We live in a very rural area but have commuter traffic on our 2 lane road that runs behind our home. It also seems to be a location where many animals have been dumped over the years. My wife found a 5 week old kitten in our yard last Nov. The wife brought her in and put her down, when she spotted me she dashed across the kitchen ran up me and sat on my shoulder, I have been adopted. She is my constant companion when I'm home, eats what I eat, sleeps on or next to me every night, gets quite upset when I leave and meets me at the door when I return and plays fetch better than any dog I've had. Shes a keeper.

I have 2 adult male cats - brothers about 2 1/2 years old. When they were kittens, they got along, but now they have stare-down contests which often lead to fighting. I'd think they were playing, but fur literally flies and one or both end up scratched. I'm afraid they will hurt each other badly. Is there any way to bring peace back to the household. We try to keep them apart space is limited.

    Neutering your cats can help.

I have a 4 year old Silver shaded persian male cat and a 9 mth. old chocolate point Himalayan female, they are both fixed. My Persian is beautiful but very slim and I have tried everything to add weight to his slim build. If there are any suggestions, I am open to any. He is a little over 7 pounds. My Himalayan is big, at least 9 or 10 pounds already, and very active, she is very smart and affectionate, loves to play, but my persian doesn't like her. What am I to do, I want them to be company for each other and I love them both. They are a lot of work as they require daily brushing, which I don't mind doing. Just want my Persian to get a little heavier. Cats in Canada.

    Build a really big cage and line it with plastic.

    Keep the cat in the bathroom with the door closed along with a litter box. Make sure there is no clothing, or carpet for it to urinate on, it should start using the litter box while being confined to the room. *Once the cat gets used to using the litter box you can now put the litter box in an area where you would prefer it to be. Then show the cat where it's new location is by putting the cat in the box. If the cat still urinates in an area other than the box in the new location. Then... Repeat step 1. You just need to work with this confinement method until it clicks with the cat as to where it should be urinating. Lastly, you must know that once a cat urinates on something you almost always need to throw it out or replace it. Otherwise the cat will smell it and repeat the behavior again.

    Residual odors from 'accidents' prompt pets to reuse those areas for that purpose. I use white grain-based vinegar to *NEUTRALIZE* residual odors with. On a tile floor, I would mop it on & dry it off after a few minutes. On carpeting, I would spray it good, and *after* allowing it to set for a few minutes, try to dry it with an absorbant, non-lint cloth. Cleaning does NOT neutralize odors! Residual scent left from urination &/or defecation *MUST* be neutralized away, after cleaning the area as thoroughly as possible, first.

I have 2 right now I took in because if I didn't take them they would have given them to a farm and they were too little to survive winter outside. They're brother and sister born in August of 09 they love to cuddle and sit on your lap. One time I woke up and Miyu was in my arms like a teddy bear. I just weighed my cats and I was shocked Buzz is almost 3 pounds bigger than his sister she's about 6 and he's about 9 pounds, she's so skinny her legs look so twiggy compared to his muscular build. (This is my first female cat and my family seems to think its because females are supposed to be smaller than males. Also they are both fixed and males tend to weigh more if you're not careful after they're fixed.) Miyu thinks she's a princess and when you correct her for doing something she knows not to do she tilts her head and looks at you with this expression that says "Who me? No! This is the face of an angel!" and she will rub against you so you get your guard down and then she goes right back to doing what you stopped her from doing.

I recently rescued a russian blue/domestic mix and she is the sweetest and most well behaved kitty I have ever encountered! She is very affectionate and smart - she can entertain herself very well! She does seem to be wary of strangers but will warm up eventually. Her coat is the most beautiful and soft fur! I highly reccommend this breed! We couldn't afford a purebred but I am so very happy with my halfsie!

    My cat of 18 years died from kidney failure and I was so grief stricken my husband rescued a half Russian blue/ tabby mix from the local animal shelter. He is the most delightful, affectionate and handsome cat I have ever had. He is very popular at the Vet's office(Recently had him neutered). And everyone wants to hold him and kiss him. I too would recommend this breed or half breed to any cat lover. I love this cat so much. I am thankful to God for this cat's companionship and I pray he will live to be atleast 30 years old.

    What kind of mix are they. Domestic what_ Mine are two gorgeous girls that came out with a reverse Tabby Coat Spots and white. They are all Russian Blue in behaviour, verbalizing and making a funny sound that I have never herd before but that Russian Blue make.
