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,...

Looking after Lennie (Ot) by Christina Websell
It can be difficult. It seems to be up to me. It's not something I wanted to do when I volunteered to walk him when his usual dog walker broke her ankle. I thought I would just walk him occasionally, but it soon became clear that his mum needed help with his health. It's not something her...

A New Simon's Cat by jmcquown[_2_]
I love this guy (and his cats!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpCl5O6tTv8&feature=em-subs_digest-g The mistake he made was leaving the fish on the table rather than put it in the cat carrier. The day I brought Buffy home, putting a small amount of gooshy food on a plate IN the carrier was...

Boyfie's special tree by Christina Websell
Boyfie usually accompanies me down the garden to feed the chickens every morning to *help* me. On the way back he always goes to a particular tree and sharpens his front claws on the trunk. Every single day. I often think about Jill when he does this;-) I never clip his claws as I think he...

Buffy and The Lizard by jmcquown[_2_]
Actually, both of us and the lizard. In the seven years I've lived here I've never had a lizard inside my house. There's a plastic box of music CD's under a small table against my dining room wall. Buffy was paying particular attention to it for some reason. I was sitting here reading email...

Buffy Loves the Furminator by jmcquown[_2_]
Buffy sheds a lot. She absolutely loves the Furminator. We just had a good grooming session with it and removed a lot of fur. She was thrilled. She was rolling around, presenting each side to me. Then she wanted me to use it to scratch her back all the way down to her tail. It must feel...

Strange days in SoCal by The New Other Guy
VERY strange. Hit 99 degrees here today, previous record was 87. Oddly enough, on Sept. 9th, EXACT same record temp was reached, AND exact same previous record was broken! Strangest thing was that I had a cat AND a dog inside with me today.

A Week of Surprises for Buffy by jmcquown[_2_]
First Buffy discovered there is a magic set of steps that pull down from the ceiling. (The air conditioning guy was here on Monday and the disappearing steps to the attic seem to have left her puzzled.) When I adopted Buffy it was already hot and humid outside so the AC was running. The house...

Boyfie has his own toilet paper! by Christina Websell
Well, I got fed up with using my nice stuff to pick up the bath poo, so I bought some really cheap stuff just for him. I've only had to use the cheap stuff once as he hasn't pooed in the bath for 4 days (!) When I was overfeeding him for weight gain, lasting out overnight was unlikely, but now...

Got a Sweet Kitty Kiss by jmcquown[_2_]
Buffy gives me kitty kisses all the time. But never before on my face. It was about time to wake up this morning. She had been sleeping next to me. But she crept up next my face, purred in my ear, then licked my cheek! She's never done that before. Awwww! How sweet! Of course it's a ruse...

First of many? by Lesley Madigan
Aged 11 months and 4 days- I got in tonight and fed the cats....WHOA! Spirit regards the kitchen windowsill as her throne but she isn't there and even stranger she didn't appear at dinner time. This is Spirit - I mean we nicknamed Bonnie "The Gannet" for her appetite and when I feed the pair of...

Buffy, get off my sweater! by jmcquown[_2_]
As most of you know, I'm new to being owned by a fully clawed cat. I'm new to being owned by Buffy. I have a sweater hanging on the back of my desk chair. No reason, really. It doesn't get cold here. Buffy is perfectly welcome to sit in my lap when I'm sitting in this chair and even when...

Buffy Needs to Go on a Diet by jmcquown[_2_]
I weighed her yesterday. She weighs 12 lbs. That's up from 10 lbs. a couple of months ago. She's getting "fluffy"! Obviously she's not starving. We had a really good play session yesterday. In fact, we do it every day. She's got a wand toy with a mousie on the end of it. She leaps and...

Harri Roadcat update - from Dan by Mishi[_2_]
Harri Roadcat update... Please forgive me if I post information I've posted before, as I don't remember exactly how much I've mentioned before. On our latest vet visit (Sunday evening) we learned that Harri's anemia is a little worse than it had been before. Since I had felt a lump in her abdomen...

A note to Tweed by Charleen Welton
I was so glad to read your post and hear about Boyfie(sp). I read through the posts and was so glad that I found you all (I just talk Southern as I married a Southern man, he has not yet figured how to speak Bostonian!) We also had our yard and street dug up recently to put in sidewalks; that's a...

Buffy's Fur Sparkles by jmcquown[_2_]
Buffy was laying on her back in a puddle of sunshine and I was giving her scritches around her face and chin and gently touching her belly. That's when I noticed the white tips on her fur seem to sparkle like stars. Persia was a grey cat. She had beautiful soft fur but it didn't reflect the...
