New Scratch Mat!

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

This week the humans finally took the hint and replaced our old and destroyed scratch mat.

Yeah, that was about time!

Yup, that’s for sure!

Here is a video of me testing out the new one (the old one is on the right, about to be thrown away):

These ignorant humans think that we cats only scratch to sharpen our claws. But little do they know…

FUN FACT:

When cats leave scratch marks outside these visual markers show approaching cats that they’re entering an area where another cat lives. Scratching also creates a chemical signal. There are scent glands in the paw pads that release pheromones as the cat scratches. Any cat who comes close will get valuable information about the cat who did the scratching.

Bigger Is Better

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

Zoe keeps saying that the only thing that would make us better is if we were the size of lions! So I made her wish come true!

Great photoshopping skills Sasha!

Oh, and speaking of great things! Just this week we for the first time started to scratch the second scratching mat! Zoe’s dad had to take down the first one because it was literally falling to bits.

This is a video by Ravi (he is a Norwegian musician). It is really cool because it is in sign language and Zoe got to be in it. See if you can find her in the choir! A lot of people in the video are deaf:
