I have one cat. Her name is Sasha. I adopted her from the shelter when she was about 4 months old. She is a sassy, one-eyed (she lost her eye due to an infection before I adopted her) cat that I can't imagin living without. She really has been a comfort during trying and the good times.

We have a Maine Coon cat that is our baby. He's the most loving animal I've ever seen, and he's funny! He has 'Alien Tail' which is hilarious to see! He suddenly notices his long bushy tail and will race through the house like he's trying to escape it! We discovered its a twitchy nerve at the base of his tail.He has learned to come to me and I 'adjust' his lower spine and 'alien tail' goes away! He can also walk on his hind legs for several steps. Thus his name,'Knothead.'

nvB .. They had already looked externally, and found no sign of a scar, so there was nothing to show she had already beeb "done" She has recovered now, had final chech up at vet yesterday, and is back to her affectionate self. But she is not a cat for laps, likes her own chair and to be tickled & stroked there.
---alan_of_UK on 3/25/06

NVBarbara, Knothead? Don't give me any ideas. Although Dweedle Dee and Dweedle Dum work for me. :-)
---Nellah on 3/25/06

I have a stuffed Woody Woodpecker. He is very obedient, quiet, and always stays put wherever I put him.
---Eloy on 3/25/06

I haven't checked this blog lately, thought I'd drop in.
Wow Alan it looks like they could have checked her to see if she had already been spayed! I hope they didn't charge you full price! I'm happy she's returning to normal, whatever that is for a cat! I can imagine her lounging in your lap as you sit in your garden, they're such good company.
---NVBarbara on 3/24/06

We have an 8lb chiuaua/pekineese female. She is a spoiled lap dog ,but loved.
---candice on 3/24/06

Alan ,I'm glad they took that cone off her,Mom had 4 cats "fixed" and none of them wore the cones. She'll get the hang of using her little tray. If you want to really get her to like you,try scratching her right above the tail on her back. I've tamed wild outside cats with that trick. Good luck, she will be so much fun and company for you. We've never had house cats just the strays,but some of them learned to like being petted. They all learned to come to whistling for them at feeding time.
---Darlene_1 on 3/8/06

Darlene ... My cat went berserk this morning again rushing round the house and banging the cone against everything.
But when my daughter came in, she had got out of the cone, and then my daughter saw her do a wee in the tray, but not yet a poo.
Have taken her back to the vet who says we can leave the cone off.
She has let me stroke her and is again showing signs of affection (cat not the vet)
---alan_of_uK on 3/8/06

Alan I read somewhere if you will throw a wet towel over a cat it is easier to catch it. When kitty does her dirty "business" in the floor,pick it up and put it in the litter box,then take her there so she can smell it. Must let them know box belongs to them,don't know why it works but I used it on a cat I gave my son and it did.
---Darlene_1 on 3/8/06

Hi everyone. I just got home from the vet. My Madison has a urinary tract infection and we are trying to get a specimen to check for crystals, which would mean kidney stones. Needless to say, I am not having fun. Nor is it fun to play "Catch the kitty" to give her a pill twice a day.
---Madison on 3/7/06

nvB, also she is not allowed out for 10 days, so I have to hope she will suddenly learn about a litter tray.
The most unfunny thing is that when they got inside her, they poked aound and found she had alrady been spayed, so it was all unnecessary anyway.
---alan8869_of on 3/7/06

Well, nvB, things are not so funny at the moment. She had her op today and came home tonight with a conical hard collar enclosing her head, to stop her biting the stitches. It terrifies her, and she just hides in a corner and runs away if I try to approach her. It bangs agains t corners as she runs round them which frightens her still more. The collar has to stay on 10 days. I have to take her back for a check tomorrow, but do not know how I will catch her.
---alan8869_of on 3/7/06

To the cat people here, must add;my hubby and I have a soft spot for animals, when stray mama cat left 5 kittens here we didn't have the heart to call the pound,we fed them,kept water out. That was about 20 years ago ,kittens grew up,bred and along the way we've had from 5 strays to 38 that we feed. Right now we are back down to the original number, 5. Four males & one female, with Spring around the corner the population will increase again,can't catch them to have them "fixed"wild as a lion.

Not so irreverant Alan, that gave me a giggle! How's she doing since her surgery?

Nellah, our cat was named 'Scout' for a while, until we learned his ways. 'Knothead' suits him much better!

