Kelly about her sweet cat Sammy

It was love at first sight when cat-mama Kelly picked up her Sammy from the breeder. Since then, they are inseparable. They love to sleep, cuddle and play together. And what does Sammy do in the bathroom every morning?

We heard you’re still studying? You must be busy then?

My study indeed requires a lot of time and attention. But I have enough time for my Sammy. When I come home from school or work, he is always waiting for me and then he gets all the attention he deserves. Often he has been sleeping and he comes to say hello to me with his sweet, dull sleeping head. I pick him up and give him a big hug and lots of kisses. That makes us both so happy!

Where did you meet Sammy?

I grew up with cats at home and I love them. So I always knew that when I left home I would get a cat. That happened about a year ago – I now live on my own in a flat in Zwolle and thought it was high time for more cosiness in the house. As my father had bought a very nice cat from a breeder the year before, I went there too. And there I saw him – my best friend Sammy. 

You bought your cat from a breeder. Is Sammy a pedigree cat?

Sammy is a cross between a longhair Birts and a Persian. In other words: a sweet and wonderfully soft fluffy ball. I think his name really suits him. When I saw him, I knew immediately: This is a real Sammy! I like names with a ‘y’ at the end anyway. His name also fits well with mine. Kelly and Sammy, that sounds like a lot of fun! 

Tell us about Sammy. What is his character and what does he like?

Sammy is really incredibly sweet. He loves food, is a real cuddler and very social. When I am at home, he is with me all the time. At night too, he sleeps in my bed. That is one of my favourite moments with him. And he thinks the same – Sammy loves to sleep with me.

When my alarm clock goes off in the morning, he immediately lies on top of me. He doesn’t want me to get out of bed. That is really a statement by him – he lies down in such a way that I cannot reach my phone to turn off the alarm. And then I have to stay in bed longer. Very funny of course.

Sammy is also a real sleepyhead. During the day, he lies all day in his new cat tree – it has a big relaxing basket on top, two hammocks and a sleeping house underneath. If I can’t find him during the day, he lies there – sprawled out snoring on top of his throne or down in the sleeping house.

Are you happy with the cat tree?

Yes, very much so! Sammy loves it. He likes to sleep in it, but also to romp around in it. The scratching posts are well used and of good quality. And as the owner, I am of course very happy with that.

What are your favourite moments with Sammy?

I actually like everything with my Sammy. And I really enjoy playing with him, because he gets very fanatical. I make him happiest with his cat-rod in combination with his play tunnel. If I move the rod fast enough, he jumps over and through the tunnel. When i take a shower, Sammy can also be found in the bathroom. Then he plays with water droplets. Or he tries to catch my towel when i dry myself. Of course, that’s not very handy when I’m in a hurry, but it’s a lot of fun.

Sammy is the only cat in the house. How do you make sure he doesn’t feel alone?

Sammy is best friends with my father’s cat. So when I go to see him for a few days, Sammy goes with me. And when I go on holiday, Sammy stays there too – both the cats love that. During the day, when I am away from home for work or study, I put on the radio or a video for Sammy. The sound of that makes him feel less alone.

We are ready for the last question: What do you like about cats?

Cats are cute, beautiful and crazy. And wonderful to cuddle with. Especially Sammy, of course!

Kelly was looking for a good quality scratching post with lots of places to sleep, scratch and play. She also wanted a scratching post of good quality and with a nice height. Cat tree Catharina 160 from Petrebels seemed ideal for her cat Sammy. And it was a good choice, because Sammy really loves his new scratching post!

Katten slapen gemiddeld 16 uur per dag en doen dat vol overgave: er wordt gerekt, gestrekt en schaamteloos gegaapt. Heerlijk. De Luie Rebel is er wel héél goed in. Die laat rennen en spelen liever aan een ander over en ploft met gemak overal neer voor een overheerlijk dutje. Maar het liefst ligt deze Rebel in een lekker zacht mandje of hangmatje.

Katten hebben van nature de behoefte om hun nagels te scherpen. Ze markeren daarmee hun territorium en worden er ontspannen en blij van. De Krabbel Rebel weet van geen ophouden als het om krabbelen gaat. Maak van je huis daarom een feestje voor deze Rebel en zet één (of meer) goede krabpalen neer.

