    What You'd Only Admit To A Fellow Cat Person...

    I just realised recently that I recognise my Scamp's "I'm about to poop" meow. It's quite a different meow to his other "I'm bored" meows, or his "I'm hungry" ones, or his "It's 04:00 in the morning let's all wake up!" meows. This specific meow sounds like a question, and it usually means he'd...

    Puppy Harness For Kitty Cat?

    Has anyone here ever used a puppy harness for their kitties? I'm in the process of harness training one of my cats and have bought two harnesses already. My Scamp doesn't seem to be an odd shaped kitty and is a small enough 4kg, however both harnesses I've got seem to pull up around the shoulder...

    Another Litter Question...

    I’m wondering if you can help me find which type of litter am I looking for? I am currently in the process of making my two outdoor/indoor cats more used to being fully indoor, which means I now have two male cats regularly using the litter tray and I've been searching for a litter that I had...

    How High Is Too High For An Open Window..?

    How high is too high for an open window? Before having cats I'd always have my windows open wide allowing the air to curriculate. Now, well I don't know if I'm being paranoid or cautious but I rarely push right open the upstairs ones as it kind of seems dangerous? With summer arriving...

    That's Not What That's For...

    Any photos of your cats using something for anything other than its actual use?! My Scamp using his bed as a toy. He's turned it upside down playing about with it and is as happy as Larry. :winkcat: :greenpaw:

    What Lessons Has Your Cat Taught You?

    I was thinking about this myself the other day and thought it might be an interesting conversation to have here. Are there any lessons (life lessons mainly I suppose) that having a cat has taught you? The main lessons for me I think would be, well, one would be not to hold too much attachment...

    Storm Ophelia And A Stray Cat

    I have a new temporary addition to my house. He's a stray who I haven't named yet 'cause I don't want to get too attached. My actual cat has taken a huge dislike to this kitty, not surprisingly, as kitty is an un-neutered male, with my Scraggles being a neutered male. I've been trying to keep...

    Hi all - I've been away from the Cat Site a couple of weeks for a few reasons - one of those reasons, though, is why I'm asking this question... A young un-neutered male cat recently appeared in my back garden. I've done up posters etc. to try locate its owner, but that's not why I'm here...

    Balancing Act

    I've been working on my former stray cat's confidence with climbing this summer. I've been leaving treats on top of wardrobes etc. to encourage him and help him feel more comfortable and happy with the indoors. This was the first time he climbed up on to the bed post - all his own idea - I'm...
