Have you meet Mayor Stubbs? Does this sound like him?

What really makes me smile is the summary of the profile. Mayor Stubbs is "curious investigator". This is amazingly accurate: is there a cat that is not curious? I don't think so.

How to get a kitty manicure

Speaker: Tom

Dear fellow kitties, I am going to show you how to get a kitty manicure and pedicure.

First of all, let me show you my beautiful finger nails. My mom polishes each and every one of them on a weekly basis. Such weekly pampering is essential for a purrfect kitty like me.

Now, let me show you how to get a kitty manicure.

First of all, relax and get each of your finger massaged. I like to sit on my mommy's lap to do the massage, but Mayori prefers to get her massage in her favorite bed.

Cat Photography with iPhone 4s

It has been a while since Yunyao got her iPhone 4s, which is known for its "superb" camera --- "8MP camera with all-new optics also shoots 1080p HD video". 8MP on a cell phone sounds really impressive, does it? Maybe she finally can leave her big heavy Pentax for a while?

So she tested its performance with her favoriate model: Mayori.

First, let's test it under natural light setting:

"What's up?"

Mayori

"I am sad ..."

"I am really really sad"

It's official: Tom is a Nebelung!

When Tom (唐唐)was adopted from the animal shelter, his papers listed him as an "American Domestic Long Hair". As new cat parents, we were eager to find out his true breed. We searched and searched online, and identified him as a Chartreux, based on his fur color and personality. We knew that Chartreux is a short hair cat but Tom has long hair, but we thought Tom must not have been a pure breed. We always joked about Tom's purpoted French origin and attributed his love of bread and butter to his French ancestry.

Review for Canine Cat Scratcher

Updated on 09/10/2013: It's now only 295 USD, with 100 USD discount!

---------------------

As a cat and modern design lover, I am always looking for cat items pleasant for both the cats and my aesthetic standard. I had my eye on the canine scratcher for a while, but its over 1000 USD price tag made it out of reach. However, recently, I found that it now costs "only" 395 USD. I pulled the trigger w/o too much hestitation since I need to buy the cats a holiday present anyway. However, I was still a little nervious at the purchase, as it would be a huge bummer if the cats don't like it. But I really love the design and can totally see how it fit with the rest of the house w/o screaming "cat furniture".

Review for "Virtual Cat Toys HD Catnip Collection"

As many of friends, I recently acquired a HP Touchpad largely due to its low price. I don't really need a tablet, as I am sitting in front of computes almost all the time. My original plan was to turn it into an interactive cat toy, at least sometimes, so I can keep the two cats entertained while I am working.

Unfortunately, I could only find one game designed for the cats "The Catnip Collection". According to its website, it "is a variety of toys that will amuse and challenge your cat and its human".

The reviews seem pretty decent (4 out 5).

Easy Tuna Birthday Cake for the Cats

I was looking for buying birthday cakes for the cats' birthday. Surprisingly, although it is very easy to find dog bakeries, there seems no existence of a single cat bakery. Luckily, a single Google search online brought up many birthday cake recipes for the cats. I picked one simple recipe with my cats' favorite food --- tuna.

So here is the tuna birthday cake for the cats, decorated with shrimp with catnip garnish.

It looks very nice, but most importantly, it was an instant hit. The cats jumped on to the dinning table as soon as I put the cakes on it.

Review on Hex Bug as Cat Toy

I am consistantly looking for new ways to entertain the cats, as they get bored with their toys very quickly. One new toy I have recently bought for them is Hex Ant.

Review of The Refined Feline Lotus Cat Tower

The old cat tree of Mayori and Tom were bought nearly 4 years ago and has started to show its age. I have been shopping for a new cat tree for a while now. I need something that is nicer than the typical carpet covered cat tree and goes well with the rest of the house. At the same time, I want to get something that Mayori and Tom can really enjoy. Unfortunately, there is very limited number of such choices on the market. One of them is Refined Feline Lotus Cat Tower Continue reading »

Cat with Evil Eyes

Mayori is mostly a very sweet girl. However, she can have evil eyes as well. Look at the follow photo when she wants to hunt to the toy mouse. She certainly looks more like a leopard than a domestic cat!
