Max has arrived. He is in the storeroom at the moment, which we have kittenproofed (cables covered up and so on). Other cats are in the bedroom at the moment but so far no major upsets. max has eaten some Almo chicken fillet with great enthusiasm, used the litterkwitter tray  and is now sleeping.

He is such a sweet kitten, no getting carried away when playing, purrs all the time, really loud, enjoys belly rubs.

Aaaw, congratulations alek0!  He is really cute, that little face is adorable.  I hope the introductions go well and all the girls want to do with him is play and do his hair.   :-*  Keep us posted on how it goes!

Lookit those ears! What a cute little guy! I'm so glad he's settling in so well. I wonder if his eyes will stay that color? I've seen some grey cats with blue eyes.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on April 12, 2011, 08:26:37 AM
Well, settling in well went only until the girls realized that there is an "intruder" there and it isn't just some random noise from outside. Stefie seems clam, but the girls are not too happy. I hope it will pass, there was some hissing and their appetite is not that great, Mitzie could be convinced to eat her dinner eventually, but Sophie only ate snacks. Argh. I am hoping for a better day tomorrow. Max is quite an explorer and since he is so tiny what we taught was safely blocked access isn't really so. Bf will sleep with Max on the floor tonight, I an staying with other cats.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: bug on April 12, 2011, 08:36:10 AM
Typical girls. Always get their noses out of joint. Once they realize it's a tiny little boy, they'll get over themselves and start having fun.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: Spartycats on April 12, 2011, 10:15:15 AM
I'm sure it will be fine.  Russian Blues are friendly toward their people and other cats (they are shy of strangers).  They are generally calm and happy cats, so I'm sure your gang will adjust just fine.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: Meowli on April 12, 2011, 12:05:15 PM
What a cute kitten! The others will grow to love him soon I'm sure! My Amir hissed for days when the girls came, he adjusted well within a couple of weeks.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: lesliek on April 12, 2011, 05:13:55 PM
I'm sure they will take to him in a few days ! Good work getting BF to take the sleeping on the floor  ;). Although that means he gets the kitten kisses.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on April 12, 2011, 08:45:28 PM
Girls still don't eat as much as normal, but they are eating. Mitzie is refusing to share her space with Sophie, I guess she decided it is all bfs and Sophie's fault, since they are not her favorite persons anyway She is in a better mood overall, and was purring happily in bed last night.

I need advice on dry food though, Max is totally ignoring it. He is quite tiny though, should I offer Orijen, that is the tiniest kibble I have on hand? Also, although yesterday he went normally to the box, this morning he did No.1 in his bed, and No. 2 in the sink. Both things happened while I was briefly at work just for lectures, so I guess he needs to be watched more closely and put in the box from time to time.

He is an adorable kitten! I'm sure he'll be the most handsome cat around as soon as he grows into his giant noggin!  ;D For his dry food, I don't think kibble size really makes too much difference so you could try whatever you have in the house and see if he's interested. Smoggy wanted to eat Stormy's high fiber kibble rather than his kitten food. I decided it was easier to let him have a little of Stormy's food than trying to force him to eat the kitten food. For Max's bathroom problem maybe you could try some of that cat attract litter additive to encourage him to use his box. If he keeps peeing outside the box, well you know that's a trip to the vet!

He has really unusual eye color. I wonder if they'll stay that way.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: merrihart on April 13, 2011, 03:00:38 AM
He might be testing you, too.  'Bisi took to Peeing on the bed, and then on my backpack.  I had to give her "timeouts" for her to get the message.

He's simply got an adorable face.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: lesliek on April 13, 2011, 04:35:57 AM
It could just be the difference in the box he is used to, or the lack of other smells in it. He's used to smelling his littermates too. I would try adding the cat attract herbs & putting him in it every couple of hours & see if that helps. It could also be marking his new territory.  :D about Mitzi !


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: catbird on April 13, 2011, 05:14:21 AM
What cute pictures!  I think he'd be fine with the Orijen.  And I third the suggestion about the Cat Attract herbs.  LOL about Mitzi!  Typical tortitude!  Blame it all on the people you don't like anyway!


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on April 13, 2011, 05:20:16 AM
I've been putting him into the box few times in the afternoon and he just went there with no problem. Sophie has been watching him from a distance and hissing when they get too close. She has eaten some more food today, still refusing her usual stuff but I was able to tempt her with some Weruva.

Max is also not interested in dry food at all, right now we are trying blending it and mixing with his wet food, he ate some of that. Bf is grumbling about all the open cans and wasted food but I think it is important to keep offering her something. Mitzie and Stefie are eating OK if they are fed in their bay window, Mitzie is even purring in her basket, everything is fine until she ventures into living room and sees Max. I hope things will get better. I know some hissing is normal, I just wish introductions are easier. Breaks my heart when they are not happy about something, even if it is something which is in their own good in the long run. She needs younger, more active company, and I so hope they will get along eventually.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: bug on April 13, 2011, 06:07:15 AM
I'm wondering why you want to give Max kibble at all. I would be so happy if I had a cat that wouldn't eat it. He'd be just fine on an all wet food diet. Could this be your foray into home cooking cat food? Trade the chocolate for liver and tuna and make some kitty cakes?

It usually takes a few weeks for things to settle down between old and new kitties. You might want to bring Max out in a kennel into the main area so they can have a look at him and assert their dominance over the little guy. They often get it out of their systems and then that's it.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on April 13, 2011, 06:19:24 AM
Most of the wet I feed is complementary food (Almo, Applaws). I also feed Weruva and Tiki but not as often since it results in softer poo.  I planned to start Max on mixture of kibble and Ziwipeak and then transfer him entirely to Ziwipeak but he is not interested in either. Ziwipeak+Almo&Applaws seems to work perfectly fine for my cats (provided that Ziwipeak is hand fed so they don't scarf it down too quick and throw up later), so I intend to feed Max the same eventually. He is used to some Australian brand kitten kibble which I can't get here, he is not interested in freeze-dried treats either, seems not to realize that is edible.

Thanks for the suggestion about bringing him out in the kennel, I might try that. As it is, Max is in the storeroom, during the day doors are open, he doesn't venture out much, other cats occasionally go over to the living room and hiss at him when he gets too close, otherwise they just watch him playing with his toys. In the evening I close the door, one of us stays in with Max and the other is out with other cats giving them extra attention (they also get extra attention throughout the day).


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on April 13, 2011, 06:35:32 AM
I think we are making progress. I gave Stefie some cat grass, and he was eating while Max came really close and was sniffing him, just a few occasional hisses from Stefie, but otherwise he didn't mind too much. He seems least upset. I've just closed the door for the night, and Sophie went there to hiss at the door. Hopefully she will get it out of her system soon. He is so friendly and affectionate, no teeth and no claws when he plays with you, I wish she will give him a chance...


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: bug on April 13, 2011, 06:38:26 AM
They eventually do get used to each other. They may not LIKE each other, but they will subsist peacefully after some time. It's just that he's a different smell in the house. Maybe rub him down with some fresh catnip and see what the others do.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: catwoods on April 13, 2011, 01:32:37 PM
Max is exceedingly cute! This is another thing that will just take time, the fireworks will stop eventually and everyone will accept the new little guy.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: lesliek on April 13, 2011, 04:40:37 PM
Maybe switch beds around so Max gets to smell them & they smell him ?


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: JJ on April 13, 2011, 10:53:51 PM
alek my dog does not like freeze dried anything either and have tried a few different brands and no go, not even soaked in warm water for a few moments to bring out more aroma.

What will you do if Max does not accept the Ziwipeak as you would like him to - try and find something else similar? We all know that cats (have a few examples on here) who will just not eat this or that and want their usual and that is that according to them, lol.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on April 14, 2011, 02:19:16 AM
He is eating Ziwipeak blended and mixed in with his wet food, he is also eating freeze dried hearts, and freeze dried prawns. I guess it is partly the issue of him being very tiny (and kibbles I tried are probably not as small as what he is used to, and Ziwipeak pieces are not small either) and also possibly not realizing this is food.

