Nora played live on the Today Show!  I wrote about Nora a while back (click here to read about the Feline Mozart!).   In an interview with Nora's owners Betsy Alexander and Burnell Yow, we learn that she is "a little bit of a diva" who will only play the piano in her own home.

Is Advertising on Cats Exploitation?

Vote!

 

Talk about exploitation:

Warner Bros has revealed that it plans to advertise its forthcoming shooter, F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin, via a clowder of black cats roaming the streets of London on the game's launch day on Friday 13th. Branded a 'cat-vertising campaign', the scheme will see the specially trained black moggies sporting F.E.A.R. 2 cat clothing. The idea, according to Warner Bros, is that the creepy kitties will 'capture the attention of superstitious passers-by,' as Friday 13th is famous for its supposed bad luck and a black cat crossing your path was listed at number 5 in a recent survey of Britain's superstitions and signs of bad luck."

This is going down on this Friday the 13th!  I think that this further perpetuates the myth of the black cat!!!  :(  Does this help or hurt cats in society?

"Shamelessly branded a ‘cat-vertising campaign’, the scheme will see the specially trained black moggies sporting F.E.A.R. 2 cat clothing, and then roaming the streets of London. The idea, according to Warner Bros, is that the creepy kitties will ‘capture the attention of superstitious passers-by,’ as Friday 13 is famous for its supposed bad luck and a black cat crossing your path was listed at number 5 in a recent survey of Britain’s superstitions and signs of bad luck. Friday 13 was listed at number 3, while breaking a mirror was listed as the number 1."

Poor Little Cat

Sunday, 25 January 2009 18:31

MSNBC had a story about a little boy that shot a poor cat in the head with an arrow:

 

BOISE -- A 12-year-old Caldwell boy has come forward to claim responsibility for the arrow found lodged in the head of a cat.Prosecutors will decide whether the boy should be charged with animal cruelty.The boy and his father told the Gem County Sheriff's Office he was protecting quail, but the question many are asking tonight is - does intention matter?Gem County officials tell us that it is illegal to shoot at pets with a bow and arrow any time. But some are making the argument that this was a stray cat.Jeff Rosenthal with the Idaho Humane Society says that does not matter."There's a feeling at least that this is something malicious and cruel," said Rosenthal.A nine-month-old cat, now named Valentine, is recovering after a major surgery to remove an arrow from her head.This interview came an hour before Wednesday's surgery."I think the arrow went through the eye and came out the back of the head," said Jeff Brourman who performed the surgery on Valentine.A scan of the cat's head shows the arrow missed the brain by millimeters, but destroyed the left ear and eye.(Related:Sheriff says 12-year-old boy shot cat in head with arrow)"In a case like this we have to be concerned that this is something that is done purposefully," said Brourman.Hours after this story was brought to the public's attention, the Gem County Sheriff's Office said that a 12 year-old neighbor of the person who brought the cat in claimed responsibility.We went to their home Thursday, but they declined to comment.Since Valentine is a stray, the closest thing to an owner would be the person who took the cat to West Vet.That person said they would not press charges on the boy because they believe he is sorry for what he did and that this was an accident.Jeff Rosenthal with the Idaho Humane Society disagrees."I don’t think it was accidental, I think the shot itself where it hit was, that part of it, I'm sure no one was that accurate, but I believe the child was intending to harm the cat sure," said Rosenthal.We spoke with a lieutenant from Gem County Sheriff's Office just moments after he questioned the family and he said he has everything he needs to file his report. He'll turn it over to the prosecutor to decide whether to file charges. That decision likely won't be made until next week."Because it was a child there’s more of a, oh it’s a child out being mischievous, made a mistake.  I still think it’s important to make an impact on that child. Make sure we don’t have anything else going on with the child as well," said Rosenthal.Valentine will spend the night recovering from surgery, and then the plan is for Simply Cats, an all cat shelter, to come and pick her up and get her well enough to be adopted.Simply Cats executive director Sheri Schneider tells us that around 75 people have shown interest in adopting the cat when she's ready.Schneider says they will most likely hold a lottery to determine Valentine's new owner.Rosenthal says the Humane Society maintains a toll-free animal cruelty and neglect hotline for people to report cases of animal cruelty, neglect or animal fighting.Anyone with information on these forms of abuse is urged to call 1-866-430-9432.

Very Sad News... CatWoman, Singer, Dancer, Eartha Kitt dies Christmas Day.

Thursday, 25 December 2008 2:46

NEW YORK (AP) — Eartha Kitt, a sultry singer, dancer and actress who rose from South Carolina cotton fields to become an international symbol of elegance and sensuality, has died, a family spokesman said. She was 81.

Andrew Freedman said Kitt, who was recently treated at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, died Thursday in Connecticut of colon cancer.

Kitt, a self-proclaimed "sex kitten" famous for her catlike purr, was one of America's most versatile performers, winning two Emmys and nabbing a third nomination. She also was nominated for several Tonys and two Grammys.

Once dubbed the "most exciting woman in the world" by Orson Welles, she spent much of her life single, though brief romances with the rich and famous peppered her younger years.

Her first album, "RCA Victor Presents Eartha Kitt," came out in 1954, featuring such songs as "I Want to Be Evil," "C'est Si Bon" and the saucy gold digger's theme song "Santa Baby," which is revived on radio each Christmas.

On television, she was the sexy Catwoman on the popular "Batman" series in 1967-68, replacing Julie Newmar who originated the role. A guest appearance on an episode of "I Spy" brought Kitt an Emmy nomination in 1966.

Book Review: Chicken and Cat Clean Up by Sara Varon.

Perfect for the young Cat Lover and just in time for the holiday's.

In this volume, a 40-page hardcover for $16.99 aimed at ages 4-8, Chicken runs a housecleaning service in New York City. Cat works with Chicken, but Cat is clumsy and causes accidents, wanting to play instead of work. It’s only when Cat plays to his strengths that he’s recognized for his help. The full-color pages are calm and welcoming in their cool pastels. This new book is a sequel to Chicken and Cat, which came out a couple of years ago from Scholastic.

How Old Is Your Cat?

An average life span might be 12 to 14 years. Some cats are reaching 20 or more.
 
A cat's longevity depends on feeding, genetics, environment, veterinary care and some other factors. It is also important whether or not the cat lives indoors or is allowed outdoors (outdoor cats live an averge of eight years).
 
The general consensus is that at about age seven the cat can be considered as "middle-aged", and at age 10 and beyond - old.
The cat's age in relation to a human's Cat's age: Human's age:
 
6 months- 10 years
