Cats are very defensive and particular about their territory. They do not like other animals invading their homes. They do not like other animals like rats, dogs or birds etc disturbing them so if you have other pets at home then you need to make special arrangements so that they can stay together with the cat.
I squatted on the brick floor of the sunroom, just off the living room, and peered out under the slightly raised wooden blinds of the French doors facing the front door. O if only I had a camera handy … O if only it were bright enough out there for a picture if I had my camera handy. Drat!
Iams and Science Diet have special formulas, as do more commercial brands of cats-life.com. These contain ingredients that facilitate elimination and are intended to be fed to cats exclusively, not just when you suspect a problem.
Empty capped bottle well washed and cleaned with soap can be a toy with little imagination. Once it is dry, slip in some jungle bells inside; cap it firmly or else close the mouth with a tape. Do not be disheartened if jingle bells are not available. There is alternative in the form of cereal, rice, arid beans, macaroni, or other similar noise producing household things. All have the same impact. Present it to the cat for frolic.
If you currently own an adult cat who’s frightened to death of people, the best way to help her/him unwind around guests is to coax her/him to draw close to them bit by bit and give her/him plenty of rewards along the way.
According to studies, pets do not judge or criticize us. Really? I have been a pet owner for most of my life and I beg to differ. I have certainly detected disapproval on my pets’ faces. This usually comes after a particularly amorous evening with my husband that they have been witness to (as if I invited them to watch). In the morning when I step out of the shower and into the bedroom, they are all lined up outside the bathroom door. They watch in amazement as I try to get dressed for the day. I know that I have heard the sound “eww” when my back was turned. Why do I feel the need to apologize to them anyway? It is not my fault I do not have the rock hard body of a 20 year old anymore.
These cat names are not all that common and you will look like quite the intellectual when you tell your friends the source of your kitten’s new name. Don’t worry; the black lab doesn’t read much and he will not “know” how much effort you put into naming Muessa.
