Post your cats!!! pic related. this is my little sisters fat cat charlie reclining in a sunbeam
This is my Abigail aka Abby Girl aka Flabby Abby
So there was a very young kitten in the road today, so I pulled over and took him home. I planned on giving him to a no-kill shelter, but they won't take him until Monday. He's very frightened and hisses and will try to scratch/bite me. I've put him in a large box with food and water and I plan on leaving him alone for a while.
What should I do to calm him? Id like to get him to where he isn't a vicious little asshole before I give him to the shelter on Monday/Tuesday.
Pic related, he's a little cutie. He has no tail though, what breed is he?
I love fatties, they're so adorable. Here's mine
He's probably a domestic stray kitten. Manx cats have no tail, but this one probably lost it. Just leave it in the box, maybe put him a towel or some soft rag inside. Try giving him food from your hand, maybe he won't be so defensive.
Found him at my boyfriend's parents' house, and he decided he wanted to keep him. Currently doing 3oz wet food/day and free access to dry.
My other cat doesn't seem to like him. He tries to keep his distance and hisses if the kitten gets close.
Here is my boy Midnight destroying my wife's loom
Here's Oliver, whenever I'm in the bathroom taking a shit or a showrler he scratches at the door to come in and roll around in the tub or lay at my feet while I'm on the toilet.
New little kitty, 3 months old, stay from the shelter.
I've had her for 5 days now and she's warming up, very playful, still a little antsy when it comes to petting though.
Pic related is nit, but does look very much like, my cat.
"Our" (We're looking after her, but I must admit we haven't heard shit from the original owners in some time) female, grey tabby cat, was making throaty noises earlier, like she had something bothering her throat. She stopped after a minute or two, but now she is making what sound like short, intense hissing noises. Any idea what could be up? All I can think of is hair ball blockage and it's got me worried sick. She's a sweet cat, and even though I don't consider her my own yet, I don't want her to suffer or be in pain, but it's fucking 3AM here. What am I supposed to do?
Forgot fucking pic. As a side note, my last cat got a blood clot and had to be put down. I don't want any of my further animal companions to die of anything so terrible.
This is my cat, /an/. She was in my RV today when it got towed away. I'm worried sick about her but I have to wait until the impound lot is open to try and get her back.
She's gone, /an/. Whoever towed my RV broke a window and she must have jumped out at some point. All I have left are pictures.
I don't know what to do with it, man
Legal action won't get my cat back, anon. I don't really care about the RV or any of my stuff at this point.
I'm checking all of the local shelters' websites for her regularly, and I'll do whatever I can to get her back if someone finds her.
I was thinking of starting a new thread but since there's a cat general up I'll ask here:
Do you guys have any recommended techniques or products for grooming a fat cat that can't clean its own butt very well?
I know the most obvious permanent solution is to make him lose weight, but unfortunately this is my roommate's cat and I don't control his diet. I just don't want him sitting all over my house with dried shit stuck to his butt.
Pic is not the actual cat but looks like him.
What coat pattern is this? It looks tabbyish but not quite?
She was my whole life, /an/.
I don't know what to do without her.
>just moved in with bf
>his ancient cat lives with him
>is incredibly pushy for attention all the time
>loud and annoying
I can honestly get past all of that, since she's so damn old and he loves her so much. Pets can be spoiled brats, whatever.
The one thing that drives me absolutely crazy, however, is that she never, EVER covers up her shit. It smells so bad when she takes a shit. It takes like, one second cat, why do you do this to me?
I've got a question, as someone who is more experienced in dogs. I know Orijen/Acana is top-notch dry food for dogs, but I've read that cats should eat wet food as a general rule.
What's the wet cat food equivalent of Orijen/Acana?
The reason for wet food support in the cat community is because its believed cats often don't hydrate themselves properly unless they can draw hydration from their food source. Personally I don't subscribe since in my cat's particular case, I monitor her water intake from her water bowl and she seems to drink from it enough regularly. I prefer dry food as a base for her diet with more occasional wet food because wet food diets are said to promote tooth decay.
