Hadith - Muslim, Narrated 'Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin

Dawud ibn Salih ibn Dinar at-Tammar quoted his mother as saying that her mistress sent her with some pudding (harisah) to Aisha who was offering prayer. She made a sign to me to place it down. A cat came and ate some of it, but when Aisha finished her prayer, she ate from the place where the cat had eaten. She stated: The Messenger of Allah said: It is not unclean: it is one of those who go round among you. She added: I saw the Messenger of Allah performing ablution from the water left over by the cat.

Allah's Apostle said, "A lady was punished because of a cat which she had imprisoned till it died. She entered the (Hell) Fire because of it, for she neither gave it food nor water as she had imprisoned it, nor set it free to eat from the vermin of the earth."

When I was younger, I used to have a cat that was older then me. He was part of the family and for some reason we'd named him Yunus. He was brown and ginger and looked almost the size of a small dog. He had wise eyes and an expression of understanding. In his old age he got some kind of an illness and fur started to fall off in clumps, leaving bold patches on his body.
On the day we were going to take him to the vets, we couldn't find him anywhere. we looked high and low, but he was nowhere to be seen.
And we haven't seen him since........it's been 15 years.

some one told us that he probabley knew he was going to die and didn't want us to feel pain from the loss, so he took himself somewhere we wouldn't find him, and laid to rest there....

I've had so many cats after Yunus. but I still think about him and miss him...

I don't think the Saudi thing is about banning animals, but rather the idea of having animals in a shop for sale is what is being banned. Animals are free, not to be owned, I guess thats what their plot is. I don't really blame them for that or think they're crazy for it.

The cats of Makkah and Madeenah really are cute though. The poor things though, they seem so scared because of all the people there.

We had one called shadow.. he was only 4 weeks old when we got him so he was proper small, he couldn't even jump on the bed. After about two years we gave him to a woman who was a vet and she's got other pets too so alhamdulillah it's good.


Some scholars say its haraam to sell cats:


The view that it is haraam to sell cats is the more correct view, because it is proven that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade that, and there is nothing to suggest the contrary.
Muslim (1569) narrated that Abu’l-Zubayr said: I asked Jaabir about theprice of dogs and cats. He said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) told us not to do that (i.e., sell them)

Actually you can get diseases from any animal except maybe not from goldfish.

I'm an animal lover and long was a conservationist while I had my own property. My dream was to turn the place into a wild life reuge, but that never came about. Perhaps one day some new owner will be able to.

I really enjoyed all of the wild critters that roamed my place. the oddest experience was I came across a new born fawn and the darn thing mistook me for it's mother and followed me home. I had the hardest time reuniting it with it's mother. It was scared of her. But, after it got good and hungry it decided she was nice to have around.


At one time I raised dogs but gave them up when I reverted to Islam.

Throughout my life I have had many cats. The 2 strangest ones were 2 feral kittens I had found in the woods when I was a kid and brought home. They got huge over 30 pounds each and did get quite vicious. I still have scars on my arms and legs from times they got a little irritable. When they were about 5 years old they reverted back to the woods on their own.

We got it for free, and we gave it away for free.. might aswell do that because usually cats and dogs aren't classed as animals which we need for work. Compared to horses, cows etc which people do need for work. Allaahu a'lam.

i like those cats with the big ears!!!
i've almost always had a dog until recently.
the man next door used to feed this stray cat. after he died, she started coming over here, and then she brought a male friend and i'm feeding them (even tho i knew better) cuz i felt sorry for them.
no doubt the female is pregnant! it is so hard to find homes for kittens - can't image what i'll do if she shows up with a family.
she was a little shy at first but has gotten quite a bit better.
he was very shy but now he isn't shy at all - in fact, he's a bit pushy.
left the door open by mistake and he just came walking in and made himself at home.
while the door was open, an oppossum sneaked in (this was 2 days ago) and now it's in the house and i have no idea how to get rid of it. it's very cute - if i could tame it, i'd probably be dumb enough to make a pet out of it too!
about my other pets, well......some of you already know and the rest probably don't wanna know!
i love animals - they're so much nicer than people!

