It's been said that people that hate cats will come back as mice in their next life.
A Cat: An Introvert's Best Friend
“Hi Puff!” I exclaimed excitedly as my cat Teenie greeted me at the front door with a loud, jubilant meow. Puff was one of her nicknames, but she was actually a short-haired cat with light gray fur and a small amount of white fur. This was the greeting that I received every weekday afternoon from 2008 to 2010. I was attending community college at the time. I had classes during the day in most of my semesters. As a result, I would always return home around 5:00 PM at the latest. I was satisfied with this because I didn’t want to go anywhere at night. I preferred being in the comfort of my own home after dusk.
5 Positive Impacts of Cats on Mental Health
Despite the Crazy cat lady stereotype, cat owners may well be some of the most well-adjusted people on Earth. This is because owning a cat comes with many emotional and physical benefits. When thinking about emotional support and pets, generally, owning a dog comes to mind first. However, any cat parent will tell you that emotional support is not limited to dogs. In fact, cats can offer a different kind of emotional support, and often require less rigorous daily care on the part of their owner, making them ideal pets for those who suffer from depression or lack of energy.
How to Communicate with Your Cat
Are you a cat person looking for ways to understand your cat better and knowing what they're feeling at certain moments? If so, you definitely are the perfect candidate to read this article!
As many people know, furry family (AKA: dogs and cats) can be a much-needed balm on a troubled mind. I have suffered from PTSD and severe depression for several years. Part of this package includes cycling through different medications; but I have yet to find the right mix for my brain chemistry. While the medical industry figures that out, I take solace where I find it. I truly believe the unconditional love of fur babies can leave pawprints on your heart, and heal a great deal of sorrow. I have two such furries, a small terrier named Pumpkin, and her very best friend, a Cat named Nemoy. When I moved from Southern California to the City of Chicago, my treasured pets came with me to live with my very best friend, Daniel.
Simple Pleasures to Give to Your Kitty
There are many things in the world that make people happy, and for me it is cats. So I thought, why not try to make every cat as happy as they make me? Now there are so many different kinds of cats, and many have different personalities. Some do not cuddle, like my first cat, and some will follow you around “yelling” at you until you pick them up. But one thing that is true is every cat will purr. That is the sweetest noise a cat can give you. Your kitty is telling you that they are happy and content.

My Cat is Crazy
Cats are arguably the most common and loved pet in the whole world. They are soft, cuddly, and totally think they are superior to us. I mean, in a way, they kind of are. We humans take them in, we feed them, we clean their litter boxes, and we live for their affection. Cats literally have the BEST setup. We cater to their every whim, and we don't expect them to do anything to earn it that they wouldn't do naturally.
'Crazy Cat Lady'
Most people are familiar with the term "crazy cat lady," but what is it, exactly, that makes a person one? Usually this term is associated with someone who owns many cats, but I believe that it can hold multiple definitions.
You watch your outdoor cat as he romps in the grass, feeling the breeze, smelling for all the bugs. You watch, as he has this child-like fun with joyous abandon. You tried to make him an indoor only cat, so he can stay safe, but he just wasn’t happy enough. So you let him out, and this is the result.
Omar's Diary for Saturday 20th Jan 2018
My own Servants were finally able to spend more time around home this Saturday than they have been able to do so since May 2017. Up until last weekend they were fully committed for every weekend and bank holiday to looking after their equines. Equines must be so inferior to felines as they have been so demanding of my Servant's time. Alas now, they are being looked after full-time by other members of the Servant's species.
I Hated Cats
I have always told people, “ I hate cats,” and would list reasons why. They seemed needy—they stared into your soul, they would bite or claw randomly, they would come to you only if they wanted love and attention (which always seem to be when you’re busy), and they always put their butts right up in your face.
Gaining the Trust of an Orphaned Kitten
Adopting an animal has always been something I wanted to do, but there were so many "what if's" that I always backed out of actually doing it. So when my beloved cat passed away after being hit by a car, I can honestly tell you that adopting another kitten was the last thing on my to-do list.
