MY Cats Give Me Joy, Peace and Love

Holding and patting your cat can put you in a peaceful place. Watching a cat playing and frolicking along and having a good time outdoors in nature is very peaceful and relaxing. A cat sleeping contentedly or cats cleaning each other is peaceful indeed. Mother cats show great love toward their kittens by nursing them and licking them clean and letting their kittens play with their tail. Cats give you joy when they meet you at the door when you come home from work. Just having a cat sit on your lap lowers your blood pressure and puts you in a better frame of mind after a hard day.

Cats love you unconditionally. Cats follow you through the house and they keep a keen eye on what you are up to in your home. My cats entertain me with their antics. It is fun to watch a cat chase a ball, laser light, their tail or a robotic toy through your house. Cats seem to know when you are not feeling well and they will stay close to you 24/7. Cats have many comforting qualities such as their sweet purrs and their tender touch of their paw on your arm or hand.

Cats love their owners that treat them right and fairly. Cats have waken up their family to alert them to a fire, gas leak and a severe storm such as a tornado. My Siamese cat that I had when my Mother died meowed mournfully at the edge of the bathtub for a week after my Mother died.

Cats become small little family members that we love and adore just as much as they love and adore us. Cats give us comfort, love, peace and joy every single day that they enrich our lives with their presence and grace. Our cats give us all that they have day after day unconditionally.

What Our Pets Can Do For Us

Your child will learn to care for and nurture one of Gods beautiful creatures. Your children will  learn how to be responsible when they care for a pet. Children will learn that their pet relies on them for comfort and nourishment. Your pet will love your child unconditionally.

Pets are good companions as they  can turn an unpleasant day into a comfortable day. A cat will purr away on your lap and snuggle up close to you. Birds will sing delightful songs to you that will brighten your day. A dog will look at you through their kind and loving eyes as if to say tomorrow will be a much better day for you my friend. A Guinea pig will make their little calling sound to you when you come home from work or school. Gerbils will entertain you as they spin around on their exercise wheel in their cage. I find fish very relaxing to watch as they swim back and forth in their aquarium. I had a pet goat that was very kind and loving, he would greet me in the morning with a soft and gentle bah.

My cats sleep on my bed at night and snuggle up close to me and when I pat them on their head they purr and purr away which I find very comforting and relaxing. When you do not feel good a cat will rest on your lap or lay down next to you. Cats are very good little care givers. Cats keep any rodents out of your home. Dogs bark and scare away unwanted visitors or other wild animals.

Pets lower our blood pressure and put us in a better frame of mind. Pets make our lives less lonely as they are awesome company. Children that our mean to pets or harm them will grow up to treat people the same way that they have treated their pets. Parents watch your children interact with pets as you will learn a lot about your child’s behavior.

Anxiety and Your Cat

My cats get overly anxious when I go on a vacation. My cats may stop eating for awhile or throw up what they have eaten. I put my suitcase out where my cats can look at it several days before I leave on my vacation. My cats can get used to the fact slowly by seeing my suitcase sitting out that I will be leaving soon. Cats do not like any changes whatsoever in their daily routine. I leave some of my clothing sitting out so my cats can curl up in it. Cats feel more at ease when they have something with your scent on it to sleep on or smell.

By having a new kitten in the household your older cats will become anxious to begin with. Make sure you spend a lot of time with your older cats so they do not fell left out or think that you do not love them anymore. Give your cat some special cat treats or tuna canned in water and that will make them feel extra special.

20151112_121252

I have someone check on my cats everyday when I am on a vacation. My cats are given fresh water everyday for optimal health. Their food dishes are kept full and their litter boxes are cleaned out everyday. My cats have nice clean towels to sleep on while I am gone or my bed or heated cat beds.

IMG_1618

Cats like to play with catnip filled mice and other cat toys while you are gone as this helps them relax. My cats like to bird watch through my picture window. Put something out to help your cat occupy his day while you are gone on your vacation. I have plenty of cat toys in my cats open toy box for them to choose from so they will not get bored while I am gone.

