How To Help Your Flabby Tabby Cat

Buy toys for your cat that he can toss up in the air and pounce on. By interactive toys that you can entertain your cat with such as a fish on the end of a rope. Treat toys are good because your cat has to figure out how to get the treat and he will lose weight in his pursuit of the treat.

Some cats are night time eaters and they really pack on the pounds if they eat late at night. My vet told be to put their food bowls away at night. My cats did lose some weight with that method. Buying senior cat food for an older cat will help them with weight lose. Feed your flabby tabby smaller portions.

I live in a story and a half house that has stair steps and my cats have lost weight from just running up and down the steps. Sometimes they run up and down my steps at record speeds in the middle of the night. My house cats also enjoy playing with a circle game toy for cats that has a ball in the middle that they bat back and forth.

I recently purchased  One fast Cat which is like a kitty treadmill. My cats next door caught onto how to use it rather quickly. My oldest cat next door Maggie had it figured out in record time. I was shocked when I took Addi to my vet recently for her yearly shots and checkup. My vet put Addi on the scale and she had lost four pounds in only three months by using One Fast Cat.  My calico cat Cali lost two pounds. I will be taking more of my cats next door to the vet as the year progresses and I am anxious to find out how much weight they have lost by using One Fast Cat.

I hope this information helps your flabby tabby become a nice shapely lean cat. I hope you and your cat can exercise for many years to come and you remain happy and healthy.

Cats Showing Off

Cats like and crave attention. I had a Red Tabby cat that would play with a circle game toy and he would make sure that everyone in the room was watching him. He had mastered that game to perfection and he wanted to make sure everyone knew that.

I had a black house cat that would walk across the curtain rod with the grace of a tight rope walker. He never once lost his balance while he performed his tight rope walk. We had a black outdoor cat that would balance up high on the feed door and then jump down on the shoulder of whom ever was by the feed door. She could really scare you at 5 in the morning when she landed on your shoulder.

I had a calico cat that would bring dead snakes homes and put them on my doorstep. I guess she wanted to show me what a brave huntress she was. I also had a gray and white female cat take on a skunk and she won the match except for a bite on her face which healed up quickly. She had her rabies shots up to date so I did not have to worry about that.

Cats love to do something naughty while you are talking on the phone. I guess they figure even negative attention is attention. They tend to jump on things that they know are off limits while you are talking away on the phone. I think they also figure that you are not going to interrupt your conversation to correct their bad behavior at that moment in time.

I had one cat climb to the top of the barn roof and she stayed up there for about two whole days before she came down on her own. When she was down she looked at me like were you really worried about me. She knew the answer to that question as I had been worried to death that she might fall down to her death.

Conrad

My house cat Conrad can get treats out of any treat dispenser ASAP. He has mastered all of the ones I have very quickly. He loves to play with circle ball toys and he is proficient with either paw he chooses to use at the moment. He will sit in the middle of the circle game and bat the ball one way and then the other way using a different paw each and every time.

Cats crave attention and they love to show off whenever and however they can. Cats are great entertainers. We would be lost without our cats and their performances.

Cats At Play

Kittens start off with trying to grab their Mother’s tail as she swishes it back and forth. They love to play with maple tree helicopters and jump in loose leaves and chase the leaves as the wind moves them around. They love to play with a medium size ball of aluminum foil. One of my cats had a fetish with sponges and she would remove them from the side of my sink and play with them. I ended up purchasing a lot of new sponges for my dish washing needs.

Cats Can Play With Almost Any Cat Toy

Cats can play with any toy that seems to catch their fancy. Empty toilet paper rolls are a big hit with some cats.  When cats catch a mouse they tend to love the catch and release technique until the mouse eventually dies. Kittens start out wrestling with their brothers and sisters to see who the top cat is. In my house next door Cali is the head of the household. Cali is part Siamese and I think that is why she has been able to hold on to her position as top matron of the house. Cali does not hurt or harm the other cats but she has her way of letting them know she rules the roost. She was the first one to try out my new Litter -Robot litter box. All of the other cats learned how it worked from her.

