There are other cats that are a little possessive, aggressive, they scratch if they don’t get their way! But my heart can’t stay away from them. I just love the little furry felines.

Abraham Lincoln loved cats

ABRAHAM LINCOLN and his LOVE for CATS!

United States President, Abraham Lincoln, loved all animals, especially cats. He loved cats so much that his wife once said that cats were her husband’s hobby.

He fed his kitties at the table. One time he used a gold fork to do that, which was too much for Mrs. Lincoln. His response?

“If a gold fork was good enough for former President Buchanan, it’s good enough for Tabby.”

AMAZING FUN CAT FACTS:

20 Surprising Fun Cat Facts - Abraham Lincoln Loved Cats! 4

    1. Cats have over 20 muscles that control their ears.

    2. A group of cats is  called clowder.

    3. Cats have more data storage than an iPad.

    4. Abraham Lincoln had four cats in the White House.

    5. Adult cats only meow to communicate with humans.

    6. Some cats are ambidextrous. Although 40 to 50% of female cats are typically right-pawed, while male cats are typically left-pawed: Psychologists Deborah Wells and Sarah Millsopp of Queen’s University Belfast tested 42 house cats — 21 males and 21 females — to determine whether they favored their right or left paws when performing tasks of varying difficulty. Their report on the results has been accepted for publication in the journal Animal Behavior of Science Direct (play with your kitties and let me know if this is true. I did it and couldn’t prove it, 🤩 but then again, I’m not a Psychologist).

    7. SO SORRY dog lovers: A cat’s cerebral cortex (the part of the brain in charge of cognitive information processing) has 300 million neurons, compared with a dog’s 160 million. (BTW,  (I love dogs too 🐶).

    8. Cats are very picky creatures about their “bathroom.” If you have more than one feline, you should have one litter box for each one of them.

    9. They are the only mammals that cannot taste sweetness (no cake for my kitty-cats on my birthday).

    10. A cat can jump six times his length in a single bound.

    11. Cats love routine. Any change in their routine makes them mad, upset. Some cats get sick, they can vomit or refuse to eat.

    12. When Cats Leave Their Poop Uncovered It’s a Sign of Aggression.

    13. Kneading is a sign of contentment and happiness. Cats knead their mothers when they are nursing to stimulate the let-down of milk.

    14. There are currently 45 Hemingway cats living at the writer’s former home in Key West, Fla.

    15. A cat’s nose is ridged with a unique pattern, just like a human fingerprint.

    16. The first cat in space was a French cat named Felicette (a.k.a. “Astrocat”) In 1963, France blasted the cat into outer space. Electrodes implanted in her brains sent neurological signals back to Earth. She survived the trip.

    17. A cat can travel at a top speed of approximately 31 mph (49 km) over a short distance.

    18. In several countries of Europe and North America black cats are a sign of bad luck, but in Britain and Australia black cats are considered lucky!

    19. Usually, a cat has about 12 whiskers on each side of its face. Have you counted them already? 😇

    20. A cat’s jaw can’t move sideways, that is why a cat can’t chew large chunks of food.

Funny Cats

The videos are absolutely hilarious!
Some felines love to give us a little hard time, don’t they?
One of their pleasures is to destroy our things, especially the things we like or need the most.

When One of our Cats Dies….

When my cat Andie died last December 13 2017. I felt that my heart was life and heart were completely broken. I couldn’t understand how my life was going to be worth living without her. She was so kind and loving to me, all the time, even when I gave her intramuscular shots and oral medications; she never run away from me, she loved me so  and losing her has been very painful….NO…extremely painful to me. It is an unimaginable pain missing her everyday. There was a special connection between Andie and me, and yes, that connection will never die.

Through out my 32 years of having cats in my life I have lost several through old age, some sudden acute disease and they all have been loved and rescued cats. They all leave a hole in my heart when they die.
Anyways, I read this beautiful post of Milly Schmidt and decided not to be ashamed of showing my own pain and my vulnerability to suffer like every one else in this world and share some of my own grieve with you by reblogging her post.
When One of our Cats Dies.... 12

When my cat died on March 20th, I stopped blogging entirely. The only reason you’ll see I posted blogs on that particular date (and after) is because I always schedule my blogs about 1-2 weeks ahead.

I would like to let you all know that I have been reading every single comment left on this blog – even if I never replied. Your comments have been little sparks of light in the darkness. Thank you too, for all the lovely, heartfelt emails and for being so understanding and sharing in my grief when I posted about losing Sven last month.

I’m not embarrassed to admit, that I, the ever optimistic happy go-lucky crazy cat lady, finally reached the end of her tether after my pet died. And we should not be ashamed of feeling sad. If we do, we help perpetuate the stigma of depression that stops people reaching out for help.

It’s okay to ask for help. It’s okay to let others know that you’re not coping well.

For me, I think the problem was, no matter how lousy I was feeling, my dog and cat would always be there for me, so to lose one of my constant companions has been absolutely devastating. I have never needed Sven more than I need him now, yet he’s lost to me forever.

I usually feel pretty happy most of the time, but when Sven died, any sparks of happiness vanished along with him. It took a few weeks before I could look at a sunrise and feel that rush of appreciation and contentment I used to feel. But even then, I knew that something was still not right.

I think I recognized I was getting to a point where I couldn’t handle the grief any longer. I needed some cats around to force me to laugh. I mean… how can you not laugh when you see a face like this??

Los Gatos Me Hacen Super Feliz!

Los gatos son mi adoración. Sí, me gustan todos los animales, pero los felinos son mis preferidos por muchas razones que con el tiempo iré compartiendo con todos ustedes.

Este es mi primer post en Español, ya que he venido blogueando por años pero sólo en Inglés, y últimamente he tenido muchas peticiones de que lo haga también en Español. Así que empezamos. Espero que les guste y que se agreguen a mi lista de seguidores en Wordpress para poder crear una sana, divertida y educativa amistad.

Bueno, pues vamos, con las fotos de los gaticos tan adorados míos 💙💜💖💚💖💛
