Cat behavior

While cats all too often turn a deaf ear to our well-meant calls for them, you might have noticed that they are more likely to respond to the pspspsps sound. So, is this really a thing? And, why is that?

Sleepy cats

Why do cats sleep so much?

Cats are curious creatures. They sleep for an average of 15 hours a day, and older felines may even catch some z’s for up to 20 hours a day! This makes you wonder: why do cats actually sleep so much?

Sleepy cats

Calling out to all sleepy kitties!

There are two types of cats: those who sleep in the cutest way, and those who sleep in the weirdest way. Which type is your furball?

Spaying or neutering a cat will completely change their personality

YOU’RE RIGHT!

While some of your cat’s behavior can be hormone-driven, their overall personality won’t change. A scaredy cat, for example, won’t suddenly become outgoing – no matter how much we want them to. Some negative behaviors can however be prevented or reduced by spaying or neutering your cat, such as spraying, mounting or fighting.

Chocolate is not only dangerous for dogs, but also for cats

YOU’RE RIGHT!

Chocolate contains a substance called theobromine, which cannot be metabolized by cats. As a result, the theobromine will build up in your cat’s body and lead to serious conditions, particularly liver failure. Some symptoms of chocolate poisoning in cats are restlessness, diarrhea, vomiting, increased breathing rate, elevated temperature, muscle rigidity, and seizures. Darn it, now you’ll have to eat all the chocolate yourself…

Indoor cats don’t need to be vaccinated or dewormed

Kittens from the same litter can have different fathers

YOU’RE RIGHT!

This phenomenon is called superfecundation and is fairly common in cats. A female cat is fertile for up to 7 days on end. Therefore, if she gets several male cats between the sheets – or leaves, in this case – during this period, her eggs can be fertilized by various males, causing the litter mates to have different fathers. Note that 1 kitten can only have 1 biological father though. That would be quite the family reunion, huh?

Why do cats like to scratch your stuff?

It’s pretty annoying when your cats scratch up your precious belongings, so we explain why they do so and how to stop it.

Carrots

Is carrot good for my cat?

Wet food for cats increasingly contains vegetables. While our little carnivores do need a diet that consists mainly of meat, carrots do have several benefits to bring to the mix.
