5 Problems Only People with Multiple Cats Will Understand

  1. You’ll never know who had diarrhea in the litter box.
  2. You never know who shat out a red string. Or a gold thread. Or a rubber band (or two).
  3. You don’t know who left the surprise pile of puke in the kitchen. Or the hallway. Or in the precise place you step when you get out of bed in the morning.
  4. You’re not sure who ate all the dry food. Or the wet food.
  5. You’re not sure who left those scratches on the fake leather ottoman. Or the new leather chair.

The bottom line is there is a shitload of uncertainty and mystery. Unless you install hidden cameras all over your house and watch them, like a psycho stalker (no judgement), these animals co-exist with us, often active when we’re asleep and we have to find the zen with this lack of control and knowledge. I imagine the TV reality family, The Duggers, with their 19 children, had to also acquiesce to this kind of lack of ungovernability.

On the flip side, multiple furballs have definitely translated to multiple bliss. Watching the interaction between kitties is equal to watching an older sibling hold the baby’s hand. There are moments of a feline fairytale, which cuddling cats, echoing purr sessions, and lick-fests, which I call kiss-fests. The love you get from one cat is exponentially more from two cats – or three.

Additionally, cats have a biological need to roughhouse, scratch and bite (LOVINGLY). When cats have sister/brother/roommate cats, they have buddies with whom they can get their aggression out. I recommend getting cats in pairs because innately they are animals who are most content with their pride. They feel happier, safer and more social with cats around them.

Mother Cat and Kittens – Mother’s Day Cats

A mother cat and her kittens share a very special bond. Adorable and very tiny, newborn kittens rely on their mother for warmth, food and protection. As they take their wobbly first steps and begin exploring the world the mother cat guides them along, showing them what is good to eat, how to drink water and how to hunt prey and so much more. In short she teaches her little kittens how to be cats. Many of whom go on to join new human families and hopefully find new human mums and dads to love them and take care of them!

Sunday the 26th of March is Mother’s Day, or Mothering Sunday here in the UK. A special day to show our appreciation and love for our mums, who we all share a very special bond with. It’s also a time to spend with our families if we can, including the feline members…

As a cat lover and artist I have designed and illustrated some new cats and kitten cards for the cat loving mums and cat mums (and dads) out there, ready to send for Mother’s Day, or other special occasions when a cute cat is the best messenger. Happy Mother’s Day folks! 🙂 Meow…

Thanks to Marc for inviting me to share my cats with you! I have a growing range of cat cards and cat prints available directly from my shop – Teeth and Claws and also via my Etsy shop too. Do take a peek…
