Oh, it's like talking to an old friend again after months apart!

I regret to say that the two newbie cats (who aren't so newbie, they are rapidly approaching their second anniversary with me) have continued the traditions. Amber the tortoiseshell has a delicate little botty, which, although malodourous, has never been violently offensive. Max the black and white twit has an arse that is evil incarnate. He also has dodgy back legs (both hips broken when a kitten) so can't jump down and get out the room so well. I solve it by leaving him and getting myself out.

Oh, and to link (although not physically) with another thread - Shadow sat on the stove last night and burned her arsehairs. Tradition means a lot in our house!

You guys must have little cats in Europe. Genghis Khat weighed over 28 pounds and lived in the horse barn. He was all black and had a face like a gorilla, wide with large nostrils. My favorite picture of him is stretched over the seats of two ladderback chairs set side by side. I used to tell my neighbors to wrap their female kitties in duct tape, so they wouldn't explode when he boinked them.

He slept on the rear quarters of the Dartmoor pony and would drop off onto the grain rats as they tried to scarf up the sweet feed dropped by the horses. No rodent ever suffered, and was consumed immediately, with a shake that disloged the spleen and literally nothing else.

He used to leave rabbit heads still upright in the front yard, as though they were just emerging from the ground. In the morning I would have to police them up before my daughter went out to wait for the school bus.

Thee only time he ever farted at all was right after I would give him a pill, which was relatively easier than some of the above accounts. I simply tossed him into an old sea bag and tied off his head as it emerged. While holding the bag with padded gloves (no fool I!) I would stick a turkey baster, preloaded with the pill and some bacon grease to seal the calibre, into his mouth with one hand, and then stomp on the bulb. The recoil would stuff him back into the bag, which I would then quickly toss into the yard.

Sometimes he would stay in the bag and sulk for a couple of hours, though one time the neighbor's young son and his German Shepherd, "Panzer" tried to open the bag. The boy gave the best description of a cat and dog fight I've ever heard. He said "Mister, it looked like "Panzer" was wearing a dog suit, and the cat was trying to pull it off over his head". (Remember, the best way to stop a dog from chasing cats, is to let him catch one...)

My Irish Setters were much worst, though they would give clear warning of an impending toxic release into the atmosphere. Any time the "feathers"(long fur on the hindquarters of a sporting breed) straightened out and pointed to the rear of the dog, you needed to evacuate the room, slam the door, and then duct tape the keyhole. But, even that had some advantage. As long as only the dogs were left in the room, it killed all the flies.

Of our seven -- Jake, Lucy, Moose and Squirrel (honest to God it's a coincidence), Tosca, Charles Manson, and the Exalted Bhat, only one has ever had a flatulence problem, and of course it would have to be "my" cat -- the one who always wants to sit on my lap, facing toward my feet with her tail in the air of course. Tosca (a gay friend of mine maintains I'm the only straight guy in the world with a cat named after an opera) could kill trees at 30 paces with one cheek tied behind her. Finally, on the recommendation of a friend we tried feeding her Precise cat food. We get it at the local Wild Oats (a natural foods chain). Et voila'. She may still fart but they don't stink or drown out the music I'm listening to so I don't care. Still don't much care to look at her butt, though. Reminds me of Grandma when she was annoyed, which was all of her waking moments.

Dear Inukshuk,

Would you allow me please to include your story on The Mudcat Storytellers' Page? That way, you could share your concern with many more 'Catters (so to speak).

And I have to agree with Little Hawk -- canine flatulence (a/k/a CSBD Syndrome) is much more prevalent and 'emphatic' than FSBD Syndrome. A recent example of which I can relate is -- Last week, our estate agent came by with a contract to sell our house. Champ, our wonderful Dalmoxer, was not in the house, and, as Champ has become quite fond of said estate agent, the estate agent asked where he was. Worried and embarrassed glances were then exchanged between Dear Hubby and myself. However, we finally admitted that Champ had been banned to the backyard because of his nervous tummy. Last night, the same agent was by the house, and nervous and embarrassed glances were once exchanged between myself and Dear Hubby, as we held our breath (so to speak), hoping that Champ (who was all over the agent) would not make him a victim of his occassional CSBDS . . . but, that's another story . . .

Liquid and solid crap don't have much to do with music, but with gas phase, just maybe, you could train your cat to fart something simple like "Taps". "Kitten on the keys" would perhaps be expecting a little too much.

