Rally Cat, one year later.
by John Hulsey

ST. LOUIS — It's hard to believe, but the anniversary of St. Louis' newest rally animal, Rally Cat, is less than one month away.

For those who don't remember, the saga of Rally Cat began on August 9, 2017, during a game against the Kansas City Royals at Busch Stadium. The Cardinals down, one run with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning, were interrupted one pitch into Yadier Molina's at-bat by a feral cat darting across the outfield.

There were smiles, there were laughs and there were bite marks, but a grounds crew member successfully swiped the kitten into his arms and into safety. Just one pitch later, Molina blasted a grand slam into the left-field stands.

Thus, Rally Cat blossomed from just a cat to a next-level idol.

Despite some initial adoption confusion, the St. Louis Feral Cat Outreach took him into their arms for a peaceful retirement from the big stage. Thursday, the outreach provided an update into the life of Rally Cat, saying he was having the time of his life with both his human and kitty friends — even if he is still shy around strangers.

But don't worry. He's a lap cat at the end of the day.

Mewsings, July 17, 2018: "Cats have 3 forms of death, when they die physically, when they're talked about for the last time, and when their hair is no longer in the furniture. " - annonymous

Mewsings, July 18, 2018: "Owning a cat is like owning a cactus. They lie motionless in the sun most of the time, don't care too much for your attention, hurt like hell if you touch them wrong, and no one wants to hear your stories about them on a first date." - SlowChurch

Mewsings, July 19, 2018: "If a loving cat owner was ever shrunken down to the size of a mouse, their cat would probably sniff them once, decide that the creature they were sniffing was indeed their loving owner, and then proceed to eat them anyway." - WargRider23

cats eat ice cream

DIY ice cream for kitty
by Isami McCowan

There's nothing cuter than when restaurants have an item on the menu especially for pets — like cat treats or biscuits for dogs. These perks are even greater in the summer when the heat is beating down on you and your animal alike. Dogs usually get the spotlight when it comes to specialized menu finds like this, but this new DIY treat finally shifts the spotlight: ice cream pops for cats. The cold-treat trend is currently popping up all over Japan, as temperatures in the country continues to crawl up and cat owners needed a solution for pets who wouldn't drink from their bowls. The best part is that you don't have to shell out a dime for this cat-friendly snack — you'll probably already have everything you need at home.

You won't have to worry about your family or roommates getting into this ice cream (if they do, they'll regret it): the primary ingredient is cat food. "It's not the same ice cream you'd buy, but by freezing catfood and some water, you can create a cooling treat for your cat," a Twitter moment explains. The only other tools you need are an ice tray and some toothpicks or popsicle sticks, and then PetCo recommends "adding water [to the canned food] and mixing it in a blender" before you pour and freeze. Voilà — your cat will be infinitely happy and you'll be proud of your Pinterest-worthy DIY. Also, these cat ice-cream pops are so, so cute.

Regular ice cream is a no-go for cats since they have trouble properly digesting milk-based products (the sugar, milk, and cream in the product could give them a pretty bad stomachache). If you've tried the cat-friendly DIY ice cream and your four-legged friend is loving it, you might even consider stocking up on the different versions of the treat throughout the summer. CANIDAE, a popular pet food brand, has some other great ideas for frozen cat treats. If you want to switch it up and try making the ice cream from scratch instead of using cat food, they recommend blending "eggs, meat or tuna, and whey powder," mixing the ingredients with a little bit of water, and freezing the snacks in small cups or an ice tray. Then, if you want to save some for next week, you can store them in a freezer bag.

Cats love fish, right? If your cat is a die-hard seafood lover, CANIDAE suggests opening a can of tuna or salmon into a bowl (juice included, but remove the bones). Blend the concoction, and then pull out the ice tray again to freeze and then serve. If you're feeling creative, you can even make a game out of the cat-popsicle and simply put a few cat treats in some water or chicken broth, freeze in an ice tray, and then let your pet enjoy scavenging for the gold. Lastly, you can make your cat's homemade ice cream even tastier by combining cat food with yogurt or fruit instead of water — they'll definitely appreciate it on a hot day.?

It can be truly difficult to resist those puppy or kitten eyes begging you for a spoonful of your chocolate chip ice cream on a summer day, but luckily there's tons of easy pet-friendly alternatives that won't result in upset stomachs (and a lot of cleaning up on your part). Most of the ingredients can be found right in your pantry or refrigerator, so you don't even have to leave the comfort of your air conditioned house. These DIY cat ice-cream pops will likely only take you a few minutes to actually prepare, but your cat will be grateful for a lifetime — or nine.
