What My Cats Do Everyday

My cats have their daily routines down to a science. My house cats sleep on my bed at night or in one of their cat beds or on a large fluffy mat that the sun shines on in the daytime. My cats make a stop at the litter box and the food and water bowl to start out their morning. They take turns looking out of the picture window at the birds eating out of their bird feeders.

Kohl starts out his morning rummaging through his toy box for the perfect cat toys to play with for the day. Garfunkel is on my bed now watching me blog away. Conrad is in his recliner taking his first catnap of the day at 10:00 AM. Garfunkel will go back to watching birds when I am finished with this blog post.

Conrad will be tossing his green snail up in the air and Kohl will be playing with any toy frog that he can find along with toy mice and a stuffed hedgehog and more. All of my house cats like to get their cat treats out of cat treat dispensers except for Garfunkel. Garfunkel want his treat placed in front of him. Around 1:00  PM it is time for catnap number 2. Garfunkel likes to watch animals, westerns and car racing on TV. At 4:00 PM it is time for catnap number 3.

At 7:00 PM my house cats take a last look at the birds for the day. There last catnap of the day is a little after 7:00 PM. They eat a little bit of cat food before bedtime. When I go to bed they go to bed.

My cats next door sit on their cat trees and watch me and the birds. Peter or Faith are the look out cats in the morning and they seem to tell the other cats that I am up and will be over soon to tend to their needs and wants for the day. I find them sleeping in their cat beds, hammocks, large fluffy cat mat and on guard in the cat trees. They come running once I open the door. I give them fresh water and fill up their food dishes and clean out the litter boxes except for the automatic ones that get cleaned out once a week. Cali and Mr. Gray make a deposit to the litter box right away so I can clean it out before I leave for the morning. They watch me open up a nice can of cat food for a little extra snack for the day for them. They take turns eating their portions of the delicious canned treat.

I find various cat toys laying on the floor when I come over in the morning. Toy mice stuffed with catnip are a big hit along with singing birds, balls and a bat that stomach lights up when it is tossed around. They love it when I pat them on the head in the morning or brush them.

All of my cats love and enjoy different toys and games. My cats have learned my routine as to what time frame I will be taking care of them. My cats give me joy and love everyday of my life.

Peter My Pet Cat

My cat Peter was one of Lizzie’s three kittens.  He is a gorgeous black and white long haired cat and he is part Siamese, Himalayan, Maine Coon and domestic short hair. His Fathers name was Onyx and he was a pure black cat. Onyx lived to be 15 years old.

Peter was born in an outdoor cat building that had a heated water bowl and heated cat beds. He would disappear the minute I would open the door of the cat building. He is still very shy yet. He does watch me when I clean out the litter boxes. He will come out for certain canned cat foods and cat treats.

I adopted a cat by the name of Addi from Wisconsin. She is part Silver Tabby. Peter found Addi irresistible and she had five kittens with Peter. They had Mr. Gray, Sherlock, Hilford, and Leo and Cleo that were adopted and they live the good life in their new home.

Peter helped Addi care for her kittens, He would play with them and they would snuggle up with him. Two of my neutered Toms Russ and Lorenzo would babysit the kittens. Addi would not let the female cats in the house near her kittens at all.

Peter and Addi are still very close. Peter and Addi are both fixed as I do not want anymore kittens. I have 11 cats in the other house and 3 cats in my house. Mr. Gray is friendly and Hilford and Sherlock take after their Father Peter as they are shy and reserved.

Peter will watch me on top of his cat tree to see when I might be coming over with cat treats or canned food for him and his family to eat. Sometimes I will see Peter come out of a large heated cat bed followed by Hilford, Sherlock and Mr. Gray and Addi or Nicole his sister. Since she is Peters sister she is accepted as part of their cat family. Conrad Peters brother is one of my house cats in my house.

 

Peter is gorgeous and he has a wonderful and excellent family that love and care for each other deeply. Purrs to you and yours.

