Mews and Nips: Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence adopts a tortie, and more
I enjoy following writer Jon Katz’s blog Bedlam Farm. He chronicles his life on a farm with dogs, barn cats, donkeys and chickens, as well as his personal journey from depression to a fully realized life. When I came across the photo above, which headed a post titled “Afternoon Meeting Topic: Humans are Dumb,” I just had to share it with you. The photo shows barn cat Minnie, along with Strut the rooster and one of his hens. The three seem to agree that animals are most definitely smarter than humans. “One day, says Minnie, when I come into money, I’ll build a no-argument, no-kill shelter for these people and let them live out their days in peace. All this worrying about money, Facebook, e-mails and chopping up wood – it’s just going to kill them.” Read the full post on BedlamFarm.com.
The news that Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence adopted a tortie made me smile. The actress was asked about her new family member on the Ellen DeGeneres show, and Ellen educated her about the fact that torties are usually female and encouarged her to adopt a companion for the adorable little kitten. Watch the full video segment on Ellentv.com. I wonder whether we’ll see the little tortie in the second Hunger Games movie?
If you missed any of the stories featured on The Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: On Monday, we explained why natural doesn’t always mean healthy when it comes to cat food, Tuesday we let you know how your cat could be a star in a video contest hosted by three top feline behaviorists, and on Wednesday we featured artist Gary Patterson.

The cat in today’s video really wants the door opened, and I guess he figures that knocking may be a more effective way to get his human’s attention!
Have a great weekend!
