Is your cat driving you nuts?

My eldest male, Tommy Gargoyle, really has his days sometimes. They were on hiatus for a great deal of time because he was on Prozac for over a year. He was so pent up with anxiety that he was spraying everywhere, everyday. I decided in December to take him off, and see what happened. Today […]

Guinea pigs are amazing little fuzz butts

It took an extra week to get to cleaning the pig pen after I caught a cold. They do try to take care of it themselves, if they have everything else they need. When the guinea pigs are soiling different parts of their pen, they start dragging hay around the pig pen and lay it […]

I got bit again. Why, bird? Why?

You can’t just keep them locked up because there is a 20% chance they’ll misbehave. Idris wanted to hang out again. I go into this, fully understanding that there may be something I don’t recognize that I’m doing, and she’ll bite me. Or she’ll just bite me because she’s happy, or I’m not looking at […]

The systems we use

With 4 cats,  we’ve tried several different feeders. When I first realized Tommy was tipping the scale,  I bought an Aikiou. He lost a few ounces but then I got a Gatefeeder,  and locked him out and let the others free feed from it.  Then when we realized Stewart was overweight too, we locked Stew […]

I love my cat. I hate my cat.  2

Well..  As it turns out,  Tommy Gargoyle built up a tolerance to Bach’s Rescue Remedy Pet within about a week. At first he took a nap,  and by the last day I had him on it, he was fully zooming around his side of the house and beating on his sissy,  Yue, for funsies. There […]

It’s really come down to electricity

Over a month on a prescription diet(we had urine and blood ran for tests at the vet) for Stewart, all the Ssscat cans placed around the joint, the motion sensor water sprinklers to keep other cats out of the yard, the Feliway diffusers plugged into the walls, the extra litter box upstairs, and the lavender […]
