Things seen round the pod. Diaspora that is.

When my mom got my cat neutered, he wouldnt have anything to do with her for a few weeks. But was fine after that.

Hi Grinning Cat, thanks for the warning! Dido & Luna both would like to have interactive TV, but I don't. So they sit on top and try to catch the ball before the players do and they like animal programs so we watch those together.

Chris - just don't let your cat watch too much TV. :)

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 23, 2012 at 6:55am

At the shelter, they said I take them to the vet myself.  It's not already done.

Comment by Plinius on August 23, 2012 at 6:48am

The shelter has probably already taken care of it. I brought my cats to the vet myself, and they never held it against me, even if they hated the treatment.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 23, 2012 at 6:44am

Steph, you said you think a female cat is no more trouble than a male.  I imagine you're right.  I was surprised when the girl at the center said that, but now I'm wondering if there are basic differences once a cat is spayed or neutered.  I hate saying those words.  It sounds like such an unpleasant procedure!

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 23, 2012 at 6:34am

Another question:  I wonder if it might be a good idea to have someone else take my cat to the vet to get spayed of neutered, so the cat doesn't associate that with me.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 23, 2012 at 6:16am

Steph, Patricia, Kosak, Chris, thanks for your replies.

A further question:  All cats adopted from the shelter here has to be spayed or neutered.  I imagine that causes them pain for a while.  What do I need to do to help them through that?

Comment by Plinius on August 23, 2012 at 12:55am

Hi Idaho Spud! A cat is wonderful for you, he/she will lower your bloodpressure and calm you down when you need it. My husband suffers from anxiety disorder: with some medicine and the work our cats did over the years he has an almost normal life. Many cats catch spiders - my house is almost insect- and spiderfree. But if you expect to continue your life without thinking how the cat feels, you'll get a disappointment. A cat will behave like he's your equal. Every cat has got her/his own hangup and it could be anything: to lie on the bed or to throw knickknacks from the window sill or to keep every door in the house open or to steal vegetables.. you'll laugh and accept it in the end and worry less than ever. I've seen lots of different behaviour in the more than ten cats that shared with us, but it's always kind and friendly. Don't worry about germs, a good friendship strengthens your resistance against germs. A cat is no dirtier than a potato.
