I get my cat back tomorrow. We were separated for 40 days. Someone told me she won’t remember me? I don’t believe it but the thought made me very sad. We were together with almost no breaks for four years. Anyway I can’t believe to see her tomorrow it’s unreal

She might be skittish because you've been away for long. My cat was a bit skittish when I came back after a week vacation. Most likely she'll just need a little time to adjust to your presence after being away that long.

As long as kitty hasn’t picked a new human things should be okay. My sister went to Europe one summer and suddenly her cat became mine and has been my little shadow ever since. On the other hand, my dad is out of town for over a month at a time on a regular basis and the family cats run and greet him no matter how long he’s been gone. Your kitty will likely be happy to see you!

Have you never heard those stories of cats showing up to their owners after being lost for like months or even years. I can't say I have the knowledge to back it up for sure but that makes me think cats have a memory that goes make farther than just 40 days. I'm sure she'll be happy to see you again.

My partner and I took in a cat that was living off the street when we moved into our house last year and she’s really the sweetest little cat. This morning I woke up and she was resting her little head on my cheek and it was so warm and soft and I could feel her purring and I just know today will be a good day.

I just desperately need to let somebody know how much I miss my cat. he died at 12 years old about a month ago and I still can't quite wrap my head around it. I'm dreaming of him pretty much every night though, so at least that's a bit of a consolation - I kind of managed to convince myself that it's actually his little kitty soul coming to spend some time with me when I'm dreaming. which is probably stupid, but hey, at least it helps to an extent. he truly was my best friend. I want to be with him again so much, I'd literally do anything if only it was possible.

I miss you so fucking much, buddy. I hope we'll meet again someday, somehow. in the meantime, please come and visit me in my dreams tonight.

I’m sorry anon. It’s so hard. My cat died about 2 years ago and I only remember seeing her in my dreams twice. The first was right after she died and the second was a couple weeks later. The fact that she had died wasn’t in the dreams, but the second time, I half-consciously knew her presence was unusual and so I grabbed her and held her tight for as long as possible. Miss her so much. Pet your dream-kitty for me please.

My Nigel got adopted by a cat. His sister left her cat with him and never picked her back up. Her and her bf clearly used to fight a lot and my Nigel is the opposite, total chill dude. He went from tentatively feeding her to them being besotted with each other. He buys her good food and litter and she sleeps either on his belly or at his feet. She's a super smart girl who taps on his window to be let in our out, they have their own little routine. She even kisses his face now. My heart SWELLS
I was hugely anti-cat until I adopted my own and it's so cute to see the same thing happen.

How hard is it to get a new cat to bond to an old (8 years) cat? I've never seen my cat interact with another cat but I have the feeling he would hate them. He's just very standoffish, quite anxious in general and he's bossy. I'm just not sure if the stress would be temporary or how stressful it would be for him. I would never do anything to stress him out but I'd love to rescue another cat. Is there a possibility that there is a way to do this that would have minimal stress for him or should I just leave the idea? Am I probably right that he would hate having another cat even though that's just my gut feeling and I'm not experienced with having more than one cat?

Catify your house, put shelves up on the walls so she can explore (though probably not relevant yet for a kitten). Make a nice place to sit at the window, so she can go watch the outside. You can hang up a bird feeder or something like that for cat tv. Also you could trick her into sleeping for those 4 hours. You first have to play with her, really engage her hunting instincts (you might have to experiment with what really gets her going, some cats are more mouse hunters and want you to pretend the toy is a mouse, some want you to pretend the toy is a bird), then give her food. Afterwards she should go to sleep.

I love my kitten so much nonnas, it's insane! He's very playful and very cuddly, he just chirps and purrs anytime he's doing anything, and when me or my brother come back home he is always waiting in front of the door to greet us because he recognizes our footsteps. I hesitated for a very long time to take a cat because I was scared it would be hard and I wouldn't be up to the task but it's been going so smoothly. Can't wait to go home to see him again, I woke up late this morning and couldn't cuddle with him.

I love my two kitties so much. I was panicking on Tuesday cause I tend to do that, and my kitty jumped into bed with me and gave a soft little squeak, and it was like a weight was just magically lifted off of me. She's super sweet and cuddly, used to have this little blue teddy bear she would carry with her everywhere and constantly play with. We still have it, but she never wants it. Guess she's too old for it now, she's 5. I still miss her carrying it around in her jaws, and when she trusted you, she would leave it with you to take care of it. She's so precious. I want to get her to exercise more often since she is getting to be a tad chunky. She usually just likes to lay in bed with my folks and stare at the TV or eat fried chicken. She likes it when I rub her tummy and loves it when I tickle her armpits (she spreads her arms out and gives a little happy squeak). Her two hind feet are so soft and cute I love to rub them. She doesn't like this but she lets me do it, so I rub her little peetsies for as long as she will allow.

