apologies for this, but perhaps someone here knows of a good home for TinTin?

Originally posted by ashbet at Help TinTin find an only-cat forever home! (Dallas, TX area, will travel)
The placement we'd been hoping for seems to have fallen through, so I'm looking for a home for our beautiful foster girl, TinTin. (As regular readers of my journal know, we started fostering TinTin in November, because her owners needed to leave on an emergency basis from a domestic-violence situation.)

She is a sweetheart, incredibly friendly and people-oriented, loves to be petted, will play fetch with her feather-wand toy, likes to talk once she gets to know you, enjoys drinking from a faucet/cat-fountain, and enjoys being brushed (Maine Coons don't need daily brushing and don't get mats if they're indoor cats, but it helps keep her coat silky.)

She gets along well with older children (12 and up -- she hasn't been around younger children much, so I couldn't swear to that), she's fine with dogs, but she needs to live in an *only-cat household* -- we'd be adopting her ourselves, but unfortunately she had been bullied by a younger male cat in her previous home, and because of that, she has been aggressive with our young male cat (chasing, not fighting, but he's scared of her, and I'm having to keep them separated, so this can't be a permanent placement for her.)

She's six years old, FeLV and FIV-negative, she's up-to-date on her shots, we have her complete medical records, our vet says she's healthy and in good shape, she's 15.5 pounds, she's microchipped (and the chip info can be transferred to her new owner), and she would make a *wonderful* companion animal for anyone who is willing to let her be the only cat in their home -- in return, she'll lavish you with affection and joyous floof! :)

More pics here!

Please contact me at ashbet@gmail.com if you are interested -- and I am making this post public, so please share far and wide!!

one of my cats has recently been diagnosed with a heart condition which will require life-long medication.

has anyone else had a cat/pet that required daily medication? got any advice/tips/stories? any useful hints to help Tilly take her meds?

i contacted LJ Support asking for the spam to be deleted (DONE!) and wondering how to add a mod/maintainer because ours was AWOL - and they removed the previous mod and added me.

so hi!

i've never moderated an active community before so please bear with me!

firstly, i'd like to introduce myself. i'm Tal, i have (currently) one cat with plans to adopt more, and i've known i didnt want kids since i was in my early teens. i've been lurking here for a while now, and read LJ most days.

secondly: i'd like some volunteers to help run catsnotkids - i think we'd only need one or two, prior mod experience a bonus :) edit: i think i'll see how active the community is, before asking for co-mods.

thirdly: what are people's opinions about moderated membership (i have to approve people before they can post) or moderated posting (i have to approve every post) or both? would you prefer one, the other, both or neither?

Due to constant spam and the fact that both moderators have been inactive since at least 2008.

Ok, I can't copy this as a story for the linkaphobes because of the embedded images, but it really is worth it. Basically, a couple has created a Christmas tree entirely around their cats. I am seriously interested in trying it next year.


The clincher, after all the pics that will make you go "awwww", is:

Confession time: The only real reason that we bother putting up a tree at all is for the cats. Yes, we actually bought our decorations with them in mind! Everything is shatterproof, bright, and is easily batted around the house. Most of the decorations are balls, and we find them all over the house for *months* after the tree gets put away. The cats really love it, as you’ve seen!

Subject: De-shedding tools!
Security: Public
Hello everyone! I just bought the THIRD useless brush at petsmart so I thought I would ask for help this time. I have a short haired siamese/tabby mix with an incredibly thick coat. He sheds ALL of the time. I just pet him once and my hand is covered in fur. I could brush him for hours and it doesn't seem to make a difference. I'm thinking about buying a steel brush. Does anyone have any recommendations for a great de-shedding tool? I'm trying to shop for one on amazon and so far I've seen on called the 'furminator' that seems to have gotten great reviews. Any recommendations? Thanks in advance!!!

Is it possible for me to have two cats in a carrier when flying? Or do they need seperate carries?

My two girls and I are moving to Korea in a year, so I want to keep an eye out for a good deal on airline-approved carriers. Due to various factors, it's very likely my girls will end up in the cargo hold, and I just think it would be safer and more comfortable for them to let them share one large crate, as opposed to two small carriers. Of course, I'll call the airlines as the time approaches, but I'd thought I'd ask around first.

Does anyone have experience flying with multiple cats?

Anyone have any tips on how to make it easier to brush my cat?

She hates being brushed. I've had her for three years and its always been a struggle to keep her groomed.