Sorry that doesn't answer your question, I just wanted to throw my two cents in there.
I found her a couple years ago on the property of a house my cousin bought. The owner passed away and I assume he cared for her since she had a collar, but she was very thin and hungry. The vet guesstimated she was 2 or 3 at the time. Now she lives with me and is very loving/clingy. Drools all over my bed and cries for me when I'm in the shower or at the store.
Thanks for your input. I don't know, I have mixed feelings about it. I've never met a male cat that hasn't gotten FUS, though, which makes me inclined to believe there's at least some truth to the claim.
>leaving your cat unattended inside a car during summer
Guy, I want to feel sympathetic for you but I can't unless you're in the southern hemisphere. That shit kills animals, no wonder your window was broken.
Is "tabby calico" a proper term? I saw a kitten at PetSmart the other day and she was like a calico, but the dark spots were gray with dark stripes (like a tabby) instead of solid black.
I didn't think to get a picture and she's been adopted already, so I don't have a good visual.
This is my cat. He is an asshole. If what >>2147642 says is true, then his coat is the pattern for assholes.
In this picture he is on his hoard.
This was my cat. She was only 4 years old and was euthanize this morning becaue she had huge cardiac and renal problem. I miss her
I don't know, the chillest cat I've ever seen was a tortoiseshell. Her name is oreo, and she's the most absolutely docile thing ever. Never hisses, growls, scratches, bites only playfully and without hurting etc. You can just pick her up and put her on your shoulder and she's content to lay there like a parrot while rubbing her face against yours and licking your ear. I'm actually afraid for her because she lives with my mom and little brother, and she won't defend herself even when the toddler is being mean.
I have a cat like that. Actually I've only seen calicos like that, never with black fur.
Advice for getting 2 female cats to get along? :( We adopted our first kitty, Louise, about 2 years ago when she was a few months old. We adopted a new kitty, Rose, 3 weeks ago (she's about 5 years old) and took our time introducing them. We kept them in separate rooms (switching them every morning so they could get used to each others' scent) for about a week, then over a few days following that doing face-to-face introductions with a small window pane between a door so they could see each other.
There was some occasional hissing during this time, but eventually they chilled out and seemed fine. Over the past week we've let them both have free reign of the place together as long as we're home and keeping them in separate rooms when we're not there, just in case. They were mostly fine, or they seemed to be. They would chase each other, and maybe we were mistaking play for aggression. Louise was definitely doing the guarding the litterbox thing, but they would both play with toys, scratch the posts, lay around and knead, etc. so we thought everything was ok.
Yesterday, things came to a head, and while I was at work I got a text that they had gotten into a nasty spat, with hissing, yowling, and paws being used. They got separated again and we tried a re-introduction today with the same result. Rose is VERY lazy and laid-back, and Louise is a feisty instigator. I think Rose got tired of her shit and started standing her ground and Louise can't handle it.
I'm scared that this is a personality incompatibility because Louise is honestly a handful. It's taken us a long time to get her to be even remotely chill and her behavior can flip like a switch, whereas Rose is the laziest thing ever and just occasionally wants to chase a toy. Are these just growing pains? Is Louise too old to get used to a 2nd cat? Is there any way we can get them to get along? I'd feel beyond horrible if we had to take Rose back, although I know the adoption agency would understand.
Left is Louise, right is Rose.
I'm in the same situation, and honestly no idea what am I supposed to do. I have an older fattie who just wants to sleep and chill and a new kitten who is wild af and jumps around. She attacks fatty and fatty is afraid of her, hisses all the time. I think I'm going to just force them to spend time with each other until they get used to it. Some people told me it took months for their older cat to get used to the new one. Rose is adorable btw.
