All You Need Is Love - Of Cats!





I promised the other day to write more about celebrities and their cats. Next up is Beatle John Lennon who owned cats throughout his life.

He grew up with his Aunt Mimi in Liverpool, UK, and there was always a cat in the house. He spoke and wrote about three of them - Tich, the marmalade-coloured half-Persian, who died when John was at college; Tim, a half-Persian ginger who was a stray found in a snowy street by John; and a moggy called Sam. As a boy, John regularly cycled to Mr Smith the fishmonger in nearby Woolton village to buy pieces of hake for the cats.



When John and his first wife Cynthia and son Julian lived in Weybridge they had many cats, including a tabby called Mimi named after his beloved aunt.


He and second wife Yoko Ono are pictured above with a cat called Pepper, no doubt named after their iconic album Sergeant Pepper's Hearts Club Band.While John was with May Pang they had two cats called Major and Minor.

Here's a picture John drew of Pepper which, as you might expect, is quirkily bizarre!

Super Hero Goose Is Just Purrfect



Super hero fans often want to own the action figures which look so much like the stars that play the characters. Now, though, a cat that has muscled in on the action.

Hot Toys has revealed a one-sixth scale model of Brie Larson as Carol Danvers from the Captain Marvel films. The level of detail is astonishing. She even comes with a choice of energy effects to attach to her hands that show her in various states of action.



In addition there is a Deluxe Edition, whick comes with extra energy effects, Carol's rad leather bomber jacket and, the best accessory of all,  her intrepid sidekick Goose the cat. Goose's design level is purrfection itself.

But if you want to buy one you'll have to wait for a while. The Hot Toys Captain Marvel is set to come out around this time next year. There’s no price yet either, but you can expect to pay a little more if you want the deluxe version that comes with Goose.

Whatever that extra price is, it’ll be worth it for Captain Meowvel’s breakout star.

AI Cat Shelter


Here's a great idea. A man has invented the world's first cat shelter powered by Artificial Intelligence. Wan Xi, a computer engineer from Beijing in China, has created a temperature-controlled shelter that provides cats with food and water.

Cat lover Wan XI came up with the idea because he was concerned about the city's stray cat population. 

'At first, I just wanted to provide them with a warm place in winter with food and water that is not frozen,' Mr Xi told China Morning Daily. But after working with a team of animal welfare experts he came up with a more sophisticated design. 




With intelligent temperature and humidity control, as well as a ventilation system, the AI cat shelter provides a comfortable place for stray cats, providing fresh air and a constant temperature of 27 degrees Celsius, the ideal temperature for cats. Abundant food and water is provided and volunteers constantly refill the bowls.

The shelter claims it is able to identify 174 types of cat while flagging-up possible diseases via a smart camera. The sophisticated equipment can spot conditions like  gingivostomatitis, feline herpesvirus (FHV), and skin problems. It can also tell whether a cat has been sterilized. This data is then sent to nearby volunteers who can provide better help to these cats in need.

Crazy Eyes Olive


Here's a beautiful cat with a quirky appearance. Meet Olive with her quizzical expression,  crossed eyes and lopsided smile. But her looks haven't held her back, Olive, known as Crazy Eyes Olive on social media, has more than 30,000 Instagram followers.

Olive, who is a rescue cat, lives in New York with Michelle Traynor, 27.

Michelle and Olive

Michelle said: "Olive was alone and covered in tree sap and very sick when she was found.

"After a lot of baths and medication, she was finally well enough to come live with me. Despite her eyes, she can see well but she does have a bit of an underdeveloped jaw which causes her overbite. She can be shy, but loves to burrow under blankets."

You can follow Olive on Instagram here: Crazy Eyes Olive  Below are a few of Olive's Instagram pictures.

Book Shop Cat




Let me out! This cat was spotted at 11pm at night, staring out from a locked book shop in Hafnarfjörður, Iceland. The picture was then shared on a Facebook site called Kattavaktin which was set up to reunite lost cats with their owners.

The poster joked that the cat had broken into the store - and that provoked more comments! One person wondered if kitty had been employed as a watchcat. Another was concerned about the store's alarm system. But they agreed the cat was in no danger as it was warm inside the store but very cold outside.

It was later discovered that the cat is a regular visitor to the store and if it's hidden away when the shop is locked it stays the night - it was just that no one had taken a picture before! Kitty also often stops  by at a nearby pet supply shop.

The cat seems happy and well cared for so probably has a permanent home nearby.

Women Love Men Who Love Cats




CALLING ALL MEN!

If you want more success with the ladies - get yourself a cat.

A survey for the British Cats Protection showed that women were more attracted to men who liked animals.

