// FEATURE FRIDAY // ROXY

Every Friday we pick one lucky cat to feature. This week's Feature Friday Fussie Cat is Roxy! ––
Pet parent Melanie writes:

Roxy is a Diluted Tortoiseshell and is 15 years old. We met at the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland (Maine) in August of 2005. We were ready to add a cat to our family and this shelter was adopting out all cats ages 2+ for free. I walked through the cat area, looked at the furry faces, held a few, and Roxy (then named “Molly”) just melted in my arms. You could say she choose me as much as I did her.

Fun fact: She is an extremely vocal girl. She is known to meow at her humans for 5 seconds straight! She meowed for almost the entire 45-minute drive home from the shelter. In fact, since she’s been part of our family, there has rarely been a quiet moment in the house for the past 13 years!

Though she was originally named “Molly” when we met her, after I saw her feisty and strong-willed personality shine through, the name “Roxy” came to mind. Also, Roxy is the embodiment of “Tortitude”. She loves to tell stories, soak up the sun beams, let you know when she’s hungry or wants attention, and chase her 5-year-old Treeing Walker Coonhound brother around the house. We often say that it’s Roxy house; we all just live here.

Thanks Melanie for sharing Roxy's pictures and story with us! She's a lovely fussy, bossy cat. We're glad you both found each other. 🐱 😁 ––

// TRIVIA ANSWER //
The answer to Tuesday's trivia is the...CHARTREUX of FRANCE!

Very similar looking breeds are the British Shorthair (as mentioned by @brenda98370) and the Russian Blue (as mentioned by @k6ranch). Fun fact: Hailing from France, this kitty's origin is shrouded in mystery yet there are some enduring theories. It's believed that the Chartreux's ancestors were feral mountain cats brought in from the Middle East by the Crusaders in the 13th century.

Carthusian monks bred the cat at the Grande Chartreuse Monastery in the mid-1700s and it is said Chartreuxs were the monks' cat of choice due to their relatively quiet demeanor and muted meow.

Do you have a Chartreux? Are they as quiet as they say? 😀

Thanks to everyone that participated in our weekly trivia! Check in again next week at our new time, Tues 12pm PST, for more cool cat trivia! 🐱

The Siberian Cat traces its origins to the subarctic taiga of Siberia which accounts for this kitty's luxurious fur coat. 🐱

This cat has appeared in Russian folktales (such as "The Cat and the Fox") and history for about 1,000 years.

The Siberian cat is also known for its prized rat hunting ability as well as being hypoallergenic for many people.

Is there an international cat breed that you love? 😍

// FEATURE FRIDAY // JUNIE

Every Friday we pick one lucky cat to feature. This week's Feature Friday Fussie Cat is Junie! ––
Pet parent Sydney writes:

Junie is a 7 year old Hemingway cat. We first met at a PetSmart, he was there with a local rescue group. He reached his little paw out to me & I knew I had to take him with me.

He got the name Junie because I loved the children’s book series - "Junie B. Jones". The rescue also thought he was a she....Junie just fit him so I didn’t change it. 😊

He loves playing fetch & absolutely loves playing in his water dish! He made me love cats! 😻 ––
Thanks Sydney for sharing Junie with us! He's just adorable definitely love at first sight. 😍 You can find more pics of Junie on Sydney's IG: @sydbarcelona ––

// TRIVIA ANSWER //
The answer to Tuesday's trivia is... SCENT GLANDS (aka Interdigital Glands)! Shout out to @brenda98370 and @livelovevt (correct!), also @sbuck2355 (close! Say hi to your tabby! 🐱). Fun fact: Cat scent glands can be found not only on their paws, but the sides of their heads, their tail, and the insides of their mouth. Cats communicate through scent: to get to know a new cat, let them smell your hand first before petting.🐱 Thanks to everyone that participated in our weekly trivia! Check in again next Tues for more cat trivia! = D

// RETAILER SPOTLIGHT // NORTHWEST PETS

Starting this week, every Tuesday we spotlight a retailer that partners with us and shares our passion for providing the highest quality pet food.

This week’s Retailer Spotlight is Northwest Pets​! –––
From their website -

Established in Eagle, Idaho in September 2005, Northwest Pets is the Ultimate Outfitter for Four-Legged Friends™. Our love for our hairy and huggable Bernese Mountain Dogs Teddy and Willow was the original inspiration for our business. We grew tired of shopping at big chain pet stores, as we could never seem to find all of the high quality products and knowledgeable help we were looking for under one roof. Frustration turned into action, and we set off on our own journey to create a one-stop shop for the very best dog, cat and small animal supplies.

You can shop for your pets with confidence at Northwest Pets. We specialize in unique, high-quality products, including a wide selection of the best commercial pet food available. Everything we stock must meet the ultimate test of enhancing the lives of your dogs, cats and small animals. We are constantly on the lookout for exciting new merchandise, with an emphasis on items that are natural, holistic and made in the USA. At Northwest Pets, we don't have to make wild guesses about what products will keep your pets happy and healthy, because we use the same stuff we sell every day with our own animals!

Our team of pet professionals is trained to provide you with all of the important details about our products, and can help you navigate in-depth topics like pet nutrition with ease. –––

Did you know: Stroking and petting your cat helps to remove loose hair, which means less frequency of your kitty coughing up hairballs. 🐱

Also, when we pet our cats, we’re bonding with them by leaving behind our scent.

Have you pet your cat today? 😃
