Carefully Getting A Feral Cat To Trust And Love Its Owner

Some people have trepidations when it comes to bringing feral cats into their homes. It's hard work, we know, getting them to relax and trust you, but we also know that every cat needs love, care and protection, especially those who are feral but find their ways into our homes. A lot of times, someone like us is their best if not only hope, and though it's true that it's hard work, it is worth it. 

This viral thread by straightcreepen on imgur proves just that. Feral cats are not easy to work with, and it takes a long time to get them to trust you, but once you do, there is nothing more gratifying and heartwarming. Most cats' love is hard-earned, but the love of a feral cat is especially hard-earned, but it is also especially worth it.

Staying Warm With Cats Hiding From The Rain At Home

It's been a long week already. A lot has happened, we know. And after everything, all that we feel we need right now is some calmness. We want to sit down with a cup of tea by our windowsill, watch the rain pour, and think about absolutely nothing, letting the gloomy weather bring a feeling of calmness with it. Preferably, we would also have our cat with us for some snuggles for that. 

We only have Friday to go, and then we can do all of that ourselves. By for now, we hope these calming, wholesome pictures of cats staying snuggled up and warm inside, hiding from the rain, chilling, and doing exactly what we want to do will bring you that little bit of relaxation that you need

Fifty Photos Of Cats, That Is All

We come to realize, we all need a break from the media and constant negativity. It causes too much stress and leaves you feeling quite dim inside. That's why we like to balance it out in the best way we know-how. 

Through cats. Cats being ridiculous, cats being hilarious, just cats being cats

They say that petting a cat helps relieve anxiety and worries. However, not everyone has a cat that allows that relief so that's why we're posting fifty images of cats. We believe that looking at photos of cats is just as calming as petting one. So, please take a moment to let go of any negative feelings and simply enjoy this collection of cat pics.

We'll be honest, we're not so sure what's going on in this video but we love it. 

A woman is preparing dinner while her cat (we're assuming it's her cat), is supervising every step of the way. And we say supervising, we mean it. This cat is in every single shot, often on top of the woman preparing the food. 

We're fairly confident that the cat is in charge of the quality of each and every item, making sure it's all up to code and the cats' very high standards. 

Good job, cat! You'd make a fine head chef at any worthy establishment!
