For four years, we looked for a house to buy. I wanted a ranch large enough for livestock, far enough away from neighbors to not be disturbed [and not disturb them], outside the city limits and away from stupid laws. We found our perfect home three years ago. For the first year I turned my back and shut the door on many of the homeless looking for a hand-out. The guilt kept me up at night, especially in the winter. I would lie awake wondering if they were lonely, cold, hungry, or even sti...

Cats are a great pet. They are among the easiest animals to care for. My indoor cat went to the vet once since I got her, to have her claws out. They really only require food (though indoor cats will also need a litter-box and all its related work and cost) and a little bit of love. They can do well in small or large spaces (though it depends on the type of cat, more personality than anything else), some like water (there's a breed, don't remember which off the top of my head, Turks?), and all ...
Hey guys, back again with another animal you all might want to check out.  Jythier suggested the...   Domestic Cat (AKA cat, house cat, kitty cat, pussycat...and whatever else you people call them) Felis silvestris catus From the family Felidae, which encompasses all cats large and small. A more mundane topic, but fascinating nonetheless.  I guarantee most people have never though about their cats in an analytical sense.  Hope you enjoy this. The cat does ...

I've grown up with cats all my life, I remember the first one we got when I was 3 years old, and just this past week my parents got another one, a wee little kitten they named "leelon" (after wee-one, I don't know how it is spelled). My mom is a crazy cat lady, haha. She opened a yarn store and named it after one of our cats, MewMew. But because he was older and she wanted to take him to the shop with her she got a new one and named it MewMew as well, which she trained to come and go to the s...

As I was walking home from Walgreens today, I saw my friend John sitting outside his apartment. I stopped to chat, and he told me that there was a kitten around his house. We thought we had seen one a few nights ago, but then we thought it was a neighbor cat. Turns out, it was a kitten and she was, at that moment hiding in a tree. I heard her meow, and saw a ball of white in the tree. We got her out of there, fed her tuna and milk, gave her a bath, some Frontline, and got her home. Of cour...

Just got online tonight and saw an email from my mom (wish she called)...she told me that our cat Dusty put to sleep. Shes back in Northern MN and Im in southern WY. But we talked the other day and she said she was going to bring him in today because he simply hasnt been eating at all and was really boney. Hes always been a skinny cat...about ten pounds or so and on the longer side I guess. Apparently when she took him to the vet, the vet felt huge tumors in his spleen and figured they were ...

Way to go kitty! That's one helluva temper you've got! The park rangers try to relocate a leopard in the wild. The leopard refuses to leave the vehicle, so the ranger pokes it with a stick through the bars, the leopard takes revenge, this is one VERY lucky ranger to have gotten off so lightly!

I managed to get a few pics of Socrates today. He has really grown!
Yesterday we had a horrid incident. Our 4-year cat went nuts and started attacking my cousin. He bit her hand and scratched her arm. He also tried to attack my husband and me... chased us biting and growling.... We locked him up by himself for a night under a vets orders. Today he was back to his cuddley sweet self. We brought him to the vet, spent $200 on blood tests so they can rule out a thyroid or other organic cause. They said it could have been a seizure, and that it would require...

Every now and then I feel it my civil duty to ensure that Polycat.net actually has a post or two about cats. And since this very rarely actually happens, I thought I'd write a nice summary post about the first three months with my little kitten Hobbes. Before I get too far into this, though, let's just all make sure that we know that when I say "summary" I really mean that it's more of a treatise on the matter. So, that said, don't blame me; blame my brain for feeling the need to disclose whatev...

A lot of people say things about cats such as, "They can't help sick, handicapped people the way dogs can." Well, maybe this goes beyond even what dogs can do. COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Apparently, the cat was paying attention when his owner tried to show him how to dial 911. A Columbus, Ohio, man was unable to call for help when he fell out of his wheelchair Thursday, but he says his cat did it for him. Officers said the cat, named Tommy, was lying by a telephone on the living room floor whe...

It's been about two months since I brought Fuzzy home from the hospital. He's had his final follow-ups and been pronounced healthy. He's not going to need the surgery. His hair is growing back. At least it feels like I'm petting a cat again not a naked mole rat or, as his hairs grew in short and wiry initially, a small dog. He's regained the weight he lost. He whimpered after going to the bathroom and strained at the end each time for a good month, but now both behaviors have passed. Somew...
They tell me the entire time I was away, my cat did nothing but cry. Well, at least someone missed me. He's a freaky little thing. He hates to be alone. If I leave the room, you can be sure it won't be long before I glance down and find a grey-and-white fuzz ball laying nearby. He hates it when he can't have access to me. It's not so much that he needs access, he just wants to have it in case he feels like it. I can sympathize with those who had to put up with his non-stop crying spree. So...
