How to Know Whether Your Cat is in Pain


Cats are masters at masking pain. This ability to hide pain goes back to their wild origins; in the wild, a sick animal becomes prey. While acute pain may be fairly obvious to cat guardians, it may be more difficult to discern whether your cat is in pain when it comes to chronic pain from conditions such as arthritis. Sadly, even some veterinarians still overlook signs of feline pain, or are not aggressive enough in treating it. Continue reading…

Sunday Purrs of Wisdom: Mirror, Mirror on the Wall


I believe that every single person in your life is your mirror to some extent. Others reflect back aspects of our own consciousness to us, giving us an opportunity to see ourselves in a different light, and ultimately, to grow. Sometimes, that reflection may come from someone we admire. Other times, it may come from someone who aggravates us and pushes all our buttons.

And just like humans, cats can also be a mirror for us. Continue reading…

Mews and Nips: The Extraordinary Lives of Istanbul’s Cats


Kedi (Turkish for “cat,”) a film about the cats who freely roam the metropolis of Istanbul, takes a closer look at the lives of these cats and what they mean to the city’s inhabitants. Some of these cats fend for themselves, others are cared for by communities of people, and get food and shelter during the colder months. According to the film’s website, “cats have been a part of the city for thousands of years, and so, everyone who grows up in Istanbul or lives in Istanbul has a story about a cat. Stories that are memorable; sometimes scary, sometimes spiritual, but always very personal.” For more about Kedi, watch the trailer below, or visit

If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: Continue reading…

Darwin’s Raw Cat Food: Feed Your Cat the Way Nature Intended


Cats are obligate carnivores, which means they need meat in their diet to thrive. Their systems aren’t designed to digest carbohydrates. A raw diet is one of the best ways to fulfill cats’ nutritional requirements. There are numerous benefits from feeding a raw diet to your cat, including improved digestion, reduced stool odor and volume, increased energy, ability to maintain ideal weight, better dental health, and better urinary tract health. Continue reading…

How Often Should You Clean the Litter Box?


When it comes to litter boxes, cleanliness truly is next to godliness. Cats are fastidious creatures. Using a dirty litter box is, at best, uncomfortable for them, and at worst, will cause them to eliminate outside the box.

A dirty litter box, to a cat, is the same as a public restroom with unflushed toilets and toilet paper all over the floor is to us. How many times have you walked out of a restroom like that without using it, no matter how badly you needed to go? Continue reading…

Happy Father’s Day


Whether your kids are human or furry, enjoy your special day!

Father’s Day can be bittersweet for those of us whose fathers are no longer with us. My dad passed away 12 years ago, but I still get a little sad when friends talk about what they’re going to do to celebrate, or when I see Father’s Day cards pop up in stores. Continue reading…