Cats and Storms

My cats can get very upset when a storm is coming. My cats will run and hide in the basement. If my cats are in bed with me at night they will meow nervously. My cats tend to lay as close as they possibly can next to me in bed if it is thundering. I had one cat look up at the heavens when it was thundering very loudly and a tornado warning was issued. All of a sudden she ran to the basement and I decided to follow suit. The winds were horrific and I lost large branches out of the trees and the roof on one of my buildings. The cats and I were fine.

I have trained my cats to run down to the basement when I call them. Cat Treats are good way to train your cat. You do not have time to locate all your cats when a tornado is rapidly approaching your home. All I have to do is call my cats with a sense of urgency in my voice and they join me safely in the basement of my home.

Animals have a keen sense of the weather and one should always take ques from them in regards to the weather situation. My friend had a cat that ran under her couch when they issued a tornado warning on the radio. When they sounded the all clear she came out from under the couch one minute later.

Conrad

My cats tend to move around a lot in the basement when the winds are horrific. If my cats are looking out of a window they keep watching the tree branches move back and forth. Their tails are swinging rapidly back and forth as they are stating their distaste for the weather by their wild tail movement. Listen to you cats keen sense of weather changes. Hope you and cats survive the storms in nature.

Red’s Story

Red was a Red tabby cat. My vet gave Red to me after I had to put my Siamese house cat Sugar to sleep. My vet found Red abandoned on a golf course in the middle of December. My vets wife had trained Red to stay off of the counter tops.

Red got along fine with my other house cat Ginger that I had at that time. Red was very intelligent. If I would ask Red do you want to go outdoors he would head right toward the door. He liked to tease me when it was time for him to come back in my house. Red would take off running the moment I almost caught him to take him back into my house. Red would do this about three times before I could finally carry him back in my house.

Red’s favorite toy was a circle toy ball game. Red was ambidextrous and would hit the ball with either paw. Red also wanted to make sure you were watching him play his ball game. Red was very proud of the fact that he had mastered the circle toy ball game completely. I rescued a cat that I found under a car one day at a restaurant and I named him Philmoor. Philmoor caught on to the circle toy ball game immediately and Red felt bad about that unfortunately. Red hardly ever played with his favorite toy after  Philmoor mastered the circle toy ball game.

Red was a very friendly and outgoing cat. Red loved attention from other people and he actually thrived on it. Red liked to sleep on my bed at night along with my other two house cats.

At the age of 17 Red’s spine gave out. Red could no longer control his urine. My vet said some older cats develop a defect in their spine late in life. I had Red put to sleep at my vets office. Red was a wonderful , kind, outgoing and loving cat.

How My House Cats Spend Their Days In The Winter Months

My house cats love to lay on my bed and look out of my window at the birds in the trees and bushes. They sort through their toy box everyday to pick out a cat toy to toss and throw around in the air. Conrad’s favorite toy is a singing bird cat toy at the moment. He absolutely loves tossing it in the air again and again.

Cat Beds and Heated Cat Beds

My cats love to lay in their Meowfia cat bed from Chewy.Com. They also love their Serta cat bed with a plush and cushioned bed for your older or arthritic cat. They love their heated K & H cat beds that I have purchased from Chewy.Com. My cats in the house next door love their large heated enclosed K & H beds and the heated windowsill beds. I have some cat beds that recirculate your cats own body heat. Several of my cats next door like those.

Heated Water Bowls and Automatic Pet Feeders

I have a large Stainless Steel heated water bowl for my cats next door to drink out of made by Allied Industries Inc. They are easy to clean and your cat always has water available to drink. I have used my heated water bowl for four years now and it still works perfectly fine. I love my automatic pet feeders as they are easy to use and your cat always has plenty of tasty food at their disposal. Chewy.com handles automatic pet feeders for your cat or dog.

Bird Watching 101 For Your Cats

I have several bird feeders by my picture window. Put out a large variety of different mixtures of bird seed to attract a large variety of birds. I also put out suet or suet balls from my local grocery store as suet attract the woodpeckers. My cats watch the following birds : sparrows, blue jays, black birds, chickadees, house finches, cardinals, gold finches, starlings, crows and woodpeckers.

