New Toy Review - The ROBO FISH

So I guess these guys have been around a while.  Originally marketed as a childrens toy. We ordered 4 of them  and while they did take a bit of time to arrive ( think 5 weeks ! - so have patience)
And I have to say EVERYBODY in the house LOVED the fishies !
 Everyone had to try to sink to steal the fishies. Super easy to activate - literally you just plop them into the water.

Some even tried trading their toys- for a fishy - nope you dont get away with it mister !

The one downfall  - is the battery life  was REALLY short. for 45 minutes we were enthralled - but then poof - dead batteries. Not sure if this is old stock , got zapped by the AZ heat in transit (always possible) or just a bad batch of batteries. The lovely part is the batteries are entirely replaceable - so once I go to the grocery store we shall have Fishies once again !   Check out our Facebook group to see the video.

I found them well worth the $.   In the mean time you can find the fishies here

A Lovely Kitty Visit

We just came home from visiting our long time friend and kitty show helper Debra B.  She is such a sweet and dear lady.  And we are lucky enough to call her friend and Kender Kitty Mommy. 

She has 4 Kender kitties including CFA Grand Premier Kender's Zima . She helped us out by showing this boy to not only his Grand Premier title , but to a Regional win in CFA in the 2012-13 Show season. 
And from his photos its obvious he has never forgotten he is to be adored by all !  

 Next is Silver , his name makes it kind of obvious - while he was supposed to be the next up and coming star a few years ago - he had other plans. So couch potato for him it was !
 And next we have Kelt. Who was shown a few times got quite a few points but alas decided if his brother could stay home , then too should he be permitted to stay as well. 

And newest to her brood is lovely Ducky - now renamed Kender's Sparrow Hawk. In his first show as a baby kitten, picked up 3 finals and some really nice regional points so we will be furthering his show carrier for a while.

More From Todays CFA Show

And a huge shout out to Debra B. who once again came out to not only support us but showed her new Kender Kitty Ducky - now renamed to Hawk - aka Kender's Sparrow Hawk. 

Debra has shown 1 of our kitties previously, Grand Premier Kender's Zima , to a regional win in premiers and looks on track to have Hawk have a positive show career as well. She did a great job of presenting him and he took 2 specialty finals and 1 allbreed final in his first baby show.

Today's CFA Southwest Regional Cat Show

We had such a lovely day at today's Southwest Regional CFA show. And want to give a shout out and thank you to all those who came to spend a part of their day with us and our kitties.

Canine Influenza in Cats - BEWARE

Please be Aware of this. while the dog community is being tragically traumatized by this up to and including even exhibitions/ shows being cancelled. We in the cat community must watch our kitties just as fervently. 

and quoted from the article - In March 2016, the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine and the Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory announced that the H3N2 strain had infected a group of cats in the Midwest. Additionally, they reported that their findings suggested that the virus was replicating in cats and could spread from cat to cat.

And this - 
Cats infected with H3N2​ display signs of upper respiratory disease, including nasal discharge, congestion, malaise, lip smacking and excessive salivation.

Siberian Nose Boops!

Anyone else obsessed with their kitties nose? I just think this solid nose on the white face is too darn cute and I must, simply must "boop" the nose every chance I get - gently of course. Sometimes Percy is not appreciative of the attention! LOL  But he always takes it in good humor.
