Loving Couple

Unfair, unflattering--Red Kitty looks a bit like a beached whale here, but the reason I grabbed my camera....

....was how sweet Red and Mariah looked snoozing after supper here, together. They are the best buddies even if Red is twice as large as Mariah. So I found a new gadget to help with my cats' health I'd like to put in a plug for here....

I have two male cats; each has been neutered and each is on a special diet to forestall urinary tract problems (I had a wonderful kitty die from this back in the '80's.) Drinking plenty of water is highly recommended, too.

Red Kitty loves to drink from a dripping faucet, has taught Mariah to do this and Purrmeister is just beginning to get the hang of it. This little water bowl with a circulating pump was not terribly expensive (under $30) and is easy to clean and maintain. It offers both the gentle stream of water AND the movement keeps the water fresh and aerated. I found it at Petsmart.

I'm really surprised by how much more water all the cats seem to be drinking now--I have to top it off a couple times a day! But you know the saying about "teaching an old dog new tricks?" Well, the Red Kitty is the slowest to get the hang of this contraption, so far....

I currently have it installed on a folded vinyl table cloth. Purrmeister thought it was the best toy ever at first so he was splashing all over the place....thankfully, I expected that and so was prepared before I filled it up and plugged it in. What is it with that kitten and water? I half expect him to start taking showers soon....

Window Watchers

My cats Irish and Maddux are indoor cats. Of course that doesn't mean that they don't like to peek at the outside. Today I caught Maddux at the window, licking the window and nipping at the birds, flying insects and butterflies on the other side of the glass.
Who? Me?
Yes, you Maddux!
Curious kitty...look at that tail twirling!
Here is a video. You can see Maddux chomping trying to get those suckers! (check out 0:21.) And his tail is twirling away!

At every possible opportunity, Hobbes chooses to be outside--even if it raining. There is lots going on out there now that spring has officially arrived. Lots of bugs to chase, birds to talk to, neighbors to visit, and catnip to munch on.

Life is good for Hobbes.

Sorry, no extra links for EC-advertisers on our widget, this past week

We are terribly sorry, but we don't know who to thank for advertising with us on our Entrecard widget.

The little card with all of the blogs names on it has disappeared and there is no other record to be found. Well, not with us, but if you login to your Entrecard-page and go to and pull down "history", you can see exactly when your ad ran on our site "The Red Cat Society".

So if you think that you had your badge on our widget from May 3rd to 9th, give this search a try and let us know what you find, because we don't have access to this information. We will give you an extra link.
Best wishes
from Calle Cat,

The Sunshine Magnet

I admire a kitty's ability to find the one sunbeam in the entire house. If there is sunshine--they're in it. And the whole purpose in finding it? To lay in it and enjoy.

I like their thinking.
