Bet you didn’t know we cats have our own culture and we’ve also been influencers in human culture (we’re so much fun!)
Cat Culture is all about felines in human history, art, literature, and music, along with things we love… like music made ‘specially for us.
Here’s a glimpse…
- Cats in Books – Enter the many worlds of the cat in LITERATURE, like my buddy, the Cheshire Cat, in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
- Cats In Art – Our glorious feline forms have been immortalized in every kind of ART from cave paintings to modern abstract sculpture
- History of Cats – Our contributions to HISTORY… ancient Egyptians worshipped us but middle ages Europeans thought we were evil spirits – fancy that!
- Music for Cats – Yes, music made to help us be calm and happy! It’s different from yours
- Great Cat TV – Not to be confused with cats on tv! Find out how to entertain your kitty for hours
- Hot Cat Topics – The most interesting of all is where I explore controversial cat topics in-depth and ask questions that challenge you to think about them. Here are two… Cats Killing Birds BY THE BILLIONS…REALLY? and Flea Cat Collars (Seresto®)
There’s help out there from rescue groups and shelters for the less fortunate felines among us.
Find out how to tell a good rescue or shelter from a bad one… and how to adopt a human (there’s nothing like a human to spoil us with the best life can offer!) Rescue & Adoption
