A TNR cat has been hanging around my neighborhood, primarily my backyard, and of course, I have fallen in love with him and named him Jude. (I named him after the song Hey Jude by the Beatles) I made him a nice, cozy cat house and put it in my shed (Its insulated with hay, too.) I give him two hearty meals a day and pet him frequently. I would like to make him an outside cat but there's a small little problem: Jasper. Jasper is my year-and-a-half cat whose been an only cat since he was just a baby. I've tried nearly everything. I even tried rubbing a sock on Jude and letting Jasper smell it but nothing has worked. Just now I persuaded Jude to come inside for a moment but Jasper lashed out ._. Any suggestions?

Edit: Also, if I pet Jude and Jasper smells him on my hands he claws me :')

I wanna get so many kitties ;w; I wanna get a Bengal someday (who I plan to call Jordi XD), and I have a variety of other kitty names I would name my fuzzy babies. So anxious to get to the day where I can make this happen.

Just make sure to do plenty of research before you settle on a specific breed. Bengals are known to be very active and needy, which can easily lead to destructive behaviors if you can't put in enough time to play with them and satisfy all of their needs.

The world bends
around you
And living through
cracked screens
We fall down to
what we want
Out of love, we
talk through lines
made of smoke
And just in time,
we drift away
Diffusing light,
confusing times
Growing up,
or cascading down?
Cascading down
I'm hurting now

New here, I own three cats. Have no pictures to show at this time unfortunately.

Snowpaw, a white long-hair with a black spot on her head. She's going on 15 this year. Still a cranky old gal as ever, can still get to where she wants so her age isn't effecting her ability to play or nap where she likes. Cx She doesn't like me much, because when I was five I once dumped a Dixie cup of water on her and she's never gotten over that. She's very salty all the time, but she's gentle to my brother and grandmother. Her name has no relation to the Warrior's fandom.

Mia, she's going on 6-7 years. She was my Dad's cat but after he moved he couldn't afford her so she lives with my grandmother. A beautiful black cat with yellow-green eyes. Very cheerful, loves to follow people around and sometimes acts more like a dog then a cat. Always begging for table scraps, lightly patting your leg for attention, she even watches tv. She'll run up on her favorite chair when the tv turns on. Her favorite shows are youtube videos of birds, and watching my siblings and I play SSB4. Recently she's started sleeping with me when I visit. She paws at the door until I let her in, then she lays on a pillow next to me or in a box on the floor. In the morning around 4 she wakes me up with headbutts and licks till I get up and let her out.

Alchemy is my last cat, and my baby. I found her outside when she was just a kitten, along with her siblings. Her siblings were taken by a older woman, who moved. So I don't know what became of them. But Alchemy got to stay with us and she's been a happy (and slightly chubby but we're working on that) cat. She's also the smallest cat I've ever owned. We're not sure why she's stayed so small. At no point was she sick or injured to have stunt her growth but she's about the size of an average juvenile cat, even though she's going on being 5. She doesn't seem to mind her size though compared to the other cats. Still enjoys playing and sleeping in the sun. She's black and white with greenish eyes. Loves to talk to people with chirping and meowing noises. During storms she hides under my bed blankets until I come and sit with her.

Currently we have some baskets and boxes scattered around the house, along with 3 scratching post. Two of them have baskets attached but they are getting worn down. So we're thinking about buying our first cat tree. Something with enough room for all cats to sleep comfortably- since Snowpaw gets annoyed around the other two cats. She probably thinks her age is giving away her 'I'm the boss of this house' to Mia. But I don't think she has to worry. Anyway we're looking at one with an enclosed box area for Alchemy who loves to hide, and a open top bed for Snowpaw so she can lay in the sun. Also thought about adding a ramp for the later years of Snowpaw.

Mia and Snowpaw love to sit outside on the porch, though they are not allowed down the steps or to the ground. They sit with whoever's outside in the summer time in the chairs or by the flowerpots. Mia has to be watched more carefully. She likes to explore a little too much. And lastly Alchemy doesn't like to come outside but she likes to sit by open windows. Which I think is funny because she was originally an outdoor cat.

So that's my introduction to the cat chat.

I have a cat who adopted my family. He had been hanging around our house for a bit so we fed him and now he stays. We named him Red Beard (because he has a red tuff of fur on his chin) and even took him to our new house when we moved. He is an outdoor cat when we found him and he is staying that way because of our dogs. We haven't really bought dry cat food in a while so we have been giving him dog food and he really has fattened up. It's funny seeing a cat walk on your porch one day all skin and bones and now he has gotten so big xD

    Please do not feed your cat dog food, it can make them seriously ill!! Cats require taurine, an amino acid, to be in their diet, but dogs can produce it themselves so most dog food is not supplemented with it. Cats can develop very severe heart conditions if they are deficient in taurine for extended periods of time. Cat food is made for cats for a reason; please get the diet your cat needs.

Hey, does anyone else's cat here have feline IBD?

My cat takes daily medication to control his symptoms.

Does anyone know if this effects a cat's life expectancy? I'm hoping that with the medication he'll still have a painless and happy long life.

I swear my cats just love making me spend money hahah.
I got them and one was on antibiotics, provided by the shelter. He eventually got over it and then got sick again shortly after. I took him in and he received another dose of antibiotics, this time a shot rather than a medicine I administered and he got over it. Now once again he is sick no longer than a month later, so this is his third time with an URI. When I got them I also had to treat them for a VERY mild case of fleas. Didn't even realize they had them until a couple days in and luckily was able to get rid of them all very quickly without a sign of them returning after months of them (My kittens) being here.
And now just today one of them threw up worms. Unsure which one but I have a good guess being as his belly is a bit distended and his appetite hasn't been quite the same the last few days. Other than that he's acting fine so I'm hoping his spaghetti intestine friends aren't bothering him too bad.
I'm just glad I work at a veterinary clinic because I think I'd go broke with the two appointments I've already had on top of antibiotics and now the couple courses of deworming medication both of them will need.

I just feel bad I couldn't catch the worms earlier because he's probably had them for awhile, but I guess what can I do when he's been asymptomatic up until now.

P.s. they're both indoor cats and have been since I got them. So, I just seem to have a stroke of bad luck with my boys.
