Welcome back for a special Cinco de Mayo edition of Caturday, where we catch up on the week's latest cat news, and get to meet some of your amazing kitties! So pour yourself an XL margarita (prepared by this guy, perhaps?), and grab some chips & guac, because we're about to have ourselves a Caturday fiesta!
This week, Snooki defended her cats against Twitter haters, Anderson Cooper met 40 lb. Meow, Cee Lo Green and Purrfect the Cat reinvented the Meow Mix jingle, an Iranian special needs cat got a second chance at life in the U.S., Temptations caused an online feline frenzy with KittyCat Hijack, I caught up with my furry friends at Tabby's Place, Maid of Clay wowed us with her innovative Knitty Kitty yarn bowls, and Around the World in 80 Cats took us to "Cat City," home of Malaysia's famous Kuching Cat Museum.
Also, don't forget to throw your name into the hat for a chance to win a hilariously adorable set of Angry Cat Note Cards from Funky Chic Designs! Click here to enter!
Noreen and Doris
This week's featured felines are a stunning mother and daughter duo who come to us from Lauren, who writes:
Noreen is the chocolate/champagne Burmese, and Doris (the brown Tortie Burmese) is her daughter. They are the friendliest cats you could ever meet, and they love to be cuddled and to sleep in bed with you at night. Doris has three legs as she unfortunately lost the feeling in one of her front legs after an accident (no-one knows what happened), and therefore it had to be removed. She does however cope really well and is still her lovely, bubbly self.
Playing hide and seek with Doris who was hiding in our moving boxes. She has a very loud 'Meow' on her.

Special thanks to Lauren for sharing her affectionate felines with us this week. It's nothing but love for this mama and her kitty, and every day is a family affair!
