i have two cats. one has been missing for over a month now but he’s still my baby and i’m not losing hope that i will find him..
anyway, here are my cats’ nicknames
chibi (the one who is missing) - cheebz, cheeb meister, gary (the snail), cheebz dweeb, garfield (his favorite treat is lasagna), son, son-son
kibanna (plays fetch) - kibbin, kibbin mclibbin, cob (she likes corn on the cob), kiban, kevin
my boyfriend also sometimes calls her red whore/orange whore when she’s being naughty lmao (she’s a ginger cat and has the most personality i’ve ever seen)
i’m sure there’s more nicknames but that’s the ones we call them most frequently. we call them by their nick names more often than their government names lol
just curious if anyone else does this lol
Side by side photos of your younger and older cat
It's that time again, and for this one you'll need to be going back and forward. Dig up the photos you can find of your 'young' cat and another of them as their older selves. If you adopted your cat later in their life, that's fine.. just post the oldest one you have with the newest.
If you can place the two side by side as one photo, please do.
Otherwise just post the two photos.
The winner will receive a rather wonderful TCS T-shirt!

Submissions will be accepted for the next seven days.
Something to remember.. If you would like a heads-up on what the next topic...
I know breeder who is now saying his cat is on her 6th pregnancy; I am worried about the mother; after how many pregnancies is it dangerous to the mother's health to have another litter?
We all know some cats have a head on their shoulders! My Sirvester for example is scary smart with putting 'two and two together.'
He can't open doors like Reese can, but my jaw dropped when I saw him look at an A/C window unit being hauled downstairs, then BOLT to the other end of the house to check the window to see if it was open. He KNEW that that A/C unit wasn't blocking the window anymore. That's some pretty logical thinking if you ask me!
Smo groomed her stomach bald over the past month and developed a couple hot spots, and we realized it was because of the new cat tree we got - it was treated with some strong-smelling chemicals that Smo had an allergic reaction to. We removed the cat tree a couple weeks ago and she's already getting her undercoat back in.
I used the Furminator on her during the overgrooming/cat tree phase, and I don't want to use it on her again without cleaning it in case there's chemical residue left behind. What's the best way to do this? It seems like there are parts that could get waterlogged if washed, but I don't know if wiping down the brush would get all the chemicals off.
I have been taking in strays and ferals for as long as I can remember. I have been able to find homes for several, but still have 8 babies at my house that need new homes. I will be keeping 9 cats and currently have 17 at my house.
These babies pictured, plus one deaf cat whose adoption is pending, all need good homes.
I'm looking for any advice on rehoming and making up contracts. I do all of this myself, I am not working with a rescue group, but want to make sure these babies get the right homes.
I had a bad experience a few months ago where I rehomed one of my tortie babies and made it clear to the new owner that I would take her back if it didn't work out. Today I was informed that they had to rehome her. I asked for the new owners number, but they didn't have it. I am absolutely devastated. These people seemed to really love cats, and they told me that my baby was given to a lady with a little girl. I hope she's well, but it upsets me so bad not knowing where she is....
I have a problem with my 7-months old male cat Max. In the last couple of weeks, he's becoming more aggressive and yesterday he attacked my leg, drawing blood. I have no idea what might be causing this and I am getting quite worried that I might have to say goodbye to him if he keeps attacking me.
He's been to the vet and he seems to be in perfect health. He is an adopted stray cat and he's been with us (me and my boyfriend) for about 6 months now. We suppose that he hasn't had a lot of contact with his mother, as he was quite sick when we got him and totally alone. He's always been playful, but we've tried to discourage playful aggression, like biting hands and feet, etc. Recently, however, I am starting to notice that he doesn't seem to be playing anymore, but rather attacking more aggressively. I don't believe I have provoked him in any way, he attacked me when I was laying down napping.
There is another detail. A couple of months ago, we neutered him. However, it...
This is my first post on here. This isn't a serious medical emergency, but I've always wondered about this and I never got a straight-forward response or diagnosis from the vet (Vet: "He's just weird" [end quote]). I guess I kind of want to see what you all might think about it or if any of you know of another cat with it, because I've never seen it in another. To start, I have a cat named Capone and he is about seven-years-old. I lived near a farm and we would end up feeding a ton of runaway barn cats, and Capone stole my heart. So, we brought him in the house and he became my baby. An interesting thing he's always had are extended third eyelids. It might fluctuate from day-to-day, but it's always there. I've tried researching why this might happen, but I can't find many non-illness related causes. I read about Haws Syndrome and he does have some gastrointestinal issues on and off again, but according to my research the eyelid thing is usually temporary. I guess the...