I have 3 kittens! Well i started out with one. This lady whom my dad works with gave it to us, then she gave us 2 more! She gave it for free. Soo cute!
The lady is a crackhead and she still has a fourth one. When she gave us the other 3, they were so skinny and smelled like cigarettes!
So we gave them a bath. She fed them like every 6 hours! The day we got them, we fed them and they were really hungry. When they get old enuff to be on their own, we're going to set them free :)

I have a cat but it spends all her life outside catching birds, mice etc. I've had it since I was a baby. It constantly scrounges for food even after being fed....
For some reason though she refuses to step inside the house and if we do manage to tempt her into the house and close the door she howls. Perhaps we have an evil spirit within our home :muddlehea :playing:

ok since kitty you love animal and have experience, I think you would be the best person to talk to. I was wondering what kind of Parrot you got? I have a Rare Parakeet. I have trained him to sit on my hand and take bath on in his bath tub. But the thing is lately he's shedding too much feathers, I don't understand why and just getting kindda worried he's getting too small as he sheds. Any suggestions what to do? or is that normal for him to shed????
Thanks

My daughter raise cokatiels and she has had many other birds. She had been a wildlife Rehabilitator and the Department of parks would bring her sick and injured birds to nurse back to health and be released into the wild. I just asked her what might be the problem. These are her Answers.

She doubts if it is normal molting as when birds molt they normaly loose only a few feathers at a time. the 2 most likely problems she suspects are mites or stress. Birds get stressed easily some things that will stress them is strangers in the house, change of environment, noises, etc. for both mites and stress a vet is your best choice.

I shouldn't encourage you. Oppossums tame very easily. Just do not let them intimidate you with their hissing noise and showing off their teeth when they get scared. The little gluttons love most fruits in the south they are persimmon theives. However I did find they will follow you anyplace for a banana. Only worry with them is all wild critters have a risk of rabies. the further north you live the lower that risk is. Also oppossums can grow fairly large and they can get some nasty eating habits and to put it bluntly .....stink

But she could call a vet to give him a medicine, exactly like to dogs. And if he entered in the house it means he wants to spend the winter there because may be in his own house was too cold. Its not nice to throw him out during the winter.

I assume you are talking about the cockatiels. They are seldom in a cage, they have the run of the house and think they own us.
Also they are not native to the US and would not survive. These have been domesticated for many generations. The cockatiels are hand raised and are even more domesticated then most pets. She has 4 of them 2 pairs and she usualy raises 3 or 4 chicks each year which she gives to friends. Both pairs are nearly past their egg laying ages and for one pair this will be their last year. The other pair will stop laying next year.

The other birds I was talking about were injured wild birds that the park service brought to her to nurse back to health and then release them in the wild. It is illegal in Texas to keep any wild bird, or even posses a feather of a wild bird with the exception of game birds like Quail and ducks, unless you are a licensed rehabilitationist.

i had Parakeets before I got cats. I had 11 actually and so smart! They broke one of the bars, so it made it easier for them to get out and start flying around! It basically gave me exercise running after em ;D lol. One almost got eaten by a cat, she died later on, right in front of me :(. One died and i still dont understand how. One had a neck problem, she had her head tiltled to the side. So she was able to see jus one side. She also died :( Found her dead when i got back home from school. Some flew away =\. Dont ask how! I dont know. So then we gave the rest away :( One of my birds eggs hatched out of like 8 lol! The other female bird killed it :( I knew she would try too, so id always sit there and watch her. My mom got annoyed and told me to go play outside or something. I come back and the baby bird is dying =\. Its was about 8 days old i think. I think i still have pictures, but only the first two i got.

Please do it:) I would like to see them
Its on my laptop. The wireless internet isnt working and the pictures are on a small card. Laptop doesnt have a floppy drive so i can transfer it =\ So ill try to get it soon.

possum report:
i had left the door open all day yesterday and when i looked for him last night he was no where to be found, so i thought he'd left. much to my surprise he was still here this morning because he had torn up the floor by the door trying to get out in the night. so i moved everything out of there and there he was all curled up sound asleep in a bag of rags. i carried the bag and him outside and offered him the banana but he just grazed it before he ran away. i would say he was a teenage possum. so cute! maybe i'll start to leave little goodies out there for him - not anything cats would eat tho, or it will be gone!
i'm glad it was an oppossum and not a skunk (they're all around here too).
btw, when i lived in oklahoma for awhile, i learned that some people eat possums - squirrels too!

