Advocacy and Activism
Pet Food Safety
That's our big issue right now, we're doing cat food safety activism work! We are very concerned about safe pet food since the Association for Truth in Pet Food presented the results of the first ever (apparently) consumer funded scientific analysis testing of commercial pet food. And the results are shocking! Read more on our updated PET FOOD SAFETY Page
Follow us on Google+! We share recall and pet food safety information regularly through Pet Food Safety Canadian Advocacy Group on Google+: https://plus.google.com/communities/...
The Cat Coat of Arms
We have a new coat of arms, so to speak! The Kibble, Grass, Nip, Wounded Mouse crest! =^..^=
This year we have been busy with our ongoing project of Pet Food Safety advocacy work... and in our spare time, patrolling our balcony, and managing our cat nip crop. Plus, frightening mice at night. Recently our human made us a crest to thank us for our work in deterring mice.
Join our Paws for Earth Challenge
Next to Boxing Day, Earth Day is our favorite holiday. After all, earth is our home, where everything we know and care about lives, and until we've proven that mice live on other planets, it's where we'll stay. Please join us for a 'Paws for Earth' special earth day celebration (and challenge).

Pet Food Safety Advocates
Hi Cats, we've been busy reading and we've decided to become pet food safety advocates. Don't worry, we're all safe and healthy, but there's lots of frightening things going on in the pet food industry. The more we've learned, the more concerned we have become. We joined the Association for Truth in Pet Food http://associationfortruthinpetfood.com/ and we continue to support this cause with funds raised by running ads in this website - you can support our work by clicking on ads that interest you!

Meet some famous cats
We've written these two articles about some famous cats who have inspired us
Our local hero cat, Fritz the Cinema Cat of Salt Spring Island. Fritz is possibly the most famous feline who's ever lived on the island, if not throughout the entire Gulf Islands. From our point of view, he's certainly more famous than some of the local human residents, but humans might feel otherwise. He was certainly very widely admired and highly regarded by his community.
An interview with a contemporary artist who's work we admire, Henry the Feline Fiber Artist, who's claw-work creates the fabulous 3D abstract fiber art sculptures on display at his local public library.

Litter Box Problems?
Cat litter boxes are something cat owners hate to deal with, but if your cat starts going outside the box, you've got a whole new problem. Litter box issues can be complicated to understand, but there's lots of great information out there to help cat owners find the source of the problem and a good solution that will make both cats and people happy. Find cat litter joy and a happy box
Tail Talk - a cat language lesson
Some people; often ones who describe themselves as 'dog people' think that cats are uncommunicative creatures. They would be exactly wrong! Cats communicate in all sorts of ways. Our most obvious signalling device is our tail, so we'll start with that. You can read all about TAIL TALK and look for future articles about other means of feline communication.
