    We lost Bella, our Blue-point Siamese due to Renal failure in early December. She was a wonderful, beautiful cat and she will be sorely missed.

    To close this with something brighter, here is the newest addition to my family, her name is Ellie and she is a Pembroke Welsh Corgi. She is tiny, the runt of the litter at only 2.5 lbs. Her siblings are all twice her size and weight. She is growing nicely now though and has adopted us as her pack. it's been wonderful to watch the relationship grow between each family member and her. She is a true joy to have in our home.

    Cute with a capital C!

    Pretty pissed off with mum right now who thinks that cat fur is a threat so the cats have to stay outside. Never mind that Enya (the human cat) has no allergies, adores the cats, they love her, and the air pollution in this city is off the chart (which is the real threat). Windows can be open but cats can’t be in. I don’t get women.

    Aw, hopefully you can convince her to eventually let the little fur baby in!

    Shhhhhh! Furry one is snoozing in the spare room. ;)

    Other, big fury one, has slinked off and is nowhere to be seen. But I’ll let her into the guest room too when she comes around.

    His name is Wendall. He is quite the character.

    Vet Appt went well, extremely happy with this place too, very highly rated. Not your typical place either, it's actually full-on Ranch that focuses on Equestrian, Dog/Cat care, very popular in our area and now I see why.

    I was curious to see how much weight she gained since I took over feeding her, Started mixing good quality organic Wet food in with her Kibble (also good quality) about 1.5 weeks ago and she already went from 2.5 to 4.5 pounds.

    Still the runt but maybe she'll catch up. Couple more pics, had to post the (nearly Mandatory) Corgi Butt-Shot:lol:

    Meet the newest member of our family, Chloë

    She is a Lilac Point Siamese / Ragdoll mix. She is a very sweet girl, docile personality. She is timid but is coming out of her shell more each day. She started playing with her toys yesterday. She purrs practically on contact and has been a snuggler since the drive home. Has not met the dog yet, we're taking it slow.

    It was brief, but this happened over the weekend. They are getting a little more used to each other each day.

    My former doggo, Star, was immediately drawn to Steven, my Turkish Parisian. Tentatively they became friends but it took a lot of “kitty boxing” before Steve accepted Star as a room mate.

    I know this is a post a picture thread but I wanted to ask if anybody had any experience relocating cats? I’m trying to bring the 4 outdoor cats that I take care of to my new location. According to google that’s dangerous?

    Outdoor cats that belong to you and live at your place, or feral cats that tolerate you for food? Can you handle them, like a true pet, or are they just around for the freebies? If the latter, they should stay where they are. They're part of a community, and know their place in that community. Relocating makes them invaders, and the "owners" of the territory they get moved to may be... intolerant.

    @wfooshee Outdoor cats that lived in my yard/garden area. They would hang out there most of the day but also have the freedom to roam around the neighborhood. I can handle them like pets since 3 out of the 4 cats were kittens and under my care. So I'm assuming relocating wouldn't be deadly to them right?

    So they're not feral, but free-roaming, and they don't come indoors at all, right?

    I don't really know... I've always been one that a pet cat lives indoors, never goes outside, so maybe I'm not really the one to advise... Folks with cats that roam back and forth risk diseases being brought in, and of course injury to their cats from other cats, and predators. My girlfriend's neighborhood had a dog pack a couple of years ago that almost wiped out the outdoor cat population in her area.

    If you can get them transported, they might be happy wherever they end up. It depends on whether or not you're their primary source of sustenance and care, or if they just hang around sometimes and wander off most times.

    RIP Lizzy. My little best friend. Lizzy was loved by everyone, even the cats loved her. I remember the day we got her I was so happy. She wasn’t just a bearded dragon, she was my best friend. I would come home from a bad day at school and she would cheer me up. It hurts like hell that she’s no longer with us physically, but her spirit will always be with me.

    My kitties. Been here before, but it's been a bit, so new pics.

    Chipsie: no wonder she's so lovable, just look at all those hearts!
    [​IMG]

    Her collar matches her nose. This is important to princesses...
    [​IMG]

    Fluffy tail!!!! She has thick, bunny-soft fur, and the longest tail I've ever seen on a cat. It's longer than my foot, and I'm a size 12. In the picture above, that black mass beside her is her tail...
    [​IMG]


    When I come home from work, she's at the door greeting me. She follows me around the house for 5 or 10 minutes, demanding scratches, and I can't do ANYTHING else until she's finally happy and moves off. Once that's done, she's through with me. She'll jump on the bed at night and sleep with me, but at the farthest corner of the bed. She won't come and site on my lap, but she'll tolerate for a couple of minutes if I pick her up and hold her. Otherwise, all she needs from me is that first five or ten minutes when I get home.


    Now Mocha. She's a bit on the rotund side. She's also been around quite a while. We got her as an adult rescue in 2004, no idea how old she is. Anyway, she won't sit on my lap. I can pick her up and put her there and she'll move off to sit next to me. She does like to cuddle, though!
    [​IMG]

    If she's not actually cuddling, she still likes to be able to touch me.
    [​IMG]

    Mocha always sleeps with me, right up against me. She knows to move if I stir, because I have rolled over on her in my sleep, not knowing she was there. She is always up for a head bunt, and she loves belly rubs. So Mocha is the attention seeker, and she graciously grants Chipsie those five minutes when I get home.

    The cats are not friends. They don't fight, but they don't do anything together. They won't even eat together. They'll pass each other, and pause as they approach, take a couple of steps, eyeing each other the whole time, and go about their business peacefully, but they don't like being near each other. Still, once in a great while, I catch them sniffing noses for a second or two.

    Some shots of Mallow, who's much happier around the house ever since her dominant sister passed on. 20200330_125551.jpg 20200324_104227_01.jpg

    I don't even want to know what that giant blue thing is in the floor.

    Probably the same thing I told my wife it looked like when she brought it home.

    And no, I can't compete with that!

    Carl has now been with us for a year now.
    Our family couldn’t have asked for a better dog.

    Moving a cat is the most stressful thing for them. Take all precautions to ensure they are comfortable and not too stressed.
    If they’re allowed inside it’s best to keep them in for a few days so they get used to their new home, otherwise they might just attempt to find their way back to the previous home.

    They may disappear for a time while they adjust to new surroundings but they usually reappear eventually.

    They are very good at finding hiding places, but they are also good at realizing they need food and water and a litterbox. Eventually.

    My girlfriend came to my place for a weekend and brought a cat that was undergoing medications (so she couldn't leave it for a pet sitter,) and the cat disappeared in my house. It got under a dresser, even though the dresser was only maximum 1.5 inches from the wall by the time it cleared the baseboards. All we can think of is it jumped down the back. We did have to rescue it after panicking for a while, then hearing it mewing under there.

    That’s the answer I got from everyone else I asked too :( I left the kitties at the old location and visit daily to feed them food. It’s been hard with the quarantine situation but I’m trying as much as I can to make them feel like nothing has changed.

    I wish I could take them in but my dad is severely immunocompromised.

    I found BunBuns in her favorite sleeping position, the wall facesmash.
