There can be too much of a GOOD thing…

I know, that is a hard one for me to stomach too. You may have already guessed it, but I like to eat. Everything just tastes soo good. And, if I haven’t tried it, I want to try it. And, what better way to try something than with my mouth!

I don’t know why my human got so worked up the other day, but really, if you are going to put some huge, yummy, smelly treats in the dogs’ bowls and then leave for a few seconds, what do you expect to happen? Seriously human! Did I not train you properly? (How to Cat-Proof your home.)

Okay, all kitten aside, yes, the Heartgard Plus chews were for my huge canine brothers, and yes, they weigh a tad bit more than me (I weigh a svelte 4kg – okay, maybe a teeny tiny more), and my canine brothers weigh 25kg and 40kg. But, whose counting? Although, I guess it does matter when determining treat size. By the reaction from my human, you would have thought I ate the last bit of catnip in the entire world. Now, that would have been a true Cat-astrophe. I tried to calm her down and tell her I was feline fine by wrapping my tail around her leg. I even gave her a few head bunts to remind her that it was almost dinnertime. Instead, she went CATcrazy, she was hiss-terical! She screamed! She started looking under every piece of furniture to see if she could find the treats. I was purr-ty surprised, and maybe a little hopeful she might find some more for me! She knows me better than that though. I do Not waste food.

She started talking into the small black square that she is always snapping at me with while saying “Smile”. (First thing, call your Veterinarian if you think your cat’s been poisoned.) Whatever that black thing is, it must have started talking back to her, and she finally calmed down. She kept asking “Is this an emergency?” “Is this an overdose?” “What do I need to watch out for?” These are all good questions in a true emergency, but I was purr-fectly fine. (Top Cat Poisons.) I just ate a tad bit more than I should have (by oh, I don’t know – 3XXXXX). I did give her about 10x more the usual surprises in my litter box the following day. So purr-haps I ate something that I shouldn’t have, purr-haps.

There you have it, there can be too much of a good thing – when it comes to tasty medicine treats that is! Don’t forget to Cat-Proof your house, know the Cat Poisons, and have your Veterinarian and the Animal Poison Control Number in your black square.

Cats and wildlife live longer when cats stay indoors. 

FELNE FAVORITE OF THE DAY

TRASH BIN BABIES. Four of these babies were left in a box underneath El Refugio Costa Ballena’s trash bin. What if it would have been trash day – oh my!! Thankfully, a shelter volunteer found the kittens still alive. Now, they are safe, well, and absolutely beautiful and available for adoption.

Tortitude? Definitely!

What is Tortitude, you ask? Have a seat with your favorite feline to find out.

A Tortoiseshell cat is a feline with a little bit more Catitude. Us cats all have Catitude. Some of us just have a paw bit more (or at least that is what the feline experts say).

My opinion, although, I’m just a cat, is that Tortoiseshell cats are indeed a little more feisty, a little more independent, but alot of pretty. They are often referred to as “Torties” for short.

I secretly always had a feline crush on Snickers at the El Refugio Costa Ballena Shelter with her beautiful shiny black and red coat. Look at how regal she is (WOW MEOW)!

Another fascinating fact about Torties, is that Torties are almost always female. Just 1 in 3000 are male. At the El Refugio Costa Ballena shelter, they currently only have 3 Torties, and yes, you guessed it – they are all female! Torties are pretty rare indeed!

I also read in my research, that Torties can bring money, have psychic abilities and see into the future. I’m not usually a superstitious feline, but these days, any extra cash for catnip is a vote for me.

So, if you are in the Costa Ballena area of Costa Rica, adopt yourself your very own Tortie cat from El Refugio. Or, if you are in another area of the world, go to your local animal shelter and adopt yourself some Tortie love. You will be widely entertained, gifted with riches, and of course, madly loved by your new Tortie Cat. Let yourself be loved by a feline. Life is always better with a feline in it.