Thank you! She is the fluffiest of fluffers. We're going to try slowly re-introducing them after a quarantine for a few days (on vacation this week, woo!) and hope for the best. What you described is kind of what led up to the spat. Louise would fuck with Rose by charging her, batting at her when Rose was sleeping on a chair or something, etc. and finally Rose was like BITCH and yeah... the adoption people said it usually takes a least a month for girl kitties to get along, and we're only a little past the 3 week mark. It was just going so well, and now this! Best of luck to you as well.
I have to put my two cents in.
The nicest cat ive ever seen is a black and white tabby thats at... wait for it... my local debate club.
The debate club is hosted in a tea shop and the tea shop has a cat. So debating kitteh just patrols the chairs looking for scraps of cake and milk.
Ive actually seen people pick her up and stroke her on a chair, and she just sits there and accepts it.
What makes you think she's not lactating?
The main reason a cat wouldn't lactate is if she's starving or otherwise has a nutritional deficiency. Pregnant and lactating females require more food than otherwise healthy adult cats of the same weight.
Tuxedo cats/female are extremely friendly. Males get really muscular like tanks and are a blast to pet but they are also insane.
This is my porch cat. She comes when called but it's a little troubling having to pay for the food.
A bit late, but generally, people say a mixed diet of wet and dry food is best. A bit dry for the teeth, rest wet for hydration.
I'm in Europe so I can't help you with specific brands, but here, anything significantly cheaper than 1€/100g is shit. Also anything with sugar, lots of things that are not meat and animal byproducts instead of proper meat.
I'm not sure if it's really top shelf food, but my spoiled cats eat only royal canin and Hill's dry food, Schesir for wet food. It's only found in specialized stores here and it's expensive, considering most cats eat Whiskas or a supermarket brand food.
I found a pregnant cat without a collar and took her in after some asking some questions.
But then I remember I know nothing about pregnant cats, she seems pretty relaxed tho. (hasn't bitten/scratched me, her ears are up, etc)
Anything I should know?
This thread is suffering from a severe lack of black cats.
This little idiot moved away but I miss him so ;~;)7
I live alone and am working a full time job.
I wake up at 8 AM, get ready, leave and come back home at about 9PM
On the weekends I like to get megadrunk.
Can I take care of a cat in these conditions? Should I get a cat?
Also, I was thinking of getting a black cat and I wanna give it a cool creepy edgy name. How's coffin? Any other ideas?
Cats are known for their independence but they do need some amount of attention and companionship. Especially depending on the individual cat- some can be super needy.
I don't have a lot of experience myself that would support it, but I guess maybe one idea for you would be to get two cats so that they could keep eachother company while you aren't around? I dunno, I'd want somebody else to confirm if that was a good idea because I personally haven't tried it.
And be sure to consider your behavior when you're drunk if you'll be doing it a lot around a cat. Are you a violent drunk? Will you possibly hurt the cat? Can you be gentle enough while you're drunk? Will you be unable to recognize when the cat wants to be left alone if you want to bother it while you're very drunk? Give it thought.
Also Coffin doesn't sound like a good name. Name it Spooky. Or go ask /x/- you'll get a few people complaining "not muh paranormal" but I think they're generally outweighed by the amount of people there that love the fuck out of black cats and also love thinking up spooky names for them.
Thanks a lot. I was actually considering getting two cats.
Regarding my behavior when drunk, I highly doubt I'll hurt the cat in any way. I am either a funny or a depressed drunk, based on how much and what I had, so I think that won't be a big issue.
I do prefer a needy, clingy cat, but I'm not a neet anymore and I can't keep it company all day.
I guess I'll give it some more thought, and maybe get 2 cats if people confirm that's a good idea
Eh kittens require attention and discipline. If you leave a kitten alone all day it's going to be very very lonely and your house is probably going to get rekt. I have a kitten now and it's like having a kid, you gotta keep an eye on it all the time. I'd suggest getting and older cat and make sure it's a peaceful one who likes to chill all day, like my other cat. I leave the older one home alone for 2 days (weekend) and there's no problem as long as there's food and water in the bowl.
all your sheltered cats are pussies compared to my based outdoor cat
He's very cuddly and affectionate though, as evil as he may look sometimes.
