Catnip Corner

My main passions in life are cats and writing and this new section combines both quite nicely. This blog is the chatty bits which are usually found at the beginning of the Mewsletter and the Scratching Post but in a bid to make both of them more user friendly, I am cutting the chatter and putting it into a blog. I hope that you'll take time out to read them and more importantly, enjoy them! I always welcome feedback so please write to me using the contact us box.

Thank you for reading.

paws for thought

Paws For Thought

a place where you can stop off at any time of the day to rest a while; put your feet up; have a drink and relax – perhaps with your favourite feline on your lap or nearby.

Paws for Thought is a collection of quotations written by people from all walks of life on their passion for cats. I do hope you’ll enjoy them enough that you’ll want to come by often to just sit and find peace with your feline companion while you read.

Understanding our cats: Friend or foe

There has always been debate about multi-cat households; some feel they are good (‘after all, cats need company’) and some bad (‘cats walk alone!’) So what is the truth behind keeping cats in groups? Top cat behaviourist Vicky Halls explains.

Let’s begin by learning from the wild.  Cats have historically been described as asocial (antisocial) creatures, but more recent studies of feral free-living groups h

They are indeed social creatures that can develop close bonds with each other, despite having no biological need to develop social relationships to survive.  Feral colonies, formed predominantly of related females and their offspring, congregate in areas where humans have created plentiful opportunities to eat.  The amount of food available and the quantity and quality of other significant resources in the area will greatly influence the size of the group that forms.

It is important to remember that the capacity to be social is a relatively recent development in evolutionary terms so it is not inevitable that all cats will love each other.  In order to achieve harmony, the environment and social circumstances have to be just right. Even established groups actively resist intrusions from outsiders, using feline communication (scent, vocal and postural) largely aimed at avoiding strangers and maintaining a safe distance.

A Cats Purr

"Cats make one of the most satisfying sounds in the world: they purr ...

A purring cat is a form of high praise, like a gold star on a test paper. It is reinforcement of something we would all like to believe about ourselves - that we are nice."

Roger A Caras
