(People Magazine)   Shelter workers take in an orphaned new-born rescue kitten unable to walk. They made him tiny homemade splints out of tongue depressors, gauze, medical wrap bandages, and tape to keep his legs steady. The result is anything but depressing on Caturday   (people.com) divider line

sunblock_suppository: Hey this is cool, I just got to rescue a kitten, just a couple of hours ago.

My 20lb maine coon had just cornered it in my tool shed and informed me of his successful police action.

I found a scared and underweight kitten, a little grey & tortie girl. Probably about 12 weeks, obviously socialized but she hadn't eaten in days.

We've got her quarantined in the garage until we can get her checked at the clinic Monday. Seems too young to be chipped. For now I just want to give her some calories and safe warm places to nap.


That's great! Thanks for helping make the world a little nicer :-)

Got my proxy-cat fix by going up to my crazy cat lady mom's to do the "Honey-Do" list. I had a rare audience with the ever-kitten Ariana who is a complete rub-slut and back-archer.

I do have big flapjack-flipper hands, but GOSH that kitty is tiny. My hands are exactly one Ariana belly wide.

Thank you for caring for the little one.
I hope your resident policeman approves too.

HookedonOnyx: Why thank you!  Someone gifted me total fark (and you know who you are!)  You sure know how to make a stranger feel welcome, and they don't come much stranger than me.  I see a lost weekend in my immediate future.

At the moment Onyx is standing guard duty looking out into my rain soaked patio, trying to find strays to hiss at.
Ashes is at my feet trying to get my attention by purring loudly...but IT;S A TRAP!!!

Question for those of you with long-haired kittehs.

Finnegan is the first long-haired cat I have ever been owned by. He enjoys the grooming with the Kong rubbery-nibs thing, the regular slicker brush, and the recently obtained Furminator (thanks for the suggestion, almostsane !).

I have kept him pretty smooth, but I did notice he has two or three mats in his "nether regions." He's not a poopy butt at all, but these little mats are just on the inside up on his lower belly.

Needless to say, I am having a hard time getting to them without encountering serious resistance. Nothing seems to be bothering him (though how would I really know?) other than he is not fond of the brush poking around down there. I am going to try and cut them out one at a time as the option become feasible.

Am I doing the right thing? He's never been shaved or anything, and I do worry about his uber-skittishness to begin with.

For dogs at least, the scissors are less stressful than the buzzer.  I think it's a good idea  to start out with the snips before trying the shaver

I have an ex-G/F of 10 years staying in my guest bedroom so she can visit her hospitalized aunt without paying for a hotel room.

People used to kid us about being "wookiee and ewok" because of our respective statures and furriness.

I just sent her this:

Here is my black cat story. Years ago on Halloween a black cat came up on our porch and walked in as if he owned the place. We had a cat at the time so since he had no signs of leaving we welcomed him and he settled in. We named him Shadow. I don't remember how long he was our cat. Both cats were indoor/outdoor. I don't remember how many years he was with us but one day he disappeared. We never saw him again and my daughter said she hoped he found his original family.

Hydroponic Onyx had an issue with "flange butt," where her tush would matt up. I solved the problem with a springtime "lion cut" which had the bonus of making her look hysterical with a floofy head, tail and boots.

morg: Snuffybud: morg: My boy cat got his butt shaved because he wasn't taking care of some matted hair. Oh, the indignity!

/he doesn't seem to mind.

Cisco gets shaved at least once a year.  He can be a poopie butt cat, and he gets mats on his haunches.  I'd post pics but I'm on my phone.

Yeah, I could easily see this being a once or two times a year thing.

Mo figured out that Dresden doesn't sleep on the outside side of the bed. With Mr. Bobug's restlessness, Ushi rarely sleeps on me. Agi is a sleepy heat slut, who burrows into a special blanket between our pillows, and rarely moves. Dres sleeps on top of Agi, or against my feet. Major is Mo's partner in crime, so not a threat. Mo LOVES attention. Well, they all do. I always end up with the babies around me, wanting love.

What can I do? Babies need lovin'

That.

Silly story, the same day I brought Onyx back from the groomer, I found a nest of newborn robin chicks in a tree while mowing the lawn. I sent pictures to a friend.

Then I thought about it. Ummm... Did I just send you pictures of naked chicks and shaved pussy?

When I had a long hair, I used those little embroidery scissors to take out mats. Just be sure to take tiny snips, and at an angle. Sometimes I could just cut the mat, and remover the rest with my fingers by gently pulling it apart. And  yes she was super zen.

Yes, cutting through a mat will make it easier to brush out and save you from worrying about hurting your baby.  We do that to Sasha for
