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[...]

17 November, 2017
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?

We’re not going to make it so hard on you either, so that once you’ve turned us into picky eaters, you can turn things around and get us back to eating what[...]

Cat vaccines: Which ones must your cat have and when?

10 November, 2017
Progressively more and more cat vaccines are being put on the market, but did you know that not all of them are necessary? It’s important for you to rely on a qualified veterinarian to first examine your kitty and then tell you what vaccines it actually needs, when they should be given and on what schedule. If your kitten is not yet weaned, wait until its eight weeks old and is weaned before taking it to be given any vaccine. It’s very important that you know that a mother cat’s first[...]

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,[...]

Do cats really get the autumn blues?

27 October, 2017

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 cats 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. Coming into contact with water was something not only difficult but also highly infrequent, and the few times we had access to[...]

How to get your cat to use the scratcher

15 September, 2017
If you’ve gotten tired by now of finding your furniture, curtains, clothing or magazines all scratched and torn up by your cat’s claws, my advice is for you to buy a good cat scratcher and show your cat how to use it before your cat drives you crazy. No, we don’t do that scratching to be mean. We need to scratch things with our claws.

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. 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[...]

Why do we cats purr?

Purr, purr, purr…  I just love to purr! Generally speaking, every time we cats purr, we do so out of contentedness, because we feel comfy, safe and want you to pet and make over us. The bad thing is that we don’t always purr out of pleasure, because purring is also our way of letting you know that we’re in pain. All cats, no matter what breed we may be, learn to purr from day two after we’re born and, as you will surely have noticed, we keep up the purring habit forever. You[...]
