Cat Info Titbits — 13 Comments

  1. I live in an acutely eerie old house and I am usually up till past midnight working on my computer and it gives me great comfort having my cat around even if she is usually already asleep nearby. I can see that lovely Charlie also likes to snooze next to your computer. They are just so sweet and precious. And Therapy Cat Piglet has a very endearing face and pair of the most soulful eyes and she is simply a source of joy to many.

  2. As a prolific blogger on various subjects i always distress myself from my writing by talking or playing with my cats.Unlike simple “computer Typewriting”, the art of writing requires thinking and imagination, also a knowledge of the subject, hence a quiet living environment.Have never ever experienced loneliness in a profession where being alone means being literary creative. I would advise all people living alone or involved in very individualistic pursuits to always keep a pet or pets, the therapeutic way to ward of loneliness and boredom or “Writers Bloc” as in my passion for writing.

    • Good advice Rudolph. I am a bit frightened of loneliness to be honest. I don’t want to be alone in old age. There was an interesting article in the Times recently about how older people who live alone are more prone to certain health problems. But cats are a great substitute to people and often far better. But can a cat totally substitute the company of a good person? Now there is an idea for another article!

  3. Hi Michael,

    Silver Vine is an herb I’ll be looking in to. Thanx for the lead. Cool stuff.

    Habitat destruction is a major issue for all animals – humans included. Let’s not forget that we’re also destroying our own habitat.

    Inbreeding is a problem. I’ve rescues several cats that suffered from inbreeding. They had lots of health problems. The oldest one lived to be about 12. Lots of vet visits – very sad.

    Standing in front of the bulldozers is an effective way to stop the madness.

    Glad that your cats hang out with you will you work on your computer. It feels companionable. I appreciate it when my cat hang out with me while I work. Or is it play? I get confused.

    • I’ve heard great things about silver vine. I know its quite available in the US too and that cats seem to love it. Furthermore if you have one of those cats who doesn’t feel catnip then it’s great to be able to offer him/her silvervine instead.

      • Good point. I might try and get some for Charlie. I wonder if it is effective against OCD 🙂 Might be. Might calm him down a bit and chill him out. When he grooms himself he goes at it like a madman.

    • Is it work? Building this website is….hard work. Not really. It can be hard and complicated etc. But it keeps me alive. I’ll try silver vine too as it seems promising. It might help my OCD cat.

      • Hi Michael,

        I know that being a webmaster is hard work. I’ve built two sites. Still, I consider it fun or “play”. It’s my main hobby.

        My main hobby used to be musicianship, but now being a webmaster has overtaken that. I never thought that musicianship would be overtaken by any interest. I still love keyboards, guitar, and recording though. I also enjoy writing songs.

  4. Thanks! I like Piglet a lot 🙂 – I think Sphnyx cats are very cute and attractive. I also think they have exremely expressive looks, perhaps due to the lack of hair – or I dont know why but they just seem that way to me. And great if they also draw interest in the name of all cats for the sake of cats.

    I also would stand in front of the buldozers for the animals and local indigenous people. You know what, it is a pretty extreme thing to do, but its the big shameless companies that started the extreme behaviour so it seems like the only way to make them hear you is to speak a similarly extreme language. **s holes should just sod off with their buldozers already. Infact, in a couple generations, if urban street culture doesnt manage to take over, perhaps all this big business and planetary pillage will come to an end. Alot more people now are educated than were before, so I think it can’t go on. Unless, like I said, urban street culture, which cares about nothing environmental, manages to overcome the educated populous and continue the extreme consumer atittude with it’s own edge of bling bling, whats up, the environment …f**k that sh*t man who cares about that sh*t anyway if I don’t can afford my mickey dee’s for me and my b*t*h then f*ck everyone and the planet – type atittude. Sorry, but it’s true ‘yo’.

    Thanks for the good news though 🙂

    • Hi Marc,

      Glad you like hairless cats 😀

      “Pillage” is a great word for corporations who do as they please all in the name of greed.

      Well said, I’m with you.
