She likes wires
It keeps changing. She did have one for 5 months, but as of a week, she destroyed it by attempting to swallow.
Favorite Nap Spot:
next to me, doggie bed in the window, cat tunnel in the window, top floor on the cat condo
anything edible which isn't everything
swallowing non edible things and being quick to steal things off my plate.
All day today I heard a cat crying in and out of the house. I knew inside it was Patches, who isn't very affectionate. She wails out of nowhere lately, yet won't jump in my lap. Outside I thought it was my neighbors cat Teddy who is a tough Maine Coon. Around 4pm I get a phone call from my neighbor asking if one of my cats were outside. I tell her no and go outside to investigate. She looks like the cat that is in front of my house that won't let me pet her, but with orange splotches. I think that cat may be the mommy and the orange fluffy male I see in the backyard is the daddy. Brownie, stalks her as Stripe did her 7+yrs ago. As I meowed, she did the same and practically ran into my arms. Right now I'm deciding on a name btwn Buttercup or Sunflower.
A calico with mainly white fur with black and orange splotches.

A few days ago I captured a pic of Coffee & Stripe sleeping in the same window. Coffee growls when she senses him coming and neither of us trust him enough since he still beats her & Brownie up.
Yesterday I was noticing that Coffee Cake kept jerking herself awake as she tried to sleep as her head slowly fell. She prefers the Pyramid bed you see in pictures be flatten to death vs the Pyramind shape it's suppose to be. Everytime I've put it back thinking it was a fluke, 10 mins later I would turn around and see that it was flat again with her beating it up and chewing on it. I've since given up, even though Stripe prefers it the proper way, at least he can still sleep in the doggie bed right next to it.
After picking her up from the ASPCA truc, she wasn't as clumsy as I expected her to be for the last time I put her in a cone, she walked backwards and kept her head low. The cone they provided is smaller than I one I have so it seems to be working better or she just got used to it quicker. Which reminds me she wouldn't let me say "see you later" when she was put in the cage. She kept to herself in a corner and denied coming to the gate to greet me.
She is at home with green stitches/glue whatever it is. Waiting to see what changes she may make if any. From what I can tell she hasn't been in heat yet at the age of 7 months and she did stop her crazy nibbling as of a month ago. So I basically expect her to stay the same. I just have to get her used to being outside. She freaked when I opened the door today with her in the carrier. And yesterday while I walked my friend to the door while holding her.

It's because a Catster email that I bought my first cat condo due to Coffee Cake running every which way as if her butt was on fire. I just caught her trying to swallow a 12"+ string again. Someone mentioned pica, but I don't understand what pica has to do with string, yarn, chewing cardboard to her hearts content, wires. Oh right, you don't know the whole story yet. It's as if she's training to be a circus freak, Ala a sword swallower. A week ago I woke up to her throwing up. What color was it you ask. Red, bright red. Formerly belonging to the lump of yarn I left on the floor for them all to play with. No longer a toy for them. Now in a pile to restuff the cats bed. Weeks before that I discovered she chewed 2 out of 3 wires from my interactive mousepad. Since then I've been hiding the cord to my electric heater. I would be really pissed if that was gone. Turns out she has already started. Fortunately it's not that bad. Spring where are you? For a month now after I got my dial tone back, there has been static on my line. Verizon says there's something happening on my end and to check my wires. Told them it wasn't possible since it started a week after the dial tone returned. Not telling them I had a kitten with a weird appetite, but thinking to myself there's no access for her to get to the wires anyway. I've been holding off getting a repair done, trying to get to the root of it myself. Imagine my surprise today when I discovered that she's been nibbling on my phone wires after all!!! I'm lucky that the dial tone was Verizon's issue and not my fault. Overall this furball/termite/goat/shark/bunny is driving me bonkers. What fuels this habit? Is it genetic? I'm beginning to think this is why no one came looking for her when I found her. I can't do the same thing. I thought Brownie was bad, but compared to Coffee, she's minor, especially since she hasn't grown out of it and I think she's 8 now. Brownie would chew on paper, my hands, purse and magazines. Coffee chews on all that and whatever she can find, including rubber bands. Brownie calmed down a little when I bought her dog toys. They don't faze Coffee who ignores them after a second or two. One day I notice something isn't attractive to her. The next day it becomes edible. That's what happened with that string today. For months now she's been playing with the toy connected to that string. She would play fetch with it by herself ignoring me. Today she finally bit it in 2 pieces and attempted to swallow with the plastic connector still on. She was smart enough to remove the 3" toy however. Would spraying things with vinegar help, or do you have a better idea? My purse hasn't been that interesting to her, but I don't want to take any chances. She's worse than Stripe when she sees I have food in my hands. She becomes a big dog and insists it's her turn. She's only 5 months now. I hope she grows out of this. Oh and she finds Ariel to be the best toy. Is that normal since Ariel is the oldest at 11yrs? When Ariel is in the dome litter box, Coffee jumps on top to pet Ariel's head as it sticks out as if to say "Good job". I need to get pics of that. I'm usually too busy laughing as I watch. When Brownie came she wanted to play with Biscuit who wasn't receptive at first. I need to find more kittykickers. She loved that when I first introduced it to her. The others would use it as a pillow. Coffee deflated it in a day or 2. No more stuffing left.

I tried to give Coffee Cake meds for her diaherra 2 days ago and acted as if she was having a seizure. Tried to spray her mouth today to ensure good breath, she put up another fight, but I won when I used a towel wherein she gave me a evil look when done. Was suppose to spray at least twice, yet instructions say better at night before bed. So I'll do it again then tonight. Wasn't hard to open Ariels mouth. Coffee is ifne with her nails getting cut as long as I don't cut blood. Need to try brushing her teeth at least. Stripe loves it for the taste. He would lick the brush like a lollipop if I let him. Biscuit enjoyed it too, until she got too old.
