We enjoy Maru in a box videos. This one had us laughing. Maru didn't like his Kamakura house. But then it was placed on his favorite chair. And ... watch what happens. Yep, he's a typical cat.

Graphic by KC of the CBThis is Ah Wong of A Desperate, Reluctant Housewife blog. He was originally called "Orange." He appeared out of nowhere on December 6, 2011 and ran into the house. He had mange and serious health problems. He was given a name, a home and medical care, but he died on January 22nd. He was once someone's pet (neutered), then he was homeless, and then he was loved. RIP, Ah Wong.
Last summer, as Hurricane Irene approached New York City and several coastal neighborhoods were evacuated, many pet owners were confronted with the issue of what to do with their pets. As a pet owner, do you have a plan for your pet if there is an emergency?
The Ad Council and the New York City Office of Emergency Management’s (OEM) Ready New York are campaigning to encourage individuals (including pet owners!) and families to Resolve to be Ready in 2012. Test yourself with Ready New York’s latest online tool, the Readiness Challenge, which takes users through a real-life emergency situation that forces them to make quick decisions at every turn. Once users have completed the scenarios, they can refer to various Ready New York resources to create an emergency plan.
We have been wanting to post on the NYC Readiness Challenge for a while but since we're not posting daily, we get a backlog and it keeps getting bumped from the list. We don't live in NYC, however, it's a short but thought-provoking challenge, no matter where you live. Check it out.
In an emergency, your furries depend on you, so be prepared.