How often should a cat pee? The cat I adopted 4 months ago only pees every 12 hours or so, sometimes longer. I assumed it was normal but my friends cat pees every few hours.
He never seems in pain or shows any hesitance to use his tray, but he does flood it and get his paws wet because his bladder is so full. (Also I know he isn't peeing somewhere else because he is with me 24/7. He's a cat that has to either be on your lap or under your feet) Is it something I should be concerned about?
>the only picture I have of him being 'cuddly' is himself banging some random cat that managed to sneak into the garden
I need to see this
Straight up they were at it for days. Luckily I found the owner of the cat and she'd been neutered a week or so before or something.
Yeah, I was thinking a dry/wet combo would be best.
I know how to evaluate pet foods for quality, as I've been doing it for a very long time for my ancient old mutts. I was more asking for personal experiences with brands of cat foods. I'm currently interested in Lotus.
Does anyone know who Lotus's distributor/owner is? It seems they're self-contained on their site, which is a good sign, but I can't say for sure.
I fucking hate you for owning this glorious creature. Sphynxes are my dream cats.
That is unusual. Typically adult cats will pee 2-4 times daily, but this will vary depending on fluid intake, age, health, etc. Are you feeding him wet food or dry? If you gently pinch/tent the loose skin around his neck/shoulders, does it immediately snap back to conform against his body or do so slowly? (Google skin tugor test if you're confused by what I'm asking here)
>Cat has clean water, clean litter, wet and dry food
>still meows 24/7 if i do not give her attention
>she does not like to play with anything
>i work 9-5
>when i get home i want to relax
>cat wants me to just follow her or do something
>can't figure out what she wants
>will not come to me if i call her
>will not play with anything
>keeps on knocking over my TV
>keeps on scratching my walls
She's an indoor cat btw.
I found some random kitten in the middle of the road for no reason. Upon closer inspection it had very gunky eyes/nose and maggots protruding from what I thought was it's rectum. I have a cat myself and didn't want to risk giving a potential illness to her, so I put it in a carrier and put it in my backroom which was cool with some water and food.
Upon arriving at the vet turns out it's actually an injury that was covered in maggots. The vet said they couldn't say just yet whether it was a lost cause or not, and to call back tomorrow to find out if it could be saved. I'm a sap for animals, and this has been bothering me all day and had to say something.
I wouldn't get a cat in this situation unless it was an older (10+ years, they can easily live to 20) and more independent in personality. Otherwise, an older bonded pair that can keep each other company.
You were smart not to expose your cat.
Thank you for looking after that kitten. Hope all turns out well, but if not - well, at least you gave him a shot. That's the best most animal can hope for in this world.
This is Geraldine. I'm fairly certain she's autistic though.
He's been making a lot of noise today. As in snoring so loudly that I thought something was going on with the AC and his purring unusually noisy too.
Maybe he has some mucus going on in there.
Does my cat look like she's pregnant?
I found her 1 month ago, she followed me home and has always been extremely docile and tame, since the first day. She never meows, only inside a cage on a car ride, so I think she's either spayed or is pregnant.
Do you think I should have my cat's teeth cleaned? I'm worried because he's 12, so anesthesia might be too much for his senior body. The only health problems he's ever had was tapeworms when he was 3 or 4 and a stress induced bleeding stomach ulcer (he grew up as an only cat but was living at a house with other cats at the time. He lives alone now) a few years ago and is generally active and doesn't seem to be slowing down at all, but I still don't know if he can handle being put under. His breath smells awful
On that note, are there any things I can do to improve his oral health at home?
Tuxedo girl owner here, can confirm.
RV anon, I hope you find your cat. I thought my kitty had gotten out once (she's strictly indoor-only) and it was awful.
