Title: Cats
Post by: Sands on June 08, 2014, 04:53:05 PM
You know what everyone loves? I sure know what I love. All these silly tulpas keep distracting us from our true masters, the cats. We must talk about cats in this thread to please the masters.

I love how my cat wakes me up. Well, he rarely wakes me up and instead he wakes up when I wake up, but as I lie there in bed, he comes over to me and is all "mrow". He starts headbutting my everything and purrs so loud as I pet him. He also meows at the same time as he purrs and it sounds so funny and he's cute. Cats are cute.

Use this as narration/visualization fodder, young tulpaforcers.

Cats are the secret rulers of the world. Seriously. Our governments are influenced by banks and such, which are controlled on a multinational level by a conspiracy headed by reptilians. But that's no secret, anyone with their eyes open knows that. The shocking news is that the reptilians are actually puppets for our cat overlords who rule from aboard the International Space Station. You think that's purely science? Guess again, sheeple. You're being controlled by mind-control rays beamed down from the ISS and sister networks of satellites to your cat's tail-antennas, who then influence you via hypnotic suggestion in their cat noises. This is no joke; this is very real. Cats are evil.

Cats are cute.

This is the one my family now calls "Lacey cat". Not sure why we add Cat, or often Kitty to the end of her name, but she's cute and stuff. Haha, she managed to get outside during a storm yesterday. Came running right back to the door once thunder sounded.

Cats are cute.

Once my cat managed to get outside on his own too. Luckily I wasn't living where I live now as I probably would have never seen him again, but back then I was living with other people who didn't seem to realize "keep the goddamn door closed" meant... Keep the goddamn door closed unless you're planning on following the cat. My cat's pretty timid, but he is so curious so an open door and yeah, sooner or later he's gone. Was pretty worried there as there still were plenty of cars around and I have already lost cats, but luckily he came back in an hour. All wet and quiet and scared. Didn't want to go outside for a while after that, I usually take him for walks and he enjoys that but welp, he rather stayed inside after that. For a while.

Okay so my cat's neutered okay. You should get your cat fixed if you're not planning on breeding them anyways okay, it will make your and the cat's life easier. Okay. Okay so anyways, obviously he was under anesthesia after that when I brought him home and with the fast metabolism that cats have, they're bound to have an accident. That's not a surprise. So obviously at some point he pissed himself and later on as he started to wake up properly, he would start wandering around. Never got too far because he would always fall back asleep after a couple of steps so I got my piss-soaked cat a less piss-soaked place to sleep in, some nice warm and soft place. I left him there for a while on his own while I went to get me something to drink and then I come back. And man, what do I see. Cat's somehow made his way on my chair and I have no idea how he did that, seeing that it would kinda require jumping and everything and he was so drugged even walking seemed difficult. Welp, there he was. What else could I do except to take the piss-soaked cat and let him sleep on my lap. He seemed to prefer that. Wasn't all that comfortable to me, though, but he was cute.

Figured it'd be worth mentioning that Lacey wound up being a boy.

This is the second time this has happened to us :l

Imean, I'm not keen to check out a cat's junk either which way, so I had no way to really confirm nor deny, but to my understanding, someone checked a week or two ago and was like "oh".

Cause apparently it wasn't obvious enough when he was teensier. Or something.


Just figured I'd mention cause why not, still check this place every couple days anyway. Not that I'm coming back you bunch of RP'ing attention whore faggots ;-;

(Mfw still actually pays Tupper attention every so often because I'm a weak-willed bastard)

Well isn't that just sad, Fede?

Don't worry, I won't pity you at least. Cause you're a faggot.



But we already knew that.

Really, I just browse because it's familiar. For the first week or so I was trying to abstain from checking up around here and .info but eh. I like reading some PR's and threads. Never really had much going on anyway, looking around is a good time killer

But yeah. Cat was identified a dude a couple days after I decided eh on working. Wanted to post something but decided not to. Was bored in class earlier and figured why not.

His name is Tigger now, I think (Brother is going through a Winnie the pooh phase), and he too is a faggot. Have a few new scars by his paw :T

I guess I shouldn't bother to ask if you even considered those words in your dairy thread and tried some of the stuff, or even if you did try the stuff, that you just ended up giving up like always thanks to zero motivation for pretty much anything tupper-related.

No, I don't have anything to say about cats. Too simple-minded animals. Guess that's why I'm not much for animals in general, unless they're imaginary and thereby intelligent if one wants them to be.
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Sands on August 26, 2014, 09:06:14 PM
Well it's really hard to properly check a cat's gender when they're very young. And in your case, you got the cat when he was pretty young. I'll also go ahead and assume that who gave the cat had never taken the kittens to a vet, which is kinda bad.

I guess you learn to see it at some point when you look at enough kittens, females have their peeholes very close to the anus while males have a bigger gap. Shape's also different, as females have a slit while males got more of a rounder hole. Kinda like humans, eh.

Much more than I ever wanted to know about cats and their butts, but thanks nonetheless.

