Cat Neutering and Spaying

There are many people, myself included, who advocate having their cat spayed or neutered, also called sterilization or altering. Despite the ever growing media coverage of having this done to prevent a feral cat explosion, there are still many people who choose not to spay or neuter their cats and that is their choice.

Too many feral cats is one of the most publicized reason for those advocating the spaying or neutering of cats. In many areas of the country where feral cats exist in large numbers, some neighborhoods are trying to avoid these occurrences by setting up community programs to provide a low cost sterilization service for cat owners. This is done with the hope of convincing cat owners to do the responsible thing and have their cat sterilized and I personally applaud this sort of action. Kampanye di media sosial
We have had the same sort of program running in our small town for many years and I have noticed a dramatic drop in the number of feral cats running wild.

According to 2008 figures put out by The Humane Society of the US, there are around 6,000,000 to 8,000,000 cats and dogs entering shelters each year. Of these animals, 3,000,000 to 4,000,000 are euthanized yearly and around the same number adopted to families. Interestingly, around 30% of dogs are reclaimed by owners but only 2-5% of cats are reclaimed. There are 4,000 to 6,000 animal shelters in the US to service all these feral or lost animals.

The cats that are euthanized are usually not old or ill, although some may be injured. Most are healthy and often you will find young cats, even kittens being abandoned. Their only crime is that there are not enough loving homes for them and with no owners to house and

Seven Things You May Not Know About Your Own Cat

Longevity – It is said, give a cat three years for every human year and you have an idea of how old he is compared to us. Not so. A cat at one year old is capable of reproduction and fully able to take care of himself. A three year old human is helpless. Such mathematical formulas for understanding the ‘real’ age of an animal don’t work because their internal, and external developments vary and do not correspond to human development.

But did you know that the life span of cats seems to be increasing, from around twelve years or so several decades ago to eighteen or more and it seems now not uncommon for cats to live into their twenties? Not only advances in cat medicine but apparently in genetic changes as well are contributing to longer life and some cats live to be much older indeed. Several cats in Southern California have been reported to live as long as thirty and thirty four years.

Independent & Loners – Cats are thought to be solitary creatures by many, but anyone who has visited a farm where there are cats will find they congregate in colonies, sometimes nearing twenty in number and seem even to hunt together. There is little fighting because there is always one dominant cat which the others all accept, the rest being equal. At least until a new cat arrives and dominance must be re-established.

If you have an indoor/outdoor cat, as do I, you no doubt find him asking to be let out, even though he has his cat doors. Mine does daily, usually at night. I go to the door, open it and he eagerly runs into he mudroom, awaiting the opening of the next door, though both are equipped with cat doors. If

Cat Mythology

Cat Mythology : Most lower complex animals, invertebrates, fish, amphibians and reptiles probably have an ‘as is’ worldview and accept whatever comes their way – go with the flow. But once you consider relatively taller and more complex animals, such as birds and mammals, then the complexity of the brain becomes such that to a greater or lesser extent intelligence and the ability to think and think things out have to be considered.

Those of you who have companion animals, or even those of you who have just observed animals from a distance, may wonder what these animals look like and may even think about life, the universe and everything. That is, each animal must have some kind of personal worldview; perspective or point of view may be forever beyond our understanding – usually but not always.

I chose the cat in this particular case because I have owned a cat for most of my life. This essay could easily be a dog or a horse or any other pet mammal.

So what is a cat? Can we identify with them? Can they identify with us? Well, pet cats are fun; curious; adaptable; selfish; they dream; they love variety although they can also be creatures of habit; they can ‘think’ things out and make decisions; they have vocal language and body language; they show emotion; they have memory and therefore somewhat have a sense of history; they have the same sense organs as we do; they have their own likes and dislikes whether it is food; a place to sleep, where they want or don’t want to be scratched or rubbed or caressed; and in short, every cat has a very unique personality.

Cats are of course very self-absorbed, maybe a little more than the average adult human, but certainly … Read more

What Makes Cats So Loving
Fact

INTRODUCTION

The question of whether cat love is real or not may seem silly to those who don’t own cats. Dogs can claim the title of being man’s best friend, but anyone who has ever lived with a cat knows that they are too great to be friends with. However, some might argue that those who own cats apply human characteristics to non-human entities.

Well, those who argue that all animals care for their young simply out of instinct clearly don’t spend time with cats. This article contains helpful information about cats, along with anything you might want to know to help you and your precious cat live together.

BASIC INFO

Communication

Cat communication has many variations of vocalizations. They consist of meowing, purring, hissing, growling, roaring and grunting. Cats have feline pheromones and a number of body languages ​​too.

Adaptability

Like other felids, cats have a similar anatomy. They are very strong with quick reflexes, flexible bodies, sharp retractable claws, and extremely sharp teeth adapted for killing small prey such as mice.

Sense

Hearing

Cats are known to have extraordinary senses. The cat’s outer earmuffs pick up sound from all directions, which then travel down the ear canal to the eardrum. After sound vibrates in the eardrum, the middle ear converts the vibrations into sound waves and sends them to the cat’s cochlea and finally to the brain.

A cat can hear from twenty hertz to about 65,000 hertz. Since cats respond more readily to high tones than to low tones, … Read more

Living With Maine Coon Cats

Living With Maine Coon Cats : I’ve always admired cats of any breed for their independence, cleanliness and determination to go their own way.

I have 3 old cats and decided to adopt a kitten to raise because I had missed the fun that kittens brought into my life. After watching television shows about different types of cats, I fell in love with the Maine Coon and decided it was the kitten I wanted. I found a breeder near where I live. I’m so excited to visit the kittens and discover a new addition to my pet family.

Kittens that are only a few months old are much larger than other breeds and have long, beautiful fur and tails. I’m addicted!!

I brought my four month old kitten home to introduce him to the whole family. My two big dogs and 3 older cats were very curious and sure enough, the kitten was hiding under the bed where all the kittens seemed to hide when they were scared.

After hours of trying to persuade him to come out of his hiding place, he slowly appeared.

Misty, as her name suggests, doesn’t seem bothered by all the attention she gets and soon becomes a very lively young woman, creating chaos throughout the house, many ornaments falling and plant pots being investigated, especially the earthy ones for her to play with. !

I received a call from the breeder asking if I could take in another kitten since he closed his business, so, of course, I couldn’t refuse. I went to pick up this kitten that needed a home, to find when I got there that there were two kittens, who were quite sick and I could see they needed medical care. I debated with myself about why I should take on … Read more
