If you’ve seen some my photos from BlogPaws, you’ve probably seen me hold a little grey blind kitten in a few of them. Odilia captured the hearts of many BlogPaws attendees, and I thought you’d like to hear more about her. Connie of Tails from the Foster Kittens brought little Odilia to BlogPaws all the way from Maine. Connie had very little information about Odilia when she rescued her from a shelter. Read Odilia’s Story to learn more about this special little girl.
It’s impossible to wrap your mind around the devastation in the wake of the Oklahoma tornadoes. Agencies from around the country are jumping in to help with rescue and recovery efforts. Vetstreet has compiled a list of organizations that are helping animals affected by the disaster by bringing in search dogs, donating food and supplies, and reuniting lost pets with their guardians. Hopefully, as a result of their hard work, and generous donations, we’ll see more happy endings like the one in the photo above of a woman who found her cat standing on the rubble of her destroyed home, as reported by Life with Cats.
If you missed any of the stories featured on The Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: On Monday, we told you everything you need to know about feline hyperthyroidism, on Tuesday, we emphasized the importance of playtime for cats, on Wednesday we featured our BlogPaws recap, and told you about Allegra and Ruby’s special visitor, and on Friday we reviewed Lorraine Bartlett’s One Hot Murder. And don’t forget to enter our giveaway of a Catit Interactive Play Circuit.
Today’s video is from the sublimely bizarre files. A cat in a shark suit riding on a Roomba, being chased by a duck? Go figure.
Have a great weekend!