Cats Learn From Each Other

When a new cat toy is placed in your house one cat seems to go for it ASAP and then the other cats in your home learn how to us it by watching your leed cat. I have a cat treat dispenser that Conrad mastered and Kohl and Garfunkel have gotten their fair share of treats out  of it also. The circle game toy is a good example of that. My cat Red had the circle toy mastered to purrfection. He was ambidextrous and the ball would speed around the track  like greased lightening. Philmoor watched Red and he was able to master the circle ball toy also.

Cats learn from watching one another very quickly. My cats come running when I call them by name. Kohl likes to brush my hair with his paws now and then. Garfunkel loves to lick my fingers and Conrad gives little love nips now and then. My cats love to roll around on warm cement and eat fresh grass and catnip. Cats are very inquisitive creatures and can make a game almost out of anything.

Treat Your Cat To New Cat Toys

Treat your cat to a new cat toy or make one from things that you have in your home that would be pet friendly. Watching a cat or kitten at play is very relaxing. If you have a cat toy with a string and a fish on the end of it you and your cat can interact together. Your cat will love the extra attention that he is getting. When he is done playing he will probably purr away until he falls sound to sleep in your lap. Hope you and your cat have many years to interact together.

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.

The Adventures Of Zachary, Jitters and Tabatha

I purchased Zachary my pet goat from a party that raised goats in Thornton, Iowa. He came to live with me as a very young goat. I put him in a building that had two cats in it because I wanted him to get along with cats.

We had a dog that was part miniature lab, dachshund and rat terrier and her name was Jitters. Jitters and Zachary got along well together. Jitters was a very smart small dog. She won every prize at a dog show at TSC except for one prize. A puppy won that prize. She would jump into my Fathers arms on command, shake hands, roll over and she loved cats.

My cat Tabatha had her kittens in Jitters dog house and when she left for awhile Jitters was head babysitter. She watched over those kittens as if they were her own offspring. In the morning the kittens would come running out of the dog house followed by Tabatha and than Jitters.

Zachary would jump on our windowsills and look at us while we were preparing breakfast in the morning. Jitters and Tabatha would be waiting for their fried eggs or oatmeal in the morning along with their normal food. Where one went they would all go.

When Zach was very young the two kittens he grew up with thought to themselves let play a trick on the goat. They left him in the corn field by himself. My Father and I found him in short order as we heard him bleating in the field and he rode home with us in the pickup. We could not find Zach at one time. He was quick and he sneaked into our house. We kept calling him outdoors to no avail. We went in our house and he was standing in the middle of the living room and nothing was damaged or soiled luckily.

They would all go out hunting together. Tabatha and Jitters would stay in the ditch and hunt for mice. Zachary would veer off into the corn field and eat the ear corn that was left behind by the combine. One time Jitters caught a mouse and Tabatha got it away from her. Tabatha tried to get her kittens to eat it but they were to young yet to know what to do with it. Jitters got her mouse back and she had her appetizer for the day.

One time they got on the black top by my place and a nice woman herded them back to my place. She got out of her car and said I assume this is were they live and I said yes and Thanked her. She did not herd Tabatha back however because you can never herd a cat. Tabatha came back all on her own.

Zachary and Tabatha and Jitters had many fun adventures together. They were tremendous and loving pets. Tabatha lived to be 7 years old. Jitters lived to 14 years old. Zachary lived to be 16.3 years old. I am sure they are having fun adventures in heaven. God Bless our beloved pets.

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.

Sibley Birds Guide Second Edition Book from Chewy.Com

I as provided Sibley Birds Guide Second Edition Book from Chewy.Com to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100 % honest and my own.

The second edition Sibley Birds Guide book  is completely revised with more than 600 new paintings and 111 rare species added, new information on behavior and habitat, and more tips on finding species in the field. The book is written and illustrated by David Allen Sibley.

The illustrations in the book are 15 % to 20 %  larger for better detail. There are nearly 7000 digitally remastered paintings for better print quality. The attention to extended detail on every bird is exquisite and extensive.

