OK folks, i need a bit of advice. I have been feeding my cats Purina Indoor formula for a couple of years (since the financial troubles started). Mandu has suddenly decided that he no longer likes it so he rarely eats but scratches the rug to cover the bowl. At first, I thought he was just in a mood, but it has been going on for a couple of weeks and he has actually lost weight, not enough to be dangerous since he was a little thicker than ideal, but enough to be noticeable. Mika has no problem with the food. I would like some recommendations for inexpensive food that is still reasonably good. I feed my cats dry kibble free-choice.

sherpa18: neurofunkin: And last but not least, my cat has discovered that the sound of the dryer buzzing means that there are warm clothes that he hasn't had the chance to get his fur all over yet. He can't believe I've been holding out on him all this time.

REMOVE THE DRYER SHEET (FABRIC SOFTENER) THEY CAN BE POISONOUS.
In fact, when the dryer cycle ends, the chemicals are active not only on the dryer sheet itself, but on the clothes.


Better yet, don't use a dryer sheet. They deposit a thin film of oil on your clothes and can actually reduce the absorbency of things like undies, towels, t shirts, sheets, etc. They can also stain fabrics that have a bit of a shimmer like silks and all polyester. Just reduce your drying time a little to stop the static

Gremie gets in those moods every once in a while. I usually pick up a small bag of anything else and let him have that for a couple of days and then mix the old stuff back in until the small bag is gone and then we are back to normal until the mood strikes again.

DDA, I lurk in Caturday threads, but rarely post. Work for the Army National Guard has taken me away from my wife and two cats for now. I desperately want to hug them all. Instead I'm lying on the couch, crying in a pillow, and sending you all the positive vibes I can muster.

I think a beach day is in order. I'll drink one for you and poor some out for Kay.

You can try mixing a little bit of canned food in to try to entice him with the smell. Or some tasty meat. I have to rotate foods about every 6 months with my cat as he gets tired of the same thing (or he just wants to be a dick and make me spend another $25 on a bag of food after I just opened this damn bag). I thought I was being a good human by purchasing him the super expensive grain free/holistic/madebycatgods brands but noooo. He had other plans.

DoomsDayAardvark: Wednesday morning, I was awakened by a call from the emergency vet saying that Kay had taken a turn for the worse, and that I should come see him.  He hung on just long enough for me to get there, and have about 10 minutes to say goodbye.  I held his paw as he took his last breath and drifted away.



I was so sad when I heard about Kay. He was such an awesome cat and and such a fixture on Caturday. All of us will miss your stories and photos of Kay. It's so hard when they are taken so young and so fast. CDK and I send our deepest condolences.

I wrote this little poem several years ago after my brother passed away. Seemed right to put it here...

Happy Caturday Everbuddy!

Can't stay long, it will be raining here soon and I need to go shopping for a sympathy card for my bro's wife's mom's family.  Then, off to the Cabbage Patch to do some cleaning/laundry/drinking.

Alien, if you are out there and have your ears on, stay safe, and please keep in touch if you can.  And remember:  ((((HUGS!!!)))) from everbuddy here!

Perspective is fun to play with.  "Giant" kitty in front is actually little 6 pound Alice, cat in background is her mom Ms. Kitty.

So sorry for all the losses lately, both furry and human.  When I lost my Ginger years ago, I swore no more cats...then the once feral Ms. Kitty presented me with Loki and Alice, and all three have made themselves at home in our hearts and home.  Even now though, 8 years later, I swear I sometimes catch glimpses of Ginger passing by.

A CHALLENGER APPEARS

i521.photobucket.com



She's got a better mustache. Plus she super friendly and a bit of an attention whore. Doesn't matter if you just showed up and are jumping off the walls. She wants to meet you and have you pet her.

Plus her name is Stache. So there's that.

i521.photobucket.com
i521.photobucket.com

She's the exact opposite of a fraidy cat.
Of course, right now she looks a little funny because we shaved her down except for her tail, of which she's very proud, because the dog we have likes to drag her around by the scruff around her neck and it makes her all matted.

i521.photobucket.com

But she doesn't mind, or at least if she does, she doesn't do anything about it other than jumping up on the couch or over to the side of the house where the dog can't go. I think I've only heard her hiss once. And that was when she was super scared because there were 3 dogs fighting over her (two Minpins and our Doxie).
Our 1.5 year old has literally used her as a play mat and I've seen him purposely fall on her because he thinks it's funny. We of course tell him no, but that hardly helps when the cat doesn't mind and won't leave.

Spiralmonkey: My boy is feeling the heat...

[25.media.tumblr.com image 850x634]


Shave. Him.

Srsly.

I had Persians and after I took them to the vet and had them shaved down to about 1/4" they perked up and didn't suffer the heat.

It also reduced hairball events drastically.

It got to the point where they were so more comfortable, they even liked to get baths. Not kidding.

The Ice Queen: So here is my sad, sucky Caturday

My uncle apparently has cancer and it pretty much shows up in his stomach, lungs, liver, and esophagus. Had some biopsies done so they could a) have definte Dx of cancer and b) see if they can figure out the origin tumor and type to know how to treat. Well, surgeon's office apparently said that the biopsies were negative. His MD didn't think it sounded right so was able to track down the actual path report. Um, yeah, weren't negative, the surgeon got crappy samples and the path lab had nothing to work with. Think there is a definite difference between negative and poor sample to test. So he has to go through that portion all over again. Nice huh :(


Wow, that sucks. Glad his MD is more on the ball than the 'surgeon'. And hope your Uncle has another option if he has to have the biopsies redone - definitely want a different surgeon!

{{{Hugs}}} for you and your uncle
