Looking back at that first pictures, I see my error. what I thought was white, is lit by direct sunlight; what I thought was red, is lit by incandescent light that turned his white fur a shade of red.
With that new understanding, I see that Dio is, indeed, having a great time in the top pic :3
Wait a minute! I see pictures of two different cats here. The first pic is of a calico, which is almost certainly female, and the second pic is of a black-and-white tabby, which may be female but probably 2/3 likely male. I assume this tabby is Dio, since you talk about him in the masculine gender. Who is the calico, who’s looking like she’s…[Read more]
Mortimer is going to grow into a beautiful cat, such interesting and unusual colors!
You should be aware that “regular ol'” cow’s milk will not give him the immunities that he needs; he should get cat’s milk, which should be available at any pet shop.
Good luck! I wish you many wonderful years with this sweetie!
I’m so glad your mommies took you in so you can grow up safe and well-fed. I hope your human mommies know that you need cat’s milk to give you the immunities that you would have gotten from your mother’s milk, had she not abandoned you. Cow’s milk won’t give you those.
Have a great, long life!
Thank you for taking care of adorable little Ciri! I assume that since you seem to care enough about how to best take care of her to go searching for info, then you are already giving her cat’s milk, not cow’s milk. Good for you!
Best of luck, I hope she grows up to be healthy and happy for many years :3
Peanut & gumball are adorable little darlings! I’m so glad you gave them a home.
You should be aware that they need cat’s milk, not just “regular” cow’s milk. Ordinarily they would get needed immunities from their mother’s milk so, without that, cat’s milk should give them what they need. You should be able to get it at any pet supply…[Read more]
Easy to tell whether your sweet pussy is a him or a her: take a look under the tail, between the legs. If you see a little cone or circle, it’s a boy. If you see a slit (front to back) it’s a girl. Then you can change the name if you like, but I think Jenner is a fine name for a cat of either sex, :3
I’m not sure what KMR is, but I think that goat’s milk is not right for this adorable little guy… he should be eating/drinking cat’s milk (which you can find in most pet supply shops) to give him immunities to things that trouble cats. Ordinarily he would have gotten those from his mother’s milk.
Good luck with him!
Bottle feeding is good, provided you’re giving him cat’s milk and not cow’s milk. You can get cat’s milk at most pet stores. Why not cow’s milk? It won’t give him the immunities to cat diseases that he needs. Normally he’d get that from his mother’s milk.
My first cat, Willow, had FIV when we first took him in. I’d like to tell folks a little about FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus):
– It’s kind of like HIV except it’s not transferred the same way; a cat gets it from a bite or a scratch from an infected cat.
– A cat with FIV can continue to live 10 years or so… but it will have some…[Read more]
Not all cats with the colorpoint gene are Siamese. Siamese is a specific breed of cat, which has the colorpoint gene as well as other traits, such as the head shape and a certain, raspy kind of meow.
That said, I am partial to colorpoint cats, and think Artemis is beautiful right now and will probably only be more so as her color grows in…[Read more]
Oh yowch! I’m glad he’s doing better now; that you started him off with cat milk tells me you know what you’re doing and so I will bow to your experience. (I’ve only lived with two cats in my life so far, and they were both grown up when I met them.)
Best wishes! I hope Leo has a long and happy life.
Almost — but not quite — certainly a female. Probably something like 99.99% chance of being female. Male tortoiseshells and calicos do exist, but they are rare because it requires a genetic abnormality, an extra X chromosome. That means they have XXY instead of the usual XY for males (females are XX or, rarely XXX). XYYs also exist but they…[Read more]
Bandit is a beautiful little guy, but I doubt he’s a purebred Siamese cat. He clearly has the colorpoint gene, which brings darker fur to all the pointy areas, the parts that are a little colder than his main core temperature. Siamese and other breeds have that gene, as do plenty of mixed-breed cats. It’s so sad about his mother, but I’m glad…[Read more]
