Adopt a Shelter Cat Month with Foster Cat Lion #fosterfriday

I’d like to officially introduce you to our newest foster cat Lion. This four-year-old handsome fella may look a tiny bit familiar to regular blog readers. Some cat named Dexter isn’t too sure about the new guy and his tabby face. It’s okay, Dexter, there’s plenty of love to go around!

It’s My Big Bro’s Gotcha Day! #tortietalktuesday

Olive here for another Tortie Talk Tuesday. Guess what today is? It’s Dexter’s Seventh Gotcha Day! My big bro was the first of the Three Chatty Cats to join the household and it was in the month of June – the 20th to be exact. And did you know? June is the same month I arrived (but a year later).

Our parents used to joke that June was the month for new pets. Our woofie brother, Eddie, arrived first in June 2003. Then Dexter came along years later in June 2010. Then me in June 2011. Stupid Sophie had to ruin it by showing up in the month of November. So, now I say that us special ones arrived in June.

Catfe – a Cat Cafe in Vancouver

Tucked into the corner on the second story of a shopping mall between Gastown and Chinatown in Downtown Vancouver, there sits a cat cafe fittingly called Catfe.

Catfe opened its doors as Vancouver’s first cat cafe back on December 14, 2015. According to their website, “Catfe is part cafe, part foster home for cats, and a community gathering space for cat lovers of Vancouver in need of some quality kitty time.”

Since opening about a year and a half ago, Catfe has already adopted out nearly 400 cats! All cats at the cafe are from the BC SPCA.

A little bit of this…a little bit of that #tortietalktuesday

Olive here! Just dropping in to say hello and give a few updates. Mom and Dad are finally back from vacation. They went off and left us with Grandma. You may have seen Sophie complaining on social media that their vacation was 11 years long. But I’m calling her out as an exaggerator! (It was only 8 years.)

Here I am in my new box. (My old one got ruined during all the construction work.) This is where I hung out while Mom and Dad were away.
