    I have two cats who were born in that Armory stable. So many memories of riding in that indoor. It was truly vast! :yes:

    Much history associated with that place, too. It was such a bummer when the...

    I'm a rank outsider but I got to say: the thoroughbred obsession that traditionally flourishes among a small percentage of the COTH posters is really something else.

    Unless you don't accept that...

    Simple but effective solution that has worked for me: take packing tape, make it into long loops with the sticky side out. Stick it to the carpet, making as many loops as necessary to cover the area....

    Oh man, this is timely. My orange cat, now 14, is a serial humper. He has abused many a textile in his day(polar fleece, wool blankets, my cashmere hoodie :no: ) but the sexiest fabric of all time as...

    Wow, these stories are all really interesting. I think the behavior of cats in groups is a lot more complex than people often realize. There doesn't seem to be a lot of information available on the...

    Cat Pack Altruism

    In Dressagetraks’ thread (which I love BTW) he says after his kitten was trapped behind the furnace the other cats were visibly concerned and gathered around to comfort her by licking her.

    Yeah, don't use scissors. Way too much likelihood of inflicting a nasty and painful cut when you least expect it. Cat skin is like tissue paper, and it does gets pulled up into the mats. Even if you...

    Jingling for you and this lovely cat. I also think the prognosis is relatively quite hopeful, at least compared to a CRF diagnosis. There may be many things you can do to treat, possibly cure this...

    Bookish purr-related anecdote: Margaret Atwood wrote a science fiction novel in which a rogue biogeneticist kills off most of earth's population with a plague and cooks up a new species in the lab to...

    Based on my experience with young ferals, I believe these cats will both make up into lovely house cats, given time.

    Just keep the environment serene and consistent, and don't be in a rush. The...

    I think this plan has potential to work very well indeed if you can make it attractive and fun to read. (And obviously, you can!)

    I think with more effective c'atvertizing, we maybe could change...

    I'm so sorry for your loss. What a regal looking cat, what a personality! 9 is indeed much too young, but it sounds like she enjoyed a wonderful life with you.

    I personally wouldn't waste time messing around with the plastic claw tips. It sounds like you just need to redirect this cat's energies. As you know cats need to scratch - she's not going to stop...

    One of the great things about cats--if you like cats--is that unlike dogs the vast majority haven't been bred selectively for specific traits. In a sense they aren't really domestic animals at all,...

    I have also heard people say they learn from the mother, but I'm not sure this is true. I have two full sisters who were raised in the exact same environment. One is super-athletic but lacks focus......

    IMO cats are much more social animals than they are given credit for. I think that most of them enjoy and benefit profoundly from one another's company. These chilly evenings my little group of five...
