What Food Makes Bengal Cats Happiest?

Beautiful Bengal Cat Photo

Beautiful Bengal Cat Photo

As you may be aware, most cats today come from wild background and wild cat heritage.
 In those days, the bengal cat ran wild, ate no tinned sardines, no pelet cat food and had no preservatives in its food.

The Bengal Cats were sporty, hunting smaller creatures to eat them, wild and happy!

Todays domesticated cat, (and especially the bengal cats) still have it in their blood to hunt and love raw foods.
Bengal cats, although domesticated are still wild in their hearts!
As much as it may disgust their owners, bengal cats just love eating that raw chicken or fish and tearing the skin and meat off it’s bones.

So to make your bengal cat happy, give him/her some Continue reading

Persian Cats Breed Information

All About the Persian Cat Breed

Pretty Persian Cat Photo

Pretty Persian Cat

The Persian Cat is a longhaired cat characterized by its round face and short muzzle.

Its name refers to Persia, the former name of Iran, where similar looking cats live.
Persian cats were first bred by the English, and then mainly by American breeders after the Second World War.
In Britain, Persian cats are mostly reffered to as the ‘Longhair’ or ‘Persian Longhair’.

Selective breeding of the Persian cat carried out by breeders has created a wide variety of different coat colors, but has also led to the creation of increasingly flat-faced Persians.

A show-quality Persian has an extremely long and thick coat, short legs, a wide head with the ears set far apart, large eyes, and an extremely shortened muzzle. The breed was originally established with a short muzzle, but over time, this characteristic has become extremely exaggerated, particularly in North America.
Persian cats can be any color  including  Continue reading

Amazing Fat Cat survives 5 Story fall and Hawk attack

Amazing Cat Story: Eddie, the Super-Cat!

Eddie the fat cat

Eddie the fat cat

It was dawn on the upper West Side  when a young woman was awakened by a terrible loud screech, mixed with a terrified meowing of a cat.

Running out onto her fifth-floor balcony, (where minutes before her beloved cat Eddie had been sleeping on a bench) she was just in time to see him being lifted up into the air by a red tailed hawk.

All that was left behind of her beloved cat, was shreds of fur, broken nails, and feathers.

Heartbroken, and weeping the woman,  ran out into the street  looking everywhere, hoping at least to find his body to cry over even if he were already dead.  Whomever she turned to for help, told her it were a pointless waste of time, as he was surely dead.

Her beloved Eddie, her companion in her lonely Manhattan flat, suddenly gone forever!

“I walked for hours all over the neighborhood and up Riverside Drive, sobbing, looking for his body,” she said.

“I went to all the hawks’ nests. I put up signs with Eddie’s photo. I was heartbroken!”

Nothing seemed to help. No one had seen him. Not even his body was found. Eddie had vanished.

Or so it seemed, until a neighbor called her up to say he’d found her cat.

This is what happened:
When the hawk picked up Eddie, he didn’t realize what a heavy load he was taking up.
You see, Eddie is a 15 pound fat white cat, and that is a mighty weight for a 4 pound hawk.
He managed to carry him for about 50 feet, before dropping becoming too exhausted and dropping him.

Like a heavy rock Eddie headed towards the ground towards a sure death from the height of 5 stories.
However, by a Continue reading

Tips for Cat Scratching Furniture and Cat Trees

Is Your Cat Scratching Up all your nice Furniture?

Tips before you Buy a Cat Scratching Tree Or Cat Furniture!

Cat Scratching Tree Silver Plush

Cat Scratching Tree Silver Plush

If you are going through with your cat, even just half of what we went through with the cat scratching problem, then i feal very sorry for you.

We almost gave our Cats away.

They scratched up our furniture so badly, that after trying every other technic we could think off, my mother went nuts and told me if I couldn’t think of a way to stop cat scratching furniture, our cats would be out!
What a horrible thought! I imediatly started thinking of ways how to stop the cats scratching our furniture. But nothing helped. Our Cats still scratched our funiture and it only got worse.

At least until one of us finally had the great idea to get our cats some of their own Cat Scratching furniture.
Hopefully we would train our cats to use the scratching tree and they would stop scratching our furniture!

Well, we got our cats the scratching tree for cats and I have not much to say after that for they certainly left our furniture alone.
A bit of training and guiding them to scratch the cat tree and our furniture (and cats) where saved!

What Cat Scratching Tree is the Right one for my Cat?

Brown Cat Scratching Trees

Brown Cat Scratching Trees

That depends on your cats size, climbing skills and age.

For younger cats, I would certainly advise you to buy a small cat scratching tree, since young cats (kittens especially) are often very jumpy and careless. Therefore, your cat might get carried away in a game on the cat climbing tree and suddenly fall of it onto the floor and get hurt.

Although cats almost always land on their feet, there still is a chance that your kitten might fall of the cat scratching tree and land on it’s back and get injoured.
This has once happend to our cat Mio, but since the cat condo was a low one, he luckely got up again and climbed back onto the tree.

