Nothing to do with being lighter, ours just does it, usually around 2am, up and down the stairs, skittling alone on the hardwood floors, oh we love it….

RIP Tiny. The vet came and put him to sleep on Friday. The drugs that were keeping him healthy were no longer working. I won't go into details*, but it was horrible, as expected.
I miss him so much, and his brother is ???








*Ask how it's done. Though the final stage is the same, how they get there can differ and make it easier for both you and your cat.
How handsome. Sleep well Tiny cry

Yes, it was any hour of the day or night, very funny. He'd run into the living room, look around, and was off again.

Thanks, he was probably the cutest cat in the world.

His brother, Snowy, seems to be lost without him. He's more vocal, demanding and is waking us up in the middle of the night, with some horrible meowing. The only way to quieten him down is to go and get him and put him on the bed, where he'll get between us and fall asleep.

Yep; agree here. Companion pets are far more attuned and sensitive than commonly thought; how could he not miss and remark upon what’s changed?

Fuss and reassurance (by whatever means) I reckon, in liberal quantities… hope he adjusts.

This is so hard to read. Lots of love to you all.

Mine have been in the Catio all day and evening. I’ve been ignored when I said I was going to bed frown

Does anyone else's cat run around the house like a manic after doing a poo, or was it just Tiny?
Yes! Ours do too. Often they come bounding up the stairs like lunatics and my partner and I will look at each other and say "there's a fresh one to scoop!"

Nope, both mine also do that, regular 10 minute mental spell after having a dump.

After a couple of years of a cat free household I've just signed us up as a fosterer for one of the local charities... we didn't really want to make a long term commitment and take on a cat of our own for a number of years right now, so instead I'm going to be devoting hours and hours to socialising some mentally unstable strays. Can't wait angel

Every chance we'll end up keeping the first one we get laugh

I haven't had cats before, so didn't know how funny and loveable they are.

Gretchen, your catio looks great. I can see us doing something similar when we get our own house.

We've had a Milo-shaped hole in our lives for 4 years after cancer took him aged just 3, which was more than enough time to work his way into all our hearts. The children share videos of him in his prime which I still find upsetting.

On a happier note, out of the blue the wife asks if we want to give this little fellow a home. What do you think?

Definitely looks like pure evil. Probably ruin your furniture, eat you out of house and home, wake you up at stupid o’clock, ask you to open doors he has no intention of walking through… when are you picking him up?

At the shelter the assistant said black cats were harder to home because "they don't show up as well in photos". Pepper here would disagree.
