Coming up with things to write about when it comes to our feline friends is limitless but I just have to talk about this topic because our kitties definitely know how to turn ordinary situations into extraordinary moments.
About a week ago I was changing sheets on our bed. This is normally quite a large feat as we all probably know. Fitting the duvet inner into the sheet, pillows that are unusually puffy because I have neck problems are like fitting a square peg into a round hole. So, as I am in the middle of this chore all 3 of my boys have to get involved in one way or another.
Over the years I have definitely noticed and realised that cats have a hierarchy system which has to be in place for a well balance both in their colonies or domestic environment. How I’ve realised this is because in both adventures I’ve had with cats (first Sasha and Dizi then Travis, Sancho and Scotch). Cats are territorial creatures, this we know, but how do you know that some of the unwanted behaviour is just purely acting out against the dominant cat/s? Here are some things to look out for in cats with territorial behaviour.
Over the last couple of months having the privilege of doing some extra research and readings on my favourite animal, the cat, I have come across so many articles, quotes and facts about our feline companions that highlight specifically how special they actually are. Yes, I’ve written about their different personalities, why women generally are attracted to cats more than men and so on. It is clear that our feline friends have some sort of meaning to us that can simply be explained by how they make us feel. So what do our cats really mean to us?
If you have read my introduction on the website you would have been introduced to all of my cats, both that have crossed rainbow bridge and the ones that occupy my home and life today. But I’ve wanted to go into this deeper, and I’ve wanted to share with you the greatest feeling of purpose that I have felt over the years of rescuing cats.
As much as I would love to rescue them all, I have rescued a total of 6, keeping 5 of those 6 and fostering 1. So this is the story of how I came to share my life with my cats, and how I came to falling in love with cats thanks to them.
