Coming Soon: Better Quality Pictures!

Today, my dad told me I could borrow his Nikon camera! I am super excited. To anyone who has seen my blog sometimes it is very obvious that my pictures aren't professionally done but with a DSi to work with I am doing the best I can. With the new camera to use you'll probably be able to notice the difference between my DSi photos and the Nikon ones. I am not complaining though, I like using the DSi it does a lot of great stuff and I heavily rely on it for everyday use. I will probably be able to start using it tomorrow and hopefully the cats will work with me. It's going to be interesting so get ready!

Cat Breed of the Month: The Scottish Fold

Today when I was at the dentist awaiting the horror of metal tools and tooth torture. I was trying to come up with something new for my blog. Something that would spark interest in cat lovers everywhere. That is when I decided to do the Cat Breed of the Month segment! In Cat Fancy they talk in detail about a different cat breed every issue. So I thought why not do that to? This issue's cat breed is the Scottish Fold! So get ready for lots of fun facts about this adorable cat!
Name: Scottish Fold

Alternate Names: Scott Fold or Scottish Lop

Origin: Scotland

Weight: 6 to 12 pounds

Temperament: This is a very sweet-tempered and sociable cat who is very adaptable. This cat is great with children and other pets. This cat has a medium activity level.

Special Features: Ears are laid back against the head due to a bone mutation.

Description: The Scottish Fold has a very rounded appearance. Medium sized, round head with a  short neck, and large eyes. Some of the breed's ears merely bend forward while others are completely folded and laid back. They also has a long fluffy tail. The eye color should complement the coat.

Coat: Comes in a variety of colors and patterns, most types allowed in CFA competitions. They come in long or short hair and have a very soft coat. For short hair Folds they should be brushed at least once a week and three to four times a week for the long hair Folds to prevent matting.

History: The first Scottish Fold was born in a town 13 miles from the Scottish city of Perth. The first Fold was a white female, named Susie, who was born to a normal litter of kittens. It's quite certain that the mutation was a spontaneous natural one. In 1963 she gave birth to four kittens two of them had the folded ears like their mother. William Ross and his wife Mary, who were interested in cat breeding were able to take one of the kittens who was white like his mom, whom they named Snooks. One of Snooks's desendants, Snowdrift, was given to Pat Turner who was a professional breeder in London by the Ross Family. When British officials declined to accept the breed because of its mutation several were sent to the U.S. and the breed has strived ever since.

Question of the Day!
What do you think about the Scottish Fold, would this cat fit in to your houshold well?

Sample Text from Book:
Q: Why do humans seem annoyed when you jump in the box after they've just scooped it?
A: Humans are selfish. They like to play in the litter and then expect you not to use it as intended. You'd think they'd have better things to do and better places to do it in than where you go to the bathroom. (Page 68).

Summary: Are you a cat wanting to have some fun? Are you bored of daily life? Do you want to do more than eat and nap? Do you want to learn more about eating and napping? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then you have found the right book! The Devious Book for Cats has everything from how to snatch food to how to wake up a sleeping person. This book gives you answers to all your litter box questions and teaches you the
secrets of cat dare devils, and much much more!

Cat Critic's Thoughts: I think this book is hilarious! This is probably the funniest cat book I have ever read. This book gives us humans an insight on the life and thoughts of cats, accompanied by great illustrations this book is great for people of all ages. The material in this book is fresh and fun and perfect for anyone wanting a light and easy read.

News: Cats Escape Burning Building

     Hi guys. I have decided to start a new segment on my blog. It is on news about cats. I know you are probably thinking that there isn't much going on but that's not true! A lot is actually going on! I don't know how good this segment will be and if it will last but I will give it a try! This is my first timje as a commentator so bear with me! Hope you enjoy!

   In Tennessee today, three cats were killed in a fire in a residential home. Although the homeowners escaped uninjured the cats could not be rescued. My heart goes out to those poor kitties. Meanwhile in Shamokin (no clue where that is either) a resident's house also suffered from a fire. The 55 year old man made it out alive, and fire fighters were able to save his two cats from the smoke and flames. If my house were on fire the first thing I would try to do is rescue all my pets and family, grant it I hope there is no fire so that I don't have to prove it but if there is I will try my best!

Meanwhile wildlife charities are tracking the movements of the Amur Tiger and Amur Leopard, which are the most endangered animals in all of Eastern Russia. The Wildlife Vets International  Charity hopes to help these endangered animals find safe ground.

And finally in Cortland six cats were removed from an apartment after complaints against the tenant were filed, the animals were living in poor condition and were injured. I hope that whoever hurts these animals gets severly punished for their actions. Animals have feelings too! They should be treated with care and love!

Well that is all for today hope this news gives you an inside look on how much goes on in the world of cats! I probably will not be posting anything tomorrow since it is Christmas Eve. So I hope you all have a great Christmas. Happy Holidays to all and to all a good night!

Cats and School

                      Hi guys! I know it has been a while since I lasted posted and I am sorry. This is exam week and I have been studying super hard. So please forgive me for not posting stuff! I have a 100 question math exam tomorrow so I have to make this short... This is a trailer I found for a Korean movie called The Cat! It has one of my fav. actors in it from City Hunter (Park Min Yeoung). Apparently from the description the main character (Min Yeoung) runs a cat grooming shop when one day one of her clients dies on the elevator and her cat is the only one that can tell the tale! I bet there were some clowns involved. The perfect combo cats and korean entertainment! Hope you enjoy!
