Since I own the world’s largest agility cat, I’m always interested in cat agility training, and I know that the most successful trainers start the cats young. I didn’t realize how young until I saw this cute-alicious video of a 5-1/2 week old Tonkinese kitten being trained on a miniature agility course. It got me in the mood for adopting a kitten all over again. Enjoy!

I’m lucky to have cats with excellent litter habits. But try as I might to train them otherwise, they seem to delight in bolting from the box like Olympic gymnasts landing their dismounts, hoping to win points for flair. And after Tripper digs for China, the laundry porch could be mistaken for a quarry. This results in […]
Kittehs are often disappointed that most don’t live to the legal drinking age of 21. No cosmos, no brewskis, no vino. If you’re an indoor cat, you can’t sneak off to a liquor store, hang around outside and wait for a geezer cat to show up so you can ask him to buy for you in exchange for […]

At 12 years and 22 lbs, Tripp is a tubby tabby. And it doesn’t take a veterinarian or a PhD to help me figure that out. Over the years his swagger has morphed into a waddle. He boasts an impressive furchin*. I have to tend to his crusty butt hygiene because he can’t quite reach […]
