Monday I start my new job, which is great as paying the bills is always a positive thing, however this also means that my super fun Cat Chat scratch lottery ticket wasn’t a winner. That’s ok, I still believe cats are lucky, and I still dream of turning my passion for felines into full-time work one day. In the meantime all this thinking about jobs brought me back to the Dilbert comic strip and the character Catbert – The evil director of Human Resources.

Summer is just around the corner, despite what the cold weather will have you believe, and in anticipation of sunny days, here are some warm weather cat inspired accessories from the Rolo Store to get you excited. Owner Rowley and I pick the top 3 must have items to start the season with. I will leave it up to you to decide who picked what 😉
Hiccup by H2Z Meowgarita and Cosmopurritan cocktail glasses – $44.95 each
What says summer and warm weather better than sitting outside on a patio sipping cocktails? Whether you are looking for a gift for the cat lover who enjoys a nice beverage, or a fancy vessel worthy of your own best mixed drink, this is the must have cocktail glass of the season. You can choose from a cute Calico Cosmopurritan or a sleek Grey Cat Meowgarita, and don’t worry the glass is fully functional with a cardboard stand provided to sit kitty on while you drink. Selling point – you will never have to drink alone again.
SUCK UK Sylvester Bird Box – $44.95
If you are a cat lover who also likes birds, why not hang the fun SUCK UK bird box in your yard? While birds may face many outdoor perils, this is one place they won’t. Through the jaws of Sylvester awaits a warm, safe space where they can nest all year round and stay sheltered from the rain in the summer months. The box will host many types of birds and can be installed on a tree or wall. It requires proper cleaning at the end of each nesting season, but the bonus includes telling all the “bird” people you know that you now have a cat that eats birds all year-long 😛
UPG Disappearing Cheshire Cat T-shirt – $29.95
We all know cats are mysterious creatures often defying reason with their crafty behavior, sometimes disappearing and reappearing out of the shadows right before our eyes! Now you can emulate the secretive behavior of cats that you so admire without looking creepy. The cool thing about this is you will only wear a smile on your t-shirt until you step out into the sunlight and that is when the magic happens and the Cheshire cat appears! Sun activated fashion fun that any cat would approve of.
All items available at the Rolo Store, or on-line at rolostore.com
Yesterday was the Just For Cats Internet Cat Video Festival and I was lucky enough to get a ticket to the second screening of the completely sold out showing. I bet you are wondering if it was everything I could expect? Yes, our feline friends did not disappoint.
Cat-eared movie goers both women and men lined up in anticipation, and a packed theater waited anxiously for our favorite cats. We laughed, cheered and uttered “cute!” “Ahh!” and “Oooo!” in unison. People of all ages and walks of life came together to celebrate our common love and the cat hair on our clothes. I am proud to say that I have seen the majority of videos, but seeing them again in that form was like the first time. 🐱
Maru, Grumpy Cat, Lil Bub and the plentiful random clips from around the world were highlighted including the top 5 (no spoilers here as the festival continues across Canada and I think it’s nice for moviegoers to be surprised). Just For Cats delivers on all counts with a portion of the proceeds going to help cats in Canada, making it a must see.
I will leave you with one of the silliest videos from the festival, perfect for a Fun Feline Friday. Your welcome.

It also comes in a remix, and I promise this tune will be in your head all day.
Fun Feline Friday is a little frustrating at the moment…so far I have Hello Kitty, Pink Panther, Garfield, Heathcliffe? Stimpy, Sylvester, Felix, Tom, Snowball I, Snowball II, Cheshire cat…
Who out there can help me fill in the gaps?
