Sudden Weird behaviour by The Doctor
Just got our cat back last night into the house. For about a day or so, he was avoiding our property for 24 hours. He was more or less out for 72 hours. Recently at the start of June 4 kittens and their parents have taken a small area of our property to just raise the kitties. I wonder if our...

Cat herding, it is possible by John Doe[_2_]
After about one month experience... With very limited use, and not actually shocking anything (of course), just the sound of a stun gun can be an extremely effective tool for convincing your cat to do something or stop doing something. Currently one of my cats is on the porch. She can also...

My outside cat has an electric blanket by John Doe[_2_]
I was thinking of ways to keep it warm during the winter. You know, boxes or whatever. I bought an electric blanket and it hasn't left the area since that day. The weather hardly gets below freezing, so I'm hoping for a cold night :) I think it will work at least down to 0F. One night was about...

Mats? by Rhino[_3_]
My male cat, who is 15, has longish hair and it is prone to getting mats. This year is especially bad and he's getting a bit testy with me as I try to deal with them. He's never really been a fan of brushing or combing - unlike my mother's cat who INSISTS on at least five or six brushings a day...

Feeding schedule for cats at home alone by Rhino[_3_]
I may have to go out of town periodically in the coming months to deal with my mother's health issues. I used to bring my cats with me (in a carrier) when I had a car but I've got financial issues that keep me from being able to afford a car for the time being. That means I'm likely going to...

wrestling by John Doe[_2_]
I've always enjoyed wrestling (real wrestling, not professional wrestling). The newcomer female is bigger than my male. And she is a bully. Now they are warming up to each other, they are frequently wrestling. Most of it is friendly, but sometimes they get rough. He is probably in it for the...

Cat Vision by John Doe[_2_]
My Fenix HL-50 (I guess that's the number) headlamp lets me see cats at night. I was ready to feed the neutered outside cat. The only way I could tell it was there (two yards away) is by the bright reflection of my headlamp on its eyes, without even pointing the lamp directly at the cat....

After 8 years, my feral is using the Skyway! by John Doe[_2_]
The hard-core feral cat has been here for eight years. It has a loft in another room that's connected to their Skyway. Stays there most of the time. But when it exits to eat and use the box, it always takes the shortest route to the floor. But over the last several weeks or so, perhaps having...

I've been out of town, visiting my daughter and her family, and attending my granddaughters university graduation. . . that's the good part. My daughter's cat, Cleo, started peeing in corners of the room with her litterbox, and on the rug in the foyer. This may have started when they acquired a...

My hard-core feral by William Vetter
John Doe wrote: It's the weirdest thing. If anything in its area is changed, takes weeks getting used to it. It's the only cat that has not used their skyway. The only exception is for getting up to and down from its loft. There are two exit/entry directions it can go on the skyway, left...

I receive complaints about the Cat Deterrent. The elderly in particular use a cat-deterrent in their garden. It is a small apparatus with a speaker attached to it. It produces a high-pitched bleep of more than a 100 decibel. The sound is mostly only audible for children, youngsters and people...

Controlling fleas by humidity by John Doe[_2_]
I just got wind of the idea that fleas can be controlled by humidity. We have a very hot summer and I've been using the air conditioner a lot. It removes tons of water. My male cat's skin condition has improved to nearly 100%. Apparently it's a seasonal thing. I'll be prepared from now on. Will...
