I had to give Latte a swat for clawing on the couch, I've never swatted her before, but this behavior has been going on for a while. No amount of hollering, shaking pennies in a can or squirting her with water did the trick. Not two seconds later she came over to me purring anxiously and when she realized I wasn't still mad (how could I be) she started her normal content humming. She maketh me nutso!

I had a bath mat that Teddy loved to lay on. He would head right into the bathroom. So I brought it out into the living room and placed it right next to the computer where Spike sits every night. Then I bought new mats for the bathroom.

I also have a very old towel that is thin and worn. So I gave it to Teddy to cover up with. The other night when The Pirate was getting ready to leave he stated, "Let me make Teddy's bed first." You would have thought he was making the bed for Queen Elizabeth. When I told Spike about this, he remarked, "Well who set up the bed in the first place?" I think I have lost it also. All this fuss for a dog that likes to drink from dirty puddles and eat dead pigeons. Tonight his bed remains unmade. After all, I didn't sleep in it, I am not going to make it.

Shreddy update: He is doing quite well. He not only wants to go outside now, he has started peeing outside!

He is being quite picky about food, but is happy to try new foods. I think he was just bored to tears of the canned food I was feeding him. I have added other brands of cat food, baby food, tinned salmon, and tinned tuna.

He sometimes wants some of what I am eating. He was happy with bits of chicken from my chicken wings and he practically demanded bits of steak. This is from a cat who wouldn't eat "people food" for most of his life.

He does have some difficulty with eating. It's not so much the eating as the mess that is left around his mouth and the drool that sometimes gets in his food. I wipe his mouth with a dry dish rag and I change his food if he drools in it. I can blame him for not wanting the food with the drool on it. His water bowl has to be changed several times a day. I think he is rinsing his face and teeth in it.

Great news about Shreddy! Nothing wrong with spoiling him.

I agree. But, he is carrying it pretty far. I bought a tin of "No Name" salmon and he wouldn't eat it. He wants the brand name stuff.

High Maintenance Cat! Teddy turns his nose up at fully cooked roast beef. He wants his rare.

I wouldn't put up with it if he were healthy. Since the vet said, "Weeks", it's not something I'm going to have to deal with for very long.

I don't know for sure. He seems to understand English.

But, the no name stuff didn't look as nice. It had a lot more coagulated white stuff (protein?) on the surface than the Clover Leaf salmon does.

That was my thought.

I want to know how Latte knows the difference between Fancy Feast and ProPlan...she won't touch the Fancy Feast.
