I am delighted to read that.

I had a neutered female and later got a male kitten and had him neutered. I still had to put up with the peeing contests. Unfortunately, they didn't stop until my female cat died. She was the instigator - she had occasional fits of inappropriate peeing before I got the kitten. I did consider having her put down, but I just didn't think capital punishment was appropriate for peeing, even if it was on my books.

He's a good kitty! So is Thomas, I love their hijinks. I gave mine a paperbag, they are busy tormenting each other, jumping on it when the other is inside. Makes Shrek jump, too!

My cats love to do that with bags too! Another favorite of their cat toys is a small aspirin bottle (or any with a child-proof lid) with a few paper clips in it (pennies, beads, etc. work too).

that's a great idea, barbara. thanks!

any pics of thomas, babe?

our newest male cat, mush (aka the mushketeer, or the mushine gun) and our oldest male, hercules, will have a shot of old cat milk in thomas's honour.

mush, the norwegian forest cat:


and herc, the maine coon:


btw, even after being "fixed" herc still likes to get it on with the dirty laundry. he grabs a piece of clothing in his teeth, the sweatier the better, drags it into the living room and does his thing with it as he sends out ghostly moans.

Just be sure you put that toy away at bedtime or you'll be waking up at 2 or 3 AM to the noise of cats playing with it.

OMG, I laughed so hard at this! My Tuxedo baby used to get really "happy" when he sat on certain women's laps. He'd do the kneading thing and start to...well, you know. LOL! I didn't think most male cats did that. BTW BT, beauties both of them.

Cool! Thanks for posting the Norwegian Forest Cat pic!
I now believe that Baxter is NOT part Maine Coon... he's a part Weegie!
