With so many cat beds on the market today, how can you decide?

I have bought beds that the cats climbed in immediately.

Then there were others that they sniffed and walked away. Even with times of putting them out for a while and removing if I had no takers. Washed it up and when it was warm from the dryer they got in or if it was the caves, they laid on top. Defeated again. Hung on to them, hoping the next cat I get would like it. In the winter they were more likely to get in a freshly laundered bed. But soon it was back to their favorite. Sometimes the favorite was no more than a soft throw blanket.

Today there are so many kinds of litters.

 

Prior to the mid-1940s, cats did their business outside. But the more domesticated they became, soon some were living indoors full time.

Cats need a tremendous amount of down time. They sleep a lot and when not sleeping they are resting. Yet it seems, with “one ear to the ground” so they don’t miss meal call or anything else that might just need their immediate attention. And you can’t blame them for being alert to everything in their environment, especially if their whole life is spent indoors. This is their world.

Normal Cat Behavior

 

    • Is your cat super smart?

    • Can you train your cat?

    • Or are they even trainable?

 

Cats Can Learn

 

But I wonder if they learn by motivation or manipulation.

 

Over the years, I’ve concluded they are in charge of their own destiny. If it pleases them to do little tricks and the rewards are significant enough today, they will play along with the scheme. Tomorrow could be an entirely different story. Never count on trying to impress friends with your intelligent performing cat. They might do a great job of humiliating your bragging. Continue reading
