CatCon, the first convention held in honor of cats (not counting the Hello Kitty Convention, of course), attracted over ten thousand feline enthusiasts this past weekend in Los Angeles, California.

The event featured cat-themed merchandise, feline-inspired artwork and famous YouTube cats Lil Bub and Pudge, reports the New York Times.

There was even a lecture about the best method for getting your cats to pose for photographs. The answer? Tape a live gecko to your head - this keeps the modeling cat focused.

10 "Poison Pills" for Pets

Image

Anyone who takes medication prescribed for someone else puts themselves at risk of illness or even death - and this applies to your pets, too! Although there are many medications used in both animals and people, the effects, doses needed, and other things aren't always the same.

About one-quarter of all phone calls to the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (APCC) are about human medications. Your pet can easily ingest dropped pills or may be given harmful human medications by an unknowing owner, resulting in illness, or even death, of your pet. Read More

Cat Library In New Mexico Government Building Helps Orphaned Felines Find Forever Homes

Image

A "Cat Library" at the Doña Ana County in Las Cruces, New Mexico is helping felines from a local shelter find forever homes.

A few cats in need of "special attention" are brought to a room in the government building formally known as the "Kitty Kondo."

Tiffany Tillison, a government employee, told BuzzFeed that her co-workers prefer to call it a "Cat Library" because you can borrow them and bring them into their offices for a little while to hang out.

Tillison's cat, as well as about 100 others, were adopted through the "Cat Library," reported BuzzFeed. Read More

While most people would expect to find birds in nests, Irish pet store owner Henry McGauley says he recently discovered four newborn kittens in a pigeon's nest on a tree in the back garden of his home.

"Henry had heard squawking in the morning, and he didn't know what it was, so he went up the ladder to investigate," Henry's wife, Fiona McGauley, told ABC News today. "That's when he saw four baby newborn kittens."

The couple believes the kittens were born there and that they were only a few days old when they were found this past Monday, Fiona said. Read More
