During a live TV broadcast in Denizli, Turkey, a stray cat entered the studio, jumped on the table and started walking around. Finally, he laid down on the keyboard of the presenter’s laptop – a cat’s favorite place! The local TV station’s employees gave him the name of “Hüsnü”, a common Turkish male name. It has been also reported that the cute thing was adopted by Filiz Kurt, an employee of the TV station.

According to the Guinness World Records (The Guinness Book of Records until 1988), there are four official world records which belong to cats. These are “Longest domestic cat (living)”, “Loudest purr by a domestic cat”, “Longest jump by a cat”, and “Most tricks performed by a cat in one minute”.

How do cats see humans? Some say they see their human as another big cat who dominates her/him, others say they see us as servants. Some sources say yes, they see us as a big cat, but not as the dominator (who dominate them), just a big, dumb cat who even doesn’t have basic hunting skills.

Well, actually they do not. The cats definitely don’t afraid of cucumbers. Probably you’ve seen those “funny” videos on the internet. The cats in these videos are just startled by the jerks who sneak up behind them and place unfamiliar large objects there while they’re busy eating. You’d also be startled if you turned around and suddenly there was traffic barrel or palm tree right behind you that wasn’t there two seconds earlier. See the video I took below. Yo can see clearly my cats do not afraid of a cucumber. In fact, they play with it.

Cats are amazingly loving animals and to me (and to the most cat owners), their companionship is invaluable. Earning a cat’s love and trust is a great gift. There are many ways of a cat saying “I love you”, or “I am happy with you”, or “I feel really comfortable with you”. Here are ten of them.

Has your cat ever pretended to bury her/his food? Even after eating it? Like they are burying their waste? Lotto usually do that, and I heard many similar stories from the other cat owners. At first, I thought she is doing that because of she didn’t like the food; but no, she is sometimes doing it after eating some.

I like classical music, and during and after her pregnancy, I always played clasical music to my dear Lotto. According to an article published in popular science (and that article refers to a paper published in Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery), during surgery, cats prefer listening to classical music over other music types i. e. rock. I think it also helps during the pregnancy period.

On September 14, Monday, I was leaving the university (where I work) to go to home. I do a 5-minute walk through the garden to the bus on every evening. While climbing the ladders, I heard a cry (in fact a meow).