Im relaxing in my bed with my 6 wk old kitty and all of a sudden I see something crawl on his fur!!! My husband tried to catch it but it was fast! It was the size of a lice bug and a dark color, brown or black. Didn’t get a close up of it and it’s still on his body! I only saw one. Wth could this be???? Please help! Should I bath my kittens? But if it’s some kind of parasite would it even help?? What’s the best way to wash them?
(Picture because he’s so cute)
I am at home with the flu and have noticed everyone seems extra attentive. I do believe my kitties are trying to take care of me.
Piccolo kept coming to check on me and was extra cute and cuddly.
Jade slayed an evil contact lens cover and brought it to me because everyone likes presents when they are sick... and last but not least...
SULLY BRAVED ALL THE SCARY CATS TO COME OUT OF HIS ROOM AND SIT WITH ME AND KEEP ME COMPANY!! HE'S STILL HERE! IT'S A SICKNESS MIRACLE! HaHa...
How do your kitties take care of you??
Last year I adopted a stray - an ex housecat who had been abandoned by her old family. It's one of the best things I've ever done as I absolutely adore her.
Last week, I ended up adopting a kitten who needed a home asap. Her owner unfortunately passed away and her family desperately needed someone to take her in. So, I ended up with a kitten with no time to prepare.
I'm now trying to get both cats to accept each other. While it would be lovely if they became best buddies, I'd be overjoyed if they could just tolerate each other.
The new kitten (Lilo) has had her own room since we collected her and Belle (my existing cat) wasn't allowed in for the first few days. They've seen and sniffed each other, but if they get a little too close, they growl and hiss. This seems to be because they are scared and not aggressive.
We've managed to get them to eat at opposite ends of the same room without then bothering each other and we're slowly moving their bowls closer together. Belle...
We had our 6 month old Siamese-tiger cat mix breed kitten spayed in October. When we picked her up, she was wobbly and the vet said that she was probably just recovering from the anesthetics. Days later she continued with this behavior and she has never improved since then. We took her to the vet after seeing she was lethargic one day and they found her to be dehydrated but with no other symptoms and her blood tests and x-ray came back great. She has large pupils, and continued to be wobbly and walking with imbalance in her back legs. In everything I've read online she suffered some sort of brain damage during the surgery and it would never get any better, I found several research papers where Siamese cats are susceptible to a mix of Ketamine/Valium used in surgeries to anesthetize them where it could cause them to have low oxygen during surgery or cause other complications, just something for others to watch for. So we accepted that our poor kitten was special and would be...
When we first got our new cat Dexter, he had ringworm. It cleared up quickly with some prescription shampoo from the vet and we really haven't thought twice about it.
The other day, Evie stretched and I noticed she had a small patch of fur missing below her armpit. Dexter plays rough, so I figured she had just gotten scratched or had a bit of fur pulled out. The area was pink but not red or inflamed, and scabbed over.
Tonight, Emerson stretched out and I noticed a strangely circular hair-covered scab on his leg. Does anyone with more experience with ringworm want to chime in?
Me and my cousin adopted a kitten a month ago and finally their vaccinations are complete, and the vet allowed them to play with each other. We want to introduce them Monday while my cousins are together because of new years while we celebrate. Any advice? Anything I could find online were methods that take multiple days while we will only have 5-6 hours probably.
Here are some pics of the kittens btw:

I have two cats that are 10 years old. In July I took in a mom and her 5 kittens, got them all spayed/neutered. Mom took a few months, but eventually I was able to socialize them all. I adopted out three of the kittens and we decided to keep two kittens and the mom. The first three months the mom and kittens were in a separate room. My two cats did not seem stressed at all nor did they seem interested in the cats on the other side of the door.
I adopted out three of the kittens and we decided to keep two kittens and the mom. In October when when the kittens went to their new home and we decided to keep the rest I did slow introductions, including feeding and playing on opposite sides of the door and site swapping. However my 10 year old boy seems to be getting worse. In the beginning he would cry, run up to one of the new cats, bop them on the head then run away crying. He is now still doing that and has now added growling and crying as he runs around the house. I'm...
Sorry I haven't posting anything in awhile. We've been really busy this year. In November, my mom celebrated her 95th Birthday! So my brothers gave her a big party. I contributed some balloons, and one of my sister-in-laws added some pretty fall mum. I ended up putting them in one of our flower gardens. Hope they come back next year! Then we started getting ready for Christmas. Anyway, just wanted to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a Healthy, Happy New Year! Hope all your furbabies are having a safe Christmas!
Here is a Christmas picture I made of my three cats. Yes, we still have Gidget. Couldn't resist including her in on all the Christmas festivities. She's definitely having lots of fun! LOL
God Bless Everyone, and again, Merry Christmas!
Nancy, Rascal, Shadow and Gidget
