10:16 pm - New Mod

Hi All:

I'm the new mod.. as you noticed we were getting spammed so I asked LJ if I could take over. So here I am. :)

Anyways I wanted to let you know that I'm going to change the membership to moderated and also anyone who posts anything will have to get approved by me. I'll change it back after I weed out the people here who are spamming.

Anyway, have a good day.

7:34 pm - Help an injured kitten

Some asshat put a kitten in a paper bag and flung it at a door. Its hip was broken and its tail hacked off, and this person is asking for donations to cover the hip surgery it'll need to correct the break so it won't be in agony growing up, and other medical costs. There's a short vid of the kitten and someone I assume to be the poster talking to her. She's such a cute little thing and you can see how hard she's trying to get around but can't with the way her hip is.

12:38 pm - Cat Allergy Question

I'm a prospective future cat owner and a cat person, but unfortunately I'm also quite allergic to them.  I've been looking into more proactive ways of dealing with the hay fever and throat-closing-up than just allegra or histamine blockers if I was to get a cat, such as immunotherapy.  However, a few days ago, I was visiting someone at a ferret rescue shelter (www.motorcityferrets.com if you are in the Detroit area and want to adopt a fuzzie)  and they had mentioned that there are these drops you can get from the vet that go into your cat's food, and after a while they'll counteract the materials in the cat's saliva that causes the reaction. 

I was curious if anyone here has any experience with this, knows what it is called, how much, and if it works.  Two people at the shelter swore by it but I havn't been able to find anything on it?

Failing that, anyone try immunotherapy for cats?

I'm very worried about my 13 y.o. very nervous cat. He's got an endless list of problems (poor boy) but the most obvious annoying one sits outside my room at night making noises almost like he's gargling. "waaaaaaaaaaaaaooooooooow, waowWyow(gargle)waow"   He goes on for ages, but when I check to see if he's all right, he is; there's nothing obviously up w/ him, he's just sitting in the middle of the floor doing said waowing. He sounds like someone playing guitar badly.
I think he'd been ill-treated as a kitty. It would certainly explain why he's scared to go outdoors/walks around w/ big eyes. How can I help him?

current mood: ill

Hey guys, I have something of a plea for all of you.

I don't really expect anything to come of this, but tis the season...

my roommate and i rescued a kitten from a sewer drain under our driveway last week. she's about 10 weeks old (must have been around 8 when we found her) and the sweetest little thing ever.

sadly, her tail is crushed in two places.

her tail has died and is beginning to rot.

she chews on it and then meows in pain, then continues chewing.

we went to the vet yesterday and he refuses to work with her until she gets her shots. that's something we have to do anyway, but the kicker is that we have to get the tail AMPUTATED.

This means we're looking at a bill of almost 700 dollars.

he's asked that we have 400 today. 400 dollars! i work at a gas station! my roommate is unemployed!! we're freakin' college students!!

so I implore of you... if you have it in your heart or your wallet to spare some money.. 5 bucks, even.. we'd appreciate it so much. more importantly, our kitty will appreciate it.

I wouldn't ask if it wasn't so important.

and now.. behind the cut.. pictures of our precious Tindra Klaus Terez (but we call her Klaus)Collapse )

i have two three month old kittens. they both are quite sensible about using the liter, so any excretion issues havn't been a problem until...

this morning, i found a piece of poo on the floor right next to the toilet.

i have no idea why either of my kittens would do such a thing. i wonder if this behavior is going to continue, and what i can do to stop it. (however, they have both used the litter box since this morning).

any comments/advice?

5:34 pm - Desperately need CAT ADVICE! *New to community*

Some background:
Read more...Collapse )

My question:
Have any of you transitioned a (very happy) indoor-outdoor cat to an indoor-only cat? What was the process like? What should I expect, in terms of the cat crying through the night, scratching at the front door, etc.? What were some things that made it easier for both you and your kitty? Do you recommend any kind of special food for indoor-only kitties? What about ways to make sure my kitty gets enough exercise and doesn't go stir crazy? Should I invest in little box liners, or do cat's normally just tear through the plastic with their claws? Ad nauseum.

I am having some huge anxiety about all of this, because I know that it's going to be hard on my poor cat. And I can't deny that I am frustrated that I basically have a baby to take care of now, because I am a college student, living alone, and was looking forward to traveling some this summer (yes, that is semi-selfish, but it's also human).

I am desperate for advice, and really appreciate anything! (Also, I x-posted like crazy, for that exact reason...I apologize if some of you read this post several times.)

7:20 am - My cat takes my pulse

No, really!! Sometimes I dump about a gazillion pillows on the floor and get down there to watch tv or read, or watch the ceiling fan turn. If I lay on my side, eventually Willow will come over and lay down and put her paw on the pulse in my neck for a long time. If I move her paw she puts it back. Obviously this has some point us mere humans don't understand. Matt thinks Willow thinks I'm purring because she doesn't make any noise when she purrs and you have to feel her neck to check for that. That's her in my avatar.

current mood: happy

12:44 am - Amber Story

Amber is probably about 3 years old. She is an orange and white tabby cat that we simply found sleeping on our front porch last spring. At first, she wouldnt come near any of us and would run away if we got close. But, we started to put food out for her and a kitty bed. One day while sitting outside, she just wandered up to my grandfather and hopped on his lap purring. Slowly over time, we introduced her into the house. She was very apprehensive about it at first...stepping in for only a few minutes and then running back out. As the weather got colder though, the more indoors she enjoyed. She is happy here now and only goes out if absolutely necessary and we allow her that. You can take the cat out of the wild, but not the wild out of the cat. She's a good girl and very loving. Happy she found us.

current mood: cold

3:18 pm - Ceasar story

Today as I was leaving for work, I stopped briefly to play with my one cat. He is 2 years old and loves to play hide and seek. Of course he is the one that ALWAYS runs and hides. Well I always know his one spot so I go in to get him. He was so intent on watching where I was that while he was sneaking around the side of the couch, he walked right into the table. It didnt phase him, as soon as he saw me look at him he ran to rehide. But, I guess he tuckered out cus I then found him sprawled out across the floor in the hall waiting for me.

current mood: busy

1:21 am - YAY Kitties

Hello. This is my first post with Insanecats. Great idea for a community.

The photo I am using for this post is Samantha, a pure bred bluepoint siamese. Sammy passed away of Kidney failure a little over 2 years ago, but she brought so much joy to me and also brought me my love of cats. Without her, I wouldnt have the 2 I have now. And these 2 picked my home, not the other way around.

First is Amber, an orange and white tabby. We found her sleeping our our front porch almost a year ago. At the time, my grandma placed a rule on the house "No pets allowed." But, behind her back, my grandfather and I lured this stray wild cat into the house slowly over time. Letting her get use to being inside. Now in the winter time, she loves inside more than outside. Plus, when she first showed up, she wasn't to big on being around people...now she is a love and hates not seeing one of us.

Second is Ceasar, a pure bred chocolate siamese. Ceasar had a sad life before coming here. His original owner died and the guys mother didnt like nor want a cat so she tossed him outside. So here was this poor siamese cat that had been declawed running around outside for 6 months. When he was finally caught by the ladies owner, he was skin and bones. The lady asked around and my one uncle (this uncle also gave over Samantha) said he would find the cat a home, if not he would keep it. He was going on a vacation so brought Ceasar to my home. By the time my uncle got back a week later, the cat had moved in here and wasn't moving.

Now 5 months later, we are still trying to figure out a way to introduce them. That should go over real well. :)