Sis Snakelegs i didn't know they are carring the babies on their back. Its a modern way to travel ;) I found this one too - which is kind of fat what it means he knows a place where is foooooddd:



Bro Woodrow Tookitookums is smart and you got an always good moody partner to play scrabble. I can't play with my tortoises imsad

I like koalas, with their big ears, fluffly fur, they are cute. But their life is harsh, in Australia are many fires, especially during the winter - in december - and they are the most helpless creature from the wood. I saw few of them, rescued by people. Its really :(.
Here it looks better with a toy with his white belly :)

Looking at the right koala i just rem to ask: How are you all dealing with the pets feeding? You are not tempted to give them too much food which make them to become fat? After doctors is not good if the pet is fat.

The obese cats
Part 1 Effects of obesity
Obese cats, like obese humans, are generally less healthy and have shorter life expectancies. There will always be exceptions, but it is not safe to assume that your cat is the exception. The detrimental affects of obesity include:
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes mellitus (sugar diabetes), specifically late onset diabetes.
  • Hepatic lipidosis (a type of liver disease)
  • Lameness due to arthritis (joints wear out due to carrying too much weight)
  • Cystitis (lower urinary tract disease).

According to another report: ". . . unless it is a dog for herding sheep, farming or hunting." (Reported by al-Bukhaari, al-Fath, 2322)

Dogs are extremely naajis (impure, unclean). The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "If a dog drinks from the vessel of any one of you, let him wash it seven times" (reported by Muslim, no. 279). According to another report: ". . . and clean it the eighth time with earth." (Saheeh Muslim, no. 280).

It is forbidden in Islaam to sell a dog and to receive payment for it, as is reported in Saheeh al-Bukhaari from Abu Mas’oud al-Ansaari: the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade (accepting) the price of a dog. (al-Fath, no. 2237)

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) told us not to resemble dogs by placing our forearms on the ground during sujood (prostration), as in reported in the hadeeth narrated by Anas ibn Maalik, according to which the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "Do sujood properly; none of you should spread his forearms like a dog does." (al-Bukhaari, Fath, no. 822).

Whoever keeps a dog in his house is denied the blessing of the angels’ presence in his house, as the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "The angels do not enter a house in which there is a dog." (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 3225).

Keeping dogs nowadays is the habit of the kuffaar, who adopt them as friends, kiss them, let them lick them and their clothes, sleep with them and even leave them money in their wills. Keeping a dog is an imitation of the kuffaar. Some Muslims may claim that they need to keep a dog at home for purposes of protection, to which we respond that nowadays there are burglar alarm systems and other measures one may take for security purposes, and there is no need to keep a dog, praise be to Allaah.

It only remains for us to say that the fact that it is forbidden to keep a dog and interect closely with it does not mean that we should not be kind or feel compassion towards dogs if we see them in a pitiful state. These are two entirely separate matters. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) told us that "a man saw a dog biting the dust because of thirst, so he took his shoe and started to scoop water up with it until the dog’s thirst was quenched. Allaah appreciated his good deed and granted him entry to Paradise for it." (Reported by al-Bukhaari, no. 174).

According to another report, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "Whilst a man was walking he became very thirsty, so he went down to a well and drank from it. When he came out, he saw a dog panting and biting the soil because of thirst. The man said, ‘He is suffering the same as I suffered,’ so he filled his shoe (with water), came out and let the dog drink until his thirst was quenched. Allaah appreciated his good deed and forgave him because of it." The people asked, "O Messenger of Allaah, will we be rewarded for how we treat animals?" He said, "In every living thing there is a reward." (Reported by al-Bukhaari, Fath, no. 2363).

We do not want to omit reminding you of the importance of reading the Qur’aan properly and referring to it. You say in your question that the story of the thirsty dog is in the Qur’aan, and that is not the case, as it is reported in the Sunnah.

And Allaah knows best

fishman is an expert on fish (i think-after all, why else is he "fishman"?)
i have a beta fish and 2 goldfish. in the u.s. you can buy "feeder goldfish" - cheap and meant to be fed to other fish or other animals. i buy them for my frog once in awhile. the 2 i've kept are ones the frog rejected. (once he rejects a fish i don't subject the fish to that trauma again and keep them as pets. usually, they don't live too long. anyway, one goldfish i've had for almost 4 years now - he's at least 3 inches long and his name is goldberg.
the other one i've had for about 2 years - they live together- i call the other one sidekick.
i enjoy them very much.

On the day we were going to take him to the vets, we couldn't find him anywhere. we looked high and low, but he was nowhere to be seen.
And we haven't seen him since........it's been 15 years.

some one told us that he probabley knew he was going to die and didn't want us to feel pain from the loss, so he took himself somewhere we wouldn't find him, and laid to rest there....

