Snow - seven rules for sensible cats.

  •  Rule no 1.  You cannot have too much heat.
  • Rule no 2.  Find a human with central heating. If your human doesn't have it, then a wood burning stove, a a gas fire, or an Aga is the next best heating device.  
  • Rule no 3 (see Rule 1).  Best of all is central heating, an Aga, AND a wood burning stove. 
  • Rule 4.  Snow is magical - but only when seen from the windowsill with a radiator  below.
  • Rule 5.   If you don't  have a litter tray, now is the time to educate your human by going behind the sofa.
  • Rule 6.  Do not go out.
  • Rule 7.  A snowy day is a good day for a very long nap.


  1. Those are indeed pawsome rules! I am happy we have things in the floor that blow warm air.
    Mmmmmmm it is SO nice too :) It is a bit cool outside and rainy. I am happy to be an indoor kitty :)
    Purrs, Julie

  2. Rule 8: Ask for extra food. It's cold and you need more energy to keep warm, right?


Help for cats whose humans show behaviour problems.

This blog is devoted to the study of human behaviour. We cats, who live with this sometimes unpredictable and always feeble minded species, can benefit from seeing their behaviour in its proper scientific context. The study of feline dilemmas, training problems, and difficulties with humans, can only benefit all of us. All of us train our humans - to buy the right food, for instance, but many of us do not have knowledge of how to improve our training methods. The human species is obviously not as intelligent as the cat, but nevertheless can learn quite a lot - if properly managed. Topics of interest include the use of claw and order, purring as a human reward, rubbing your human up the right way, when to bite, spraying as a method of making our wishes known, ignoring the human, human harassment, human inattention and sheer human stupidity.
