Is the Aquarius cat a radical anarchist keeping pet parents on their toes with subversive cat videos or an inspiration the makes the world a better place? The age of Aquarius will last 1260 years ushering in peace and harmony. The idea of peace and letting the sun shine in happens one person, one cat at a time.

Layla Morgan Wilde/ February 22, 2016/ Cats/ 30 comments

Hello – Kon nichi wa – こんにちは。it’s me, Merlin turning Japanese for a day to celebrate Nyan, Nyan, Nyan or Japanese Cat Day. “Nyan” is the Japanese equivalent of  the “meow” sound and “ni” is the Japanese word for number two.

There’s much to celebrate today. It’s the Chinese Lunar New Year. In the U.S. we have Super Bowl mania. While grocery shopping yesterday, you’d think we were stocking up for a famine. Customers bought snacks by the truckload, treats for humans and pets (we’re down with the treats part) for eating, drinking and watching the Super Bowl. Football is not

Black Cat Lives Matter

Layla Morgan Wilde/ February 5, 2016/ cat photo quotes, Cats/ 58 comments

Updated 2019. When we first posted, it was before our book Black Cats Tell All was published. Some thought the #Blackcatlivesmatter stance was racially insensitive so we removed all mention of it in our crowdfunding. At the time, one of the emerging cat advocates, Kitten Lady initially did not approve but when I did her a favor, she backpedaled but
