So you think you know cats... read on

Post by Stardust on 20th October 2016, 21:02

Did you know that a group of cats is called a “clowder”?

I didn't. I read it on the internet along with many other interesting things I didn't know about cats, such as:

"In just seven years, a single pair of cats and their offspring could produce a staggering total of 420,000 kittens."
Yikes! surprised

"Approximately 24 cat skins can make a coat."  no-no

"In 1888, more than 300,000 mummified cats were found an Egyptian cemetery. They were stripped of their wrappings and carted off to be used by farmers in England and the U.S. for fertilizer."

Huh? crybaby angry


I read them here (99 interesting facts about cats):

That's a great link, Stardust.  I did enjoy reading through all those cat facts.


Number 95 is the best one:  
In Holland’s embassy in Moscow, Russia, the staff noticed that the two Siamese cats kept meowing and clawing at the walls of the building. Their owners finally investigated, thinking they would find mice. Instead, they discovered microphones hidden by Russian spies. The cats heard the microphones when they turned on.

In Vietnam, these four cats like to go for a spin on a motorbike with their owner.

cat  Yes, they all seem quite comfortable and happy, as if it's something they're well used to, all part of their routine.   You can tell they're well-fed and well looked after too.

Huff Post - Cats

Post by Stardust on 3rd November 2016, 07:42

Looking at Huffington Post and came across this "Huff Post Cats" with all the news just about cats. Nice one.

   catlick

I have to say the poor cat that endured being dressed up in some silly "disguises" must be extremely patient.

Lots of other great articles and videos on there and all for cat lovers.  purr

Not about cats but I fell out with my niece because she dressed her dog up in a ridiculous costume for Hallowe'en. I looked thoroughly miserable, even grumpy.

Did she disguise you in a silly costume too then, Feather? yahboocat
Or did you mean the dog looked miserable and grumpy. sidestep

That was probably a revealing lapse on your part, Feather, because you did indeed feel miserable and grumpy (?)

Not easy to be as positive when the nights draw in, it's cold and dark, and it seems more difficult to find reasons to be cheerful. Pets are such saviours in these circumstances, especially those that like to cuddle up and listen to our woes, like little Chica.

Pets are often more patient and understanding that other human beings.

Desirable residence for cats

Post by Stardust on 7th November 2016, 15:53

Feline playhouse with rotating turret created by Siberian engineer:

Pity it's a tank. OK for the resident army corps cat though.

He'll have to make a version for female cats next time. catlick

Hmmm ...  looking at the those photos, it's clear that the moggy is far from happy with "his new home".  surprised 
In every photo, his whole demeanor, the expression on his face & in his eyes, show that he is very uncomfortable with his situation.  It's obvious that he's trying to get out of it! 
A conscientious objector, perhaps?  A pacifist pussycat?  shtum

I suppose a female version would be pink and fluffy, but really they're probably happier with an ordinary cardboard box.
