Police Build House For Cat


Swat Cat outside her new house.

Police in Boston, USA,  have been showing their softer side.

They had been feeding and caring for a stray cat they called Swat Cat for three years. But then Swat Cat went missing. They were relieved when three months she turned up again.

In order to give Swat Cat a place to relax when she visited the police department, they decided to build a little house for her.

Boston Police get the condo in place.

"Officer Jamie Pietroski, a 15-year veteran of the Boston Police Department, stayed late after work for several nights painstakingly preparing SWAT Cat's new home," the department’s website read.

The condo features a spacious studio interior layout, a large deck for outdoor dining and glass sliding doors offering panoramic city views.

Keeping Up With The Kattarshians


You've heard of Keeping Up With The Kardashians - but if the antics of one of America's best-known families doesn't appeal to you, try Keeping Up With the Kattarshians!

The reality show, which is live-streamed 24 hours a day, features four nine-week-old kittens.

It was all the idea of the celandic Cat Protection Society. The kittens and their mother were found on an industrial estate in Reykjavik.

They live in a small house in Iceland with beds, toys, scratching posts and pictures on the wall.


So let's meet the kittens!

Guðni

Guðni is the black and white kitten, very sociable and loves to run and tumble. He loves to tease the other kittens and always wins the fights – being the biggest and heaviest of them all.

Stub
Then there is Stub who is determined and brave. Despite being born the runt of the litter, he is now the leader of the group. He's a very happy cat.




Briet
Little girl Briet is reserved, determined and very calm.


Ronja
Another little girl is Ronja, the sweetest of the four. A disadvantaged kitten to begin with, Ronja struggled to gain weight, and one day became very weak. She was rushed to an animal hospital – but was able to come home the following weekend, having been given lots of medication and high calorie foods. She now eats the most out of all of her siblings!

Watch them whenever you like by logging on at http://nutiminn.is/kattarshians/

Carlton Has An Argument With A Laundry Basket


It's Friday- the day Carlton takes over my blog. Views are his own and not necessarily, in fact, rarely, shared by the blog owner.

 
Carlton Has An Argument With A Laundry Basket

by Carlton Cat
I HAD a slight argument with a laundry basket today. There it was full of clean soft clothes so, naturally, I had to lie on them. 

I pushed my paw through the slat in the side…and couldn’t get it back again. I tugged and wriggled. The basket fell over on its side. I scrabbled in the clothes and tugged some more. 

The laundry basket ended up on the other side of the room, leaving a trail of clothes, before I finally extricated my paw. I retired to the bedroom to lick my wounds.


When the Mrs came home I heard an angry shout, ‘Carlton! What have you done to the laundry?’

That’s right, worry about the clothes, why don’t you. Don’t worry about me with my poorly paw. I could have been seriously injured.

SERIOUSLY INJURED.

Carlton Muses On 'The Snip'

It's Friday- the day Carlton takes over my blog. Views are his own and not necessarily, in fact, rarely, shared by the blog owner.

 
Carlton Muses On 'The Snip'

by Carlton Cat



THE Mr and Mrs watched a TV programme about animal instincts last night. The programme mentioned the – ahem – instinct to reproduce. Left to our own devices we cats spray to mark our territory, we fight, we roam for miles and we love a bit of howling, the louder the better.

Why does this pain me? BECAUSE I HAVE HAD THE SNIP.

Snip sounds such an innocuous word but humans firmly believe it is necessary for their male feline companions in order to stop all of the above.

I can't be bothered with all this lovey-dovey stuff.
 I can see their point, I suppose. On the face of it lots more little Carltons with their inevitable devastating charm and good looks sounds appealing but too many cats can lead to serious problems.

Also, I don't think I can stand the competition.

In any case, all that roaming, howling and spraying business sounds too exhausting. I'd much rather be indulging my instincts to sleep, eat and hunt.

Five Personality Types Of Cats

RESEARCH has shown that there are basically five types of cat personalities. 

Dr Lauren Finka, a research fellow at the University of Lincoln in the UK, came to the conclusion after "interviewing" more than 200 cats and their owners.

So here they are: 

The Human Cat loves cuddles.
 The Human Cat is generally happy to share your home, your life and often your personal space. It can be identified by its willingness to gently head-butt you.It likes to make your lap their "spot" and will likely knead you with its paws on a regular basis. The ideal home for the Human Cat is a vibrant family home with plenty of faces to nuzzle and laps to nap on; after all, if they fit they'll sit. The more human attention and chin scratches the better for this friendly. The Human Cat tends to knead you with its paws and gently nuzzle its head into you in a sign of affection. 

Ah, dinner! The Hunter Cat.
 While most cats are born with hunting instincts, the Hunter Cat excels at stalking and capturing its prey. The Hunter Cat can be identified through its interactions with realistic cat toys. It will often clasp toys in its teeth while it frantically kicks. The best environment for this adventurer is a home with plenty of rural outdoor space. This will allow it to explore, chase and pounce to its heart's content, without the worry of urban dangers like busy roads. The Hunter Cat is the most feral of the personalities, regularly interacting with realistic cat toys and showing signs of an expert hunter.


The Cat's Cat loves other cats.

