    New HHP show cat (kitten)

    I took my new kitten to his first show and he did great. 21 Household pets present and in his first ring he got Best Cat! :cheerleader: He ended up making 6 out of 8 finals. Two Bests, three 3rds, and one 6th place. Of course I was too busy watching him play with the judges and forgot to...

    Shareena 4/7/2007-4/7/2019

    I wanted a kitten or cat for as long as I can remember. I never got to have one when I was growing up, and then when I was out on my own I was doing so much traveling I thought it wouldn't be fair to a kitty. Twelve years ago I decided I was going to get a kitty anyway. I found an ad in the...

    Being Reviewed Problems Using Bb Code Editor

    It appears that the Rich Text Editor is the default now. I really, really, really don't like Rich Text and use it only when there is no other option. There is an option to change to BB Code Editor, but when I do that I lose all the symbols at the top of the message box. I'm attaching screen...

    Several things got messed up in my profile in the move, including my signature. I can't find any way to edit anything in the profile. Is this a general problem or just a glitch in my account?

    Happy Birthday Merlin! My 8 year old baby

    My miracle kitty. I almost lost him 2-1/2 years ago but he's back to being healthy and happy and still thinks he's a kitten. Apologies for the quality of the picture. I took it with my phone because he wouldn't hold still long enough for me to get my good camera out.

    Photobombs, Bloopers and Oopsies! Picture of the Month September 2015

    Photographing cats is almost always a challenge. Ever tried to get a close-up shot and ended up with one of your cat's face headbutting the camera? Then again, try to photograph something else, and there's an excellent chance of a cat photobombing the picture by showing up in it, entirely...

    How do you know when to change crystal litter?

    I was traveling with a friend recently and she brought crystal litter to use in the hotel room. The kitties really like it, and I like that there's no dust. I'd like to try it for my cats at home but have questions about exactly how it works. I know the urine is absorbed into the crystals and...

    What's in Your Junk Drawer?

    Let's revive a fun game we had in the Lounge a few years ago. Everybody has a junk drawer, right? Rules: 1. Name an object that is in your junk drawer. It has to be real, not something you think should be there or would funny if you had it there. 2. Go in alphabetical order. First person...

    At 1:20 AM last night I heard a lot of banging and what sounded like furniture being slid across the floor, but no yowling. So I got up to see what was going on and found 4 or 5 kitties with poofy tails pointing at the front door. (I lock to security screen and keep the front door open at...

    Meet Gandalf the Mostly White

    Wow! My youngest cats are 6 years old and I had forgotten how much energy a kitten has. About the only time he's still is when he's sleeping, so this is what most of my pictures look like. Using flash stops the action sometimes Eating with the big guy, Hercules. I missed the shot when...
