Play strategies by Jack Campin
Then there was someone whose cat had claimed ownership of an orange wig. I think the cat might've thought the wig was its baby (I can't remember whether this was a male or female cat, but maybe it doesn't matter). Anyway, this cat would drag the wig between its legs and walk bowlegged ...

Head Count, Please! by jmcquown[_2_]
I know some of us have, sadly, lost a beloved furbaby or two. It's hard for me to keep up with who is owned by whom. It's easy enough to remember just one cat but when you have a clowder I really can't keep up! I'll start. I am owned by Buffy. She's really an amazing cat. Before I adopted...

The natives are restless by Joy[_3_]
Both of my cats are indoor-only, and usually don't seem to be bothered by rain. However, today for some reason, they are very restless. They've gotten into the habit of spending most of the day on my bed, with Koala usually under the quilt on top. They may come out to ask for treats when I'm...

Cat Treats by Cheryl[_6_]
A vet suggested to me that I put food in those plastic balls with holes in them so that my rather large cats would get some exercise. I'm not sure that this was ever effective, since I put treats in them to increase the cats' motivation, and the cats seemed to expect the treats in addition to...

PINK?! by jmcquown[_2_]
For some reason this morning Buffy is very vocal. When giving her scritches I noticed her ears and her paw pads seem exceptionally brighter pink. (She's an orange tabby.) She isn't usually this chatty, either. I just noticed this much brighter shade of pink. I've tried looking up these...

And things change MORE by The New Other Guy
GLyN has never cared about people food, until now. For about a year, he has been happy to get a slice or 2 of roast beef lunch meat, when I was making a sandwich. ONLY roast beef, not much of anything else. But THIS week, he expressed a desire to have a piece of roast pork. NOT lunch meat, but...

Claw Clipping Help by jmcquown[_2_]
When I first adopted Buffy in June, 2015, she was very agreeable about my clipping her front claws and even the dew-claws. I was absolutely amazed. I thought, "Good! she's had this done before. Whew!" After a couple of times though, she decided she does NOT want me to do that. I *know* not...

I Frantically searched for Dot by Takayuki
Dot disappeared on me today. When I got home from work, Buster and Spicey greeted me, but Dot was nowhere in sight. This is not too unusual - she's 16 years old and naps a lot. But most evenings, I see her in the window when I come home, since she watches for me, since she's deaf and can't hear the...

Tips for cat owners by eric
Many a time have I wanted to beat the **** out of that furry little ******* that always seems to **** me off. Either by taking a nice warm **** on my brand new carpet, or decided to use me as a clawing device. In this small file, I'd like to suggest ways to hurt or **** of the little ****head that...

I sat outside by jmcquown[_2_]
Buffy is an indoor cat. She will always be an indoor cat. I saw a 10 foot alligator today which reinforces the idea she doesn't need to be roaming around outside. However, it rained practically all year last year, from April through November. I didn't get to sit outside and enjoy anything. ...

RB Sam by Cheryl[_6_]
It's a long time since I posted here, although I do lurk a fair bit. I had two cats, Cinnamon and Sam. Sadly, Sam developed kidney problems, which progressed very rapidly. He died yesterday at the vet clinic, where he was having an IV to try to help him out a bit. He was a lovely cat, very laid...

Took me by surprise! by jmcquown[_2_]
Persia (RB 2014) used to wake me up in the morning by gently tapping my nose. It was an endearing gesture that always made me smile. I adopted Buffy in June, 2015. You can imagine my surprise when she woke me up by gently touching my nose. Wha-? Hey, have you been communing with Persia? I...

A Hunter's Guide to the Habitat and Behaviour of the Red Dot by Jack Campin
I recently got a laser pointer, used for one presentation but mainly to entertain the furries. Ollie is the one who really goes for it. My trigger finger gets tired before he does. I've mainly used it on the bed and the adjoining linen trunk, cushions and wall. He's all over everything like a...

I wish I spoke cat! by Joy[_3_]
There's been a lot of meowing going on lately. I really wish I knew what it meant. Sometimes it's Pickles, clearly wanting me to do something, but I don't know what. Sometimes it's Koala, who occasionally wanders around the house meowing while I'm watching TV in the evening.

Help with Spirit by Lesley Madigan
Okay we suspected she and Bonnie have issues- we put a separate box in the kitchen after we spotted Bonnie blocking access to the bathroom boxes and that seemed to work Spirit goes through phases of liking one place then a week or so later she likes somewhere else. She'll get up to eat and use her...

Nothing to report in Southern Florida by dgk
WInter is over. It was a sort of wet cool winter. It's my first in Florida so I don't have much to go on but everyone tells me that it was a cold winter. Not by my standards but there were a few weeks where it was too cool to hang out by the pool. Now we have a week where every day is going to be...

Spicey laptime memory by Takayuki
Sometimes, Spicey stirs from a dream of a memory, and a memory of a dream reverberates through the rooms as a small, plaintive cry. That is when she feels love in her memory, and the memory of her love draws her into my lap for a cuddle and a purr. She feels a loss that she didn't know was loss,...

She Bit Me! by jmcquown[_2_]
It wasn't her fault. Buffy got very upset because there was a raccoon on the patio and it came right up to the glass door. I didn't see it, it was already dark outside. She's got very sharp eyes. She started hissing and growling and then yowling. I thought it might be a cat. (She truly...

It's Official: Buffy Is an *Only* Cat by jmcquown[_2_]
Yesterday I was in the "den" on the couch reading a book. Buffy had been lounging in the living room. All of a sudden she came bounding into the room, leaped up on the back of the couch and started YOWLING. I looked out the window. Uh oh! There was a black cat with white socks sitting right...
