How to Rub a Cat's Belly Without Being AttackedWhen you meet a cat, you might find yourself with an overwhelming urge to pet its soft, furry tummy. If you know anything at all about cats, you'll stop yourself before trying, because it could lead to disaster. Rubbing a cat's belly is the Holy Grail of human-cat interaction, because not only is it soft, warm, and furry, but being allowed to do it is a sure sign that the cat likes you. In real life, it's much more likely that a cat who presents it tummy to you is daring you, or even baiting you, into a situation where they can cause real damage to your arm. Dr. Uri Burstyn, the Helpful Vancouver Vet, explains why a cat is so protective of its underside, and how you can get a cat to trust you enough to pet its belly. He makes it look easy, but you have to remember he is a cat whisperer and an expert. Your mileage may vary. You can skip the first three minutes of the video to get to the subject matter at hand. You may recall Dr. Burstyn as the vet who popularized the phrase "Squish that cat."​#cat #petting #veterinarian

Kitten with No Eyes Finds the Purr-fect Home​Whitby Wildlife Sanctuary in Yorkshire, UK, normally takes in injured foxes, badgers, squirrels, and birds, but they occasionally serve feral cats and dogs who need help. They were brought a kitten that had been found with his feral mother and siblings. The kitten couldn't see due to infected eyes. Veterinarians worked to remove one badly-damaged eye and save the other, but ultimately neither eye could be saved. During the surgery, the kitten received plasma from a dog named Bruno, and so he came to be named Bruno as well.With the infected eyes removed, Bruno was no longer in pain, but it would be very difficult to find a home for him. As Bruno recovered from surgery and showed his winning personality, one of the veterinary surgeons who cared for him decided to adopt him. Now Bruno is an indoor cat and is adapting well to his forever home. -via Fark ​(Image credit: Whitby Wildlife Sanctuary) #cat #blind #veterinarian
