Marlo progress report by dgk
Marlo went to the vet yesterday and the vet somewhat reluctantly allowed me to remove Marlo's soft Elizabethean coller - the blue dress. He wasn't thrilled with the level of fur regrowth on her abdomen but figured that because the probable cause of the overgrooming was anxiety over the feral at my...

Not one of my better days by Joy[_3_]
This was not one of my better days. I had my physical therapy, which went okay. The therapist made two appointments for next week (I already have one for tomorrow) and said something about starting some different treatment after that. My neck hurts more now than it did earlier, which...

Red dot junkie by Joy[_3_]
I've created a red dot junkie! I was buying some things at the Dollar Tree the other day. While I was standing in the checkout line, I noticed some little laser pointers. I used to have one years ago, and one of my RB cats was crazy about it, so I bought one to see how my current cats would...

Clear Sticky Plastic by jmcquown[_2_]
Buffy gives me fits when I try to clip her claws. I don't really understand it. When I first adopted her she was fine with it. She just sat in my lap, docile as can be. Clip, clip, clip. Easy peasy. I thought wow, this is going to be a breeze! Until she turned back into a cat again and...

Marlo gets (temporarily) rehomed by dgk
I was due to take Marlo to the vet for a progress report on Monday and I was trying to figure out how to deal with going away next week. Marlo needs to wear her Elizasoft Collar and can't eat with the other cats so I've been leaving her in the spare bedroom (and sleeping with her so she isn't...

Tips for cat owners by eric
Many a time have I wanted to beat the **** out of that furry little ******* that always seems to **** me off. Either by taking a nice warm **** on my brand new carpet, or decided to use me as a clawing device. In this small file, I'd like to suggest ways to hurt or **** of the little ****head that...

Post Office Cat by jmcquown[_2_]
Not officially. I went to the Post Office to buy some stamps. Yeah, I know some people who don't have computers so I still do "snail mail" from time to time. :) There was a cute little grey tabby looking for all the world like it was guarding the front door. I said hello to the cat and...

Question Regarding Orange Tabby's by jmcquown[_2_]
Granted, Buffy is only my second cat. She's my first orange tabby. She's about 7 years old (best guess). Question: do orange tabby's get darker as they get older? I ask this because her fur seems to be much darker than it was last year when I adopted her. Looking at old pictures it seems she...

Slight progress by Baby by dgk
Since Marlo has been isolated in the spare bedroom, there has been some slight but clear progress by Baby. She actually follows me into the bathroom, where cat feeding is normally accomplished. Before this I brought her food under the bed or wherever she is hiding. She likes sitting on the...

Another update on Marlo's overgrooming by dgk
I made an appointment with the behavioral specialist, but that isn't until October. Apparently cat behavior can be perplexing - who would have guessed? I took her to her regular vet, but there was a new vet there and she had some interesting ideas. First, we need to get her a urine culture just in...

Cat Five - Rainbow Bridge - August 3, 2016 by [email protected][_2_]
I haven't been here in many years as our ISP stopped carrying Usenet and the Google web format is such a pain. Tonight we had to help our beloved DSH brown tabby girl Cat Five across the Rainbow Bridge and we are in agony. She developed IBD a few years ago and we dealt with that through...

Cat Nicknames? by jmcquown[_2_]
I'm sure we all have nicknames for our cats, outside of their actual names. Buffy is a domestic shorthair, a striped orange tabby. Typical moggie with an 'M' on her forehead. :) Short hair, yes. Thick fur, wow! I've recently taken to calling her Fluffy McBuffypants. Or Buffy McFluffypants. ...

yodel is driving me nuts with the meowing :) by Matt Ferrari[_3_]
How much am i supposed to feed this critter? he jumps on my bed anywhere from 3am to 5am and meows and bumps his nose on my eyes until i get up and feed him. But then he does that every time he hears a can open in the kitchen. I also think he wants to get outside really bad. I'm not willing to...

He's come a long way, baby! by Joy[_3_]
Sometimes I hardly recognize Koala, my little feral cat. When I first got him, he hid most of the time. Once he started coming out where he could be seen, he ran every time I took a step toward him. Eventually he got over that, and then he would let me pet him, but only if he were on the...