I think we're taking him to the vet to get his shots, fix him, and all that stuff relatively soon, but idunno. Bastard's throws up on one of our blankets like the little shit he is every couple weeks, so I guess shots would be a good idea.
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Sands on August 28, 2014, 08:55:26 AM
Well, throwing up is a sort of a normal part of the cat life and I don't see why you would think taking shots would prevent that. Especially because if your cat throws up because they're sick or something, taking shots won't magically cure them.

A cat could throw up because of many reasons. Every couple of weeks doesn't sound like awfully often anyways and I wouldn't be concerned unless I saw something wrong with the pile of puke. You should take a look at it to see what exactly the cat is throwing up to see what has caused it. It's most likely hairballs because cats swallow a lot of their fur when they clean themselves and they need to get rid of it somehow so it doesn't grow into a giant hairball inside them that they can't get rid of. That's one expensive vet bill.

Does the puke have many unchewed pieces? Cats can be lazy bastard and just vaccuum everything in their mouth without chewing. Those large pieces can cause them to throw up later. The answer can be to either baby them and cut everything tiny or give them large pieces of meat they have to chew so they can eat it. Though watch out, if your cat decides to go fuck the rules and tries to swallow that... Well, that could lead to suffocation.

Is it mainly dry food? Your cat might be eating too much of it. The dry stuff expands once it gets wet so that can cause many animals to throw up. Maybe limit the amount of dry food the cat can eat.

While your cat doesn't throw up often enough for this to be very possible, I'll mention it anyways. Does it happen after they have eaten some particular food? The cat's stomach could be sensitive to it or the cat might even be allergic. Though I'd assume you would get a lot more throwing up unless there is some food you only feed them rarely and that is what causes it.

If the cat doesn't seem to throw up nothing, it could also be because their stomach is empty and they are hungry. Cats are small animals with a fast metabolism. They need to eat often and long times without food is dangerous to them.

Lastly and what most likely is the issue, hairballs. Even if the cat doesn't throw up a hairball, there could be a lot of hair in whatever they throw up, hidden in the puke. You should brush your cat often so that there's less fur that gets inside them to cause this and you should grow them grass too. It helps them to be able to pass the fur with stool instead of throwing it up - though of course, sometimes the long tufts of grass they eat could cause them to throw up anyways, but if you keep your grass away from any soft surfaces, they would hopefully do it on a surface that's easy to clean.

Watch out though. There this one plant called the Cyperus zumula which even is called cat grass and sold as such. Other people say it's safe for cats while others say it's very poisonous to cats. No one seems to quite agree and some people do report their cats reacting badly to it. I wouldn't take the risk myself, you could get something like oat seeds instead which most likely would be cheaper too. Don't buy any grass that doesn't say what it actually is so you can see if it's safe.
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Enny on August 28, 2014, 09:19:10 AM
Well yeah, he throws up every couple weeks. But it like, comes in bouts of three or four times. He absolutely wrecks like, two beds and a carpet every time he goes at it. I'm just not super cat savvy, and wasn't sure if it's because he keeps getting sick or what. So idunno. Plus, our other cat never really threw up.

I'll uh.. Check the vomit next time, I guess. Not much I can do for it, I'm not the one that feeds him. It's all dry food, and he doesn't eat grass so eh. I could probably encourage someone to get a dang cat brush, though. Could do that, I guess.
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Sands on August 28, 2014, 01:55:58 PM
You can just try to lift the cat off the spot they're trying to ruin if they start throwing up I guess. I also suggest changing his diet to have some wet stuff as many cats tend to be pretty picky drinkers, so the wet food gives them some of that extra water they need. Dry food also always has a bit too much wheat or rice or something, which is a problem to carnivores. It can end up in some rather unfortunate problems.

Sounds to me like he might be having hairballs if he throws up so often in a row. Grass and more brushing would hopefully help a bit. Also if you have other plants, make sure they're not poisonous and they're somewhere the cat can't get.

One day cat woke me up and was cute. He purred and was on the bed and I was just chilling there, not worrying if I fell back asleep. The cat decided to sit on my arm and started kneading it, purring so loud and drooling all over me. My arm was pretty numb after that, he sat there for ages.

Cats are cute.

Cat got his teeth cleaned today at the vet because he can't keep his teeth clean, what a lazy bastard wow. It does mean he had to be put under anesthesia and that means you get a drunk drugged cat. Constantly trying to climb on my lap too, goddammit. The moment I get rid of him, he's back and kneading my thighs until they're full of tiny little claw marks. But he's cute. It's weird how he just feels smaller in this state. Like he looks smaller and feels lighter.

Cat has decided that it is cold again and he has to sleep next to me so he can use my warmth.

Instead of moving cat outside when they're about to throw up, just move them on some kind of surface that is easy to clean. Faster and easier. Also the cat sure is throwing up a lot, what kind of stuff does he puke?

I'll just stick with taking him outside. I don't like cleaning up after him, it's super icky and I'm a bitch. And he just eats his cat foods. Kibble stuff. He only throws up once every couple weeks these days, but it's normally just once.

