I was sad last week. My lovely son Nairo, 5th son of my dear Lotto, had urinary problems. He was entering in the litter very often, and he was meowing while urinating. I took him to the vet and it turned out he had urinary crystals.

Last Sunday, I was working at the computer at my desk. My love lotto climbed upon my lap and fell asleep, as usual. Our two sons Leo (tuxedo) and Nairo (Leo) were lying on my bed. Then I heard something behind me. I turned and saw a beautiful scene: Leo was licking his little brother Nairo lovingly.

Tombili (means “fat” or “fatty” in Turkish, in cute sense) was a street cat living in Kadikoy, a district of Istanbul at the Anatolian side. He became a social media phenomenon after after being photographed posing on a sidewalk. His iconic photo appeared on the viral site 9GAG.

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.

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.

Cats often eat grass in the nature, my cats also eat a lot and it seems they really like it. It is not clear why cats eat grass. A few theories exist: one of them says that that habit has some evolutionary advantages: cats get extra niacin, a B vitamin abundantly available in most fresh young grain grasses. Some claim cats eat it to make themselves vomit. Some people believe cats eat grass to help pass fur balls along while others say they just need the fiber for other nutritional purposes. And some say cats eat it just because they like its taste or simply they like to “try” things.

A friend of mine, he is also a good cat lover, has presented me a laser pointer. Before I use it, I wondered if it is really a good toy for the cats/kittens. I searched the web and and I think I found some answer to my question:
Are laser pointers good toys for cats?
The overall answer is: sometimes, under some circumstances. And you have to use it very carefully and responsibly.
