Here’s a Museum Any Cat Lover Will Appreciate!

Ask any cat person…how many cat-themed items do they have in their house?  Chances are that the answer will be “a lot!”  One cat-loving couple in Krakow, Poland had so many cat knick-knacks that they decided to open a museum.

According to an article on the museum in Travel and Leisure, the museum is only around 160 square feet, but it contains at least 1,000 cat-related items.

How did it begin?  Like many cat lovers, the museum’s owner was given a cat figurine as a gift, and then it kind of grew from there.

Check out the museum’s Facebook page and this cute video for a peek inside this must-see destination for cat fanciers!

 

 

Video: Construction Workers Rescue Stowaway Kittens from Steel Column

Five tiny kittens made big news here in San Diego recently!  Workers on a construction site were surprised to hear meows coming from a 60 foot steel column that had traveled hundreds of miles from Hayward to San Diego on a truck.

After failing to coax the kittens out with food, the workers had to tip the long tube over and slide them out.  Inside were a litter of 3 males and 2 females, just one week old!

Rescuers from the San Diego Humane Society came to the construction site and brought the kittens to SDHS’s 24 hour kitten nursery.

The kittens—named Crowbar, Rebar, Chisel, Jackhammer, and Piper—are now 4 weeks old and in foster care, where they will remain until they are ready for adoption at 8 weeks.

San Diego Humane Society Shares Lost Cat Story with a Happy Ending

The San Diego Humane Society is sharing a heartwarming story about the incredible journey of a Bengal cat named Mufasa.

Five years ago, Mufasa was a kitten, living with his owners in Yuma Arizona.  He went missing and his owners never gave up hope that they would find him again.

Fast-forward five years to the San Diego Humane Society.  Mufasa was surrendered to SDHS by his current “owners.”  Standard procedure at the shelter is to scan all pets for microchips.  Mufasa’s microchip revealed that he actually belonged to someone else!

Mufasa’s original owners now live in Oklahoma City, and were overjoyed to hear that Mufasa had been found.  They immediately flew to San Diego to retrieve Mufasa, who seems to have remembered his first human family!

June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month!

The warm weather means that kitten season is here!  Kitten season is the time of year when unaltered cats allowed to roam outside will mate and produce litters of kittens.  Sadly, many of these homeless kittens (and their moms) will end up in animal shelters.

This is a great time to open your heart and home to a kitten or adult shelter cat.  Many shelters and rescue groups provide valuable cat adoption incentives in the spring and summer months.

It’s also a good time to remind cat owners to spay and neuter their pets and keep them safely indoors.

You can search for available cats and read more about cat adoption on the Petfinder website.
