Strange Facts About Cats

cats

I came across this fun infographic on cats today – full of interesting facts, I bet, you didn’ know about our favorite furry friends! For example, did you know that cats take between 20 and 40 breaths every minute? Or that cats can’t see under their noses, so they struggle to find food when it is right under their nose? So cool! What facts shocked you most? What other fun facts about cat do you know?

Cat over-population of New Zealand

600px-kiwi-cat-stamp

I came across this fascinating article today about the Rangitikei District (North Island of New Zealand) trying to pass a petition to limit the number of allowed cats in the household to just three.

The reasoning behind is that there are too many homeless cats running around the streets, people have too many cats and do not get them neutered and spayed. The supporters say that there is a massive cat over-population and due to a high number of homeless cats, their children can’t play outside because of cat excrement everywhere.

However, many are against this proposal saying that the council can’t impose on people how many pets to have. What do you think about this? Is this too much or is the New Zealand council taking a right decision?

Heat wave

It’s been exceptionally hot in Paris this last week. Brucy is really struggling, the poor thing, and passes most of the time on the balcony. I try to give her food only in the mornings, because I don’t want it to overheat and change her water 3 times a day.

Her favourite spot at the moment is on out mini-balcony next to my avocado tree. Yes, it is a real avocado tree that I planted from a seed 🙂

How is your furry pet handling the heat? What are your tips for handling this hot summer?

Amazing cat bag!

Spynx cats – cute or scary?

One of colleagues at work, who is allergic to cat fur, asked me to do a post on Spynx cats. I hesitated – I will be honest. Spynx cats are not my favourites, in all honesty, they freak me out. But once I started Googling photos of spynx cats, I actually changed my mind and now I feel like they are actually kind of cute. What do you think about Spynx cats?

Cat coasters

This weekend, I went to a flea market in Paris at Porte de Vanves and bought terribly kitch coasters with cat. Yes, I am officially becoming a crazy cat lady! All the coasters are different and each cat has a cute “coffee” nickname – like Lady Latte and Double Espresso for 2 cute kittens.. Adorable, how could anyone resist??

New Whiskas commecial

Whiskas just launched a new adorable commercial in France. To summarize the plot for you – the ad starts with two, cute, baby pumas (leopards??) playing and exploring the back yard. Then they run inside the house and turn into adorable British Shorthair kittens. The idea is that Whiskas brings your kitten’s wild side out 😉

Now, I am not a fan of Whiskas food (for it is very low in meat) but their commercials are sooo adorble! What do you think?
