Diners at Martha’s Kitchen in Moreno Valley, California, were distraught to hear what they believed to be a kitten crying from a drainpipe in front of the restaurant. Restaurant staff immediately called animal services. Unfortunately, Animal services didn’t have the tools to help this poor kitty, so they reached out to AAP Home Services, who immediately dispatched three of their top professionals.
This kitten cried out for help - thankfully AAP Home Services stepped up to assist on this rescue.
In a situation like this, time is of the essence and AAP Home Services cares about animals and doing the job right the first time. To find the kitten, the plumping professionals used a state-of-the-art sewer camera system and electronic line tracing device in order to locate the kitten about 55 feet from the building. She was located under a concrete walkway in a narrow section of pipe.
When the cats came to me and asked to help write a poem for their dad, I was skeptical. The triplets are well known for their pranks, and I thought right away that the only truly heartfelt poem would be from The Cog.
But, I gave them the benefit of the doubt and I'm glad I did. I think this poem turned out quite well, considering we had so many contributors!
So this is for my husband, the best cat dad (and husband) in the world! He makes every day special - for me and the animals!
Working in an office environment creates a lot of stress, especially for those who often prefer the company of animals. To help counteract the stress, the Doña Ana County Office in Las Cruces, New Mexico, devised a genius solution by creating a cat library.
The cat library, started in 2012, allows city employees to “check out” a kitten during office hours. The kitten is allowed to return to work with the person. The program is designed not only to help cats find furever homes, but to give employees a chance to relax, escape the monotony of the daily office grind and with luck, get kittens into homes.
The program has been a rave success with hundreds of kittens adopted into loving homes since 2012.
CBS News profiled the program, speaking with community planner Angela Roberson. "It definitely relieves stress," Roberson said. "I mean how can it not when you have a little fuzzy thing that you can take back to your office?"
I’ve just returned from Blogpaws and the first thing I noticed when my cats unpacked my bags is that all of the catnip toys are missing. In their place was a little note from TSA saying that they, “...inspected my bag”.
What they should have written is:“Travel safe - and thanks for all the catnip”.
It makes me wonder what goes on in the shadowy depths of the terminal... Is there a scent dog trained to sniff out catnip? Is it a closet cat lover who searches bags on the hunt for catnip, Valerian Root and Silver Vine?
Maybe one of the many cats who the airlines have lost during transport are carefully sorting through the bags, removing the ones they most love - maybe these lost cats now live high in the rafters of the terminals and stockpile little catnip toys for their cold nights. (That’s actually a thought that makes me happy).
Regardless, my airline catnip problems have been going on for years...
As you all know, we're big fans of feline design (also known as "catification"). This is a story that merges not only a household, but some creative design from Mountain Cat Trees!
When Eliza and Tiffany bought a home together in early 2014, they had to merge households. Eliza brought in her four cats (Agnes, Monkey, Judd and Naked) and a dog called Nora. Tiffany brought along her cats, Encore and Pluto, as well as her two dogs, Nova and Bebe.
That's a big menagerie in anyone's book. Needless to say, the couple was concerned about how this “Brady Bunch” of animals would get along. They enlisted Mountain Cat Trees, makers of highest-quality, natural wood cat trees, scratching posts and cat shelves to help “catify” the new house to make it easier for animals and people to make the transition (read Mountain Cat Trees Inspire Felines to learn about their beautiful products!)
Today, we're going to show you an entire gallery of their beautiful home and show you how simple it is to create your own home designs.
