From the time that he worked in a shelter in Boulder in the 1990’s to starring in Animal Planet’s hit show My Cat from Hell for the last six years, Jackson Galaxy has dedicated his life to the well being of cats and their humans.

Lisa Turner adopted 8-year-old Hubble earlier this summer. Hubble is a tripod. He had hiis right hind leg amputated as a kitten after it was crushed, most likely by a car.

Allegra and Ruby love their Neko Flies toys. The toys are developed and created by Ellen Tsuyuki, a multiple cat owner who was dissatisfied with toys available in the cat toy marketplace.

All of the Neko Flies attachments mimic critters cats might encounter in the wild – and let me tell you, the likeness to the real thing is almost a bit much for someone like me who is not at all fond of critters that crawl and fly!

I have a bit of a love hate relationship with fall: I enjoy the beautiful colors of autumn all around me, but I also can’t help but think about what comes afterwards. I’m a summer girl, as are Allegra and Ruby: we thrive on warm weather and sun light.

There’s no question that cats enrich our lives in so many different ways. They’re family members, constant companions, they cheer us up when we’re feeling down and, as science has shown us, they even have healing powers. The bond between cat and human can often be deeper than any connection we may feel with other humans. In Buddism for Pet Lovers: Supporting Our Closest Companions Through Life and Death, David Michie explores this close connection between us and our animal companions. Continue reading…
