Title: Royal Felines

 I am very fond of felines. Here is a place to post your cat pictures and stories.  All Felines are royal. Here are two  of mine- Tachi and Yoshi.

Jasmine of Marsh Manor saunters in to present herself to the queen and her royal feline court. She bows with a swish of her aristocratic tail and proceeds to the nearest vacant pillow.

She is followed by Pooka Baggins of the Pixielynx tribe, who dashes in after her more refined friend, looks panicked, bows quickly and dashes for the nearest cubby hole. A moment later, she cautiously reappears and, acting as though she wasn't really spooked, curls up near Jasmine.

{sorry, no pictures  :-\}

 I Love their names, Tremayne!  Welcome to your Royal Felines!  Do they enjoy catnip? I shall ring for some right now!

Jasmine will have a completely uncouth squirming fit rolling around in it but I'm afraid Pooka, who probably needs it most, will be unaffected. Of course, if you let loose a magical swarm of flying bugs, Pooka will utterly forget she's in a new environment and engage in ridiculous acrobats focusing solely on the hunt.

And I must warn your majesty not to wiggle your toes--even in the slightest--beneath your robes or Pooka will mistake them as sneaky vermin that must be pounced upon.

  **POOF!**A Magical swarm of  cute but harmless flying bugs  appears to delight the felines!
Yoshi and Batman join in the fun of leaping to catch them! What can be more fun that watching cat acrobatics?  Acrocats? LOL!
I will try to keep my toes still!

The Royal Felines are indeed most majestic, as is befitting.  Siamese is my favorite breed, having been owned by one in my wasted youth. The loyal feline of your humble servant is a happy ragbag who magically appeared at mine doorstep many years ago and made herself to home.  Mlle. Spooky is black and plays with the Pom pound puppy if must needs demand.  Truth be told, they have, like myself, comfortably settled in the ripe neighbourhood of middle-age.

Owned and operated by Isis and Osiris, the Egypkits. Both white bellies, Isis is tabby on top and Osiris is gray on top. Isis is the enternal kitten, more cute than the law allows, playful and yet aloof, eats a lot of the good stuff but still manages to maintain her girlish figure. Osiris is bigger and HE'S THE LOVE BUG! Pet me, pet me, pet me. Kiss me as you like. Pet me, pet me, pet me.

I tend to be mythical for my names. Before the Egypkits, there was a black cat with green eyes whose name was Morgan (short for Morgan de La Fey, of course). I still recall that day when I first met her, when I held her in my palm at the shelter and she looked up at me as if to say,

"THIS ONE IS MINE! I'VE GOT HIM!"

Pictures probably later.

This is the royal feline of the Rayfe Palace. He is quite spoiled and loves to sit in the lap of the lady of the house, Element, when she is using the magic box. He really is his momma's boy. Only my lap will he snuggle.

Leading the way into the Great Hall is Princess Diana Stormbringer, a purebred Persian of the lightest grey color.  Following her closely is Asmodeus, the Dark Prince, a black tomcat, Baron Von Scruffinator (Gray and white tom), and Joseph, the court jester (aka perpetual kitten) another black tom. 

These four are members of the realm of The Purple Dragon and they ensure their keepers care quite well for them.  (Pictures to follow when I can figure out how to upload them).

 Ggyptkits are sure cuties!
I Love the names of your cat, Purple Dragon! Can't wait to see pictures.
 My FuzzBall has had too much heat and acts like he does not feel good. Keeping him inside today. Too hot out for a very fuzzy Ragdoll Cat.
The Siamese love the heat.

This is my royal feline Holly. She's part Ragdoll, and is a rescue kitty from the animal shelter. She knows she makes the rules around my house.

Ragdoll fur is really something else, I agree. My Holly's fur is very silky, as well as long and thick. She also strangely doesn't mind being petted against the grain of her fur.

 What beautiful pictures and lovely Felines, RedHat Queen! Welcome!  Always great to meet another cat lover! Purrrs!
 Send feline prayers my way. Fuzzball is ailing and needs magical healing thoughts! I am worried about him.
He was missing for a day- just under the house is my guess- but I can tell he is not himself. Listless and not eating much and  has lost weight. He just sits in a corner.
 If I see no improvement- he goes to the vet tomorrow.

Queen Bonnie, I surely will send prayers for Fuzzball.  I don't function when one of my babies gets ill.
Our Kabuki had major surgery a year ago and almost died (he is now a she) and I spent 2 weeks off work (lost all my vacation) in order to help him recover.

Sending prayers up.

 Thanks so much, Mari! I had a cat that had that same operation. Plumbing problem solved though! It was worth the expense.
 I have so many old kitties.  All are special to me. I hope Fuzz will be OK. He is not one of the old ones.

 Alas! Tis kidney failure. I was not able to say good bye to my friend today. I am doing what I can to give us both time to get used to this. It will not be easy. Fuzz is responding well to the IV fluids. He might be able to come home tomorrow. I will take it from there.  Enjoy the time we have left together and know good bye is coming soon.

Post by: DT_Masters on June 10, 2008, 01:48:48 AM
Queen Bonnie: sort of been there. Morgan passed on due to cancer but she had a very pampered, more than normal, summer. When the time finally came, in the last hour or so before the appointment, I was in her room with her, lying on the floor, talking of when we first met, the times we had together. I held her in a towel in my arms as Mom drove us the ten minute trip to the vet. Been there and it is not easy to reflect about it.

I wish you both all the best to include that when the time comes, there will be no question of is it too soon, that someone else can drive for you, and that the trip is short. Thru the summer, I had great fears of making that trip, wondering if it was too soon and being in anguish driving the hour trip to the vet while Morgan was in the back. Fortunally on all accounts, we were spared such.
Title: Re: Royal Felines
Post by: Queen Bonnie on June 10, 2008, 07:38:35 AM
 I have had cats all my life and have been through the difficult decision on ending their suffering many times. It is never easy. I live close by the vet. I will enjoy the time we have together. As long as he does not suffer- he can have a good life- but there is no cure for kidney failure. I am coming to terms with that sad fact.
I am hoping Fuzzball can come home today. Time will tell.

Post by: Queen Bonnie on June 14, 2008, 10:16:56 AM
 Fuzzball is home - but not doing great. He is still on antibiotics. He hates the meds- but I manage to get it into him. He is eating a bit- but I can tell he just does not feel good. Poor kitty. I give him lots of love.  I hope he might bounce back- but the outlook is not great. I am sad.
Meanwhile my other ailing cat, Tachi is doing very well on his thyroid meds. he is gaining weight and his fur is sleek again.  The rest of the Royal Felines are doing well. I still have my renndezflu symptoms hanging on- but doing OK.
Title: Re: Royal Felines

Du and Singe are the most wonderful pair of cats. While both are still young (Singe is 7 months old and Du is 13 months) they both are fully clawed but extremely gentle with the grandbabies. Singe will let me clip then file his claws. Du endures it...barely. But they do NOT use their claws on people. They pick up pens, pencils, pennies, cat toys, or anything left with in their reach. Du loves to try to type on the lap top and I am convinced he has late night friends he I.M.'s when I am not looking. My three year old granddaughter calls them puppy cats. She thinks they match the pack of Chihuahuas that they co-habitat with.
Here is Du playing with *HIS* dog, Tempest.

I'm wondering about our Feline Lords, Ladies, fools and scoundrels, various relationships to water.

Pooka is a dipper. She prefers to get her water by dipping her paw in the bowl and licking up the drop that sticks to it.

Jasmine is more conventional. Her only interest in water is the way it dribbles down the shower walls--or down windows in the rain. Then she seems to be working out the physics of the thing rather than treating the racing droplets as skittering insects.

I cat I had earlier in my life, thought the water left around the drain after a shower was nectar of the gods.

And here we have a photo of "Princess Diana Stormbringer", just doing her normal looking regal and looking down upon her kingdom.

And here we have a picture of The Dark Prince Asmodeus doing what he enjoys doing most... sleeping.

I know there is a dog (Monster The Mighty Mauler with his Tail of DOOOOOOM), in this photo, but it is also a photo of Joseph, The Court Jester as well.  The funny thing here is that Monster thinks he is a cat... albeit a 85 - 90 lb cat, but a cat is what he thinks he is, and acts like one at all times. I'm just waiting for the day I come home and he is sprawled across the back of the loveseat like the cats do taking a nap.

