Took Pita to the park
>>3919338Bruh get some new shoes...
I placed a Chinese Spring Roll next to the kibble, when I came back, the cat had consumed the Chinese Spring Roll instead of the kibble.
>>3919345> high end cat backpack> busted ass camo pants and new balancesCatfags having priorities in the wrong place? Absolutely priceless.
>>3919348High end backpack? I got that at a thrift store for 5 bucks. The pants are hardly crap, but yes my thrift store shoes are due for a replacement
My new apartment got fleas that are pretty much gone now but my kot would go on the carpet because she thinks they are still therehow long until she stops this shit and goes back to walking on carpet like normal
>>39193531. Good find on the backpack, looks relatively new.2. Offbrand wannabe BDU camo pants are ALWAYS crap, no exceptions3. Glad you agree w. me about the shoes, they're busted my guy.
>>3919381Offbrand, my ass
I got a shy cat a month ago and she's finally starting to warm up to me. Sits on the couch a few feet away from me at night, will eat treats from my hand, and even comes out of hiding during the day sometimes. But I've started hearing her nails clicking on the floor so she needs her nails trimmed, but cats hate it and I don't want to lose all that progress and she'll be scared of me again. What's the best way to do it?I was thinking of getting a cat muzzle (shelter manager said it helps keep them calm during) and maybe wrapping her in a blanket. Just don't know how I'll even capture her, since if I do anything but try to pet her or feed her while she's lying calm on the couch she gets spooked.The last cat I had I raised from a kitten so even if she didn't like getting her nails clipped, she was easy to capture to clip her nails since she would even let me cradle her in my arms on her back like a baby.An anon said cats will pull them/chew them out when they get too long but she hasn't done that yet after a week more, and the scratching posts and pads don't trim them that much.
>>3919402My cat isn't shy, but my family will just put her on her back in our laps, and trim her nails with a small nail clipper, the kind you'd use on your fingers. Maybe try to associate nail trimming with food or something she likes?
Look at dis dood
>>3919306Sorry anon... may she rest in peace and watch over you.>>3919338>>3919340>>3919353Beautiful cat.>>3919364Replace the carpet. Or remove it for some time until she forgets.
These two little cute astray siblings (white is m, dark is f) were rescued by my mom about a month ago. They could barely walk, they were practically newborn it seems. We've taken them to the vet and he says they are completely fine, gave em some antiparasitic shot but other than that they look pretty healthy. I'm going to take them again in a month for some extra routine checkups and whatnot. Moms been feeding them some specialized milk in a baby bottle.They can't stay with her because she already has 3 dogs, which don't trust to socialize with them, so they are going to stay with me at my place, and I've never had cats. I know the basics about scratchers, toys, food, litter boxes... But what tips would you tell a total cat newbie?I'm gonna call them coffee and milk.
>>3919473Very nice color on your kitty anon. Would pet.
>>3919345Good on you. I always wear my shoes until they fall apart completely. Don't let the new shoe jew get ya!
what is it with cats and toilets
oh no no no cat broshttps://i.4cdn.org/wsg/1630682233710.webm
>>3919538Simple names, but very cute.Put them inside one room that they won't leave until they have settled into the house and gotten used to the noises and to human presence; the room has to have their food and water bowls, a litter box (you can use a cardboard with low sides for now), and an access to an area where they can hide (like the space between the wall and a bookcase, or an out of sight corner), because trust me they ARE going to hide all day for the first few days, no reason to be worried about that, it's normal. Oh, the litter box has to be placed far from the bowls.Let them explore one room at a time when they are ready. Don't leave potentially dangerous small objects around they could chew and swallow.If they don't feel like peeing and pooping for the first couple days it may be due to anxiety, it is important that they stay hydrated.This site lists pretty much all the advices I usually give to new cat owners so please check it out: https://www.spca.nz/advice-and-welfare/article/bringing-your-new-cat-home
>>3919397LARPing civilians are just the worst.
>>3919679Bro I'm stealing valor with my surplus pants
please capture the creature
Get down from there Cricket!My dad feeds Cricket whenever she meows, and now she meows constantly for food, which irritates my dad who then yells at her and chases her with a spray bottle. And then he goes and fills up her food dish. I've tried to tell my parents that they need to only put food in the dish once in the morning and once in the evening, but then my dad complains that the cat keeps complaining. It upsets me that they are on their fourth cat and make no effort to learn what not to do with a cat.Mojave and Oreo were let outside, without a collar whenever they wanted and both were killed by coyotes.Mocha was throwing up for half a year before my mom took her to the vet and they discovered a stomach tumor.Now Cricket is being taught bad feeding habits.
What is the optimal cat skull shape? I have 2 cats that are siblings. One has what I would describe as a slight underbite appearance, even though his teeth align well and not in an actual underbite. I guess his chin is big or something. But from a profile view it looks like how an underbite looks on a human. His brother does not have that, and his face is much softer. The former cat has a slightly wider and higher face and a flatter top of the head/forehead. The latter cat has a "cuter" appearance."
>>3919785This is clearly the best cat head
These are my assholes.
Is it OK to smoke nearby cats if you are outdoors
>>3919921Don't smoke cats, nearby or not. Burnt hair smells awful
>>3919402Just let her do it herself. Some good scratching opportunities or her teeth should be enough.
should i teach my cat how to get out my walled garden? shes maybe 7 months old but hasnt really tried to get out apart from running out the front door
>>3919593They’re shitty pets
should i get a kot?
>>3920382Obviously yes but plan for it first
>>3919839Human only need one asshole. You need to see a doctor to fix that fistula.