It turns out she has gotten stuck in the ceiling (that is, between the 1st-floor ceiling and 2nd-floor floor) and was too proud to meow for help for about 3 days. What a terrible time. I bought her collar shortly afterward.
My tuxedo guy is an ultra snugglebug, though. He's super laid-back, friendly, never bites or scratches and I've only ever heard him hiss was one time when an outdoor cat was standing outside the back door taunting him.
Pic related. He crawled into bed and sat down directly on my arm this morning and wouldn't move until I'd rubbed his belly for almost an hour.
should I worry if my cat has a few black spots on her anus? I've tried wiping them away incase it is just dried poop only for one to stay, cat won't let me do that again. It doesn't seem to bother her at all, she got toilet fine in her litter tray and doesn't pull herself around if it was worms or something like that.
this cat has been hanging around my backyard lately, the shit around its mouth and its somewhat heavy breathing has me concerned. is it sick?
Why does my cat doesn't like catnip anymore?
The day I bought a catnip plushie it went crazy for it.
Now I bought the catnip itself it just won't care for it. Tried spreading it on her new scratcher, with no luck. I also tried mixing it with a bit of water and alcohol, no luck either.
What the fuck is going on?
Stay the fuck away from sick animals, you mong. YOU can get sick.
If you really want to help it, trap it with a cat-trap, bring it to the vet, and let a professional care for it. That is if you're willing to spend the money.
if you're not willing to spend the money then why would you be willing to risk your well being?
Why the fug is my cat so chatty? I've never seen a cat so talkative. She meows at everything. Literally everything. You look at her, she meows. You touch her, she meows or chitters. I don't know if it's a contentment sound or if she's meowing because she's annoyed? Or wants attention? My old cat never made a peep, so this is kind of odd to me.
If you haven't yet, take her in to get that eye looked at. They can confirm or deny pregnancy while you're there.
12 years old isn't bad at all, and most cats should have at least one dental during their lifetimes. Anesthesia is so safe these days, especially if you do bloodwork beforehand to check his organ functioning... it's very worth the risk considering it's not at all uncommon for cats to hit 20 years. If his breath is very bad, it's probably because of tartar buildup, which will (if it hasn't already) cause damage to oral tissues like painful gingivitis, gum recession, tooth decay and/or loss, etc. The bacteria from periodontal disease can also potentially fuck up the heart and kidneys in the long term.
Trust me, you'll actually be saving yourself money if you get the dental done BEFORE his mouth starts getting severely fucked up. Extractions and time under anesthesia are the biggest cost factors for dentals. If you wait too long and he needs to have six teeth yanked out - that's when you can get reamed with $800+ bills.
As for home tooth care, the best method is brushing their teeth, but cat/owner willingness varies with this. There are flavored, animal-safe toothpastes you can buy to get a better clean/make the process more pleasant for the cats (mine actually enjoy getting their teeth brushed because they love the poultry-flavored C.E.T. toothpaste). The process is weird to cats so they need to be eased into it. Otherwise, there are drinking water additives, oral gels and sprays, and treats/food specifically intended for plaque control. Here's a list of VOHC-approved products: http://www.vohc.org/accepted_products.htm
Keep in mind that once plaque has hardened into tartar, it's very hard to remove outside of dental cleanings. If your cat has a lot accumulated already, it's definitely better to just get his teeth cleaned professionally, then employ home dental care methods to keep them in good shape from then on.
Are they at 4 and 8 o'clock? What you're seeing may be the ducts of the anal glands, and they may have visible material in them, especially if they're impacted. Any worms you'd be seeing around her cornhole would be white, not black. If you notice her scooting, licking/biting at her ass a lot, or swelling in the indicated areas - it's probably the anal glands.
Most likely it's just dried poop, though. I wouldn't fret.
