    Functions of the Paws
    The cats’ important little “fur-feet”

    • Get rid of excess heat
    • Prevent slipping
    •  Shock absorbers
    • Sound absorption
    • Sensors

    If your kitty’s paw pads become irritated or cracked, help your cats drink more and also try moisturizing them with olive, coconut or another food-quality oil that will be safe for them to lick.

    Maintain Hygiene
    Keeping your cat’s paws healthy by wiping their paws every day. Check between their paws for litter or other debris that may be stuck. Trim your cat’s nails and the hair on the paws to prevent bacteria infection.

    Cats’ paws contain large concentrations of nerve receptors. If you can give a massage to your cat’s paws, it will promote better blood circulation and improve their health.


    Looking straight = Bold & confident
    Sleepy eyes = Soft & relaxed
    Look away = Obedient
    Pupils dilated = Frightened

    Slightly out to sides = Calm
    Erected & move forward = Alerted
    Erected & move backward = Exciting
    Lower the ears = Nervous

    Panting = Excited
    Lip licking = Stressed
    No mouth tension = Calm
    Keep closed = Confused


    Look Straight
    It is happy to see you, and it comes closer to you while you reach out your hand. It welcomes you.

    Look Upward
    If your cat is sitting up straight and looking upward, it is listening to you. Or something out there gets its attention.

    Eyes Wide Opened
    Cats open their eyes wide when they are alert or nervous.

    Arching Back & Tail-down
    Cat is defensive and adopts a self-protective posture

    Turning its Back to You
    A cat turns his back on you because he knows that you are not going to hurt him. It’s one of the ultimate signs of love.

    Rolling Around on the Floor
    This is your cat’s way of saying, “I trust you.”


    Skin & Coat Care
    Take good care of their natural coats. For long-haired dogs, you need to brush them every day; for short-haired breeds, it’s recommended to brush them 2-3 times a week. Cats will groom themselves, but you can brush them twice a week or more.

    Be careful not to bathe your dog too often during winter, because overwashing your dog’s skin can cause irritation.

    Keeping Warm
    Keep your pets safe and make sure their beds are away from your household heaters, preventing our furry friends from overheating or burning their fur and skin. Overprotecting your pet from the cold may weaken their immune system.

    Your pets’ gastrointestinal function may be weakened during cold weather. Pay attention to their diet and control the excess fat accumulation. You may provide them with some nutritious food as supplements, e.g. eggs, fish, and vegetables, so to maintain their nutritional balance.


    Helping with loneliness
    A report indicated that an elderly owning a pet can have an astounding effect on feelings of loneliness comparing to those who don’t keep one. The positive influence is more obvious in solitary elderly as pets can help increasing social interaction.

    Stress relief
    A Swedish study found that when a female simply pets a dog for 15-30 minutes, it lowers the stress hormone cortisol. And when a dog owner pets their dog for 1-5 minutes, oxytocin increases in the brain, bringing a calm state.

    Lower risk of heart disease
    《Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology》, after a 20-year case study research, announces that keeping a cat can lower the risk of heart disease. Some thought that maybe cats can help the owners to relax and unwind, thus maintaining normal blood pressure.

    Keeping your mind sharp
    An American aging medical journal realised that seniors living with pets will increase self-care, including concentration, better memory recall and reactions.

    Getting more exercises
    Owning a dog leads to more exercises and it benefits humans’ health. Michigan State University’s study showed that the dog owners exercise 30 minutes more than people who don’t own a dog.

    Soothing physical pain
    Being with a pet can help to distract one from pain. Research shows that animal therapy reduces the need for pain medication after taking joint replacement surgery.

    Lower risk of allergies
    Some studies found that having a pet early in life protects one from developing allergies towards pets later on. But it has to be very early in life, like when one is still a baby!

    Help diagnosing diseases
    Studies indicated that dogs can detect serious intestinal diseases at an early stage. They can be trained to sniff out a variety of cancer types as well.


    Dogs and cats have poor eyesight, so they rely on smell to learn the surroundings and communicate with others. The sense of smell is crutial to their survival.

    Who do you think have better sense of smell? Dogs or cats?

    Dogs have 300 million scent receptors, which is at least 10,000 times more than humans. They can smell as far as 20km, some breeds can even reach 30kmCats have 100 million less receptors than dogs, so they can only smell within 20km radius. However, it does not mean that cats have worse sense of smell than dogs!