We are making progress, Stefie and Sophie and Max have been sharing living room space with hisses only when Max comes too close, and this afternoon him and Stefie touched noses with no hissing.

Mitzie's and Stefie's aproach to the problem (if we ignore him, maybe he'll go away):

Sophie doesn't look too happy, but she hisses now only when Max is really close.

Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: catbird on April 14, 2011, 05:08:26 AM
I'd say that Stefie touching noses with Max already is very good progress! as is the fact that they seem to be tolerating him in the room.  Max is so cute standing on that stool, and Sofie's expression of disdain brings me many smiles! :D


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: lesliek on April 14, 2011, 05:12:24 AM
Good thing looks can't kill ! Sophie is not pleased.  It sounds like they are getting the idea that Max is staying & getting used to him though.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on April 14, 2011, 05:25:11 AM
Seems to be going much better than with introducing Sophie, for that it took weeks to get to the level "tolerate in the same room". As it is, I wish girls would it better, hopefully things will gcontinue to slowly improve. This evening Sophie was standing close to Max and didn't hiss, once. She did hiss when he approached her next time.

During the day, we keep all doors open so they can all venture out into the living room if they feel like it. Older cats have been mostly in the bedroom, occasionally coming out, and Max is mostly in the storeroom, occasionally coming out. Periods of coming out have been increasing steadily for both sides and both sides have their safe area. They've been getting extra attention and treats and lots of playtime. At night one of us (tonight is my turn, ouch) sleeps on storeroom floor with Max. Opinions about this arrangement and suggestions for improvements are welcome.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: catbird on April 14, 2011, 05:29:08 AM
My experience has been that female cats are far more likely to accept a new male cat or kitten than they are another female, so I'm not surprised that it's going better than when Sophie came!  I think you are doing very well in your strategy with the "safe areas", extra playtime, and extra attention.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell

Umm . . .about the hard (ouch) floor for sleeping - maybe an inflatable air mattress would help both you and bf get a better nights rest. :D

Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on April 14, 2011, 05:17:18 PM
This morning some sniffing with Sophie and Stefie, and no hissing. He is trying to play with Sophie but she is not brave enough yet, and just moves away, no hissing. Mitzie still hisses a lot and makes weird meows. I expected she will be most difficult. She also threw up yesterday which worries me a bit, so I am keeping an eye on her and giving her extra attention.

alek by any chance do you have a really big carrier or one of those net playpen things (like one merrihart has or one like August has) to maybe put Max in that and one of you sleeps on the couch with him in there and the other cats can venture out if they like and see, smell, sniff, etc. He would be safe in something like that and also be able to smell and see them. Might speed up the 'get to know you' phase.

I don't have one of those. We seem to be making good progress though. Sophie and Max were laying together with Kragonfly I don;t now where did my new photos disappear.

Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on April 15, 2011, 01:45:29 AM
Mitzie is still hissing at him, but that is to be expected. Stefie prefers to spend most of the time in the bedroom, but when he is in living room with Max no problem. Also, no problem with going to the toilet while Max is making awful noise playing in the tunnel, so that's good. Everyone is eating better, too.

New pics, Sophie and Max, Sophie was sleeping on a chair, Max jumped over, settled next to her and started licking her tail, she tolerated it for a bit and then she moved off. But I would say this is quite good progress.

Oh my, talk about major sighs coming out of me as I look at these pics.  He is just so darn cute and the fact that things are going so well in the others accepting him, its just an aaawww moment....sigh... :-*  He is so precious. 


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on April 15, 2011, 09:06:28 AM
Sophie and Max played together tongiht, chasing each other from one scratcher to another :)

Stefie is also fine with him, even tolerating Max having a look what is happening when he went to the toilet (see attached photo  ;D ). No hisses also. Mitzie is the only one which still hisses.

Oh yes, and Max thinks all those toys which were lying around neglected are marvelous. I wonder how am I going to sleep tonight with all the noise :)

Understatement!  OMG, Alek, that is sooo funny :D  I'm really surprised that Stefie didn't react.  Great pictures and the "getting to know you" period sounds like it's going really well.  Good job!

Hey, maybe you won't have to train Max with the Litter Qwitter at all!  Maybe he will just learn from watching the "big guys."  Too funny! ;D


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on April 15, 2011, 03:10:12 PM
It will be interesting how training will go, he is a smart boy and he figured out cat door on the bathroom door all by himself :) Sophie went in and then he went in right away after her, took him 1-2 sec to figure it out :)

Alek,
Looks like great progress!  Kitties in Japan and Hong Kong must be pretty laid back!   :D  Those here in the U.S. don't seem to be as kind to newcomers!   ;)  The toilet picture is too funny!  Hope that Max doesn't take a swat at someone's backside or tail and fall in!   :o

Alek now will be needing a 'Max' fix (pics) at least a few times a week. HE IS JUST BEAUTIFUL. As highly allergic now to cats (when I was a young kid not one allergy to cats or kittens) as I am, I could not resist picking Max up and just carrying him around, talking to him, petting him, listening in awe as he purrs away. Just luv this lil boy of yours!

I am astonished at your progress in integrating Max!  It's fantastic that they let him get so close already.  And I love his little round kitten belly in that upside-down photo.  Ah, kittens.

We have a problem though, Mitzie has been throwing up almost daily, about once a day, but she has been eating. Day before yesterday she threw up a hairball so we thought it is just hairball (sometimes there is a day or two of throwing up liquid once or twice until hairball comes out). However, she threw up last night, brown liquid with a tiny bit of red blood in it. She has eaten her breakfast though, I am feeding her lowest fat food I have at home. I want to bring her in to the vet today, bf would prefer to observe her. Argh. I am very stressed out about this. Today is Sunday so it wouldn't be our usual vet seeing her.

Poor Mitzie :(  Perhaps it would be better to wait till Monday to see your vet?  She's eating and drinking, and her bathroom habits havent changed?  But for your own nerves, you should do as you think best.  We don't want you coming down with ulcers or anything.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on April 16, 2011, 02:37:25 PM
She has a history of gastritis/ulcer. Her eating is OK now, drinking, bathroom normal as well. When we are alone snuggled up with no noise from Max she is also happily purring.

As for me coming down with gastritis/ulcer, I wouldn't be surprised, I am quite worried about her. I guess we all have our favorites, and Her Grumpiness is my baby.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: bug on April 16, 2011, 06:09:30 PM
Those pictures are so great. He just wants to be with the others. I can see how a change can be upsetting, though. I hope it's nothing and Mitzie gets back to normal.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell

Ohhhh!  Maxwell!  He's absolutely adorable!

And it looks like the others are doing very well with him, too!  That's wonderful!


When my neighbor got a new kitten, her cat seemed all right with everything, but then suddenly developed a UTI.  Maybe Mitzie is adjusting and though she's enjoying Maxwell's company, she just needs a bit of time to really calm,... and in the meanwhile is showing it through some vomiting?  I'm glad to hear that she is doing better by your latest post.

As for Tinies and poops, as Merrihart mentioned, they went at least a couple times a day I think.

Post by: alek0 on April 17, 2011, 01:55:11 PM
MItzie seems calmer, no barfing yesterday and she was sleeping at her usual place on me last night instead of in the bay window. She even asked for her tail to be held, as usual (she doesn't like to bend over to clean her tail, lol):
(http://www.coolinarika.com/repository/images/_variations/b/5/b5af25057f732d38846313b095c26c00_view_l.jpg)

Stefie is OK with Max, and Sophie seems to be getting along with him quite well, they have been chasing each other and playing together, and she is making happy noises while running around, just like when we play together (when Stefie wasn't interested to chase her, I had to do it). They spend most of the time in the same room, even when Sophie is not playing she seems entertained to watch him play :) Max and Sophie (that was a big yawn):
(http://www.coolinarika.com/repository/images/_variations/b/a/ba5b8d3887f29d27ffd3dba4ad56138c_view_l.jpg)

I took out that toy with a string (fling ama string or whatever that thing is called) and all three of them played happily with it (Mitzie wasn't interested in that though).

