MCS (multiple chemical sensitivities)

What is it? “Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) is a chronic, physical illness affecting people of all ages and backgrounds. It causes sufferers to have allergic-type reactions to very low levels of chemicals in everyday products. Put simply the immune and detoxification systems stop working properly and the body cannot process toxins efficiently.” (MCS aware) I personally have asthmatic …

Talk

“Meo-o-ow.” “MEo-o-W.” “meoa-a-a.” “mm-m-m-w.” “meeow-ow-ow.” “MEOW!” “The more you talk to your cat the more she will try to communicate and talk to you.” I read that somewhere and thought I would try it. After three years, I can say it works. Muffy communicates constantly. I am told when it is time to get up …

Sorry

My kitty said she was sorry the other day. Really! I was sitting on the floor going through a pile and throwing away out of date stuff when Muff jumped up on my desk and missed—a wiggling pile of fluff and claws landed in my lap. As any intelligent person would, I yelled “OW!” as …

Safe Place

Cats need to have a safe place. A place where they can go and know that no one will bother them. Muffy’s favorite place is under our bed. She waits, rather impatiently, for me to make it every morning and immediately runs under to check my work when I’m done. She sleeps under it during …

Record

Muffy has a record. I guess it had to happen someday. She gets crammed into a small box, carted off to a strange place, to sit in a room full of dogs. She’s a furry ball of panic on four legs. The last time we visited the Vet was like all the others except that …

Predator

It’s like a Jaws movie. The sound from a distance, getting closer and closer. Bum-Bum. Bum-Bum. Bum-Bum. Until, BOOM, the four running kitty feet land on my stomach and a few well chosen meows tell me that the food dish is empty. Depending on when the dish gets emptied, this can happen several times during …

Ninja

Muffy is our ninja cat. She loves to hide behind our floor length curtains and pounce at our feet or wait to be found. We call “Where’s the kitty? Where is she?” And eventually she will jump out with a triumphant look on her furry face that seems to say “I fooled you!” What she …

Moving

Cats are extremely territory-oriented so, before we moved, I read everything I could find to help make it easier for Muffy. To help you understand how important their territory is to cats— one of the books I read said that it would actually be easier on some cats to stay at the house with new …
