Salem Witch: octawussy: @Salem Witch and @Tigerose: We took B-Bot to Florida a few weeks ago. Never have the chance to go on vacation and since moving into our new place there's no one nearby to keep an eye on her while we're gone. So, we loaded up kitteh and all of her stuff. Since we were able to use a friend's condo, I brought the scratching post so she didn't tear up anything:

On an afternoon trip I bought a small dog harness so she could go down to the beach. I had to have my boyfriend's help to put it on her, though:

Love this!

She was good but was super overwhelmed by children wanting to pet her. She was too out of her element to scratch them, thank goodness.

The sand came off with a good dusting. :)

Cat duster slippers
Feel like your cat is, well, lying around and not doing enough around the house? Why not strap these cat duster slippers on its paws so that your kitty can help dust your floors as it strolls around. "Obviously you'll have to ignore the fact that they lick their anus ... then lick their paws, thus spreading cat anus all over your nice new floor boards," Brandish.com says.

First off, thank you o Great Giver of Total Fark. The furry ones and I are quite happy :)

Latest word on Buddy is that I can pick him up on my way to work tomorrow. He'll stay will me and then mom will pick him up after running errands. Rocks having a cool and understanding boss. I'm hoping they can get some leads but not going to count on anything. Maybe 4chan, or whoever they are, should track them down :)

Will post pics when I get him back from the vet (if I can remember how). Then everyone can sign his little cast :)

We had a bit of a heartbreak with our foster-litter of five kittens this past Friday. Meep, one of the two black-and-gray tabbies, was found to be FeLV positive and euthanized. He was in to be fixed and when the test showed the result, they just...didn't wake him. His brother Gavroche and sister Elphaba were okay, their brothers Fred and George had been adopted already, so we're waiting to hear, and very luckily we had our own 'big' cats vaccinated last year. We'll get them boosters to be safe, but the shelter ladies' guess was that Meep probably got it from his Mama Cat shortly before the car got her. We had bottle-raised he and his siblings from just after their eyes opened, and to have him taken so suddenly was awful. I want to find some way to endow research toward a cheaper, better test that can be done on feline neonates, and cheaper, so more shelters can afford it.

Husband and I took it pretty badly. Last year's foster litter, we lost Two-Tone to urinary tract blockage, and since this was almost a month later, we thought this batch might all make it. The shelter ladies were so understanding, though, and just as sad about it as we were. They consoled us with praise for how happy Meep had been, and how well loved in his short life. His last brother, Gavroche, is expected to be adopted soon, or I'd take the little guy myself, 'five cats already' or not.

At least our little guy gets to be with his real mother and all the beloved lost kitties of Caturday at the Bridge. If I do nothing else right in my life, there will at least be cats there to vouch for me.

Since nobody in our Southern area seems to want black cats, we brought little Elphaba, the only female of the litter, home to live with us until my Mom's oldest tabby passes on (she's in her twenties and fading,) at which time Elphie will succeed to the office of Director's Cat for our family's performing-arts studio in Pittsburgh. Mom loves black cats and talks to her kitten over the phone, which, since I sound almost exactly like her, puzzles little Elphie for just a second before she purrs. We're considering setting a webcam up for some Kitty Skype.

Branch Dravidian: A question for the hive mind:

Manjula (5-year-old spayed female) appears to be having issues with boredom and separation anxiety while I am out of the house. I am contemplating getting her a companion cat, but when I ask experts for advice I get conflicting information.

My vet says that I need to get a (neutered) male, as two females will treat each other as rivals. He suggests a kitten or very young adult so she does not feel threatened, and there is no question from the start who is the alpha and who is the beta.

The staff at the shelter I got her from say that sex is not important, but that the new cat should be an adult (2 years +) because older cats have little patience with a kitten's neediness and playfulness.

Any thoughts?


MHO...males and females divvy up territory differently. Does the shelter know its kitties?
You want one who is definitely beta (second banana) in purrsonality and won't challenge your alpha-girl. I would recommend a male, but that's just me.

Not a critter, but something I was thinking about after the fools dropped off Guinness..... imagination, I haz one. Lemme show you it....


Check out this article about an animal abuse registry (new window). It's in Oregon too, but it's an older article. I wonder if it ever went any further?

I did a quick search and there are a couple registries out there, but they look as if they're failed attempts by individuals with good intentions. They're either in their infancy or haven't been updated for years. I doubt anyone would really bother looking at them before they adopt out.

It would sure be nice to have a well maintained and respectable national abuser registry. (maybe *that's* my calling in life...)

Once again, you did good micromedic!

Shhhhhh! Don't tell anyone, but my favorite part of the kitten-hood is being able to pose the sleeping kitten with toys for a photo session before they wake up. They sleep so soundly you can move them around and they won't wake up.

Do it!

Start collecting empty (or full) beer bottles, cigarette butts, condom wrappers, lipstick, chap stick cozies, whatever and start snapping.


OMG!!!!!! buwahhh hahahahahh!!!
the one with the chapstick cozie might get some questions as he's a guy hahhahha!
