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!

It`s not easy buying a Valentine`s Day gift for a cat lady, they prefer cat-themed gifts, but they already own every cat related object in the world.

That`s scary as hell, maybe you`d better give them to her on Halloween/

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?

Cat Loves Riding Llama

Cats are Gods

“The lama serves its meowjesty, giving the insolent cat a ride during cold showy weather so the kitty doesn`t freeze its paws.”

Sputnik

Felines demand to be treated like royalty, they expect gourmet cat food, spotless litter boxes, and frequent petting. If we are properly servile and obsequious they might reward us with a meow or a purr.

But it turns out that cats treat all animals with disdain, this insolent kitty is riding on top of a llama during a snowy day so she won`t freeze her paws.

Some things never change, the ancient Egyptians considered cats deities, and we`re still treating them like gods.

Check out the video, I don`t detect an ounce of gratitude in the cat`s expression.

Peaceful Pics of Cats Nestling in Christmas Trees

Cat enjoys nesting in Christmas Tree

This is a link to photos and videos of felines peacefully nesting in Christmas trees. Looking at these image will fill you with the Christmas spirit up the wazoo.

Unfortunately, in real life a cat will nestle in a Xmas tree only after he has bit all the Christmas lights and littered your living room with tinsel.

I`ve owned cats all my adult life, and I learned decades ago that if you own one of these mischievous critters don`t even try setting up a Christmas tree.

But by all means enjoy these stress-relieving images of kitties nestling in Christmas trees. You might also enjoy pics of unicorns with butterflies streaming out of their rear ends.

Cat Gets Stuck in Dryer’s Vent

The cat`s owners discovered her in the tight spot, but were unable to free their kitty from the 6-in.-wide space she managed to crawl into.

“According to the RSPCA, a feline found herself caught in the pipework of a tumble dryer after crawling into the machine`s vent.

Unsure what to do next, the owners called RSPCA for help.”

People Magazine

It`s axiomatic that cats love warm dryers, whenever I open my dryer if I`m not paying attention one of my cats will jump in and snuggle in my warm clothes. I may seem like a terrible cat owner, but I`ve accidentally closed my dryer with one of my mischievous kitties inside.

I can certainly understand a feline jumping into a dryer, but until now I`ve never heard of a cat crawling into the machine`s vent.

When your cat gets stuck in a tree you call the fire department, and I guess when it gets stuck in a dryer`s vent you call the SPCA.

An officer from the SPCA greased the pipe with butter and pushed the cat out of the vent. The cat wasn`t injured, only her pride was hurt as she tried to lick off the butter from her fur.

On the Death of My Cat Ebony

I was watching coverage of President George HW Bush`s state funeral, and my eyes got a little bit moist when I heard his son President George W. Bush eulogize him. Bush had a huge impact on the 20th century and his life and death touched millions around the globe.

I had seen my cat Ebony underneath the sofa earlier in the morning, not an unusual spot for her to chill out. But a sense of foreboding made me check on her again — she was still in the same spot and in the same posture. I immediately pulled out the sofa, and I lifted her stiff carcass and balled my eyes out.

Some individuals, like the aforementioned Bush, leave a huge imprint on history, but most of us only affect the lives of our family and close friends. When my heart stops beating and my body turns cold and rigid, I hope that family, friends and colleagues will have warm remembrances.

Pets also touch the lives of their families, for eighteen years I enjoyed Ebony`s companionship. Each of my pets has his own distinctive quirk, Ebony was an attention whore, and when I was watching TV or writing essays she would demand my attention by gently touching my arm with her paw.

Ebony touched my arm and my heart, and I will sorely miss her. She`s at the pearly gates now, I suppose, trying to get St. Peter`s attention by touching him on the arm.

Crazy Cat Lady Rescuing Her Kitty Gets Stuck in Tree

“A woman in North Highlands got stuck in a tree Thursday and had to be rescued by Sacramento Metro Fire personnel after trying to rescue a cat, according to a tweet from Metro Fire.”