I've had so many cats after Yunus. but I still think about him and miss him...
:sl:

Quite a moving story, mashallah. Although I think I may know what might have happened...

I heard one story of a toddler climbing on to the window of a high rise block. Their cat noticed and climbed on to the window and began pawing at the toddler, even scratching him? Not sure, anyway the toddler began crying and alerted other family members who came and found the baby on the window!

The baby also crawled outside to the stairs and again the cat followed and began pawing at him, making the baby cry and alerting family members.

We might be getting another kitten next week. My friends cat had kittens 7 weeks ago and they will be ready to go next week. They are adorable little things. The mother had 5 kittens but one of them had a cleft lip/pallet and died after 5 days. My friend was wonderful as the little thing couldnt feed from his mother and she hand reared it with a pipette every hour day and night. Poor little thing died of pneumonia in the end due to aspirating milk.

The art of naming your pet
Veterinary Pet Insurance offers the following tips for choosing
the most appropriate name for your new cat:
  • One-syllable names, like Max and Sam, make learning and recognition easier for your pet. Two-syllable names also work well because animals listen for the first syllable sound.
  • Be aware of choosing names (such as Joe, Neil) that are similar to voice commands used for obedience: no, sit, come, heel, down, talk,etc.
  • Choose a name that is easy to call out and won't embarrass you (as you shout it through your neighborhood at 7 a.m.); consider choosing Happy over Stinky.
  • Don't give your pets and your children similar names or neither will know who you're calling.
  • Consider choosing a name based on breed lineage.
  • Plan for growth -- a puppy will no longer be a puppy after a year, so consider that Tiny may not be the best choice for larger breeds.

A survey of VPI's 300,000-plus policyholders showed that Bailey, Buddy, Molly, Maggie, Lucy, Jake, Daisy, Rocky and Sadie rounded out the top ten rankings for 2004.

Well I got 2 cats of my own. They were both street cats that seemed to have lost their mother. The first I found while getting back from work. It was just lying there in the heat and had ants all over it eating it alive. I thought it was dead but when I looked closely its eyes were open and it was just staring at me without moving. It was thin to the bone and was too weak to do anything. I went back to the office to get a box, put it in and took it to a vet. He cleaned it up, gave it a few injections and some food. It was still sick so I took it to another vet and left it there for a week in 24/7 care. It is nice and healthy now :)
Surprisingly enough only 1 day after I found the first cat, I saw another one at about 3am in my compound just sitting on a pavement meowing. Probably looking for its mother. I couldn’t resist and took that in too.
They are both happy and healthy now and cute as hell ;)

That is exactly like the kitten we are getting!! Saba is a nice name. Our other cat is called Max. The bit about chosing a name that you wont be embarressed calling out is quite funny actually as Max is affectionately known as Fleabag from time to time! He even comes when you shout it now!

that's funny - i call the male "scabbers" because he has quite a few battle scars. i agree - cats adopt you, not the other way around. i let them in the house once in a great while, but not for long. last time the one that i think is female (her fur is so long, i can't be sure - also, she is still pretty timid.
how come you were so lucky - fed a cat and he didn't blab it all over catdom?

yeah, i think they must find out these things from watching Cat News.
i really am worried about kittens - i have no idea what i would do with them - it's very hard to find homes for kittens. but so far, she doesn't look like she's getting fat. i certainly can't keep them all.
there is some chance that the long haired one is not a female (i hope). but if they are both males, i would think they would fight.
tiger cats are my favourites, next would be black cats.
these are neither. they certainly are characters!

I dont know! Maybe he knows he is onto a good thing and doesnt want to share LOL! He just turns up everyday for his food then off he goes again. Wont come in the house, no matter how bad the weather is. A true stray I reckon. He is covered in battle scars too, thats why we call him Scabbycat. He looks quite old too.

