Cats are really awesome.

Cats and large kittens are good at helping humans keep their giant heads warm and toasty.

Brilliant thread >thumbsup< >thumbsup< >thumbsup<

If a cat rolls on its back, it's saying a friendly hello and inviting you to stroke its head and cheeks.

It is properly called a "social roll" and is used by cats to tell each other that they're not a threat.

If you mistake this behaviour for the cat inviting you to tickle its tummy, you might get gently bitten or scratched, to rebuke you for your dreadful manners.

Look carefully at the avatar, note what's barely visible in the gap in the rings.  I've highlighted it for you.

I use William, my large Birman Boy, as a heatpadvwhen my pain levels are high.  He's very good about it and doesn't need to be pre warmed.

The taste buds of a cat can't detect sugar, so you get so eat your cake human.

Like dogs, they can also get sick or die from eating chocolate.

Giving them a strip of raw meat everyday to chew on will keep their gums and teeth in good condition.
Suitable meats include poultry, rabbit, or beef that has been deboned.

It depends on the cat.  My Birmans love having their tummies rubbed and tickled.  Harriet goes straight for the arteries in my wrist if I am too familiar with her.

Isn't it true that the most looked-at videos on uTube are of cats.
