No Litterbox Required for This Clever Cat

Swakke is one cat with no interest in using a litter box. If a toilet is good enough for humans, then it’s good enough for him too. The self-taught tabby has mastered the act, displaying an impressive agility along with the intelligence of figuring this out in the first place. Credit: YouTube/Simon Newport

Cats Versus Christmas Trees

A Christmas tree at home can cause confusion for pets who struggle to understand the point; for Cole and Marmalade there is only one approach to take: attack! Their owner is wise to their ways and knows that attempting to put up a tree is futile. This year however, with his sick pet in mind, he put the tree up solely for his cats’ enjoyment, knowing the pleasure the pair will get from destroying it! YouTube/Cole and Marmalade

Pets and the Afterlife

Editor's Note: One of the strongest paranormal experiences I ever had was feeling a kitty (that wasn't there) jump on the bed and walk over and snuggle up next to me. At first I  thought one of my cats had jumped on the bed, I was certain of it. Then I looked down, saw no cat was there, but yet felt the last few footsteps and the snuggling up. My wife had independently and unbeknownst to me experienced the same thing. These events happened shortly after losing her most beloved kitty of her life named Buzzy and stopped after getting a new kitty that looked and acted very much like him named Stripe.

Pets and domestic violence

Petitioning U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate, Mike Honda

Pass the PAWS Act

Petition by Debbie Szot
United States
92,159
Supporters
As a lifelong animal lover and domestic violence survivor, it breaks my heart when I get a telephone call from our local women's shelter WISE. Often the shelter advocate on the telephone has just witnessed a woman drive up to the shelter with a dog or cat in her car. Far too often, she’s come to WISE as a last resort; if they can’t help her find a safe place for her beloved pet, she’ll return to her abuser because she doesn’t want to leave her companion in their dangerous hands. That's when the shelter advocate contacts me at the Riley MacKenzie Fund.
The facts are, up to 40% of domestic violence survivors report that they’ve returned to an abusive partner out of concern for their pet. Sadly, only 3% of domestic violence shelters have the resources to accommodate animals.
That’s why this petition has been started asking Congress to pass the PAWS Act, which would expand federal protections for the pets of domestic violence victims and set up a federal grant program to help acquire safe shelter for their pets.
I left an abusive marriage over twenty five years ago. Thankfully my ex-husband never threatened MacKenzie, my faithful Scottish Terrier, but I discovered from my work on the board of a local domestic violence shelter that many fellow survivors aren’t so lucky. I now know that threatening, maiming, or killing a pet is one of the most common ways an abuser keeps their victim from leaving.
In 2009, I founded the Riley MacKenzie Fund that helps stray and abandoned animals and works to spay and neuter animals, but also in part helps survivors of domestic violence find a safe place for their four-legged companions while they get out of harm’s way. The Riley MacKenzie Fund relies solely on donations to pay for pets to be rehomed or in some cases to be boarded at a local veterinarian’s office while their owners focus on getting back on their feet. Nothing makes me happier than seeing the joyful reunion between a woman and her cherished pet; many domestic violence victims say getting their dog or cat back is the first step toward rebuilding their life.
Unfortunately, we are a small organization and we can only pay the boarding fees for a limited amount of time. One of the hardest parts of our work is telling survivors we’re going to have to help them put their pet up for adoption because we can’t afford to board them any longer.
The PAWS Act, which is a bipartisan piece of legislation, could change that by establishing a fund that would allow organizations like us to help more survivors and their pets. Will you sign the petition asking Congress to pass it?
I’m confident that with enough support, we can convince our legislators in Washington to do the right thing. With your help, we can make sure that no domestic violence survivor ever has to choose between her pet and her safety ever again.

