Cat trees... one way up and one way down.  Not nearly as exciting!

Can you feed them separately and see if things go a bit smoother?

Your place is definitely a fun place for cats, especially ones that climb!  I kinda feel like a party pooper.  We have everything strategically placed so the cats can't climb up on anything, other then cat trees.  Refrigerator excluded.

But I don't have room for cat trees.  I live in a tiny space with multiple cats, it's kind of crucial that I provide adequate climbing and elevated spaces for them to keep them feeling happy and non stressed.

Since there is no room for cat trees I had to sort of turn the entire living space into a cat tree.  :D They can go around the entire apartment without ever hitting the floor if they want.

I always tell people who are looking for help with behavioral problems in multicat households to be sure they have enough climbing and elevated spaces for every cat.

I still feel bad about taking Queen Eva's box spring mountain away from her.  She drooped and mourned for weeks after it was gone. But I need access to that closet it was blocking!

Dog Chatter / Re: Misa - Learning To Trust Humans

I have been scratching my head big time how a dog can be SO fearful, yet is totally 100% non-threatening.  I have always heard that a fearful dog = a dangerous dog.  Sooooo not the case with Misa. 

We kept thinking that she just needed some adjustment time.  She HAS made a lot of adjustments.  However she is sooooo far from being a "normal" dog, that I continued to scratch my head.  I recently started reading a bit about street/feral dogs.  Soooooo much makes sense now.   We still have a lot to learn though.

Yes.  In time, she will probably hang by her front paws and make her way around the door frame that way.  :)

Well there is this......but that was when she was tiny, and confined to the bedroom.



So she is a Treckie - going places where no one has gone.

So much for sleeping in. SO played possum or better lumber jack when ChaCha dug me out while Izzi watched which made ChaCha fuss at her. I played my role of short order cook well until Izzi decided she does not want to eat. In circles we went and she changed her mind. By then ShadowCat wash grey agipain after all of 30 seconds of finishing 3/4 can and I had to step in front of her to keep her from pushing Izzi away. Nothing like two stepping barefoot while not awake.
Two hours later - same players, slightly different approach. I picked ShadowCat up and simply turned her around. Tried that without getting a hernia. Then she outsmarted me and got under a chair with side rungs; basically a jungle gym for cats under the table. I got her tail! Yes, I did the devious deed. It is very thick, about two inches at the base and has a tiny blond tip. Madder then a wet hen came to mind. It did not deter her on her never ending search for food. Izzi was done. She just steps away when she does not want to eat more.
ChaCha has learned that once Izzi steps away left overs are fair game. What am I going to do with ShadowCat? She is getting fat, refuses to play, had health issues such as pulled tendons and UIT and a trapped fart (yes, official diagnosis after blood work, X-rays and MRI) and is simply grumpy?