I wish I did, unfortunately I do not.  She just showed up at our fortress last summer and thats about all I know.  Thanks for the kinds words my friend, as we too thought that her little tortie markings were quite stunning as well.

Post by: Escarlata on June 27, 2008, 08:55:24 PM
It's been over a year since I finally decided that Cali and I were just never going to be able to be happy together. She wanted to be snuggled and loved and I wanted to provide it to her but, every time we tried, I had severe allergic reactions to her. Having her here and not being able to love on her was breaking my heart and she pined for attention. She is now in a setting that is loving and peaceful and I've taken awhile to come to terms with the loss and settle in.

Now it feels like time for a new little furball to join our home, so we began the search. It really didn't take long, a close friend had taken in a stray just as she delivered six kittens. The babes were raised in the house with much love and human interaction. Tuesday night a little marmalade tabby male journeyed here to the Shadow's Hold to interview for the position of lap warmer and general mischief maker. We spent 3 hours together, he wandered the house exploring, and I made sure to get a good dose of cat in all the places that can set off my allergies. Absolutely no reaction to the little guy. I am ecstatic. Sunday afternoon, Prussia (Prush for short) will come to his new home.

Yep, the colors in the picture are accurate, he's almost exactly the color of the carpet. It should make the first few weeks interesting until we find the spots where he thinks it's neat to hide.

Selkie, our grey cat has an abscess or something behind her right eye causing it to bulge out. She's on eye salve, antibiotics, an anti-inflammatory, and a pain killer, it's just a wait and see thing now. Based on an ultrasound the abscess is not a defined area that can be drained, more of a general inflamed/swollen area behind her eye. She was a little perkier when she got home today compared to when we took her to the ER Sunday morning, but that may be because she is on pain killers. Glad we have more than one cat and at varying ages, I'ld hate to lose her and be totally cat-less

Awww, poor kitty. Have they checked the cats teeth to make sure they are not infected? My cat had infected teeth and it gave her symptoms in her eyes and nose for years. I had no idea that was the cause until after she had her teeth pulled. She had been to the vet many times and they noticed her eyes being goopy, but nobody ever connected it to her teeth.

I hope your cat gets better.
Title: Re: Royal Felines
Post by: groomporter on July 21, 2008, 07:35:58 PM
Yeah, we had all three cat's teeth checked in April when their shots were updated since we've had tooth issues with our past older "kids" and her teeth seem to be OK. The blood tests are also checking for a fungal infection which can come from soil infected by pigeon droppings. -She slips outside once in a while especially if we're out lounging on the patio she wants to be out to party too. Another possibility is she -might- have bit down on something that pierced her soft pallet and introduced bacteria. A least the swelling seems to be down for now although she hasn't eaten anything since we brought her home.
Title: Re: Royal Felines
Post by: groomporter on July 22, 2008, 04:11:15 PM
Well, baring complications the Selkie cat seems to have turned the corner. Although her eye is very red, the swelling is down quite a bit. She's been demanding pets once in a while, she's eating and drinking finally as of this afternoon, and she even tried to convince me to let her outside.

-Knocking on wood. It was a little scary how fast her eye began to swell/bulge out in just a couple hours on Sunday morning after we noticed she was acting rather lethargic. Now it's just a matter of torturing her with drugs for another week or so, fortunately it's all in liquid form so its easier to administer than pills.

 Cats are strong little creatures! Glad your kitty is doing better. It is hard when they don't feel good!

Hold good thoughts for Prussia please. Tomorrow we take care of the little boy issue before he realizes that he's a little boy. He's growing very fast, is extremely curious, and well loved. He thinks there's something inside the printer that must be killed, wishes there was a way to get to the bird feeder from the office window, and is sure that any level surface in the house is made for his enjoyment. He has assigned me the duties of mushball and sanitation engineer. The Ranger is the official toy retrieval and nourishment replishment officer. All in all, he has us well trained and is getting the Shadow's Hold exactly the way he wants it.

If there are any forum members in the DFW area, there's some Siamese-mix kittens available for adoption.  This message was posted today on the ORAC Sci-Fi Club (http://www.oracscifi.com/) Yahoo Group (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/orac/):

Quote from: James
Kittens up for adoption

http://www.dontbuyarlington.com/images/kittens/

The blind Siamese feral that I finally caught in April was pregnant and had five kittens 7 weeks ago. They're all well-socialized and doing well, and will be ready to adopt in a few weeks. I've already got 8 rescues that I'm caring for.

I am keeping the mom because it wasn't her fault to be born blind and abandoned, plus I know that there's nobody that would ever take care of her if I don't.  That makes 9 that I'm keeping and just can't handle 14 cats so the kittens have to go no matter what.

The blue-eyed brown-nosed kitty and the chocolate brown one seem to be spoken for off of craigslist for now but that may change as craigslist seems to have a lot of flakes on it lately.

All but the brown-nosed are female.

Let me know ASAP if someone would like to provide a home for a kitty.

James

I can put you in contact with James if you're interested in the kittens, and don't want to join the ORAC Yahoo Group.

Take Care,
David Baldock

My boy Nugget has not been doing too well the last few days.  When we returned from Santa Fe almost 3 weeks ago, we discovered a huge walnut-sized lump on his back leg in between his ankle and his knee.  It didn't look or feel like a reaction to a bug bite, because it was really hard.  He took a trip to the vet, and the doc said it was possible he had hit his leg (we wouldn't know as we were gone for the weekend, even though someone was checking on the cats and dog daily) and the swelling was a result of some of the fluid in his bones had come out.  He pulled out some of the fluid, hoping it would have pus in it (which would mean an infection) but there wasn't any.  So he's not exactly sure what it is, and he did not rule out bone cancer.  He said it was a very big possibility, even though he is a really healthy cat otherwise, considering his age.  He is somewhere between 14-16 years old, we're not sure because we found him as a stray 12 years ago.

Nugget's been on a round of antibiotics and some other anti-inflammatory drugs this week to see if it would help the swelling any.  He's been taking the drugs since Friday, and nothing has really happened.  The decrease in swelling has been so minimal it's barely possible to tell.  But, more concerning still, he's been vomiting almost daily for about a week now.  And it's really like, projectile puke.  I've never seen anything like it. 

Today, he refused to come out of his kennel in the morning, dad had to pull him out.  And he's been refusing to eat or drink all day.  (Last night, he ate all his soft food and spit the pill in it back out again.)  He won't even eat cheese, which is his favorite human food treat.  (Usually we have to keep him away from the queso dip, because he loves it--now we're begging him to eat it and he won't.) 

I believe he is going to go back to the vet on Friday for x-rays and more tests to determine if it is cancer.  I really hope that he perks up a bit, and maybe today he is just not feeling too good.  Either way, it really makes me sad...:(

This is him, last Christmas.  His ear folded over last year after getting a hematoma in it--the vet did not lance it correctly and the cartilage in his ear basically collapsed.  It doesn't bother him though.

 Hugs Zoe. It does not sound good. Especially the not eating part. Let us know what it is. He is a sweet looking kitty. I had one with a crumpled ear a long time ago.
 I hope Nugget will be OK.

Title: Re: Royal Felines
Post by: PurpleDragon on October 06, 2008, 08:16:29 AM
If he is not eating there is definitely something wrong with him. (Which you already knew from the growth on the leg).  I hope the vet can figure it out and get it fixed.

One of our brood of felines (Baron Von Scruffinator) has a similar sitution with his ear where there was an owie there and it did not heal right so now the ear is "bent" over.  Doesnt' bother him either. 
Title: Re: Royal Felines
Post by: Zoë on October 06, 2008, 01:25:34 PM
He is doing better the last few days and is definitely eating again.  He finished off all his medication but nothing happened to the lump on his leg, it is still there.  So we are still awaiting the final diagnosis, but it looks like it will probably end up being cancer.  There are not many other options for his kind of symptoms and the lump.  He has also been drinking a LOT which is apparently one of the signs.  So we will see what happens.  If it turns out to be cancer the only thing that could be done would be amputating the leg at the hip, which would be very expensive, so we are thinking we will most likely let him live it out, as it were.  With the exception of that one bad day, he seems to be doing okay otherwise, and until he really starts to get miserable, he should be okay.  I will keep you updated on him. 
Title: Re: Royal Felines
Post by: Queen Bonnie on October 06, 2008, 02:11:34 PM
 Eating again is good news! I had a cat with lymphoma. Went to Texas A&M and had him diagnosed and got meds. Expensive and only bought him about a month extra time. Never easy!  I also had an amputee cat. He was young and did OK on 3 legs. Even hunted. It was a lot to go through though.
 Hope your kitty does well.
Hugs, Zoe.

