Introducing Cat Faeries latest family member: Coco!

We found Coco on the wonderful www.petfinder.com and we are so glad we did! She’s a darling! And while they don’t know it yet, Cat Faeries CFO (Chief Feline Officer) Madeline Silver Belle and Coco will be best friends, ruling Cat Faeries with the touch of a paw or two!

In February Coco was found by the lovely Michelle who lives in San Jose and who feeds several cat colonies. One day at one of the colonies she saw a cat sitting on a fence, crying. She saw the new cat for 4 days. Because Coco’s ear was not tipped she knew that she was not feral, but had been dumped by some creep. Michelle took her home and named the elegant cat after Coco Chanel.

Fast forward to September 2012. We lost our beloved 18 year old Torti September 4th. And for the first time in countless years there was only one cat in the house! So the search began to open our door and hearts to another cat (or more?). Pet Finder is great fun for what we call Kitty Photo Dating! You can search for the species you are interested in and the breed.

She arrived yesterday and once she comes out of the closet we’ll take photos. For now, here are her Pet Finder pix.

 

Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld’s cat and muse, Choupette

Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel designer, has a cat named Choupette who he is crazy about. She has two maids and a driver. At the bottom of this posting from Fashionista are 16 pages of photos. They are also featured in the September issue of Bazaar which I got in today’s mail, and is the first time I learned of her. Isn’t she a beauty? Anyone know what her name means in English? (no cheating with Google!)

Have you had a psychic hit that a special cat was about to enter your life?

This is such a cool story. How many of us had a psychic hit that there was a special cat (or another animal) about to enter their lives?

Talking cat’s telepathy speaks volumes

In 2004, after being cat-less for about a year, Kris Eugene-Johnson felt ready to adopt and suggested to her husband, Ralph Johnson, that they visit the San Francisco SPCA. “No need to,” he replied. When she raised an eyebrow, he continued. “For a few days now, I’ve been feeling that a cat is on its way to us. We’re about to get adopted.” Crazy, yes. But he convinced Kris that they should wait. And so they did.

An amazing story about a lost cat

Last week a customer placed an order and made this note in the Comments area. We love stories like this!

Wonderful news! After being lost for over 18 months my Tigger has been found! He travelled 40 miles south to find me and was found less than 5 miles from my new home. He had only lived there for about a month before I put him with my friend at her farm to see if he wanted to be an outdoor kitty. Where I live it’s too busy to try letting him outside, so I wanted to see if he really wanted this. He lived in her barn for a week or so, then he disappeared. His microchip was scanned last week and I got the call–he’d come south to Maryland. Amazing! He’s tired but he’s my boy. The CD and Toy are his presents for coming home to his Mommy.

Kristy and Tigger – together forever!