Maybe he just ate too much yesterday cause he's dumb, or something.
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Sands on October 27, 2014, 07:53:42 PM
Better to feed them wet food anyways, dry food will suck moisture and expand, which tends to cause animals to throw up. All dry food (especially the cheap kind) also has some kind of grain in it, which isn't all too good for cats as it causes all kinds of medical problems. They're carnivores, you know, they can't handle that stuff. Grain should never be their main diet. It's also not very good for their teeth as they need some bigger pieces of raw meat to really get those teeth clean - assuming your cat even fucking tries to chew their food rather than swallowing it as a whole and then throwing up. Other cats always seem to easily get all kinds of shit on their teeth so I suggest you teach the cat to let you brush his teeth when he's still young.
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Enny on October 27, 2014, 10:14:10 PM
I'll definitely run all of that stuff by his owner (Me stepmum), when she's back in a couple days, probably. Have an outdoor cat that has effectively the same diet and he's significantly less retarded tho, maybe this one will learn in time. Dunno. He's silly.
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Sands on October 28, 2014, 02:06:35 PM
Well, outdoor cats do hunt some of their food, so there's more actual meat in their diet. Of course depending on what kind of an area you live in, their prey might be eating all kinds of nasty stuff that can affect the health of the cats... Though the biggest issue with outdoor cats of course is that you can lose them pretty fast due to cars or other animals.

This thread needs more cat stories!

How does your cat react to you doing active forcing / meditating?
Mine is obviously feeling ignored which is considered a major crime, worse than reading.

.) generally is 'around', purring and/or walking up and down restlessly
.) licks or chews my fingers
.) scratches my clothes
.) scratches on door, disregarding pet door
.) jumps on shelf and shreds some important paperwork

Ok, it's not always like this, sometimes she's also sleeping on my lap. But given the weight and purring, that isn't exactly helpful either. But cute nonetheless.

I love the fact that y'all use "he" and "she" to refer to your cats, the same way you normally would call humans by their gender. Such emotional attachment, guys.
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Bernd on January 17, 2015, 02:52:37 AM
Ha, I kinda expected exactly this sort of comment.
I can't get myself used to calling all animals 'it' in English as in German few ones are neuter. However, all diminutive forms are, so kittens are 'it' whereas adult cats are 'she' except if specified as tomcat.
In Spanish, cats are always 'he' except if specified as female.

But apart from that, how much autism does it take not to feel emotionally attached to a creature you've spent your daily life with for more than 15 years?

"It" tends to be used for non-living, non-animal things with genders. Pets tend to kinda fit that description. Hermaphrodites are kind of an issue, though. English lacks a good gender neutral pronoun and using the plural "they" gets old at some point.

Cat just walked over me because he could. He usually didn't do much while I forced, just chilled there with me like he usually does. Was pretty cool to just sunbathe with the cat and force. But often when I talk to the tupper out loud, the cat is like "mraah" because he's a cat and if you are talking then clearly you are talking to a cat.

My cat still throws up a lot and just projectile vomited everywhere, and my stepmom being the angry person she is is just like "Whatever, we'll just take him to the pound so we don't have to deal with him"

He's pretty much dead if that happens. He's already so mangy because he thinks he has fleas on him even though he hasn't in months, and all scabbed up, and nobody around here wants a cat that's always throwing up :c

We've switched out his kibble for different brands and tried a lot of different food, but no matter what, he just throws up. I get that cats throw up, but sigh. We need to take him to the vet to get a better diet for him figured out probably, but nobody really wants to save up the money to do. Sigh. Wish I had a job ;-;

Hope we don't get rid of him, I love that gross little cat.
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Sands on April 04, 2015, 07:36:18 AM
Take the cat to a fucking vet already. When you get an animal, you need to be able to do this for them no matter what happens or you're just neglecting your pet. And with the way animal cruelty laws finally seem to be picking up, you could actually get in legal trouble for that.

I know I would be reporting the fuck out of your family if I saw this happening in real life and knew where you were living. You're currently unable to provide for the cat: either fucking start doing it or get him another family. You don't have the luxury of being selfish when it's another life that could be sick.

I will assume that you guys actually brush him and clean the house often enough so he's not eating dust or hair or something off the ground like an idiot. But with what you're saying, I will assume he's also not vaccinated so he could have gotten some disease that might kill him if you don't get it treated.

Post by: Enny on April 04, 2015, 01:21:55 PM
I believe he's had his general vaccinations, but who the hell knows. He doesn't seem fucked up aside from the frequent throwing up, but even so, I agree that he needs to be checked out, and set up with a proper plan. Also with the skin thing. I don't know if you get cones for cats, but he's an idiot and keeps biting the hell out of himself, so yeah.