My Fairemily,

Please add one of our Royal Felines, Joseph (pictured below with Monster the Mighty Mauler), to your thoughts and prayers.  He is currently at the vets with an IV Catheter and IV Fluids to hopefully fix his problem.  Sometime between the time he was let out on Sunday morning (all was well at that point), and when we got home, he became blocked and unable to urinate. I took him to the emergency hospital when we got home (1:30 AM Monday) and Amalphia picked him up at 6:30 AM Monday to get him to our regular vet.

(http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l268/Dragon3802/JosephandMonsterLookingCute.jpg)

I did get to go by and visit him yesterday.  When he saw me coming he headbutted the cagedoor and as I opened the door and reached for him he headbutted my hand and began purring loudly.  The vet took this as a good sign, however he had not eaten yet by that time.  I have not yet gotten another update from the vets, and am waiting for Amalphia to let me know if she gets one.
Title: Re: Royal Felines
Post by: Queen Bonnie on October 14, 2008, 04:19:11 PM
 Joseph is in our thoughts and prayers! I hope he recovers! The urinary problems come on fast. I had one cat that had it. He had a plumbing operation and lived for many years with no problems! Hugs! Sad to hear of ailing kitties.
Title: Re: Royal Felines
Post by: PurpleDragon on October 15, 2008, 09:21:56 AM
Joseph update;

He ate overnight on Monday (YEAH), we should hear something today as to if there was any damage to his kidneys, and hopefully he will be coming home tonight.  We miss him bunches.  It wasn't the same the last couple nights going to sleep without him purring on my chest. 
Title: Re: Royal Felines
Post by: Queen Bonnie on October 15, 2008, 09:30:25 AM
 Eating is a very good sign! Hope he gets to come home. Do look into that plumbing operation. It cures the blockage so it does not happen again.
 I know just how you feel.  my Special cat , Tachi has all kinds of health problems. He sleeps with me. I have to board him at the Vet to go to TRF. I missed him Sunday when I got home. He is my Familiar. I have other kitties- but he knows what I am thinking. He is fighting Thyroid and diabetes. Needs 2 shots and 2 pills every day.  Sigh.
Title: Re: Royal Felines
Post by: PurpleDragon on October 17, 2008, 07:58:12 AM
HE'S HOME!!!!!!!!

WOW, you should have seen the reception I got from him when I got home. I picked him up (carefully) and he immediately began kneading my arm and trying to bury his head IN my chest he was headbutting me quite forcefully.  LOL.  Anyway, he is happy to be home and has been going to the litter box and producing more urine so that is also a good sign.  We are going to keep him inside for  a couple of weeks (a task all by itself) just to make sure all is well with him.  Thanks to everyone who sent thoughts and stuff ;)

Well, on a slighted related note, I had to cancel going to Renfest this weekend because I was out of enough personal power by the time I got done with all the affairs of Friday.

This one:
(http://a349.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/98/l_8507d8e149ba209e28bbf7933081106c.jpg)

(http://a245.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/122/l_c269ba0dd14cbac0e02442dad0e2f29c.jpg)

up at Mom's place, so I went up after work Friday morning to help Mom get the latter to the vet to have her checked out. One bite, rather deep, but more visually upsetting than actual. Shave the wound, antibiotics, and pain killers, the last she hadn't needed when I left yesterday.

And the former? Well, since I was there and the latter wasn't too crazy about doing anything but resting, she got two wonderful dog walks out of it by yours truly.

Mom's "kitten" got some petting, too. (Post her pics later)

Well that's an interesting thing. With a lot of our pets in the past generation, it's been a household of cats and dogs. Often, not always, some of the dogs act like the cats are "funny looking dogs" ........ and the cats MIGHT think the reverse ...... but I think cats are too smart to make that mistake.

Still, it was rather interesting the "discussion" that Osiris (the bottom cat in my avatar) and Widget (the aggressor dog in this little story) had once. Both love me intensely and Osiris was laying down the law to a very nervous Widget.

"He's my little boy, not yours! YOU CAN'T HAVE HIM! YOU STAY AWAY FROM HIM! OR ELSE!" (raised paw with claws) .......... so the conversation appeared.

This is the kitties daily cleaning routine.  The other kitty is Pippin and he's a very playful and silly kitty who technically belongs to my sister.

I wasn't sure if I should post this here or not, but figure since this is where everyone talks about their cats, I guess its as good a place as any. 

All you cat folks, I need some major help getting inside my cat's head.  We had unfortunately gotten behind on her  monthly flea meds and she had gotten flea dermatitis.  She's been back on the meds now for several weeks and is getting better with the itchiness.  However, she is holding a major grudge and has decided to make her opinion known by peeing on my kitchen counter.  She still uses the litter box to poo, and it's cleaned everyday, but I don't know what to do about the peeing.  She's obviously unhappy about something, I'm very unhappy, and she's ruining my counter. I don't even want to use that part of the counter now, even though I clean it with antibacterial cleaner and bleach.  I don't know what else to do.  I've tried locking her in the basement with the litter box in hopes of re-training her, but I think that makes her more spiteful.   I really don't want to have to get rid of her, but if this doesn't stop soon I may have no choice. I'm about at my wit's end.   Any thoughts or suggestions? 
Title: Re: Royal Felines
Post by: Queen Bonnie on December 12, 2008, 02:27:07 PM
 That is a bad problem. I have no idea what you can do. talk to your vet?
 I had a cat who bit me and a feral cat person suggested I hiss at him every time he did it. It stopped right away. Try hissing when she gets near the spot on the counter. All I can come up with.

May I present our kitten {well, she's a 'teen-ager' now} Nergal {not to be confused with 'nargle' - lol}-

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b155/tigereatsfire/Photo2.jpg)


I snapped this pic this morning with the built-in webcam while she was 'exploring' our new laptop. {Sorry she looks a little washed out - she's a much more deep ginger - I just haven't figured out the flash on the webcam yet!}


She found us at the beginning of October - we were having dinner with my Father-in-law, and as we were leaving the restaurant my FIL mentioned that he thought he heard a cat. Well, the closer we got to our van, the louder the meowing got, and there was this tiny, orange, skinny, adorable little baby meowing her head off directly under the rear bumper of our van! I sat down in the parking lot and she came right over to me and got in my lap - meowing the whole time - and head-butted my hand for more petting!

We brought her home with us that night. She was so skinny and malnourished that she meowed the whole time she was eating. We were careful not to leave too much food or water down at first as we were afraid she might over-do it and make herself sick. I only had to show her the litter box once, but she did meow for me to come with her for the first day or so, as if to ask if it was really ok, or maybe she just wanted 'Mom' nearby  :)

I checked lost pets ads wherever I could find them, and didn't see any matching her description, but since she was so tiny, and in an area that is mostly business and industrial, I'm pretty sure she was dumped.


She's such a happy and loving cat, and my husband and I have completely fallen in love with her... and she's been snuggling and getting into things and just generally developing into a very wonderful, smart, beautiful young cat ever since she found us.

I know I've mentioned my darling boy Nugget before, and his numerous health woes....most recently the tumor on his leg that we first noticed in September.  Anyway, barring a miracle, it looks like we're putting him down on Wednesday.  He's been licking and biting at the tumor so badly that it started to bleed and despite our attempts to keep it bandaged, it's gotten infected.  So really we're waiting on whatever the vet might say tomorrow morning, but it's not looking too good.  Mom is worried that it's going to turn gangrenous in the next 24 hours.  I can't get home to see him until Wednesday so I begged her not to put him down until I got there to be with him.

I will let everyone know what happens....

