My ancestors edition. Post domestic & wild cats.
Does anyone here have an experience with cat and budgies in the same house?
>>3644018My grandma has two budgies and a cat. The cat completely ignores them, most likely because shes gotten very old as of recently.
do cats like fireplaces and space heaters?
>>3644236cats like warmth and warm places
>>3644066Does time not progress linearly at grandmas house?

Panther in the forest
These two lil gals are starting to turn into real killers and fans of Star Trek. Makin' dad proud.
>>3644382Is that a real tiger?
Does anyone know whats wrong with my cat? Ive cleaned the wound now and hope it goes away but i dont know what it is
>>3644398No, just Cathy and Barb.
>>3644382The one on the left looks like a pure European wildcat.
>>3644402Probably scratched itself while itching, make sure your cat has things to grind its nails down or cut them yourself.
>>3644476She is definitely the more wild of the two. She isn't open to pets yet like her sister, but they've only been here for 5 days.
I just got my cats spayed. Should I let them out of their cage? They're kind of wobbly still and I don't want them to get hurt or pop their stitches but they're at the doors wanting to get out.
>>3644839Let them out but supervise them in case they try to jump. They'll probably just wobble to thir favourite spot and then sleep for hours.
>leave painting stuff in the open>see thisDoes my cat have autism?
>>3644960He probably does
I just got a cat today and I also started feeling like shit today. I've spent hours with my friends cats and never felt a thing. Had zero problems at the shelter surrounded by cats and playing with them. Now I feel like fucking death after spending barely a few hours with him. I'm gonna be so fucking mad if it turns out I'm allergic.
>>3644993Yep, that's an allergy.Or, maybe......I sure hope it's not the parasites!
>>3644350>using surveillance cameras that rival a cats visionthey have a fucking spotlight on it lol

Cat struggles for 2 days with making a shit.Same diet as always for past 5 years, so it's not that. Wasn't fed anything unusual either. I can't take her to a vet until tomorrow, but she visibly has problem with shitting. On the other hand, the stool is pretty lose - but not diarrhea - so it's not lack of water.Cat is on wet food diet. Already checked, they didn't change the content of the cans or anything like that.Suggestions?
Would have liked to have heard back from the anon who adopted pic related.
I steal pics from /kot/ and send them to my gf and noone can stop me
>>3645262Thanks, now I won't post anymore pics
>>3645262But what will you do when she asks where are you getting all those cats?
600€ for removal of two dead back teeth too much?
>>3644993Maybe it's a coincidence anon. Better COVID than cat allergy, right? Lol
>>3645232Don't do anything by your own initiative, see your vet first and they will tell what's better to do. I hope she'll get better soon.
Friend made fun of me for naming her Koren. Actually wasn't thinking of the cat from Dragon Ball, meant it like Koren Robinson.Anyway, this is my baby. I love her so fucking much
Dont want to make another thread for this. I am babysitting 2 cats for a friendThey are okay so far. >hiding in the closet>put their litter, food, and water and shirts friend gave us in there>have left them alone since then with the door open if they want to explore>still hidingI feel bad. I have owned a cat before and she got used to new places immediately. Is there anything else I can do to make these cats comfortable? Or just wait it out
hitIerina sleeps with me every night. sometimes she voluntarily put herself in a spooning position
>>3645289Its cheaper to get a new cat
I'm gonna bath hitlerina just to kill time for my own entertainment. It's late afternoon so I'll use a hair drier on her
>>3645625her name is Storm btw
>>3645627Tell me about storm. I why does she sit in the bowl
>>3645635she realized that she fits there perfectly.This cat's name is Calculator
She has been a total money pit since we got her. We've been sick free for about a month now so no more pills or vet visits for the moment.Id gladly have spent twice the amount on her. Her little face makes my day
>>3645289Dentists are expensive even for us humans. Search for other vets and compare the prices, if you are unsure.>>3645467Very cute, anon.>>3645478You're doing everything correctly, good job. No need to worry if they don't feel like exploring yet, it takes more times for some cats.>>3645663You're a great owner and she's a beautiful girl.
>>3645232Massage can also help. >>3645082>if only she would use the matTHIS damn problem>>3645488It's cheaper to get a new cat than to feed a cat.
My cat's penis dribbles when I massage and scratch him. Should I stop?
Found next to my cat’s litterbox. Should I be freaking out?
Hitlerina was walking around the room and meowing, probably calling me to go to bed. I grabbed her and put her in my lap, and for the first time ever she stayed. Is she growing old and becoming a cuddler?
