Pic of Mystery Cat Sleeping on Hospital Patient Goes Viral

“Andrew Falloon`s father was fresh out of an operation when he was visited by a surprise guest. After his wife went out, leaving the door slightly ajar, Mr. Falloon was found sound asleep with a cat resting on him. Mr. Falloon does not own a cat.”

Mashable

Fallon doesn`t own a cat, and the hospital doesn`t have any therapy cats on staff, it`s a mystery where the unusual visitor came from.

Some think the angelic visitor was dispatched by the Almighty to minister to the sick man recuperating from an operation. I think not. The kitty choose the sleeping patient to sleep on for the same reason that your pet sleeps on your laptop, radiator and your belly: felines love to sleep on anything that`s warm.

If Falloon had died from his operation, there`s little chance that the furball would have been found sleeping on the frigid corpse.

I must confess that the image of the sleeping beauty is adorable and I can understand why it`s been viewed online over 16 million times, but it`s not proof of a cat`s sympathetic nature.

When my cats hop on my bed at night, I`m grateful that their soothing purring and physical warmth will soon lull me to sleep, but I don`t fool myself into thinking that they sleep with me because they love me so much.

Study: Cats Know Their Names as Well as Dogs

“Call a dog by its name, and its tail wags, it starts panting happily, and it showers you with love and affection.

Call a cat by its name and … well, cats are a bit harder to read. Does the cat even know what its name is?

So researchers in Japan set out to answer the question: Can a cat understand the difference between its name and any other random word that sounds like it?

In any case, the results were clear: Most of the cats moved their head or ears in response to hearing their name. The results, researchers said, showed that the cats could identify their own names among other, similar words.”

NPR

When I adopted a 7-year-old 25-pound kitty from the Humane Society, the animal shelter employee told me that he was named “Tico” by his previous owner, so I decided not to change his name.

When I took him home he failed to respond to his name, at first I thought he was just too fat, lazy and indifferent to pay any attention to me. But after a few days of failing to respond to his name, I grew worried that he might be deaf, and I took him to the vet. The vet`s verdict was that he wasn`t deaf at all, but a typical feline who`s too arrogant to respond to his slave`s voice.

No fat cat is going to outsmart me, so every time I opened his can of food I simultaneously called him, and now he usually acknowledges me when I call out his name.

There`s more than one way to skin a cat, and there`s more than one way to get your kitty`s attention.

Don`t let your cat fool you, he darn well can recognize his name.

Kitty the Cat and Leila the Chihuahua: A Love Story! Video!

“An unlikely duo at MSPCA-Angell`s animal shelter in Boston is hoping to be adopted together after they were surrendered in the same crate.

A cat named Kitty and her Chihuahua best friend Leila were surrendered to the Jamaica Plain animal shelter on March 14 after their owners lost their home and could not find a new place to accommodate the pets.

The pet pair`s bond is so paws-itively unique and true, that the two were even surrendered to the shelter in the same pet carrier.”

NECN

A friendship rarely blossoms between a cat and a dog, the natural state of affairs is them being at each other`s throats.

If you put a cat and a dog in the same pet carrier mayhem and perhaps murder will soon ensue.

But a cat named Kitty and dog named Leila were surrendered to an animal shelter in the same crate. It turns out that these adorable creatures are best buddies, and the animal shelter is trying to find an owner that will adopt them as a pair.

The Palestinians and the Israelis may never live side by side in peace, and Trump supporters and Democrats may never hold hands and sing Kumbaya, but the friendship between Kitty and Leila gives me hope that humans can resolve some of their differences.

Cat Ladies are the Last Hope of Humanity!

In days gone by young women lived in fear that they would die a spinster or old maid. Their version of happiness and fulfillment was spawning a brood of bouncing baby boys and adorable baby girls.

In the age of climate change, overpopulation, and not to mention feminism, women don`t judge their self-worth by how many children they have. Children are viewed as an infection, rather than as a blessing from God, by a growing number of enlightened individuals.

Today women fear that they will become cat ladies, “OMG I`m going to be a cat lady” a woman wails when she`s 30-something and still single. Cat ladies – who are just single older ladies with felines — represent abject failure in the eyes of young women.

But cat ladies shouldn`t be looked down upon with disdain or sympathy, they deserve our respect for realizing that a small fluffy kitten will give them more comfort, companionship and fulfillment than any man or woman ever could.

They also deserve our gratitude for not giving birth to greedy insatiable little monsters who pollute the Earth and kill off thousands of other species of living creatures.

