NEWS & MEWS

Cats have often been called house panthers or tigers and now it’s scientifically true. Domino, seen above, of course knew all along). Researchers have succeeded in sequencing the genome of several species of endangered big cats and found domestic cats share up to 95.6% of the same DNA as tigers.

As always, we aim to enlighten and entertain cat lovers.  Our highlights this week included:

  •  Our post about Grumpy Cat and The Friskies Awards. Yeah, I got to hold her and swooned like everyone else.
  • We also did a darker, tongue-in-cheek piece, Is Grumpy Cat The New Self-Help Guru? at Boomer Muse
  • A fun, exclusive Q & A with the original celebrity cat, Morris.

When I got home from snuggling with Grumpy Cat, Merlin could smell her and not amused. She received a lifetime achievement award and Merlin feels at age 19, that he deserves one too!

    and here, all this time, I’ve been calling housecats baby lions — when they’re actually baby tigers.

    That 95.6 percent is a huge deal.

    Meanwhile, they’re sleeping on the job. Again.
