Latté loves socks that I have worn. Smudge likes her little cubby that I put a used towel in to sleep on.

That is very sweet!

I have to say this: I do hope you do not have the athlete's foot problem. We shall be looking of photos of a hairless cat and wondering what you did to the poor cat!

With love,
~Cat

Taxy, Shreddy makes such a funny "stoner". But he's a cutie in his GlamCat shot. Hope everything goes well for him (and you and Stirling) this coming week.

We've been really lucky with each of the two cats we've had. Neither have minded a litter change (LittleBit will still use her pan even if there is very little left since I don't add to the reusable litter when I'm ready to dump-and-clean the pan), a change in food to the point where I can open a bag of something different and dump it right into the bowl, and being scratched anywhere. Cats don't like having there tummy or tail touched? Pshaw! Not ours.

Pshaw? I like this! It is like "Fooooo!"

Misty and Kali like their tummy rubbings, just like Azia does. Their foods are normal. They have the dry Iams and the treats and the canned food also.

I like to play with them very much! I have the laser pointer for the cats, and many toys for Azia.

I dump away the litter and clean their boxes with bleach and refill them every two days. Misty and Kali seem to have this very robust pooping ability.

Your cats seem much like mine, Cooking Goddess.

Cats and dogs are such wonderful companions!

With love,
~Cat

CG, my dear departed cat, loved her belly rubbed, she would flop down and verbally invite you to rub her tummy. She also like her tail gently tugged. She really was a sweet cuddly kitty I miss her. :(

I am very sorry for your loss, Somebunny. She seems as a wonderful cat.

I understand how you miss her. I would, also.

With love,

I have an internet friend (met her on a forum in 1996) who had a cat who was a terror at the vet. It was next to impossible to treat her, when it was necessary. Of course this was also very upsetting to the cat.

Now, when she gets a new cat or kitten, she starts right away getting them used to stuff. She starts trimming claws, touching tummy and tail. She carries them around and she dresses them in clothing. They don't panic at the vet. They don't panic at wearing the cone. If she ever needs a cat to wear something, they are already used to it.

I think I will make sure that the next cat that comes to live with me gets used to "stuff" too. I will probably even take a new cat for car rides. Poor Shreddy gets so upset about the car ride part of going to and coming home from the vet.

My cats get upset also! Maybe I should think of this.

I would be in desperate need of blood transfusions if I made my cats to wear things!

Taxlady, when NASA finds your glowing mushroom cloud, may I please call CNN? I plan to write books one day and I need the required 15 minutes of fame for which to fall back upon during my career.

With love,
~Cat

Sure, go ahead and phone CNN.

How old are your cats? Are you sure they wouldn't wear something? I once, as joke, put a ruffled collar on a cat, and he didn't mind at all, much to my surprise.

I might try putting some kind of clothing or scarf on Shreddy. I was mistaken about her cats not minding the cone. They don't need it. One cat licks sores excessively, so if she gets a sore, my friend makes her wear something that covers the sore. Another cat licks off his flea medicine, so he has to wear something that covers his neck when he gets flea drops.

Latté will wear anything I tie around her neck, she gets purple ribbons a lot.
