Does your cat ever greet you by rolling onto their back? This behavior can be interpreted as a sign that your cat trusts you enough to show you their vulnerable side. It's also a good way to tell that your cat's relaxed, calm and may even want a belly scratch!

A basket of laundry fresh out of the dryer can be an irresistible napping spot! Cats love to keep cozy in the colder months and will seek out warm hiding and napping spots around the home.

Have you noticed your cat rubbing its furry little cheeks against walls and objects around the home? Cats do this to create a sense and smell of home. Scent is such a strong sense, even cats with poor vision can find their way around the home using a combination of memory and scent trails.

Have you ever wondered why your cat seems to want attention as soon as you start chatting on the phone? This is because your cat probably thinks you're talking to them. Give them a pat to say thanks for listening.

Are you lucky to have more than one cat in your household? A good way to tell if they are getting along, is by watching to see how they interact with each other. Sharing a bed, ‘bunting’ their heads together to share their scents or assisting in cleaning each other are all telltale signs of a happy relationship. For this week’s Cat of the Week, we want to see cat buddies. Post a photo in the... View more »

If you’ve ever gone to sleep with a cat at your feet but then woken up with them on your head, you could be a restless sleeper. Cats tend to gravitate towards your head because it’s warm and there’s less tossing and turning to deal with. Another reason for your cat wanting to sleep near your head, is that your cat may enjoy your scent (particularly the smell of your hair) which helps them to... View more »

Cats spend a great deal of time grooming themselves. They also tend to pay special attention to their face and paws. If they have any food or debris on them, it could interfere with their sense of smell or their ability to navigate around using their whiskers. This is why you may see your cat grooming itself after enjoying a nice meal. For this week’s Cat of the Week, we want to see cats... View more »

Cats, not surprisingly, prefer fresh water. Cool running water from the tap specifically. One theory is that they are attracted to the amount of fresh oxygen in the water. Another theory is that running water contains less pollutants than stagnant water in a bowl. If you find that your cat is reluctant to drink from its bowl, try swapping it out for another one. Cats tend to prefer ceramic or... View more »

Keyboards, newspapers, your mobile phone. These are just some of the objects that your cat has likely laid on while you were attempting to use them. Cats do this because they want to be near you, and they know that they will get your attention this way. For this week's Cat of the Week we want to see cats on objects.

If you're meeting a cat for the first time, allow them to sniff your clothes and hands. If they rub their chin or head along your leg, they are happy to mark their scent on you. Feel free to also pet them at this stage. Cats also tend to greet people they like, so if you're treated to a 'meow' say hello back.

Cats have excellent hearing and can position their ears to hone in on any sound that interests them. You can also get an idea of how your cat is feeling by looking at their ears. Upright, forward facing ears generally mean your cat's feeling relaxed. Pointed, sideways ears can mean your cat isn't feeling comfortable, and is listening for sounds of danger. For this week's Cat of the Week, we... View more »

Cats are temperamental creatures, and tend to have an arousal threshold. A great example of this is when your cat wants a belly rub, but then attacks your hand after a couple pets. Cats are stimulus-driven and too much can put them in defence mode.
