    Pooping outside the box

    Been quite some time since I was here.  Got busy.  I'm having a little behavior problem and want to see if anyone might have ideas.   My oldest daughter graduated college, got a job.  For 4 months.  Sigh.  Things happened and she had to move back home.  Along with her, she brought her now 6...

    Scared of where litter box is

    I have a very nervous 3 year old tabby cat.  No idea why, he's always been like this. Maybe because he spent so much time in the shelter before we got him?   Anyways, got a litter box problem.  We've had them out in the garage, no problem at all, the cats have a door that they can go in/out of...

    Strange behavior with first time empty nesting

    Ok, so I've heard about dogs getting "weirded" out when the human children leave the nest for the first time.  How about cats?   Our youngest left for school 2 weeks ago.  House is really quiet.  And it's kind of "freaking" the cats out.  Holly more than Sam, and that's kind of strange b/c Sam...

    Behavior question

    So this isn't really a serious question.  More of a "Why the heck does my cat do that " question.   I have 2 cats- Holly is 5 and Sam is 1. Both are spayed/neutered.   Sometimes when they fight/ wrestle etc, Sam does the strangest thing.  He will back up, and stick his butt in her face.     I...

    Another poop question

    Samwise- who is a year old, has been scooting his butt on the floor for a couple of months.  Googled it and found out it was an anal sac problem.  So he went in today for his yearly checkup, and I had the vet tech check his glands..  The right one was empty but the left one was full.  Paid to...

    Curly tail

    Samwise- the cute little orange tabby we adopted in August from the pound- has this cute little body "quirk".  He doesn't hold his tail up in the air- at times it's almost parallel to his body   Most of the time he does it when he's really happy or playing.  From the bit of internet research...

    16 week old kitten and worms

    I asked this question at the vet and kind of got an answer.  We got Sam a month ago from Animal Control.  Our city had just opened up this very pretty new shelter- we were looking for a "friend" for Holly, and the price wasn't bad.  He had beginning shots, we paid $50 to get him neutered (I...

    New baby

    So after hearing "When are we getting a friend for Holly" for 6 months, Friday we went to animal control and brought home a kitten.  Orange tabby- name is Samwise Gamgee ( my kids like LOTR).  Getting him "fixed" though may wind up being a hassle.  I went through animal control.  Wanted to do...

    Offshoot of QOD- Cell phones

    Ok I just answered Weds question of the day and I just HAD to ask this one.  How old do you think kids need to be to have a cell phone?  Smartphone?  Do you think it matters if you've still got a landline in the house or not?  Just curious.  My oldest was in 6th grade when EVERYONE started...

    LItter box ideas?

    No- not one about not wanting to poop in the box.  Holly is fine with that.  We put a cat door in the garage, and we had the litter box out in the garage.  Yeah I know- not fun for the kitty to have to go out into the cold garage to poop- but it's not like we locked her out there or anything. ...

    Tankless Water heater

    So I figure since many people are on this board- I'd ask this question.  Do you have a tankless?  Do you like it?  Is there a problem getting hot water to where it needs to be? It would of course- been better if I'd been able to ask this question BEFORE we changed out our tank.  But we had no...

    Strange behaviour

    Poor stressed out kitty. Today Holly has spent most of the day hiding under blankets.  In our bed.  Under our bed.  Under a blanket in a chair ( where I sat down and quickly got up because the chair was softer than I remembered).  Under the dresser.  She does it when it's cold (it's actually...

    Petsmart Adoptions

    I've seen that several of you work with non-profits that hold adoption clinics at Petsmart.  Got a couple of questions.    We just lost our 2nd animal in 6 months.  I'm thinking it was heart failure that took her.  We can't find her right now and she was doing the "hiding thing" that Jasper was...

    What do you all think?

    This isn't about cats.  It's about kids- high school ones.  My first question to you all is this- when you were in high school (or if you still are), did you ride the bus or drive yourself to school?  I have a Senior and a Freshman.  The senior got her licence over last summer.  A year ago-...

    How about commercials that are just too funny?

    The favorites around here.  The State Farm commercial with Jake at 3 in the morning.  The kids like that one.  The insurance company one with the wife who wants to thank Hank her husband for life insurance so her son can go to college.  Any one of the ones with Allstate and "Mayhem".  Mayhem...

    What to do?

    I just don't know.  And I guess I don't want advice per say- it's MY life.  Just an ear to listen.  And give feedback. Not really cat-related.    So ODD is scheduled to go off to college in the fall.  I so want to do SOMETHING with my life.  A year and a half ago- I was halfway through...

    Slow loading of pages

    Just a general question- and the mods can move this if I've got it in the wrong place.  I've noticed that the boards tend to load kind of slow.  Sometimes it's frustratingly slow- other times it's just kind of slow.  I do have a desktop in the house that has problems with speed, but there's...

    miliary dermatitis

    Poor Jasper.  He's the most needy cat I've ever had.  He's had this skin condition for quite some time.  We got fed up with him just looking so miserable and scratching all the time (and having these bumps all over his butt) that I took him in yesterday to the vet.  This is what she said he had-...
