Welcome to my weekly mash-up of blogs, websites, articles and/or video–anything that strikes my fancy. It can be furry, bitchy, bloody, sparkly, or any combo thereof, but (one hopes!) always interesting. Today, the blog focusses on the feline. And oh! what a clowder I’ve got for you!
I’m going to open and close the blog with cat artists extradinaire. Wendy Christensen not only is a brilliant artist (that’s her painting, above), but a gifted and award winning author. Her book, OUTWITTING CATS, teaches you the secrets of the irresistible “good deal” your cat craves. Outwitting a cat means persuading him that what you want is also what he wants. You can view more examples of her paintings to contact her about a feline portrait of your furry wonders as well as getting answers to kitty questions in the book.
Those who enjoy bloody good thriller writing or aspire to do some nefarious plotting of their own, check out D.P. Lyle’s Forensics Blog. Doug’s an MD, the author of Forensics for Dummies, several critically acclaimed thrillers of his own–oh, and a cat lover.
Forensics and DNA research has entered the forefront of animal investigations. Just last month, an ASPCA animal cruelty case employed DNA evidence to convict in two animal cruelty cases, sending two cat torturers to prison.
Lottas ullisar’s Blog features all-things-cat, a nice mix of fun-t0-serious kitty content for quick reads and your feline fix. Check it out.
Drew Strouble is another cat artist currently featured on MUST LOVE CATS show on Animal Planet. I’ll let the clip speak for itself.