Buitenkatten houden van hun vrijheid en van avontuur. Ze verstoppen zich vaak in struiken en houden de hele buurt in de gaten. Ze kunnen zich uren vermaken met rondvliegende insecten en nemen – als het even meezit – een echte muis voor je mee naar huis. De Outdoor Rebel komt thuis om gezellig met de baasjes te kroelen en rustig te eten. En stelt het op prijs als er een fijn plekje is om uit te rusten voor het volgende avontuur.

Sommige katten blijven liever binnen. Of het baasje wil dit graag. Indoor Rebels vinden het heerlijk om naar buiten te kijken – naar al het spannends wat zich daar afspeelt. Je maakt deze katten blij door het binnen net zo spannend te maken als buiten. Prikkel hun instincten met speeltjes en krabmeubels waar ze lekker in kunnen klimmen, want dan blijven ze gelukkig en gezond.

Cats sleep up to 16 hours a day with full commitment: lots of stretching and shameless yawning… Mhmm, delicious. The lazy Rebel masters this trait like no other and prefers to leave the running and playing to someone else. This lazy napper is able to lie down anywhere to take a well-deserved rest, but they prefer a nice and soft hammock or basket.

Outdoor cats love adventure and freedom. They often hide in bushes to keep an eye on their surroundings. They can entertain themselves for hours with bugs flying around and they might even take home a real mouse for you! The outdoor Rebel will come home to cuddle with its owner and to eat peacefully. This adventurer would appreciate it if there is a nice spot in your house to rest before the next adventure.

Some cats prefer to stay inside, this can also be a decision made by the owner. Indoor Rebels enjoy watching the outside world – and everything exciting that happens there. You can make these cats happy by making the indoor world just as exciting as the outdoor world. Stimulate their senses with toys and cat furniture in which they can climb. This way they remain healthy and happy.

Katzen schlafen durchschnittlich 16 Stunden pro Tag und tun dies voller Hingabe. Sie strecken sich, dehnen sich und gähnen unverhohlen. Herrlich! Der faule Rebell ist sehr gut darin. Er überlässt das Toben und Spielen am liebsten jemand anderem und macht stattdessen lieber ein kleines Nickerchen. Am liebsten bevorzugt dieser Schläfer ein weiches Sofa oder ein gepolsterte Liegefläche.

Katzen haben von Natur aus das Bedürfnis, ihre Nägel zu schärfen. Damit markieren sie zum einen ihr Territorium und verhindern zum anderen, dass die Nägel zu lang werden und einwachsen. Kratzen, wetzen und schärfen macht sie entspannt und glücklich. Der Kratz-Rebell kennt dann auch kein Halten mehr, wenn es ums Wetzen und Kratzen geht. Mach dein Zuhause also zu einer Partyzone für diesen Rebellen und stelle einen (oder mehrere) gute Kratzbäume mit viel Wetzmöglichkeiten auf.

Freigängerkatzen lieben die Freiheit und das Abenteuer. Oft verstecken sie sich im Gebüsch und behalten die ganze Nachbarschaft im Auge. Sie können sich stundenlang mit fliegenden Insekten vergnügen, streunen herum und bringen im schlimmsten Fall eine Maus als Geschenk mit nach Hause. Der Outdoor-Rebell kommt nur nach Hause, um mit den Besitzern eventuell zu kuscheln und sich sein Fressen servieren zu lassen. Und er schätzt es über alle Maßen, wenn er einen schönen, gemütlichen Platz am liebsten auf einem Kratzbaum zum Ausruhen für das nächste Abenteuer angeboten bekommt.

Einige Katzen sind reine Indoor-Rebellen. Entweder, weil sie es vorziehen in einem warmen und gefahrlosen Zuhause zu leben oder weil der Besitzer dies so möchte. Indoor-Rebellen lieben es nach draußen zu schauen – und das aufregende Leben draußen aus sicherer Entfernung zu beobachten. Diese Katzen sind glücklich, wenn man drinnen die gleichen Abenteuer simuliert, die sie draußen beobachten können. Stimuliere deren Instinkte mit Spielzeug und Kratzmöbeln, in denen sie herumklettern und toben können, damit sie gesund, agil und glücklich bleiben.
