    What's on your Mind Thread - 2022

    @Katie M, how wonderful! I have lots of gray hair now. I stand in front of the mirror and watch the silvery strands slip down between the honey-brown, and think, "Every one of those is a merit badge of a youth well-misspent!" Well, except for the handful that have my grown sons' names...

    What's For Dinner? - 2022

    Lunch was Southwestern Beans and Rice. I still feel stuffed. Dinner is going to be light tonight. Maybe 1-2 pieces of cheese toast.

    Well, it would seem that "fox chasing" is more a correct term. They enjoy being out, having a rousing ride, and then getting a good breakfast at the hosts' home, or by tailgating. Personally, so long as the foxes are not harmed (and they actually seem to take some pride in their abilities...

    My Feral And Rescued Cats

    SEE! SEE! I knew that Banjo is a little person in a fur coat, and I CAN SEE WHERE THE ZIPPER IS! Right in the center of her chest! And another candle is lit. Well, here's the thing, in some people it does prevent it, but in those that do get it, it makes the cases much milder. I got...

    Letting a cat out independently after moving house - why is it three weeks' wait?

    I highly recommend the flea medication with heartworm protection for anyone's cat who lives in areas that mosquitos visit. Mosquitos are what spreads heartworms, and they are no respecters of "indoors/outdoors," as any of us who have lain awake at night swatting at the buzzing little pests can...

    Juno Is Getting Worse, Not Better, at Travel?

    If nothing else, pack a worn t-shirt, securely closed up in a ziplock bag, that you can put on just before you go inside. That will smell like the "you" she is accustomed to.

    My Cat Is Terrified of My Wife Since She's Returned from The Hospital

    The main thing is that you are almost certainly going to have to get him in to allow him to become reacquainted with her, the sight/sound/smell of her post-hospitalization. Will he approach you if you sit down outside? If not, you may have to resort to a humane trap. If he will, entice him to...

    I've now read "Full Cry," "Hot Spur," "Out Foxed," and "The Hunt Ball," and am working on "The Hounds and the Fury." I'm liking this series far better than I had anticipated. There are some wonderful characters, both human and animal (the animals talk among themselves). I adore Sister Jane, a...

    What's For Dinner? - 2022 isn't "just for ice cream." It is for the peace, and the enjoyment of watching the birds, seeing the light across the marsh. That's worth a fortune, all for the price of less than a gallon of gas (ice cream not included). GO FOR IT! Lunch was itty bitties and smilies...again...

    My Feral And Rescued Cats

    Come to think of it, when I am not aware of my surroundings, they may put a pillow over my face with my blessings!

    My Feral And Rescued Cats

    Isn't that truth! My sons, bless them, have promised me that as long as I am aware of my surroundings, they will make sure that I am able to have a cat.

    How to stop inside spraying of sudden onset?

    That should do it. I'd also suggest getting a black light. Cat urine fluoresces under black light. If anything glows, it isn't clean yet. My girl, while she does not scent mark, is getting older, so I'll be ordering one to have on hand when her bladder gets worse.

    Why does my cat randomly bite despite instigating pets?

    That looks like a love bite to me. Now, bear in mind that cats are energy sponges, and long strokes down the length of their bodies can cause them to "overamp" and bite, as well. At the FIRST HINT of a "ripply" back, stop stroking. You'll get a reaction very quickly if you keep it up. The...

    What's For Dinner? - 2022

    Lunch was spicy chicken Alfredo with pasta. Supper will be biscuits with either scrambled eggs or sausage gravy. Depends on my energy levels at 4 AM!

    I'm with @Tobermory! Although my favorite "curse" word is "spit." It replaced a far worse word!

    My Feral And Rescued Cats

    I love all sorts of ferns. Can't keep them alive, but I love them. I have a black thumb. I can kill a plastic philodendron in a week, flat.

    How to stop inside spraying of sudden onset?

    Are you using a good enzymatic cleaner for cleaning up his "signposts?" If not, order one immediately. Regular cleaners do a good job of making that scent disappear to our noses, but not to a cat's nose, and he'll be attracted back to that spot. The other thing you can do is try to keep the...
