    Final update: Juno got released from house arrest. The animal control officers I dealt with were mercifully accommodating and easy to deal with. (In my city, it can be a crap shoot; we have some amazing professionals but also some people who just like exercising power for its own sake or don't...

    Tempting, but the real irony would be when Juno mauls me for trying to get her into a costume.

    I'm not going to raise a stink right now, because this whole thing has really only affected me, not Juno. But I do think the policy is stupid for not leaving any discretion. Why get your indoor cat vaccinated if up-to-date vaccination status will not prevent needing to quarantine, and getting...

    In lighter news, I've started calling Juno "my little prisoner," or alternatively, 24601.

    If they tried to take her to quarantine at a shelter, I would lose it, but for now, I'm just trying to get through this and not make things worse for Juno by antagonizing the vet or animal control. As much as I want to fly into a rage, sometimes the quickest way out is through.

    4 months old kitten with URI and diarrhea not eating - Need advice.

    My kitty had a pretty bad URI when I got her at 4-5 months. She also had worms and giardia (didn't discover that until later). She did a little better at eating than yours-- ate at least 1/3 of each meal, which the vet said was fine, all things considered-- but she was really lethargic and...

    Oof, animal control sent me a quarantine order today. I have to keep Juno home for 10 days and then present her on a video call to animal control to prove she's OK. So at least she can stay here. But I'm going to worried to the whole time (plus now I have to postpone a work trip so I can be...

    Thanks to everyone for the responses. Today was the first business day after her appointment and no call so far from animal control. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    I wish they let me hold her; I'd rather be the one to get bit. I didn't ask this time but I've offered in the past and they've said no. And even after the first abortive attempt to vax Juno, when she bit, they just put her in a towel and still had the vet tech hold her. I never expected her to...

    Thanks for your reply! I'm kind just moping around all teary-eyed, worried that I messed up and Juno will get taken from me (and even if it's temporary, she's just gonna be a wreck). I'm not sure about cooperation vet. What is that? When the bite happened, I guess I didn't realize it was such...

    Cat bit vet tech

    Juno bit the vet tech today during her yearly appointment today as the vet was trying to administer her rabies vaccine. It was so quick I didn't even see it happen. I feel bad but I don't know what I could have done to prevent it. Afterwards, someone came and told me they were reporting Juno...

    Picture of the Month November 2023: Paint me like one of your French Girls/Boys

    Man, Olan Mills. We have a family photo in front of their shelves-full-of-leather-bound-books background. I really wanted the one where they project the parents' faces, ghostlike, up above the kids, but it cost extra and my parents wouldn't pay. Glamor Shots, on the other hand, always seemed...

    Post those aeroplane ears!

    This is Juno's standard reaction when I start singing to the radio

    How can you tell when your cat is relaxed?--Post your pictures here

    It seems like it would be so easy for her to roll over and roll right off. She never has, so it's prolly just me. I actually added the shelf specifically for her.

    I don't know how I feel about Juno being this relaxed on a tiny shelf above my pantry....
