Re: Feline Follies

One time a small male cat showed up at my dad's doorstep, walked right in and made himself at home. Fortunately, the cat had a collar and tag. He belonged to someone who lived half a mile away! Outdoor cats do tend to roam, but neutered males don't usually wander that far. I imagined the cat traversing the neighborhood, going from backyard to backyard and chatting with old kitty friends like Burt Lancaster in The Swimmer.

Gah! What do I do now???


You make sure you have enough cat food and litter in the house, of course.

We've had a bit of a crisis here so my housemate's girlfriend is staying with us for a bit. She's having to bring her own cat so I was wondering what advice people may have regarding introducing her cat to mine...

Re: Feline Follies

Woo. Problem resolved here. Kitty woke up this morning, "asked" to be let out. He went outside, looked around and then headed out in a very purposeful manner. Not running scared mind you. Just looked like he (she?) had some intent behind his course. And no, I didn't slam the door behind him or anything.

It remains to be seen if he will return.

Re: Feline Follies

Well, even if kitty doesn't return, it spend a lovely warm night with you, and that deserves a "well done".

I must admit I'm a bit envious of the pics of your gorgeous kitties snuggling up with each other. Our longest-resident cat, Holly, dislikes all creatures except those which can fill her food bowl and scritch her behind the ears, so she never goes anywhere near Lucy and Lizzie. The latter two cats, despite being mother and daughter, barely tolerate lying close to each other. Snuggling is completely out of the question, because one will take a swipe at the other should they accidentally touch when sleeping next to each other. It's sad, really.

He almost sounds like the cat my neighbors had when I was a kid. He started sitting on our windowsill one day so we let him in. Next thing you know he was spending a lot of his nights just sleeping at our place and then we'd let him out again when he wanted to leave. We had all the benefits of having a cat with none of the fuss!

Here he is sleeping on my bed.

Re: Feline Follies

Depending on the neighborhood you live in, you can get away with that. My childhood best friend had a cat named Jackie who, for all intents and purposes, was a stray. She had a litter box and food in their garage, which they always left cracked open, but she was constantly roaming the neighborhood. Lived to be about 20-years old, too!

I'm too paranoid about my cat to ever let go outside for anything. She's a little wieny and would probably die within 5 minutes.

Re: Feline Follies

I think my visitor was someone's indoor cat that got out. I'm guessing she went home and is now locked safe inside. At least I hope. Haven't seen her since.

Re: Feline Follies

You did say she lost a substantial region of fur almost down to the muscle layers by being tossed from a moving vehicle, right?

From that angle, I can't even see those injuries. I take it she's healing rather well?

One thing you can't do with kittens (unless they are the Sphynx breed). With that fluffy fur, you can't get a good seal to blow "raspberries" on their tummies. Plus, they'd probably claw the crap outa' someone if they tried. (No, I've never attempted such myself. I'm not that stupid!)

Sincerely,

Bill

Re: Feline Follies

Yeah, you wouldn't see the injury from this angle. The scar where she was sewn up is hardly noticeable, but her nub of a tail points at an angle. The fur is growing back, but it's still much shorter in that area.

She does seem to be slowly getting functionality back, though. This morning, she managed to get out of her diaper, and then proceeded to squat and pee on our bath mat. We couldn't decide if we wanted to be upset at her peeing there and not in the litter pan, or happy that she was deliberately peeing!

^ Well the bath mat was revenge for something, you can be sure.

^Isn't that the truth?

Hubby has locked Junior out of his office since we got him in October. One day last week, he forgot and left the door ajar while we went out for a few hours. Hubby also had his space heater on, so space heater + cat pee = entire house smelled. Never could find the exact spot where he peed, either, so everything got cleaned, sprayed, aired out, etc.

I think Hubby just lost the battle for territory in our house.
