The life with a cat.

I'm not referring to men. Haha.

Cats are adorable and dog's bestfriends

Everybody agrees that dogs are man's best friends. Yes, but cats too. I was wrong about cats. I never knew that they were adorable that even dogs will love them.

But they are commonly known as natural enemies unless taught about how to behave socially.

Cats and dogs can be great buddies if they grew up together despite its quality of being different.

Silvester and Pochi


Cats are introvert

Cats are introvert. I can relate to them because I think my personality is just like them. They hate annoying things. They obviously dislike annoying people because of course they choose to sleep all the time. They don't want to be disturbed. REMEMBER that they are nightwalkers. They hunt at night using their night visioned eyes.

They are silent and does not really needs your attention. Feed them and they are fine.

They love to sleep a lot

They are not lazy but are sleepy heads, they are night crawlers. I worked before in a call center where I had to come in at night. Working at night is times two than in the morning. Now I understand why.

In a 24 hour period, the average sleep is 13 to 14 hours, they sleep enough to conserve energy for the night.

Did you know that cats are dreaming? You often see their legs and hands moving while sleeping or its eyes are rolling.

I have made a cross-stitch of a picture of a cat taking a nap on the colorful mat. They always do the short sleep.

Cats are playful too

Christmas balls one of their favorites. No wonder they will climb up your Christmas tree.

They enjoyed playing with dogs too. The only thing they can't play with is: WITH BIRDS. They love birds but not as a playmate but as MEALS.

But I have seen a bird that plays with our Cat Sylvester. It would ride on his back every time he's out in the morning. The bird is Maria Capra. Just wondering why they love teasing and playing with Sylvester. Hope I can get a video of it soon.

What's unique about them?

  1. Tongue
  2. Paws
  3. Whiskers
  4. Eyes -
  5. Body- they have flexible body

Hugsy and Friends

You can be a cat lover

Change is the only constant thing on earth. You might be surprised that one day. It started when my younger sister brought a cat home. It was given by her friend. She was so brave enough to let it in the house knowing that my father is allergic to cats and dogs. Let me correct myself, it was my mom who brought it home.

When my mom visited her apartment, she was wondering about the bad smell in her room. She was stunned when she saw the kitten playing with her toes. She started cleaning her room and decide to take the cat at home.

IT wasn't easy for my mom to explain to my father why we need a cat. My father was complaining. He said cats are smelly and dirty. It's five against one. That's the vote. My mom, my brother, my younger sister a teacher, me, and our youngest sister voted that well give chance to let her live in the house with one condition. Maintain cleanliness at home, for my father, is very strict about it. He doesn't like a mess.

We named her hugsy. As she grew, we have discovered a lot that we never knew. Kittens are adorable and playful. She's part of the family. There were lots of roadies in the house before and my father was very happy when he didn't see anyone of it running back and forth. Hugsy catches even cockroaches. The other time snakes and spiders.

The time came when we can't see Hugsy staying in the house. She prefers dating. She will return home if she's hungry.

The most exciting part of Hugsy life was when she got her 5 little kittens. It was funny when Pop knew. The four were given away to neighbors and the only left was the black ^ white kitten. His name is Sylvester in the picture. Hugsy died. Someone we didn't know had beaten her. Almost after a few months she died.

We can be a cat lover. I was never one before. As what I have said if you will love the cat they will love you back. If you hate them they will hate you forever.

Why some people are allergic to cats?

This is the reality, we can't please everybody. Cat's too. Most of them are being ignored on streets. Some would torture them, why? Ignorance or there are maybe some people that are just cruel and selfish. Sometimes, we have to think of other living things just like thinking about yourself, we have to take care of them just like we take care of ourselves. Maybe this is the reason created them first so we can be with them.

      maybe they did not grow together.. they're playful when they're puppies and kittens, when they becomes adult, they are irritated. They should be buddies at the start.