Sacramento Bee

Firefighters rescue a cat stuck in a tree: not news it happens all the time.

Cops bash a young black man upside the head for jaywalking: not news it happens all the time.

Firefighters rescue a crazy cat lady who got stuck in a 30-foot tree trying to rescue her kitty: now we`re talking.

I love Tico, my 25-pound, kitty, and if fatso got stuck in a 5-foot tree (that`s probably as high as he could climb), I wouldn`t risk injury trying to save him. I`m an old codger and my bones are brittle, I`d break a bone if I fell off a step stool.

I bet the woman felt like the biggest fool in the world when she had to be rescued by first responders, especially after the feline descended the tree on its own.

Cat Sashays Down Catwalk

“A cat who wandered onto the runway during a fashion show in Turkey managed to upstage the models themselves.

A video taken at Istanbul`s Esmod International Fashion Show shows the nonchalant feline grooming itself before strutting down the catwalk and playfully lashing out at a model trying to steal its thunder.”

Time

A cat strutting down a catwalk isn`t as strange as it may seem, they are natural born divas and they love the spotlight. I have two cats, and they rarely run from one room to another instead they casually stroll around my house as if they are trying to impress me with their regal walk.

I imagine most of the catcalls at the fashion show in Turkey were for the cute kitty, she was really working it.

The cat tried to scratch another model, typical catty model behavior. I`m just glad it didn`t spark a catfight.

Anyway, enjoy the video:

Crazy Cat Lady Kicked Off Flight After Trying to Smuggle Her Cat for Emotional Support

“A woman who smuggled her cat onto a plane was kicked off of the flight by stunned cabin crew.

The passenger from the US told British Airways flight attendants who caught her with the cat she needed it for `emotional support`.

The cat was in her hand luggage, according to the Daily Record, who was told the cat could have got through security at Glasgow Airport.

The woman almost got away with it – but when staff approached her to put her bag in the overhead locker because she was sitting in an emergency exit – the moggie in a box was spotted.”

Daily Mail

Folks are really abusing the concept of therapy animals, passengers have been booted from flights for having “support animals” ranging from squirrels to snakes to pigs. So don`t even think about claiming that a pig is your emotional support animal, for God`s sake just check in Rosie O`Donnell and let her travel in the baggage compartment.

This woman should have been arrested for animal cruelty, how she dare stuff her poor kitty in her handbag. The traumatized cat could have used an emotional support animal of his own.

I love my cats, but I leave my kitties at home, secure in the knowledge that I can deal with whatever as long as I`m wearing my big girl Garfield panties.

If this woman can`t leave her house without a support animal, she should stay home and play with her cat.

Morris the Cat Likes to Ride Champy the Horse: Video

This horse had never been ridden before, and this shelter cat had never had any friends – but as soon as they met, the cat jumped on the horses back and started riding him everywhere!

YouTube video description

With all due respect Champy the horse and Morris the cat aren`t friends, felines don`t have friends, they only have servants.

I lavish my cats with toys and pet furniture, buy them gourmet cat food, and clean their litter boxes every day, but I realize cats consider themselves deities, and they regard me as a faithful servant.

Morris climbs on top of Champy simply because cats like high places where they can survey their kingdom. Morris has as much affection for Champy as he does for a tall bookcase.

I must admit they make a cute pair, but they ain`t buddies!

Cats Love Playing Hide and Seek

Cats have a penchant for disappearing and then magically reappearing, unfazed by the havoc they`ve caused.

I have a tiny house and you`d think my 25-pound cat, Tico, would be unable to hide from me for more than a few seconds. But on more than a dozen occasions I`ve torn apart my house looking for the obese feline, and only when I`m exhausted from my search will Tico emerge from God knows where.

I don`t know where my cats disappear when I can`t find them, perhaps they can slide in and out of alternate universes, or maybe the mysterious creatures have the ability of becoming invisible when they want some privacy.

