Hey Darren, welcome aboard! A month is probably long enough for you to join the ranks of slaves to their cats :)

Hey All: I'm a double newbie. A new atheist and new companion to a beautiful kitty Foxy. That's her picture in my profile. We got Foxy over a month ago at a shelter. It was love at first sight. I am honestly still learning what it means to have a cat, but learning is a lot of fun

So, Squeaky has slowly become attracted to the junkier foods. She used to love Tiki Cat chicken which was actual chicken shreds with supplemental nutrients. That was supplemented with Wellness CORE Indoor Cats dry food and Natural Balance Chicken & Liver Pate.

She gets NO seafood (not good for cats: research it).

Now she turns up her nose at anything other than Friskies Turkey & Giblets Shreds canned food (which is half "gravy") and Friskies Indoor Delights, which used to be just a supplement to the good stuff. How the junk food is all she wants. Should I go cold turkey on her?

What is the attraction of computer keyboards for cats? They like to walk on them and curl up on them for some reason.

A short while ago Squeaky curled up partly on and partly off my laptop while I was using it, and somehow she lost my connection. I discovered I was in airplane mode.

Unable to google, I was casting about for a solution. Looking at my keyboard to see what she might have done, I discovered that the F2 key has a little radio tower icon on it in blue. My Fn key is also blue. Pressing the two together got my connection back.

A while ago, she walked across my keyboard and rotated my display 90 degrees. I had to google the answer to that one with my head sharply cocked to one side. 

One thing I must say is that Squeaky frequently contributes my computer knowledge in ways I didn't anticipate when I got her.

Not looking forward to tomorrow morning. I'm supposedly taking Squeaky in for her annual physical and she is hell to get into a carrier. My plan is to do it in the bathroom. I'll get the carrier in there and even if she gets away, she has nowhere to hide.

I always do a kissy noise at them (which says anything you want in cat language), and crouch down with my hand out while slowly approaching them.  The slow blink is their version of a smile I believe.

If, like me, you're a fan of My Cat from Hell (an American reality TV series for those who don't know), you know that most cat problems are actually people problems, the most common problem being that people don't understand cat behavior and how cats view the world.

Often on the show, you see that people don't know how to approach and handle cats. This video goes into how to approach and pet a cat. One thing she recommends is the slow blink while approaching. Cats do this when approaching each other and it seems to be a kind of signal saying "I'm not threat. I don't want to fight." It's true with many animals and almost all predators that looking them straight in the eye in a prolonged way means something like "I'm looking for a moment when you're unawares so I can attack you." I will often do the slow blink with Squeaky and she almost always returns my blink with her own slow blink. It's virtually a reflex. 

Anyway, I thought you might find the following video interesting.

First fly of the year and Squeaky grabbed it right out of the air, and ate it. Cats are just fucking amazing predators.

And why do they have to attempt to get between us and whatever we are doing?

What is it with the kitty cat compulsion to knock things off tables, counters, etc.?
