    Cats communicate in many different ways. Their primary means of communication is body language, but they also communicate vocally. Its up to us as their guardians to learn how to interpret their communications, but no matter how well trained a human may be in learning to speak feline, sometimes, we all wish our cats could talk. Apparently, somebody felt that this wish for better interspecies understanding deserved a national holiday, because believe it or not, today is National Answer Your...

  • What to Expect When Your Cat is Expecting

    Cats can become pregnant as young as four months of age, which is why its important to spay female cats before they go into their first heat. Im not going to mince words here: I feel strongly that allowing your cat to have a pregnancy because you believe that your cat needs to have the experience of giving birth, or your children need to witness the miracle of life, is unacceptable. There may, however, be circumstances when you find yourself caring for a pregnant cat. Perhaps you took in a...

  • Pain Management for Cats is Not Optional

    from The Conscious Cat

    Cats are masters at masking pain. This ability to hide pain goes back to their wild origins; in the wild, a sick animal becomes prey. While acute pain may be fairly obvious to cat guardians, it may be more difficult to discern whether your cat is in pain when it comes to chronic pain from conditions such as arthritis. Sadly, many veterinarians still overlook signs of feline pain, or are not aggressive enough in treating it.

    Pain management for pets has undergone significant changes in the past...

  • Conscious Cat Sunday: Minimize Distractions

    from The Conscious Cat

    Saturday January 17th, 2015 at 09:00 PM


    One of the many things I admire about cats is their ability to focus. If youve ever watched a cat stalk her prey, you know that even though the cat is very much aware of what is going on around her, she will not break her concentration on waiting for just the right moment to pounce. What seems to be so easy for cats can be an overwhelming challenge for humans.

    We are constantly exposed to a never ending stream of information and stimuli. Studies have shown that the brain cannot effectively...

  • Mews and Nips: A Wine for Cats?

    from The Conscious Cat

    Friday January 16th, 2015 at 09:00 PM


    Just when I think nothing I see on the internet can surprise me anymore, I came across a story about a Japanese company that launched a wine created especially for cats. Even though this isnt exactly news (the wine has been on the market for a couple of years,) this struck me as funny enough to share with you. The wine, titled Nyan Nyan Nouveau (which translates to meow Nouveau), and created by supplement maker B&H Lifes, does not contain any alcohol, but rather, a blend of vitamins with...
