Wailing technique change by Judith Latham
When she wanted to come back inside, Sootie has always sat on the step outside our patio door and if we haven't noticed wailed to let us know. which we don't hear if we've gone upstairs already, even with the window open. During the warmer weather we've had the window open and we have heard...

A bit about Trixie by Helen Wheels
Trixie, my older cat, is slowly getting used to sharing her house with a younger cat. She was six years old when I adopted her from the local shelter, and she's been with me for two years now. I've no idea how she ended up in the shelter. In summer she's a medium-haired stripey tabby, greyish...

Ravenous kitties by Dan Mahoney[_2_]
We feed our kitties both dry food and wet food. We leave dry food down so they can graze (but have to put it in a puzzle bowl to keep Ranger from scarfing it down too fast and puking), and I set out three dishes of wet food for breakfast and for dinner. A couple months ago I noticed that Sammy had...

Buffy found a new place to sit by jmcquown[_2_]
She climbed up on the back of my desk chair while I was sitting in it. I grabbed the camera and voila! https://i.postimg.cc/wjSLbXMk/buffyperch.jpg I guess this is what it would look like if cats could take "selfies". ;) Jill

Now that Helen and Dan have come back... by jmcquown[_2_]
everyone has left the newsgroup? I could keep constantly talking about Buffy but I sure don't like feeling like I'm talking to myself. Anyone got any anecdotes to share? Cats haven't stopped being amusing in the last few years, have they? Jill

A slight Ooops by jmcquown[_2_]
I have been doing some house cleaning today. Got out the big sucky monster, which of course Buffy hates. She ran and hid. I picked up her little cushy pyramid bed and took out out front. To shake off the dust (her fur) and clean out the inside. More fur. She sheds terribly, despite...

Fun With Buffy by jmcquown[_2_]
I always know when she wants to play because she starts batting golf balls around. I sometimes rue the day I ever gave her a golf ball to play with. There are cat toys all over my living room. A couple of plush toys filled with catnip (Velcro closures, refillable. I store dried catnip in...

Anyone hear from Joy? by jmcquown[_2_]
I haven't seen a post from her in quite a while and am hoping she went to the Facebook group instead. Jill

Floki is getting very grabby by Helen Wheels
Floki the kitten's going through a grabby stage now. Whatever I've got in my hand, he wants it and grabs it with his little paw if he can. I want the plate, he says. I want the cup. I want the mop, the pen, that pair of scissors. I want your headphones, your socks, your pen. And especially, if...

Black water animal? by Bill Stock[_2_]
Sorry, for being away so long, but I've been in the bush. OK, not really, but the creek trail is as close as I get. Anyway, I was walking over on of the many pedestrian brides along the creek trail and I spotted two small black creatures playing in the water next to a rock. I did not stop to take...

Sudden Improvement in Relationship by Cheryl[_5_]
I have mentioned before about the trials and tribulations of introducing Kerry to the resident ruler of the apartment, Cinnamon. I brought Kerry home in June of 2016, and although Cinnamon had tolerated the late Sam, she and Kerry fought. There was the time Cinnamon lived under the loveseat in...

Lynxie and Annie by [email protected]
When I got Lynxie in 2002, this newsgroup was a source of support for me as a new cat owner. I posted and shared his photos and stories. As the popularity of Usenet fizzled out, I drifted away. But then I searched today and noticed the newsgroup was still around, just very slow. If anyone from...

Buffy and the Steps (pics) by jmcquown[_2_]
I did a little something unusual today. I have some carpeted pet steps in the window in the corner of my dining room. Buffy likes to sit and look out that window. Oh, but the earth turned and the sun came in through the larger window. I opened the blinds and moved the cat steps. Got some...

Forgot to post about Buffy's Anniversary by jmcquown[_2_]
On June 2, 2015, I adopted Buffy. Wow, where did the time go? She went from being a timid cat who expected another cat to jump out at any minute and not let her eat to a confident, loving, engaging cat. Playing with toys and very much out of her shell in just a matter of a day or two. She...

Lovely Eyes by jmcquown[_2_]
In the early morning when I start to wake up, Buffy sits up and stares at me. The room is fairly dark due to the window blinds. But there is a skylight over the sink in the adjoining bathroom so there the room is not dark. In that light, Buffy's pupils are *huge*. She looks like one of...

The Raccoon and the Possum by Bill Stock[_2_]
I've mentioned that we leave food out for a couple of strays and the wildlife sometimes gets into it. But the other night I turned on the light and I see a large Raccoon and a Possum at the same food. The Possum left as soon as I turned the light on, but he didn't exactly run away either. I thought...
