Greetings!

Lily is obnoxious. After two weeks separate from Mu-Xi, they had their meet and greets on the floor in an open pen. Within ten minutes there was lunging at each other. I did this for two days. Then I did the buddy bath. Both pigs got bathed together in the bathtub and then put into […]

for the birds

I walked by the bird cage today and talked to the little feathered ones. Koi and Jak were cuddled up in the corner and Idris was in her Happy Hut, gyrating and being happy. I then left to check the mail. Coincidentally at the same time I was walking out, boyfriend was walking in, back […]

Two cats on a diet

They both act so differently about their food restrictions. The feeding schedule is very liberal around here. Tommy Gargoyle gets 3/4 cup food because he’s supposed to be in the 13 lb range. Stewart gets 2/3 cup food because he’s supposed to be in the 12 lb range. They both get fed together as follows: […]

I’m open to new ideas

There are so many things that I could teach my cat if he weren’t already fat. He’s highly food motivated and I could probably teach him to shake and lay down and sit upright if I could bribe him with treats. Sad for me, he’s been on this prescription diet for a year and hasn’t […]

Stewart is a odd little guy

I caught him giving himself a bath while sitting in the guinea pigs’ litter box. He’s also not being free fed anymore so he’ll try to break into the feeder for five minutes before stopping and staring a human down and then proceeding to cry out like a child that has their favorite toy removed. […]

Gatefeeder Writeup

We received our Gatefeeder a few months ago. The first surprise was the hold on my bank account alerting me to potential fraud as the order is routed through Hong Kong. No big deal; moving forward: I was very excited. Food is an issue in my household. One male cat (Stewart) is on inhaled steroids […]

happenings

Honey is doing very well with the rest of the guinea pigs. I reset the pig pen with a freshly laundered liner and removed the fabric corner cave and replaced it with a plastic “pigloo”. I also removed the wooden house and replaced that with the large pigloo. Basically the point was to neutralize their […]

Polite

It took some time for me to be the type of cat person that I am. I started with The Twins when they were tiny babies, separated from their mother. I had no idea the body language, litter habits, outdoor feral behavior, indoor/outdoor behavior, collar types, harnesses… zip, nada, nothing. I have a neighbor that […]

Speaking of molting and new feathers…

Jak and Koi decided to navigate to the other bathroom today and join me while I was clearing my sinuses. It must have sounded very interesting because the path to this bathroom is not the straight shot it is to my usual bathroom. The Xs also mark where they typically land. Jak happened to land […]
