Feline Friday: Suicide Reporting & Crazy Cat-astrophies

Today’s Friday Film is a reblog of the current post on Amy Shojai’s “Bling, Bitches & Blood”. The subject she tackles is one often misunderstood and so often the driving force that makes ill-informed people dump their cats at shelters or abandon them altogether: toxoplasmosis [tok-soh-plaz-moh-sis]. Amy’s post dispels myths and puts this nasty little organism in modern-day prospective, and is one of the easiest read, most understandable articles I’ve seen on the subject. There’s also an informal video interview with Amy as she explains the Truth about Toxoplasmosis.

Amy Shojai is a popular CABC (certified animal behavior consultant), and the award-winning author of 24 best selling pet books that cover furry babies to old-fogies, first aid to natural healing, and behavior/training to Chicken Soup-icity. She is the Puppies Guide at, the cat behavior expert at, writes features for AOL’s and Huffington Post, and hosts a weekly half hour Internet Pet Peeves radio show. Amy has been featured as an expert in hundreds of print venues including The New York Times, Reader’s Digest, and Family Circle, as well as national radio and television networks such as CNN, Animal Planet’s DOGS 101 and CATS 101. She’s been a consultant to the pet products industry and a host/program consultant for select “furry” TV projects. Amy brings her unique pet-centric viewpoint to public appearances, writer conferences keynotes/seminars and thriller fiction (including pet “voice”).
