This is a common cat behavior. Your head is the warmest part of your body, and the cat has discovered this. Cats like warm things.


He seems to be sticking his hindquarters into me face every night , frequently some nights/ mornings .
Is he willing me to pull his paw or is it some sort of dis?

Most likely a matter of personal feline preference. One of ours sleeps wrapped around Mrs. T's head like a pair of headphones.

The cat has been trying to mate with my arm , he wraps his forepaws around my wrist and tugs and stuff . I don't like the stuff .
This behaviour began when Kevin first met him , the cat became very anxious and was mounting his arm with big eyed ,focused determination .
He reminded me of Cat from " Red Dwarf " as he sniffs the air after landing on Earth ,

"I want something , I don't know what it is. , but I want lots of it ."

Kevin stopped by on Sunday and the cat immediately jumped on him trying to hump his arm .Six months have passed since his last visit and cat knew his favourite squeeze was back . The spectacle was hilarious to witness .
The cat has small lesion on his face that was noticed last week and i am very concerned , it looks similar to what afflicted ole Fritz in the early stage .
His "owner" has not put away a penny for Larry for a vet these past two years and it is going to be difficult to smuggle him in and out and back again since he not allowed here in the first place .
I hope that little pink lesion goes away because i am feeling stressed over it .

I had two twin, midget kittens for less than a month.
After about a month of visiting them at ARF, the ARF people finally let us take them home (they refuse to allow pets to be bought around Christmas time, because many people buy pets, then give them back after realizing they can't take care of them). I had warned my mother a month beforehand that since she was allergic to many things, among them dust and dogs, that she should go check if she was allergic to cats.
She refused.
Fast-forward about three weeks, and she's telling us that she's giving the cats back because she can't take her allergies anymore, and not to be mad at her for it.
I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure I have every **** right to be mad at her, especially considering she didn't even TRY to look into medication or vitamins to fix it (some people just lack certain vitamins, which can lead to their immune system acting up, thus they have allergies). She's the parent so I don't get to show I'm mad in the slightest. I can't even say, "I told you you should have checked if you had cat allergies", or, "Why don't you TRY to find a way to fix it before just giving them back?" :facewall: :bummer: :furious:
The ARF people told us they lick your eyelashes when you're in REM at night. So yeah, they were both really cute. Both had stunted growth, and weren't even a year old yet. I'll upload pictures if I can.
EDIT: Because they're so small, they love to just sit on your shoulder while you walk around. Just don't lift your arm too high.

Oh well , 3 in the am and no sleepy , took Larry for a stroll down the hall and back again , then i left him in the hall guarding the door while i was in the kitchen . I am trying to save perishables by pre cooking and also repacking food to fit in the freezer .
Using energy at off hours saves us condo owners a lot of money over the course of the year .
Time to bring in the cat , i expect security to making rounds soon .
Cat came back in whining for me a few times trying to guilt me into going for another .

Twinkie went to the Rainbow Bridge this morning. She had developed a tumor on her vocal chords, and was almost unable to breathe.

I found her at a job site in 2002. She was a small kitten, in imminent danger of being munched by a random dog. It was a rural job site where I was building a home with/for my employer at the time, no other residences within any reasonable (for a kitten) distance. I snatched her away from the dog and tossed her in the front of the truck, and brought her home. She was a polydact, huge paws all around. Very sweet. Her BF Ozzie will miss her, as will her humans.

And now we're down to just five cats, from our high-water mark of 44 about 15 years ago. Dita went over the bridge Tuesday. Remaining are Fluffernutter (19), Princess (17), Teddy (15?), Lefty (10?), and Kokopelli (6). Also Hitch, the dog. Seems like the house is empty now.

We have a new dungeon cat.

Found as a stray, looking a bit thin and sorry for himself. Local animal shelter has a waiting list of over 40 cats already so couldn't take him in, so said we'd foster him. Assuming his owners don't turn up in the next 30 days (and given condition, and he wasn't microchipped it's unlikely), he's staying permanently. But in the meantime doing the cycle of getting him "snipped", vaccinated etc

Been dubbed Freddie - was hoping for a more Cardinal-ish type name, but was overruled. Has a bit of an annoying tendency to weave between your ankles. But gets on well with the attack slugs, so all's well
