Yeah, We Get Stressed Too

When the going gets tough, the cats get spraying. Or so the humans think. But I have to say it’s fairly accurate. When the writers in the Weekly Cat office are stressed everyone is spraying all over the place. Not a pretty sight. But some cats do look for other alternatives.

Read more about the stressed cat and spraying here.

Fight Back…or Hide…

There’s been a lot of news on missing cats, and some people think it might be coyotes. You can read more about it here. Obviously this isn’t the case in all areas. But if you are in these dangerous locations, here are some tips.

1) Go around in groups

2) Run

3) Fight back

4) Hide

5) Trick them with cat magic

Better still though. If you live in an area where there might be coyotes, just don’t go out. If your owners open the doors, close it in their face. Stay safe cat friends.

For a more visual guide.

A couple in the UK phone emergency services when their cat had a heart attack. Here is the article. What’s the problem though? We cats need help if we’re having a heat attack too. The paper is making out like it’s a bad thing!

We would never be able to do it for a human though. Not because we don’t like them. It’s because most of the time we have to fight the phone off Poosa.

We get a lot of films through the Weekly Cat fan mail, but most of them are from humans telling us to watch human movies. We didn’t like Transformers, and we don’t want to watch the new Footloose. But, we do want to see ‘The Future‘. The film is seen through the eyes of a cat, as of yet we aren’t sure who this cat is but when we get an interview we’ll let you know.

More about the film on stltoday.

This week we heard a rumor about a friend of ours going to jail. All week we wondered what he did, cat nip smuggling? Attacking humans? But instead we think it’s just community service for attacking a bird. He will be helping inmates in Lincoln County jail with stress.
