C. Fields Cats do not need to be shown how to have a good time, for they are unfailingly ingenious in that respect. —James Mason To demonstrate the truth of that quotation, here are just a few easily obtainable items that make excellent toys for cats. • Paper (not plastic) bags without handles are great for pouncing on and hiding in. • Catnip stuffed and sewn into an old sock will make most cats delirious with happiness. • Plastic shower-curtain rings are fun either on their own, linked to others, or tied to a piece of string and hung in an inviting spot.

If a white cat comes to your house it will bring with it good luck, provided that it stays. The average cat has a total of twenty-four whiskers, arranged in four rows of three whiskers on either side of the face. The upper rows can move independently of the bottom rows. Whiskers are more than twice as thick as ordinary hairs, and their roots are set three times as deep–they are closely connected to the nervous system. They are full of nerve endings which provide the cat with detailed information about air movement and pressure, as well as feedback on its surroundings.

One way of keeping your cat safe is to clear up any clippings or uprooted plants, as bulbs are often particularly hazardous. Even pollen can be dangerous: in England in 2005, a cat died after brushing against lilies in flower and getting pollen on its fur; when it licked itself clean it ingested the toxins in the pollen, which killed it.
