    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......

    Fearful cats and the Thundershirt

    Here's my problem: I have to take my cats on a cross-country move. After consultation with a vet I thought using a Thundershirt might help calm my fearful cat, but so far the shirt has proved...

    Thinking about you and your cat. She's been through such a lot in a short amount of time, I really feel for her. I'm glad she has you to love her and take care of her.

    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...

    I've posted this before in another context but... in a situation like yours, this is what helped for me. First, distribute the contents of the litter box around the house perimeter in order to give...

    I would like to agree with the poster who pointed out that Hepatic Lipidosis is a very real threat. Some years ago I tried to get my two cats to switch to raw food. One switched without issue but the...

    I use the Slow Blink all the time! And I find that most cats will respond to it, some more than others. They seem to get it, and most will respond in kind more or less immediately. It's like they're...
