  • I know the origination of the term 'scaredy cat' after observing my two scaredy cats.

    Annie's very smart and a pretty darned well behave cat despite enjoying a good craze session now and then.   But there are a few things she does to test me.  Two of them involve getting behind things where there are wires to be messed with.  I finally figured out a humane way to deal with that without having to use a spray bottle-- don't need that on electrical wires!  I just barely spit at her.  Just the tiniest little ptttut.  Enough to let her know I mean business.  She gets the message and hops out of the way, no foul, no harm.

    Stupid cats.

    Our cords have taken a beating. We got Mika to stop gnawing on them, but Kieli still thinks they're kinda cool.

    You're a better man than me- I not only spray Kieli... I chase her down a bit more and give her a couple extra squeezes. She knows right away- she lets out this hilarious chirp and starts dashing away as soon as I make a move for the spray bottle. I get her good. I sit back down. In about a minute or two... she comes back in licking the water of herself and proceeds to torment us again lol.

    I love her.

    I'm feeling a whole new level of appreciation for my cat. She never does anything like that. Doesn't chew on anything, doesn't fuck with anything she shouldn't, doesn't scratch the furniture, nothing. I've never used a spray bottle on her in her whole life because she's never done anything to warrant it, not even as a kitten. My biggest complaint about my cat is that she's overly affectionate. :lol:

    My sister sent me these two links today... I never realized Freddy Mercury was such a huge cat fan!



    Second link Delilah is song dedicated to his favorite cat Delilah. Why was this not one of their greatest hits??!  Ha ha!

    I recall reading that about him.  Many of my favorite artists were cat lovers - even Dali, who collaborated on the throwing of cats and water for Dali Atomicus.

    I'm not sure, Thirty - we rescued her (vice versa, really) from the shelter after she'd been found on the streets.  She's earned her dues to have that haughty puss!

    Kali is losing a lot of weight.  I took her in for her yearly check-up in April and the vet was concerned with her weight.  She was at 7 1/2 pounds when she weighed her.  I was pretty shocked cause I thought she was about 12 pounds or so.  She was always bigger than Willow.  You can see where her hips would be (back legs) are kinda caved in.  She eats, drinks and goes to the bathroom normally.  So i told her i would keep an eye on her weight.  She stayed the same for about a month or two.  Then within the past week I noticed it alot and decided to weigh her.  She was under 7 pounds now.  I made an appointment for her on Monday night.  Hoping it's not too bad and manageable.
    she has diabetes :disappointed:


    took Kali to the vet on Saturday for her glucose and her glucose count was low at 40 (not quite sure what the count means though, might be good?). Doctor wants me to go back this Saturday to double check. There's a possibility she might not have it anymore so that's good. She's maintained her weight now which has been ranging from 10 1/2-11 pounds which isn't too bad. We'll see. :smile:

  • Mika and Kieli curl up between my legs each night to sleep. Sometimes I feel the need to move, but I don’t want to disturb them so I lie there and make the best of my uncomfortable situation.

    Last night the bed was shaking. I woke up and they were having a massive sibling scrap between my legs. I yelled, “Hey. That’s enough!”

    They both leaped off the bed and took off out of the room. My daughter informed me they made it into her room and picked up where they left off.

    But aside from their occasional spats... they love each other:

    I'm loathe to go to bed until they've gotten their ya-ya's out.  Nothing like being on the edge of sleep than two cats scrapping it out on the covers over me.

    Good to know we're not the only ones with the 'scrapping problem'!

    My cats are like dogs.  They come and greet me at the door.  It's hysterical.  Daddy's home!!!

    The male cat Zappa waits for me to put my keys down and expects me to go to the  bedroom and play with him.  Creature of habit, lol.

    The female cat Zoe has her time to get attention from me too.  Whenever I put socks or shoes on that is her time to come over and get some scratching in.  She also comes by my side when I am on the couch and looks up at me until I acknowledge her.  When I look at her she whips into a scent rubbing frenzy and won't stop until I give her a good scratch.
