I took Punkin back to the vet today. This time I requested her regular vet. He looked her over (couldn't find any fleas) and found a couple red places on her belly where she's licked off the fur. It seems Punkin has developed some kind of allergy and it would be difficult to tell from what. He gave her a med strength dose of cortisone and said to wait and see how she does for the next 2 weeks or so. If cats are anything like humans are when it comes to steroids, she'll be ready to whip the world!!! :lol:

Anybody need some herbal flea powder?? I have 3 containers of it now. :rolleyes:

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Christy,

I have a question about my cat, Kitty. She does funny things that I don't understand. Like, she loves to throw herself on the floor and lay on her back, right by a person's feet as they're walking or sitting. And, when I'm walking thru the hallway or stairway, if she's blocking my path, she won't move. Does your cat do these things too?

Hi Razz,

Oh yes!! I think it's their way of showing they are happy and feel safe with the person. At least, that's what I've read. It's also a way of getting attention.

What blows my mind is my cat Punkin. If I am in the room where the litter boxes are and she has to go, she'll wait for me to leave before she gets in the box. Talk about finicky!!!

Razz and Christy,

My Shelly does the same thing. She'll just flop down on the floor and roll around on her back like a dog. Funny though, she doesn't like it when we pet her on the tummy. Only her head and back. Lol

Sadie does that too! I wish she would be more graceful and not flop down so hard.

I've had Kitty for 5 years now. In the beginning she would attack and pounce on my dog. He would yelp and run from her. This would happen every day. Finally I scolded Kitty to be nice. I stressed the word nice. Then she did something weird. She jumped on him and started licking his fur. He tries to move but she positions herself so he can't. When she's done grooming him she walks away. Isn't that funny!

Sadie,

I have another funny cat story.

I used to have a male cat Oreo. I like teaching my pets tricks. So before I'd give him a treat, I'd say "Milk". Soon enough whenever he wanted a treat it sounded like he was trying to say "meellk". Now with my cat Kitty, I'm trying to teach her to say "Ma Ma". I don't think she'll ever pronunciate the word completely but when I bring out her treats, I say "Ma Ma" and she responds with "Gna Gna". I'm an animal lover at heart and enjoy their different personalities!

Thought you'd enjoy that story too!

My mother had a poodle who she taught to bark out the words. I want some. I want some more. I want some more please. It was almost scary how real it sounded.
Warm wishes,

Oh wow how excting cat lovers! I have 3 -Weezer is 18- Chi-Chi is about 7 and Stinker is 3 years/Stinker is the worst for throwing himself down in front of us and not moving.I also taught him a trick.When he was just a kitten one day I picked him up and he stretched out his paws in a big wide stretch.Since then all I have to say is "mama wants a 'stretch'and no matter what his position is on me he will immediately stretch,my friends and family get the biggest kick out of that.Chi-chi loves to be patted but theres a certain place on her side that NOBODY can touch otherwise she will hiss and paw or bite you! And Weezer the 'old man'of the house is very vocal and we treat him with kid gloves as he's so old and fragile now-like us lol.We also have 2 small dogs Bijou is a purebred teacup chichuachua and weighs maybe 2 pounds and Winnie is a mix of chichuachua and something else.She too has allergies and we have to bring her to get allergy shots,but she doesn't have fleas so I think its just a skin allergy of some kind.I love my animals so much they bring so much joy and make us laugh and thats what we all need a good laugh every day.hugs-Mary