Men who like cats are also more likely to be perceived by women as being nicer, more caring people.
Dr Scott Miller, TV Vet and celebrity Cats Protection Week supporter, was pleased to hear the survey findings.

"I think women find the presence of a cat in a bachelor pad not only a good indication of character, but also confirms our sensitive side which many women hopefully find attractive! As a single man, my two cats give me all the unconditional love I need on a daily basis."

Although there are almost 3.5 times the number of female cat owners in the UK than their male equivalent, the survey found that our cats are definitely benefiting from men having felines too.

"We found that cats are no longer a solely female domain," said researcher, Dr June McNicholas.

"Modern men are fast getting in touch with their feline side, and enjoy lavishing love and care on their cats just as much as women do, if not more. This can only be a good thing for all concerned."

According to the findings, single male cat owners are more likely than their female counterparts to have made, or consider making a sacrifice for their cat, including giving up a holiday (to avoid putting the cat in a cattery) and even going into debt for their feline friend if needs be! Single men are also almost as likely as single women to consider choosing their cat over their partner, or break a friendship rather than lose their cat.

The resounding majority of both male and female respondents agreed that it's not soppy or uncool for a man to love his furry friend, with almost three-quarters of men reporting their cats give them a much-needed cuddle factor, and the same number of single men enjoying lavishing care and attention on their cat.

Parcel Puss Travels 750 Miles By Accident





We all know how much cats LOVE cardboard boxes. If I fits, I sits!

But Baloo crept into a box destined to be transported 750 miles away. His owner Jackie Lake had packed up box of tyre rims and then sealed it up without realising her beloved pet was inside.

Baloo was carried off by a Purolator van on a 17 hour journey from Nova Scotia in Canada to Montreal. The next day Jackie realised Baloo was missing and frantically started to search for him. But by then he had arrived in Montreal and was discovered by a Puralator employee.



Jackie was relieved to get a call from the SPCA to say Baloo had been found and organised for him to be shipped home again.

"I can't stop thanking these people for helping me," said Jackie. "They took really good care of him. I'm just eternally grateful."

"He was a little freaked out when he first got home, he's had quite the ordeal. I just kept picking him up and saying 'I'm sorry,'" she said.

"But by the end of the night he was back to his old mischievous self. He ripped a whole bag of cat litter in the bathroom so he and his brother could play in it while I was sleeping."

Lake is glad to have Baloo back, though she said it might take some time for her three kids to forgive and forget.

"I'm told I'm not allowed near boxes or the animals any more!" she said.

How Tell If Your Cat Is Cross With You



Some cats are grumpier than others but even the most laid back kitty occasionally has a grouchy moment.

So if you want to avoid the sideswipe or the horrible hiss learn how to tell if your cat is mad at you.

1. They Give You The Cold Shoulder
If your cat's mad, they might leave the area you're in, avoid getting near you, and simply watch your movements from afar. Cats just like to have some space if there's something bothering them or stressing them out, or if their routine gets messed up.

2. They Swish That Tail
A cat's tail will show you how they're feeling, and if your cat is mad, it's going to show. "A tail that’s flickering back and forth quickly or held low can indicate an irritated cat," explained iHeartCats. "The hair may also stand up on an angry cat’s tail." Look out for a tail that's lowered instead of standing up tall, and swishing back and forth, as this shows kitty is annoyed — and if their tail starts thumping, their mood has probably escalated from annoyed to angry, and they could become aggressive. This is usually a clear indication that kitty isn't happy with you or the current sitch, so steer clear.



3. They Signal With Their Ears
Cats use their ears to express emotions. If your kitties' ears lower down or flatten out against their head, it could mean they're in a mood. A bad one. Steer clear of heavy pets until they've perked up again.


4. They Exhibit Fur-ious Fur
The fur all over their body seems to stand up straight, totally puffed up, and they may even arch their back to appear even larger. Fluffy and adorable as they may look, this is a clear indication that they're angry or in fight mode. Conversely, they may instead try to make themselves look smaller by crouching their body low to the ground and hunching their shoulders. If you notice either of these body movements, it's good to make sure there are no other factors around that could be triggering this response, such as another animal outside the window or another animal in the household who may be antagonizing them.

5. They Growl And Hiss
If your cat is growling or hissing at you, they're probably unhappy with you or what you're doing. A low growling sound (or a deep, guttural vocalization that is different than a meow) is usually a clear indication that your kitty is cross with you or the situation. Same goes with hissing: It's basically a cat's way of saying "lay off," so listen to them. Once a cat starts making these vocalizations, stop whatever you're doing — petting, playing, etc. — and give the cat some space.



