March.. Lamb or Lion?

Celebrity Cats Charm “Charm City”

March can either purr like a kitten or roar like a lion. This weekend kittens win out.

Felines leap into action as the Friskies & CFA Crab & Mallet Cat Club Show takes center stage at the Fifth Regiment Armory in Baltimore.

These TV celebrities will amaze the lucky audience with thrilling behaviors like walking a high wire, playing basketball and jumping through hoops. Trainers will share secrets for training even the most finicky felines.

Imagine you work for an emperor. Special tailors are making new clothes for him to wear, but as the tailors work they seem to be sewing into thin air.

The emperor loves his new clothes but you don’t see a thing except the emperor. What do you tell him?

Believe it or Not ... You Can Teach a Cat New Tricks!

Cats love treats, but what they like best is your loving attention. Teaching your cat these easy tricks is fun and a great way to give your kitty the attention she wants.

SHAKE - Sit down facing your cat. Touch her paw and say "shake." When she lifts it, shake paws with Her. Give her a nutritious treat and lots of praise.

WAVE - Hold a treat in front of your cat's nose and move it back and forth saying "wave." When your cat waves, give him the treat and lots of petting.

Always do these tricks the same way each time and give lots of praise. Your cat will love it.
