Mews and Nips: Kitten Rescued from Florida Beach is Looking for Her Forever Home


Our friend Dorian Wagner, who you may know as the owner of Cat Lady Box, has been involved in cat rescue for decades. I’ve always admired her big heart when it comes to helping cats who can’t help themselves. She once again came through for a grey kitten, now named Purradise Bleu, rescued from a South Florida beach. She first noticed the kitten under the stairs of a restaurant. Bleu was friendly and played with Dorian, but wouldn’t let herself be caught. It took eight days and two traps, but Dorian and a friend were finally able to trap the little kitten. Bleu hung out in Dorian’s bathroom for a few hours before her foster mom could pick her up, and she turned out to be a total lovebug. Bleu is available for adoption in South Florida through Good Karma Pet Rescue. For more about this wonderful rescue story, read Dorian’s account on Facebook.

When Cats Refuse to Take Pills

This post contains affiliate links*

When it comes to giving pills to pets, dog parents tend to have it easier. Put the pill in a little bit of peanut butter or cheese, and most dogs will think they’re getting a treat and wont’ even notice the pill. When it comes to cats, it’s usually not quite that simple. Rumor has it there are some cats who will allow their owners to pill them easily, but if my personal experience and that with veterinary clients is any indication, they’re few and far between.
