I’ve got a cat-tastic update for y’all. Remember last Thursday’s blog about “Thursday” the stray kitty adopted from the City Limits outdoor cafe? Heard back from Jodi Green’s nephew, Deron McCraw, that the kitty’s name is now “Merlin.” And he had his (ahem) ass-ets “fixed” last Friday and is settling into life as a pampered feline at Jodi’s house.
Doncha love happy endings? (pun intended…)
We love cats but don’t always understand them. But cats always have a reason for what they do, even if it seems bizarre to humans. Often, cat owners reward these strange behaviors without realizing it. That’s why many cats develop interesting and unique foibles. But cats around the world share some common behaviors that make owners go, “huh?” For instance, phone fanatics.
And why are cats attracted to plastic? Apparently the plastic tastes good, perhaps because often it’s made from petroleum-based ingredients. What about elevator butt, flipping, and privacy issues–why the holy heck do cats follow us to the potty? My latest Paw Nation article lists 7 weird cat behaviors, and what they mean. There’s bunches, more, though–what did I miss? what are other outrageous behaviors our cats (and dawgs?) indulge? Please share!
One of the biggest challenges cat owners share is SCRATCHING (hissssssssssss). What are some ways we can manage this natural behavior–and if’n y’all start recommending declaw surgery, there’s likely to be a cat fight in the comments section!
What are some of the best ways to naturally handle the pointy-sharp cat parts? Above is the latest ASK AMY topic…but even though I talked fast (HEY! no wise cracks!) couldn’t get all the tips in the short clip. So watch, kitty-kibbitz and add many several cents’ worth to get this topic covered cuz I know there are BRILLIANT cat savvy folks subscribed to this blog.
And yes, for those who asked, there’ll be ASK AMY videos coming soon to cover more crap-piocca dawg topics including how to address dogs eating their own or other’s shhhhh…t (ahem) schtuff. Don’t worry, I’ll give fair warning in case anyone’s in the middle of eating breakfast.
I love hearing from you, so please share comments and questions–and to stay up to date on all the latest just subscribe the blog, “like” me on Facebook, listen to the weekly radio show, and sign up for Pet Peeves newsletter with pet book give-aways!
