Marvel’s Goose: The Rising Cat Icon

Marvel’s Goose: The Rising Cat Icon

As you may have witnessed, this adorable kitty is not only cute and fluffy, but definitely a badass! First picked up by Fury in the former base where Carol Danvers used to work as a fighter jet pilot, Goose the cat is definitely an unforgettable character in the movie. While this movie indeed portrays girl power, Goose the cat doesn’t fail to show off its powers in the movie as well!

Don’t be fooled by its adorableness, Goose is actually a powerful alien specie called a Flerken – an entity with a pocket dimension inside their own bodies. Flerkens are also capable of effortlessly knocking enemies over with the tentacles in their mouth as well as effortlessly swallow the Tesseract and perhaps even some of the enemies as well. Like most kitties, the Flerken can also retract their claws and seriously injure people!

But in the comics, there’s a different appearance for the Goose in the movie. Goose was originally called Chewie in the comics, the name Goose was actually from the iconic movie Top Gun. It served as an inspiration for the creators since this movie is about jet fighters and awesome fight scenes!

In the comics, Chewie was Carol’s house cat that she adopted – only to discover that it was special when Rocket the racoon open fire on it making them hate each other. Chewie later on saved her species by laying hundreds of eggs later on! While they might appear clueless, Flerkens are actually as smart as humans in most decisions. Fury suffered the consequence as he was clawed in the face by the movie’s Flerken!

In the set of Captain Marvel, they have to hire three different cats to do various things in the movie. One is a great actor that is versatile, the other is a sweet tabby that does all the cuddles and petting scenes, and one is fiesty that does all the attack scenes – including Nick’s unfortunate encounter with Goose. Thanks to the talents of these adorable felines, they don’t have to do much CGI to make some of the scenes!

While you don’t have your own Goose, you can adopt your own adorable feline. They are nice to cuddle with, cute, and awesome! They will be your partner in crime and your best friend through thick and thin. They might love to jump on high places and scratch your furniture, they know when you’re sad and will comfort you until you get better. Get yourself an earth Goose and watch the upcoming film with them!

How to Keep Cats Still for Fur-tastic Photos!

How to Keep Cats Still for Fur-tastic Photos!

When you look at the dazzling world of celebrity internet cats, one does have to wonder how their owners actually manage to get theme in just the right pose. Is there a trick? Was the cat trained? Or maybe, just dumb luck?

The good news is that you neither need a lot of luck or a lot of stressful work to seize plenty of picture perfect moments with your kitty. It is all a matter of knowing what is most likely to get your cat’s attention and keeping them comfy and content as you snap away. Here are some ideas you can try.

1. Play around with treats and camera angles.

Sometimes, all it takes is to strap your cat’s favorite treat on top of the camera just to get their eyes on it. There are also other ways to do it though. It is all a matter of knowing how your cat looks at the things they desire the most at a particular time of day.

Asides from treats, you can also do the same thing with catnip or some of your cat’s favorite toys. It is also important to really give them time to enjoy those things first before taking pictures. That makes the little lures more effective when getting your cat to look in just the right direction!

2. Use catnip to spark interaction with objections.

When you see videos or pictures of cat’s poking their noses into something, there is a good chance that object actually has a hint of catnip on it. After all, cats can get really drawn to even its faintest scent and will always do all sorts of cute and quirky things with objects that have traces of it.

You don’t even need to open a whole bag. Try rubbing catnip on an object you want your cat to play around with and see all the adorable photo opportunities it can make!

3. Create chill backgrounds.

During lazy days when your cat just wants to lie around and sleep, you might think that these are just not the best time to disturb them by making them pose for picture.

But surprisingly, a lazing cat can make for one of the cutest photos to share with friends. The real trick is just making the background even more relaxed that it suits your cats. Try re-arranging pillows or stuffed toys around them.

It can also be a great opportunity to make your cat even more comfortable when they are resting. That’s two birds with one stone! (Just be sure to keep it quiet and avoid flashing photography.)

4. Take note of your cat’s habits.

Lastly, every cat has a set of unique habits and even entire routines. Paying real close attention to these is already a must for any cat owner. However, it is also a good way to identify good photo opportunities as well!

For example, does your cat always hop on the kitchen counter when you’re eating? Do they ask for your attention during a specific time of idea? What about the usual time when they start stretching on the cat post? If you’ve found an answer, then perhaps your own viral photo opportunity will show up just on schedule.

All in all, there is no need to worry about finding ways to hold your cat still or hope that Lady Luck will give you a chance to photograph it’s hilarious antics. You simply need to pay a bit more attention to their behaviour and understand the things your cat really likes. The photos are ultimately another reward for being an excellent cat owner!

What You Can Expect When You Live with a Cat

What You Can Expect When You Live with a Cat

Have you adopted a fur baby just now? Adopting a cat is an extraordinary experience – it becomes your confidante, your ‘practice baby’, and your best friend! It’s not only a moving experience for you, but for the cat as well. It’s as overjoyed as you to finally have a home to live in and a family that will love it.

Cats can be mysterious – they can either be playful or suddenly reclusive and hide under furniture from you. But they are not a puzzle that you need to solve, they can take a while to understand before you get to be close and personal with them. Don’t lose hope! They will soon be with you 24/7 and will always crave for your attention.

But first, what do you need to know when you live with a cat?

  • On the first days after the adoption, while your cat is grateful, they are territorial. A new home means new dangers for them and it makes them uneasy and paranoid. Since there are different furniture around the house, they will probably be too scared to approach it and make contact with it. That’s why some cats are always on edge when they’re somewhere new. For the first few days, dedicate a corner for your cat and fill it with feline amenities – litter box, water, food, and a soft cat blanket.
  • Place the litter box where the cat can do its business privately. No one wants to be disturbed when they’re doing their business, and it’s the same for your cats too. Make sure you fill up the litter box up to 2 inches and keep it clean as well.
  • Dedicate a space for eating and drinking for your cat and place it away from the litter box. Since cats can be messy – either on purpose or by accident – it pays to put a placemat underneath the bowls for easy clean up. Make sure the food you get for your cat is age appropriate and don’t make them drink cow’s milk! There’s a special formula for them to enjoy and get benefits from.
  • Cats love to hide, and they do this whenever they feel threatened. Make them a small cat house in the corner and pad it up with cushion to make it cozy. It can be made with boxes or you can buy one from the pet store. Position it to make it face the door in the room so it won’t get too startled.
  • Felines always have the desire to scratch on something to wear out their claws. Get your cat a scratching post so they won’t consider clawing your furniture and walls. There are different kinds of scratching gadgets that can help them wear out their claws for a bit – it can be directly installed on the floor, a post itself, and maybe get a cat tree. If they are too iffy to approach it, you can sprinkle some dried catnip on it to entice them to use the post.
  • Cats are explorers and hunters, so they like to pounce and hide around the house. If you have high display shelves and dangling display, expect them to climb on it and possibly break your displays! Since you really can’t make the cat stop doing this, it’s easier to keep these displays in cabinets and away from cat’s reach. It’s the same for holes – there are holes that cats would love to explore and it might injure them or destroy something in the house. Patch it up to make sure that they won’t explore the space between walls.
  • Cats are always on alert and nervous when they’re with new people. Don’t force them to interact with new people at once since they will get defensive and might claw your guest or even you! Give them time and space and soon enough – with enough respected interaction – they will approach you or them instead.
