Cats could eat all day long, especially when you keep giving them their favorite treats. But who doesn’t like to spoil their cat? Guilty! It has been estimated nearly 60% of cats in the US are overweight. Is your cat one of them or are they just preparing for winter? This is a common issue among domestic cats. Especially for older cats, since their metabolism tends to slow down. What can you do about this?
Do you have more than one cat at home and you see them fighting sometimes but don’t know what to do? A cat fight is actually a natural behavior. But there is a reason cats fight.

It seems empty boxes have a strange attraction on cats that usually can’t be resisted. You buy a nice new accessory for your cat, everything is set up and ready to go. The only thing missing is your cat hanging out in it. But when you take a look, your little purry friend seems to prefer the empty box to take a cat nap. Sounds familiar?

Kneading, it’s a common behavior for domestic cats and as a cat owner, you have without any doubt already seen this before. It’s when your cat uses its front paws to push in and out, while alternating between left and right. It can often be seen on soft surfaces. For example, on a blanket, on a pillow and even on humans (yes!). Besides that, it’s incredibly cute when your cat performs this motion! But what’s the reason for cats to do this?
