(Cat) Mysteries Solved!

Felines have a reputation for being cagey… but Catster has ’em figured out. Subscribe now and let our experts take the guesswork out of cat ownership.

If cats had their own set of Commandments, the first three might go something like this:

√ Thou shalt remain mysterious at all times.
√ Thou shalt not be predictable.
√ Thou shalt not reveal to thy human any hint of a health problem.

Any arguments? Cats, after all, are known for being mysterious. For keeping us guessing. For masking symptoms of illness.

Luckily, we two-legged types have ways of figuring out our felines. But It’s easier said than done. Cat owners need a helping hand. And you won’t find a more knowledgeable and insightful source of help than Catster. Subscribe now by clicking on the button below!


In every issue, Catster offers an entertaining column that clears up confusion over common cat quirks and tendencies. In recent issues, we demystified the reason that cats:

  • Sleep so much (around 16 hours a day)
  • Bury their waste
  • Squeeze into tight spaces
  • Vocalize
  • Prefer high places
  • Destroy holiday décor

Our author’s science-backed explanations are guaranteed to make you smile!


Our issues are packed with information—science-backed content that gets to the bottom of feline mysteries, kitty whims, and cat quirks.

  • You know your cat is skittish around people. But are you aware of the possible causes—and how to bring out the “friendly” in your feline? (A clue for you: Behavior modification can actually ease a cat’s anxiety, experts say. But first, simply make life fun again for your cat using playtime and building or rebuilding trust.)
  • You might think your cat has come down with a fever. But how do you know, and what can you do about it? (Hint: For starters, know that a cat’s temperature runs higher than a human’s—“normal” for a feline ranges from 100 to 102 degrees Fahrenheit.)
  • You know it’s a good idea to change up your cat’s diet because he’s been vomiting. But what’s the safest way to do it? (Tip: Gradual is better. Many veterinarians support the 3-3-3 rule. The first three days, give your cat 2/3 of his current food mixed with 1/3 of his new food. The next three days, switch the percentage: 1/3 of his current food and 2/3 of the new food. Within seven to 10 days, the transition should be complete.)


Cats are what we call “obligate carnivores,” meaning they must eat meat to survive. So don’t be upset if your cat rejects whole foods such as steamed green beans or kale. He’s not a vegan, per nature’s order!

The digestive tracts of herbivores and omnivores are vastly different from that of the carnivore and able to adapt to a host of dietary options, but for the true carnivore, this simply isn’t the case. Obligate carnivores—also known as “true carnivores”—are literally just that. Animals that, because of their genetic conditioning, must eat a flesh-based diet to thrive.

No one knows your cat better than you do—right? You know the food he likes, when he wants to eat, where he likes to curl up for a long nap….

Yet you likely encounter regular cat mysteries. What’s with the fearful look you sometimes see in her eyes? What makes her scowl and spit? Does human anxiety make a cat become skittish?

Let Catster’s experts help you interpret your cat’s messaging and analyze her actions. For example, have you ever seen your cat suddenly become fixated on his tail—swishing it, chasing it, obsessively grooming it? It could be feline hyperesthesia syndrome, a condition that manifests itself in a variety of other symptoms, like twitching or rippling skin or odd vocalizing.

When you subscribe to Catster, you’ll become more educated in what makes cats tick, how they can fool us, and what you can expect in the various feline life stages. How much exercise should cats get? What should you feed a senior cat? Which vaccinations are important… and which can you skip?
