Finger-Lickin' Good by John Kasupski
I held the camera in one hand while offering the other hand to Minnie. I had the blur reduction turned on in the camera because I have enough trouble holding the dadgummed thing still with both hands let alone one, so the color came out a bit wierd, and it came out a little blurry anyway, but I got...

Static Electricity by jmcquown[_2_]
I "furminated" Buffy a few minutes ago. For a domestic short hair, she sure has a really heavy undercoat! She sheds like crazy. The Furminator is an excellent grooming tool. I groom her, put the excess fur in a short lined waste basket. She rolls around and purrs while being...

Belly Rubs by jmcquown[_2_]
John K mentioned he is absolutely not allowed to touch Minnie's belly below her neck/chest. I've never been able to hold a cat with it's belly up, like one would a human baby. Both Persia and Buffy "presented" belly to me. Over the years I've learned if a cat rolls over like that it means...

New Scratcher and a question by jmcquown[_2_]
Most of you know I've had a fight with Buffy's claws and her tearing up the chairs in my living room. (Funny, she was so good about letting me clip them the first couple of times.) She ignores the sisal rope scratcher completely. A neighbor gave me a big wide roll of two-sided sticky tape for...

Millie the hair stylist by Robert Catt
I woke up this morning with a tingling in my scalp. It was our little tabby Millie, washing my hair with her tongue! When she'd finished the job she backed off to admire her work. Thanks, Millie, but I didn't need your services. I just washed my hair yesterday!

Is anybody there? by Joy[_3_]
I haven't seen a post since March 3. Has everybody deserted this newsgroup?

A great idea! by Joy[_3_]
This was posted on another newsgroup: Chicago animal shelter Tree House Human Society dispatched “Morticia,” “Eberkanisis” and “Kevorkian,” to help local resident Paul Nickerson deal with a rodent problem in his garage. Don't bother petting these cats -- they're working About five...

Radio Kitty by John Kasupski
Because of the fact that I'm both a ham radio operator and a cat lover, this item caught my eye in one of the radio-related newsgroups I read: http://bit.ly/2kGkv89 Twice since I got Minnie, I've seen her with her mouth around the power/volume knob on my most frequently used radio receiver as if...

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...
