Silent Sunday on Frequently Feline

I have seen some patient cats in my time, but this little one really takes "PATIENCE" to another level, completely.

Uploaded to YouTube by MaRmARK0, I think this short video is a fitting tribute to just how tolerant cats can be.

Are your cats as gentle and considerate as you would like? Leave a comment and share your experiences.

Fabulous Friday on Frequently Feline-Pet of the Week

My friend Sondra has a heart as big as all outdoors. She works as a Veterinary Assistant in an animal clinic, showering "her" patients with love and compassion.

So, when a needy Siamese cat was brought in for vetting by the local Humane Society and having no foster home available, he would have been "tossed into the Humane Society trailer with 20 other cats", Sondra came to the rescue and brought him home.

Sondra and her husband named him Mr. Bigglesworth, and is affectionally called, "Mr. Big".

He is about 6-7 years old, weighs 8 pounds and is a totally healthy kitty. Slowly, Sondra is introducing Mr. Big to their resident kitties, Grace and Nick, who are not tickled with a new brother, but hopefully all will work out well, and their household will be adorned with three happy kitties.

Since Mr. Big has such a sweet expression and is very kind to Sondra, we are bestowing him with the title of "Pet of the Week".

Please leave a conCATulary comment, with glow and best wishes for a positive outcome for the trio.

Fabulous Friday on Frequently Feline-Pet of the Week

Xena at 8 weeks of age

Surfing the Internet as much as I do, it is inevitable that I "meet" some fascinating feline fanciers who share my passion for cats. While answering a question on Yahoo Answers the other day, I made a new friend, Angela, who's kitty, Xena, caught my eye!

Angela gave her that "Warrior Kitten" name as she was a fiercely brave kitten who "never backed down". Angela met Xena when the mamma cat, a Domestic Short Hair grey tabby, with 5 kittens two days old, was brought into the vet's office where Angela was working. Angela, seeing the kitten's unique markings, fell in love and "had to" adopt her ... and it has been a love affair for 8 years now.

Ms Xena is a Diva kitty. She loves to stare at her reflection in the mirror, admiring her reflection. Well, this is certainly not unreasonable for such a beautiful girl!

Xena is her soul kitty, who has added so much to her life. This is a friendship which was destined to be!

So without further amew, Xena is our beautiful Snow Shoe kitty Pet of the Week.

Please leave a comment of conCATulations to Xena's "mom" Angela, and her "dad", James, and of course lots of head bonks to this fabulous feline.

Silent Sunday on Frequently Feline: The Cat Tower

As far as I am concerned, Thecatdiaries videos are the "Cat's meow". Aaronrift has an amazing talent for producing fabulous feline dramas which can be watched over and over again with delight. So enjoy this one, "The Cat Tower" and enjoy a few belly laughs.

Do you enjoy Thecatdiaries videos as much as I do? Leave a comment and share.

Fabulous Friday on Frequently Feline: Happy Birth Announcement

While you might not guess it, from some of the terrible weather which has been plaguing some of the areas in the country, Spring is just around the corner. This is the season when mares deliver their foals who will be actively cavorting in pastures and paddocks along side their mothers.

It gives me great joy to announce one of these births. Mr. and Mrs. Roy Jackson, who owned Barbaro, a horse who stole the hearts of so many people, and who will forever be remembered by horse lovers around the world, recently shared the news about their newest colt, Barbaro's third full baby brother.

Born to La Ville Rogue and sired by Dynaformer, the colt was born on March 10, at 10:45 PM at Mill Ridge Farm near Lexington, Kentucky. At birth, he weighed 145 pounds. I highly suspect that this colt will be named Sereno for the fourth hound in that famous family lithograph owned by the Jacksons.

According to "Blood Horse Magazine" Headley Bell, the managing partner at Mill Ridge said, “He is a good size colt with plenty of leg and size as indicative of his weight. A bay colt, he only has a marking on the center of his forehead. Thankfully both mom and baby are well.”

While I do not have a photograph of the newcomer, I had to share a photo of Nicanor, Barbaro's first full brother, shortly after he was born.

And while not considered a "pet", it gives me a great deal of pleasure to bestow the title of Pet of the Week for the new baby.

Please leave a comment of congratulations for the birth of the new colt.

Silent Sunday: Well Almost.. 'Cept for the Snoring!

Cats and deep sleep often go together like apple pie and ice cream. Since this is Silent Sunday, I had to break the tradition and introduce "Java Jackson", who's owner refers to him as "the caffeinated tuxedo", since he tends to "bounce off walls" with his huge output of energy.

I think he was plumb tuckered out, during the filming of this video, uploaded to You Tube by lisacat. A BARC Shelter alumni cat, this cutie pie can sure snore up a storm. And if you listen carefully, his feline friend, Hodge's high pitched snores can be heard in the background.

Do your cats snore? Leave a comment and let us know! Yawning here!

Fabulous Friday on Frequently Feline: Needs a Caption for Pet of The Week

Cats can find the darndest places in which to nap. They also can find some of the most amazing hobbies with which they can entertain themselves.

This little guy seems quite "attached" to this planter and shows a keen interest in horticulture, don't you think? Since I don't know the name of the cat, or his cat servant . . . the photo was sent to me by a friend, as it is circulating widely over the Internet, I still had to make him our Pet of the Week.

But I do think the photo needs a caption. So please do contribute some creative ones to add to our viewing pleasure. ConCATulations to whomever shares their home and heart with this very sleepy kitten.

Silent Sunday on Frequently Feline

To say that kittens are adorable is a huge understatement. They can entertain us for hours. While this video of a fabulous Scottish Fold baby kitten, uploaded to YouTube by Panda0000000 will delight you only for a little over a minute, I bet your chuckles will last a lot longer. Enjoy!