I've never measured the density of cat farts, so don't know what the velocity of sound and resulting frequencies would be. You may even invent a new key that way. Cows fart methane, and they might be good for a harmony part for the tune.

Dear Friends and fellow cat lovers,
This is probably not the place for such an appeal, but I implore you, in the name of humanity, to take a minute and read how our arctic cats are at risk.

ABNORMAL FELINE BEHAVIOUR IN THE ARCTIC

Accounts of grossly aberrant human behaviour as a result of getting "bushed" or contracting "cabin fever" in Canada's far north have been well documented. However, virtually nothing has been written to describe the effects of extreme climate and severe isolation on household pets, cats in particular. The following four case studies involving instances of anthropomorphism, domination, fetishism, and demonic possession, will serve to create an awareness of the dire consequences suffered by domestic felines who live in the arctic.
Gerald, a long, gangly cat with mottled orange and grey hair, participated as a full equal with his human companions. At meal times he would sit upright on a high chair at the table and eat from a plate using his claws to daintily carry the food to his mouth. During conversations he would politely hang onto every word uttered by the speaker, while gesticulating, nodding his head, and vocalizing in low guttural tones. This cat routinely made use of the flush toilet. There was never any doubt that Gerald considered himself to be a human being.
Less civilized by far was Corky, an extremely dominant and territorial tom, who became embroiled in a deadly battle of wills with his cohabiting male human. The cat and the man fought continuously over territory, especially for possession of the only arm chair in the tiny apartment. The man was enraged one day to witness the animal marking the chair in traditional tomcat fashion. Only quick intervention by the female human averted instant mayhem. A similar crisis occurred a few days later when the man's clarinet became the target of the feline's territorial markings. Corky's fate was sealed, however, when he maneuvered into position on the bathroom sink and singled out the man's toothbrush for his odorous urinary spray. The man took the cat to the edge of town and summarily dispatched it with a shotgun. The body was incinerated in a nearby garbage barrel along with the defiled toothbrush.
Cher, a diminutive Siamese, was put at risk as a result of her overwhelming fetish for human feet and footwear. When not actively enraptured by rubbing against an available foot, she would typically be found sleeping deep down inside any boot or mukluk large enough to accommodate her. Consequently she suffered abuse and indignities at the hands of the household man, who erroneously believed that he could discourage the unwelcome behaviour by playing the cat in the manner of bagpipes. He would bite the cat's tail while squeezing its body under his arm to produce ghastly squawkings. Once, while sharing a large bottle of over-proof rum with a visitor, he demonstrated his cat-playing expertise, and went on to brag that he could also play dogs using an accordion technique. After a few more drinks, the inebriates wandered outside to perform a duet. As the inept visitor struggled to maintain Cher in the appropriate bagpipe position, his host grabbed a passing husky firmly by the ears and tail and began a vigorous squeezebox routine. The resulting cacophony was a brief but horrific quartet of commingled animal and human screams. The husky ran off, the men staggered to the nursing station for medical attention, and Cher slipped back inside to hide in a gumboot for two days. Old Andrew's nameless black cat adapted to life in the arctic better than any other domestic feline, but the results were not pretty. Allowed to range freely in a settlement where half-wild dogs outnumbered people two to one, he appeared permanently stressed and tense. His huge yellow eyes, located unnaturally to the side of his head, never seemed to blink. Repeated frostbite had reduced his ears and tail to barely discernible nubs. Humans and canines alike heeded the forewarnings of his unearthly vocalized threats. Old Andrew boasted frequently of being in league with the Devil, and it was taken for granted that his cat also enjoyed sinister protection. There was simply no other way to explain his continued survival.
Although the above examples represent but a minuscule sampling of the abnormal behaviour that is rampant among domestic cats living in Canada's Arctic, they raise awareness to the magnitude of this pressing problem. It is an appalling situation that will not rectify itself. There is an urgent need for rigorous studies and comprehensive surveys that will enable diagnostic and remedial services to be implemented effectively. Concerned individuals and agencies must urge government, at the local, Territorial, and Federal levels, to act immediately. The sanity and the souls of our arctic cats are at stake.

Thank you for your perseverence and your concern. These are true case studies. None of these cats ever got to enjoy their prerogative of felicitatious feline flatulence.

Inukshuk

Gawd you guys make me laugh!!

