Thread: hey cat people

    How wonderful it is to read a Jody update that's 100 percent good news -- okay, 98 percent good news if you factor in the porn residue that's oozing in.

    I'm so happy Jack's got no long term problems, and even happier for him and you that his short-term infection issues are fading away. It must be such a relief to not have to worry about him charging in to pee all over your bed. It would have been better to have your new washer and dryer there while that was going on, of course, but having them at all is life changing. Trudging to the laundromat sucks rocks.

    I think sjean is on to something re: your shelter work. It sounds to me like the things you're going to be doing are all services that don't have to be done on a fixed schedule, so I think the chances that you could work out a flex time job arrangement once he sees what a treasure you are. He sounds like a very understanding, caring guy -- show him what good things you bring that benefit the critters and him, and I think he'll be more than willing to work with you.
    It is easier to find men who will volunteer to die, than to find those who are willing to endure pain with patience.

    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    thanx thehipcrip, and I am sorry if I have been bringing you down with my bad luck recently. I actually dont even share a lot of stuff with care cure. I guess I should share even less. I will keep it in mind to be aware that sort of thing.

    I wont be letting him in my bedroom for a long long time. once I can afford a mattress again. I will not take a chance of him ruining it. I am going to put on a waterproof cover though, which I should have done in the first place. I really miss sleeping with my kitty cats.
    does any body else brush their kittys teeth? jack will not allow it right now, he wants to go for his walk too but will not allow me to put on his harness. does anyone shave their kitty's butt? jack is not letting me do anything with him right now, and the vet is thinking part of his problem is that he has not been given his hygine clip. vet did not say if it was the food or litter that might be causing allergy. He has been pulling hair off his back and at the base of his tail. his recent kitty acne is looking better too.

    No no no, sweetie, that's not at all what I meant -- just the opposite, in fact!!! What I was trying to say is that you've had far more than your share of bad stuff and deserve more days like today when things go right.

    Sharing your troubles doesn't bring me down, Jody, not at all -- it makes me feel good that you feel you have a safe place to come for support and help.

    PLEASE don't feel that you need to hold anything back or let my less than clear way of expressing myself affect your ability to talk with the many people who care about you here at CC. I'm so sorry about this -- I feel bad that I brought you down when what I hoped to do was celebrate your good day with you.

    I have "tried" to brush my cats teeth, try to take the visible tarter off, and leave the real cleaning to the vets. I do not clip my cats, but if they have a skin related issue, I am sure this would be a different story. It took me time to get my cats comfortable with the harness on.. a couple of my cats were just too frightened, my older cat just looked at me as if to say, "Okay...whatever..." Could it be parasites? If you used leaves as litter, possibly parasites came into the house from these leaves. Scratching at the base of the tail and pulling.... Has Jack had
    a bath? Cats hate this and I know I think I still have scars from one of my rescues where the towel got loose, but maybe the vet could help with this. Since Jack goes outside for walks (would love to see him), I would imagine he could pick up anything. It may not be food related, but a trial may help. My outdoor rescues were all given Ivermectin by my vet, an anti-parasitic paste (used for horses)... and this worked great.

    I only tried the leaves just to get a urine sample. I use regular tidy cat clumping litter for mutiple cats. he has been checked for worms mites and fleas also, none. jack does get bathed about once every couple of months when he gets his bottom shaved to prevent poop from getting caught in his long hair, and because he sometimes has trouble cleaning himself because he is rolly polly. all my cats are ok to bathe. each got a bath when I was able to move them from the house with all the cats. I think his problem is that last time I harnessed him and held him, He got a shot and was knocked out. now he does not trust me. I hope though he will want to go for a walk bad enough to get his harness on. that is how he learned to go on a leash in the first place. he wanted to go out but that was the only way I would allow. He did not behave that way after his surgery. He wore baby t shirts to protect his stitches and did not protest when I put them on. I got his fave snacks. I hope to intice him to behave with those. I am afraid to give him too much of anything until I figure out what he is allergic too though. Thanx for the reply med. I guess I have to just wait this out a bit longer until he puts his grudge aside. silly kitty.

    Yes, I know about the trust thing. But it is amazing what a little Fancy Feast does with my cats attitude towards me:-)
