    The little things I like about my cat

    I literally LOL'ed at Mamie's happy butt puffs :P Sarah has had on and off again anal gland problems her whole life. I know how to express them, but sometimes she does it for me in the worst situations possible. Once, she was in my lap while I was sitting on a step and I moved her. As I did...

    X large litter box- longer

    We had two of these at work for many years for our resident cats, and I really liked them. One day one of the cats decided getting in the box, then peeing upwards onto the wall was necessary. So we taped doggy pee pads to the walls and that worked for about 6 months until they realized how...

    The little things I like about my cat

    Lila is the type to say "You look really busy. But your lap doesn't." It's never a problem if I'm sitting down working on something until she decides to do what we call the "Munchie march", where she stands on my lap and kneads with all 4's. Sometimes her tail gets swishing so hard she'll...

    Question of the Day, Saturday, the 6th of August, 2022

    I made a casserole once that resembled a deep fried brick :P

    Fuel prices in your area

    $3.40 today and I went from E to 3/4 tank for 30 bucks, so that's not too bad. Then I drove down the road and saw a new gas station had it for $3.17!!!!!!

    Cat persistently licking and chewing his paw pads.

    I completely agree that this issue is frustrating despite the urinary issues. As weird as this is going to sound, do his feet have an odor? You said he started overgrooming after all of his urinary problems. Did he ever do this before he was put on a prescription diet?

    Question of the Day, Saturday the 13th of August, 2022

    My version of fine dining is "hot dogs and chips on a paper plate? Sounds fine." :) I would choose "picnic" food by the lake. I've done that many times and those are very good memories.

    Cat persistently licking and chewing his paw pads.

    I had a male cat that blocked several times. Any kind of moisture rich food has kept him out of the emergency room. If I get lazy and give him dry food for a few days, he starts straining! No more kitty crack for him.

    Cat persistently licking and chewing his paw pads.

    It's hard to tell from the pictures, but are his paw pads drier than normal, or are there little scabs on them? How is his skin (red, itchy, normal?) Is he having any trouble walking on any of his feet? Anything skin/itch related can be so frustrating. It could be stress from all he (and...

    Geoffrey Small Cell Lymphoma

    I am so glad he seems so much more himself after decreasing the dose. I saw the same thing, and I'm so glad it happens relatively quickly. And you absolutely CAN tell it in their face. Their eyes, expression etc. says it all. As far as including you....part of having a pet in this situation...

    Possible anemia-Desperately needing support

    Cats can really drop weight fast. I didn't notice Willie had lost so much weight over a long period of time until a customers kid (who knows the cats and sees them a few times a year) asked why Willie was so skinny. I gave him a once over and was shocked at how thin he really had gotten...

    Possible anemia-Desperately needing support

    This is such great news! I am so happy that she is doing so good and eating so well! Do you have a scale to track her weight at home? If not maybe take some pictures of her from straight above so you can see her waist and compare over the next few weeks to ease your mind :)

    Post pics of cats and their catnip toy pickles 🥒

    I ordered some pickles and I can't wait to post pictures in this thread! But for now please enjoy a snapshot of unimpressed Lila with a jar of pickles. "These don't smell like catnip, Mom."

    I may or may not have ordered 3 pickles for 3 cats. I was going to get one, but two extras jumped in my cart. I know dogs and cats are apples and oranges but when my dog was decreased on the steroids, it was only a few days before I noticed a change. He was no longer panting, pacing, and...

    My Dog Found A Kitten

    Oh that video is precious!!! I started laughing at the 1 second mark and didn't stop! At that age they think they're SO TOUGH and every little thing they do is so dramatic! :lol:

    I haven't tried Chamomile tea on cats! Do you brew it normally?

    X large litter box- longer

    My female tortie has decided that standing and peeing is a thing. 🙄 She doesn't mark in the house thank God, but I got a covered box, which my cats use but I don't think they love. Of course I can't find a photo of what I saw months ago, but someone online had bought a very large storage...

    Stress does not help this. I used to love to cook meals from scratch but now a soup or mac and cheese does the job. :(

    Maybe he prefers fermented foods to overripe fruit! :lol:
