Domestic cats love to play, this applies particularly to kittens who enjoy chasing toys and play fighting. Play fighting between kittens is more than just amusement and can be a way for them to practice and learn abilities for hunting and fighting.
Cats and humen have been closely associated for nearly 10000 years. The Ancient Egyptians held cats in the highest regard, and there were severe penalties for injuring or killing a cat. They even venerated a Cat Goddess whom they called Bastet.
Most people refer to all felines as cats or kittens depending on the age – but this is not the proper terminology. A group of cats is called a clowder, a male cat is called a tom, a female cat is called a molly or queen while young cats are called kittens.
You might not think of your fluffy pet as a vicious predator but cats are natural hunters. When they stroll, their back paws step in almost exactly the same place as the front paws do in order to minimize noise and limit visible tracks. Cats have powerful night vision, excellent hearing and a powerful sense of smell.
We have come to associate purring with happiness when it comes to cats, but turns out merely because a cat is purring doesn’t mean the cat is happy. Cats usually make this sound when they’re content, but they also purr when they’re sick, stressed, hurt, or giving birth. So the next time your furry friend purrs they may be trying to tell you something.
There’s never a dull moment when you own a cat. Sure, they expend plenty of day snoozing and lounging around, but you never quite know when they are going to do something cute, funny, crazy or maybe only a little bit evil.
Snapchat is a great medium to capture your feline’s foibles, because its highly visual and you can also tag your pics with a witty caption. Some of these pics, compiled into a list by Bored Panda , are perfectly-timed, some clearly staged and others completely random, but they are all hilarious! This is the latest of a series of cat-snaps that we have found over its first year, if you find yourself needing more you can find them here, here, and here. Enjoy!
This summer is set to be one of the hottest – and driest – on record. With no substantial rain since May and temperatures tipping past 30 C (8 6F ), a hosepipe banning looms as the heatwave continues to stretch ahead of us in an untypically British way.
There are, as with most things in life, pros and cons to the hot weather.
Watering can salespeople enjoy a boom in trade, their equivalents in the electric blanket department insure a slump. Butterflies bask in the long hot days, unaware of the jeopardy faced by the next generation of caterpillars.
Here are some of the wins and losers of the season.
On the rails
Overcrowded rail services are rarely improved by hot weather, with both practical and personal hurdles to overcome. Heat can buckle tracks and cause lags, while your fellow-traveller’s underarm aroma could be intensified by the oven-like atmosphere of the quiet carriage.
On the other hand, business is booming at heritage railways. Chuffing along with the wind( and soot) in your hair while hoping to spot Jenny Agutter waving her red petticoat is something that can be enjoyed in soar temperatures.
For example, the Severn Valley Railway is expecting bumper numbers this weekend, and has added new dates for its Wizard Express, while Telford Steam Railway is preparing for 500 people to turn up on Sunday.
