for every cute kitten, there's at least one mad cat...

It's all their fault. They turned me into a mad cat, and there is no option but to make them suffer for the rest of their sorry, fur-less lives. I can say is, Thank God I can type.

If you are a human who has stumbled upon this site, please, if there is one shred of decency in that body of yours, leave this site open for the cat to find while you're at work.

Thank you.

Catster Fun – Time To Get Social

We Ragdolls are supposed to be sociable.

So… okay.

Click on my glorious puss to see me:

#1 cat site for cats & bipeds!

Click on here to read about my purrfect breed – The Ragdoll.

Time to get social… I guess.

Don’t Get Sad. Get Mad.

Rise up!  Rise up, I say!

My human cellmates (aren’t we all in a prison of our own making?) can go from sad to mad in 0 to 60 seconds. They have perfected this switcheroo into an art form. They say it keeps depression at bay.

I just stay mad.

And, yes… “There is no logic in this place.”

In the famous words of a good human, John Cougar Mellencamp “I fight authority, authority always wins.”

Thank you, zefrank1.

Cold In Your Cat – Holistic Remedies For The Cat Flu

Okay.  So one sneeze is fun, two is double fun, but three?  Three sneezes gets old.  I’m so over this.  Cold?  Flu?  Sinuses?  Really?  What is it!  Ah… Humans?  Where are ya on this?  Help.

(From the Human:  Here’s what I found.  Hope this helps because I, too, am getting tired of your sneezing.  When will you learn the Dracula cover-up?  Never mind. Other Humans read on.)

I’m So Depressed – I Can’t Even Insert An Exclamation Point

Signs of Depression in CatsWe know Humans can get the blues, feel down, or can actually become depressed, clinically speaking.  But what about Cats?

After the loss of our dear friend Simon, one of our most beloved founders here at MadCatDiaries.com, we Cats noticed something happening.  Oh sure, we lay around a lot.  Oh sure, we sleep 20 hours a day.  Oh sure, we lick and groom a lot.  Oh sure, we walk away from our food only to beg our Humans for it later.  But hey, we enjoy all that stuff.

So, what’s happening?  There seems to be a general malaise settling in around our little community.  The Cats and Humans all are, well, just not right.  Could it be that we are depressed?  Could it be that the sadness has lingered and not working its way through?

The Humans have talked it out and, yes, they are depressed.  And, yes, the Humans are able to figure out what they need to do.  Because they know what happened!

But we Cats don’t have a voice, to speak of (sorry.)  We are trying to communicate in the only ways we know how – with our behavior.  Have the Human’s noticed?  We are not sure.  One thing we know for sure…

Cats can suffer depression, too.

Some Humans who should know (like Katherine Houpt, director of the Animal Behavior Clinic at Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in Ithaca, N.Y.) recognized depression in Cats way back in the 1990s.

She said; Continue Reading…

The Passing Of One Of Our Most Beloved Founding-Felines

It is with great sadness that I report the passing of one of our most beloved founding-felines here at MadCatDiaries, Simon.

After a courageous battle against CRF, Simon went peacefully out of this world and into the next.

Simon was a handsome Blue Point Ragdoll.  Because of his breed, he was almost not allowed to join our community.  As you know, Ragdolls are notoriously benign and pleasant.  However, Simon showed us that not all breed descriptions can, or should, be believed.  As a matter of fact, Simon proved to be the very epitome of a Mad Cat.

Simon went from a cute kitten to a Mad Cat before he lost his first kitten tooth. His feisty, sassy personality kept many Humans at bay, but not all.  The Humans who loved him also loved his sassy behavior.  The Humans here at MadCatDiaries also believe that it was that spunk that kept him strong and brave during his illness.

We Humans and Cats at MadCatDiaries miss Simon very much.  We believe all Mad Cats go to Heaven, and we know that he will enjoy tormenting all the other Cats in Heaven for eternity.

So, Simon, until we meet again, you are sadly missed by us all here at MadCatDiaries.

Home From The Slammer – Battling CRF

CRF – Chronic Renal Failure – Not gonna get this Mad Cat down!

Hey friends!  Thanks for the well wishes.  Yeah, this CRF stuff is a h**l of a note, but, I’m home safe and sound and feeling better.  My poor Humans (never thought I’d say that) are having a harder time than I am.  They worry about me.

My Human left this YouTube video open on the computer, so I took a look.  I knew they were up to something when that bag came home from the slammer with me.  I put it here for you to see.  It really isn’t bad and it makes me feel gooooood!

So that’s my life right now – laying around and getting SubQ’d. I like the laying around and the attention, and the SubQ thing ain’t half bad.

I’m going back up into my tower now. I think She’s up roaming the house and She dearly LOVES to see me up there all warm and cozy. Well, give Her what She wants, eh? What’s it hurt.

Later!

Cat Plus Empty Box – What Could Happen?

Simon’s Cat in an empty box?  Will Humans ever see their folly.

If you read yesterday’s post you know I’ve been a little under the weather. Okay, I’m in the slammer. You can check out my misery by clicking on these blue words.

To be specific, I’m at my vet’s and my Humans haven’t come to get me yet. I had to spend too many days here getting stuff stuck and jabbed at me. So, I needed a laugh.

I’ve been hiding my laptop in my cell and while all the white coat humans were gone I quick did a little looking around to see what was happening. I discovered this little gem and lmfbo – that’s laugh my furry butt off – in case you didn’t know.

Now quick, before your Human finds you at the computer and you have to lay on the keyboard all cute like you weren’t actually typing, click on these blue words here and you’ll be saying lmfbo, too!

Oops… you went by it.  Here it is again.  Go ahead and take your mouse (Ha! That never gets old!) and click these blue words –> SimonsCat.com Come back when you’re done watching and let me know what you think.  I’ll wait right here… I’m not going anywhere.

Okay, you’re back.  What did you think?

We’ve all been there, right?

I think I’ll recover much faster now that I’ve seen Simon’s Cat in action.

I also feel connected to Simon’s Cat for some reason.  Could it be because we’re both Drawn?

As soon as they spring me from this place, I’m going to spend my nights at the computer looking at more of this stuff. Anybody who’s reading this should too. Very funny, Simon’s Cat!
