I feel like I has had a long week guys. Really I do. I asked Mommie to peas take me and Mr.Penguin to the beach so we can relax, and she did! Here is a video of us at the beach...which looks and smells suspiciously like my kitchen..... but there are palm trees so I am not sure.
"Yes Cecil, it is very highly suspicious. But I come from cold water climates so I am not positive either."
"I cannot feel the sand between my paws and it does not smell right. I am leaving!"
...But anyways, I found this article today called Cat Facts-- Ten Facts About Feline Behavior. Funny enough, it was written by a bean, I am so serious. Let's see if he got it right...
- "I want to be alone."
Sometimes I want to be alone, but sometimes I want my Mommie.
- Kittens get their friendly traits and tendency to be social from their father's genes (mostly) and their mother's teachings.
My Mommie and Daddy are equally social thank you very much. They met at a party in college and got very social together.
- A kitten's socialization process is most important between 2-7 weeks old.
This is true. I did not have good socialization so I give the bitey a lot. Clearly it is not my fault.
- When recovering from a trauma, such as a car accident, cats can go through a second socialization process.
Peas, I hope that no cats I know has been in a car accident.
- Domestic cats descended from solitary creatures. Being solitary and hunting alone by nature, they have a limited set of communication skills for confrontation, especially body language.
Limited communication skills my spot 13! WHO has limited communication skills??? I have a blog and communicate internationally everyday!
- In order to make up for a limited set of communication skills, cats need to use scent markings to send and receive messages. They also need to be fast and agile!
You better start running! You cannot call my communication skills limited and get away with it!
- Your cat will rub her scent glands all over her territory in order to leave his/her mark.
Maybe I will and maybe I won't.
- Cats will often raise their back ends up so as to better scent a hand. They'll also often stiffen their tail, but keep it bent as they scent you up.
You bet I am raising my back end at you! ...limited communication skills....
- A vertical tail is a sign of happiness, and also used as a greeting.
- When the front paws are curled up and tucked in, and the back legs are outstretched to the side, your cat is relaxed and secure.
More like the cat is trying to take a nap, so take your SUPERIOR communication skills and get out of here
PS= Mommie had a better video of me and Mr. Penguin at the beach, but it was taking hours to upload! Has you had this problem?
