  • Tribute to Catster Superstar, Scooter

    One of the most difficult aspects of participating in a vibrant cat community like Catster is experiencing the loss of cats you have come to love as if they were your own. The last month has been especially rough on me. A few weeks ago, one of my first online cat friends, Kalin, went the …

  • Control Your Cat — With a Remote Control?

    Cat author Dena Harris pointed out a groundbreaking new product to me: A remote control for your cat! I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve wanted to mute Mao (the vocal Siamese), or press a button that would get Rocky to finally hock up that hairball. This product appears to fill the bill. …

  • A Pet’s Ten Commandments

    Recently I read the Pet’s Ten Commandments at PetsHealth.com, and was touched by the list.

  • Monday Movie: The Best Superbowl Commercial Ever

    I hope everyone enjoyed the game and didn’t overdo it on the nip. Last week I read a couple of lame attempts to list the all-time top 10 Superbowl commercials. They were all pretty much inventories of Bud ads with a glaring omission: the classic EDS “Herding Cats” commercial. I’ve watched it over a hundred …

  • Pimp Your Ride to Support Spay and Neuter

    Did you know that many states offer special license plates to help fund spay-and-neuter programs within the state? Georgia, of course, is my favorite, with a cat-specific design that was recently unveiled (they offer a dog-only design as well.)
