What are the best books about cat behaviour? We know the answer!!

Once again we’ve ended up writing such a long blog post, that it became an article in its own right!

We have reviewed SIX of the best books about cat behaviour, and put the article HERE. We’d love to hear from anyone who found these books interesting or useful, and definitely let us know if you think we have missed a good book out!

Wool-sucking in cats – what is it, and why do they do it?

Well, we started writing you a post about this, but it became so long and interesting, that we made it into an article! Read the full article here. 

In a nut-shell, we look at compulsive behaviours in cats, and wool-sucking as an example. We look at suspected causes and suggested solutions. We hark on about feeding and environmental enrichment a bit more, too!

So, what is wool-sucking? Here’s an example of a Siamese cat sucking its tail – it’s cute, but is a variation on the wool-sucking behaviour so also evidence of an interesting feline behaviour…

Feeding time gets fun – a cheap and simple way to feed your cat

Literal cat trees – it really is a tree! (sort of)

Although we call them cat trees, they don’t usually appear anything like an actual tree. Well, here’s a cat tree that really is just that! The trees are custom-made and handcrafted, and consist of a hollow ‘trunk’ supported by a wooden frame, with peep-holes and lying platforms in the trunk. The top of the tree is decorated with synthetic branches and leaves, and snuggled among these are lying platforms. Being fully customisable, you can design your own tree to fit into your decor and house – height, fabric, design details, even the leaves are all chosen by you! Amazing! They’re popular, too, as there’s currently a waiting list for manufacture, so don’t delay if you want one!
