I can't have have more than one, my GF don't want and also my 60mΒ² apartment is probably too small to have more than one cat full time :ablobcatheartbroken:

Oh man I feel this pic. We have 3 inside and at one time 14 outside colony cats that required 2 full days of rounding them up and getting them to the vet for their 4 in 1 and rabies vaccines. Good on you for taking care of your babies.

@pixelpusher220 🀣 Oh yes, my wife stayed in the car while I was doing the way and back inside the vet office with the cages, she couldn't even manage to do a phone call because of the choir.

Epic indeed! They are all perfect, and my heart goes out to the one who pooped in her carrier. :blobheartcat:

@Bookherd Thanks for her! Tigrette is a sweetie, the kind of cat who can't resist to sleep on any available legs in the house. Very social, always around.

It's not the first time she pooped her cage, we anticipated that this time with a special towel. Here is a photo of her, not in the cage with Noutti, my inspiration for Carrot on my comic : davidrevoy.com/data/images/blo

(edit: she always has this expression of an old samurai wanting to kill everyone, but she is really sweet 😺 ).

@davidrevoy@framapiaf.org as a vet tech im so happy to see kennels that open from the top for cats!!! they are so helpful for us you have no idea

β˜…

link David Revoy Author, - Reply
davidrevoy

@sentinian Oh yes, that's why after I bought the first one, I continued with the same model for the #3 and #4. They are incredibly easy to clean and easier to monitor the cat from the top once driving. Good to know they are also good for vets.
It's also great in the waiting room when the cage is on the floor to keep a visual contact with the cat from the top anytime.

Our household also has a giant super talkative cat.

The adoption center called him "the one with the meow". His more recent annoying habit is he's discovered a taste for oil.

That's way more organized than my approach of just jumbling them all together. :blobcatsurprised:​

For my recent cross-country move I split seven cats between two pop-up kennels. (See toot.cat/@yudderick/1119841252 )

I haven't taken all of them to the vet together since they were kittens, but my last big vet visit involved five of them, which I split up with two each in larger carriers and one in a small carrier.

@yudderick 😍 Wow! Beautiful! And you are lucky they accept to share a bag together. Here only Noutti and Miolek are compatible and can sleep next each other but I wouldn't try to put them on a same bag 😺 .

The article says you had two cats to welcome Miolek. So Geuloush is the newest one? I did not see his arrival. How is his name pronounced? Gh or jj ? (you seem to only have tabbies, it's so cute)(I'm babbling, please stop me)

link David Revoy Author, - Reply
davidrevoy

@lamecarlate That's right, Geuloush is a very recent one, you can read here when we adopted him and his story framapiaf.org/@davidrevoy/1111 , but I should transform that in a proper blog post as I did for Miolek to not forget about those details later πŸ˜…
It's pronunced Gh , as 'Gueuler' in french (to yell). He was yelling really loud the first week we met him, poor hungry abandoned thing. We call him now Vampirek, or Petit-Pirek, ou Chouquette, things that match better his temper now we know him.

@davidrevoy@framapiaf.org Two old cats and two young ones ?

link David Revoy Author, - Reply
davidrevoy

@eragon Yes. Totally different generations and habits. I'm super happy Noutti taught Miolek when he was a kitten everything about how to play and fight while he was still less than 10 y/o. Like a Jedi and Padawan, he did a good work (and probably wouldn't be able to do it now because he aged a lot and now look for calm and don't manage territory anymore). Now Miolek is double size of all the cats in the neighborhood and defends all family cats against other external cats and wild animal. πŸ™‚

@yon Thank you! The drawings are all drawn digitally with a screen tablet over the photo. But I often draw my cats like that on post-it notes and put them on the fridge to share stories to my wife.

We had four cats once and one of them turned absolutely demonic at vet visits. So they offered to do home visits for us. And even gave us the "litter rate"!!!! Demon kitty, however, and despite sedatives, was still a demon kitty at home, so they recommended she never see a vet unless she was clearly dying because the acute stress outweighed any benefit.
(This was long ago. RIP Killer, Canton, Valatie, and Rowley. I still miss them 😿)(Killer was demon kitty, weighing in at 6 pounds.)

The English word for a group of cats in carriers should be 'a murder' -> 'A murder of cats'.

But that words is already used, for crows.