I have learned to look at birds more carefully and pay more attention to their wing patterns and markings making it easier for me to identify them correctly the next time I see one. I also pay closer attention to their bill length and the overall size of the bird and learning their songs and calls.

I have learned what kind of trees or brush attract the birds in my own backyard. Some birds like older mature trees and others prefer pine trees. Some of my birds like to eat dried up berries on some of my hedges. Older trees are a good area for birds to go that like eating insects and ants that are found in and or on older mature trees.

The Sibley Guide to Birds from Chewy.Com is a must have guide for the basic bird lover. I love how the Sibley Bird Guide shows you the pictures of the young birds and then the fully mature picture of the bird. It is interesting to see how the coloring in their feathers changes as they become more mature birds.

I have learned what kind of birds like to eat at bird feeders.  I learned that if their feathers are laying down or up it means that they are cold, scared or completely relaxed. The Sibley Birds Guide is my far the best bird guide book I have ever owned. I keep it by my chair which is located by my picture window and my bird feeders for quick and easy reference.

My cats are delighted that I have the Sibley Bird guide book from Chewy.Com. With the new guide book our caregiver can attract more birds at her bird feeder to keep us entertained throughout the day.

How To Wake Up Your Human If You Are A Cat

My name is Kohl and lay on my Mother’s pillow and meow away in her ear. I find my method of waking up my human very effective indeed. My human gets very annoyed with me when I give her my idea of a permanent in the morning. I need away at her hair and comb through it with my teeth. She gets her fill of my cat perm in a hurry and she gets out of bed and tends to all of my needs and desires. I demand fresh water in the morning. I simply stare and the water dish and she fills it with nice fresh water for me to drink ASAP. I have her trained purrfectly.

My name is Garfunkel and I lay closer and closer to my human Mother until she cannot stand the heat radiating from my little body any longer and she gets out bed. I have another method I use also as you always need a plan B. I lick and lick away at my humans hands and arms. She gets out of bed and cleans out our litter boxes and I make sure I am the first cat to use the cleaned out litter box in the morning. My human was very easy to train.

My name is Conrad and I sleep by my Mothers feet all night long. I am part Siamese so I let that part of me shine through in the morning. I call out to my human Mother in a shrill Siamese voice that could wake the dead in the morning and if she did not wake up with that I would have to call 911. I walk up by her face in the morning as I like it when she pats me on the head in the morning and she holds me close to her for a little while.

We love our human and we try to please her as much as she pleases us. We are fortunate to have each other and be in a loving and caring home. God Bless you humans for taking care of us and for letting us train you purrfectly.

Cats And The Predicaments They Get Into

My Mother had a cat years ago that jumped onto the top of a wood burning stove and she burned the bottom of her paws. Their cat let out a horrible wailing sound. They put Vaseline on the bottom of her paws and she healed up quickly from her wood burning stove ordeal.

I had a half grown cat ride on top of the gas tank of my car all the way to the college that I was attending which was about a twenty minute drive from where I live. I noticed my cat sitting on a tire in between my classes. I told the secretary at the college my predicament and she gave me a box to put my cat in. It was Sept. and I did not have to worry about him getting overcome with heat by being in my car. He stayed in the box until my last class. I noticed him looking out of my back window. We drove home and he jumped out with no effects from his adventurous day of travel.

20151109_101734

I have had house cats climb up trees when I let them out for awhile. One of my cats stayed up in the tree even though it was starting to rain outside. When she was soaking wet she decided to come in and she gave me a look that could kill. I told her I tried to get you to come in but you would not come.

I have had friends tell me that their outdoor cats had got their heads stuck in a can, jar, hot dog wrapper, etc. Luckily all of them noticed their cats predicaments right away before they suffocated to death. They used a can opener and butter to get the can off of their cats head. They very carefully broke the jar off of their cats head with a hammer and the hog dog wrapper only required a scissors to remove it from Fluffs head.

I hope all of you and your feline friends are successful in getting out of your predicaments.
