Drug Addict Hooked on Catnip

Almost all cats can easily get hooked on catnip. Here’s “another one bite the dust!”

Cats can’t help themselves. The vast majority of the cats can’t resist catnip. It’s not just cats but also leopards and cougars. They break the catnip, they eat the catnip, they sniff the catnip and finally roll themselves in the catnip.

Some people claim that the …

Georgie the Cat

Georgie is an old cat and he pretty much live in “his” cube. It’s been a couple of years that he lives in this cube. He only gets out for the “intake of food” and for the outtake. He likes to hide in his cube. He’s not really hiding, since he doesn’t hide his head, but his head stays in the cube.

Georgie is …

A Very Uncooperative Cat: Vancouver, BC

Puss-Puss on handler’s shoulder

Puss-Puss is a very uncooperative cat. He doesn’t want to have his photo taken. Never. It’s not that he has a bad day here and there. With Puss-Puss, everyday is a bad day when there’s a camera involved. Normally, I make my “Daffy Duck” imitation. They are always surprised and look to see what’s that sound.

No!… Not Puss-Puss. He was …

Some Cats Own the Place

Cat Sitting on Counter

Some cats live in a place. They are just residents, they go through a place. They have a bed, a bow to drink and to eat but these cats are just residents.

Some cats own the place where they live. This happens more often with indoor cats, but not with all indoor cats.

The desk becomes their place and the humans have to work around them …

The Last Few Sunny Days

Cat in Window

Cat in Window

It’s fall, it’s sunny and the days are getting shorter. It’s getting colder and the cats know it. There are a lot less cats roaming the streets. Even indoor cats know that it’s the fall and they take advantage of the last few rays of the sun by basking on the window ledge.

I walk by this apartment complex almost everyday, and this …

Starring Intensely: Vancouver, BC

Cat starring at my dog

Cat starring at my dog

This window is at street level and occasionally this cat is in the window in front of the curtain. My guess is that the curtain is there for privacy.

This cat is not looking at me, nor looking at my camera. This cat is starring at my dog which is waiting very patiently at my side until I’m done with the photo so we …

Tabby Cat Watching the World Go By

This cat is a “cool cat”. He’s sitting on top of the fence and he’s watching the world go by, actually me and my dog walking by him.

This image is a wide angle. We, my dog and I, were about 1½ meters away or about 5 feet. This cat is not afraid. He’s at full attention. You can see …

Smart Cat v. Dumb Cat

2 cats: brother & sister

Smart Cat versus Dumb Cat

These two cats couldn’t be any more different from each other but they are brother and sister.

Collie or Kolly, the male at the front, is a very dumb cat. The female, Molly, at the back, is a lot smarter. If there’s any danger, Molly goes back into the yard, near the cat door where she can go back in for protection.

Collie …

Siamese Cat Walking on Fence

This Siamese cat was laying on the fence. He saw me coming and walking with my dog.

He was at the back on the fence and when we walked by, he came closer to inspect the situation, most likely my dog.

BTW, he doesn’t have a collar and we, my dog and I, encounter coyotes regularly and it’s not just at night. I …

Worried Cat: Vancouver, BC

A very worried cat

A Very Worried Cat

This cat is worried. Should he run away or not?

He has the ears backwards like he was getting ready to attack. Why, because behind me, there’s a dog, it’s my dog. He’s not threatening, he’s behind me and he’s totally quiet.

He’s not attacking and I know it. Why? his eyes.

The difference between the attack mode and the …
