    I met Ginge, a relatively new cat on my walk into town, earlier. Previously he's been very affectionate, but today he just trotted past me as I if was an insignificant blight on his life.

    Hi everyone, I am sorry I am not here very often these days.

    Just want to say hi - Jakey and Sonic are in good health. Radar has a vet appointment on Wednesday because he has been hiccuping a lot, making loud gulping noises when he has been drinking water, and has a very messy ear that he is scratching at - I am hoping it is just something that can be dealt with easily - ear drops or something to sort it - but worried it may be a bigger problem

    Is it possible to stroke that fluffy belly, or is a trap?

    (one of my cats, Jakey, lets me stroke his belly - it is a rare thing though!)

    They can be strange that way. Bernard lets us rub his belly (he positively encourages it - trills and rolls over when he wants it), and play with his paws. Which is a first for me in cat ownership. Normally paws are off-limits, even with the odd belly-rubbing cat.

    Yeah Jakey loves his belly being rubbed, and all 3 of them are ok with me holding their paws. They're alright with being picked up and hugged too, which many cats aren't too keen on. I don't think my lot are in any way normal or average though - they all had a good start in life (which is what we should all want for every cat).

    Total trap. You can see the evil in her face!!!

    Luckily her brother loves his belly being rubbed so we do have an outlet!

    Both our boys like their bellies rubbed and their paws held - esp. when they curl up next to us in bed. I have been warned off doing that to other peoples’ cats for fear of a good scratching...

    Named new one Charlie(Chaplin), as the black bit looks like a moustache.

    Took both the vets today as Charlie has had a runny nose and sneezes, apparently nothing to worry about, lungs clear and eyes okay.
    Milly had another worming tablet as she chucked up 2 round worms last night (boak).
    Chazza has forgiven me for vet visit but Milly has hidden under the bed and is snubbing me.

    Totally. Those eyes are reminiscent of Joe Pesci in Goodfellas.

    My cats eat exactly the same thing but Madam funny-face's shit smells *disgusting*. Idiot cat's shit barely smells at all.

    Why?!

    Thats the same here. One of them smells like rotten cabbage but not all the time. I don't chop and change their food either?

    The dog picks millys toys up and drops them in front of her to play as well. She never gets her claws out with sash but does with me? :confused:

    Idiot cat is his nickname. He has a proper name too. But we call him idiot cat (or the furry fuckwit).... Because he's an idiot. It's what we have called him for the five years we have had him- as he's fallen off things, got stuck on things, tried to make friends with a chair, decided the cat flap was a convenient-height window etc. He's a complete idiot.

    I wondered at first if it was change of diet because she was new- but it's at three months now and it's *gross*

    She farts when she is upset too. And periodically wanders into the room, farts and wanders out again :confused: vet says she is fine..... it's a good thing she's cute

    I recovered the small chair in our room (in grey stripes, it wasn't even furry) and he tried to groom it, did lots of face rubbing and licking then meowed at it crossly for about three days. I put the chair in the spare room after a bit, he was driving me potty.

    My late loancat had a creepy obsession with the fabric of a sofabed's interior - every time I unfolded it he'd be right in there and stay licking away at it for HOURS (with the fabric making creepy rasping noises) - I think it was the fishy/protein smell of fixative or upholsterer's glue.