My other cat is only 2 years old, and he's like a happy little puppy. He loves to play, you have to play with him until he gets all worn out or he will act up. He's so cute when he's worn out, he just peters out, then goes to lay down on a pillow all stretched out. Sometimes I take him for walkies on his leash. He likes to crawl into paper grocery bags I leave out for him, then I pick up the bags and carry him around as if I just got back from the store after having just bought a kitty. He also likes to crouch behind furniture and jump out in front of me with his arms splayed out to startle me. Then I 'retaliate' by chasing him and then when I catch up he flops down on the ground and I tickle him and he likes to kick me with his hind legs (claws sheathed). He loves to sit on my chest and lick my face, and he likes to curl up in my arms and make me cradle him tummy-up like he's a baby.

I don't think I could emotionally function without kitties.

Nonnies help idk what my cat wants from me! We moved and he didn’t eat until day 3 when he started acting pretty hungry as per old routine. So I get him some food and he licks at it but doesn’t really eat it. I walked away and he followed me so I went back thinking he wanted me to watch over him. He was being so weird — chewing like he didn’t know how to eat and I had to keep mixing the food every few bites or he would stop. He only at half of it. It’s the same food he always used to scarf down in 2 minutes flat. Now he keeps coming to me and rubbing on me purring like he wants to eat, lead me to his food bowl but then he just sits there!

Hello, please update us, I don't know of anything to help but I'm worried for your cat. He might just be anxious and disoriented. Change is very stressful for cats, they are kind of autistic in that way.

No. 1393559

Hello anons, my boyfriend and I were about to clip my cat's claws as they are so long they're snagging on everything. Well, normally, he holds her, I clip, and I'm really good - she's never bled. I actually could do it by myself, but since it's the two of us and it is quicker with my boyfriend holding her, we do it. She is clearly anxious, but we'd always feed her after so she made some sort of positive connection.

Yesterday, my boyfriend was cuddling her and then he was like "oh, let's clip her nails". I was a little hesitant because she was just cuddling him and I didn't think she might react great. But I was like, fine, I'll bite. I took the nail clippers out of their usual place and turned around and she FLIPPED out. I've never seen her so distraught. I wasn't touching her, I was just getting the nail clippers, and when she flipped out, she scratched my boyfriend really, really badly. There was a lot of blood. She was clearly panicked and spent the rest of the day hanging out in a corner as far from the area that happened in. She was too afraid to eat where she normally eats and even though she wasn't hurt, it's like she scared herself by being violent or by the idea of her nails getting clipped. But it's odd, she's usually such a good kitty with her nails being clipped.

It was quite emotional because my boyfriend was so shocked he was crying for quite a while because he had all these scratches all over him.

I'm worried because it's a day after and my cat is still acting anxious. It's strange because my boyfriend is a 100% sweetheart to her, in fact, I treat more roughly than him in how I cuddle/pet her, but for some reason she doesn't care and still likes me (she was my cat before I moved in with my bf) and seeks my affection.

I guess I'm asking why is she acting traumatized from an animal behavior standpoint? It's hard to to not anthropomorphize her behavior.

That’s how one of my old ladies acted when she had a bad tooth but in your case kitty is likely just anxious. Can you try to feed kitty one of those squeezy tube treats? I’ve never had a cat turn one down. If kitty won’t eat you need to get to the vet ASAP because they can become ill from not eating and drinking very quickly.

She's in heat, it'll pass in like one or two weeks. Make sure to keep her indoors if you don't want to accidently get a litter of kittens. Personally I've usually had my cats fixed but they were outdoor cats. I see no issue with not getting your cat fixed as long as you keep her indoors.

But isn't it cruel to make your cat go through this hormonal ride every few weeks? Instead having a good little cat time, she has to obsess about her body needing to be impregnated for so many days in a year, and for what? It's better to offer the animals peace of being free of that.

No. 1398895

I don't think so. I'm not against getting cats fixed but going into heat is natural so I don't really have a problem with it. I know a lot of people don't feel that way but personally I am reluctant to apply a human's perspective of how that would make us feel to the nature of cats.

Getting a pet spayed absolutely is for the benefit of their health.

As per the ASPCA:

“Is it bad to spay a cat?
Spaying prevents uterine infections and decreases the incidence of breast tumors, which are malignant or cancerous in about 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats.”

So yeah spay your cats. Unless you plan to breed them (which unless they’re purebreds that conform to their breed standard, you shouldn’t be breeding them because that inadvertently kills other adoptable cats), you’re just increasing her risk of cancer and making her feel like shit with those hormone spikes without any outlet.

