Dika, 14 years old dog

She is not exactly mine, but we play a lot. Dika is my grandparents' dog. Few years ago when I was a student, we spent much time walking around the parks and playing. For compensating that I don't have enough time now, I sent her my Shiki.

New kitten found

New kittenYep, yesterday I found new little ugly kitten. And now I am going crazy arghhhhhh. This one month old toy is running around, fighting my clothes and my other cats and eating cables. She is ugly, dark, small and tiny, and she wants to fight everything everywhere. I wonder how to find new owners to this little beast ...

We found her near one of the biggest streets of the town, trying to play with passing people. I haven't decided on a name yet. Maybe Chi?

Home made cat food

There are many opinions about what is the correct way to feed a cat. Of course almost all of them are opposite to each other. I don’t claim that what I do is perfect for my cats. How to feed your cat is your own decision. I only can share some of my experience. The main thing to remember regardless the type of food that you feed your cat is that cats are predators. Naturally they eat meat. Most of the time outdoor cats eat whole mice or small birds.

It is very important to insure a variety of foods for your cat. Feeding with one food over and over again can lead to harmful deficiencies of certain essential vitamins.
In other hand it is good to know, what are the foods inappropriate for cats.

Foods to avoid:
  • Chocolate
  • Onions
  • Raw pork
  • Raw fish
  • Raw eggs
  • Tuna fish

Also don’t use spice when making pet foods. All kind of spices are unfit or even harmful for cats. Keep in mind that home made food needs to be kept in a refrigerator.
My cats love roasted or boiled chicken meat. Also they love boiled eggs and sometimes the even eat raw vegetables. Be careful when using chicken meat with bones, kittens under the age of 6-8 months can’t handle the bones. Roasted fish is a valuable delicacy but no more than twice a week. The meat can be cooked together with some rice and vegetables. Cats are not humans, they don’t need complex recipes.

One other way for feeding cats is the raw diet - BARF. I haven’t tried it and I am not sure if it is good for the cat health. If you want to know more about it I recommend starting from Wikipedia - Barf Diet.

A fun video from youtube

Unbelievably funny video. This guy is awesome and he understands cats so much! Enjoy!


A friend of mine brought her one year ago. He told me that his dogs found this kitten on the street. She was about a month old, cute and little. Now she is one year old, a little fat, cute and big. But this picture is so sweet that I wanted to share it with everyone everywhere.

Playing with your cat

Playing is something very important for in-door cats. They need a lot of exercises to compensate for living between four walls. Cats who don't run and play enough become fat and are predisposed to health problems. So ... how much time to spend playing with my cat? It depends on their personality and on some other factors. If cat lives with other cats it will be more likely to prefer playing with them not with a human. If it is that sort of a situation you won't have much work - just sit quietly and laugh. But if your cat is the only pet - it is time for a hard work. Throwing a small ball or dragging a toy around. And if your cat is already fat and lazy it will be very tiering. But don't give up so easy. After a week or too of fruitless jumping and crying your cat will pity you and will start to play!
Be careful and don't give a cat thread because it can be swallowed and can cause deadly problems. Cat toys and small balls are the best choice.
