humans.  I disagree with this, as I show affection to my human all the time by hopping on him and purring.  And my human would argue that the study is flawed because it’s set up in a stupid… Read full post »

There is a happy cat rescue story coming out of Iroquois County, Illinois.  It’s being written by the Iroquois County Animal Rescue, and it features a number of kittens being adopted.  But there is one last part of the story to write, and I hope that you will help them write… Read full post »