God white trash retards shouldn’t be allowed to have pets.

I'm the nona from a couple months ago that had someone drop the kitten off at our house, we found another kitten, this one rode back in the engine of the car. We could hear there were some noises coming from the engine, and sure enough a black kitten was inside the hood. We have no idea where this kitten came from or if it belongs to someone, it seems docile enough to hold but very scared, good weight but not biting or scratching, so it doesn't seem feral. It's also completely missing the tail, no injury or blood seems like it never had one. Have it set up in the bathroom with food and litter for now, poor thing just huddles in the corner. We're trying to leave her alone and give her space and make any calls around to see if someone is missing a cat. But she also meows constantly when we leave the bathroom, anyone know why?

I wouldn't breed exotics because of the issues they have, but I adopted this guy years ago. A woman who bred them died and her friend had to give them away. I heard about this but considered getting a normal cat instead. But then I checked in months later and he was still up for adoption because he didn't get along with the other cats and nobody wanted him so I got him.
He is super calm but has a deep voice and he's very loud when you shouts. He says "mamma" a lot when he's with my mother lol. Thankfully after 5 years he has no health issues so far, he is a bit lazy though.

>>1340410
>>1339924
Can confirm they have long-time memory. A friend has a cat he adopted that was abused by the original owner. He noticed that she ran away in panic whenever she was in the kitchen and he would lift or grab a pan too suddenly. The old owner must have thrown pans at her which is why she acts like this. My friend didn't knew that at first but he is moving them slowly and trying to hide it from her now. She is okay if it's done slowly.

Once, years after the adoption he thought she was still sleeping in his bed and a guest grabbed a pan without asking to use it. They he noticed too late that the cat was near the door looking, she saw the pan and ran away again and this was more than three years after he adopted her, so they must remember things happening ages ago. If they remember events for years I think that they can remember owners for more than a few months.

Also aren't there cases of cats that disappeared and then decided to go home again to their old owners 5 years later? Maybe they don't remember the owners and just the place, but it would still mean that they have a great memory.

question, sorry for the blog: i'm a first time cat owner, we got kitty and he was really skittish at first, underweight etc. he's become an amazing cat and i love him so much.

anyway, i was unknowingly underfeeding him for a week or two when we switched to a better food. and we frequently go on 3 day trips, so i bought him a filtering fountain watering bowl that only needs to be topped off weekly, and an autofeeder so he gets fed 3x a day (small amount of food, added together is what he needs for his healthy weight)

since i started using the autofeeder he is SO VOCAL to the point where it's driving me crazy. he gets fed at 5am (not vocal bc he's not awake yet), 12pm, and 5pm. he grazes between 5am and 4ish and then goes batshit insane around 4:30 even though the food won't dispense until 5.

should I change the time for the third feeding to 4? should I split it into two not 3? go back to one daily feeding like his old owners were doing? last thing, i only changed it to the multiple times a day thing as he was making SO much noise while working from home for food that it was very distracting. (he has short hair in this bc he had so many deep matts when we adopted him and i didn't want him to kill me trying to brush them out, his hair has grown back)

if he's a healthy weight right now, you may consider if he's actually hungry when asking for more food, or just bored!
giving him food only once a day isn't very healthy, just like having lots of food available all day, as waiting for food is like a motivation for them, and good for both his physical and mental health.
toys that carry food and release over time are a good idea to keep them busy and happy!

my cat always ask for food when she's bored, then after playing with her / going for a walk she completely forgets about it. she also eats much less when she's alone, so it's also a sign she's bored and asking for attention.

Thank you for the good advice, i really appreciate you! i only have experience with dog ownership, lots of dogsitting, and cat sitting but not actually being their parent. I'm home 90% of the time 4-5 days a week, and play with him a ton with things that make him jump and climb. yesterday I did that when he was vocal-made him jump for the squeaker. but I will try to engage the light pens more, and figure out where he is hiding all of his crinkle toys.

you take your cat on walks? my s/o thinks they wouldn't like it but this cat reminds me more of a dog, personality wise, so i've been considering getting him a harness to take on walks. also while i was responding to this he jumped on the keyboard so i think he agrees with your advice

it depends on the cat, really - mine loves going for a walk, but only if the place is calm and feels safe to her! she doesn't like meeting strangers, so i try to walk ker in empty places only. she doesn't mind wearing a harness too.
i've had 10+ cats over my life, and i can say it varies a lot. some of them hated harnesses (so walks weren't a possibility), some of them were super scared of the outside world, and others very social and adventurous.

the only way to know is trying out! it's best to go slow, to calm places, for short periods.
oh, and keep in mind that if he likes it, he may ask you for walks many times a day, even when you're busy, when it's raining… so you'll have to work your patience a little bit. i think it's worth it though!