8 Things People Do That Cats Hate



We love our cats and consider them family. “Cute” cat videos go viral in minutes. Your cat may not think our human behavior is always so cute, yet we expect our cats to adjust to our crazy human environment. As responsible pet parents, it’s important for us to understand their world. Pay careful attention to your cat’s reactions to the following human behaviors:
ThinkstockPhotos-469903548
1. Not Providing A Safe Hiding Space
When the doorbell rings, dogs usually think it’s the most exciting part of their day. Cats sometimes run and hide under the bed or sofa. Cats require consistency in their environment. Most don’t like change. Allow them to resort to behavior that is comforting for them when anything new appears in their environment.
2. Ignoring Loud Noises
Change in the cat’s physical environment—strangers, different food, additional animals, loud noises, illness, etc.—is a major contributor to stress, which frequently leads to disease.  Cats prefer their homes to be stable and consistent. Acute feline stress turns into chronic irritation, manifesting in disease and behavioral challenges. Try to minimize obtrusive sounds by taking a sonic inventory and lowering the volume on household appliances and other sounds you can control, including the television, radio and computer. Even moving her food bowl away from a noisy appliance can make a difference in her eating habits.
3. Giving Them Tummy Rubs
My dogs love their tummy rubs and beg for them. However, the stomach is a cat’s most vulnerable area and many go into predatory mode when people try and rub their tummies. I’ve had my hand scratched enough times to know I should stay away from this area altogether, particularly with a cat I don’t know well. Of course there are exceptions. The cat pictured above is loving her belly scratch. Observe your cat’s body language and notice if she is tense or like jello.

ThinkstockPhotos-106536341
4. Hugging Them
Some cats love being hugged. Others don’t. Veterinarian Rebecca Jackson advised Pet360 readers to follow their cats body language. If he tries to get away, just let him. If he crawls towards you purring loudly and melts in your arms when you pick him up, he’ll be just as happy being held as you are hugging him.
5. Petting Them Aggressively
Some cats like to be pet, others don’t. Let your cat take the lead. Place your hand by your side, and see if Fluffy comes to you. Most cats don’t like it when you reach to them and then pet them too fast and rough. Watch your cat’s behavior. She’ll let you know how much and how gentle she prefers to be pet. If she wants to move away from you, let her.
6. Treating Fluffy Like Fido or A Baby
While cats may be the size of puppies and babies, they are still cats.  Not all of them like constant attention. Most don’t prefer to be chased around and picked up, then held tight. Observe your cat’s behavior. Let her greet you when you come home. She’ll let you know when she wants attention. Her meows and rubs against your legs will give you a clue.
ThinkstockPhotos-177370443
7. Lack of Play Time
If you have an indoor cat, she isn’t able to use all of her hunting instincts. But, you can still encourage them inside. Schedule playtime together daily. Use a toy for her to chase and hunt, and sometimes let her catch her prey. It will nurture your relationship and you’ll quickly discover that the playtime benefits you as much as her.
ThinkstockPhotos-178620547
8. Dropping Him Off at a Shelter
When we choose to be a pet-parent, it isn’t a part-time job with an end date. It means forever. If your cat is demonstrating behavior problems, consult with your veterinarian and/or a cat behaviorist. If you are having financial problems, there are organizations that can help with Fluffy’s veterinary care. If you make a trip to your local shelter, be a volunteer, not a death sentence for your cat.

BELGIUM CENSORS FREE SPEECH WITH KITTEN PHOTOS DURING TERROR RAID

Censorship gives officials opportunity to engage in cover-up

Kit Daniels | Infowars.com - NOVEMBER 23, 2015

Belgium Censors Free Speech With Kitten Photos During Terror Raid
IMAGE CREDITS: FURLINED / FLICKR.
After Belgian police asked residents to censor themselves on social media during a terrorist raid, the compliant public saturated Twitter with kitten photos to drown out news on the #BrusselsLockdown.
The police told local Twitter users to refrain from posting live updates on the search for Paris terror suspect Salah Abdeslam to “keep the police and military safe.”

“To prevent terrorists from following police activity, Belgian police asked residents not to share details of the #BrusselsLockdown via social media, and civilians took over the hashtag and flooded it with pictures of their feline friends,” Twitter said in a statement.



But by burying news on the raid with kitten photos and by censoring their own speech, residents gave Belgium officials the opportunity to suppress facts which placed authorities in a bad light while also allowing corrupt government officials to potentially engage in a cover-up.

This is nothing short of an attack on the press because media outlets use social media as a primary source of news, and such censorship only benefits the government while doing little to ensure public safety.