First off, most of the gastrointestinal problems that animal have are diet related. Almost ALL of their physical problems can be related to diet.

For cats, the best all around diet I've found is ScienceDiet adult maintenence. Don't let the price fool you. They have a feeding chart on the back, and price-wise, the food just lasts longer per bag than store-bought cat foods. They also make a canned food Bert, but the extra oils and water can lead to GI problems too. Dry is just better. It's nutritionally sound, and it chips the tartar off of their teeth too. The big bonus, is if you feed them less, there is less to clean up too! I always tell folks it's like the cereal adverts. You could feed 12 bowls of friskies to one bowl of this food. You do the litterbox math...

Homeopathically...mix equal amounts of dried catnip with dried parsley. Sprinkle a bit of that in their food. The catnip shouts EAT ME and the parsley does the non-stink duty in the intestines...

For dogs...I'm sorry to report, even though the ScienceDiet stuff is GREAT...Science has yet to find a way to make a dog stop farting. The best we can do is learn to use it this energy source for good. (We've already drawn up plans at work for little ass-mounted windmills.....)

Love to every stinkin' one of you,

Dave Goulder's method for worming a cat would probably work for curing the farts as well. Involves about 30 feet of string with a knot at every three, a sardine as bait and a cruel streak:-) When I see him next I'll try and get the words for his nasty little poem.

Nice chap as Dave is he ain't no cat lover.

Cat farts are one thing, but......

I haven't enjoyed the company of a cat inside my house since Rosie passed away, but I have many well-mannered cats and dogs that frequent my porch to bask in the sun and receive many hugs, pats, and praise from me. These are my company when I'm outside, my "porchpals" as I call them. I never feed them because I wouldn't want other people feeding my pets if I had any. I've never noticed any foul odors emanating from these animals while enjoying their company, however, there is this phantom, Old Tom, that leaves his calling card on my front door when the other female cats are in heat. Geeze! does that stink when the sun bakes on it. I have tried everything from Urine-Kleen to new paint to eradicate the smell and have been fairly successful, but that does not discourage Old Tom from marking his territory on a regular basis. As soon as he senses that I have erased the smell, he sneaks back and reestablishes his claim on my porch. I have had several heart to heart talks with Old Tom about the problem, but he says he forgets. Anyone know any cat psychology or have any humane ideas for discouraging this kind of behavior? I enjoy his company too, so I don't want him to feel unwelcome. Pew!

I dunno...I think it's just part of the infamous cat mystique--my three are all selective about timing, it seems to me.

And here's my list of Furry Children: Bat (small fierce black short-hair with amber eyes, pointy batlike face, and evil disposition--master serial killer of small shrieking things), Lonnie Sue Chaney (gray and brown tabby klutz--the only truly clumsy cat I've ever been owned by--has an incredible raccoon tail), and Bela Bruce Lugosi (gray tiger with a loving disposition for humans, a razor-sharp temper for her brothers, and is an avid proponent of decorating with body parts, particularly the living room right after I clean it). Oh, yeah, and our poor little poodle Woof, who TRIES to make the damned cats mind, but they just WILL NOT cooperate. I love being a work-at-home Mom to this crew; the only problem is, some days I speak more dog and cat than English! I gotta get a life outside this place one of these days...

Blue Jay, the cat shat in your SHOE?! Geez, mine have the good manners to hide it in the laundry pile. ;-)

In the cases of both your cat and your dog, the cause of flatulence is probably a change in diet. It doesn't even matter if you are feeding them top of the line, break the bank food like Kat gives hers; if they are eating different food this week than they were last week, they're going to be stinky for a while.

As for the shitty shoe...Was her box accessible and clean? Mine go where they please when the box gets full. Otherwise, I don't know; maybe the message was "Thanks for taking me in and giving me a lovely new home. Allow me to make your shoes more comfortable."

Our cats have no flatulence problem unless they are eating cheap food, especially the canned variety (which also causes them to emit deathlumps in the litter box). Sometimes if we have switched from one brand to another they get stinky. They do fine on Purina ProPlan or the brand called 365, which we pick up for very little money in the local health food store ($1.99 for 4 pounds!). They do eat a lot less of the 365 than the tastier ProPlan, but they are beautifully healthy on both.

