    Anyone have any advice about a cat that bullies?  Jake is a sweet boy, very loving with us. But there are two other cats in the house (out of 8 total) that he picks on almost relentlessly.  Rex and Casper are definitely at the bottom of the totem pole in the cat society here. Cas has gotten...

    pet fountain question

    Hey, guys.. .I don't know if this is the right place to put this or perhaps Health or Nutrition. I am thinking about going back to using at least one pet fountain for my cats, but DEFINITELY not plastic. I use a dental water additive and it went gummy on me really fast. Gummed up the filter...

    Cat dental health -best toothbrush

    As my cats age, I am worrying more about their dental health. Casper - who is the most skittish of the bunch - had FORLs and two teeth extracted. He is 6-7 and hard to "paste" with pet t.p.  I don't want a repeat of this and I am feeling a bit sheepish here now - I had gotten a bit lax with the...

    Occasional raw - cute story

    I do occasionally give my cats raw - mostly chicken and turkey. They like raw turkey meat best. I rinse it well and pat dry, and cut into little  pieces. I have recently started buying organic whole chickens from Costco - they go into the freezer. These chickens have giblets, which I share with...

    Cat Dynamics deteriorating

    Sigh. I don't know what to do about some of the cat dynamics in my household and things seem to be getting worse. Casper has always been a head case. He is a very UNconfident cat, and Jake and Prowler pick on him. He is also VERY reactive, so they could just walk by him and he growls, hisses and...

    fabric or faux leather?

    I am looking to buy a couple of inexpensive ottomans/benches to put in the large picture windows of my formal dining room, which is transitional in style. Right now the cats are sitting on a couple of the dining chairs in the windows and I would like to reclaim them. I don't want cat trees b/c...

    Middening update... and the news is NOT good.

I still am not sure WHO it is... tho' two of them were at the "scene of the crime" a few days ago.. one was sitting in the room.. the other was...

    Middening is maddening!

    One of the boys - and I think it is Archie - has started pooping on the floor in front of the litter pans in the laundry room. At first, we thought it was a commentary on the cleanliness of the pans so we did a big switchout - clean pans, fresh litter. Well, he pooped again tonight.... Ugh. I...

    Jake says "peekaboo!"

    I see you, little buddy! He likes the monitor; it's warm and he can hang out with me. He is pretty much back to his old self after his "adventure" outside in August. Sorry - the screen image is NOT TCS! :D  I was browing decorative items for the family room! LOL!

    Jake got out of the HOUSE!! (ETA: Jake's back!)

    He pushed open a screen that was not completely secured.  OMG!!! I am sick! Just sick. This is not good. He is a house cat. I put out some cat blankies, stinky human clothing, spent litter and some treats at the front and back of the property. We last saw him darting into the wooded area behind...

    Furniture vs. cat claws

    I need to get some furniture for our family/living room. My boys DESTROYED the occasional chairs I had for 20 years - nice, nubby fabric.They loved extending on the arms... and pretty much every place else. Ijust had them recovered in microfiber.  They look really nice but now I am thinking...

    The Taming of the Shrew

    A bit of excitement at my condo this evening. Doug and I were headed out to dinner and we were rounding up the kitties in the garage, but Archie wouldn't move. He was growling and then grabbed SOMETHING in his mouth and dashed into the house. Well, he had killed a little critter. He ran into the...

Who knows what the truth is. But the shelter is SO full the only place for them was in a sick room and...
