Good news and bad news (not entirely OT) by Christina Websell
My car, Mr F, has passed his MoT test. This means I have him for another year. I can't get to the vet without a car so that's the good news. The bad news is that the 4,500 houses on the fields behind my house are now going ahead. We've all been fighting it for years, but as usual, the council...

Shut Up, Buffy! by jmcquown[_2_]
First time I've encountered this with Buffy. I don't know what got into her last night. We were asleep. She was on the bed next to me. At around 1AM she started meowing. I immediately woke up and asked, "What's wrong, girl?" I gave her some scritches and she settled down again. No sooner...

Duffy is getting eye medication by MaryL[_2_]
Isn't this ironic? My little Duffy is blind, but he has developed an eye allergy that causes drainage. Unlike many blind cats, he has never had to have his eyes removed or sewn shut. Fortunately, the allergy does not seem to bother him, but he has a prescription to have two drops in each eye...

Buffy the Tail-Wagger by jmcquown[_2_]
Honestly, I've never encountered a cat that routinely wags its tail like a dog. I'm not talking tail lashing like when a cat is upset, angry or stalking something. I call her Miss Flippy Tail. :) I have to say, I really lucked out with this sweet orange stripey girl. She's so incredibly...

Yesterday with Lennie by Christina Websell
well we had a three or 4 mile walk and he was glad to get into his bed back home. His mummy said to me "i will be forever in your debt" I said "don't be so ridiculous, don't say that." She said that had she known that would become so disabled she would never had had him. But she did and she...

I Sat on My Cat! by jmcquown[_2_]
Buffy's fine. :) The weather has been delightful for a few days, temps in the 70's, windows open. I was on the couch reading and had a light throw over my legs. Buffy was on the back of the couch looking out the window. I got up to do something. Little did I know Buffy had decided to curl...

This is getting silly by Christina Websell
Boyfriend was asleep on my knee yesterday afternoon when he decided he wanted to go upstairs to his bedroom, which was fine by me but he came back downstairs after a few minutes. I thought he'd changed his mind but when I next visited the bathroom I discovered that he'd pooed in the bath. ...

Scarlett and Bonnie News by Cheryl[_3_]
Hi guys. Rarely get here lately. First, Scarlett had a dental today with 2 teeth extracted. She's STILL out of it from the anesthesia. Not sure how tonight is going to go, and I'll have to feed everyone separately to keep her away from dry food for 2 weeks. She came to me as a kitten with some...

Buffy's Closet Caper by jmcquown[_2_]
I have a cousin I haven't seen since I was a little girl. He's about 7 years older than I am and lives on the west coast of the US in the state of Washington. I haven't seen him since I was about 9 years old but we've kept in touch. I'm the only one who has kept touch with that branch of the...

Ping: Jill - weather by MaryL[_2_]
Jill, how are things in your area? I saw your earlier messages that said you have not had flooding, but recent weather reports look bad. Please let us know how you are. I'm wishing the best for you. Years ago, we had 13 inches of rain in 12 hours, and the flooding was bad. Some mobile homes...

Your cat doesn’t love you: science by J[_3_]
http://news.nationalpost.com/news/world/your-cat-doesnt-love-you-science Rudyard Kipling was right. Cats really do walk by themselves, and do not need their owners to feel secure and safe, a study has shown. Although absent owners might worry that their pet is pining, in fact, cats show no sign...

Duffy's visit to the vet by MaryL[_2_]
I took Duffy to see TED for an evaluation on Monday. Everything looks good except that he needed to have a cyst removed from his shoulder. I had the cyst examined in January. At that time, I was told to keep an eye on it and return to the veterinary clinic if it grew in size. It did grow,...
