predle: Does anyone have any ideas on how to deal with a calico kitten who has a huge cattitude? I had always heard how unpredictable calico's and torties are, but having one of each that are very predictable cuddle bugs I had a hard time believing it. My vet is always amazed at how Lucy and Morticia are so friendly and easy to work with. The only strange and unpredictable one around here is Juno, but that's a whole different story.

I'm taking care of my neighbor's 7 month old calico kitten and this kitten is nuts. The first couple of times I went over there (when the owners were still home), the cat would plant herself on my lap, purr and want all sorts of attention. The last couple of times she has jumped in my lap and asked for attention, the first time she hissed at me so I stopped petting her and she jumped down. The next time she jumped on my lap and asked for attention, but I wanted to see how things went so I just left her alone, she turned around hissed, bit my arm and scratched me. I played with her for quite a while before to tire her out but that didn't help. I've used soft eyes with her and she does it right back, but then she'll hiss or bite or scratch, or all three. I'm not afraid of Cali, but it's going to be a long week for both of us if this keeps up. Also she tries to get out when I open the door and I really don't want to lose this kitten. Next time I go over I'm going to take a feather on a stick toy and see if I can totally wear her out. I'm going to open the door just wide enough to put the toy in to distract her which should keep her from trying to get out. Then I'll try to get her to play until she collapses, maybe then she'll sit on my lap and want some lovin' and not attack me. If anyone else has any other suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

What a sweet, friendly and totally predictable Tortie and Calico might look like.[predle576.smugmug.com image 640x480]


Cassie is a bit less friendly and not totally predictable.  She tends to get more biatchy when ignored than when she's receiving attention.  For instance, the other morning I hadn't gotten up yet and was having Cassie cuddle times when I started to fall back to sleep.  She bit the hell out of my arm (4 fang marks and a bruise, no broken skin).  Sometimes she'll be purring and happy and then suddenly freak out and bite/swipe at me for no apparent reason.  She hears a lot of colorful language if I'm not expecting the switch or am asleep and get bitten.  The odd part is, she'll be pissed off for a few minutes then come back and expect to get loved on some more.  With the guy and kid, she makes it fairly obvious she's getting annoyed (flatter ears, angry mews, angry tail twitching).  With me, no such luck!  Probably because she knows how I'll react to it.  Best I can say is watch for signs of the abrupt turn of character and be faster than the kitten if you can (that works best for me when I'm awake).  I've gotten to the point where I can read Cassie and guess what she's about to do.  The bite from the other morning was the first time she'd actually make fang contact in several months.  I wish I could give you more advice... the ones with Torti-tude are... interesting.

So the saga of the bottle babies...

Lost the one with the belly wound, he crashed on Sunday and it was best to let him go to the bridge :(
His brother is doing well and eats like a freaking pig. His eyes are not open as well but the little brat won't hold still long enough to get a good pic of them. Here is one of him from last night.

Morticia can look mean, but she never is, except with Juno, but as I said before, that's a whole different story.

I'm guessing that by the time they get home I'll have this figured out, or at least I hope so. I wish I could bring Morticia and Lucy over to give Cali a good talking to, probably not a great idea though.

Some jerk-ass is STILL setting off fireworks on my block! 4:30 this morning...BOOM!!!! And then a few minutes later, the ones that go POW......sparkler sounds. I was running around frantically looking out my windows to try and see WHO is doing this! No a soul to be seen. So, I yelled out the window at them!! I'm sure that put the fear of DOG in them, and I expect that it won't happen again.

I think that's a good idea. At seven months old she's probably ready to jump out of her skin with pent up energy.

I agree! And maybe the next time she tries to bite you, grab her (gently) by the scruff of her neck, and say "NO!" might get her attention for a second, or two.

Can you believe I am just at the bottom of page two?? So much stuff to be done post vacation, including ridding the garden of gargantuan weeds. Yeesh. Planted two hydrangea, a purple cone flower and two " butterfly weeds" all are Perennials.

And, just as I was relaxing, sherpa18 called! So good to hear his voice. He was sad that he could not meet with the Ohio gang. I told him we understood..I am so happy that he has landed, and can look for new jobs..I hope a kitteh comes to him soon...

Sherpa... glad to see you drop by... we need you here...  doing a small move myself... the new maintenance room has the shelving in it, toolboxes are being brought in, and I have an incredible amount of stuff to go through and store or dispose of... will be super busy tomorrow sorting and storing... have full access to the forklift truck for the weekend, which will help a bunch...
    Had a couple of yard visitors this evening.. two cats from the next block... one went after Fred and got his clock cleaned, the other sat there and behaved.. Fred went over and checked him out... no hostilities there... he hung around for a while and then left.... first time I have seen them....  Fred might be kinda chunky but he is way fast... fight didn't last 5 seconds...

My cat Fluffy Kitty made her way to the rainbow bridge this week, after battling vaccine associated sarcoma for a few months. She was 13, and was the such a sweet cat, I will miss her. We did the best we could for her, we had her original tumor surgically removed, and the vet referred us to an veterinary oncologist, but for a 13 year old cat my mother and I decided that putting her through that would be insane. She was doing quite well until the end, but she eventually was too weak to do much besides eat and use the litter box, and after taking her back to the vet on Wednesday, it was decided that it was her time to go. Goodbye Fluffy Kitty, I will see you again some day :-(


So very sorry for your loss. I am sure that Fluffy Kitteh looks down upon you and smiles, having had such a good hooman. She will be there to greet you, rest assured. Heaven, is that state in which we once again meet those in our lives who we loved, and who loved us as well.
