Gray cats have such beautiful fur.

It's probably not the actual nail but the 'shell' of the nail. Which happens when they sharpen their claws on stuff. I imagine you got her some goodies like a scratching post, toys etc?

Yup, she's got toys, and a few scratchy things. So far she's been scratching the carpet. And hasn't peed or poo'd yet.

Did you just get her today? It might take a day at the very most for her to go.

Yup, today. That's good to know - thanks! I was starting to worry that kitty had left a surprise for me when she was stuck inside the couch.

she hasn't eaten yet either, but she's had some water at least.

It's going to take her a little bit to get used to her new environment.

Jack lived under my couch the first few days I had him. I was upset because I thought he didn't like me, but he'd purr when I'd reach back there and pet him. I put his litterbox right there and slid food to him on a paper plate and water in a little bowl, and he slowly started to come out as he felt more comfortable. Now he only hides under there when I vacuum

This is Corkscrew (note her tail in the second picture). That name is NOT staying.



Aww .

Yay, a new interference cat!

Apparently Chloe is still demanding babyfood even though she's been fully healed for about 2 weeks now

My parents are trying to ween her off of it but she acts insulted when she doesn't get any with her regular food

Did you pick a new name yet? "Corkscrew", hehe.

Marijke was "Coondog"
Posh was "Cody"
Maximus was "LeRoy"
Kenya was "Lamb Chop" or "Chopper"
Beckham....gosh I can never remember, I'd have to pull his chart.....
Eden stayed Eden, RIP
Loki did not have a name
I called the tree rescue Princess, but her adopter calls her "Keena"

The other day I got the urge to adopt an orange cat and name it Carrot Stick.

What an adorable kitty, corianderstem! She'll get you trained soon enough.

When I moved my MiloGuido cat wouldn't come out of the cat carrier (except for food -- MiloGuido will do anything for food) for days. All the cats were pretty wigged out, but poor MG was the most traumatised. I'm not sure if he's still ever been out of the bedroom and attic area for the rest of the house and it's been two years. That area is pretty large (the attic runs the length of the house and is finished, and the bedroom is decent sized too), so I don't feel too bad for him. He sleeps on me every night and purrs his little cat heart out, so I figure he's happy.


Chloe sounds as if she has your parents wrapped around her little paw, u2dem! One of my cats (Max) is sometimes a very picky eater, so I always have a few cans of the Hills Perscription a/d canned food around to tempt him. The only problem with that is once he has that for a few feedings, it's hard to get him back to his regular food!

Well, I'm going to call the cat by any term of endearment no matter what she's called, so I don't suppose it matters all that much.

I've already been calling her "Sweet Pea," "Peanut" and "Beanie" (most of my grandma's cats were called "Beanie," which came from some family in joke long ago).

I did add "Curly" to the list.

Pretty kitty, Cori! Awwwwwww . . . .
My cousin has six cats (three of them Siamese rescues). A while back one of them had some dental work done, so Shar started feeding the cat by hand, in the bathroom with the door closed, away from the other cats. It turns out that she is now feeding all three of the Meezers by hand, in the bathroom, away from her three other cats.
