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!

Hi feelingfeline. Max got a Convenia injection and eye ointment administered at the Hospital, and he was directed to continue with his eye ointment 2x/day until it was all gone. His usual hangout area is around the house next door, where a Nurse lives. She agreed to administer his eye ointment on that schedule, and she kept him inside until three days later to protect him from flies. By then he was no longer limping (his pain and apparent bleeding there had been from abscess). Now his eye looks much better. He seems to feel fine.

When Bunny was growing up, his "safe room" -- where he had to stay when we would not be home to watch out for him -- was our largest bathroom, where we had installed baby-safety-locks in the cabinets and drawers. He has no idea that he could get into the kitchen cabinets if he were to try.

I had to put down my girl, Bandita, yesterday. I'm just feeling so hollow.

We had an unexpected issue with her brother in January and had to put him down. I'm not even over that yet and then this. Fluid in the membrane holding the lungs....SO full and doc said 90% chance a tumor/cancer. STUPID, freakin' cancer. She is my avatar here.

So sorry Wally....totally get it. And now you've lost two. The last time I lost a cat was at age 21. It was different then. Didn't have cats again until 2007. Lost one of those at age 7. It was difficult.....heartbreaking. It does get easier over time, as you may know. It does.... It very much helped me to get a two new kittens for my remaining girl. I still remember my girl, but the good memories, mostly.

FeelingFeline, nobody ever gets that, so thank you for saying it! Venus was a little love bug, and Diana was very playful and always stalking toys. It seemed appropriate. Nerdy

Gosh so sorry for the losses. We had to have our Muppet put to sleep a year ago and we still miss him. We went to a shelter to see if there was someone there that clicked and we had to leave. Poor hubby nearly burst into tears. I guess we just aren't ready yet. Both of our were "accidents" that arrived unexpectedly. Muppet just moved in after living in the area as a stray. our previous boy, QUincy' was left in the house we bought in terrible shape. He went on to be 18.

Lorri, I'm so sorry about your cat. It is always so hard to lose them, but I think when it is unexpected like that, it feels even worse.

I have left my cats at home alone for a week, but usually have someone come by to check on them mid-week. I set up extra litter boxes (2-3 extras) and put extra food & water bowls all around the house. They've always been fine, but I worry about them when I'm gone.

Lorri -sorry for your loss. Heartbreaking! When a child I had a cat hit by a car 3 times, though she managed to live a ling life. Sadly, this is the risk we take by letting our sweeties outside. Only in last 10 years have I had cats and was determined to keep them indoors as MY heart could not take the risk of what would happen to them roaming free. I invested in a Purrfect Cat Fence, and if not in Europe, they have even better designs over there for letting cats out, but not OUT. Recently I got 2 younge Devon Rexes. They are serious climbers and knew the tall trees in my yard would be very tempting (and no way to secure them, and overtime, even the fence gets chewed on by animals in spring creatng holes I might not see to fix right away), so i got them a catio. No, it is not the same as they don't get to chase butterfies, etc.., but they love the smells and to watch the birds.

As far as going away, someone to visit the home once or twice a day and otherwise they should stay indoors. Your heart will be happier and your cat safer.
