Snoops and Kommando: Cats and COVID

How to take care of your human: Tips & Tricks - Lolcats - lol | cat memes |  funny cats | funny cat pictures with words on them | funny pictures | lol cat  memes | lol cats

We are using cute pictures to go along with this post because we like them, not because they have anything to do with the topic.

JUST STOPPING BY TO SAY HI | Cats and kittens, Say hi, Hi quotes

Greetings from Snoops and Kommando. This is a pretty strange topic for us to be commenting on. In fact, we try to ignore the human world as much as possible. However, our human has forced this topic upon us.

Paperwork -

She has been sick for a couple of weeks. Finally she went and had one of those virus tests. The doctor thinks she has it. She might never know. It seems that where we live the results have to be sent to the State department of health who then calls. Only humans would come up with a silly process like that.

It was really nice having her home at first, but we are getting tired of it. She isn’t sick enough to be in bed all the time, but she’s really boring. She’s taking up space on our sofa. And we’re not sure about the kibble budget since she’s not working.

May 2015 – Journey of a MOOCer

Why are we talking about her when we are usually the center of attention? We wanted to make sure she wasn’t going to make us sick. And the news is pretty comforting, although there are a few things we want to pass along.

Can Cats get COVID-19?

Apparently the virus really likes humans. They say that humans can pass this thing around easily. Luckily, we have superior immune systems. There have been a few cases in domestic cats, but we seem to be more or less safe from it.

Does it Make Cats Really Sick (like some of the humans)?

There have been very few cases to study, but it seems to be similar to a common cold. The virus stayed in the upper respiratory system and did not go into the lungs. The cats all made a full recovery in less than 2 weeks.

How do Cats get Sick?

So far, the cats have have caught the virus from their humans. However, the scientists think that cat-to-cat transmission is possible. So if you have a sick friend, be sure to wear a mask and keep your distance.

Do We Need to Avoid Our Human?

We don’t recommend you totally avoid your human if they are sick. However, someone else should feed you (and take care of you) as much as possible. If you only have one human, it shouldn’t be a problem. As we said, the virus is very rare in cats. And no human has gotten COVID (or many other viral diseases) from a cat.

Lolcats - test - LOL at Funny Cat Memes - Funny cat pictures with words on  them - lol | cat memes | funny cats | funny cat pictures with words on

Do We Need to be Tested?

There is a test for pets, but you really don’t need it unless you are sick with a respiratory problem and have been close to someone with COVID. If you don’t have symptoms, there is no reason to think your human gave it to you. There is no routine testing for pets, and your vet will have to check local regulations before testing.

Once again, cats have proven their superiority to humans. However, if your human is sick, remind them to wash their germy hands a lot.

Cat Forum: The Original Cool Cats

Back To School Quiz: Weekly Challenge

Greetings from Snoops and Kommando Kitty and welcome to Cat Forum. It appears that the humans have a holiday coming up called Indigenous People Day. As you know, we would never care about a holiday with “People” in its name, so we won’t be celebrating. However, it did make us wonder when cats first graced North America with their presence. So we sent the Cheeseland interns on a hunt. And wouldn’t you know it, some of the best information came from Purr and Roar, one of our favorite blogs about all types of cats.

Saber-tooth Kittens Were Big-boned | HowStuffWorks

First is the fearsome saber-tooth tiger (Smilodon). If you’d been around 10,000 years ago, you might have seen one of these guys roaming around. We would have been looking from a distance, because they were seriously scary. It appears that they lived in packs, but no one was brave enough to tell them that cats don’t do that. They could roar too. Pretty cool.

Homotherium - Wikipedia

We also have the scimitar cat (Homotherium). They were found pretty much everywhere, in all climates. It appears that they were fast runners, and big. Skeletons suggest they weighed up to 800 pounds. Because of their size and speed, they could eat whatever they wanted (even mammoths). They were around long enough that they might even have hunted humans. Very cool.

American lion - the largest lion in history | DinoAnimals.com

Next is the true king of cats, the American lion. They may have been the largest cat of all time, weighing over 1,000 pounds. The humans aren’t sure if they were related to modern lions; they might be related to jaguars. It doesn’t really matter. Obviously, these cats ruled.

Lynx Cubs … | Lynx kitten, Animals, Cats

So who’s left? Unfortunately, none of the big guys are still around. However, North America still has six wild cats roaming around. They are bobcats, lynx, ocelots, cougars, jaguars, and jaguarundis. They are relatives to the earlier cats, and are definitely not domesticated. We recommend you stay in your own social circle.

We see the gental cat hunting its pray AND THEN SNEAK ATTACK - Annoying Squirrel - quickmeme

Where are we in this timeline? Actually, we are all descended from Middle Eastern wildcats (Felis sylvestris). Over 10,000 years ago, cats started saving grain from rodents and humans (finally) saw what awesome creatures we are. The rest is history.