This essay is a warning for new cat owners, if you can`t find your furry critter, hold off on posting a missing cat message on Facebook. Stop looking for the mischievous kitty, plop down on the sofa and watch TV, and I guarantee he will emerge out of the void.

‘Cat Grandpa’ Goes Viral After Pet Shelter Shares Pics of Him Sleeping With Cats

“Terry Lauerman of De Pere has become an online sensation this week after the pet shelter where he volunteers shared photos showing the 75-year-old – who has since been dubbed The Cat Grandpa – fast asleep while snuggling several of the shelter`s cats.

Safe Haven Pet Sanctuary Inc.`s Facebook post about Lauerman has garnered over 80,000 reactions and 22,000 shares since Tuesday afternoon – and those numbers continue to climb. The post also made its way onto social news sites like Reddit and BuzzFeed, and was covered Thursday by Good Morning America.

We are so lucky to have a human like Terry. Terry just came along one day and introduced himself. He said he`d like to brush cats. Eventually it became everyday. He brushes all of the cats, and can tell you about all of their likes and dislikes. He also accidentally falls asleep most days. We don`t mind – Cats need this! Terry is a wonderful volunteer.”

Green Bay Press Gazette

I wish I could post a video or photograph that would go viral, but I`m not as photogenic as a cute kitten, I don`t have any discernible talents, I don`t possess a grotesquely large butt capable of breaking the Internet, and I`m too lazy to learn a trick that will elicit views.

However I love taking naps with my cats, and maybe if I post a pic of Tico, my 25-pound kitty, plopped on my head as I`m taking a nap, we`ll become Internet sensations.

I`m jealous of The Cat Grandpa, he doesn`t clean the litter boxes or perform any other useful service at the pet shelter, all he does is brush the cats and take naps with them, and suddenly he`s a geriatric pimp.


Move over Cat Grandpa, I`m going to dethrone you as the most lovable cat-loving old codger on the Internet.

Does Your Cat Hate You?

I don`t need to hire a soothsayer or a pet psychologist to determine if my pooch, Mandy loves me. Mandy loves me to death, her love is manifest in her sloppy kisses, wagging of her tail, and the love-struck look in her eyes whenever I`m with her.

Dogs wear their hearts on their sleeves, but you never know where you stand with your feline companions. I love my kitties, Tico and Ebony, but I sometimes wonder if they hate me, and if they`re plotting to kill me. Mind you I`ve had Ebony for 18 years, and Tico for about five years, and I still don`t know if they would miss me if I got run over by a Mack truck.

An expression vaguely resembling love, or at least an absence of hatred, flits across their face, and I rush over to pet them, and they reward me with a hiss or a scratch.

Even though I don`t know if my love is reciprocated, I still adore my cats. I suspect that they really do love me, but have issues expressing their affection.

I am dealing with serious medical issues and I take a nap every day before going to work, and I call Tico, and he always, without fail, snuggles next to my face, and naps with me. If that isn`t love …

Cat Lady Needs to Get a Clue!

“DEAR JOAN: My cat has started waking me up at 4 a.m. every morning to be fed. She won`t take no for an answer. She walks all over me, swats my nose, meows in my ear and knocks things off my dresser if I don`t respond.

If I try locking her out of my room, she scratches at the door and howls. She won`t stop. She once continued with that behavior for two hours until I finally gave up and fed her.

What can be done to stop this? I love my cat, but 4 in the morning, especially on a weekend, is too much.”

G.G., Concord

The Mercury News

Dear Clueless Cat Lady: Get a clue!

Why did the chicken cross the road? Because it was a biological imperative to risk getting run over to discover that was on the other side.

Why is your kitty waking you up at an ungodly hour in the morning to be fed? It`s not because she is a diabetic with cravings that must be sated, like all cats she`s a jerk, plain and simple. I love my cats to death, but I accept that jerk-life behavior is as normal as purring and meowing.

What can be done to stop this? Nothing! Absolutely Nothing! A cat is the master of any home, especially a home where the only occupant is a cat lady. A feline expects nothing less than to be catered to at any hour of the day or night.

