Welcome to Crazy for Kitties and Cats!

Kitty Star of the Week

Shadow, a kitty from Pennsylvania, is our star, and her person-mom writes,

"I have a cat named Shadow. My sister has a cat named Midnight, and my parents have a cat named Zoomer. Shadow is black and white. I almost named her Boots, because her paws are white, and the only other part on her that is white is her stomach. I didn't name her Boots though, because she would have been missing a boot!

"She lives on the bed in my room or her cat condo. Shadow LOVES her food. She may sound like a pig but it's partly our fault. She doesn't know when to eat because we leave the food out all day. She sometimes falls asleep on the floor near the food bowl! It's funny.

"Shadow runs around a lot, plays/tackles her sister kitty, and loves to be petted, kissed, picked up, or anything else that involves being near you.

"Shadow especially loves jumping up onto the computer desk and sitting right in front of the computer and meowing like it is the end of the world. Then she'll step on the keyboard and mess up anything I was doing. I love her though, and she loves me. I don't think we could be without each other for more than two weeks. She goes nuts if I go near the door. She'll howl and howl and scratch at the door until I come back in. You can hear Shadow from across the street and down the parking lot. Shadow also likes to have staring and blinking contests. I really love Shadow -- and all cats and animals for that matter!"

From the Crazy for Kitties mailbox: One of the casting directors for Animal Planet's "My Cat from Hell" is looking for more people (4th season) who have cats with behavioral issues. The show features cat behavior expert Jackson Galaxy, who has helped many cats and their people -- maybe he can help your cat or the cat of someone you know. If you live in the Los Angeles area and have a crazy cat, contact the show -- check out the casting information page at My Cat from Hell. Maybe your cat has that devilish star quality!

Some cat facts...

  • The usual gestation period for kittens is 65 days.
  • The first cat show was held in 1871 in London, England.
  • Many Siamese have crossed eyes. This happens because many Siamese have crossed optic nerve fibers. Kittens will show cross-eyed-ness at about 6 to 8 weeks.
  • "Stumpy" refers to a Manx cat having a stump of a tail.
  • A cat at rest has a heart rate of between 100 and 140 beats per minute.
  • "Muzzle" is the projecting jaw and nose of a cat.
  • "Genotype" is the onstitution of an animal as described by its genes rather than its appearance.
