Hello There Furiends,
Lots of goings on at our house last night. About 9:00 p.m. The Female Human learned about a weather alert coming our way, high winds (75mph) thunder and lightning storm.
The Tribe is NOT fond of weather like this and since we have so many huge windows in our house we have to find a safe place to hide…..with The Female Human who is more of a scardy cat than we are.
It was a loooong night and each feline had their own way of coping. The Female Human is a bit sleep deprived today but all was well at our house but there was much chaos in other areas. The wind did a lot of damage, trees were toppled and lightning struck houses and trees. We checked in on our local feline furiends and everyone was safe and sound inside.
Stay safe my furiends and I hope you enjoy this week’s web wanderings.
Britain has a new Prime Minister but he has yet to pass his hardest test…approval from Larry, the Chief Mouser.
Larry probably shed few tears when Theresa May left as, although she said she was “very happy to see Larry” she did say she was more of a dog person. There was some controversy as to how David Cameron got along with Larry but Cameron waved a photo of himself with Larry curled up in his lap to prove they were pals,
How will Larry and the new P.M., Boris Johnson get on? Only time will tell.
Oh my whiskers, why must you humans complicate everything? Now a bunch of scientists have gotten together and studied the correct way to pet cats. First, not all us felines are the same. Second, our humans get to know us and what we like and don’t like. It’s not rocket science people, no matter how hard you try to make it more complicated than it is.
Here is some of what the study discovered. “Although a lot of cats do like being stroked, and in certain contexts will choose us over food, human interaction is something they have to learn to enjoy during their comparatively short sensitive period– between two and seven weeks old.
When it comes to human-cat interactions, the characteristics of humans are also important. Our personalities and gender, the regions of the cat’s body we touch and how we generally handle cats, may all play an important role in how the cat responds to our affections.”
If you particularly uneducated about felines, the article even includes signs of cat enjoyment and cat dislike or tension.
