How Would My Cats React If I Faked My Own Death?

Cole and Marmalade are two rescued cats who not only entertain humans with their funny videos but also help raise awareness for cats in need. Cole is the world's sweetest black cat and wants to help dispel the myths surrounding black cats and make sure they get adopted too! Marmalade's a feisty ginger kitty... recently diagnosed with lymphoma and FIV, he's now battling cancer and helping raise awareness at the same time! And this, this person lying on the floor faking sudden death is Chris Poole, their human and the brains behind the Coalandmarmalade channel, the same channel that entertains us with its fun videos but it also educates us regarding issues such as adoption, spaying and neutering, #PromotePawsitivity and all the answers the world needs. Talking about answers, this video is a response to your request: What would Cole & Marmalade do if Chris suddenly dropped dead? … Many of you have been asking to see their reaction, so here it is! Watch! Marmalade is the feisty ginger cat, always inquisitive and full of energy despite his health condition. He is the first to notice and inspect the large human laying still and filling the entire floor of the room. Examining from all angles, Marmalade doesn’t want to miss a single piece of evidence. His face is getting more and more concerned and it finally shows in one of the cameras as if saying: “And who is to feed me now?” Coal, ever so collected and analytical, observes the entire drama from atop a cabinet, his analytical mind piercing through the entire scam. And yet, the human doesn’t even flinch, so Coal starts to show a bit of a concern. Nope! It was just a wishful thinking on our part. He retrieves right into one of his favorite boxes.

Cat Celebrates Birthday With A Palette Of Amusing Toys3m06s

Cat Celebrates Birthday With A Palette Of Amusing Toys

Watching cats play makes us smile, laugh out loud, and maybe even join in the fun. While adult pets play less than babies, all cats play to some extent through their entire life. It’s not only fun for you both, but healthy as well. Panther Cole turned 6 years old and together with his friend Marmalade, both rescued cats, entertain themselves and us wit the new birthday toys. They not only enjoy playing with the toys but they also take the role of competing and hunting very seriously. And it is not like it happens often in the world of pet cats to have fun with such fancy toys. Some cats play only with cans and yarn. But these went a step forward, making the most of what they are given. Their owner has really made their day and what could be the most gratifying if not enjoying your present to the fullest and with them, these cats exercise their playful character. Equipped with green tissue grass mat, 3D simulation plush with replenish catnip, tower of tracks ball, the games may begin. These happy cats among many other acrobatic and adventurous games, love the pouncing game the most. They successfully mimic the prey-bite used to dispatch toy fish. They also shuffle sideways, back arched high, almost tiptoeing around the other objects. Chasing and pawing and capturing. That is what they do. We see how they stalk their pretending prey before pouncing. The cats cats also prefer prey that flies through the air, that wiggles on the ground, that hides and disappears, or that moves in plain sight - a prey that is light feathery, small and furry, long and snaky, easy to carry in their mouth, easy to bat with their paws and fun to chew.

First Time Cats Go Outside In The New Catio4m39s

First Time Cats Go Outside In The New Catio

The general view that the cat is a purely domestic animal, is largely exaggerated. Man made cat domestic by placing it between the walls of the house. Imagine if anyone put you inside for your entire life, wouldn’t you be afraid of the “big outdoors”? This is why it is crucial for your cat to get comfortable with your yard and shed the fears as it sheds that old excess winter coat. However, it is not always possible to just open your doors and let your beloved feline out for some fresh air. Some environments are more dangerous than others: heavy traffic, neighborhood hostile to felines, cold climate, pollution, apartment blocks… This is why it is such a great idea to get a “catio” or outdoor cat run like what is featured in this video. It's the purrfect way for your cats to have some outside time in a safe environment. If you do not believe our words, take it from Cole and Marmalade, our two cats who just love to go outside!

