Just adopted a 3yr old long hair Calico about a month ago...finally became buddies with my 13 yr old Mainecoon recently. sometimes it takes a while, but they finally accepted each other...now they are buds.

They are great!

I've been informed that we now own a rescue parrot. To go with the three rescue cats. To go with the two dogs, the other bird, the fish...

Cats are not off topic. I think the CORE logo should incorporate a cat. 3DMax has snakes, we have cats.

I went looking for one and ended up rescuing two sisters. It was a good choice. The ferocious-kitten-attack-energy was mostly expended at each other and not at my feet. They are good company for each other.

Twice as much pewp, though.

Mudbox also features an animal in it's logo. I think it's a coyote or something similar.

She does look frightened in that pic...I hate to think of what she may have been through before arriving at the shelter.
I believe no punishment is too severe for animal cruelty!

I commend you sir for saving her...she'll come around once she begins to feel safe again

My two cats were scared and withdrawn when I first picked them up. The shelter people told me they were abused as kittens and that's why they got them. It took about a year for them to adjust and now they're fine indoor/outdoor cats who have taken on the responsibility of running my life.

i was looking at a cat that looks very similar. i have been trying to find somewhere in my budget to make up for the $30 increase in rent for having a pet. growing up on a pretty large farm with animals all over, it has been a big change moving to the city and not having any pets at all.

Altitude is important to kitties. Put them on the highest surface you've got and what do they do? They look up...

My kitties were taken from their mother at 3 weeks and brought to the shelter. They're missing some crucial education. They both use the litterbox okay, but they don't cover up. After they've done their business, they paw at the smooth sides of the litterbox, the floor outside the litterbox, the wall nearby, but not actually the litter itself. They have the instinct to paw at something, but they don't know why.

Lately, they've started catching mice in the basement. They bring them upstairs and watch them. I don't think they're playing cat-and-mouse, though. I think they honestly have no idea what to do after they get them under control.

These cats look so much like a pair that showed up at my parent's house that my kids swore that they were grandpa & grandma's kitties.

09-14-2009, 08:04 AM
Oh, mouthy! That's cool. Here's a partial list of the personality features in my house.

Dora: Fascinated by men, even or particularly strangers. Ignores women unless they're talking loudly, which attracts her. Phone conversations draw her in, too. Loves to chase and attack insects and mice, but won't kill them. Suckles and kneads on a particular blanket, but only when it's on the bed.

Cleo: Twice Dora's weight, but squeaks like a little, tiny kitten. Terrified of strangers. Scared of me every time I enter the room, though she remembers me after I speak. She will eat any insect except for ants. Not interested in getting near mice, but will watch her sister play with them. She jumps on the back of my computer chair and waits for me to put out my right arm for her to walk along, to get to the top of my monitors, for a nice nap. Won't use the left arm.

Yes, walking the cat with a leash can be irritating for both of you. My Dora is so happy about going out, though, that she'll deal with the leash.

I wish I could let her run free, but we're on a lot of land and we've seen coyotes around. I can't bear the thought of her dying like that.

Still, poor kitty spends all day thinking WANT OUT. Luckily, her sister only cares about going down in the basement.

cresshead
09-16-2009, 09:16 AM
yeah i hope to have her as an outdor cat but need to make sure she doesn't just run off and get herself lost..need her to get used to my location.
also need to find out if she's car 'savvy'..as in she keeps away from cars on the road...
if not then she'll have to be a part time outdoor cat...supervised!

she's young so has abit to learn...she already met 2 neighbors cats and simply hissed and growled at them and ran back inside!...
should have had that on camera when she met them last night.

Here´s Sandy the nicest cat I ever met, the birds in our 2000 square feet garden will probably not agree. But she´s really cool and always stay calm even in situations were other cats **** themselfes.

She also enjoys crawling into small boxes and loves when my daughter put blankets and stuff on her.

About 2 weeks ago she had three little red kittens that opened up their eyes a couple of days ago... sweeties!

Awesome pusscat!..look's like my old cat "leelou"

anyhow...day 11 Monday..dusk!

Day 12...eeek!

well last night she got free of her collar whist out...
she hid under a parked car..managed to get her back in..!..phew nearly lost her i think as she only knows about 30 feet either side of the house currently.. and simply HATES children by the look of it...

anyway i'm still trying to introduce her to the Neighbours cats...
this is the closest she's dared to get so far....2 ft away from the tabby cat..she was HISSING like mad..the tabby was just sat there cleaning..not botheed at all!

..."behind you"...

I had a harness for my cat, much more difficult to slip out of. I only put it on her when we went out, like to the forest in the park.

yeah good idea..thanks!
she's very scared of nearly everything..but STILL wants to go outside as long as it's quite and no children around...it may take some time for her to gain confidence...not sure what her previous owners were like but i'm thinking 'not very good'...

will look for a harness tomorrow...def a good idea..this isn't going to solve quickly so will be worth it i think.:thumbsup:

We keep all of our cats inside - safer and they live longer without fleas or outside diseases.

well if she doesn't take to outdoor life...she can 'visit' outdoors with me on the end of a lead :thumbsup:

hi quick update...Poly's been a little poorly the last couple of days..she's got the runs!...eeek!
though she started to eat cat food again today which is a good sign i think as she's only been licking the gravy for the last few days and eating dry food.

she's running around and playing still so not curled up in a corner 'ill'
...cats!...like having kids huh!:hey:

One of my kitties had that problem as soon as we got her. The poor thing sounded like someone trying vigorously to get the last out of a squeeze bottle of mustard. Didn't slow her down, either, though.

Great pics!

When I moved cross country I had a leash for my cat. We stopped at rest areas and I would let her out to go and explore a bit. I added a rope to the leash so she'd have more room to run around a bit. Almost at every stop, someone wanted to take a picture of her.

well my past 5 cats didn't need a leash either...but Poly must had had a hard time before i picked her from the Rescue home...she totally freaks with people..very frieghtened espacially of children..so i'm having to re educate her that children/people don't mean danger.
she's cool with me as we've spent some time together now and she's learnt i'm 'okay' :cat:

a few weeks ago we took our 3 cats to our second apartment becouse we were painting and putting new floor in the other apartment...and a few days later one of them just...disappeared.


two days later he came back....to the apartment we just took him away from (the one we are renovating).
i cant even start to understand how he found his way, but i now respect him far more than before...