Yes, something's wrong with it, I don't know what. It's probably not rabies (typically they foam) but be careful. There aren't many diseases you can catch from casual contact with cats, though... don't get scratched or bitten, don't neglect to wash your hands after touching it and you'll be fine.
Some cats are just really fucking chatty. I do pet-sitting for a guy that has one that pretty much never shuts up. The most likely reason for the vocalizing, though, is that she's bored, especially if she's an indoor-only cat. Try playing with her more and see if the behavior curbs.
I too have a carnivorous outdoor cat
He eats skinks, but he also likes to kill and eat rabbits and birds
Here he is looking majestic in the winter with his fatsuit winter coat
Last one of him. He looks so pretty in the tree
>>2150580 here, mouf looking much better today
yeah they might just be dried poop considering she has no issues going toilet, walking around and never scoots or goes for her ass except when doing her daily wash I guess but she spends not long on her legs and never goes for her ass when doing that. Guess I'll risk the claw again and try to clear it all off.
Cat is 2comfy on this new desk.
Hello /an/ any brand of litter you recommend? I'm looking for a cheaper alternative to pic related. Thanks in advance.
So he's in the ICU or whatever it's called for pets. Something wrong with his heart. His body temperature dropped below 32°C. But it's not heart failure, at least.
He's only three. I don't want him to die.
Big signs with pics. Cut a fluorescent poster board in half and stick a pic on it. Place them around where the RV was parked and possibly around the impound yard. You don't need a lot- but place them strategically so that people entering and leaving the area will see them. At this point, it's going to relentless, visible, and notable advertising that gets her back. I have used this to find my own lost cat, and in reverse to return list animals. Best of Luck
Guy who you responded to. Yesterday they kinda accepted eachother, but the little one is still wild af. Did you have any progress?
This is Yolandi. Once she brought home a possum that was bigger than her! She is very loving but also clumsy. Sometimes she sleeps next to my head. I love her. :3
Thanks, his name is Mowgli, like from the jungle book
He really is a wild animal though, he's a Bengal. He is a very....unique cat though. He won't drink water from a dish, he will ONLY drink from a running tap or from a filled bathroom basin. He's also noisy as all hell. I can't remember the last time he DIDNT wake me up in the middle of the night because he was hungry. He's starting to get old now though, he doesn't go out and come back home bloodied from turf wars with other cats anymore, and he's much more willing to actually be held by me. I love him though
Here my cat
He killed the headband then brought it to me as a gift
He was really exited to kill it. He was walking around the house meowing trying to find some one to show off to
Also heres other cat
My domestic shorthair was born without a tail. Sometimes it happens when the mother cat is very stressed or ill during pregnancy. Her spine ends right at her hip, so she walks kind of oddly.
It is possible he had a tail and lost it, but I think it's probably more likely he was born without one, if no one was obviously caring for him.
It can cause complications, but won't necessarily be any trouble. My girl has occasional issues with wetting the bed, and like I said has a funny walk, but that's about it.
As for keeping the kitten calm, just lock him in a room with you and hang out with him. Feed him, give him water, don't overstimulate him. Just sort of hang out in the same room and don't try to touch him until he's calmed down, so he gets used to you and doesn't see you as a threat. Move slowly and talk quietly.
If the kitten was feral, which it might've been, it could honestly take weeks before it calms down.
And my other two, which I still have. The big orange one is a huge coward, but super sweet. The other is just my silly chunky monkey.
This is my cat, Chester. He had a brother named Lester who fell out of a tree onto a stick and died so now he spends all his time with me. He brings in Rabbits and leaves them on my couch.
Idk why that upload sideways. Here's another pic of him
Oh he did
But he also got his ass whooped a number of times
That picture is old so you can't tell but he came home one night with a literal hole in his head at the corner of his left ear. Mowgli don't fuck with no bitch nigga cats
I've seen him chase off a raccoon a few times
A few weeks ago he chased a raccoon off my back yard at night. He came home completely covered nose to tail in swamp mud (my house is backed up to a tidal swamp). Of course he wouldn't let me clean him up so he just walked around with mud on him for a week
Wait is that Maru? I thought it looked like him but something seemed off.
