My cat wasn’t impressed by the fireworks at all, she slept through the whole ordeal.
The cats below need a long sleep after all those New Year festivities though!

Have a great New Year!
Keeping a close eye on the health of your cat is important. Cats do experience pain similarly to humans. Just like humans they can be affected by infectious diseases. By monitoring your cat’s health daily you will be able to prevent more serious health issues at a later time. Visiting the veterinarian at least once a year is strongly advised. You really shouldn’t delay informing your vet if you notice any peculiar behaviour from your cat.
Stress is just as bad for your cat as it is for you. Make sure your cat gets plenty of rest. You might think that cats have no problem relaxing, and in general you’d be right. However stressful households DO have a negative effect on their health. If you can’t provide a stable, at times quiet, place for your cat to grow old in, then perhaps you should reconsider getting a cat if you haven’t already.
Cats can not eat all human foods. Some foods are actually a danger to their well-being. Obesity is a major issue in the world of humans, are we feeding our cats properly? Over-feeding is quite common. A big well-fed cat might look cute, but in the long term health problems can develop such as diabetes, and arthritis. Cats’ behaviour has changed over the years. They were once kept mostly to hunt for mice in barns, hence got much more exercise. Nowadays their lives are much more sedentary – so their diet needs to adjust as well.
Feed your cat plenty of liquid! Giving your cat too much dry food will cause dehydration, and might end in urinary-tract problems. A diet rich in liquids is a must. Cats get most of their water from the food we provide them with. Other than feeding your cat a mouse every day, which consist of about 70% water, canned foods will do the job just as well. Besides canned food as a source of water, additionally there should be plenty of fresh water available to your cat.
Please note that cats are carnivores, they prefer meat – they were designed to function mainly on meat. Trying to turn your cat into a vegetarian is not advisable.
If you have any concerns about your cat’s health, consult your veterinarian. Many health problems can be prevented if timely action is taken.

There have been quite a few people asking whether cats can dance. The questions they posted online do get some interesting replies. But no, cats can’t actually dance – not the way humans dance.
Have a nice weekend!
If you’re looking for a cat that hasn’t lost its wild looks, then perhaps you should
take a look at the Bengal cat. They still look like badasses. And unlike many other cat breeds, the Bengal doesn’t mind taking a swim if it feels like it. In general, the Bengal cat is an energetic creature with a healthy dose of curiosity.

You can see how related the Bengal cat is to its ancestor, the Asian leopard cat. Some people describe the Bengal as a miniature leopard, and they have a point.

The Bengal is actually a hybrid of a domestic cat and a leopard cat. It took quite a few generations before the Bengal cat was properly domesticated. At that point it has lost a large part of its wild temperament, and made it suitable as a pet.
