    Comment by 'lmj1954' in article 'How Old Do Kittens Have To Be To Leave Their Mother?'

    I got my cat at 3 weeks old (is almost 17 now!) she was a orphan, mother got hit by a car and I was asked to take her. She never got socialized and bites me in affection. When I first got her she would not bottle feed her KMR and I feared for her life. I put down a saucer and she lapped it right...

    Bald Spot

    My cat was licking her fur off until getting bald spots, turns out after she was taken off chicken for 8 weeks it grew back, was a allergy to chicken. However when all this was going on the vet did a skin scrape to test, that was about 7 months ago and the area she scraped is bald, am I to...

    Cheapest cat toy!

    A grape! I dropped one on the floor and Lulu batted that thing all over the house for an hour on and off, she had such a good time with that darn grape. Sometimes it is the simple things like a empty thread spool, a aluminum foil ball, a ring from a milk jug. One thing I avoid is the balls...

    Glorious Day

    Almost 8 p.m here in Omaha, it is 70 degrees. Today it was 75. Unreal! I got out and did some yard work like picking up tree branch debris and dog poo. It was nice being out. Tomorrow it is suppose to be 76, then real strong thunder storms in the late afternoon and evening. I had a great day...

    My 4 days off-NOT!

    I worked 9 straight days to get my 4 days off. Friday went pretty well, I relaxed and caught up on my shows (The Bachelor and Downton Abbey). So that was nice. But Saturday and Sunday me and hubby spent at our rental house getting it cleaned up for our new tenant moving in this Friday.  We...

    Teeth cleaning and anesthesia

    I did the same, plenty of peanuts for the squirrels, filled up the bird feeders and put out more suet, and made sure the bird bath was full (it has a heater) ....I too worry about all the animals trying to get by, at least feeding them gives them the energy to expend trying to stay warm.

    We have a arctic blast as well, frigid. I told my husband last night I feel for that stray cat and wonder if it can survive, especially if it was ever accustomed to living in a house. Last weekend we made the double tote insulated with styrofoam  and plenty of straw, but I see no tell tale...

    Kitty Quirks

    Freedom Belle had a sweet tooth. I discovered this the first time when I was eating a donut.  Faster than fast she swung her leg and a with her claw hooked that donut. From then on whenever she saw me eating a donut she went nutso. I always gave her a very tiny piece with frosting on it, not...

    Has your cat ever bitten you?

    In my previous post recently I stated how Liberty Belle only love nips me, never bites. What did she do, read this thread?  When I go to bed at night it is our bonding time and she is always looking forward to it because she stays in my bedroom about 90% of the day and night, she does not join...

    The food I feed

    I use to feed Royal Canin, it was a good quality food, but once it went to about $16 for a 3 LB bag I would not pay that. Then I became a paid demonstrater for Nutro Natural Choice and began feeding that. (I loved that fun job walking around talking to people about nutrition and setting up my...

    Kitty Quirks

    Liberty Belle is 14 now, and every since she was 1 we have played a game, she knows the words that I say "I`m Gonna Get You!" She hunkers down and I lean down and give her some real good back scratches, and she crawls on the floor with her tummy, I give her more scratches and lightly slap each...

    My dog, she is disgusting at times

    I have learned, that if Pearl my Pomeranian is coming upstairs that prior to that I had better put up the cat food out of her reach, and had better scoop the feces out of the litterboxes, as she loves "Tootsie Rolls" like some dogs do. Besides the ick of the situation I was concerned the...

    Has your cat ever bitten you?

    Liberty Belle bites me, but not out of spite, I am petting her and talking to her and she purrs and gives me love nips, but sometimes it hurts if she gets too into it then her nip is harder. Mya, she is one that will bite me out of spite just because I wanted to get up and she on my lap, or...