Maybe its an older clip where he looks younger and I've just grown accustomed to seeing him a little chubbier and older.
I need an update on this cat. Can't remember how to spell the name but it's ehrebus or erhebus or some shit i don't know just show me grown up pictures
ive always wondered, how do cats know to poop in the litter box?
They know to shit on it because it's the worst smelling, most asthma aggravating thing in their environment.
"Oh this smells toxic, should probably shit on it"
Just one time. Then they have learned.
>tfw your cat is finally almost an adult and starting to slow down into her final form
to be honest, kittens are cute, but if i ever get another cat i'm going to adopt an adult. i love my cat but holy shit kitten histrionics get pretty old.
This is Fatty. She's mean, whiny, hates most people, and all other animals. Loves me, though.
>Poke around on Reddit
>Video of a guy playing with a random kitten that wandered up to him in the middle of nowhere

My ancient Kitty. Spends half the day outside and still hunts.
Also manages to get covered in burdock and other dirt and then cleans herself in my bed. Little Bandit.
This is the story of Noir
>was a huge stray that we noticed hanging around our house and eating the dogs' food
> even started coming inside through the cat flap though he would flee when when we saw him
>one night i noticed him sitting outside the cat flap and looking sorry for himself
>got a container of water for him and some dry food
>didnt trust me right away, but was happy to lap up the water
>continued leaving him food and water and eventually coaxed him over to me. he allowed me to pat him
>his stomach was bloated whilst the rest of him was stick thin, his coat was dusty and falling out
>figured he was an old boy that someone had left behind
>continued to feed and care for him for a few weeks and took him to the vet once he'd settled with us
>no microchip or tattoo, about 2 years old, quite sick but nothing too serious
>after a few weeks of TLC (tender love and chicken) he'd completely healed up
>stomach is still big as a bowling ball though
and almost a year later he hasnt left my side =)
our other cat still doesnt know what to think of him, but they tolerate each other
some stray cats can be quite bloated from eating bad food, could be that
or maybe a miscarriage? i know its horrible but its a possiblity
check her ears for a tattoo, if she's spayed she should have one like this
Not normally an antigravity cat though. I dunno why that uploaded sideways.
We managed to adopt her from a Tibetan monetary (in the United States) who weren't taking care of her at all. She was super shy for the first two months and would just dart around the house avoiding people. But after some good old fashioned time, love, and care she's a weird but very happy cat. She's still fairly young, maybe 2 or 3 years old.
This is my other cat Big Kitty. He's kind of a dick.
Something is up with mobile uploads right now.
Here's one last picture of Peaches and I'll stop spamming my kitties.

I have two cats.
This is a fluffy fat fuck cat called Edi.
Quick question; my cats are extremely domestic.
They don't bite, scratch and hardly ever hiss at eachother. They're indoor cats. Is this good or bad?
Pic related, this is Blue. I also own his sister, angel.
My cat killed a bird yesterday.
It was a small bird, it lived for a few minutes, my mother fed it some water but after a while it stopped moving.
why does my cat do this, it's a fucking pussy too, scared of everything
Here's mine, he is always by my side whenever I'm home. He is quite literally my shadow.
Family cat shot from a shit angle.
I can't remember when he was born but he's at least 10. Great tomcat. Big head.
My cat is so fluffy. And she also predicts the results of soccer matches. Is the perfect cat.
Here are my almost-twin kittens, Pickleby and Pomparumb
I just noticed one of my cats has a large (quarter sized) growth on the side of her fromt leg. It feels like a combination of a callous and a scab. She doesn't seem to mind it being touched, but how concerned should I be about this?
I just lost one of her brothers after a long battle with kidney disease last week and I don't know if I can take losing another so soon...
Yes, I'm going to take her to the vet, but I just payed my rent and don't get payed till Friday.
