    Just For Fun poll: How big do you think Rain will get?

    Rain is now about 5 and a half months old and having another growth spurt. Today she weighs 5 lbs. 6.3 oz. She's a Domestic Medium Hair, so we really have no idea on her genetics! She's growing pretty quickly again. But we have had BIG cats and LITTLE cats, and in-between cats. Who wants to...

    Rain is a TV addict...

    Well, a YouTube addict! She was getting a little too energetic the other day, and I had work to do. I had been playing with her all morning, and now it was time to do housework. But she was into EVERYTHING when I wasn't giving her my undivided attention. Even her toy mouse wasn't a long enough...

    What would be the best description of Rain's color?

    She is definitely "Blue" (gray)... but is she "Blue something"... other than just solid blue? When her hair lays flat, it looks at first glance like it's just solid blue, but when it parts over a joint, or when I lift it up, it's much lighter underneath. In sunlight, it sort of takes on a light...

    How do we know for sure that the earth is round?

    Because if the earth was flat, cats would have knocked everything off the edge. 😁

    Wow... what a difference love and good nutrition have made!

    I was just looking at pictures Rain as she's grown up, especially post illness. Here she was, 2 months ago recovering from a grand slam of Calicivirus, Bartonella, Giardia and Coccidia. We didn't think that she would survive. She looks pretty awful here, the day that we realized that she was...

    "Go-Limp" trait in cats other than Ragdolls?

    I'm not sure if this is a behavior or health (genetic) question so I'll post it here. Mods, feel free to move if needed. We all know that Ragdolls and their related breeds have the eponymous tendency to go limp like a ragdoll when picked up. Rain has the same tendency to turn into a sack of...

    Look what I can do!

    Rain is learning some feline agility moves! She's getting really good at the tunnel and beginner hurdles! Sorry for the less than great videography, but she's so fast that it's hard to catch her with the camera! If you listen closely, you can hear a few clicks from her training clicker. She is...

    Has anyone here shown their cat in Agility?

    Looking for suggestions. Rain is now 20 weeks old and seems to show an aptitude for Cat Agility. She's a very quick learner. We began clicker training shortly after we brought her home from the shelter, but we had to take several weeks off due to serious illness after her first 10 days. After...

    So, cats play football!

    Black cat makes an appearance at MetLife Field on Monday Night Football last week during the Giants-Cowboys game! He is one of a colony of stadium cats who live at MetLife Field, probably taking care of mice and rats, and scoring the occasional feast of stadium snacks... and hopefully, some real...

    Survey: What color eyes does your cat have?

    I wish that we had the survey function here, so I will have to do this the "hard way", LOL! Quite simple... what color are your cat's eyes? Also... what breed is your cat (or, what is the dominant breed if you know it?) Just curious to see what the most popular eye color is in our global...

    The eyes have it! Let's see those pretty peepers!

    Amber-gold, sometimes almost orange.... the pic doesn't show the depth of color, or the gorgeous green halo around her pupil... but this girl has got some pretty eyes!The eyes of a cat hold a special kind of beauty. Let's see your cats' beautiful eyes.

    If you woke up tomorrow morning and your cat had turned into another species, what would it be?

    Thread title says it! Based on your cat's personality and antics, if you and your kitty woke up tomorrow, and your kitty turned into another species of critter... what would it be? If Rain became another critter tomorrow, she would most definitely be a ferret! She is always climbing into stuff...

    I know she's a cute little moggy, but what is she pretending to be?

    Little Miss Rain here is trying so hard to pass herself off as something other than the Domestic Medium Hair that she actually is. What breed do y'all think she's pretending to be? In good light, her eyes are golden yellow to amber with green flecks and shading. Yet at times, they get a greenish...

    An adoption story, and a void filled, an ache soothed (long)

    Friday the 13th was a lucky day for a small gray Domestic Medium Hair in a shelter in Texas. That was her "Gotcha Day", the day that she was adopted from a place where "They check in, but they don't check out". Sadly, many animals who land in this shelter don't come out alive. Not unless...

    So long, Tara and Skye...

    It's been a while since I posted here, but since my last visit, we have had to say goodbye to 2 of our 3 fur babies. In April, our 13 year old Himalayan Tara made the bridge crossing. She was diagnosed at the very end of 2018 with cancer and Polycystic Kidney Disease. We gave her a lot of love...

    Gang's Still Doing Well!

    It's been a while since I popped in, but wanted to let y'all know that our fur gang is still doing well, even our Old Lady Skye! She just turned 16 about 3 months ago and is still doing her thing-- albeit, in retirement mode! She isn't climbing trees or hollering from the roof tops anymore, but...

    Skye's Medical Mystery

    So, Skye turned 15 a few weeks ago, and she was out walking fences, climbing trees and checking out the roof. Eating, drinking, playing, being a very active senior cat-- blood work on April 4 of this year was completely unremarkable, UA was good, thyroid panel with Free T4 was all fine, nothing...

    SCHRODIE'S LOST!!!!!

    He was here this morning and demolished his breakfast... but now I can't find him ANYWHERE!! I have literally torn the house up looking for him. There is not a corner in this tiny duplex that I haven't scoured. There is no furniture of a type that he could hide in (waterbed, so no box spring to...

    Vitiligo!? Schrodie, you are a mess!

    Okay, an update... Schrodie still has stomatitis, he's going on cyclosporine instead of prednisolone, and he is not at this time a candidate for full-mouth extraction because it may not help him as the stomatitis actually goes down into his throat a ways-- it may be too wide-spread to justify...
