Cleanliness is next to Godliness

Cats are well known for our cleanliness, as keeping our coats nice and clean is always one of the top priorities in our lives. But I think it's also important to keep your home clean. And as my humans sometimes forget to clean glass surfaces in our home,  I like to give them a paw whenever I can spare a minute or two. Have a look!


The art of fly hunting

A while back I shared a short video of my first attempts at catching flying insects. Thanks to all your helpful tips and a lot of practice, I think I now perfected my own technique of catching little flying prey. Here are my 3 basic steps:
  • Step 1: Acquire target: You always have to be ready to spot your prey. Don't really on humans for that, their eyesight is quite poor.
  • Step 2: Warming up: I like to warm up before getting to serious business with some vocal exercises. While warming up, keep your eyes locked on the target, plan ahead.
  • Step 3: The hunt: When you've studied your target and are all warmed up, it's time to jump into action! And I mean that literally. Don't be afraid to use your claws, and don't forget to use your tail for balance.
And as usually, here's a short clip of me demonstrating this technique:

I hope you find my tips useful - and if you've got any advice on how I could improve my technique, be sure to let me know in the comments!


Enjoying the warm weather

Aaah, after a pretty cool and rainy May, it finally seems that we're getting ready for Summer. That means little flying insects are back in the air and that my humans are now leaving the window open for longer periods of time.

So, if you've been wondering what I've been up to since celebrating my 1st birthday, here's a little snapshot from my new full time job:

You know how it's like - us cats have to make sure all traffic is counted and all birds closely observed. But I can't really complain about my job!
