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[...]

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?

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,[...]

We love eating, you know. But since you’ve taken responsibility for us, you may be letting us eat too much.

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.

Why cats don’t like getting wet

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.

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. If your cat is used to living with company, it likely will not be happy about your going off and leaving it alone by itself for so long.

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. Generally speaking, we simply love the warmth, comfort, security and great feeling we have with you being there, hence we sleep cuddled up close to your body. 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[...]

Is it normal for my cat to be sleeping so much?

23 June, 2016
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. Because it’s  actually holed up in its favorite spot in the house, lying belly up or curled into a ball but, in any case, fast asleep. A lot of people find it odd that their cat spends so much time out like a light, but the truth is that we love sleeping. We are true sleepyheads.

25 May, 2016
