The Tactile Cat (Pt. 2)

Once we understand the reasons why cats like being petted, the next step is to use it for bonding purposes.  Not all cats will bond with us.  Some will bond with one person in the household and not others.  Nobody can predict who a cat will choose to bond with.  But when they do, the result can be quite striking.

 

As predators, cats evaluate each contact they make, in degrees of danger. Even when encountering a mouse for the first time, a cat will approach it with caution. …

History & Superstition Surrounding the Black Cat

Halloween is rapidly approaching and decorations including black cats abound.  But how did black cats become associated with such a scary time of year?  The fact is, from the times of the ancient Egyptians, cats have been revered in many cultures of the world and even given god-like status in some. In the British Isles, China and Japan, the black cats has been seen as positive symbols of prosperity, fertility and luck while in Europe they were associated with evil.  So why such a disparity? …

Black Cats, Witches and Lord Byron

Today, while attending a wonderful poetry event at the Gillis Branch librarian Fresno, I was momentarily distracted by the display one of the librarians had put up of a black cat with its back arched.

It’s nearly Halloween, and this is the time when the more mysterious side of our feline friends is celebrated.  Inky felines abound, as stuffed animals, Halloween decorations, and in Halloween-themed cartoons and films.

Yet, while our image of the Chat Noir at Halloween is now…

Kitten Angels

One of the kittens died, or rather is dying now. I have been checking on the kittens outside of my house every night and they seemed to be doing good. Tonight it was a bit colder and it stormed. I didnt even want to go out and look at them but I finally did about an hour ago. Well, Im turning to u guys because I need all the support I can get. When I went out I knew it was bad. The kittens looked really wet and not comfortable at all. And then I realized that one was missing. As I went to walk… Continue

The Body as Cat Sign Language

We cat lovers have countless tales of how our kitties use their tails, paws and claws to let us know things! Body language is one of most important aspects of feline to human communication. In fact, cats use their bodies to create a type of sign language, according to the Arizona Humane Society.

“Domestic cats have advanced far beyond their wild ancestors in the capacity to develop new forms of social organization and communication. They use their bodies and facial expressions to…

Cat Intellegence

Cats are much more intelligent that many owners realize, let alone understand.  Keeping in mind that cats can't stack boxes to get to a banana (which is a measure of how well we humans understand abstract concepts), they can solve rudimentary problems.  That's right!  Cats are problem solvers.

 

Example #1:  When I want to let the cats go out in the back yard, I open the sliding glass patio door about 1 foot.  They can come and go at will.  One day I was having trouble with…

Cats and water...

Ok, so i posted a blog a few weeks back about how my cats are fed milk all the time because my parents think they only like milk, and they wont drink water,

Ive bought the cats bottled water, to drink especially, ive been placing it down for them..

And it seems everytime i go back to the kitchen, its been swapped for milk again.

I keep saying to my parents, leave the water there to give it a chance, or keep refreshing it so its new and fresh for them to drink, but they…

Funny Cat Sayings!

1. There is no snooze button on a cat who wants breakfast.

2. I got rid of my husband and kids. The cat's were allergic.

The Tactile Cat

Anyone who has owned a cat knows that they, for the most part, enjoy human contact.  Some enjoy it so much they will do whatever they think is necessary to attract your attention so they can get it. When I was a young boy, our cat "Friskey" used to jump on the card table and lay down in the middle of our card games.  It was a bit more troublesome when she walked through the chess game between my mom and I sending the pieces flying or rolling off the table. So why do cats like the attention…

Cat Communicators: How the Cat's Meow is Just That to Us Humans!

In my last blog, I wrote about how cats are much more giving and altruistic beings than we could ever imagine. This time, I want to talk about how our cats communicate with us.

To the casual observer, a cat’s meow is just that: The vocalization of a small, furry mammal. But not all meows, mews, and mows are created alike. Researchers are finding that cat communication is much more sophisticated than previously thought.

 In fact, cats are masters of using the meow to get exactly…

was BORN a cat girl and grew into a cat Lady

The first cat I can remember having was Boots, a male tuxedo cat we got when I was about 5 years old, that was in the early 60's and cats were not always spayed or neutered, so Boots, let's just saying was a Cat-about-town or neighborhood, There is a story that has been told in our family about Boots for years, and was just recently retold at my Mother's funeral service, that a friend of our who went to our church and live on our street, and had a female cat. They brought their female cat's…
