This story of devotion to cat welfare comes from The Dodo: click on the screenshot to read:
The massive construction project came after Derek Roche’s girlfriend got a cat, and he fell in love with it. Then there were two more cats, and then a “play space”:
When Jellli suddenly started having health issues, she became more reserved and hesitant, and Roche knew that an outdoor play space was more important than ever to help her cope with her issues and gain some of her confidence back. Roche and his girlfriend adopted two more cats who also loved being outside, which sealed the deal, and Roche officially began working on building his cats the coolest outdoor play space ever.
From the moment they saw it, Jellli and her brother Smudge absolutely adored their new outdoor space. Their sister Penny took a few extra days to warm up to it, but now she loves it, and is probably out there the most out of the three. They love spending all day playing out there together and taking naps in the various corners, and Roche is so glad that all his hard work paid off.
Well, so be it. These are people who love their moggies!
Here’s a video tale of Dr. Leon Avogado, a stray kitten who wandered into some law offices in Brazil and didn’t want to leave. Some sourpusses complained about a stray cat in the building, whereupon the law offices appointed the kitten as The Official Greeter, complete with an ID badge. Then he got a promotion and was named Dr. Leon Avogato (Dr. Leon Lawyer).
And of course Dr. Leon has his own Instagram page; click screenshot to go there (the translation is “I’m Leon, the Lawyer hired by OAB / AP. At the request of the fans we created our profile. Help our Institute to strengthen animal protection NGOs.”
Here’s Leon’s official symbol on a request for donations to Leon’s upcoming animal rescue institute (I like the black nose stripe, and Leon is clearly part or fully Siamese):
I’m not exactly sure what Cyberpunk is, but it’s the theme or format of a new video game from Annapurna. Read about it by clicking on the link below from GameSpot:
The announcement is brief (below), but you can watch the trailer (also below):
During Sony’s PlayStation 5 reveal event, Annapurna Interactive showed off its next game, Stray. It’s apparently set in a post-human world where cats have survived–and you happen to play as one. The trailer showed off an adorable feline in the rusted, clanking world of robots. It’s coming in 2021.
The cinematic trailer didn’t give many details, but it gave us a good idea of the feel of the world. The cat appears to be wearing a backpack-like harness.
