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.

Alone = Bad

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.

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.

Last Chance to Name New Cat

So the Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has a new cat. This is the last evening you will get the chance to name the new kitty so get over to his Facebook page and send your suggestions.

Some of our suggestions were Maple, Canuck and Tory. Though a random name like Larry is always a favorite.

We have monster munch in the office, it’s ok, but we all agreed that only eating monster munch is crazy! Surely if you picked something to eat all the time it would be Nik Naks Nice n Spicy.

 

 

Yes, the humans have gone all crazy again. A few years ago it was swine flu, with practically every human believing they were going to die. Us cats on the other paw, chilled and laughed as the humans realized they were being over the top.

Now though it’s starting to happen again, with hundreds upon thousands of people throwing out their cucumbers. This is because recently they thought it would increase the risk of E-Coli. You’re wrong again, and before you go all mental on us, put out the food and cat treats so we can survive the scare.

Here’s a couple of our writers showing you there’s nothing to be worried about.

Larry has cucumber for lunch everyday.

One of our editors pretending to be human and going mad.

We heard the news today that a fish jumped in a boat and broke a womans leg. Rather than asking if this woman was ok, most of our writers want to know where the lake is.

It's not the one but we'll catch it in the end.

Not only is this dangerous for the cat but there were probably some people in the area that were trying to run. The young cheetah was found injured, we hope the youngster gets well soon.
