Top 10 Valentines Day Cats With fur Hearts

Who remembers a song by The Cure called Love Cats? No-one? Well maybe it was too long ago, but maybe you should play it on youtube in the background because this post might not be inspired by the song, but it will fit in with it rather nicely. You see, much like us humans get birthmarks, cats get four marks! And this post is dedicated to a particular shape of fur mark that only very special Valentines Day cats have…

FACT: Along with having a shiny, soft coat after brushing, the grooming process provides an additional value by stimulating the underlying vessels that can help promote new fur growth.

7 – “It takes two, baby, it takes two, baby – To make a dream come true, just take two!”

FACT: Matted and tangled fur can be uncomfortable for your cat because as the clumps tighten, they pull on the skin.

5 – “Just because I am ginger, doesn’t mean I don’t have a heart!”

FACT: The combing and brushing of fur provides stimulus to their skin and blood vessels and promotes a shiny coat and it is also easier to see any hot spots on your cat such as flea eggs or ticks.

4 – “Kitten hearts are fun-loving hearts!”

FACT: Let your cat investigate the brush so it’s not perceived as a scary object and then slowly begin to brush around the cat’s ears, back of the neck and under the neck. Gradually and slowly begin moving the brush over the back and sides to let it become accustomed to the feel of the brush and to let you gauge any resistance she may have.

FACT: Cats love to preen themselves and can spend extraordinary amounts of time licking and washing and just when you think they’ve finished, they’ll start the whole process all over again.

  1. I love the “Love Cats” video from the cure. And I love my own kitty as well. This post certainly made me smile.

  2. What a great post! I loved every one of them but, of course, kittens are always the cutest. Makes me want to run right out and adopt another baby, but I don’t want to make the six I already have (Mamasan, Monkey, Stretch, Squeek, Elf, and Manly) to feel neglected.

  3. I don’t know… it would be interesting to see what the parents look like. We never noticed our cat’s pattern when we first got her and I just recently noticed the pattern on her legs from the way she was standing. One day she will stand still long enough and I can snap a photo and then I will post it 😉 .

  4. I remember that song… it was the first time I came across the Cure.
    We have a cat that has a circle on each side.., like a ring. Her front paws together look like lips. She is still a kitten so trying to snap a photo of these fur patterns result in a blurr!

  5. Thank you Lee, it is still great to hear I can keep you amused even after all these silly Caturday posts, I guess when they are no longer amusing I should hang up the towel.

  6. My favorite day – Caturday. This is so cool, especially the two kittens together who make a heart. #1 has such great coloring and the heart is amazing. Caturday Top 10’s are the hardest to choose a favorite – I love cats and they all are wonderful.

  7. Even my 11 year old niece nows the song, though with me as an auntie she doesn’t have much choice. This has got to be my favourite post so far. Love cats. Love. The Cure.

  8. These are all so cute. Of course, you made me go and inspect my kitties for any furmarks! The closest I found was a sort of spade (think cards) instead of a heart on the back of one of my ginger cats! LOL!

  9. *LOL* Chasing bugs is great run when you are a cat it seems, I just run the other way! And having watched Tom Hardy’s Poaching Wars myself I know what you mean. It is a cruel hard world out there.

  10. I’m very tired at just cried watching Tom Hardy’s Poaching Wars and this has cheered me right up. Thanks! I want to hug my cat now, but she’s too busy chasing bugs!

    I love your blog by the way. xxx

  11. I love Caturdays and today is no exception. They are wonderful and very beautiful, all of them.
    I brush my cats too, and they love it so much.
    Thanks for sharing.

  12. My cats love it when I brush them. It’s amazing how loud the purring becomes. I even hold the brush upside down in front of them so they can rub their chins on it. They love that. 🙂