>>3919348You probably wear brand new all-white shoes like a fucking faggot. Do you avoid walking in wet grass too homo?
>>3919402if you have ample scratching posts/rugs, the cat will eventually get it out themselves. My cats click sometimes, and after a day or two it goes away when they pull it out with their teeth or scratch something. Ain't no nail clippers in the wild dude.
this is what happens when you fuck a cat
>>3920472Oh, it's shame dawson's son
>>3919781Nothing can be done if your parents don't put effort into it. The cat will complain, your dad will complain... everyone will be forever unhappy.When you want to change your cat's diet and eating schedule you do it gradually, not overnight.Cricket is very cute and deserves the best - which isn't endless food and lazy owners.>>3920177No. Keep her inside or in the garden supervised.
Take a nap, wake up to Pita
>>3920592Maybe see a proctologist soon.
I saw online that you should feed ~60cal for each lb of kitten body weight but ~250 and ~360 calories seems like a LOT.360 calories is like almost 4 small cans of wet food a day. I guess I could do 1/2 cup of dry food and 2 small 3oz cans? Still seems like a lot jesus. How can a kitten need 360 when humans can do alright on 1200??
>>3919306I'm sorry anon, we had to take Gregory here to the vet and she has some rare disease and we have to put her down tomorrow. Pic related is her at her first and last birthday party. Sadly she got worse and couldn't fully enjoy it
>>3920758Kittens eat a LOT
Why don't you take your cats for walks in the forrest or fields?
>>3920758Human 6-12 year olds should eat 1.600 to 2.200 calories.Growing animals need that nutrition but yes it does seem like a lot.
My boy is retarded but I love him.
>>3920512she goes out the back unsupervised as it is. When should i push her to leave the garden and go out or will she do it naturally?
>>3920963he's telling you to stop because its retarded. Not trying to play or be endearing
>>3920968Why would you want the cat to roam the streets? I would count myself lucky if I already had a walled in garden the cat couldn't escape from.>>3920971He is doing it expecting food :)
>>3920979because cats were born to roam the streets anon. people who keep cats indoors are sick in the head
>>3920994Literally all they do in the street is get run over, piss in bushes and become a bigger cats bitch. You have a walled in garden, it can get fresh air, dig in dirt, roll around in the grass, the cat will be plenty content with that.
>>3920996I see your parents took the same approach with you. Leave your door open and see if your cat tries to go out... it will because it wants to be out there
>>3920998Assuming you find someone desperate enough to have a child with you please let the child run around on the freeway, would love to see the headline.
>>3921000you're a selfish sheltered human being and i can safely assume you're overweight too. Do you keep a person indoors its whole life? Cats aren't babies
>>3921005Hah, did I hit a nerve? Then get a dog and let it play on the freeway because it's obviously too unlikely that you will ever find someone that will let you have their kid. I guess you can drive around in a white van luring kids with candy if you really want to.
Is fancy feast really that bad? catfooddb.com gives it's 6/10 which is pretty average and does not seem bad at all. the first few ingredients are meat which is good, but i know that it also involves "meat byproduct" but I eat bologna myself I don't get why it's really bad. also purina does a lot of research on their products, more so than other companies.i want to give my cat decent food and not hurt him in the long run but I swear i be eating worse than him sometimes with the expensive shit he eats
>>3919093Little Seren says hi, we've had her about 3 months now from about 8 weeks. Loves woodland walks and cuddles. Absolute princess and a dork.
>>3921027>>3921005Shut up nobody cares
>>3920382Absolutely but make sure you look in to it first, they're so rewarding if you treat them right but they do have some specific needs. Always plan for the vet also.
>>3919781Cats are such simple animals to care for it baffles me how people fuck up with them. Give them a routine, take them to vet if sick, make sure they have a few toys and some playtime and the rest of the time they pass out in a warm corner.
>>3921190i have a kot in my parent's house and now im living on my own
>>3921199Noice, if you're used to cats and you have the time and money, go for it. Have a watch of Jackson Galaxy's vids, he's got some pretty good starter vids for new owners, I've had a cat in the past but there were a few good pointers I found useful when I got my kitter recently. Also leash training. Even if you decide to let them be an outdoor cat, it's still great for them to be able to come for walks with you. You can go camping and backpacking with them and all sorts
Need some more advice on my shy cat >>3919402, bros She fell asleep for a little bit on the couch right next to me last night, so she's getting used to me. But she only mostly comes out at night and hides the rest of the day under my covers. And even when she comes out at night, she gets spooked by me unless I'm sitting down on the couch. If I'm standing or walking she darts away from me. And if she's sitting on the couch and I get up to go get something, she runs away when I sit back down. How do I get her to come out more during the day and how do I get her to not be so scared of me when I'm standing/walking?
Is it a good idea to get a kitten adopted by university/college students? Even if the person loves animals and is well-meaning?
>>3921424I'm a unistud and I have kot
>>3921461She's easily fooled by tin cans after an incident with a can of tuna
>>3921461>>3921463She's born in 2004 but she still looks and behaves like a kitten :D
>>3921470Very cute kot
>>3921461>>3921463>>3921470She's such a cutie. Her name is Kattis. Katt is cat in Swedish, so naming a cat Kattis is like naming your dog "doggo".
>>3921461>>3921463>>3921470>>3921475She's aa cute black lady, and I'm sure she's happy to be with you. May I ask you what prompted you to get a cat if you are still studying?The problem is that I'm fostering 2 kittens; today a 22 yo unistud contacted me, they are interested in one of them and are coming tomorrow to see him.Maybe I'm excessively worried but unistuds are so young, they don't have their future figured out yet. Also if they live far from their hometown, they decide to get a pet to feel less lonely or as a status symbol of self-sufficiency. Can they take proper care of a pet? Will they get tired overtime?A person from a non-profit organization that helped me in the past told me that more often than not they refuse to give cats away to uni students because in their experience they faced many problems afterwards (there are exceptions of course).I'm conflicted because these 2 lil fuckers are a big commitment for me, but I don't want to give them to the first applicant that shows up.
