The Best. Cat. Card. Ever.

I was browsing the Target for a birthday card for my boyfriend yesterday when I saw the best cat card... And had to buy it even though I have no one to send it to. Because it is just that perfect.

In fact, it may just go down as the best cat card ever.

What do you think?

Meowing Cat Sings the Blues

With a talented daddy playing backup guitar, this pretty kitty meows out a few bars of the blues -- but only when the music stops playing, so you can hear her beautiful voice uninterrupted, of course.

Sometimes it helps to just sing it out, you know?

BONUS CUTE: A golden retriever jams out to the guitar... and frowns every time it stops!

Kitten Meets Hedgehog

Loki the kitten isn't exactly sure what to make of his new friend Harley the hedgehog, but something tells me Harley is even less sure!

Loki wants to play a little bit, and is pretty curious. Harley, on the other hand, just wants to take his bath in peace... which it looks like he finally gets to do after Loki wears himself out and starts snoozing!

Cute Crusade: 10 More Cats SAFE and Heading Home!

You like being a part of something special? Well, you're in the right place! Cuteheads are making amazing things happen again!

Right now there are 10 cats tucked away in all different foster houses and condos down here in South Florida, just waiting for their rides to their new forever homes. Black cats, big cats, tiny kittens and delicate tabbies and a pretty Siamese... We have a beautiful herd of rescue kitties, all saved from animal control!

This time, our fabulous friends at Forever Home Feline Ranch in Illinois have stepped up and offered to take in seven cats, all of which will find their forever homes very quickly up there! We are so excited! That's seven cats saved from that sad shelter... who are going to be off to the most wonderful lives ever! Hurray!

All the kitties heading to Forever Home Feline Ranch!
Then there is Pookie. Pookie was surrendered at the shelter and spent hours in this position when she got there, so sad and distraught.

No way we could let her stay like that, poor baby! Luckily, Cutehead Mary C. saw this and just knew Pookie was meant to be part of her family. She quickly left a message saying she'd love to have her... and we quickly made the move to bust Pookie out of the shelter the next day! Mary is in Illinois, too, so Pookie will be in the car with the seven up there! She's now in a wonderful foster home with Cutehead Carie P. (who fostered senior sisters Sera and Chloe!) and she is doing fantastic! Pookie is getting spayed today, so send good thoughts her way.

Turns out Pookie has a beautiful face!
Continuing our story of amazing friends, meet Puck. Puck was also surrendered at the shelter and his sweet, timid, loving face immediately caught my eye. I shared his picture, and then found out that Puck had some issues that would probably make it even harder for him to get adopted. He has some polyps in his ear that require surgery. I can't find the picture of them, but it is pretty icky looking.

Puck. This is the face we all fell in love with.
Luckily, though, we have great friends! Cutehead Tristin B. saw Puck's sweet face on our Facebook page, and set a miracle in motion... She said she would love to adopt him and asked how soon we could get him out! How soon? As soon as possible! So with the help of our good rescue friend, Nicole D., Puck was busted out of the shelter and off to see a vet. (He does need the surgery and Tristin's vet is going to talk to the vet that Puck saw to decide who does it. Hopefully it is not too expensive, but Tristin is wonderful and we will make sure Puck gets everything he needs!)

Puck loving on his litter box. Such a happy boy.
Puck is going to St. Pete, Florida to live, which is pretty close to me! We'll work out his transport after he gets his vetting all settled.

And last but not least, adorable little fuzzball Eugene. Eugene was at Miami Dade Animal Services (our first Miami rescue kitty!) with his two brothers. Both of them were rescued, but Eugene was left behind. Being a black kitten in a bad place like that was not going to work in his favor... but it turns out we have even more great friends! Cutehead Leigh G. (who adopted Zoro, Garfield, Count Blackula and Midnight!) saw tiny Eugene and couldn't let the inevitable happen to him. So she sent me a message saying she'd like to add him to her crew! Whooo hooo! Eugene will be heading to Alabama.

Oh hai. Fiercely cute Eugene here!
As of yesterday morning, Eugene has officially left the MDAS building and is safe and in foster care with another fabulous rescue friend of ours, Maribel M.! I have to tell you, Eugene's name kills me. Kills me! Is it not the cutest thing? So un-cat like, but so perfect!

Eugene right after he was busted out!
As always, huge enormous thanks to Cute's fabulous partner in rescue, Stacey at Good Karma Pet Rescue of South Florida. She handles all the kitties getting out and vetting and lots of the fostering coordination and tons more that I'm not thinking of. We couldn't do this without her!

Whew! Now on to the fun part. These cats all need rides! The maps of their routes are below. If you are along the way and would like to help out, please fill out this form so I have your contact info and what city you live in. The more volunteers we have, the more kitties we can help! (And if you've already filled out the form, I have your info. If you're along the route, I will probably be giving you a call! Thank you, everyone!)

NINE CATS TO ILLINOIS - 6 carriers max, so they fit in any car. Trust me! (Fill out the Cute Transport Volunteer form here.)

Two Cats Tuesday: Pimp's Happy Face

Happy Two Cats Tuesday, Cuteheads! Pimp is super happy today because he has the blog all to himself... None of that annoying Moo character hogging up the space and getting in his way.

This is my happy face.

I outstretch on paw really long when I'm happy.

Happy kitty! (Who also still has water drops on his face from the bathroom faucet.)
I'll try and catch both Moo and Pimp doing something cute this week so they can both be on together for next Two Cats Tuesday!

Cat Tries to Catch Water Drops

The faucet is a never-ending source of entertainment for cats. Sometimes they stick their heads under the stream and try to lick what runs off their faces and sometimes they just play with the water instead.

I've never seen this tactic though... Trying to catch the water drops!

P.S. The half marathon was a blast yesterday! It wasn't my fastest time, but I had a great time taking pictures along the way and just generally enjoying the whole things. Thanks for cheering me on, everyone!

P.P.S. See this cute little guy?

Oh hai. My name is Eugene.
He is at Miami Dade Animal Services and he is going to be SAFE thank to Cutehead Leigh G.! She is going to adopt him, so he is going to get out safe this week and we just have to get him to her in Alabama! We're on such a roll, Cuteheads!

Surprise Sneaky Cat Attack

This is the most un-sneaky, un-surprising sneaky surprise cat attack ever. Three cats are relaxing on the couch when one decides to go into stealth mode and start stalking his buddy.

His buddy sees him up above him, crouching down in hidden tiger position. He must know he's the target. Except he doesn't.

And just when he turns back around to keep relaxing...

P.S. I'm running a the ING Miami Half Marathon today! The race is at 6:30 a.m., so I'll probably be done by the time most of you are reading this, but feel free to cheer me on anyway! :)

I was originally going to run the full marathon (26.2 miles!), but I just haven't had the time to train like I wanted to, so I decided a month or so ago to just run the half. It's still 13.1 miles, and the weather is supposed to be gorgeous. Fun fun!
