You have to go phishing!

P.S. With kitty searching “phish” options, she might like to do so sitting on something like this window sill seat.

The fountain was a wash!

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013

drinkwell-drinking-fntnI must have the strangest cats in the world! Or so it seems.

And that bit about how curiosity killed the cat has nothing to do with our three; none of them has any curiosity in their bones at all!

As I’ve mentioned quite a few times over the years, Mikey and Billy do like to play around with the water from the bathtub faucet. (That all started several years ago when the faucet dripped for quite a while before we finally called the plumber.)

Mikey got used to sitting under the drip to drink, while Billy would get on the edge of the tub, lean over, turn his head sideways and up to get his drink that way. (Sometimes it would go down the wrong pipe or up his nose and he’d end up coughing!)

Because of their antics, I finally decided I’d get them a water fountain like this, designed for cats, that they could drink from. Actually, it’s a really neat thing–at least I thought so. But none of them, Jonny included, was interested in it. (It’s electric and cycles water through it, allowing the water to ripple.) There was hardly any noise, and it really was all around nice.

Initially, Billy seemed to be the most intrigued, although that’s not saying much. At least he stood and watched the running water for a few seconds.

I returned it, though, as otherwise the fountain didn’t get the time of day! And Mikey and Billy still expected regular water delivery from the tub faucet!

Milk, anyone?

This little one gets high points for “sticking with it”!

P.S. If your kitty gets tired of trying to “get the milk”, she might want to tackle this Treat Maze to get her “noms”.

Saturday, August 10th, 2013

Friskies-2013-video-award-smFriskies, about The Friskies “Best Cat Video of 2013” contest.

You may recall that a month ago I posted in Mews Nooz and here about The Friskies search for cat videos made by people and kitties like you and me.

Well, Christine tells me “Friskies and the contest judges have selected 20 Semi-Finalists to compete for a spot as one of 12 Finalists.” I’ll be posting more information here at Kittens ‘n Things as I get it, or repeat some of this here and in Mews Nooz.)

Voting is now open through noon ET, September 16, 2013, so get your voting paw or fingers ready, your favorite treats (cat munchies or pop corn), find a soft spot to relax and watch those videos. Then choose your favorites!

$25,000 is on the line here! “Four Category winners and one Fan Favorite winner will be awarded the money. AND a gold-plated Catuette trophy.”

So let’s help make it happen!

Yours in watching cat videos and voting our favorites,

and “The Boys”

P.S. We’re pretty certain you’re going to be pretty busy watching those videos from now until September 15. However, we also think you might want a “7th-inning stretch” to get the kinks out! So, here’s a bit of fun where you can direct your attention–it’s the FroliCat DART Laser Pet Toy

Really Cool Cats!

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

It’s that time of year again, folks:

– for those kitties that get outside finding a place to keep cool may be a challenge.

And for you there may be a challenge as well, if you’re going to get in the car and drive away.

Checking for little furballs under the car is always a good thing. Sometimes, it might also be important to look under the hood, too, while you’re at it!

In fact, just in the last couple of weeks I saw two TV news stories that showed animals being found in the innards of a vehicle; one four-legged friend that got into trouble was a dog; in a separate story, the other was a cat.

Yours in keeping your cats cool,

and “The Boys”

P.S. Here’s a neat little contraption that might help to keep your kitty cool. It’s the ProSelect Deluxe Thermostatic Pet Crate Fan
