Maybe the reason for the cat’s independence comes from their ability to live on their own. Watch the documentary and learn about the hidden side of that wonderful little ball of fur on your lap. Chaos theory has a bad name, conjuring up images of unpredictable weather, economic crashes and science gone wrong.
The mere mention of the name jellyfish can evoke the most negative feelings even in an experienced ocean explorer. Stephen Fry explores the world of manic depression, a mental illness which affects up to 4 million people in the UK, including himself. Drawing From Life is a 30 minute documentary about a group of people who have all attempted suicide on multiple occasions.

Waxing and waning in popularity over the decades, the Klan is the proverbial phoenix, rising from the ashes to gain membership and popularity when it seems to be extinguished.
My little killers go out every day to hunt and I encourage them; they cry for me, to show me what they caught. Well I could put them in individual padded cells, keep their claws cut dull; would that be safe enough?
I could not be so cruel as to force my cats to stay indoors all their lives, staring out the windows, crying to go chase something or to socialize with the other cats that come to visit. Secret Life of Cats is a must-see programme for fans of our four-legged, feline friends, as it uses revolutionary new filming techniques to uncover the beautiful, awe-inspiring qualities each and every one of them possesses, giving an insight into cats as you've never seen them before.
Their balance, senses and spell-binding social skills fascinate us and Secret Life of Cats deciphers the mystery of cats to discover how amazing they are. The documentary also reveals remarkable stories about cats, including one cat that saved a couple from a gas explosion, another who survived falling from a nineteenth floor flat (well, they are supposed to have nine lives), and the surprising relationship between a blind Labrador and the feline friend who acts as his guide.
The programme also looks as the benefits of having a cat as a pet, for instance, did you know when you stroke a cat your immune system improves, your blood pressure goes down, your body halts production of stress-related hormones – making you a third less likely to suffer from heart disease? We meet Basil, the cat whose sense of smell and determination alerted his owners to the fact they had left the gas ring on in the cooker. After accidentally left one of the gas rings on, Sue went up to bed and neither she or her husband could smell gas. Terfel, a 14 year old Labrador, is blind and used to be stuck in his basket because he couldn’t see where he was going and kept getting hurt.
Lorcan struggled with his temper and found it difficult to talk to anyone outside the family, until Jessi-cat turned up.

This landmark three-part special, Wild China, gains unprecedented access into this most enigmatic of countries, to reveal a land of astonishing complexity.  A land of immense cultural diversity and a wide range of traditional lifestyles – often in close partnership with nature.
Worshiped as a symbol of life in ancient Egypt, and coveted by sea captains and farmers for centuries, the cat is one of the most beloved animal in history. It’s the only animal who chose humans as their domestication partner rather than the other way around. But there is a fascinating and hidden side to Chaos, one that scientists are only now beginning to understand. And ita€™s no wonder, these amazing creatures have earned their bad reputation because they have developed an impressive set of skills to protect themselves and adapt to basically every under water habitat. Can you link to research from peer reviewed journals to back up that claim before calling someone an idiot? Non-native, invasive animals are a major threat to biodiversity and cats are one of the worst.
Human bred cats are only invasive and a threat to warmer areas where they can thrive in the wild. The pilot light on Sue’s central heating was due to switch on soon, and that would ignite the gas.
Lorcan’s mum Jayne, says: “When he started nursery when he was three, he just didn’t speak. A wildlife treasure of Western America, this big cat is known by many other names, like the puma, cougar and deer tiger.
Through the ages, it was the cat's extraordinary ability to hunt and kill rodents that endeared it to humans. This documentary reveals fascinating feline facts, including how cats spend one sixth of their lives grooming, sleep for 12 hours a day and even have UV vision!
They can interbreed and produce viable offspring, but there are genetic markers for each and should be preserved sense the Northern Rhino did not start dieing off because of an evolutionary dead end. It was horrendous to see the women chasing the cats to bash them with large sticks & then cook them up for dinner. As many negative things there are about cats there’s more than triple the amount of positive sides of owning a cat. John Bradshaw, an expert in human-animal interactions at Bristol University, who led the study alongside Sarah Ellis, a cat behaviorist at University of Lincoln’s Life Sciences department.Each cat was fitted with a  specially-designed collar which collected GPS data on their location and level  of activity. By doing so, you confirm that you and your parent or guardian have read and accept our Voting Terms of Use, Privacy Policy and Cookie policy, and that the details you have entered are correct. While wild populations have rebounded over the years, habitat loss, poaching and territorial overlapping with human settlements continue to threaten the species.
There are also incredible stories about cats that have saved the lives of their owners or those that have themselves beaten the odds.
The claws of the tiger are no sharper than those of that sweet little creature who listens to your baby talk and plays with your finger.


They can jump the equivalent of thirty feet straight up and have an extraordinary ability to balance themselves on the ground and in the air. The Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute considers cats in the wild to be the greatest threat to U.S. Cats can not become invasive here, because there are too many predators that will kill them given the chance…besides the human killers.
When i come home from school and when my mum comes home from work our cat brightens up our day. The scientists could then remove the collars  and plug them into a central  computer installed at their temporary headquarters  in Shamley Green’s  village hall. If the GPS system showed interesting movement  patterns,  the cat in question would be fitted with a ‘cat cam’ – a tiny  surveillance camera designed by specialists at the BBC’s research and  development centre – which dangled from their neck as they went about  their  business.
But it just tailed off to absolutely nothing and went on and on, so it was a massive problem. Sweet little Socks has the same instincts and the same natural predatory nature as the jaguar. I think their most useful contribution is to ensure that my cat exercises and maintains his healthy exuberance for life!!!!! Humans leaving boxes of kittens wherever they think is a good spot to get rid of them, is a problem. The best you can do is teach the cats, and children, to be world proof; safe by education and training. I couldn’t let him go out with his friends, because if he lost them he just wouldn’t be able to ask anybody for help. I’ve never been more disappointment with the portrayal of cats EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They do not like being on a day shift but they are very happy and very thankful that their human understands them. All of my cats know to look and listen before crossing the road; they know the sounds of dangerous animals. Freida has multiple health issues, including incredibly brittle bones, ongoing anemia, paper-thin skin, tiny size, and liver and gallbladder abnormalities. From the county parks of Florida to the outback of Australia, domestic cats and their feral cousins are stalking some creatures to the brink of extinction. It’s easy to see why people in that era believed cats were the companions of witches and burned some of them at the stake along with their owners. Forgotten Felines is sending Freida’s records to a geneticist at Tufts University in hopes of getting some answers as to the cause of her health issues.
