Cats who can’t figure out walls [x]

PLEASE TAKE YOUR CAT TO THE VET IF YOU SEE THEM DOING THIS BEHAVIOR OVER TIME.

It’s called “head pressing” and it occurs in dogs and cats. 

Head pressing is characterized by the compulsive act of pressing the head against a wall or other object for no apparent reason. This generally indicates damage to the nervous system, which may result from a number of varying causes, including prosencephalon disease (in which the forebrain and thalamusparts of the brain are damaged), or toxic poisoning.

I wasn’t going to reblog this until I read the important caption dang thank you!!!

whoa, what if your cat puts their head face down while sleeping, never just puts head against wall though? someone?

"It’s been a decade since I’ve lived in Loudon County, Tennessee but I still visit whenever I can. The last time I drove through the town I finally noticed how much my home had changed. The streets are mostly silent now, businesses closed and boarded up, the hospital where my mother was born is now a nursing home, the smog from the corn syrup and hot dog factories stretches further now, the persimmon trees in yard of my best friend’s old house have been chopped down by the new occupants, historic buildings are left vacant, with mother nature taking over as a tenant, and along the backroads are scattered signs of our farming ancestors, abandon silos and overgrown barns after every bend. It seems the town embodies the past but holds few beginnings."
