canavar: Hi folks!

First, I want to thank  MizMezcalita again for the month of TF. This is the first time I have been privileged enough to get here early. TY!!

Dijon is doing AMAZINGLY well...she has been at the vet getting daily care for 10 days now and WOW. I couldn't get there  Tuesday or Wednesday but i went yesterday and for the first time since the day the vet picked her up, i looked at her underside. it looks fantastic...i mean it still looks bad....but BUT it looks worlds better than it did.

I brought her some of her favorite foods and a brush. She is kind of a mess still and really needs a bath but it has to wait a while longer. She is sporting a cone-of-shame too, so she cant even groom herself. So i helped her out. It was probably the first time in her life she had ever been brushed and she loved it!

I also decided that when the vet lets her leave, she will just come home with me. She will need to stay in the carrier for a while anyway(it is a decent-sized carrier) so I figured I can just keep her upstairs in my room with the door closed. The 3 other cats won't be happy but they will live.

Sherpaoffered to help me learn to post pics last week....thinking I may take him up on it. Technology and I have a very rocky relationship.

Happy Caturday Everybody!!!


So glad Dijon is doing well... thank you for caring and doing what needed to be done..  Sherpa can definitely help you on the posting issue.. he,s good.... and I got dibs on next month's TF...

syzygy whizz: Hello everybodeee!

 ^-^

nekom: Hey cat folks!  My last childhood pet I'd had since I was 12 crossed that rainbow bridge a few years ago, after nearly 20 years on this Earth.  She was a pure white cat, unknown breed from a stray litter born outside of a video store my aunt worked at at the time.  My daughter is half the age I was then, but I want her to have a similar experience.  So here's my question:  Keeping in mind that I will ONLY consider rescue/shelter animals, what traits should I look for in a cat to have the best chance at a long life?


There's no guarantee for fur people as to lifespan. All I can suggest is one who is healthy to start.
Length-of-life is no way to measure the love, joy and companionship an animal shares with you.
Kaminari was with us for only 8 years, but she still lives in our memories as one of the best.
Baby Shimrod had 6 weeks with me...but I will never forget...or regret the joy and laughter and sheer love we'd managed to cultivate in that time.
It hurts when they have to go, and you want to put that off as long as you can...but don't make that a reason NOT to adopt...that they may not live long enough to suit you. They will stay with you as long as they can, and will love and live in every minute they have with you.

There is a thread on the main page about dog butts. I posted this pic and someone said it looks like an angry Eskimo coming at ya.

It's true. I can't stop laughing.

sherpa18: Perhaps he simply faded into the wood, because he could not bear to say goodbye. Only Fare thee Well, with a flick of the tail, a glance over the shoulder, and into the forest he fades.


That she does. Reminds me how my Simba left, Easter evening 2010.

Maybe I'll just take my daughter to the shelter some day and see if any of them seem to click.

Best plan yet.

My first ever feline overlord came to me because I decided I was eventually going to get a cat. I went to the humane society to "just see what was available". This grey kitty was hiding in the back of the kennel as I was checking out all of the kitties. Next time I passed by his kennel, he was at the door. I looked at him, he stuck a paw out between the bars and meowed at me. When I took him in my hands, he rubbed his cheek on my cheek, started purring, and curled up against my chest and took a snooze. Needless to say, he was home with me that evening and was with me for almost 18 years.

Biscuit's hair is too much like cotton candy. Wolf has a really heavy coat that can be shaped better.
Although, she didn't taper the mane as well as she usually does for either of them. They both look like floating heads.

On shelter cats:

Our last three have been from shelters. The dear departed Thora was my first shelter, she picked me out. I was in the shelter for the second time to look at another cat, Thora reached out and grabbed my shirt with her claws as I went past and started purring as she grabbed me. I felt really guilty that night and went back to sign the papers. The second shelter (Panther) was when my kid was 4 and thought he wanted a dog but was highly allergic. Every month I would take him through the humane society to see how the allergies were. This time he saw a kitten and the two of them bonded immediately. For over two hours they would both hiss at anyone trying to separate them. So the wife was called, she tried for over an hour and gave up. Our third shelter (Gideon, shown in a picture above) was there with a note that he was "unsociable". Poor gid looked at me and started screaming. We "held"a conversation to the amusement of the staff. The poor cat was miserable in the booth. They let me in with a brush to try and get some burrs out warning me that I would be severely clawed. To everyone's amazement Gideon let me not only brush him, but also cut out really bad burrs. All fees were waived if I took him. So I did. As it turns out, someone really abused the poor thing and it did take a couple of months until he "joined" the family and other cat.

I wouldn't know, the white one is in ninja mode this evening, he sneaks out to get some noms, and then goes back into his box in the closet... I was gonna worry about it, but I think he just might have found my rum stash  :o)