Maxwell is too cute and all your furkids are. The blood in the throw up would e a concern to me...not a panic I may have missed it but a call into the vet to be safer would be a good idea.....sorry I missed this I am not in the site much and then get in fast and out....some days I can linger...tonight is one..so the kitten ...well I am envious and you say he is mellow...mine is not lol ...shes almost 1 and hubby just got the ability to pet her tummy without bites or scratches  :D

Post by: alek0 on April 19, 2011, 08:34:13 AM
Mitzie is better, more purring today even when Max is on the bed with her, and no throwing up. Sophie is occasionally a bit wary and moves away after a while if he is too close, but she licked him today, and he keeps walking around her and rubbing himself against her.

More pics:

Btw, any ideas what to do about gas problem? Vet said I feed him too much, but I feed him a little whenever he asks for food (I think growing kittens should eat), his No. 2s are solid and nicely formed but he has some gas (unbelievable how much stink can a little kitten produce). Shall I give him some probiotics or yogurt with live culture, would that help?


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: merrihart on April 19, 2011, 08:42:29 AM
I gave 'bisi pumpkin, and never ventured into the probiotics.  Yogurt never even occured to me, since it is a milk product.  The pumpkin helped, but the moment I forget to give her some the stinkies come back.   :-X

Ah, a kitten that "can clear a room full of people in 10 seconds"  ;D ....sounds like some cats I have known over the years!   I think trying probiotics and pumpkin both may be safe and effective.

Little Max is fitting right in with your cat family! 

My daughter had problems with Auri being gassy too (although at 1 1/2 she is quite a bit older than Max), but it seems to be subsiding without any treatment.  Beef seems to give Auri clear-the-room type gas, though, so she is avoiding beef foods.  Linley gets gas whenever he eats a food that is mostly chicken.  Could it be a food ingredient?


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: bug on April 19, 2011, 12:33:28 PM
I just loooove the pictures. So cute. Mr. T has some gas, too, so I figure it's just an adjustment to a new diet.

Can I ask -- are those kitty shelves something you had made?  And what about the cushions on the shelves?


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on April 22, 2011, 12:39:50 AM
Yes, it was all custom made according to my drawings, including the cushions and cushion covers. The wooden part was made to fit commercial cardboard inserts from a cardboard scratcher, and all the kitties love the inclined ones, Max and Sophie like to slide down on it in addition to regular scratching :)

Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: Mandycat on April 23, 2011, 10:35:56 PM
alek,
Do you just use the intermediate ring all the time for all the cats while you are training Max?  Is that a hole in the middle?  Do Max's legs ever slip into that hole (if that is a hole)?  He looks very interested in what is going on back there!   :D 


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on April 23, 2011, 10:54:47 PM
Mitzie uses litter kwitter with Max (but she sits on the seat as normal),the other two use the other toilet without litter kwitter. And yes, that is a hole in the middle, he had a bit of trouble but he learnt where to place his feet. basically with litter kwitter you start with a small hole and then bigger and bigger and bigger until they learn to keep all feet on the seat.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: Mandycat on April 23, 2011, 11:03:22 PM
Thanks for the explanation, Alek.  I hope Max doesn't decide to try the other toilet too soon!   :D

Max has recently become quite fearless when it comes to jumping up and down wall platforms and scratcher. Though when it comes to bed, he still runs up the stairs, over the scratchpad and  then onto the bed. Other three have finally started using stairs too, lol. Before Max came, they were mostly ignoring the stairs and jumping up onto the bed directly.

Alek0, can we get a close-up of little Max, I want to see closer how much this little guy has grown!  How old is he now? Oh! and I hope the poo problems have cleared up?


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on May 16, 2011, 03:49:49 AM
Sure, I'll try to get some close-ups. On vet visit today we got some probiotics for him, and he'll be on a bland diet for a week. We'll see how that goes. He hasn't thrown up again, and hasn't gone to the toilet yet, but vet said that the content is squishy so he'll likely be soft again (but hopefully not totally liquid).

Also, I am considering of letting the back up vet do the neuter since her clinic is much closer, and she is very competent (in some ways better than my regular vet). She even said that we can visit the surgery room see how the room looks like while she explains procedure again, and she described the procedure in detail, explained the anesthetic options, and we can just wait at the clinic while it is being done and it is even possible to watch it. Not sure whether I would want to, but it is quite reassuring that such option exists since I suppose it must be simple and straightforward. What do you guys think? I will probably have nightmares for weeks if I decide to stay and watch, but it would be nice to be there with our little boy whole time. I guess I could just be there and close my eyes until they wake him up.  He is now 5 month old and we plan to do it sometimes next month.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: lesliek on May 16, 2011, 05:00:06 AM
I think theres a link posted to videos of spays & neuters on here somewhere. Maybe see if you do ok watching that then decide ? Glad the vet feels Max just has that pesky virus.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on May 16, 2011, 08:32:48 AM
She thinks virus might have weakened his immune system and there could be some opportunistic bugs making it worse, we'll try with probiotics (that kaolin, pectin &probiotics thing) and bland diet (chicken and rice basically, just applaws with more rice added) and if it doesn't get better we need to bring in a sample. He went twice today, first time it was soft, second time liquid. He is still active, has a good appetite. Improvement from yesterday, we'll see how it goes.

That's sweet that your BF is showing such a protective feeling as to wanting to be there for Max during his neuter.

I don't suppose there would be any issue of Max's identifying discomfort with your being present for that kind of thing?  I've wondered that before.  I think if I had the welcome option though, I'd like to be there, too.

Great picture of Max. He looks like such a happy cat. I hope his poop problems clear up soon. Both Stormy and Smoggy had loose poops when they were kittens. My new kitty is also having soft poop so I wonder if it's them getting used to commercial cat food. Stormy and Smoggy have normal poop now that they're adults. Even changing their food to wet didn't cause any problems.

Btw, we scheduled neuter for June 8th, any tips and suggestions are welcome. When one cat is not supposed to eat the day before, what do you do with the others? Feed them in the other room, or not feed anyone?


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: catbird on May 24, 2011, 07:01:23 PM
Little Max, you are so sweet and your expressions are priceless!

I usually isolate the cat who can't eat during the feeding time for the others.  Usually the fasting time is 12 hours with my vet, so it works out pretty well.  I just skip breakfast for the fasting cat, and the night before I take up all the water bowls and don't put them back until the "patient" has gone to the vet.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on May 24, 2011, 07:12:28 PM
So no water also? They just told me no food.

We will also be doing a general health check during home visit the day before. I feel a bit bad that I will bring him in to a back-up vet for the procedure, but my regular vet which does home visits does surgery in an animal hospital which is quite far, and we would have to bring him in the morning and then collect him in the evening, this way we can just bring him in 15 min before the procedure, wait there (bf may go in to be with him) and bring him back home right away. The vet discussed anesthesia and pain killers in detail with us, and I am comfortable with her. I will take a day off for that day anyway so we'll both stay home and watch him carefully after the procedure.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: catbird on May 24, 2011, 07:15:56 PM
My vet usually says no water after midnight when surgery is scheduled for the following morning, and no food for twelve hours previous.  But your vet must have a different protocol.

If you are bringing him home right afterwards, be prepared to confine him in a kennel or carrier for some time.  They are very groggy for hours after the anesthesia, and a kitten especially, who is used to being very active, could fall and get hurt trying to navigate.  I'm actually quite surprised that they let you bring him home that soon.  Most vets I've encountered want to monitor them for awhile.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: August on May 24, 2011, 09:19:19 PM
I've fed everyone their dinner, then put away all foods and go to bed, even if it's really early.   ::)

I'm usually told no food the night before, and no water from a certain time in the morning.



Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: Fizzy1 on May 24, 2011, 09:38:16 PM
My vet always says no food after a certain time, but water is okay :-\  That's just been for dentals, maybe it would be different for actual surgery.  Anyway, it wouldn't hurt to verify with the vet.

I think it would be easier just to pick everyone's bowls up at the same time, that way he can't smell the food that he can't eat. 


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: lesliek on May 25, 2011, 04:49:49 AM
Mine always say no food or water for 12 hours too. I usually isolate the patient during dinner & then pick up all bowls too. If any of the others are looking for their water I put it down for a drink & then pick it up again. When Oreo & Punkin were done Oreo was about 6 1/2 mos & came home quickly. Punkin was 10-11 & had to stay until about 7 pm because his surgery was a little more difficult. Oreo did need to be in 1 of the dogs crates for a night to keep him from climbing. Punkin was still woozy & would just lay on a dog bed.

Thanks for the info. I remember when Stefie was done he was a bit woozy for a few hours after I picked him up, but after that he was fine. That time I was using another vet, so I dropped them off in the morning, and then picked them up in the evening. With Max we'll of course stay for the observation for a few hours, but it is nice I think that we can be there with him (even though I am sure I'll find it distressing to see him like that).

Ooo, a pidgeon comes to visit!  Definitely exciting!

I love the look on Stefie's face in that potty picture.  ;D  Stefie is a very kind gentlemen to put up with it and not give Max a swat!

Thx for the new pics. Max is a living doll. How can you resist not squeezing him every chance you get?

The pic of Mitzie with one eye slightly open - makes one go awwwwwww, so cute.

They are very alert with that pigeon at the window - glad you were ready with the camera to capture them.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on June 02, 2011, 07:42:40 AM
Well, JJ, if you squeeze him, he farts, so I can resist :) He still has some gas, although No. 2s are fine, probably from the quantity of the food he is consuming, but I really don;t like the idea of restricting food intake to a growing kitten, so I'll put up with the smelly side effects. In any case, those are becoming less frequent as he grows.

Here is one more of Max:

You can see that Max is growing nicely, he'll be 6 months old in a few days, so I guess he is going to be a big kitty (Mitzie is ~7kg, none of my cats is small). On the last pic they are all enjoying their weekly sashimi. I know raw fish is not good to feed on regular basis because of thiaminase, but they get raw fish, about 2-3 cut sashimi pieces once a week only and they love it.

Treat ball wars - Stefie is the only one pushing it around, girls follow him and eat the treats, and Max is usually just watching from the side.
And when Stefie actually eats a treat, then girls get angry and bite him, poor guy.

Max is smart. He says, look at Stephie. What a sucker. He gets the food out and then gets bit for his efforts. I guess I'll just watch the action unfold.

Btw, his teeth are growing and he is now biting everything. The book I've been reading now has perforated front and back cover (multiple perforations, abstract art, lol), he keeps biting paper plates, any kind of paper in general. His upper canines are now almost fully grown, but old ones haven't come out yet, see attached pic. Is that normal? And any advice on biting things? Should I get him some rubber toys for small dogs? Any other ideas?


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: merrihart on June 15, 2011, 05:27:03 PM
I didn't know what to do when 'Bisi started teething.  If he'll use the soft rubber toys, it's better than your hand.   ;)  I let bisi tear cardbaord up.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: lesliek on June 15, 2011, 05:38:21 PM
I used cardboard too & sometimes gave them a small dog sized nylabone [only supervised to make they didn't eat it !]. It's been 10 years since I had a kitten, I don't remember if the teeth need to be pulled at a certain point if they aren't coming out. Hopefully someone with more recent experience will know.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on June 15, 2011, 06:37:29 PM
He is a good boy, doesn't use my hand, unless I have a toy puppet on it or a glove, then he knows it is OK to bite. But he is destroying my books, argh! He is also destroying baskets, cardboard playtower, etc. We recently had a scare with the dragonfly toy, I took it out of the drawer and didn't inspect it since they were jumping on me, started playing with them, Max caught it and started biting on it, I took it away from him and noticed there was no body! So I thought he swallowed it, started to panic, but fortunately remembered to check the toy drawer before deciding whether to bring him in, and there was the body in the drawer. It apparently fell off in previous play session, and bf forgot to mention it. Grrrr.

Post by: Mandycat on June 15, 2011, 06:45:37 PM
When Mandy was having dental problems last year, I did quite a bit of reading about cats' teeth. As I recall, when baby canines don't come out and the permanent ones grow in, they do sometimes have to be removed. I'd check with your vet or call a vet dentist and ask about it.  He sure is a cutie pie!   :)


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: August on June 15, 2011, 07:15:30 PM
I'm glad to hear that the dragonfly body was in the drawer!   :P

Destroying books and the towers.... LOL.  Oh man.  Watch out for your wallpaper if it's anything like my apartment!   ::)

I guess I might leave out cardboard boxes around so he can tear on those and they can be easily thrown away.  I've not had any trouble with anybody swallowing cardboard -- they just like to tear and rip it up.


When I took Wednesday in to get the ribbon he ate taken out of his stomach  :-\  , the doctor found that his baby teeth hadn't fallen out and were in a row behind his adult teeth, so he removed them (after asking permission) at the same time (not a problem to have them in a row for a short while, but as you can imagine, it's not good to have for a long time what with the plaque buildup).  The doctor told me that this row of teeth thing is common in dogs but not so much in cats.


As always, super cute photos of the bunch!

I encouraged Stormy chew on cardboard when she was teething. She went through a lot of Amazon boxes but it did keep her from chewing on more valuable items (for the most part anyway) I hope Max's teething phase is a short as possible! Stormy never did grow out of hers, dang it!

Post by: alek0 on June 16, 2011, 07:35:37 PM
Bug, I've designed it myself and I have to say I like the result, I think it is much nicer than last time (I designed my old place by myself also, it was simpler design and that one was white, blue and beech wood combination).

This is the kitchen:
(http://www.coolinarika.com/repository/images/_variations/f/d/fdfc018ff831e2e890e38b3509879305_view_l.jpg)

If anyone is interested in those nice colorful tiles, you can get them in a US shop called Color Bakery, they have amazing designs and do printing of the custom images as well on tiles and other things, I got a wallet with Sophie's pic for bf last year when ordering all that stuff for the flat :)

NedF, I am hoping for a short teething stage too. Got him one of those Orka wiggly worms, hopefully he'll like that and keep chewing on it, he needs to loosen those baby canines so that they would hopefully fall out on their own. I just checked this morning, they are still there  :(

Alek, that's gorgeous! I love the u-shaped island and your choice in cupboards and hardware (same handles I have). The glass makes it look bright and open. I'll have to check out that tile place you're talking about. Sounds cool. You must have to clean a lot. Keeping up with white when you have cats is really a challenge.

alek do not know at what age a cats baby teeth should all have come out. My dog, Foxy Lady, after I adopted her took her to my regular vet and they told me she had one baby tooth that had not come out and the adult tooth had grown in and that the baby tooth would crowd the adult one and to have it removed when she was spayed at the shelter I adopted her from. She was 1 1/2 yrs. old  when the remaining baby tooth was removed as that is age I adopted her at.

Home made chicken meatballs (ground chicken with cooked risotto rice, rolled into ground freeze-dried turkey&tuna mixture and then baked). First thing that I've made for them that they all like, Max especially, he is even willing to eat them cold directly from the fridge when he is too impatient and can wait for me to warm them up for him.

Btw, do your cats have favorite toy colors? Sophie loves blue, but Max's favorite is purple, if you give him several toy mice which are
identical except for the color, he always goes for purple. He loves his purple toy mouse, I wish I could find him some of those fluffy things in purple color.

I always get such enjoyment out of seeing your photos!  So does Sophie give Max a slap when he messes with her tail?  In that pic, she acts like she could care less...but maybe there is more to the story than what we see.   :D

Sophers always went for the black mousies...that is until I cut the tails off and then she wont play with them anymore.  ::)

Too funny, merrihart! ;D Max no doubt learned to style from watching the master, Stefie. You can almost see him thinking, Now what can we do with this fluffy tail?

