Feline humor? by FragSinatra
Why is it that cats think playing hide and go seek is fun or funny? Everyone is looking for you, calling your name, thinking you're hurt and you don't bother to reply or come out. Then you just suddenly show up like nothing happened. Very funny. Or how about waiting to go up the stairs until a...

Feline jealousy by FragSinatra
Mage, a medium sized orange tabby, is very jealous. He doesn't like it when anyone pets Zero, a more lithe black cat. He'll deliberately get up and go over to where anyone is petting Zero as well as come from anywhere in the house if he hears someone petting Zero. This means Zero doesn't get a lot...

Trackers for cats? by Rhino[_3_]
Is anyone of aware of any products that can be attached to a cat so that it can be tracked if it doesn't come home on its own? I'm thinking of various TV shows in which the cops track the bad guy via a GPS chip in the bad guy's cell phone. Is there anything equivalent that I could put on a cat...

First time Summer Grooming by Sylvia M[_5_]
I'm a first time poster, and need your advice... Would it be wise, or too dangerous, to have my 9 year old long haired cat professionally shampooed, Summer-lion-cut, and nails clipped? Might it be too traumatic, since she's never even had a bath, hates to have us clip her nails and has never been...

Odd cat ritual by Rhino[_3_]
My male cat has an odd ritual that he does sometimes before drinking water: he rubs his front feet back and forth alternately a few times in front of the water source - like a human standing on a door mat trying to get snow or mud off a pair of boots - before drinking. He doesn't do it every...

Cats don't require grass as part of their diet? by FragSinatra
I've noticed that practically all the cats I know have eaten grass at some point in their life. Some of them make it a daily habit. I don't like to let Mage out because of fleas and ticks but when I do he's grazing the grass. It doesn't seem like they throw up after eating it either. --- Posted...

Mage: feline hyperthyroid? by FragSinatra
Mage has been throwing up once in a while so I took him into the vet. Everything looks good, but he's lost 5 pounds of weight since his last checkup and now they want to do a blood test for hyperthryroidism. Is hyperthyroidism fatal in cats? He's usually a tough kitty, but now I'm worried about...

My orange tomcat Mage, has some really stubborn tangled fur on his haunches. I've tried using two types of brushes (one w/fine bristles and one w/coarse bristles) and had no luck brushing them out. Would a comb work? Or does he need a bath and shampoo to get them out? --- Posted via...

Cat's fur won't grow back by June[_2_]
