    Cat Behaviors That Surprise a Newbie!

    I never had a housecat until about six months ago when I adopted a stray that had wandered into my backyard. Until then I had always assumed cats were aloof and solitary and maybe tolerated a little human interaction now and then. I had no idea how wrong that was! I now have a furry friend up...

    My Kitty's Amazing Christmas Present!

    My brother who is a talented carpenter built my kitty an enclosed "catio" off our breakfast nook. It is basically a screened porch which surrounds the windows, and we can open the window to let her out. (It also has a screened door on the outside for people.) He built shelves and ramps all...

    Why Am I Banned From Replying on a Thread - No One Will Answer Me!

    Why would a cat prefer dry food?

    When I first adopted this very hungry stray kitty, she ate anything and lots of it. Dry food, canned paté food, canned wet food, Fresh Pet, bits of chicken and fish - ANYTHING. Now she won't touch any canned food, won't touch the Pet Fresh (which, my dogs used to LOVE) and will eat a little...

    Introducing cats for a temporary visit. Is it worth the trouble?

    We have an only cat about a year old, and as a rescue cat I'm not sure if she's ever lived with other cats. My son will be moving soon, and wants us to keep his cat for a week during the moving process. His cat is a 2-year-old female and both our kitties are spayed, vaccinated, indoor pets...

    Before And After - Scruffy Stray to Pampered House Cat

    If anyone read any of my previous posts, you know I never owned a cat before. But three months ago this hungry little kitty showed up in my backyard and after feeding her for a couple of weeks we trapped her. She was SO unhappy the first couple of weeks, she hid from us all the time except to...

    Why Is The Cat Peeing On My Bed?

    Why would a young, healthy, seemingly well-adjusted cat suddenly pee on my bed? I got out of the shower and there is Kitty, squatting on my bed with "that" look on her face. Sure enough, I shooed her away and there was a puddle of urine. Her litter boxes are clean - I clean them daily - and...

    Sweet Kitty Until She Goes Into "Stalk and Attack" Mode

    First time cat owner here, saying WTH?? Kitty is a sweet little purrball most of the time, but then gets the "kitty crazies" and spends the evening sneaking up and leaping at me while I'm sitting in my chair. She varies that by climbing up the back of my chair and reaching over to swat at me...

    Spaying Nightmare

    Just tried to help a lost little kitty, and get a pet for myself at the same time. I am going through an extremely stressful life situation, and thought a pet would provide some comfort and stress relief, and then a hungry, stray cat showed up in my yard. It seemed like we needed each other, so...

    New to Cats, Need Advice on Stray/Feral kitty

    Hello, I want to ask that all of you please be kind because I know almost nothing about kitties so I am seeking advice. A couple of weeks ago a small cat - maybe half grown, I'm not sure - showed up in our yard and I started to feed her on our deck. She never came near me, but when she'd see...
