    Need some urgent advice for catching and caring for a stray kitten...

    So I work at a place that is predominantly outside and we had a mother cat with kittens on the property at one point. Animal control came and took the cats, but missed one small little kitten. My coworker has been trying to socialize it and care for it, hoping to be able to get it comfortable...

    Random night mewling

    So Google was not much help here, because it isn't a constant happening. I've noticed with Prince over the years that I've had him, that at night after I've gone to bed he will sometimes wonder around the apartment and meow as if looking for something. Every few months or so I noticed this...

    Does temperature affect Cat's behavior?

    More specific with this question that I will be because those of you who know Prince and Nikita are well aware that Nikita is the skittish yet clingy and social one where Prince at the hyperactive always on go one. Nikita has always had this playfulness about her, but tonight she seems to be...

    Should I really be worrying about the collars?

    I've had a collar on Prince and Nikita since I got them, and that's about three years for Prince and a few months behind for Nikita. The thing is, as you know, I'm in an apartment and they are strict indoor (my paranoia). They don't try to leave the apartment when I open the door, almost like...

    Dry food, wet food, dry/wet mixed...what's best?

    I have another food question for you. I've had Prince forr nearly three years, and Nikita for 2 and 1/2. They are used to being fed wholehearted cat food which it dry food two or three times a day. They are also used to and get excited whenever I open a bag of treats and they enjoy wet food as a...

    Does it truly make a difference how often you put the food down?

    If I can clarify, for Prince and Nikita I've always put food down around the time I've woken up and around the time I get ready for bed. That had changed a little bit too when I wake up and when I get home from work. Although my grandfather made a comment about Nikita seeming a little bit skinny...

    What have you learned about cats since owning one?

    I've always hailed that I'm a dog person, growing up I had dogs and cats but mainly dogs. I had an ex with 9 cats and I couldn't stand it, it was just too much. But after so many years and finally getting out on my own in this small studio apartment I wound up getting Prince and Nikita. Prince...

    The war with bugs

    You know, when I was a kid, and throughout much of my early years, I would go out of my way to hunt those pesky flies, mosquitos and other bugs that would fly about the house. I'd do everything in my power to make sure they were deceased. Now, I'm reminded and take great joy in Prince and...

    Nikita should thank Prince!

    Nikita, lover of going into cabinets (I've put locks on most of the cabinet doors but some I haven't done yet), decided to slip into the cabinets under the sink in the bathroom when I kept the door open. Realizing while moving about the apartment that I hadn't seen my cats, I went in pursuit of...

    Prince is treating Nikita like prey....I don't know what to do

    I apologize for the long post but this is an urgent matter and I'm feeling very anxious, so I have to explain in detail. I know I've posted well in the past about Prince and being confused whether the cats are playing or if Prince is bullying Nikita, and you know he's the hyperactive cat so...

    Should I get a new tree/scratch post?

    I have a couple cat scratch tree but I'm wondering if I should get new ones and replace the ones that I have although at the same time I don't think I need to. The one that I call the tower which in tall and brown is feeling very good shape after almost 3 years but the other one that is gray and...

    Nikita's strange, almost obsessive quirk.

    So Nikita has this habit that I always wondered what reason she did it for. When eating her food, she'd paw the ground like the cats in the wild do to store food (at least that's what google said). I noticed many times she'd go out of her way to literally put whatever the nearest item on the...

    Long Live the Prince

    You'll get the reference in a minute. Prince had the funniest moment just the other day. If you know the Lion King, you know the famous cliff scene where Mufasa falls to his death. Well. Prince was trying to jump onto the bed where I was and it all happened so fast but he didn't quite make the...

    Nikita the beggar cat.

    So I don't allow my cats to eat human food, it just quite simply does not happen because I know there's a lot in our food that cats don't eat and shouldn't eat. Prince has never had an interest in human food, I did once try and run a test by holding a piece of bland cooked chicken in front of...

    Anybody ever recycled cat furniture parts?

    I'm curious if anyone else has done what I did here...I had this trixie cat furniture castle thing (that brown cat furniture you see in my profile picture) it had at the base a brown base with two stepping stools and a cylindrical section that connected the base with the second base, and that...

    True testament to learned behaviors

    You know, when I went on my thanksgiving trip I bought that automatic pet feeder from petco which I was wary about continuing to use because I preferred giving my cats their food myself-I was afraid they wouldn't come to the door like they did when I got home from work because I thought they did...

    Prince and Nikita reacting to various drinks

    An unconventional post, but I just find it amusing and need to comment on whenever I'm drinking beer or wine, Prince and Nikita have some of the most hilarious reactions. I've seen Prince just dip his entire head into a glass of wine, sniffing it to the point I'm concerned he's about to take a...

    Nikita scared me half to death the other week...

    Some of you may recall several months back when I was having issues with Nikita tearing a hole in the film covering of the mattress box and crawling around inside.....I ended up duct taping boxes to the bottom of it and throwing a sheet over it. Well the sheet kept coming off so i threw it out...

    Prince and Nikita do not follow typical "cat behavior" rules....

    Honestly, these cats are abnormal-which may be appropriate because I myself tend to be quite the opposite of whatever society says is "normal". Maybe they've picked up on me. But I've noticed anytime I do something that people say a cat will react one way or another, they don't. Make a change...
