Buffy Update 4/16/21 by jmcquown[_2_]
I dropped Buffy off at 7:45 this morning and picked her up at 3PM. She's sitting in my lap right now. :) The abscessed tooth was really bad but they also took out four more, two that were loose and the other two in pretty bad shape. The trick now will be to get her to eat some gooshy food (no...

Buffy Hates Computers by jmcquown[_2_]
I will never be able to work from home because Buffy cannot stand it when I'm in front of the computer. She has to get in my lap and try to push my hands away from the keyboard by giving me little kisses (a sweet distraction) and purring or nudging my hands away from the keyboard with her...

OT: Just an Update by jmcquown[_2_]
Buffy is doing fine and seems to be adapting to my going to work. I'm adapting to it, too. :) My boss is a very nice guy. His wife pops into the office from time to time. She also works, not for the same company, but she has a spot in the office where she can plug in her laptop and get on a...

Marmelade, 2016?-2021 by Rollory
Marmelade, the best, smartest, friendliest cat I've ever known died today, hit by a car. He was a feral we'd coaxed into spending more time with us to have a professional mouser around. For at least three years he lived in the general vicinity - from the first year, watching us occasionally...

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...
