A cat by the name of Jacque has been lost for the past two years only to be found by a vet that lives 1,100 miles away from its home. Cree Cantrell, the owner of the lost cat, thought that he would never see his beloved cat again since the day it ran away from their Biloxi, Missouri home.
The cat was found by a veterinarian in Denver, Colorado, which is approximately 1,100 miles away from the feline’s original home. The cat’s owner was identified after its microchip was scanned. This would then lead to the inevitable reunion of the cat and its worried owner.

What happens if you put a kitten that needs a nap and a hyperactive parakeet in the same room? You get the same scenario as annoying friend who will not leave you alone when you are trying to sleep.
The good thing about the kitten in the video is that it is absolutely patient to its parakeet friend. The bird just keeps chirping and lightly pecking on the cat’s fur just to ruin the feline’s cat nap.
It’s either the cat does not mind that the parakeet is quite the annoying bird to ruin its nap, or it’s thinking about its next meal.

Many cats are essentially a part of the family and could not stand for their owners to be away from their side. Cheryl Locke reports that she had consulted with Oscar E. Chavez, DVM, MBA for some ways to keep her cat, named Penny, from being sad and lonely while she is at work.
Dr. Chavez suggests that spraying the cat with Feliway pheromone spray will keep the cat calm. The doctor and member of the American Academy of Veterinary Nutrition says that closing all windows and drapes will let the cat feel less anxious. It is also a good idea for cats to have their own “hiding place” should they feel restless or anxious.
Cats can also get bored; to fight that, the doctor recommends cat trees with multiple levels and various perching sites to keep them occupied among other toys and trinkets for these feline companions. Lastly, it is a good idea to place fountains of running water for the cat to avoid dehydration.

New research shows that most cats do not like to be petted or stroked. Professor Daniel Mills, one of the researchers, states that it makes them feel anxious or stressed.
Those that are living with other felines tend to tolerate affectionate actions more compared to some that are living alone. A solution to this problem is not to impose one’s self towards their pet. Providing a place where the cat can be alone is also a great way to give space.
Felines may display a variety of body language that cat owners need to take note of. When a cat approaches an individual with its tail pointed up it means that they are greeting the person. On the other hand, flat ears and back is a sign that the feline is stressed out.
Soldiers who are deployed in various areas around the world cope with their situation in many different ways. For Alan, a British soldier, spending time with rescue animals helped him get through those tough times, as mentioned in an article on Love Meow.
The man came across a feral feline during one of his trips and decided to keep it. His other pet, a dog, grew fond of the cat as well. The trio was inseparable. Unfortunately, the canine left, leaving the feline sad and lonely.
It wasn’t long until Alan found a replacement, another stray cat named Howard. Through the help of Nowzad, an organization that specializes in rescue felines that are located in Afghanistan, the cat is receiving care. The solider intends to bring the feline back to the UK when he goes home.
