Have I ruined this cat introduction? by Brian Link
We have two cats, a mutt Maine Coon lookalike (10yrs) and a bengal (2yrs). The mutt has lived with a total of four different cats uneventfully. The bengal grew from kittenhood with him, and no other cats. These two are best friends, and play and sleep together. We recently adopted a stray mutt,...

Warning: Louis likes to chase cars by Brian Link
On our walk tonight, a car roared by our house. Louis crouched and attempted a lunge, restrained by his harness. Bad news if he ever gets out solo. Who'd have thought that cats would share the stereotypical impulses of dogs? BLink

What a great lesson Louis is providing me.. by Brian Link
I've never had such a needy and high-maintenance cat. He's a Bengal, and though I read that they're high-energy beasts, he is really proving the rule. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy to make accommodations because he's frankly a fantastic kitty. But golly - working to get him to stop spraying,...

My visit with Megan's Menagerie by Brian Link
(Pictures to follow) Since Megan gets a lot of crap from resident psychos here, and I usually express myself so inartfully, I had decided to hold off this post until now, when I saw this latest round of hateful posts. The usual maniacs will weigh in with their invective, but I've seen first hand...

Chloe has some personality issues... by Brian Link
Chloe is my son's girlfriend's cat. Chloe and the girlfriend have moved in with us for her senior year of high school. Leaving that unorthodox situation aside.. Chloe is a six-year-old, front-declawed moggie. She's been living with us for about a month. She has a nice little nest in the...

Cat fine one minute, vicious the next by Brian Link
We've finally finished integrating Chloe into the household. The three cats have established their pecking order, and can co-exist (the boys, Tiger and Louis, retain their strong bond, and they give Chloe a wide berth).. Chloe on the other hand still exhibits some unusual behavior. She will purr...

Squirrel Friend Shock. Lil guy is alive by Brian Link
Okay, I feel really stupid now after getting all friggin worked up. This morning was one of those mornings during mournings when you wake up fine, then suddenly you remember the Horrible Thing that just happened. I went downstairs to start to work, and looked out the front window. A small...

I guess I've been adopted (ie front porch "gifts") by Brian Link
There are a few wandering cats in our neighborhood.. hard to tell who's a stray and who's a poor schmuck whose owner lets them roam. One guy, a ring-tailed tabby, seems to have a particular fondness for us. He's most often seen. Yesterday my wife found a headless baby possum corpse on our...

Louis the ****er update by Brian Link
(backstory - Louis = 3 yr old Bengal, neutered ridiculously early, started marking while we were trying to integrate Henry) We have both diffusers going downstairs, and a litterbox stationed at his favorite spot. We've been using "Icky-poo-off" (iirc) which is advertised to clean the smell of dead...

Options for insulin resistant cat? by Brian Link
A friend has a cat recently diagnosed with diabetes. They've experimented with a vast range of dosages, but even at a very high dose the cat is not improving. Their vet has thrown up his hands and said "nothing more we can do", though the younger vet on staff is suggesting to send the cat to...

Do new cats NEED to fight the residents? by Brian Link
I'm getting some conflicting info from googling this whole "introducing a new cat" thing. There is a viewpoint out there that a new male, in particular, will need to rassle with the current residents in order to establish the new hierarchy. Henry mostly watches the other cats, but he will...

Success Story by Brian Link
Since I've recently arrived here in order to seek help with our new cat, I thought I'd share a short happy ending story.. =) At one point, we had four cats. Howard the adopted stray, Roy the adopted "unwanted" cat, Abbey the queen and Tiger the farm cat. Over time, Howard, Roy and Abbey all...

Note to Self: Cats Neutered Really Early still spray by Brian Link
Louis is a 2yr old Bengal. His breeders, in a fashion which is becoming more acceptable AFAIK, neutered him at an early age (six weeks? can't recall exactly). We've had the stray Henry in our house, in a holding pattern while trying to figure out how to integrate him into the household, for about...

Sorry - just venting (Was: adopting a stray) by Brian Link
Sometimes usenet just seems like a big canyon I can holler into in frustration.. I forget sometimes that there's folks inside getting hollered toward.. I'm not doing anything rash. I'd been awake for about 30 hours when I wrote that and was just ****ed. Sorry if I've alarmed anyone.. =P BLink

Are Bengals Dalmations? by Brian Link
A long time ago I'd heard that Dalmations were in a tough spot - because of the movie "101 Dalmations" purchases were up, though the new owners were ill-prepared for the amount of activity Dalmations require. My grandmother had a neighbor with Dalmations, and those boogers never slept.. barking and...

Bugs Bunny's Wackiness by Brian Link
I mean, look at the guy (rabbit). He lies to get what he wants, impersonates other people, even cross-dresses! All so he can spend his days with no identifiable income source, munching on (possible mind-altering) "vegetables", and teasing upstanding citizens exercising their second amendment...

Tiger's Conjunctivitis.. yes, cats can be allergic to humans.. by Brian Link
Just a quick followup. After my son's girlfriend left town, Tiger's eyes cleared right up. Next time she visits, we'll take a little inventory of her various cremes, rinses and shampoos. BLink

Cheap Cat Tree? by Brian Link
Louis, given his leopard-cat genes, is a climber. He's always on top of the fridge, the buffet, the piano.. and when I take him for walks he spots a tree and CHARGES it. He'll actually get on a branch, then swoop around to hang from it with just his front legs. Maybe he's part gibbon.. Anyway,...

Louis the Bengal's unique howling by Brian Link
Sheesh. I've been chasing Louis around the house in an attempt to record his unique vocalizations. He's like an infant, though, who refuses to say "momma" when you have your folks on the phone. Before I get an aneurism over the topic, does anyone have a link to MP3s with a Bengal shrieking? I've...
