TODAY'S CAT FACT
GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT OF KITTENS

A healthy kitten will have a steady weight gain daily. They usually opens their eyes 7-10 days after birth and soon after their ears open and their first teeth begin to appear.

About 3 weeks of age, kittens begin to walk and explore the environment. By about 5 weeks of age, kittens have most of their temporary teeth and begin to eat solid foods. By 6 weeks old, kittens have fully developed their brain and nervous system.

Kittens develop important physical skills by playing with one another and they learn to get along this way. By watching and imitating their mother, kittens improve many instinctive skills, especially hunting. Most cats reach their adult body size by about 1 year old.

TODAY'S CAT FACT
HOW CATS COMMUNICATE TO EACH OTHER

Cats communicate to each other by means of odor. Cats have scent glands that are on their forehead, around their mouth, and near the base of their tail. The cat will rub these glands against people and objects. This marks them with their scent. Only cats and a few other animals can smell the odor.

how are you this afternoon?
we're all okay despite mommy and janet having sinus infections, nat's almost over his cold which continues to hang on and she and nat are about to head outside to shovel/clean up some as they were plowed out and tied the record snowfall for 6" which they got back on thanksgiving. she's doing all the blogs today as she knows she'll have to go out tomorrow morning and do more cleaning up if we get more snow which just might happen or might not! her meds are working at times and other times aren't so it's a toss up as she's already filled the waste baskets once in her bedroom and it's already half filled up as of right now. she's back to work tomorrow with it as she's worked with it before for 3 months. sandy,ab,haley,angels

TODAY'S CAT FACT
A CAT'S TAIL

A cat's tail is an extension of his backbone. Cats use their tails to keep their balance. When a cat is falling, he whips out his tail and twists his body to land on his feet.

Cats also use their tail to communicate. For example, a happy cat will walk with her tail held high.

Cats can live without tails. Manx cats are born without tails. Many of them have a short stub but they are mostly known for being entirely tailless.

TODAY'S CAT FACT
CATS USE THEIR WHISKERS WHEN CATCHING PREY

Your cat not only uses his whiskers to find his way around but he also uses them when catching prey. Cats cannot see well and they need to sense that their prey is in the proper position for the fatal bite. For this purpose, it is crucial for them to use the whiskers on the back of their forelegs and those on their chin and on the sides of their nose.

WHISKERS INDICATE YOUR CAT'S MOOD

The position of your cat's whiskers can indicate their mood.

If the whiskers are relaxed and sticking out sideways your cat is calm. If they are pushed forward, he is excited and alert. If the whiskers are flattened against the cheeks, he is angry or scared.

*You will also have to check their other body language, such as the position of their ears and tail, to confirm what the whiskers are telling you.

TODAY'S CAT FACT
WHY DO CATS HAVE WHISKERS?

The whiskers on your cat are actually touch receptors.
The tips of their whiskers are so sensitive, they can
detect the slightest directional change in a breeze.

Cats feel their way around even in the dark. Your cat will be able to move smoothly into a dark room and not bump into anything.

Whiskers also help cats figure out where they will fit. The whiskers on your cat's nose are about as long as his body is wide. This helps them to figure out how wide an opening is and whether or not they will be able to fit through it.

TODAY'S CAT FACT
CATS WHISKERS

Your cat's whiskers, also known as vibrissae or tactile hairs, are rooted more deeply into the body than the shorter top-fur coat.

In addition to the 8-12 whiskers on either side of his nose, he also has shorter whiskers above his eyes, on his chin, and even on the backs on his lower legs.

Cat whiskers shed and grow back naturally. Never trim or cut your cat's whiskers. Without these tactile hairs, cats become very disoriented and frightened.

The last few days I covered information on your cat's teeth and how to care for them. However, we also need to watch for signs that may show a problem in your cat's mouth. These are the following signs to look for: dark red line along the gums, red and swollen gums, ulcers on gums or tongue, loose teeth, pus, difficulty chewing food, excessive drooling, or excessive pawing at the mouth area.

If your cat shows any of these signs, it may indicate problems in their mouth.

