Nipsy gets a very bad report by dgk
He's been scratching his right ear a lot. It's happened before and he's had some infection so I figured that this seemed to be a repeat performance. But the vet said that his heart murrmur has gotten worse, and there is a large growth in his ear that is causing the infection. He's 16, so maybe the...

A stuck kitty by Takayuki
When I was getting out of the shower yesterday, I heard a repeated, throaty "Owwwwwww". I wasn't concerned, as it sounded like what Buster occasionally does while patrolling the hallways. But then, I noticed that it was coming from where my desk was, which was odd, because that's one of Buster's...

Duffy has gone to the Bridge (Oct. 16, 2017) by MaryL
I am heartbroken to report that my wonderful Duffy has gone to the Bridge. He had a wonderful report at his last check-up a month ago, and his health failure came on remarkably fast. My sister is visiting from Ohio, and he was happy and playful when we left for dinner yesterday. He had jumped...

Buffy with Strangers by jmcquown[_2_]
You just never know what Buffy might do. Today I was expecting a service person. I have a contract for the HVAC unit, they clean it out and change the filters. When the guy arrived, Buffy ran to the front door, sat down and meowed at him. Hello! Then she flopped over, rolled on her back,...

Buffy on the sofa by jmcquown[_2_]
Buffy rarely snoozes on the sofa in the living room. I took a pic of her looking very comfy a few days ago: https://s1.postimg.org/5ey0qfvhun/buffy_sofa.jpg Here's a funny memory. When I brought my cat Persia (RB 2014) here my mother insisted I get a sheet out of the closet and cover the sofa...

my Chloe is dying by Jack Campin
19 years old, long-term thyroid problem which we've been treating, but she's been getting steadily thinner and weaker and now she can hardly walk. Almost no interest in food - drinks a lot, including Whiskas "cat milk" formula which is about her only real source of nutrition now. She spent years...

A big Ooops! by jmcquown[_2_]
I'm not fond of being scratched, however inadvertently. Since Buffy won't let me trim her nails I've taken to putting a folded towel across my lap when she wants to sit on me when I'm typing. After a play session with her earlier I wanted to check email and newsgroups. I put the towel in my...

cat and human reunited after the Grenfell fire by Jack Campin
I can sort of understand this - when we had a serious fire and had to get out because of the smoke, it took nearly a week before we saw our four cats again. They were all huddled behind the fridge. But the Grenfell fire was vastly...

Jellicle Ball, 2017 by cshenk
Hi all! Sometime very long back, back enough that no one remaining really remembers it except as historical trivia, Rec.pets.cats.community (RPCC) and this group split off. The two groups are very different now. RPCC is very much a storyboard' group now where pet owners post 'as' their pets. ...

Okey Doke... I tried Facebook by jmcquown[_2_]
Sorry, I can't stand it. Even with the "add on" Mishi suggested, it's an entirely too busy interface. I just want to talk to people I know and share stories and pics of our cats. I don't want to have to block ads and newsfeeds and all sorts of other crap and who is friends with who else. ...

Marlo's visit to my place by dgk
While Irma had many bad inpacts, it was sort of interesting to see what Malro thought of visitihg her old home. Just to bring everyone up to date, Marlo was my cat (along with Scooter and Nipsy) but in the move down to Florida I picked up a semi-feral named Baby. Apparently Marlo had some beef with...

Buffy Finally Noticed the Hummingbirds! by jmcquown[_2_]
Since Hurricane Irma blew through there is a lot of competition at the hummingbird feeder. Buffy never really paid any attention to them before. Today, they were battling around the feeder. She hopped up on the back of the couch and sat there, fascinated, as they zoomed around fighting each...

Reporting from a Hurricane by jmcquown[_2_]
Buffy and I are fine. The power has blinked on and off a few times. The winds are gusting to about 50 MPH and it's raining a lot. A stubborn little hummingbird insists on coming around so I hung her feeder back out. I figured if she can brave the storm she deserves to eat. :) I even saw her...

Ping: dgk! by jmcquown[_2_]
Are you planning to evacuate for Hurricane Irma? Your mother and Marlo with her along with Baby and all the cats? There are people from Florida already moving, booking motels and hotels (pet friendly) and travelling well ahead of the hurricane. It hasn't even hit the States yet. Got any...

Going away for a week by dgk
I'm heading off to a small family reunion - just the immediate family and kids and spouses and cousins and such. Naturally I'm panicking over leaving the brood, but my neighbor Judy will do a fine job baby sitting. She's also taking car of Marlo over at my mom's house. I won't have newsgroup acess...

Sorry, can't do Facebook by jmcquown[_2_]
I just don't like the interface. I haven't deactivated my account (yet) and might check for posts there on rpca from time to time but as a regular form of communication I simply don't like it. Jill

Cat grass - tastier than cobwebs! by Takayuki
When I was at a friend's house last week, I noticed that she had a large, but slightly wilted bunch of grass sitting on a bench. I asked her if it was cat grass, and it was! But unfortunately, she said that her cat showed no interest in it, which is why she'd stopped bothering to water it. She...

Getting a quote for a fence by dgk
I don't want a fence, but I need some way to keep my cats from straying and I"d like to start letting them out. Around $2300. That's two 25 foot fences with a 4' gate in each one. I was checking on cat containment systems but putting together a decent one would be around $700 and wouldn't allow...
