The Pet Talk blog features the adventures of Daisy the Curly Cat, a cat owned by one of our employees Abby.
Since Thanksgiving is just a few days away, I thought I would spend a little bit of time thinking about all the things I am grateful for, because I realize that I am a very lucky cat. There are many cats that don’t even have a home of their own, so the first thing I am thankful for is having a home with someone who loves me, a soft bed upon which to lay my furry head, and plenty of delicious food to fill my belly. I am also grateful to have a toybox filled with fun toys and a pantry stocked with plenty of cat treats.
Did you know that not every cat reacts to catnip? I am lucky to count myself among those cats that do enjoy a bit of catnip now and again. In fact, I like catnip in almost every form. But my very favorite way to enjoy catnip is stuffed inside a fun toy!
Professor Daisy’s Tips for Cats: Now that Daylight Savings Time has ended, your stomach might have trouble adjusting to your new suppertime. To tide you over until it’s time to eat, I recommend a delicious light snack like Fancy Feast Appetizers. My favorite flavor is Skipjack Tuna!
Tomorrow is one of my favorite days of the year… National Cat Day! This special day was founded in 2005 by the Animal Miracle Network in an effort to highlight the number of cats still waiting to find a home of their own, to recognize what great companions cats are, and to encourage cat adoption. I am FOR all of those things!
Ta da! I am revealing the costume I have chosen this year for Halloween, a Pretty Pirate outfit. I chose this costume for several reasons, not the least of which is the beautiful pink color. Pink is the best color in the entire world!
Do you see the little smile on my face? It’s because I’m in one of my favorite spots, up high. In case you didn’t already know it, vertical space is important for cats. For our wild ancestors, a high place allowed us to escape predators and to survey our territory from a safe vantage point. Domestic cats aren’t limited to keeping four-on-the-floor, we’re agile and able to take advantage of many vertical surfaces. If you have a multi-cat household, having lots of different vertical spaces helps us all get along more peacefully even if you live in a small home. When my brother Harley won’t stop pestering me, I often seek out a lofty spot to get away from him. Come with me and check out some more of the vertical spaces I use to get away from it all …
Did you know that October is National Animal Safety and Protection Month? Well, now you know! This special month is designed to promote the health, safety and well-being of all animals, and also to help people learn how to stay safe around animals. Because I’m a cat, I’d like to focus on pet safety today. Of course, I never do anything unsafe but my brother Harley is a different story. I’m going to use Harley to discuss some important pet safety tips.
