A Cat’s View of Fall

Standard

Eyesight is getting better. Going to reblog a favorite from my friend, Colin. Enjoy, and please check out his other blogs also. Mageowl’s Blog

Cats have a different way of looking at the fall season than we humans do. Here’s a few examples of how a cat might view the changing seasons:

Summer’s over… the sun is dying… we’re all going to freeze to death! Oh! A leaf is falling, it’s a toy!

There’s not enough sun… we’re all going to freeze! We’re… we’re… is that a mouse I hear? It is! Let’s play!

Leaves falling from trees? Changing colors, drying up… Mouse time!

White powder falling from the sky? No sun? We’re all going to freeze! Where’s the blankets?

Snow! Snow? Nap time, wake me in the spring.

It’s fall! It’s getting colder! Time to run around and play until we all drop exhausted!

Summer’s over? It’s starting to get cooler… that mean blanket time! Where’s my soft blanket?

As you can see, cats have many different ideas on what the changing season means, some love it, others hate it.

How does your cat handle the changing seasons? How do you cheer them up? I’d enjoy reading your thoughts.

Thanks for reading.

Thanks, Colin, for helping me out!

Cats Are FALLing

Standard

It’s official. Seasons have changed and it is now fall. Love this time of the year with the cooler temperatures and beaufiful colors. What does this have to do with cats? They notice the change of the seasons also. My friend, Colin, has some suggestions for keeping your cat happy during the fall season. Will share his ideas as well as my own. Here’s Colin!

The most important thing to do is to keep your cat active, to the end I have the following suggestions:

1. Hide small piles of catnip behind fragile objects on high shelves, this has the added benefit of giving your cat a chance to watch you clean up the mess.

2. Buy a number of life like toy mice and hide them. Your cats will find them and leave them where you will trip over them in the middle of the night and think it is a real mouse, which will entertain your cat for hours.

3. Give your cat a bath, he will find it fascinating to watch you tend your wounds.

4. Leave a bag of dry food slightly open, your cat will find a way to get it open and help herself to a tasty snack.

5. Start playing a game with your cat with treats, try tossing the treats to your cat.

If everything else fails, give your cat a nice soft blanket to sleep on in his or her favorite window.
Thank you, Colin! Good ideas even though some may backfire on you. 🙂 During this time of year, you may see cats FALLing asleep anywhere.
