We're losing the S again by Lesley Madigan
This may be the last time I sign myself as "Slave of the Fabulous Furballs" Yesterday afternoon I noticed Sarsi seemed a bit subdued but when Dreamies were produced she perked up for a bit. She's been moulting heavily and I wondered if perhaps she had a hairball-hence the anti-hairball Dreames. A...

It's okay, go back to sleep by Mark Edwards
I was taking a nap. I was resting my right hand on Apache, and my left hand on Little Boy. All three of us snoozing away. Suddenly, the thunder storms let out several big booms in a row, and something that sounded like a huge celestial growl. Both cats jerked awake, and looked ready to...

Miss Emily's new toy by Mark Edwards
More storms, and Miss Emily wanted back in. After drying her off (and getting an earful of both purrs and complaints), Miss Emily settled down on the bed. I said, "Hey, I have a toy just for you." She played with it for awhile, then placed it on the pillow next to her. Miss Emily LIKES her big...

Fleas by Joy
Koala's paperwork says he was treated for fleas. However, since I brought him home, my ankles are covered with bites. Any suggestions? I'm tempted to buy two flea collars and wear them as ankle bracelets. Joy Joy Unlimited Colorful Crocheted Critters Photos at http://www.PictureTrail.com/joy9

Memories: Persia and the Trip to SC by jmcquown[_2_]
Some of you may remember when Persia was transported from West Tennessee to South Carolina. That was in 2008. She did *not* like riding in the car. Her carrier was belted in in the back seat. It was a 700 mile drive. We took it slow so as not to stress Persia too much. At first John and I...

Persia: Memories the Day After... by jmcquown[_2_]
Fond memories. I'll never forget how this lovely little grey cat http://i57.tinypic.com/qnwiyo.jpg showed up at my back door in Cordova, TN. It was January 6, 2001. Going on dusk and slated to one of the coldest nights on record. She meowed and meowed, demanding to be let inside. I'd never...

I Don't Really Need a Fifth Cat, But... by Art Shapiro
On a whim I answered a CraigsList ad looking for a temporary home for a cat while the owner is in a "sober living" facility. Yesterday we were finally able to cross paths. I had to meet her in the parking lot of a shoe store in Anaheim (California), about 22 miles from my home. She was taking...

Memories: Persia and the Acorn Squash by jmcquown[_2_]
Persia was always curious about the groceries I brought home. Anything in bags must be investigated. ;) One day I brought home a couple of acorn squash. I set the bag down on the kitchen floor. Of course she had to poke her nose in there, just in case it was something for her. Hmmm, what...

Memories: Persia and the Fancy Feast by jmcquown[_2_]
Back when Persia first came to live with me (2001) I'd only give her a can of Fancy Feast (FF) as a treat on Sundays. Don't ask me what my rationale for that was... probably just my wallet. Heh. I kept the FF on the second shelf of the pantry in the kitchen. The shelves were offset to the...

Need lovin' NOW! by Mark Edwards
I let Miss Emily in tonight, and put a saucer of gooshy food in front of her. Sh sniffed at it, meowed at me, and jumped up into my arms. For the next half hour, I was head-butted, rubbed against and purred at. She said she'd had a rough day and just wanted to be loved, cuddled and petted....

Memories: Persia's Great Escape by jmcquown[_2_]
One day, long ago, Persia decided to go on an adventure. A friend had sent me a package. The United Parcel Service guy knocked on the door. I opened the door to retrieve it and Persia took the opportunity to dash outside. I immediately went after her. I called to her. Oh no, she was in the...

Memories: Persia and the Dryer by jmcquown[_2_]
No, she didn't get into the dryer. (whew) In my apartment in Tennessee the clothes washer and clothes dryer were enclosed in a hallway behind dual metal bi-fold doors. Persia, being nosy as can be, decided anything behind closed doors must be interesting. One day she managed to open the doors....

Memories: Persia and the Butterscotch Candy by jmcquown[_2_]
I used to keep some Brach's (a brand) *wrapped* butterscotch candies in a dish on a two-tiered table. One day shortly after she came to live with me I noticed Persia went over, stood on her hind legs and sniffed at the dish. She then gently plucked out a piece of candy out with her...

Something changed for Little Feet by Mark Edwards
I don't know what changed, but it makes me happy. For a long time, Little Feet would literally run away if he put one paw into the bedroom. If he was put on the bed, he ran away even faster. Never mind, sitting on my lap in the bedroom. He always loved to be cuddled, but the bedroom was his...

whimp or gentleman? by Mike Mayers
Tiger and Sweetie Pie each have their own food dish. The other day, Sweetie Pie decided she wanted some of Tiger's food. She went over and swiped Tiger witha paw. He moved away without a word and let her have it.

Purrs for Persia, Please by jmcquown[_2_]
After doing well for quite a long time, Persia has been off her feed the last few days. I've done all sorts of things to entice her. She ate a little bit FF the day before yesterday and had a couple of bites of her kibble. But not what she normally eats. She ignored her FF yesterday and...

Anybody tamed a feral? by Joy
About a week ago I adopted a cat from the shelter. He's a four-month-old neutered male. He's also feral. I've been keeping him isolated for the time being, but I'll be trying an introduction on Monday. He spends all of his time hiding, changing his hiding place whenever I find him. He is...
