Guest Cat From California--Best Cat of California?

Well, there's been some debate about who the best cat is. But of course, as cat lovers we all think our cat is the greatest of them all.

Anyway, meet Sabrina!

We have recently received this e-mail from friends of A & J (owners of Orion and Astro), requesting that Sabrina be featured on this blog:

Dear E and V, We have been excitedly following your blogsite for the latest news on the BEST cats of MN! Please consider our kitty, Sabrina (aka Mrowser) for a guest feature on your fine blog site. Sabrina is a simple kitty who likes pens and rubber bands, and she is an acquaintance of your featured cat-like friends from CA, Astro and Orion! Pictures are attached. Cheers from Riverside, California, Sabrina's Parents (R and A)

How could we refuse?

Isn't she beautiful?

Their Own Room

Recently, Butterscotch and Truffle have been waking Mom and Dad up at around three a.m. Then a few days ago, Mom and Dad decided they'd had enough. The kitties were to sleep in the laundry room. The cats have been taking turns yowling to be let out. It's Butterscotch's turn tonight.

Toy Recommendations

Here are some toys you might want to try with your cats.
The toys are called...

  • Jingly toy
  • String
  • Balls with tinsel on the outside,
  • Catnip mice (they are not real mice)
  • magic carpet (you attach a string to a towel and than pull it around. The cat will attack the towel!)
  • catnip spray (you spray a toy with it, and if the cat likes catnip they will LOVE it!)
  • catnip squares
  • catnip squares inside of a ball that has holes all over it
  • Little tiny catnip mice that are different colors
  • They like bags, baskets, boxes, and blanket caves (all for sleeping)
  • feathers on a stick
  • and of course, another cat is the perfect toy!

Hope this gives you some ideas of what to play with your cat!
