Things to do before leaving your new kitten home alone.
by Laura Barry

Adding a new furry member to the family is always an exciting experience, especially when that little fur ball happens to be a kitten that’s only a few weeks old. But when a kitten is separated from its mum and brought to a new home filled with strangers, the adjustment can be overwhelming. All kittens have to be left at home alone at some point, so here’s some tips and tricks that will ensure both your home and kitten stay safe and sound when unsupervised.

Find a safe space

When leaving your new kitten at home alone, the best thing you can do is close it into a safe space, such as a laundry, mudroom or spare room, that is free from hazards. Thing you should check for include glass objects, cleaning products, poisonous plants and small things a kitten could chew and choke on.

Once you have a risk-free space, bring in a warm bed, litter tray, scratching post, food and fresh water.

Tire them out

If you know exactly when you need to leave the house, spend some time playing with your kitten to tire them out before you go. That way your kitten will be more inclined to take a nap when you leave, and it will reduce their anxiety levels.

Leave out some toys

Give your kitten a selection of toys to investigate and play with while you are away. A fluffy ball, a ball with a bell in it, a mouse toy or even a chemical-free cardboard box with no staples or other foreign objects in it will do the trick. This will keep your kitten entertained and their attention focused on the right things, rather than clawing the flooring.

Make some noise

To make your kitten feel less lonely, leave the radio or television on a quiet channel with calming sounds, and keep the volume on low. You want just enough noise so your kitten doesn’t feel alone, but not so much that the neighbours can hear it, or the cat can’t escape it.

For extra peace of mind

If you’re really worried about leaving your kitten at home alone, consider investing in a wireless camera with a live feed that can be accessed from your smart phone throughout the day. Some cameras even let the owners talk through a built-in speaker so they can speak to their pets throughout the day..

Someone bought a cryptokitty for $170,000.
by Mark Serrels

Meet CryptoKitty #896775. Her name is Dragon.

She has chestnut coloured eyes, her base colour is "cottoncandy". According to her bio she "bit Rebecca Black once" and finds spying on neighbours "exhilarating".

She is a digital cat and Tuesday someone bought her for the equivalent of $172,000.

Yep, that's $172,000 in US dollars, or 600ETH (Ethereum) to be precise. Welcome to 2018.
She is now owned by the user Rabono.

CryptoKitties are essentially digital collectables that you can breed and they're valuable in the way that, for example, a rare Magic: The Gathering Card is valuable. Or a rare baseball card. Essentially, since CryptoKitties are on the blockchain, Dragon (or 896775) is completely unique and cannot be replicated. The people behind CryptoKitties are slowly releasing "Gen 0" kitties, and they are capped at 50,000, but they can breed.

This means that Gen 0 cats tend to be the most valuable.

Which is why Dragon selling for $172,000 is extremely strange. For context, the average price paid for a CryptoKitty is $60. The median price is $9. If you look at previously huge CryptoKitty sales, they have one thing in common: They're all very old. The second most amount of money paid for a CryptoKitty was $110,000 back in December 2017. That was for CryptoKitty #18. The same day someone paid $107,000 for CryptoKitty #4. Both are Gen 0.

Also both are among the first CryptoKitties ever created and therefore have a high value. Dragon is different. She is #896775, a ninth-generation digital cat. It's hard to figure out why someone paid so much for her. Even if she is cute and bit Rebecca Black once.

CryptoKitties informed us it doesn't publicly comment on large sales or investments, but told us there are a number of potential reasons for investing so much in a seemingly worthless digital cat: "maybe there was a personal connection the buyer had to the cat or the seller.

" Maybe they really, really, liked how that CryptoKitty looked."

It is a very cute, digital cryptocurrency cat.
