Okay, so we brought in a stray cat we found at the gas station. It was pregnant and had five kittens. Two males, three females, Both males are orange, two femals are grey and the other female is black. We caught one of the oranges ones trying to... Well you know, to the black one... So we took both males in to get the front claws taken, and get them neutared. They had to stay overnight so I didn't see them for a day. They came back home, and for no reason, the Mom cat (who gave birth to the kittens) hissed at both of the males. Then later, the three female cats started hissing at the males, and their still doing it, the orange ones havent done anything, they were only gone for one night? Are they suppose to now start hissing at each other? I was thinking maybe because they were around other cats that they might of gotten the other cats scents on them and possibly the other cats dont like it? The oranges ones are staying away from the other cats, and i'm trying my best to keep them away from each other aswell. I hope they stop hissing soon.

There is no reason to have their fingers removed at the first joint. Maybe I should take some bone cutters and cut all your fingers off at the first knuckle then make you walk around on them the rest of your life starting the day I cut them off. There was absolutely no reason whatsoever to abuse them that way.

Actually, jimbo, the idea is catching on with vets not to declaw cats. My vet refuses to declaw along with several other vets in my area. The cat in my advatar is a feral cat who right now is head-butting with me and mewing for attention. How could I abuse a lover like this one? grrrrrrrrrrrr..he's now eating my dinner, the lil stinker. lol He never uses his claws other than to grab at me when I'm ignoring him and he's demanding attention. He attacks his floor-to-ceiling scratching post with relish. Sorry bout the rambling. I love talking bout my animals.

Ok, now this is really weird. I renamed this cat from Tiger to Tigger after watching him jump 8' straight up the day after we adopted him from a fellow mylotter here. He came to me feral and I took the time and patience to teach him that I'm not going to hurt him. To learn that a scratch behind the ears or under the chin actually feels great. He just turned 1 this month and loves to get into trouble cause trouble means more attention from mommy.

My Tigger loves to be massaged. That's one of the things I did with him while taming him. Now he will jump up on my desk and let out tiny mews to let me know he wants a massage. It's become routine which I love cause we are bonding even more. He's momma's boy but will tolerate other ppl long as they scratch his itchy spots. lol He don't want to hurt anyone. What he does now is if he doesn't like you doing something, he will put his mouth on you like he's going to bite and will let out small growls but won't bite down. If I'm giving him attention and make like I'm leaving, he will reach out with a paw to stop me and look up as if to say 'Please don't stop.' Likes to be held but he's not really a lap cat. Loves to play but only on his terms. I adopted a kitten about 4 mos ago in hopes he will bond with Tigger and become his new pal. My old cat, Lightning, bonded very quickly with Tigg and when he passed away, Tigger grieved for a long time and even self-mutilated himself till he would bleed. I believe he is still grieving but not as much cause he now will sneak out once in a while but only to look for Lightning then want back in. Simba and Tigger now have bonded and they do everything together, including drive me insane.

Why oh why did you mutilate her feet? DO you not know what declawing is? www.declawing.com and yes, they will hiss at each other. They smells trange. Shame on your for declawing. Guess you either 1. Don't care what it is or 2. Don't care about the physical pain your cat is going to be in. Did you know most of Europe has banned declawing? Did you know that most vet schools won't teach it anymore? Did you know that West Hollywood, CA has banned declawing? Shame on you!
