  • Cats like to sleep. Daily durations of sleep vary, usually 12-16 hours, with 13-14 being the average.
  • Cats love high places and like to climb. Most of them have a noted fondness for settling in high places or perching. Height gives the cat a better observation point, allowing it to survey its “territory” and become aware of activities of people and other pets in the area. Height, therefore, can also give cats a sense of security and prestige.
    What are you looking at
  • Most cats enjoy being petted and held. They are like to be stroked on their forehead, between the ears and also like to be skritched under the chin and along the throat. They are happy to be loved. Your cats love you and can read your moods. If you’re under stress, you may also notice a difference in your cat’s behavior.
  • Cats love to chew on grass, catnip, parsley or sage. Become a green thumb and plant an indoor garden for your cat! But be careful, many plants are toxic to your cat.
  • Cats love to do groom themselves by licking their fur, employing their hooked papillae and saliva. There’s no doubt that cats are self-cleaning. They spend about one-third their waking hours grooming themselves.
  • Cats like to hunt. By nature, cats are superb hunters who enjoy stalking their prey. Even well-fed cats like your cat will hunt and kill birds, mice, rats and other small animals in the vicinity.

  • Cats love to hide! If yours comes up “missing,” be sure to check in the bathtub, in your closet, in the dresser drawers, under a blanket or rug or anywhere else you can possibly think of!
  • Cats like to play and always find something to entertain themselves and anything soft and small that moves easily will attract them. They love routine, so try to plan play sessions for the same time everyday and of course they will enjoy it if you play with them.
  • Cats love closets, since they’re dark hidey holes full of fun stuff. Watch out! You may not want your cat to swing on your good silk clothing or rearrange your shoes.
  • Cats like to scratch. It’s not only a natural act, but a necessary one as well. Scratching is an essential element of cats’ communication, problem-solving, health, and security issues.

    Hi Syn….thanks for dropping by. Wow…I hope your first cats will giving you the very best impression, hah….:). It’s a bit hard to take care of them for the first time if you never have experience before but as time goes by you going to use to it. You have to understand your cat and make her comfortable with you and new environment so that you can feel how wonderful you’re to have her. Although cats is not intelligent as dogs, but they do understand our feelings can their mood normally change depends on our mood. The best way to keep your cat feeling comfortable with you, love you and listen to you is by understanding her and give full attention to her because cats love that. You will feel the contentment once she do give her to you. So, don’t hesitate to give your best of love to her. Good luck to you Syn..You’re always welcome to share your experience having a cat with us.