For Cats with better climbing skills a tall cat tree is a nice challenge for them.
A good excersise for cats is climbing trees and therefore climbing up tall cat trees strengthens your cat muscles and arms.

Large Cat Condo

What size Cat Tree is Right for 2 or more Cats?

A large Cat Scratching Tree is good for 2 or more cats since it has enough space for all of them to sit on.  In my opinion, a good cat condo tree for 2 or more cats would be a wide cat tree with many ledges and corners for the cats to sitt on.
Also, wide ledges are preffered, since some cats like sitting together on a ledge or like to sleep near eachother.

Sometimes large cat condos or tall cat scratching trees are also good for many cats since the cats can then climb around on it and then leap down on you from above. :lol:

Cat Scratching Furniture for Indoor Cats?

What size Scratching Furniture would be recommendable for indoor only cats?

I would say, like the above, lots of room to scratch; therefore a large cat scratching tree.
Even better, i would recommend for indoor only cats a very Tall cat scratching tree, since they cats can then climb on their tree and excersise themselves, like in nature..

Go here for a huge variety of cat scratching trees, cat condos and cat scratch posts.

True Cat Rescue Stories from around the world!

Cat Rescue Story Smoky

Smoky is a brown tabby cat who nearly didn’t make it. We found him crawling along the pavement as a very young kitten. He was heading for a busy road and was suffering from terrible cat flu. His eyes were all glued up, so he couldn’t see a thing and his fur was dirty and matted. He really was in a bad way.

We think that he had come from a nearby graveyard where a group of feral cats had been living. By the state of him he had obviously been abandoned by his mother. We scooped him up and took him to the vets. It really didn’t look good for a long time. He stumbled around a lot as he couldn’t see and he found it difficult to eat.

We had to stay with him constantly for the next few days and spoon-fed him tiny amounts of warm milk. Luckily he did recover, although he has been cross-eyed ever since and we think that his vision has been affected, but generally he is a very lovely cat.

Funnily enough he has never wanted to go outside his whole life even though we have encouraged him. I think he just wants to feel safe and secure after his ordeal as a kitten. Smoky is now 13 years old and has given us many years of fun and companionship and is a very happy cat as you can see from his photo.

My Sweet CatAffair On FaceBook

Proof that Cats Can Also have TRUE Love!

It all started this way….
I came onto facebook with my paws first and left a long trail of posts, pictures and happy thoughts behind me. I met nice new cat friends, socialized with other cats and match-maked some of my best girl friends to other male cats I knew. I had fun! NO, what am i saying? LOTS of Fun! Tons of it!
I saw  my best friend Aladdin married to another pretty white girl cat Snow and spend hours chatting back and forth and going to catting-out-parties.

I made a group and got almost 2000 members in a short while.

Everything was going fine! I was happy…but….there was SOMETHING which I was missing. What was it? I wondered about it for a while and watched how yet another happy catcouple was going to get married. Just then it hit me!

I had been for almost 2 Years on facebook and had NEVER, I say it again, NEVER had a date in my entire LIFE!!

How very sad.

Then one day, without ever suspecting it to happen, I was suddenly invited out on a date by a cute looking, good natured cat named Fonzie Cat!

True Love from first sight!! *happy sighs*

Me and Fonzie under the Rose Arch on our first Date!! Falling in love already....

And well, it didn’t take too long for us two to fall in love! Actually it happened that same day!

Ever since then, we’ve been happy and loving eachother madly, running off to some lonely nature spots and having fun climbing trees together, cuddlying on benches and purring in unisome!

And Lately, We’ve been starting to write eachother Love poems.

This is the first one I wrote Fonzie:

Fonzie Dear's Poem

Fonzie Dear's Poem

And this is the one Fonzie wrote back to me! Isn’t it sweeeeet?

What would you write him back if you were me?

I wrote him this:
~ My Fonzie Dear ~

When i see your little wet nose,
I feel a tingling sensation from down in my toes
and feel like kissing you from head to toe,
but even that my enormous love won’t be able show!

When I look into your eyes,
through my heart a love bird flies,
and it chirps about your kind deeds,
and plants many more life long love seeds!

Forever mine,
forever with me,
Forever I’ll love,
Forever with you I’ll be!

My Love For Fonzie I can’t express,
and even he it can only guess,
for so large is it,
that only a bit,
can i show,
everyday that with him I go!
XXXXXX

I LOVE YOU FONZIE!!! <3<3<3

Australian Wild Cats Poisoned In Order to Save Parrots

Cats Poisoned in Hope of Saving Endangered Western Ground Parrots

Wild, Feral Cats being poisoned in Western Australia

Wild, Feral Cats being poisoned in Western Australia

Poisonous baits are being dropped by plane in two  national parks in West Australia in order to kill off feral cats preying on the Western Ground Parrot.

The Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC) says the western ground parrot is one of Australia’s most critically endangered species, with fewer than 140 of the birds known to be alive.

In an attempt to fend off the rapid decline, the DEC have begun trialling cat baits in the Fitzgerald River National Park and Cape Arid National Park on WA’s south coast.

