What cat doesn’t love to play with toilet paper? Toilet paper shredding and unrolling is a common activity for most cats. They use it as a substitute for a scratching post and for entertainment. To prevent this from happening, we would recommend keeping your bathroom doors closed.

Do you often see paws under your doors when you’re separated from your cat? Despite having a reputation for not caring, cats tend to miss their owners when they leave the room. Seeing paws under your door indicates your cat wants to come in and join you. For this week’s Cat of the Week, we want to see paws under doors! Post a photo in the comments below, along with your cat’s name to go into...

Who doesn’t love to see their cat preparing to pounce with a little tail wiggle? They do this to get balance and leverage, and to hone in on their target. For this week’s Cat of the Week, we want to see your cat preparing to pounce! Post a photo in the comments below, along with your cat’s name to go into the running.
Were you lucky enough to receive a box of chocolates this Valentine’s Day? Make sure you keep your chocolate box up high and out of reach from your cat and other pets, as chocolate is harmful to most animals.
Cats never fail to surprise us with their ability to fit into tight spaces around the house. For this week’s Cat of the Week, we want to see your cat resting in an unexpected place. Post a photo in the comments below, along with your cat’s name to go into the running.
Do you often catch your cat sprinting around the house for no good reason? They are in fact exercising! Most indoor cats will experience a bit of pent up energy, so bounding across furniture is a sign of a healthy mind.
Does your cat tend to collect random objects from around the home? Well, you’re not alone. Cats tend to hoard certain objects they deem useful for their survival. You will often see this occur next to your cat’s food or water bowl.

For this week’s Cat of the Week, we want to see your cat collecting something for his stash spot. Post a photo in the comments below, along with your cat’s name...

Does your cat want to be near you? They might be at arm’s length, but always seemingly in the same room.

It’s a sign of the special bond between you and them, and they’re curious about where you go and the things that you do. Even if they aren’t being overly affectionate, it shows they’re very fond of you.
Does your cat do the loaf?

This rather cute position, with all four legs tucked underneath their body is actually a sign of immense trust. It’s a dangerous way to rest if they aren’t feeling secure, because their claws aren’t easily accessible. So if you notice a little ‘cat loaf’ around your home, take it as a sign they are relaxed and happy in their environment.

For this week’s Cat of the...

Cats show affection in many ways.

One example of this is through their eyes; if they blink slowly at you (perhaps purring), it shows they are relaxed. If they didn’t trust you they would lock their eyes on you to watch every move, which is why guests will often think your cat is staring at them as they look-on with a focused, unblinking gaze.

What’s nice is that you can return the...

Senior cats do slow down as they get older, but many will still have kitten-like moments. They still enjoy activities and playtime because it’s part of their curious nature. You might need to keep their games a little bit more gentle and go at your cat’s pace. Avoiding high jumps and fast turns as these could lead to stress and frustration.

This Cat of the Week, we want to see your old...

Have you noticed your cat hasn’t been doing an awful lot this summer?

Whilst their body temperatures are naturally higher than humans’, the heat can still make cats very lethargic as they try and cool down. Make sure they have plenty of shady spots to chill out in – and also that they have plenty of fresh drinking water available.

For this week’s Cat of the Week, we want to see your cats...

Are you suspicious that your cat has selective hearing? They can sleep through all your calls but will somehow hear it when you go to the food cupboard?

Well they do! Cats may seem sound asleep but in the wild, they need to be able to react quickly to a threat or potential meal. That’s why sometimes only cues that their dinner is about to be served will get through.

For this week’s Cat of...

It’s cats’ independent natures that we admire, but that doesn't mean they can care for themselves!

If you're thinking about getting a cat and haven't had one before, they can be very rewarding and provide great companionship. However, it's worthwhile researching which breed matches your lifestyle.

You can use our cat breed page to see which might be the most appropriate for your lifestyle:...

Even the most mature cats can behave like kittens every now and then. It’s a mad few minutes that would be a waste of energy in the wild (and would also give away their location to predators and prey) but in the home, food is readily available and there are no predators… so why not!

They don’t need to fend for themselves, so they revert back to kitten-hood to practice their instincts by...
