Have you ever found yourself watching a movie and then suddenly a particular scene or character or line just changes your life? Whatever cinematic moment speaks to you, I'm elated and proud to say that I too have found my own.
We're already well on pace to saving four to five times as many animals each year than the ASPCA has done during any year in recent history. Don't think of these animals as numbers -- at least any more than you would your own pets.
While hairballs in housecats are very common, you may be surprised to learn they aren't a normal part of a feline's digestive process. Your cat's digestive tract is built to handle a certain amount of fur -- both the fur she pulls off herself during grooming, as well as the hair attached to prey in the wild.
Now, you may be thinking, "Who does this cat think he is? Why does he deserve to be in a rap video more than my precious Fluffy?" Well, I can give you a good reason. In fact, I can give you 5 good reasons!
Hi. My name is Tater. I'm 9 months old which is why I've never had to do these so-called "New Year's resolutions" before. But apparently, they're pretty important to start the year off right. So now, in no particular order, my first-ever New Year's resolutions.
Last weekend I was taking some photos of my cousin's kids. We just happened to be on a farm with brand new kittens prancing around in all their kitten cuteness and the kids were absolutely eating it up. It was perfect.

If the Internet has served only one purpose in the world, it is most definitely to prove that people love cats. Take a look at some of the world's foremost kitten collections and realize that your precious pet video is just a shadow of these museums' devotion.
The thing about Sprocket is that I didn't teach him to do any of this. I didn't train him to assist with the foster cats, I didn't encourage interaction. He took it upon himself to repay the kindness that was shown to him by his initial rescuer.
The stigma surrounding cat ownership isn't too difficult to figure out. Owning a dog is generally associated with an active, healthy lifestyle. Owning a cat is generally associated with owning a couch. Dog owners visit dog parks. Cat owners visit Reddit.
This kitty was certainly in the wrong place but luckily, it was the right time. Southern California resident Paula Tiberius noticed a mama cat movin...
Cats are low-maintenance pets. They smell better than dogs. Cats will never eat your baby. They'll never hump your leg. They don't need to be walked, and they bury their poop.
It was unsure if Thumper, a white kitten with black spots, would ever walk, but once he took his first step, there wasn't a dry eye in the room.
My husband and I both have cat allergies but took a chance on the myth that this breed of kitten was hypoallergenic. Good news is, my husband hasn't had so much as one allergic sniffle. Bad news? I instantly plummeted into allergy hell.
Potter's work accesses a place in my mind (and I am sure many others) that's become a distant valley as I get older. His work has a childlike innocence that resounds through the ages.