The vet says he has about a week before the infection kills him naturally.  He wrapped up the trouble spot and gave him antibiotics and painkillers so that he can at last hold out comfortably for another few days and I don't have to rush home tomorrow afternoon (and ruin the rest of my first week of classes)....so we'll probably be putting him down this weekend.

Last month I posted that I was having a problem with my cat peeing on my counter.  I hope I don't jinx anything, but the offending behavior seems to have stopped.  I came up with the idea of sprinkling cat nip on the counter, hoping to turn the area into a "happy spot" for her, and it seems to have worked.  She loves the catnip and goes nuts over it, and hasn't done anything bad since I started sprinkling it there.I 've had to deal with cat nip all over the counter, but I'll take that over the other.   Now I just have to try taking the catnip away and see what happens....

Better hope the police never visit your place when you've got the nip spread out all over the counter!  That stuff looks too much like marijuana, haha.

On the Nugget front, we are still playing the waiting game.  He's got painkillers to last him through Saturday, but I don't know how it'll be when they run out.  I haven't seen him yet but my parents say that each day he does all right, but every day after that he gets progressively less active.  Yesterday he was coming up and down the stairs by himself but hasn't at all today, so...we'll see how this weekend goes.  Thanks all for the support.

Just talked to my mom on the phone and they're at the vet with Nugget, so he's going to be crossing the rainbow bridge here very shortly, if he hasn't already.  We were going to do it tomorrow when I was home, but I guess as of this morning he was pretty critical.  Thankfully the vet is going to let us take him home with us so we can at least bury him in our own backyard, which I feel much more peaceful about.  At least I'll know he's back with the earth and with me in spirit.  Is there a Summerland for cats?  Heh.  I wish I was there with him, but...I'm not.  I'm surprisingly still okay, for now anyway.  It hasn't quite hit me yet.  Having a week to prepare for it helped.  We'll see how long it lasts though.

How can you doubt that there is a special place for our pets that go on ahead of us to wait? Call it Heaven, or Summerland it doesnt matter what name you call it, but there they wait on soft pillows and roll joyfully in fields of catnip and wonder how long it will take for us to join them. Their love leaves little pawprints behind them to guild our way.

It's a nice feeling, knowing he's there waiting for me.  Being a cat again.  It's been a weird few days.  It took about 2 days for it to really hit, I was kind of on a delayed-reaction autopilot till then.  Now it comes and goes.  I'm still trying to get over the fact that he can't come and make me feel better like he always did.  *sigh*  I do miss him!

I bring you happy news, Your Majesty, my ragamuffin, Rogue, gave birth to 2 furbabies just minutes ago. My mom is playing midwife because I would cringe and hurt every time she would merowl out. The daddy is a stray that found us back in Sept. He's as far as we know, full Siamese, more whitish gray, that we named Chewie, because of his meow.
I don't know if 2 is all she'll have, we don't know if she's done yet. All I hear is little peeping meows. Thus far, they look like her. She's a pretty strawberry light blond with the fluffiest tail.
More to come later.... :D

 Happy news!
Title: Re: Royal Felines
Post by: Cloverpogue on January 28, 2009, 01:22:30 PM
She finally had 4 total. 2 are a light blonde, almost white right now. Number 3 is a foxy color with little stripes, he was nursing as soon as he got out, and number 4 is almost white with a hint of light gray on his back like daddy Chewie. I know they will look so different in a few days. They are already fattening up healthy. Rogue is so sweet and such a good mommy. Sparrow, my other little kitty is jealous because she's not the baby anymore, and Willow is taking it in strides. Daddy Chewie doesn't know just what to make of all of it just yet. *lol* As soon as I can, I will post pictures. They are so beautiful and my mom is proud because Rogue picked her to help her deliver them. She meowed at mom, got her on the couch with her and started loving on her. Mom put her in the basket and helped her out. We finally got in bed around 2:30 this morning, to make sure they were going to be allright. It's a good thing we had a snow day today to sleep in. ;D

Raise your hand if you have a cat who falls off things when they fall asleep.  :D  My cats have been doing this quite a bit lately after nodding off on the back of a recliner, dragging the afghan off the chair as well as they realize what's happening and try to rescue themselves. They never seem to get hurt, and of course, never stop nodding off on this favorite perch.

These are Bengals, your highness :) Smartest cats I ever seen.. We walk them on a leash outside, Zelda took a bath with me once and I can easily recognize by the tone of their voice what they need when they meow.. Also they recognize certain words that I say.. When I say " treat" Zelda gets all excited , starts talking to me and rubs on my legs.. And when I say " outside" , she meows loudly and runs to the door.. Jasmine is still a dummy though  and thats OK because she is absolutely adorkable.

Wishing you a fuzzy weekend,

Whatever Oreo is he is the smartest(assed) cat I know!

He has FINALLY totally forgiven be for leaving him off at that PLACE! He has told me all about how HORRID it was and shows me the shaved area as a reminder he does not plan to go back! It cracks me up! Angus has been snuggly beyond belief! He seems to think if he snuggles us that the horrid place will not take him! Makes you feel sad and all powerful!<G> I can't imagine life without my Puds! Oreo was so glad to be home with his dog. They played and ran and rolled about! King has been hugging and cuddling his kittens. I have such a good group! We seem to have acquired a stray tabby tom. We saw him on the porch this AM. I am going to try to catch him and haul him off to be FIXED! I do not need him marking the porch daily!YUGGGG! Cat

Title: Re: Royal Felines
Post by: Yennefer on February 23, 2009, 04:48:03 PM
Zoe,

we got our second kitten when our other kitty was 2 years old. We separated the little kitty in our big bathroom at first- smaller space and making lights dim suppose  to make him less scared. Of course, new kitty recieved his own sleepy bed, dishes, toys etc.

We let little one be on his own for about a half of a day, offered some food and water but did not let cats see one another. Each cat recieved a new blankie to sleep on...

On next day , we switched blankies so kitties can sniff on one another's scent. We also sparayed Feliway ( which contains natural cat pheromones) everywhere in the apartment. Of course, cats knew about another but all they could do is to hiss at a closed door.

A bit later on, we let them see one another. Hubby was holding one while I was holding another.. Older kitty was hissing of course.Throuhgout the day each of us would go hug with little kitty  to get her scent on our clothes and then we would go to hug the big one.

End of day 2- day 3. We removed little one from the  bathroom and let the big one in to sniff in the bathroom, to eat from her dish and so on.. The main idea was to get scents mixed.

After that, probably on  a day 4 or so , we let them be in the same room. Supervised. Oh my, hissing was out of control . We were very patient though. Little by little they got to know each other, now they share litter boxes ( we had 2 boxes , one for each kitty) and they share dishes now too, they sleep together and clean one another so I would say our method worked.

Main thing is, do not force them to like each other and spend time  and play with one another. It will be probably few months before  they are OK with one another.

I hope this helps

Hugs,

yenn

Here are my two Royal Felines.  They very much run the show here.   

Wednesday is our big, chubby 4 year old.  We found her when she was a kitten outside in the rain and cold in the middle of February and fell in love with her instantly.  She is now our resident multiple personality cat - she'll be in your lap, enjoying the pets your giving her and then suddenly nibble your arm and jump off your lap.  One minute she loves the kitten, the next she's hissing.  So we tease her about her mood swings lol.  She is definitely the queen around here. 

(http://i459.photobucket.com/albums/qq314/seryn93/l_5cc76dae173545bfb20aa44220d2fc36.jpg)

Jasper is 4 months old.  My cousin found him under the tire of a truck, about to be run over.  She dove under the truck, screaming at the driver to stop, and grabbed him up.  She already has 3 dogs, one more than military housing will allow lol  so she couldn't keep him.  We decided to take him and are so glad we did.  Jasper is our little love bug.  He loves everyone he meets, he purrs if you look at him, and he is always ready to be picked up or to sit in your lap or right next to your leg.  He has the sweetest disposition of any cat I've ever known.

Post by: Zoë on February 23, 2009, 10:21:46 PM
Yenn,

We are working them into being around each other, and always supervised.  They are avoiding each other for the moment but they sleep next to each other in individual kennels.  Every time we have introduced them to each other it has been at a distance and always someone holding each, with petting and all that.  There is lots of hissing on Sandia's part, Simon seems pretty calm but is not interested in approaching her yet.  Sandia is 8 years old but she has never lived without another cat; she was introduced to the late Nugget when she was about 8 weeks old after being taken straight from her family.  So I think after time goes by she will get used to him.  It was the same with Nugget when we introduced her.  He avoided her at first, then tolerated her, and within a little while they were inseparable.  It just takes time, cats do things on their own agenda.

