Flick, Dot and Buzz are busy cats who are out and about around the internet, and with the help of our human, we want to share the awesomeness of the internet with other cats and cat-people.
We want to share information about cat causes like cat-food-safety and having decalwing banned in Canada, and other kinds of cat-causes. We post links to cat resources and information on the intenet, and write articles about (and interviews with) interesting cats, and fun stuff too - cat toys and nip and such.

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 Facebook! We share recall and pet food safety information regularly through the Canadian Cats for Safe Pet Food page on Facebook: facebook.com/catsforsafepetfood

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. Last year we joined the Association for Truth in Pet Food http://associationfortruthinpetfood.com/ and this year we're supporting a campaign to raise funds to support independent testing for pet food safety. We feel it's a very important first step towards safer foods for cats (and dogs). If you buy commercial pet food for your cat or dog, please consider making a donation to this campaign - together we can ensure safer foods for pets! You can donate here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-pet-food-test#home
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).

Association for Truth in Pet Food
Excellent news cats! A new way we can find strength in numbers!
Two brilliant pet food safety advocates in the USA have banded together and are forming an Association for concerned pet owners to have a voice with the regulatory bodies that govern pet food safety. Pet owners in Canada as well as in the USA should consider membership in the Association for Truth in Pet Food. Pet food safety advocates Susan Thixton of Truth About Pet Food and Mollie Morrissette of Poisoned Pets have been tireless and effective advocates and this is a great chance to support their efforts to ensure pets have safe food.
We've written two new articles recently, 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.

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.
