Buffy and the Whiffle Ball by jmcquown[_2_]
I've mentioned Buffy loves golf balls. She bats them all over the living room. They've got some heft to them. Every once in a while I give her a bright orange, same sized whiffle ball. When she bats at it it goes very fast, sometimes flying! Gives her a nice workout chasing it around the...

Buffy and the Television by jmcquown[_2_]
Buffy has *never* paid any attention to television. But the other day I was flipping through channels and ran into a program with a bunch of really cute cats. Buffy was next to me on the couch. She suddenly sat up and stared at the screen. Her tail puffed up about three times normal size...

Kerry (2015-August 20, 2020) by Cheryl[_5_]
Kerry went to the Bridge very unexpectedly today. She was a black cat who arrived from the local humane society in 2016, aged about a year. Although I often said she was a bit neurotic because of her fur-chewing habit, she was actually a very friendly and loving cat who got along with everyone...

Here's Your Robe... by jmcquown[_2_]
I suffer from occasional bouts of insomnia. One night last week I felt like I really hadn't gotten into a sound sleep until just before daybreak. Tossed and turned all night. Around 7AM Buffy started meowing, trying to make me get up. Oh no, I groaned. "Sleepy-bye". She has dry kibble and...

Odd Smokey behavior by Bill Stock[_2_]
Wow, it's dead in here, just Jill and I. :-) Smokey always wants a hug when I feed her in the morning before she eats. I'd say this is gratitude, but Smokey is all about Smokey. She doesn't suck up for food, she just screams at me. She screams for everything, hugs, her bath, food, the elevator,...

My Buffy has gone by jmcquown[_3_]
I am heartbroken. I've always kept Buffy indoors, but with the way she looks out the window, I thought I'd treat her to being in my back yard. At first, everything was fine. Buffy hesitantly walked to about the middle of the yard and sat down. She looked back at me and I smiled lovingly....

Sadly, Daisy-chan passed by cshenk
Sorry, I read here but silently most of the time. Daisy-chan passed at age (assumed) 23 this past weekend. Those of you who also read RPCC, knew her well.

Buffy-Versary by jmcquown[_2_]
I always seem to miss the date. It was on June 2, 2015 I adopted Buffy but for some reason my brain always thinks it was June 5th or 6th. Anyway, it's been five years since my fluffy orange stripey girl came to live with me. :) Jill

Cats Are Cleanly - This Can Help Stop Litter Box Problems by Justin Jason
The most common reason why cats wind up sitting in a cage at an animal shelter is because they refuse to use the litter box. Cat urine has a very strong odor, and getting it out of fabric or even removing the smell entirely from hard surfaces can be difficult. And, cats have been known not only to...

Hi folks! How's everyone doing with this global pandemic? I've got no problem staying at home, playing with Buffy. We had a great play session with a fishing wand toy. Chasing it all over the place and jumping through her kitty barrel. As usual, in the middle of the living room she gathered...

Enjoying store visiting cats by Mahoney,Dan
After Nancy and I took Milton in on a fostering basis we decided that we would see if he could be trained to be a leash cat. Nancy made him a custom walking jacket. We took him in to the back yard a couple times with Ranger and he did really well. So when we next had to go to the pet supply...
