Kitten Corner > Reverse Sewing Machiens


Hello Word!
Purred: Mon Nov 29, '10 1:21am PST 
I have quite a few kittens in my house right now. They are all different ages and were being given away for free. I was scared they would end up as dog bait (this is LA afterall), so I took every last little kitty home with me! All are under a year, so my cat, Tyrone, has many new baby brothers and sisters to play with. I was planning on rehoming them, but what's 7 more cats? laugh out loud Anyway, my kittens have taken to doing something very funny. I love to sew. I make clothes, curtains, doll dresses, etc. Well, the kittens have figured out that it is great fun to undo all the stitching in the fabric with their teeth! They don't play with the string, but just un-sew everything! laugh out loud I can't get mad at them. Any other kitties figured out how much fun this is?

Behavior & Training > Music Makes Cat Gag!?!

Hello Word!
Purred: Mon Nov 29, '10 1:16am PST 
I cannot put on music, EVER! Even if the music is on tv, I have to turn it off or mute it. Whenever Tyrone hears music, he gags. It sounds like he is going to throw up. What could cause him to act like this?

Hello Word!

What would be a good and SAFE cleaner to get rid of pawprints. I have tons of pawprints on our glass table tops, the tv, and the mirrors. Kittens are everywhere! laugh out loud I was going to use window cleaner, but I don't think it is safe for kitties. I don't want to poison my babies!frown

Cat Health > Sleepy Kitty


Hello Word!
Purred: Mon Nov 29, '10 12:44am PST 
Tyrone has been really sleepy lately. He usually is very playful, but not recently. He is still eating and using the litterbox, but is no longer interested in playing or jumping around like the goofball he is. He is only 1 year old.
