Show Off?

Outdoor cats show off their hunting prowess, their devotion and love, and their worth by presenting their prized catch to their owners.

Well, the cats here are all indoors and are never let out due to their physical conditions. They have their own little ways of showing off.

Here is one cute sock of gold.

No, there are two socks of gold.

They belong to Winnie. She holding it up to show off!

Stretch and Scratch

The human body releases endorphins, the body's natural 'feel good' hormones during stress and as a response to pain. Endorphins is released during activities like exercise and in some like shopping or gambling which may result in additive behaviour.

Cats, too, release endorphins, which make them feel good, by stretching and scratching.

And Tanya here shows how.

First, you get into the right position.

Then, you stretch and scratch.

Muggy Air Makes Grungy Fur

The weather is blistering hot reaching an average temperature of 34 °Celsius. With high humidity, it feels like 45 °Celsius. 

In this muggy air, the heat is getting to us, with and without fur. Hair and fur get grungy and greasy like Pebble here.

Both Pebble and Tanya were given cold water baths two days ago and dried naturally under the ceiling fan.
