Hi Kitties and Pups,
As you know, I have been on a little vacation and I am somewhat behind so
lets get started with our questions!
The question I am most concerned about has come from Cloud who is worried about his cat, Boomer. Boomer, it seems is eating cobwebs and Cloud wonders if it is safe. I did quite a bit of research on this Cloud, but what I found from one professional person is this:
Since spiders catch various insects, etc., in their webs, I'd not allow her to eat the webs as they and their contents can cause digestive and intestinal problems in your cat's system.>> So that is it, call in Molly Maids or get rid of the cobwebs somehow. Do let us know if Boomer is doing OK.
The Splorin' Wolfies wrote asking my why I am scared of Stella and retreat when she misbehaves. Why not fight back? Ah Wolfies, that is an easy question for a dog that stands three feet tall and weighs about 200 lbs . First of all, I am not nearly as scared of Stella as I was once. I have learned that I am smarter than she is, that I can run faster in the house, and can jump much higher. As far as trying to fight her, it would be like a puppy fighting a bear. Just not smart. We'll be fine, thanks!
Martha and Bailey asked if I liked to dance when listening to my favorite Samba music. Why, Martha, of course, it is the most danceable music in the world. I think everyone would be happier if they danced a little every day, either alone or with a partner. My partner? Always my secret!
Steve,Kat and Wilbur wrote their cat Wilbur, continues being rude and they feel they are not thinking bad thoughts of him, or that he is attacking Steve when Kat dislikes him more. This cat bites their Mom!
Steve, I really think someone should get this cat some psychiatric counseling. I don't feel a family should have to live with this kind of abuse. He may need to go off to an institution for a while until he gets straightened out. He may require a program that will bring his whole family to sessions. Its hard to say, but I will say this cat needs some serious help.
Florida Sundogs Trio wrote about a cat who went berserk in their home, knocking things down, breaking plants , a large picture, and lamps. Trio, this is very hard to imagine a cat that is so totally out of control. Was she alone during this time? Does she have weather fears or noise fears? What do you think started this? Is this something she has done before? You need to give this some serious thought and regain control of this cat. I say she did it out of fear, and you might want to think about what she is afraid of and how to change it. Let me know what you have done and tell me more.
Max of South Africa was concerned about Cloud's question and wondered if Boomer is just trying to confuse the Cloud. I suppose that would be easy enough to do, Max, but they are observing Boomer's behavior and seem very concerned. You asked me is it correct not to trust a cat? What does correctness have to do with this, Max? You trust those you find trustworthy and don't trust those you don't. If you are suggesting cats are devious, well, we have to be sometimes. But I don't think that applies here.
Mom's friend Khyra wrote about our possibility of a pet activated camera and wondered if it is (in her interesting language) a khollar kham? Thats a collar camera for those of you who don't speak khyraese.
Khyra I am sorry we have nothing to report this time. I had hoped to have it this week but because of my trip to Brazil, I didn't get anything done on it. I will work this week and see if I can't report on it next time. We want something that would be operable at all levels, which would rule out the khollar kham.
KB wrote saying she didn't know that cats knew about so many things . ..maybe I need a cat in my life!
KB, I think a cat in your life would be very restful and pleasant to have around. And lets see, you have three big dogs, right? Order three muzzles and all should work out fine.
Thanks to everyone for writing and I love reading your mail! A special thanks to my good friend Huffle Mawson who loves to tell me I am wise and who doesn't like to hear that!
