Are Cats Loners?…

Most people consider cats loners, or aloof. But… is that true?

The Truth

No, it’s not really true. But don’t leave yet, I’m not done. I consider cats loners as much as I consider dogs loners. Cats need their space, but that doesn’t mean cats don’t like attention. It’s an instinct. Cats are solitary animals. They almost never see another cat, apart from mating time. When they do meet another cat, the cats either fight or one gets scared away. Same thing goes when cats meet other animals that aren’t prey. The animals that could easily crush cats are usually stayed away from. So when cats encounter humans, domestic or not, it’s not rare that their first thought is run. Even affectionate cats still have their instincts, and sometimes they just need their alone time. But all these cats are domesticated, and need their humans. Even the shy or aggressive ones feel an urge to be with us. In fact, one of my cats called Shadow, is very shy. Yet we have a bond. Every night ( or every time I’m in bed ), Shadow would always jump onto my bed and fall asleep purring with me. My other cat Domino is very affectionate, yet even she sometimes needs her time alone. But both cats love me, and it’s staying that way.

My Short Conclusion

So now I hope you understand why cats aren’t loners. And remember, be sure to give your cat lot’s of attention, but also give them some privacy, and you’ll both be very happy!

A History of Cats’ Domestication

Cats were domesticated a bit earlier than you think. In this article I thought you like some info about how cats were domesticated. So, let’s begin!

Cats and People Introduced

Many people think cats and people first encountered each other because rodents were always trying to steal some grain. The cats would then swoop in and save the day by hunting down the rodents and eating them. Then, after many years of human interaction the cats would become domesticated.

However, another theory was introduced. Some people now think cats were attracted by trash left carelessly out in the open. The cats would salvage pieces of food and soon got used to the humans in the area. The people would also get used to the cats, and decided to take care of them. Feral cats are not easily adjusted to people, but if they had kittens, and the kittens were raised all their life by humans, the kittens would easily become very affectionate. But the people back then weren’t as smart. The feral cats would have their kittens raised outside. Only years later kittens started appearing in homes. When I say years, I mean thousands of years. Cats only then started to like always living in people’s homes. And I think that both of those rumors are true. After all, it is possible.

Feral VS Stray

You have to remember that feral cats are basically the cats before they were domesticated, except that the cats were african wild cats, not the normal feral cats. They usually have had little or no human contact.

Stray cats are very different. Stray cats are cats that were either abandoned by their owners or got lost and never found their way back, ending up in the wild. Usually they’re still used to humans, and their wild instincts aren’t as strong. I think the stray cats that survived gave birth to kittens. These kittens never had human contact ever since they were born, so they became feral.

Here’s an example: My cat Shadow was rescued by the animal shelter when she was about one and a half or two months. She is more shy than most cats because of this. Domino was born in Cameron Animal Shelter and had stayed there until we adopted her. She is very affectionate and loves to cuddle. Well, I hope you understood my explanation, which I think is very simple and short!

Tell The USDA To Stop Killing Cats!

 USDA is killing innocent kitties for no good reason, and we have to do something. Today you will learn what else they’re doing wrong, and how to stop it!

The USDA Kitten Crimes

USDA is not only killing cats, they’re doing experiments on them! The first step in this horrid cycle is breeding the cats. They breed 100 cats annually. Next, they’re raising the cats up to two months and then feeding them raw meat with toxoplasmosis, which is then harvested from the cats’ feces and used for other experiments. Then the cats, which most are healthy and if not then could easily be cured, are killed.

A spokesperson from USDA says in defense, that ‘the cats could affect the pregnancies of many women if they come in contact with the cat.’ And yet the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention argues that the parasite could only be from the feces of cats a few weeks following the infection. So if USDA were to keep the cats for a few more weeks the families would be fine. The USDA spokesperson counters this pointing out that the parasite could last longer in the cats body than thought, and it could be reactivated later again.

So then Senior Vice President Gudrun Ravetz of the British Veterinary Association then says the chances of them happening is low, and that only people with weak immune systems are likely to get infected. He also says that if a person does have a weak immune system that they should follow NHS advice for precautionary measures. Ravetz also added more advice on how to minimize getting infected, like washing your hands thoroughly after cleaning the cat’s litter box. So in conclusion, USDA still has no good reason to be killing cats.

How To Help

So there. I’m pretty sure you’re ready to learn how to help. One way is by visiting https://www.whitecoatwaste.org/contact-congress/#/11. Just search that up and it should pop up. Once you’re on there you’re able to contact the congress and state how you think USDA are treating cats and dogs wrong. Another you could do there is to donate money to help stop this horror. If you’re want to help a different way, you could spread the word. How? By making videos, writing articles, or even telling people you know and could help. If my article didn’t help convince you, go visit Kitten Lady’s channel. She’s a cat activist and has made a very descriptive video about USDA. So that’s it, I hope you decide to help stop this…