Your cat literally walks all over you, get used to it, that`s a small price to pay for having a kitty in your home.

Taking Your Kitty to the Vet? Calm Your Cat With a New Feline Radio Station!

“No cat relishes a trip to the vet. Being confined to a cramped carrier and hauled out of the house is a stress-inducing experience for most of our feline friends. But turning on the radio could help. Whiskas recently launched a radio station devoted to playing soothing sounds to keep cats feeling tranquil on the way to the veterinarian, according to Little Black Book.

Cat Calm Radio plays music by David Teie, a composer who writes music targeted at cats` preferences. His songs feature sounds that will be familiar and soothing to cats, like beats similar to the sound of suckling milk, played at the frequencies cats use to communicate with each other. Researchers have found that cats respond better to his cat-specific tunes than to human music.”

Mental Floss

I`ve owned cats all of my adult life, and if there`s anything I`ve learned about feline psychology is that they hate the trip to the vet. A ten-minute trip to the vet feels like an eternity, as soon as you place your kitty in a carrier and place him in your car he turns into Satan`s familiar.

When I drove from Oakland, CA to my new home in Lynchburg, VA I took my cat, Patches with me, but I wouldn`t have survived the trip with my sanity intact, had I not administered a tranquilizing pill to her every day.

If you think you are familiar with your new pussy cat`s vocalizations, just wait until you take him to the vet for the first time, he will unleash a cacophony seemingly emanating from the pit of hell.

You can whisper, “Oh pussy it`s going to be OK” all you want, put it won`t calm the savage beast. He won`t transform back into the purring sweetheart that you love until he`s back home.

Thanks God Whiskas has launched a radio station devoted to playing soothing sounds to keep kitties tranquil on the way to the vet. Music has a calming effect on me, after a bad day at work I will play a Sade CD and by the time I`m home I`ll be cool and calm. I`m sure that cat-specific tunes will have a similar effect on our pets.

Cat Calm Radio was launched to promote “National Take Your Cat to the Vet Day.” Check it out:

Bruno the Fat Cat Who Stands on His Hind Legs When He’s Hungry Adopted

“After worldwide interest Bruno the cat has a new home.

The Russian Blue became an internet sensation after Morton Grove shelter Wright Way announced he was looking for a new family. Cats of his breed usually are supposed to weigh between 7-10 pounds; Bruno tips the scale at 25 pounds.

Bruno likes to stand on his hind legs, usually when he wants food. No one is sure how he learned this special trick, but everyone agrees it`s hilarious.”

ABC News

Bruno is a one-trick pony, he gained Internet fame because he has a penchant for standing up when he wants to be fed.

My kitty, Tico, also tips the scales at 25 pounds, and when he`s hungry he doesn`t stand on his hind legs, he walks on my belly and face until I get the message.

I`m not sure what I would do if Tico stood up on his hind legs, would I call the vet, an exorcist, or would I grab my cell phone and try to monetize the freak by posting videos on YouTube?

I`m glad Bruno found a forever home; I hope his new owner will pamper him.

Top Ten Ways to Celebrate International Cat Day

Flood the inbox of all of your friends and acquaintances with cat pics.

Respond only with a “meow” or a “purr” all freaking day long.

Act finicky, for example when the cashier at McDonald`s ask you “Do you want fries with that?” answer “Yes, but make sure they are lightly salted, uniform in size, and not too hot.”

Knead your coworker`s belly, and when they stare at you in amazement, say “You`re Welcome” and walk away.

Take a crap in your neighbor`s flower bed.

Take a nap on your coworker`s keyboard.

Wake up your partner by biting her toe.

Walk on your girlfriend when she`s napping on the sofa, and when she screams, “What the hell is wrong with you? reply “I`m hungry bitch, feed me.”

Yell in a crowded restaurant, “Someone Heimlich maneuver my punk ass, I have a hairball stuck in my throat.”

Take a Garfield stuffed animal to work and set up a shrine to Lord Cat in your cubicle.
