Are you giving yourself a Christmas gift of a cat or another cat into your home?

Adopting a new cat can be a very exciting time for you and your family. And while you are experiencing all these great emotions and elation, your new furry friend can be experiencing the exact opposite. Bringing a new cat into your home can be a very stressful time for your cat as they are not acclimated with the space. This stress can greatly increase if there are other animals in the home or even small children. The proper process of introducing your cat to your home can take time, but it can also take stress off the cat. Introducing two cats to each other in a new environment without consideration of their position in the home can create a CATastrophe. However, with a properly planned out introduction, cats can ease into the new environment and become lifelong pals with others in the home. The following slideshow details how to introduce your cat to your home as well as to other pets and children.

December 15th is Cat Herders Day

Cat Herders’ Day was invented sometime in the last decade, and is basically one of those cheeky holidays that you can celebrate however you want.  The phrase is pretty suitable for what it describes.  And while cats are independent, solitary, and easily distracted, many humans also share these characteristics.  So, you may well have to complete tasks that are in fact as difficult as herding cats.

This is a day for everyone who has to face the frustration of trying to manage the unmanageable, anyone whose day to day life involves insurmountable tasks.
