Flip, about the 4 cat thing...  Years ago, before my son was born, my mother-in-law was living with us for about 6 months.  During that period of time we had 5 cats and three dogs altogether.  That was a crazy time.  I had four cats until the spring when we lost one to a pack of hunting dogs.  Then my oldest cat died last month.  I miss them both, but I don't think we will get anymore cats for a while.

I cannot figure out what's happening with our cat Woody (the name is funny - ironic too) because he's acting kind of kooky lately. He grabs a stuffed animal from Jenna's bedroom upstairs, sometimes it's a tiger, sometimes it's the rhinoceros that Kitkatz brought her, it varies. You'll hear him making this weird howling sound, and there he is, at the foot of the stairs, how shall I say ... mating with the plushy! This started a few months ago. Our son Johnny says he's going to film him and put it on youtube! Woody is 12 years old and he's been neutered since he was a couple of months old, so where is this frisky behavior coming from?

X-Rated.
Our tortoises mate too. That gets the neighbor kids staring and giggling. The shells banging together and the grunting is hysterical. I have seen similar or youtube.
Haven't seen cats and plushys, but haven't searched yet either!

Okarol,

I had a male cat do this once. He had a particular love toy. The howling was horrific. He was nuetered too, but it didn't stop him! Now the dog does it. He has a little love hippo he carries everywhere with him.

I just love these cat stories too!  They are GREAT!!!  I have 2 beautiful cats a girl named, Sandie and a boy named, Tipper.  I had never had animals before until I  got these 2 cats.  I got them to help with my grief after my dear Mama passed away in March 2001 and they have REALLY helped and I too, believe they can be very perceptive to our feelings.   I can see already that once these cats go to "kitty heaven" I will have to get 2 more (at least) just for the companionship.

TynyWonder, be careful about your cat math! I had two cats. They were getting old and I worried about what I would do when they were gone, so I adopted a pregnant cat. She had four kittens a week later. I kept the mama cat and two of the kittens, quickly going from two cats to five cats (two to "replace" mine in the event of their demise and one "spare"). Eventually, I added a dachshund to the mix. A few years later, one of my cats did pass away. I guess I forgot I already had a "replacement" cat (or three) in residence, so I adopted another cat. Then my other senior cat passed away. Again I "forgot" I already had plenty of cats, so when Sammy came knocking, I opened the door. Then my dachshund died following surgery and I ended up adopting 2 dogs to "replace" the one (ya need a spare, ya know!). So my theory is that every time I either lose a pet or think I will be losing one, I end up with two more. One of my cats has bladder cancer now. I'm *hoping* this doesn't mean I'm going to end up having 6 cats soon! The vet bills are killing me! So TynyWonder, according to my cat math, you're destined to have at least four cats in your future.

Cat survives being walled in under bath for 7 weeks

59 minutes ago

BERLIN (Reuters) - A four-year-old cat in Germany called Bonny has survived after being walled in beneath a bathtub for seven weeks, its owner said Tuesday.

"It's a miracle," said Monika Hoppert, a 60-year-old widow from the western town of Stadthagen. "I'm a strong believer, I think she must have had a guardian angel. I'm so happy."

Bonny disappeared on June 19 while workmen were replacing pipes in the block of flats where Hoppert lives. The black cat was last seen in a neighboring apartment, where the cladding around a bathtub had been removed.

Just before tub was sealed up again, Bonny had probably crept underneath, Hoppert said.

By the time the neighbor heard Bonny's plaintive miaowing from behind the tiles on August 8, the cat's weight had dropped from 13 pounds to 4 pounds.

"I couldn't believe it. But when I got down there, I knew it was my cat because they all have their own voice," said Hoppert.

Bonny was so weak the vet recommended she be put down. But Hoppert nursed her back to health with watered down kitten food.

"She's almost back to normal now. This morning was the first time she'd jumped onto my bed again," Hoppert said.

Twirl, since you asked for a story.... I will discuss further about Schanppi's love hippo. When Schatzie, our 1st Yorkie came to us, we went overboard and filled an entire basket with puppy toys -- squeaky ones, fluffy ones, hard ones, soft ones -- she wouldn't play with anything after about the first 5 months we got her.  Anyway, when we adopted Schnappi he went through the whole basket of toys.. pulling all of them out and playing a bit.. Eventually he got to this fleece hippo and it was love at first sight. He bugs all of our guests to play "Throw the hippo" and when they get tired of the game, he has intimate relations with it in front of everyone.  :shy; He wants to take it outside with him when I let him out for potty breaks. He even carries this stupid hippo to bed at night. The poor ears are nibbled to bits. "Grandma" has sewn the hippos right ear back in place twice. It used to be a creamy color -- now it is a tan color from the constant use even though I wash it in bleach every few months. Needless to say, hippos love days are numbered.

So, this Christmas it was our mission to find him a new hippo. I looked and looked on-line. My mom went to every pet store she knew of and looked. My mom found a fleece toy that looked like a flat person and I finally found the original hippo -- although I couldn't find it in cream, only gray. On Christmas day, we give him both new toys and after sniffing them for a bit, he runs out of the room and runs back in with -- of course -- his old dirty raggedy hippo. He hasn't touched the gray colored hippo since December and once in a while he will drag out the other fleece toy -- we now call it flat hippo.

For twirl. This is a true story that happen a couple of months back. Len is also adding to this because he says he tells the story better. I'll set up the picture for you.

One afternoon after shopping and doing yard work, I decided to get an early shower and wash my hair. Weather folks said there was a chance of thunderstorms and I'm not silly enough to get in the shower during a storm. Our bathroom off the master bedroom has the shower stall with the shower massage (I like that one) so I gather my towels and clean clothes and off I go. So Len and I have been married almost 30 years and our kids have moved out long ago, so who closes bathroom doors. First mistake of many.... I get the water just like I want it and close the show curtain behind me. I put a big old handful of shampoo in my hand and start scrubbing away... I feel something not right down by my ankles, now I'm thinking that something is coming up out of the drain and I start to panic. Something is down at my feet...... Our cat Mouse, soaking wet rubbing all over me (I didn't know it was her at the time). This is where Len picks up the story. He is in the living room, watching television and hears a blood curdling scream, he comes running down the hall, Willie and Winnie breaking their necks to get to me first. By the time Len gets in the bathroom, Willie and Winnie are already in the shower with me and Mouse. I can't open my eyes because of all the shampoo I used, Len pulls back the shower curtain and starts laughing so hard he thought he was going to pee himself. These insane animals (3 of them), were sitting in the shower with me, all now covered with soap. I'm crying at this point because I really think some creepy thing has come through the sewer to get me. I rinse the soap out of my eyes and tried to compose myself some (I was shaking). I rinsed all the animals off and handed them to Len, one by one to a waiting towel. Honest to God, he didn't dry the cat very well, but he left the bathroom with the 2 yorkies wrap tightly in towels. Problem for me was there were no more bath towels so I had to use a hand towel to dry myself off, walk into the living room and the 2 dogs, cat and Len are all sitting there waiting for me and I swear they all had smiles on their faces... True story. I never know what these critters are going to do next.
