Where does one start when asked to create a cat blog?

cats are one of the most popular pets worldwide, next to dogs.

It was widely believed that cats were originally domesticated in Egypt 4,000 years ago however, their history among humans actually goes much further back. While it has now been determined that wild cats lived among people in Mesopotamia over 100,000 years ago, they were domesticated around the same time as dogs, sheep and goats approximately 12,000 BC. Recent archaeological excavations have provided evidence that the Near Eastern Wildcat is the closest relative of the modern-day domestic cat and was bred by Mesopotamian farmers, most likely as a way of controlling pests, such as mice, which were attracted by grain supplies.

Cats have been revered for centuries by various cultures, most notably the ancient Egyptians. In fact, the Egyptians are responsible for the actual name `cat’ in that it derives from the North African word for the animal, “quattah”, and as the cat was so closely associated with Egypt, almost every other European nation applies variations on this word. The goddess Bastet, commonly depicted as a cat or as a woman with a cat’s head, was among the most popular deities. She was the keeper of hearth and home, protector of women’s secrets, guardian against evil spirits and disease, and the goddess of cats. This worship of the cat resulted in the establishment of a penalty prior to 450 BC in Egypt, whereby the killing of a cat resulted in death.

The adoration to the cat is also noted in India. The Indian cat goddess, Sastht, served much the same role as the Egyptian goddess, Bastet. The cat was highly regarded throughout homes, farms and even palaces due to its usefulness with controlling the pest population of less desirable creatures such as mice, rats and snakes.

Cats are thought to have been introduced to Europe by Phoenician traders who may have smuggled them out of Egypt. Since the Phoenicians are acknowledged to have traded extensively with every known civilization of the time, cats may have been spread around the region on a fairly regular basis.. It was well documented, during the 15th century Age of Discovery, that cats were kept on ships in order to control the vermin population and, it’s plausible, they served the same purpose for the Phoenicians.

One common cat figurine popular with the Japanese is the maneki-neko or “beckoning” cat. The cat has its paw raised as if it's waving which is believed to bring good fortune. This became a popular trend in the last few decades in China whereby a shop owner would keep a cat or simply a cat sculpture on the counter, hoping to increase sales.

There are legitimate benefits to both our social welfare and health when owning a pet. In fact, in Canada there has been an upward trend established toward the number of households owning a cat or dog since 2004, with 8.8 million cats versus 7.6 million dogs considered as pets in 2016.

In Asia, the perception of pets has changed toward making cats and dogs more like a family member which has caused a massive surge in the pet economy. The annual growth rate of the pet care industry in Asia between 2017- 2022 is expected to be 8 per cent, making this one of the few mass market industries seeing rapid growth. With more than 100 million pets, China has now become the third largest pet owning country after the US and Japan. Demand for other ‘pet’ services has grown dramatically too. Owners not only visit pet salons for grooming and manicures, but also indulge in clothing, pet-sized furniture and carriers, gourmet ‘baked’ treats as well as the ever evolving array of toys.

Cats are capable of developing extremely strong bonds with people and are often preferred to the dog due to their ease of care. Cats tend to be more affordable since they don’t require daycare or regular dog walking services, the neutering procedure is also less costly. Cats are uncanny, solitary hunters that have the ability to understand how things work without being trained.

Cats are known for their self-sufficiency and independent nature along with their cleanliness and they certainly don’t require the space of a dog. In fact, cats are becoming more ‘indoor’ creatures in many parts of the world due to the various common predators lurking in the suburbs such as the coyote, raccoons, foxes, bears and cougars to name a few.

Even though cats can sometimes appear to be aloof, they quite often develop separation anxiety when their favourite person disappears for an extended period of time. They aren’t fond of change and can get stressed out simply with the move of a chair. It is generally known that cats have the tendency to hide illnesses which is why it is so important to consider the degree of illness prior to taking kitty to the vet. The consequential stress as well as the maturity of the cat should also be taken into consideration since they are so averse to leaving the home.