    One of the secnt receptors is called V1R, which is responsible for distinguishing odors. Humans have 2 V1R receptors, while dogs have 9, and cats have 30! Although the distance that cats perceive scent is shorter than dogs, they can distinguish similar scent better.

    Then why are there police dogs but not cats?

    Because cats are born to be masters for you to serve them!


    Cats’ cute appearance and cattitude personality attract many people to become their slaves. Let’s take a look at how many cats’ slave signs have you got!

    • Splurge on cat toys and supplies, want to give the best to the cats (although they don’t appreciate it most of the time)

    • Become a poop-picker: When your cat goes to the toilet, you observe the size and shape of the poop to ensure your cat is healthy
    • All your conversations are about cats: exchange cat care tips and tricks with other cat owners
    • Become a home person: worry that your cat will be lonely and hungry at home, so you’d rush back home at night

    Why do cats insist on putting their paws on top?

    Have you tried playing hand stacking game with a cat? Put your hand on the cat’s paw, it will immediately pull its paw out and place it on top; no matter how many times you repeat, the cat will always place its paws on top.

    What makes the cat persist?

    1. Sensory ToolsIn addition to using whiskers and smell to perceive the surroundings, a cat’s paw is another important sensory tool. Cats’ paws are full of nerves and sensitivity. When a cat feels an object touches it, it will reflexively use its paw to detect the object.
    2. Reserve Space for MovementCats are very alert to movements, and often need to run or jump suddenly. If a cat’s paw is pressed, its movement will be limited. Cats need to ensure that there is no obstacles above their paws.
    3. Protect Hunting ToolsCats are born to be hunters. Cats paws have mute effects, helping cats to approach their preys quietly, while their claws are used for attacking and hunting. As an important hunting tool, cats will protect their paws and will not let others touch it.

    If you cat doesn’t mind you pressing its paws, CONGRATULATIONS! You are officially a recognized servant of your cat!

    Trick or Treat! Three Halloween safety tips for fur babies!

    Halloween is around the corner!

    Have you decided what your fur babies are going to be?

    Here are three safety tips to keep in mind.


    1. Make sure the costume is simple, comfortable and not too tight. There are no dangling or easily chewed-off pieces that your fur babies could accidentally swallow.
    2. Keep all the candies out of fur babies’ reach, especially chocolate! It’s toxic to them!
    3. There will be more people going out at night than usual. If you take your dog out for a walk, it may feel stressed with many strangers walking around and making loud noises.


    Always watch for signs of stress in your fur babies. If they show anxiety, take them away from the scene and calm them down.

    Do black cats bring bad luck? It’s a myth!

    Speaking of Halloween, witches and black cats are the first things that come to mind.

    Have you ever heard that if you see a black cat at night, misfortune will happen?

    Black cats have different meanings across the world. Let us take a look at these superstitions today!

    Black cats are witches and devils in disguise?

    In the Middle Ages, European churches began a large-scale witch hunt to strengthen the faith. At that time, there were rumors such as witches turned into black cats to hide, black cats were demons sent by witches to spy on humans,etc. This led to the execution of black cats along with those considered to be witches.

    This terrible witch hunt lasted from the 12th century to the 17th century. It created an impression that black cats are associated to witches, black magic and evil things.

    Black cats bring death?

    Western countries in the Middle Ages believed that dark-haired animals, such as black cats and crows would bring death. Italians believed that death was imminent if a black cat lies on the sick bed; American also believed that seeing a black cat at a funeral means another family member is about to die.

    At the same time, some countries or traditions believe that black cats will bring good luck. European sailors believe that bringing a black cat on board can ensure a safe journey; Japanese believe that spotting a black cat means a chance to meet true love; the Scots believe that a black cat at the doorway will bring good luck. But in fact, all of these beliefs have no scientific basis. They are just superstitions.

    >>> Don’t be superstitious. Give love to our black-haired fur babies! <<<

    Black cats have the lowest chance of being adopted and higher chances of being euthanized in shelters. The elders considered black cats unlucky and resist adopting them. Black cats also look unapproachable in photos, people subconsciously think they are less friendly, so they prefer cats with lighter fur colors. 

    These should not be the reasons to stay away from black cats. Try meeting the fur babies in person, and see how it feels. Give the black-haired fur babies a chance.
