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.

Cat Forum: A Baby? No One Asked Us

TrekLens | Frightened Cat Photo

Greetings from Snoops and Kommando Kitty. Thank you for joining us for this month’s edition of Cat Forum.

Kommando: When our human sister was here a couple of days ago, she’d really gotten fat.

Snoops: She’s not fat. She’s going to have a baby soon.

Kommando: You mean a little human?

Snoops: It’s like before I had my kittens.

Kommando: You mean they’re going to be put in cages until they’re adopted?

Snoops: No. Humans stay in their own houses.

Kommando: Are they ever going to come over here?

Snoops: Probably. She’s still our sister.

Kommando: That’s true. I’m going to look up babies up on the Internet.

Kommando: Snoops, we have to talk to Mom. I don’t think we want a baby here.

Snoops: What’s the problem?

Kommando: They’re noisy.

Snoops: So what? Most humans make too much noise.

Kommando: No, it’s different. Babies cry and sometimes nobody knows why. So they can’t turn off the noise.

Snoops: I guess we’ll have to find a good hiding spot. We’re used to it being quiet.

Kommando:  Plus, they smell really bad sometimes.

Snoops: Why?

Kommando: They don’t use a litter box. They poop and someone has to clean them up.

Snoops: Eww. That sounds terrible. What else?

Kommando: The humans will cuddle with them more than with us.

Snoops: Oh my cats! Think of his poor sis-furs.

Kommando: I know. We get our cuddles from Mom and our human brother, but they won’t have anyone.

Snoops: Anything else?

Kommando: I don’t think so right now. In a little while, it will start to move on its own. Then we need to make sure we’re not around. I don’t want to get sat on while I’m sleeping.

Snoops: We better talk to Mom. She’ll know a good hiding place.

Stupid Question: Are Cats Smart?

Smart Cat Blank Template - Imgflip

Well, of course we are.

Pin on Funny

Cats are Smarter than Dogs

Humans always talk about how smart dogs are. That’s because dogs are dumb enough to take the humans’ tests. We cats have better things to do with our time.

My brain just exploded - Lolcats - lol | cat memes | funny cats ...

Our brain structure and folding (that thing that make brains look lumpy) is 90% similar to the humans. We’re not really sure we agree that thinking like humans makes us smart, but they do. We have 300 million neurons (nerve cells) in the part of the brain that controls thinking and decision-making (the cerebral cortex). Dogs only have 160 million neurons. Cats rule.

We Learn the Same Way Humans Do

Cats have what they call procedural learning. We watch and then we do it ourselves. That’s why we can open doors, ring bells, and turning on lights. Generally, we don’t turn lights out (that’s left to our human minions).

We also have what is called object permanence recognition. Just because we can’t see something doesn’t mean we don’t know it’s there. That’s why it’s a really bad idea for humans to hide our treats. We know they’re somewhere, and we will find them.

We totally rock at taking new information and applying it to what we already know. Then we can use what we have learned in new situations. We are extremely intelligent kitties.

We are Smarter than Your Human Baby

We can eat our food by ourselves within a few weeks of being born. Your baby needs to be fed for an extended period of time.

20 Of The Cutest Pictures Of Cats And Babies

There is no question that we are cleaner than your baby. Your baby doesn’t care what they look like or what they are covered in. We wouldn’t dream of going out without being fully groomed. And we bathe ourselves.

We are capable of catching our own food. When was the last time you saw a human baby catch a mouse for dinner?

A Cat's Guide to Training Your Human - YouTube

We Train our Humans, They Don’t Train Us

We do what we want to do, when we want to do it. We have our humans trained to feed us, cuddle us, and clean up after us. They play when we want to. A few purrs and cute looks, and they are wrapped around our paws.

So stand tall, fellow cats. We are the superior beings.

Advice for Today’s Cat

Image result for cat watching tv meme

Welcome to House of Cats, the home of all things cat. Put your humans in another room and enjoy some time with us. Today we are welcoming Muffy Fluffington, the author of Own Your Human, Don’t Let Your Human Own You. Today Muffy is going to answer some of the most common questions she gets.

Image result for cat helping cook

My human says I never do anything, but when I try to help her, she puts me on the floor.

This is a common problem. Humans just don’t understand that they need help with their typing, cooking, and needlework. If they won’t let you do anything else, at least share some fur. Everything is better with fur.

Image result for dieting cat meme

My food tastes terrible since my human changed it. I think she’s trying to put me on a diet.

Humans do have a funny idea about what we should look like. I think it’s part of the whole body image issue they have with their own kind. They can’t control their own weight, so they want to control ours. In your case, I would force your human to taste some of the food they want you to eat. I can guarantee they won’t like it.

Image result for cat lying on furniture

My human rearranged the furniture. My favorite tree and pillow aren’t near the windows anymore.

This one is easily solved. Pull your blanket over to whatever they have put by the window and sleep there. When they move you, go back as soon as they leave. Before long, you’ll have your sunny window back.

Image result for cat hunting mice meme

I have been trying to teach my human to catch mice for three years. Should I give up?

As much as humans complain about mice in the house, most of them never learn how to catch the little guys. I would say that you should give them one more shot. Don’t go after the mice yourself. Once there are a few running around, your human may be more motivated to follow your example.

Image result for cat with baby

My humans just got one of those miniature humans. It never shuts up. How do I get some sleep?

Those baby humans are a problem. Before you know it, the kid will be running after you and trying to give you hugs with sticky hands. For right now, I recommend that you convince your humans to get you one of those snuggle sacks that you can crawl into. That should keep out a lot of the noise. Another option is to use whatever spot you have for when they turn on the cat-sucking cleaning machine.

Image result for cat bath meme

My human wants to bathe me. Just because she read that cats should be bathed once in a while.

What an awful idea! You have no option but to make bath time so miserable for her that she gives up. I recommend you start with hissing and growling. If that doesn’t work, move on to squirming. As a last resort, kick your way to freedom. And hide where she can’t reach you.

That’s all the time we have for this week’s House of Cats. Thank you all for tuning in. You can release your humans now.
