Carnival of the Cats #175
Hello, welcome to the 175th edition of the Carnival of the Cats. I am Indigo and I've come out of hiding long enough to introduce this week's round-up.
Purrs and Prayers
Rafe of No Deep Thoughts is worse and is being treated with antibiotics and fluids. We're sorry to hear it and hope he's feeling better really soon!
Zed Monster and Braum of Bad Kitty Cats are in need of some purrs too. Zed is missing more of his tail and Braum isn't feeling well. We hope they are both much better very soon and that Zed stops dropping off parts of his tail!
Rahel of Elms in the Yard is having a furry fundraiser to help defer the cost of treating the Lady in Red's health issues. Please help if you can!

When not avoiding the camera, cats can take on the most interesting expressions. Check out Hobbes at Dolphin's Dock.
Groomed or not, kittens are always so photogenic !

Hoo boy! We think our kitty cats are lovely, handsome, regal etc and photogenic as they are. The kitties at Hello Kitty Hell look really pissed and who can blame them?
