Why does my cat jump at my feet?

Cats are quirky, sometimes complicated creatures that capture the hearts of so many pet parents.

Why is my cat acting weird all the time?

Why does my cat Swat at my feet?

Typically, your feline friend swats at your feet because they want food or a snuggle session, or perhaps are acting out aggression. But more often than not, they do it because they want to play.

Why are the pads of my cat’s feet pink?

The pads of your cat’s feet should be pink (unless your kitty’s pads are black genetically).

If your cat IS declawed, check that there is no regrowth of the claws.