6. The Paw Swipe
Almost every cat person has experienced a paw swipe while petting their beloved kitty. Whether it's a gentle bat of the paw or a claws-out, blood-drawing scratch depends on the cat and how angry they are, but in either case, it could indicate that your kitty wants you to step off and give them some space.

7. They Give You The Evil Eye
Cat faces can be expressive too. Does your cat ever just give a look and you know what it means? Sometimes you can tell your kitty is angry with you because they're watching you and giving you that subtle but identifiable angry eye. Another indication that they could be angry is that their pupils dilate — although this could happen for a wide variety of reasons, so look for other factors in conjunction with that before you assume your cat's mad at you based on pupil size alone.

Here are some really angry cats for you to take a look at. Be afraid, be very afraid!

The Purrfect Christmas Tree




If your Christmas tree ends up like the one in the picture - thanks to your 'helpful' kitty - one British firm has come up with a solution.

Argos are targeting people with naughty cats with an artificial tree that should prevent them from messing with decorations or, at worst, pulling the whole thing down.

That's because the tree, while still standing at 6 feet, is only a half parasol, meaning there isn't as much tree for cats to get their paws on and it could also be a preventative measure for any over excited little toddlers too!

The Argos tree.
The Home 6ft Half Parasol Christmas Tree's online product description reads "Keep your perfectly placed baubles, bows and bells out of reach of curious, crawling kids or your cats' playful paws with this 6ft parasol tree.

"If Santa's been extra generous, there's plenty of room to stack pressies underneath rather than scattering them around it. It's also a great alternative to the traditional tree if you're a tad tight for space."

Sounds like a good idea to me!

Does Your Cat Love You?



Not all cats are overtly affectionate, some are more withdrawn than others. But there are ways to tell whether your feline friends like you.

1. They headbutt you: Headbutting identifies you as one of their friends. They also use head butting to mark their territory as they have scent glands on their chins, cheeks, forehead and lips. You have been marked as part of the clan!

2. They roll over and show you their tummy: Their stomach is a vulnerable part of their body so if they roll over they are demonstrating that they love you. Warning: Cats may also expose their tummies as a submissive or defensive act when they feel cornered. If you don't know the cat well beware of rubbing their tummy, they may take a swipe at you.

3. They purr when they're with you: Cats reserve their purrs exclusively for the humans they love. They don't purr for other cats, except their own kittens. Warning: Purring can occasionally be a sign of pain. If they seem upset or distressed while purring,  check them over.

An affectionate head-butt.


4. Their tail twitches or curls around you: A cat reveals its mood with its tail. An erect and swishy tail shows its happy in your presence. A tail curled around your leg or arm is also a sign of friendship and affection. Warning: An erect tail combined with upright fur and an arched back means they feel threatened.

5. Your cat brings you presents: It might not be a present you actually want e.g. a mouse,  bird or frog, but it's the thought that counts! Actually, I don't want to disappoint anyone but it's not really a gift for you, cats bring items into a home they feel secure in.

6. Your cat nibbles you: A nibble rather than a full-on bite is a sign they like you.

7. They talk to you! Cat owners will be aware of the strange high-pitched gurgling sound. It means they're feeling friendly and sociable.

8. They follow you around: Some cat owners can't even go to the bathroom without an audience! They want to be with  you.

I love you enough to show  you my tummy.

9. They lick your hair or ears: They  are grooming you and grooming is a sign of care and affection in cats.

10. They knead you with their paws: Kittens knead their mother to stimulate milk flow, but adult cats use kneading as a way to say, "I trust you."

11. They blink slowly at you:  This is sometimes referred to as a "kitty kiss". It's a sign of love. Blink slowly back!

Baby Tiger Finds A Home



Who could resist this adorable little face?

It seems quite a few people could. The kitten was lying on a Malaysian street barely able to move with an injured leg and too weak to make a sound. Mother cat was nowhere to be found and pedestrians were passing her by.

Then Jieyan Ow came along. Jieyan had little experience of cats at but knew she couldn't leave the kitten to die in the street. She scooped her up and took her home.



The kitten was only about three weeks old and weighed just 260g (9oz). Jieyan took a crash course in caring for kittens, looking for advice on the internet. She tried to begin a regime of round-the-clock feeding but at first the little bundle was too scared to drink milk.

Soon, though, the kitten - which Jieyan named Baby Tiger - started to perk up and tucked in to some food. Soon she was purring for the first time.


The vet treated her leg which healed well.

Now Baby Tiger is part of the family. Jieyan said: "She has big round eyes, purrs a lot and demands attention all the time. She needs to be cuddled to sleep every day."

Here's a video of Baby Tiger. I hope you love it as much as I did.
