5 Ways to Get Attention When You’re Being Ignored (by your human)

Last updated January 6th, 2020

Hi, I’m Jimmy the ginger and white polydactyl cat with ridiculously cute thumbs and a confident paw shake. We haven’t shared a Caturday Voodle (our videos with voice-over) in a while but today I will share a video that will make you examine your relationship with your human more closely and show you how to get the attention you deserve.  Read More

Pumpkins, Bow Ties and Meowvelous Monday Haiku

Hello furriends, it’s me Mr. Jack and I’m presenting Meowvelous Monday Haiku today. I never thought I could ever get excited about wearing a bow tie but when the Lady Cat started taking photos in the catio I sprinted in to join her. You see, in the past, I never condoned any sort of accessory on me because I don’t like to taint my fifty shades of grey with any other color. She once made me wear a hat, well I only agreed to because it was Canada Day and well, after a while it felt okay so I guess I tolerated it… for ten seconds.   Read More

Create a Spooky-licious Cat Salad Bar that’s frightfully easy with colorful water beads

Last updated March 9th, 2021

Have you ever thought of growing cat grass without soil? here are step-by-step instructions for growing cat grass in water beads for lots of fun at the cat salad bar!

Growing cat grass for your cat is always a fun project whether it’s for an indoor salad bar or an outdoor watering hole. At the Chirpy Cats lair, we like to keep fresh supplies of grass pots, especially when the weather cools down and the cats spend less time in the catio and more time indoors visiting the salad bar. In our Ultimate Guide to Growing Cat Grass, we provided step-by-step instructions for growing cat grass the traditional way with potting soil.

Why not change things up a bit and ditch the dirt for water beads? Yes, you’ve read that right, no soil needed. For this grass project, you will be using water gel beads instead of potting soil to grow your cat grass!

Who are the TUFCATs and where are they now? #GlobalCatDay

Last updated October 16th, 2019

TUFCAT Feral cat project at the UWC campus in cape Town South Africa

Global Cat Day, celebrated worldwide on October 16, was borne out of a need to rally for and strengthen support for humane policies to protect community cats. It’s a day to celebrate and spread the word that community cats have their rightful place on this planet and can coexist with humans in our living environments.

“The purpose of Global Cat Day is to strengthen support for humane policies that protect cats. October 16, we’re rallying people around the world to take our pledge to speak up for the cats in their communities and show kindness for all catkind.” Alley Cat Allies

Last year on Global Cat Day we shared stories about the community campus cats at the University of the Western Cape in Cape Town, South Africa. Mr. Spunky, in particular, had his heart healed by a litter of four kittens. I caught up with Dr. Sharyn Spicer, lecturer and founder of TUFCAT, The UWC Feral Cat Project, and I was pleased to hear of the many positive changes and major successes along their sometimes very tough journey.

Why I Write About Cats and my WIPIN Rising Star Award!

Last updated August 2nd, 2020

It was one of those crazy mornings; cleaning up a scarf and barf incident thanks to Charlie, trying to coax senior girl Sarabi to eat her favorite flavor of Fancy Feast and scurrying around trying to find a new spot for my latest cat grass project that the two Yoots had just uprooted! I was late for work and things went pear-shaped from there.  Read More

How one homeless cat made it to the other side of the glass #RememberMeThursday

Last updated September 26th, 2019

I was staring face to face with an intruder, a masked face barely visible in the shadows. When my eyes became accustomed to the darkness, in that faint glimmer of moonlight, I could see two wide eyes staring blatantly back at me, unafraid and curious. The masked intruder suddenly ran off and disappeared into the cold winter night. I could see a tiny cat silhouette in the distance. He stopped and looked back as if to say “I will be back.”
