Feline Friendly? You’ll Love This Cat and Mouse Game!

Posted May 26, 2014

Cat owners share a very special bond with their favourite felines which can’t be described as anything short of love. It’s the reason you never hear of “cat likers”! If you like cats, you love cats, and all the silly, curious, fiercely independent behaviour that goes along with the species. For anyone who has ever wondered what it would be like to walk a day in their cat’s paws, Mashable shared some exciting news recently: Cat Simulator is a soon-to-be-launched third party game that will allow cat lovers to follow all their feline instincts, including filling their tummies, taking naps, climbing trees, and chasing mice. If the game’s Kickstarter campaign is successful, the final version will feature customizable kitties, un-lockable features, and multiple scenarios in which players can act out all their feline fantasies.

To prepare you for success in your Cat Simulator gaming scores, today the team at NHV Natural Pet Products is going to explain your cat’s top 5 most puzzling behaviours:

1) Feeling Kneady
Ever find your cat rhythmically massaging your legs while she sits in your lap? It’s an instinctive behaviour that begins shortly after birth. Kittens use this kneading motion to stimulate milk from their mother when hungry. Your cat clearly feels very safe, comfortable, and loved- a bond akin to what she felt with her Mom.

2) Tight Squeeze
We’ve all been there: You purchase a sprawling new bed for your kitty, only to find him curled up inside a shoebox or flowerpot. What’s the deal? In the wild, cats would typically sleep in dens- small, dark areas that keep them hidden from predators. That shoebox, though not terribly comfortable to our eyes, is instinctively a safe hiding place for your cat.

3) Night Wailer
It’s hard to get a good night’s sleep when your feline friend is up howling during the wee hours. Chances are, she’s lamenting the loss of a bug she was hunting, or conversely celebrating catching something savoury. You can pacify your cat’s urge to hunt late at night by providing enough stimulation during the day in the form of food puzzles and enriching toys.

4) Surprise!
Most cat lovers have at some point received an unwanted “present” from a cat. If your cat proudly brings you home a mouse, it’s a sign of gratitude for taking such good care of him. Be careful not to give him too much praise though, unless you want those gifts to continue.

5) Heads Up
Ever wonder why your kitty head butts your leg when she sees you? It may seem aggressive, but it’s actually her way of greeting you and communicating how safe she feels when you’re around. Give her a little snuggle to repay the favour.

So the next time you scratch your favourite kitty on the head and wonder what goes on inside that feline brain, rest assured there is a light at the end of the tunnel. With the introduction of Cat Simulator and a little help from NHV, you can now know the inner workings of your kitty’s mind just like the back of your paw.
