NEWS : Republic Reassurance over cat food concerns

Source : https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-57486596  Yesterday cat owners across the land will have been plagued with worry over the breaking news of both Sainsburys and Pets at Home recalling some of their products, due to a potential link with a deadly feline disease. These superstores, alongside Applaws cat food sold on Amazon, have pulled dry food products from their shelves after an unusual rise in cases of the rare feline Pancytopenia, which can be fatal for our furry friends. The Food Standards Agency has said the current outbreak of Pancytopenia was potentially linked to specific food products that have been recalled asContinue reading “NEWS : Republic Reassurance over cat food concerns”

Does the Moon affect my cat’s behaviour?

It’s not uncommon to hear humans blaming their circumstances and behaviour on the phase of the moon, or mercury being in retrograde, but we wondered whether this could also be applied to cats? Often seen as spiritual beings with a greatness most of us will never be worthy of, we decided to do a little digging to see how connected our favourite felines really are to our solar system, and whether it could explain any of their unpredictable actions and seemingly sporadic mood swings. The word ‘lunacy’ originates from ‘luna’ meaning moon, which interestingly is one of the most popularContinue reading “Does the Moon affect my cat’s behaviour?”

Cat TV, good or bad for your furry housemate?

A recent discovery in Republic HQ is that of cat television and entertainment. With many of us working from home and staring at a screen for the best part of 8 hours a day, we turned to options that could keep our kittens entertained, especially those that are of the indoor persuasion. Many city dwellers don’t have the luxury of a garden or even access to large windows for outside world observation, so we took to the internet and did our best googling to find some entertaining options for our felines. With endless streaming possibilities for the humans, we foundContinue reading “Cat TV, good or bad for your furry housemate?”

How to throw a party for your cat

With June 21st almost in touching distance now, many of us will be planning ahead and throwing all the parties we couldn’t throw during a global pandemic. But it isn’t just the humans who’ve missed out on mingling, our cats haven’t been able to party either! So what better excuse than the end of a National Lockdown to throw a party for your cat, am I righhhht? Cats make our lives better in so many ways, and have been a source of comfort throughout the aforementioned worldwide madness, so why not thank them for all they unknowingly give to usContinue reading “How to throw a party for your cat”

Can cats fall in love?

It’s a question that you’ve maybe never really thought about as an owner. But here in the Republic, we’ve let our imagination run wild with thoughts of cat love stories this week and we started to wonder whether cats can indeed fall in love with their human parents, other cats or maybe even another animal species. As humans, we grow strong attachments to creatures of all kinds, even personal belongings very quickly, and often hold things so dear that we truly recognise this as love. But whether this can be said for animals is an entirely different story. Most likely,Continue reading “Can cats fall in love?”

Rebranding the Cat Lady

Raise your hand if you’ve ever been personally victimized by your friends, family or even acquaintances for being a cat lady? We’re pretty certain you’re not alone, in fact there’s such an odd stigma around cat ownership that we decided to write a whole blog post on it and bust this ancient mythology. The Cat Lady persona has developed over time to become a distinctly recognisable character in contemporary culture, with an emphasis on the ‘crazy’. Think Eleanor Abernathy from the Simpsons – a once ambitious bright young thing with a medical degree, acquires a cat and soon becomes theContinue reading “Rebranding the Cat Lady”

What do our cats really think of us?

Cats can be difficult to read at the best of times, but with them outnumbering dogs 3 to 1 across the globe, more than enough of us are clearly won over by their aloofly charming ways. We want to know what they really think about us in their little furry brains. When we look at cats, it’s hard not to be a little jealous of their regal grace, endless snoozing in the sun and all round bad-ass attitude. We wondered what they think when they look at us, and we’re not so sure it’s quite as adoring… According to expertContinue reading “What do our cats really think of us?”

Summer’s coming, should you shave your cat?

With the end of lockdown fast approaching, and temperatures set to rise for the long awaited summer of 2021, yesterday saw many hairdressers opening their doors once again, to get the masses looking fresh for the months of fun to come. And that got us thinking, if last year’s heatwave was anything to go by, should we genuinely be considering shaving our cat for the summer? Now bare with us on this, we know it might sound ridiculous, but essentially our little companions are strutting around in a fur coat all year round (not you sphynx cats, you’re summer-ready 24/7)Continue reading “Summer’s coming, should you shave your cat?”

How to help your cat adjust to normal life post lockdown

With the lifting of lockdown just around the corner, the humans can’t contain their excitement with the prospect of many a pint in a chilly pub garden so close we can almost taste it. However, we have a sneaky feeling that our cats might not be so thrilled about the impending decrease in owner time, even if they don’t show it. We often joke about cats being strong independent souls, who don’t rely on their people for much other than a tasty meal (find out if they really are sick of you by taking our quiz here). Though after suchContinue reading “How to help your cat adjust to normal life post lockdown”
