No, you let them grow a little bit more, then you cut - no yanking. If you just cut off what you need, it will grow more chives.

Taxy, I'm so sorry to hear about Shreddy's declining health. That is so tough. Thank you for sharing pics of him, I enjoyed looking at them. He is a beauty and he looks so happy out there in the sunshine.

CG, my condolences on the loss of your grandkitty.

Thank you Cheryl. He didn't want to stay out as long today, but I think it was warmer yesterday. I think the pain med is really helping.

I forgot to give it to him, so I just dashed off and gave it to him. It's a once every 24 hour med and I wouldn't want it to wear off.

Sorry to hear about Dan and Shreddy. It's so hard when our babies get sick.

All you cat experts, I need help.

Monkey, who usually lives up to her name, is suddenly sleeping all day and active all night. I try to get her up for her food and she looks at me and goes back to sleep. Later she will go eat on her own, but not all of it.

On Monday we had one (M2) of the two 9 year olds I sometimes watch on non-school days or after school and she loves Monkey, but picks her up and drags her around too much. The other girl (M1) is very respectful and protective of both Violet and Monkey and they respond in kind. But when M2 is here, Monkey runs for cover as much as she can.

I am worried that this is traumatizing the poor cat who is just 11 months old.

Any suggestions or other ideas to what may be causing these long sleeps?

That article Addie posted got me thinking.

Laurie, I don't know. I do believe that Monkey is getting traumatized. That may be why she is sleeping in the daytime, to avoid the little girl. Cats do sleep a lot. 16 hours isn't unusual for a cat. But, at Monkey's age, I wouldn't think she would sleep that much all the time.

While no expert, I agree with you and Taxy, she's traumatized, and her routine is upset. She may need to be off-limits to the little girl who drags her around, maybe put her in your office when she visits. Beagle is always exhausted after being loved by her human cousins, and it takes awhile for her to recover.
