Mews and Nips: Tortie Rescued from Drain Pipe


A family on a camping trip in Washington State found a small tortie inside a drain pipe along the side of the road. They brought the emaciated cat to their RV and took her home after the weekend. A few days later, Caci the tortie gave birth to six kittens. The babies needed to be bottlefed initially, but as Caci became stronger, she was able to nurse the kittens.

Happy Halloween


Allegra and I would like to wish you and your kitties a safe and happy Halloween!

This Halloween will be very different from anything we’ve ever experienced before, but I promised Allegra that she’d have some treats in her little bag at the end of the day.

And even though there may not be trick or treaters this year, which eliminates the chances of cats dashing out open doors, please be mindful of some of the other hazards of the holiday, such as decorations, electrical cords and candles. Click here for our Halloween safety tips.

Mews and Nips will return next Saturday.

Sleepypod Air Winners


Congratulations, Angela Gosselin and Jody A. Vernay! You’re the winners of our Sleepypod Air giveaway.

If you’re wondering why there are two winners – well, it’s because I messed up. I prematurely picked our first winner early in the week before the giveaway had expired, because i thought we were already a week ahead. I’m chalking it up to pandemic brain. I had already notified our first winner, and I really didn’t want to have to tell her “oops, sorry, just kidding!” Thankfully, the wonderful folks at Sleepypod told me not to worry, they would just offer up a second carrier so that the giveaway could run all the way to its scheduled end!

Angela and Jody, look for an email from Ingrid*.
