Squeaky is regal :)
picked her out at the animal shelter when I went into the cat room and she sat up on her haunches and reached out to me with her paws. "Hold me! Hold me!" So I picked her up and she purred. "I want this one!"
Yeah. She's a tuxedo cat. White bib, white paws, some white on her tummy. Otherwise, jet black. She's a teenager now and so can be a little hard to get along with. She hasn't accepted my authority yet and so she's very disobedient. LOL
Wow, beautiful cat!
Squeaky at 11 months (today):
I wouldn't let Squeaky out to wander the neighborhood. It's just that up on the 6th floor balcony there's nowhere to go (but down, and I'm sure her depth perception is just fine...probably better than mine, because she's a pounce predator).
Oh I know Angela. It's so hard because you want to let your cat out to have outdoor fun but at the same time you don't want anything to happen to him. If something does happen the vet bills can be astronomical if he even manages to get back home.
I'm sorry about your poor kitty. Most likely he will adjust to being an indoor cat eventually. Keep him happy with some cat nip until he does lol. Remember to crush it up with your fingers first - it lets the good stuff out of it. Also it can be a good idea to buy some pet grass at Petco or whatever so he can still eat grass.
Ha! Look who's talking!
I SHOULD not be letting my cat out at all. I tell myself "Oh he'll stay around the house or stay on the porch" and he usually does but not always.
The problem is I had a cat that recently passed. She was 17 1/2 years old and came and went as she pleased (during the day) that whole time and nothing EVER happened to her She was lucky. I keep thinking of that. That's a problem because it makes me think "well it can be the same for my new kitty" but I know there is no guarantee. I have had other cats and bad things did happen to them.
Kitty dilemmas. I have such a hard time trying to convince myself that a cat can be content always indoors once it gets used to it but people say they usually adjust just fine.
@ Angela, so sorry about your cat...I would kill anything that messed with my fat cat...even another cat.
I love that little black kitty....miss him dive bombing me on the couch...sweet memories!!!
Well, I have to trust Squeaky (a she BTW) to know better how to do kitty cat things. She's not exposed to other cats or dogs. She's not killing birds or small animals. She doesn't walk on the ledge a lot. In exchange, she gets fresh air and direct (not through a window) sunlight. If she falls, I'll feel bad, but at least she gets to live a life something like a cat and not just a living plush toy. That's not a dig on you, your cat would be exposed to hostile cats and dogs outdoors. It's just how I feel.