Does that hitlerina faggot think this is his blog or what?
>>3646021Kill yourself cunt
>>3644016What is the best solution for tracking kots? I'd mostly like something to help me find him if he zips out the door one day, but also something where I can find him in the house. All of the GPS collars I've looked at seem really huge and uncomfortable for a cat, and have incredibly short battery lives. Bluetooth trackers are a lot smaller and last forever, but the range isn't great. Are there any reasonably sized GPS trackers with good battery life?
>>3646034Attach your smartphone to it
>>3644016Ni hao bitches.
>>3646151Ni hao, chum
Are there any wild cats with an oriental/semi-foreign type, or are cats naturally cobby?I like the long necks.
>>3646172The African ones usually look slender due to having shorter fur and other adaptations for hotter climates.
>>3646172Also Servals are quite elegant. They are used to breed the Savanah Cat.
>>3646021just ignore him. he's a sad creature who craves attention
>>3646158A full understanding of other cultures made me a white nationalist. The chinese eat cat meat for some supposed spiritual energy. It's not about scarcity, it is a "delicacy", several times the price of pork or beef.
>>3646242> can't dislike some shit without making an identity out of it
>>3645956It was probably just walking next to it and you happened to spot it.
>>3646253And who did we learn this behavior from, huh?
>>3646242>the chinese eat cat meat for some supposed spiritual energythe chinese eat cat meat because they've historically eaten everything, even other chinese. there have been a lot of famines in chinese history, they eat dirt and tree bark too, they're not very discerning
>>3645959I need an answer
>>3645915Maybe he feels really good when you massage him and this produces the same effect of a sexual stimulation to his pp.
>not even 100 posts in and some idiot turns it sexual
>>3645337>>3645899After examining vet declared constipation. Cat was given laxative, spend half hour shitting once it started working. Then went back to shitting straight after eating some time alter. Currently curled and sleeping, as she's no longer aggitated by intestine full of shit.
>>3646724Glad to read she's fine now.
do vaccines give cats autism?
>>3644018Yeah, I had 3 budgies and four cats. My cats liked to look at them like TV but they never hurt them or tried anything sus.My birds didn't mind them either and my old parakeet used to hang around with them (under supervision of course).
>>3646785all cats already have autism
>>3644402take him to a vet, same thing happened to mine, gave us a prescription and he got better
>>3647104Wow a wound healed?!
>>3646785Sam gives his cat autism
>>3644960Cats are the aspies of the animal kingdom
>>3646433there were plenty of famines in general<insert something racist; maybe "chinese are insects">
>>3646242if you worded that less pretentious, i would have agreed
i think my cat may be asiatic
We had to get a 2nd for our older cat She only used the one in the older one 3 times since I changed the litter in the older box saturday (9th) and added the new box Wednesday (6th), once on saturday and twice today. the litter still looks clean.How should I handle it? she uses the newer one a lot more? Just change the newer litterbox's litter completely? and just fill up the old one a little? or just change out the old one two? I changed litter once a week when we had just one box. I don't want to waste litter
>>3646187Looking elegant as fuck
>>3647541sorry if this sounds weird, I've never done a thing like this before and I want to make sure my cat has plenty of litter. since I change the litter out every week I don't know when to change out a litter box a cat doesn't really use that often.
>>36475412nd litterbox I mean
>>3644016Hey guys! I just adopted a kitten, but there's some stuff i'm a bit concerned aboutI'm trying to play with only toys and not make my hands or feet into what he would hunt since it's what i read about in the internet, i also don't hit him or use a water spray when he does stupid shit.Thing is, ever since the beginning he's been REALLY fearful/hateful towards my hands, he never lets me pet him if it's not when he's almost falling asleep, and his ears always go straight back and archs his back when i get my hands close to him. I'm trying to give him treats from my hand to see if he gets a bit more comfortable, but it isn't helping. We've been together for 12 days nowDespite his fear of my hands, he really loves my legs and i feel like he feels safe with them when exploring the rest of the house he's always between them or runs to them if he gets a bit scared, it's only the hands that he fears, maybe the previous owner hit him? i don't knowHe's like, 2 months old now, i think, i just want him to feel comfortable and safe around me
why does my cat randomly hunch its back and sideways run/hop at me?
What is the most majestic, regal, looking cat?
>>3647828That one with a mane
Is it normal for 6mo female kitten to eat less and weight less than her male sibling
>>3646785Why would you care if your cat has autism?