Ugh. Poor cat. I've been trying to hound the parents as much as I can about taking him to fucking anyone who knows anything about cats, but we'll see how that goes. My other cat is still perfect and shit, doesn't throw up where we can see more than once every couple months, no skin shit. Sigh

Idunno, just venting, I'm still pissed about it. Sigh.
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Sands on April 04, 2015, 06:35:26 PM
Yeah, you can slap cones on cats if needed. If the skin condition hasn't spread to the other cat then it most likely isn't mange because that thing spreads like hell. Could be an allergy, either food or flea bite. You really need a vet to figure out the cause. Currently the scabs seem like the worse sign here unless the cat is losing weight because of the vomiting (and you have never described us the contents of this vomit either, is it hair, food or nothing?). I don't know if you're just overreacting when it comes to the puke because cats like to do that, but you can usually cut the amount they do throw up by making sure they don't ingest hair and dust.
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Enny on April 04, 2015, 08:39:14 PM
It's normally all food, but the most recent time was nothing but liquid. No hair either. Yeah, cats throw up, but he's doing it so fuggin much, it's insane. I'm honestly beginning to think he just enjoys throwing up because he's a piece of shit but who knows?

He did have fleas at one point, to which the biting made sense, but he never stopped after we got rid of of them, so it's probably something psychological? Again, don't know. I'll try and get something done, don't want him to have to leave ;-;
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Sands on April 05, 2015, 06:45:45 AM
When it was food, was it dry food or wet food? In both cases, it's most likely caused by eating too much too fast, usually without chewing properly because cats are the kind of an animal that can't really chew. You'd want to make sure you only give them a little bit of food at a time. Dry food also tends to swell in their stomach so that's one thing that causes throwing up. But if he's currently only throwing up liquid, it's because his stomach is empty. Cats are small animals and carnivores, they process food fast. They need to eat often.

Food-related pukings related to my cat, I've had both of those happen. To avoid the first because he just vaccuums food up without chewing is to either give him smaller pieces or a large chunk of meat he can't stuff down his throat without ripping it apart first, or just smaller portions if feeding cat food from a can. If he wakes up before me because he's hungry, he could throw up nothing, so I've made sure that there's always a little bit of food for him overnight in case he needs to eat.

And of course, it could still be a food allergy that causes both of the symptoms. When you were trying new foods (you shouldn't switch them out too fast because cat stomachs can be sensitive to change), did you actually take a look at what the food was made of? Grain and fish are pretty big cat food allergies, you'd want to find food without those and try them out. Trying to narrow down food allergies is pretty much removing everything and then slowly adding in more stuff until you get the symptoms again.

And if it was an allergic reaction to the bites, even if the fleas are gone (though they might not be as they are really difficult to get rid of the entire environment and I'm not sure if you guys are willing to spend money and time to get your entire house and yard flea-free) then the cat will probably still keep itching the itchy places so they never have time to heal. But you know. Only a vet knows for sure. Could be something worse.
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Enny on April 05, 2015, 09:48:58 AM
Step-mom's mom is finally taking him to the vet, here in the next couple days. So that good. Only took the better half of forever.


Food, several kinds of dry-foods, normally with about the same stuff in it just of different brands and different sizes. Same stuff is probably a tell, I'll look into it. We've given him a couple kinds of wet foods, and I'm not sure how that went. He's scored himself some after the most recent throwing ups, so maybe it will do him good, but who knows, vet.

Idunno, yeah, hope it gets resolved, will keep ya posted.
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Sands on April 05, 2015, 07:02:34 PM
Still didn't answer my question about what was in the food. If you just pick random shit off the shelves and feed them to your cat without reading what actually went in there... Well, you're probably feeding them the stuff that might very well end up in more vet bills even if there are no allergies involved. Grain is the worst thing to feed to a carnivore. Dry food tends to be high in grain because well, you kinda tend to need it to make that kind of stuff easily. Grain's also cheap so it's a filler in pretty much all the low quality cheap cat food shit that shouldn't be fed to a cat.

tl;dr buy grain-free food for a cat

Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Bernd on May 22, 2015, 04:09:26 PM
My cat sometimes 'barks' at dogs when they pass by the fence. Scares the shit out of them.

The chattering mainly happens when birds are out of reach or simply too big. A few days ago the cat was stalking a crow that was walking on the street. Cat got as close as about 3m, then they both stared at each other. Cat chattered a lot but did not move any closer. Now keep in mind that this was a carrion crow, about 1m wingspan with a 6cm massive beak. You don't mess with these guys. I was standing close to them so I carefully moved away to see what would happen. As soon as I was gone, the fucking crow started to walk straight at the cat which chattered for am moment but then fled. What do crows think when moving in on cats?
My cat isn't really big but an avid birdeater who has killed a crow before but also got injured by a bunch of them. So I'm kinda glad it ended like this.

Do your cats go outside and if so what prey have they brought you?
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Sands on May 22, 2015, 04:39:40 PM
Don't let my cat(s) go outside on their own. I've had enough cats get killed or disappear already, not to mention I've seen enough people trying to hurt cats on purpose when seeing them outside... Yeah, no way José. Wouldn't trust other people enough to be comfortable with letting cats outside. Then again I am currently living in a more urban environment, but in more rural areas other animals would probably be a bigger issue so not gonna do it there either.

Once we got a butterfly to come inside. Cat was chattering like mad.

Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Sands on May 31, 2015, 07:04:28 AM
Nothing wrong with staying inside. Even a cat that has gone outside their whole life can live inside without any protests while those who have lived their entire lives indoors can be introduced to outdoor lives. Obviously these things are easier to teach to a cat when they are young, as old cats tend to be autistic and hate everything new (including changing homes), but it's not like it's impossible or anything.

