The biggest and perhaps most fearsome of the world's big cats, the tiger shares 95.6 percent of its DNA with humans' cute and furry companions, domestic cats.
Let’s STOP, THINK and COMPARE the natural instincts the wild Tigers have living in their natural habitats to our domesticated tiger in our Cats who live in our homes today. Our house Cats are a smaller version with the same instincts, house Cats make do with what is given to them by us to stimulate and emulate their ancestors. They both have the same natural instincts, they just come in a smaller compact package. They really aren’t all that different if we look to see what it is they need and must have to survive in an already existing environment we call our family home. We must allow our little house Tigers to experience the same needs their ancestors instinctually have displayed in the wild to exist for years. Tigers in the wild will choose necessary things to scratch, eat, sleep and eliminate, allowing them the freedom to be a Tiger. We must let our little house Tiger be just that a Tiger in a smaller package. A Tiger in a Cat suit. Only NOW, we know what it is they need to make them happy. A happy Cat is a well adjusted Cat who will become a great companion. We must let our house Cats be exactly what they are a CAT. They must Climb, hunt, hide and ambush things. These behaviors are normally conceived as a Cat misbehaving, nothing could be further from the truth. They are simply displaying their “catness" behaviors. We need to nurture them and provide the things they need to be exactly who and what they are CATS! Learn to adore your cats individual personality, let them be who they meant to be.
