She doesn’t let me see her belly. Always sits on all fours.
Ginger females are unusual. It’s a shame she won’t really be able to find a proper home there in Turkey.
i am very concerned for her
Vic was very poorly this week after eating a “bad mouse”. Two expensive trips to the vet and a course of antibiotics later he’s back to his old self
There's a Siamese who lives just round the corner from me who is almost always there when I walk past, and always ecstatic to see me. This morning, he - I think it's a he, but I'm not certain - made a few pathetic mews before instantly rolling on his back for a tummy-tickle.
I can't quite understand why tummy-tickling is so enjoyable to some cats, but an anethema to others, including my own.
Bernard demonstrates why his original owner named him "Metro". His mankini. (He slept like that for a good hour or so; toes curling up so it must have been good dreams)
"Hmm, I wonder what would happen if I pushed that thing towards the edge..."
Karl (tabby) and Rosa (white/black) this morning, Frida having a wash in the background.
Karl is getting snipped and chipped on thursday, had catflap installed on Saturday, need to program it for Frida and teach her how to use it which might not be easy. Think Karl will be easiest to get programmed and get using it and he'll teach the others. Rosa planned to be speyed around the start of Feb so there should be a couple of weeks where they can go out and she can't.
Rosa still very shy, doesn't come for food, can't get close enough to try handling her. Karl I think will be ok once he's a bit older and more independent from his mother. Frida doesn't come for strokes but wants them when I go to her.
All the kittens who left are doing well, all with new cats and all getting on with them
Received a book I ordered about cats which is very amusing. Includes chapters about how to talk to your cat about guns, drugs, internet safety, satanism etc
I think my crazy wee cat has settled in
found quite a big claw on the floor bit concerned
cat gets their claws stuck quite a bit
do they come out more easily as they get older?
Looks like the Lords Prayer is being said...
Think it's probably normal, is the mog limping or in pain ? They need to sharpen their claws (apologies if you know this but claws kinda grow in layers and its the top layer they lose) but tend to do this less as they get older. Do they have access to a scratching post or outside (where they might scratch a tree our fence post or something) ?
E2a trimming claws is an easy job and painless for the cat-but not all of them are happy with it being done...
i thought she was limping a while ago but not recently, she hardly goes out at all and not seen her do any scratching when out
she does have a post that she doesn't seem to use, used to scratch the walls a bit but not seen evidence of that lately either
mostly sleeps and mooches about the house to different sleeping spots
Cats wearing hats made from their own hair.
State of it
There is a cat somewhere, underneath all that fur.
It’s pretty common so no need to worry. I keep them (along with discarded whiskers) - why? I’ve no idea
Like Gong’s Pot Head Pixies
I had a really thick whisker dig into me the other day when I was sitting on the sofa. It really hurt.
picture of the original and best (just for balance!)
Peggy pulls her claws off with her teeth (and so did Charlie before her). It's generally just the outer sheath that comes off, think a snake shedding its skin to make way for a new batch. If it doesn't look hollow then you've probably got more to worry about.
I've still got loads of Charlie's whiskers, and loads of his zoom groom'd felty fur. Don't think I'll ever be able to get rid of it.
For the record, like you need my approval, you did a good thing there. You should be right pleased with herself.
Ozzie has been going really mad the last few days. Really demanding for loving and running up and down chasing anything like a mad thing.
I think it's because Orson doesn't mind the cold as much as she does, so he will fuck off out and spend the day outside as if it was summer and she will go out, go 'it's freaking freezing' and come back in sharpish, then have a shed load of energy with no one to do it with!!
My dear Mr Toes!!
chloe under the stairs:
Although she has pissed me off just now by waking me up at half six in the fucking morning on a Sunday.
We had some colour coordinated kitten cuddles yesterday
