Help Your Cat Settle Into a New Place by Buttering it’s Paws
If you just moved to a new place and you noticed your cat is disturbed by his or her unfamiliar surroundings there’s a simple cure to put them at ease. According to the user kazmataz on Instructables.com, you just need to butter up their paws:
“Hey cat people – next time you move, butter your cat’s paws before you let them outdoors for the first time at your new residence. Instead of darting out the door in a panic, the cat will sit down to lick the butter, which gives it a little time to become aware of it’s surroundings. Not only is butter a tasty treat, but your cat’s coat will be glossier, and the grease from the butter will keep furballs at bay.”
A calm cat with a glossier coat and no furballs? Now I know why my girlfriend named her cat Mr. Butters.
