I couldn’t miss this new project on the crowdfunding website Kickstarter – One Fast Cat. I think by having a look at the video, you’ve already guessed the invention. Yes, it is exactly what it looks like – it is an exercise wheel for a cat. Forget about your cat feeling bored, getting depressed, destroying furniture and getting chubby. This exercise wheel promises to help your cat find a way to use his/her energy becoming more relaxed and calm (Brucy needs this!!).
According to the first testers (the owners of the beautiful Bengal in this video), the wheel does keep its promise: “Our cat now uses the wheel on her own several times a day”
Some technical info on the wheel from the producer:
Smart industrial design allows it to ship or retail in a very small box (box size).
This design also allows for it to be assembled extremely quickly for home use.
48″ diameter wheel protects your cat’s back.
10″ running tread provides plenty of space for feline footing.
Sturdy and lightweight for ease of moving it around.
It is made of Recycled plastics.
Run surface is made from a closed cell EVA foam to prevent claws from catching and allowing cats to run naturally using their claws for safe footing.
Can be cleaned by taking it outside and spraying it with a hose or wiped down with a wet towel.
Open design so cats can enter from either side.
How much does this amazing invention cost? If you support it on Kickstarter, you can get it for an offer $199 price. Sounds reasonable (if you have space for this wheel in your living room), so support this project!
This morning Brucy couldn’t stop purring while rolling on the floor and sniffing my shoes. Despite it looking a bit strange, I must admit that cat’s purring is one of the most comforting and relaxing sounds that I have ever heard.
As it is Friday and I am sure many of you had a long week, as the best Friday-relaxation-treatment I suggest you cuddle your cat and listen to her/him purr. And further amazing wonders that cat purring does can be found in this infographic:
I know that it has been aaaaages since I gave you any news on Brucy and you will be happy to hear that she is doing well and is being naughty as always! To cheer you up on this Tuesday, I decided to introduce you to this lovely post that collects together numerous photos of cats standing up. I mean, how cute are they?
A little Friday treat for all you cat-lovers out there – a blog that collects photos of “hot” (sometimes) guys with cats. The men are not always amazing, but the cats are always beyond cute! Good news – you can easily submit photos, so if you have photos of yourself (if you are a man-cat-lover) or of your other half, send it in!!
So visit HOT GUYS WITH CATS, or like the website says “These photos prove ‘real’ men eat quiche! Or at least have cats.”
I feel like I haven’t been giving you enough of Brucy-news so here a few stunning photos of my fur ball! She is doing great and haven’t been coughing recently as the pollution is currently lower in Paris. She continues to be naughty, trying to bite into my feet every time I stand up, but I am used to her silliness.
We are looking for cat toy ideas! It feels like she has everything – balls, mice, tunnels, cat senses, claw sharpeners and yet she doesn’t play that much with those. Any suggestions for great toys would be appreciated!
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!
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/
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!!
It’s been a craaazy long time since I published a blog post! Sorry everyone, but I just have a manic time at work at the moment but I promise to find time to give you news on little Brucy! She has been behaving well recently – she stopped waiting for me behind each corner and then jumping on my feet, she doesn’t wake me up t 5am and she stopped eating everything she finds! Brucy’s new passion at the moment is shoes! Every time she sees a pair of shoes, she starts sticking her head in them and rolling around – it’s really cute!
Brucy is also coughing less at the moment, despite the pollution being extremely high in Paris. This weekend, we will be going away for the weekend and will be taking brucy with us – so adventure, here we come!
And because it’s Monday and we need some motivation, here are some cute kitten gifs!
