No two alike applies to snowflakes and cats. I think this quality is especially striking in living things.

Snowflakes form and drift down from the clouds, unchanged. Until they melt into water, and lose their distinction.

Living things can develop an essential Self. This, the snowflake lacks. That’s why it loses uniqueness upon transformation.

Gamma Cat Type creates a cat who notices things. My cat Smokepuff had trouble in the winter, when Mr WayofCats and I would enter our home with hats on.

He wouldn’t know who we were until we took them off. That extra distortion made us unrecognizable, as with his confusion when his humans changed for bed or got dressed to go out. These extra layers needed to be studied, and he would lose track of the face in the middle, which did not change.

If we have a “noticer” kind of cat, here’s some angles to help understand the baffling behavior.

If we want two cats, we often adopt two littermates at a young age. This can be a fine strategy, since we have the advantage of them being used to each other from the beginning.

However, without some attention to kitten personality clues and Cat Type indicators, it can backfire. Since a litter of kittens can have different fathers, the littermates can grow up to be very different personalities. It's rare for them to utterly dislike each other, but it's no real guarantee they will be actual friends.

That's not the case with shelter buddies. Past the kitten stage, easily into teenhood, two cats who have already bonded are set for life.

Adopting shelter buddies is an easy way to start. - the Way of Cats https://www.wayofcats.com/blog/adopting-shelter-buddies/30486

I sneaked into the room to make sure he was behaving himself. Then I saw that he had put all four paws into Mr WayofCats' hand.

Such adorable gestures are a Tristan trademark. He combines the drama skills of an Alpha with the ease of expression that comes from being a securely-loved cat.

"Challenged Cat" adoption is not the overwhelming task we fear. Even cats who have "done time" in cages at the shelter can come out of them to be enjoyable, adorable, cats.

What about cats with extra strikes against them? They can do fine, too.

Read or Listen to this post on the website.

Is cat love real love?

Yes.

I shouldn’t be surprised at the question, considering people often struggle with love between human beings. Where we, at least, have our own experience to go by.

Love is the feeling I get when Lou appears to exchange greetings, just because he missed me. I see it in the way Rhiannon rolls onto her back and extends her front paws to me. She squeaks her joy that I'm paying attention to her.

What we are feeling, what they are demonstrating, is real.

in the biology

Studies indicate feelings of love are connected with hormones and neurotransmitters in our brains. The same biological substances are in the similarly-constructed brains of dogs and cats.

There's no biological basis for thinking our thoughts and feelings are so very different from our domesticated companion animals. We are using all the same materials.

If we want a pet to exchange affection, then the pet's ability to do that is what we will look for. I think this is where people might feel hesitant about cats. Far too many believe the myth that cats are not affectionate.

The millions of people who love cats are, to me, an effective counter-argument.

"Your cat will love you more for reading this book!"

“For example, I can now safely cook in the kitchen while my cat supervises from his spot instead of getting underfoot. It’s like magic, but it’s in this book!”

In English, hopefully available in your country 😎

Happy #caturday! Who can help Emmy with her puzzle? #cats #CatsOfMastodon #CatsOfTwitter #CatsAtWork

A table with a half-finished jigsaw puzzle spread out. A black cat is sitting on the table. Her paws are in a box with puzzle pieces. She looks like she is thinking hard about something.

Cat Easy Button? That's how I think of my own cat management methods. With so many rescue cats, and so many things to do elsewhere, efficiency was the only way to go.

When my cats made efforts to communicate, I listened. When I saw my cats taking on responsibility for each other, I encouraged. As it turned out, partnering with my cats had even more, and unexpected, benefits.

I had found the Cat Easy Button.
