Re: cat news


I don't deserve any commendation. I just do what I can, and often don't do it well.

Does your friend have multiple litter boxes? I was told early on that the best thing was one per cat, plus one. It seems to work. I've had one per cat plus 2 until recently. We now have 6 for 4 cats, since we have one exclusively for the little guy.

I really give you credit for going the extra mile for your pets. I've just received another email from a friend who says her son has to get rid of their younger cat because the older one doesn't like it, so it's not using its box. I do realize behavioral problems are a pain, but most of the time they can be worked through. Too many people think pets are disposable.

I'm glad that there are some treatment options for you, even though I wince
at the cost, having recently started the series of vaccinations on the
kitten, and booster for Diesel, to the tune of about $170 for the first and
$40 for the second.  That's on top of the $86 for tests and such  for the
kitten when he was vomiting every hour or so and only weighed 14 ounces.

Scooter (the kitten) is now up to 4 pounds. That's a good thing. When I had him in 3 weeks ago he only weighed 2.4, still prey-sized for the rat snake
that's in the house someplace.

I don't know if I wrote that E.T. is now part of the family. There are still
some hisses and chases, but no fights. He's behaving very well toward the
kitten, too. Who would have thought that a 20 pound fighting blur of claws
could ever be such a pussycat?
