The Furminator by jmcquown[_2_]
Nope, I'm not spamming and I don't get paid for this. But I really like this cat grooming tool. Buffy is a moggie, an American Short Hair. Short hair? Sure. But she has a very thick, heavy coat. She sheds constantly. Pet her, run your hand across her back, fur comes wafting off. ...

Yowling! by jmcquown[_2_]
It must have been around 4AM, I was awakened by Buffy yowling her head off in the living room. Chances are she spotted a raccoon on the patio. The first time I heard her yowl like that it scared me. This time I was mostly annoyed because I was sleeping really well for a change. Buffy, it's...

Spicey requests your attention by Takayuki
Spicey was in a particularly playful mood, and was hopping and scrabbling and chasing the other cats. Dot and Buster scurried out of the way as Spicey pounced at them and did a little jig. All of a sudden, I felt claws digging into my calf. "OW!!!" I said in surprise and pain. I turned to see...

Sunshine by jmcquown[_2_]
Do all cats love puddles of sunshine? I've only ever been owned by two cats. Both Persia (RB) and Buffy seem to follow the sun around. The front of my house faces west. In the morning the sun shines in through big glass windows at the back. Buffy loves to bask in a puddle of sunshine in the...

Marlo licking off her hair by dgk
I noticed Marlo was grooming a lot. She's pretty fat and has a lot of places to groom, but I noticed that her belly was looking pretty pink, as in not much hair. And the inside of her back legs are looking bare. Obviously we need a trip to the vet.

Catnipped's new cat tree by Karen AKA Kajikit
I can't find the thread again, so I'll have to post seperately... I just watched the video of your furry friends exploring their new cat tree. How cute! It looks like the boys are going to grow up to be VERY big cats (either that or Jesse is remarkably small...) Looks like they love that new tree!...

Cats! by Joy[_3_]
Each cat, and each combination of cats, causes things to change. They have changed things, both regarding treats and canned food. For years I’ve been giving two kinds of treats. One kind is really just Friskies, and the other is the real treats. Pickles and Waffles(RB) figured out that the...

Surprise! by jmcquown[_2_]
Yesterday Buffy had a case of the zoomies. Then it got really quiet I went looking for her. I didn't see her in any of her usual snooze spots. I went to use my "litter box". Buffy came leaping out from behind the shower curtain. "Hi!" LOL This is about the third time she's done this. I...

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...
