Cats Are Very Compassionate

Cats know when you are not feeling well. My cats will lay by my side and gently purr away. I have three house cats and they take turns watching over me when I am under the weather. When one cats leaves for awhile another will quickly fill up the empty spot.

Cats have compassion for one another. If one cat is not feeling up to Parr another cat will lay down as close as he possibly can to his sick friend. Female cats will help care for each others kittens. I observed one female cat catching a mouse to feed to another female cats kittens.

Cats have been known to nurse baby puppies, opossums, ferrets and some other small animals. One cat had adopted three baby squirrels that she raised along with her own four kittens. Cats have been burned badly in a fire trying to save all of their kittens. Unfortunately a lot of cats have awakened their owners to let them know there is a fire in their house only to succumb to the fire themselves. Cats have alerted their owners to gas leaks and much more.

Cats will lay down next to people that are dying in a rest home. It is the cats way of comforting them in their final moments. When my Mother died my Siamese cat Sugar would sit on the edge of the bathtub and cry out or wail for one straight week. She remembered my Mother would buy cat food for her and other goodies and take her to her vet visits when she was sick.

I had one cat that was raised in a vets office and rodents were not to be killed as they were someones pets. My other cat saw a mouse and was intending to have brunch. My cat that was raised in the vets office embraced the mouse by encircling it with his feet. My other cat was in shock thinking aren’t we supposed to kill those.

Cats care for their owners very much and we care for our feline friends very much. Cats show compassion to each other and other animals. Cats comfort those in need of comfort and  show great compassion.

The Calming Effect Of Cats

Cats are there for you when you come home from a hard day of work. Your cat sits on your lap and purrs away gently and licks your hand. Your cat is relaxed and you feel more relaxed also with your cats presence.

Cats love to play with toy mice and balls and catnip toys. It is fun and calming just to watch your cat play with his favorite toys. Cats are full of adventure and their various antics that put a smile on our face. Cats can sleep in the oddest and strangest positions. Garfunkel was sleeping on top of my refrigerator with his paws over his eyes to keep out the morning light. Conrad loves to sleep in a recliner with his long feet and paws hanging over the side of the recliner. Kohl sleeps in a heated cat bed and snores away. Garfunkel also sleeps in a thermal bed and Conrad likes a Meowfia cave bed that is made by women in Africa.

Calming Effects Of Cats

Just being around cats lowers your blood pressure and relieves a lot of stress and anxiety from your day. Cats show you unconditional love and companionship. Cats seem to know when you are feeling sick and they lay down next to you and comfort you to the best of their ability.

Cats Are very Loving Animals

Cats are very caring creatures. Cats will look at you lovingly and with soulful eyes. Your cat will never judge you or complain about unnecessary things. Cats are compassionate about helping out other pets also. My cats were best friends with a pet goat that I had at one time. My cats and the goat would sleep together in a large dog house. I once had a small dog that would share her house with one of my cats and all of her kittens and they would even go out hunting together. My small dog would babysit my cats kittens if she wanted to leave for a little while.

You Have Better Health With A Pet In Your Life

It has been proven that people that have pets have less health problems and live longer because of the calming effects that are pets have in our lives. A hectic day became a wonderful day once I came home to my beloved cat.

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.
