Mews and Nips: Tortie Rules Piggy Paradise at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary


When a tortoiseshell cat wandered onto the grounds of Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, UT, staff had her spayed and examined and then encouraged Kitty Kitty Meow Meow to stay inside and live with other cats and humans, but the determined tortie had other ideas. Every time she was taken indoors, she escaped as soon as she could, and made her way to Piggy Paradise, where Best Friends keeps rescued potbellied pigs. The Queen of Piggy Paradise, as she is often called, has been living with ruling over her porcine pals for several years.

If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on Sunday, we discussed whether cats make New Year’s resolutions, on Monday, we shared 6 healthy habits to make 2016 a happy year for your cats, on Tuesday, we let you know that the folks at Pet Tree Houses are offering a 15% discount on all of their fabuluos cat trees for Conscious Cat readers, on Wednesday, we shared information from a UC Davis study that found that torties and calicos are “more challenging” than cats of other colors, on Thursday, we shared some numbers from our annual report with you (complete with commentary from Allegra and Ruby,) and on Friday, we featured a purrfect pair of books.

Today’s video of a kitty waking her guardian just melted my heart. Enjoy!

Have a great weekend!

    Very very cute story, but I hope every effort was made by BFAS to find her owner.
