Time for us to celebrate a national treasure - NATIONAL PET WEEK! May 1-7! (Yes, Virginia, there is such a thing!) A week for you humans to honor us, your pets, your loyal companions, compadres, partners in crime!

visit the official website:

This site has lots of cool information, including tips on finding a vet! I, of course, was most interested in the FIVE TOP FELINE FACTS - which I'll share below:

•There are 10 million more cats owned in America than dogs. (HAH - I LOVE THIS ONE)
•Cats are less than half as likely to be seen by a veterinarian and receive healthcare.
•There are "cat-friendly" practices that focus on making trips to the veterinarian less stressful for your cat.
•Cats CAN be trained. (Heck, I knew that :)
•Maine, Vermont, Oregon, Idaho and Washington have the highest percentage of cat-owning households.

and in case you want to know more about us felines, here are some other cool sites:

The Catalyst Council's vision is to raise the level of care and welfare of cats by cat owners – one that any owner will embrace through the human-animal bond and can achieve – supported by the highest quality veterinary care, preventative medicine, and cat specific products.

Both sites contain many helpful tips on preserving your favorite feline's health and well being! It is a MUST VISIT for any dedicated cat owner/lover!

In other news, SMOKY THE CAT made the Guiness book of world records for having the world's loudest purr....hmmmm.....have they heard mine???????

Apparently Old Smoke is as loud as a lawnmower. Hails from Jolly Old England!

And now I'm off to friend Smokey on Facebook :)

Meowingly yours,