While people recognize both the pros and cons associated with dogs and cats, humans will continue to cherish their relationships with them, treat them as another member of the family and reside with them in harmonious perpetuity.

Buy emulin the world's first patented sugar and carbohydrate manager

Emulin helps take care of the damage that sugar and carbohydrates does to your body.

One of the fastest growing diseases in the world is type II diabetes. The cause of this outbreak is clear, Sugar. Today the average American consumes 180 pounds of sugar per person per year, contrast that to the year 1900 when the average American consumed 18 pounds of sugar per person per year. That’s an alarming increase of 10-fold. The human body is unable to deal with that much sugar. Excess sugar is the leading cause of type II diabetes. Sugar consumption is also associated with low-grade inflammation and the increased rates of cancer.

The key is to eat less foods containing sugar. That is easier said than done, as sugar is in virtually everything that we eat. Thirty years ago, the food industry was forced by the Government to remove fat from processed food. When the food industry complied, they replaced the fat with sugar, usually fructose. Fructose is a highly processed form of sugar that is poisonous.

Dr. Joseph Ahrens says "Everyone Should Buy Emulin and use it daily"

buy emulinDr. Joseph Ahrens the inventor of Emulin, discovered that people that consumed a large amount of fruit and low amounts of foods containing added sugars seldom became diabetic. That led him to believe that there must be something present within fruit that protects the body from the damage that normally occurs when someone consumes foods containing sugar and/or carbohydrates. That thought led him on a path of discovery that lasted 10 years. He developed a product that contained the protective elements that naturally occur in fruit. He called his newly invented natural supplement, Emulin. Emulin is basically the concentration of the protective elements found in fruit. It comes in the form of an easy to take capsule. When taken daily, Emulin helps the body allocate sugar where it’s needed and in a harmonious, natural way chaperones the surplus sugars out of the body through natural elimination.

Emulin is Patented and the subject of clinical studies

Dr. Ahrens commissioned a double blind, peer reviewed clinical study to prove the effectiveness of Emulin. The study used a control group and Emulin was tested against the leading pharmaceutical drug for treating type II diabetes, Metformin. The conclusion of the clinical study is that Emulin, when taken alone, outperformed the leading pharmaceutical Metformin and when Emulin was taken with Metformin the result was a significant improvement in Metformin’s effectiveness. Emulin is a breakthrough in the battle against type II diabetes.

You may be thinking “I’m not diabetic why should I consider buing Emulin? People that buy Emulin report many health benefits and the majority that use Emulin daily are not diabetic. People purchasing Emulin report that they experience less aches and pains, they sleep better and in numerous cases weight loss is also reported.

Emulin does not treat or cure disease. What it can do is reduce or eliminate low grade inflammation. Low grade inflammation is invariably present where disease is present. If there’s no inflammation there is no disease, it’s that simple. People buy Emulin to help the body safely deal with the harmful side effects of sugar and carbohydrates. The alternative benefit they get is that they lower or eliminate low grade inflammation and in so doing, they help the body to improve its immune system response.

The choice to buy Emulin should be automatic when you know the benefits it delivers to you and your family. Emulin is an essential supplement, buying Emulin is a must. To not buy Emulin is to put your family at risk. The damage that consuming sugars and carbohydrates cause is cumulative. Emulin protects the body from the damages caused by sugar and carbohydrates. To not buy Emulin is like not wearing sunscreen. You can go out in the sun without sunscreen and you won’t contract cancer the next day. However, if you continue to go out in the sun for years without the protection of sunscreen your chances of getting skin cancer go up exponentially. When you buy Emulin and use Emulin daily, the same principle applies. Buying and using Emulin protects the body from the incremental, adverse health effects that an overabundance of sugars and carbohydrates cause.

