Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

Many people today love to keep cats for home pets. However, very few people take the trouble of understanding the most important aspects of a cat. This in turn leads to an unhealthy relation between the cat and her keeper. If you want to rear a cat at home, it is important to start by understanding the different phases of a cat. That way, you will be able to develop a strong and healthy relationship with your cat. Thankfully, there are so many sources of information on cats that you can turn to for advice on how to relate with your cat.

All in all, there are several important facts that you need to know about cats. Here, you will find a comprehensive trivia that is meant to teach you some of the key nuts and bolts of cats. Firstly, it is important to understand that there are over 500 million home cats around the world today. These cats come in over 33 different breeds. Secondly, cats are known to paw or knead to create their territory.  Another important aspect of cats is that they sweat through the base of their mitts. They then rub the sweat off as a simple mechanism of marking.

Cat’s urine grows brighter at night especially when a dime light shines on it. The cat’s nose comes with a special print that appears to have unique ridges similar to the ones found on a human finger. Most people who keep cats admit that they blow dry their cat’s fur after bathing. Cats express their love to people by quivering their tail around them.  But if you find her thrashing her tail, it means that she is not in good mood. The best thing to do at such a time is to keep distance. Another important fact is that only home cats carry their tails upright when walking.

Introduction to Cat Breeding

Wednesday, July 4th, 2012

Cats propagate at a rapid pace in the society.  Their gestation period is only 2 months long and they can have multiple gestation periods in a year.  Each time they give birth, they produce an average of 3 to 6 kittens at a time.  Kittens develop very quickly and even before they reach 1 year old they too are also able to reproduce.

Many people who have cats as pets do not spay them as it is sometimes inconvenient to take them to the vet or some prefer not to pay money for this procedure.  Instead, they abandon kittens on the streets or on parks and hope that passer-bys might want to adopt the kittens they find on the streets.

People who enjoy breeding their cats do it either for hobby or to participate in competitions.  So there are different levels of breeding.  The ones who do it for hobby find interest in the different mixed breeds that come out of breeding between two cats of any breed.  However, the breeders that do it professionally choose specific breeds and occasionally they produce top of the line pure breeds.  These cats can be sold at very high prices.

Professional breeders are very careful about what they do because a show cat will only win if they meet a very high level of standards that the contest requires.  Others however, breed for fun and they do not feel it is necessary for cats to be spayed.  In any case, breeding cats require a lot of care to ensure their kittens are born healthy and safe.  They should also be placed in a clean environment because new born kittens are vulnerable to infection until their immune system develops a little more.

People who are interested in breeding cats should be living in a spacious house as opposed to small studio apartment.  Cats deserve to walk around freely and they should have enough space to play and be active.  They should not be locked up in a cage.  It is important to keep an eye on the young ones so that they do not end up somewhere that might render them hurt or lost.
