Frankie the cat
Frankie,
Infinaut #1

Welcome to the catalogue of a categorically cataclysmic concatenation.

The Infinite Cat Project is about one cat watching another (see below). A long line of 1800 cats so far. The very first Infinaut is Frankie, seen at left admiring a flower. He is the owner of Paul Hamilton.

If you'd like to add your own fuzzy friend to the Infinite Queue you can find all the details here. Or just take a picture of your kitty watching Chief, below, and email it to me. It's just that easy.

Scientists Determine How You Should Pet Your Cat.
By Katre Seamons

If your cat doesn't seem to want to sit still while you pet it, you might be doing it wrong. Yes, it turns out there is a right and wrong way to pet a cat, per a study published in Applied Animal Behaviour Science in late 2014. As the researchers from UK's University of Lincoln note in their abstract, "As part of its role as a pet, cats are expected to not only tolerate but enjoy being touched." They set out to determine how one should best do that via two experiments, which zeroed in on "handler familiarity," the cats' various body regions, and the order in which they were touched. The upshot: Leave the tail alone. That "caudal" region returned the most negative scores regardless of how familiar the petter was.

The Washington Post explains the tail area "is sort of a cat erogenous zone, and petting may overstimulate it." It further points to a 2002 study that echoes that caudal finding and says that petting in the temporal region (between the eyes and ears) was most preferable. As for whether you start with the ears or the back, the study showed the order of body region touched didn't really matter. One odd finding that needs further investigating, per the researchers: Negative responses were higher when owners, not strangers, stroked the cats. University of Lincoln researchers have examined the topic before: In a 2013 study they found that cats who dislike being petted but allow their owners to do so may be stressed out. (Another recent study found cat owners may be in denial about their darling pets.).

Free Kibble for Kitties

I was alerted to a web site called freekibblekat.com by Beloved Girlfriend. You go there, play a simple trivia game and the site donates kibble to needy animal shelters. It's free and you can play once a day, every day. They obviously make a few bucks for themsleves but it's clear that the majority of proceeds goes to the animals, so please stop in when you can.

PS, you can also totally send some kitty vittles with just a click at theanimalrescuesite.com. Just visit the site and press the big purple button. That's all there is to it.

Oh, and if you're looking to save some money on meds for your moggies how about a free 1800petmeds coupon code?

My Infinite Gratitude


The following is a relatively short yet very heartening list of those who have contributed in support of the Infinite Cat Project over the years. In lieu of listing the names in any intelligent way I decided to post them alphabetically. It's not a perfect system, as those of you of Polish descent get the shaft again <grin> but at least it helps me keep the names straight.

In case you're wondering, names in white indicate donations of $5 or less, while green notates donations in excess of $10. The single listing in orange is for a very exceptional cat lover who recently earned the prestigious "Quadruple Kittyhead" for her generous and continuing support. (You know who you are and I want to have your children.)
