Hi,

My name is Michelle and I'm new to "pet forum". My son and I moved to Austin 5 yrs ago from NY. I have three cats - 2 girls & 1 boy. They keep me entertained everyday.

I decided to join so I can talk to other per lovers, mostly cats, about health, nutrition, etc. I'm looking forward to discussing the life of a cat with fellow cat lovers.

Talk to you soon,

Hi Shell- That's a pretty name. What do your cats look like?

I used to take care of cats for many years- love 'em, but for some reason I now have four dogs. One of my dogs is a Shiba Inu mix, who is quickly living up to the Shiba reputation for being one of the most cat-like dogs. Hee-hee. He moves like a tiger, not like a wolf. Very affectionate, but also has that "other worldly" detached place he regularly goes to like a cat. Rarely barks- quiet like a cat. And frequently likes to just wander around the yard exploring in an absorbed manner, not getting excited about other dogs through the fence or needing a lot of attention to enjoy himself. Yup, like a cat. :- )

Hi,

I like dogs too. I used to have a Husky when I was a child. I would love to get a dog but my apt is too small for a big dog. That's why I have cats. I like Shiba Inu's.

Two of my cats need an attitude adjustment. LOL. My male cat is a cry baby. My 2 yr-old started having seizures or convulsions. Her first episode was a few months ago. She had one tonight but this one was pretty bad. She urinated on herself, bit her back leg causing it to bleed and when she bit her front paw it got stuck in her mouth.

Have you ever experienced this when your took care of cats?

Ouch, that sounds rough for your furkid and you. No, I'm afraid I have no experience with pet seizures, but others here might. Have you spoken with a vet about it?
