Our brains are in overdrive as we are constantly trying to figure out what’s going on. It’s hard to just sit there and watch the sun set without being affected.
We’re not alone. Almost every day something strikes us and we have to figure out what is going on or whether to stay home and watch a film or go to a party. We all have our own weird quirks that make us a bit quirky, but even if we don’t, we all have the tendency to get too excited and have to get our brains working.
I don’t know about you, but I’m a bit of a cat person. Not just because I have cats and their feline instincts, but because I have cats and their feline instincts in spades when I take a nap, or when I see someone I like looking at me, or when I’m bored and want to get out of my house.
Well, there goes your cat. One of the few benefits of owning a cat (other than the fact that it’s cute) is that it can help to kill your stress. Cats are the most reliable of all animals for reducing stress. A recent study found that cats have a higher stress level than any other animal in the world, and they’re the only animal to earn the top spot in that list.
It’s actually a double-whammy. Cat owners, you can help alleviate your cat’s stress level with one of two strategies. Either buy a cat carrier that you can use to carry your cat around, or feed it canned food. Cat food can help to reduce your cat’s stress by making your pet feel less dependent on you.
The cat carrier is a good idea. I used to carry my cat in a small metal bag that I would put in the back of my car. It worked fine until I got into the habit of having her on her own. It seems that cats are no longer content to be outside and they need more than just a food bowl to keep them calm.
Yes, cats are now a thing of the past. While I don’t think I’ve ever encountered a cat that has left me alone, I’ve heard of cats leaving their owners for a long period of time. I’ve heard of them coming back to eat the cat food that I left out for them. So don’t put your cat carrier in the garage.
Ive been seeing a few cats on the bus lately that have left me alone. These cats are usually my roommates, and Ive seen them go for long periods of time without a caregiver. Maybe they are just lonely, but Ive noticed that many cats go days without food, and then suddenly attack and eat their owners. Ive also seen cats who have been gone a week or so without a meal, and then suddenly attack and eat their owners.
In all of this, my suspicions are that raccoons are on the prowl for cats, and have taken out the cat food out of the bag. The cats are also eating the cats. That seems a little less unlikely, but it’s still a possibility.
I do think that raccoons have a love-hate relationship with cats. I know when I was a kid I hated cats and I still do, but I also know that I have a lot of positive memories of having cats in my life. When I was a kid, my favorite cat was a tom who my older sister and I had named “Sugar”. He was a sweet, quiet, happy cat.
