    Casper is in the Hospital

    Casper has been having problems with constipation again. Thankfully, we got him to the vet before it turned into megacolon, again. The vet says that he'll be okay but he has to stay overnight so that they can give him an enema to get him cleaned out. Casper had a case of megacolon, a couple of...

    How to tell if a female cat is fixed?

    We have a young, female cat that comes up to our back porch to see Casper, almost daily. They sniff each other through the screen door and it seems like they are becoming friends. Casper is fixed and he doesn't go outside but the other cat is free-roaming. She's really friendly and there...

    Stupid Human! You're supposed to BURY it!

    If we go to the bathroom and sit on the pot, Casper will sometimes come into the bathroom, go into his litter box and scratch around like he's burying something even though he hasn't left any "deposit." I guess that's because he's attached to his humans and thinks of them as part of his family...

    I Have To Make Casper Take His Medicine

    Casper had to go to the vet for a bad tooth. He ended up getting it pulled out. His right side upper canine tooth was so rotten it was loose. The vet pulled it out right there in the exam room. It was over in less than a minute. She gave him a shot of antibiotic and a 10-day course of pills...

    Hiding Under Bed After The Vet

    Casper just got home from the vet today. He had to stay overnight due to obstipation/megacolon. He came home today and has been under the bed ever since. A couple of days ago, Casper went off his food and wasn't going in his litter box. I called the vet in the morning and took half a day off...

    He Likes To Be Called "puddy-tat!"

    Our cat's name is "Casper." (Obviously... ;) ) He was named "Casper" when we adopted him but, since he was abandoned, he was probably named something else before we got him. His Girl-Human calls him, "Kitty-Kitty." He actually does know his real name but "Kitty" is what he knows best. So...

    Runs Away Then Attacks Scratching Post

    I've been noticing an interesting behavior with Casper which has me scratching my head. When I try to play with him or, sometimes, just approach him in order to pet him, he'll run to attack one of his scratching posts. (We have two scratching posts for Casper.) Casper has always been a...

    A Whole Year's Trust Gone Down the Drain! :(

    Casper got sick a few nights ago.  We had to take him to the Animal E.R. After much wringing of hands and wrenching of hair, Casper is home and he is on the mend. But now Casper has to take pills and he hates it! Casper is very picky about his food.  He NEVER eats food out of hand and is even...

    TV Show Makes Casper Go Crazy. ;)

    We've been watching this TV show from PBS called "The Story of Cats." http://www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/story-cats-about/14638/ It's all about cats from lions and tigers, all the way down to domestic house cats. It's a pretty good show. A worthwhile show if you can get PBS in your area. It's a...

    A Trail of Yarn

    Get a ball of yarn or twine. Pull out about ten feet or so. Walk around the house with the yarn trailing behind you. Kitty will soon follow and attack the tail of the yarn. He follows the end of the yarn through the living room...around the coffee table...down the hallway...up the...

    Meowing in the Morning

    Casper has always been a quiet cat.  He rarely makes a sound beyond purring.  He's the quietest cat I've ever seen. So... within the last week, he has been coming into the bedroom in the morning and meowing.  The first time he did it, we were kind of worried because it is so out of character...

    Cat-Safe Household Insecticides?

    It's the beginning of "Ant Season" here in these parts of Pennsyltucky. Ants are just a fact of life in these parts. We just have to deal with them. The first line of defense is to keep the kitchen and dining areas scrupulously clean. Don't leave food out. Don't leave dirty dishes in the...

    Cat Dictionary, Anybody?

    I would have thought that The CatSite would have a cat dictionary of terms that cat owners use when talking about their cats and cat behaviors but, I searched and didn't find one.  I even Googled and didn't find very many websites that have cat lexicon. Here are a few words from my cat...

    Casper's Vision

    I hope I'm not being too worrisome but I've noticed that Casper seems to have trouble seeing well. First, he gets black "eye boogers."  We can wipe them off with a wet Kleenex but they come back within a day. He's been like this since we got him, two, going on three, months ago. Here's a...

    Shy Around Men??

    I was playing with Casper last night and I noticed some behavior that makes me think. Casper has always been partial to his girl-human but has been skittish around me, the guy-human. He'll sit on her lap and purr while she pets him an holds him but it's a rare day when he even sits on the sofa...

    Cat Circles?

    Anybody got any clues why cats like circles? Newspapers, I get.  Crinkly, wrinkly fun!  The idea is simple.  Make a circle on the floor.  Can be anything.  Tape.  Random objects.  A line of chalk.  Anything. A few minutes later, your cat will come over and sit inside the circle. It's not a...

    Hello from Casper's Humans

    Hello! :). We're Casper's humans. He came to live with us a few days before Christmas. We adopted him from the Animal Welfare Society. We don't know his whole story but he was rescued from outdoors. He is acclimated to humans so we think he was abandoned or lost. Casper will have a good...