My other cat is the cuddliest thing ever. I wake up to him kneading on my neck and when he notices I'm up, he'll say hello by giving me licks in my nostril. He loves to be around me and my boyfriend.

Nona I'm so sorry and I'm here for you. I'm sure your kitty really loved you and that you gave them a wonderful life. It's sad that cats live such short lives compared to us, but it's sweet to think that we can provide them with lives full of unconditional love while they're here.

Picrel is my cat who passed away a few weeks ago. She was also the first pet I've ever lost. It happened really suddenly and my mom called me in hysterics letting me know that she'd died. I didn't get to see her a lot after I moved away from home, but she was so sweet and silly every time I came back. Whenever I'd lean in to kiss her, she would lean her head into my face. Once I dropped a bagel onto my laptop and she licked the cream cheese from the keyboard, which saved me some of the pain of cleaning it up lol. She really made me feel loved. It makes me really sad knowing that the next time I come home, she won't be there anymore. I don't think I could get another cat for a long time.

one of the kittens outside my house showed up today and there’s things in his face covering his eyes and mouth I tried wiping it off a little bit it looks like a mixture of blood and puke but it won’t go away and he’s also coughing up really badly Idk what to do the vet is closed on weekends is there anything I can do to help him

this is what I would do to get the stuff off its face. use a wet paper towel just as a vehicle to get some moisture onto its face to soften everything up, lightly press or wring it onto what parts you can without getting water in the kitten's nose. don't press on its eye area just wring some drops over it. then for the actual work of getting it off use q-tips as a tool. work lightly, it will seem like you aren't making any progress but once you get through the hardest outer layer it will come off more easily. finish an area as best you can before moving on to another.

I just took in a senior stray cat. He loves being held and pet, and purrs and meows all the time. He is so sweet. He's skin and bones though, and very old. I couldn't leave him outside in the cold like that so I decided fuck it, he's my cat now. I bought him a bunch of stuff and I hope he likes his new bed. Until it comes in I gave him an old shirt and he immediately curled up on it and started purring. I wanna cry just looking at him. He's so cute. I'm bringing him to a vet school this week to get blood tests done to make sure he's okay. Can't believe this little old man has been outside for this long. Luckily he knows how to use a litter box… Kind of. He must've been someones at some point. He needs some TLC and I can't wait to give him a warm loving home

I hate living in a studio. I want my cat to have more space and freedom. I try and play with him for 30 minutes a day but I’m realizing how it’s actually taking bonding time away from him. I’m just checking off playing with him on a todo list and I see how he gets bored or frustrated too. I think I have to put aside a day or two a week just to be with him and be in the moment. I’m always occupied with other thoughts and I’m treating him like he’s not my #1 and he is. Maybe I’m just projecting emotions onto him but I can tell when he’s fed up with me not paying attention to him and it makes me guilty…

Hi nonas! Is there anything youd recommend for anything to make my cat's coat shiny and soft? We tried raw food back then and it really helped for his furcoat but we had to stop due to how expensive it was. Is there any supplements or new cat food i can give to him? Hes currently eating whiskas

Used to work with cats and sometimes just adding fish oil from fish oil capsules to their food helped. It also helps them with hairballs because the oil slides everything out and can help hair growth incase they have little bald spots. Just don’t go crazy with feeding them oil everyday for every meal it can cause your cat to leak oil from their anal glands and butt

>>1419774
I would give one dose of fish oil from a capsule in their food once every four days. Since you’re incorporating oils in their food its better to have that waiting period, too much fish oil all at once can cause your cat to become constipated. Another sign of a build up of too much fish oil would be when your cat starts to have overly greasy hair and greasy stools. You can have a break period of a month if you notice it’s getting too much and start it again when they’ve completely gotten all the built up oil out of their system. Alot of the time when it comes to giving supplements to cats its just observing and trying to find a good balance since you have to take alot into account. Hope this helps nonna!

I want to help ease the anxieties of a cat of a man I'm dating. She isn't very trusting but she's started to sleep beside me when I stay over but noticed she overgrooms a lot and has taken the hair off the inside of her back legs. I'm wondering if it's cause she's an indoor cat and the guy tells me he never has guests over and hasn't dated since having the cat. Is there like enrichment toys that she can groom

No. 1419842

>>1419823
Maybe you play with the cat until it gets tired so it doesn’t have energy to groom itself too much. If the cat still continues overgrooming you can try to get closer to the cat by giving treats and making your presence a good thing and make a space where the cat can also get away from you so it won’t be overwhelmed. Cats just get anxious easily when anything new happens so sometimes leaving a jacket that smells like you can help.