>>3919402>>3921279Also, how do I get her to use any of the 5 cat beds I got her? Catnip, treats, and lasers aren't doing it
>>3921639if your cat likes to sit in or by windows, put a bed by one. my cat likes to sit in hers and sleep in the sun
sending my kat to the vet monday for he first time for suspected tooth issues (he wont eat hard food). what should I do to ensure I don't get milked with fees? ask for an itemized receipt?
>>3921745Tell them you don't want to get screwed
>>3921279>>3921639A short answer to all of that is: wait and let her be confortable enough to do it all by herself.You can continue to be friendly while respecting her spaces, in the hope she loosens up. Play with her, even if she's scared by close contact, use strings or cat dancers which you can use from a distance.It takes more time to soften up adult cats, don't expect to achieve all your goals.I wouldn't try to get her nails clipped now, it would stress her and invalidate the attempts to win her trust. As anons said, she can do it herself, also scratching posts (and patience) will do.
>>3921639Some cats actually prefer hard surfaces to lay in. I had a cat that would never sleep in the cat beds but if I gave him a plain wicker basket he'd crawl right in it and fall asleep. If you have one it's worth a try.
>>3919899that's such a pretty kot
>>3921484Sorry for late-ish reply.I understand your worry. They are living creatures and need to be taken care of properly. I might not have every step of my life figured out yet but I have enough money in the bank to sustain me (and my cat) for at least a year if anything were to happen. She's heavily insured too, so unexpected medical costs are no worry of mine.I also have a very nice neighbour who's always willing to look after her if I need to be away for longer than usual. I don't know how uni works in your country, but for me it's pretty chill. 90% of the lectures are digital (they were digital even before the pandemic) so most of the time I'm studying from home. I've been to uni maybe two days a week on average the last three years, and only for like 4-5 hours those days.Hopefully the students that are interested in your kitten are mature enough to understand what it takes.One thing I'd check though is how they live. If they live at a dorm or something like that it might not be big enough for a cat. I have my own apartment so that's not an issue for me.
>>3919402I don't think I can give GOOD advice, but maybe someone can verify or vilify what I say. When I was a kid we had a cat who was very difficult when it came to trimming nails. I found a solution the cat was fine with.First, take cat nail scissors. When you see your sleeping cats exposed paws, gently press that first knuckle to expose the nail, and trim it. When you're starting to do this, just dull the nail. The closer you get to the cuticle the more the cat will notice. I have completely trimmed all my cats nails, even moving the paws around, without my cat ever noticing. Sometimes he slept very deeply.Ideally, you trim all of them, but here's the kicker. If you touch a cats dew claw they are going to notice. Leave them for last and do it fast, but close to the tip. It was pretty common for me to get the fingers but not the thumb as it were. I was trimming his claws to minimize damage to furniture and also himself, as he would get his claws snagged on things and sometimes hurt himself. But damn, accidental dew claw damage gave my dad a scar he has to this day.Anyway, he never threw a fit if I stopped when we woke up. If we tried when we was awake he'd act like we were kidnapping him.It would be way better if you could train your cat to tolerate it, but I never could, so this is my advice.
True country cat
Happy caturday :)
cats dying lads
We haven't seen hitlerina the whole day, bros
I miss her so much
Will she ever come back to my arms, I don't know
>>3921639>>3922047>>3922061Another question: How do I let my cat know I love her? I do the slow blinks but she doesn't return them yet, like my cat I grew up with did, of course.
>>3920472Haha wtf that is one ugly mug
>>3920938how to do it?
all these people with carcals and bobcats at home, what are they feeding them?
Anybody here have to give their cats pain meds? I wondering if I can Gove my boy another pill for pain since the first one wore off and he is hurting. And no I can't call the vet now it's 2 in the morning and he is in pain right now
>>3921639I got a habib hat and my cat keeps sleeping on it instead of the beds I got for him. A lot of cats love the smell of fur, wool and other animals for some reason. Synthetics tend to go over less enthusiastically than natural fibers
All my life I've been told girl cats have three colors, and boy cats have less. I took a two color cat from the street, and found out later it's a girl. What gives?
>>3922620What dumb question is this? Take good care of your cat and she'll know you love her.>>3922858What pills are you giving him? I'm replying late, hope he's feeling better now.You can get arnica for cats for the next times if the pill effect wears off too soon.
>>3922970Maybe they didn't explain it well to you, or you got confused.Two color cats can be either boys or girls. Cats with a tri-colored coat (calicos) are almost exclusively females. Tortoiseshell cats are an exceptions, they are cats with two colors but are rarely males.
>>3922292Sounds like yours was an ideal premise to get a cat and offer her a great life.Maturity and awareness are what a lot of students still lack when it comes to adopting pets, they don't imagine what it entails, which is why these organizations prefer families or even a single adult who has a stable job and a secure income, over uni or college students that often are just fulfilling a whim. Sure, their lifestyle and financial resources are an important thing to check as well. I would never ever give a cat to someone at a dorm.Thankfully it all went well, after talking with them I'm convinced that they are a responsible person. We talked a lot, I asked all sorts of questions. They agreed to send me updates and pics of the kitten in the coming months.I'll try to have some faith and be less biased against certain categories.>>3923222Typical.