The first one looks very skinny and i doubt too it would have survived on the streets or if you would have take him at home. Without that week spent at doctor probably would have died. Even the tail looks like a stick :(
Now it looks much better, calm and i think he will always remain the quiet one which will love you. :)
The second cat has a great potential for mistchiefs. You will never become his boss and i think he will know exactly how to take the maximum benefits from being your cat. :)
But they look like brothers, same spots only the colours are different.Which make me to think may be you have some neglecting neighbour in your way which throws the kittens on the streets :rant:

The kitten pic its an maui bengal breed (due to his spots was named by some the leopard cat) which has the following features:
  • Breed Classification:Exotic
  • Origins: Bengal Cats were developed by breeding the Asian Leopard Cat with the Domestic Cat (India)
  • Litter Size: 5
  • Life Span: 10-15 Years
  • Personality: Bengals may appear to be more like a dog than a cat. Some will retrieve and they all like to play cat and mouse games. Bengals love to climb and play in water. They never grow up.
  • Grooming Requirements: Weekly brushing to control shedding.
  • Social skills: Bengals get along very well with other animals if at least 4 generations removed from the wild.
  • Good with Children: If children taught to play appropriately with cats
  • Energy Level: Owning a Bengal is like having a perpetual kitten.
  • Noisiness: A Bengal's voice may sound like something from the wild.
  • Health: These are very healthy cats, yet they suffer from entropion which is an inward rolling of the eyelid which requires surgery.
  • Shedding: Medium
  • Cause Allergies: None

If it was cancer its better if she died without to suffer too much. My dog died because of cancer and she was diagnosed in the same matter. The doctor pushed with the hands her belly and said tumuor. He felt it. I followed the classical removing surgery , after which i found out, around 2 weeks later, its belign tumour which it means will spread again .Exactly that happened. imsad The animals are not spared by the human diseases imsad

The day meal of the cat its a mouse. You can imagine now how much should eat Grey, right:? The fact his head is in that pot doesn't look to well. :-[ She seems already to sleepy so you need to find extra activities for her, like toys, let her out from house for much longer time.

I didn't say to give him mouses to eat. I said that only for you: to can imagine how much should he eat each day - around 60 gr. I don't dare to ask the pot weight but it seems to be 1/2 kg. You have to give him less food. Definetly not mouses or your hamsters. Because its a him you should allow to find a girlfriend. Let him out from the house. That would be a nice walk to go from one neighbour to another.

Where is Merah picture:? Why are they not playing together:? Have you tried to buy them toys:?

And don't forget to buy them canned food , not dry food. The dry food its dangerous for cats.

All About Weaning Kittens

When should the kitten to be separated by his mother:?
The best time to separate a kitten from its mother is between
seven and eight weeks of age. :)
Why:?
  1. It is at this point that weaning
    has been completed (the switch from nursing mother's milk to
    eating solid food) and a kitten can best adjust to living in a
    strange home with a new family. If taken away too early, kittens
    may have to be bottle-fed by their new families and frequently
    behave badly due to premature departure from the nest.
  2. Kittens who are separated from their mother when older than seven
    or eight weeks will have a harder time accepting the new family,
    as they have become accustomed to their mother and siblings.

What should we do:?
In order to make this transition easy for the kittens, you should
start introducing kitten food early on. At about four weeks of
age start mixing a good quality kitten food with milk or water,
and soak it until it resembles oatmeal. Place the food in a
shallow bowl and stimulate the kittens to eat it by placing a bit
of the food in their mouths. Once the kittens are eating well out
of the bowl it is safe to stop the nursing with the queen.

Please read the article:

The Obese Cats
Part II The dangers of the dry food !!
An increasing number of American Veterinary Medical Association members, including board-certified veterinary nutritionists, are now strongly recommending the feeding of canned food instead of dry kibble.

The three key negative issues associated with dry food are:

1) type of protein - too high in plant-based versus animal-based proteins
The cats are carnivores - It means that your cat was built by Mother Nature to get her nutritional needs met by the consumption of a large amount of animal-based proteins (meat) and derives much less nutritional support from plant-based proteins (grains). It means that cats lack specific metabolic (enzymatic) pathways and cannot utilize plant proteins as efficiently as animal proteins. The protein in dry food, which is often heavily plant-based, is not equal in quality to the protein in canned food, which is meat-based.
2) carbohydrate load is too high
Cats have no dietary need for carbohydrates and, more worrisome is the act that too many carbohydrates can be highly detrimental to their health. The dry food because its based practically on grains (plants) has a high lever of carbohydrates - "35-50 percent carbohydrates. Some of the cheaper dry foods contain even higher levels. "
3) water content is too low
Another extremely important nutrient with respect to overall health is water. It is very important for a cat to ingest water with its food, as the cat does not have a very strong thirst drive. This is a critical point. This lack of a strong thirst drive leads to low-level, chronic dehydration when dry food makes up the bulk of their diet.
Cats are designed to obtain most of their water with their diet since their normal prey contains approximately 75 percent water. Dry foods only contain 10 percent water


