Cat Meds Tips

Just days ago, we had to rush my kid's beloved cat to the emergency vet due to respiratory distress. We found out that he has heart disease, might have months to live, and will be on medication for the rest of his life. We're all devastatd. This has been my teen's best friend since age 6. He's the most loving cat I've ever met, and he's the last of our original three cats we had since our kiddo was two (now almost 14). You can imagine how terrible we all feel.

How to Pet a Cat

Have you heard that there is a right way--and a wrong way--to pet a cat? According to scientists, there are many signs that indicate whether or not a cat wants to be pet or not, and following your cat's lead is the best way to pet him or her. This seems like common sense to me; everyone I know who has cats knows exactly where their cats enjoy being stroked and they'll even tell guests to avoid certain spots that cats dislike.

Round-Faced Cat Cutie

There are so many cute cats and dogs on Instagram these days that another one may not sound that exciting at first, but I promise that Zuu is definitely something unique! Zuu is a cat with an almost perfectly round face, and the cat's adorable cotton ball-like appearance is stealing everyone's heart. The cat looks like a forest spirit from a Studio Ghibli movie rather than a house cat!

Keeping Kitty Safe And Calm Post-Surgery

In the middle of one of our most hectic weeks of the year, our cat had to have surgery. She's doing great, but it's been fun keeping the cone on her so she doesn't lick the glue that's holding her stitches shut open! It's also been fun keeping her away from the rest of the cats and dogs, some of whom want to help her lick herself clean. Isn't that sweet of them...

The Best Cat Jokes

Cat jokes and memes are some of the best entertainment we have, don't you think? Cats are so funny already, so it makes perfect sense for their behavior, when explained or even roasted, to be just as entertaining. Whether you like jokes about how cats "own" their humans, how cats are jerks or how they differ from dogs, they are some of the funniest, and often even the cleanest, jokes around.

Russian Blue Cats

Having had cats for most of my life, it's strange when I think of all of the various breeds I've never adopted. I almost said "owned," but cats pretty much own you! I have one clawing up my office chair as we speak. I tend to gravitate toward tortoiseshells, long-haired cats and especially black cats; I don't think I've ever been without a black cat for long. But I've never had a Russian Blue, and seeing these photos of Russian Blue cats makes me really want one!

Adorable Slippers Make Cat Paws Out Of Your Feet

While I'd never advocate for putting actual cats on your feet, these cute cat shoes are pretty irresistible! They are shaped like cats, and while they're not fluffy or furry like some slippers, they look like they'd be great flip flops for the beach or general summer life. Then again, you could always try buying a cheap pair of your own that are too big and cutting them into these shapes--or even using Sharpies to decorate them the specific way you want them to look.

Yes, Female Cats Spray

My one-year-old cat is in heat, and we have to get her in to get fixed ASAP because she's begun to "scent" everything. I wrote about how we use her "calming box" to help her quiet down, and it does help to keep her calm--it's just an open cardboard box she can lie down in and look at us from the top, the same kind of typical cardboard box any other cat enjoys playing in--but now that she's peeing everywhere to try and attract a mate, and annoying not just all of us but my neurtered cats as well, it really is time to spay the last cat!