Working from Home Memes That Are Hilariously Accurate | Reader's Digest

Of course, our ancestors didn’t swim over here. The settlers brought cats to protect their supplies from rodents on their ships from Europe. Once cats were here, we were basically just work animals. Can you believe it? Humans are so slow sometimes.

Why Cats Rule the Internet

Finally humans realized how truly great we are. There are over 85 million of us in the United States. (Don’t forget ferals and shelter cats.) We rule the Internet and some of us even write blogs.

Rex The Cat on Twitter | Cats, Funny cats, Funny cat memes

We come in all sorts of colors and patterns. Some of us talk a lot and some of us are strong, silent types. Some are social, and some prefer their own company. But we can all take pride in our powerful ancestors. Remember, we train humans; they don’t train us.

Snoops and Kommando’s Guide to Halloween

Halloween Safety for Cats

It’s that time of year again to start preparing for Halloween. Of course, this year will be a little different, with social distancing and all. Your gathering may be a lot smaller than in years past.

Pin by Michael E. Porter on  Animaliiiiii...mistiiiiiiiiiiii...insetti...roditori...eccetera..eccetera...  | Cute animals, Animals, Cats and kittens

Don’t let that stop you from having a great time. You can still break out the niptinis and mouse puffs. Some berries would be fun. And don’t forget the pumpkin (you can eat it after the party.) Helpful hint: If you don’t have enough mouse, you can substitute any finely chopped meat.

Cat drinking game. Every time they say "here kitty" you have to take a drink.  - Lolcats - lol | cat memes | funny cats | funny cat pictures with words on

You’ll need to make the niptinis ahead of time. All you need to do is put a couple of pawfuls of catnip in a pot of boiling water. Turn down the heat and let it simmer for 5 minutes. Repeat for every two guests. Remove it from the stove and refrigerate.

Just before the party pour the niptinis into bowls. Be sure everyone gets some of the leaves. The fortuneteller will need them later.

As you know, we refuse to wear clothing of any type. Therefore, we are not offering any suggestions for costumes. However, we hope that you will not go as any type of food or a dog. Too embarrassing.

Some cats have a dance contest. If you want to do this, we recommend that you wait until the ‘nip has had a chance to work. Most cats don’t like to dance.

Another idea is a seance. If you do try to reach a departed relative, avoid the ones who talked constantly or were whiners. You’re supposed to be having fun.

Who Says Cats are Finicky Eaters?y

Can Cats Eat Watermelon? – Can Cats Eat watermelon without any problem? |  Pro Active Pet Products

You’ve all heard humans say that it’s so hard to find something that kitty likes to eat. Or that kitty used to eat (whatever) food all the time, but now she won’t touch it. Or kitty will only eat one variety of a certain brand.

My Cat Stopped Eating Raw - What Do I Do?

We would like to suggest that maybe kitty isn’t the problem. Maybe it’s the food. Would most humans like to eat the same food every day.? Do most humans like diet food? Do most humans appreciate it when someone else changes their diet?

How To Keep Your Cat From Begging During the Holidays – Meowingtons

Most humans know that cats are obligate carnivores , and we have to get some essential nutrients from meat. Commercial cat food is prepared to be the most balanced diet available for cats. But that doesn’t mean that we wouldn’t enjoy a healthy treat once in a while.

Can Cats Eat Carrots? - Catster

A lot of kitties like the occasional veggie snack. Particularly popular are spinach, pumpkin, peas, and green beans. Cats can also have asparagus and broccoli, but it must be steamed before it is served. We don’t have any teeth to grind the fibers in them. They do make excellent toys.

Can Cats Eat Peaches? - Catster

Do you have a yen for something a little different? Fruit is an excellent choice for a treat. Fruit-loving cats usually like apples, bananas, blueberries, cantaloupe, and peaches. Just because we can’t taste sweet flavors doesn’t mean we won’t enjoy fruit. Maybe it’s the weird skin.

sad cat can't eat bread :( : sadcats

A few other foods that some of our furry relatives like are eggs, oatmeal, cheese, and bread. Remind Uncle Leo that his human should only serve him cooked eggs. Scrambled and hard-boiled are good options.

Can Cats Eat Cheese? Is Cheese Safe For Cats? - CatTime | Cat cookies, Cat  post, Cats

A lot of us are sensitive to dairy products, so cheese is not always recommended. However, for the rest of us it can be an extremely yummy treat.

If some of these snacks sound good, tell your human. Humans can be extremely difficult to communicate with sometimes. If they don’t get the message the first time, keep trying.

