The strange habits of cats

15 January, 2018
Whoever has had the luck to live with any of us will know that we have some strange habits. Yes, in addition to being territorial, cats have many habits that define our behaviour. As a general rule, our extravagant behaviours don’t affect you at all, but it won’t hurt you to be aware of them.   We don’t like to be ignored Although cats are very independent animals, we love that you pay attention to us on demand. In fact, most of our antics are merely attempts to call your[...]

Why does my cat lick itself a lot? Is that normal?

1 December, 2017
Humans, by now you should know that we cats spend hours and hours grooming ourselves. It’s completely normal for us to lick our bodies to get ourselves good and clean and in good condition. What’s more, you shouldn’t worry if you notice us spending 6 to 12 hours a day on our personal grooming, because that’s what we normally do. You should only devote some special attention to us if you find that our licking is resulting in little sore place on our skin or bald spots on our tummy, legs[...]

Humans, if you get cold in wintertime, we do too. We cats don’t get along with cold weather well at all, and if you pay close attention to us, you’ll notice that we spend the cold months of the year in search of sunlight, the warmest nooks and crannies in the house, the radiators and any hiding place where we can find some warmth. Help us out to keep us from spending this winter ice cold. It’s really easy. It’s very important that you bear in mind how we’re eating. If you usually[...]

Do you have a cat that’s a picky eater? It’s your own fault. It will always be your own fault… never your cat’s. Do you hear what I’m saying, human?

Progressively more and more cat vaccines are being put on the market, but did you know that not all of them are necessary?

How to help your cat’s digestion

3 November, 2017
Your cat’s digestion processes are particularly long if we compare them to those of humans. Besides, you humans entertain that odd belief that what’s best for us is eating sardines and drinking milk, when the truth of the matter is that we cats are hunters and are much fonder of meat. Mind you now, just like you humans, not everything sets well with us, making it hard for us to digest. Although our digestive apparatus is quite similar to yours, our gastric juices are much more powerful,[...]

Is your cat overweight? We’ll tell you how you can help your cat be healthier.

20 October, 2017
We love eating, you know. But since you’ve taken responsibility for us, you may be letting us eat too much. And much less your own food, which, even though is yummy, doesn’t set well with us at all and can get us overweight. You shouldn’t overlook the fact that we cats will always be happier and much healthier if we keep our ideal weight. Another aspect to bear in mind so as to avoid giving in to the temptation of letting your kitties get fat is the fact that, if we don’t weigh what we[...]

My cat’s hair falls out in autumn. What should I do?

13 October, 2017
Human, are you concerned because your kitty’s hair falls out in autumn? Not to worry. That’s completely natural, since your cat is simply shedding its coat as the season changes. This shedding usually takes place twice a year, with the change from autumn to winter and from winter to springtime. Even though we usually shed much more hair when good weather arrives, we can also lose a considerable amount of hair in autumn. Don’t try forcing us to shed. It’s impossible to avoid at the[...]

Why cats don’t like getting wet

29 September, 2017
So, should I ask you why you don’t like doing certain things? But all right, I’ll try to satisfy your curiosity to see if you learn to respect our customs. That fact that we don’t find the liquid element particularly attractive has a great deal to do with our ancestors and their original habitat. Most of us descend from wild cats living in desert areas.

Thinking about leaving your cat home alone?

25 August, 2017
Due to the fact that we cats are very independent animals, it’s not unusual for people to consider leaving their cat alone at home for a day or two more than once when they have to make short trips.

What’s more, it could suffer anxiety due to the separation, since it won’t know when you’re going to be coming back or why you left in the first[...]

Bleah! Taking medicine is never fun. Just like children, we cats are more than reticent to take any pill or liquid medicine, but if there’s no way of getting around it, you’ll have to roll up your sleeves and get to work to make sure we keep the medicine down so it will help us get well. Before going and giving us just anything you may think up yourself to help us combat what is making us sick, I ask you to please take us to see the veterinarian. A specialist is the only human able to[...]

Pick up on the signs telling you that your cat’s bored

28 October, 2016
Sometimes I hear friends of my humans complaining about how their cats are behaving in ways that bother them. They go on long and loud about their kitty being jealous, being aggressive, territorial or vying for attention… but it never occurs to them that my fellow feline may simply be bored. As a rule, if we cats don’t have enough physical and/or mental stimuli, we get bored. This may be either because we spend long hours by ourselves without any other animals around with which to[...]

Keep up your cat’s dental hygiene

7 October, 2016
We cats have a tendency to form plaque and tartar on our teeth, hence the importance of your helping us to keep our oral hygiene perfect and up to date. The fact of tartar building up all over our teeth is very bothersome, but not only for us, since you will be affected by our bad breath, toothaches, loose teeth, inflammations…, and I could go on and on, but best remedy the situation before going on about more unpleasant possibilities.

Don’t let your cat have fleas

30 September, 2016
Is there anything more unpleasant for a cat than being full of fleas? Being as obsessed as we are with our hygiene,  having fleas running around over our backs is not something we find pleasing.

I imagine you’re aware of the fact that fleas are able to jump extremely long distances for their size, thanks to their having a hard body[...]

Why does your cat sleep with you?

1 August, 2016
Meow! I just love sleeping with my human! Although I must admit that every cat is unique and has their own special way of interacting with the humans with whom they live.

Perhaps you humans find the fact that we sleep next to you (and often even on top of you) to be relaxing and pleasant, but do you know what it is we are draws us to[...]

Do you have a cat? You do? So, then you can surely recall all those times when you don’t have a clue where your cat has wandered off to.

Why do cats lick themselves?

25 May, 2016
Seeing a cat licking itself is the most normal thing in the world. Besides giving you the once-over every time you walk by them, cats tend to spend time giving themselves a good going-over by licking themselves all over whenever they get the chance. But, have you ever wondered why they lick themsleves? To us, it’s like watching the same scene replayed over and again, but cats know that the reasons behind this replayed scene may often differ.