The only thing that really changes is that a cat can be more independent outside. They will go where they want, amuse themselves and get food on their own. You have to provide a cat that is indoors all of this on your own, so you need to actually play with the cats so they don't get lazy and weak. You tend to create a different bond just because you are around each other all the time and I do prefer it to a life with an outdoor cat.

As for leaving cats on their own, they sleep most of the day, kittens or adults. My cat goes to sleep when I leave and wakes up when I come back so we can do stuff together. Thing with kittens is that they're curious and stupid so they tend to get into trouble if you don't watch over them, but luckily they grow out of that fast as long as you get one at the age they are supposed to be given out (4 months).

Making your house kitten proof enough is a good thing. Block any small holes they can crawl into, remove things where they could get stuck, be it their body or something like a claw. Try to make sure they can't climb high on their own, avoid curtains they can reach. If you think something bad could happen with something, trust your instincts and be safe rather than sorry. Also get into a habit of checking that pile of blankets before sitting on it in case there's a kitten sleeping in there.

Can't actually recall how I got into the pussy thing, but somehow I got to reading about it and it struck a chord with me. Reminded me of some odd experiences I've had, way back in my old pussy days back in high school. I couldn't resist trying my hand at it for a few reasons, though by now I just feel an odd- and pleasant- sense of attachment to this little concept floating in my brain.

There's a stunning amount of- depressingly contradictory- information out there about how this process is supposed to work. Thus far I've done two serious 15 minute sessions of personality regarding my nascent pussy, and I am going to be trying some visualization instead tonight. Figure that spare amounts of personality here and there ought to keep her core/backbone intact, whilst she grows and develops.

Does your cat welcome you when you come home (https://i.imgur.com/kmRoNQf.jpg)?

Mine is usually waiting at the front gate, sometimes even outside on the street. I suspect she can hear me approaching even from inside the house and then rushes outside. Cat also knows the sound of the car which can be a bit troublesome as she has ran out on the street and jumped in front of my car on some occasions. Honking has shown to be very effective against such dangerous behavior. Cats don't like to be honked at.

Yes he's like. Mraaw and headbutts and I pet him and he waits until I follow him to his kitty tower so he can scratch it and I pet him some more. Then I sit on the bed and he jumps on the bed and purrs and headbutts, so I scratch him.

Cat has been on fire several times, smells terrible but luckily there were no injuries. The fur is thick. Still hasn't learned anything from it and thinks all sorts of flames are fascinating. Generally you're right but the cats in my area are nearly semi-feral animals that can and will go wherever they please. Can't lock them in and create a safe space for them, they have to be able to deal with the harsh real world out there. They're free, and freedom is dangerous.

Well that's completely on you. You can teach a cat to stay indoors and provide them what they need, like exercise and activity. Because hey, every time they get hurt, it could have been prevented and it's your fault for letting something that doesn't seem to understand things like consequences to roam around freely.

You're the hero cats need and the one they deserve, Sands.

My cats just got extra pets on Christmas because there were more people. If they were inside catterinos I'm sure they would have knocked some things over and attacked some feet, though. At least the young one would have.

Tink, the aging white one, though? No. His time is past. A long time ago he was all like hey new cat for now you are raised inside until the hunger for the wild lands takes you. Stare into my eyes through this glass door, and learn my ways. And then he did and learned exactly how to be the most needy cat ever and for one Christmas, I believe, was an inside cat and he scratched things and rolled on things and probably smelled like cinnamon. My guess, anyway, not sure if he was already outside last year.

The young one is getting his first winter coat, though. His tail is so fluffy and he's becoming fat, it's absolutely wonderful. The old cat just.. Put his winter coat on a couple years ago and never took it off.

Toast doesn't insist on landing the butter side down, we just carry it at at a height that pretty much always causes it to fall down that way if we drop it: if you carried it or manipulated it butter side down, it would fall butter side up. If you're very tall, you wouldn't have the problem because the bread has enough time to flip over the other way.

Cats need enough time to be able to flip onto their legs, too. They also need enough time to brace for impact, which doesn't make the highest floors the most dangerous for cats. The lower floors tend to be worse, because the drop is high enough for the cat to sustain damage, but not high enough for the body to prepare itself and mitigate damage.

Did you rub her cheeks and make her purr? What is the best place to give cat a good scratch?
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: waffles on April 14, 2016, 12:19:07 PM
When her cheeks were rubbed she assumed a position like in picture 2 and stayed there until rubs ceased, at which point she'd assume a position like in picture 3, like "where are the rubs?" Scratching the chin is fine but I like scratching around the shoulder area, between the shoulder blades or on one shoulder. Cat always likes that.

Drool is just love in a liquid form.
But if cats drool, isn't that abnormal? (http://www.pethealthnetwork.com/cat-health/cat-diseases-conditions-a-z/why-do-cats-drool-its-never-normal)
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Sands on April 19, 2016, 09:05:26 AM
There is a difference between drooling for no apparent reason and drooling because of some kind of stimulus (food, under the chin rubs that will probably make even you drool if you try it on yourself, kneading etc.).

