#doyouknow Why do cats hate aerosol sprays?
There may be a couple of reasons for this: firstly, when cats are feeling threatened or pushed into a corner, or if they are startled, they will hiss. It’s an explosive sound. The action reveals a gaping mouth and teeth which are hard to ignore, and the animal or person that has provoked that response can feel the air passing as the cat hisses. So it is understandable that cats don’t really appreciate the equivalent of a hiss from an aerosol at close quarters.
Secondly, they have sensitive hairs on their body that help them feel their surroundings and a spray will set off these touch receptors very suddenly and violently and the cat may not enjoy or understand the sensation. Chemicals in sprays may also smell very strong to the scent-sensitive cat.
Iz there a reason you grabbed da lizard out of my mouf and removed me from my own catio? 😼🦎😲 P.S. Last night I caught a lizard and bit off his tail. Catdad saved da lizard and put his tail over da fence. 😬🙈 Today I caught da same lizard wif no tail! Meowmy was so upset at me. She saved him (or her) again. 3rd times a charm? Tomorrow maybe. 😜😹
#doyouknow Why do cats drink from the tap?
A cat’s motivation to drink is not connected to hunger so many find it confusing when water bowls are provided directly adjacent to their usual feeding area. Some cats adapt to this strange set-up relatively easily but others reject this water as unsuitable and seek other more acceptable sources.
Taps, glasses of water, vases and goldfish bowls are all potential thirst quenchers but the best option is to provide dedicated drinking vessels in alternative locations well away from your cat’s food.
Some cats also prefer running water so pet drinking fountains can be purchased as a more practical source than a constantly dripping tap.