This Is A Cat's Guide To Loving A Human2m28s

This Is A Cat's Guide To Loving A Human

We might like to think that our feline companions aren’t our companions at all. They are tiny little tyrants disguised as these furballs with the intention to fool us into bowing to their every whim. But in all honesty, our cats really do love us, meagre humans. How do cats show love to their owners? Here's Cole and Marmalade's guide to loving a human! 💗 They make sure we always make up right on time for work, meaning they will scream at our bedroom door for food. “Get up, hooman, it’s breakfast time!” They serenade us while we prepare their food. Cats know that life is boring without music and the only way they know how to make music is by meowing, constantly and obsessively. Until the kibble is served. Cats also protect us from bugs. Even when we can’t see them, know that when your cat’s eyes are set on something on the tall end of the wall, there is afoe there, just waiting to pounce. A jump and a swat later, you are safe and your cat comes for a congratulatory pet. Our cats also make sure they we always look presentable. They will lick us with their brush-like tongues until every last rogue hair on our heads is in its rightful place. Our felines know how to appreciate art, so they do their very best to create some exceptional piece whenever they can. Their tools always wary, one day it is a roll of toilet paper, the next, who knows? There is a little pawcasso in every one of them! They know how much we hate chores, but have to do them, so they make sure to add a bit of fun to them. Making the bed? Not a problem, as your cat will jump all over your covers until it is certain you had your workout for the day. Cats know that idle hands are the devil’s workshop, so they do their best to keep us busy at all times. And if they sense that you have been keeping busy with some other cat, they will mark their territory - profusely! Lastly, when they see you come back from wherever you went, they will greet you, kiss you and hug you and drool over you, just like a puppy. They just don’t have to be taken outside.

The Incredible Catnip Plant Works Magic On Cats 2m28s

The Incredible Catnip Plant Works Magic On Cats

Catnip is a plant in the mint family, the oil in the plant that affects cats is called nepetalactone. So, when a cat eats catnip it acts as a sedative. However when it is only smelled it acts as a stimulant. Curiosity killed these cats, so let’s see how catnip worked its magic on them! Afterwards, some cats get very playful, while others just mellow out. It is thought to mimic feline pheromones, triggering those receptors. Even big cats like catnips. Only around 50% of the cats respond. The effects last for 5-15 minutes. There is reg catnip and fresh catnip, but also other plants like Valerian root and silver vine that have the same effects on cats. Footage shows all these plants on the floor and two cats are about to decide which one they ‘prefur’. Watch as these curious cats munch into one plant after another, who knows what the side-effects of this delicious treat will be! There is obviously something contagious in these plants that makes cats go wild about it. Where have you seen a cat going crazy for eating herbs? Is it the smell of it that makes cats go nuts afterwards? Moments after they feasted on the plants, the two cats engaged into fierce play and went all attack mode and seconds after they acted all lazy and started pampering each other. In the last footage, we see a cat, utterly confused, wondering where did all go, obviously oblivious. Dude where did my cardboard go? However, there is no need to worry, these plants are totally safe and non-addictive for your feline pal! Do your cats like catnip?

 Kittens Prove That Ball Pit Is Not Their Thing1m52s

Kittens Prove That Ball Pit Is Not Their Thing

What kind of person you should be to not love a ball pit? Sure, they can be germ-ridden and you never know when someone will yank your foot on the bottom, but hey, at least they are colorful to look at! If you love a good people, we think that maybe you have been a dog in your previous life. You should definitely check out what happens when this pooch gets to see his very own ball pit for the first time. It is love at first sight! But when his adopted cat sibling sees the pit of colorful balls, she is not at all impressed. With that analogy, we think that people who stray away from ball pits actually cats in disguise. Don’t bother denying it. Cole and Marmalade’s owner Chris once made his feline duo a DIY ball pit to entertain them and the two cats had no idea what to do with it at first. We have watched that video many times and we are still not convinced that the cats had any thought about that thing. Chris seems to be convinced they loved it, because when he went to The Cat House on the Kings, California’s largest no-cage, no-kill lifetime cat sanctuary and adoption center, he brought those cats a ball pit as well! Let’s see what happens. Naturally, the kittens were a bit suspicious of the new item in their own backyard. So suspicious, that they needed a bit coercing with a cat wand to bring them inside with the balls. Cats might love a good rotund object to chase around, but the “chasing around” part is crucial! Where would they chase these balls, when they have nowhere to go?! It would seem that ball pits are definitely not a cat thing!

