Chester is a very handsome boy! I love his facial expression and how regally he sits surveying his environment . . . or he is checking out one of the other felines that occupies my friend Donna's house.

No matter what he is thinking, I just had to make him our Pet of the Week.

Let's leave some resounding apaws for Chester and Donna on his stellar win, in a conCATulary comment.

Fabulous Friday on Frequently Feline:Need a Translation of Feline Talk

Since Easter falls on this coming Sunday I thought I would break with tradition once again, and share this adorable video of a lilac point Siamese who is certainly not at loss for words.
I chucked so hard watching him that I just had to add it to my blog. He reminded me so much of my Oriental Lilac Point, Hush Puppy, who also possesses the gift of gab. Uploaded to YouTube by otterwhiskers, it is one of my favorites.

What do you think this kitty is talking about? Leave a comment and translate.

Don't Declaw: Save Paws: Friday on Frequently Feline

While Fabulous Friday on Frequently Feline is generally devoted to "Pet of the Week" , today I am breaking with tradition, to implore our readers and their friends to consider joining together to ban declaw surgery once and for all.

A few facts about Declaw Surgery:

1.While this surgery is offered throughout the United States, it is considered to be animal cruelty in 25 countries around the world; therefore the surgery is banned. Recovery from the procedure causes cats excrutiating pain. While most vets tell clients that it is no "big deal" cats suffer needlessly.

2. Declawing frequently results in behavioral disturbances which are far more destructive than scratching behaviors.. Often cats resort to biting, which is far more dangerous to humans than a scratch, once the cat realises they no longer have claws for defense. Cats are smart and quickly learn how to protect themselves.

3. Cats often stop using their litter boxes as litter is very painful to their sensitive paws. Declawed paws can remain exquisitely tender and sensitive to pain long after the "healing" process is finished. As a result of this dilemma, cats often resort to inappropriate elimination and will not use their litter boxes.Therefore if "destructive" scratching furniture and carpet behaviors were the primary reasons to declaw a cat to prevent rehoming it, the inappropriate elimination will certainly be a cause for surrender to shelter or abandonment.

4. Cats often develop arthritis as they age brought on by the disfigurement and misalignment of their toes.

5. Cats need their claws to be able fully stretch out their bodies; an essential part of a cat's behavior. Toe amputation prevents the cat from fully utlizing their muscles.

6. Cats also need their claws for balance, to prevent serious falls from high places. Climbing is one of a feline's natural instincts.

Hybrid Pets Make a Huge Leap in Development

While perusing "Catster" this morning, (one of my favorite websites), I learned of a new and possibly frightening genetic program which has been developed to allow cats and dogs to inter-breed. Since hybrids seem to be the rage these days, scientists have been working feverishly to create a canine that has many of the fine attributes of a feline.

Perhaps the dog will purr? Maybe this canine will use a litter box with no training? I suspect that we will easily be able to train our cats to really be "watch cats", to help protect our families.
I tell ya, I was simply amazed when I read their article this morning.

So I strongly suggest you read more about this, and decide if this is phenominal breakthrough would be something of interest to you. What do you think?
