Kitties!!

Recommended Posts

That works! I also get a kick out of the stories where a cat forms a friendship with an odd companion, like a duck.

Time for some kitten cuteness. This is Darwin, the dad, meeting his kittens for the first time:

The kittens were only 13 days old in that picture. Their eyes had just opened a couple of days earlier. Mom, Curie, is behind them.

I’m not sure if I posted this before or not, but these are the “stud pants” that I have to use on Darwin and Pascal. Having two intact males is not recommended practice unless you have a very large cattery, but I couldn’t pass on the opporunity when I saw Darwin and Curie listed on a classified ads site.

They really look like a thong! :lmao:

Is that how you keep the two males from fighting?  Don't they want to fight each other?

No, I have to keep them separate. Darwin lives upstairs and Pascal is downstairs. We have a glass wall and they jump at each other through the glass!

Haha.  I remember growing up with male cats that they'd always show up with wounds on them from time to time.  Some of those wounds were gnarly.

I’ll get my cats spayed and neutered once I stop breeding them. That will probably be sooner rather than later. There are way too many kittens available and people don’t care about purebred cats.

They do, but either can't afford them, don't know how to look after them, or are not allowed to keep cats in their abode. Or a little peturbed about that large dog down the road.

Around here the mixed breed dogs are really popular. People will spend $3000 for a mixed breed dog, but not even half of that on a purebred cat.

Far too lazy to do anything like that. Once tried to ask a question on it, and it got knocked back because it wasn't of the type "How high is the sky?" or "why isn't the Earth flat?" 

Quora: 1. Schtearn: 0.

Getting on the banned wagon for one more. It's the kind of question that pops up in the Quora Digest- but there's a bit more going on in this one- for someone with a little more background experience?

Spoiler

Every time I go to bed at night, the cat gets up out of where she is resting, and goes to her bowl for a late night snack, after which she returns to her sala. What causes her to do that?

What’s a “sala”? Anyway cats are not dogs. Yeah, no kidding, but people are more familiar with dogs and expect the same behaviour. You can’t crate cats for the night, like you can with dogs. Anyway the pattern for cats is hunt, eat, sleep, so you need to mimic that if you want them to follow a pattern. Personally, I don’t. In a domestic situation, hunt is replaced by play, so you need to play with your cat, eat is obvious, as is sleep. As I said, I don’t follow the pattern. I leave food down all the time for my cats and I have a toy box for them so they can grab their toys and play when they want. The ones that have access are only too happy to join us in bed when they’re done playing and eating.

Her royal abode. Well, a number of places- my bed,  any of the armchairs- or there is just her "room" where her food bowls are.

She's actually quite tolerant of me- and, for the moment at least, seems a lot happier than the other cat. Might get a piccy in.  :)