We are back, it went OK, bf was there with him, and I came in as soon as he woke up and we waited together with him for the observation period. He is running around and playing, though he keeps trying top lick the area, then we distract him with toys.

Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on August 10, 2011, 04:06:14 AM
He is already back to normal. No more interest in licking the area, so I guess we don't need the painkiller that vet gave us. I am now baking a fresh batch of meatballs (chicken breast, chicken thighs, tuna steak rolled into a mixture of freeze-dried chicken powder+tuna flakes) so I guess he'll enjoy his treats :)

Two more pics of Max, Max watching Star Trek and Max bothering me during exercise :) He loves stability ball, and he especially loves to interfere whenever something tough is going on (pushups, one-legged squats etc.)

Glad to hear he has bounced back quickly!  And I love the look on his face where he is "helping" you exercise!

Ahhhh, a balance ball.  I used to have one of those before it was punctured.   ::)


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on August 11, 2011, 02:59:56 PM
Max is fully recovered :) I am quite happy with how neuter went, although it was more stressful for us to be there, it was less stressful for him. He was nicely calm when he woke up which I think was
a lot due to the fact that we were there with him to talk to him, pet him, support him when he was still too weak and uncoordinated from anesthetic. It was hard seeing him like that, but if it made it easier for him I'd definitely do it again.

I see what you mean by your finding some cute bedding!  I'm usually not for colorful bedding, but those ones look fantastic!  They look really pretty in your place, and the cats look so vibrant.

I think I might have that green feather toy I've seen twice now in your photos.  Does it have a head that squeaks?  Mine used to have a head but it's a favorite here.

LMAO at that last photo of the stretch.  Great timing!

If the toy is fluffy or has feathers, it will certainly get groomed :) I got the bug beds and the deep round bed from a british website www.viovet.co.uk , they have international shipping which is quite inexpensive (they limit the weight of the parcel, but I could get two beds shipped over for 10 GBP in total).

Alek0, where did you get that bed that Mitzie is in, the round one with the high sides, its a cream color with a brown paw print pattern on it?  Ive been looking for something like that for Sophs but cant find anything that looks that nice!

Thanks so much for sharing all these pics, I just love being able to see them all!  I am so sorry to hear your BF will be gone for 2 months!  Thats a long time but thankfully with todays technology of internet and cameras, etc it helps to make it easier....not that Im good at any of it, lol


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on August 22, 2011, 12:16:38 AM
Sandi K, same as the bug beds, I also got it at www.viovet.co.uk. Their shipping is quite cheap (10 GPB to HK for a parcel containing two cat beds).

More pics of Stefie at work:

(http://www.coolinarika.com/repository/images/_variations/e/6/e68edc8ac71f0eb4accb11428eccc5bb_view_l.jpg)

It is funny that Mitzie is also grooming Max, but not grooming Sophie. On the other hand, few days ago when Max was pestering Sophie and she didn't want to play Mitzie defended her and just went up to Max and slapped him. Lol. She is the boss.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: Sandi K on August 22, 2011, 09:30:30 AM
Didnt Mitzie groom Sophie before? So maybe she thinks Max's hair is in more need of a little make-over.  lol Poor Sophie.

Hey, thanks for that link, I cant tell for sure but it looks like they might ship to Alaska....I will double-check before I get my hopes up!  If they do, it opens up a whole new frontier for cat toy shopping as well as another hole in my wallet.   :D


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on August 22, 2011, 01:00:10 PM
Mitzie extremely rarely grooms anyone except herself, Stefie, me and now Max. Bf and Sophie fall into tolerated category :) Well, Max in his hyper mood also falls into tolerated category but I think she likes him when he is quiet.

For Viovet ordering, just make sure that your order is not too heavy, otherwise they won't offer shipping option. Sometimes when I order too many things (since I also get some food from them which I can't find here), I have to split it into two orders. They have fixed price for shipping, but it applies only for parcels up to certain weight. Try with one cat bed first, see if looks OK for shipping since if the shipping option does not show up at checkout that could mean parcel is too heavy, not that they don't ship.

Oh, so many good photos I'm not sure what to comment on!

That one of Sophie under the pretty comforter is stunning!

So it's so funny to then scroll one down to see Sophie in such a position.   ;D

All the pictures are cute (nice to see that Stefie has plenty of customers), but that last one of Sophie and Max is just great!  You can just see what Sophie is thinking by her face and posture.  :D

Awww - just looking through all those recentphotos - love the one of Stefie curled up next to Sophie flaked out on her back.  And then the one of him yawning - all that grooming of everone else is such tiring work.

Yes, the white wicker one is new, it is something called kitty ball bed, I just had to get it, looks great and fits in wonderfully in my place since almost everything is white.

LMAO! That's sooo funny, Alek. I've never seen such quirkiness with one leg. August's Yoyo has a floating leg when he sleeps but he's lying down. I don't know how Max keeps it up while sitting. What a cutie he is. Maybe it's his way of airing out his bum, lol!

Stef looks so handsome and trim!

So many great new pics. Max is becoming more expressive as he gets older - his eyes are really beautiful, as are Sophie's. He makes a super addition to your family.

Oh man, what fun!  Two birds and to be able to just sort of see them - what a great tease!  That must have been great!  I'll bet the bird feet, beaks and wings made some pretty great sounds scratching on the other side of the window.   :D

Carmen Purranda -- LOL! Awesome. Just imagine if those windows weren't frosted. They'd go completely nuts!

Since that is my bathroom and there is a building right opposite, I'm sure neighbors would find it very interesting if those windows weren't frosted, too.

It is a pity though, birds usually seem to show up on that side with the frosted windows, either bathroom or kitchen area. Although I am not sure if birds would be that close if windows weren't frosted. IN the old place birds would usually land  on ledges a floor above or below, never directly in front of the cats like this.

Today we had a typhoon so I was staying at home. Good thing too, very tired and sleepy. Max found new entertainment - he grabs a ping pong ball, carries it in his mouth to the bathtub, drops it in and then chases it around, you can imagine the noise. Favorite time for this activity: 2-4 am. Argh. Eventually I managed to hide all the ping pong alls and get some sleep.

Hope the typhoon wasn't too bad ! I've been there with the ping pong balls. Oreo once discovered that a golf ball made wonderful noise bashed against the walls in the middle of the night !

Isn't it funny how they hate noise made by others, but they love to make noise by themselves :) I've hidden all the ping pong balls, but now he brings mice into the bathtub. Well, at least those are not so noisy, lol.

If Max was black, he'd be Mr. T. He really reminds me of what my boy would have been like as a teenager (except for the unique sleeping position). Looove Sophie on the book (Mommy, you don't have to read this anymore. Really.).

They seem to be playing a game of "how to make humans most uncomfortable by having to twist into crazy shapes to find some space to sleep". And of course cat beds have to be on the bed, otherwise Mitzie goes into the living room, sits there and meows really loud until I bring the bed she wants and put it on our bed. On just the right spot, otherwise more complaints follow and I have to figure put whether it is the wrong bed or the wrong spot. Argh.

How bout a bunk?  They can have the bottom and you get the above one.  Of course no doubt they would start using the above and ignore the bottom bunk.

Aleko, which kitty is it in the pics that tends to sleep with the face down?  So darling!  And do I see a new kitty bed in the mix, the aqua one?  It matches Max's eyes so perfectly.  Where did you get it from? All your pictures are adorable, your kitties are a riot!

Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on February 27, 2012, 10:01:23 PM
Max is always spoiling for mischief. The latest thing is, we got automatic feeder set at 4 am so that we could sleep till 6 am or so, and the result is that Max does let us sleep longer in the morning, but in the evening there is no sleep for over half an hour after filling the feeder because he keep scratching it trying to open. Lol. You'd think he is starved, and he eats some S&C freeze-dried (free feeding) + 4 small 90 g cans all by himself +whatever others don't finish +treats (FD hearts every day +some other treats). I guess he is still growing, he is quite slim in spite of all that food.

