    App to translate cat meows into human words

    An engineer is creating an app to translate cats' meows into human words! Hmm, I'm skeptical. But it might be fun to try out the app to see what it does. :)

    Feline geoglyph found in Perú/Nazca Cat

    MOD NOTE: We had three different threads going about this topic so we've merged them all into one. Isn't that amazing? I read about its discovery this morning. I didn't know about the Paracas people. Cats were important to their culture because they kept the insects and rodents out of their...

    4th of July and cats

    Just a reminder to keep your cats, and other pets, safe and secure over the 4th of July weekend in the U.S. It's always so sad seeing posts for lost pets who have been spooked by fireworks and got out. :( I know that everyone on this site of cat lovers already knows this. :) Please remind...

    Microchip doggy door?

    I'm looking for a programmable dog door for my mom's house. She'd like to have it read her dog's microchip, or collar tag, and would also like to be able to program it to lock automatically between certain hours so he can't get out at night. I have a SureFlap microchip door for our cats, which...

    Quarantine baking

    I've been baking a lot more than usual since the shutdown started. I made Italian Easter cookies for the grandkids. Then I had some apples to use up and made these mini apple pies. They were delicious. The other kids/grandkids got those. Yesterday I realized I had some bananas getting overripe...

    Goodbye, sweet Rico

    We lost our boy Rico on Thursday. We got the devastating news that he had masses in his abdomen and other things going on that he wouldn't survive. We didn't want him to face a painful death at home over several days, and we made the hard decision to have him put to sleep. We brought Rico home...

    Happy 4th Of July

    For those who celebrate it! What are you doing to celebrate? Not much here—hubby and I are heading downtown to see the festivities. I think there are food booths, music on the lawn at City Hall, and I’m not sure what all. If it isn’t too crowded, we’ll walk around a bit. Then we’re going...

    Good-bye, Hannah

    We lost our little Hannah on June 19, 2019. She had just turned 16 a couple of weeks before. Hannah was 10 when we got her, one of four kitties we took in six years ago when a friend died. Hannah’s other three tribe-mates had all passed on before her. She hated our three resident cats so she’d...

    Fellow Vegetarians?

    Happy World Vegetarian Day! :yess: What made you decide to become a vegetarian? How long have you been one? For me, it was a combination of spiritual and health choices. I had what my doctor called a 'nervous stomach.' I wanted to try cleaning up my diet instead of going on medication...
