    My Gypsy was just diagnosed with the cat herpes virus. Vet told me its quite common in cats that have been in the shelter system. Anyway, the virus has caused her to have conjunctivitus in one of her eyes. The vet told me to find some L-Lysine supplements to give her. They help boost the cat's...

    What Is It With Cats And Computers?

    Every cat I ever owned has to sit right in front of the comp screen when I'm working. Then she demands to be petted, back scratched, belly rubbed, all done adoringly. I helped alleviate some of the problem by putting a small cat bed just behind the computer so she can lay and watch or snooze...

    Missing Claws?

    I just noticed that my newly adopted shelter kitty Gypsy has some missing claws. They are the 2 middle fingers of both her front paws. The other claws are there but the two middle fingers are clawless. What is up with that? Is that some new fangled partial declaw she got? or maybe she lost them...

    How Long For Fur To Grow Back?

    My cat was shaved for her spay about one month ago today. How long before all her fur grows back in? She does have a little peach fuzz now but no fur yet. It's been a long time since I had a cat that was shaved so can't recall how long it takes.

    Canned Sardines & Anchovies

    I bought a can of sardines packed in water for Gypsy. She loved them! Do cats also like anchovies? Besides protein, what is the nutritional value of each? I think they have Omega 3 fatty acid in them? What should I look for in a can? Is packed in oil better than water? I assume I should also...

    My Gypsy Has Become A Petting Ho

    This shelter kitty went from extreme shyness, hiding all day long 24/7, to a petting addict. She seems to want to be petted all the time while awake, scratched, massaged, kissed, cuddled, etc. She is now a little petting fool! All the time I am petting her her tail is going swish back and...

    Cat Not Washing Herself

    My Gypsy is a newly adopted older shelter cat about 8-10 yrs. (Age unknown) She also has chronic dental hygiene that will be taken care of next month. In the meantime, I've noticed that she does not clean herself. She is in perfect health other than her bad teeth. I assume she probably is not...

    Bird Chattering

    Ever try to explain to a non cat person how your cat makes a soft staccato chattering sound when it is engaged in watching birds play nearby? Years ago when I first heard it I didn't know what my cat was doing. Was she angry, scared, being aggressive, preparing to fight? Then I noticed she was...
