Cats and Kittens

Cats (Felis catus) and people have been cooperating and living in harmony for many thousands of years to our mutual benefit. Domestic cats originated from the European and African wild cats (Felis silvestris).

Domestic cats are usually playful, loving and loyal pets. They are excellent companion animals and are normally easy to train. They are very clean as they groom themselves. Cats can purr and meow they can also growl or hiss on occasion. They are territorial animals. Birman cats are said to have guarded the Buddhist temple of Lao-Tsun.

Contrary to popular belief cats cannot see in complete darkness, they do however have excellent night vision . They have a layer of cells at the back of their eyes that reflect the light. Folk law associates cats with magic and witchcraft. Black cats are particularly associated with Halloween.

The ancient Egyptians shared a unique relationship with cats. They viewed them as sacred animals and used them as hunting companions. Many ancient Egyptian Tombs have been discovered containing mummified cats.

It is crucial that cat owners only keep as many cats as they can feed and care for in a practical manner. Each year thousands of cats are euthanized because their owners are unable to care for them.

Whilst indoor cats are not a threat to native wildlife their free-ranging counterparts have a severe impact. Cats are excellent hunters and stalk their prey silently. They are opportunistic and will hunt, whenever the opportunity presents itself . They are however, naturally nocturnal hunters, and may cover large distances when hunting at night.