Indeed I would urge all women and men to save the Earth, and forgo having any children, and adopt a kitten or a puppy from an animal shelter instead.

God save cat ladies, they are the hope of humankind!

Pensacola Mourns the death of Moose the East Hill Publix Cat

“The East Hill neighborhood and downtown Pensacola communities are paying respects to Moose the East Hill Publix cat, a cat they considered their own.

Moose`s owners say they found his gray flea collar Tuesday afternoon while visiting the site on Cervantes Street and 11th Avenue where a cat fitting Moose`s description was found dead by an East Hill Publix employee on Sunday morning.

The tabby cat, brightened the lives of Publix customers over the past two years simply by sitting in front of the store and showing affection to strangers.”

Pensacola News Journal

Cats leave a lasting impact on the lives of their owners, and I memorialized by felines Ebony and Patches when they died by posting online obituaries. It`s been almost twenty years since Patches died and I still remember her mischievous nature, her constant meowing, and her penchant for cuddling with me while I was watching TV.

Moose didn`t belong to one owner, he was a fixture in downtown Pensacola, and he is mourned by hundreds who came in contact with him every day. Moose didn`t perform tricks to earn the love of the people who lived or worked in downtown Pensacola, he earned their undying affection simply by sitting in front of the East Hill Public store.

I hope that when I die somebody will send flowers to my funeral or post an online memorial.

Rest in peace Moose, you are sorely missed!

Compilation of Cat Videos to Play at a Movie House Near You

“Seventy minutes of cute cat videos may be some people`s idea of hell, but they`re not the target audience for `CatVideoFest,` a celebration of feline belovedness coming to Baltimore`s Landmark Theatres Harbor East on March 11.

The compilation is culled from direct submissions as well as the internet (if you`ve ever been on YouTube, you know how pervasive videos of adorable cat antics are) and other sources.

Part of the proceeds from `CatVideoFest,` which is playing at movie theaters throughout the country in February and March, will be earmarked for local cat charities, shelters and animal welfare organizations.”

Baltimore Sun

I rarely go to the movies because movie theaters attract humans – loud, inconsiderate, dirty, smelly humans.

I prefer to watch movies on Netflix or Amazon Prime in the privacy of my home with my cats napping on my lap.

However I might be enticed to go to the local multiplex to see “CatVideoFest,” I`ve seen thousands of cat videos online, but I`ve never seen a cat video on a huge screen.

The only drawback is that I can`t take my kitties with me, and of course I will have to put up with the company of humans for more than an hour.

The Coolest Cat on the Internet

Humans go to desperate and expensive lengths to try to look cool: Designer clothes, bling, fancy hair-do, and of course cool shades.

But a cat is chill AF without trying, a feline even looks cool taking a dump in the litter box.

I`ve posted tons of pics of my kitties on Facebook, and I never have to pose them in a manner that makes them look cool. They are naturally cool, all I have to do is snap the pic.

Click the link at the bottom of the page to see photos and a video of a cool cat lying on his back on his owner`s backpack in a bank in Brazil. In crime-ridden Brazil humans can`t afford to be chill in a bank because a bank robbery make break out at any time. But a cat`s default mode is chill, and they are chill anytime and anyplace.

The only complaint I have is that the cat is wearing sunglasses! Talk about overkill, the kitty doesn`t need shades to look cool.

Am I right, or what?

Viral Video: Cat Feeds Dog Popcorn

Mat cat, Tico, takes a catnap with me every day, but she sleeps with my pooch, Mandy every night. Mandy took an instant liking to my new kitten, Hady. Mandy, who is 80-something in human years, seems to be energized by watching Handy run circles around her. Whoever said that cats and dogs don`t get along is doggone wrong!

Mandy loves popcorn, whenever I eat the delicious snack I l always share with her. Here`s a heartwarming video that proves that cats and dogs love on each other, and that dogs love popcorn:

Viral Video: Maggi the Pooch and Pumpkin the Kitty Love on Each Other

In the holiday season peace and goodwill should prevail, but the human heart is cold and heartless and there`s precious little love and warmth even during this festive time.

Democrats and Republican don`t take a break from sniping at each other during the holidays, and we don`t take a timeout from quarreling with our family and friends.

We must look to the animal kingdom for an example of true love and friendship. A video that`s garnered millions of views on Twitter depicts a heartwarming moment between a pooch and a kitty.

The short clip shows doggie Maggi and her friend kitty Pumpkin loving on each other. Maggi gently pets Pumpkin`s back, and Pumpkin reciprocates by hugging Maggi.

Can`t we all just get along like Maggie and Pumpkin?
