TCC News

 Rocio:  See this ratty-looking scratching post?  If I scratch on it, I get a treat.  I am trying to decide if it is worth the trouble.  Bambino, Jose and I are all exceited.  Mom finally put in our applications to join the Tabby Cat Club and Gracie said we could consider ourselves unofficial members until her computer comes home from the computer hospital.  Yay!
 Bambino:  I am trying to decide if I want to give Jose a whap for trying to take my sparkle ball that was dipped in nip.  See my raised paw?  I am the only full tabby cat here.  The rest of you are tuxie-tabbies or Russian Blue tabby.
 Jose:  Mom has been trying and trying to get a picture of me full face with my eyes open, so you can see what she calls my Egyptian eyes.  This is as close as she has come so far.  My eyes are a light green and with  my brown eye-liner I look quite exotic.
 Oja:  Ha!  I have you all beat.  Everyone should go right over to the Tabby Cat Club and look at the wallpaper.  That's me!  Right there!
Spyro:  All this excitement!  I was the first to join and tuxie-tabbies are just as tabby as full tabbies.  No that is not a smudge of Stinky Goodness under my nose.  That is just part of my markings.  I am getting screen door whiffies and trying to figure out how I can get outside without my harness.  Mom is getting too fast for me and I hardly escape at all any more.

Karen Jo:  Thank you all for the good advice on calming things down between Rocio and Oja.  I have been basically letting them work it out, until Oja yowls.  I don't want a full-fledged fight.  Until the Feliway arrives, which will probably be a waste, because it is finally open window season here and the sockets where I could plug it in are right under the windows, I have tried Brian's suggestion of acting the MomCat.  Rocio got Oja cornered in the litter box room last night, so I got behind him down on all fours and hissed at him and chased him into the bathtub.  This morning, he tried it in the computer room and got I down beside Oja, facing Rocio and hissed at him again.  He ran away and hasn't been a pest to Oja since.  I don't think this means that the problem is solved, but it is working.

Whatever works, we say!

Say, could you post a video of your Mommy on all fours chasing and hissing? Heh-heh!

MOL, what Prancer said! It probably works better than my human yelling at Binga when she beats up too much on Boodie.

Fuzzy Tales said...

LOL @ Prancer's comment.

Our human has hissed at us all at one point or another (including her angels Chum and Annie), but for the most part we've just looked at her like she's nuts. Maybe it's the getting down on all fours that's needed. Boy, we'd like to see that! She says she could get down, but she might not get back up so easily anymore. Ha!

Here's hoping for peace in the house!

There's a homeopathic product that Derry gets sprinkled onto his canned food, from PetAlive.com -- it's called PetCalm. It's granules, comes in a small bottle. He gets their UTI-Free twice a day but the PetCalm only once a day, so we can't say for sure it really helps--twice a day probably would be better. (He just has a nervous and fearful disposition.)

Good luck with the Feliway -- we've not had much luck with that, but we know others have. Do pet supply stores still sell the calming collars?

Oh, and we wanted to add that we absolutely LOVE the new header--looks like Ann's work and she really did a spectacular job!
