Cats and Newspapers

It happens all the time, as soon as you start reading the newspaper, your cat jumps up and sits right on top of the section that you’re reading. When I had my cat Molly, I would encourage her to move, she got angry, and gave me a swat! I guess she didn’t like the fact that I was paying attention to the newspaper and not to her. Today with everything online, I would look at my phone and both my cats would do anything to get my attention. Meow, knock things off of a table, anything to let me know that they were not pleased. There’s really no answer to this question. Maybe newspapers just feel good but I think it’s because that your cat wants your attention.

Cats also like the way paper sounds. Put a paper bag on the floor and your cat will love going inside of it and making noise. So before you go out and spend lots of money on cat toys, consider a paper bag and don’t forget to let your cat read the “kitty” section of the newspaper or you may just get swatted, unfortunately, they can’t really sit on a cell phone, or can they?

Remember, pets are family!
