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, we shed collective tears of joy over the formerly faceless kitten, met the poor lady who is afraid of cats, marveled at some realistic cat cupcakes, got an update on Oskar the blind kitten, were in disbelief over the ugliest cat Christmas sweaters, watched as shelter kitties ran on their own life-sized hamster wheel, found out what happens when you replace a Saint Bernard with a cat, picked out our favorite kitty calendars of 2012, discovered the light-up, self-tweeting cat bed of the 21st century, and fell in love with Ryoma the cosplaying cat!
Also, thanks to everyone who saw the post about the Mr. Bojangles ornament yesterday, and were inspired to go and buy one! Regina from Monster & The Squirrel stopped by my Facebook page last night to say, "Mr. Bojangles sold many ornaments today. :) Thank u everyone, the sales have helped out a lot with his medical care."
This week's featured feline is a little darling who comes to us all the way from Sydney, Australia!
His owner Sarah, the lovely lady behind The Purr Diaries, writes:
"This is little Oliver (the Second), about 8 months old now. I only had one cat, Bosco, for 6 years and had wanted another cat for a long time. Probably since I first got Bosco, actually. Having been obsessed with cats my whole life, and having surprisingly very few throughout it, the need to get another cat had been bugging my boyfriend, Dan since we first got together.
We lived in an apartment for the first two years of our relationship so I knew it wouldn't be possible then, but I managed to wear him down when he gave in and said, “When we buy a house, we can get another one.”
"Yay, victory!" I thought.
All grown up!
So imagine my surprise when on June 13th, our three year anniversary, Dan gave me the cutest cat card which read inside, "You can get another cat." I was elated! Oliver, who was adopted from a shelter, is the perfect little kitty, and he and Bosco get along well!
Now, what excuse can I use for a third kitty?...

Special thanks to Sarah for sharing the enchanting Oliver with us this week! How lucky is she to have such a great boyfriend, who got her the very best anniversary present of all? Ollie is a sweetie, and has the most beautiful eyes - I just hope his big brother Bosco doesn't get too jealous from all the extra attention!
