I'm new to the forms, I have an all black cat male name Bindi.( creative name I know) I found Bindi or maybe he found me, last summer during aug. A mother cat with 6 kittens was at my dads girlfriends house. Micky is her name Four of the kittens were black and white, one gray and then one black. I knew that blacks dont often get adopted and I could sense something speical about him. He was I think the second largest of the litter and had a kink in his trail, birth defect I assume. Their mother was not very large a semi longhair that was pritty thin, black and white. She was nice to me, expect once when I was wrestling with one of mickys kids(guy thing) I almost steppped on her and she scratched me because her kittens weere playing in the same room, stupid I know. Luckily no cat was hurt. But according to my dads girlfriend she had some behavior troubles wiuth the mother, probably from living as a stray, she wasn't feral because she let people touch her. The father we don't know but I've heard rummors about a mean black- black white tomcat that lives wild by that area. I've never seen a feral cat. The area I live in is pretty tame in that the servives dont allow much of that sort of thing though we do get dogs that break out of their yards from time to time sometimes I find them and return them home. Michy ried her best to find homes for the kittens http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/ima...ilies/clap.gif I took in Bindi and she gave three more away to a friend from her work. The next two she took to a shelterhttp://www.thecatsite.com/forums/ima...ilies/clap.gif Sadly the mother cat had so many issues with acting aggessive ( I think she was protecting her babies, they were other cats in the home,) that she was most likly put to sleep at a shelter:http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/ima...lies/frown.gif I think had Micky been able to place her at the time things would have worked out better but the shelters were full. Luckly Bindi was vet treated for fleas, nuetured and vaccanated. He is on Innova evo ( Thanks guys Panther pride has been stalking here for a long time) Bindi is curently eight months old but he will never be a very large cat oh well hes got plently of personality to make up for it.http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/images/icons/icon6.gif

Thank you for all the comments I love it its nice to have people that like cats talk with me. Bindi's photos will arrive soon my dad has foot problems, runs in the family, and cannot do it tonight. Computer camaras arent my thing. By the way I posted a post about how i thought my posting was eraced, you dont have to post there. The night after last, Tom, my dads older cat caught a mouse that Bindi stole I managed to rescue that poor crature and am thinking about placing it up for adoption at Petco. I looked it up online and it said that House mice cannot survive if relesed into the wild and I oviously cannot releve it back into our house.http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/ima...s/rolleyes.gif What your veiws on this? Both me and my dad are trying to get rid of our mouse problem this was the third capture this winter the other two didn't have such good endings. I'm glads our cats are such good mousers though. The last one he killed was dead already when I caught him so I made a promise to Bindi that I would give in the mouse back after my friend left and I did. When he got tired of it I threw it out.

Welcome (again), Bindi and PantherPride:

That is a sad story and we sure do hope that Bindi will be neutered soon as possible, for all the obvious reasons!

He is desexed already did it in december. I tried to do it as soon as possible. 5 months! my vet wanted six! He has a good vet though I think they just want to be careful with the gas they use, old time caution. I try to bathe him with cat wipes and brush his teeth, He hated it so much that I resorted to tooth spay. I was afriad that if I waited much longer he would start to spray. I have High Funtioning Autism and am looking at moving either into a group home or an appartment soonhttp://www.thecatsite.com/forums/images/smilies/confused.gif. I dont think anyone including me would want to put up with spraying, roaming or fighting. http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/ima...ilies/wink.gif

Dear PantherPride:

GOOD ON YA for getting him neutered; it's a somewhat controversial subject as to the right age, but more and more vets agree that early-age spay/neuter is safe, and with cats becoming sexually mature earlier and earlier (like humans, lol), it's best and most responsible to "nip 'em in the bud" before they get pregnant (or impregnate). You did the right thing. ConCATulations! And you're so right -- roaming and fighting are no good, and spraying ain't hot on most folks' hit parade, although there are behavioral aids and excellent enzymatic cleaners to help with that. Of course, keeping cat indoors-only is safest and best, as I'm sure you've read from others around on the site, and heard about elsewhere. It means that car accidents, vicious dogs, poisonous plants, antifreeze, and psychopathic people can not harm the cats we love; they are free from fleas, ticks, and other parasites when kept indoors, and with a little bit of nice cat furniture or scratching pads, safe, entertaining toys, and attention from human companions (and what's better still, multiple cats!), cats can remain very happy indoors. Ask us!

