Welcome to Crazy for Kitties and Cats!

Kitty Stars of the Week

Our stars this week are 2 kitties who live in Canada, and their names are Maya and Marvin:


Maya and Marvin

Their person-mom writes,

"Marvin is the one with the blue collar, and Maya is the one posing so pretty for the picture. They are both really sweet cats. Both of them are indoor cats, so they are very family oriented. They love a roaring fire and they are quite frankly...lazy...LOL... They sleep with whomever has the coziest bed at the time and have no problems snuggling in. Now and again, you'll catch them play-fighting and running up a storm from one end of the house to the other. And believe me, elastics are not safe...they'll find them."

[Editor: Maya and Marvin's mom is right to be careful of elastics (rubberbands or stretch strings). It can be a serious medical problem if your cat eats one. If your cat does swallow one, don't try to get it out yourself. Take your cat to the vet immediately and explain what has happened.]

From the Crazy for Kitties mailbox: One of the casting directors for Animal Planet's "My Cat from Hell" is looking for more people (4th season) who have cats with behavioral issues. The show features cat behavior expert Jackson Galaxy, who has helped many cats and their people -- maybe he can help your cat or the cat of someone you know. If you live in the Los Angeles area and have a crazy cat, contact the show -- check out the casting information page at My Cat from Hell. Maybe your cat has that devilish star quality!

Some cat facts...

  • If a cat's tail is up with a relaxed tip, he/she is saying, "Happy to see you!"
  • Cats will claw things with their front claws -- this is called stropping.
  • If the tail is in an inverted-U (not fluffed up), the kitty is feeling a little anxious.
  • The European Burmese colors are brown, cream, lilac, red, blue, chocolate, and the Tortoiseshell versions of these colors.
  • "Stumpy" refers to a Manx cat having a stump of a tail.
  • Kittens' eyes are usually shut for the first 5-10 days of life.
  • The rough, upper surface of a cat's tongue is covered with papillae (small bumps).
  • If your cat does not eat for 48 hours, contact your veterinarian right away.