>>3921184Cute lil baby
What makes cat owners such chads?
>>3919093Anons, I want to plant Nepeta cataria, but I can't find seeds anyway. where do you find the damn plant?
>>3923333amazon, search catnip seeds
>>3923362I tried, but it seems like almost every result is a scam selling basil as catnip
I got a Litter Robot and my dumbass cat isn't using it. Following all of the advice they provide to get her to use it, but she's being stubborn. Anyone here have any experience with them?>>3922436This is what she looks like, even with the off center hitler mustache.
>>3923585anon did you really spend hundreds on a litterbox
>>3923585>This is what she looks like, even with the off center hitler mustachePost proof
>>3923590Did he say hundreds? It's just a cheap piece of plastic
>>3923590I did. It's an easy investment if she stops pissing up against the edge of her current enclosed box so it leaks down the side away from the litter. Has only happened twice in the year I've had her, but it's been awful both times. Also, I can resell it if I need to. >>3923592Here. Yours has a lot more white on her chest.
>>3923600Oh nice. Yours is almost like all black
>>3923613Her belly is white, she has ankle socks on the front and knee socks on the back.
>>3923611Ah I had forgot the robot part. Brainfog is a bitch and fapping twice a day doesn't help either>>3923585Idk have you tried these cat trainer sprays?>>3923621Ah
>>3923623>cat trainer spraysI haven't, guess I can look into them at some point.
>>3919538If they won't eat, place the food dish on one leg and them on the other and allow them to knead your leg while eating. I had to do this with my kitty to get her to understand that she could eat the kibble I was putting down for her.
>>3919364she pees on the carpet because she thinks it has fleas? wut?
So I just adopted two 5-month old baby boys, they are brothers. they got neutered at the shelter two days ago, and then i picked them up and brought them home. i have never had kittens of my own before, and so i'm admittedly a little nervous. Kot1 is very outgoing and rambunctious; it feels like he has infinite energy to play. Kot2 is more shy and reserved but very sweet. I'm a little worried about Kot2 though, because he seems VERY lazy. he eats, drinks, poops and pees with no problem. but he spends most of his time either sleeping or just sitting there as a cat loaf. with a lot of coaxing i can get him to play a bit, but most of the time he would rather watch Kot1 chase the toys. my girlfriend has had many kittens in her life and she says he just seems chill to her, but i'm paranoid that he might be unwell. should i be worried?
>>3923733Nah, he's a good boy who just wants to relax.
Friends I live with a stray cat as my only friend for childhood but he died in a glorious last stand against three other strays killing one and injuring the second onehowever today I will adopt a new kotWhat is this declaw debate shit I don't know anything about claws
>>3923733Are they not showing signs of stress for being transferred to a new place? Most cats do.Maybe kot2is just a bit dazed from the recent neutering and the new house, and prefers to be cautious before joining his brother. I assume other than the neutering, the vets did a check up? You shouldn't worry. Give him some time.>>3923818Declawing is for retards and three worlders.
>>3922432If only everyday could be so blessed.
Don't know what to do with my cat bros. I recently had to go back to work in the office after working from home for 18 months. My cat is almost 18 years old, and he has serious separation anxiety now. Almost every time I come home he has shit in the house, he meows constantly, sometimes all night so I can't sleep well. He was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism last year and we treated him with medicine for about 6 months, but the vet told us it wasn't making any difference so we stopped. Don't know what to do, he seems really stressed all the time, and it's becoming a strain on me too. Any suggestions?
>>3924372Well, when my first cat got to be 18~, she had issues with going a bit senile and pissing just outside of the catbox. It's unfortunate, but that's a pretty long time for a cat to live. There's not too much you can do besides making the best of the time you have left.
Imagine if all cats were turned into dogs tomorrow. Holy based.
>>3924477Toddler deaths suddenly go through the roof
>>3919338>those shoes>the dad socks>the act of walking your cat on a leashso which eastern european country are you from anon?
>>3919346isn’t that cannibalism? Or should i say CAT-nnibalism!!!!
>>3924506There haven't been so many husky-eats-baby cases in the past decade even though they've gotten more popular. Are people starting to catch on to the "intelligent, energetic animals need more attention" thing or are they just keeping them separate now? The last case I heard of, the woman kept all her dogs in crates most of the time and rotated them out in pairs so they could sit in her window and bark.
>>3920397he probably wears those gay ass, bedazzled, 150$ jeans from buckle or some other homo store
>>3920613i think he meant to add that to his to-do list
>>3924517fewer wolf mixes being pawned off on unsuspecting retards now that more people know the difference between a wolfdog and a husky and most people want the blue eyed ones with clearer markings (guaranteed 0% wolf). i still see wolfdogs from time to time being labeled as "malamutes".the correct dog should still be considered dangerous though. would you trust your pet cougar with a baby? no, it's a predator, and human babies tick off all the boxes on the prey check list>small>squeaky>looks tasty>moves around
>>3924514Since the last post, the cat has eaten more spring rolls.It has also eating unthawed, frozen meatballs.The cat did not want to eat 2 fresh dead pigeons. I killed the pigeons because they had adult feathers but could not fly. It is odd that the cat would rather eat kibble, because birds are a normal prey animal for cats.
>>3923585Came back from work today and she used the new litter robot orb. I cleaned out her old box and will be posting it for a free trade group once I can get some good pictures of it. Just hope she doesn't freak out since that one's gone.
She really likes her bed
>>3924761The beast woke up
If you bathe sibling cats will they forget they’re related?
>>3924806do you forget you're related to your mother after taking a bath
>>3924993Yeah, actually. It happened to be when I was taking a bath with her as well. That's why it's a question.