Cat Forum: Living with a Baby

Cats and Babies: Friends for Life - The Conscious Cat

Snoops and Kommando here. Welcome to this month’s edition of Cat Forum. The topic was supposed to be “How to Correctly Treat a Cat,” with next month’s being “Living with a Baby” after our human sister had her baby. But she messed everything up by having her baby last Sunday. So we are turning the blog over to the baby’s feline siblings.

Hello. Thunder here. My siblings have chosen me to be spokescat. I’m the new kitten here. I am a little upset. I was the baby before the little human arrived. And now he’s the center of attention.

I’m not supposed to share his drinks or lay in his bed or jump on him. He is no fun whatsoever. I think they should take him back.

Onyx here. He’s not so bad. I mean he smells weird and is kind of funny-looking. He only has a little fur on his head.

He is pretty much out of my way most of the time. But I hope he moves into his own room soon. I really want my humans back to myself at night. Mom says they have to finish his room first.

It’s Angel. He’s gotten a lot of really cool stuff to sit on and in. Like this dresser. I just hope they don’t cover it with junk. The new kid seems to have a LOT of stuff.

They said he won’t bother my cat tree. So I just have to keep an eye on my pesky new sister cat.

I’m Gypsy. The only thing I’ve really noticed about him is that he really sounds like a cat sometimes. Maybe he wants to be a cat.

I wonder how long it’s going to be before I have to guard my food from him. Someone said that he’s going to want to put everything in his mouth pretty soon.

Thunder: We took a vote, and he can stay. But as soon as he pulls a tail, he’s outta here.

What’s in a (Cat’s) Name

Is a group of kittens really called a kindle?” | CATERPICKLES

We follow several blogs that have pictures of beautiful kitties. The titles on the posts are kind of weird. Like, it will say “Fluffy Kitty” and show a Sphinx, or it will say “Black Cat” and show a striped orange kitty.

Finally got a name tag for my cat!! : MinecraftMemes

We started thinking about the names that cats actually have and decided to look up the most popular names. Then we discussed what we thought a cat with that name would look like. Our descriptions are not intended to portray anything negative about our perfect species. It is merely intended to give humans some guidance on what type of name fits what type of cat.

Here are the top 10 kitty names in the U.S:

Most elegant cat I have seen ever. | Hübsche katzen, Katzen, Süßeste  haustiere

Luna – We think this name belongs with an elegant cat. One who shows her superiority innately; she never needs to meow about it.

Princess Aurora – A Photogenic Cat Royalty | Cats, Pretty cats, Cute animals

Bella – Another beautiful cat. She attracts beautiful cats around her.

Kitty – What can we say? There are really that many humans who can’t think of anything better when they name their fur babies?

Lolcats - manners - LOL at Funny Cat Memes - Funny cat pictures with words  on them - lol | cat memes | funny cats | funny cat pictures with words on

Oliver – He is well-mannered and would never think of not sharing his prey with his hunting-deficient humans. He doesn’t want them to starve

There is always one kid, in every group that ruins the photo for the rest  of the group. . . | Crazy cats, Kittens, Pretty cats

Lucy – A fun, outgoing kitty. She likes to be with other cats and is playful with them and her humans.

Types of Domestic Longhair Cats | LoveToKnow

Leo – Obviously, the king of all he surveys. He has a mane and a beautiful coat. He knows he’s superior and all humans are his minions.

The Most Playful Cat Breeds

Charlie – The male counterpart to Lucy. He’s good-natured and hard to rile. A cat who’s fun to be around.

One is another's shade | Cats, Christmas cats, All black cat

Shadow – A dark-coated cat who slinks around. They can sneak up on their human out of nowhere and scare them silly. Exception: A small kitten who won’t ever leave her human’s side. These cats grow up to be excellent protection for their human from fish and chickens.

Charming Cat Picture - Cutest Paw

Simba – He’s a king, but with a playful side. He can charm his human so well that they’re his minion before they know it.

Intellectual-Cat | Funny cat wallpaper, Cute cats, Cats

Milo – An intellectual cat. He will outsmart his human every time. But he’s lovable so they laugh about it.

Hopefully, you will show this information to your human for future reference.

Snoops and Kommando: The Liebster Award

Triumphant Cat | Cat stands, Funny animals, Cats

Snoops and Kommando here. When our pal Suki nominated us for the Liebster Award, Mom said she was too busy to do it. But we pulled out all the stops on our adorableness and finally she said that she would help us. So thanks for nominating us Suki!

The way it’s supposed to work is that we thank Suki, answer his questions, nominate 11 new bloggers, and send them new questions. However, Mom said that she didn’t have time to do that (sigh). She did agree that we could give a meow-out to some of our buddies at the end, so we settled for the compromise. If anyone would like to answer our questions, you can consider yourself Liebster-ized. If you’d like to answer a few in the Comments, that would be pawsome too.