Got a question. Everytime i see videos from cat shelters in America. The cats are in small cages. Now are they there just to quarantine or display to people who want top adopt them or are they in the cagers all the time? Do they have like an aviary or a room they get let out?

It's a thing in Europe too, probably cost related, slightly easier to monitor health and afraid of territorial behavior. The one I worked at though, usually only closed the cages in quarantine. The ones in the living area would always be kept open like cat apartments (each having a bed, and their own litterbox) and they could walk around two fake very big living rooms and an outside catio. The cats with FIV were kept separate in a third living room, without cat apartments. It's weird how cats can be pretty territorial when living in someone's home, but we could have 30 cats in one area living together peacefully, partially because of having elder kitties demanding respect and setting the example. Better shelters do look down on the old school always keeping cats in cages shelters.

cat shelters are going to vary a bit, my experience is the U.S. south. The cat cages are common at both kill shelters and at rescues to keep the cats separate. At rescues this may be done to determine the cats health, caution if they're contagious with one of many cat diseases, or to not stress them out from being with other cats. If you mean why aren't the cages bigger, the ideal is for them to be adopted quickly and the cage is easier to clean in the meantime. On the administrative side, you can house more cats away from kill shelters with 28 small cages vs 14 medium size ones. It comes down to space, number one, because the goal is for them to be adopted quickly and that space can then be used to pull more cats from the kill shelters. short term stress vs euthanization of healthy cats. I've seen some cat rescues keep longer-term residents that aren't sick and friendly together in what are basically small to medium sized rooms together. One facility I went to actually tested for felv (uncommon where I was) and positivr cats had a small insulated warehouse for them to roam all together. That seemed tough to monitor tbh, but I guess the logic was these cats probably won't ever get adopted so let's make their life better than euthanization. another facility would let the cats out of the cages every day, a few at a time, for free roam. some rescues are just small non-profits run out of people's homes or a small office so those don't typically have cages at all since their vet work is done outside of the rescue. they might have some some emergencies but cats aren't in them.

Not sure if this belongs in this thread but I wanted somewhere to talk about it and my friends are probably already sick of hearing about it.
My cat ate a long ass piece of ribbon. I woke up to the sound of her hacking and I saw it hang out of her mouth, I tried to gently pull on it but it wasn't coming out so I cut it to prevent her eating any more of it. I rushed her to the vet and they asked me if I'd rather have them perform surgery on her or put her down (she's 16). I chose surgery cause it was the only option for me honestly, I could never forgive myself had I put her down due to a stupid piece of ribbon. They removed 55cms of ribbon from her stomach. My mom speculated that she had swallowed the end of the ribbon and was then unable to throw it up so she kept swallowing and swallowing it cause it was all she could do. The surgery ended up costing quite a lot but after posting about it on social media I received donations from friends, family and total strangers and I was able to pay off half of it right away. The other half I'm gonna have to pay in increments but that's okay. The cat is recovering very quickly, she's now 4 days post surgery and she already has her appetite back and she's jumping around and demanding pets just like she usually does. I love her so much and I hope she still has at least a good 5ish years still ahead of her. She's purring on my lap as I write this.

I wasn’t sure where else to say this but it puts a bad taste in my mouth that a cat hate thread was made. I understand where people are coming from from a wildlife perspective but plenty of wild animals have the same harmful habits. Firstly cat hate is just such a moid tendency because they cannot stand independent creatures, and cats are associated with femininity heavily. Secondly, cats are often killed and abused when out and about in the streets. To a heavy extent. Cat haters really hate cats to the point where they will kill them when they see them. Usually by poisoning them (it’s disturbingly common). I know it’s wrong of me to be upset by others opinions and something as small as making a thread but I love cats so much and it hurts me that in a female space like Lolcow that that exists.

I love my cat so much, he is big and gentle, very well behaved and a senior boy so he's always chilled out and isn't really a nuisance. I try my best to take care of him the best that I can, got pet insurance for him and I feed him really good wet food and even add water to it because I know he might have urinary problems as he's getting older. I hope he appreciates what I do for him, he is so cuddly and loves to spend time with me.

My old boy was put to sleep the other day. I live across the world so I haven’t seen him much in the last 3 years and that makes me feel terrible. I really hope he remembered me when my mom told him everyone loved him and he was a good boy…I did visit home last Christmas and said goodbye then because I knew he wouldn’t make it til I could come home again. Today (Christmas Day) is the first day in like a week I didn’t wake up and all-out cry but still this is the first major grief I’ve ever felt and I’ve never been more sad in my life. He was with me for half my life and that chapter closing has been hard to accept. But I have so many good memories of him and will never forget how soft and cuddly and cute he was, I’m confident. So time will dry the tears.