HI John, And Tarsa Girl thanks for giving me a warm welcome. Today I went out and brought cat food. Some solid gold dry and Innova evo wet, and a free sample dry! I might combine those two dry later on I'll have to see. I agree getting cat neutered is importent not just for the quality of the pet you have but also to help overpopulation. I wonder how many stray feral cats live per anrce in the city I sure don't see them much. Bindi was the first relation to any stray cat I've ever had though.( His father is probably a feral) I might have seen one by Carrys house, she was a woman who used to watchme while my mother was still alive, friend of the family. I talked with a teacher at Neighborhood house she took one in. chi chi. I think. Our neighborhood is very stray cat free, once however while I was walking by the train tracks by my house, up by the fence there a grassy path , never go down below unless is Berry seson, I found a cat skull. http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/ima...es/bawling.gif It might have been from a racoon or somthing but I wonder http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/ima...s/confused.gif I leave out birdseed not for cats but for squrails and other wildlife its fun to watch and Bindi likes to watch and lash his tail excitablly. Keep him scritly indoors because I like seeing the animals and keeping Bindi safe
post #20 of 142
THANKS for your caring for cats!!! and other animals, too -- just speaking personally, my own spiritual belief is that, if one Creator made all living beings (as I believe is the case), then all living beings are sacred, and we must respect and treat them all compassionately, and help them whenever they need help. I also love to feed and give water to the animals who come onto our land (2.5 acres in the Mojave Desert, where it can be pretty harsh to survive). I put out bird seed, hummingbird nectar, rabbit pellets, and water for anyone who wants to come by and have some. The land is completely fenced, AND all cats in my care are indoor-only, of course. The chickens are in a compound, too, because either dogs or coyotes jumped two fences awhile back and got six of our remaining ten birds; so the four hens we have left have to live in a compound, for their own safety, until my husband re-wires the electric charge on their yard fence. Then when we move, I hope they either can go with me, or that whoever buys the house will be agreeable to keeping them as companions, and treat them well.

Life's hard for almost everyone, I think -- and I sure couldn't keep on going without the love of cats!!!

Good veiw's I like that. Right now Bindi is on my lap as I'm typing this, dads cleaning the kichen and I dont want him to get pine sol on his paws. My dad once had a girlfriend who lived in the desert and I got to walk around there and explore the wildlife, dont think I could stand the heat!http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/ima...laughing02.gif. People can die just from walking in midday for a few miles.
post #22 of 142
Well, St. Paul, I can see how you might feel that way! But if you're born in the climate, it's what you're used to, and you're acclimatized to it. I feel that way about the cold, and never thought I could survive in a place where it snows (and yes, it snows here! We are up at 4,100 feet, so we DO get snow) but I'm doing it! Actually I love the heat, and as long as I have plenty of water or whatever to drink, I'm fine with that.

Purrs to Bindi! from all of us!

Thanks from Panther Pride yet again. I was playing with a new video camra thats a little hand held one. I shot photos of semi tame wild deer and Bindi in my house. I'm quite the photograperhttp://www.thecatsite.com/forums/images/smilies/laughing02.gifhttp://www.thecatsite.com/forums/images/smilies/agree.gif. I'm also writing about adventure( check out my stuff in paws a reflect) Because my mind drifts off into a trance like state several times throughout the day I'm pritty good at immagining things and writing. http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/ima...laughing02.gif I'm probably going to have my wisdom teeth removed soon eeek! But I'l just grin and bear it I plan on making a necklace from those teeth. I'm a member of a trading post at the sciene muscium and maybe I'll get some animal teeth and bones to go with it and give it a nice prehistoric look.. http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/ima...s/rolleyes.gif Bindi is doing well.. widsh I could get a picture for you guys.

I have some teeth from our cougar that would make a cool necklace. These are his baby teeth that he lost about 6-8 months ago.

Hey Panther Pride!

Me too -- I'm sure everyone here would LOVE to see photos whenever you do have them and want to post them! My slow dialup connection means I am pretty limited in viewing people's videos...Lovinmom828 has made two fantastic movies featuring cats from TheCatSite,and I can't see either one of 'em because of this, boo hoo!

Take it from someone who's been there -- getting those teeth out shouldn't be too bad, especially if you have someone to take care of you after the procedure. You'll be doing some weird things for awhile, like probably drinking stuff out of a straw, and using a monoject syringe (no needle, though!) to clean the areas, but you'll bounce back quick as long as you just do everything the dentist tells you to do. I'll be thinking good thoughts for ya!
Let us know how it all comes out, okay?

Sorry, I am keeping Carmelo's baby teeth I have such a strong bond with my cougar and those teeth remind me of the time he spent living in our house with us, when he was a cub. I do want to make something with them, but just haven't figured out what yet

I heard that sometimes people get more then four wisdom teeth, rare but it happens, some people have none, others like my job couch get all the luck they get theres in no probelm.http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/ima...laughing02.gif. Bindi is now learning how to use a harness and lesh, I plan on having outside adventures with him this coming summer. I might also write a book called Path of The Panther, explning the adventures in greater detail.