Here's What Cat People Do When It's Cold Outside2m09s

Here's What Cat People Do When It's Cold Outside

The cold weather can bring both the good and the bad in us. If you like the rosyness on your cheeks whenever a chillier breeze drafts by, then you probably don’t understand the sheer agony experienced by people who hate the cold weather. For them the lowering of the temperature is an equivalent to the end of all time. They act like they’ve stopped functioning and they hole up in warm places like bears do when they hibernate. If it wasn’t so drastic, it might have even been funny. However, there’s one good thing that comes out of this situation, and that is the ability and the need to cuddle up to practically anything. Apparently, cats are just like these people, because the furry fluffbals don’t mind the cuddles and scratches this time of the year. If you don’t believe us, here’s a prime example in the video. “Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but snuggling with your cats is so delightful … I wonder how many hours we spend with cats on our laps each year?! Happy 2018 everyone, stay warm and safe out there :)” is the message user “coleandmarmalade” wrote about this video. Apparently, the cats they own adore the feeling of his plush robe and they like to snuggle up to it, even fall asleep inside any chance they get. He is so thoughtful, he lets them sleep on him for more than two hours without moving an inch. How adorable is that?! SUBSCRIBE - https://www.youtube.com/user/chrispoo...

This Gingerbread Cat House Is A Perfect Replacement For A Tree7m10s

This Gingerbread Cat House Is A Perfect Replacement For A Tree

If you hear someone they don’t like Christmas because of all the decorating, then that person should not be trusted! How can someone not love decorating for Christmas? The baubles, the ornaments, the tree….the cats that attack it afterwards, oh the horror! Cole and Marmalade’s owners can no longer put up a Christmas tree in their house, because of Marmalade’s primordial desire to climb the stump and knock everything from the branches to the ground. Someone who is not into DIYing might have given up all hope on Christmas, but not Chris and Jess! Knowing their furbabies, this couple decided to forgo the tree this year and go for the DIY epic gingerbread cardboard cat mansion. You will need some heavy duty cardboard boxes, as many as you want (remember, more boxes means more space the play in), regular boxes for the trimmings, a cutting mat, rulers, stuff to cut with, loads of glue (Elmer's, Modge Podge, hot glue, the works!) masking tape, paper towel tubes, paper plates, wrapping paper and your imagination. Stack those heavy duty boxes until you are satisfied with the base. Then start marking and cutting the openings for doors and windows (every house needs windows, even play houses). Be sure to let your felines observe and inspect, because they are your customers here. Use the paper towel rolls as pillars if you want your gingerbread house to have floors and wrap them in candy cane wrapping paper. The walls of your paper plates can be used as snow-covered shingles for the roof. The rest is up to your creativity. Use everything that is cat safe to add more color to your gingerbread house and leave it to the inspectors to check it out. We are certain they will love it! Meowy Catmas!

