Dog Saves Cat's Life


Zephyr meets his saviour Harlie.


A LITTLE black and white kitten's eyesight was saved thanks to help from a Great Dane dog. 

Eight-week-old Zephyr was found with three siblings under a shed in Liverpool in the UK. They had flu which had led to secondary pneumonia, horrific conjunctivitis with ulcerated eyes, ticks and severe flea infestation leading to anaemia and dehydration. Sadly one the kittens died. Two of them, Zouse and Zee, responded well to eye drops but Zephyr didn't. It was feared he would go blind.
So vets used a new technique to save his sight, treating him with serum drops made from elements of Great Dane Harlie's blood. The blood was separated using a centrifuge with the liquid part made into drops which help the surface of the eye to heal and stop tissue breaking down.
Steph Taylor of the Rescue Me Animal Sanctuary said: “The serum from Harlie was fairly unusual for us to use and we have never done it before. There are several types of conventional medicated drops and we used these first but as Zephyr was not responding to these, our vet suggested it.
Harlie’s owner Jess Parr, 30, said she wanted to help after seeing an appeal. She said: “I love cats and would love to have one, if I didn’t have four dogs."
Zephyr: On the mend.
Now Zephyr is on the road to recovery and has been introduced to Harlie.
Jess  said: “We were a bit worried about how Harlie would react to Zephyr. She has never met a cat in person, except for the one next door that walks up and down the garden fence just out of reach,  taunting her.
“Harlie is a big clumsy dog but when she was with Zephyr she was so gentle, it was almost like her maternal instinct kicked in."
Zephyr will be rehomed with his two brothers Zouse and Zee next weekend.
Harlie, Zephyr and Steph.

Canopy Cat Rescue



If kitty's gone  wild in you neighborhood
If he's stuck up a tree
And it don't look good
Who you gonna call?
CANOPY CAT RESCUE!

TWO wonderful guys from Western Washington in the USA are spending their time rescuing cats from trees.

Professional tree climbers Shaun Sears and Tom Otto  realised there was a problem with cats getting stuck up trees. So they decided to do something about it and set up Canopy Cat Rescue.

Cat rescuers: Tom (left) and Shaun.
Since Canopy Cat Rescue was formed in 2008, Shaun and Tom have rescued more than 2,000 cats.

Shaun said, "I think part of what makes Tom and I so good at what we do is that we have no shame in saying that we love cats."

Help! Hang on there, little guy, we're coming to get ya.


This is a right pickle I've gotten myself into. Phew, am I glad to see you!

The service is free, depending on donations to keep going.

Carlton and The Little Person

Here's a post from Carlton. He's a bit annoyed that Little Person is taking the Mrs's attention away from him!


Little Person looks a bit like this.

SOME kind of Little Person has joined the family. It's a called a baby and is owned by the Mrs's niece Violet.

For some reason which I fail to understand, the Mrs wanted to go and see Little Person. So she is away until tomorrow, leaving me in the care of the Mr. I don't know why they don’t trade Little Person in for a cat, it would be a lot less trouble. 

As far as I can see from photographs the Mrs has been emailed, Little Person is a very strange bald, toothless thing, not nearly as handsome as a certain ginger cat I could mention. Just saying.

While she’s away the Mr is attempting some DIY, putting up new shelves in the utility room. He has a big box of tools and is wearing a tool belt. I sit and watch him from the laundry basket. ‘Here’s some good advice for you, Carlton,’ he says. ‘Measure twice and cut once.’

Or, as it turned out, measure twice, cut several times, swear a lot.

He's spending the evening watching the tellybox, eating a takeaway, drinking beer, belching, and scratching himself. 

I’ll be glad when the Mrs is home and civilisation returns.

Have a good weekend, Peeps,

Carlton

Strange Things That Cats Do

I found this list of 27 small, strange things cats do that are irresistible here on Buzzfeed . Most of the list I could relate to but here are the ones that my cat invariably does:

Sit on a piece of paper as if it were a throne.

