Buffy and Emery Boards by jmcquown[_2_]
Emery boards - those cardboard things some people use to keep file their fingernails. For some reason Buffy does not like them! Any time I pick up an emery board to use on my fingernails she jumps up and tries to get it away from me. This is new behaviour. I've never tried to use an emery...

Needy only-Buster by Takayuki
Buster's become a pretty clingy cat in the past year. Maybe it's because he's been an only cat since Dot died over a year ago. Or maybe it's because I've been working from home for the past year. But in either case, he's developed a needier, more demanding purrsonality the past few months. He's...

Buffy has a Bladder Stone by jmcquown[_2_]
She started acting a little "off" on Saturday. She didn't eat much. I later noticed litter box problems, which is a new thing for as long as I've had her. I thought she might be constipated as she appeared to be straining and what little poop output there was was sometimes outside the litter...

Is your cat cheating on you? ;) by Tigger[_2_]
https://www.bbc.com/news/stories-54710400 There's a well-known saying that goes, "You don't choose a cat, a cat chooses you." So what should you do, asks Anisa Subedar, when a persistent pussycat in the neighbourhood decides to adopt you? For me, it began about 18 months ago, one long, hot...

Comfy Buffy (pic) by jmcquown[_2_]
When she's not in my lap pestering me while I'm typing, Buffy often gets comfortable on a decorative pillow on the sofa: https://i.postimg.cc/RF75q7JY/pillow2.jpg Someone painted stripes on my cat! ;) Jill

Buffy is a Lap Cat (link to pic) by jmcquown[_2_]
I've been at the computer a lot the last day or so and Buffy gets on my lap while I'm typing. Demanding attention. Which she gets. I got a pic of her and those beautiful eyes: https://i.postimg.cc/P5WbMr0V/lapcat.jpg Earlier in the morning she was on my lap while I was typing and fell...

The Earth Keeps Turning by jmcquown[_2_]
Buffy, presumeably like most cats, gravitates towards puddles of sunshine. This time of year, she's not a happy camper. The earth keeps turning. Early in the morning and for quite a few hours after the living room has plenty of nice sunny spots for Buffy. That changes very quicky. She gets...

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...

ATLANTA (AP) — In a presidential election year, there’s always a push to get people registered to vote. For one Atlanta family, that push got a little interesting. Ron Tims said he checked his mail Wednesday and found a voter registration application addressed to Cody Tims — his cat, who died...
