National Sense of Smell Day

Yes, it's actually a "day". It's an opportunity for teachers to promote learning about how the sense of smell works.

Did you know the domestic cat's sense of smell is about 14 times that of a human?

We kitties would like to take this opportunity to remind you humans to scoop out our litterboxes.
(Frequently, please! It smells much worse to us than it does to you!)

National Hang Out Day

Maxwell: I thought I'd take my #SundaySelfie today while hangin' out on mah Lounger.

How'm I doing?

Ahhhh, there's nothing quite like a good sunpuddle. Nothing at all.... *sighhhh*

Hope you're having an Easy Sunday, too!


We're entering this in the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by the kitties over at The Cat on my Head.

Head on over and see all the other great entries!

Sunday's SHelter Sweetie: Juniper

"hello there! I just arrived at Great Plains, and I'm still a teensy bit nervous about all these strange humans.
And Cats! There are cats - strange cats - EVERYwhere!!

Of course, bring a Tortie-Point Siamese, I'm stout hearted. I'm not going to hide quivering in the corner, oh no, not me!"

"(But, uhm...well...I might - might - get a bit snippy with you if you try to pet me too soon after we meet. A girl's got to be careful around strangers, after all!)

I would dearly love a forever home, though, so please be patient with me. I wantto be cuddled, but when we first meet, I'm just not quite sure I can trust you . You know, up-front and all.

Would you be willing to give me a little time? And to be honest, I'm a girl with strong opinions, a girl who knows her own mind. So I'm not going to be all clingy and mushy and all. You need your space every once in a while? I get that; I do too!

If you're interested in a strong, intelligent and independent female who will travel faithfully with you doen the road of life, then I'm your girl!

What say we try this "family" thing - today. I'm at the Merriam Campus of Great Plains SPCA. I'll be the drop-dead gorgeous one, hanging out in the back kennel.

Or just ask for Juniper!"