Conclusion:
  • The cats will never eat grains - you will never see cats running after a pack of biscuits , they chase only meat!
  • The dry food is based on grains for which the cats has no proper liver to can digest it!
  • The cats obtain their water from the prey - and the dry food has a low contain of water!

it's not good to give left over to cats or any animal because if you think about it there animals && they want there own food && it's best if you give them cat food && milk because at times you might give them chicken && chicken is not very healthy for them because it's kinda greasy (anywho me never eat that) && also if you do give them chicken give them roasted chicken with less fat no grease in && no chilles in && not much oil also remember to feed them boil water every moring but NOT i repeat NOT boil as in VERY VERY warm medium also warm thy milk.
i can never let anyone feed my pets at all because all night i will never get to sleep :uhwhat thats how much i love them :wub:

Yes, i can keep at the moment pets which don't need too much attention/day like 2 tortoises and 4 snails:) The snails are living in aqvarium and the tortoises are most time walking in the room. They spend some time in their own aqvarium too:) I will post pics with them :)

I would like only to quote the answer given by specialists in cat diet which confirm Jodie recomandation:

  1. Some human foods are toxic to cats, even in small amounts, such as onions or chocolate.
  2. Most human food is either too highly spiced, or too fat-laced to be good for cats. Even though the food may smell appealing, tummy aches or vomiting might be the end result.
  3. A cat regularly fed human food will either lose his taste for his own food, or be too full to eat it. Either way, he will lose the essential nutrients, including taurine, so necessary for cats to survive and thrive.
  4. Allowing cats to eat "at the table" is creating your own home-grown monster. You may find your guests appalled at having a cat at the table, and your cat will be miffed at being banished.

i can never let anyone feed my pets at all because all night i will never get to sleep :uhwhat thats how much i love them :wub:

Thats what I give him, if we have some chicken, just plain chicken, then he has what is left.

His name is TOM he's very sensitive. i always count my cats because one of my cat got run over :cry: && that cat was given on my first ever birthday from my mam && that was a memroy since my mam has left her soul imsad , every animal is like as if there with me thats how much i love them && i love ALL animals but my best animal is cats since i was 1 i had my first cat && now me still love cats got 1 kitten whom is mashallah very cute && have 5 cats i have got pics of them on my cell inshallah i will try my best to put them up in my free time if i have any free time inshallah i will try.

I hope i'm not the person who Broke the rules as a cat lover Brother:p ,but Alhamdulillah i enjoy this sense of feeling to love and protect this agile creatures.

Same here most of the boys like to playing kittens with their own rough styles,yes the girls will serve them better, more as a living Barbie doll or a chatting friend:giggling: ,even they put on some decorations like the flower and necklace to them.

Me too cannot stand to see some adults whose enjoyed their power over this creatures,i have saw it many times.Then we should give this words to them Why not you enjoy it(your power)with the tiger its sad when you have to said that to the normal adult persons and some of them are friends.

Greats..5 kittys :thumbs_up.Sorry for your lost ukthi,as part of nature we all going to lost somethingimsad.I grab this words Patah tumbuh hilang berganti is a Malay proverb that describes the cycle of life; a broken branch will grow back.

I guess the Animal Instinct will drive and motivate some domestic pets some how turns them to the original wild character form that carried in their genetic blood code when in danger,hunger or in desperate situation.And or maybe because the chicks looking like walking birds to them.I also doubt if Merah would be able to catch the adult chickens.

the continuing saga of the (now) 3 cats that have chosen me as their servant and provider.
sometimes i have them come in the house for a little while. 2 of them have already jumped right up on the kitchen table twice, which i don't find endearing at all.
my impression is that cats own people and train people, and not the other way around. is it possible to train a cat not to jump up on things - and how do you do it?

Assalmualikum,
you can get them trained by yourself take your cats in a big field or maybe in a par where there is a field && start practising you cat by laying some things on floor && put some cat food all the way to the end && tell it to go around it instead of jumping do something like that, do it daily inshallah

thanks kittygyal, but this sounds like Major Work.
i think i will just have to make their visits indoors rare and brief. but first i'll try making a noise when one of them jumps up on something and see if it will scare him enough so that he won't do it again. (like maybe clap my hands loud or something).

