    I used it via the diffuser when we moved a couple of years ago. The younger cat, who is a hider, hung out by the diffuser for weeks. Seemed like it was a comfort to her until she finally adjusted...

    I knew a gelding who did this. Owner cleaned the gelding's sheath, found and removed a HUGE bean in the gelding's urethra, and presto, kicking behavior stopped.

    Read abovethelaw! It's a pretty fair assessment of the situation.

    This is sort of close to what mine looks like, though this one is substantially shorter, the base and top seat are much smaller, and it lacks the climbing hole that mine has.

    I inherited a home-made cat tree for my cats. I'll have to look at how the vertical upright is connected to the base. It's 5' tall and solid. It's built like a capital "I".

    Frozen here (less sodium), from Costco. My dogs dig them - I use them as treats (carrot bits too) and I give it to my oldie as a source of fiber and to make him feel more full, as he's on a diet.
