Say "Hi" to Substantial Cat! A neighborhood stray we adopted about 2 1/2 years ago. He weighed 14 lbs last Feb when we had him neutered. Today, I get to try to get him in a carrier for his second visit to the vet by myself!! His claws are very long and sharp.

Just try giving a cat a bath, you will see those claws up close and personal!
My wife found a waterless shampoo for pets and we use that!! As long as I don't have to get stitches, I'll be ok.

Before: About two weeks after the kids found a tail and pair of ears starving in the church parking lot, and named "Samantha".


After: About 2yrs old, 32lb "Samuel", above the staircase waiting for someone's head to bonk.

:D When my two Snowshoe Birman sisters came into heat, the step daughter finally agreed that Sam was a "HE", and shortly after an "IT".
He was a character, when the three females got into a scrap, he would stroll into the center of it, sit down, and that was the end of it. He was never really fat, just a big cat.
He hurt his hip coming down the stairs one time, and we had to give him kitty Motrin. Trying to give a cat that big, a pill, was like trying to hold a spool of barbed wire chucked in a spinning lathe. Took 3 of us to do it, and there was blood. After about the 3rd or 4th dose, he would come looking for the pill, and swallow it.
Succumbed to feline kidney disease two years ago at 18, broke her heart to put him down.

We're baby sitting our grand dog Sugar. But don't mention she's a dog if she can hear you! View attachment 223592
By far my favorite dog the Boston Terrier. I have owned them all my 60 years. We have 2 now. One is brown and white, the other blk and white. My wife posts my photos for me so when she gets home Tuesday I'll post pics.

Sounds like me trying to give a pill to my daughter's Shih Tzu named Gizmo - all five pounds of him. Sorry to hear you lost Sam - losing a fur baby is hard. This is our latest, a mini-panther named Webley in her favorite observing position.

I'll never attempt to stuff a cat in the toilet ever again.:zombie:

Mac, I think Webley seems disappointed the lap disappeared.:)
Not really, the little beastie was never a lap cat. She was a shelter rescue, which had rescued her from an extremely bonkers cat lady who must've had at least fifty cats, several dogs and a goat all living under one roof. I'm told the aroma inside the house was beyond belief. At any rate, given that Webley had to compete for food I can understand her hyper vigilant, always wary kinda attitude - she follows me around like a puppy. :)

Use the toilet, it will self agitate, and you have a power rinse option. Just stand very clear when you open the lid :lurk:
