So happy that Frankie continues to do well! Does he put up with being kissed?!
He does put up with being kissed! When it comes to the humans, you can do just about anything to that boy that you want, although if you pet him too vigorously for too long, he’ll get worked up and bunny kick your arm. He gives lots of warning signals before it comes to that, though.
Frankie’s tabbyswirls are awesome… I always forget; is that called ‘classic’ or ‘mackerel’ tabby markings?
That swirly bullseye pattern is a classic tabby marking. I always call them cinnamon bun tabbies, though.
OK, I’m sorry to have to ask… What product do you use when there is a little spraying (jealousy) going on? I adopted Red three years ago and kinda forgot he likes to be the only one. I took my current cat Sam to meet him, everything OK. Well now in my dementia- I have brought home a new female kitten (now fixed, no idea of age) and we have a spraying problem. Also, Red has NEVER gone over our 5′ chain link fence and I found him on our front window sill!!! New female stray/feral according to neighbors. How do I clean up this mess inside house? I bought a black light flashlight and the urine staines are horrible. Hubs bought “Sunny and Henry Pet Stain & Odor Miracle” spray. I still see urine. Any ideas?
Thanks to all!
Susan at the Challenger’s House shelter recommends Thornell Cat Odor-Off, and that’s what I’ve been using lately. (Be aware that that link leads to a bottle of Odor-Off concentrate, which means you’ll need your own spray bottle to mix it in. It’s a decent sized bottle and lasts a long time.) I’m not super crazy about the smell of the Odor-Off itself, but that fades after a day or so.
I couldn’t resist that hoppity-bounce! Now in gif form for people who can’t watch youtube videos.
I love it!!
That is one of my all-time favorites!!
Earlier this week, I brought the kittens down to my room to explore (and to give Mercury a break), and let them stay for a couple of hours before I returned them to the foster room. No uncles were present, which was probably a good thing, because I think a trip to another room PLUS meeting a strange cat would have blown their little minds.
Yesterday, they made another trip to my room, and I didn’t realize it at first, but Stefan was asleep in a bed on the floor. I got a video of the kittens discovering him (you’ll see that in the next section.) They floofed up and then retreated to the other side of the room. I went to get a plate of canned food and the camera, and when I came back into the room I’m pretty sure they’d forgotten that Stefan was in the room.
I could hear someone sniffing loudly at the door, so I went to see who it was. It was Dewey, and when I opened the door, he sashayed right in.
And then Dewey asked to leave the room. I’m sure he’ll be friends with the kittens eventually, once they calm down!
Videos! In the first one, they stumble upon a sleeping Uncle Stefan, who just wants to sleep, kids. The looks of disbelief on their faces just crack me UP.
And in the second, the kittens surround Uncle Stefan, and they’re ready to rumble.
