    X large litter box- longer

    I use plastic cat litter boxes and wash them with bathroom cleaner once a month (Lysol bathroom cleaner). I've had mine for years and they don't retain smell because they are sanitized :)

    moving with an outdoor cat?

    He might appreciate some leashed walks in his new indoor life or a Catio outside at your townhouse. Not necessary, but we've enjoyed it with ours. It can help if he gets stir crazy.

    How much less do you cats eat in the summer?

    Up in Ontario Canada and yes our cats eat less in the summer. We feed wet and add extra water but we notice a HUGE appetite increase on cooler days. We found dehumidifiers helped. It never hurts to get some bloodwork done if you're worried about illness.

    my cats are scared its been a year

    I'm sorry but I find your post very confusing. I'm not really sure what's wrong with your cats other than afraid to go in the basement. Is it truly necessary for them to go downstairs? You should feed them where they are comfortable. It's best to make a "base camp" for your cats with their...

    @JacobinCat I'm so glad to hear you're taking some extra time to care for yourself. And also that your floofs are doing well too! Keep at it. You're all doing great.

    Dry food suggestions

    Ew. I saw that study. However, of more concern was actually how often you clean the pet food bowls.... whether or not subsequent studies end up proving that raw diets are more risky or not. So articles like this were of interest to note to me. How often you wash your dog's bowl can affect your...

    Dry food suggestions

    I'm going to come along and say something a bit 'controversial'. If you don't like this advice you can leave it aside. Everyone has an opinion on what's a healthy cat food but the facts are this: Cats are the only domestic animal that we've actually extended the life of. I'm fact we've almost...

    X large litter box- longer

    A large ferret litter worked great for Lily because of that 😂 The young boys use it for poos now.... I was going to buy a different one for them but now I don't want to change it up because they use it.

    40-50% of Feeby's diet is baby food meat

    I came here to read the information which was very fascinating. Thanks to all I learned a lot. I just wanted to add that my vet was able to give me taurine suppliments for Magnus and tell me how much to give. They weren't expensive...around $20/month but I unfortunately no longer have a bottle...

    X large litter box- longer

    The ones with the whole in the top become difficult for them as they age so I've never tried one. I do find that if something is going on with them that they prefer the lid off here. But you have many boxes so they are perhaps just using their prefered space or box type. I got one of those...

    X large litter box- longer

    Something with a lid might help. Nobel is the lower end of MC as he's only half and he still manages to pee out the side sometimes. We put some velcro sticks on reusable pee pads outside the box

    Resident cat attacks new kitten. Desperate need of help!

    You will need a few instances of positive interactions through the gate before introducing them. They should both be tired out when you do this. Your resident cat should be comfortable to fully play while the kitten is in view before same-room introduction step. Lastly, they should be doing...

    Resident cat attacks new kitten. Desperate need of help!

    This is actually great. When she watches the kitten play, she is learning the kitten's body language. Eventually she will feel comfortable to play herself. Keep encouraging her to play while the kitten is on the other side playing but don't force it. I skip the feeding close step of Jackson...

    Any Good Tips To Get Your Cats To Eat? Share Them Here!

    My cats have not had constipation from Flotiflora. It actually helped our old man cat with this problem. You can also try feeding kitten food..it has more calories and things like added probiotics. Our vet had us keep Magnus on Mother and Babycat by Royal Canin food rather than the kitten...

    Any Good Tips To Get Your Cats To Eat? Share Them Here!

    I had to toss it through the cats' blender for them to eat it. Now Wureva makes pates and kitten blends that do not look like that. Our cats like the kitten ones.