I just want to show him. It helps me. Look how cute he was! He had kinda crinkly looking fur and no top coat so he didn’t shed or need brushed at all. I’ve never seen another cat with fur like it.

I've been going back and forth on adopting a cat for a long while already; used to have a cat few years ago but he belonged to my ex and when we parted ways I obviously couldn't take him.
Recently I've ran into an ad of someone looking to give up their two cats for some personal reasons, one 6 years old and another 12; I was thinking to adopt an older cat anyway but I wonder if anyone has an experience of adopting a cat who used to have a loving home it was attached to for so long? Because it's surely different than adopting an older cat from a shelter where it probably wouldn't be as, idk, individually cared for…
When it comes to adopting two cats in general I imagine it would be a good idea so they can keep each other company when I'm at work; and in the initial weeks of cats getting used to me and my place I could work from home to be with them; financially I can afford it and there's a vet just 5 minutes away. All of these aspects are not a concern, I'm just wondering if any of you anons have any experience with taking a cat from someone else and could give me any insight on that?

Sorry if this is too sad for the thread but I lost my cat over a year ago, and I still have trouble talking about her. While she passed peacefully in her sleep, due to some other irl things happening at the same time it ended up being somewhat traumatic. Unfortunately I feel like a whole retard saying that it kinda traumatized me.
Does anyone know a nice way to cope or remember your cat? I feel like it could help me a lot.

I am a huge advocate for people adopting cats in pairs! It's actually less work to adopt two at once instead of just one cat. Especially if they're a bonded pair - it's cruel to split them up.
People don't realise that cats are actually really social animals and really do need the stimulation and interaction that comes with having another cat to be with.

As far as taking a cat from someone else, it might take the cat a while to warm up to you, but it might not. I got my younger boy almost two months ago from a person who was taking care of him and his siblings and she warned me that because they were technically still feral (she was the only human that had ever handled him) that it would take a while for him to warm up to me. He instantly bonded with me and my older boy, and now he follows me everywhere and has to copy everything my older boy does.
So you never know!

Cat's are very perceptive and can feel when someone truly cares for and loves them. Just show them all the kindness they deserve, and you'll have no trouble integrating them into your home if you are able to get them.

Not a cat but I lost my ferrets. I took their toys and beds (washed good) and a piece of their cage to make a hanging shelf thing for plants, with xmas lights on it, and their lil tubes and stuff hanging from underneath. Like a lil shrine with living things on it. I haave their cage pieces in the garage and use them for various projects. Im not ready to give those things up. I feel it has helped me see that their beloved things still have purpose, and seeing them used in other ways everyday (my plant/toy/lights hanging shelf is above my workspace) has helped me reassign meaning to those items- I know my babies wont poke their lil heads out of their fluffy beds but I still see them everyday and know they lived a good cute life..and I still hold them close in my own way. Idk maybe repurposing something of your cat's will help. Or a place he always slept, make it a reading spot you visit frequently or something. I am so sorry for your loss. It really does hurt. Deep.

blog time, listen to the tale of two kitties my sweet nonnas
younger kitty was the cat my mother insisted i get when i moved back home after dropping out of art school for the second time. she was the tiniest kitten in a room with dozens and dozens of them, but everytime one of the others hipchecked her runty ass across the floor she'd scramble back for more. the second i entered the space she beamed over and climbed up to my shoulder like a squirrel. im grateful my mom sensed i needed a companion, because for the last six years shes been my little shadow. friendliest cat ive ever had, with an enormous personality. insatiably affectionate. my friends love her.
my second cat is older, and was originally my mother's cat. shes beautiful, with unique markings, which is why mom took her home, but she had health problems from the jump. this led to her growing into a deeply anxious, sensitive cat. you name a cat issue, shes got it: territorial, scared of sudden movements and almost all people, going outside the litter box when stressed, deeply attached to routine. she even has to eat out of a special flat bowl, because her whiskers are too sensitive to touch the sides of a conventional one. but she loved one person in the world, my mom, and she loved my cat. they pair bonded after weeks of my annoying runt bothering her constantly, undeterred by the older cat hissing and running away. eventually they became best friends.
when i finally overcame my bullshit, got my degree, and got my own place, i couldn't stand to separate them. and with my mom getting a dog, older kitty no longer had access to my mom or any of her safe places. i asked if i could take them both, fully expecting that id never see much of older kit and that this was going to be a charity project for the benefit of young kit.
it was hard for a while, even though when she thought i was down for the night older kitty would go right back to calling for the younger, and frolicking around the house together. i thought thatd be enough. but slowly, slowly, and then all at once i made soo much progress with the older cat. she loves to cuddle and play with me now, and only me. she comes down from her room (that also just happens to be mine) to get me for bed so we can spend time together. so i have my shadow, and my little bedtime buddy. im tearing up petting her right now because i was so worried she would be miserable, but both cats love my place as much as i do.

