We’re all about conscious living here at The Conscious Cat, and green living is a big part of living a conscious life. Earth Day is a great day to remember that green living isn’t just good for us and the planet, it’s also good for our cats. For some tips on how you can celebrate Earth Day (and beyond,) read Going Green With Your Cat.
If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: we started the week with two celebrations, Easter on Sunday, and Ruby’s 6th adoption anniversary on Monday. On Tuesday, we reviewed the Sleepypod Air and Atom carriers, on Wednesday, I told you all about my visit to the Orlando Cat Cafe, on Thursday, we featured food puzzles that can be used with wet food, and on Friday, we reviewed Sorry, Honey, but the Critters Come First.
The kitten in today’s video does not want you messing with her food – enjoy!
Have a great weekend!
About the author
Ingrid King is an award-winning author, former veterinary hospital manager, and veterinary journalist who is passionate about cats.
I adopted a cat about 3 years ago. She was raised in a cage for the first 6 months of her life, that’s when I got her. I have had nothing but affectionate, docile cats. Yes, the last two were perfect!! Laura, my adopted cat is not affectionate but does “talk” to me and follows me everywhere I go. She will sleep on the bed with me, sit in my lap etc. The problem is if she is on the counter and I walk by or go to give her a quick pet she bites me viciously!! Lots of anti-biotic cream and bandages. She has done this about 10 times since I got her. I am just broken hearted. I miss my loving cats so much. I have always had more than one cat at a time. Would getting another cat help? I wouldn’t let her be adopted out because I wouldn’t want anyone else to get as hurt,physically, as I have. I miss having a loving, calm cat. Please help.
If you haven’t already done so, take your cat to the vet, Sharon. While I suspect that her biting is behavior related, it’s always best to rule out any medical issues. Based on your description, this is either a territorial issue or it’s play aggression. I would consider working with a feline behaviorist to get to the root of this issue.
Thank you! I will take her to my vet and then, if nothing is wrong, I will contact the behavioralist. I really do love her!
That is one hungry ‘lil one! That paw is effective at holding down the food & keeping away potential food thiefs! The growls mean business! Mew Mew!
Adorable and love your graphic! Happy Earth Day!
That is one feisty baby
