The Pets Hotel News !

 

Jasmine and Jasper wedding !

front small
The Pets Hotel was extremely proud to support this lovely fundraising event that was ‘Jasper and Jasmine Rowe’s wedding’. We supplying a voucher for their silent auction and also supplying much needed poop bags for the event; we were one of the MANY who helped raise money for such a great cause!
A big thank-you to Jasper and Jasmine for bringing such awareness to the needs of not only pugs but all recues animals. Thanks to their Mum and Dad for working tirelessly and endlessly to make this dream a reality.


A HUGE thank-you to Pug Rescue Victoria for their efforts and constant support to these guys, as pugs generally have a few issues with their health that are also VERY costly to fix. This is such an important organisation to support to ensure all those little guys are happy and healthy as can be.


The event went off! Everyone in Melbourne knew about this famous couples wedding and only the most important of guests attended. Not only did this event do wonders for pugs and pug rescues, but also gave a lift to Melbourne as a city. It lifted everyone’s spirits to see such fun and it was really great how everyone got involved and helped out!

CAT BEHAVIOUR EXPLAINED PART 2

Last month we talked about cats behaviour in regards to ‘peeing on personal belongings’ (which I have personally had to deal with eww) as well as ‘rubbing’. This month we go into what cats mean when they start scratching, meowing, kneading and swishing their tails around.


‘Scratching

Cats need to scratch surfaces to sharpen their claws but they also use this behaviour to deposit their scent. Cats have scent glands on their paws and rubbing their paws along objects places their scent there.
If your cat has the annoying habit of scratching furniture, it is often because this is an area that attracts many different scents. The sides of sofas, for example, are favoured areas and these may have the scents of outdoors, our guests, our bags or shoes. In performing the scratching behaviour, your cat replaces the foreign scent with their own.
If scratching is a problem, then scratching posts are a must. Place these in areas that cats like to scratch and then gradually move them towards your preferred location. There is no use hiding scratching posts in corners, as cats need to scratch in prominent areas. They also often like to scratch at different angles so provide horizontal and vertical scratching surfaces.


Meowing

Cats meow to communicate with humans. This endearing method of speech is heard in young kittens, to get their mother's attention but is rarely heard between cats. So when your cat meows to you, it is a special form of cat-to-human conversation.
You can encourage your cat's meow by responding to it. Alternatively, if your cat talks too much, you should ignore the meows and respond when they are quiet.


Kneading

Cats kneed prior to relaxing. This involves pacing with their paws, on top of a soft object - usually a bed, a blanket or our lap. Some cats will purr or even drool at the same time. Kneading is often a pleasant behaviour - until the claws come out.
Kneading first begins when kittens are suckling milk from their mother, the padding behaviour stimulating milk release. Cats carry on with this behaviour, perhaps to recreate pleasant feelings, to create a comfortable spot or to place their scent on the underlying object.
If you enjoy your cat on your lap but can't stand the claws, keep their claws trimmed and place a thick blanket between you and your cat.


Swishy Tail

Cats communicate to other cats and to humans using feline body language. The tail is an important part of this communication.
A swishy tail signals high arousal, often due to anger or play. The swishing tail is a warning – of impending attack. If your cat holds their body low and the tail begins swishing, look out. They are probably about to pounce. Direct their energy onto appropriate toys and enjoy.’
