Game of Paws

I swear, I pressed ‘Publish’ instead of ‘Draft’ and changed it back to ‘Draft’ within 10 seconds, and yet the half written post still ended up in our RSS feed. Pretty rabid of the news feed don’t you think? Like, can you give us a second? How irritating. Anyway, as I was trying to say, […]

How Can You Tell When It’s Springtime?

Since the beginning of time, man has searched for a way to determine if Spring had really arrived. Finally, there’s an accurate metric to determine just that thing. That’s right: When you see a cat in the alley, Spring has arrived. Yep. Cats are the new Groundhogs. Come on, isn’t it obvious that it’s springtime? […]

Maja the Finnish Tree Cat

Hello fellow cat lovers. Ziva here, filling in for Mike while he’s off lollygagging somewhere. It’s a little known fact, but when faced with the harsh reality of the snowy Finnish winter, the fur of the domestic cat, much like that of the Arctic fox, will turn bright white. This pretty black cat belongs to […]

Curiosity Didn’t Kill the Cat

That’s right. Curiosity kept him occupied so that I could take some photos! Finally, a cat that stays still for more than 2 seconds. I know, I know, I need to get a proper camera already. I should do a special post featuring just blurred pictures of cats because I have a phone full of […]

Cat Versus Squirrel

It’s a cat chasing a squirrel, but is any description really needed for this one? There we were just minding our own business when suddenly, we spot a plump cat in the park. But, he’s too preoccupied with that tree rodent to notice us. So we watch… They face off for a few seconds…and then […]

Orange Cat Tail Speak

I’m trying to get better at reading cat body language, and especially via cat tail speak, which is where cats keep all of their secret powers. The bigger the tail, the more power, although even cats with short tails have certain advantages. It’s just harder to figure out what they’re trying to say. Which brings […]

You Can Run

You can run, but you can’t hide. She thought she was camouflaged by the leaves and the sun, but no. Think again, because the camera wins! Let’s take a closer look: Enhance! ENHANCE!

cat scratching on bricks

Heated Windowsill

The rest of the street was cast in shadow so the sunny windowsill was the most logical place to hang out. Then it was time for some bad ass posturing from his high vantage point: Then it was like Scratch Fest 2012 as he went to town getting right to source of that itch. Aw […]

cute cat comes out of hiding

How Not To Hide

This cat saw me from half way down the alley, looked at me with fear in his eyes and hid in the lamest way possible. Hide and seek is definitely not one of this kitty’s skills. Need to work on that one a bit. Thankfully, I was totally able to use my cat whispering skills […]

grey tabby walks away

Suburban Tabby

A Sunday drive took us way out into the hinterland of Laval, Qc.: a land of strip malls and bungalows that seem to march on their own, swallowing up acres of fields and forests in the blink of an eye. The great thing about cats though, is that they don’t care about any of that […]
