OT Stupid Tech Guy or Strangers in your Home when you have Cats by Kitten
Every year, some things in the house get inspected, it's regulation. First thing that bugged me, the guy decided on our appointment all by himself, I had no notice, he just banged on the wooden shutters, rang the bell as if to wake the dead and demanded to be let in. Secondly, he looked at me as...

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...

Skwirrel by Bill Stock[_2_]
I was looking out the back door yesterday and there was a black squirrel splayed out on the deck sunning itself. I was surprised by how relaxed it looked. We don't have red squirrels here, just the larger black and grey squirrels. But this year we actually have a red squirrel and it's a real runt....

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...

Babou's my peeping tom by Kitten
Babou's motto. Very much like wanting cuddles while I was carrying a tray to the kitchen or doing the dishes, Babou's wishes were better anticipated. She didn't like not being with me, not seeing me, the closer the better and up to a point you could say I was the same. And shower time was no...

Smokey and Rat must have been soul sisters. by Kitten
And shared secrets. Unless there's a special telepathic bond for kitties who aren't all there. Rat suffered from epilepsy for most of the 15 years she gifted us with her presence. We took every measure possible to prevent her seizures, they could be extremely violent and at the very beginning so...

Can someone tell Smokey, cats don't like bafs! by Bill Stock[_2_]
Smokey is the sole remaining kitty from our original clowder, but she is getting up in age. Between her arthritis, her laziness and her belly she finds it hard to wash some of her parts. Combined with her loose stools this has led to a sticky/stinky cat. But she still has all of her marbles and she...

I *need* a Kitten but first... by Kitten
But first, I have to take care of something for Kitten. He's short and fat, which means some areas are hard to reach to clean by himself, bless him. Kitten's bedtime preferences involves such closeness though, I insist on a dingleberry-free Kitten's bum. No, really, I do. No one wants to wake up...

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...

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...

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...

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...