 The Cat's Cat forms positive relationships with other felines, even though it can often go against their nature which sees other cats as a threat to resources. The trick is, as with humans, to socialise them when they're young, exposing them to other cats and kittens. You can identify a Cat's Cat through its willingness to play with and groom its furry siblings, touching noses and rubbing up against each other. Cat's Cat may cope better living with other felines, but even well socialised cats can be choosy about who they share their bed with. This cat may be perfect for young working couples who can leave their partners in crime to run riot throughout the day.

Some cats are just plain cantankerous!

The Cantankerous Cat is more easily frustrated than his four counterparts and can be less tolerant to being handled, due to being quite sensitive to touch, their environment and being on high alert. These felines require more time and effort to make sure they're comfortable when interacting with humans. The Cantankerous Cat can be identified by its need for its own space to play, explore independently and preference for regular but less '-on interactions with humans. It needs to make the first move when it comes to being handled. The Cantankerous Cat enjoys time on its own, and will explore independently without any human input.

Wotcha doin'?
The Inquisitive Cat can be a keen investigator, sniffing around anything and anyone unfamiliar. But this inquisitiveness is a combination of DNA and exposure to new sights, smells and sounds from a young age. The Inquisitive Cat can be identified by its eagerness to explore and investigate anything new in its environment. It could cope well in a home that sees new people coming and going, or even as an office cat. But be warned, it'll get into every box, bag, handbag and lap that enters its domain. Living up to its name, the Inquisitive Cat likes to explore its surroundings and will approach people it doesn't know with caution

Carlton Gets His Nails Clipped - Almost


It's Friday- the day Carlton takes over my blog. Views are his own and not necessarily, in fact, rarely, shared by the blog owner.

 
Carlton Gets His Nails Clipped - Almost

by Carlton Cat



THERE I was lying on the sofa, minding my own business, when I spotted the Mr and Mrs advancing towards me, he carrying a towel and she with her hands behind her back.

Suddenly they were upon me, the Mr wrapped me in the towel and the Mrs produced…oh no, NAIL CLIPPERS! The Mr grasped my paw and held it out to the Mrs. She pounced and - clip! - one nail gone. I was so shocked I did nothing. I just lay in the Mr’s arms and let the Mrs clip my nails one by one. They finished one paw.

“Carlton’s being very good,” said the Mr.

This comment brought me to my senses. Carlton/Good - these two words do NOT go together. My acquiescence must have lulled them into a false sense of security so I suddenly yowled, wriggled free of the towel and scrabbled out of the Mr’s arms, catching him and the Mrs with what remained of my claws.

My one good paw.

I am now back on the sofa with 9 of my 18 claws vandalised beyond all recognition. I yawned and used one of my untouched claws to scratch behind my ears. I gave a secret smile as I looked at the Mr and Mrs sitting stony-faced on either end of the sofa with plasters on their hands.

Serves them right.

Cats As Smart As Dogs




TELL us something we didn't know! Cats may be just as smart as dogs (and humans), a new study suggests.

Japanese scientists tested to see if 49 domestic cats could remember which containers they ate food out of following a 15-minute delay, and said container was emptied, according to the study's abstract. Having an episodic memory is often associated with having a degree of self-awareness, and separate researchers had already determined that dogs displayed use of an episodic memory.

The results revealed that cats could "retrieve and utilize [the] 'what' and 'where' information" they encoded from a single past event; in this case, the container they ate from. The researchers also said cats performed comparably to dogs in tests about understanding human gestures and facial expressions, the BBC reports.

"Understanding cats more deeply helps to establish better cat-human relationships," study author Saho Takagi, a psychologist at Kyoto University, told BBC. “…Cats may be as intelligent as dogs, as opposed to the common view of people that dogs are much smarter."

And if you need any more proof, take a look at this. If Jay Leno says it's true, then it's true!

Carlton Adds To His Computer Knowledge



It's Friday- the day Carlton takes over my blog. Views are his own and not necessarily, in fact, rarely, shared by the blog owner.

 
Carlton Adds To His Computer Knowledge

by Carlton Cat


Today I discovered that standing on the little blue-light button on the Mrs’s laptop turns it off.

I walked across it every time she got up from the desk - to get a cup of tea, to get a biscuit, to have a pee, to phone a friend, to answer the phone to a friend, to brush her hair, to switch on the radio… (she has the attention span of a retarded gnat).

She is now convinced it is broken and she and the Mr spent ages trying to ‘mend’ it. But, guess what, it now seems fine. Until tomorrow (evil laugh).




And here's a picture of another clever cat trying to break the password code. It didn't quite work - but it's only a matter of time...

Snake in the Grass



It's Friday- the day Carlton takes over my blog. Views are his own and not necessarily, in fact, rarely, shared by the blog owner.

 
The Snake In The Grass

by Carlton Cat


I WAS in the garden in the early hours of the morning, surveying my territory, when I came across a dead grass snake.

I could have stayed and played with it but, no, generous kitty that I am, I decided to make a present of it for the Mr and Mrs. And, let me tell you, it wasn’t easy dragging that long slippery thing through the cat flap and into the house.

I pulled it through the house, up the stairs and into the bedroom where both were sleeping. I put it on the pillow between them and settled back to watch their response when they awoke.


Not my paw - paw posed by model.

The Mrs was so excited she screamed. The Mr, however, didn’t seem to like the gift and was so rude he didn’t even adhere to the social niceties and pretend he was grateful.

He yelled, ‘What the… [insert VERY rude work],’ picked the snake up up by its tail, opened the window and threw it out.

Ungrateful wretch.
