It’s very hard work being a couple of cute Japanese kittens on Cat Heaven Island. Time for a short power nap.

(This is on Cat Heaven Island, the Japanese fishing island where cats roam free and there are more cats than people. You can see other posts of pictures on our blog via . (We’ve posted pictures and links to more pictures before – see them here. These pictures come from the blog of Fubirai, a photographer who has been documenting the cats of Tashiro-jima Island since 2007.)
Friend of Cat Faeries, Aldyth Beltane of All Creatures Healing Network in San Francisco places kittens in foster care until they are old enough or socialized enough for their forever home. Recently we talked about how those rambunctious kittens can drive older cats to a meltdown.
What to do?
Multi Cat Household to the rescue! It’s all about acceptance, tolerance (oh boy, you can say that again), giving space when it’s needed, not feeling your space is encroached upon, feeling that family bond, and chilling out from just about anything which annoys the modern housecat.
The other thing you can do is install as many Comfort Zone with Feliway diffusers as budget permits. The feline delighting pheromone spreads calm and friendship throughout the house as well as buys you insurance that someone won’t start peeing outside of the box.
Happy Spring! And hey: spay, neuter! Aldyth tells us that every year, it’s the same thing… far too many kittens are being born with few homes ready or able to take them and love them. Come on! Spay! Neuter! Donate to your shelter so they can help pay for spray/neuter for people who can’t afford it. Let’s solve this problem!
PS – you can tire out kittens with our cat toys and allow those older cats do get their beauty rest in peace!
More cute pictures from the 1870’s…
Here is Downton Tabby is her perambulator waiting for the Dowager Countess to give her a push. When was the last time you saw or heard the word perambulator? Had you ever heard it before today? It’s a favorite word of your cat faerie, so elegantly old fashioned and so Englishy.
Snuggly kittens in a basket – I feel a nap coming on!
They are by a English photographer named Pointer who sold photographs to tourists at Brighton. To find out more about these visit http://www.retronaut.com/2012/04/lol-cats-1870s/
Did everyone have a nice Halloween?
Will Kim Kardashian be changing her name to Kat Kardashian? Boyfriend Kanye West gave her a darling white blue eyed Persian kitten because she’s always wanted one. In this photo from an Instagram post by Kim, she kisses kitty who looks like she’d rather be playing with her toys!
Nifty kitty in a top hat! Looks like kitty is at the seashore with a fisherman nearby. Perhaps the kitten will do a soft-shoe to attract the fish!
