Хочу обратить ваше внимание на несколько важных, но малоизвестных маркеров в поведении кота, которые могут указывать на проблемы и немного поговорить о том, какие условия должны быть у счастливого и здорового кота, а так же о последствиях стресса для кошачьих.

1. Махание хвостом - всем известно, что кошки, в отличие от собак, машут хвостом в двух случаях: когда охотятся и когда недовольны. Нередко владельцы котов могут столкнуться с двояким поведением - кот машет хвостом, но при этом мурчит, чаще при контакте с человеком.
Это сигнализирует нам о том, что кот не рад контакту, а скорее терпит его. Мурчание в данном случае может быть способом самоуспокоения для кота - не только на людей этот звук действует умиротворяюще.

1. Both predators and prey animals use camouflage to their advantage.

Prey animals blend in with the background, so hungry predators pass right by them.

🧵 Start of a thread with some amazing videos on #Camouflage.

I like this one. 🙂

2. But predators use camouflage too.

The striated frogfish (Antennarius striatus) walks the seafloor right up to its unsuspecting prey.

It has a prognathous mouth that launches an attack on prey in as fast as 6 milliseconds.

For the return of the #UNMBioblog after our year hiatus, I chose to write about the negative consequences for cats, humans, and #wildlife when we allow #cats to roam freely. I couldn't help myself with the punny title.…
I was inspired to write this blog after I witnessed my neighbor's outdoor pet #cat killed a #bird under my feeder. A heated argument ensued. I know nothing has changed because I still scare him out of my backyard. I've counted 9 different cats in my backyard, here is one
I am a paradoxical #catlover, which stems from my #science & #ornithology career. I know how cute it is for my own #cat to frolic in flowers but I understand how dangerous it is for #cats, human #health, & #wildlife when cats roam #CatsOfTwitter #Caturday #catsofinstagram

If you are at #RSS2021Conf this morning, check out our invited session on Contagious disease #statistics and #misinterpretation of #COVID dynamics and data with @AdamJKucharski and @AyisSalma
11:40am, Exchange 10
First speaker is @AyisSalma, reflecting on the subtle but important difference of what we think and what data are.
#COVID19 statistics are easily misinterpreted Image
Statistical anomalies in calculations of #COVID19 infections and deaths meant it appeared that no-one ever recovered!
And these figures influenced government #publichealth decisions Image

Cute Cat Images With Quotes For Crazy Cat Ladies, Gentlemen And Lovers #cats #cutecats #crazycatladies
I am more of a cat person than a dog, but that doesn’t mean I hate dogs. I prefer cats over dogs, that’s all. However, I really dislike cat hating dog people. For some unknown reason, I’ve met too many dog people condemning cats out of the blue, such as they are useless etc.
I never understood the reason why they have the urge to bad mouth cats while I pet their dog.… Over the years, I’ve realized that the saying, “You are what you eat.” is true. You are more likely to be a cat person if you prefer indoors,

Outrageous, my belly is naked! Shaved! My new V-E-T is unbelievably rude as you see. But mum says I should stop moaning: No FIP! 🎉 We don't know what else it is, though. ~Gina (Thread: 1/8)
#SuperSeniorCatsClub #Hedgewatch #cats #CatsOfTwitter
Today the V-E-T on wheels came home (great concept, no terrible car rides). She looked at my results and listened to my hooms. She was certain: no FIP. The results didn't show it and my symptoms didn't match. Ultrasound said: no fluids in my belly (like 1st V-E-T said). (2/8)
But I do have symptoms. Today I had a fever, I may have a too big appetite and when they touched my bum I really didn't like it. They also said my fur is scruffy (so rude!!! 😾). So something is going on with me. (3/8)

THREAD - What happened at the Huanan #seafood market?

The @WHO report is quite clear on this point: #SARSCoV2 might have jumped from a wild animal sold in this market and maybe other markets in #Wuhan. But what do we know exactly? 1/15

#originsofSARSCoV2 Image
After all this time, the Huanan seafood market still remains the main suspect for a simple reason: most of the early cases had visited at least one market in Wuhan city, and several of them visited the Huanan market. 2/15 Image
According to the report, 10,000 people visited this place every day, making it a perfect setting for an #outbreak. One might argue: what about the cases without market exposure? Good question! 3/15

@GMB great to see the interview with @marcthevet this morning and would be grateful if you would also highlight the #Petition to make #PetTheft a Specific Law, as there is a consequence of #PetTheft that also impacts on the #IllegalPuppyTrade in the U.K. as many of the 1/2
2/2 #Dogs and #Cats are stolen and then used by illegal breeders and these #puppies are often ill as the conditions that the stolen #mothers and #fathers are kept in are appalling then when they can no longer be bred from they are dumped… @Dr_Dan_1

Sometimes the goofiest pictures make for the best ones in my eyes.

I have this thing against making photos that seem to fit a template. Cat portraits and portraits in general often have this failing. I must confess...
...that maybe up to half the photos I take of my cats fit the standard portrait template for animals where the subject's complete face is looking straight at you from a very close distance. Some days in some cat groups... can look like a high school yearbook taken by a single professional photographer. I know my stuff is often sloppy and I like it that way. My cats are distinctive, worth breaking some rules for. John Ruskin would have...

I took several photos of the cats using a timer and a camera placed on the floor. I was pleased with the results overall, the long vanishing points, the interesting postures, etc. My main tool for wrangling them was a laser pointer proving that you can herd cats.

Hey, #cats Twitter. CW: pet illness & loss

A small PSA from me that might help someone else. If you have a cat under a year old, and they are runty, walk wobbly, have a strong cycle of hyperactivity and lethargy, and/or drool a lot, ask your vet about portosystemic shunt. 1/ Photo of small black cat wi...
CW: pet illness & loss

We knew our Pixie baby was a spoony cat. We knew she had chronic health problems and would likely have a shorter life than the rest of her litter. We didn't know how short.

The explanation we were given for her symptoms was cerebellar hyperplasia. 2/
CW: pet illness & loss

She still may have as well. There are some overlapping symptoms. But it never explained everything. I took her to the vet. I looked up as much as I could. I never found the information I needed until it was too late. She threw up and got really weak. 3/