CAT TOYS THAT ENTERTAIN AND GIVE YOUR CAT EXERCISE

My cats love to play with their circle toys with a ball that they bat around with their paws. They throw their catnip mice around and toss them up in the air. My house cats love to play with a toy that throws out a string called Flik made by the Pet Safe Co. They love the mice cat toys that sound like a live mouse and the bird toys that sing like a living bird. They love to get their cat treats out of the cat treat dispensers. I have purchased some cat treats and dispensers from Chewy.Com. They love it when I swing a stick with a fish attached to the end of it up in the air as they try to grab it.

My cats enjoy their winter months and I hope your cats do too.

Different Cat Personalities

Siamese cats are very outgoing and very talkative. A purebred Siamese has a very high pitched meow. Sometimes they are a one person cat and do not do well with strangers. I had a purebred Siamese and she liked to jump on strangers heads. Siamese cats were trained to jump on peoples heads years ago. They were kind of like a small dog guard for the family. My cat Sebastian saw a man walking down my road at night and he let out a meow or wail that could literally wake the dead. I pulled my shade down and I thanked Sebastian for his heroic effort.

Himalayan cats are very quiet and never seem to meow much at all. They are very loving and very kind and they need a lot of grooming with their long hair. A Himalayan is a cross between a Persian and a Siamese cat. Persians have a short stubby nose and tend to be on the quiet side.

Rex cats do not shed and they have curly hair or no hair at all. Some of the hairless cats are quit long and resemble a Siamese cat that would have no hair. The hairless cats have a short life expectancy compared to other cat breeds.

I saw two Manx cats on the Isle of Man were they originated from. They were long and had no tails. They were very friendly and outgoing. They tend to have some health problems because they do not have a tail.

They are many more exciting and various breeds of cats to consider bringing into your household. Each and every cat seems to have its own distinctive and interesting personality that sets it apart from other cats or breeds.

All of the cats that I have now are domestic short hairs which is a combination of other breeds of cats. My cats are part domestic short hair, Siamese, Persian, Himalayan and Maine Coon. Most of my cats have a lot of Siamese and Himalayan in their genetic makeup. I had a purebred Maine Coon cat when I was six years old and she lived until I was sixteen and about forty years later I had a male cat born on my farm that looked identical to her.

My domestic short hair cats have lived to be eighteen years old. They are easy going and friendly and very loving cats. My cats are wonderful and loving companions. I hope you and your cats have a lifetime of friendship and many years together.

For The Love Of Cats

I have loved cats since I met my first cat Flossie in my stroller. My farm cats have always followed me all over our farm. They would wait with me in the morning while I waited for my school bus. My cats would sit next to me while I read a book outside. For a school assignment I had to have someone leed me around blindfolded and I was able to identify each one of my cats by their particular meow. I got an A on that assignment.

I have adopted many cats over the years and they have been wonderful and kind and loving cats. Many of the cats I have adopted have become one of my  house cats. I have adopted Siamese cats, domestic short hair, Persian and a Russian Blue cat. I have adopted cats from restaurants, their former owner, businesses , a kennel and my veterinarian. Each cat that I have adopted has its own unique qualities and character.

I have doctored many cats back to health and most of them were very appreciative. Some of my cat patients have taken off again after their recovery. They did not realize that the medicine that I had them take had saved their lives. They thought I was a mean person that fed them a terrible tasting liquid mixture or gave them a shot or had them swallow a nasty pill. My intentions were well but they did not realize that.

I have loved and adored cats since my baby years. I would be totally lost without the companionship of a Dear sweet cat in my life. They sleep in my bed with me a night and awaken with me in the morning. They start out their day with a clean litter box, water and a dish full of dry cat food. They get cat treats, play with cat toys and held on my lap and I pat them on their head. They love to watch birds from my picture window. Life is purrfect with your loving, compassionate and caring cat in your life.

The Story of a Very Petite Young Black Cat

I had a very petite  and very small black kitten born on my farm. She would follow my Father and I all over the farm. She would do the same thing if someone came to visit us. She was always under foot and we were afraid that we would step on her and kill her by accident. She was a very kind and loving little female kitten. She knew enough to stay away from cars and farm machinery. If I would try to run so she could not catch up with me it did not work. The minute I would turn around she was right there johnny on the spot.