>>3924993I've read that cats can forget each other after beign groomed.I hope not though, I want them to know they're family.Maybe they can remember each other by sniff their assholes.
She just sleeps everywhere
I once read that slowly blinking to cats it's like telling them you love them, I think mine does it (either that or just can't help herself from falling asleep slowly) but every time I do it she ignores me or looks away, did they just make that shit up or what?
Dude, my cat was gone for like 3 weeks and now came back just like that? WTF?????? He was a stray at the beginning of his life. He looks fine, a bit skinnier but he could do with losing weight to be honest
>>3925171I tried to hug him and he bit my shoulder quite hard, 15 minutes back he's already a cunt
He loves to sleep behind my couch
>>3925121Looking away is the next level slow blink.
Okay, so, my cat just ate a 2cm of chicken bone with cartilage included before I could pull the full bome out. So far he's acting fine. Didn't choke or anything. As active as usual. But from what I've read online, I'm freaking out. Should I be worried? I already called vet, but they told me I shouldn't bring my cat to clinic and instead should pay for vet to come home and check on him. What do I do? Wait until he goes to poop? Call the vet? Go to the clinic?
>>3925121It is said that looking a cat in the eyes for a long time (even if you blink) is considered a form of menace. Look at them, blink and break eye contact. Repeat. Ultimately it's cats that decide when it's time to blink back to return their love, deal with it.>>3925171>>3925175You have been lucky. He could have parasites, treat them.>>3925272How many hours have passed since when he ate the bone? Was it sharp? In the worst case scenario it could block or even pierce his intestine. This is no joke, better safe than sorry so bring him to a vet.>Wait until he goes to poop?Technically yes but it might be too late and bones are dangerous. Go to the clinic.
>>3925314Went to vet. She said he seemed good, but told me to monitor his condition closely and that he might experience blood in feces, but also told me to not worry too much because only in rarest cases cats tear their stomach with bone. Also, don't think it was too sharp. Still worried though, but a bit relieved after listening to professional
my little retard
>>3925354That is the look of someone who will fart on you while you sleep.
>>3925358Actually she drools on me when i sleep, she gets really affectionate and for whatever reason that causes her to drool

>>3925314We actually gave him anti parasite medication that lasts for a month just before he ran away, so he should be good. Just need to give him more now cause it's probably about to wear off

>>3925895I can't say I've seen anything else online saying not to let your cat even drink after spaying/neutering, though it would probably be best to not give him too much, as the cat's stomach may be upset. Also, you should probably let him rest on a bed low to the ground, preferably on the floor so he doesn't get injured trying to move around. might be a decent idea to not use regular litter for a bit to reduce the chances of anything getting in the incision site.
>>3925895Yes, it is normal. However my cat didn't have to stay that many hours without food and water post-surgery; vet told me to give him food and water when I would have woken up the next day (the neutering was in the afternoon, and when I went to the clinic to pick him up it was like 7 PM). I remember I woke up earlier (around 5:30) to refill his bowls, and everything went right. So in the end his post-suegery with no water and food lasted for ~12 hours.
>>3923733Cats sleep on average 16 hours a day.
>notice something on cat's ass>turns out it's liquid-y and there's a bloody spot next to his rectum>he's acting all psychotic after it was cleaned, licking it often and running around>probably trying to stop the pain and avoid the people who made it hurt more>he also threw up earlierWhat's wrong with him? Anything I can do for him until I can get him to a vet?
>>3926331Did you not notice anything weird in his behavior before you found the liquid? He might have eaten something bad or toxic for cats that's giving him this reaction. Best is to not stress him too much. Leave him alone and go to the vet asap. Post updates.
So guys... I was using a small hair clipper on my cats ears because her hair was kinda long. I think I accidentally cut into her ear a little bit, she didn't react and wasn't in pain despite it bleeding a little. My question is that will it just heal itself and grow back?
>>3920472Can someone please articulate why this cat looks so human? Is it something to do with the facial proportions?
>>3926701https://www.apost.com/en/blog/maine-coon-kitten-that-has-a-human-like-face-is-all-over-the-internet/12223/An normal cat skull more snake like, a maine coon skull is more monkey like.
>>3921279Just dealt with moving to a new place and it really scared my cat. I took away all the hiding places. Under anything should be blocked. Beds, couch, blankets. Let them roam the house at night. Took about a week for mine to get comfortable.
>>3926781When I moved I just kept my cat bottled up in my bedroom. Was like 3-4 days later she scratched on the door so I let her out. Another day and she was fine with the rest of the apartment. Not much help for the scaredy cat since I've had mine for a couple of years. She's moved more times than I have, I'm surprised she was still so wacked out about it.
>>3919093got a new kitty a few months ago and he's a pleasure. doesn't even have any maine coon in him he's just a fluff chad
>>3919306I feel your pain anon. My cat succumbed to heart failure today. The emptiness I feel is just getting worse, the phantom feeling of his presence I imagine will be there for awhile.
>>3926880My deepest condolences. I miss my old friend dearly but almost 3 years later I still think of him all the time because of how much joy he brought. What I wouldnt do to have him back
>>3926882Thank you for the kind words. He'll always be there in my mind from time to time I can tell too.
Me and my wife are going to sleep now. No spooning this time and no blanket for me because it's fuckin 23°C at 1am
>>3926910do you always take pictures upside down
Is my cat too fat? He looks pretty sturdy. Should I make him lose weight?
always considered myself a dog person and had dogs all my life but recently became dog-less and I've realised that, while I loved every dog I've ever had, I'm just a cat person, and my cat has become really really affectionate with no dogs in the house. i didn't realise how much the existence of the dogs was affecting her personality, and that even when he was in the room she didn't feel comfortable getting relaxed and comfy on me.
