I'd have to say cats are just awesome. Sure, throwing a frisbee at one usually results in it just twisting around in the air and then running away, but they're much better than dogd

Cats

Honestly, if I didn't have a cat, I don't know what I'd do. It's amazing how much they fill me with love every day. It just never gets old.

My cats real names are Will and Roscoe.

Will-- Willis, Willard, Wilber, Schmoopie and Baby. He answers to Will, Willis and Baby best. Will is the talker of the 2.

Roscoe--Roscsie, Ski, Ski-ball. He only answers to Roscoe. Roscoe is so wierd. Whenever someone sneezes he lets out a low litte "meerrrow."

...have you guys heard of medical insurance for your pet?....from what I hear, it is very affordable and it will protect you from those huge bills in your pet needs medical attention..like surgery.

My job offers health insurance for pets. Unfortunately you still have to pay all the fees up front and then you send in a claim and they reimburse you. I don't know if it's like that for any other pet insurance.

She's going in Monday to get checked for UTI. I'm kinda hoping it's that b/c that would be the easiest solution. Melissa says she has used the litter box and when we got her, I had to cat-sit for the first few hours and she used the temporary litter box I gave her in my room. I thought maybe she just needs her own box, but how do you keep three others from going in? It's weird b/c she only pees in three places - the bathrooms and Melissa's room. So she never pees on the actual carpet b/c the bathrooms are lino and Melissa's room has crappy indoor/outdoor carpet. We were thinking of putting something down where she pees, but we can't put anything on the bathroom floors or it will get damp and moldy (she pees right where we step out of the tub, either on the mat or on the lino of the mat's not there).

ETA: we found that site already and are going through the possibilities. Hopefully we can figure out what her problem is!

We have five kitties, they're getting on in years but they're still sweet and lovable.

Update: she was at the vet all day. She had blood in her urine and a UTI. She has to have amoxicillin twice a day (the same pink bubble gum goo I took for chronic ear infections as a kid). They said she's probably just VERY picky, especially being the new cat, so she was holding it for so long, she gave herself an infection, an then associated the litter box w/ pain and discomfort. Kinda ironic considering we adopted her from this terrible rescue with over 200 cats living in one house! How clean and picky could she have gotten there?! Ah well, Melissa will just have to clean five litter boxes once a day

Poor kitty Good thing I made Melissa take her (and the check-up, the tests, and medication only cost $60). I wonder if she had it even before we adopted her. Ever since we've had her (and even at the rescue place), she squeals when you pick her up, but if you don't touch her, she will come and nest right on your chest for hours (and has an affinity towards people who don't like cats!). Do you think it's painful for her to be lifted? We always though it was b/c she was feral and would rather come to you herself.

It's possible. I've had a bladder infection before and it hurt! Especially when you try to pee, so she probably associated the pain with the litter box, which is why she would go outside the box. She will be feeling much better after a few days of antibiotics

Your vets are cheap Zoey's initial check up + tests + meds was about twice that.
