Prick up your ears – just how well can cats hear

Prick up your ears – just how well can cats hear

Would you believe that cats have even better hearing than dogs? They hear a wider range of sounds and hear a much higher range of pitches than humans.

They can also discriminate between the origin of sounds better than we can, making this an ideal way to hear their prey.

Both of their ears can swivel independently of each other. Making the source of any noise pinpoint accurate.

The inner engineering of a cats ear is also amazing. The tiny canals and chambers of the inner ear are full of fluid which helps them keep perfect balance. No wonder they are so agile and graceful in movement.

One thing you should be aware of though, is the fact that cats don’t necessarily recognise their names when you call them. But they do recognise their owners voices as a reassuring sign – thank goodness for that.

So, if you use HomeFurYou for all cat sitting needs, we won’t impersonate you but we will use our gentle soothing voices to make them feel totally at home!

Famous for 15 Minutes

Martin and myself had a rather surreal experience recently when we appeared in the newspaper and on television! The reason why we were featured was because we have been married before to each other, divorced and then remarried! With the news about Phil Collins doing something very similar fresh in the media, the Daily Mail contacted us to arrange a photoshoot and an interview. It was fun for an evening prancing around in new frocks and having my make up done and best of all we got to pose with Posh and Becks for the official family photo which you can see on these pages.

The story was duly published and we rushed to the shops to buy 6 copies, as did my parents! There was a great buzz on social media and we thought that would be that. But one thing leads to another and the This Morning tv team soon came calling. Would we be happy to go on there for a live interview with the rather gorgeous Phil and Holly!? You bet! We loved the whole experience and conquered our nerves in the green room and again more make up! The presenters and crew were lovely and we got to stand ten yards away from the great Rick Wakeman (one of our heroes) just before we went on. The interview was a blur but we seemed to get through it and then the social media buzz started up again, both good and bad!

So after our 15 minutes of fame we are more than happy to return to the shadows and concentrate our efforts on running the best cat business there is. But it was a lot of fun whilst it lasted.
