On Cats | Charles Bukowski
54 posts | 13 read | 41 to read
'A cat is only ITSELF,' Bukowski wrote. 'Representative of the strong forces of life that won't let go' A raw and tenderly funny look at the relationship between cats and humans from one of the world's most treasured and transgressive writers 'The cat is the beautiful devil' For Charles Bukowski there was something majestic and elemental about cats. He considered them to be sentient beings, whose searing gaze could penetrate deep into our being. Cats see into us; they are on to something. Funny, moving, tough, and caring, On Cats brings together the acclaimed writer's reflections on these animals he so admired. We also see these creatures at their most ruthless and most resilient: they are fighters, hunters, survivors who command awe and respect as they grip tightly onto the world around them. On Cats gives an illuminating portrait of one very special writer and a lifelong relationship with the animals he considered his most profound teachers.

I didn‘t think I could dislike a book of poems about cats, but this wasn‘t my thing.

Kaila-ann I don‘t think your cat is enjoying it either lol. (edited) 10mo

#TBRtemptation post 6! This short book goes into the positive relationship between the crusty writer and the felines he respected and admired. This book of reflective poems is humorous, edgy and raw. Mingled with other subjects such as life and aging, Bukowski's love for cats shines through. #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎

Look at this goober. Big stretch! I'm told he's very drugged up atm. Yesterday was solely spent taking him to the vet and learning he has a UTI/crystals due to his weight so I've been trying to get him to drink water, take his new med, and not pee on the carpet! 🙈😂😭 His water fountain also broke yesterday so no more easy way to get him to drink :( I know a lot of ya'll are cat people, so any advice?

Bookzombie Aww, poor kitty. I wish I had advice for you. Cats are so funny about how they love the fountains. Mine gets upset when I take it to clean it and just give her a bowl of water. 3y
8little_paws Can you get him to eat wet food? 3y
8little_paws I transitioned my cats to wet by mixing in more and more each day with the dry food over a week or so 3y
See All 32 Comments
MarriedtoMrT I have a female on special food because she kept getting UTIs. I'm not much help except to say that Nature's Miracle spray does seem to really work to clean and discourage re-wetting areas after he feels better. Healing vibes to him and positive thoughts to you! 3y
BookishFeminist Aw poor kitty! I hope he feels better soon! 🐱🐾 3y
BookishMarginalia He's a cutie! Wet food, a new fountain, and just keep doing what you're doing. 💜 3y
elkeo_TheBookDragon My guy recently had pee troubles too and I successfully get him to ingest more fluid by adding water to his wet food to make more like gravy. Crystals are scary - good luck! I always heard grain free foods help prevent crystals too. 3y
mrsh62010 Wet food is a must. My kitty passed away from urinary blockage. He was incredibly sick almost instantly, and was already too late to save him when we got to the vet. Simply feeding wet food would have prevented it, had I known... Cats have a low thirst drive as most of their fluids come from their prey in the wild. They need the fluids from wet food to balance this out, especially boy kitties. Best wishes for your sweet pal! 3y
LectricSheep My cat will practically only drink out of the sink. 🙄she used to drink out of her fountain, but somehow...progressed? Regressed? Who knows....to the sink. So in a pinch, I think most fountain-loving kitties will like a sink faucet as well. Not sure you want to go down that path though.... hope he feels better soon! ❤️️ 3y
LindsayReads One of my cats developed diabetes, and dehydration was def a problem. Wet food and/or pouring a little water onto his dry food. My cats used to not be into wet food...if yours is the same, check out Trader Joe's tuna for cats. It is universal kitty crack in my experience. 3y
PenguinInFlight Poor guy!! My kitty had the same problem...wet food helps a lot, since they don't seem to want to drink much. You can even add a little water to it, and they tend to lap it up. I hope he's on the mend soon!! 💗💗 3y
mrsh62010 And yes @MarriedtoMrT is right about Nature's Miracle. Used it when house training my pup, and it prevents repeat attempts. But yeah just try to be grateful he's able to pee! I spent my kitty's last day loving him and begging him to pee wherever he wanted, but the blockage was too severe :( 3y
Handmade_Redhead Poor thing. Hope he gets better soon. No suggestions except those already made. 3y
8little_paws Also I will recommend Nature's Variety Instinct as a nice quality, easy to obtain wet food. They sell it at petsmart and petco. I have a cat with a chronic digestive issue and this is one of the best foods for him. My other cat had crystals years ago but a diet change got rid of them. 3y
Tanzy13 🐱 3y
Soubhiville One of my guys is on urinary food too. Wet food, new fountain (in the meantime will he drink from the sink? You could leave it dripping- my cats love that). I see these aren't new suggestions... Petsmart carries a few brands of urinary tract protection foods that are cheaper than what the vet sells, seeming to work ok for my guy so far. 3y
Kimzey Can't improve on the advice already offered. Just hope he feels better soon! 😻 3y
LeahBergen Aww! Sweet guy. 3y
DebinHawaii I can't offer any additional advice to the above but hope kitty feels better soon. 🐱❤️ 3y