Conclusion on why you should buy Emulin and consume it everyday

To conclude, buying Emulin and providing Emulin for every member of your family is a must. If you believe that you and your family don’t ingest an excess amount of sugar, I suggest that you do the following test. Sugar and carbohydrate consumption should not exceed 20 grams per day, per person. Over a given week look at the food labels. Determine how many carbohydrates and sugar each family member consumes. If it exceeds 20, the choice to buy Emulin is clear. To not buy Emulin is to jeopardize your family's well-being.

Cats have been revered for centuries by various cultures, most notably the ancient Egyptians. In fact, the Egyptians are responsible for the actual name `cat’ in that it derives from the North African word for the animal, “quattah”, and as the cat was so closely associated with Egypt, almost every other European nation employs variations on this word. The goddess Bastetwas among the most popular deities, portrayed as a cat or as a woman with a cat’s head. She was the keeper of hearth and home, protector of women’s secrets, guardian against evil spirits and disease, and the goddess of cats. This worship of the cat resulted in the establishment of a penalty prior to 450 BC in Egypt, whereby the killing of a cat resulted in death.

The devotion to the cat is also noted in India. The Indian cat goddess, Sastht, served much the same role as the Egyptian goddess, Bastet. The cat was highly regarded throughout the land due to its usefulness with controlling the pest population of less desirable creatures such as rats, mice and snakes.

Cats are thought to have been introduced to Europe by Phoenician traders who may have smuggled them out of Egypt. Since the Phoenicians are acknowledged to have traded extensively with every known civilization of the time, cats may have been routinely introduced to the region. It was well documented, during the 15th century Age of Discovery, that cats were kept on ships in order to control the vermin population and, it’s possible, they served the same purpose for the Phoenicians.

One common cat figurine popular with the Japanese is the maneki-neko or “beckoning” cat. The cat has its paw raised as if it's waving which is believed to bring good fortune. This became a popular trend in the last few decades in China whereby a shop owner would keep a cat or simply a cat sculpture on the counter, hoping to increase sales.

Pet ownership has proven benefits to both our health and social well-being. In fact, The number of households owning a cat or dog has been steadily growing since the start of the millennium, with a recorded 8.8 million cats and 7.6 million dogs considered as family pets in Canada alone in 2016.

There has been a boom in the pet economy in Asia with the ‘humanization’ of pets. The annual growth rate of the pet care industry in Asia between 2017- 2022 is expected to be 8 per cent, making this one of the few mass market industries seeing rapid growth. China has become the third largest pet owning country after the US and Japan, with over 100 million pets. The pet economy now encompasses an array of services, from grooming, manicures, pet furniture and carriers, numerous types of fresh and raw food, treats and baked goods as well as the huge market for pet toys. According to industry trends, projections for the pet business will continue with its constant upward growth unabated. In 2017, 69.51 billion was spent on pets in just the United States alone.

Cats are often considered as the preferred choice over the dog as they too are capable of establishing strong bonds with people, but are easier to look after and don’t require the daily walks. Cats also tend to be less expensive as they don’t require any day care services and the procedure for spaying and neutering is significantly less. Cats are uncanny, solitary hunters that have the ability to understand how things work without being trained.

Cats are known for their cleanliness, self-sufficiency and independent nature and they definitely do not need the same amount of space. In fact, more and more cat owners are keeping their kitties indoors for safety reasons due to the various predators living within the residential areas.

Even though cats can sometimes appear to be aloof, they quite often develop separation anxiety when their favourite person disappears for an extended period of time. They aren’t fond of change and can get stressed out simply with the move of a chair. It is generally known that cats have the tendency to hide illnesses which is why it is so important to consider the degree of illness prior to taking kitty to the vet. The consequential stress as well as the maturity of the cat should also be taken into consideration since they are so reluctant to changing their surroundings even if only temporarily.

While people recognize both the pros and cons associated with dogs and cats, humans will continue to cherish their relationships with them, treat them as another family member and reside with them in harmonious perpetuity.
