Wild Minks in South Carolina by jmcquown[_2_]
In the last week there have been a number of sightings of wild minks on the island where I live. I've lived here for nine years and had no idea minks were indigenous critters. Alligators, snakes, raccoons, oppossums, river otters, marsh rats (tiny little benign creatures) yes. Minks,...

Advice Shamelessly Solicited by John Kasupski
Minnie is going to the vet tomorrow to be spayed, get her shots, and be microchipped. It'll be her first time ever going to a vet so I don't expect her to be happy about it. I hope she won't hate me forever after we get home. She'll get plenty of attention if she'll tolerate it, and I won't be too...

Sleeping Habits and Kitty Kisses by jmcquown[_2_]
Buffy curls up next to me when I go to sleep. That's nice. When I turn over, she feels she has to leap over me and curl up on the other side. It seems she has to be on the same side of the bed I'm facing. I love that she wants to sleep next to me. Truly! But it's bad enough I'm rather...

On the subject of litterbox habits... by jmcquown[_2_]
Is your cat delicate or a digger? (Those of you with multiple cats/boxes will likely have varying answers.) Sometimes I think Buffy is trying to dig her way to China! Buffy's litterbox, like her predecessor Persia, is in the master bath where the toilet and the tub are located. (The...

Pilling The Cat Revisited by John Kasupski
The subject of pilling a cat came up recently in another thread, and it got me to thinking about this: If you and your cat are sitting in the living room and you get up off the couch to go out to the kitchen and feed your cat, the cat will already be out in the kitchen waiting next to the food...

How to weigh a cat by Tigger[_2_]
There is the obvious way, get on the scales with and without holding the cat, or... When they're hungry, have some food handy, plae the scales by it, then place the cat on the scales. Mine is so intent on the food I get a good reading (my scales read off in .2 of a pound). I'm also able to trim...

How do you put a cat on a diet? by jmcquown[_2_]
Buffy is a tad plump. We have a lot of play time (fishing wand toy, I toss golf balls and glitter balls and she chases them). She also runs around playing all by herself with the golf balls. She generally gets a half a can of Sheba pate a day. I dole out 1/4 cup dry kibble (Purina One...

Another Buffy Photo by jmcquown[_2_]
After having a bit of wet food this morning she decided it would be nice to relax in the sunshine. https://s23.postimg.org/itbtvko3f/buffy_pillow.jpg That "pillow" is a furry ca toy. She mostly ignores it but it seemed like a good place for her to lay her head. :) Jill

Spoiling My Cat By Doing Nothing by John Kasupski
Back on Halloween 2016, the first post I read upon subscribing to this newsgroup was posted by Joy, who told us about wanting to strip her bed to wash the sheets only to find one or both of her cats sleeping on the bed every time she looked and deciding to wait. Right now, I know just how she...

Post-RTFM Minnie Picture by John Kasupski
Here's a picture of Minnie after I found and read the manual for my camera to remember how set it to shoot low-light scenes without using the flash. https://s29.postimg.org/a2mwngg3b/fuzzy.jpg Got her looking right up at me. It's a little fuzzy. I failed to hold the camera perfectly still because...

And another pic by jmcquown[_2_]
Buffy likes to jump on the rather narrow decorative trim work along the corner of the window behind my desk. It's not wide enough for a perch. Today she discovered she could get behind the stretchy attached from ceiling to floor drapery pull... and use it to support herself and not fall....

Minnie Is Almost 7 Months Old by John Kasupski
Not a new picture, but... https://s30.postimg.org/dm71v44n5/DSC00989.jpg ....in that photo, Minnie is sitting at the end of the kitchen counter on that side of my kitchen. See that cabinet door on the left? I took a measuring tape out there yesterday. The bottom edge of the door is exactly five...

The Water Incident - And More by John Kasupski
As any cat lover knows, our feline friends must always have access to fresh water. Some of us, however, have cats whose opinion of just what qualifies as "fresh" and what doesn't differs from that of others. When I first got Minnie, she'd often try to jump up onto the kitchen counter next to the...

Minnie Got Shot 2x This Morning... by John Kasupski
....with a Sony Cybershot 7.2 megapixel DSC-S700 digital camera. This wasn't a planned photoshoot, and I also need to re-read the manual to remember how to crank the lens up to ISO-1000 and turn the flash off so she won't have the devil in her eyes on every...

Don't Let Your Cat See This by John Kasupski
The use of teeth to avoid a bath has probably always been in your cat's bag of tricks...it's the idea of refusing to let go you don't want him or her to learn. http://buffalonews.com/2017/01/21/firefighters-stumped-snake-bite-call-python-hangs-onto-victims-hand/ John D. Kasupski Niagara Falls, NY

I Am An Ailurophile...I Guess shrug by John Kasupski
I was web-surfing early this afternoon and ran across a web page full of cat facts. I won't steal them all, but I can't resist sharing a few of them. My own comments appear in parentheses. "Sir Isaac Newton is not only credited with the laws of gravity but is also credited with inventing the cat...

The mission of a cat ... by Joy[_3_]
is to keep his or her human(s) guessing. When I got Koala, I had a cat that had to have canned food morning and evening, in spite of the fact that there's kibble out all the time. He immediately decided that he had to have it too. A few months ago he changed his demands to "canned food every...

Kitten Converts Reluctant Owner by John Kasupski
In another thread, I promised (or threatened, depending on your point of view) to tell the story of how my relatively new kitten Minnie changed my mind about not really wanting a pet - so, here goes... Why didn't I want another pet at the time? About fifteen years ago, I had a cat named Goldie, a...
