All You Need is a Catloaf of Love

 valentines day catloaf

Catloafing is one of the most versatile of cat positions.

Cats loaf when they’re super relaxed and can still remain attentive to the world around them, especially when snoopervising their human’s tasks from the cat tree or the computer keyboard. They can even fall asleep while loafing and it’s the most adorable thing in the world.

There are many good things about a catloaf. It’s soft and silky to the touch, which helps relieve stress. It also comes with a built-in motor which is activated when squeezed gently and has the most soothing sound that will cure your insomnia. You know the day is going to be good when you wake up to a warm freshly baked catloaf or two on your pillow.  Read More

Help us Shine a Light on Pet Adoption #RememberMeThursday

We are delighted to be teaming up with Helen Woodward Animal Center for a very special event, Remember Me Thursday®, to be held on September 28, 2017. This unique worldwide event honors those pets who have lost their lives while waiting for their forever homes and shines a light on those still waiting. Here at the Chirpy Cats household, we get excited and emotional when talking about pet adoption, since we have 8 adopted cats abandoned for various reasons and we want to spread the word and meow it from the rooftops cat trees!

Celebrating 20 years of TNR at South African University

View this post on Instagram

I felt very privileged to have met and mingled with some of the feral cats from TUFCAT, a TNR group based at University of Western Cape in Cape Town, South Africa. The university is home to many feral colonies for the past 20 years and thanks to the work of TUFCAT staff and volunteers, these kitties have not just been surviving, but thriving. This is ten year old Chong, senior resident of the Eduardo dos Santos residence on the university campus. Doesn't he have gorgeous whiskers? He warmed up to me for a little photo shoot. 😻😻 #whiskerswednesday #catsofinstagram #tufcat #tnr #feralcat #seniorcat #capetown #uwccats #universitycat #smartcat #beautifulcat #tuxedocat #handsomecat #catlover #southafrica #ilovecapetown

Why your cat needs a catio superhighway. Let’s go up!

All cats want to go up! The catio highway or better known as the “superhighway” if you’re a Jackson Galaxy fan of ‘catification’ is the perfect platform for surveying territory and owning space. Here, best friends George and Mr. Jack are enjoying the peace and tranquility of their superhighway in the catio at sunset after dinner. Seeing George assert his presence confidently by scratching and climbing is a wonderful site.

Because it wasn’t always so…

Sprint to the finish line

Cat running through tunnel

I’m not quite ready to quit just yet.

Fifteen year old Ninhsy Earl Grey, also known as Puma boy, has seen some interesting things in his life. He has even been to the beautiful Cliffs of Moher in Ireland, his country of birth and has travelled in three different countries with his pal Sarabi. These days he takes it slowly and loves spending time atop his favourite perch or just teaching his humans that patience is a virtue and that every moment with loved ones is priceless.

In May he was diagnosed with CKD (chronic kidney disease) and we’re doing all we can to make him feel good and enable him to enjoy the Autumn years of his life. Below are some photos of him having a ‘sprint’ in the tunnel, in his moment of sunset ‘zoomies’. Puma Boy has never been known for speed. Even in his youth he did things in his stride. He surprised us with quite a display of athleticism that we haven’t seen in a while, as if to say “I’m not ready to give up just yet.”

Battle of the kitty tunnels

When we completed our catio is was a 12’x10′ area with ramps, perches and a cascading vine surrounding it. We wanted to add more ‘places of interest’ for the cats to explore without modifying the layout completely and doing minimal adjustments to the catio.

Building cat tunnels is the perfect solution to extending an existing structure. We added a ground tunnel which eventually became the ‘catnip tunnel’ where cat-safe nasturtiums and catnip form a canopy of shade in late Summer. You can imagine this is the most sought-after hangout!

Our elevated tunnel leads to two other secondary catios and meets at the ‘central station’ which is off limits to the humans. Anyway, we now know that what happens in the central station, stays in the central station!

Sly Pie waits at his ‘pretend’ ticket booth at the entrance to the ground tunnel and he takes his job quite seriously. Anyone who tries to pass without paying the fee gets a powder puff.
