Early experience in a cat's life - and what happens later

We know that early life experiences are shaping the later life of a human being. But is that valid also for a cat's life? Pets are emotional beings, very much like their owners, and so why should their life be very much different from the emotional point of view? Today I want to talk about "Schneeweißchen" - Snow-White - the cat who became deaf after some years, I mentioned her already in a previous post. SnowWhite came to me as a tiny kitten. I just had lost a grey kitten in an accident with my dog and I was very sad about that. So my ex-partner went out and brought back the tiny white ball. She filled all my emotional needs and I didn't think about the fact that, for the kitten's sake, it would have been better to stay some more weeks with her mother. Well, I fed her and cared for her, I was completely happy with her. Was she with me?

Do you love cats? - Here some true stories of my 25 years with cats.

In this blog I want to share with you what I have learnt in my life with cats: I moved from fear of touching a cat to total confidence in being with them and handling them in whatever situation. Cats - animals all together - are somehow like humans. Their behavior, their moods, their way of communicating, their wellbeing and their struggles with illnesses. I had about 40+ cats in 25 years, living in the Italian countryside. Many of them disappeared or died by illnesses, but I have still ...
