Reporting from a Hurricane by jmcquown[_2_]
Buffy and I are fine. The power has blinked on and off a few times. The winds are gusting to about 50 MPH and it's raining a lot. A stubborn little hummingbird insists on coming around so I hung her feeder back out. I figured if she can brave the storm she deserves to eat. :) I even saw her...

Ping: dgk! by jmcquown[_2_]
Are you planning to evacuate for Hurricane Irma? Your mother and Marlo with her along with Baby and all the cats? There are people from Florida already moving, booking motels and hotels (pet friendly) and travelling well ahead of the hurricane. It hasn't even hit the States yet. Got any...

Going away for a week by dgk
I'm heading off to a small family reunion - just the immediate family and kids and spouses and cousins and such. Naturally I'm panicking over leaving the brood, but my neighbor Judy will do a fine job baby sitting. She's also taking car of Marlo over at my mom's house. I won't have newsgroup acess...

Sorry, can't do Facebook by jmcquown[_2_]
I just don't like the interface. I haven't deactivated my account (yet) and might check for posts there on rpca from time to time but as a regular form of communication I simply don't like it. Jill

Cat grass - tastier than cobwebs! by Takayuki
When I was at a friend's house last week, I noticed that she had a large, but slightly wilted bunch of grass sitting on a bench. I asked her if it was cat grass, and it was! But unfortunately, she said that her cat showed no interest in it, which is why she'd stopped bothering to water it. She...

Getting a quote for a fence by dgk
I don't want a fence, but I need some way to keep my cats from straying and I"d like to start letting them out. Around $2300. That's two 25 foot fences with a 4' gate in each one. I was checking on cat containment systems but putting together a decent one would be around $700 and wouldn't allow...

My neighbor is fostering two kittens by dgk
I'm resisting temptation. Really. The girl is Charlotte, the boy is George. Charlotte is, so far, lady like. George has been a terror, but Judy's big cat Charlie has been instructing George in proper behavior and George is just becoming a great little kitten. I'm not taking George, and my mom...

Ok, where is the facebook group? by dgk
If we're going to have 4 posts over two weeks, I guess I'd better get on that facebook thingie.

Fipronil in eggs by Jack Campin
This is not directly cat-related, but if you've ever treated a cat for fleas you'll probably have used this stuff. I had no idea it was so...

Advocate by Lesley Madigan
What is in that stuff?! When we took in Spirit (RB) she had fleas and nothing seemed to help much. Advantage helped a little as did spraying the bed/washing the bedding at 50 degrees but come this year and the warmer weather and once again both cats were scratching like mad and so was I! Last...

Losing Fur by Cheryl[_6_]
Kerry, my newish cat, seems to be lacking fur on part of her belly near the back legs. I only just noticed - she loves being petted, but like many cats, she takes exception to belly-rubs so I hadn't looked at her belly in quite a while. I have an appointment with the vet for her tomorrow - I...

Needy kitty by Joy[_3_]
Koala is very needy this afternoon. He keeps bugging me to pet him. He's come a long way from his feral past, and sometimes comes up on my lap and demands petting when I'm in the living room. However, he generally ignores me when I'm on the computer. However, the events of this week have...

Naturally by Joy[_3_]
I have a three-bedroom, two bath house. I have carpet in the living room and hallway. All the other floors have easy-to-clean vinyl flooring. Naturally, whenever there's a hairball, it's on the carpet. I found one in the hallway when I got up this morning.

Kedi (film about Istanbul cats) by Jack Campin
I saw "Kedi" in Edinburgh tonight. Really enjoyable, lots of beautiful cats and superb aerial photography of Istanbul that shows it in a way I'd never imagined, and it makes a really interesting point. While there are housecats in Istanbul, someone near the end points out that they lose their...

Stepped on Buffy! by jmcquown[_2_]
All morning Buffy has been begging for attention. Scritches and loving words didn't seem to cut it. I decided to Furminate her. :) She loves it. She saw the grooming tool in my hand and started prancing around, all happy. For an indoor shorthair she's got quite a thick undercoat. I have to...

Kitty Kisses by jmcquown[_2_]
Buffy likes to give me kisses on my face early in the morning. It's very sweet. But I'm not ready to wake up at 5AM. Nor 6AM. I love you, but please stop leap frogging over me all night. She's a sweetie, but I have to hide my hand. Because if she can see my fingers she's expecting me to...

Ping Jack: Istanbul cats by Bastette[_3_]
For Jack especially, but for everyone else, too. A friend of mine just sent me this link, about a new documentary that has just been released. It's about the cats of Istanbul and the people who take care of them. It sounds like a great movie, I hope it comes to my area soon. (Apologies to anyone...
