Chloe loves to lie and cover her face with her paw. It's so cute.

That Oscar kitty -- the one in the article about the nursing home -- is going to be on NBC Nightly News in a few minutes.

I loved BW's comment about going home to his dog.


Then again...I love Brian Williams...



Oscar is SUCH a beautiful cat too!!!!!!! Gorgeous face.



Chloe's doing better. She pooped on the couch, but her personality is back to normal. Hopefully she'll return to her litterbox soon and will start losing weight.

I knew you'd see it, u2dem!

He is a very cute cat. I loved the old guy who told how Oscar comes in to check every day, but only stays a few minutes, which he take as a very good sign!


Glad to hear Chloe is feeling better!

I've been hearing about Oscar all day on talk radio. One group thought he should be dressed up in a little grim reaper outfit

OK, so I think Chloe's new diet food makes her constipated, but we've continued to give her the laxatone. I just want her to be healthy!!!!

Maybe trying something on your own could help Chloe. Cut way back on the food (unless she is undernourished) and possibly the laxatone also. Maybe kitty will come around with a little time. Sometimes, procedures vets do to animals are unnecessary and only cause tremendous stress to the animal. This can lead to physical ailments as a reaction, imo. And since anal glands were affected, unwillingness to go could be a logical conclusion.

I don't dislike vets, but I don't think they know as much as they think they do sometimes. I mean, it really is a guess often, in the diagnosis they arrive at. I've had similar experience where I felt the cat would have been better off not seeing the vet.

Hope Chloe feels better soon and gets back to being a lean mean purring machine.

Do you feed her wet food? That could help and you can also add a spoonful of canned pumpkin to the food.

No it's dry, Purina Overweight Management that we just started her on that we have to buy from the vet. It's interesting because we had been giving her 1/2 cup a day of the Iams, but the Purina suggests a cat of her size should be given a full cup a day (we usually break it up, a serving in the morning and a serving in the evening).

Maybe she's afraid to go due to the anal glands, maybe she's constipated, I'm not sure, but I do know she holds it in and it makes her uncomfortable.

My mom has ordered stuff to spray on the couch that she generally goes on that will eliminate any of her odors, because supposedly she keeps going back to the couch because she smells that she has marked it. Until then we have spread aluminum foil out on the couch and that seems to be keeping her away. Now if only she'll use her litterbox.

Well this morning we locked Chloe in the room with her litter box, after about 15 minutes she started pawing at the door so I let her out, and sure enough she had gone in the litterbox


A few hours later she went on her own in the upstairs litter. Hopefully she'll realize she can go in there without problems now.

Alright, Chloe! You don't need no stinkin' vets. Keep up the good work and we'll get you a little mousey to chase.

I'm guessing the aluminum foil is keeping you off the couch also.

Ugh! That's really shitty.

That is really sad, BD. Every day there are ads in the "Absolutely Free" column in our local paper, people trying to get rid of their cats or dogs because they are "moving and can't take them." It really makes me furious! Why did they get the pets in the first place, if they weren't going to take care of them always?
