Do I need a collar for my cat?
Your cat should have an elastic collar with a name tag in case it strays. The elastic will stretch, enabling the cat to free itself if it should get hooked up somewhere.
How should I introduce my new kitten to her home?
For the first few nights of your new kittens arrival, a hot water bottle tucked under its bedding and a clock with a loud tick (such as a wind-up alarm clock - be careful it doesn't go off, you don't want to give your baby kitten a fright!) will act as a substitute for the warmth of its siblings and the tick will give the same sort of pulse as its mother's heart beat to provide a further sense of security.
What temperature should my cat's feed be?

The ideal temperature is 86 degrees F (30 degrees C), which happens to be the same temperature as the cat's tongue. Food taken straight from the refrigerator is disgusting for a cat. Unless it is very hungry then they will eat almost anything.

Sadly for most cats today, heated food is something of a luxury and they have learned to live with the 'fast food' mentality of modern times.

Cats lack our sweet tooth opting favorably towards sour tastes, then bitter then salty and finally sweet. Your cat prefers to eat small meals on frequent occasions, rather than gorge on large, infrequent meals. Considering the size of their natural prey - small mice and birds - this is not surprising.

Usually, the cat eats a mouse-worth of food and then strolls off to digest it, returning later for another rodent-sized portion, and so on, until all the food is gone. On this basis, if one meal is eaten and the dish emptied and then the next meal is refused, it may simply be that the cat is not yet ready for its next 'kill'.

Why do cats pur?
Cats pur to indicate a friendly social mood. However, this signal can be given when they are also in pain, such as labour or having received an injury where it is a signal of the need of friendship. When you enter a room where a cat is lying asleep on the floor and you greet it with a few friendly words, it may respond by rolling over on its back, stretching out its legs as far as they will go, yawning, exercising its claws and gently twitching the tip of its tail.

As it performs these actions, it stares at you, checking your mood. This is a cat's way of offering you a passively friendly reaction and it is something which is only done to close family inmates. The cat is saying 'I roll over to show you my belly to demonstrate that I trust you enough to adopt this highly vulnerable posture in your presence.'

A more active cat would rush over to you and start rubbing against you as a form of friendly greeting. However, there is another reason why your cat will press against you with the top of its head or the side of its face, then rubs all along its flank and finally may slightly twine its tail around you. After this it looks up and then repeats the process, sometimes several times.

If you reach down and stroke him he will increase its rubbing, often pushing the side of its mouth against your hand, or nudging upwards with the top of its head. When done it wanders off, sits down and washes its flank fur. Without you knowing it, your cat has marked you with its scent from their numerous glands.

It is important too that the cat reads our scent signals. This is achieved by the sitting down and 'tasting' us with its tongue - through the simple process of licking the fur it has just rubbed so carefully against us.
Why do cats' eyes glow in the dark?
Because they have an image-intensifying device at the rear of their eyes which act like a mirror behind the retina, reflecting light back to the retinal cells. With this, the cat can utilize every scrap of light that enters its eyes. Despite this efficient nocturnal ability it is not true that cats can see in complete darkness. On a pitch black night they navigate by sound, smell and the sensitivity of their amazing whiskers
Can cats see colours?
Yes, but rather poorly.
Why do cats sulk?
When you become angry with your misbehaving feline friend, this generally involves finger wagging, harsh words and fixed staring. Staring is very intimidating to a cat and its natural response is to avoid the hostile image of the staring eyes by turning his back, sitting down neatly and deliberately in a dignified sulk.
