One of the biggest questions that people with cats will ask themselves is whether or not they should let their cats be indoor or outdoor cats. Many people will make arguments on this subject and the majority of them will tell you to keep them indoors. This is fine for some cats - but what about the ones that love to be outside? I owned a cat that did all it could to get outside. We were afraid something would happen to her so we never let her - but she did end up by escaping every chance she ...› Continue reading

We've all seen them - cats that troll the neighborhood, begging food and sleeping on - or under the cars. And we all know that's no way for a cat to live, right? (At least not if you want your cat to live more than a couple of years.)

Cats sleep a lot, have you noticed it? It's a natural part of being a cat, I'm convinced, because it's a seemingly universal trait. And really, cats kind of move at their own pace, don't they? However, should you give your sedate kitty a deep whiff of catnip, the party will come alive. Suddenly this sedate, dormant feline will 'wake up' and frolic and be as frisky as a kitten again.
Two to fifteen minutes pass by and your cat comes back down from the moon and returns to the same sedate ...› Continue reading

Successful cat litter box habits stem from many different
factors. A small investment of time pays off big with timely,
periodic cat litter box cleaning. The best "Thank You!" from
your cat is when she deposits a gift in her clean cat litter box.
Why should you empty out the old litter and scrub the box? As
your cat uses the box, she uses her claws to scratch litter to
cover her urine and feces. Cat urine gets into these cracks and
begins to smell so bad after awhile that your cat may begin ...› Continue reading

I've got a really soft spot for cats and dogs. And usually I don't worry too much about their unsociable aspects like hole digging and biting and scratching, especially if they are outside animals and working dogs.
But once you allow an animal to live inside your personal space, whether it is in the house or just in the yard - and if you have young children, the animal must learn to live by the rules of household living.
The cat when older does not miss being able to bite its owners and its ...› Continue reading

the last few drops of coffee that has left a stain in the
carpet. The morning paper, which you were unable to finish
reading, is torn in shreds. Now is the time to put a stop to all
of that and train your cat. When you get home at night after