A Love For Cats

Humans have had an infatuation with cats from the beginning of time. The ancient Egyptians worshiped their Siamese cats. They mummified their cats and had them buried with them. Cats heads have the same eye placement , etc. as human babies do. Our cats weigh about what a young baby would weigh.

Cats are very helpful at removing rodents from our buildings and grain. They have helped control the plague by eating and killing rodents. Cats have saved farmers a lot of money by killing the rats and mice that eat the grain on their farm. Before we had cats on our farm rats were eating the corn out of the old corn crib. Once we had cats on our farm the rat population disappeared completely.

Our black cats have not always had a fair rap. They were associated with witch craft years ago and bad luck. My black cats have always given me joy and happiness.

I find black cats to be no different than any other color of cat in the feline world.

We love watching our feline friends at play. Having a cat can lower our blood pressure and help us to be more relaxed in general. Holding our cats and having them purr away is very comforting. It is nice to cuddle up next to your cat in the night and hearing them purr until you fall into a restful sleep.

Cats have alerted their owners of a fire in the night or a gas leak that has saved their owners life. My black cat Sebastian let me know that a man was walking down my road at 9PM. He looked out of the window and made a horrible growling sound. I pulled down my window shade for the rest of the evening.

Our cats are  wonderful companions in our lives. Our cats do so very much for us each and everyday. I truly appreciate all of my fine and loving felines that I have and have had in my life.

My Cream Colored Cat Named Russ

Russ was given to me by friends that go to my church. He has always been a kind and loving cat with a heart of gold. He greets me in the morning with a friendly meow and he wants to be held. He loves to be around all of my other cats next door. He even helped take care of Addi’s kittens when they were very young. He would play with them and they would play with his tail.

Russ

Russ likes to go outside and eat a little bit of grass now and then. He just barely steps out of the door and chews on some grass and then he wants back in the house. He never growls at any of my other cats. One day one of my neutered Tom’s was trying to get in a fight with Bella  and Russ broke up the fight right away. Russ is Bella’s knight in shining amour.

Russ waits for his turn to eat the cat treats. Mr. Gray waits for know one and eats as many treats as he possibly can. Russ likes canned cat food with pumpkin in it. Russ loves to take afternoon naps in the sun by the window or on top of a bench. He is like a steward of my other cats next door. He makes sure everyone else is just as relaxed and calm just like he is.

20160104_145141Russ is three years old now. He still likes to play with toy catnip filled mice and birds. He has several different cat circle toy ball games to play with. Russ is an exceptionally nice and kind cat. If your cat grows up in your house as young kitten and his Mother and Father are both kind and loving changes are that your kitten will be kind and loving also. I am so Thankful to have Russ as one of my cats.

Is Your Cat Extra Shy Or very Outgoing ?

Kohl is a very outgoing cat and loves to be around other people. He loves to play with a fish on the end of a stick with anyone that comes to my house to visit. He loves to eat string cheese out of a cat snack dispenser. Kohl makes sure people are watching him get his string cheese out of the cat snack dispenser.

20151004_135707

Garfunkel and Conrad are basically my cats only. They love to be held and petted by me and me alone. Conrad’s Mother was very shy and very cautious of all human beings. I do not know about Conrad’s father as he was a feral cat that came to my farm.

Maggie is a very friendly and outgoing cat and the complete opposite of her sister. She loves to be held and petted by people she has gotten to know for some period of time.

Conrad upside down

 

Cali and Russ and very outgoing and can hardly wait for someone to come to the house to hold them and pet them. They both purr and  purr away while they are being held and petted. Peter is shy beyond shy and likes to hide back of a board most of he day. Addi the Mother of Peter’s kittens is semi shy. Addi’s children Hilford, Mr. Gray and Sherlock do not want to be held or petted. Peter and Nicole are Conrad’s brother and sister. Conrad likes to be held and petted by me only.

Peter

I think it is  part genetics in the fact that some cats like to be held and made a fuss over where other cats rather be left alone. In most cases the kittens act like their parents do around people. Some cats can come around and become completely tame with their human caregiver. Cat snacks and tuna canned in water can make a change in your cats personality for the better. Good food and extra love can sometimes make the feral cat extra tame over time and with lots of patience.

