Welcome to the forums Jim!

If your cat likes catnip - occasionally put some on toys and stuff. That might help with the bonding as well.

Since down under was an abused cat and i dont want to stuff her into a carrier for a trio to the vet I have left the carrier out with some catnip in it. so all last week the vet said call and we will fit her in
Now she is sleeping in the carrier and the vet is too busy
argghh well kitty will just have to wait i guess
nothing wrong with her just needs a nail clip and a checkup:shrug:

Jim...great idea with the cat carrier..My vet told me years ago that I should leave it out so the cats can become used to it...They often sleep in it....It kind of makes sense...some people pull their carriers out of a closet 1 a year for the vet check up and all the cat remembers is that you took them to THAT PLACE!!! :laughing: Mine love the carrier but dont like the car ride to the vets....Once there they like to explore...

It is great news that she has come thing to do is never force the situation..cats seem to work on their time!!

Good Luck
