a thread for crazy cat ladies! I thought maybe just pics of your own cats, and if there's not enough then just any old cat you can find!

I have 8. Technically only 5 are mine, the others think they live here. Mostly because I feed them with everybody else and they never seem to leave!

Robert is really cooperating in that photo. Makes him look presidential. Love ginger boys.

Adorable little calico at the shelter last night. They said 2 mos but I think she's younger. Eating well and has a mighty purr.

I went to the shelter last night for my regular shift. My foster had been visiting for a week. He was being bullied by his roommate and the shelter was full, so I brought him back home. I've also learned (because I'm able to read their notes) that he's blind. Back home, it's really obvious that he can't see. I think perhaps I should make catnip trails for him to follow to get to the two places he likes to hang out. They're talking about him coming back in a few weeks for another go at adoption. I'm so tempted to tell the vet I want some of whatever she's smoking because she thinks someone will adopt an 18yo blind cat with early renal failure, high blood pressure, and hyperactive thyroid. He does still like to be picked up and purrs, so there's some quality of life still there. The shelter was absolutely packed and there really wasn't a good spot to give him.

This was Sammie, our wonderful outgoing super friendly kitty. I got him at 7 months and unfortunately he had FIP and died at 14 months. But in his short time with us, he was a hoot! Here he is in our German shepherd's bed--she weighed 75 pounds and he was about 7 pounds but boy, she didn't even argue with him about the bed.

Hi All -

Have not posted in a long time. Have been dealing with severe liver progression with complications since July...

Here is my 16 year old Ragdoll Max. We had to do a lion cut yesterday because both of us cannot stay ahead of his fur mats.

I held him wrapped in a blanket for an hour this morning while he warmed up, stopped shivering and took a much needed nap. While I love being able to comfort him, and that he comes to me for comfort...it makes me so sad for him.

Another example of cancer's collateral damage...

Hope all are well here.

Sorry you're dealing with progression and all side effects. I've heard of people putting a baby onesie on cats rather than a collar to keep them from accessing their back and sides. Perhaps a warm one would help your kitty until he adjusts to less fur. They also sell a disk that's microwavable for warmth that lasts for hours. Used a lot for kittens to help keep them warm. It's called something like cuddle safe (not exact name). A shelter might be able to loan you one now that kitten season has wound down.

For any of you who might remember the Whitey Saga from February 2019 (car accident, major surgery, miraculous recovery...)...

Whitey's cat hoarder owner finally moved on so Whitey is fully mine now. We re-named her Cleocatra (Cleo for short) and moved her to our 2nd home with the other kitties. She is a full-time inside kitty now. She adjusted very well and her pudgy little belly is proof...

PS - Again thank you All for supporting me through that scary time when I did not know if she would live or not...8 months and going strong as my continual Survivor Inspiration...
