Years ago my Vet told me that when cats age, the 3 things that tend to befall them are:
3. kidney disease - CRF
The thyroid is highly treatable in cats. Good Luck to Miss Sashay.
Thanks for the good wishes. I also have to keep in mind that she is 15, so I am prepared for just about anything.
Best wishes for Ms. Sashay. You know how to reach me if need be.
Well wishes to Miss Sashay.
A simple loud No! was not working to stop new kitten's bad behavior. I added a stream of water from a squirt gun to the No! and got amazing results. Now when he hears No!, he stops, squints and blinks his eyes. :laugh It works. Thanks all
With my cats, I don't even need to actually use the quirt bottle any more. I can just shake it and they stop what they're doing!
My Maine Coon, Dez, is known for her playful, silly personality and her love of water. She shoots off when I squirt water at her, tearing out of the room and, quick as a flash, she is back with this silly look on her face like "Do it again!!" Her head pops up like it's on a Jack-In-The-Box spring. Anymore, I don't even have to squirt; she hears me picking up the water pistol and is "outta here"...with the "Kentuck Derby run"! She's even getting bolder, doing the "I hear it, but I'm not gonna run until I see if you're really going to shoot it!"....watching me closely. "Big-Eyed Betty" moments, I call them. The other gurls, other than drinking it, don't want any encounters with water, at all. If squirted, they make it obvious that their dignity has been deeply scratched. :lol
Of course, sometimes I use it just to get some mess started in the house. They could use the exercise! :winkgrin
Just when I thought I had heard it all!
Cops Put Squeeze On Alleged Python Biter In Calif. (VIDEO)
When I was at the vet with Miss Sashay (whom is feeling/acting better, by the way when she's not trying to hide from her evening dose of medication), I witnessed a huge 140 pound dog climb up into his owner's lap and sit, facing his owner, with his hind legs on either side of his owner's lap, leaning into his owner....like a little kid might do! His owner said that this is normal behavior for his "baby"! The owner, who was not a small man, looked small when he was being sat upon!! :lol:lol
I used to have a friend with a HUGE Great Dane named Robert--he would actually back up and get his back legs and behind up into your lap and leave his front end standing on the floor :lol
My Katie would sit in my lap facing me with her paws on my shoulders and put her head down between us-I sure miss those hugs!!