Find the most inopportune times to be a lap cat.
Place one gentle, delicate paw on you.

Mew for food and then change their minds.

All Aboard The Cat Train


ALL aboard the most purrfect train in the world.

The special trip in Japan was organised by a group called  Kitten Cafe Sanctuary to raise the awareness of the culling of stray cats in the area and to encourage people to adopt.

Thirty kitties were given free rein of a train for one special journey. Passengers were allowed to interact with the cats as the train set out from Ogaki in central Japan. They cuddled and played with the cats before tucking into lunch.

"I think it's great more people are aware about stray kittens through events like this," said Mikiko Hayashi, a passenger from western Japan who previously adopted two stray cats.

Shut Up!


My cat Carlton wants to say something. Oh no....

 

SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

by Carlton Cat


Don't come home and start talking to me about your friend's "adorable" cat. This paragon is soft and cuddly and has such striking markings. He's soooo friendly and soooo well-behaved (I get a pointed look here). He wouldn't dream of scratching the furniture or throwing up in your shoes (another pointed look). He's young (ouch) and eats what you put in his bowl (pointed look number three). 

You are wittering on and on and on and, frankly, I've had enough. 

But do you stop the eulogy to young Mr Buttons?  No you do not. I give you all the signals that I am less than pleased....

'Doctor' Duke Heals Patients


Duke at work.

ONE day you're living on the streets wondering where your next meal is coming from, the next you're an integral part of the medical team on an intensive care unit.

Meet Duke Ellington Morris, a therapy cat at UC San Francisco who is bringing joy and comfort to patients and staff alike.

"He's an absolutely lovely, lovely cat," said Elizabeth Fernandez, senior public information representative at UCSF. "He's so patient. I've watched him in action a number of times and he's given such consolation to our patients, and to our staff."

Taxi! Duke is wheeled around the unit on a cart.

Duke's story began in 2010 when he was a half starved feral cat brought into a shelter. He was adopted by Jennifer Morris for her five-year-old daughter Isa.

"We went into the cage area and Duke was very smitten by my daughter. So I figured the cat couldn't be all that bad," said Jennifer.

He quickly settled into the family and it soon became apparent that he was a real people person, hopping onto visitors' laps and purring happily. Jennifer thought his gift of love should be more widely shared and enrolled him in the San Francisco SPCA's Animal Assisted Therapy Program.

"He went to two different sessions to see if he was a good fit and he passed with flying colors," Jennifer said "They did all sorts of tests. A whole bunch of employees from the SPCA sat in the room and Duke made the rounds going from person to person."

Hello there, buddy.

 So now Duke is one of 18 animals - the rest are dogs - who comfort patients at UCSF Medical Center. Duke settled into the team immediately and is loving his work.

"They [the therapy pets] need to be very, very calm and they need to work well with new people," said Elizabeth Fernandez. "And they need to like to be petted by strangers."

Duke takes all the cuddles he can get before moving on to his next patient - with a little help from the cart that has become his trademark ride.

Duke still lives with Jennifer and Isa, going home each evening to even more cuddles. 



Duke and Isa.

Feline Good In The Office

Let me help you with this report.
I WANT to work in this office! Nine rescue cats have free run of IT firm Ferray's offices in Tokyo and it is a move that has proved to be very effective. 
Whatcha doin'?
The company says the presence of the cats has increased workplace productivity and happiness with a big rise in inter-office communication. I don't doubt it for a second.
Have you tried turning it on and off again?
The workers love their new companions even when everything is not exactly plain sailing. There are the occasional chewed wires to deal with, or cats hogging the keyboard or cutting off phone calls. But it seems it's a small price to pay for the stress-busting qualities of these adorable kitties.
Listen up, guys. Our next campaign is to get free cardboard boxes for all employees.
Eri Ito, who works at Ferray, says she loves working with the kitties. 
"Cats are sleeping just beside us... It's healing," she said.
Why don't you go and take a coffee break for an hour or two?
