I have always had cats, both growing up and now as an adult. I have been a pet behavioral therapist for a number of years now. I started this blog to help other cat owners, with advice, tips, best product reviews, and to create a warm and cat friendly community.

Why Does My Cat Attack Me When I’m Sleeping?

By Phil / November 16, 2019

There are few things more annoying than being tucked up all nice and snuggly in bed – only to be treated as prey by your cat jumping on you while you’re sleeping and attacking you. I’m not talking about the cute little games we play with kittens chasing our toes or pouncing on our hands […]

Why Do Cats Not like Their Bellies Rubbed? (Or Do Like)

By Phil / November 16, 2019

Some felines love having their bellies rubbed, while some will try and rip your hand off if you dare think about it. It can be confusing. I get it, I’ve been there. I’ve had cats that would nudge me and roll over to get some tummy fussing, while others would get aggressive. If you have […]

By Phil / November 16, 2019

Have you ever been sharing some cuddles with your cat, only to find they nibble on your nose? It’s not that uncommon. It’s happened to me more times than I can remember, along with plenty of other cat owners. But, it does raise the question – “why does my cat bite my nose?” Well, there […]

Why Does My Cat Sleep on My Feet? (You’re Not Alone)

By Phil / November 16, 2019

Cats are fascinating animals, at least to me. My cats are constantly doing things that I don’t quite understand, and that’s fine. Some of the places my cats choose to sleep always baffle me. Like when I find one in the washing basket, halfway down the stairs, or crammed into a tight space. Just lately, […]

Will a Stray Cat Starve If I Stop Feeding It?

By Phil / November 16, 2019

If you have a big heart and can’t help feeding the strays in your area, I commend you. Strays need help, unlike feral cats they are not prepared to fend for themselves. The larger picture is finding out if they have owners frantically looking for them, but in the meantime, it’s perfectly fine to feed […]

If You Feed a Stray Cat Will It Stay?

By Phil / November 16, 2019

If you feed a stray cat will it stay with you or keep returning for more food? It probably will not hang around much longer than it takes to eat the food you’ve put out – at least not until you’ve earned their trust. But there is a very good chance it will return for […]

Are Salamanders Poisonous to Cats? (Some Are!)

By Phil / November 11, 2019

I like amphibians, lizards, and all kinds of small reptiles. So, I always enjoy seeing a salamander scurrying across the floor – as does my cat. Most small creatures and this includes salamanders, are the perfect prey targets for cats. They move quickly, are often willing to get close to cats, humans, and other animals, […]

Are Skinks Poisonous to Cats? (No, Here’s Why)

By Phil / November 11, 2019

I like skinks, I find them interesting. The problem is, so does my cat and most other cats. And while my intention is to get a good look at a lizard doing what lizards do. A cat’s motivation is to play the hunter and get a hold of them. If you know there are skinks […]

Why Do Cats Lay on Their Backs? (It’s interesting)

By Phil / November 11, 2019

One of the behaviors that has always fascinated me about my cats is why they lay on their backs. I say this because as most cat owners have found out the hard way when a cat is laying on their back it can mean anything from they are deliriously happy – to extremely angry. This […]

Why Does My Cat Sleep on My Chest? (It’s all good)

By Phil / November 11, 2019

If you’re asking yourself, why does my cat sleep on my chest? You’re not alone. This is a fairly common and much-discussed topic among cat owners. It’s an interesting behavior because it’s clearly a very deliberate action on behalf of most cats. But, why do they choose to sleep, sit, and relax on humans’ chests? […]
