Re: The Tomcat !

Really enjoying all the poems!

For a brill rhyming song on You Tube, check out Shorty and Kody and their song "I'm climbing up the Christmas Tree Neow", really good, great video and song. Guaranteed to make you smile!

Re: New member

Hi May, welcome to CatChat! I am slave to just one (Denver) but I know the joys of a multi cat house too - when my neighbours cat Mischa (who eventually adopted us) decided to have her litter of kittens on my mums bed at midnight we ended up with a grand total of 8 - 4 of our own, Mischa plus 3 kits...

Re: Cat flap - cats are too posh to push !

Denver also has one of those microchip flaps, but he is used to using it - but he's so funny, he doesn't push it with his head, he uses a paw! He keeps bashing it until it opens, then he sticks his head through with his paw holding it open! He also likes to look out to check its safe before going ou...

Re: Poo partly in and out of the litter box.

Sophie is a beautiful boy, Alan (how about just knocking the "E" off the end to make Sophi?)! One trick I tried with my elderly pair (now both at Rainbow Bridge) was to put a shallow "normal" tray across the entrance to the primary tray, that way, if they "missed" it ended up in the other tray where...

Biscuit, my first much loved cat, a ginger/white tabby adored my mum. During the t...

Re: Interesting cat article from the Telegraph

They haven't told Denver about the "affection" part - when he gets on my lap he really snuggles up high for a cuddle and he really loves a tummy rub when he wants it!! But I agree with most of the rest.

Hi Shawn, welcome to CC.

Hi and welcome to CatChat.

My late cat Kitten also had a stomach lump which turned o...

When my late cat Kitten adopted us, it took us 2 YEARS before we could even touch her - she had been dumped into the rain when her previous so called owners moved house without her and she came through the first flap she could find.

Re: To block the flap or not to block, that is the question.

I know you already have a flap but is Minnie-Moobles (lovely name!!) microchipped? I ask because Denver has a flap that will only let him into the house as it "reads" his internal chip. They are more expensive and you have running costs (batteries) but to me it is worth every penny for a cat happy t...
