Jackson Galaxyexplains why everything can seem to be going fine and cuddly when your cat suddenly turns mean.
What he calls the “finger nose” actually works great for scratching too, if you go slow and are observant your cat will guide you to where they want skritches, for how long they want them, then where next, just like someone saying “Ohhh, up a little. A bit harder.” and will love you for it!
The Mysterious Lives Of Cats Captured In Black And White Photography
Today, August 8th, is International Cat Day, and we just couldn’t let the opportunity pass without mentioning it. Every day is cat day on the Internet, so we decided that we’d bring a bit of class back to the cat pic with a list of mysterious and classy black and white cat photos.
Smokey Bear as a Cub with Judy Bell. USDA Forest Service. In 1950, some careless person started the terrible Capitan Gap forest fire on the Lincoln National Forest in New Mexico. When a strong wind suddenly swept the fire toward a group of the courageous firefighters, 25 of them had to run to a rock slide, lay face down, and cover their faces with wet handkerchiefs to escape the deadly flames. The emptied their canteens over their clothes and swatted burning embers from each other’s backs. Finally, the fire passed and the smoke cleared. The only living thing those firefighters saw was a badly burned bear cub clinging to a blackened tree. They took the little bear to a ranger station to tend to its burns. He was named “Smokey” after the original famous poster of Smokey Bear. [x]
