Furkids Kitty Kommercial.
Scroll down the page and watch the video ad, it's a laugh. However, I'd advise you to turn down the sound when he sings at the end.

It's also on YouTube:

After all that she apparently ended life in a research laboratory. Ungrateful humans.

You can't keep a good cat in (or out)!

Post by Stardust on 28th January 2017, 19:29

No unlocked door will keep a cat in, or out. These free spirits will wander where they will. annoyed

If there's a warning to get hankies out, then I won't watch the thing at all.  I could never watch Animal Hospital on telly because just couldn't bear to watch helpless little animals suffering.  I know in most cases they're made better in the programme, but I still find it very difficult dealing with the beforehand.  Same with those rescue programmes you see every now and then. 

The one with the cats opening doors ... Very Happy .   I love the ones where they open the door and the dog or another cat comes in or out through it.  My cat Pepsi was able to open every door in the house except the front and back doors (thank goodness!)  It was really quite funny to watch because sometimes we would see his sister Poppy (who couldn't do it) sometimes go over to him and seemingly [in cat speak] - ask him to open the door for her, because he would get up, go over and open the door for her to go through and then just go back to where he was in the first place.

Happy tears, Kitkat, you can go ahead and watch it. It's a little girl adopting a homeless kitten.

Certainly sounds like your two cats could speak proper language to each other going from that story of Poppy and Pepsi. Wouldn't it be great if we could learn to communicate with them in their own language.

Update on feral cats in Australia

Post by Stardust on 1st February 2017, 16:46

Feral cats now cover almost all of Australia, numbering up to 6.3 million, at a density of one cat for every 4 sq km, and they are held responsible for the extinction of around 20 native Australian species.

Singapore cats

Post by Stardust on 6th February 2017, 16:07

Sadly, I think the "Lion City Kitty" cat museum in Singapore is now closed, but their site it still up and well worth a visit for all the videos and photos. Strangely the calendar has 2017, so maybe they've just moved, but if so I didn't find out where to and surely they'd have kept the same internet link (?).

I just watched all the videos in their Press Room and loved them, even the two "Crazy about Chinese" ones, laughing then having a tear in my eye when the little girl didn't get to adopt a cat (Mummy said no) - this shows once again that knowing the language is not essential to getting the meaning.

Please take a look. Cat lovers will enjoy it. Remember to check out the blog too.

Bonifazii the cat and Yasha the parakeet

Post by Stardust on 8th February 2017, 21:03

Best friends. Cute photos. Watch the short video at the end (it replays three times, so when you've seen it once and the cat walks off followed by the parakeet the rest is just repeat).

Snow leopard desperately seeking mate, sounds like he's getting a bit annoyed at the wait.
