I'm worried now because there was a tiny bit of blood in the little tray this afternoon. Most of the sites I've looked at say that if the problem continues, a vet should be contacted, so I guess I'll ask about it when I call tomorrow morning to register with a vet and set up an appointment for them to have their vaccinations, be microchipped, book spayings, etc.

Meggie! That is an AWESOME cat tree And its such a good sign that they came out and ate all the treats and food, and used the box. They will come around. It might take some time but it sounds like they are already doing well. Most of the time they will be so stressed and confused they may not even eat.

About the blood, try not to worry too much. It could be stress. I just went through this with my cats and for Saki it just was a one day thing, but yeah blood is nothing to mess with so hopefully you can get them their vet appts soon.

Wowzer! (the cat tree) My cats don't have ANY cat tree, but they scratch my furniture and I can't complain since I never taught them otherwise or gave them a scratch post.

Callie used her scratching post from day one--we set her down by it and put her front paws on it. She started scratching, and looked at us as if to say, "I know what this is for, dumb ass!" Fergus, on the other hand, has no interest at all and would rather slide his claws down the door frame by one of the bedrooms. Fortunately, Alex is able to clip Ferg's claws without much fuss.

A couple more pics of LBC (still haven't figured out a better name for him ).





Overall he's doing great. He wanted out really bad yesterday -- yowled and cried at the doors and windows for a few hours. But eventually he got over it and he's better today. I'm sure he'd go if he got a chance, but I'm making sure he doesn't get the chance. He found the bed and loves to sleep on the pillows. Comfort loving little devil.

My house mate had a few scratching things, but none of the cats ever used them. They scratch a few areas on the furniture and some random things that must feel good to them (like a box fan, lol). Beckham and Marijke were front declawed before I got them, so that helps. Posh really only cares to scratch the arm of the couch which is fine with me. I keep her nails dull so it doesn't really matter, she doesn't destroy anything.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that. In fact, I wasn't aware of it at all until I looked at your chair yesterday. I was quite taken aback!

When she was a kitten she destroyed our ugly college house couch. I should dig up the before and after...

A scratching post was definitely mandatory for us. We bought a really nice sofa, chair, and footstool set this year (partly a houswarming/birthday/Christmas gift from Sam's parents). I guess only time will tell if the cat's actually use what we've bought for them.

Biscuit has already investigated the cat tree at least. I put treats on all the levels, and when I opened the door last night to check on the cats, Biscuit was perched on one of the upper levels. She came out yesterday for a bit when Sam and I were both in the room, but Jasmine was too scared and stayed under the futon. This morning I came in to feed them, and both cats crept out.

I bought a scratching post/ cat tree earlier this year, as for some reason Columbus started scratching the lounge suite. Unfortunately he will not go near it Jewel is terrific, and uses it all the time, but Columbus has now managed to WRECK the lounge completely - We are going to have to buy a new one as it is a disgrace!!!

Anybody got any bright ideas about how I can stop Columbus scratching the new lounge?