There is something so comical about Sophie - she's so gorgeous and sophisticated but seems to have this "dry" humor about her.  And her bent ear is totally cute.   :-*

Actually, I wasn't looking at the eyes. I picked one with the cleanest ears, lol. I did pick a breeder among other things based on the fact that all cats looked bright-eyed, alert and happy on the photos.

Just catching up on several asets of pics here!  Max is, as you say, the clown - except for that first one of that set where he's sitting looking very regal - and a bit 'who dares take my picture'
And the others are all sweet, esp Stefie, who always looks loving/friendly (but you know he touches a special spot for me)

Love those yawning ones!   :D

And I always love every single toilet one.

I see one cardboard sofa bed wasn't enough.  Hehe.

Have you ever bought a bed that they don't like?  I'm just curious because you have such a good variety and I've been thinking about getting some new styles for over here.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on June 23, 2012, 10:48:05 PM
Sophie doesn't like warm fluffy beds, but other than that, they like all styles, some more, some less. They go through phases of what is favorite bed at any moment, but they like all of them. Cardboard sofas are a definite hit, and wicker baskets also.

Some Max pics. Silly boy must have seen photos of August's cats getting into high places, I'll have to be more careful which threads I look at when he is awake. ;D First time he got up there he got all dusty, then he kept going up there and in the end we just went to Japan home, bought some storage boxes which are a good fit to the space and stacked them up there. To comfort him, bf finally repaired his toy crocodile (he is much better with needle and thread than I am) :)

I think it's so cute the way Max is looking down at Sophie through the top of that cardboard thingy--you can almost hear him thinking, "Should I jump on her, or shouldn't I?"

Those cardboard cubes recently showed up in one of the pet supply shops where I buy cat food.  I'd love to try one, but I have a couple who think cardboard is a kind of litter box... :P

I'm so glad I saw your cardboard sofas!  I'd never have thought to buy them if I hadn't.  I currently have 10 at the house LOL and they are all used (6 of them are being used as King-size sofas - doubled up like you did).

Do you feed your guys Greek Yogurt every day?  Just about a teaspoon?  I've read about the benefits of doing that and have been thinking to try it out over here (I already know a couple Tinies like it).

Love that photo of Sophie enjoying hers.  And the collapsed apple.  LOL.

Post by: alek0 on July 25, 2012, 07:08:45 AM
Not every day, just if I am eating it and she want some I give her about a teaspoon or two. For cardboard sofas, no matter how many you buy they will definitely all be used :) Amazing how cats can stretch to fill up the space when they don't want to share  ;D

Stormy loves yogurt and ice cream! I only give her a tiny bit though since she has a sensitive stomach. That apple bed is really neat. I've been thinking of getting Stormy something like that where she can hide from Smoggy.

Glad you are home safe and sound.

Here she is under a different bed, seems to be her new sleeping habit:

Other favorite sleeping place is of course the box:

Max the yoga cat as well:

What else can a kitty ask for? A box of course! A box of Insanity (DVD set, workout)
(http://i794.photobucket.com/albums/yy227/alek0/DSC07294.jpg)

Although yoga is more in Max's style of a workout:

(http://i794.photobucket.com/albums/yy227/alek0/DSC07384.jpg)

And after all that hard work, of course he needs to rest. And others are also resting, I guess tired from watching Max :)

Face plant is her regular sleeping position:

Max on the other hand loves yoga so much, he does it in his sleep:

I really need to replace those cardboard sofas, they are getting worn out:

Thank you and your kitties, alek0, for providing me with welcome smiles today.

I especially like the photo of Max as a green apple (at least, I'm guessing that is what it is?)  You must have been very alert to catch him in that position!

Wow, your kitties do love those sofa's dont they?  I give up buying new stuff for Sophs, she likes it for about a day and then says pfft to it.  She much prefers the human couches and chairs and would also much prefer we be the ones to sit on the floor.   ;)  Your kitties are beautiful Alek0 and look really, really good!

New photos:

Sophie snuggling. She has finally acquired the habit of sleeping next to me, but she expects me to pet her entire time (otherwise she bites, gluteus or triceps depending what she can reach from her position):
(http://i794.photobucket.com/albums/yy227/alek0/DSC08089.jpg)

Sophie playing:

and he often closes his eyes while on the toilet, and his expression is so funny:
(http://i794.photobucket.com/albums/yy227/alek0/DSC08134.jpg)

Mitzie and Stefie:
(http://i794.photobucket.com/albums/yy227/alek0/DSC08110.jpg)

And all four, I should buy more of those cardboard sofas, since Sophie refuses to share and she needs two:

Aw, Sophie in green looks very elegant and charming.

And I can see two different lines of thought in Max.  1.  Ahhhhh.  and 2.  "Don't let me fall in, don't let me fall in, don't let me fall in...."

Yeah, those sofa makers are sneaky.  If they'd only make them a bit wider ... but instead they get you to buy two.  And for us, that means having to buy a ton.   ::)

Deflated exercise balls are pretty disgusting, aren't they?  It's amazing how much dirt and grime they collect on them but you don't know until the air is halfway out.   :P

Love Max doing sleep yoga in the 5th picture!  Stefie and Mitzie are always so sweet together.  How's the noise level of the new fountain compared to the Drinkwell?


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on March 03, 2013, 06:37:00 AM
No noise, very silent pump, you only hear the water. I've just disassembled it for cleaning, and I also tasted the water from Drinkwell, new fountain and their usual stainless steel bowl. Every different container water tastes different. Argh! I guess I'll just get stainless steel Drinkwell as replacement for plastic one, since all older kitties are prone to chin acne.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: catwoods on March 05, 2013, 02:20:03 PM
Love that fountain! I hope they will get used to it. All great pics but there is something about that 5th photo, it's just...intriguing.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: August on March 05, 2013, 05:31:14 PM
Fun fountain!  And I see some new cardboard items?   :D

Hopefully the others will catch on with the new fountain and then you won't have to be dealing with cleaning so many.

Continued good vibes to your babies.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on March 05, 2013, 06:18:09 PM
The ceramic one isn't difficult to clean, except for the plastic housing for filter and tubing (it has same filter as Drinkwell). Plastic gets slimy quickly and it takes more time to wash it off compared to stainless steel and ceramics.

I guess I'll definitely keep two fountains, I'll just replace plastic Drinkwell with stainless steel Drinkwell. With Sophie's recent UTI issue, I want everyone to drink as much as possible and if it means cleaning fountains, I'll be cleaning fountains :) Fortunately both models are straightforward to clean, all smooth round curves.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: August on March 05, 2013, 11:04:06 PM
I just wanted to make sure that you know that the square plastic part opens up into a few pieces?  There are some hard-to-clean spots in there that get gunky really quickly, too, especially knowing how many kitties you have.   :)


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on March 06, 2013, 02:14:12 AM
Yes, I know. Still a lot easier to clean compared to some other models. I tried one before and I gave up on it quickly, it was getting very gunky. Though that was before filling the fountain with filtered boiled water, that could be the difference. I've noticed that water in regular bowls stays cleaner for longer if I fill them with boiled water.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on March 10, 2013, 08:31:53 PM
Everybody except Stefie prefers Drinkwell 360. Argh. I will replace it with stainless steel one.

Love that last picture of all of them together.  And, Sophie's eyes are just so gorgeous in her picture!  I think cats are so cute when they put their paw across their forhead when they are sleeping.  What a unique picture of Max all rolled into a ball!   :)

I have lots of different kinds of beds, but not 9 of each, of course, and whenever I see one certain type of bed being used more than others, I start fantasizing about how I need to buy more beds of that particular type (which of course changes to a different type by the next day or so).

So of course that's what I did when I saw your last photo.   ;)

Everyone looks great!