Cats can take the form of every tetris piece and match into the available space perfectly. Though I often wonder why they don't choose a more comfortable position.

Have you ever tried to wash (http://hnng.moe/f/CeT) cat?
I tried after cat rolled in dogshit on the street.
It didn't go very well...

I've heard from several people that their cats actually enjoy bathing but I am yet to see that.
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Sands on June 04, 2016, 08:40:45 AM
You do it very gently.

I wouldn't lower a cat in a tub of water, just fill something with warm water and transport it to a cat you hold in place with another hand. Close the door and let cat wander around too if you can't hold them, do this where you don't mind things getting wet like in the bathroom. Protecting your own arms is a good idea. And be calm.
Title: Re: Cats

Sounds good in theory but I doubt that cat would just play along.
(http://hnng.moe/f/Cos)

And no, sticking a cat in a tub of water really isn't the smartest idea. Rather suicidal.
Nowadays I just lock them out until they've cleaned themselves. It's strange, most cats here barely mind rain and often stay outside until they are completely soaked. But heaven forbid if I drip a bit of warm water onto them. Cats are weird.

Title: Re: Cats

Everyone at my place has finally decided we want a cat but we're not sure what kind

I want a munchkin cat but two of the other guys think they look retarded or some shit, so idunno.

All I do know is that I should probably be the one to get it, as my brother and I are going to be looking for a new place in four or five months and I want cat to be with me

We want something semi-young, but probably not a kitten. Something from a shelter, if I can bring myself to step into one without crying because I can't adopt them all.

Hopefully a super lovey cuddly cat that can purr purr purr while I pet it and watch tv.
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Sands on June 09, 2016, 09:06:44 AM
I really dislike munchkins just like how I dislike flat-faced cats: I don't want to introduce problems cats normally wouldn't have to cats. Nature has already made them perfect!!!!

If you want a shelter cat, you probably don't want to be thinking of a breed anyway. Unless it's very common where you live for people to abandon their potentially very expensive pedigree cats. Sometimes cats (and other animals) are abandoned because they have issues, so you should try to figure out why that particular cat got there in the first place.

Sounds like you probably want a pretty low energy cat that is affectionate. It can be hard to properly see how affectionate a cat would be in shelter conditions where there's lots of people who might not be able to spend a lot of time with the cats to socialize, but if there's a particular cat that likes to greet and hang out with with the humans that do come to look at them, that might be a good place to start searching.

Though many cats will start being different once you earn their trust. Also, if you start looking for younger cats, remember that 4 months is around the time when any respectable breeder would give out their kittens. Avoid anyone that is willing to give you cats when they're like, say, 8 weeks old. Or EDUCATE them if they're not breeders and they had whoopsie babies and have no idea about cats.

Cat is fine.
Has been stung before because we just have to hunt everything that moves.

(http://hnng.moe/f/Gpu)

And so I am proud to report that cat has maimed yet another crow and dragged it into the living room. Well at least that's how I see the story. Didn't witness the incident but unless the crow came in through the pet door, spontaneously lost most of its feathers and died I see no other plausible explanation than to blame it on the cat.

I think it's a good time to make a list of all animals cat has ever encountered:

killed
various species of mice
rat
vole
shrew
bat
swift
wren
sparrow
goldfinch
chaffinch
robin
starling
crow
pidgeon
lizard
toad
dragonfly
various species of butterflies and moths
bumblebee
wasp
various species of spiders

chased away
human
dog
cat
marten

ignored
hedgehog
hare

chased by
human
dog
cat
blackbird
wasp

I'm not making this stuff up, cat is old and has probably killed a lot more during her life but that's what I remember.

We even have bigger critters here on the outskirts of Munich like badgers, foxes, wild boars and even wolves
though I've never seen one in contrast to the others that are quite abundant
But I dunno how cat interacts with them. At least none were dragged in through the cat door until now. But one can always dream, eh?

Cat had a clogged nose and couldn't purr for several days, only made scary wheezing sounds. Was about to take her to the vet but things have improved greatly in the past 2 days. Purring is back to normal.
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Sands on December 07, 2016, 05:35:29 AM
Good. Well, cats don't really purr through the nose so that probably wasn't it, but cats can get sick anyway. And it's good to be on the lookout if it doesn't get better soon.

Especially if you don't vaccinate.
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Bernd on December 12, 2016, 07:38:05 PM
I could probably buy a car from what I have spent at the vet over cat's long life. But then again I don't need another car, I need cat.
Technically you're right, still it seems cats cant purr properly if you obstruct the nose. At least the 3 I've tested.

Anyway, cat seems to be fine again. Has stepped on my keyboard today, opening over 9000 browser instances.
Who needs malware when you have cat?

Excellent work cat.

Making sure to get a healthy cat (as far as you can know, hard to do with rescues but legit breeders will test their kittens for most common stuff), feeding them a good diet and making sure they get vaccinated against whatever is an issue in your country helps a lot. I don't really spend all that much on the vet bills even though I go get the cat's teeth cleaned every few years.

