6 cats out of 12 - Newcomer, please be patient, gentle. by Kitten
Hello Everyone, I'm new here, thought I'd give it a try - need some cheering up, as much as the cats excell at this, some human comfort would be welcome too. I am crazy about cats, all have been rescues, I can not fault them - the only time I'm unhappy with them is when they fall sick. So, at most...

OT Update 11/13/2018 by jmcquown[_2_]
Thanks for the continued purrs for John, everyone! Like a yo-yo, things have been up and down. The initial surgery included a temporary pacemaker to regulate his heart. Apparently that wasn't doing a sufficient job. Yesterday morning they put in a permanent pacemaker. They have moved him...

Buffy Scared the C*** Out of Me! by jmcquown[_2_]
Not literally. :) I had the audacity to go out and run errands today. I felt sure I'd given Buffy plenty of attention when I got home. We played for a while. Then I turned my attention to the computer, which I haven't done for a few days. She was sitting in my lap, getting scritches. I got...

summer food by Judith Latham
Sootie isn't a big food fan, she eats to live rather than living to eat. So in summer she's out more and doesn't come inside much so misses her meals (although she does sometimes have a takeaway) and she becomes scrawny. This year with the very hot summer we've had I decided to try to give her her...

Uh Oh! by jmcquown[_2_]
I have pet steps next to my bed. I bought them when Persia (RB) was having some trouble leaping up onto the bed. Buffy immediately realized these were steps for *her* to use. Of course! She inherited them. :) The problem is, when I get up in the morning she goes down the pet steps and then...

Update on Mark Edwards by Mishi[_2_]
Hello all, Bridget Baker called Mark and talked to him a bit yesterday. Here is her post: Hey everyone, I had a very brief conversation with Mark Edwards last night. He is hanging in there. Right now he is isolated from the rest of the nursing home because there is evidently some kind of...

Smokey meets the Dawg by Bill Stock[_2_]
The relatives arrived today and brought a couple of their dawgs, because they had a sitter issue. Fortunately the large Bulldog stayed in the car (no it was not hot today), but the miniature BD came inside. It stayed in its crate for the most part, but Smokey stayed in bed, claiming not to know it...

Scardy Cat! (Buffy) by jmcquown[_2_]
I don't really understand. There are usually afternoon thunderstorms starting around May every year. It's typical for this part of South Carolina. Buffy has been through two hurricanes (Matthew and Irma) with me. Wind and rain never bothered her, nor did thunder or lightning. A thunderstorm...

Cats terrible for catching rats by Tigger[_2_]
https://www.wired.com/story/rats-vs-cats/ IN THE SUMMER of 2017, Michael Parsons found the urban rat haven of his dreams: A Waste Management transfer station—aka a literal trash heap, aka rat paradise—in Brooklyn, New York. For nearly two years, the behavioral ecologist and visiting scholar...

Seasons Changing by jmcquown[_2_]
This happens every year. Buffy keeps trying to find the comfy snooze spot in the sun. She follows it around on the floor. Then up onto the sofa. Oh dear, it keeps on moving! Where are the sunny snooze spots? I've said before, I can't do a thing about the earth turning. Fall arrives (not...

Red squirrel experts? by Bill Stock[_2_]
Anyone have these pests? I haven't seen them since I was a kid. The black/grey squirrels are relatively harmless, other than digging up the flower pots and bulbs. But these red squirrels are maniacs, they harass everything in sight and seem to enjoy chewing on the roof. We actually have one living...

Lap cats - or not by joy
For ages, I’ve had cats in my lap while I sat in my recliner and watched TV in the evening. About 90% of the time I’d have both, although occasionally it would be just Pickles, and once in a while just Koala. Usually Pickles would come up first. She wouldn’t come up if Koala was already...

A mystery by joy
My cats Pickles and Koala free feed. I have two small bowls of kibble down at all times. Between those two bowls I have one of their water bowls. Every day when I change the water there is at least one piece of kibble floating in the water, and sometimes two or three. Since it is this...
