Happy New Year! As we say goodbye to 2022, many people will be looking back over the last 12 months, and ruminating on various high and low points. Actually, our feline pals also have a few things worth recapping. A local vet lists some of them below.
The World Cup has gone to the cats! This year, two British players made headlines after befriending a stray cat at their training camp in Al Wakrah, Dubai. The kitty, whom players affectionately named Dave, was adopted by Manchester City’s Kyle Walker and John Stones, and is now presumably living it up as a celebrekitty.
In Columbus, Ohio, cat lovers are rallying to add a special license plate option: ‘Weirdo Cat Lovers Of Cleveland.’ Proceeds would go to a kitty charity, Weirdo Cat Lovers Of Cleveland, which provides emergency veterinary fund help and supports TNR practices. That’s a pretty worthy cause to support!
Fluffy has apparently been trying to get a pawhold in the digital currency market. In one of the latest viral TikTok trends, users exchange a new cryptocurrency known as Dabloons. What does this have to do with our feline friends? The Dabloon—which is loosely named after the doubloon, a Spanish coin—features cat pictures.
We have another story out of Ohio: this one is about a cute furball named Otis, who retired from his official position as bookstore kitty at Loganberry Books after 14 years. The beloved feline charmed many hearts over the course of his career, and is looking forward to a retirement that will probably consist mostly of naps.
A California woman was thrilled to be reunited with her long-lost cat, Lily, who had been missing for a whopping six years. This remarkable reunion is credited to a microchip. Microchips have brought many wayward kitties back to their worried humans. If you haven’t had your pet microchipped yet, this is a great reminder to do so!
If the internet has revealed anything about human nature, it’s probably the fact that we’re collectively obsessed with cats. One Instagram account is the purrfect demonstration of that. The page, Koty Vezde, is a big hit with kitty lovers: the artist puts Fluffy’s face on pretty much everything, from giraffes to llamas.
