Why does a cat have a mustache?

What is the name of a mustache for cats and what are they?
The mustache in cats grows not only under the nose, but also on the forehead, near the eyes, on the chin and even on the paws. More precisely, it is correct to call them not “mustache”, but “vibrissa”. These are sensitive, hard hairs that are longer than the coat. There are about 40 pieces of such hairs on the cat’s body, and only 24 of them are on the face.

Unlike simple hair, vibrissae are surrounded by hundreds of nerve endings and muscle fibers, and their root goes deep into the tissue.

Each vibrissa is a separate organ of touch, which 24 hours a day uninterruptedly transmits a signal to the animal’s brain. Vibrissas are present not only in cats, but also in many other mammals, including dogs. Continue reading

Ferret and cat under one roof.

Domestic ferret and cat
Cats and ferrets have a lot in common. They are ideal for home maintenance: they are compact, do not require long walks, are very affectionate, active and just love to play.

For many owners, such a duet becomes a real salvation: hyperactive pets themselves entertain each other, which is very useful after a long day’s work. But there is another side. Both ferrets and cats are predators by nature, and not just predators, but competitors. In the wild, they lead a similar lifestyle, prey on birds and rodents. And also those and others have a difficult character, are demanding and, as a rule, do not give offense.

The cohabitation of ferrets and cats under one roof develops according to two opposite scenarios: they either become best friends or ignore each other, entering into conflict in the slightest case. Continue reading

What vaccinations do kittens need?

In the first weeks of a kitten’s life, a cat-mother takes care of his immunity. But after weaning from his mother, his natural defense weakens and needs additional support. What does the owner need to do to provide the pet with this protection in a timely manner?

Why vaccinate a kitten?
Mother’s milk (Colostrum), secreted in the first days of a baby’s life, contains a large number of antibodies. Thanks to this, the kitten receives primary immunity from the cat. In the future, the level of antibodies in milk gradually decreases, but remains sufficient to maintain health and prevent infections.

Naturally, a small kitten only weaned from its mother is not enough to have its own antibodies. To protect the kitten from common infectious diseases, vaccinations (vaccinations) are also carried out – preventive measures to form the kittens’ own active immunity. Continue reading