WordWaller Oh my gosh everyone thank you SO MUCH for sending love and all your comments and advice. ❤️❤️❤️ Just got home after a long long day and no phone so I will be taking notes and replying respectively to your comments tomorrow. Thanks again so much! Update: he's chipper as ever and just 💩 in the litter box but then promptly peed on the rug right outside it hahaha. So as you said, I'm just thankful he can pee! Lots of trash bags going down now! 3y
elkeo_TheBookDragon Put down some piddle pads - easier to clean up - and be glad he goes anywhere! I love how Litsy turned into an animal care site here 😺 3y
WordWaller @bookzombie thank you ❤️ he's a particular little guy! @8little_paws we used to do mostly dry and some wet but just switched to mostly wet and some dry. And we pour water over his dry food. So I seriously don't know what I was doing wrong! @MarriedtoMrT I've practically used my whole bottle of Nature's Miracle and can still smell pee, but it's better than nothing! Thank you! @BookishFeminist @bookishmarginalia thank you! ❤️ 3y
WordWaller @elkeo Thanks! It's funny because we are using grain free dry food with water on top but now have switched to only one dry meal a day and mostly wet. I think he's happy with that. @mrsh62010 I'm so sorry about your kitty! :( :( That must have been so hard. It's crazy how little particular things like that matter so much when my parents taught me something completely different growing up! I never knew wet food was so important until I got these 2 3y
WordWaller @LectricSheep haha I've tried letting him use the sink but he can't fit his head under there without getting super wet 😂😂 thanks! We're ordering a new fountain soon. @LindsayReads ooh, thanks for the recommendation! We use an expensive dry AND wet food and always pour water over it unless we leave them for hours. So idk, I'm adding even more now haha @PenguinInFlight @handmade_redhead thank you!! ❤️ 3y
WordWaller @8little_paws ooh, thanks for the rec! We use Soulistic for the wet food and a weight watching grain free Solid Gold for the little bit of dry we give them. @Soubhiville thanks!! I think we'll see if he gets better with what we have and consider switching to something else if this becomes a regular problem. @Kimzey @DebinHawaii @Faibka @Dolly @BethFishReads @RealBooks4ever @kspenmoll thank you!! ❤️❤️❤️ he seems to be doing a little better! 3y
WordWaller @elkeo haha right??! I was surprised by all the responses!! And thanks! I have plastic bags all around he little boxes but that's an even better idea! 3y

Eyglo Thank you @BookishMarginalia !! I think so too ? They are both from the local shelter and are my dear housecats ? (In Iceland we give non-breed/shelter cats the breed name "housecats" ?) 3y

atunah So sweet 😻I am about to adopt 1 or 2 again. Feels lonely without cats in the house. I needed some time after I had to say goodbye to my old shelter boy in summer. 3y
Eyglo @atunah I can imagine! A house is not a home without cat(s) is my philosophy 😻 Sorry about yours - it's so hard when we have to say goodbye 💙 Good luck with the new one (s), they will be lucky to have you! 3y
atunah @Eyglo thank you. I agree with your philosophy fully😸. 3y

rubyslippersreads How can you resist that face? 😺 3y
Alma @rubyslippersreads I can't! I actually put the book aside as he requested 😀 He always gets his way, but what can I do? 😻😽 3y
rubyslippersreads @Alma I know the feeling--I can't move right now because a cat has entwined himself around my left arm. Guess I'll just have to sit here and read. 😸 3y
Alma @rubyslippersreads Hehe I love when they do that! 😻 3y