>>3647541>>3647550First off, it's waste of material and money to give every litter a lifespan of one week regardless of its use; wash the box and replace the litter with clean one ONLY when visibly dirty/stinky.I do that approximately once every 2 weeks depending on how many times my cats used them and which one (I have two, too) got dirtier and therefore takes priority.Of course, if your cat uses one more than the other, bacterias will still proliferate and you'll have to change it eventually.My suggestion would be to not fill the less used box with abondant litter, just add enough to cover the surface of the box. If it remains kind of clean even after a couple of weeks, change it anyway.
>>3647559>just adoptedWould explain why he's still scared. Don't worry, you will bond over time, be patient.Don't take every single advice you find in a literal way, the cat has to see and make physical contact with your hands in order to not be scared when you come close to pet him or to pick him up. The advice about the toys comes in handy (pun not intended) in case a kitten wants to play rough with your hands, so you redirect him to a toy or something else.Approach him with a fist and let him sniff it, don't come with the open hand from above or he will see that as a threat. You gently stroke his face and if he's not confortable, you retreat the hand. Continue until he gets used to your hand.Also post pics of the kitten!
>>3647562Autistic way to play, especially if he's a young cat or a kitten. When it does that, play with it for a bit.>>3647854>eat lessHow much is "less"?And do you how much she weighs?Usually 6 months cats are still in their super hungry phase because they haven't finished growing.
>>3647325Nvm his muzzle is too large
>>3645765thanks anon. it's day 3 nowcat 1>eating, pooping in litterbox. lets me pet him but will eventually hiss cat 2>more difficult. knocked over her food bowl. hisses at us and won't let us pet her. at least she's eating nowI hope she's not pissing on my clothes thoughI'm kind of annoyed I wish my friend got them fixed before passing them onto me. maybe it would've helped with the aggression.
>>3646242>A full understanding of other culturesYou mean a rudimentary understanding you gained from 4chan and a few clickbait articles?
Do cats feel themselves smoother after we bathe them and their fur feels smoother to us?
This one is a massive biting dick. But very pretty looking.
My cat used to lick my hair a lot. Why?
>>3648431maybe it wanted to show affection?
>>3648435Or transfer toxoplasmosisBrazil has a very high rate of T. gondii infection in humans. Up to 50% of elementary school children and 50-80% of women of child-bearing age have antibodies to T. gondii. The risks for uninfected women to acquire toxoplasmosis during pregnancy and fetal transmission are high because the environment is highly contaminated with oocysts. The burden of toxoplasmosis in congenitally infected children is also very high. From limited data on screening of infants for T. gondii IgM at birth, 5-23 children are born infected per 10 000 live births in Brazil. Based on an estimate of 1 infected child per 1000 births, 2649 children with congenital toxoplasmosis are likely to be born annually in Brazil. Most of these infected children are likely to develop symptoms or signs of clinical toxoplasmosis. Among the congenitally infected children whose clinical data are described in this review, several died soon after birth, 35% had neurological disease including hydrocephalus, microcephaly and mental retardation
Blood in his diarrhea nowVet has a stool sample, waiting to hear back from the lab
>>3647559Yeah, if you don't use a really nasty soap or handle raw onions for a living It's a negative experience he had before adoption. Just continue being gentle and back away if he shows fear. Let him explore your hands at his own speed. 12days is nothing, and he's still a baby, some cats need years to fully trust someone.Get some long range toys for the meantime.>>3648476Did you consider an x-ray or ultrasound and bloodcount?I mean, I guess it's very likely giardia but like mentioned the test could come back false negative and you might want to rule out other issues if it doesn't get better.
Reminder that toxo raises your testosterone
>>3647889>>3648508Thank you guys! I'll be a bit more patient and try to make him get used to itI already play a lot with him with long range toys, like fishpoles you know?And here's a pic, his name is loan shark, he gets really cuddly when he's sleepy
>>3648608then why is brazil the tranny capitol
>>3648612loan shark is too adorable! I forgot how cute kittens are. my cat's an old fat faggot now but he was once a cute tiny thing that slept in the crook of my neck
She's so silky and perfumed, I think I'll start washing her more often. She also liked me more after the bath.
>>3648612>his name is loan sharkFor what reason?>>3648632It's the big dick tranny capitol. Your tranny's all have small pp lmfao just like you
You will never know the feeling when your 3 year old cat still looks like a little teenager and is also playful and enjoys running>mfw almost 1/3 of her life is gone>so is my own life
>that Hitler cat?>do you know that Hitler cat?>oh yes, of course, the Hitler cat
>cat was about to get up and run away from bed>quickly throw blanket over it>cat sits still and doesn't want to leave anymore
>>3647874yeah I jumped the gun, she's using that one a lot more often now, so what should I do? How do I tell when a box is dirty
>>3648960seems like each of them get used at least a few times a day like twice or so. So next time I change it out wait 2 weeks?
