Something amazing is happening at a county government in Southern New Mexico all because of a genius idea that several office workers came up with one day!
It all started when they wanted to come up with a way to help rescue cats and it’s turned into something truly amazing! They decided to create a ‘cat library’ where office members and others can come and visit the kitties. They are even allowed to take them back to their desk and play with the kitties.
“My work has a ‘cat library’. You can ‘check out’ a cat to take back to your desk for an hour. The (ginger) kitties are the newest additions to the ‘library’!”
Reddit user _GoldGuy_ shared a story we all wish happened to ourselves: his cat made friends with a chipmunk and they became cuddle buddies. Sounds impossible? Well, it took some bravery from the little chipmunk, since his species and kittens don’t get along often but these sure do.
Of course, at first the chipmunk seemed scared but when it notices the cat meant no harm to him, he slowly approached and seeing how the kitten was chilling, he cuddled on top of his holy fluffiness. As simple as that: cuddle friendship born.
Before Princess the cat became paralyzed, she gave birth to a litter of five kittens in a yard where she had been getting food from. The kittens are her everything.
But her world turned upside down, when she entered another yard where she was faced with brutality, and it left her paralyzed.
Her determination to care for her babies kept her alive, and she dragged herself back to the place where she left her babies.
When Richard East from Tasmania quit his job and sold his house two years ago to travel all over Australia, he made sure to bring only the basic necessities – including, of course, his cat.
In 2014, East grew tired of corporate work after slaving away for ten years, so he resigned and started living in a campervan.
Since then, he and his feline travel buddy Willow have been to places like the Great Barrier Reef, the Big Banana, and the Whitsunday Islands.
According to East, he got Willow from his ex-girlfriend, who adopted the cat from the Hobart Cat Centre.
Nowadays, he and his beloved pet live the simple life on the road. Willow takes naps during long drives, and when they arrive at a new destination, they go on walks (with the kitty on a leash, of course). At times, they even meet other travelers and their cats!
“Every night there are hundreds of little cats tucked into bed in camper vans across Australia,” East toldBuzzFeed. “People are often surprised that a cat can be a travel companion but they are probably easier to travel with than dogs as they don’t require as much attention.”
College can be stressful. The number of exams, projects and homework assignments is often overwhelming for students and leaves many wondering how they will ever find the time to complete it all. Students are constantly under pressure to perform well in their studies because their grades will determine which careers they will qualify for or whether or not their scores are competitive enough to land them in a graduate school program.
Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way for students to relax and de-stress? Drugs and alcohol are one method that might be explored, but the students at the University of Augsburg have an alternative stress reliever that is absolutely purrfect.
A ginger feline, known around the school as Campus Cat, has been comforting students and faculty for years. Without any formal training, the cat will walk up to an unsuspecting student and demand affection, which is instantaneously given.
This isn’t a stray cat, like you’d expect. He does have a home. He’s simply an adorable creature that enjoys giving and receiving love.
Most cat owners assume their cats go little to nowhere during the night, many say their cat just sleeps at the end of their bed. Think again. Many cats are traveling as much as 1.8 miles during the night and returning home before you ever wake up.
One cat owner that participated in the study said, “I thought Semi particularly would be just local — bottom of the garden or next door’s yard.
1. Acknowldge that I am Cat – no other is above Me. Not even you. I am the Lord of thy house.
2. Thou shall have no other pets before me.
3. Thou shalt not ever ignore me.
4. My affection is mine to dole out, it cannot be forced. Don’t try.
5. The fur I shed is my gift to you, so I am with you wherever you go. It is not my fault when you choose garments that do not match my fur color.
6. Remember my food dish and keep it full.
7. I have a mind of my own. Please do not be upset if I like the packaging better than the expensive toy you just bought me, or the bag your brought it home in. Just be grateful I like something.
8. Thou shalt always have thy lap ready for me to curl up in.
9. Thou shalt shower me with love and attention upon demand.
10. Above all, thou shalt do anything and everything it takes to keep me happy.
