It's Caturday!

Welcome back for another edition of Caturday, where we catch up on the week's latest cat news, and get to meet some of your amazing kitties!

This week brought us glorious cat naps, expensive cat sculptures, silly cat songs, indie cat actors, modern cat fashions, bully cat translations, and last but not least, parody cat advertising for Hissey Miyake, Catfish Dior, Scratch Watch, and more!

I also want to thank everyone for the wonderful comments they left on my post about meeting with Animal Communicator Sonya Fitzpatrick, and to those who commented on the "Tripping Hazard" cat ID tag post from yesterday too, because they gave me a good laugh!

Also, don't forget I have a fantastic giveaway going on right now for a Kittypod Geodome cardboard habitat from H.J. Mews! You have until this Tuesday, September 6th to get your entry in, so click HERE for all the details!

Tinky and JazzSpur

This week's feature feline comes to us from Terri in Ohio, who writes in about her feisty cat Tinky, who's been keeping everyone in check (horses, cats, and people, alike) at the racetrack where she works, for the past 13 years!

Terri writes:

This is Tinky. She is discussing the morning events with JazzSpur. He is a (trotter) harness race horse. 'Tink' was born at Northfield Park Racetrack 12 or 13 years ago. She is without a doubt the boss of the barn. She still runs unwanted (at least in her estimation) cats out of HER barn, climbs up to the rafters and cuts across to the other side of the barn, and successfully hunts birds, bugs, and mice!

Oh yeah - almost forgot - when one of the horses irritates her she has NO PROBLEM at all to stand up and box their nose! LOL!

Special thanks to Terri for sharing Tinky's tale with us this week! There's nothing like a beautiful, independent ladycat who's ready to defend her territory and throw a few punches when the going gets tough!

p.s. Happy Labor Day! I hope everyone has a great holiday weekend, and that all of the kitties are able to catch their last window whiffies of summer!

Tinky sounds very brave to punch the horses! She's got powerful lasers, too :-) It must be fun to work with horses at a racetrack.
I hope everyone Happy Caturday!!

Well, somebody has to be boss. Why not Tinky? Cats are naturally bossy, you know.
Happy Labor Day! Great story.
