Brucy’s hair loss

Brucy’s hair loss

Cat experts, I need your advice! Last weekend, I noticed that Brucy is losing hair. She is only losing hair between her eyes and ears but the loss is quite significant. There are no red spots, no irritation, no marks.. Due to hair loss, you can now see her brown pigmentation spots but that’s normal, right?

I checked her ears and it doesn’t seem like she has ear mites. She doesn’t “excessively groom” herself (that could cause hairloss) and we haven’t changed her food recently. She acts normally but you can distinctly tell that she is losing fur! She is only 2.5 years old, so it’s a bit early to be losing hair because of age.

We will see the vet this weekend but meanwhile, maybe someone has advice? She hasn’t been stressed recently so I really have no clue what is happening!

The Catastic MoMA selection

I am very excited to be going to New York next month for the first time and one of my must-see-places is the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). I was browsing through their website, looking to reserve tickets, when I came across their amazing online art-inspired store. Being the shopaholic I am, I couldn’t not share some amazing cat things!

For example,  I love this stunning Cat Luggage Tag designed based on a Michael Hartfelder 2010 print for only $8.00. And how beautiful is this red-and-orange, fluid birds mobile designed by C. Saddle and K. Komagata? I think its vivid colours would make it a great addition to any room.  Finally, let’s not forget about our furry friends – this designer fish-pet-mat is just what your cat needs!

Amazing, just another reason to go 🙂

Happy Easter from Brucy!

You may be wondering why you haven’t had any Brucy-news recently.. Well, as always, I have tones of work, so sadly, I have less time to give you daily news on Brucy’s adventures!

This weekend we celebrated Easter. Brucy spent most of her time chilling on the sun and occasionally trying to steal and eat Easter cakes. On Sunday, she decided to knock over a full cup of coffee on my bed and mattress – so Easter started off well!

Hope you all are well and also enjoyed the Easter weekend!

2048 – the cat version!

If you haven’t heard about the game 2048, you’ve been living on another planet. This web browser-game was created by Gabriele Cirulli and in just a few weeks became the ultimate world-wide on-line obsession. The idea is simple: you are given a 4 x 4 grid and you are required to move sequence of multiples of 2 around. When two same numbers touch – they add together. The goal is to reach a single tile with the value of 2,048. (Sounds simple, but I didn’t sleep for 2 days before I reached 2048!)

The original game is only browser-based but the application copy released by Ketchapp has been the top application of the last month!

This game is terribly addictive but for all cat lovers I suggest trying the cat version of 2048 available here.   http://2048cats.com/

Enjoy!

Charenza – shoes for cats

I am sure you’ve heard about Sarenza, the online shoe shop? Well for April Fools they launched the CUTEST website “Charenza” (word-play, as “Chat” means “Cat” in French), branded as the website that sells shoes for cats!! They even have different shoe categories – like shoes for kittens!

Sadly, this is only an April Fools joke but otherwise it would have been so cute!!
