Crazy cats may spice up a pet owner's life depending
upon how crazy the cat is. In other words when we speak of crazy
cats are we talking insane or just wacky?
PicturesOfCats.biz - Yeah, Baby!
In every aspect of life, whether it be in the human world or in
the animal kingdom, there is always a misfit who tries to get our
attention or sometimes makes us wonder how diverse the world is.
Some would say that these things happen as a result of behavioral
patterns, which sometimes causes illicit curiosity among observant
Call Me Crazy, One More Time ...
Pet owners often encounter misfit pets, and in the case of the
feline species, "crazy cats" are pretty common. These
crazy cats will often display behavioral problems, which some owners
see as a burden and a cause for worry. While crazy cats may not
be an abominable monster beneath your bed, those who love their
pets are alarmed by odd, aggressive or bizarre behavior.
A feline's brain weighs a total of 1-percent of their body weight,
while humans are 2-percent. Kitties can see shapes and recognize
colors and they have very good memories.
Do the Hokey Pokey and that's what
it's all about!
Felines are much more likely to remember bad experiences, and that
explains why some crazy cats have traumas and fears when confronted
with a situation that reminds of them previous bad experiences.
They can even recall faces and scents, as well as places of comfort.
Judgment passes on these crazy cats when they display behaviors
like turning over their water bowl, or perhaps biting the hand that
feeds them. There is always an explanation for this, as this type
of negative behavior always has its roots. Perhaps the crazy cat
doesn't like stale water. You can always freshen up the water for
your pet, or better yet, purchase a water fountain from the pet
Knocking over figurines and breaking precious displays does not
mean that the cat is crazy or stupid. Maybe your kitty is bored
and looking for some things to do while prowling around your house.
Jumping and clawing are their instincts and you should expect them
to do it.
Get something for your crazy cats to do. Toys can be useful, as
it will keep them busy and out of trouble. Or better yet, spend
some time playing with your crazy cats. As the owner, bonding
with your kitty might solve the problem without the need to buy
Testing One, Two, Three ...
Run some tests on your crazy cats. You can create a sound by using
an empty can of soda with loose coins. Try to rattle it and make
a sound to see if your crazy cat pays attention or runs toward you,
or maybe the snapping of a can opener might get his attention.
By doing these things, you will often find that you don't have
a crazy cat. Why? Because his instincts are well intact and it responds
to the call of his nature, which is to eat (snapping a can opener
or rattling a can of food can get their attention).
The behavior of your animal is its way of conveying its feelings.
Wacky and bizarre behaviors are best explained if the owners take
time to consider past traumas. Traumas are sometimes embedded
in the cat's memory, so one that may appear crazy is just going
through what we humans would refer to as post traumatic stress
Having an understanding of trauma does not only apply only for
human to human relationships. If you admit that you are a superior
to an animal, then along with that superiority comes the responsibility
of recognizing their behavior for what it is. Only then will you
truly understand how to care for your crazy cat.
If your crazy cat is prone to knocking things over, invest in a
kitty condo, or tower. Install some feline ramps or a heated window
perch. Have interactive playtime with your pet on a daily basis.
Talk to, stroke and sooth your crazy cat so you can nurse it back
Would You, Could You ...
Think about it for a minute. When the crazy cat is in the room
and you call its name, does it come over to you? When you are
running the can-opener or snapping open a can of cat food, does
it come running?
Many new cat owners misunderstand their behavior, and want to know
if something is wrong with their pets. These people will often declare
that they are plagued with "stupid or crazy cats!"
As the owner, though, you must see to his every need including
buying toys, scooping out his litter pan and worrying about him
when he is ill. If your crazy cats demonstrate odd behavior, this
doesn't mean that there is anything wrong with them. Remember,
a feline's brain weighs 1-percent of the animal's total weight.
The human brain weighs 2-percent of our overall weight.