Do not put anything on your cat or any animal that licks itself. Ever.
Do not try to bathe your cat. Ever.
Do not apply perfume, soap or industrial surfactants to any of your animals. Ever.
Get natural soap. Oatmeal or no scent. And use it on another animal because one does not simply give a cat a bath.
I doubt she'll let me bathe her.
And bathing her would be a pain and take a long time since she has long as fuck hair.
But yeah, could be an allergy.
Is there a possibility that she's itchy because of anti-flee stuff? (some fluid I had to dribble on her neck)
She didn't itch herself before she had flees, and after we used that stuff on her she was okay for about 2 days and then started itching different places.
And it's not flees anymore, vet checked that.
>let stray female kitty stay around the house since she's fucking cute and well behaved, much more so than the actual house cat
>everything's fine after months, sometimes other cats from around make a ruckus with her (not sure what exactly but it's over in a flash), our dogs are fine with her now unless they see her rubbing on our leg and stuff like that
>SUDDENLY this sunday an unknown jet black cat with the yellowest eyes I've ever seen starts making moves on her out of nowhere
>dogs don't seem to like that shit, wonder why when they're used to see the strays aroudn sometimes
>catch the fucker INTENTIONALLY pissing off the dogs and getting away with guerrilla tactics whenever the female is around
haven't slept well these couple days since he keeps waking up my dogs in purpose (I saw him jump inside their little pen just to run through and jump out the other side)
what should I do, I know he's here for the girl but I'd like her to stay around as she's been doing
If it's a stray and has been in the wild for a while, it might not be possible to domesticate it. Once they get accustomed to the ferral life it's hard to undo what they've learned.
You might consider putting a bowl of food and shelter in your backyard and letting him go. He'll probably befriend you over time.
FWIW I have two manx cats, neither has a tail. They are quite common in the southeast U.S..
I don't really ever go on /an/ but my cat just died a few minutes ago and t b h I'm crying like a motherfucker.
Here's a picture of him when he was young and not quite as fat. His name was Lemmy.
Not many honestly, which I really regret now. Most of them are from several years ago.
Is she an adult? Then yes, it's wrong. Kittens can be held by the scruff, but adults weigh too much to pick them up by it without causing significant pain. It should only be done by necessity as a means of restraint on an aggressive cat.
She is 9 months old and don't show any sign of disliking being grabbed like that.
When i pick her up normally she sometimes trashes around so I assume she absolutely does not like that.
His name is Turk. He's a little punk.
This is meowzer on the left and tucker on the right. Any idea of what breeds they are?
They don't appear to sell that here but looking at the site, it looks to be of very good quality.
Nah. The most common causes of itching in cats are external parasites and allergies (including food allergies). It can also be indicative of infections, but in this case it's typically localized (e.g. ears, a wound). If you're feeding her something that contains corn, wheat, or soy products, switch her food. It's probably not the anti-flea medication she's reacting to unless you're using a shitty knock-off brand.
Quarter-sized is worrisome, particularly if it developed quickly. It could be an especially large skin tag or weird cyst, I guess, but definitely get it checked out.
Pretty handsome little motherfuck. Sorry for your loss.
Kittens will instinctively go limp when scruffed since this is how their mother carries and transports them. Some cats will retain this response into adulthood. A lack of reaction doesn't guarantee a lack of dislike, especially since cats are notorious for hiding pain.
Left is your dime-a-dozen tabby domestic shorthair. Right could potentially be a flame-point Siamese cross.
My cat decided to use our box for old paper as her new pooping box. (She still uses her litter box for pissing).
We can temporarily stop her and get her to shit in her litter box by putting double-sided tape, but she'll start using our box again when we take the tape off.
Any suggestions for a long-term solution to stop her from using that box?
They sound like a couple of nice kitties. My cat is the same way. She won't bite or scratch even if I try to overstimulate her. The only time she's hissed is when she first met my dog.
