Adopting A Cat – The First Days

So now that you are bringing a cat home, what can you expect? Unlike dogs, cats are extremely territorial and don’t trust too easily. To start with, bring your cat home in a carrier. This will provide a sense of security to the cat. Don’t show her the house as if it were purchasing it from you. Take her to the new room you have designated for the first week. And always ensure that the toilet lid is down if you happen to choose the bathroom as its first living quarters.

Quite naturally, everyone will want to meet the newest member so lay down ground rules that do not overwhelm the cat. Sit down on the floor and wait patiently till it comes to you. Do not force her into anything. Let her take her own sweet time getting acquainted to the new surroundings. In the event she decides not to approach then just let her be and try once more some other time. Remember that cats do not trust easy and are therefore easily frightened. Some cats may even decide not to come out and play when you are around rather choosing the quite of the night to do so – give them their space.

Did you know that the total number of cat breeds worldwide exceeds 70?

OK, so here we’ve opened up this page for all cat-lovers. We know that a dog is supposed to be a man’s best friend and are known to be more amicable, playful.

Feeding Your Cat

Be it for a Maine Coon Cat or a Norwegian Forest Cat, the most important thing to remember as far as their diet is concerned, is that you should always try and feed them what their natural diet is. Don’t try to go against nature by feeding them food that you think is healthy, because it might not work well for their bodies. For instance, the biology of cats has been such that their alimentary canal is not designed to digest or assimilate food grains or cereals like rice, wheat, maize, oats etc. So feeding your darling pet cat a lump of your breakfast cereal out of love, will only lead to health complications like Diabetes and Obesity. Yes, that’s right, it’s not just humans that suffer from Metabolic Syndrome because of incorrect eating; an incorrect or imbalanced diet will also take a toll on your pet.

What’s In Common?

If you have seen, read or heard about the Maine Coon Breed of Cats, you’ll be interested to know that there are several characteristic similarities between the Norwegian forest breed and the Maine Coon Breed of cats. Maine Coon cats are in fact the oldest known breed inhabiting Northern America, and despite their huge size, these are known to be amongst the gentlest of all cat breeds. So a huge, furry Maine Coone Cat with its huge, bushy tail (that’s mostly risen upwards naturally or of its own accord), might appear to be a ferocious canine, but its domestic and gentle tendencies have credited it with the nickname of a ‘gentle giant’. Now on a lighter note, that pretty much reminds us of dear old Hagrid from Hogwarts. But we’re straying off from the topic of conversation here. So let’s forget about Harry Potter and dive right back!

Given the extremely cold climatic conditions that persist in Europe almost year round, this cat species has adapted to the tough environment by evolving a thick, glossy undercoat of hair. This lush, wooly and somewhat shiny mat is what gives Norwegian Forest Cats their characteristic appearance.
