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!

Spookiesmom that brand didn't work effectively. We are on expensive human insulin. I am going to try petmeds to see if i can get cheaper there. Thanks for the suggestion.

I’m on an insulin pump, thank dog for insurance. 3 vials for me is almost 1k. It’s way too expensive for humans or critters.

Spookiesmom, my older son has type 1 diabetes, tell me about the cost of insulin. It's criminal, that drug isn't one with lots of research to pay off or one that's somehow super expensive to produce. Nope, it's just a drug where if you need it, you need it to stay alive.

I picked up insulin at Costco yesterday. They included a flyer about their lower cost insulin and that pets can join their pharmaceutical club.

Wrenn sit down before you read this.

Ok cat moms. I’m thinking about getting a kitten this summer. Can’t do now, as I have to be out of town for a week or so, dogs will travel with me. Spookie is 11, Kris is 10. I have no idea how they would react to a kitten. Do you all think they are too old to accept and adapt?

Which is more playful, boy or girl? Which likes to snuggle? Just looking for some preliminary advice.

Almost no way to tell how a kitten will turn out. By the time they're one, you have an idea of whether they like to snuggle. All kittens are playful. That's why they often say you should get two so they can play together when you're bushed. Summer is a good time to look. Kittens are sort of seasonal. Mom's have them in the summer when it's warm. You're in FL so it may be less seasonal there. If your dogs are fairly mellow, they should adjust OK. A really nervous dog might not welcome a kitten at all. It should be a slow introduction either way. One of our dogs convinced the kitten he was a puppy, so we had the world's doggiest kitten.

Yeah I'm not trying to be a kitten pusher, but consider two. They do a great job of entertaining each other and if your pups don't like them, they won't be lonely.

That is exciting. I do wish we had brought home one of Louie's brothers, but they would definitely gang up on poor Felix.

Regarding spookiesmom's question. I have the impression that boy kittens do more wild, scrappy, attack mode play. Right or wrong?
