Ruthie the cat

Cat survives wildfire. Sports new singed whiskers.
by Nicholas Reilly

They say that a cat has nine lives – but this lucky tabby probably only has one left after she survived the blazing inferno of California’s wildfires.

Debi and Jeff Brusatori fled from their home in Northern California last week after a wildfire burned more than 33,000 acres – and took beloved cat Ruthie with them.

But they feared that Ruthie would become engulfed by the flames after she jumped out of the car before they left – and the couple were forced to leave their home without her.

And while the family returned to find their home destroyed 5 days later, they were stunned when they heard a meow from their beloved pet. After following the sound to their burnt out truck, they discovered that Ruthie had miraculously survived the blaze by lying underneath the vehicle – with her singed whiskers being the only evidence of her ordeal.

In a Facebook post that outlined the animal’s miraculous survival, the US. Forest Service said that while Ruthie was found under the truck, it was ‘anyone’s guess’ where she had managed to hide during the fire.

Cat purr generator: All the purr, none of the fur.
by Amanda Kooser

You might feel the desire to cuddle up to a kitty, set your ear against it and enjoy the calming purr sounds, but that doesn't mean your cat is willing to accommodate. Thank goodness for technology. A website has replaced the need to please your cat in exchange for a fleeting moment of fluff-covered vibrations.

Furry Friend is the name of an online cat purr noise generator available on myNoise, a site full of sound generators. Happy Monday, cat lovers.

This isn't just a cat-rumble on loop. The site gives you fine-tuning slider control over all aspects of the purr. Crank up the bass for a DJ-cat experience or turn up the high treble to make it sound like a Predator-esque alien cat from another world. The "Animate!" setting puts the sliders on autopilot, changing the sound every 5 seconds.

For a more intense experience, open the same noise generator in multiple browser windows and you can have a fleet of purring cats for your listening enjoyment.

MyNoise describes the experience as "The cat's purr, without the fleas and cat hair!" It's perfect for people with pet allergies, cat owners who are stuck at work and dog-people who want to sneak some cat action on the side.

Besides cats, myNoise also offers rain, thunder, crackling fire, cafe, didgeridoo, farm and railroad sound generators. If none of those are geeky enough for you, you should try the RPG Battlefield or RPG Dungeon options.

You don't have to be shackled to your computer to get your cat-purr fix. There's a free myNoise iOS app for taking your digital fur-friend with you.

Much like the game Cat Petting Simulator, the purr generator is a pleasant accompaniment, an antidote to the honking cars and constant chatter in our lives. It's not as good as sitting with your favorite feline, but it will do in a pinch.

Paddington, the adventure cat!
by Michelle Esteban

RENTON, Wash. -- A Renton house cat seems to think he's a dog, and his exploits on local hiking trails is earning him celebrity status online.

Move over birds and hikers; there's a new cat in town, and he walks the backcountry trails like any hiking dog would -- like he was born to hike.

"We think he might be part dog," said Anna Wilson.

His name is Paddington. His parents, Bryan and Anna Wilson, got him at the Seattle Humane Society as a kitten last summer, where they instantly detected his courageous spirit and their connection.

"Kittens can be cute and cuddly and just stay there, but not him, he really wanted to explore the world," said Bryan Wilson.

This indoor cat seemed to yearn for the outdoors.

He went from the backyard to the local park to Cougar Mountain last summer and has been hiking regularly ever since.

"I thought it was like the coolest thing in the world, really," said Bryan.

He's done dozens of hikes, and averages about a mile of hiking. His longest hike was two and a half miles. When he gets hungry, he eats, said Bryan, who has a backpack for "Paddington's stuff."

And when this furry friend-to-the-trail gets tired, he rides his daddy's shoulders.

His proud parents have been documenting his adventures on Paddington's own Instagram and Facebook pages, which include videos of him swimming, boating and playing with dogs.

"He kind of has a local celebrity status," said Anna.

He's a bit of diva too, always ready to pose. His first pose was minutes into the Cougar Mountain Trail, when he raced up to the top of a seven-foot boulder and looked like King of the Mountain, holding court for about five minutes.

"He's so proud up high," said his mom.

Then he took off up the trail and struck a pose on a fallen mossy log for a nice long stretch. Later he climbed up onto a fallen tree and walked the trunk-plank onto the high end of the trunk, which was suspended 10 feet up above the trail. There he played a quick game of peek-a-boo with Bryan, who hid behind another nearby tree.

For Paddington, every day is "Caturday." Hikers can't believe his hiking prowess and can't keep away.

"Boy, sure is friendly. Wow, he's ready to go," laughs Ron, a fellow hiker that Paddington encountered on the Cougar Mountain.

Dan said he has a cat just like Paddington, but his Tuxedo cat is a "porch cat" and would be freaked out to ride in the car, let alone hike the back country.

Paddington knows what he wants and it's obvious that he gets it. The Wilsons think they picked him, but something tells us Paddy picked the Wilsons.

"He's the perfect cat for us, we're so lucky, that we picked him," said Anna.
