COT When Cats Go Green
Target started eating grass last week which got me worried. He'd been chasing a lizard and I thought he might have an upset tummy or even salmonella as all lizards carry those germs in and on their bodies.
Later on Target threw up quietly in the ferns, and Au joined him for good measure. Now they are both fine again.
This Saturday Katz Tales will be published in the print version of the Malaysian national daily The Star, Weekend section. It's all about why cats eat grass. Check it out!
Also, if you are living in Selangor (or travel there) and are looking to adopt a kitty, consider little Byron here pictured left.
Byron was found wandering near some food stalls. He was barely more than skin and bones but this 4 month old kitten has come a long way. Today he is an affectionate, cuddly, playful and active cat with a hearty appetite. A severe flu during his street cat days damaged his nasal passages so his breathing sometimes sound like gentle snoring - quite cute!
If you want to adopt Byron, contact Alicia at http://petepicure.wordpress.com. She's one of Malaysia's independent pet rescuers and her blog is well worth a visit.
