Re: Cat can't find his way back in through the flap

I agree with Lilith, I'd keep him in after dark for now and leave the issue until later in the year. The problem is that once he knows you'll let him in at the front door, he'll just keep asking! Dope or not, you do have to wonder who is training who sometimes! :P

Re: Kitty playing favourites

Some cats can play favourites, but on the whole it's much more likely to be just what she's used to and what she feels more comfortable with. On the whole, men tend to be bigger, louder and with deeper voices than women and some cats do find that harder to cope with. He needs to 'woo' her! :D

Foster Cats - update

Having not been around for a couple of months, I've just updated Buzz's thread about finding his forever home and thought I might as well do a general update too. After his false start, where his first 'new home' decided he wasn't settling and brought him back after about 24 hours (!!!) Buzz went ba...

Re: Do all younger cats play?

My Daz arrived as a terrified trapped stray tom cat, aged about 5. It took him ages to gain confidence and I didn't see him play at all for several years ..... until he suddenly got a taste for chasing poor old Grumpy Nellie! Even then, the only play I saw was him chasing the other cats, and it took...

Re: Cat behaviour

I'm so sorry to hear what happened to your boy, but your vet is right in that it's better for him to be quiet whilst he heals so, hard as it is to see him like this, it does mean he should heal well. Poor boy has been through a lot, it's not surprising that he's subdued. Give him a gentle fuss from ...

Slugs - bah!! :x Every summer I get slugs in the outdoor pen, especially round the food bowl. This year I removed at least three a night from Buzz's bowls, including the ones I found doing a leisurely backstroke in his water bowl, which I started to call the 'slug spa' - huge great big things which ...

Re: Can't shake this guilty feeling

I'm so sorry to hear you've been through such a tough year, but I agree with Ruth.

It's the kindest and most loving thing you could...

Re: Cat who is extremely reclusive.

Having taken on several older and/or traumatised cats I agree with the others - just give her time and let her come round when she's ready. All of mine have, including the one that was so scared and depressed that he just huddled and trembled, not even raising his head when I came near him. Good on ...

Not sure if this will be of any help ..... but here goes ..... The outdoor pen that I use for foster cats has a little heated house with a cat flap entrance.

Re: Feral wont leave

I agree with the others, though it could also be that she's just a naturally more timid cat and will take longer to 'get her bearings' in a new environment.
