Do you remember connect the dots puzzles? I used to love them as a child. There was something magical about a page full of dots revealing an actual image. Where’s Kitty? Dot-to-Dot is putting a feline spin on this concept.

I was excited to take a trip down memory lane to give some of the thirty puzzles in the book a try, but alas, my eye sight clearly isn’t what it was as a child. Even with reading glasses, I found that my eyes became strained pretty quickly, and while the time I did spend on one puzzle immediately brought back wonderful memories of doing these puzzles on the table in my mom’s kitchen while she prepared meals, I just couldn’t stick with it long enough to finish an image.

Each puzzle features more than 500 numbered dots, and you’ll find Kitty in each of the images featuring famous locations from around the world, including the Empire State Building, Taj Mahal, and Big Ben. A reviewer on Amazon, who had the same issues with the size of the numbers as I did, posted images of completed puzzles that led me back to her blog, Feeling Fictional, including the one below.

I love the idea of this book – I only wish the dots and numbers weren’t quite so small.

Where’s Kitty? Dot-to-Dot is available from Amazon.

High Sided Litter Boxes Keep the Mess Inside

When I adopted Ruby seven years ago, I didn’t realize that I would be embarking on the search for the perfect litter box. Ruby is a vertical pee-er. She doesn’t spray. Spraying is usually done by male cats. When a cat sprays, he stands up, typically makes a treading motion with his back feet, quivers his tail and sprays urine onto a vertical surface such as a wall. Spraying is a marking behavior. Continue reading…

Common Feline Eye Problems

feline-eye-problems

While cats don’t have as many eye problems as dogs, feline eye issues tend to be chronic and frequently require a lifetime of care. Detecting problems early can make treatment more effective.

Healthy cat eyes should be clear and bright. The pupils should be of equal size, and the area around the eyeball should be white. Any changes in the eye’s appearance or the area around the eye can be an indicator of a health problem. Continue reading…

A Visit With Samantha Martin and the Amazing Acro-Cats

I first met Samantha Martin two years ago, when she came through the Washington DC area with her Amazing Acro-Cats. I had been skeptical then. I’m well aware of the controversy that surrounds circus performances, but after talking to Samantha for almost an hour and watching her with her cats, I was able to put any misgivings aside. From the moment I met Samantha, I knew that I had encountered a kindred spirit. Samantha is passionate about cats and their well-being. She knew from the time that she was ten years old that she wanted to work with animals. A renowned animal trainer with a degree in animal husbandry and studies in animal behavioral sciences, Samantha has worked with all sorts of animals, from rats to chickens to groundhogs.

Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty… On a Toast Cat Bed

You may remember the “breading cats” meme featuring photos of cats’ heads encased in a slice of bread  from a few years ago. My sense of humor must not be mainstream, because I found nothing funny about putting cats through having a slice of bread stuck around their necks. But when I came across this cat bed shaped like a slice of toast, it made me smile. If you love quirky pieces in your living space, this bed is for you. Continue reading…