>>3647874how many cats do you have? I have only one
>>3648612What a beauty. Give them 1 pet for me
>>3648708Remember to give your kitty some space every now and then
Rest in piece to this little one. She was 8 1/2 years old and passed due to heart complications. She was timid, but also very loving.She was diagnosed with an enlarged heart back around late October. Even drove 12+ hours to see a vet specialist and was able to get her on medication. For a while she was back to normal, but about two weeks ago I really started to see the signs. It was the hardest thing to see. It got to the point where I had to arrange the litterbox, bed, and food/water all close by because she could barely move on her alone. She stopped eating and could barely manage to get a few licks of water. It was extremely heart wrenching, I hope no one has to go through what I did with her.Sorry for the blog but I just wanted to share. Give yours a pet for me.
>>3649100Are you going to get another cat
>>3649100RIP your cat my heart goes out to her
>>3644016Took a video of my cat, what do you guys think of him?https://youtu.be/mWY-IALeARY
>>3649110Yes. This is my other cat. She is around 7 years old. >>3649124Thank you, I appreciate it.
>>3649147Is your cat acting different after losing it's friend

Hey anyone has experience with young cats ? I have two of them one is like 3.4 kg the other is 2 kg. Born one month apart. The small one is breathing quite a bit faster than the bigger one. The vet said to not worry it might be worms and gave me a Tablett. She can play for 4 hours straight whiteout getting out of breath. She's eating and sleep fine and has no signs of any illness other than the fast breathing (she does that even when she's chilling). Is this normal ?
>>3649060She spends most of the day by herself walking around the house
>>3649174>zoophilia means women getting it from an animal here>i'm tested toxo freephew
>>3647874Your house must stink
how rare is a male calico?I am the only person i know who has onepic related
I recently moved to a new apartment with my cat.He has "scooted" twice and basically spread shit all over the floor. (His asshole itches whilst pooping sometimes, so he panics and drags his butt over the floor.)I read this could be some kind of allergy, but I haven't done any extensive diet changes, aside from switching to a more expensive brand of his dry-food. (He gets both wet and dry.)He never shows any kind of pain or excessive licking.Should I go to a vet about it? What can I do in the meantime?Wiping cat-shit off my floor is not my favorite hobby, and he gets embarrassed and ashamed.
>>3648379Nice fur and eyes.>>3648960>>3649011Anon, you will notice when they are dirty.Common examples: parts of the walls of the box smeared with shit; urine smell coming from it; small pieces of poop/wet litter; urine clumps harder to scoop up etc. Even just one or two of these are signs the litter should be changed and the box washed.Do a test and start with waiting for about two weeks, then act according to the results you see.What really matters is that you don't overlook the litter boxes for a long period, because just like humans, cats don't like to use a dirty toilet.>>3649025I have two cats.>>3649100May this beautiful lady rest in peace.>>3649189It's hard to tell anon, maybe X-rays would help to exclude a cardiac disease. Insist and tell your vet again about it.>>3649378Afaik they are extremely rare, congrats anon. How did you get him if I may ask?
>>3649475his mother (a stray) showed up a few years ago and gave birth to him and his sister in a bucket in my garage.
>>3649476the mother was an orange tabby btw
>>3649460The new food could potentially be the cause of an allergy, so yeah call the vet. He might tell you to suspend the dry food and see if there are any changes.You could confront the ingredients of the previous dry food with the new one's and write them down.
>>3648336am this anon getting worried now broscat 2 still hasnt come out to eat or anything shes still really angry. is it a good idea to forcefully place her in the bathroom with food and water so she has the chance to do her business? she's been hiding on my closet ledge the entire time and i dont think she has used the bathroom or eaten.
>>3649475Thank you I have a vet appointment on Wednesday. I will tell him it did not get better after giving her the worm medication.
>>3649460does he have worms?
>one of the cat's eyes is abnormally dilated>might be glaucoma, but not sure>now she's constantly begging for food but refusing to eat anythingWhat's wrong with her?
>>3649492No. Don't force her, or it will increase her aggressivity and stubborness. Get her out of the closet, but give her a place to hide (example access to under your bed, or an hidden angle). Are they eating wet or dry food? The smell of wet food might convince her to come out and eat.How long until your friend is back and takes the cats back?
