Earth Day: 30-Day Green Cat Challenge

Earth Day is Thursday April 22nd—here’s a great way to kickstart the week.  Last year, Holly Tse at Little Green Cat issued a 30-Day Green Cat Challenge. For 30 days, she looked at ways to give her cat a “green makeover” and she has some really good ideas.

A few of my favorites are:

Holly also has a book, Make You Own Cat Toys: Saving The Planet One Cat Toy At A Time.

No Mouse, No Problem! Cat Loves iPad!

The new Apple iPad has gotten strong reactions from people—positive and negative.  Some people criticize that Apple is too controlling, but other people praise the iPad’s utility and intuitive ease of use.   I’m thinking Iggy the kitty makes a strong argument for utility and intuitive ease of use.  Now I want one!

News Bites: Gothic Kitten Woman Sentenced

Remember the “gothic kittens” story?  Holly Crawford, the woman who pierced black kittens so she could sell them as “gothic kittens” has been sentenced to house arrest. She won’t be able to operate her dog grooming business, but will be able to keep her current pets.  The judge also ordered her to take down the web site she set up to solicit donations for her appeal.  Crawford sounds like a real peach.  She’s been “arrested 17 times and convicted of shoplifting, driving under the influence, delivery of a controlled substance, theft by unlawful taking, criminal conspiracy and possession with intent to deliver heroin.”
