It’s October. We can’t have the windows open.

Tommy Gargoyle has been on Prozac for about two months now for his spraying issues and anxiety. He’s doing well and I haven’t seen him mark anything personally in quite some time. However, our youngest male cat Stewart is a piss machine. If we have the windows open he’s spraying like five times a day […]

Pet Friendly Motels and travel

My father swears by Super 8, but he only travels with a dog or two. I’m traveling with 4 cats, 5 guinea pigs, and 3 parrots. La Quinta boasts a wonderful pet policy of no fees or deposits, HOWEVER, they will count ever animal you have whether it’s caged or free, towards their 2 Pet […]

Oh my Tiny Tiger

Amalie went to the dentist 4 1/2 years ago and had five teeth pulled do to a crappy hand she was dealt of living on the street and having a condition knows as FORLS. The tooth wears away from the inside out. It’s crazy. So I took my baby cat to the dentist yesterday. She […]

the cats

Since the spraying started, I’ve also switched Stewart to a new food. I followed their feeding directions based on his weight and next thing I know, Jr Fatty has put a little over a lb back on. This was confirmed when we took him in for his vet visit. They ran his blood, took some […]

It’s getting better

I think I’m done updating the Juvenile Weights of the guinea pigs. They are full grown, except for Potsticker, who seems to grow out rather than up. She is almost 1000 grams. Her auntie Mu-Xi is 1010 grams. Stewart is eating the new food without being too skittish about it now. Stewart got sprayed in […]

Surefeed replaces the Gatefeeder

Because the boys have this dirty habit of watching the girls eat, and then distract them into leaving the door of the Gatefeeder unlatched. Stewart was initially using the Surefeed as a way to make him feel more secure against Tom, and I thought that we could put more than one serving at a time […]

home sweet home

Dismal is out of town for the weekend – A LONG weekend. Thursday thru Monday. I didn’t get up this morning early enough to feed the boys so I get to the kitchen and see the treat tote bag in the middle of the kitchen floor. I’ve been trained to keep it zipped up. It’s […]

self sufficient

Stewart and Tommy got into a buffet early this morning. Before dawn, early. Dismal got up and found sample pack after sample pack ripped open and eaten from. The the bags of treats were pulled out as well, but those came out unharmed. So then I got to sift through my samples and filtered them […]

Nobody likes it

But I still use this tooth scaler on Tom and Amalie a few times a year to break the sheet of tartar away from their back teeth. It’s about time to do Tom’s again, but today it was Amalie. She’s incredibly difficult and requires my patience because she has very sensitive gums due to her […]

Tom’s diet

We’ve been doing it for a few days and it’s going well on the Tom front. The other cats, however, are being a pain in the butt. I was told by the vet tech to put them in the bathroom for an hour with the food. The only one this works with is Stewart, because […]
