    Fabric on a stick with bell

    I ordered this cat toy because my new cat Bella spends too much time under the bed. She needs an interactive toy that can be scratched or bitten instead of my arms and hands. This seems to be a better product than some others based on reviews, but I never had anything like it before. Did I make...

    Litter help please!

    My next cat will be here soon if everything goes purrfectly with the only kitty who meets all of our requirements: a two-year old Bengal/American shorthair/ocicat mix. I was told the adoption counselor wants whoever adopts Aurora to take her home, so time is running out to buy unscented clumping...

    Scratching post in a small area

    My last cat was a mostly horizontal scratcher. My desk chair was the only exception. Now without knowing if my next cat will be a horizontal or vertical scratcher, I am in the market for a scratching post that can be used both ways. Cat trees are out because I don't have enough floor space where...

    Choosing food to buy for a new cat

    I know what my next kitty should eat. I have a couple favorite cat food brands. Having the right food available on adoption day and expecting her to eat it immediately, as much as I wish that could happen, is another matter. What should I buy just to make sure my next cat has food she will eat...

    Finally adopting a cat

    As some of you know, I found a "precious" kitty on last week and after careful searching, she is my favorite cat. Other cats who are within driving distance, which my mom considers less than one hour, either would be a much better fit in someone else's home, are older than I...

    Looking for a cat on Petfinder

    I always believed in adopting locally if possible. It is very important to spend time with the animals before deciding who to adopt. There are too many homeless pets in every shelter, right? Especially cats because more people want dogs. Well, that idea flew put the window when I visited my...

    Computer software upgrade

    Apple has been giving me reminders to upgrade my operating system. Unfortunately I somehow was locked out of my administration account and I need my password to finish the process. Which password? The one I use to wake it up every day does not work. I tried what I thought my password is, but...

    Raccoon in the backyard

    I saw a raccoon in my backyard today. My mom said she saw it yesterday too. It just walked around exploring but made eye contact with me while sitting on the patio. The closest it came to my sliding glass door was less than five feet. It went in and out from under fences, so keeping the back...

    How will I know when to start looking for a cat?

    Daisy crossed the bridge at age 3 on April 18, 2020. I don't want to visit a shelter or the cats at Petsmart yet because of the mask rules many places including veterinarian hospitals have. But what if a shelter is offering a healthy shelter cat who will be available for adoption a certain...

    Neutered cat spraying

    During a recent dental appointment, my hygienist talked about her cats. She said one of her cats was thrown out of the house because he sprayed everywhere. She lives on a farm, but would prefer he stayed inside 24/7 if he did not spray. (I did not ask her what his name is.) I told her to get him...

    toad problem

    Recently. I had to help a dying toad get off my sliding glass door. My mom left it partially open when she went outside to turn off the Christmas tree lights on the patio and that created a space barely big enough for a toad its size to squeeze in. I can't blame her for missing a dark brown body...

    Back on the forum

    After months of thinking there is no way can I read about other people's animals with no pet of my own, I decided this can't go on forever. For the first time in 4 years I will have to celebrate Christmas without a cat. That is making me sad. So here I am again hoping I can spend the holiday...

    My sister adopted a new kitten

    Normally I love cat adoptions, but my sister's latest one is cruel. Her stepdaughter's friend, Malerie, found a 7-8 week old black male outside and took him home. That was supposed to be the end of it. Malerie and her mom "confirmed" they were keeping him. Instead, they took a weekend trip while...
