How Old is Your Cat?

Cats can live up to 13 to 15 years depending on their diet, lifestyle, and other factors. But do you ever wonder about the age of your cat's equivalent in human years? I got this from the site. Hope you find this helpful:

How Old is Kitty?

Cat Years Human Years
1 year 20 years
2 years 25 years
3 years 30 years
4 years 35 years
5 years 40 years
6 years 45 years
7 years 50 years
8 years 55 years
9 years 60 years
10 years 65 years
11 years 70 years
12 years 75 years
13 years 80 years


 Last night my little brother went to my room and told me that there was a cat killer on the local news on TV. So I hurriedly went outside to listen to the news. The bastard, JP Candare is a UP student who was reported to have been killing cats. PAWS animal shelter filed a case against him. Serves him right. Though honestly I want him to suffer more, physically, emotionally, psychologically. I got really curious so I searched for his blog in the internet and luckily I found his post in Multiply entitled "I killed Schrodinger's Cat". There he narrated how he tortured the poor cat. He said that he couldn't explain the untoward feelings he have every time he sees cats.

Then I suddenly remembered the infamous sociopath Kenny Glenn whose life was destroyed after the wrath of the netizens (especially 4chan's). For those who didn't know, Kenny Glenn is an american teenage dweeb who torture cats and post videos of them on the internet.

People like these exist. , and worst, they seem to feel no remorse at all while doing these.

Nursing Your Kittens

When kittens are born, it is best that they are always beside their mother. Just like newborn babies, they need to be kept warm all the time to prevent hypothermia. They also need to be groomed because they aren't capable yet of taking care of themselves. Newborn kittens need their mother's milk in order to obtain nourishment. Usually it takes 4 to 5 weeks for them to be able to take solid foods. I noticed that cats also wean their kittens like human beings do. During this time, we can help intervene by introducing semi solid foods to the kitten. Some pet stores sell these kind of food, although we could always make our own and feed it to our pet. Either of which you prefer is fine as long as you can provide adequate nutrition without harming your kittens. Always remember that aspiration could be fatal so make sure you assess their readiness to intake solid to semi-solid food first.

Fat Cats

What is more cute to a cat lover than seeing his/her cat fatten up? Almost everyday I google pix of fat cats. For some reason, I find them more irresistible more than the average-sized cats. >.<

O hai thar. I made a blog dedicated to domestic cats alone. The image above is a chart of house cats' colors and patterns. If you love cats enough you would dig deeper to get to know more about them.

All of the cats I've owned so far are moggies, a personally prefer these type of cats over pedigree ones.
