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, two social media savvy siblings turned 100k Facebook likes into a kitty of their very own, Yankee Candle captured the essence of kitten whiskers in candle form, Nerissa's Life contributed candy-topped cat cupcakes to help benefit a local shelter, a Swedish insurance company set skydiving felines to R. Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly", Priscilla tested out a handmade ceramic thirsty cat fountain, Sanrio and Forever 21 collaborated to create the Hello Kitty Forever collection, and we cried happy tears over Cheeto the kitten's road from rescue to recovery.
Elsewhere, there's still time to enter for your chance to win a cat calendar by The Oatmeal (How to tell if your cat is plotting to kill you), I Can Has Cheezburger?, or Awkward Family Photos: Pet Edition! I'm drawing three lucky winners this coming Wed. 11/21!
Kitty getting in the holiday spirit!
This week's featured feline turned her mama from someone who didn't like cats very much, into a lady who submits her kitty to be featured in a Caturday post!
I never liked cats until January 2009 when a cat showed up out of nowhere with four babies, and I fell in love with the tuxedo kitten. The mother took off with the others, but I ended up keeping Kitty. At first I was very ignorant and thought she was a boy and named him Sylvester, but my daughter pointed out that Sylvester was actually a girl, so her name became Kitty! My Fat Baby Kitty will be 4-years-old this coming January. Needless to say, I LOVE her!!
Special thanks to Maria for sharing her pretty Kitty with us this week!