Conrad

She would eat a fair amount of cat food but she never seemed to grow. I thought she would always remain very small for her age. She was very healthy and could run like the wind. She had her rabies and distemper shots and she checked out fine with my vet. I think our dog got a little annoyed with her at times because she would also follow our dog all around the farm when we were in the house.

I put an ad in our local newspaper under giveaways. I was afraid that someone would eventually step on her and kill her by accident. A nice young couple answered my ad. I told the couple that she was very small and that she would probably stay that way the rest of her life. The couple came out to our farm and fell in love with her the minute they saw her. I asked for their name and phone no. so I could check up on her later on.

Conrad by jewelry box

I waited for about one year before I called the young couple and asked them how the kitten was coming along. They told me that she turned out to be  large female cat and that they loved her so much they got another cat to keep her company. I was glad  my young cat  found an excellent and loving home.

Pet Safe Flik Automatic String Thrower To Excite Your Cat From Chewy.Com

I was provided a Pet Safe Flik Automatic teaser throws a string to excite your cat from Chewy.Com to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100 % honest and my own.

 

Garfunkel loved catching the string as it automatically came out of Pet Safe Flik string thrower. He played with it until a bird crashed into my window and upset him. Kohl would grab onto the string with his pads until he had to let go. Kohl also had the string in his mouth like he had caught a mouse or a rat. Kohl is eleven years old and he acted like a young cat again as he played with the Pet Safe Flik automatic teaser throws a string to excite you cat game from Chewy.Com.

With the Pet Safe Flik you can watch your curious cat stalk Flik and try to capture the string before it hides again. Your cat will have much more fun with the Flik than with an ordinary string. The Flik takes three AA batteries to operate. Always supervise pets playing with pet toys.The Flik awakens your cats natural hunting instincts and is good for all ages to cats to play with.The Flik stimulates your cat and provides exercise for your cat also.

I placed the Pet Safe Flik from Chewy.Com  in front of my cat Russ next door. Russ was very fascinated with the string that came out of the Flik. Russ grabbed the string  between his paws several times and than he started holding the string in his mouth. Russ had an extra strong grip on the string between his teeth and he started pulling the Flik across the Living Room floor. Russ let go and grabbed the string again with his pads. Pet Safe logo says Safe Pets – Happy Owners and protect, teach, and love. My cats were very proud of themselves when they caught the string.

My Related Cat Family

I adopted Addi from Nelson Cheese factory in Nelson, Wisconsin. She was a cat that was living outdoors at their business. She is a beautiful silver tabby cat with a little bit of cream coloring in her hair. I had Addi for about 6 months and she became pregnant by my cat Peter. Addi had five healthy kittens. Addi involved the help of my neutered Toms in baby sitting her kittens along with their Aunt Nicole.

When the kittens were about nine weeks old I gave two of them to a kind and loving home. I look at their pictures on Facebook and they are living in the lap of luxury. She named the kittens Leo and Cleo.

I named Addi’s other three kittens Mr. Gray, Hilford and Sherlock and they are large and sturdy looking neutered Tom’s. The other day Addi was sleeping on a large cat mat with Hilford and Nicole cuddled up together. I find Peter cuddled up with Nicole, Sherlock, Hilford and Mr. Gray with his feet or head sticking out of the heated cat bed.

The cat family gets along with Faith and Cali but they never cuddle up with them since they are not related to them. They like my cat Russ because he used to baby sit Addi’s kittens for her so he gets to cuddle up with them like he was part of their family.

My Related cat family is fun to watch in the way that they care for each other and keep each other warm. They like to play games together and toss a catnip mouse to each other. Since I always had outdoor cats as a child I never got to see how the inner workings of a related cat family actually worked until I was able to watch them in a house on a daily basis. The inner workings and concern for each others well being in a cat family is not that much different then the concerns a human family has for each others well being. They watch over each other on a daily basis.
