    Do your cats talk to each other?

    I'm really enjoying the interactions. These two are frenemies at the moment, but the talking is new as of a few weeks ago and so I think this is a new phase for them.

    Not bonding with new cat

    He may be a shy sort, and he's trying to work out his new life. My Dude, who I adopted last year when he was nine, took a while to become my cat. He never sits with me and certainly never gets up on the bed, but when we first got him he did sit beside us on the couch and he did get up on the...

    Do your cats talk to each other?

    I can always tell when Dude and Willow are both around because they talk to each other. Willow makes a deep BRRRRRRRRRR! sound, while Dude's sound is a much higher Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! This usually starts when Dude is telling Willow he's just going to walk past her and please don't chase me...

    How do I find all my older posts?

    A few months ago I posted asking where the list of cat food rating was. I received my answer and the link. I want to go back and review the list via the link, and rather than ask the same question, I thought I could go into my account info and see a list of all my old posts. but I can't find...

    Cat not drinking nearly enough

    I tried adding a couple of tablespoons of water to his food, and that seems to be acceptable to His Furry Majesty. Let's hope that's all it takes. Thanks, everyone!

    Cat not drinking nearly enough

    He's apparently in very good health, just a bit dehydrated, but enough so that the vet was concerned and wanted him to get more water. I've only had him since last October, so I don't have a full history. Basically, he's a 10-year old kitten most of the time, behaviourally. I only know that...

    Cat not drinking nearly enough

    I took my male cat Dude to the vet last week. He got a clean bill of health, except that he's dehydrated. Not severely, but enough that his skin is a bit loose. The vet had me try a special food that's slightly salty and he ate it once, then rejected it completely. It occurs to me that I've...

    Has anybody tried 'leash training' their cat?

    Aww, look at those sweet little panthers.

    Has anybody tried 'leash training' their cat?

    My Willow did that until I started to take her father afield on our property. If your cat is bold and doesn't run from dogs and cares, and your neighbours keep their dogs leashed and fenced, he may be willing to go down the road a bit for an actual walk. It does take them time to understand...

    Frenemies? Arch nemeses? Pals?

    I sure hope he does. He's adorable and the two of them are such a great source of entertainment and joy.

    Frenemies? Arch nemeses? Pals?

    It's so reassuring to hear that. My husband is gravely ill, and we weren't paying enough attention to our Willow, and since she had made friends with another cat in the past, we hoped she would benefit from feline company if we adopted a cat that had previously lived with another cat. She...

    Frenemies? Arch nemeses? Pals?

    He won't be able to resist my beautiful little black panther forever, though.

    Has anybody tried 'leash training' their cat?

    I just made sure that having the harness on was a prelude to a good playtime with a wand toy. As soon as I put the harness on I started playing. When she was used to the harness, I attached the leash and walked around holding the leash and playing with the toy. When she was used to that I...

    Frenemies? Arch nemeses? Pals?

    I'm really happy that Dude is now not afraid of Willow. She does respect his boundaries and they're on an equal footing. I've never felt I needed to intervene. The only time I've reacted is when I've caught Dude spraying the BBQ, and then I just clapped my hands at him. He was roaring...

    Frenemies? Arch nemeses? Pals?

    Okay, so here we are six months in, with Dude (9-year old male adoptee) and Willow (8 year old female). They are pretty peaceful together, and I'm pretty sure they're playing, but because I'm new to this two-cat thing I'm not sure and I have a couple of questions. Up until recently Willow...

    Oops. Spraying

    I would never rehome the little guy. He's not going anywhere. I like my house to be clean, but the odd cat spray isn't the end of the world. I'll just havve to be diligent. I'm fine with doing a find-and-destroy misson once a week. Honestly, his markings leave no smell, and we didn't notice...

    Oops. Spraying

    No, he's an indoor cat and always has been. We adopted him about 5 months ago. He's 9 years old, so not a young cat, and he lived with a young female cat in his past life, so living with another cat wasn't a new thing for him.. We have a couple of cats that roam freely in our neighbourhood...

    Oops. Spraying

    He sleeps on two of the dining room chairs. No litter boxes in the dining room! Also, I have suspected for a while that he is hyperthyroid. He is a happy little boy, but he does run around a LOT for a middle-aged cat, and although he eats twice as much as my other cat, who is fat, he is the...

    Oops. Spraying

    Yes, he's neutered, and has been since he was a kitten. We got him from the SPCA about 5 months ago, and he is nine years old. They have his history, since he was an SPCA kitten. I have no idea whether he sprayed inside his old home. We haven't seen him do this before in the house, although...

    Oops. Spraying

    The other day we noticed our Dude making spraying motions. I've seen him do this before but not actually spraying. However, this time there were a couple of drops of spray. I've found a couple of other spots on chair legs, too, now that I'm looking. There's no smell that I can detect, oddly...
