Happy New Year to all! As we say goodbye to 2022, many people will be looking back over the last 12 months, and remembering various high and low points. Actually, our feline pals also have a few things worth recapping. A local vet goes over some of them below.
Dave Finds A Home
The World Cup has gone to the cats! This year, two British players made the news after befriending a stray cat at their training camp in Al Wakrah, Dubai. Players affectionately named the kitty Dave, who was then adopted by Manchester City’s John Stones and Kyle Walker, and is now living it up as a celebrekitty.
A Plawsible Cause
In Columbus, Ohio, cat lovers are vying to add a unqiue license plate option: ‘Weirdo Cat Lovers Of Cleveland.’ Proceeds would go to a kitty charity, Weirdo Cat Lovers Of Cleveland, which supports TNR practices and provides emergency veterinary fund help. That’s a pretty worthy cause to support!
Dabbing In Dabloons
Apparently, Fluffy has been trying to get a pawhold in the digital currency market. In one of the latest viral TikTok trends, users exchange a new cryptocurrency known as Dabloons. So where do our feline friends come in? The Dabloon—which is loosely named after the doubloon, a Spanish coin—features cat pictures.
And there’s another story out of Ohio: this one is about a cute furball named Otis, who, after 14 years, retired from his official position as bookstore kitty at Loganberry Books. The beloved feline charmed many hearts over the course of his career, and is looking forward to a retirement that will probably consist mainly of naps.
A California woman was thrilled to be reunited with her long-lost cat, Lily, who had been missing for a long six years. This remarkable reunion is credited to a microchip. Microchips have brought many wayward kitties back to their humans. If you haven’t had your pet microchipped yet, this is a great reminder to do so!
If the internet has revealed anything about human nature, it’s probably the fact that we’re pretty obsessed with cats. One Instagram account is the purrfect demonstration of that. The page, Koty Vezde, is a big hit with kitty lovers: the artist puts Fluffy’s face on just about everything, from giraffes to llamas.
