Cat Videos: August 2008 Archives

Pictures_of_cat_house_on_the_kings_virgil.jpg700 cats and several dogs living in harmony on an acreage north of Los Angeles. The cats are clean, well-cared for and are all available for adoption. How did all of these cats get there?

The Founder of Cat House on the Kings, Lynea Lattanzio created a true sanctuary for cats. After visiting a local animal shelter, she returned home with 15 kittens needing to be bottle-fed. After that, she knew this is what she wanted to do.

She started out with 92 cats and the number has increased to up to 700! People call her and ask her to take cats and kittens that were not wanted, feral, or going to be destroyed. She takes them all, it is a one of a kind, no-cage, no-kill cat sanctuary where cats can live out their lives or wait to be adopted into a loving home.

The cats can go in and out of the house, eat and drink at 10 different feeding stations, climb trees, run, play and sleep in their cat paradise. You'll see in the video how these cats are treated, with love and respect.

You can donate money, time or items the humans need to keep taking care of these cats. It only costs $1 to feed a cat for one day, but with 700 cats, that is a lot of cat food! You can also sponsor a cat for $15.00 a month.

Watch this video, you'll be amazed. I know I've never seen a cat shelter like this before.

I blogged the other day about 3 things to know before you get a cat and a dog. And if you follow that advice you could end up with a cat and a dog that completely love each other. Check this video out - the dog is loving the attention and the cat is so gentle with the dog. Too cute!

Apparently this video has been viewed over half a million times since July 29, 2008. I'm not sure if this video is cute, creepy or just plain weird. I almost couldn't believe it the first time I saw it. Pay special attention to when the music ends. Enjoy!

This cat has talent! I've heard humans play that didn't sound this good!Make sure you wait until you hear the duet she plays at about 1:43. SHe looks like she is really listening for her cue to play. What a cute cat!

This fat cat is sitting on a sofa watching T.V. At about .40 seconds he turns his head to look at the camera, but he doesn't get up or move a muscle. I've blogged before about people and cats turning into couch potatoes together, but this is ridiculous! Check it out.

This cat is twisted. No really! check out where the feet are and the head, her body is completely twisted, her feet could touch her head, and she is relaxing in that position!

Cats stretch all the time to prepare for the big hunt. Stretching keeps their muscles strong and agile. It also helps find the perfect resting position. This cat is particularly relaxed, even after she is touched she doesn't move. Such a beautiful cat too. Enjoy.

A cat's daily diary vs a dog's daily diary...

I can't imagine letting my cat play with my laptop, especially my macbook pro, but this person is more than comfortable letting this kitten press buttons, start applications and bat at the screen. When I watched this video, I wasn't sure if I should laugh or call Apple!

This is a great video of the maternal instinct in cats. This baby rabbit named Bubbles was orphaned when he was a week old. He was too young to be weened and needed a surrogate mom fast. It just so happened that Snaggle Puss just had a litter of kittens and was ready to step in. You'll see her carry him, feed him and treat him just like one of her kittens in this video.

Image18_t.jpgI blogged about the recent Interview with John Rendall and Ace Bourke that the today show did. And in that interview, they answer the question, Whatever happened to Christian the Lion after the reunion?

The last time John saw him was during a trip to Kenya in 1974, three years after the reunion video. Christian was double the size, at least 500 lbs and looking very healthy. Christian recognized John then too! He was with wild lionesses and had litters of cubs. He had completely integrated into the wild. They never saw him again. And to the best of anyone's knowledge he went forth into that enormous conservation area and lived out his days with his pride.

There is a lovely video of the interview with Ace and John by Kerri-Anne Kennerley. They talk about their experiences when he was a cub. He was such a kind, gentle and intelligent lion. There are more pictures and videos and the pair reminisce about their relationship with Christian.

In part 2 John and Ace talk about Boy the lion who helped Christian rehabilitate and the days after the reunion video. They recount tales of Christian stalking a fully grown Rhino. A lovely interview, Ace and John are very eloquent and they truly loved their little lion. Please consider helping out the cause by donating to the George Adamson Wildlife Fund to continue their great efforts of conserving wildlife in Africa.