Thanks for the tips though, I'll be sure to relay that to the 'rents if the trouble continues.

Zoe,

I also recommend these products if kitties need some calming.

First , is Feliway. I would not buy a plugin as it didnt seem to work  well but spray it on your clothes and furniture in  the area where kitties meet to set off to a more neutral scent.

http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2755196

Second one  that I heard gives excellent results is Bach's flower remedies. Unfortunately , they dont sell it in generic pet stores so if you decide to try it out , I would have to order online:

http://www.onlynaturalpet.com/products/Bach-Rescue-Remedy/238000.aspx


Both products are natural ( cat's pheromones in Feliway and flower essences in the other one).

I hope your kitties fall in love with one another :)

Hugs,

Yenn

PS: Catnip never had calming effect on either of my cats hehe. Older one hates it, she jumps and runs away from anything with it and younger one doesnt care for it even a little bit.
Title: Re: Royal Felines
Post by: Zoë on February 24, 2009, 11:40:21 AM
Sandia (the older cat) is a total niphead.  She loves it.  Simon doesn't seem to have much interest in it thus far though.  He might warm up to it.

We took him to the vet for his first checkup yesterday and the vet says he is probably older than we thought, probably about 6.  Which is crazy because he's in amazing shape for a cat that age.  We seriously put him at only 3.  But he's apparently missing most of his top teeth, but we can't tell if they were broken off or just never grew in, without X-rays.  He seems to eat just fine without them though, we didn't even notice.

 Back from Scarby and my Tachi is not doing well at all. See News from Meow Manor. Prayers needed. For I fear a sad decision must be made soon- unless he perks up.

Aww, Queen Bonnie!  I'm sorry to hear your Tachi isn't doing well.  D=  Healing thoughts and prayers on their way, for sure!

I don't believe I've posted my own Royal Feline here yet.  =D  We're separated at the moment, as I can't have him where I am right now, but as soon as I'm able, he'll be right back to sleeping in the little crook behind my knees, I'm sure.

May I introduce Mr. Crucio Jack Sparrow Stinky Pumpkinpieface. 
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v206/Jinxster/Dearests/photo6.jpg)
He was just a kitten in that picture, the day I brought him home.  He'd picked me out, you see.  My friends and I were at a street festival, and a kind lady was walking around pulling a red wagon with a cage full of kittens.  Crucio there just kept -launching- himself at my side of the cage every time I came near.  So, I just -had- to take him home with me.

He enjoys playing in the drapery:
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v206/Jinxster/Dearests/DCFC0024.jpg)

and curling up on his mum's lap in her nice quilt while she reads:
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v206/Jinxster/Dearests/DCFC0033.jpg)

He really has the loveliest markings, doesn't he?  I adore him, he's more spoiled than any child could ever be.  A very lovey cat, he demands his daily pets and cuddles, and regally tolerates the way I bestow him with a million kisses on his fuzzy little head.  <3

 AWWW! What a cutie Jinx! Long name for such a small cat! LOL! I love it! the best feline friends are the ones that pick YOU out! Our furry friends are very dear!
 Tachi has bounced back with lots of TLC! He is eating a lot and his insulin dose has been increased. The Vet Tech who gives him his shots when I board him will care for him here in Meow Manor while I go to Scarby this weekend. Less stress on Tachi! Glad I could work something out! I am spoiling him rotten- but he is worth it! So happy he is better! The vet had not seen him for 2 weeks and was amazed at his recovery! Doing the happy dance!

Crucio does have quite a long name.  I trained horses for several years, and seem to have come out of it with a knack for giving animals exceedingly long names!  Especially, it seems, cats, as I've named three others in the same manner for friends.  ^.^

Simon has been adapting very well to the household.  He practically runs the place now.  He and Sandia get along, though they're not quite the cuddle monsters that she and Nugget used to be.

So sorry to hear about your kitty Purple Dragon!!  I lost a kitty last year too and I still think of him often.  But I have another kitty to hold while I'm thinking of him which makes it alot easier!!!  Don't try to think about the lost kitty unless you're able to have another in your lap to hold and cry into if needed... that's my advise.

 I have found that is so. I have lost a lot of special kitties- but another furry friend helps with the loss and pain.
 I could never be without a cat to love. Right now I have Chingy who is pushing 20 years old and Tachi who is fighting Thyroid disease and diabetes.
 Luckily Yoshi my Seal Point is young- but he will be lonely when the time comes. I plan to go to Siamese Rescue!

Last Monday when I was unloading the car, this hungry lady greeted me.
(http://c1.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/86/l_5dcb294475a740148fb295621b81a714.jpg)

It took a few minutes, but I finally convinced her to come in and take sanctuary in the EgypKITS room (and those two giving me looks all the way from "He's replacing us!" to "Look, I'm trying to plan dinner; will there be any other guests?"

I supplied food, water, litter, a place to stay for the night. She seemed happy.
(http://c2.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/110/l_29a1983290a74352b0ce68fd34f3ce3d.jpg)
I called her Nimr, Arabian for Tiger, and told her stories of the great huntress she was named after. Of how Nimr charmed her way into our lives, went from being an alley cat in Dhahran to being a cat who braved the fires and stole steaks bigger than her off of grills in Texas.

Of course, any arrangement in my humble keep must meet the approval of the EgypKITS, so I got on the phone with a coworker who has a small farm and 12 cats. He agreed to take Nimr.
(http://c2.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/106/l_435489fcc4a64a3c96874a148023a3d5.jpg)

In the following days, he told me of how Nimr was accepted into his house withing 15 minutes of arrival. Of how the cat previously there on its deathbed moved on two hours after her arrival, as if it was, "Good. My relief has arrived. I can move on to my next life."

I can only wonder for the pushover I am, will the word get out, will other kittens walk up to me?

Post by: dragonslayer808 on June 02, 2009, 08:53:05 PM
Her name is Psycho,  my wife and daughter rescued her from where she was dumped off in a parking lot.  They saw a car dump 3 kittens (barely weened) and drive off.  We took them in and found homes for the other 2.  This one kitten really took to me, so we decided to keep it.  She would jump into the air and swat at absolutly nothing, so we started calling her psycho kitty, and the name just stuck.

The best pets we have ever had have been rescued in similar situations.  Some people and some animals are just destined to be together.  We have never gone out looking for pets, they just seem to find us.

Her disposition is just that, serene, she doesn't get excited about anything.  That is unless you leave the door open and she inches outside, then thinks you are going to close the door.  She will run over you to get back inside.

Well, here I am again. I was content with the one cat I had (which, to my dismay, adopted my husband instead of me). Phantom and I don't really talk much, but we tolerate each other. He makes it a point to only really acknowledge my existence when he wants to lay on me late at night. So, I get back from Scarby last weekend or so, and my son starts telling me about these kitties. My mother, who has deviously planned to make me fall in love with the little beasts, spins a tale of woe about these kittens that were rescued from the brink of death out of my mother-in-law's attic. While MIL was in Florida, a momma cat moved in and had her babies, then left. They sent my 12 year old niece in after them, and they were quite happy to be rescued. Only one problem- Ace's family is allergic to kittehs, and his father HATES animals.

So, with the look of "please please please mom" on my 6 year old son's face, I reluctantly brought the matter to Ace. He's the end all when it comes to bringing in strays (be it furry friends or hoomin friends). Ace says, "If you'd like to keep them here until they find a home, you're more than welcome to. And if you fall in love with one of them, keep them."

So now, we are bogged down with Phantom (who hid under the bed for 3 days) and 3 kittehs- Jade, Shadow (who was originally named by my son and MIL "Nightmare"), and Riker, named for Lieutennant Commander William Riker from Star Trek because he's the only boy and my son called him Number One. Seemed fitting.

I think we have a home for dearest Riker already. Jade and Shadow will be staying with us.

I'm now the crazy cat lady on my block. They sleep on my shoulders....

Things here and there.

