It’s possible that you’ve had ownership of the dog in the past. Or perhaps you had hamsters living in your home. Or perhaps you had canaries or parrots that you kept in a cage. And now, when you are considering getting a pet, you think to yourself, “let me have a cat this time; no hassle with her; she does not need to be walked on a leash several times a day, like a dog; I do not have to worry that she will fly out the window one fine December day, like my beloved parrot, which never returned and probably died, poor fellow, from cold and hunger; the apartment will not have the intolerable “mouse smell,” which is characteristic You believe it to be nothing more than a simple feline. Nobody seems to mind that many of my close acquaintances have cats as pets. Everyone simply does that, you know, praises their leopards and luces for being extremely intelligent and witty in addition to having great manes and tails. It may seem as though there is no other topic for a table talk other than the rights and customs of everyone’s favorites, the primary members of the family, which are domestic cats and cats.
And now, you have a little kitten living in your home. However, much to your sorrow, terrible shocks await you each and every day, and even each and every hour. These are scratched children’s cheeks and hands, and (oh horror!) new tights lined like a staff, and most importantly and disgustingly – conscientiously soiled (or, more simply, filthy) corners, or rather – one corner, but chosen by your pet with an extraordinary sophistication, the most difficult to access in the whole abode. This includes broken dishes, which are more often expensive ones, the ones that stand in a conspicuous place “for beauty”; You are desperate. And now, after a few days of this, and with it happening more frequently (which is even worse!) After a few weeks or even months of a chronic nightmare that has exhausted the whole family, your acquaintances will find out that “the cat had to be attached to relatives at the dacha,” since “the child (grandfather, mother-in-law, sister-in-law) is allergic to cat hair!”.. After a few weeks or even months of a chronic nightmare that has exhausted the whole family, your acquaintances will find out that “the cat had to be attached to relatives at the dacha.” The term “allergy” is, of course, nothing more than a reasonable excuse to get rid of the obnoxious animal, the presence of which in your home for even a short period of time has given you, to put it simply, inconvenience. You have never heard of anything like this from your friends and girlfriends, who brag about the exceptional intelligence and uncommon beauty of their cats. This makes the inconvenience all the more frustrating because you have never heard of anything like this before.
And as a consequence of this, another unfortunate little creature of the feline kind ambles with a morose expression on a child’s mustachioed muzzle along the cold staircase of someone else’s entrance, piteously and helplessly opens its little pink mouth, in vain trying to meow hoarsely, and sometimes stops and, with agony in glance, rubs his head against the ledge of the step – in fruitless attempts to free himself from the dirty gray bow that Do not fall for your own flattery! Pink bow – in your opinion, sufficient recommendation to be adopted into a “decent family” of “kind people” who undoubtedly live in one of the nearby apartments – and so, a pink bow will in no way save the unfortunate animal from the fate of a wandering, “nobody’s “cat. Pink bow – in your opinion, sufficient recommendation to be adopted into a “decent family” of “kind people” who undoubtedly live in one of the nearby apartments (or cat). It’s possible that one of the empathetic renters would bring the destitute man some milk in a can and give it to him when he’s hungry. And he will be thinking to himself, “Look, they just threw it in. The older one, the big one, is now three months old. It’s likely that he’s been shitting.” The kind-hearted landlord or tenant would send the emaciated man some milk in a tin can to give to the man who is starving. And he will be thinking to himself, “Look, they just threw it in. The older one, the big one, is now three months old. It’s likely that he’s been shitting.” The kind-hearted landlord or tenant would send the emaciated man some milk in a tin can to give to the man who is starving. And he will be thinking to himself, “Look, they just threw it in. The older one, the big one, is now three months old. It’s likely that he’s been shitting.”
And very soon, the other occupants of the entry, both caring and severe, will have the opportunity to make sure that the unlucky animal does not know the order: I am obligated to state that the most common cause of diarrhea in cats is drinking cow’s milk in its unadulterated, full form. If there is a pool of liquid, putrid-smelling excrement in the corner of the entrance, it will cause neighbors who are very clean and cautious to think that the cat is sick with some type of infectious disease, and a decision regarding the cat’s fate will be made as quickly as possible.
But the outcome would have been very different had you been aware, before hand, of a few things that were deceptively straightforward but were, all the same, of the utmost significance. The fact that the heaviest domestic cat in the world weighs or the number of hairs that are in the whiskers of an angora cat is, of course, highly instructive. I can bring up the “flying cat” and the advantages of “dry food” in the context of a table talk while maintaining the air of an experienced gourmet. However, even the most comprehensive education of this sort will not offer you the assurance that the nooks and crannies in your apartment will continue to be clean, that the drapes will not be damaged, and that the animal will continue to be happy and healthy. Should you choose to acquire a high-end, purebred cat, you are obligated to seek advice from an expert regarding its food, requirements, and behaviors. But if you decided to go with “just a cat,” I hope you would read what is contained within the pages of this book.
You didn’t say something like, “Well, my Murka’s everything is in order even without your teachings,” when you put the book down, did you? Instead, you thought, “Interesting! Or, if I give it another shot, maybe I’ll have better luck this time. .. Nevertheless, it’s a little unsettling to think of him now… Because, when it comes down to it, it’s highly unlikely that he did anything wrong, right?
You are, of course, quite interested in learning how to keep the house clean and prevent damaged flowers from appearing on the window sill. Nevertheless, that is not where we begin. And not even the place that would be best suited for a kitten. And that’s not even addressing how he should conduct himself throughout the first few days of his visit to your home. Let’s begin with a seemingly contradictory statement: it doesn’t matter how well you take care of your kitten, how assiduously you follow the most accurate and faithful recommendations of specialists and your experienced friends in this area, or how much love you have for your little companion, the maximum amount of time a kitten will spend living in your home is no more than six months, and it may even be less than that. “ You could be thinking, “Well, this is some kind of nonsense!” However, this is not “nonsense,” but rather the unquestionable truth! The point is that in six to eight months (you won’t dispute this fact!) Your kitten, in line with the natural the laws of nature, will simply develop into a giant strong cat, who is already glancing at the adjacent roof with a level of interest that is far removed from academic curiosity. Or it will be a graceful fluffy cat that listens more frequently to the energizing sounds of faraway “March concerts,” despite the fact that the time of her maturation occurred in July. Because of this, right now, when you don’t even have a kitten yet, you need to figure out the most important problem, which is whether you’ll have a cat or a cat living with you under the same roof. After all, each one possesses its own unique set of qualities. There are certain aspects of this that will not in any way appeal to you or the other members of your family. Because they are fundamental to the very nature of every member of the feline subtribe, it is unfortunate that many of these characteristics cannot be changed and will have to be accepted. If you are not prepared for this, you should consider getting another animal instead, such as fish for an aquarium or earthworms to keep in a flower pot. These animals have intimate difficulties, but their owners’ lifestyles are not significantly impacted by those problems. In most cases, you should restrict yourself to a stuffed cat or a clockwork plush toy at the very most. But if you are adamant about following through with your plan to bring a live kitten into the house, you should, first and foremost, at the very least theoretically acquaint yourself (and coming from the most pessimistic perspective, I insist on this!) with the distinguishing characteristics that are inherent in adult felines of both sexes.