For example, it was just last week that German authorities covered up the fact that explosives were found during an attempted terror attack at a soccer stadium and told an eyewitness to keep quiet about what he saw.
“…Given that German police have been caught covering up rapes and other crimes involving migrants flooding into the country via the wave of refugees in order to not legitimize critics of the migrant influx, could the decision to cover-up the discovery of the bombs have been made under a similar justification?” Paul Joseph Watson asked.
If Belgium is truly concerned about the safety of its public officials in the face of terrorism, why doesn’t the country start by cutting down on the number of migrants it lets inside its borders?
And why doesn’t Belgium also raise an issue with the fact that NATO has been backing ISIS in its war against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad?
Those two steps alone would be 100X more effective in the fight against terrorism than flooding Twitter with cat photos.

Mystery Buyer Spends Small Fortune on Cat Painting

"My Wife's Lovers" by Carl Kahler.  (Sotheby's) - Click Pic to Enlarge

ALL 42 CATS IN THE PAINTING ARE PERSIANS AND ANGORAS

By Elizabeth Armstrong Moore,  Newser Staff


– There are cat enthusiasts and crazy cat ladies, and San Francisco art collector Kate Birdsall Johnson definitely liked her cats. The millionaire is said to have had some 350 felines at her 3,000-acre summer residence/cat ranch in Buena Vista, Calif., and invited artist Carl Kahler to do a portrait of them in the 1890s. Sotheby's originally estimated that the 227-pound, 6-by-8.5-foot painting, called "My Wife's Lovers," would fetch between $200,000 and $300,000, but a mystery buyer purchased what may now also have the distinction of being the priciest cat painting in the world for $826,000 on Tuesday.
Legend has it that Kahler, who had recently moved to California from Australia, where he'd painted racehorses, had never painted a cat before and thus spent three years doing sketches of Johnson's felines. The resulting "meowsterpiece" features 42 of them, reports the New York Post, with a critter named Sultan, whom Johnson bought for $3,000 in Paris, front and center. All the cats in the painting are Persians and Angoras, reports the CBC, each with its own name and likely painted separately, Sotheby's head of 19th-century European paintings says. "No way did 42 cats sit still to have their portrait painted," she adds. A legion of servants is said to have looked after the felines. Johnson died not long after the painting was finished. (Like looking at cats? That's OK, it's good for you.)

Poll: Is 'Cat Breading' Funny or Cruel?


Cat Breading, also known as Breading Cats , is a photo fad that involves taking pictures of cats with slices of bread placed around the neck. The name of the series is meant to be a pun for “inbred.”

Which Cats Shed the Least?

catdailynews.com

Many people like cats but they may not like the shedding that comes along with it. Some people are allergic to cats while others simply don’t like finding clumps of hair on their furniture every day.
In case you want a cat but don’t want the shedding that normally comes with it, you might be curious to know which cat breeds shed the least. The Korat from Thailand (pictured above) is one breed, which the Thais associate with good luck, probably because they don’t shed much.

    The Sixth Sense of Pets

    Coast To Coast AM - October 4, 2015 Alien Agenda in New Testament

    In the first half, George Noory welcomed integrative veterinarian Dr. Carol Osborne, who is a pioneer in anti-aging medicine and longevity research for pets. She discussed "the sixth sense" of pets, which she believes is responsible for a lot of the paranormal and psychic activities they are able to detect. This sixth sense, she suggested, may allow pets to "perceive the electromagnetic fields and the barometric changes in the Earth's atmosphere," and explain why animals have an instinctive knowledge to move to higher ground when a tsunami is imminent.

    Dogs have an incredible sense of smell that is 10,000 times greater than humans, and are currently being trained to detect diseases such as early stage cancer which gives off a slight scent. Regarding pets' abilities to find their way home after being gone for years, they might have a psychic connection with their owners, as well as iron oxide crystals in their brains that align with the Earth's poles, kind of like a magnet, she reported. Osborne also detailed cases where dogs and cats seem to be reacting to unseen entities or energies, as well as owner's reports of visitations from deceased pets, such as when they feel something swish by their leg, or nuzzle against them.

    Dinah the Alice in Wonderland Cat



    Cats seem to play such a large role in our physical world that it’s no surprise that many people love cats in the virtual world of the Internet and viral videos as well. However if you go back to 1951, you’ll see that Disney made an animated version of “Alice in Wonderland.” While Alice is the star, she also has a cat named Dinah.

    Dinah doens’t do anything but meow and follow Alice around in the beginning of the story and the end. However Dinah is loyal and friendly, and when Alice falls down the rabbit hole, Dinah stays on top and waves good-bye to her as she falls. For playing such a minor role in the story, Dinah is amazingly fun to watch anyway.