Then again I probably spend a lot on the food. :>

Brought a cardboard box from the supermarket.
I do that once in a while as it is the perfect present for cat besides food

(http://www.hnng.moe/f/LHU)

Cat hopped in before I even put it on the floor and now spends most of the day inside.
The box has a lid with a rectangular opening just wide enough to get in and several small holes on all sides for looking and pawing through.

While already awesome for one cat, the real fun starts when neighbour cat comes over and one is lurking in the box and the other outside. Both are old but they behave like kittens while playing, jumping in and out. It does escalate once in a while but generally they get along well.

I think I would have thrown cat and mouse out after half a minute.

Man, I hate these squeaky toys.
Some years ago the neighbours got their dog a 'squeaky' bone, but it didn't sqeak, it yelled like a grown man in pain. Really WTF? Who invents such shit? Sounded like someone being tortured in their garden. I mean at first it was really funny but after a while the noise was just horrible. Luckily the thing didn't last long.

Cat has the christmas tree as a toy with lots of decorations to bat around. Interestingly in all my life no cat has ever attempted to climb the tree though we always had huge ones, not some pleb-tier shrub. And by huge I mean more than 3m. But cats prefer to lurk underneath.

Cats make sure I pet them, if necessary by force, nose-poking and pawing at me if I stop.

I stepped on a dead mouse today.
It made a nasty crunching sound and turned into a comically flat 2D shape, eyes still looking at me. Good thing it was outside and I was wearing shoes. Should have taken pics but I only thought of it after burying it. Cat had paraded with a caught mouse yesterday but disappeared through the cat door and came back without it.

Some years ago I had dormice under the roof. They're unbelievably cute (http://hnng.moe/f/RTW) but make a lot of noise for their size.

Dogs can be cute too, but in the cat thread I r8 it heresy!

Neighbor cat was busy stalking something in the high grass and bushes today.
At first I thought he was hunting for insects but he was combing a small area for about 2 hours, extremely focused. At some point a visibly exhausted mouse ran by me, having evaded the cat who was some meters away, and hid in a corner stacked with pots and gardening tools.
Neighbor cat left but returned with my cat a short time later. After a bit of surveillance they had found and literally cornered the poor mouse from 2 sides and were quietly observing the corner. For at least another hour.
Eventually neighbor cat made a small leap, I heard a squeak and he was carrying off the mouse as he went home.

I've never observed them hunt so thoroughly, was interesting. You really can't say they're not doing their job. So dedicated! Cat brought another mouse in the evening, now is sleeping on my lap.

What's best award for cat?
(http://hnng.moe/f/SP4)

Today cat got thoroughly wet while I was watering the garden because she has far too much confidence in me. Just like with getting stepped on. Cat assumes I see her and certainly would not harm her so there's no need to move out of the way. But often I doesn't. Cat is well camouflaged and loves to sit in obscure places - or right behind me. Also cat doesn't understand I can't see equally well in the dark.

However cat apparently understands very well that such unfortunate events are accidents and not intended so she isn't mad at me. And I step on cat a lot.

Not bad!
We should never forget that cats are dangerous predators no matter how harmless they look.
Some years ago the neighbors had built an outdoor habitat for their childrens bunnies and guinea pigs. It consisted of a fenced piece of meadow with a smaller rabbit barn made of wood and mesh wire as a shelter. Padded with hay and wood shavings, really cozy. Soon the number of bunnies appeared to have doubled until I realized that three neighbor cats had taken over the shelter and were sleeping in the hay, blocking the entrance for the original inhabitants so they had to stay outside. It was a rabbit barn stuffed full of cats. Especially the guinea pigs were pissed and tried to force their way in but the cat blocking the entrance had no interest in moving. Dunno how this was resolved in the end. I guess the cats eventually got bored and found a new place but every now and then one could be seen sleeping inside as additional 'bunny'. My cat was also in there a couple of times, but apart from the gate-crashing no pig or bunny was ever harmed. And we have lots of predators that could easily have killed 'em all. So maybe having the cats around wasn't so bad after all.

Cat went missing a few days ago.
Was gone for 2 days and nights which is highly unusual when it's cold outside. I was really worried as cat rarely leaves the proximity of the house, usually staying in the garden or visiting the neighbors. But noone had seen her. First I thought I had locked her in some drawer, cupboard, the cellar or attic or something which does happen but that lead to nothing. So I went through the neighborhood in the early morning already fearing for the worst as cat is old. But cat was gone. After an hour I returned home where cat was already waiting in front of the door. No idea where she was but I'm glad she's back.
Now having a purring contest with neighbor cat, both sitting on the couch next to me.

If you have an outdoor cat, one day they won't come back. You might be able to find them, but they won't be alive.

The truth about cats and dogs is that they die. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZ5PRjVe3dw)

And yet no cat I know has died outside. All at home or the vet. But enough of sad stories.
Awkward cat poses!

Most frequent I see is the one in the middle. Caterpillar or slug style. And the one below lying twisted on the back, often legs spread out in different positions, mouth opened. Looks scary as fuck.