They are replacing the toilets in my apartment complex, so I got my place ready so they can move in and out. Among the things I had to move was bike rack, a three piece metal sculpture thing with arms. I took it apart and in the half moon circular base I found ................ 7 kitten play balls, the kind with the bell in them, that had been batted in and "lost" from times before.

With things moved around so there is a clear walk way, that means the bottom of the sofa is exposed. "LOOK! A NEW TOY TO TEST OUR CLAWS ON!" .....which resulted in a few "NYETS!" from me and pulling a cat throw lower to give the sofa more protection.

Took the oppurtunity to vacuum some today, warned the Egypkits, and when I turned it on, Osiris was wide eyed and ran into the kitchen, the only path, but that was too close, not enough room. So I turned off the beast for a moment and he took off the other way, to disappear on the window sill behind the bookcase. His sister, Isis, was slightly more calm about it for she was still in sight....though not that far from the window sill as well.

Ruffles, Mom's cat, gets out for an hour or so every day or so when I go to check on Mom's house (others check on her daily, feed her, check the litter). She loves the attention, will tangle herself all around one's feet to the point of tripping and show her apprectiation with .............. love bites. Fortunally, she has a small mouth so she can't really do much damage, but it does get one's attention, especially when she goes for the shins.

Nimr paid that life FIXING visit to the vet today but came home safe and sound this evening, my co worker reported.

I was astounded a mouse could exist with- at the time I had 8 cats!  He let me look where the stove was pulled out and there must have been 30 or 40 catnip mice under the stove! Mouse Problem!!! LOL!

Post by: PrincessSara on September 02, 2009, 08:08:44 AM
My cat went missing last Friday.  I'd searched the whole house for him but I couldn't find him.  My mom was worried that he'd developed another urinary tract blockage - he had one 5 years ago and we've had him on special food since to keep it from happening again.  But 7 months ago he developed diabetes and the vets told us to switch him to diabetic food; they said if he hadn't had a blockage in 5 years he would be fine without the special food.

Only, last night I found him dead in the basement.

He was only 11 years old.  I can't believe he's gone, I expected to have years left with him.  I can't believe I'll never hear his little baby "I'm hungry" whine again, or see him lift his little paw when he wants something, or snuggle with him on the couch, or have him lick my hands, or see him rolling around on the floor and purring because he's just so happy with his life.  My boy, my baby boy...

I am so mad at those vets.  I'm never taking any of my cats to them again.  This is just the last straw in a series of things I'm upset about with them: they didn't know Thutmose had a heart murmur, they physically restrained Sierra when they euthanized her, they see nothing amiss with my 21 pound cat or my 4 pound cat, they made us wait almost two hours for an emergency appointment when a large abscess on Martini's neck burst.  I just can't trust them anymore.

Ah PrincessSara, I'm so very sorry to hear about your kitty!!  I know how hard it is to loose a kitty.  I lost my most loved cat of all time, Spanky, about a year ago.  He was 14 and died of diabetes after having it for about 5 yrs.  Keeping a diabetic cat regulated is a challenging dance and does really require a competent vet!  You kitty could very easily have slipped into a diabetic coma and died from an insulin overdose if you weren't regulating him correctly.  Or he could have died from weight loss and under medicated insulin doses for an extended time...  11 yrs for a diabetic cat isn't that bad actually, though i personally thought 14 was way too short myself!!!

 Hugs Princess Sara. I am so sorry for your loss. Very sad. You do need better vets. My Tachi- the King of Siam and lover cat of my life is diabetic and has thyroid disease. 2 shots and 2 pills twice a day every day for the rest of his life. It make going to faire complicated and expensive- but I love this cat so much. He is 16 and so far doing OK. My vets in Elgin are top notch. As long as he does Ok- happy to give him the care he needs. He is my familiar. I have never been so close to a cat.

Knowing that we'll be heading to TRF for All Hallow's weekend, we were concerned that Prussia would be lonely. Though someone would be coming to check on him twice a day, that still left 22 hours with no company. We decided that it was time for a second furbaby here at the Shadow's Hold, so we started looking. After our experience finding Prussia so easily, we didn't expect difficulty. Guess again.

We had decided that we wanted another male, either one of Prussia's brothers or a young kitten. Our friend who had fostered Prussia still had several of his siblings but had gotten really attached to them so that was a no-go. They had a young kitten and an older cat that they were looking to re-home but both were female.

We went to several rescue facilities and found a little kitten (Williams litter) that called out to both the Ranger and I. First they wanted us to see a litter of kittens that had been raised at a foster home. We checked them out but none of the kittens took to us.

They finally notified us Tuesday that we were approved to bring home the Williams kitten. I filled out the paperwork Wednesday, took him by the vet for FLuek and FIV tests (both negative), and got ready to bring him home. They let us know that he had a slight respiratory infection and needed 10 days worth of drops in his eye for that.

Anyway, a much too long story just to tell you that Shade has come home to the Shadow's Hold and has officially decided that the Ranger belongs to him. Prussia still isn't sure he's not pissed at us but he's not been able to stay mad at the baby. He's been seen giving the little monster a bath and letting him steal the sparkle ball that they love to play with.

I know (hope) we're doing the right thing, I guess I just need some reassurance..Another of our feline friends is in a bad way.  She's been getting ever skinnier in recent months and even though we knew something was really wrong, we decided a while ago to just let nature take its course.  Yesterday we found "Brat Cat" huddled up in the basement, listless, weak and barely able to stand. She's not eating, we can barely get her to drink by putting a water bowl under her nose, and she was wet from soiling herself.  Later today when my husband gets home, he's taking her to the vet to have her put down.  I feel guilty for not wanting to run tests to see if she can be healed but we don't have what would probably cost hundreds of dollars right now, (and as far as I know, most vets need cash at time of service.) I feel terrible putting a price tag on our pets life, I love her but I don't see any other option. I don't see any point in prolonging her suffering.

I am sorry for your furry friend. I was in the same situation several years ago. I also didn't want to do what had to be done. I keep remembering   him when he was healthy,playful and loving. I didn't want him to spend his remaining time in pain and me wondering when his time would come. I sometimes think that our furry friends are on loan to us . They bring us such happiness and love us unconditionally. I can't remember when I haven't had my furry friends and what it was like.

I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Ellie

 Lady Neysa. I have been in similar situations- many times- sadly. You do what you must. Throwing lots of money at a very sick cat often does not help. Each is different. HUGS.
 I will hate it when I have to make a decision about Tachi or Chingy.
 On the other hand- I got adopted again. read News from Meow Manor!

A loss in our house hold today. Our lovely little fur-less baby, Singe, a Sphynx cat, came down with phenmonia and died this evening at 6:40. He fought valiantly all day, but lost his fight when his little heart gave out. The vet was wonderful and did his best to help Singe.
But our household is silent in sorrow tonight. His charm and sweetness will be missed.

It's so hard to loose a beloved pet. I'm sorry for your loss too. I hope another little kitty finds his way into your hearts soon.

Neysa, don't feel guilty. Sometimes the best thing you can do for one you love is to let them pass in their own way while giving them the comfort they need to do so. I had a rescue dog some years back who became ill. We did all the tests and gave him medicine and so forth but it only slowed the progress of the illness. In the end we made the decision to just let him go. I think he was ready. Sometimes that's they best way to show your love. Hugs for you.

This is Maya.

She was a Stray that hung around our house but I got her to approach me one day during Christmas about 2 years back, and she has come to be a Very Loving and Affectionate Outdoor Cat.
We had her Spayed, and we Feed her Just as we would with an indoor cat, if not a little less, Because i figured she hunts outdoors as well.

She has Tortoiseshell coloring, But I dont really know What breed of cat she is made up of.

I have been in the position of having a cat to the vet knowing he was most likely not going to make it only to have the vet run up 400 bucks worth of bill in several hours then call to tell us he died anyway....all this after telling us he had a really good chance with treatment... I now go with my gut..if they are really bad and/or old I treat them at home and do what I can to ease them on their journey...or have a vet put them out if there is one I can trust.... We have a great horse vet who also helps us with our many many other beasts... I can trust him more than anyone I have ever known!!! Trust is a great thing when a dear pet has a problem.... sad to hear of so many losses here!!!! Blessings to you all! Cat

 Maya is adorable!  What a pretty cat!
 I know all about Vet bills and losing a cat I have just spent money I did not have. I do the same thing, Cat. Hard to know what is right.
 My Tachi is down with another sinus infection- as well as diabetes and thyroid disease- but he is doing OK. Neri is growing and eating a lot- for a wee kitten!
 She is doing much better.
 I give so much medication to cats- I almost feel like a vet!

