Fashion Savvy – Kitty Wigs

We all know that some people like to dress up their dogs, but now more and more people are dressing up their cats. Yes, I said cats! There is nothing your fashion savvy kitty needs more than a kitty wig! I’m serious, you can get a wig for your cat.

Flash the Cat Modeling a White WigKitty Wigs* offers four different wigs to choose from. They come in pink, blonde, white and electric blue. Each wig arrives in its own metal carrying case along with a hair net and a mouse rattle. All for only $50.

Kitty Wigs is owned by Julie Jackson and her Siamese cat, Boone. After a stressful day, she would come home, put a wig on herself and Boone and dance around the room. Soon, she decided that her passion should be shared with others, so she founded KittyWigs.com.

Not only that, twenty percent of her profits are donated to the ASPCA! Thank you Julie for supporting a good cause!

So if your cat is fashion savvy and doesn’t mind being dressed up. (This would never EVER fly with Mister Bits, he doesn’t even like collars!) Stop on over to Julie’s site and get your cat a Kitty Wig!

*Wigs and other cat clothing should always be worn under strict human supervision to prevent injury or accident ingestion of clothing parts.

15 lb Tabby Trees Bear

Cat Trees Bear

I found this article in National Geographic and I couldn’t help but giggle!

June 13, 2006—Perhaps not since the Cowardly Lion has an animal’s appearance been so at odds with its attitude.

On June 4 a black bear wandered into a West Milford, New Jersey, back yard, was confronted by a 15-pound (7-kilogram) tabby cat … and fled up a neighbor’s tree. Hissing at the base of the tree, Jack the clawless cat kept the bear at bay for about 15 minutes, then ran him up another tree after an attempted escape.

Finally, Jack’s owner, Donna Dickey, called the cat inside, and the timorous trespasser disappeared back into the woods.

“He doesn’t want anybody in his yard,” Dickey said of Jack in an interview with the Newark Star Ledger.

Unlike cats, bears aren’t typically territorial, roaming instead over vast areas that would be impossible to patrol for intruders. With a habitat that includes much of North America, black bears are seen fairly often in this region of New Jersey.

Full-grown black bears weigh between 200 and 600 pounds (90 and 270 kilograms) and measure as much as 6 feet (1.8 meters) long. Their diets can include fruits, honey, insects, acorns and animals as big as moose calves—a fact apparently lost on Jack.