The Wonderer

I have had tom cats and some females take off for a month or more at a time.

Peter

I had a female outdoor cat that would go to the neighbors house in the summer months. In the winter she would come back to her heated cat bed in an enclosed building.

I have had many tom cats take off for months at a time. They were probably in search of Juliet. They have generally taken off in the spring and summer months.

Conrad

Some cats have taken off in the past to live at the neighbors house because he had milk cows. What cat could resist fresh milk everyday.

I had a gray stripped tabby cat for five years. One day I could not find her. After five years she returned. She looked good. After she was here for one month she died. I guess she wanted to come home to die.

Cleo as a kitten

I have adopted a lot of cats over the years. Some have taken off for a week at a time right when I first let them outdoors. They might have been trying to find their way home or just exploring their new surroundings.

I had a black and white female cat that was part Siamese and Himalayan that I had adopted. She lived at my place for quite a few years. I saw her at the neighbors house one day when I was driving by. I found out from  other neighbors that she was now living in their house. I was sad to loose her but at least she had a good indoor home in her old age. She had left me with her legacy of many kittens over the years.

Cats love to explore and roam around. It is a good survival skill. A cat should look for the best source of food in the wild. I hope your cat comes home shortly.

Choose For Yourself What You Want To Do In Your Life

I have heard of Grandparents dictating to their Grandsons that if they do not want to farm they will not inherit the farm when they die. Let your Grandson get the job he wants to get for himself. A person that works at a job he does not like will not be good or interested in that particular job. Grandsons do what you want to do with your life. Life is very short to work at a job you cannot stand to do each and everyday  of your life. Grandsons can rent out the family farm to a reliable tenant and it is still considered a family farm. Do not ever tell anyone what kind of job they should take for the rest of their life that decision is left up to them and only them alone.

My Grandmother would be shocked to find three cats living in her house. I love cats so it was my decision to have three house cats. Cats give me joy, love, peace and comfort. My Grandmother thought all cats should be farm cats and live outdoors in the barn. I figure that as long as I maintain the family farm in good order that Grandma should not be to upset with three cats living in my house.

Get a job that you have a passion and a love for and you will be happy and content with your work. Going to work everyday should not be a chore. Your job should be interesting and enjoyable. I have had rental properties for years. I have met a lot of kind and caring people throughout the years. I love to paint outdoors and stain decks and mow lawns and keep buildings in good state of repair.

Do what you want with your life as we only have one life to live it might as well be a life we enjoy each and everyday.

Sebastian’s Story

Sebastian was born and raised on my farm. He would always walk under your feet when you would walk outdoors. Luckily no one ever stepped on him. One day he kept meowing right outside of my back door. I felt sorry for him and he became my third house cat.

20160106_124613

Sebastian was very intelligent.The first night that Sebastian was in my house I heard quite a racket coming from my living room.  Sebastian had been busy gathering up all of the toy missing mice and placed them in a neat little row. Sebastian also let me give him a bath. He seemed to enjoy his bath and he made no fuss whatsoever.

Sebastian did not respect my older house cats to begin with. He liked to wrestle with them and they did not appreciate that very much. As Sebastian reached maturity he acted much better with my other house cats.

Sebastian loved to balance on the window valances and he would walk across them to the other side . Sebastian was quite the acrobat. As Sebastian matured he could no longer perform this feat any longer.

Sebastian loved to sleep on my bed at night. In the winter months it was a three cat night instead of a three dog night. I always would end up with three cats sleeping peacefully in my bed with me.

Sebastian’s favorite toys were always toy mice. He had quite an assortment of them to play with. He also liked to bat away at a mouse in a circle toy.

Sebastian was about twelve years old when I discovered he had lung cancer from an X-Ray that my vet had taken of his chest. I thought he just had asthma. My vet put him on a steroid treatment. The steroid’s worked for about one years time. Sebastian kept losing weight and was having more difficulty walking up and down my steps in my house. He was thirteen years old when I had my vet put him to sleep.  I never want to see one of my beloved pets suffer.
