General Discussion / Re: Which meow should I adopt?
« on: October 22, 2015, 11:53:05 pm »
Hi, D.....My apt is tiny, and my overweight cat may have trouble climbing a tower.

He's never had people food - he stares at me when I eat, but doesn't beg like lotsa cats and dogs.

My cat uses the side of my (ancient) mattress to scratch on, not his post.  I don't want to sharply say "no" when he does that - he's too sensitive.

He's been napping with me for the first time, but I put him on my bed....he doesn't do it voluntarily.
I don't have a sofa to nap on - no room.

Sure....Grade 3 is too early for drugs.

Re sex, maybe something very general, like "men and women get together to make babies" - can't think of a better example.

I'm ok.....My very shy cat is warming up to me more.

Taking a Toronto Bd of Education "repair your computer" course.  Not a big deal - maybe I have slight undiagnosed Attention Deficit Disorder, as I can't always grasp things.  Not worth seeing a Dr. about.

We have very casual tests in this course - no passing or failing.

I have to take him to the vet to get weighed again.  His dry food is "weight loss," but not his wet food....if there is such a thing.

I'm too much of a pussy  ;D to limit his food like I'm supposed to.  He doesn't get much exercise.  If I had a cat tower.....but my apt is tiny....he would get exercise going up and down it.

I dwell on things, but not cataracts.

I guess wait until they get worse....which could be a long time.


General Discussion / cataracts....

Retina specialist told me yesterday I have cataracts in both eyes.  I was taken aback, but not worried.  "Old age" he said.

I sometimes briefly forget if I'm 68 or 69 in June.  69.

This is a repeat, but I see a retina specialist because I have a tear and a hole on the back of my right retina.  I forgot to ask him yesterday if I still have both.  Not serious, as I only see him twice a year.

I had my retina repaired via laser.  Also not serious - done in Dr's office kind of spur of the moment, hardly hurt, no anaesthetic or anything.
I think a hole and tear are kinda funny.  :P

Hole and tear don't really affect vision - but can cause flashing lights and GIANT 'floaters," but they're transparent.  Haven't had those in 2 years or so.

Saw an inexpensive, small SAD lamp at Shoppers.  I forget the price....not sure how good it is.

I have a more expensive one from Shoppers, but from the stores that are attached to Shoppers that sell crutches and such...  I don't really use it.

Update:  He's warming up even more, but still skittish, if I step near him when he's eating....and similar.

After the vet visit, he kept a low profile for a couple of days.  Must've been stressful for him.

I took him to the vet re vomiting.

Not such a big deal, and it could be from changing his food.

BTW, cats eat cat grass to vomit or expel baddies in their stomach on purpose.
They can't digest cat grass......and they may also use it as a laxative....interesting.

Mine doesn't react to catnip, btw - not all cats do.

Some dry cat foods, and even one brand of snacks you can get can help with hairballs.....which don't look at all like balls, btw.

His extreme shyness does wear me down....I'll have to play games with him more, and try putting him on the cat window perch I installed.

Maybe I mentioned this - when he makes me depressed, I've thought of returning him, but that would be even more depressing.
Sometimes I feel sorry for him.  He gave me a very forlorn "meow" when I got home - bothers me.  Maybe my interpretation of "forlorn" is wrong.

I leave the radio on for him when I'm out, and sometimes the TV - I have some cat DVD's I sometimes play for him....sometimes he's interested, sometimes not.

If he's constantly sick or whatever......that'll make me depressed, and I'll have to return him......which is even more depressing.

Daniel, thanks for the tip.  I'm ordering that book - raising an animal isn't intuitive - you need research/a book.
He's been vomiting lately, but nothing serious.  BTW, there could be many reasons for that, including hairballs in the stomach.  He gets the odd hairball - I couldn't tell what they were at first.

Interesting cats!  A lot of people don't realize bunnies can be housebroken, and stay in the house like other pets.

Another improvement - today, he laid on the bed for the second time particular reason.
He did the same thing last week to get a closer look at the cat DVD I was playing.

take care......Peter

Yes, I want a lap cat......with time....
