The healing power of purrrrs! #tgif

This morning Brucy couldn’t stop purring while rolling on the floor and sniffing my shoes. Despite it looking a bit strange, I must admit that cat’s purring is one of the most comforting and relaxing sounds that I have ever heard.

As it is Friday and I am sure many of you had a long week, as the best Friday-relaxation-treatment I suggest you cuddle your cat and listen to her/him purr. And further amazing wonders that cat purring does can be found in this infographic:

Today, I came across a whole bunch of photos of Brucy when she was a little kitten. Now, 2 years later, when she wakes me up 6 times a night because she wants to play/eat/run/bite my feet, I sometimes forget how cute and adorable she once was. I am sure many of you will agree that the kitten-days are the most blissful periods of owning a cat.

I know that it is an adopt-a-cat month and I will not lie, I am very tempted to adopt a cat #2. I would love to re-live the periods when your kitten fits in your palm as is too small to even jump on the sofa. Unfortunately, as I travel often, I am scared that finding a cat-sitter for two cats. But then Brucy would probably be excited to have a baby brother? What are your experiences with introducing a new cat into the family?

 

Cats just make everything better…

I know that it has been aaaaages since I gave you any news on Brucy and you will be happy to hear that she is doing well and is being naughty as always! To cheer you up on this Tuesday, I decided to introduce you to this lovely post  that collects together numerous photos of cats standing up. I mean, how cute are they?

Awful experiments on cats at the University of Cambridge

article-0-1E662A4500000578-342_634x356

Daily Mail published a horrific article today claiming that top UK Universities (including Cambridge) perform brain experiments on kittens. According to the article, the cats are regularly put thought horrific tests with their skulls broken and ­electrodes stuck onto their brains, ribs and spine. Those experiments are meant to help scientists find out more about problems such as the “lazy eye”.

During the experiments, the cats are paralyzed to stop them from moving and are killed following the tests. I don’t know how accurate the article is (it is Daily Mail in the end of the day), but if at least a bit of this is true, it is really awful and the Universities should be ashamed for such tests.
