When Mittens the Tuxedo slipped into a covered boat parked near his family’s house, all he wanted was a catnap. Instead, he went on the journey of a lifetime.
Tuxedo cats aren’t a breed but a colour pattern which can happen in almost any type of domestic cat.
Mind you, I have friends among the Tuxedo population although anyone would agree that pure black is a much better shade of fur.
In my youthful days I thrilled to the description of Bagheera.
A black shadow dropped down into the circle. It was Bagheera the black panther, inky black all over, but with the panther markings showing up in certain lights, like the pattern of watered silk
Poor old Chaka has gone to the Rainbow Bridge.
A resident of Melbourne Zoo, he was euthanised at the start of December when no more could be done for his age-related disease of the nervous system, specifically the brain, spinal column, and the major nerves to the rear half of the body.
Do you know what Palm oil is? It’s oil, you say, from palms, well yes, we both know that. But Palm oil is used in everything from snack foods to soaps. It’s found in over half all packaged items on our supermarket shelves. I don’t believe you’ll find palm oil in my cat food but the woman-who-feeds-me reads the ingredients on my packaged dinners and if there were Palm oil in it, I know I’d have a change of diet.
Honey went to the Rainbow Bridge today.
For almost 30 years, Honey lived at the Melbourne Zoo but the last few months she spent most of her time away from visitors, cuddled up in her night den. She was sick, you see. It’s what all of us animals do when we’re sick, we keep to ourselves.
There’s more to photobombing than you think.
Barney, the Cemetery Cat, went to the Bridge at the age of twenty last week. He has now been laid to rest in a small, secluded spot at the place where he spent his entire life brightening up the lives of hundreds during their darkest moments.
Strictly speaking this isn’t a Selfie. I didn’t tap claw to phone. It is, however, the best I can do under the circumstances.
Be a Cool Cat on even the hottest of days
Like all cats, I enjoy warm weather. I’m also pretty good at keeping myself cool but, in a heat wave, I could do with a little extra help from you. While you’re organising chilled treats for yourself and keeping out of the heat, spare a thought for your cat who can’t take a quick shower or get a cold drink from the fridge.
