10 top tips to make life
purr-fect for your cat>
Golden Girl Rue McClanahan
loves cats so much that her home is full of
'I've had animals all my life,' says Rue, and she
learned some things that could help all cat
owners. Here are her 10 most important tips.
1. If you buy a collar for your cat, get the
type that stretches. That way, if it gets hung
up on a tree branch or some other obstacle, he
can get out of it.
2. Don't put a flea collar on your cat the
moment you take it out of its packaging.
Initially, there's a strong smell of medication
that could overwhelm him. Hang the collar up for
two hours to let it air out before using it.
3. Cats like to eat in quiet, secluded areas,
away from bright lights or blaring radios and
4. Cats really dislike dirty dishes or chipped
china, and sometimes will refuse to eat food
that's not presented in a nice way. Wouldn't
5. If your cat claws your furniture and won't
use a scratching post, get a water spritzer and
spray it lightly at the cat every time he steps
out of line. He'll soon get the message.
6. Some people recommend giving cats Vaseline
or various oils for hair balls--but don't! Cats
can breath these oils into their lungs, leading
to fatal pneumonia.
7. Don't worry if your cat eats grass. He's
probably doing it because it helps him to
regurgitate hair balls he swallowed when licking
8. Keep the litter box away from the feed
bowl, because a cat won't eat where he
eliminates. If you have a problem with a cat
wetting in the wrong place, put his food bowl
there. It will usually stop him.
9. Some people declaw their cats, which takes
away their self-protection. A cat allowed
outside should not be declawed.
10. When you travel with your cat, always put
him in a cage. If your cat gets scared, he can
squirm out of your arms and run away in an

The cat is merely bringing its trophy to a place
where it can eat it in privacy, explains Univ. of
British Columbia animal behaviorist Dr. Abbe
If you don't believe it, just watch how your cat
scampers off with its "gift" as you try to
approach, says Dr. Schwarz.
If your cat refuses to look at you after you
scold it, don't think he's petulant or angry at
you. The cat is merely acknowleging your
superior position in the relationship.
And when a cat greets you by rubbing its head
against your cheeks, the pet isn't just showing
affection--it's also "marking" you with its scent
from glands located on either side of its chin!
One In A Million
Mercedes the cat is dfinitely one in a million.
This amazing black feline stowaway ran away to sea in 1990 from her home in Kent, England, and incredibly survived for 50 days without food or water, locked in a metal shippng container containing a Mercedes Benz automobile in the hold of an oceangoing vessel.
Mercedes finished up in Port Adelaide, Australia, 17,000 miles away, weighing only four pounds and at death's door. For almost two months, Mercedes, who must have had a full stomach when she accidentally got locked in the container at dockside, kept herself alive by licking condensation inside the metal crate.
The Australian owner of the Mercedes Benz was so impressed with the cat's foritude that she decided to adopt the gutsy little fighter. And it was her new owner who gave the cat her new name -- Mercedes.