My cat brings joy to my life. Lately I've been putting on bandages on my face to keep from picking at my acne and it's clear he notices there's something on me that usually isn't there.

I feel weird because there's cat people who claim you should never make your cat vaguely uncomfortable, but my cat, even though I am rough and cuddly with her, she always comes to me and cuddles me out of her own accord compared to my boyfriend or other people, and I sleep with my boyfriend every night. If I do stress her out, I can't imagine it's actually upsetting her because she always eventually in a given day wants to hang out and kiss and cuddle? And it's not food related. My boyfriend is extremely gentle and she does like him, but she always comes to me, so I assume that even though I pick her up and cuddle when she doesn't want me to that she still likes me. Is it possible cats can develop a sort of Stockholm syndrome?

No. 1475006

Moved into a new apartment and my cats were stressing out so bad the first two days.
My little girl was doing so well in the car with me, I didn't have her in a kennel, she just sat on the middle console rubbing herself on my arm and purring so loud.
My little boy was in my boyfriend's car also not kenneled and he started screaming as soon as he poked his head up and saw the moving lights as he was driving.
I felt so bad for my girl when we were bringing stuff in, she was looking from on top of the stairs and giving me the look each time I glanced over at her. My boy was so curious and he wanted to explore and figure out where he can climb. Now they're getting settled and they're so happy realizing this is a bigger space for them to live in. They love the soft carpeting in this new place.

I don't get the impression that he is uncomfortable with it, he even purrs and leans his head back because he knows he also get a lot of cuddles when I do it and he's a real snugglebug!
But keep in mind with any and all types if animal owners there will be ones that will call you an abuser if you don't treat your animal like it's made of glass. I saw a compilation a couple of years ago of a tiktok challenge where you would act as if you were gonna pet your animal but stop just a couple of inches above to see how they'd react, and of course bucketloads of people called it abuse. So I usually take things with a grain of salt and mostly listen to these people when it comes to necessities like food, treats and sand because they usually know what to avoid, but for everything else I read and listen to my cat's responses.

Cats aren't these delicate mental ticking time bombs that some people seem to think they are. Think about the way that cats interact with each other, the way that a mom will grab her kitten and pull it close to bathe it or carry it around by the nape of its neck. Or the way cats rough play with each other. The way you're interacting with her is another form of affection and she's emotionally intelligent enough to recognize that. You're basically her mom after all! I pick up and snuggle and smooch my cat all the time and he definitely can get annoyed but when I put him down he walks right back over to me to get some more snuggles.

No. 1475027

>>1474996
Every cat has a different personality and history. The not making them uncomfortable thing is more in response to people claiming they are constantly bitten and clawed by a cat and have no idea why or make up weird theories where their cat is an evil plotter. Then you see they happen to be pretty rough with them and the cat personally obviously doesn't like it. Or they allow the cat to play with their hand and are then surprised that the cat will treat it like a toy. There's also this thing where some cats are more sensitive than others to static and if they are pet too often, they end up being given a shock and they can "lash out" because of it. Which makes people call the cat unpredictable or mean, but you generally can predict it if you actually watch the tail. It's not that every cat is dealing with that and some are absolute snugglers, but just because another cat isn't a snuggler (all the time), doesn't mean they're "bad" or trying to be mean.

Gave my kitten a bath because the demented asshole just won't stop playing in the litter box (apparently it's a common phase among kittens, so at least he isn't brain damaged) so he has started to stink, and since he loves to be up in my face when cuddling and sleeps right next to my head at night I get the enjoyment of having his fur up in my nose most of the time.
Pros:
>he took it like a champ with just a little bit of whining

sorry i’m so late but whoever chopped this comic in half is a sadist.
Cats definitely remember their owners. We caught an absolute tank of a cat that was breaking into our workshop at night and terrorising our cat. Reunited him with his owner via microchip and that terrifying 12kg unit of fury and spite instantly turned into butter in her arms. He’d got lost after she’d moved house nearly five years earlier and she never thought she’d see him again. It was really moving.

My kitty is a very pale vanilla orange color. He has white whiskers, but lately he has been shedding some and they are growing back black. I’m a little sad because if all his whiskers turn black he will look kinda weird with his coloring.

Nonnies do any of you have a cat that licks plastic? My cat loves to lick some plastics like the laundry basket, the outside of specific chip bags, and his favourite is the plastic tray for underneath my plants.

