Some of TC playing with his mouse toy:
Will have to get some slow motion goodness soon
I want another kitten now!
For someone who had his balls chopped off on Friday, Winston sure is bounding around the flat without a care in the world!
Dave was exactly the same, as was Lola to be fair. Keep them calm they said, both were doing laps of the flat the same day!
Went out and left both of them during the day with the cat flap open yesterday for the first time. Was only gone a couple of hours, came home to find Lola sat on the doorstep and Dave in the house!
Contemplating leaving the flap open all day tomorrow when I go to work. I just worry about them. Someone reassure me they'll be fine for 8 hours?
LOL, the return from the vets for the big chop:
1. Kitten will be sleepy, this can be expected
2. Kitten probably wont want much fuss when he gets back
3. Kitten may not have a big appetite, don't worry about this
So Qyzen gets home after his operation and spends the next 2-3 hours running around, playing and showing absolutely no sign of wanting to rest or sleep. Fuss, if he didn't get any he's squeak until he got some.
First task once he's out of his carrier...food. Then meow until we've re-filled the food. Fresh boiled chicken is apparently good for them after the operation. Small amounts when he wants some. He wants some all the time!
Bless him, somebody should have told him the rules of post-op for cats.
The meds given during the op can cause an upset stomach. Boiled chicken with a small portion of rice is good for them if you let the rice soak up the water with all the chickens goodness in.
Guys anyway of tracking a cats wherabouts in the evenings? one of my cats vanishes for ages and dispite calls is nowhere to be seen. problem is last night he didnt come back for dinner (really rare) and didnt moan about being fed, then this morning he started to gag as if he was gonna puke (but didnt) - he has suffered from an upset tummy and has special food to help him.
im concerned hes being fed elsewhere and its making him ill - is there a tracker or mini cam i can put on him thats discreet?
A few years ago someone attached a camera on to a cats neck and recorded what it did for a day (was on have I got news for you). You could do something like that, or just plaster your neighbourhood with leaflets of your cat saying he can't be fed regular cat food and if he's being friendly/dishonest about where he's from he needs this special brand or he throws up everywhere (with another picture of the cat looking sad).
Then sign it by the cat, most people will think thats cute.
For cat discipline, I found out the best trick when ours were young and started to try and scale our brand new hand made living rooms curtains...
Buy yourself a cheap kids water pistol. As they start the misbehave (has to be quick) then you shout NO and bust a cap in they misbehavin' ass. I had to use it less than a handful of times and they never did it again and I haven't had to gat them since.
The only issue is that you are forced to be packing heat constantly in the house, but it wasn't long before they learned long-term.
They haven't learned to not do it, they have just learned to do it when you aren't around.
thanks i had a look and the cameras are about £70, little out of my budget so will give that a miss for now and see what a happens.
they both have their pre-op check for the snip this Wednesday so hopefully after that hes a little less inquisitive and will stay around the house more. (one hopes)
Typical girl, loves handbags and washing baskets
My camera did strange things when I tried to take a pic of Snoopy in the box that our new steamer came in...
Edit: Its like one of those UFO conspiracy photo's
if this wasn't a cat thread i's think that was a kettle
How?!! Lol!?!? How is that a kettle?! I am intrigued now
lol okay proper pic:
ahhhh focus. hello pwutty kwat
I wonder if cat's dream? Which I believe they do. When my cat sleeps sometimes it will meow a couple of times.
