Today's Purrl Of Wisdom

Cat Face Line Drawing
"There are two means of refuge from the misery of life — music and cats."
-- Albert Schweitzer

Awww... I like the idea of being a refuge for our human. I don't really know what a refuge is, but it sounds nice.

Why Do Cats Put Their Toys In Shoes?

Dear Thomasina...
Why does my cat hide her toys in my shoes? Isn't that sort of weird?
-- Perplexed Cat Mom

Hi Perplexed!
To be honest, I put my smaller toys in our human's shoes all the time so I know where to find them. She has these ugly red ones that she never wears, and that's where I keep my tiny toy mice.

Maybe your cat's just being organized like I am. But instinct enters into this, too, because we're all hunters at heart, and for us, toys are almost like the tiny animals we catch outside.

I'm so excited! We're going to start doing daily (well, almost daily) cat quotes on my blog, and this is the first one. Don't you love it!

Dear Thomasina...
I recently replaced my carpeting with hardwood, and my cats refuse to walk on it. Why???
-- Perplexed Cat Mom

Hi Perplexed...
Yikes! I'm sorry your cats don't like your new floor. They'll probably get used to it.

Cats are creatures of habit, and it takes us a while to accept anything new. And new floors would be a major adjustment. I don't think I'd want to walk on them either! For one thing, they'd smell strange, and not at all like my familiar territory. And hardwood floors would probably feel slippery when I was used to walking on carpet.

Dear Thomasina...
My cat never sleeps with me. Does that mean she doesn't love me?
-- Sad

Hi Sad!
I'm sure your cat loves you a lot! I love our human, and I don't sleep with her either.

We really do love our creature comforts, and I find my own

bed much more comfortable than hers. And she's too restless. I take sleep very seriously, and I do not like being disturbed!

A Love Affair With Cardboard: Six Reasons Why Cats Like Boxes

For most cats, a new box is the best bed ever.
Dear Thomasina...
My cats have a gazillion beds, but they prefer to sleep in boxes. Why???
-- Purrplexed

Hi Purrplexed...
Love the name!

Personally, I like to sleep in a round sink. It's the perfect shape and size for a nap when I'm curled up with my tail over my eyes.

But that's just me. Here are six reasons why most cats love boxes.
