    You should definitely take your cat to a vet - this could be an infection, parasite, etc. I have seen what you are talking about, and I have 3 cats myself.

    Dude, sounds like worms.

    If you LIKE having a cat, you should check out the book THE NEW NATURAL CAT by Anitra Frazier.

    Have you been subjecting the cat to your music?

    Your cat might need some Petromalt or Catalax.

    bring him/her to a vet. the cat obviously is itchy there or has worms.

  7. :eyebrow: NO, but one of mine does have a really bad habit of pushing his waterdish all over the kitchen until he can find something to use as leverage and dump it out. Then he sits and whines till i fill it up.

    so he can dump it again. :help:

    This is gonna sound quite nasty.

    More than likely, your cats anal glands are backed up. Cats and dogs have 2 glands located by there anus, hence the name, anal glands. When they get backed up, the animal often drags its butt across the carpet/floor to relieve the pressure that has built up inside them. The reason I'm pretty sure of this is because I used to be a Vet Tech back in the early and mid 90's.

    So you now have ass juice all over your carpet.

  9. Sounds like my ex-girlfriend.. :rollno:

    No, but my brother always did that when we were kids.

  11. One of my cats had an issue with that, she kept chewing on her hindquarters until she had bruised herself something fierce. It was painful for me watching the vet extracting the glop from her anal glands. She was scared and you could tell it hurt like a mofo. After that the bruise scabbed up and she lost a big clump of hair on her left quarterpanel.

    My Laborador had this problem. I have never seen one of our cats do it though. The visual is really cracking me up...That is because it's not my cat doing it.

    Take him to the vet.

    i will fill up my cats dish ocne a week(its a huge dish) so instead of taking the huge bowl to the sink, i just fill it with a water bottle.

    so my cat, will only drink from it when i take the bowl to the sink and fill it. like she knows.

    anytime i take it to the sink and fill it, she drinks it. when i fill it up with the water bottle, she will put her nose in the air and drink the water from the toilet.

  15. Come to think of it- I'm not trying to scare you, but an old girlfriend's kitten did that and that's why we took her to the vet and found she had Feline Leukemia. :(

    Wow. I didn't really think it could be anything serious - just a bad habit. He HAS had constipation problems in the past. Last time it cost me $400. I'll keep an eye on him. It's something he's done for years from time to time so I'm not going to be overly concerned. Perhaps I'll just scratch it for him. Just kidding.

    There were a couple of good LOLs in this thread. Thanks.

    My cats take food and dump it in their water dish every single time I fill it up. Even if I put it across the room. I never caught them either - don't know which one does it (I have 2). I'm not sure if it's because they like flavored water, because they want me to keep giving them fresh water, or if one of them is being mean to the other after they drink to their heart,s content.

    >>> That happened to me last time I ate too many Jalapenos... Quit feeding them to your cat!!!
    In all seriousness, if it continues, run him up to the vet.

    One time, while I was still at home, I woke up w/ this odd movement on my chest... There he was sitting on my going to town on his crotch... I think he yelped when he hit the back wall of my bedroom.. I was too tired to care *L*
