HOT OFF THE PRESS!
Oxford Scientific Films are making a documentary about cats for ITV1 and are looking for some truly incredible and inspiring stories to demonstrate just how amazing cats are.
It could be that you have an exceptional tale of survival or a unique bond, or perhaps your cat has a special talent. If you have stories you would like to share, we would love to hear from you!
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a summary of your story.
We just found out that right around the corner is a researcher looking into sightings of ‘big cats’ in the South East of England. These occur more often that you’d think, and Neil Arnold thinks that there may be breeding pairs of cats in the area…So everyone keep your eyes peeled!
While we’re on the subject of wild animals being where they’re not supposed to be, London seems to throw up more than its fair share of stranger beasts, too…Wallabies, fish, pumas…
Although recruitment of kittens onto this project has now closed, over 2000 kittens are now registered on the study, which aims to follow cats throughout their lives and learn about the effects of breed, management and behaviour on conditions and characteristics of cats. It’s the feline equivalent of “Children of the 90’s”!
Watch the website for ‘cat of the month’, too!
This survey is aimed at all cat owners and only takes 10-20 minutes to complete. There is so little still to learn about cat nutrition and what our pet cats are actually being fed, so the more owners who complete this, the better! www.vetprofessionals.com/dietsurvey.html
The University of Lincoln (UK), International Cat Care and the Autonomous University of Barcelona have joined forces to research how hand-rearing kittens is currently undertaken, in order to guide further research. They need YOUR help to complete a survey if you are currently hand-rearing a kitten or have done so in the past – www.surveymonkey.com/s/fab-kittens
