Freshening the water bowl by Takayuki
Sometimes, Dot and Buster will sit hopefully next to the water bowl, apparently waiting for it to be refreshed or refilled. I'm sure you've seen your kitties do this too - it's important to keep hydrated, after all! When Dot and Buster ask for water bowl service, I'll typically ask them a bit...

Bob Catt? by Ann
Does anyone know how to contact him? He usually post every day on Facebook but hasn't posted in about 2 weeks. People that are on Mooch's page and follow Bob Catt on his facebook page are trying to find out if he is okay. Ann

Buffy and the Deer by jmcquown[_2_]
You probably know there's a golf green behind my house so I don't have a large back yard area. This doesn't stop deer from wandering around between my yard and the golf course area. Lately they've been frequent visitors out back. They wander around nibbling on clover. Buffy pays little...

Buffy Freaked Out by jmcquown[_2_]
She didn't really freak out. But she did wonder, WTH? I got chilly last night so I pulled the bedspread halfway up. (It's usually folded down at the end of the bed.) She was startled. What's this? Something has changed. Oh dear, I don't think I like this. Sorry, Buffy. As much as I love...

The fence is up! by dgk
I had a fence put in my yard so I can let the cats out. Once the fence was complete (wood, 6' shadowbox) I had to line the top with chicken wire to keep the cats from just climibing out It isn't perfect - there is an Acadia Palm in near the fence and the cats could climb that and get over 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...

Grrrrrr! by jmcquown[_2_]
Have you ever had this happen? Buffy loves a particular brand of dry food. It's the store brand - Publix *premium*. Good quality food. In a side by side comparison with Blue Buffalo brand it ticked all the same boxes. The first ingredient was chicken, second brown rice and it contained...

Nipsy going for an operation by dgk
His left ear canal is blocked by something, maybe cancer, maybe a big polyp. I know that he has something in his lungs based on a month old X-Ray, but he's had issues with his left ear for years and the vet thinks it could be a polyp. Whatever it is, it's blocking us from treating an infection...

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,...

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...

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...

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...

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...
