Arrival Story:
My son called me telling me about a cat in Pet Smart he wanted us to adopt, a black smoke female that looked much like Ashley (a black smoke who crossed the bridge years ago) and Midnight (a small black longhair who crossed the bridge peacefully at 3:05 AM Tuesday, April 17, 2012 & whose profile I will soon put up on Catster). I agreed and the next day we drove to Pet Smart to adopt the cat. The cats in that particular Pet Smart are from a very dedicated hard-working small cat rescue group that rescues cats from very high kill shelters, gets all the necessary vet work done for them & then puts them up for adoption. I decided to adopt two cats so on 8-18-12 Farrah, the black smoke longhair female and Moose, a black shorthair male came home & joined my feline family.

Bio:
Farrah is an extremely sweet, quiet, loveable little cat. She gets along with the other cats, is clean in her litter pan habits, and is very well behaved. I don't know why anyone would ever dump a cat such as this in a shelter in the first place!

Farrah's Whispers


Murphy's Law

Farrah is one of those cats who is very allergic to fleas and who tends to rip her coat out when itching/scratching. Although like all my cats, she receives Advantage II flea drops every month during flea season, she still rips her coat out. You see, it only takes one flea bite to set off the itch/scratch cycle in an allergic cat and a flea must bite the cat to ingest the Advantage II flea killer. That is why cats who are susceptible to flea allergy still itch and scratch in spite of being treated with Advantage (or Revolution or other flea treatment which still works-fleas are resistant to the active ingredient in Frontline in most of the country). Steroids, which must be obtained from your vet, do help a lot with the itching and scratching and make a flea allergic cat much more comfortable. A cat who is flea allergic also due to the itch/scratch/lick/groom response to being bitten, often may not have any visible fleas on them because the cat ingests them whereas a cat who isn't allergic to fleas, if not flea treated regularly, may become so laden with fleas that the fleas become life-threatening. A huge load of fleas can literally cause a cat to bleed to death. A cat who isn't allergic to fleas often has a nice full coat in spite of the fleas, which may cause the owner to fail to realize the cat even has a flea problem.

It can take a long time for a cat to come into full coat, especially if that cat is one who is allergic to fleas. Farrah is one of those cats who rips her coat out during flea season and who also takes a long time to come into full coat. Thus, just as flea season takes hold, Farrah is now in full coat. She is a beautiful smoke cat with an elegant coat standing off from her body.

As Murphy's Law would have it, Farrah's coat is at its most gorgeous just in time for flea season. No sooner than her coat is at its most luxuriant and profuse, here come the %#@% fleas!

Is anyone else having problems with uploading photos? I haven't been able to get a photo to upload for weeks now.
You can see Farrah's newest photo on my facebook page:

Even there, Murphy's Law struck again. For some reason Facebook posted her pic SIDEWAYS!

 

Newcomers Smokey & Boots

Over the past several months, too many of our family members have had to answer the call of the Rainbow Bridge. However, just when it seemed our family was due to remain smaller, another call came. This call came from the relatives of a friend of a friend of Mom's, via Mom's friend. "Can you take in two cats?" my friend asked Mom. "Why?" Mom asked.

The friend answered, "the relatives want rid of their cats now and they're going to take the cats to animal control. Now this happened at the time that the Indianapolis Animal Control was euthanizing all their cats due to an outbreak of panleukopenia at that facility. Mom's friend reminded her friend that the cats would get euthanized. The reply was that the relatives didn't care, they just wanted rid of the cats.

The cats in question were a blue and white longhair named Smokey and a black and white "tuxedo" pattern longhair named Boots. Not wanting to see the cats end up dead for no good reason, Mom agreed to take the two cats. Thus it was that the big cat cage in the living room didn't stay empty for long! During the past two weeks, Smokey and Boots have been getting acquainted with the rest of us through the bars of their cage. Smokey and Boots have been here two weeks now, are pretty friendly with us through the bars of their cage with no hissing, so tonight for the first time, Mom will let them explore part of the house as part of the process of letting them get used to being loose in the house. Mom will put them on Catster once they have become confident enough that Mom can take good pictures of them.

 

Family Whispers

Now you've heard it said "I heard it through the grapevine" but in this case we say, "I heard it through the nip vine." Now nip stands for catnip and I know catnip doesn't grow on a vine. But I really wanted to make this rhyme.

Now don't say I'm a gossip, because what I tell is true. I'm dishing all the dirt on my family to you. Well, not all of it...gotta save some for another entry...a bit of suspense for my readers, you see.

Uno is kinda naked on the bottom half of her body and legs. She has psychogenic alopecia (the vet said probably because she's been stressed out with Mom's surgery and everything involved). Uno also likes to steal dog food out of the dog food bag.

Lucy Liu is back in kitty jail again and back on steroids again because of bad diarrhea again. She stays in good condition in spite of it though. The vet doesn't know what causes it but at least it responds to steroids.

Gyselle likes to duck her head under the running faucet and lets the water run down her face. Moose just likes to drink from the faucet.

Dova is the computer geek of the family. He's always trying to mess with the laptop.

Speaking of Dova, I heard Dova, Moo, and Jag are going to get neutered soon, probably within the next week or so.

Destiny's nickname is Mouth and she still hasn't learned what shut up or quiet means. At least she's careful not to step on us when we get in her way.

A backhanded compliment, Mom says some of us who had flea allergy look like cats again now our coats have grown back. She said that includes me. I tried to tell her I was just trying out a new hairstyle.

That's all for now. Thanks for reading. And to whoever whispered, "Gossip queen" at me, I'll get you back next time I write!