>>3649530She's transforming into a were-cat.Call your vet, dummy.
>>3649538Im going to have them for a couple monthsCan I pick her up and put her in this small storage closet I have? i was thinking about clearing it out, putting food, water, litterbox in there and letting her hide in itShe gets pissed and hisses even if I dont reach my hand out to her. eating dry food and im going to get wet food today but idk if it will work she's very, very stubborn according to her owner. when she hissed at me i shook the little food bowl i have up there for her and she smacked her lips a lot so I know she's hungry
>>3649547Wet food has a strong, enticing smell, plus contains fluids as a substitute for water (which she should still drink anyway). Maybe alert you friend about it, ask their permission. If kitty refuses to eat in don't see other options though.A storage closet I guess is fine for now, although you'd have to give her the chance to get out and explore the house when she starts to get used to your presence. It may take time, but she will calm down so don't give up and be patient.
>>3649615thanks, i'll try wet food tonight. if that doesnt work then the storage closet tomorrow. I did discuss this with their owner and they were comfortable with the ideathank you anon. if they wanna live in the closet thats fine but dont starve to death in it lol :(
>>3647896Less than the male i haven't measured the amount of food but she weights around 3.5 kg I thought it was cause the males develop muscles
>>3646242Its just another animal you can eat for food, anon. I like cats too, but its okay to kill and eat them. You sound like a sensitive vagina right now.
>>3649706>around 3.5 kgNormal and healthy weight for a 6 months cat.The male one might be a little overweight.
>>3649634Please keep us updated.Leave the closet open, at least at night while you're sleeping. When the house is silent and "safe" she will feel more comfortable to take a tour of it.
my cat is constantly coming out of the litterbox, crying a lot, and the litterbox is clean, is he constipated? any home remedies or is a vet visit mandatory?
>>3649743I'm fairly certain for this anon that the racism came before this justification for it, despite what he might say.
>>3650058update! she did eat the wet food. I held the plate for her so she could sort of get used to me as well and she gobbled it upsometimes she growls while eating. thank you kot anons for your help. we always leave the doors open so they may explorethe other cat is doing great and exploring now
>go into bathroom to shit>lower the seat>as soon as my cat hears the bonk he comes running>rubs against my legs purring like crazy while I do my thing>runs away as soon as I stand upThis is the only time he is like that, he keeps a respectful distance the rest of the time. What gives?
>>3650215Idk but my not very needy cat cuddles me when I poo too, even jumps on my knees. Makes pooping cute.
>>3650096Based and majesticpilled
>>3644016This is my /k/ot, Winchester, he’s a prick but I love him
>>3650273Don't you ever mistake me for the poor Brazilian again, if I was him I would've posted at least 3 pictures with my post
>>3650369Hmm yeah, maybe stop spamming then :)
>>3650064Might have a blocked urethra, if your cat litter has """crystals""" read the warnings on the box/bag.>>3650096Cute.
>>3650356>>3650373Can’t get a gf with eyes like his so he’s all I’ve got. He’s my best friend
>>3650112That's fantastic! When she finally feels at ease and walks around you without problems you can think of switching back to her original dry food.Hope you all have a great time together. >>3650354What a qt.
>got an automatic pet feeder for Christmas so my cat would stop waking me up in the middle of the night>fast forward to this week, cat is still waking me up at 5 in the morningWHAT THE FUCK DO YOU WANT YOU STUPID FUCKING CAT
>>3650537Anon you have to be hard. Never respond to any food begging in the night put in some earplugs and sleep. The cat will stop after a few days (or weeks).
>>3650552>thinking earplugs will stop a cat
>>3650553My cats are not allowed in the bedroom at night since I got them. They are free to explore it and sleep on the bed at daytime. But as soon as we go to bed the door is closed. So earplugs just work fine for me. Obviously when they sleep with you in the bed it's actually harder but ignoring should fix unwanted behavior.
>>3650555My cat would scratch the door to hell.
>>3649743Babies are just more animals I can eat for food, so it's okay to kill and eat them.
>>3650603cats are not babies, you mentally ill "pet parent"
>>3650622It's a fucking analogy, you waste of genetic material.
>>3650629it's an "analogy" of two things that are completely not analogous. kill yourself, room temperature iq twat
I want to let you know that these retarded spam and troll posts aren't by me. It's some obsessed retard, he's also been spamming guitar general threads from beginning to end for the last few days. Sometimes I spam but it's just normal pics of hitlerina.>>3650633Are we talking room temperature in celsius or fahrenheit?
>>3650559Put vinegar close to it
