Here are nine things to keep in mind if you own a cat.  Readers Disgest has published these facts about your feline friends.

  1. Nose to nose greetings between cats are unusual but cats who know each other well but have been apart for a while feel safe enough to do this to confirm visual recognition and gain information about how the other cat is, where he has been and what he has been doing.
  2. Purring usually indicates that your cat is content but a deep purr could indicate illness.
  3. Cats retain their kitten vocal signals to communicate with humans but they usually use an adult  repertoire of sounds to communicate with other cats.
  4. Like dogs, cats can also get sick and die from eating chocolate.
  5. Cats like to nap rather than sleep. When in a deep sleep, they do tend to dream like we do.
  6. Cats blink and narrow their eyes when they make eye contact. To make friends with an unfamiliar cat, blink and look away when you catch his eyes.
  7. Cats cannot understand punishment as humans do. They must be praised and rewarded for good behavior.
  8. Giving your cat a strip of raw meat to chew on everyday will keep his teeth and gums in good condition. Make sure that the meat is deboned.
  9. Cats can tolerate heat very well but never leave them in the car with the windows rolled up on a hot day!
