Hi Scooter,
Thanks for the suggestion about the treats. HQ suggested the same thing, but it doesn't seem to work for this particular problem. I can't be in every page every day. I have over 100 of them. Refreshing the browser has helped with only one cat making the request, but with multiple cats on both sides of the request, that doesn't work either. I gave HQ a specific case to look at. The other person has 54 pages and I have over 100. We tried several times and still didn't get them to work.

I have a very large family of cats. I have discovered that Catster is not cross posting all of the cats as it should. When someone asks to be friends with all of my cats, not all of my cats get the new friends when I accept the request and now I know that the other person probably doesn't get all of my cats either unless perhaps they only have one cat. Many times when I accept a request, I get the 'page not found' error before it completes the task. It always shows that the request has been accepted but I discovered that it wasn't working. I have tried refreshing the error page and that hasn't worked. I have written to Catster but they haven't come up with anything yet. Sometimes, only the first cat gets the friends. Sometimes, it's the first few. Surely I'm not the only one that this happens to. Has anybody found a way to correct it? Thanks, Karen

P.S. I would appreciate it if someone who is a member of Dogster would post this information there. I don't own a dog so I can't register there.

Dear Kitty Owners,
Dog and cat owners in Aurora, Colorado will find that there has been another fee increase when they license their animals in 2007. The cost of my cat licenses is still within reason, but that's only because I'm a senior citizen and all of my cats are neutered. There are legitimate hobbyists in our city who breed and show their pedigreed animals. The license fee for an intact animal is 10 times what you pay for a neutered animal. The owner of an intact animal has to pay $100 for an intact permit plus the $10 license fee. If a person happens to be a hobby breeder, they pay $200 for a litter permit. In other words, the City of Aurora wants to tax hobby breeders out of business. Small hobby breeders are still the best source of pedigreed pets. These folks raise their babies underfoot and the result is a well socialized pet. Large commercial breeders just put 2 animals together and say "go for it Fluffy". Hobby breeders spend many hours researching pedigrees and looking for the very best breeding stock to meet the goals of their program. They spend a lot of money testing their breeding animals in order to avoid genetic problems such as polycystic kidney disease in the Persian cat. Is the goal of the City of Aurora to have nothing left but random bred animals? Hobby breeders don't make a profit on the sale of their pet puppies and kittens. They don't break even in most cases and there is a limit to what they can lay out to support their hobby. I am not a breeder, but I feel that the fees being charged to these people is extremely discriminatory and punitive. If you are of the same opinion, please join me in emailing the members of the Aurora City Council and expressing that opinion. I have copied the fee schedule below for your information.
Thank you,
Karen and the Furry multitude

Animal Licenses
Aurora law requires that all dogs and cats over the age of six (6) months be licensed with the Animal Care Division. In addition, if the animal has not been spayed or neutered in accordance with City ordinances, an Intact Permit must also be purchased each year the animal is physically able to produce a litter of puppies or kittens.
Per City ordinance, license and rabies tags must both be attached to the animal at all times. Failure to comply may result in a summons and fine for the owner.
If a licensed veterinarian inoculated your dog or cat with a 3-year rabies vaccine, a 3-year City of Aurora Animal license and (if applicable) a 3-year Intact Permit may be purchased.

Cat Health > Ask for a ringworm test

There are many cases of occult fungus, especially in longhaired cats. Don't rely strictly on the black light to find ringworm. Not all of it is flourescent. There will probably be more cases of ringworm on cats from purebred catteries than on cats off the street. Some catteries never get rid of it because they won't stop breeding long enough to treat it properly. If one cat in a household is infected, you should consider them all infected whether or not they display symptoms.

I would also like to mention that many cases of cheyletiella and notoedric mange are misdiagnosed as ringworm because they can produce the same type of miliary dermatitis.

There are different things you can try. You can try different litter material. Most cats prefer a fine unscented scoopable. You could try different litter boxes. Some cats like open boxes, some like covered. Do you have enough litter boxes? Does the cat use the box when it's confined and has the box to itself? There are some cats that will not share a toilet with others. My Mother had a fussy old cat that wouldn't even share with herself. If she went to use the box and her previous deposit had not been removed, she would go on the floor beside the box. Location of the box could be a problem. Has the cat been ambushed by another cat when using the box? Cleanliness of the box can be an issue with some cats. Others will wade in feces up to their knees and don't care. These are just a few things for you to think about if there is no medical issue.
