Why Does My Cat Bite?

I get asked the question a lot "why does my cat bite?" followed by "how can I stop it?" While each situation and cat is different I will list a few of the more common reasons cats or kittens bite.

1. Play:
Cats learn behaviors from an early age and one of them can be aggressive play. I see so many cases with people using their hands and fingers as a toy or they wrestle with their kitten, thus teaching them you are a fun object to attack and chew on. Once kitty is a full grown cat the game isn't that much fun anymore, for both the pet and pet parent because injuries can occur. I can't stress enough to never play using your hand as the toy. Nothing good comes from this type of game, trust me. That being said, teach your kitten to play with toys. Find out what kind of toy your cat or kitten likes better. All of my cats tend to favor wand based toys. It's also up to you to make a game out of the toys. You can't throw a few toys on the ground and expect …

Cats & Vaccines

This gorgeous boy had to get some vaccines yesterday. I keep all of my furbabies up to date with their vaccinations and you should too. My kitties rarely ever go outside, but I still get them all their shots just in case. You never know. I once had one of my indoor only kitties get let out by an old roommate. The cat was missing for three long weeks. I was in agony not knowing where my baby was or what could be happening to him. Lucky for me, he showed back up but not without some very serious injuries. I never vaccinated him for outdoor stuff because, he was only indoor. Well, many years later I lost him to Feline Leukemia. The only time he could have contracted it was during the time he was lost. I was devastated. He could have lived a much longer life and I learned a very hard and valuable lesson.

That being said, Loki is normally a very active and spazy cat. Call it a Bengal thing. However, after three vaccines yesterday I could tell this morning he was feeling a bit blah and ten…

Adopt!

Guys, this is so true. Don't look away. Give them a chance. Life is too short but, it's even shorter for animals. Help give a great life to those in need. I promise you won't be disappointed.

A New Chapter

I have decided to begin a new chapter in my life and to be honest I am not sure why I haven't done this sooner. I think it must have been the lack of time. Now, I have extra time and I have chosen to follow my heart.

My writing still comes and goes. I am working on a project, but not actively. I haven't found a way to get back into it full time and if I am being completely honest my heart hasn't been all that into it the last few years either. Besides the craft of writing and my family there is a huge part of my heart that can do good elsewhere.

Cats.

Yes, you read that right. Cats. Anyone who knows me can tell you that I am a crazy cat lady. My husband might have cut me off at only owning three, but my heart is too big to only love just my furbabies. I want to love and save them all. Ever since I was little I would always be bringing stray cats home begging to keep them. I've had cats my entire life. Special needs cats, grumpy cats, normal cats, shy cats, you name th…
