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, the nation prepared to fall into a cute coma has Hallmark Channel announced Kitten Bowl 2014, Eidé Magazine presented "The Cat Issue", The Cake Mom & Co. shared their awesomely adorable Pusheen the Cat birthday cake, Forever 21 went cat fashion crazy for spring, Taylor Swift's Keds collection included cat inspired sneakers, Brittany serenaded Lord Tubbington on Glee, Simon's Cat released a new video (and Charlie reviewed his new book), and "Ridiculously Happy Cat" hoped that you had a purrfectly wonderful week!
This week's featured felines make their home all the way in Australia, where their owners run a boutique cattery (cat motel)!
This is one of our cats ZaZa, an Oriental. He's the first cat I've ever chosen, before that I was always adopted by cats. He's a beautiful Egyptian looking cat and he's very demanding but worth all the trouble. He plays fetch for hours on end with little toy mice. He's only allowed out on a harness due to lack of common sense, and our fear of snakes.
We also have a Ragdoll, Brooky, that we adopted because a customer of our cat motel was going to put him down because "she had to travel for six months and couldn't afford boarding".
At the time we had two, 20-year-old girl cats, and I thought they wouldn't accept him, but they did. He's a beautiful natured cat that was unlucky and had three owners before finding a permanent home with us. In this photo his coat is half grown. We live in a subtropical area of Australia and he gets too hot in summer so we clip him at the beginning of December. He is a loner and barely tolerates Za.
Special thanks to Claudia for sharing gorgeous ZaZa and Brooky with us this week! If you'd like to learn more about Aylesham Cattery, visit their website here.
