Cats. Feline funnies and other stuff.

Cats have a good sense of smell. The aroma of Dreamies would attract their interest, methinks.
In the case of mine though it's the sound . Soon as that bag rustles they come charging down the stairs like a herd of efelumps ..
Stand in the doorway and have pawprints going up and over .
 
It was mentioned upthread a few days ago about cats being psychic and has got me thinking .
There has been two occasions recently when I've been in the conservatory and our ginger boy Gary has also been in there when neighbouring cats have cut through the garden .
Both times he has stood up at the glass for a better view and getting very interested not knowing any strange cats . Not a sound out of him though and both times his two sisters have come bounding in from wherever they were in the house to have a look themselves .
How did they know ?

You could be here all day wondering about their psychic powers. You could set your alarm for 5am or 9pm, they somehow know whatever that time is and tromp on your head about 15 minutes before.

What about a liquid or paste cat treat - there's one called likiliks? Which our Miss Laurel used to love

The last few posts have all been reminiscent of 'How To Give A Pill To A Cat (or dog)'
 
What about those small cartons of kitten/cat milk? Just askin', like, as our two love it. I think of it as evaporated milk, but for moggins.

That might work, depending on the taste of the medicine.

I had to change Jeeves' arthritis tablets as he suddenly refused point blank to eat them however they were disguised and I didn't want pitched battles trying to get him to eat them every day.

New tablets are unflavoured and much smaller so they fold into a small sliver of cheese, bacon or a small mince ball and disappear within seconds

Well you ain't certainly not give it as a suppository are you, unless either it is a French cat or you have a death wish.

Obviously totally wasted on you.

I feel for you mate. Is he on any medication?

Because putting medication in Jasper's food has been hit and miss, I thought I would retry putting the steroid in his mouth with a syringe this evening. I am not sure how much went in as he moved at the last minute, but hopefully most of it went in his mouth or around his lips.

I am finding it hard to cope with the idea of losing him - he seems happy and active, and enjoys food and fuss, and going outdoors.
He's only on meds for his eye, 2 sets of drops and some antibiotics that gets syringed down his throat, he actually likes that bit.

He's 10 in December, we got him as a rescue around 5 yers ago. His owner had been taken into hospital and then a care home 4 months earlier and the only people that he'd seen were those who came in twice daily to feed him and clean his litter tray. A friend of our's asked us if we'd consider taking him in and we suggested that they bring him round to have a squizz. He was sat in the back of his travel cage and when the door was opened, he bowled out, jumped on my lap and then sat himself on the arm of the sofa with what could only be what looked like a contented smile, so we couldn't say no. We got him chipped and registered in our name. He gets on with the other cats, mainly because he's not a raving lunatic like the rest are. Our oldest female knows he's not well and has been washing him due to the fact that he can't due to the collar and follows him round the house so he doesn't bump into anything. The rest, who were scared when he first came home with the collar, now let him have first go at the food and sleep wherever he wants, even if it is their usual place. I think they know he's not going to be around for much longer.

Sorry to hear the news. I hope they give you a decent update on Monday.

Strange how the other cats often seem to know more about what is going on than we do. He's being well looked after.
 
Bad news on the Ginge front, we were out and about yesterday socialising with another Arrser when SWMBO gets a phonecall. Convo over and OH is in tears, it turns out that the lump under his tongue is cancer. It can't be treated by Chemo and they can't operate as it will mean removing his tongue. The good news is is that it won't metastasize and he can lead a happy life until the end, we have been told to keep an eye out for him not eating. We'll find out more on Monday when we take him back to the vets for a check up on his eye.

So sorry to hear that, you must be gutted.

Thanks for the update though, I follow how cats mentioned are doing.

Same as when you give food to a stray and a day later several have appeared in your back garden even if there's no longer any food. I've long believed cats have some kind of Skynet-style collective conscious that they all tap into.

They do seem to have some sort of connection with each other at times .

My brother has been visiting today, and gave Jasper quite a lot to eat, even by his old standards. However - he put nothing in it, and as Jasper has not really been hungry since it has caused disruption to me trying to medicate him.

I think the key is putting stuff in when he wants food. I kick myself for not putting his steroid in the cream I gave him at lunchtime - my leftovers.

Jasper does not appear to be an ill cat.

Annnnnnnnnnd, amongst other things it seems the draw-tapes on my shorts are fair game...



"Yeah, this exploring the strange bloke on my block is important, dude, but - hey!; gotta look good - best have a quick groom mid-explore..."


"So, the big bastard has parked this large gift bag on me, eh? What to do...?"