Not that anyone cares, but it will make me happy to tell you that we have four kitties; Houdini is 10 and the newest addition (black cat, green eyes, total wimp with gorgeous siamese-shaped face. quite the yowler; he came with the house we just moved into), Lydia is our first kitty (tortoise-shell calico with yellow eyes and a half yellow-tiger and half black-tiger face, part Siamese by the sound of her, total lovey; 5 years old this coming April), ZZ the former mama cat was rescued from negligent neighbors after five litters of babies (white with black tiger splotches all over her, also a half-and-half face and green eyes and bunny-like fur - probably from consuming so many of them...She turned 5 in October but had all her babies before she was 3), and Gilbert (grey tiger with spots instead of stripes, green eyes; totally timid but hounds his chosen person -me- half to death, he turned 2 in June). Whew, I feel better now. :-)

It doesn't even matter if you are feeding them top of the line, break the bank food like Kat gives hers; if they are eating different food this week than they were last week, they're going to be stinky for a while.

As for the shitty shoe...Was her box accessible and clean? Mine go where they please when the box gets full. Otherwise, I don't know; maybe the message was "Thanks for taking me in and giving me a lovely new home. Allow me to make your shoes more comfortable."

Our cats have no flatulence problem unless they are eating cheap food, especially the canned variety (which also causes them to emit deathlumps in the litter box). Sometimes if we have switched from one brand to another they get stinky. They do fine on Purina ProPlan or the brand called 365, which we pick up for very little money in the local health food store ($1.99 for 4 pounds!). They do eat a lot less of the 365 than the tastier ProPlan, but they are beautifully healthy on both.

Not that anyone cares, but it will make me happy to tell you that we have four kitties; Houdini is 10 and the newest addition (black cat, green eyes, total wimp with gorgeous siamese-shaped face. quite the yowler; he came with the house we just moved into), Lydia is our first kitty (tortoise-shell calico with yellow eyes and a half yellow-tiger and half black-tiger face, part Siamese by the sound of her, total lovey; 5 years old this coming April), ZZ the former mama cat was rescued from negligent neighbors after five litters of babies (white with black tiger splotches all over her, also a half-and-half face and green eyes and bunny-like fur - probably from consuming so many of them...She turned 5 in October but had all her babies before she was 3), and Gilbert (grey tiger with spots instead of stripes, green eyes; totally timid but hounds his chosen person -me- half to death, he turned 2 in June). Whew, I feel better now. :-)

Fat cats, thin cats, cats both owned and strayed;

Mixed breeds, pedigreeds, even cats who have been spayed let

Cat farts! Stinkin' cat farts!

That last and last all night.

Avoid cheap cat food, don't let them eat brocolli, even though mine will grab it off your plate or, in one case, off the fork halfway to your mouth!

And watch out, there are some very nasty and largely UNPUBLICISED viruses out there, including a feline immuno deficiency virus, known as FIV, and related to the HIV virus but not transferrable to humans. It is VERY transferrable in cats, usually one or two good deep bites will do it.....

In all seriousness, flautulence usually has to do with diet,esp. in dogs. Table scraps should be a no no, and also high fat pet foods. Read the label on what you are feeding, and try to find something with less fat. Some animals are sensitive to specific things, just like humans. It could be horse meat that is causing the problem. Try to switch to a dry, urinary tract diet, but cats are notorious for not wanting to switch brands. Rawhide dog chews also cause this problem, and will swell in the gut and cause intestinal blockages. I give a high desity "baked bone" to my dogs. These are real bones that have been pressure treated so as not to splinter.

Just got a cat last week- nobody told me they farted. Poor thing meowed at all the neighbors doors for a couple of days before I determined she didn't belong to anyone in the area. Not even full grown, she's really mellow, (my three year old uses her for a necklace), she was dehydrated and starving, so we took her in. It may sound ridiculous, but we got a dog the next day- we'd been planning that. But the dog farts too. Do you think they're marking their territory? A defensive mechanism perhaps. They seem to tolerate each other fairly well. Oh, well it's nice to have an understanding landlord, (originally was no pets, due to neglected Rottweilers). And it's really great to have PETS back in our lives: Sea Monkeys just don't cut it. I was thinking of an alligator, but after reading this thread...

This may be of interest. I stumbled upon it as a link from a jazz/blues lyrics site. It seems to be exhaustive on the subject - it includes a section on animal farts, reading lists, a treasury of childhood fartlore, definitive dictionary of words for 'fart' etc.

click here

In case the clicky thing doesn't work the URL is:
