    Anything I can do?

    I am visiting my parents, and brought Sebastian in his travel cage. I laid my t-shirt on the bed to go color my hair, and my mom came in to make the bed. She put the t-shirt near the cage and he pulled it in and ate a hole in it about an inch in diameter. He seems quite friendly and lively this...

    Wow, that was embarrassing

    Last night, the bf Derek was reaching into the cage to give Sebastian some scratches. Sebastian has bitten him before but he always forgives and tries again to "win him over" which I don't think is going to work. So last night when he was talking gently and petting/scratching Sebastian...

    Want to make a play area?

    The bf and I are closing on a new home (our first!) soon. It has a massive unfinished basement, and while I don't want to have Sebastian's cage in the basement, I thought it would be nice to somehow close off a corner for a play area. My first thought was to get a playpen with extra panels and...

    Just curious, question about combs

    Recently, my Sebastian has been shedding quite a bit, he has a "halo" of fuzzy fur sticking out and also some random tufts. I guess this is the "priming" I have heard about. I combed him recently, I saw a video (I think from a member on here) on how to comb chins. I obviously don't have a chin...

    Meet my new baby!

    We went to the spca and brought home the tabby named James today. He's such a sweet boy! He's a bit afraid of our other cat at the moment and has been hiding in the laundry room. We're not sure what his name is going to be yet. I wanted to name him Martin, but our other cat is named Marla and...

    My guilt complex

    Sorry for this overemotional long post, I know that many of you have multiple species of pets though, and I'd appreciate your thoughts. Some of you may remember my mentioning losing my 18 yr old cat in Jan of this year. It was the hardest time I've had in my life since we grew up together, I'm...

    Changes in behavior

    My boy Sebastian has changed quite a bit in the past month or so. He used to always come to his dust bath when I set it in the cage to get him for playtime. Now he is very suspicious of it, and I've had to get him by the base of his tail to get him out of his cage for the past few weeks! What...

    It may not be the best idea...

    To eat vanilla almond shredded wheat straight out of the box, then decide to give your chin scritches! OM NOM NOM! :neener:

    My little boy's grown up! Pics!

    My photographer friend visited this weekend and took some pics of Sebastian during his playtime. I realized how huge and nice he looks now since the food switch and dust switch to Blue Cloud. He seems to have put on some weight and gotten fluffier-looking. Of course, I believe he was not fully...

    Cute pic of my grumpy cat

    Our cat (it's really my bf's cat because she doesn't like me much) never really is the cuddle with me or sit on my lap and be petted type. She actually been known to growl at me if I sit too close to her, little brat. My bf caught her trying to make herself into a blanket for me the other day...

    I know I'm beautiful!

    I don't think I've posted this sleeping pose of Sebastian's before, it's always hard for my camera to get a good picture in front of that mirror. But if I were as beautiful as Sebastian, I think I'd want to gaze at myself while dozing too! As an update, he is doing well. He was boarded for a...

    How to clean a poo-encrusted Chin Spin?

    Many of you probably know I had some problems with Sebastian having squishy poo lately. It is getting better thanks to slowly mixing in new feed (Tradition) in with his old Mazuri, but his poor Chin Spin is suffering! I have tried paper towels and warm water, which does basically nothing. Any...

    Is this what happened to you guys who used to feed Mazuri?

    So for the past 3 days Sebastian has has soft poops. They come out normally formed and don't have any nasty smell or anything, but he steps on them and they squish. I was wondering if this is what happened to make some of you switch from Mazuri? Also last week or so he stopped eating his hay...

    Chinny yawns?

    Hey all, I've seen threads asking for whisker pics and tongue pics, but I've never seen anyone capture a chinny yawn! Is it even possible? I know I like to go wake up Sebastian in the "morning" (for him, like 11 am) in hopes that he'll stretch out his tiny arms and do a big yawn for me! I love...

    I Hate My Apartment

    Sorry this is kinda long but I was wondering what you guys would do or have done in this situation. For the past MONTH, our a/c or SOMETHING has been leaking out of the wall and puddling under our carpet. Not just a little water, if you are unfortunate enough to step on it, there's an audible...

    Hair rings related to shedding?

    Sebastian has been shedding or "priming", I guess it is called. His fur is kinda sticking out and he sheds all over me when I pick him up. TWICE in the past month, I have removed hair rings from him. Just curious if this is related to his shedding and if there's anything I can do about it. If...

    Feeling guilty

    Lately Sebastian has not been getting his out-of-cage playtime. Ever since summer has arrived, there has been a massive outbreak of spiders in our apartment, of which I am TERRIFIED. They seem to like the kitchen and bathroom the most, and the bathroom is the only chin proof room in our tiny...

    Update on my boy's behavior

    Hey all, it has been a while since I posted about my boy Sebastian, so I thought I would update everyone and get some comments on your thoughts. I popped into chat a while ago and talked to a few people about it, and was told it was probably just his puberty stage. He's still being difficult to...

    Do I just have a manipulative boy??

    Lately since it has been so hot out (I have A/C on of course, but I still worry), I've tried to discourage Sebastian from burrowing into my lap for mini-naps during playtime. If I leave him there he has super red hot ears by the time he gets up. So today he tried to do it several times and I...
