Dear Dr. Schelling,

It seems like every evening when I come home from work I find something knocked off a shelf and broken on the floor. How can I keep my belongings safe from my cat while I'm out of the house?

Dear Lisa,

You're not alone. I've had this exact issue and I know plenty of other cat lovers who feel they have to hide their precious belongings in order to keep them safe. The easiest solution (and one that I personally use) is Museum Wax. This wax will hold all your valuables safe while your kitty is roaming around the house. Check out this article to learn more about how to protect your belongings from your cat.

I just got a cat who I love but I'm not sure how to play with her. I've always been a dog person and I don't know how well fetch will work out with a cat.

Dear Jamie,

Congratulations on getting a cat! Just an opinion, but I think we're way better than dogs. Okay, I'm getting off topic. Playing with your cat should be fun for her and you. We love interactive play, the more life like you make a toy the more we'll want to hunt it. Check out this article on how to play with your cat to help bring out the hunter in your kitty.

Both humans and cats have identical regions in the brain responsible for emotion.
Cats do care. For example they know instinctively what time we have to be at work in the morning and they wake us up 20 minutes before the alarm goes off. -Michael Nelson
