Casper eats catnip. By that, I mean he eats it by the mouthful. "Chomp-Chomp!"
Whenever we buy him a pot of live catnip from the pet store, he mows it down to nubs before an hour has passed.
I've never seen a cat that eats catnip like, "Om! Nom! Nom!" ;)
I agree! Cats have claws. It's an essential characteristic. It's part of what makes a cat a cat.
There is a short story by Nathaniel Hawthorne called "The Birthmark."
It's about a scientist who marries a woman who is perfect in every way...
Not all fish have mercury but, yes, some do.
It depends on the species and the location where they live and feed.
Some species of fish are carnivorous. Small fish often pick up toxins from the food they eat but they don't build up to dangerous levels in one particular specimen. However...
I truly don't think that people understand what declawing a cat really involves.
I feel certain that most people think that it just means removing the external part of the claw. As I said, they think it's like a permanent manicure. They have no idea that declawing a cat means amputating its...
It’s okay. There is a lot of misinformation floating around the internet.
Do you remember how people thought that drinking bleach was a way to prevent COVID-19?
There’s that stupid internet meme about kids eating Tide detergent pods, too.
Sometimes dangerous things catch on.
Yes, the body...
The ingredient list for Churu Treats:
Natural Tuna Flavor
Vitamin E Supplement
Green Tea Extract.
Other than tuna, there isn't much nutrition in those treats. It's mostly tapioca, guar gum and gelatin. They throw in some vitamin E and some...
I'm sorry to disagree but I would NOT recommend putting hydrogen peroxide in your cat's food or water.
Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is a strong chemical, even when diluted down to the concentration of 3% which consumers can buy at the drug store.
Hydrogen peroxide can cause burns, pain, and...
Here's a picture of Casper we took tonight.
A fluffy blanket to lay on, a soft pillow to make biscuits with and a big pile of yarn to tussle in... It's Cat Heaven! ;)
(F.Y.I. We always supervise Casper when he plays with yarn and we always put it away where he can't get into it when we're...
Casper's favorite toy is a rope. We made it by twisting a long piece of yarn into a thicker rope.
Take a long piece of yarn, ten feet long or longer, and double it over then tie the loose ends to something stationary like a doorknob or the leg of a chair. Put a pencil, a chopstick or...
One thing to remember is that you need to let the cat catch the toy every so often or else they will lose interest.
I always go by the rule of letting Casper catch the toy at least one out of every four tries. Yes, if we don't let him catch it, he will get peeved off and quit playing... I...
Just remember that revolution does not require belligerence.
Most people, when confronted, will stick to their beliefs even when they know that they are wrong. It's a form of narcissism and it's extremely common.
Instead of considering the information being presented, people will dismiss what...
Probably, the best way to stop people getting their cats declawed is to teach them what the procedure actually entails.
I believe that most people think it's just like a permanent manicure. They don't realize, nor do they stop to think that declawing a cat means amputating part of its toes...
Casper will come to us and sit at our feet and give us a look that says, "Attention me!" Then, when we lean down to pet him, he'll move away, looking back, like he wants us to follow him. If we follow him, he'll lead us to the place where he wants us to go.
Sometimes, he takes us to the...
Yes. I can recommend cat proof screen, too. :)
I put cat proof screen in the sliding screen door at our back patio. It works just as advertised.
Soon after we adopted Casper, I replaced the screen because he was pouncing at the birds and squirrels, outside. I didn't want him to break...
