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

How Many Litter Boxes Do You Need?

Well, the verdict is out…

 

I always thought 2 were ample. Even when I had 10 cats living under my roof, there were only 2 boxes.

Yes, ten. There were 3 adult cats and 7 kittens. The kittens used the one in the living room. It was by their den. (Bottom of the cat tree.) True, sometimes the adults used the box. But most times, they used the one under the bathroom sink.

 

Once the kittens were gone, I had one box in the spare bedroom and one in the bathroom. Even with 5 adult cats, it was plenty. Different house, with more cats and people. Continue reading

Review on Cat Sparkle Toy Balls

My cats have loved the sparkle balls I got years ago from a fabric store.

 

My first introduction to the sparkle balls was in a cat toy Christmas stocking. They self-destructed in days. Hence, the hunting expedition for a suitable substitute. The 48 balls survived the ravages of energetic cat play for years. Now only 27 remained.

What happened to the other 21? Not sure. The vacuum cleaner may have gobbled up a few. A litter box casualty that got buried. Didn’t get  scooped because it was washing day for the litter boxes.

 

There were 3 larger ones that Lily liked. They are missing. One escaped outside, must have got kicked out when we opened the backdoor. Are they under the washer, freezer, or dropped behind the bookshelf? For now, the 3 are MIA.

How to Keep Your Indoor Cat Entertained

Is Your Indoor Cat Bored?

Is your cat sleeping more than usual and packing on the pounds?

Time to make note of the waking hour activities. Is he/she begging for food or listless most of the time?

Bored cats use food to fill the boredom.

Challenge your cat’s mind with interactive toys. Even just a new toy with unfamiliar smells will stimulate their curiosity.

Cats love to explore empty boxes. Continue reading

Picking The Right Cat

How to know which cat to adopt.

This can be easy or difficult.

Cats can have unique personalities. Some are in your face and purring. Others are aloof.

The question is, if you choose the wrong one… will it change? Perhaps. Some can be an actual challenge.

Nice if they were the perfect fit for your lifestyle.

.

How to improve the odds for that perfect cat.

First, decide if you want a male or female. Reminder, an altered cat is happier and healthier. The earlier the altering, the better for you and your pet. Males will have less desire to wander and less aggression. Females won’t go into heat and be more content.

I’m an advocate for indoor only cats. Only exception are barn cats, they catch mice. Confined indoors their entire life isn’t an issue. In fact, they will most likely live longer. No interaction with other cats that may have fleas, diseases, and no cat fights. No worries of attacks by other wildlife or hit by a vehicle. Continue reading
