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...

Colorado cat rescue by Austin Davis
In southeastern New Mexico I captured a tiny wild starving kitten. I kept it for seven days wile I fed it, cleaned it up and calmed it down. It had fleas so bad they jumped off it and ate me alive. I found a no kill shelter in a nearby town and took it there. The cages were small, the woman working...

Cats DO change.. by The New Other Guy
GLyN has never been very interested in human food, other than an occasional sniff. UNTIL recently. For about a year, if he's inside when I make a sandwich, he's been happy to take a slice or 2 of roast beef or even pastrami. But only 1 or 2, never more. And he's TOTALLY polite about it, he...

Ping: Jill - weather by MaryL[_2_]
Jill, how is your weather? There have been reports of nasty weather, including tornadoes, heading your way. I hope things have started to settle down by now. I'm thinking of you and Buffy. MaryL

Flock of Ibisis by dgk
I'm not sure what the plural of Ibis is, but the bird itself is a pretty big (maybe 1 foot) white bird with a long red beak. The big difference between them and the Egret is that the Ibis travels in big packs and the Egrets are mostly solo. Well a big flock of Ibisis walked around my house...

Duffy - update by MaryL[_2_]
Duffy had his first checkup since I started his medication for hyperthyroidism. TED says he is in great shape--"remarkable" for his age. He has gained 6 ounces, which is just what we wanted to see. He has a good appetite and lots of energy. MaryL

Buster's trick by Takayuki
Buster was standing on his tippy-toes and watching curiously as I was getting some clothes out out a dresser drawer. Then, he suddenly jumped right in! I went to get him out, but he somehow got out of reach and disappeared. I'd watched enough Maru videos to guess that he'd gotten into the...