Decorating A Christmas Tree With Cats, Challenge Accepted2m50s

Decorating A Christmas Tree With Cats, Challenge Accepted

If you’ve ever tried to decorate the Christmas tree with cats in the room, then you know just how epic this video is going to be. The cat v.s. Christmas tree battle continues... There’s something about cats and Christmas trees that doesn’t fit. Especially when your cat is knocking your tree over for the fifth time in the middle of the night, leaving your ornaments shattered on the floor, as you are trying to pry your cat from the branches. This is the biggest challenge for cat-owners this Christmas season. Having this eternal battle in mind, Cole and Marmalade are surprisingly well-behaved in this video. Marmalade is definitely the tree-climber of the two, but even he doesn’t cause any major disasters. Nonetheless the end result is hilarious! At the beginning of the video, owner admits that he is a little bit scared to unpack all his Christmas ornaments and decorations and put them on the holiday tree, knowing he will have to put up with his cats and the entire process will end up in disaster. Here goes nothing! Sneaky Marmalade was dying for her owner to start assembling the curious-looking tree for her to flaunt them climbing skills. However, her owner knew better and anticipated the holiday catastrophe, but put out the tree just for fun before eventually putting it away again. While Cole prefers the actually cat tree, Marmalade is very curious about the fancy Christmas tree that shines brightly. She even tried to place herself as a giant ornament in the middle of the tree, after climbing with delight and testing her balance! If you have cats for pets you sure know the struggle of putting up a Christmas tree and crossing your fingers, hoping to last as long as possible. Actually, you need to be strategic about it! The best way to protect your Christmas tree is to put it in a room where your cats don’t have access to. If your house isn’t set up in a way that this is possible, choose your decorations very carefully and consider securing your tree in multiple places to prevent tip-overs. Smart, right! Try to avoid tinsel, because it can cause intestinal blockages that require surgery in case your cat swallows it. The same goes for ornaments that your cat may be tempted to chew on. And never leave your tree’s lights plugged in unless you’re home to supervised. Neat tips! SUBSCRIBE - https://www.youtube.com/user/chrispoo... SHOP - http://shop.spreadshirt.com/coleandma...

How To Make A Shelter For Your Neighborhood Cats1m27s

How To Make A Shelter For Your Neighborhood Cats

Winter is just around the corner, which brings those amazing holidays we all love. But while we sit at home, by the cozy fireplace (or other heating elements) and wrapped up like burritos in blankets, there are animals out there that struggle to find a dry and warm place to spend the night! Help feral cats stay warm this winter! This is the easiest, fastest and cheapest shelters that you can make for a few bucks. It won’t dent your wallet, but it will make your heart grow when you see those kittens come for a warm stay! You will need a large plastic container with a lid, a Styrofoam box with its own lid that will fit inside your plastic container, some straw and a knife. Start by cutting a hole in the side of the container that would be big enough for a cat to fit through (5 ½ inches should do). Place the styrofoam box inside and use the hole you cut previously to make another one in the Styrofoam. Fill it with enough straw to make it cosy - about half way up should be plenty, since your visitors will pack it down with use). Now all you have to do is place the lids on both boxes and put them outside! The Styrofoam will keep the temperature inside fro dropping, while the plastic on the outside will guard it from the elements. If you're looking to make more substantial shelters, there are many different options to be found here: http://www.alleycat.org/ShelterGallery Discover the truth about feral cats here: http://www.alleycat.org/page.aspx?pid...

Silly Lion Plays Fetch Like A Dog2m57s

Silly Lion Plays Fetch Like A Dog

Cat Man Chris aka Cole and Marmalade’s human dad, has been on a great adventure. He’s a self confessed crazy cat guy and, as a true lover of all cats both big and small, recently he had the opportunity to volunteer at some of South Africa’s big cat rescue sanctuaries. Here he is at the Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary where one of the female lions love to play with sticks! Chris said: “We all know most dogs like to play fetch, but when you think of lions, playing fetch with them doesn’t really spring to mind. Well this lion is different, her name is Serabie and she likes to play her own version of fetch!" Well… it's more like "Kill The Stick" but it's fun to watch and great enrichment too :) “Africa was amazing, I spent almost 3 weeks at Emoya, it's a great sanctuary - I had to make this video, I thought it was so cool. Serabie knows this isn't food, it's the wrong time of day, there's no food truck or buckets… she just sees a moving target and her instincts kick in :)" How awesome is that? Chris then adds: “Remember these cats may look cute and cuddly but they’re still WILD ANIMALS! … Don’t trust any facilities that allow contact with big cats."

