We’re Talking About ...
SHARED BY THE CATSTER TEAM
1The Kitty Convict Project Created by the team behind the popular kitty-themed card game Exploding Kittens and Matt Inman of the online comic The Oatmeal, The Kitty Convict Project aims to turn more lost cats into found cats and solve the problem of the estimated 7 million
pets who go missing each year.
When people see a dog running around outside, they assume he’s lost.
But when people see a cat outside, they often just assume he’s a stray or
community cat. So, those missing pet cats never get reported.
The project encourages all indoor cats to wear orange collars. Why orange?
It’s bright and reflective. The idea is to make the color of convict orange an easily recognizable universal symbol of indoor cats. A cat outside who is wearing
an orange collar might actually be an escapee who needs help getting home.

campaign. — Annie
2Doctor Who’s Cat I love Doctor Who, so why wouldn’t I follow Doctor Who’s Cat on Twitter. (As far as I
recall, Dr. Who has never had a cat,
although cats have made appearances throughout the years on the
show.) So what does Doctor Who’s
Cat tweet? Wonderful illustrations
based on Doctor Who with a cute
gray-and-white cat popping in
and out. Sometimes the cat even
posts about his day — “Got up
this morning, had some breakfast,
hunted some butterflies, slept,
had some lunch,
slept, went to
bed.” Fans of
Doctor Who will
enjoy seeing a cat
hanging out with
Daleks, and Ood.
