I recently started a new job, and my Cat Man will NOT let me sleep! I get up super early, and lately he's decided to start bouncing off the walls around 3 am so that I can't sleep anymore. I can't shut them out of the bedroom, because I know they'll claw and cry at the door all night, preventing sleep that way too. Even if you wake up half way just to roll over, he knows it and will start bouncing around the pillows, bonking me in the face with his face, crawling all over... Ugh, I don't know what to do to make him stop and just relax!! He wasn't like this before when I had to get up early, only now!

Took self out that time, now I at least am back. Can't blame Ginger; mis-placed keystroke this time. Plumbicon's off to Harmony Lodge as often; still doesn't keep sleeping bag & air mattress over there, let alone camp stove.
Figures it quit raining so hard when we returned. Flood watch out for SW OH; we deliberately chose a hilltop for just that reason.

How sweet, nothing cuter than orange kittens.

For some reason, people in this area won't adopt male orange tabbys so when I saw them at the kitten nanny (the humane society's bottle baby nanny) I knew I had to take all 3 boys, I couldn't separate them. They're together all of the time. If one gets separated he will cry and the others go find him. I was able to go feed them twice a week from the time they were a week old until I brought them home Saturday.

The single sweetest, most laid-back and affectionate cat I've ever had was male marble-cake orange tabby with orange eyes. He was a big fella and solid muscle but he had the softest fur I've ever felt on a shorthair and the endearing habit of crawling into your bed and curling up next you you so you'd wake the next morning cuddled up to a purring ball of fur. I sure miss him sometimes....My current lovely is a bit more aloof but incredibly affectionate when she's in the mood. Still not sure what exactly she is because she's the only cat I've ever seen with her color pattern she's a shelter kitty of course). Any of you farkers have an idea?
[s9.postimage.org image 640x480]
(btw she's not fat just fluffy , she's full grown now and still less than 7lbs)


I think that the pattern is called Turkish Van, the color appears to be brown tabby and white.

I doubt that there's anything that can be done about it. It's probably perfectly legal to sell the trap, which can be used to catch any animal of a certain size. Someone setting traps like that would be pretty easy to stop, anyway, once someone's onto them and just starts taking and trashing their expensive traps. Just hope you don't get a poisoner (as happened not far from here a while back). Went on for quite a while, no one ever found out who was doing it, although I was told it eventually stopped when certain people moved away.

Done (on two IDs) I'll work on the others gradually.

If anyone else wants to help use the eBay search "coiled spring traps for coyote, beavers,cats,trap,trapping,trap" as it will take you directly to the offending listing:

Specific violation according to ebay is: "The item in this listing is a steel jaw leghold trap with a spread of 5 1/2 inches or bigger with teeth or straight jaws."

Listing states: These traps have 4 springs and a 6 1/2" jaw spread. A favorite for cats and coyotes.

Clearly a violation! Any other eBay members please help. Regardless of the seller's intent (big cats?) a pet could easly be caught in these cruel devices.

I had a cat that did something similar, except it was cat litter. She was upset over the state of her litterbox, so she ripped open a bag of litter, somehow spread it out of the floor, and then relieved herself in it.

gah! That is awful. I am not an ebayer, but I hope that those who are will report these people. Aren't leghold traps banned in most places? Not only that, but what are you allowed to trap by law, unless you are a native american? I dunno, makes me wonder!

Hi Fran! Good on your owner for getting an older feline. Tell us your story! And Welcome!
 
2012-04-28 04:59:44 PM  
Happy Caturday to all - this is my first time posting. :-)

Back in 2008, I adopted a cat named Frankie. Frankie came from a foster organization that, sadly, has so much business, it is all they can do to keep the kitties healthy, fed, and housed, so there isn't much time for socialization. So when I adopted her, they warned me that you could not pick her up. I'd had cats before and I knew some of them weren't thrilled about being picked up, so I figured it was just that and I could deal with it.

Well, it wasn't.

You really can't pick Frankie up. It is full blown, "OMG I'M GONNA DIE" scratching, hissing, biting, all the tools in the scared kitty arsenal. Plus, not only was she so scared of being picked up, she didn't allow people to touch her unless she initiated the contact AND you could not touch her in two places at once. If a situation gave her an idea that she was about to be picked up, she beat a hasty exit.

I am partial to grey and white cats, and I wasn't about to return her to the foster. I just decided that I could respect that about her and I'd only pick her up when it was 1000% necessary (vet appointments, etc.) and I wouldn't push her on contact. Everybody deserves to have their boundaries respected, and I don't think animals are any different than the rest of us in that.

So, fast forward to 2012. We (two dogs, Frankie, and I) are moving several states away to help take care of my mom who was diagnosed with lung cancer. I was sweating how I was going to get her into the carrier, how she'd handle 12 hours in the carrier in the car, plus an overnight hotel stay. Was the progress I made with Frankie over the the past four years (now I could,if I did it right, touch her in two places at once, she comes when called, and reports for admiration/cuddles at night when the light is off) going to be wiped out by this trip? I was afraid it would be.

But she surprised me. She went in the carrier by herself (I think she decided going in on her own was better than being put in), and other than some crying when we were going slower than highway speeds (Speed Kitty), she was a rock star. I left her in the bathroom in the hotel and she actually came out for attention when I'd go in to see her. When we got to my mom's, she hid for a few hours but that night, reported for pets like nothing had happened.

Conversely, the dogs spent most of the trip barfing (one in the hotel bed, the other multiple times driving up the New Jersey Turnpike after breaking into his arthritis chews and forcing me to call Poison Control. Why yes, he is a Beagle!).

