Cat News

My files are overflowing with images of all manner. In honor of our beloved Bluebird and her grandcats, I’m posting a few along with some other feline frivolity.

World’s Longest Cat Uses 19-Inch Body to Steal Snacks Off the Dinner Table

The world’s longest cat is here to reach into your heart with his supermodel limbs.
Arcturus Aldebaran Powers, a Savannah cat from Ann Arbor, Michigan, is now the World’s Largest Domestic Cat according to Guinness World Records, measuring just more than 29 in.
The 2-year-old cat weighs 30 lbs. and keeps his impressive body nourished by eating more than 1 lb. of food a day, reports The Telegraph. Arcturus also uses his length in an attempt to get extra snacks, often standing on his hind legs to reach the family kitchen table, which he shares with owners Will and Lauren.

Man left unable to get an erection after being scratched by a CAT and contracting rare feline disease

The unidentified patient, from Belgium, suffered erectile dysfunction due to an invasive cat-scratch disease

It is caused by bacteria called Bartonella henselae found in the mouth and claws of cats.
Those coming into contact with the disease can suffer fevers, pustules with complications from the illness even becoming fatal.
Women and girls accounted for 62 per cent and 55.6 per cent respectively of the diagnoses.
Cat owners are being warned to think twice when they cuddle their cat – and to always wash their hands after hugs and kisses with their fuzzy friend.

    Cute stuff, but good lord, what about the poor little kitty that flew out of the tube, involuntarily?? Any word if the little thing was rescued??
    Pretty painful to see the desperation in his body and gaping mouth!
    Would really like to know if someone responsibly jumped in and got him/her safely to shore.
