The domestic cat (Felis silvestris catus or Felis catus) is a small, typically furry, carnivorous mammal. They are often called house cats when kept as indoor pets or simply cats when there is no need to distinguish them from other felids and felines. They are often valued by humans for companionship and for their ability to hunt vermin. There are more than seventy cat breeds recognized by various cat registries.

Litter Thinker

Seriously, my cat was napping in his litter box recently. I think it was his way of saying he didn't like where we put it.

The domesticated house cat, otherwise known as the devil.

This is a picture of a domesticated house cat. She is my domesticated house cat and otherwise described by people as the devil. Her name is Lunar but I call her by either Princess or Demon Cat. I swear that she is actually a spawn of Satan. After this picture was taken she tried to run up my leg and cause me to bleed to death. I believe that she is the devil himself, and that all other cats are in a secret gang of demons. As I'm typing this she is glaring at me, which is a sign that I need to go. Send help, SOS.

My Cat Kiara

Did you that almost all calico and tortoise shell cats are female? My tortoise shell, Kiara, is named after Simba's daughter in The Lion King II Simba's Pride.
