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 […]

Biting bird

Things have been going so well lately, with regards to the birds. Koi is turning 7 next month. Her bird, Jak, is turning 8 in July. This there is this birb. Dam birb: Idris. Idris will be turning 6 in February on Valentine’s Day. I’ve been though bitey bird spells before, but they were with […]

update from the surgeon

Tommy’s day on Friday was a tough one. I got up and fed him a half serving and gave him a dramamine. A half hour or so later we put him in the carrier. He was thrashing about and going wild (I’ve never seen him like this) and got the cone off in the carrier […]

The systems we use

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 […]

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 […]
