Recently, one of our customers found out that her cat was ill, and that the road to recovery could be long and arduous. The kitty would chew on anything that was in front of her, frequently ingesting strange objects that don’t belong in a cat, like metal.
In order to mitigate the symptoms, humom bought some catnip products from us, in order to calm her down, including cute mice made of catnip and menthol, a soothing blend that would also allow her to clean her teeth.
Does your cat like to get in the water? I didn’t think so, but it’s more common than you think, especially in hot climate areas, like Southern California.
Mom has a cat, Cleo, who likes to get in the shower, being lathered, rinsed and dried with a towel. She is also the kind of cat who loves dripping faucets and won’t drink from anywhere else.
Mom has to open the faucet and wait for her to drink, and to refresh herself by sticking her head under the water. This has never caused an accident, but she wouldn’t leave her alone, until she mews and walks away.
Cleo has a long and thick coat of fur that must make her life miserable, unless the air conditioning is working at full capacity.
Try petting your cat during baths.
You can use a brush like these. It would help you to quickly remove loose fur and dirt, while you calm your kitty down with the natural bamboo roller and 40%boar pins.
Toxoplasma gondii is a parasite found in cats, especially in their feces. It is known to alter the behavior of chimpanzees, who are primates like us. Chimpanzees infected with Toxoplasma gondii act fearlessly toward the smell or leopard urine, although leopards are chimpanzee’s natural predators.
Infected chimpanzees act normally toward the smell of urine of other large cats, who don’t prey on them. It is speculated that the parasite makes the host more likely to be eaten by a feline, the only animals in which Toxoplasma gondii can breed. This is why some speculate that the parasite actively steers feline prey toward cats.

Why you should care about leopards and chimpanzees.
Because there is another hypothesis which indicates that Toxoplasma gondii could cause schizophrenia. Another experiment, this time with mice, showed that the infected mice lost their natural fear of house cats.