BTW 'To Kill a Mockingbird' remains my all time favorite movie.
---NVBarbara on 3/7/06

We have a Black Lab ,who at 85 lbs. forgets she is a big girl and will put a foot on my lap and eye it longingly.She is spoiled rotten and allowed to get in my husband and the men in the family's laps. A very sweet,loving ,breed of dog. They always have to be touching you even leaning on us or sitting on our feet. Loves children and all the family, but an alert guard dog of our yard. When let out of the yard she heads for our Suburban and sits at the back until someone comes to let her in. We're hooked!!
---Darlene_1 on 3/7/06

I have two cats, about 8 months old, or rather they have me. Both males, JJ and Scout. JJ was named after my boss and Scout is a girl child in To Kill A Mockingbird. Thought he was a she, but kept the name anyway.
---Nellah on 3/6/06

nvB When the cat came first appeared, I anmed her just CAT, and she answered to this name. But when it became clear she owned me, my daughter named her Mary. It was a bit irreverent, it was just before Christmas, and we thought she was pregnant ... that is how she got her name!!

The RCA Phonograph dog is Nipper. He was born in 1884 in Bristol,England. He wasn't pure Bred, but a mixed "Mutt" being part Bull Terrier and Fox Terrier. Hope this answers the question of his Breed.
---Darlene_1 on 3/6/06

Pit Bulls have been bred to fight. Poor animals. The most agressive have been bred to more agressive ones to propagate a vicious strain of "fight" in the animals. That's what makes Pits dangerous. Less than 6 months ago an elderly lady in our area was killed by "pet" pit bulls. They belonged to the neighbor, got out of the yard, 5,killed her working in own yard,they weren't fighting dogs. Only thing to help is reversing process, breed gentlest to gentlest, to give the Breed a chance.
---Darlene_1 on 3/6/06

Sites differ as to the type of dog Nipper, the RCA mascot was. Some sites say pit bull, some say Jack Russell, one even said fox terrier. Just can't seem to get their facts straight.
---Ann5758 on 3/6/06

not at all 1cliff,but los angeles is a little diffrent than other cities.
pits have a bad rap.Do you know that dalmations are the #1 biting dog and dauchunds kill more babies under 1 than any other dog in the world..Pits that have been bred to fight need to be put down,but those who haven't area most gentle and loveable and loyal dog. you know that Pete from the Our gang (little reacals) was a pit bull,as well as the RCA dog

A very responsible thing to do Alan. Having her spayed will keep howling males away, and neutered pets are generally calmer. I'm happy you have a new friend! She chose you, she could see your gentleness, that's the nature of cats. They own you, not the other way around!
---NVBarbara on 3/3/06

I am taking my cat tothe vet next Tuesday to have her speyed. She was an unwanted kitten until she started calling round my house. We do not want her to have kittens, as there are too many unwanted already.
---alan8869_of_UK on 3/3/06

Willow; Pitbull and pitbull mix are banned in our jurisdiction, it's illegal to breed or import them, those that have them must muzzle them in public and tether them. Is it the same where you are?
---1st_cliff on 3/2/06

I have a half pitbull/lab mix named Bo. he is the clown of the family.

Hey Madison, I don't see why we couldn't teach our cats to dust. They lie all over the furniture anyway. What if we sprayed them with Endust in the morning and then in the evening.. just vacuum them! Or, maybe.. that's why Nacho dives under the bed every time the vacuum cleaner comes out.

We have an 11 year old tortoise-shell cat named Ruffles..named after a bag of potato chips- lol. She sits on the ledge at the top of the stairs and swats at you as you go by. When she was just a young kitten, I broke my leg and had a hospital bed in the livingroom. She loved to lie at the head of the bed and ride it up & down as I adjusted it. She still sharpens her non-existant claws. We couldn't be without her now.

Our male yorky, spanky is 6lbs, and emma is 3 lbs. (full grown) .We have bells at the door(low down) that spanky rings when he needs to go out! Skeeter,the love bird is a peach face latino (all yellow with a peach face) does acrobatics in his cage for attention ,and rings a bell with his foot. They are a great source of pleasure and an awsome example of God's creativeness.

Eloy, anytime you want some company and 'somebody'to play with, I'll send Knothead for a visit!

I heard that Madison, I have to keep the vacuum handy! Knothead has very long hair, I wish he could clean up after himself!
---NVBarbara on 2/25/06

We have a 4-year-old golden retriever named Champ who, of course, knows he is another member of the family. Champ has a new squeaky ball and seems to have developed a "crush" on it. He watches it with adoring eyes and packs it everywhere. He hardly looks at us anymore and gets nervous if we touch it. We've named it Wilson ... after Tom Hanks' volleyball in "Cast Away" ... because he treats it like it's alive.

Donna: At one time my house had a cat, dog, hamsters, bird, turtle and guinea pig. I also had a rabbit. Oh, and three frogs, they belonged to my son. I ran a petting zoo at a day camp, and took some of the critters to school for classroom pets.

My cats keep me company too. I just wish they would learn to clean and vaccuum.

I have had and loved both cats and dogs. Right now, I'm down to just a cat from a local shelter (as most of my pets have been). He's a big yellow Tiger (neutered of course)named Nacho. I baby him because he has asthma. He's great company for someone who is alone as I am. I pray for him, too.
