Cats and Their Odd Behavior:

Cats and Their Odd Behavior: 5 Creepy Cat Habits

By petMD | Pets

The more time you spend with your cat, the more you'll probably start to notice-she's got some weird habits, doesn't she?

We decided to look at 5 of the most common odd cat behaviors and get to the root of why they do them.


From time to time you may catch your cat doing something a little strange: kneading. This occurs when your kitten rhythmically alternates her paws, pushing in and out, usually against something soft.

While no one is 100% sure why cats take on this behavior, there are a few theories. For starters, baby kittens will knead instinctively when they're young to help stimulate their mom's milk production. In this way, some people think cats continue kneading as they get older because the action reminds them of the rewards of nursing.

Other theories for why cats do this include that it's their way of showing affection, it helps them limber up after a nap or prepare a soft, comfy spot to lay down in, or that it's an easy way to scent-mark their territory.

For female cats, many also believe that kneading is a way of displaying to male cats that they are ready and able to mate.

 Chewing on Plants

Dangling leaves aside (which, let's be honest, are just fun for your cat to chomp at), some cats chew plants because they find comfort in the act, or as a way to get your attention.

Of course too much of a good thing can be … well … bad. Cats who eat excessive grass or plants usually end up throwing up. No one's quite sure if cats do this on purpose to help bring up hairballs, or if it's just a coincidence.

Face Rubbing

Your cat's cheeks contain glands that he uses to deposit his own unique scent. By rubbing his furry little cheeks on everything he sees, your cat is actually being quite territorial, marking off what he considers to be "his" in your home.Bringing Gifts

Cats are natural hunters, which we already know, and so it only makes sense that if you have an outdoor cat she will, from time-to-time, be stalking some prey. And you know how you like to bring your furry best friend home a treat every now and then to let her know how much you love her? Well some experts believe that dead mouse on your doorstep could be her way of telling you just how much she cares about you.


Have this ever happened to you: You approach your kitten in the hallway to say hello, and she immediately throws herself on the ground, rolls onto her back and exposes her tummy to you?

If it's a familiar scenario, be happy. Cats who roll over and expose their stomachs are actually relaxed and comfortable, calm and content. When she does this, your cat is showing you that she loves and trusts you-and probably wouldn't mind some scratches at the moment, either.

10 Tips for New Cat Owners

Cats make great companions. Not only do they look good, they also keep mice away and have built-in motors. That’s pretty cool.
But there’s more to owning a cat than having a cute, soft, purring companion. Before you get one, there are a few things you should think about, and a few things that are just plain good to know.
PetMD shares 10 tips for cat owners:
1. Cats are indeed independent by nature, but they’re not quite able to take care of themselves. Before you adopt, make sure that your lifestyle can make room for a feline. How busy you are and the amount of time you spend at home will dictate the kind of cat you should get — very busy people may find it difficult to find the time for a cat that needs a lot of grooming and attention, especially the highly intelligent and active cats. But, there are cats that are ideal for the working lifestyle. Do your research.
2. What if your circumstances change after the adoption? Or if you work long hours and still want a friendly face to greet you at the door at the end of the day? Adopting a buddy for the cat to play with can be an excellent solution.
3. Do you have any allergies? If you do suffer from severe allergic reactions, consider testing yourself for feline allergies before bringing a cat home. Then again, some people with allergies might adapt to their own pet but still be allergic to other cats. A safe bet is to choose a cat with low allergens. Consult your vet, books, or animal shelter employees for suggestions.
4. Before you bring your cat home, take it for a checkup and immunizations. Also, schedule it in to be neutered as soon as age permits. This can mean the difference between a healthy and happy cat, and a miserable cat trying to claw its way through the windows or spraying your furniture.
5. Get a good litter box and quality litter. Covered boxes can allow you and your cat more privacy, and clumping litter is easier to maintain. Keep the box clean, for the comfort of your cat and your nose. Also, make sure you buy well-balanced, age-appropriate food for your cat. Ask your vet, the representatives at your local pet store,
6. Cats love to play. Toy mice, string, feathers, and even empty boxes make for great amusement. Playthings needn’t be expensive (they can even be homemade), just make sure there’s enough to keep your cat happy, active, and mentally occupied.
7. If you don’t want your sofa shredded, or your new Louis Vuitton bag ruined, invest in a scratching post.
8. Catnip, and those little freeze-dried chicken nuggets are excellent tools for cat bribery and training.
9. Get pet insurance. We hope you won’t need it, but like they always say, “It’s better to be safe than sorry.”
10. If it’s a kitten you’re bringing home, make sure you start a grooming routine early. Bathing, brushing and trimming claws will be an event to look forward to, rather than something to dread.
And there you have it. These are just a few of the things to keep in mind when you get yourself a new companion. Another important consideration: Cats often live for around 20 years, so you and your furry feline friend will be together for a long time.

Should we castration / spaying cats cation

Question ....
"I do not want castration / cation a cat because:
It is unfair if we mandulkan cats.
Cruel / ruthless if we mandulkan cats.

We've forfeited the right to reproduce
Cats will not be happy if you can not do sex.
Sin if we do it

I have my own Answer 
The above statement was one of several reasons / grounds on which of us do not want to spay a cat. There are hundreds of thousands or even millions of abandoned kittens are dumped on the market, restaurants, and other residential areas.
They are exposed to diseases such as ringworm, scabies, FLV and so forth. They meows at people passing by, asking for food. They are fighting among themselves when there are people throw leftovers in the soil.
We can see some big cats there are in a state of despair. One eye and nearly blind cuts, wounds on the body for fight or kicked by a man, leg-hencot terhencot as trampling, mouth slaver for gum disease and various other conditions.

These cats are in a state of misery, and the new kittens are born at this time will also suffer the same fate.
Say we have one female cat. He was able to
experience body heat every 2 weeks, and at this time he will seek a partner even though locked up in the house. If not sterilized, female cat can give birth to 3-5 times a year, and will give birth to 4-5 kittens each time.
We will have at least 24 new cats in the house during the 2 years.

Male cats have, will and must shine urine to demarcate the area, what if he entered the area at the neighboring car tires, flower pots and neighbors buy new shoes?
Finally, whether our angry neighbors, or we ourselves are not able to keep the cats will be brought to the market (which already have hundreds of abandoned cats) and removed in situ, so that the load is transferred to a shoulder problem dealers and customers there. Or, remove it also in other housing areas. These are the same as you throw your problem to another door!
This problem does not end that way. Cats that we throw at the market / food court / other residential areas that will remain to breed as they multiply in our house. And this problem goes back to the title
The difference is, now that we have listed us as a contributor to the problem.
Now ask yourself is, who is wrong / unfair / cruel / sin here?