We finally get to meow with you...
after missing the entire week due to dad's fall on the ice. He's doing fine & isn't complaining about any pain so we hope he'll stay on his feet the rest of the winter! Mom brought Joseph, JJ & Callie back inside last night when she saw all of them gathered at the front door peeking in the lower window. They went right into the family room & fell asleep so I guess they were a little stressed about their first day out...especially with the strange kitty here too...MOL! They're back outside again right now enjoying the nearly 30 degree weather with sunshine & JJ is prowling the property to 'reclaim' his territory. No sign of the other boy kitty today so he must have gone to visit the neighbor's barn for a while but will probably be back since he really likes all of our humans. Dad wants to call him Bartholomew but mom isn't sure that fits him so will have to wait & see what sticks.
All of us inside girls are doing great but are getting anxious about having our 'playroom' (family room) back again. Mom said it's staying closed off until we're sure the weather won't flip back to super cold again so guess we'll have to be happy with the other 7/8ths of the house...MOL!

We're supposed to have temps near 40 tomorrow! Woohoo...it's a heat wave...MOL! Hoping they'll stay a little warmer so the icy/snow covered roads will clear & so the kids won't miss any more days of school. They already have to make up 4 & they only have 1 built-in make up day left so hopefully they won't need to use it, or else they'll have to go longer at the end of the school term.

Well got to run for now but hope to be more meowy with all of you next week. Have a pawtastic weekend dear furiends!

TODAY'S CAT FACT
BRUSHING YOUR CAT'S TEETH

Here are some steps to follow when brushing your cat's teeth.

*Get your cat used to the idea of getting their teeth brushed. Gently massage their gums with your fingers or touch them with a cotton swab.

*After a few sessions of massaging the gums, get them used to the taste of the toothpaste. Put a small amount of cat-formulated toothpaste on their lips.

*Next, introduce a toothbrush that is made for cats. The ones that you wear over your finger give your cat's gums a nice massage.

*Apply toothpaste, that is made for cats, to their gums.

It is best to get your cat's teeth examined by a vet before you start brushing them. Many cats have mild gingivitis and it can hurt their gums if you brush them too hard.

Note: The best time to get your cat started with brushing their teeth is when they are a kitten so they will be used to it as they grow older.

TODAY'S CAT FACT
KEEPING YOUR CAT'S TEETH HEALTHY

If your cat has bad breath, this usually indicates oral problems. When he has bad breath and is drooling, the cause is often related to gum disease and/or tooth decay.

*Provide your cat with a good diet to maintain his teeth for good health. Your veterinarian may recommend a diet that's good for your cat.

*Get your cat a yearly dental checkup.

*Brush your cat's teeth with a toothbrush and toothpaste made specially for cats.

*Massage your cat's gums: Tooth decay usually starts with inflamed or irritated gums. This will accelerate healing and also strengthen the gums so that your cat will less likely suffer from problems in the future. Gums should be pink, not red or irritated.

CATS TEETH

Cats grow two sets of teeth in their lifetime. The first set, which consists of 26 teeth, are known as their milk teeth. The teeth start to appear when the cat is about four weeks old and they will have their whole set by the time they reach the age of six weeks old.

By the time the cat is about six months old, the milk teeth will have fallen out and been replaced by 30 permanent teeth.

Cats use their teeth for grasping, cutting and shredding food. Their teeth are also useful for self-defense.

TODAY'S CAT FACT
GROOMING

Cats instinctively clean themselves. They do this by licking their fur with their tongue and they also rub and scratch their fur with their paws. Each day cats lick a paw and wash their face and head with the wet paw. But cats do not always groom themselves well.

As an owner, we need to comb or brush a cat's fur everyday to remove loose hairs. This is essential for long-haired cats to prevent the coat from tangling and matting.

Daily brushing or combing reduces the amount of loose hair that cats swallow when cleaning themselves. Swallowed hair can wad up in their stomach forming a hairball.

Kittens should also be brushed or combed to make it easier to care for them as they get older.

CLEANING THE EARS

To clean your cats ears, you will need a liquid cleaner. First, ask your vet to recommend one. Place a small amount of the cleaner on a clean cotton ball or piece of gauze. Fold the ear back and wipe away any debris or earwax that is in the inside of the outer ear. Lift away the dirt, do not rub it into the ear.

