Cat Castles & Pet News
Since Dragon Boy has shed big baby crocodile tears about things getting a bit "depressing" topic-wise lately, I figure we'll stir up some happy talk so he doesn't get his tail in a twist.
I was spending time with the cats last night, and they kill me the way they discard favorite places. Tarzan and Catfish have teepees and a variety of cat beds, not to mention their cat tree, human bed and furniture. Catfish, especially, will pick a favorite spot, and I'll see him for a week or so always in it, like his teepee. Then he won't go in it for ages, instead picking one of the other cat beds. He has some sort of rotation system going on that I can't figure out. How quickly they get bored. Are your cats like that? Dogs don't seem to do this.
Above are Pam's three cats in some sort of crazy cat contraption! Reminds me of a baby walker or fold-out sling-style lawn chair with cup holders! What pretty cats! Courney, Penelope and Brittany certainly seem to love this thing, which, by the way, has nothing on the cat-furniture inventions we all were talking about below.
Now for some news: for those of you who check out the Pets of the Week in the Sunday Leaf-Chronicle, that feature will be moving to Wednesdays mid-month. Also in the paper Wednesday will be exerpts from our Pet People blog! So keep an eye out for that. We will be expanding our community news section and will always be on the lookout for human interest stories (and pictures) of all kinds: people with interesting hobbies, good deeds, club activities, collectors, family events, church activities, animal news, classes--just about anything people are involved with in their communities. So, if you know of anything or anyone that would make for a good tale, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your tip.
I keep promising to tell you Yogi's story, but since Dragon Boy hasn't dried his eyes yet, I will wait until this weekend to give him a chance to recover. We need him in good shape to build all our cat-traption ideas!
