He's so traumatized by riding in the car and by going to the vet that I want to find out what's wrong with him before I take him there for another "He looks fine. But, bring him back for shots and . . . and. . . " from the vet.

    As I've mentioned before, you really should check for traveling vets then. If your cat is so traumatized by the trip, it will be so worth it. They are more expensive than visiting your own vet. But check-ups are very important.

    Hmmm...I have diabetes and I haven't done this.
    That just struck me so funny! (not that Tom Tom has diabetes, but that he wipes his dirty butt on the floor!!)

    I hope you can figure out what's going on. I'll second (or third) the nasty smell the anal sac produces. P-U.

    Quick question though - do you get your cat groomed? I know my pooch sometimes scratches a lot (and does the butt-drag) when her hair gets cut too short. Just trying to think of something that can help!!

    Never had him groomed. Maybe we'll think about that.

    I cracked up at the butt-drag thing

    Can someone, ANYONE, please explain what would POSSIBLY taste good in a bathroom garbage? Qtips? Tissues? Why is it that my beloved Abbie insists on eating the bathroom garbage? YUCK. Blech. Barf. I just don't get it. Ever accidentally get a napkin in your mouth when you're wiping your mouth? We all know that tastes gross. Why would you actually want to eat tissues???? Most of the time, a dog's life is the ONE to have. But this defies logic.

    It's a good thing she's cute

    I HATE finding the bathroom garbage strewn down the hallway when I get home. I always keep the bathroom trash can up on the counter but my cleaning person sometimes puts it on the floor. The dog can't resist it. Ick.

    I can't answer any of that to you.. maybe you can answer why my cat LOVES plastic? Plastic bags are like a cat treat to him....

    A few years back I found a cat living on the roof of my office. He was the cutest little black and white kitty. I brought him home. He was a bit on the wild side since he was an outdoor cat. One night I woke up to go to the bathroom to find the cat and the ENTIRE trash bad on my bed. He was sound a sleep... sleeping with all the trash.

    Did somebody knock me out or drug me or something??? How did I not hear him bring the trash onto my bed?

    I can't answer the question, but I'm thinking my terrier, Maggie could, but she's not telling. Like Mariner, I put the trashcan up out of her reach, on the edge of the bathtub. It's interesting because the kitchen trash holds no appeal, but the bathroom...apparently it's considered gourmet.

    Sweetdreams, that's hysterical.

    sweetdreams,
    That is so something that would happen to me (sleeping through the cat dragging the garbage onto the bed). I can just envision the cat curled up and snoozing away with the garbage.
