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.]



Enjoy all the Previous Stars of the Week.

And ... Would you like your kitty to be the Star of the Week? Don't be shy... contact us, and email your cat's picture and bio today.

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...

  • "Cat" in Polish is "kot."
  • "Snub" means the short noses seen in some of the longhaired varieties.
  • Cats have 4 kinds of hairs: down hairs are closest to the skin; awn hairs are in the middle of the coat; guard hairs keep the cat dry; vibrissae are the hairs that make up whiskers.
  • Cats can "taste" smells because they have a well develped vomeronasal organ below their nasal cavity.
  • "Mittens" are the pure white feet on some cats.
  • A kitten will knead its mother's stomach to stimulate milk flow.
  • "Polydactyl" refers to the situation where a cat has more toes than normal on one or more feet. 5 toes are normal for the front feet; 4 toes are normal for the back feet.
  • Alfalfa sprouts and vegetable greens can be a great addition to your cat's diet. Try a little finely chopped spinach or parsley (in very small quantities to start) on kitty's next meal.
