Meows and Purrs (http://www.meowsandpurrs.com/forum) - a new cat message board one of my friends started with me - is now on the Internet! Our intent is not to make you all stop posting here, but it is bigger, easier to use, and cuter and has more features than a lot of cat message boards I have seen. So if you want to join any other cat message boards, which would not cause you to stop posting here, you can check out MAP next week. It will be opened for registrations when it is completed.

Behavior & Training > Drinking from Paw?

So if I see an old cat playing with water I should worry about it? I hope not.

Back to the topic: Emily stopped drinking that way after she was declawed and purrmanently switched paws after her right leg was infected by an animal bite two years later. (In 1994, I did not know what declawing is. Her time outside was a window accident.) So I know cats will not do it when a paw hurts.

Scooter, what does kidney disease have to do with playing with water? I had 2 cats euthanized for that reason and neither of them ever played with water as they quit drinking it.

Emily drank from her paw most of her life. I know some other cats do that too and it is called "being silly." There are two causes I know about:

1. She hates the taste of water.
2. She wants to make sure water is there.

Senior Cats > Distressed and torn...

After my first cat died people told me euthanasia was "the hardest decision." Actually, that was NOT true. I knew the last time I saw her at home nothing I could do for her would make more sense. But when Wilbur was sick, it was very hard because of the timing: one week before moving to Florida, when I already was feeling a lot of stress. However, because I was given the chance to think and talk about it the second time, it was much easier to accept losing Wilbur than losing Emily.

The lesson here is the decision will be less difficult ("easier" is the wrong word here) if you DON'T think about it, but just wait until the cat's quality if life is gone, because at that point, the cat makes the decision for you to end its misery.

I like Koko for a black cat, but the name would be purrfect for a rumpy Manx. Koko said she wanted a tailless cat because she had no tail.

How do your cats get their names? Do you change names? Who names them?

Here are mine:

Emily: I wanted to choose the name before the cat so I picked girl name I like. It is unusual for a cat.
Patricia: Dad suggested Pat the Cat. My sister did not like that idea, so she said the full girl's name.
Wilbur: He came with this name and I love it. I do not know why the shelter picked that one, but who cares?

Belle, conCATulations on your new kitty! big grin

Emily had a thing for boxes. She tried to get in a shoebox and Pepsi box. One picture I have of her is lying in the lid of a Pictionary box. She looked too squished to be comfortable in there.

But the king of box-loving cats is a Scottish Fold (with straight ears) named Maru. His Japanese parents love posting videos of him online.

American Shorthair > Confusion about fur coats

Emily

Purred: Tue May 15, '12 3:09pm PST 
My first two cats were not littermates, but their coat texture, weight, and shape were the same. Patricia has never had a problem with shedding excessively, but all year round Emily shed profusely. Sometimes I would see a big clump of fur on my hand while petting her. Emily also had a chronic vomiting habit that I never figured out, but it was not always hairballs. How could one of my cats shed a lot more than another with the same fur coat type?

American Shorthair > Is there such thing as American long hair?

You definitely have a longhaired cat.

No breed is called an American longhair. If a cat has many American shorthair features, it may not be any breed at all.
