    Stubborn Cat

    Weird Question I Was Asked

    Ok, so let me set this up: I was working last night, I work in a convenience store. It's a small independent store in a relatively small town. This customer comes in, and I see him a few times a week maybe two or three. I've never had any conversations with him, other than the normal customer...

    Something Wrong

    I realized just a few minutes ago, there is something wrong with me. I'm at work and a customer brought their baby in. I tried really hard to be "aww she's cute" but in my head I'm "meh, tiny human". Then I thought back to when someone brought in a kitten. I was holding it and talking to it...

    Let's Talk About Poop!

    Ok, so I recently switched Shadow to Natures Variety Rabbit LID. She's doing great on it, no flare ups of itchiness, but... her poo really REALLY stinks. It smells up the whole laundry and mud rooms, which are attached to one another. Is this normal for this food? She's doing so well on it...

    Am I A Terrible Cat Mom?

    I'm beating myself up right now. Shadow has fleas. She was at the vet a month ago for her skin irritation and even after the visit she didn't improve as much as she should have. The visit didn't go well. The vet tech scruffed shadow, which I didn't like, and then the vet took her out of my...

    Hypoallergenic Shampoos

    Hi everyone, I've been having ongoing issues with Shadows skin irritation and the monthly $200 dollar visits to the vet. I have been thinking about bathing her but with the ongoing skin irritation I'm not sure what a good shampoo would be to not compact the issues. Any recommendations?

    Do Your Cats Knead?

    So, earlier I was watching a video on YouTube and it showed a cat kneading a blanket. I stopped and thought "Huh...Shadow doesn't knead at all." My last cat Holly, kneaded all the time, but shadow just gets into position and flops. So I want to know, does your cat or cats knead?

    Eating Habits Changed

    Hi everyone, So short story time. A few days ago when I was waking up, I noticed Shadow wasn't getting in my face and trying to help wake me up.(shes been doing this since I changed work schedules). It was still dark in the house (4:45am) and so I just got up and started my day. As I am...

    Who Plays Fetch?

    So, Shadow and I had a very intense, 20 minute fetch session today. I bought her some of these fuzzy mice a few days ago and she absolutely loves them. When I bought the same fuzzy mice a year ago I found them both buried in her litter box. Haha I thought maybe she didn't like them because of...

    Intros And Stuff
