Re: Loss of Oscar's "sofa spot"

Hi Lilith (very funny hahaha) :lol: and Janey. Thanks so much for your responses. I also hope he gets back to the sofa soon - it's just that his bro and I are watching TV in one room and Oscar's on his lonesome in the bedroom albeit with the electric blanket I might add. The other week Felix (the br...

Loss of Oscar's "sofa spot"

One of my cats, Oscar, is white and tabby and is around 8yo. I adopted him and his brother from the DSPCA here in Dublin. Oscar's spot has always been at one end of the sofa in the living room. Because the sofa is a burgundy colour his hairs showed up everywhere. I had to comb them to loosen them en...

Re: OVERWEIGHT CATS

Kay - I've been feeling so bad thinking it's all my own fault but you've given me hope yet :D

Will see if I can find those toys you mention AND the food - never heard of it here (Dublin) but will Google ;)

Thanks so much - will keep you posted :D

OVERWEIGHT CATS

Hi - I have 2 cats since '09. Got them from the DSPCA. They were already named - Oscar and Felix - very aptly!! They'll be about 7 yrs now. Have been trying to get them to lose weight for at least 2 yrs. Initially very little loss. Now one has actually started to increase weight. Both very tall cats...

MISSING CAT

I'm really worried about my cat Oscar. A wild cat (i think) came through the catflap last night and Oscar had an all out fight with him - it was only that row that caught my attention - i had now idea there was an unwanted guest in the flat!!! I could see through the window the wildcat reluctantly l...

Re: brotherly rivalry and my boys "gifts"

Well five days later and my flat is gift-free. Felix, the now-dominant bro doesn't seem to be "huffin'" and "puffin'" so much so the three of us are a little more relaxed ... thanks again for all your 'tips' and for reassuring me I didn't have a vicious monster in Felix :shock: It's strange to me th...

Re: brotherly rivalry and my boys "gifts"

brotherly rivalry and my boys "gifts"

I adopted two brothers from the DSPCA in late 2009. They were about 7mths at the time. Oscar was the more outgoing of the two, Felix seemed to be afraid of his own shadow. Over a period of two years the roles have reversed quite markedly.... with Felix huffing and puffing when he doesn't get his own...