It has been hard moving up here and dealing with mom's illness, and Frankie provides a reassurance that is...different than the dogs give. Doggie comfort is "Everything's OK, I think, but you should pet me so I'm sure." Kitty comfort is "Duh, I *told* you everything was fine. Now rub the side of my face. No, over here."

Since she is so nervous of strangers, Frank doesn't get the admiration that the dogs get from other people, so I wanted to share how proud I was of her for handling the trip so well. Thanks, Frankie Pants, for being my bestest kitty friend.

Plus, the picture just cracks me up. I took it for a friend so she could see how Frankie was adjusting and she pointed out the writing on the box. It seems the exact opposite of the look on her face.

She was my cousin's friend's cat...he went to Afghanistan and (then Carmella) had nowhere to go...my cousin is allergic and Fran is a very large handful! They were going to dump her at a shelter and at first I was sadly ok with it BUT second thoughts overwhelmed me. She's the sweetest kitty in the world. Needs to be in your face having your utmost attention all day and all night.
I was very hesitant especially since I have an older kitty, I'll post her pretty face too, but the 2 ladies worked it out and now we wouldn't know what to do without her!
 
2012-04-28 05:07:52 PM  
Snausages 75 thank you for sharing your story, and YEAH for your awesome kitteh. It takes a great deal of patience to deal with a poorly socialized cat. I know, I am owned by Eli the Bitey Cat. And while he is better, he will still schiz out sometimes and bite/attack.

The mailman is terrified of him. (We had to agree to keep him indoors until the mail has arrived. And even then I give the guy a running start)...

Sorry to hear your Mom is ill, I am sure she will take great comfort in having you and your critters there.

Isn't that the way though? Cats usually work it out, and a younger cat usually becomes subordinate to the older.

Amazing how cats will eel themselves into your life. Didn't know you had that space within you to fill did ya? Yep, it's like that. :)

Got Riktor's bloodwork results...the boy is in great shape except for a slightly elevated globulin (should be '5' and it's 5.1).
Sainted Vet says not to worry- indicates a possible infection/inflammation...and I suspect Riktor got in (read: 'went and picked') a fight a few days ago.
No visible wounds, just his coat was kinda ruffled and he seemed tired.
Riktor seems to think he's got something to prove.
I guess he either won or made his point...


Gonna make the tooth-cleaning appointment next week.
Think I better lay in some more catnip...between apologies, rewards, and 'just cos' we're getting pretty low.

no we very much had a scuffle, Sass took care of several of them herself and they called me to come get her because she went crazy on all their farking asses...good! I should have sued but I was 18 school and work full time so I just stopped going there and gave Sass the best life I could to recover. She still has Nam Flashbacks but not so much anymore.
 
2012-04-28 05:27:54 PM  
syzygy whizz isn't that the truth? When Eli has been out in the rain his coat is as soft as can be. Too bad you can't bottle that! Although I suppose you could collect it, and warm it up at bath time for kitty....just wouldn't be the same though...

Glad your kitty has a clean bill. I know he won't enjoy having teeth cleaned, but his mouth and the rest of him will be! Besides, I think that the less inflammation in hooman and in kitteh, the healthier the heart and rest of the organs..

I am going to be brushing Eli's teeth tonight, and using the new tooth gel I bought him...hopefully he won't foam....and I won't bleed!

Unfortunately, it takes a lot to get sellers banned. Ebay has it's policies, but they make their $ from successful sales, not the buyers.

I hit your link above with a report.

For anyone wanting to put forth some effort, it's not difficult, and for those without eBay accounts, it's easy to sign up. I've been on eBay for over 10 years, made a ton of $ and have some great finds.

the REPORT button is on the right by the "tabs". Click it, then it will take you to the Report Page
to make it easy, here's the report page with the selections.

Only report those traps with an illegal "jaw spread" of 5 1/2" or larger. The smaller ones should be illegal on eBay, but aren't. One step at a time.

laulaja: reddot et al, now I feel guilty. Feel I should offer to help, or just go help, with the leghold trap campaign, but I don't do eBay. Can neither be everywhere nor do it all.

It's easy to "Do eBay". In the time it takes to post a string of photos, size them, file them, etc., you could make an impact.

Everyone has their priorities. I'm going to make this cause one, for a while.

Thanks. His dad's pretty OK, and his kick-ass uncle's just a bonus. He'll do fine.

dosboot: Under the listing, if you click "report item" under "category" you can click "Prohibited or restricted item" Under "Reason for Report" you can click "Animals, plants, and wildlife" Under "Detailed reason" click "Animal traps"
Strength in numbers. If we can get some numbers, Ebay will make a business decision and take these inhumane posters off the site. Let's make this Caturday a one to remember.


Done. Leg traps meant for any animal are inhumane, IMHO.

Hello all you fellow cat lovers. Well, someone's black momma cat decided our back acre was the perfect place to have her babies. It took us a few days with a cage trap to catch the momma, and the kitties, but we finally did it. We now have them in our enclosed 6ft x 6ft cat (or dog) kennel we have in the back yard. But we have no idea what to do with them. We already own five rescue cats in our home (all indoor cats, and all fixed updated shots, etc) Any ideas on how to get these ferel cats more calm and what to do with them? Any ideas would be great. Our local no kill places are pretty full of cats, so I think we're on our own. Sucks, but they're so cute. All black too.

Here's some pics...

Not right this minute, as all here need fed shortly. Also not sure I have pix that'd help. Would need to search. Sizing should no longer be a problem. Not writing off any more, will at least consider, like a Sw Ad all day wksp in June I said I might attend....