The two parks are the only places where the parrots still survive.

DEC ecologist Sarah Comer thinks that the feral cats are the major factor in the parrot’s decline. She also said that the effectiveness of the baits would be closely watched.

“The first batch of Eradicat baits were dropped by plane in the Fitzgerald River National Park in mid April, with more bait drops following over the past few weeks,” Ms Comer said.
“A number of cats are being radio-tracked, and it is hoped we will get clear evidence of mortality following the baiting.”

Kittens Saved Moments Before being Crushed to Death in a Garbage Truck

Bin Men Saved the Day! (And the Kitties)

This is 'Bin' one of the abandoned Kitties

This is 'Bin' one of the abandoned Kitties

Three little kittens can thank their lucky stars for being spotted and saved by vigilant bin men, seconds before being crushed to death in the back of a refuse (garbage) truck.

The eight-week old black and white kittens were found stuffed into a shoe box in a garbage bag, last Friday by refuse workers in Montague Road, West Hendon, while they were on their rounds collecting garbages.

They had been about to chuck the garbage bag along with other rubbish into the powerful crusher at the back of their truck when one of them suddenly caught sight of the kittens (or perhaps heard a little meow from inside one of the plastic bags).

Upon finding the kittens, they spoke to a local resident who agreed to rehome two of the cats and took the last of the trio to The Mayhew Animal Home in Kensal Rise, where staff have named him Bin because of his ordeal.

Mayhew CEO, Caroline Yates, said: “It is hard to comprehend that anyone would leave three vulnerable kittens trapped in a shoebox left for a fate of certain death.”

“There is no excuse for dumping any animals in such a cruel and heartless manner when there are many charities and organisations in London to approach for help.” A spokesman said.

“Luckily they were found in time and a compassionate member of the public brought one of them to The Mayhew to find a safe new home.”

My Comments:

What do you think about this? Would YOU do the same thing to your kittens if you couldn’t find a home for them and wanted to get rid of them? Could it be that the person who threw them out was somehow hoping that they would be found by someone kind and rescued? Or do you think that they were simply cold hearted and mean?

Comment below.

Thanks for reading and I hope none of you will do the same to your kitties!

Molly – Little Kitty Rescued from the Snow

Molly the Rescued Snow Kitty!

Molly the rescued Kitty!

Molly the Rescued Kitty!

A true Kitty Rescue Story told by one of our readers and fellow cat lovers, Dalilia from Toronto.

Read it here:

This Story happened in the year of 2007, December, when my uncle was driving to my 15 birthday party.

You see, I never had any pets and I never really hoped to get any because my father never wanted to have any pets because he fears them, but on that day, I somehow had a premonition that something extrodinary was going to happen; and it did!

We were sitting at home waiting for him to come when all of a sudden the doorbell rang and there he was!

Mom ran to open the door and all of a sudden, she gave out a little cry and rushed back in clutching her hands together and crying out almost hysterically: “He’s got a cat with him! A half frozen up little creature! Oh come quick! It’s almost dead!”

I rushed up to him and found in his arms a stiffly frozen, little white Continue reading

Touching Pet Owners Story of Dead Cat

Read Peg’s Touching Story of her Dead Cat

I have found that many cat and dog owners have at least once in their lives suffered a loss of a wonderful friend (i.e. cat), a life long companion.
Such an occurrence is very sad. The sufferings and pain from a death of a cat or dog is sometimes a very difficult thing to cope with. Some people cry and grieve for years over a lost cat or dog, and some people forget sooner about their dead pet….

Here is a lovely little story about peg’s dead cat.

This is how it all began:

“Willy, my cat, came into my life at about 10 weeks old, following the death of my husband in 1997.

Willy was a special cat who knew all of my moods and was there for me every moment of every day.
He had always had what we thought to be a “hairball cough” that I treated with hairball remedy.

Last October the cough grew more persistent and I took him to my vet who thought he had feline asthma. He was treated with prednisone, but did not get better. In January the vet did a complete blood workup, which did not show any problems, so the prednisone was continued. Then on Feb. 17 I noticed he was having labored breathing so I watched him very closely for the next 2 days. On Feb. 19 (his 10th birthday), he wasn’t any better so I took him back to the vet. He did an x-ray and it showed a large mass taking up space in his lung. It was inoperable, and I had to make the decision to have him euthanized the next day.

I was there with him when the procedure was done and I kept my hand on his head until it was over. I have cried every day since then, and will continue to grieve for a time. I had him cremated and brought the ashes home this week. In the spring I will bury his ashes along with his favorite toy, which was a stuffed catnip mouse, in my flower garden. Since I’m a widow, I’ll probably be the only one there, unless my daughter and her family come out. I will put a pet grave marker on top of his grave.

He was my best friend, and he filled that hole in my heart with sunshine and joy every day of his life. He will never be forgotten. I have photos of him all over my house, because he went into every room in my house. He slept on the foot of my bed, and loved to snuggle in my lap.”

“I love you dear Willy and always will!”
