I wonder if we could even find a cat owner that supports the myth of the asocial cat? Yet, almost every day we read or hear some tired old stereotype about our feline friends. This habitual repetition that cats are asocial is the subject of internet memes, jokes and unfortunately perpetuated on many television sitcoms.
Now that we are a multi-cat household, it is important to make sure each cat has their own space and pathways around the house. Annie, Eddie and Mercy all get along but there are still times when they need their alone time. Creating routes or corridors for your cats will help them feel more at ease in the home. If your cats are spatting you might check to see if you can create a more cat-friendly home to ease the tension.

- The Amur tiger has a layer of fat on its belly and flanks to protect them from the bitter cold.
- This tigers fur is thick and long providing protection from freezing cold during the winter months.
- Their paws have extra fur that protects them like wearing snow boots from the snow and ice.
Your Cat Has Not Adapted to Survive the Harsh Winter
How often have we heard that for the best in life, we need to keep everything in balance. Work and family life balance, exercise and rest and of course eating a balanced diet. When I was in Kenya, I saw the limitations on the availability of clean water. I have not been able to turn on the water at home without thinking about how precious this resource is and how fortunate those of us are that take clean water for granted every day.
We know we need water and we also need to eat a balanced diet to maintain our health and this is easier said than done at times. We can select our food choices but our cats rely on us to choose for them and this can be daunting at times.

House cats benefit by drinking more water, and even more so if they are eating a dry kibble diet. All cats need water and even though you might hear people say their cat never drinks water, we know this is not true and all cats need water. Even wild big cats intake water when eating their prey but they also seek out watering holes. You can help out your cats by setting up a watering hole for them in your own habitat.

Pet Parents Demand All Natural Quality Ingredients for their Cats
Pets are part of the family, in fact so much so that we are seeing the term pet parent more often than pet owner. This increasing humanization of pets has paved the way for pet parents to demand their pets’ food be made of the same type and quality of ingredients that might be in a food product for humans. . This means that cat parents are asking for protein sources in their cat’s food that would match the quality of meat, poultry or fish in their own food. And just as all natural foods are demanded for themselves, all natural food is in demand for cats too.

Most of my working life has been in the product development and marketing of food for humans. And as I am sure you are aware, when you walk into a traditional grocery store you are hit with a multitude of products, everything from items with ingredient labels that look like they might have been created in a lab to the products with clean labels; meaning they are produced with natural ingredients. In fact, there are so many products in a larger format grocery store, a new product only has about 3 seconds to grab the attention of the consumer.