I found this recomandations:
  1. Since cats hate to be surprised, you can use waterbottles, clapping, hissing, and other sudden noises (such as snapping, "No!") to stop unwanted behavior. However, be aware that these tactics will not work when you are not present. In addition, immediacy is key: even seconds late may render it ineffective. You must do it as soon as the cat starts the behavior.
  2. The face-push has been described by various readers. This consists of pushing the palm of your hand into the cat's face. This is best used when discouraging something like biting. Don't hit the cat, simply push its face back gently. You might accompany it with a "no!"
  3. Making certain behaviors impossible is another tactic. Think "childproofing": keep food in containers; keep breakable and/or dangerous objects out of reach; make sure heavy objects, e.g. bookshelves, are stable. Look for childproofing gadgets and hints and think how you can apply them to preventing cat problems. Even when the analogy isn't perfect, physically preventing problems is still a good guide. E.g., defrosting meat? Put it in the (unheated) stove, not out on the counter.


Source: click here
I read also about a can in which you put some coins and shake it when the cats climb on the table. The noise will make them to run.Someone tried with orange and lemon peels and the cats can't stand their smell - but i found this information only in 1 site.

Another method would be to use the cookie sheets filled with water - but thats only if the cat would have free access in the house. For a small visit i don't think its the case.



Don't forget the cats like to climb but in the kitchen they might get tempted by the food. So hide the food from the table, don't leave there because they come to you exactly for food :)

Greetings Tania.
Yes, they normally go for food it's best to move the food right away from them cover the food with either some material or store in fridge, you should always take it easy at first with your pets be harsh to hem at first then slowy slowy they will understand && get trained, i noramlly give them a treat if they behave so they know now how to control their self's but at times it can become hectic. Making noises for cats/kittens is thy best thing mine have a wistle on there lead so when i blow my wistle to them they come staright away home.

From the sites i understood its much better if the cat hear the noise but not from you. They should always avoid to sit on the table, not only when you are in the kitchen.Thats why recommend the cooking sheets filled with water, or the pot with coins.
I hope you will succedd to make a certain order in your catdom:) And they always are learning faster when they are rewarded:)

Yes,i agree with you the cats/kittens must not see your making the noises because then they will tend to play up && then not participate as good. Also no animals should sit on dinning tables whatso ever.

thanks for your advice. will see how it goes. if they won't learn to be polite on their visits, they'll have to stay outside all the time.
they really are cute - even tho they're somewhat of a nuisance (getting in and out the door is quite a challenge with 3 cats all trying to barge in), they really are quite cute and have very distinct personalities - even all their voices sound different.
i hope they don't tell any more of their friends about this restaurant!

He is very small, stripey, with spots on his belly. He has the loudest meow I have ever heard and he is just 9 weeks old! He is currently curled up fast asleep on my knee as I type! I will try and take a picture tommorow and post it up here.

He still doesnt have a name yet though!

i didn't invite these 3 cats! they showed up and were hungry so i have been feeding them. i invite them in for visits but they can not live inside as i have all kinds of other critters all over the house in various cages and cages on top of cages and it could be one huge mess.
i love animals too, but have never had cats because usually i have a dog and i will probably get another one eventually. (my dog died several months ago).

He still doesnt have a name yet though!

Congratulation for the new family member :) His picture will inspire us to choose the perfect name for him.

I don't remember exactly where i heard the genetic mutations(like two heads, less fingers, 3 arms) which appears at animals, like at humans too are because of the radiations and pollution. The tortoises parents must live in some polluted pond imsad

As I understand it mutations occur naturally, absent any radiation, but radiation can cause further mutation. The vast majority of mutations are harmful and even lethal. But a few are beneficial. This is how evolution takes place (which you can see for yourself in bacteria cultures).

They are very very cute :) The first one looks so very distinguished. He sits with the same attitude like Kitty's cat.:) Its good to keep 3 kittens because they will have with whom to play.The last one have sooo big paws. :) The doc always says to give more attention to the smaller cat because during the meals the brothers could push him away from food.
Tayyaba you are so lucky.

Weird Animal Facts these facts are very weird and shocking indeed:D
this is the facts that many of us never know about it.Here some of them...

Cows poop on average 16 times a day.:uuh:

The world's smallest dog -- the Teacup Chihuahua -- weighs less than a pound when fully grown.ermm... ok

Scientists have actually performed brain surgery on cockroaches.:uuh: :uuh:

There is a sea squirt (found in the seas near Japan) that digests its own brain. When the sea squirt is mature it permanently attaches itself to a rock. At this point it does not need to move anymore and has no need for a brain.:uuh: :uuh: :uuh:

A snail's reproductive organs are in its head.:muddlehea

Southern Indian drug addicts get high by having venomous snakes bite their tongues. This can give addicts a 16 hour high, but can be very deadly.:confused:

A species of earthworm, "Megascolides australis," in Australia can grow up to fifteen feet in length.:playing:

This breed requires expert veterinary attention in areas such as birthing and dental care. Chihuahuas are also prone to some genetic anomalies, often neurological ones, such as epilepsy and seizure disorders.

