Feature Friday Film: Cats Enjoying the Holidays

Cats are naturally curious, so when you put up the Christmas tree, receive packages, and wrap gifts, they usually want to check things out. Here are some videos of cats getting into the holiday spirit (and everything else). I’ve also included my cats, Harry, Hermione, and Stripey opening their cat advent calendar doors.

Feature Friday Film: Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day

Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day Logo designed by Deb Barnes

Today, August 28, is a very special day. Deb Barnes, Debbie’s friend and the president of the Cat Writers’ Association, created it to honor her Ragdoll cat, Mr. Jazz, after he crossed the bridge and for others to honor their beloved pets who are no longer with them.

Here’s an article and a video that explains what this day is all about. I’ve also included some photos of Debbie’s cats, Oliver and Floppy, who are on the bridge and two of Debbie’s books, The Path to Rainbow Bridge and Cloudy Rainbow, that deal with the loss of beloved pets.

Feature Friday Film: Fourth of July Cats

Tomorrow is the Fourth of July here in the U.S. We cats, even us character cats, don’t enjoy this holiday much. It’s noisy and hurts our ears. Here are some videos with tips to help your cat keep calm during the celebration and also a special slideshow patriotic tribute featuring bloggers’ cats in their red, white, and blues. Have a safe and “paw”some Fourth!
