Why Does My Cat… Always Like to Curl Up in Small Places?

This propensity among domestic cats is most likely an instinctive behavior that is hardwired in their brains. We often think of our cats as accomplished predators of small prey, like birds and mice, but it’s important to realize that they themselves are often prey to larger predators, such as coyotes, foxes, eagles, hawks, owls, etc. As such, a cat who is curled up is protecting the softer, more vulnerable part of his body — the abdomen. There are a lot of vital organs in the abdomen, and an injury in that area can be detrimental and even fatal to the cat.

The Saddest Cat In The World Has 24 Hours To Live, Then He’s Scooped Up By An Angel [fusion_dropcap boxed="no" boxed_radius="" class="" id="" color="#e8004d"]I[/fusion_dropcap]t’s a sad fact that even when it comes to animals, people can be shallow and base everything on looks. And it’s even worse when those looks come from a disability or injury. That was exactly what an orange tabby cat named BenBen faced when he was brought to a shelter in British Columbia. He appeared to have been attacked by a larger animal at some point, and was missing a good deal of skin on his face, as well as part of his left ear, but no one’s exactly sure what happened to him.  As a result from the scarring, he was left with a droopy face that looked like permanent sadness. And at this point, BenBen had a lot
