Advocate by Lesley Madigan
What is in that stuff?! When we took in Spirit (RB) she had fleas and nothing seemed to help much. Advantage helped a little as did spraying the bed/washing the bedding at 50 degrees but come this year and the warmer weather and once again both cats were scratching like mad and so was I! Last...

Losing Fur by Cheryl[_6_]
Kerry, my newish cat, seems to be lacking fur on part of her belly near the back legs. I only just noticed - she loves being petted, but like many cats, she takes exception to belly-rubs so I hadn't looked at her belly in quite a while. I have an appointment with the vet for her tomorrow - I...

Needy kitty by Joy[_3_]
Koala is very needy this afternoon. He keeps bugging me to pet him. He's come a long way from his feral past, and sometimes comes up on my lap and demands petting when I'm in the living room. However, he generally ignores me when I'm on the computer. However, the events of this week have...

Naturally by Joy[_3_]
I have a three-bedroom, two bath house. I have carpet in the living room and hallway. All the other floors have easy-to-clean vinyl flooring. Naturally, whenever there's a hairball, it's on the carpet. I found one in the hallway when I got up this morning.

Kedi (film about Istanbul cats) by Jack Campin
I saw "Kedi" in Edinburgh tonight. Really enjoyable, lots of beautiful cats and superb aerial photography of Istanbul that shows it in a way I'd never imagined, and it makes a really interesting point. While there are housecats in Istanbul, someone near the end points out that they lose their...

Stepped on Buffy! by jmcquown[_2_]
All morning Buffy has been begging for attention. Scritches and loving words didn't seem to cut it. I decided to Furminate her. :) She loves it. She saw the grooming tool in my hand and started prancing around, all happy. For an indoor shorthair she's got quite a thick undercoat. I have to...

Kitty Kisses by jmcquown[_2_]
Buffy likes to give me kisses on my face early in the morning. It's very sweet. But I'm not ready to wake up at 5AM. Nor 6AM. I love you, but please stop leap frogging over me all night. She's a sweetie, but I have to hide my hand. Because if she can see my fingers she's expecting me to...

Ping Jack: Istanbul cats by Bastette[_3_]
For Jack especially, but for everyone else, too. A friend of mine just sent me this link, about a new documentary that has just been released. It's about the cats of Istanbul and the people who take care of them. It sounds like a great movie, I hope it comes to my area soon. (Apologies to anyone...

Istanbul cat by Jack Campin
This seems to be the guy who had a statue erected to him a few months ago: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=738088749679012&id=508399839314572 (sorry, a Facebook link is all I can find). Does the world-weary seen-it-all cafe-habitue thing rather rather well, doesn't he?

Cruise is almost here by dgk
I'm panicking because I'm going away for two weeks. I never left the brood for that long. I'll have people in of course, but my cats aren't really friendly so even though they know the cat sitters (friends and relatives), they aren't going to be highly visible. They'll be all right, but I'm...

Where is everybody? by Joy[_3_]
This is the first day that there haven't been any posts at all when I opened the group this morning. I'm trying to walk every day, and we're having a heat wave, so I've been walking in various stores. We have a mall here, but it's outdoor, so it's no good for walking when it's hot. Today I...

Link? by Joy[_3_]
Yesterday somebody posted a link to a video of a busker with an audience of kittens. I wanted to send it to my kids, but I forgot to add the link. Now I can't find it. If anybody still has that link, could you post it or email it to me? Thanks. Joy

Cats! by Joy[_3_]
They're just like siblings. A couple of hours ago I heard yowling and snarling as Koala and Pickles went at it. Just now I looked in the living room, and they're snuggled up together under the coffee table.

It's a Buffy-versary! by jmcquown[_2_]
Two years ago today I drove to a house a few blocks away to meet what was described as a very timid orange tabby cat named Buffy. I also met her rambunctious housemate (I think he was a Burmese) named Frankie. Their human had died a week before so they were both up for adoption. I was told...

catnip and mosquitoes by Bastette[_4_]

Marlo getting to be normal by dgk
For a cat anyway. We took her to the vet to check on her hyperthyroid condition and she's in the normal range so the dosage she's getting must be about right. She's even gained af few ounces (that;s probably a few pebbles in British weights) and is about 7.5 lbs. Mom is a bit worried about her,...

summer's here by Jack Campin
It's been quite warm for a few days, with no rain (the garden's drying up). What that's meant for most of our male cats has been: time to hit the great outdoors. Our Ishmael used to spend most of the summer camped out in the bushes across the lane (all of 50 yards away) growling ferociously at...