Dear owner, I hope this letter finds you well. I'm writing to let you know  I am out of milk. Please refill di… | Funny animals, Funny cat pictures,  Funny cat videos

Here are the questions:

If cats could speak to humans, what do you think they would say?

The first thing would be to tell her to stop buying those boxes of wet cat food. Some of our favorites are in there, but so is a lot of really disgusting stuff. The other thing we would do is to make her feel guilty for leaving us alone so much since she got a second job. Oh, and the most important part: she needs to stop bossing us around.

Have you ever done catnip, and what was it like for you?

Catnip totally rocks. Complete bliss. Unimaginable energy.

A cat with a rather large fish in his mouth : photoshopbattles

Tuna or Salmon?

We get a lot more tuna. They share their salmon with us, but we’d like our own can once in a while.

Who’s your favorite celebrity feline?

We don’t spend much time on the Internet, so we don’t really know any famous cats. We are very fond of Simon’s Cat. His attitude is an inspiration to all cats.

Dogs in purses: yea or nay?

Why on earth would we want them anywhere near to us. They should stay at home, where they belong

What was the last thing that made you laugh?

Mom put down a couple of bags of groceries and knocked over a glass of water. She always yells at us if we do it, so it was funny when she did it and didn’t have anyone to yell at.

It's Official, Cats Are Extremely Talented At Sitting… | Purrtacular

Do you have a sibling and did they ever sit on you?

When we wrestle, one of us usually ends up on the bottom. Snoops is bigger, so it’s not really fair. (Kommando’s comment)

Do you wish you had fur instead of that weird skin?

(We think Suki’s human must have written this questions.) We’re sure all humans would rather be beautiful, fluffy creatures.

Lolcats - door - Page 2 - LOL at Funny Cat Memes - Funny cat pictures with  words on them - lol | cat memes | funny cats | funny cat pictures

If  your pet had opposable thumbs, what’s the first thing they’d do in your house?

We’d take down the doors. Then we could go wherever we wanted to.

If you were a feline, what would your name be?

(Another question from the human) We might name ours Cuddles. Maybe she’d spend more time cuddling with us.

How to get my cat to stop eating human food - Quora

Have you ever eaten someone else’s food when they’re not looking?

Of course we steal each other’s food. But that’s no challenge. It’s more fun to try to steal human food. Sometimes their food is nasty, so be sure to take a good sniff before you grab and go.

Your Cat Has A Question For You | Paws Pet Care

Here are our questions:

How did you choose your human?

Have you ever sneaked outside?

What’s your favorite season?

Do you have any siblings of a different species (you may include humans)?

If you could only have one channel of Cat TV, what would it be?

What is your proudest moment?

Does your human have any habits that drive you crazy?

If you could only have one toy, what would it be?

Have you ever gotten even with someone after they got you in trouble/embarrassed you?

Have you been able to train your human to hunt?

Do you have a favorite hangout?

Boots McMittens: Cat on the Street

Small tabby kitten, holding and singing into microphone photo WP42168

Boots McMitten here. Today I am reporting from the streets of Marona, a small town across the state. I have been talking to cats over the past few days about life during the current crisis. I’m getting interesting responses about the impact on their lives.

Is the crisis impacting your relationship with your human?

cat « Vincent Eaton Storyteller

Caesar: Most definitely. She is still out of work, and I’m about ready to get a job myself. Her job can’t be done and home, and she is on the phone or doing something loud all of the time. I love her, but I need my “me” time. And how much bread does one family really need?

Different Cat Behaviors And Their Explanation | Housediver

Bella: I’ll say. She’s working from home, and seems to think that my lair is her office. She has even started putting papers on my tree, if you can believe it. And she said I was “making it hard to type.” She told me there are plenty of other spots in the house I can use. I was there first. I think she should move.

Lolcats - kids - LOL at Funny Cat Memes - Funny cat pictures with ...

Cinnamon: My human isn’t really the problem. She’s always worked at home, so we have our routine. The problem is the small humans. They have been home furr-ever! No school, no camp, no sports, nothing. They are always underfoot, but they never fed me or give me treats. Really, I see no point in having them home at all.

How about the food situation?

My Cat Won't Eat After Being Spayed

Zinnia: The humans told me that since money was a problem, we would all have to sacrifice. So they started buying me discount cat food. It is so disgusting! It is even worse than the diet food they tried to get me to eat last year. It’s a good thing the dog and I learned how to open and close the refrigerator door.

Oreo: My day-to-day food is about the same. But my humans used to have other humans over a lot. That’s not happening, so there’s no extra burgers or fish to snatch and run with. I don’t miss the other humans, but I do miss the food.

Tabitha: I like the food being delivered to the door. The human has it coming on some kind of schedule, so I don’t have to deal with “I’m sorry, I forgot the kibble. I’ll get it tomorrow.” I get treats more regularly too. All in all, this crisis has worked out pretty well for me and my food.
