I'd like to take time to discuss something very near and dear to my heart.
And avalanches. (wtf?)
They are unpredictable, devastating, and claim over 150 lives a year worldwide. (avalanches, not cats!)
|Just another day on the job|
What is CARCA, you ask?
Why, not only the world's first Canadian Avalanche Rescue Cat Association!
Yes you heard right, cat's are now joining the hunt for buried avalanche victims, proving once again that anything dogs can do, cats can do better. (Kidding puppies I love you too.)
If you'd like to learn more about the amazing work these kitties do, check out the CARCA documentary, available on the site along with snazzy t-shirts.
You can also apply to have your cat become part of this growing group. To open a chapter in your area, check out the applications page on the CARCA site.
So, if you're heading into deep powder in avalanche country, I suggest filling your pockets with Fancy Feast.

Till next time, purr on kittens.
***Thanks to Allison for telling me about these wicked cats!***