Appearances can be decieiving sometimes. After taking that last photo, Mitzie and Sophie got into an argument over that scratcher. Sometimes I think that even if I had 4 identical pieces of each item, there would always be situations where two kitties want the same one  ::)

Mitzie seems to be getting more mellow and tolerant:

(http://www.coolinarika.com/image/mitzie-i-sophie-fe329d5bf719ac0892d938a79a943d5b_view_l.jpg)

Usually she would just sleep near her brother Stefie :)

Or maybe not so mellow... Couple of days ago when Max and Sophie were doing the usual noisy morning chase, she did jump of the bed, went up to them and slapped them both and went back to bed. I'll have to get that on video sometime, it is hilarious.

She is fluffy  ;D, there isn;t that much cat inside all the fluff. She is at a perfectly normal weight for a Ragdoll. Both boys are a bit on the skinny side, Mitzie was only chubby one and she has lost most of the excess weight when I started strict rationing of dry food.

All so cute!

Post by: alek0 on September 01, 2013, 09:35:36 PM
Yes, freeze dried shrimp. She loves that stuff. Also, shrimp sashimi is one of her favorites. She and Stefie love shrimp, octopus, scallop, crab etc. while two Ms will turn up their noses on anything other than tuna sashimi.

Post by: alek0 on November 03, 2013, 08:51:41 PM
Carrot shaped, with feathers. She loves anything with feathers, goes crazy over it and keeps rabbit-kicking it and licking the feathers.

We can't do feathers here--they all immediately eat them, even little Cara.

Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on November 06, 2013, 08:23:25 PM
You mean the green ceramic one?

I got it from here:
http://www.ceramic-pet-fountains.com

and it is OK to keep clean. Stainless steel 360 Drinkwell is easier, but some of my ate actually prefer this one (girls like Drinkwell, boys like this one, lol).

Post by: alek0 on December 01, 2013, 07:16:58 PM
Max is such an elegant cat, just like those Egyptian statues :) Unlike Sophie though, he doesn't expect to be worshipped. He is such a sweet boy, I love his habit of waking me up by climbing on me, kneading and purring :)

I had the exact same stability ball in my apartment before.   :-\    Who'd have known even tiny baby claws would puncture that thing.  And it loses air so slowly you hardly notice, except when they get to a deflated point where it feels oily to the touch, like an old balloon.   :P


I sure love all your beds.

When Max ruined mine it also deflated quietly and I saw puncture marks on it.

Fee, look at that little tail all fluffed up:

Fee:

(http://cdn.coolinarika.net/image/fee-69f4e409b74de3b952cac29e45ed020e_view_l.jpg?v=0)

Btw, one thing I noticed - when something startles her, she gets all fluffed up and she hisses. She is otherwise friendly and playful (bites a lot though). Any advice how to achieve more desirable personality development? Would it help to be exposed to more different people while she is young (I am concerned she will grow up being very shy and afraid of people). Anything else that can be done to make sure she is socialised properly?


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: August on January 13, 2014, 04:19:35 AM
The Tinies weren't exposed to a bunch of people very often (just a handful and only now and then), though I work at home and am always talking to them, touching and kissing them, singing to them and stuff like that, so they are "exposed" to human contact a lot (and as you probably know, I do tend to smother them  ;)  ).

They are particular about guests (totally scared of children), a couple of them hide when people they don't know come, others are interested to visit, and generally people often tell me they're surprised how friendly and affectionate they are. 

I was going to say that a lot of it has to do with Sunday's easygoing personality... but come to think it, the Larges are very friendly, and their mom was a feral cat who wouldn't let you come two feet close to her.  The Larges were exposed to children when they were kittens (their kittenhood was in the household of the friend of mine who took in the feral cat), and they don't (by chance?) have (much) of an issue when my young nephew comes over (rarely).


So the round-about answer from my experience is  :)  that it has a little to do with what they're exposed to and a lot to do with just their personality.

By the way, Wednesday bites hard.  He means it as a love nibble but it's a total bite and hurts.  It's not like he didn't grow up with siblings to teach him so I don't know what to say about that!   ???

Fee is absolutely adorables!!


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: catmom5 on January 13, 2014, 05:07:32 AM
I agree with August that a lot of it is genetic. My triplets came from a litter and mom that I fostered when the kits were 3 weeks old. They always had someone playing with them, but they are incredibly shy now (even before Buffy came home). Angel Jess was also a foster fail, but was about 10 months old and had been mistreated and grew up with a lot of cats and was very nervous and shy. Sassy's kits, though, were well socialized and were handled from birth on. And you can tell, from Spartycat's sharing, that they love everyone. So I think a lot is personality and genetics.

Given that, my daughter has a senior cat who wasn't well socialized as a kitten and she loves dogs, people (on her terms), but plays rough and apparently never learned "kitty manners".

Interesting question . . .
 


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: lesliek on January 13, 2014, 06:22:50 AM
Oreo bites & was a feral kitten , my Angel Patches stayed with her litter until 12 weeks & always bit & played rough . So obviously personality has to be part of it . It wouldn't hurt for Fee to spend more time with people & other animals though .


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: catbird on January 13, 2014, 06:30:48 AM
I agree that the basic attitude comes from personality, which is genetic, but I also know that kittens learn from their circumstances. I think it is wise for Fee to be exposed to some other cats regularly (but not so many that they are overwhelming). Having visitors, especially quieter ones, could help her overcome her fear of new situations, too. It is fairly normal for a young kitten to startle at visitors.

Post by: merrihart on January 13, 2014, 11:56:24 AM
Alex0, I tried very hard with bisi, taking her for outings and to the store, but she is even shyer than ever.  and she is very difficult to catch if she so much as catches a wiff of me planning on taking her out. 

beau and bella are much  easier.  beau doesnt even run.

so i think it's very dependent on the cat.

the playing rough is a matter of learing what is acceptable.   beau still pulls fur

When I first come in, she runs to me and purrs like crazy, but few mins later she goes into a constant attack mode. I guess she is just bored, too young to be left alone for hours.

Fee is a very naughty kitty. Does not react to "No" at all, and wants to play all the time. And bites a lot.

Any suggestions how to improve that are welcome. And she growled at the vet on her check up, and growled and hissed at us as well.

This site has some tips for dealing with a overly frisky cat:

http://www.aspca.org/pet-care/virtual-pet-behaviorist/cat-behavior/cats-who-play-rough

When I was socializing Deathclaw, I would yelp loudly and immediately stop interacting with her whenever she would attack or bite. After a few times, she learned to stop being aggressive with me. I also made sure to distract her with toys and praise her when she was doing things right. The younger they are when you start training them, the better. She was about 6 weeks when I started and it took about a week for her to learn appropriate behavior.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on March 10, 2014, 08:48:10 PM
Seems Fee is hopefully starting to grow out of biting behaviour. Now when I visit I get a few minutes of purring like crazy and licking my hands before she starts biting and playing.

New pics:

That round thing is a cardboard scratcher. All of mine are crazy about cardboard scratchers in all possible shapes.

And I can just imagine what things will be like when Fee is there also. I'll probably be repeating to myself "it is only temporary" at least 50 times a day :) That girl is constantly in turbo mode. Putting her and Max together would bring some real challenges. I bet you that the best possible outcome (that they tire each her out playing) is not going to happen.

The trick is in removable sofa covers. When it gets too damaged, I peel off the old one and put on the new one :)

Forgot to mention - great trick for removing cat hair from furniture - just use any kind of cheap sticky tape, stick it on and peel it off. Chair and sofa waxing, lol.

She is a handful. It is going to be really interesting when she is over at my place in July. I will take a week off, hopefully that will be enough for a smooth transition.

Post by: catbird on July 27, 2014, 11:02:29 AM
Yay new pics! Sophie certainly looks comfy there, and I love Stefie's "tongue" shot (Kalahari does that sometimes, too, forgets that it's out.)  I'm glad to see that Max likes the iPad cat app. We had it for Cara when she was a kitten, but she was too distractable to pay attention to it. Maybe I should try it again now that she is more settled.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: GKit on July 27, 2014, 03:06:50 PM
Yay! A Stefie fix!!  Lol Max and the iPad games. He certainly looks transfixed. Do they actually get to catch the things in the app?


