Top 5 YouTube Cats


Happy November, dear readers! As a change of pace from our usual Epistles from the Emperor, Julius and I are counting down our top 5 favorite cat YouTubers for this month’s article. It probably comes as no surprise that one of our favorite–or at least, my favorite–pastimes is watching cat videos on YouTube. (I don’t know if Julius appreciates videos of other cats, but he does like videos of mice.) Over years of cat video-curating, I have come across a number of online cat personalities that have purred their way into my favorites list. Here’s my top 5 cats I … Continue reading Top 5 YouTube Cats

Limber


Cats tend to be limber. We can stretch in ways which astound any human we live with. It makes my girl remark how well we can do yoga without being taught.

The best any cat can do is to appear their cutest to attract a human caretaker. I wish we could have had featured charities such … Continue reading Living in a Shelter

Head Butts


When a cat approaches a human and head butts the human, it’s a form of affection. It’s a way for the cat to tell the human how they feel. It is just one of the many things a cat will do to a human to tell the human the cat loves them. It’s not a form of abuse. Cats tend to play rough each other and their favorite humans. Cats tend to treat their favorite humans as honorary cats. That’s why cats give their favorite humans head butts. Continue reading Head Butts
