The Outdoors Await!  How to Harness Train Your Cat By Laura Moss, Adventure Cats My cats, Fiver and Sirius, have always been captivated by the world outside the window. They spend hours lounging in sun puddles, watching birds and squirrels, and delighting in outdoor scents whenever I crack a window. In fact, one of my cats, Fiver, was so fascinated by the outside world, that he began creeping close to the door whenever it opened. Once, he even dashed outside to see just what was out there. Since we’d rescued him as an injured kitten, Fiver hadn’t ventured outdoors, so he certainly wasn’t prepared for the sights, scents and… READ MORE >

A TwoFur is Twice the Joy

Posted on Monday, May 13th

A TwoFur is Twice the Joy Michaela, a gray, green-eyed kitty was found in the garden center of a local Home Depot in 2014. She was terrified when she arrived at Furkids and was placed in a room with another shy kitten, a brown tabby named Bella. Shy kitties are often overlooked, so the two shared the same space for several years. Over time, they gravitated toward each other, finding comfort in each other’s presence.

Michaela and Bella were undeniably bonded, a relationship… READ MORE >