Rn holding in tears while listening to my cat cry behind my bedroom door. Our two cats really would like to sleep with me but the little devils wake me up for food in the middle of the night and then I can’t sleep again after that. Idk what to do, I feel so awful. They sleep together in the warmest room we have on a soft blanket I put there, but I think they would prefer my bed.

I always thought my cat would do this but after a while of allowing him in my bedroom at night he stopped bothering me completely. He wakes me up in the morning for food but it's a good 9 hours after I last fed him. Maybe the cats can get used to your routine. I also was a freakishly light sleeper who once I woke would never sleep again, but I somehow seemed to get used to my cat also. I'm not sure how usual this is.

my cats can't sleep in my room because i have a mild allergy, but they got over it. i just store their loud toys downstairs and they don't bother me much until they know i'm up.

They get used to it and stop bothering you except in the morning in my experience. It's kind of nice, they will always wake up you up on time.

whenever I'm bored I go look at cats up for adoption/sale to cheer me up and they're usually pretty cute but oh my god.. this cat. He literally stole my heart I haven't been able to stop thinking about him for days everything the tongue and the cheeks makes me want to cry he's so perfect but he's so expensive too

My cat: Shows every sign of being happy; tail straight up, social, curious, eats without being stressed, sleeps belly up, greets me at the door, comes whenever I call for him, sleep right next to me at night, grooms me and is a real snugglebug.
Me: "But IS he happy though?"

I love sleeping with my cat but he tends to wake me up at 5am, I kick him out of my room and manage to fall back asleep but I still feel tired. When I try to get a full night's sleep I close my door but I can hear him whining outside and throw himself against the door and it's making me feel so bad lol.

My cat always wiggles base of her tail when I'm on a toilet or getting up out of bed. It's like a little weird twerk motion. I read it might be something like spraying, but luckily nothing comes out, lol. She also loves to bring me her toys to throw so she could run after them! So cute! Or like, she always comes to me when i cry (or sing kek) to console me. Fuck them people who say that cats don't love their owners, that's such a bullshit!

I love my cat so much, we have had to move a lot and be in a lot of scary temporary living situations over the past year —including one with lots of big dogs waiting outside our room and barking — but instead of being anxious/traumatized like most cats rightfully would be, he knows that wherever I am he is safe. The only time he ever got depressed and would hide, not eat, not groom was when I had to leave him in a cat hotel for a few days. Now we are both headed to our forever home, I am so glad I can give him a stable life now and we didn’t have to get split up!

Take him home, I'm sure he's waiting eagerly for you.

When my cat hears me and my husband arguing he always runs up to us and start lightly biting both of us so that we calm down because he doesn't want to see either upset. It always makes us lower our tone of voice and helps out focusing on talking about what's wrong rather than shouting. I love our little fluffer.

When you say hi to a cat and their tail goes ! like they're greeting you back, fills me with joy every time. Only one of my cats does the audible "mrrp" greeting when I say hi, the other one is completely silent but her tail goes straight up whenever she hears my voice. Makes me feel loved

Why would you get an expensive purebred cat when there are so many on the streets, cold, starving, and desperate for a loving home? Lmao just walk outside and you'll be sure to find one. I couldn't be caught dead supporting the breeding industry.

Dog breeders are often cooky assholes. Cat Breeders are another level of fucking insane. I love cats but I swear they can bring out the fucking mental issues in those who breed them. I sort of get it, cats get mistreated but if they cared about cats so damn much, idk, they could foster them instead?

Don't worry I was just looking just because they're cute
And you're completely right honestly street cats might not be as elegant looking as a british shorthair, but I love stray cats the most I fostered three in my neighborhood who were in bad conditions and after recovery they become the most affectionate and sweet creatures ever

How does your fuzzy little terrorists wake you up in the morning? Do they just yell or are they more on the inventive side? Mine does it by:
- Pressing his cheek against mine
- Falling over on my face so I choke on his fur
- Crawling under my arm demanding hugs/cuddles
- Licking my chin
- Licking my ARMPIT
- LICKING MY EYELIDS
- Attacking a nipple(usually the right one)
- Using me as a balancing board
- Pushing his nose into one of my nostrils
- Stomping and jumping around in bed
Sometimes it’s two or three of these, sometimes it’s all of them in no specific order

Usually I wake up before my cat and since she is sleeping on my legs, I have to be the one waking her up. But when she is the one waking up earlier, she is:
- walking all over my boobs (she is heavy af)
- attacking my feet
- smelling my mouth (why)
- opens up cabinets loudly
- drags her bowl around loudly
- she also licks my armpit/chin
- or just sits and stares at me until i feel shame and get up to feed her
