    Cat eating toilet paper

    Having just learned a valuable lesson myself about sudden changes in behavior, I have some questions for you: How old is the cat? Is this something new or something he's always done? If he's a kitten, I suspect it's just a childish quirk. My baby, Clarence, has a whole bag of annoying tricks...

    Cat will not leave windowsill - sulking or what?

    I am pleased to tell you all that Fargo is much better already. He's still not very mobile, but he's traded the windowsill for a blanket on the floor below, an idea he rejected just two days ago. This morning he came into the kitchen and begged for treats for the first time in two weeks. And...

    Cat will not leave windowsill - sulking or what?

    I wanted to let you all know that I took Fargo to the vet this evening and he was running a fever of 104 degrees. The vet found he also had sores on his legs as well as the miliary dermatitis and a broken fang - the poor baby. I felt like such a neglectful owner. She thinks he has an allergy...

    nutty?

    My oldest, Wilbur, has always been a biter. I tried to train it out of him but it just seems to be an integral part of his purrsonality! It's definitely an affection thing with him, but when it gets too rough, I put him down and ignore him. That works better than anything. But maybe you...

    Thanks again for your support. I am taking Fargo to the vet tonight. I did some more research on the internet and discovered his "mange" is actually miliary dermatitis. When on the base of the tail like his is, it is usually caused by flea bites, which is a possibility since the kitten I...

    Cat will not leave windowsill - sulking or what?

    I thank you all for your thoughts. My concern for the cat is deepening. He is not really staring out the window, but into a corner and is also having "accidents" on the floor. I will take him to the vet ASAP and let you all know what happens.

    Cat will not leave windowsill - sulking or what?

    The behavior just seems too extreme to attribute it to something he sees outside. I have had cats all my life and I have never seen any behavior so obsessive. My Maine Coon insists his water dish must be spilled all over the floor but even that daily obsessive behavior is mild compared to...

    Cat will not leave windowsill - sulking or what?

    I am really worried about my 4 year old cat, Fargo. For the past five days or so, he has taken up a post on one of our windowsills and refuses to leave it for any reason. He will even fall asleep, fall off, but then jump right back up. He must be eating and using the litter pan, but we never...