>>3926947My cat would sleep with the dog when he was still around
>>3926929>>3926931cat looks finepet him
>>3926830>>3926839>>3926840>>3926846Are you in Mexico?
>>3925386My old lady cat did that as well as the male we had with her. She about a month ago, out of all the animals of my childhood she was the last one standing. She always slept right next to my head. I miss her a lot.

Hey, my charger
>>3919399Looks like a nice cozy kot :)
>>3920938This is a very disturbing looking kot, anon
>>3921026Very nice cozy looking kot :)
>>3926606He didn't seem to be acting off at all. He was trying to rub his face against my legs when I noticed the stuff hanging off his butt and then he began acting really energetic and maybe a little panicky after it was cleaned off and he was also a bit warm as if he had a fever. He seems to be doing a lot better now - his butt's not bleeding everywhere, he's not freaking out, he doesn't feel as feverish as he did, and he hasn't thrown up again.I wouldn't be surprised if he ate something he shouldn't have, but it's also worth noting the problematic area seemed to be to the side of the rectum, moreso on his inner thigh than his asshole. I did notice some stuff sticking to his butt a few days ago, but it didn't look bloody like it did yesterday.Hopefully I'll be able to get him to the vet today.
Any idea as to what this is? My cat pukes one up about once a month. It's long and thin like a turd but it doesn't dissolve in water. Kind of yellowish brown. After it's up my lil guy just runs off and seems totally fine
>>3927474Looks like mostly hair
>>3927485That's what I figured... Just wanted to make sure I'm not missing anything serious
>>3919306Remember the good times. The joy you were able to give.
>>3920859Sad. I hope you gave it the best life it could get. I hope, it was nice to you.
>>3926880Fuck. Sorry for your loss.
This is Franz. He is 15 years old. In a few hours the vet will come around and put him down. Had him for over 12 years. Helped him through some tough shit.I almost cried like a bitch at the grocery store today, buying his last can of food. Tomorrow morning I'll present him with some juicy chicken for breakfast. Fuck the can. Fuck his cancer.
>>3927598I hope you get well, anon. Shit takes a toll on you
>>3927598Sorry to hear that anon. My condolences
>>3927593She had the best life a cat could get, spoiled as all hell. Near the end she was a lot more loving but usually she just did her own thing and only came up to people when she wanted
>>3927691Those are the best sorts of cats. Crystal was like that. She passed a year and a half ago now.
>>3922161Thanks, she is pretty
Hi anons, I take care of a litter of strays in my area (3 kittens and their mom, it used to be 4 kittens but one of them disappeared).They're all used to me and play with me often but this black kitten is the most friendly and follows me everywhere even after he's eaten. I was intending to adopt him but he disappeared this Monday and hasn't come back since. I'm starting to get worried he's not coming back ever since he's a stray and a little sad I might not see him again. Should I try looking for him or just leave it and hope he just became independent?
>>3927595>>3927623>>3927635>>3927670Very kind of you, anons. We arw about 1h away from the appointment. Gonna bawl like never before in my life.At the same time I'm kind of happy that he was fond of me as his companion. Looking forward to all the other cats lifes, I'll be able to affect in some positive way.Godspeed, people. Godspeed, Franz.
my friend named risya >>3927788look for him, friend>>3927747very cute>>3927934sorry to hear that. love for franz
>>3927934You're doing the right thing. I'm so sorry, it must be so hard. Rest in power Franz.

Has anyone here had to force feed a cat before? I've only done it once a few years back and that cat started eating on her own again very quickly, but it seems like this guy might take a little longer.He keeps looking at his food, maybe licks the gravy off of it or licks up some chicken broth but won't eat anything solid (Except for the occasional cat treat, I guess he still can't resist one or two of those no matter how bad he feels). I was hoping someone could give me an ancedote of how long it took for their cat to start eating on their own again, I only have the other cat to go by and she was only around 6 years old while this one is almost 12.Even though no one knows what's wrong with him, I'm just happy the major bad things that are untreatable seem to be off the table.
Their bless to me
>>3928155Also i found gorgeous guy in another place
>>3926686Unfortunately no, it won't grow back into a clean edge. Most of my cats [spoiler]I've only had barn cats[/spoiler] wound up with some minimal damage to their ears. One of my current cats has a 1/4" slit on her ear from a fight with a neighbor cat, but it doesn't bother them one bit. I wouldn't feel too bad but just be more careful in the future.
>>3928104I have the opposite problem, my kot is obsessed with food. No idea which is better in the long run, if a cat that eats too much or a cat that doesn't want to eat. (Inb4 take your cat to a vet - he was tested by 3 vets who all agreed it's psychological).Anyway I'm glad your cat is fine. It's a big accomplishment to be able to help your cat with the appropriate therapy. There are conditions that remain a mystery and can't be properly treated, therefore they naturally worsen.I can't give you useful advices but I wanted to say that, also props to you for the commitment.
going to have to commit insurance fraud to get my cat treated lads wish me luck
New cat person, what breed that is most similar to pic related? I love chubby cats like this
>>3928329dont make your cat fat you stupid cunt
>>3928336I don’t own a cat retard
>>3928329>>3928340Persian cats, also please don't overfeed any cat to make them fat, diabetes and heart problem are a serious threat
>>3928341Skinny cats are ugly though
Yoooo, check out this cool cat I got for FREE. I literally found it on the ground outside and picked it up. Now it's mine. What a steal.
>>391909311 year old tabby runt has hyperthyroid ism what do?