I tend to have the roadkill position during summer when the floor is both cool in the shade and warm where the sun hits it. Sometimes he'll stretch on the edge to get both at the same time. What a beast.

Neighbor is on holiday so neighbor cat is staying with me most of the time, dwelling in a small cardboard box like Diogenes in his barrel.
Actually it was said to be a large ceramic jar (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pithos) as they didn't have barrels in ancient greece. The more you know.

He loves boxes even more than my cat who's mostly sleeping on the couch or in my bed now.
We also had the first snow of the season, I feel cats are baffled every time that happens like seeing it for the first time. Racing around in the snow like crazy until they realize it's actually cold and wet, then shaking paws and running back inside.

Boxes are great. You should probably add more boxes.

Not that life with several cats isn't hilarious.
Yesterday cat was lurking on own tail, quietly observing its movements
Neighbor cat comes by, also starts lurking at cat's tail
Finally bats at tail
Cat smacks him in the face causing him to backflip and race out through the cat door
Cat continues lurking on tail

I've been wondering, what if cat also has tupper and it is possessing tail?
Often it doesn't seem like cats are in control of their tails' movements.
Title: Re: Cats

Maybe cat just is bored and tail is the only source of amusement. I suggest more boxes and playtime.
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Bernd on December 25, 2017, 08:55:22 PM
Cat has a whole world to explore and several cat friends. But apparently tail is superior entertainment. Last time I tried to bait her with a string she gave me an unamused look like considering me a complete retard. as if tupper regularly doing that wasn't enough
So far cat has also ignored the tree and decided to occupy the box that contained the Christmas decorations. Getting old and lazy.

Yep.

Cats don't care about entertainment or boxes at the moment and are just asleep in my bed. Preferably on me. It's nice that they love me soo much but it does get creepy at some point. Not to mention uncomfortable.

You probably know the vid of ninja cat that comes closer every time you look but my cat is different. No time for such subtle moves, just full attack. If the prey is not vigilant it will be eaten.

I think both are actually really nice as long as you treat 'em with proper respect.

It's been extremely cold in the past week and cats are almost permanently inside - and on top of me. Even more than usual. Right now cat is tucked in between my laptop and my chest, neighbour cat beneath my left arm. Really comfy.

My grandmother gave me some cake she made, two palm-size pieces, neatly wrapped together with other stuff in a bag.
Placed the bag in a corner when I got home where it immediately caught cat's attention.
She wants to play in the bag maybe? No.

Within seconds cat dug out the cake, unwrapped it and happily started gobbling down one of the pieces. Until I realized what had happened and was able to wrestle the cake from her, half of the piece was already gone. My yelling and the loss of cake did not stop cat however, she just snatched the second piece and raced off into the garden.
The final result - first piece chewed beyond recognition, the second gone for good.
Cat had eaten 1.5 pieces, me 0

(https://imgoat.com/uploads/3c65c29742/107436.jpg)

I actually offered her the rest as well when she finally returned but cat refused. Cake is only good when properly stolen. So the birds got the leftovers.
And so ends another peaceful day at Bernd's place. I should make a cartoon out of this.

tl;dr
Cat steals food.
Does your cat steal food?
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Sands on April 27, 2018, 05:39:27 AM
No he's a good boy who doesn't really care for my food (and I don't leave MEAT alone because that's the only thing he might snatch if given the chance).

Unless I am eating something I tried to offer him earlier and he refused, like cheese. Then he suddenly wants a taste. I am fine with sharing a little.
Title: Re: Cats
Post by: Bernd on May 02, 2018, 05:30:57 PM
Yeah, I dunno...
Normally cat isn't interested in food, not even meat. But certain cakes, cookies and some fish need to be pillaged. But it only has happened very few times. Having cat nose or paw in my food however occurs daily. Just to make sure she really doesn't like it. But she's always especially nice and purring a lot afterwards so everything is forgiven.

Yesterday cat went tree climbing because bird.
Saw her going up a slender alley tree, despite her age moving up the stem like a gecko. There was a pigeon in the twigs about 3m above the ground and cat got surprisingly close before the bird realized the danger and escaped. As soon as it was gone however the mighty hunter turned into a clumsy bear that helplessly hung in the twigs and after a few unsuccessful attempts to turn around fell off the stem like a sack of potatoes. It was less then 2m and soft grass underneath so no danger but man, it didn't look graceful. Several people pointing and laughing didn't help either. Cat left the scene with ears folded backwards and didn't show up for some hours.

Right now the method of choice seems to be kneading me to death, even with the help of other cats. They've always loved kneading on me and I'm used to it but the amount of claws used increased recently. Scares most people unfamiliar with cats shitless when the cute kitty on their lap starts rhythmically extending and retracting claws all the way out. Well and it does hurt, they're needle sharp and effortlessly penetrate several layers of clothing. My upper body looks like I've been through some SM session and quite frankly I have.

Cat wanted to occupy a sunspot but 2 other cats had the same idea. This lead to some half-hearted hising and other angry cat noises but eventually they shared the sunspot together.
