Moving house with your cat

Moving house is a super exciting but equally stressful time for everyone involved, and can be an all too regular experience if you’re a renter. Add your furbag to the mix then all you’re thinking about is whether they’ll settle in ok to their new den and if you’ve remembered to pack every last speck of catnip; that’s when anxiety levels really can go through the roof. Cats are super sensitive to their environment and routine, so upping and leaving is a pretty big deal for the little guys. But moving doesn’t need to feel this stressful. There are simple …

Budget Friendly days out for Cat people

Unbelievably we’ve made it to 2022. The last few years for most of us have been a whirlwind, but we’re sure we can vouch for many by saying it’s our cats that got us through it. Wonderful little purr machines of zen, we salute them for keeping us calm throughout the crazy and forever being our furry therapists.  As we see in the New Year, a lot of us will naturally be on a bit of shoestring after the splurge that is Christmas. We got to thinking how we cat people could still get our fill of feline fun on …

Selfcare for Sphynx cats

One of the more slept on breeds in the cat kingdom is the Sphynx, and we’re really not sure why. Sitting regal and proud in all their naked glory, the Sphynx cat is up there as one of the more affectionate breeds who love human attention, hairless cuddles and excel when it comes to tricks and agility, despite their sort of worm-like appearance. Well, we love them and their little adorable pink tummies, and we decided to dedicate an entire blog post to caring for these ethereal beauties and what goes into their regular skincare routine.  It is important to …

New Year, New You…New Cat?

Okay, so just to clarify, we’re not suggesting you need to get a ‘new cat’. Your four-legged furry king or queen is no doubt already an ideal housemate who absolutely does not need replacing – although if you’ve decided it’s time the fluff potato had a sibling, then we fully support this decision. We are suggesting though, that now is a prime time to look at making this year the best it can be for you and your feline companion. We know the classic ‘New Year’s Resolution’ isn’t tantamount to making a successful change. Over a third are sacked off …

The science behind the slow-blink

It’s up there as one of our all time favourite cat behaviours, the slow blink. Locking eyes with your lion to receive the ultimate owner gratification, the slowest blink on earth. That blink that stops time and makes you realise you couldn’t love that floof more if you tried. But what does science tell us is behind this adorable behaviour?   Many animal experts over time have concluded that the action is to signal the feeling of safety and acceptance. That around you they feel safe and they just want to let you know – too cute. To us it …

New Year’s Eve Cat survival guide

Every year is the same, the weird gap between Christmas and New Year has us all confused, napping almost as much as the cats and wondering what day it is. But it also gets us planning how to round off the year in the best way (well, fingers and paws crossed we can still party). New Year’s Eve is essentially bonfire night and Christmas day all rolled into one evening, and though we’re all ready to party and see in the New Year, we have to always think of our purr machines and their safety first. Often the four-legged friends …

Be More Cat, for a Better You! (What We Can Learn from Cats)

For most of us these days, life is pretty demanding.  An always-on society, with 24-7 emails, pressure to look great on social media, be on top of the latest trends, news and politics, plus work, family, relationships and money concerns, and then the dreaded Covid, mean that for most of us, the last couple of years have been tough. But imagine if we could tap into a more serene, calm lifestyle – achieve what we wanted and have love and fun at the same time.  Cat people know their furry housemates have life figured out. They know how to live …

The Great Cat Census – from The Office for National Catistics

It’s out!  The Cat Census is a survey that happens every nine lives and gives us a picture of cat households in The Republic of Cats (okay, well over 500 felines and their families from across the UK), with results polled over the weekend of 13 and 14 November 2021. Humans were asked a range of questions about their fluffy contemporaries, generally and by breed, covering behaviour and lifestyles, attitudes, ‘ease of use’ and more.  The following fascinating furry findings are revealed, in this, the first snapshot of leonine life around the country…   Social beasties – or not? With …

The Benefits of Cat Ownership on our Mental Health

We’re sure we won’t be the first people to tell you that this year has been a STRUGGLE. And that struggle is most definitely real when it comes to our mental health. ‘Feelings of loneliness have made nearly two thirds of people’s mental health worse during the past month’ (mind.org) during the pandemic. Coronavirus has a lot to answer for, but it’s clear to see the impact it’s had on the world’s mental well-being. Why are we talking about this on the all shiny and new Republic of Cat’s blog I hear you ask? Besides a never ending list of …
