Spotting signs of depression and anxiety in cats
Some cats can become unsettled if something in their environment or daily routine changes.
Try to keep her routine similar when possible.
Make time to play – create interactive sessions for you and your cat.
How long do cats sleep?
Cats are naturally at their most active at dawn and dusk.
A relaxed happy cat will sleep where, when and how it chooses to!
Kittens and older adult cats tend to sleep even longer than adult cats and the average cat enjoys up to 16 hours sleep per day!
How to train a cat?
Training a cat tricks can be rather difficult and requires patience.
Cats are described as ‘semi-domesticated’ because of their independent spirit.
One of the most effective ways is through a technique called ‘clicker training’ and it involves positive reinforcement of desired behaviour.
Choosing A Cat
Congratulations! You’ve decided to get a cat. But what kind is best for you? Should you get a pedigree cat? A long-haired cat, or a short-haired one? Male or female?
One thing’s for certain – you’ve got lots of cats to choose from.
You may even be wondering if you should get two or more cats, just to double or triple your fun, or to make sure they’ll never be lonely.
Just like her big cat cousins, your feline friend’s behaviour is driven by a wide range of natural instincts. By understanding these, you’ll get a much better idea about why she does the things she does.
Your cat is communicating with you all the time – you just have to watch and listen!
That way, you won’t fall into the trap of thinking your cat’s being naughty or stubborn … and you’ll realise instead that she’s just being a cat!
If there’s one thing that makes your cat special, it’s her independent spirit. But are cats actually more sociable than we think?
As well as grooming each other, cats also like to rub together their foreheads, cheeks, flanks and sometimes tails.
Independent as they are, cats will sometimes develop relationships with one another. Mutual grooming seems to play a part in this.
Like most cats, your feline friend probably loves to chat. But there's a difference between friendly conversation and keeping you up all night! If your cat is giving you ear-ache, don’t worry – there are lots of things you can do to help.
Frequent miaowing is often a cry for attention.
Showing her the door
Sometimes you just can’t win. First your cat is miaowing to be let out. Then she’s asking you to let her in . It’s just her independent spirit asserting itself. Luckily there’s a very simple answer – fit your door with a cat flap.
