Max…how do we explain to the foster momma cat that all her yelling about “I need a boyfriend” isn’t going to accomplish anything here. Of course, there’s Junior, but he is nootered so that doesn’t count. Plus he is probably afraid of her. Can we leave her a sign on her door or something? Cause she is LOUD
Well, I don’t think you’re going to be able to silence her for a while. She’s upset and feeling unloved. This may be one of those “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em” kind of things. Every time she yells I NEED A BOYFRIEND yell back WE KNOW. Only say it a lot. WE KNOW WE KNOW WE KNOW! Eventually she’ll get just as tired of hearing you as you are of hearing her, and she’ll stop. It should only take, oh, 10 days to 2 weeks.
HAY MAX WHY ISNT THERE MOUSE FLAVORED CAT FOODS?
Probably because mice don’t taste very good, and who would eat one if they didn’t have to? Aside from the taste, there’s not a lot of meat on them and to get one good can it would probably take 62 mice, and that’s just not cost effective. If you flip it over, 1 cow probably can make 6,982 cans of food. Plus, I think the cows have people who auction them off, and the mice have a union rep named Mickey who protects their interests.
I’d rather have fishy or beefy foods. Mice are kinda =blech= and I think Mickey knows where I live, so…
All righty Max. What’s the worst thing that ever happened to you?
Hear me out. I know people think he’s this adorable little black furball, but unless you’ve followed my blog for over 13 years, you might not know that he damn near killed me when the people brought him home. He came bearing the gift of a URI that he got over in a week, but passed along to me and I was uncomfortably close to dying. And since then he’s just been a royal PITA, and lately he’s been outright mean.
We have Feliway thingies all over the house and that’s helped quite a bit, but he still stalks me and I’m honestly kind of afraid sometimes because I never know when he’s going to pop out and jump on me, and when he jumps on me he bites hard. Y’all can still go on liking him, because when he’s not being a spastic vicious maniac, he’s kinda cute. But yeah, he is truly the worst thing that’s ever happened to me.
Max, hoping you can help. My cat, Nigel, is (and I know this sounds weird) licking the roof of his mouth. At first I thought he had a hair stuck, but he kept doing it. I checked his mouth and I don’t see anything in there, nothing like stuck fur or even odd bumps. He’s not doing it nonstop, but I noticed it 6-7 times today. Any ideas? I’d call the vet but they’re closed this weekend.
He might be slightly nauseated. Sometimes when kitties are queasy, they do this. Kinda like he’s trying to push something out? Keep an eye on him; if he’s eating and drinking, you can wait and see, but if he’s still doing it tomorrow, call the stabby guy. Of course, if he starts hurling or isn’t drinking, you might want to find an urgent care vet.
(Note: Nigel’s mom and I talked on FB so she already knows what my answer was. He’s drinking and peeing like normal and scarfed his lunch down today, so she’s not too worried…but I ran the question in case someone else has a roof-of-the-mouth licking kitty…)
Got a question for me?
