Timo The Cat Has Hilarious

 Confrontation With A Feather

By Amber James


Timo the cat will not stand for intruders on his family’s property, and he’ll stop at nothing to make sure his people are safe…from feathers!
In this hilarious video, Timo is seen playing outside when he spots a big feather floating in the wind. This curious cat is intrigued and decides it’s time to confront the foreign object. Crouching down, he’s ready to pounce, but his landing may need a little work.
The cat ‘attacks’ the feather and rolls around on his back a few times but doesn’t manage to hold onto it. No doubt, this cat can entertain himself for hours! When he’s not chasing butterflies in the garden or lounging in his comfy hammock, Timo can have just as much fun with a feather.
“Timo doesn’t need a lot of toys, just a feather is enough to have some fun,” his owner wrote on YouTube.
Timo continues to play with the feather, even planning a hysterical sneak attack from behind the bushes. Watching this clumsy cat is just an endless amount of cuteness. Now if only this clip was a little longer. Don’t you agree?!
Who ultimately wins this epic battle? You’ll have to watch the clip and decide.

Adorable Cat Joins In When Owner Sings

 “If You’re Happy And You Know It”

By Anna Halkidis

Usually when the children’s song “If You’re Happy and You Know It” plays, kids eagerly respond by clapping their hands and sometimes even busting a move.
It’s a favorite amongst many children and even babies too. Who could forget the precious little twins who sang along with their mother?
But, who would have thought that some cats could love it just as much? No really, it’s true! There’s the one entertaining cat who joined in on the Portuguese version and became a viral hit with millions of views on YouTube. I definitely added to a few of those views!
I was blown away again when I came across Hattie, the adorable cat below. She’s another furry cat who just can’t get enough of the popular tune.
“Alright, are you ready, Hattie?” her owner asks.
Seconds later, it’s easy to be amused by this clever little feline. Of course the cat can’t clap, but she’s able to do something even better. Just wait till you see what she does when her owner starts singing the words. And pay attention to her move at the end. It’s absolutely priceless!
How does the owner get her cat to do this? I’d certainly love to teach my Jack Russell terrier to do this, too.

We Love Cats, But A Stinky Cat Isn’t Always 
Pleasant To Be Around! Don’t Let It Continue!
BY ADAM G.

No one likes having a smelly cat. It isn’t their fault, and they shouldn’t be blamed for it. The real culprit? It’s probably you.

Smudge walking on the litter boxes!


No, we’re not saying you’re a bad parent! The majority of maldigestion issues are the result of poor nutrition. Sadly, most of the food out there is made primarily of carbs and plant based proteins, both of which lack the nutrition cats need to stay healthy. Cats have specific nutritional needs, namely protein, vitamins, and minerals. Do you know what they don’t need? Carbohydrates. Yes, the much maligned nutrient is something that cats are not naturally inclined to eat. Yet most commercial cat foods contain as much as 70% carbohydrates!
So, if cats don’t NEED carbs in their food, why is it impossible to avoid them, and what kind of complications do they lead to? While not inherently life threatening, carbs may hold the key to your smelly and gassy feline.

Carbs serve a fairly important job in cat food, stretching out the amount of food to help keep prices down, and providing an easily digestible energy source. That’s right, even though cats typically only get about 5% of their nutrition in the wild from carbs, they can digest carbs and use them for energy. Dry food uses carbohydrates to give the food form, texture, and to keep it together in a way that’s easy to handle. Without them we wouldn’t have dry food at all! This leads to the important question. If these carbs aren’t BAD for you cat, how can they lead to digestion issues?
The issue come from the amount of carbs you find in your cats food.
The most obvious reason an excess of carbs is dangerous for your kitty is the same reason carbs are so maligned in the human nutrition world. While a quick and easy form of energy, carbs are easily converted to glucose, meaning that it is very easy for a cat to take in far more fuel than they can burn off. The result is obesity and other serious digestion problems, from mild to severe, that can include excessive gas, bloating, and diarrhea. While small amounts are easily digestible, the larger the quantity, the more difficult it is for cats to digest, leaving portions that aren’t broken down. The undigested carbohydrates will then ferment and create bacterial overgrowth resulting in the production of gas, and leading to other symptoms of maldigestion, including that unpleasant odor.

If you need to de-stink your cat, the most effective way is to scrutinize the nutritional content in his food. Protein is the most important ingredient.  Look for “complete and balanced” on the label as a great indication that the food uses high quality proteins. The term “complete and balanced” officially indicates compliance with The Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) requirements.

Protein sources with “named” protein in the listed ingredients are vital to search for as well. Chicken, turkey, lamb, beef, etc are key. A huge number of brand name foods contain by-products, meat or bone meal, and other wiggle words that apply to things your cat should NOT be eating. Corn or rice meal are another sign to tell you to put the bag down and move on.
The final piece of the puzzle is water. Cats are not huge water drinkers, and in the wild they get the majority of their fluid intake from their food. Adding wet food to their diet is a fantastic way to help keep them hydrated, a more natural way for them to consume their nutrients, and will also help them better digest their dry food. Treat them to a few cans a week and you will notice a marked difference in their litter boxes.
And as a helpful reminder to not ostracize smelly cats, we’ll wrap up with this classic hit.  Remember while you laugh: diet can make a cat more socially acceptable – and healthier.

Well, That’s It. I’m Never Going In A Lake Again! 

This Shcat Is Just Too Scary!

BY ADAM G.



The now world famous “Shark Week” is almost upon us. Everyone loves to watch these terrifying and efficient killing machines. Any apex predator that has survived 5 extinctions over the last 450 million years is worth attention certainly, but do we ever consider how such attention makes it easy to forget other insidious, water dwelling predators? Well, I certainly do! And so, I wish to address a danger lurking beneath Lake Michigan, a threat that might prevent humans from ever enjoying the beach again!

I’m talking about the Shcat. This silly name belies the monstrous reality of this blood-thirsty swimming feline. Luckily CATastrophies took time out from producing funny and informative videos about shelter cats to bring us this first hand account! BE AFRAID!
