Do cats love baseball? They must. These 5 videos show cats walking onto baseball diamonds trying to be part of the action. On second thought -- maybe cats are just natural comedians, because these baseball episodes get a lot of laughs.
OK, so kittens don't belong on baseball fields, but that didn't stop these plucky felines.

Spend so much as a day with a cat, and you'll know cats have many types of meow. Have you also noticed they have different purrs? Angie Bailey, creator of Texts From Mittens, outlines the 5 distinct purrs of her cats. Let's listen in ...
"Fast and furious," "barely there," and "drooly" are among the ways my cats tell me they love me.

Adopting a kitten can be the right thing to do, but it can leave an adult cat feeling overlooked or "obsolete." Here are tips on how to keep your adult cat happy after you've adopted a kitten. What tips do you have for making your first cat not feel like an extra?

"I'm just not a cat person." How many times have you heard that? But conversions do happen. We hear from a woman whose brother was "not a cat person" -- until he met the right cat who needed a home. Have you witnessed a cat-person conversion? Maybe it happened to you?

Is your cat uncharacteristically peeing outside the litter box? It might be related to feline lower urinary tract disease, which means a vet visit is urgent. Here's what you need to know about symptoms and how to tell whether your cat is suffering from this disorder.

It might start when a cat causes a small amount of damage, but it might end with a gigantic household project. We hear from a woman whose cats began scratching the wallpaper, and before long it became a kitchen renovation. Have your cats forced your hand on a renovation job?
My problems began when my kitties clawed my wallpaper; we ended up with a kitchen overhaul.

Be careful what you say about your cats in mixed company. Because language is funny, cats are funny, and sometimes those overlap. Yes, we're talking about double entendre. Here are 5 phrases that sound naughty -- but are really about cats.
Choose your words carefully when talking about your pussy -- certain people could get the wrong idea.

Lots of pet owners talk about the unconditional love of cats. But is a cat's love really unconditional? Shouldn't interspecies relationships have conditions and boundaries just like human-to-human bonds? For example, does an abuser deserve the love of a cat? And would that person get it?
I've loved many cats and they've loved me, but these bonds do -- and should -- have conditions.

Feline's have conditions which I rather call body language, and communication techniques. But they are reasonable, for the cat's needs. If we do not "Bond" with our cat(s), how do we expect to understand what a sudden 'claws out swipe to our hand' means when we may be petting our cat? It usually starts as a swishing of the tail, or the end of the tail 'twitching', but we aren't noticing. Cats are independent, but they love bonding too. They may be sunning, bathing or napping, we come home from our day's activities; we go to say, "Hello Kitty..." not realizing we may be over stimulating by  scratching or petting to much in a spot the cat doesn't want to be touched at that moment. Maybe our voice is too excitable? I suggest someday soon, you journal the entire day of your kitties activities: Time, the linking activities; napping/waking, eating/playing/bathing, place; favorite window, etc., asking for attention; lap/petting/toy, like that. Then look over the journal asap, and you'll probably notice a routine. Then learn when your friend is receptive to your approaches of petting, picking up to love or playing with a toy.

Turkey has a lot of stray and feral cats who are sick or injured. But during a visit there, this writer encountered cats at every turn who were friendly and playful. They became her unofficial tour guides. See the remarkable photos and read about her journey.
I know Turkey has a problem with homeless pets, but the cats I met were like unofficial tour guides.

Self-portaits taken with smartphone cameras -- or selfies -- are pretty popular. But some people believe that black cats are being given up to shelters more these days because they don't show up well in selfies. Here are photo tips on how to make your black cat photograph better.
A UK agency believes it's happening, so I offer tips on how to better photograph your black cat.

How much do you feed a young cat? How often? What kind of food? How about an older cat? Or a kitten? This Ask a Vet column tells you what you need to know about how much food your cat needs to be healthy.
The answer to this common health question is incredibly simple as well as incredibly complex.

Poor Mittens. The cat with an unlimited data plan gets stuck in a leg of Mom's shorts. Drunk Patty is no help -- she wants to use his cat carrier to give a squirrel a ride to a casino. See the latest edition of Texts From Mittens.
Mittens gets stuck in a pant leg, Drunk Patty wants a feral squirrel to ride in the cat carrier, and Mittens is falsely accused of theft! He texts!