I'll never understand why people own just 1 cat. 2 cats should be thr minimum because they thrn have a much more fulfilling life.
>>3920472Ay little donnie
>>3927078Hard to clean piece of trash
I started giving my cats those squeeze packets of chicken puree and they love them more than any other treat I've ever given them.I was wondering, because these things are so expensive, could I just get cheaper jars of baby food that have way more puree in them and give them that instead? It has to be pretty much the same stuff, right?
>>3927598All my cats are old too, it's hard when you have spend most of your life with these animals and suddenly they're gone, especially when you go to bed and they're no longer sitting next to you...RIP to your friend. Fuck cancer too. I lost one cat to breast cancer 2 years ago, extremely rare in a spayed cat but she still managed to get it somehow. Knew as soon as I felt the lump on her stomach what it was...The other cat got advanced liver cancer and she declined so fucking fast, and just stopped eating food entirely and that's when I knew it was time to let her go.
>>3928348Skinny cats aren't healthy either.
>>3928512I don't see why not; baby food might be better, honestly, since it's supposed to be free of shittyingredients. Hell, you could even make your own if you have a pressure cooker and blender.
>>3928406Its coat looks very clean and neat. Are you sure it isn't an outdoor cat that belongs to someone else?>>3928451Because every pet comes with responsibilities. What if both cats get sick at the same time? I mean you have to see the big picture, not just the fun part.>>3928410What did your vet say?
Why does she smell so good bros
This is Hocus, he is significantly strange.
>>3928406Don't steal someone's outdoor cat
So I've noticed my cat licks her back a lot, and I was brushing her the other day and she has some weird dandruff like thing. You guys know what it could be?>inb4 take her to the vetShe's extremely aggressive to anyone other than me and she wont let even me carry her around for long so just taking her out of the house is completely out of the question, and no, there is no house visit vets in my shithole.
>>3928501What's the alternative
Yea, a metal bowl that you clean regularly. Plastic doesn't show mould as well
That's my girl hitlerina
>>3928659>>3928749I'm an eastern yuro living in a commie block jungle. Nobody has outdoor cats here. We don't live in houses in suburbs you see in the US for example. I was actually trying to be funny, but in reality there was a storm and the cat was meowing cuddled up in the corner. Went to check on it and it didn't want to leave me, so I just snagged it. You guys should know cats are based and clean animals. It was scruffy when I got it, but after one week of feeding it did it's own thing and is now silky smooth. Didn't wash her or anything.
To this day I don't know if I did the right thing by not saying "I think that is my neighbor's lost cat" when I saw a video of her on /pol/ humor thread.I wonder if I missed my chance for justice or did the right thing by not trusting /pol/. Guy said he was searching for the video's origin so there was a chance at the time I could have mentioned exactly where to look. . . problem is I don't trust /pol/.
>>3928451MONEYCats cost money.It's responsible to not have more then you can care for.I believe at least 2 is humane bc people have jobs and cats are home alone all day, but damn some people just cannot afford a second, much more even care for 2.
Bros I smelled my cat and she has the old lady smell my older now dead cat had for yearsThis cant be happening bros shes like 10 shes still a baby
Hitlerina is 4 years old and shows no signs of slowing down. Still asks me to play catch up and hide and seek. It doesn't work most of the times anymore because she hides at a place I can't get her and stays there until I leave and then appears inviting me to do the same thing again. She also never learned to pull the lever to open the window, which she did once when she was younger and I thought she was smart.
>>3929064>She also never learned to pull the lever to open the windowThat's a good thing. I have to lock my bedroom door, because my favorite cat is 200 IQ and can open it on his own.
>>3929064>>3929067My cat is generally a retard, unable to do much without me, but sometimes he suprises even me when he got into the balcony which the door and windows to were locked.
>>3929087Hope he didn't jump off, because I know a certain retard that let his cat fall off his balcony three fucking times.
>>3929067 The lever is on the inner side of the room
>>3929090>Hope he didn't jump offNah, he was there just standing looking around, though got scared as shit when i found him, he no longer is there anymore after that time thankfully. Maybe being alone in the dark cold balcony scarred him or something
>>3929094>being alone in the dark cold balconyThis triggered my ptsd.
>>3928916It could have been a house cat that got lost and walked for miles then arrived in your area. In any case that's not important: you did well giving it a shelter. If you are willing to take proper care of it then nothing else matters.>>3928967What is the story of that cat?>>3928977My cats are >10 years and smell fine. There's no such thing as 'old lady smell', are you sure she didn't take a nap on a bad smelling blanket or something
>>3929118>It could have been a house cat that got lost and walked for miles then arrived in your areaAnon I don't think you know how eastern europe works.
My cat sniffed a Lilly petal that was on the ground, someone sent me flowers and I was trying to figure if they were lillies and the dumb bastard saw a petal and ran to bat it around I stopped him but he sniffed it am I fucked? It's been 2 hours and he's just chilling like always I don't know how long it takes to show signs of poisoning I don't want to take him to the vet over nothing because it's 300 dollars just to look at him but I was supposed to go somewhere to work on my car and I'm too scared to leave him alone
>>3929298Cat's can get poisoning from flowers?
>>3929307Just lillies if they eat the flower it can cause them kidney failure
Can you keep spotted cats as pets?
>>3928699My cat smells like fresh carpet I don't know why
>>3928973True. Must suck to be poor or not have a good priced vet. I have a chihuahua who got incredibly sick and stayed in the vet for 8 days and the bill was only 360. The only problem was the vet was 5 hours away, but even with premium gas ans 30 mpg it was still cheaper than any vet around here. 600 bucks just to get my other chihuahua looked at/stabilized when her calcium crashed.
