Beloved cat to be immortalized

A group of people in a town in England have launched a crowdfunding campaign to honor a cat that once resided in a local supermarket.

The Just Giving campaign is seeking to raise about $6,000 to erect a statue honoring Brutus "The Morrisons Cat," who died earlier in January.

" He delighted children and adults alike with his cheeky 'cattitude,' investigating shopping in people's trolleys as they left the store, jumping into cars to investigate, sneaking down the pet food aisle to see what kind of offers were on, and just generally being there daily for everyone to love and fuss," Claire Owens, who started the campaign, said. "He had a gorgeous fluffy face and strutted around like he owned the place, oh and he loved the camera!"

Owens said that Brutus was diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease in 2013 and was put to sleep on Jan. 16 after his condition worsened.

Regulars at the supermarket in the town of Stanley and many of Brutus's more than 12,000 Facebook followers were devastated.

"We thought that a memorial to honor Brutus is only fitting, so that people can still say hello to him and have something to remember him by," she said. "Many people have expressed their wish for something to be placed in Morrisons, so this is what we are raising the money for, plus also for local animal charities."

The campaign saw a swell of support from the beginning, collecting $1,255 in the first 24 hours.
A spokesman for Morrisons told the Chester Chronicle he had been in contact with Owens about helping to honor Brutus.

"Brutus was much loved by our customers and colleagues and he will be greatly missed," he said. "We'll be meeting with Claire to plan a permanent memorial at the store so everyone can remember him."

Cats are now welcome at the Westminster Dog Show

The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is looking to capture a tough audience: cat people. According to the New York Times, cats are joining the “meet the breeds” portion of the world-famous dog show for the first time in 140 years.

Cats won’t be included in the official judging — progress isn’t a straight line, after all — and Westminster has included cats before, says the Times, but it was entirely separate from the canine festivities. This integrated “meet the breeds” show will begin February 11, and a few other new dogs have also been invited: the American hairless terrier, the sloughi, and the pumi.“There’s so much love out there in the world,” said Anthony Hutcherson, the owner and breeder of Jungletrax Abiding Ovation, the barrier-breaking Bengal cat who attended the press conference Tuesday.

“ Why just limit it to dogs and puppies?”

Are there just five types of cat personalities?

Cats may be known for having nine lives, but a new study suggests they may share just five personalities.

Dr Lauren Finka, a research fellow at the University of Lincoln, came to the conclusion after 'interviewing' more than 200 felines and their owners.

She suggests that the five categories of cat are Human Cat, Hunter Cat, Cats' Cat, Cantankerous Cat or Inquisitive Cat.

The ranging personalities are caused by a complex interaction between each cat's genetics and their experiences during development and in adulthood.

Take a look at our guide below to find out what which type of cat you have and how best to treat them.

The Human Cat is generally happy to share your home, your life and often your personal space.
It can be identified by its willingness to gently head-butt you.
It likes to make your lap their 'spot' and will likely knead you with its paws on a regular basis.
The ideal home for the Human Cat is a vibrant family home with plenty of faces to nuzzle and laps to nap on; after all, if they fit they'll sit.
The more human attention and chin scratches the better for this friendly.
The Human Cat tends to knead you with its paws and gently knuzzle its head into you in a sign of affection

Whilst most cats are born with hunting instincts, this cat character excels at stalking and capturing its prey.
The Hunter Cat can be identified through its interactions with realistic cat toys.
It will often clasp toys in its teeth while it frantically kicks.
The best environment for this adventurer is a home with plenty of rural outdoor space.
This will allow it to explore, chase and pounce to their hearts content, without the worry of urban dangers like busy roads.
The Hunter Cat is the most feral of the personalities, regularly interacting with realistic cat toys and showing signs of an expert hunter

As is the case with the Human Cat, the Cat's Cat has to be nurtured into developing positive relationships with other felines, which can often go against their nature to see them as a threat to resources.
The trick is, as with humans, to socialise them when they're young, exposing them to other cats and kittens.
You can identify a Cat's Cat through its willingness to play with and groom its furry siblings, touching noses and rubbing up against each other.
A Cat's Cat may cope better living with other felines, but even well socialised cats can be choosy about who they share their bed with.
This cat may be perfect for young working couples who can leave their partners in crime to run riot throughout the day.
The Cat's Cat has to be nurtured into developing positive relationships with other cats, but the trick is to socialise them while they're young

The Cantankerous Cat is more easily frustrated than his four counterparts and can be less tolerant to being handled, due to being quite sensitive to touch, their environment and being on high alert.
These felines require more time and effort to make sure they're comfortable when interacting with humans.
The Cantankerous Cat can be identified by its need for its own space to play, explore independently and preference for regular but less 'hands on' interactions with humans.
It needs to make the first move when it comes to being handled.
The Cantankerous Cat enjoys time on its own, and will explore independently without any human input

The Inquisitive Cat can be a keen investigator, sniffing around anything and anyone unfamiliar.
But this inquisitiveness is a combination of DNA and exposure to new sights, smells and sounds from a young age.
The Inquisitive Cat can be identified by its eagerness to explore and investigate anything new in their environment.
It could cope well in a home that sees new people coming and going, or even as an office cat.
But be warned, it'll get into every box, bag, handbag and lap that enters its domain.