Post by: Tremayne on July 02, 2010, 09:51:35 PM
My summer has been full of cats and gardening, so my thoughts naturally turn to you on occasion, Queen Bonnie. I've been thinking lately that cats particularly love a gardener--at least outdoor cats do. Either it's because we're outside to socialize with them or it's because we create a jungle for them to stalk through and pounce from. And, ahem, soft spots for them to do their business, which is how I met my first outdoor cat this spring. I was gardening in the evening and turned around to see a black kitten of about 5 mos making a deposit in the middle of my mulch.

Shortly after I began feeding this skinny, feral-but-friendly specimen, two other boney cats came out of the woods: an adult male gray who I thought at one time had belonged to neighbors but clearly wasn't being fed and a dilute tortoiseshell about the same age as the black. The black became "Bibs" shortly after our initial meeting because of a white bib where her through meets her chest. The torti is slowly becoming "Smudge" because her colors are so undefined and the gray I'm still considering. She is scared of people, though she seems to have a gentle nature (as opposed to Bibs who's an affectionate but a terror).

I really didn't need extra cats in my life, with a limited income and 2 cats indoors already, but I wanted to ensure that 3 cats didn't become 9 and then 20, so I've slowly been working on a neutering campaign. I caught the scaredy cat in a live trap and put her on a spare office/bedroom. I then had to recapture her (a harrowing experience for both of us) to take her to the vet for spaying. She is still in the spare room and I'm hoping to introduce her to the rest of the house this weekend. I'm hoping she's tamable and can remain indoors. The gray, who I have yet to name, got an upper respiratory bug and I've only just now gotten him to the vet for some antibiotics. He's a friendly and gentle guy so trauma to him but not to those of us who had to handle him. He's got an appointment to be neutered.

I had almost everyone's sexes mixed up to begin with. I was so hoping that Bibs was a male that I ignored a rather obvious pregnancy until right before she had kittens. I'd thought the gray was a female and these other two were her kittens, until he lifted his tail--and then I knew I was in real trouble, because it meant here were two females and a male ready to impregnate them ad infinitum. Bib's is just now past her kittens, none of which I ever saw and clearly haven't survived, so she's probably next to the vet and I dread seeing her response to being crated.

But through all the trials, it's been nice having the company of cats when I'm out gardening. I prefer not to let my two indoor cats outdoors (except in a fenced area) because of various risks. And since there's no fence, I can't let my dogs out front. The gray cat was, in fact, my neighbors and she came over one day looking for him saying how distressed she was that he'd disappeared. I showed her what I was feeding and suggested she feed him. Cats may like gardens but they like being fed even more. As far as I can tell, she's done nothing for this cat she supposedly loves. He now rarely leaves my yard and oddly seems to have considered the trip to the vet this morning something of a bonding experience. He disappeared for the afternoon but was never far away this eveing when I went out for some planting and mulching. He was in quite high spirits and did some zipping around despite his beleagured lungs.

And there ends my kitty saga for now. I rarely get on here nowadays but had a some time this evening. Eventually I'll hope to pop back in (probably around xmas) to tell you that everything turned out great: Smudge a petable house cat and everyone unbreedable.

I wish I could have outdoor cats...but for some reason the farm is tough on outdoor cats. I think the neighbors put out poison for the Wildcats and coyotes because my outdoor cats I moved up here all showed up poisoned and died! So I swore off outdoor kitties! And such a lovely cat garden I have!

 Lovely to hear you have been adopted Tremayne! HUGS! Those are the best Kitties. Batman is my only indoor/ outdoor kitty and he loves the garden and guards the yard- but a pack of wild dogs scared him so he does not stay out much anymore. The rest are indoor kitties. They do tend to last longer that way.

It is so nice to read the loving people/loving kitties stories here - ya'll make me feel all warm & gooey inside.

It is with a great deal of sadness that I announce that I had to euthanize my Spooky Cat yesterday.  Old age catches up to all of us and it became clear on Sunday that she was not going to "go gentle into that good night."   On Sunday evening her back leg quit without notice and was causing her pain, so that was the deciding vote right there.  She led her life on her own terms.

She was Vindictive and beyond help and I could not handle a dog that would get mad about something I did not even know I had done and poop/pee on the bed,the furniture,clean laundry basket...etc etc... I hope she found a home that she could be happy...My mom tried(and she can handle nearly any dog) then I tried then I had 2 other homes try...Finally everyone gave up!  Some animals are not PETS!

Earlier this summer I shared a long-winded descriptions of my kitty interventions this summer. I'm happy to report that all but one of the kitties have found a good home--all at the same place. A gentleman starting a feed store in a shop behind his house wanted 3-4 spayed/neutered cats to reduce the rodent population. I supplied him with the neutered gray male and the black momma cat (now spayed) and he agreed to take her kitten and spay it later. Everyone seems happy there. I've got one holdout who refuses to be caught in the live trap available to me. I'm out of trapping ingenuity for the moment, so she'll be my outside cat until I can get my hands on her (can't imagine when that will be) or I find a more suitable (larger) live trap. But there's a barn full of hidey holes waiting for her whenever she allows herself to be caught and her best buddy (the gray male) waiting for her. I think if I could explain that to her, she'd come along peacefully, but alas, my kitty communication skills are fairly primitive.

Last night, I was about to bike to work (because Uncia's in the body shop) when Isis has ducked around the corner in the direction of the den. Well, I can't find her and I have to get to work. Well, I know one thing that will make her appear.................

Humbug.

Got a call from a neighbor today. "Six," the friendly black tomcat who has run the neighborhood with a velvet paw for as long as we can remember died yesterday. His heart apparently gave out finally.  :( He lived 3 doors down from us, but would come by and "help" me pack the van for trips to fairs and other events, occasionally snuck in our house with people during parties. Once he narrowly avoided going to Chicago with us.

He was on his third household in the neighborhood. His original owners are said to have named him Six because he was their sixth cat in the house. When they moved he stayed behind and adopted someone else. He often came by in the morning for second breakfast or a late afternoon snack and probably would have moved in with us if his latest housemate had moved.

I have a question about cats, but first, some history. We used to keep cats, at one point hitting a baker's dozen, then I developed an allergy. I really bums me out, because I love cats. I can handle them a little, but have to be very careful, or I will suffer for hours!

We moved to a different community, and the back yard is wooded. We ended up with a feral tomcat trying to sneak dog food off the deck. Eventually, the cat adopted us. That was over ten years ago. We've never tried to claim him—I don't think he would permit it at all. He waits at the deck door for food and he'll allow Nim and I to pet him, but I've never seen anyone else near him.

Last week, Tigger, for all practical purposes, brought home a kitten! The kitten is as feral as he was when he first showed up, but Tigger allows her to eat out of his bowl on the deck, and I've even seen him chase other cats away from her.  Isn't this pretty unusual behaviour for a tomcat?

 I had a tom cat that invited a few special kittens to share his food dish. I got lots of cats that way. I thought it was unusual at the time- but Fuzzball was a very different cat. Good You have a cat who shares, Merlin!

It is with deep sadness that I must report the passing of one of my beloved kitties.  "PRINCESS DIANA STORMBRINGER", my beloved pure bred Persian is now awaiting my arrival at the Rainbow Bridge. She crossed over the Friday before Christmas. I raised her from an 8 week old kitten, given to me as a birthday present back in June of 1996. She was a wonderful companion and the most loving cat. Whenever a new animal, cat or dog or whatever, was brought into the home, she became "momma" to that animal and would nurture them and teach them. Rest in Peace my little Princess, know that daddy loves you and misses you greatly.

Our dear sweet kitty Girlz was diagnosed with CRF a little over a year ago and is going downhill quickly these last few weeks.

I am so worried about her.. She has stopped eating for the most part about two weeks ago and we can only coax about a tablespoon of canned food in her a day, sometimes a few bites of tuna.. She is still drinking water, and using her litterbox, however I suspect she may be constipated, as I haven't seen a bowel movement since Monday.. She's losing weight fast..

