    Our tabby opens everything, it is infuriating/cute. He opened the drawer for his little brother yesterday, and then shut him in the drawer lol

  5. Her antibiotics didn’t work. Infection got worse, so they gave us stronger ones to try now :(
     


  6. I’m so happy in my box.
     
  7. So my condo got flooded a few months ago and we are in the process of renovating it through insurance and such, because a lot of the floor got torn up we will get a cockroach (fucking florida) like once a month. My black burmese, poe, is 110% the hunter of my 3 cats and when he spots a cockroach he will start making a VERY peculiar sound that he never makes unless its him hunting a roach (im sure its his noise for hunting anything) he woke me up this morning making the noise and sure enough he had the damn roach in his mouth (good boy but kinda freaky). My question is has anyone dealt with this? I dont have a problem with it but I just find it fascinating that Poe has this super peculiar noise he makes only in the instance he is hunting an insect.

  8. My cat does something similar when he sees birds or rodents or bugs he wants to catch.

    Is it that clicking noise?

    If so, it is because they want to catch whatever it is so badly, that they can’t control that reflex that their body instinctively does. First time I heard our calico do it, I was concerned til I looked it up. It’s almost like when we drool when we smell something good

    She was asleep on me yesterday, and somehow she heard a cockroach crawling on the wall on the other side of the house in her sleep. I was super impressed

    Woke up in the middle of the night to one of my cats coughing up a hairball on my pillow. That was not a fun noise to be awoken by so close to my head lol

    Our cat has been wheezing like she is going to cough up a hairball but then nothing comes out. I hope it's not something I should be worried about..

    Mine have done that occasionally, sometimes they actually cough up a hairball, other times nothing.

  14. I’ve experienced this soooo much with three cats. The worst is when they actually do hack up the hairball on the bed and you roll over into it

    My cat Binx never had her vocal cords fully develop. She was born by a stray, and the entire litter (except her) that was found passed away during their first year of life at different points from water on the brain or other complications. There were 5 or 6, and when I went to see the litter at my boss’s house who was offering the kittens to us, she was the only one that woke up to play and essentially chose me.

    Throughout her growing period, she had this very weak meow that was adorable, yet clearly not a fully working vocal cord. I had her checked out and the vet essentially told me it’s not life threatening, but that she also showed no signs of brain damage. Still to this day I feel very lucky to have her and her unique squeaky voice. When she purrs, I can’t hear it, only feel it.

    It is almost better when you can only feel it, as cute as purrs are. Our tabby doesn’t vocally purr, he just goes into vibrate mood.

    Our other two are very loud purrers

    I put a fitted sheet on the under side of the box spring to protect it.

  24. I ended up having to stick towels and pillows under the bed to block my cat from getting under there. Not because she claws anything but because she’d squeeze under but couldn’t figure out how to squeeze back out and she’d get trapped under the bed and start meowing in the middle of the night until I lifted the mattress and she could jump out....only for her to do it again an hour later

    I just wish I could get my cat to stop biting when she's had enough of being pet, and her loudly scratching at the side of our mattress/bed skirt to wake us up to feed her at 4 in the morning lol. She's so lucky she's cute, she can be a little monster sometimes. Spraying her with water never worked, she'd just run away and come back in less than a minute
