The Truth About the Animals

Fluffy the Cat...not as innocent as she looks!

Fluffy the Cat...not as innocent as she looks!


A little earlier today, I was getting all the garbage and recycling and composting ready to take to the curb. Today is our pickup day.

One of my tasks was to scoop out all the tasty nuggets from the cat litter bin. It’s a crappy job, but somebody has to do it. As soon as I started scooping, the two cats came into the room and proceeded to make themselves comfortable and stare at me while I dug around in their feces. It made me quite uncomfortable, actually. By the looks on their faces, I could tell that they were totally enjoying watching me deal with their waste. They looked like they were enjoying it WAY too much. I don’t know if cats can laugh, but I’m pretty sure I could hear manic laughter coming from that side of the room.

You know, humans think they have control over the animals. The truth is, we’re completely wrong. These two cats…they know what’s REALLY going on. The animals have way more control than we think.

Just wait until they coordinate their big takeover of the White House!

  1. Hi. Yes, your cat may well put on a bit of weight just after spaiyng but that should settle down after a few months.You do not say whether your cats are indoor cats or do they go outdoors as well. During the winter the outdoor cats put on weight whilst they laze about in the warm house but once they start spending more time outdoors again, they lose the excess’ weight they have gained. We find that the indoor cats do not have such a great winter weight fluctuation as the cats which go outdoors as well. Personally, I’ve never found a satisfactory way of separating cats feeding to ease one cat having a special diet but if you can, good for you.Cats should always have a mix of wet and dry foods and not just one or the other. When using dry food in addition to wet food, the cat will need less of the wet food than if you just gave them wet food alone. This will help them to maintain their nutritional balance. Also, when putting out dry food, remember to ensure that the cat has a good supply of liquid as well. For dry food our cats all seem to like Iams and their coats seem to be more healthy but it is not cheap. Our cats also like Vitacat Healthy Balance(I believe this is an Aldi own brand) which is much more budget friendly and still keeps them very obviously healthy. For my current cats, these are the two dry foods I try to ensure are in the house at all times as they suit them best. However, the cats will also tolerate short spells on Go-Cat, which has a good variety of flavours to keep them interested, and Whiskas dry food but consistently turn up their noses at Tesco, Sainsbury and Asda dry foods. Over the years, and new cats, I’ve tried most brands and own labels but find that it is a trial and error exercise to find what suits the animals bestHope you find what your girls prefer and the youngest cat’s weight settles soon.(Edited to add the essential reminder to ensure that liquid is available if dry food is used in addition to wet food.)
