Aw- did Sookie get returned? I didn’t know.
She did, she got returned something like two weeks after Terry did. The person who adopted her moved and left her with a friend, I think, and Sookie and the friend’s cat didn’t get along. The friend tried to make it work for a year, but eventually gave up. I’m glad that the person who returned her knew that she could return her to Challenger’s House!
We don’t remember Sookie being that cross eyed – or is it just the picture?
No, she’s as super duper cross-eyed as she looks in that picture. I don’t actually know that I’d even call it cross-eyed, since one pupil is at 5:00 and the other is at 11:00! In any case, she seems to see just fine, and I think it just adds to her charm. 🙂
This has nothing to do with L&H (sorry), but I watched this girl’s youtube and she has a Ragdoll, and I’m shocked Ragdolls are 30 pounds???
The kitties will look like mouse next to a Ragdoll, no?
Have you ever had thoughts of having like a Siamese, Ragdoll etc.. well, not that you’ve got room for one :p
I actually didn’t know that ragdolls get that big!
I have never had thoughts of having a Siamese or Ragdoll, because I can just about guarantee you that if I got one as a foster, my first thought would be a relieved “This one’s going to get adopted super-fast, we don’t have to worry!”
Are Stevie and Lita seesters from the same mother, or seesters from different mothers? I’m sure it’s been mentioned, but I can’t remember or find that bit of info.
Stevie, Lita and Pat are seesters from the same mother, and Lizzy and Molly are seesters from the same mother (but a different mother than Stevie, Lita and Pat’s mother, of course.)
Robyn, do any of the permanent residents drool when they get overwhelmed with the loving’? I adopted a kitten a couple months ago and she turns out to be a drooler.
YES. Maxi will drool buckets, Kara is a bit of a drooler, and Jake will drool, too. I think that’s it, but I could be missing a drooler. Oh! Miz Poo is a drooler. When she’s not sneezing, that is.
No one’s outside? Not even Maxi? We’re going to need stalker pictures!
I actually haven’t noticed Corbie and Jake stalking Maxi, now that you mention it! Maybe after all these years, they’re starting to realize that she’s not a stranger!
This talk of pilling cats reminds me that we CANNOT give Terry his eye drops. I am thinking his other family must not have been giving them to him because Terry is just not having it. Mike and I have both tried to do it – separately and together. Terry summons the strength of 1000 cats and we end up with the drops on his cheeks or on my leg. Anyone got tips for eye drops?
GD said: Put it at the inner corner of his eye and squeeze. It will roll in. Easier and less shocking to the kitty!
Rebecca said: This! Letting it roll it rather than dropping it right on the eye has helped us give 2-3x daily drops to our resistant cat. Still not easy, but if one person holds her, and the other does the drops (with a drop at the ready, no waiting for it to drip out), it goes okayish.
Will the Hexbugs travel well on carpet? If so, I may need one!
No, they pretty much come to a dead stop on carpet, and just lay there and vibrate. Which the kittens seem to find equally appealing, so it might be worth a try!
Hey – can some (non-lazy) kind soul find the link to the playset for me? I could search but then I would get sucked into the cute kitty black hole and I REALLY have to get the grocery shopping done today.
Elaine said: I got that at The Lakeside Collection. I just checked and they do not list it on their site anymore but it might come back. Their site is Lakeside.com.
Regarding the Hexbug cat toys, Kar mentioned in the comments yesterday that she’s found them at Target on sale for $1.48, and there were quite a few at both of the Targets she was at this week. You can’t beat that price, so it might be worth stopping by your local Target. I stopped by both of my local Targets yesterday and couldn’t find any, so I’m sure it just depends on your Target.
My little Felix exhibited some urinary tract difficulties last week. But the vet couldn’t do a urinalysis on Sat because his bladder was empty, and he was acting better anyway. He gave me some amoxicillin (that’s been fun!) and the little booger seems to be doing just fine. BUT – as it appears he might be prone to them, and as I keep reading everywhere I look that dry food is not as good for them as wet food, and that he needs more water in his diet as a preventative measure – I am switching him to a completely wet diet. (Ack.) To that end – can you guys recommend some of the brands that you think are fairly decent quality food? Without being exorbitantly high priced? I’m going to start ordering from Chewy.com but would like some recommendations of middle priced, decent wet foods. Thanks!
Please chime in, I’d like to see what y’all recommend!
Those girls were NOT happy about being at Petsmart when I left them yesterday afternoon. I expected Lizzy and Molly to go straight into the litter boxes to hide, but they seemed more curious than scared, at least at first. Stevie immediately burrowed under a cat bed, and Lita was right behind her. Pat went into the litter box to hide. Hopefully they’ll relax quickly!
Fingers crossed for adoptions this weekend!
So this is nothing exciting – I put the Dropcam on the floor of my bedroom a few weeks ago when we were having an issue. The issue has been resolved, but I left the camera where it was, because I kind of like looking on the recorded video to see how often the cats wander past the camera. (A lot. They wander in and out of my room a LOT.) Jake happened to realize that the camera was there the other day, and in his sniffing of the camera, moved it so that you can actually see his daytime napping spot off in the distance. Then he wandered off again. Silly boy.
2014: I just love it so very much when cats sit there with the end of their tongue sticking out, all “Wha? Wha tho funny? Why you laughin’?”
2013: I should rename him Baleful Beans.
2012: I went a little astray from my original idea, but when I was done, I laughed and laughed like a big dork.

2007: I think it’s possible that Newt, who is Not Our Cat, might end up becoming an inside cat. (HA – ya THINK, 2007 Robyn? You really think he might? Here’s an update: he spends 99.999% of his time inside, piled up in an overstuffed cat bed like a big ol’ slug.)
