My 10-year-old cat, who we have had for nine years, started licking off her fur on her back legs and stomach a year ago. Her fur is very thick and medium length; she chokes on all the fur she is swallowing. She is an indoor cat and our only pet.  There have been no changes in the household. Could this behavior be caused by boredom and/or loneliness? Any other ideas? This is a great question. There are several causes of over-grooming in cats. Our first goal when we see a cat pulling out her hair is to make sure there is not an underlying medical condition.

Judging by the spicy, sophisticated production of David Ives' “Venus in Fur," it's going to be an interesting year for the Columbia-based professional company Rep Stage, now in its first full season planned by recently appointed co-producing artistic directors Suzanne Beal and Joseph W. Ritsch. "Venus in Fur," a hit on Broadway in 2011, manages a neat little trick of turning tables and shifting centers of gravity as it confronts issues of desire, passion, sexuality and domination.

John-John Williams' recent article on "refashioned" mink coats neglected to tell about the dark side of fur - animals imprisoned for their entire lives, then electrocuted or skinned before they are even dead. Maybe the fashion industry claims there is a renewed interest in fur, but mainstream America is starting to think differently. More and more big name retailers are refusing to sell fur because of the unnecessary cruelty and life of misery to the animals. Ann Roberts, Lutherville

Clothing store buyer Barbie Lattman says that because "putting fur on the wrong person can make them look bigger ... the proportions have to be just right. You've got to watch who you put it on" ("Second skins," Dec. 6). What an amazingly thoughtless comment. I suggest she leave the fur on the animal the clothing manufacturer ripped it off of. It looked just fine there and the proportions were just right. Joyce C. Robinson, Glen Burnie

WASHINGTON - Sandra Berry throws on a fur cape without looking at the price tag. "Oh, it feels great," she purrs, charging it to her credit card. She pulls the wrap tighter in the chilly lobby of the Ritz-Carlton hotel, where a temporary fur salon is serving inauguration guests. It takes five minutes to sell this ... mink? Sable? Chinchilla? "I don't even know what it is," the Detroit visitor says. "I just know I need it." (For the record, it's fox. And the price? Twice her guess of, "I don't know - $2,000?"

This week's theme is "take off your clothes for a cause. " I don't know if they did that on purpose, but it brought some much needed cohesion to the episode. To raise money for breast cancer, Lisa and Lenny are hosting a lingerie party. Lisa wants to impress Lea who is also hosting a party for charity. But I'm not sure that lingerie is quite Lea's style... the party looks more like a brothel than a party, according to Lisa. Before the party Joanna takes off her top and adds a little hair downstairs for her PETAcampaign "grow your own fur. " Joanna wants people to realize that wearing fur isn't sexy.

Other than paint, what are some things that I can do to give my home a fall makeover? Throws are a wonderful way of making your home cozy and warm for the fall. We are loving chunky woven knits and amazing faux fur throws from Fabulous Furs — we have several in the store plus all of the samples. Along with the chilly fall weather I look forward to adding extra layers to my beds. Stuffing your duvet covers with heavier weight down inserts and adding a soft matelasse over your sheet makes it hard to get out of bed in the morning.

The purloined gift cards. The fur coats. The bicycling tours of the city with staffers.  And, of course, the famous shoe incident. Former mayor Sheila Dixon's tenure in City Hall is ripe with material for comedians.  On Thursday, seven comics and local media personalities will be poking fun of  Dixon -- to her face-- at a "Roast and Toast" at the Baltimore Comedy Factory. Why would Dixon, who resigned in 2010 as part of a plea deal to settle criminal charges, agree to a such a thing?

Reporter Matthew Hay Brown took a break from covering military affairs and national security to review the Psychedelic Furs' show at Rams Head on Stage Monday night. Is there anyone having more fun at a Psychedelic Furs show than frontman Richard Butler? His lyrical sophistication and that buzzsaw voice have always given the band's work a certain gravity, but Butler spent so much of their performance in Annapolis on Monday hopping, grinning, beaming that the main impression he conveyed was of a guy having the time of his life.

DEVOTED, long-time readers of this column often ask: "Ken, why have you consistently failed to articulate your position on the wearing of fur?"First of all, the name is Kevin. And as far as my position on fur is concerned, well, I . . . I don't really have a position, although if push came to shove I suppose I could come up with some sort of half-baked . . .OK. For the record, I have no problem with people wearing fur -- as long as the fur in question meets certain, uh, specific criteria, which will now be spelled out.(Understand, that I myself do not own a fur coat, owing to a finely honed moral code as well as an annual income which compares favorably to that of a fourth-grader operating a sidewalk lemonade stand.

Doris Randall hadn't worn her brown bomber mink coat in ages. Her full-length shearling coat got even less use - she wore it about twice in the 15 years since her husband gave it to her. She considered giving the garments to charity before discovering Seleh's De Federal Hill, a tailor and furrier specializing in remodeling leathers and furs. A few months later, Randall had a new three-quarter-length coat for herself and a contemporary-looking mink vest with black sweater sleeves that she gave to her daughter.