    Is Your Cat Food Made From Slave Labor?

    by
    September 7, 2015

    Responsible cat guardians religiously read cat food labels: meat as a first ingredient, corn-free, organic etc. And they’re aware of the invisible monsters in their pet’s bowl. But how many cat guardians are aware of the possible slave labor hidden in their cat’s bowl?
    Hundreds Enslaved, Beaten or Even Murdered Over Cat Food

    Nestlé S.A. is in hot water again. (This time it has nothing to do with bottling California’s water during an ongoing drought.) As reported in Bloomberg, Nestlé is accused of adding fish sourced from slave labor in their cat food.

    Under the Purina umbrella, some of Nestlé’s most popular cat foods include: Fancy Feast, Friskies, Felix, Cat Chow, One, Muse, Pro Plan and Beyond. At least one of those brands — Fancy Feast — allegedly contains fish from a Thailand supplier that uses slave labor, and four consumers are now suing Nestlé over it. The four disenchanted consumers assert that they represent all California buyers who unknowingly purchased Fancy Feast products with alleged ties to slave labor.

    Nestlé says: “Slave labor has no place in our supply chain,” but they’re working with a local NGO “to identify where and why forced labor and human rights abuses may be taking place.”

    The four plaintiffs say: They feel “tricked” into supporting such gross human violations. In a statement, Steve Berman, a lawyer representing the plaintiffs, explains:

    It’s a fact that the thousands of purchasers of its top-selling pet food products would not have bought this brand had they known the truth -– that hundreds of individuals are enslaved, beaten or even murdered in the production of its pet food.
     
    Hooked on ‘Sea Slaves’

    No one should die over producing food, but it happens every day. According to Free the Slaves, there are an estimated 21 to 36 million slaves all over the world who generate $150 billion each year. The most common forms of contemporary slavery are: labor slavery (78%), sex slavery (26%) and child slavery (22%)

    While the people producing our pet’s food are a combination of labor and child slaves, The New York Times calls them “sea slaves.” Impoverished men and boys — reports show that there are boys as young as 9 years old — commonly from Myanmar and Cambodia are bought and sold, brokered and smuggled into Thailand; they find themselves hooked in Thailand’s booming fishing industry.
    The immigrant men and boys often arrive to Thailand without speaking Thai or knowing how to swim. Some are shackled by the neck, resold at different ports and disappear on “ghost ships,” or unregistered ships. Apart from the beatings, life on these vessels is hellish: some have lost fingers in the labor, they sleep in hot, confined spaces, they eat a bowl of rice with some “throwaway fish” once a day, they spend hours in the elements and roaches and rats are common stowaways.

    While it would be easy to blame Thailand’s government, the United States is just as culpable. The United States is the biggest consumer of this “sea slave” caught fish. The average American cat eats a whopping 30 pounds of fish every year. In case you needed more proof that Americans love their cats — cats here eat double the amount of fish as an American citizen.

    Take Action!

    Fancy Feast’s current motto is: The best ingredient is love. The best thing Nestlé can do now is to ensure that slave and child labor aren’t in their products. Please sign and share this petition urging Nestlé to help end Thailand’s sea slavery.

    Petition: To Stop this nonsense of wanting to eliminate cats

    FIGHTING FOR CAT'S RIGHTS!

    A letter to All Australian embassies and government

    The Australian government, many times , have made mistakes in wanting to control animal behavior (rabbits, foxes, kangourous...).

    This time they are calling to kill all cats found outside the homes to "save other species". You never achieve to save by killing. Especially mass killing.

    People in Australian government, stop saying you like cats and start using your brain and all resources to "save these disappearing species".

    For instance, create groups of veterinaries or volunteers to feed and sterilize outdoor cats and make campaign for sterelization. This will surely help, even if it is impossible to take care of the whole cat population. They are surely other things to do

    Stop treating any animal like garbage. We want we don't want, they could do this , or not. They are living beings. Treat them with respect even if you don't like them.

    Personally, I will boycott everything Australian from now on, and never step foot on their land.

    And it's not because one defends animal rights that one is opposed to all human victims of the same macho-barbarism. We must protect the weak, all children, men & women, ederly and animals.

    Please join me in this battle.