*Note-DO NOT clean the ear canal. Probing inside the ear can
cause trauma or infection. Leave the ear canal cleaning to your veterinarian.

good morning!
18 is sure a big improvement over yesterday's -4 for sure and we think you might agree with that one as we made it up to 26 for the afternoon high. it was so nice that janet decided at the last minute to stop doing her online stuff and just got out and walked the big block. that was after she and nat did the bank-ing and grocery shopping. got 1-3" fluffy snow on the way for the morning commute which isn't making janet and all the others to happy, so she's hoping it holds off till after she's gotten to work and then all comes down at that time and stopped before she's gotten out of work and the roads are bare enough and not to sloppy, but that's wishful thinking! see ya for janet's birthday celebrations on here or fb tomorrow! sandy,ab,haley,angels

Hey Barney!
I bet! That would definitely be a bonus of being retired! Not having to drive to work in the snow! Mom can't wait! We got about 2" today. Fortunately the roads weren't bad. Mom had to clear the snow off her car to get home from work. Hawk's first period really stunk! Better come out in the second & score! Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening.

Dearest K. Barney & Fursibs
How sweet of you all to come by and congratulate me on my COTD honor yesterday, dear ones. It sure was a big surprise to me; happily so. I think that about this time what with the freezing weather everywhere we should build some more ice sculptures, Barney. That was so much fun during your reign.

Hugs & Love,
Q. Lady Dolly

it's our guess that we should
stop complaining as it'll warm up eventually and well we know it's going to be back to the 30s by sunday and that's not to all far away and the coldest 2 days of this weather are tomorrow and thursday, then warming to the mid to upper 20s and as long as it's sunny we'll take it! chances of snow flurries today and friday as well, but no big storms in sight for now through wed-nesday next week so looking good! we know we can't complain as it'll get even colder than this now through march or some of april as well as we did see colder than this one morning mid november with 1-day cold snaps back that early or early as oct-ober as we hit the lower to mid 20s for one day back then as well. sandy,ab,haley,angels

Dear K. Barney,
Negative -10 and -25??!!! THAT IS OUTRAGEOUS! Buddy, I am praying for you all. You want to be just sick? Today we hit 72* and by Wednesday we'll be back up to 78*. That's our crazy weather here. It doesn't know what season it is! Please you all try to stay by the fire or the radiator and stay warm! Let me know if it gets any worse; I am really praying for you.

I enclosed a vote for you and wishes for you and your family to have a very blessed evening.

Purrs & gentle headbumps,
Angel Malachi

Hi K. Barney and family,
How are you doing today? It is a very cold one here and we are all enjoying the warmth in the patio room. The sun coming through the windows and the Eden Pure Heater has it toasty warm in here. Hehehe.!!! Mom spent the day taking down Christmas decorations in the house. What a mess, I will be glad when everything is back to normal. I love Christmas but it is time to put everything away until next Christmas. Gives us something to look forward to. Tomorrow she will put away the tree. Now, that I wouldn't mind having around all year long. I like to see all of the pretty ornaments and especially laying under the tree. Oh well, all good things must come to an end. Have a great evening and visit when you can. Purrs and nuzzles, Greycee Mist...

TODAY'S CAT FACT
The Cat's Diet

Cats are carnivores and therefore need to eat a lot of meat for protein and for fat.

A cat's system is not designed for carbs, which they cannot process well, and therefore cats need to avoid eating them. Carbs can lead to obesity which can lead to diabetes.

Cats should also avoid eating dog food which contains a high amount of carbohydrates. Also, dog food does not contain the nutrition that is needed for cats.

Hi K Barney
What’s mew with you? I am missing my Mommy. She returned to work today, after being off for 12 straight days. I liked her being home with us. Now I am moping around with a sad face. I might have a nasty hairball. I ate my Laxatone treats so hopefully I will feel better soon.

Did Santa Claws come to see you? He came here & brought us lots of neat toys. We were not impressed with most of them, but I do like my feathery owl wand toy and my tiger spring toy. Mommy still needs to download our photos from Christmas. Maybe tomorrow.

Have a meowy Monday!
Purrs,
K Casper Todd

Hi Barney! Barney?
I think? Are you there? You seem to be joining the growing ranks of The Invisible on CC. Yeeks! You don't think CC is slowing erasing us, do you? Photos are disappearing everywhere. Links too. *groan*

We got a ton of snow last night (not totally unexpected, but we seldom believe the forecast, so when it actually did snow, we were slightly amazed!). Gonna get a lot more, so 'they' say. And mom NEEDS to go shopping tomorrow. *out of TP* Not the sort of thing you like to run out of. We got 3 big bags of litter a few days ago, so we're good. I doubt mom wants to hang it over the litter box though, so she's gonna have to sled to the store tomorrow. She hopes...
