Why do cats literally drive us crazy? Simply because they are a mix of mystery and sweetness and give life to moving stories and sometimes really funny curtains. They quickly became real stars of the web.
Cats at Disneyland
Did you know that in the famous playground of Disneyland in California, does a feline colony live? Cats, even if they are a little wary of people, wander around the theme park and play a very useful role! Keep mice away from games! Just think, they are said to be the descendants of some cats that were found by Walt Disney himself in the Sleeping Beauty castle. Rather than sending them away, he decided to keep them to make sure rats didn't enter the rides.
The feline colony counts approximately 200 cats being cared for and fed by a group of Disneyland employees!
We have a lot of stories about cats! Cats who save their owners, or cats who try to help others and so on …
But there is a story from a few years ago that truly demonstrates the heroism of cats, and is that of cat Masha. She is a stray cat who lives in Russia and a few years ago she made headlines for an incredible fact. In the building where she usually stops, one night a child was abandoned inside a cardboard box and could hardly have survived given the severe night temperatures.
Masha who was nearby snuggled up on him, warming it up with his body. He then began to meow, so as to attract the attention of the residents, who went down to the entrance and found the baby. He was taken to the hospital and thanks to the intervention of the cat managed to escape.
Cats often make themselves the protagonists of moving stories about them. One in particular has raised our curiosity and we want to tell you about it. The story is set in Woodside, where the protagonists are a kitten and a gorilla. The gorilla in question is the famous one Koko, who passed away last year at the age of 46, became famous for having managed to learn sign language.
She wanted a puppy to spend the days with, so the operators of the center where she was kept, they gave her a kitten, called All Ball. Koko's happiness was indescribable and the two became inseparable! She showered him with attention, just like a mother does with her children. Unfortunately, just six months after their first meeting, the kitten was run over from a car. The void left by All Ball was unbridgeable for Koko. The good news is that Koko, in the years to follow, always took care of countless cats!
Many famous people are known to be true cat lovers! We can remember among others Karl Lagerfeld and his beloved cat Chaupette, who has become the symbol of many accessories created by the designer!

He had many and a dedication for them appears in the solo album "Mr. Bad Guy" in 1985, where it is written "To my cat Jerry - also to Tom, Oscar, Tiffany and all cat lovers in the world - to devil the others!"

The academic "we"
This funny little title, wants to remember the story of physicist Jack H. Hetherington. He had written an article, which spoke precisely of physics, which appeared written, erroneously, all in the plural. Now, being written in the plural, there must surely be another co-author who helped in the drafting of the text and this, however, had to be included in the article.
The physicist, in order not to incur the non-publication of the text, resorted to a particular stratagem. He in fact wrote F. D. C. Willard, which was nothing less than his own domestic cat. Imagine the admiration and perplexity when he showed up with his cat at meetings and debates?

To avoid this, some countries have imposed the absolute prohibition shelters to have black cats adopted in the days when preparations for Halloween are in full swing. Prohibition that somehow tries to save the fate of many black cats, who succumb to human ignorance!

However, it was estimated that only one kitten was able to deliver the mail within five hours, while for the others the times were much longer.