Has anyone tried using canned pumpkin to get their kitties functions functioning again?

Our last vet visit (in February) they suggested Sub-Q fluids which we declined as she is nearly 17 and skittish and would not deal well with the stress this brings along with it, and we know CRF is not curable and do not want to make what little time we have left miserable for her (and us)..

She still purrs and gives loves, and snuggles with us all night..

If anyone has any suggestions on the pumpkin or something else to get her bowels moving or anything we can do to coax her to eat. She is a finicky little thing.. Force feeding her with a syringe is not really an option..

Hugs, and please keep my baby girl in your thoughts..

Muffin, I know how hard this is to go through, but you also have to consider your beloved pet. It may be time to let go. I had to make the decision years ago with my Husky. She had continued to collapse and I would have to carry her in from the yard.  I made the decision to put her down, and that day, she actually walked into to vet under her own power. I held her as she crossed the rainbow bridge. Nim held her in her lap on the ride home, and I buried her in the back yard.  It was the hardest thing I'd had to do in my life, but I knew that I had done the right thing for my friend of 15 years.  It's always made me sad, but I have never regretted the decision. However, you must do what you feel in your heart.

I don't have any personal experience with cats, Muffin, but I do know pumpkin is often prescribed for severe digestive issues. Easy on the digestive system, lots of fiber and it will help hydrate your kitty. I believe it will also help clear excessive nitrogen . A good thing with urinary/kidney issues.

There are lots of sites on the net that talk about pumpkin for cats. From what I've read, buy plain canned or cook fresh. No salt or additives. One tablespoon or so a day, though a finicy cat may refuse this. Try another brand. To preserve the pumpkin, fill an ice cube tray and take out what's needed each day.

Low sodium broth added to his food and warmed might help his appetite ss well. In reading a bit I see onions are toxic to cats( didn't know that) so avoid a. broth with onions.

I'll keep you and your kitty in my thoughts, Muffin. I know how hard it is to have a sick friend. I hope his remaining days are peaceful, and happy ones.

Title: Re: Royal Felines
Post by: Muffin on March 19, 2012, 11:30:29 AM
We tried the pumpkin which of course she didn't like, but I put it on her nose so she had to lick at least some of it off, she was not happy with the Mama over that, but this morning we had a poopie! Hooray!!!!  ;D (sorry, gross I know...)

So, hopefully she will keep it up and get back on schedule! Otherwise I have been told I can give her Myralax, we'll see how she does the next couple of days..

Thanks for keeping my girl in your thoughts!

Run free my little shrimpy girl. The tumor that kept your head cocked sideways & caused your wobbly gait is no more. Frolic across the Rainbow Bridge with all the kitties that I know were waiting for your arrival.


Mollie was a munchkin, the last of her line.  She was about 4 or 5 when I met & fell in love with her back in late 2007.  She had a tumor in her left ear that caused her deafness, wobbly gait, and cocked head, but it didn't stop her from climbing wherever her claws could gain purchase and/or her legs could propel her. A few days ago, I noticed that she was sleeping UNDER the bed instead of ON it, and her gait had gotten a bit more drunkenly, but since she was eating and making her usual racket, I didn't worry too much about it. The impending weather system had MY ears & sinuses going crazy, and in the almost 3 years I've had her, I discovered that big changes in the barometer virtually always led to additional fluid in that ear and an increased wobble to her walk.  Last night everything seemed fine. I cleaned out her ear and set her on the bed with me for some mama time, and she was still on the bed when I fell asleep.  When I awoke, I wasn't surprised that she wasn't there, because she often moves in the night.  At lunchtime, I found her under the bed looking like she didn't feel well at all. I pulled her out and she was absolutely limp, breathing, but a bit laboriously.  I called the friend from whom I adopted her, and we decided that it might be time. I took her to the vet, who examined her ears and it seems that the tumor has gotten into her inner ear, which would make her even more wobbly, and if it grew at all in another direction, it would get into her brain (this is a possibility that we've always known about). Antibiotics *might* help, but they might not.
She had a pampered life, at least from about 2004 on, and lasted longer than I think the initial vet thought she might.   2 Rainbow Bridge trips in 8 months, plus the loss of another cat that I loved, (though was not responsible for) through the negligence of another is plenty for me now for awhile I think.

Girlz June 8, 1995 - March 23, 2012


Yesterday was one of the most difficult days I have ever had. We had to help my sweet baby girl to cross the rainbow bridge. I was able to spend the whole day with her, giving her love and kisses. We knew it was time, and somehow I think she did too. She took a very quick and drastic turn beginning on Wednesday night and by Friday morning she could no longer stand up under her own power. She had been sleeping under the bed all week which is not like her, but on Thursday she somehow made it up her kitty ramp onto the bed and slept next to us. We have no idea how she did this, by Thursday night her hind end was no longer cooperating with her, and she had become so weak. In my heart I have to believe this was her way of saying goodbye. My heart is broken, but I know in time the hurt will heal, and this was the right thing to do for her because I love her so much..

My sweet sweet girl, now you will no longer feel any pain, and can run and play. Grandpa will take good care of you. I will miss you everyday my little sweet face, until I see you again know that Mama loves you.

another of mine has apparently found her spunk. She's about 16 months old, hairless, and visually impaired. Generally, she sleeps between the topsheet and my bedspread/quilt at night near my feet. Well, it seems that last night the house was a bit warmer than usual, so she decided that she could sleep on one of my pillows. I had no idea, as, for once in her life, she didn't walk on my face to settle in place. When I rolled over on the other pillow (which is partially stacked on the one she was sleeping atop), my head apparently rolled over her skinny little nekkid butt & tail, because I was quite assertively hissed at! I've spent time with her every single day of her life (aside from times when I was out of town for more than one night), and she's never expressed her displeasure in such a manner!

It was a bit of a shocking wake-up call, however as it was not accompanied by a swipe of the paw/claws, it WAS kind of funny!

When I moved into my place, back in January, there were a handful of ferals in the neighborhood, including a couple of tabbys that are totally into trying to get IN the house with me.  Obviously, with my purebreds (1 sphynx, 1 dwelf), that are part of a breedable line, and without fleas, I REALLY don't want to bring other cats into the house, but that hasn't stopped them! Well, the female, I noticed about 2.5 weeks ago was suddenly FAT... or pregnant.  When I arrived home today, after a REALLY crummy start to the week (extra long day at work yesterday topped off with a flat tire halfway home, not enough sleep either Sunday or Monday nights), she'd had her kittens in a box on my front porch. 1 didn't make it but the other 4 seem healthy and active. She's let me check them, and as long as I put them back in the box, she's fine with me touching them. While I'm gone this weekend, my upstairs neighbors are going to make sure she's fed & watered for me.

Hello all, my cat just had kittens 2 days ago!  Six were born, but one died right after birth. (It was already dead when we discovered them. They were born sometime between 7 am and 2 pm friday.) The runt unfortunately didn't make it either. It must have  been too weak to nurse, and expired last night.  For them being just 2 days old, it sure does seem like momma is spending a lot of time out of the box. I know she needs breaks and to eat, drink and use the litter pan, but right now she's just laying, seemingly unconcerned on the kitchen floor in another room.  She's been away from them a lot today, or it seems to me.  Once yesterday when I felt like she was gone too long, I put her back in with them.  The 4 remaining babies don't seem to be in any distress,  no crying or anything, and they just squirm around a bit and sleep in a little kitten pile.  Should I just leave momma alone, and assume she knows what to do?  How do you know if she's being an attentive enough momma?  I've read sometimes queens don't have the mothering instinct and will abandon them, or just not be a good mother.  I'm probably being silly, she probably knows better than I do, but I've never had newborn kittens before!

I'm a cat lover and will post some pics of mine and some of Mimick (Peter Andres's cat, the Glass Blower from Scarborough) whenever I can master the fine art of posting photos. My computer is ancient with USB ports that don't work, so I'll have to do it on another computer.

We have several Kitty's but this one is my buddy.  His name is Pandy and he is a super rare male tortise shell.

We thought he was a girl until we took him to get fixed. The vet couldn't believe it and made a huge deal about it.
