RIP THURSTON WAFFLES
YOU WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED
I'm so happy for u Nona.
My cat has been gone for a month now and I'm hoping he comes back to me one day. My vet said he might just pop back up one day and I really hope so.
My cat is back with me and when I opened the transport box and talked to her she remembered me and greet me with a happy meow and started cuddling like crazy! Made me so happy. >>1341043
Same cat ran away and I lost all hopes because it was extremely cold and she is an indoor cat. After two weeks I heard her at the front door. I wish you all the luck that kitty comes back nona

Why are cats so perfect, nonnies? I love them so so so much, they're such perfect little beings I hate how underappreciated they are and how much people dislike them for having boundaries and for typically demanding respect/not giving affection without reciprocation by default

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.

Will do! That's actually my arm lol, he is around 8 months old so he's not a baby anymore, but he has big ears and a long tail, maybe he'll be huge when he's done growing up.

The back of a cats ear, right at the base, is the softest fur on a cats body. Even softer than the tummy, I swear! Go check your kitty right now, it's like silk.
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.
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.

Or taking a nap with my cat curled up next to me. Or talking with my cat by meowing back at him. Or giving my cat catnip and watching him spaz out. You get the picture.

You’re fucking retarded. Your cat’s in heat, dumbass. Make an appointment to get her fixed so she can live a happier, longer, healthier life. Fixing your pets is the most basic fucking responsibility you have as a pet parent besides food/water/shelter.
You’re a dumbass retard and you should feel bad for being such an idiot.
What is the moral hang up you have about getting your cat fixed nonnie
? Fixed indoor cats live long healthy lives. If you’re letting her outside (quick note: the life expectancy of an outdoor cat is 2-5years) then she especially needs to be fixed.
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.
Anyway I know you're probably going to have some strong feelings about this (and that's fine) but I'm not looking to start an infight about this subject so I'll leave it at this.
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 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.
Fr, she has to eat prescription food for bladder crystals and it bleeeeds me dry. Not to mention all of the grooming tools on hand. She's worth it tho >>1403378

File: 1668124712810.png (4.13 MB, 1688x1298, kittykitty.png)
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.

i'm so sorry, nonna… i lost my angel too, last month, she was 16. she used to wake me up almost every single morning since i was a child, and we went through so many adventures together…
File: 1668126778944.jpg (1.34 MB, 3005x2304, IMG_20210220_220752.jpg)
luckily i still have my other baby to keep me going! she's so precious…
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!

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.

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

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

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!

women have a bond with cats moids will never understand.
i lost my beautiful ginger boy miso this year who taught me so much, and after a few months we adopted my new lovely boy guts from a shelter (adopt dont shop!)
he loves boxes and will dive into them as soon as put them down, and really anything with an enclosed space. hes the most kitteny kitten ive ever met and whatever he can do he will.
cant retract his claws and he has huuge ones so when he attacks he goes for the kill, and bites too like i’m a mouse hes trying to rip apart. i dont care though, i’d give up the world for my little boy. enjoy photo of my baby
Aww, good kitty.>>1433082

Would you eat?
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.
Hope this autism helps and I didn't completely miss your point, kek
Thank you nonna. I’m in shock. Completely shocked.

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?
cats aren't very melancholic usually and especially a bonded duo will be great for each other! do it nonnie
, seems like a amazing idea!
File: 1672851855552.jpg (1.53 MB, 3024x4032, mytwoboys.jpg)
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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!

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.
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
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