Man Is Confused Why His Cats Sleep All Day, He Sets Up Camera At Night And Watches This Footage

What all cat lovers have been hoping to hear had finally come right from the mouths of those we like to trust most. Scientist have proven that watching cat videos can actually boost your productivity! Keeping them as pets is a great stress reliever; some offices even let cats stay there so that the employees can feel better while at work. Cole and Marmalade’s owner Chris Poole had the pleasure to foster a litter of four tiny kittens that have been rescued from a nearby abandoned building. Being a can man himself, Chris is very familiar with the hilarious antics of baby kittens, so he decided to treat us with a unique experience. Have you ever wondered what kitties do at night? Wonder no more, because with the help of Chris’s night vision camera, we can all witness the whirlpool of adorable antics that can come out of four tiny cat babies. He recorded the litter for the four nights they stayed with him and his internet celebrikitties Cole and Marmalade and we have to admit, it is one of the most hilariously adorable clips we got to watch! Everything and anything is a plaything for these tiny felines and as they have literally no worries in their lives (or at least, not anymore), they got to be their kitty selves and play with everything that Chris provided them with. 4 kittens, 4 nights, 1 funny video! ... Thanks fur watching cat people :) Cat Man Chris Channel: https://www.youtube.com/catmanchrispoole

If Cats Said 'Mom' Instead Of 'Meow', It Would Look Like This29s

If Cats Said 'Mom' Instead Of 'Meow', It Would Look Like This

It may sound sad for some and incomprehensible for others, but there is folk out there who opt out of having offspring of their own for reasons unique to them and instead choose to keep pets their whole lives. We can only assume that reason being is pets don’t yell at you “mom” and “dad” every time they need help or want something. We can only speculate. But even the pets learn how to communicate with their owners. While dogs are more expressive, bending over when they want to play or looking at the hoomans with those big puppy eyes, cats have but one means of communication - their voice. Cats have been proven to only meow when they have to convey something to their human companions. But what if, instead of ‘meow’, cats yelled ‘mom’? We have Cole and marmalade to bring that scenario to life and after just 20 seconds, boy are we glad they don’t speak! When a cat wants attention, he will come right at your face, nudge your hands or pat your shoulder. If the food bowl is empty, they will trill. They will make the same sound if they see you after a long time too, so it can get a bit confusing. Sure, they can also meow in the most inconvenient of moments too. But can you imagine is your cat shouted “mom” and “dad” instead of meowing? Of course, there are times when we wish our pets could use words to tell us what is wrong with them r if they are sick, but boy, are we glad they don’t use human language!

10 Ways Domestic Cats and Big Cats Are Similar

House Cats to Tigers! - No matter what the size, cats are all very similar… Oh yeah except BIG cats can and will eat you if they feel like it! … They will always have their wild instincts which makes them dangerous and unpredictable. Did you know it's legal to own tigers, lions and other big cats as "pets" in over half of the USA?! - Not only is this is a HUGE public safety concern it also means that THOUSANDS of exotic animals are languishing in tiny backyard cages or rundown roadside "zoos" Breeders also exploit big cat cubs as photo props and force them to perform in circus acts, when they become too large to use or become "unmanageable" they're discarded back into the exotic animal trade and killed for their body parts or made into trophies.

Kitten's First Vet Visit3m19s

Kitten's First Vet Visit

Take Your Cat to the Vet Day - Marmalade's first trip to the vet when he was a kitten… he loved exploring the new space but as you could see wasn't a fan of the vaccinations! … Such a BIG meow from such a tiny kitten! This was literally the day after Marm came into our lives, he had fleas and came from a family who didn't want him… He had two siblings that died during birth and they also lived by feral cats, it wasn't until later that we found out his mom was often let outside to roam free which is almost certainly why Marm is FIV+… Since we rescued Marm his mom has thankfully been spayed! There are more cats than dogs in the U.S. but vet visits for cats are statistically down and it’s a major concern! It's very important to schedule regular check-ups at the vet for your kitties, cats are so good at hiding signs of illness, early detection of any symptoms is invaluable to their health and well being… (and yours!) 10 Tips For EASIER Vet Visits - by Layla Morgan Wilde of Cat Wisdom 101: http://catwisdom101.com/10-tips-for-e...
