Sometimes it is nice to look at some funny cat pictures as a respite from the serious stuff. Here is a small selection with a few comments. You may have seen some before.
Put a harness on a cat that has never worn a harness and what is likely to happen? The cat rolls over and is uncooperative. Cats don’t really like harnesses unless they have been trained to accept them by wearing them since kittenhood. People have different views on cat harnesses. For some sorts of cats they are essential, such as F1 Savannahs. You can’t let some cats wander around free.
Sometimes when cats rest they rest in what we would consider to be uncomfortable positions. My cat sleeps in this sort of position sometimes. I am not sure where it comes from. Perhaps it is just comfortable for a cat.
This has a serious side. Cats do wait for their human companion to come home. I know mine did. She would be just inside the front door. Bless her. I loved her dearly. It all becomes history as she died about 18 months ago.
We can all relate to this; giving our cat a pill. There are umpteen different ways of doing it. My preference is a pill gun. It is pretty effective. Or putting the pill in food but cats are very sensitive to that. It does not always work. In fact it tends to fail. Has anyone got a clever idea? Vets have a easier time giving a pill to a cat because cats are more pliable and cooperative in a vet’s surgery.
We all have our ways to stroke our cat. Whatever way it should be gentle and it should be a way that pleases our cat not just us.
