    Question of the Day, Sunday 10 November, 2019

    I have reread Terry Pratchett's Discworld books dozens of times. They make me laugh, but they also contain so much wisdom.

    Possible solution to cats waking you up for food

    I have read so many threads about cats waking up their humans for food. I've seen countless comics about "kitty alarm clocks". I just wanted to put this out there as a suggestion. We currently have 7 cats and they don't wake us up for food and none of our previous ones over the past 30 years...

    I like it with rum. Sometimes I will throw in a dash of orange juice too.

    Vetmedin shortage

    Spike is on Vetmedin for her DCM. I stopped by the vet to pick up her refill, and they were out. They said there is a shortage of the medication. (Really annoyed that they didn't tell me this when I phoned in the refill request 4 days prior) I frantically began checking with online companies and...

    Age is a state of mind, but...

    I've gone to the same grocery store for years and would chit-chat with the cashiers. Every time I bought baby food for the cats, one of them would say "Oh, you have a baby!" I will never forget the day that it changed to "Oh, you have a grandchild!"

    FIV+ & FIV- Living Together?

    He usually only had labs done once a year although there were a few times at the six month mark we did them. He had his teeth cleaned twice and two teeth removed. He was supposed to get a dental this past summer, but he passed before then.:sniffle:

    FIV+ & FIV- Living Together?

    FWIW Rocky was fiv+ and lived with our fiv- cats for 8 years. There were no issues. He never made any of the others sick. He was non-aggressive, shared food and water dishes, and groomed the other cats. The only difference between him and the others was that instead of an annual check-up, we...

    Cats only meow to humans?

    We hear all the normal chirps and trills from them, but ours meow to each other - usually when they are looking for each other. Sometimes I will sit on the patio and just watch the cats through the windows. They will meow to instigate play or to locate where the particular cat is that they want...

    Cats only meow to humans?

    I have read it dozens of times, Cats only meow to humans. My cats are apparently unaware of this, because they meow to each other often. Am I the only one? Do your cats meow to each other?

    Tips and Tricks for Managing High Prey Drive

    A favorite in my house when I can't play (like while I'm cooking dinner). I take a small motorized cat toy that runs on watch batteries (similar to a hexbug). I cover the living room floor with sheets of newspaper and let the toy run loose under the paper. The cats love it. They hunt it down...

    Anxious and worried about my cat after sibling cat died.

    I am so very sorry for the loss of Cashew. As others have said, different cats grieve in different ways. I think giving yourself as well as Walnut time to deal with the loss is important. That being said, we had one instance where we brought in a kitten soon after losing one, and it turned out...

    Ac broke down should i worry about the cats?

    I think I have read that fans don't help cats. They help us because we perspire and the fans evaporate the sweat, but cats don't perspire. I think that's what was said, anyway. Could you get a small window AC? This time of year they are often on clearance.