Chihuahuas, and other toy breeds, are also prone to the sometimes painful condition known as patella luxation and collapsing trachea.

Another genetic abnormality in Chihuahuas and toy breeds is hydrocephalus, or water on the brain. This condition surfaces in young puppies and often results in the death of a puppy by the time that it reaches six months of age
After i reads this,truly the Chihuahua dog are indeeds a genetic failure results,even it is uneasy to type their breeds name:heated:

Cats maintenance :)
Part 1 Grooming the cat

Grooming ensure the minimum hygene required by the feline friend. Regular brushing results in many positive health benefits including:

  1. removes dead hair and skin,
  2. stimulates growth of new hair and blood circulation,
  3. makes the coat glossy and clean,
  4. prevents and removes mats,
  5. reduces hairballs forming inside the cat and the subsequent vomiting. Hairballs can become serious heath issues if they become impacted in the intestine.
STEPS
  1. For the first grooming session, use a soft-bristled brush. Call your cat in a cheery tone and reward him with a small treat. Start at the tip of the fur and gently work deeper into his coat to prevent the brush from getting trapped in tangles or clumps.
  2. At certain times of the year when cats are shedding more, add extra brushing time into the grooming schedule.
  3. Always brush in the direction of your cat’s coat. Going against the grain can irritate her skin and make her want to flee the scene when she sees you pulling out the grooming supplies.
  4. To make cleanup easy, slip a piece of old pantyhose over the head of a brush before grooming. The bristles will poke through, an all you have to do is pull up on the pantyhose to discard the hair.
  5. Keep brushes in various places in your house. That way, your cat can be treated to a spur-of-the-moment grooming without your having to hunt for a brush.
  6. Brush or comb your cat during a quiet time in the house. This should be a relaxing experience.
  7. Use two-sided tape to attach plastic self-grooming combs along the lower corner of wall. These products permit your pet to rub against the plastic bristles and get a grooming any time she desires.
  8. Some cats will not tolerate certain areas of their body to be brushed, for example the belly, head or base of tail. You will find out quick enough which are the "no go zones".
  9. Choose the right brush.
    Cats with a very close coat such as Burmese, Siamese, cornish rex and ocicats benefit from a “Grooming Glove.” This is a glove equipped with fine rubberized nubs over the palm. Other tools that work well with close-coated breeds are a soft chamois rubbed gently over the coat, and a soft rubber brush like “Zoom Groom Soft Bristles.”

    One of the best brushes to remove hair from medium-coated cats like American shorthairs, Scottish folds, and British shorthairs is a round boar's hair bristle brush. This brush can get to the dead hair without irritating the cat's skin.

    For longhaired cats, a comb is a must-have tool. The best type of comb is a “Greyhound Style Comb,” which is hand-polished steel. “Peak” combs are comparable to the Belgian-made greyhound combs. The best size to have is a 7 1/2-inch long comb with 1 1/8-inch teeth. Half of the comb should be coarse and half should have fine teeth. Pin brushes are also good as grooming tools as they separate the hair, are gentle on sensitive skin and remove snarls.

    A handled flea comb works well to groom the face of a cat no matter what the length of the coat.

Well Max is only a year old himself. He's been rather laid back of late but since Jack arrived he has been much more playfull again. The pair of them charge round the house like a whirlwind! They are really getting on well. Occasionally Max gets a bit fed up with being stalked by the little one and he will give him a gentle swipe, very gentle actually, Max is a very gentle cat.

Its great they can play. Wait until Jack will discover Max tail or something to chew or scratch on him. The fact he is gentle will give a little nose to Jack. It was a good decision to keep at least two cats. They will can do much more than alone. :thumbs_up

He has already found Max's tail! Max teases him with it, he will sit on a chair with his tail dangling down while Jack is underneath trying to bat it, then Max will jump down and swipe jack.

I thought at that. The kittens are always attracted by other cats. They are like big toys for them. and protectors too.When something is not going quite well , they always hide behind the older cat, its like he says: i did nothing, do something to protect me.:)
