Boyfriend hates Christmas by Christina Websell
Because I go out at about 11 a.m on Christmas Day, return at 3.45 for his tea (very important) spend an hour or so with him, and go again until midnight. The following day, similar except I get home earlier. Having some turkey doesn't make up for it. He's glad when Christmas is over. TBH, so am...

A battle of wills with Tasha by Nik Simpson[_2_]
Last night, Tasha and I engaged in a battle of wills. She wanted to eat her freshly caught mouse in the comfort of a warm house, I want to take it away from her. She tried to sneak it in four times in 30 minutes, without succeeding and promptly went back outside. On the fifth occasion I won,...

The Case of the Missing Thud by Art Shapiro
I had turned in for the night and heard a faint, high-pitched meow. It didn't sound familiar, so my first thought was "it must be Thud." She' s very quiet, aside from having a room-shaking purr when she's around Giovanni, so her meow isn't something I'd recognize. It occurred to me that I...

Barney had to have Surgery to remove a couple inches of his tail by Magic Mood Jeep[_3_]
I haven't been actually posting on here lately, but just yesterday Barney (litter mate to Betty & Bam-Bam, baby brofur to Weeble, Ernie, Mimi & Moe) had to have a couple of inches amputated from his tail. He had always had a 'bent' tip to his tail, but recently it had become bothersome to him (I...

Duffy needs dental work by MaryL[_2_]
Nikki and Selina are doing well, but Duffy has not been eating right and has lost weight. Based on estimates when I first adopted him, he is probably 15-16 years old now. I took him to the vet today, and the good news is that all of his tests (blood work and urinalysis) except one are good. ...

Thud Saves the Day by Art Shapiro
I've had Thud just short of five months. She's a little calico cat who by an improbably set of circumstances came to me from a shelter well out of the area; she was about to be put down because she's so terrified of people and there was no reason anyone would want a cat like that. Well, I'm a...

Persia and the Squirrel by jmcquown[_2_]
Persia kept going over to the corner of the living room. There's a table there with bone china teacups that belonged to my grandmother. (I don't want her leaping and possibly breaking any of the teacups.) A squirrel keeps jumping up on that ledge... I don't know why. But it attracted her...

General cat stuff of the day by Mark Edwards
When I got dressed for my interview, I put on some thin black business socks. After I got home, I took off the dress socks, and put them on the bed. Apache has grbbed them and declared my socks to be hers. Miss Emily came in for awhile. Senyah and I had to talk to someone on the speakerphone,...

Good Brushing Session by jmcquown[_2_]
Persia has always loved to be brushed. We just had a good time for about 10 minutes. She was purring like crazy while I brushed her and kissed the top of her head. I told her how much I love her. She wears a collar with a tag. I remove it when I brush her so she can get some really good...

Big Birds! by jmcquown[_2_]
Again with the cat TV... the temperature is a lovely 74F here in South Carolina. (Sorry, folks who are cold and/or snowed in!) I've got the patio door and windows open. Persia is chattering at some really BIG black crows. They're eating seed I've scattered on the patio. I love to see her...

Correcting the other slave by Mark Edwards
Apache was in the hallway, with her back turned to Senyah, and looking very irritated. It seems that Apache was in the middle of HER bed, when Senyah dropped her clothes on a corner of the bed away from Apache, but without asking Apache's permission. So I picked Apache up (which she normally...

Dot escaped into the cold outside by Takayuki
Dot managed to dash past me into the dark and icy night as I was bringing home groceries! I couldn't stop her because of my larger than usual armful - I had bought drinks and things for my students who are presenting their masters theses this week. At least initially, Dot must've been delighted at...

Domesticating Miss Emily by Mark Edwards
Last night, the temperature was enough above freezing (45F), that Miss Emily wanted to stay outside for the night. By the morning, however, she had changed her mind, and had her face right up against the gap between the screen and the window frame, looking all around for someone to let her...

Thoughtless people are everywhere by jmcquown[_2_]
I can't think of what to call people who simply move and leave their pets behind. If you can't take care of them, call someone! I got this email today from the woman who is charge of the Dataw Island Feline Foundation: "We have a situation that is very serious for a couple of cats on our...

Please welcome Nikki to our group by MaryL[_2_]
I have adopted another kitty. This makes three, and will be my maximum. Her name is Nikki--suggested by my sister for the Christmas season (St. Nicholas). The president of our local Alley Cats Allies called me and asked me to consider adopting her, and it just seemed "right." She was rescued...

Cat TV for Persia by jmcquown[_2_]
For a short while, cat TV (the windows onto the patio) was very active today. Must be due to the drop in temperature. I scattered some seed and refilled the bird bath yesterday. A while ago, Persia alerted me. She started making those chattery noises. :) So I turned to look. There were...

the nurse with an iron paw by Jack Campin
I spent yesterday in bed with labyrinthitis - which means you can't move your head at all or everything spins round for a minute. Chloe decided to help by planting herself full length on my chest and purring point-blank into my face. With occasional visits from Ollie and Marblecake pinioning one...