>>3928341I know, but it's chonky...they're just so adorable
>>3928341>>3929338Need advice on my cat as I'm a first time cat owner. My cat has been throwing up her food lately I think I'm over feeding her. But she's not really.. Fat? She's just a lil chunky. But recently I cut back on her food and she lost a ton of weight. Nothing unhealthy she still has the conk but she's just way lighter than I remembered.. Question is do you guys have like a strict diet for your cats and if so how is it? I literally just dump more food when her food is gone.
>>3929344I can't really help you. I'm a first time cat owner myself and she is only 6 months old.I just really like fat cats, i just want to hug them lolAnyway, i feed her breakfast, lunch and dinner at the same hours as i eat. She then has a bowl filled with dry food that she snack in between meals, and during the night.Then it depends, on some days she might eat a lot, but then int he following days she will eat much less, and then eat normal again for soem days.After she eats, if she is still hungry, she wil climb to the table and try to eat some of my or other people's food, if she's not hungry, she will leave the kitchen and lie down on the couch.
>>3929309Fucking gayass flower. Good thing I'm not a fag and never have flowers at home. If my cat died to a flower I'd kill myself.
I have always loved cats until we got a new kitten. I despise him but everyone in my house loves him. I want to get rid of him so bad. He pees all over my room (but nowhere else in the house), destroys all paper he sees (things I have on my bulletin board and homework have all been completely destroyed), he eats plants and constantly needs to be sprayed and yelled at, he's constantly going where's he's not supposed to be like on tables and on the stove top, and he's super aggressive. He'll jump and attack your leg when you walk past him through the hallway and all night he'll run and jump all over my dad's bedroom and scratch him during the night. He's not allowed in my room because I'm sick and tired of him. We have two other cats, an 11-year-old cat who's extremely well behaved and a 1-year-old cat who was a stray up until 5 or 6 months ago who is way better behaved. The problem cat is 5 or 6 months old and is the son to the stray cat. What do I do about him? I despise him and desperately want to get rid of him.
>>3929298Can a cat die from just sniffing a toxic flower? All you can do is to keep an eye on him for the next hours, don't make other plans for the day.>>3929344Initially I used to refill the bowls when I saw them empty, I believe this made them addicted to food now that they are old kots.I learned to schedule-feed them with a chart to set the correct daily dose based on the weight. Quality of food is also important, try not to use cheap commercial brands and don't vary once you've found what is suited for her.>>3929371First off you put the important stuff you don't want him to destroy in a drawer or a cabinet.Second: buy a specific enzyme cleaner to remove the piss odor/stains. Even if you don't smell it anymore, the uric acid lasts for a long time and the kitten can detect it. It's the only way if you want him to stop peeing in your room. Simultaneously, tell your family to teach him how to use the litter in a correct way.Third, be patient. Some young cats are mcat that was a little ore energetic than others.My current cat is a former little devil, my mother even went as far as suggesting to put him up for adoption but I insisted on waiting; one year later he did a 180 - he's not so cuddly, but he's a chill and quiet cat that hurts no one.
>>3929580>Some young cats are mcat that was a little ore energetic than others.whoopsSome young cats are more energetic than others*
>>3929580Thanks for the enzyme stuff, I'll get that. We have a ridiculous amount of plants though, no matter how high we put them he finds a way to parkour his way up to eat them. He's not neutered yet if that makes a difference.
>>3929598Oh yeah definitely, neuter him. He's around 6 months old, right? Time to get him neutered. It'll sensibly reduce the territorial behavior.
>>3919593The shadow cast on the toilet makes it look like a cat head
First time cat owner, is it normal when my cat hunches his back and jumps back while his ears point to the side?Is he angry, annoyed, whatever
This thread is so sad...so many anons having their cats dying. I hope you all can hang in there somehow.I love my cat so much, i don't want her to die :( she is so lovely, not once she turned aggresive towards me, not once she hide away when she came to my house.Thankfully she is still very young, but fuck me, this thread made me so depressed.
>>3929606>>3929618CUTE CUTE CUUUUUTE
>>3929612Like pic related?
Look guys can you post the most cutest picture of your cat? It makes me happy and I feel a little down today.. Make your cute cats make me happy please.. I beg of you.
>>3929635Yeah, he does that sometimes
>>3929639Pic rel is the kitten I can't stand. His two redeeming features is that he's incredibly soft and very cute.
>>3929654>>3929654HAHAHAHAHAHA SOOO CUUUTE. Do you ever cuddle with him? How about kissies on the forehead?
>>3929639And then this is my favorite cat. She's a grouchy old lady and also my most favorite animal ever.
>>3929656Your granny cat looks so young and cute! She looks very floofy and healthy. Do you give her snacks? She looks like she deserves it.
>>3929655He does not like to be cuddled. Yes I kiss him on the forehead even if he hates it and I love hugging him and burying my face in his fur. He hates it so much but he's just too soft to resist.
>>3929659>He does not like to be cuddled. Yes I kiss him on the forehead even if he hates it and I love hugging him and burying my face in his fur. He hates it so much but he's just too soft to resist.LOOOL when the cat hates the love it makes it even better Hahahahaha what a cute!
>>3929658Yes, she loves human food. Anything I eat I will give her a bite of, and she'll eat almost everything too. She especially likes bread, meat, and anything with butter on it, but she will still eat fruit like jam and bananas sometimes too.
>>3929663Oh that's so adorable!! Your cat has such a huge appetite :)
>>3929650It is a defense stance, it could be that you scared him. A sudden movement or a noise.Kittens sometimes do that when they play.
