As we’re watching the recovery efforts following hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, it has hopefully made all of us think about the importance of having an emergency plan for us and our cats. It probably also made us wonder how we would fare if we had to cope with of these disasters. Earlier this week, award winning author Deborah Barnes shared her experience of going through Irma with her seven cats. Her account of what it was like affected me deeply, and I want to share it with you today. Click here to read her story.
If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on Monday, Dr. Kris answered last month’s questions, on Tuesday, we showed you some adorable wool fairy houses for cats, on Wednesday, we explored the issue of who gets custody of the cat during a divorce, on Thursday, we introduced you to Tabcat, a new device that can help you keep track of your cat, and on Friday, we reviewed Sandy Lerner’s gorgeous book Caticons: 4,000 Years of Art Imitating Cats.
The sweetness in today’s video just makes me happy – enjoy!
Have a great weekend!