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on July 27, 2014, 04:31:34 PM
He tries to catch the fish. That is the reason why iPad is on the floor, because he gets too enthusiastic about it, keeps banging on it with his paw. He doesn't try to catch laser light in the other cat game app but he loves the fish app.

He also tried to look under the iPad to see where did the fish go. Lol.

Post by: Mandycat on July 27, 2014, 07:00:57 PM
alek,
That iPad cat app looks really interesting!  My daughter's cat would love that!  Where do you find it to put it on the iPad?  Just one thing, though, wouldn't the iPad screen get scratched if they try to catch what is on it?  That might not be too good!   :-\


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on July 27, 2014, 08:17:03 PM
Max fortunately doesn't use his claws much (and they get trimmed regularly, he is such an easygoing cat, tolerates trimming the nails, comes when I yell "Pill time" and even purrs when I give him the pills).

The app can be found in Apple App store, just type in Cat game app and there are several.

Sophie with her toys, she is totally crazy about that loop mouse with feathers (as well as other mice with feathers, but the one with the loop is new favourite) on her ear in the first picture, she is holding the other mouse. I got it on Amazon for 6$.

Max is also sweet, but a bit naughty. Girls have a bit of a temper and can be quite jealous.

Max also has a bad habit of peeing on the bed or towels when he is not happy with the attention he is getting, if we are very busy with work or if one or both of us are away. When I was on a conference in Hawaii he actually peed on dh (he normally sleeps on him), and after I got back he peed on my towel. When I commented that he is a naughty cat, dh just said - he is a good cat, that is not important, important thing is that he is healthy. Almost made me cry. Same when I watch him giving Max his pills in the morning, two pills to swallow and Essentialle Forte capsule we usually smear around his mouth since they changed the formulation and it is now too thick to mix into the food and capsule is too big for a cat to swallow. You should hear all the sweet nonsense he is telling Max during pill giving since Max is not too enthusiastic about Essentiale, pills are no problem. So dh tells him - time for your makeup Max, all the girl cats will think you are very handsome etc.

Post by: alek0 on May 09, 2016, 06:44:44 PM
Max is such an easy going cat, fortunately considering 4 pills daily and weekly blood pressure check. He was so well behaved for echocardiogram also. He does try to run away from blood samples taking, but that's about that.

Sophie on the other hand bites whenever she is not too happy, and she carries on so much when having a haircut you would think she is terribly upset. She put in a similar performance when we checked her blood pressure and it was 110/85, little stinker. She is ready for Hollywood (or would be, if she would stay still for her haircut!)

It is very uneven this time around, we should try to fix this. Little miss on top of the food box, she would love to get in, but can't figure out how  :D

Post by: ranger on May 10, 2016, 02:37:55 AM
Food box? What is that exactly? ???


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on May 10, 2016, 03:08:54 AM
A box with programmable door (currently kept in learning mode since Mitzie is only one who figured out how to use it, Max has no interest in dry food, Stefie is scared of cat doors and never uses them, and Sophie can't figure it out or might be too big for the door).

I keep renal dry inside since Mitzie needs frequent small meals, otherwise she throws up due to excess stomach acid, and Sophie can't eat any kind of kibble since it gives her bloody diarrhoea, but she really loves kibble. Hence the box so that Mitzie can eat it, and Sophie has no access. It can be programmed for access based on microchip number or RF tags on collar.

There are programmable feeders on Amazon but they don;t ship to HK, so I got the box. I wish I could have gotten the feeder since that might have worked for Stefie.

The box is called MeowSpace:
http://meowspace.biz

The feeder which has the same function is:
http://www.amazon.com/SureFlap-MPF001-SureFeed-Microchip-Feeder/dp/B00O0UIPTY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1462878923&sr=8-1&keywords=feeder+microchip

This I have not been able to try yet, but posting the link in case anyone has issue with multiple conflicting diet requirements.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: August on May 11, 2016, 07:08:06 PM
Sophie looks nice with her haircut!  She looks a little younger, too.   :D

Cool feeding box. 

I found that my big Tinies can fit through the Pet Mate small cat door with no issue, so my guess is Sophie could get through that box door.  (I changed my small Pet Mates to medium Dog Mates because our issue was with various heights.)

That's so awesome about Max's easygoing qualities!


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on May 11, 2016, 07:55:00 PM
The door on the box is a bit smaller than Petmate small cat door I have on the bathroom door. Part of the problem is also the depth of the door, which is about double compared to Petmate. The company does make boxes for dogs too and they come with larger doors. I am quite happy with current situation though :) I wish Stefie would use it also, but I didn't have high hope of that since he never uses cat door for the bathroom.

Alex you are a multi talented woman. May I ask what you use to trim Sophie? Do you by any chance trim her bloomers? This an issue with Sammy, he puts his butt too close to the litter.  Good to know about that food box it case I have to do special food for one.


Title: Re: Mitzie, Stefie, Sophie and Maxwell
Post by: alek0 on May 13, 2016, 05:28:37 AM
Trimming  that area is a must for most long hair cats. We trim that, collar area since she tends to get knots there even when brushed regularly since it always gets dirty with food, and also hair on her feet since otherwise she slides on the floor. I hold her and dh trims, haircuts when sleeping work only for small fixes. We just use sharp scissors, if the scissors get dull the hair is pulled a bit and it is more uncomfortable. Those sold in pet shops areno good, kitchen scissors or scissors for human haircuts are much better.

Btw, i am currently trying various solutions for special diet requirements, once i try all the stuff recently ordered i ll post product reviews. most recent trial, one of those four slot programmable feeders so that Stefie would get some food while i am at work, was a total failure. Stefie is afraidof it, And Max keeps trying to open it if there is food inside.

During my absence, pet sitter left the bunny cushion on the bed and guess what - Max peed on it. After I got back, getting the stink out of it was pretty much mission impossible. So I went to buy a replacement, but bunny cushions were out of stock. However, Max seems to be happy with his snowflake cushion:

He gained some weight back, now back at 4.1 kg, and he ate a whole can for breakfast this morning, and half a pouch of RC k/d an hour later :)

Post by: NedF on June 19, 2016, 10:57:42 PM

Happy Belated Birthday, Sophie! All kitties looking good and contented. About the cat-carrying garment with cat ears, I am now suddenly seeing cat-eared garments advertised everywhere online, although without the carrying part.

Mitzie:
(https://coolinarika-cdn.azureedge.net/image/mitzie-21cd0c61a0235b2ea7dc36e32141d12f_view_l.jpg?v=10)

You can see that she still looks sad, and she needs more attention than before. She eats well when she gets breakfast in bed, has become more picky with food. Creatinine is stable and right at slightly above the upper limit of normal, everything else is OK except that she was slightly anaemic but she got vit B complex shot and hopefully that should improve. The next check up is in three months.

Sophie:
(https://coolinarika-cdn.azureedge.net/image/sophie-75789c0248cc199bbad6e2752b21033a_view_l.jpg?v=10)

This photo was taken 5 mins after the vet left. You can see how stressed out the poor girl is with the blood test and check up  :D We have been really lucky with home visits, it is so much easier for the cats, and also taking blood from the paw seems less stressful. All good, blood tests will be done née a year since she is now ten. Can't believe she is ten already.

Max:
(https://coolinarika-cdn.azureedge.net/image/max-fe337399220aeb975cf4ed4965a517e5_view_l.jpg?v=10)

He is doing great, everything normal for the liver with getting some kidney food in addition to normal diet and he is still on SAMe and ursodeoxycholic acid. And amlodipine for unexplained high blood pressure. Now we only need to do check up every 6 months. Fingers crossed for his echocardiogram in May, one everything was OK on the last one, so hopefully no unpleasant surprises.

Household dynamics has inevitably changed, no fighting but the girls are sometimes frustrated by Max being a big pest since he wants to play 24/7.
