The cat is zenning out

The cat is zenning out

Since I’ve been living at my cat’s place, I’ve learned a few interesting things about cats in general and my cat in particular. Such as the following.

The cat wants attention. She acts like she doesn’t, but she does. She’s quieter, calmer and better-behaved when I cuddle her anytime I chance to walk by and she happens to be awake.

The cat gets depressed when I’m depressed. She also gets calmer when I’m calm. Either my cat is psychic, or depression is infectious. The only difference is that when I’m depressed, I’m paralysed; but when the cat is depressed, she’s wild.

The cat likes routines. I like routines too, so we’re good. The one thing the cat doesn’t get routine-wise is the concept of every other day. I give her wet food every other day, but she demands it daily at the usual time.

When you’re in doubt what to blog about, blog about the cat. That’s self-explanatory.

    1. She is. That’s what cats do exceptionally well.

  2. “Since I’ve been living at my cat’s place”

    Best opening line, ever.

    But why not just give her half the wet food every day? You know, to avoid unsavory bleeding?

    That’s good.

    1. Thank you for stopping by and leaving such a great comment! Actually, you’re idea is genius and I am already applying it – I just simplified for the purpose of this post. In fact I feed the cat one half of the wet food on day one, the other half on day two, and just dry food on day three. Then I restart. Sometimes I think I’m too mean with meat, but I feed myself meat even less frequently, so hopefully the cat is alright. She looks it.

      1. Um…felines are carnivores, period. (Grass consumed in order to ralph something up doesn’t count.)

        Cat’s bodies are set up chemically to digest meat and they have trouble with anything else. The big wave of feline diabetes in the last couple decades has a lot to do with people trying to adapt their cats to people diets.

        If you want a happy, healthy kitty, shop in the meat department more and the pet food aisle less. I’m serious. Have you ever read some of the filler ingredients in cat food?

        Remember, you’re sharing your home with a wild animal. She may have learned to use a litter box but her insides haven’t evolved much in the last hundred thousand years.

  3. I do think they can sense our moods, in some magical way that’s beyond me. I’ve seen proof of it.

    I wiped down McDuff with a wet cloth yesterday, because it’s so damned hot in here. Don’t think he realised what I was doing, while I was doing it. Afterwards, when he saw he was wet, he entered a state of shock 🙂

    1. Yes, I know cats to be mood-sensitive, but I don’t know how they do it either. At least now I know to try to stay composed, if only for the benefit of not unnerving the cat 😉 If a wet cloth is what helps McDuff, then I’m sure he’ll eventually get it. Well, I hope.

  5. My cat sounds a lot like yours. Right now my cat is lying on her blanket with her paw on head snoozing.

    1. Awe ❤ Cats are funny creatures and they share some characteristics, what I like about them most is that each cat is a unique personality. Thank you for stopping by and say hello to your cat!
