Ping: MaryL - How is Duffy? by MaryL[_2_]

I Took Her Toy Away by jmcquown[_2_]
Buffy has lots of toys. Glitter balls, mylar balls, golf balls, mousies that rattle, soft toys filled with catnip. You get the picture. Today she was playing with something I didn't recognize... turned out to be a dead, dessicated Anole lizard. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carolina_anole At...

Buffy & Birds - "Cat TV" by jmcquown[_2_]
Purrs for everyone caught in a snowstorm. It's not nearly as cold as in some parts of the Eastern US (no snow here) but it's decidedly Winter temps in southern SC. I've been scattering wild bird seed on the patio the last few days. Buffy simply doesn't seem to care about birds. Persia was...

Duffy has hyperthyroidism by MaryL[_2_]
I have been concerned about Duffy for some time. He has lost weight (but not as much as most cats his age, according to TED) and he walks around howling a very loud, complaining sound--not like the cute "trilling" sound that previously was normal with him. I suspected hyperthyroidism and took...

ancient Chinese domestic cats by Jack Campin
Cats domesticated humans in China 5000 years ago: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/01/160125100118.htm but they were a different species from the modern domestic cat (as found everywhere, including China). Look them up: Prionailurus bengalensis. Pretty little...

US blizzard by Jack Campin
This looks like being a bad one. Good luck, everybody and everyfurry affected. (A friend of mine in eastern Pennsylvania ended up acquiring a litter of kittens after a somewhat smaller storm a few years ago - they appeared from nowhere sheltering under her...

Mouse Mining by Jack Campin
We just had a few inches of snow. Ollie doesn't often get to see it and he's decided he likes it. Leaping from one spot in the garden to another and digging deep into it each time as if there *has* to be something edible underneath - no luck yet. However, he's also decided that each shift in the...

Clipping Claws by jmcquown[_2_]
Oh, Buffy made it seem so easy! When I first adopted her she'd just sit in my lap and let me clip, clip, clip. Front and back. It was okay the second time around, too. Next attempt, uh uh, no way, reorrrw!! Buffy has never really learned to retract those needle-sharp instruments. A couple...

A Cat up for Adoption by jmcquown[_2_]
Got this message on the Dataw Net yesterday. There's a woman who moved to Dataw from Massachusetts with a Norwegian Forest Cat named Victor. Then she left Dataw and moved with Victor to Beaufort. (That's the "big town" near here. Heh.) Now suddenly she's announced she's moving "out west" next...

I hope this works by jmcquown[_2_]
If it does, it looks like NIN won't be getting my business next year. They basically blew my request for help off which is too bad because they had been so good for so many years. Hug a kitty! I'll try to catch up if I find out news.eternal-september.org works (and it looks as if it...

Buffy is Weird by jmcquown[_2_]
Okay, all cats are weird. ;) Buffy absolutely *hates* it if I watch videos on the computer. She'll snap right out of a sound sleep and come running. She starts trying to climb up the back of my chair to get my attention. Oddly, she does not even notice if I turn on the television. I don't...

A New Buffy Picture by jmcquown[_2_]
She hopped up on the vary narrow window sill. I wouldn't actually call it a sill, it's more like decorative trim. But whatever. http://i65.tinypic.com/wrgrdg.jpg I snapped a picture. I had no idea why she got up there until I looked at the picture. Notice the squirrel off in the background?...

Nice Christmas day by Christina Websell
Spent a lovely day at my brother's house. Much better now the children are 15, 13 and 11.:-) It's always my job to carve the turkey. Dinner was great (always a bit cold, too much to serve at once) I didn't leave Boyfie for long. I went at 12.30 and came back to feed him at 4 and stayed with him...

Happy Holidays, Everyone! by Jill McQuown
I hope everyone is enjoying whatever holiday they celebrate this season. :) I'm posting via Google Groups because Thunderbird started giving me problems when trying to hit the NIN server for newsgroups. I've been fussing with T-Bird issues for a week. Email didn't work for a while, either. ...
