    Cat Not Eating Or Using Litter Box

    My spouse and I had a very short talk, his idea to keep it short. He says that in the future we will only visit their house. If our friends ask to visit us, he says he will tell them that we prefer to visit them at their house. He will not agree to handle this issue properly. Peaches is sipping...

    Cat Not Eating Or Using Litter Box

    Jen, silkenpaw and neely, Thank you for the reinforcement. You think just as I do. But I cannot make my husband believe that I am being reasonable and our guests are not. The dog is shut up in the bedroom with the guests and they are leaving tomorrow. I have taken water and dry food to her...

    Cat Not Eating Or Using Litter Box

    We have house guests that brought their dog with them. The dog hates all cats. My husband says that we have to welcome our guests regardless of how the dog reacts to our cat, Peaches aged 11 months. Peaches has not eaten or used the litter box for 48 hours, except for 2 meat stick treats...

    Drinking Fountain Recommendations

    My concern with an exposed submersible pump is having my cat seeing the water come up from the pump and taking the pump to be a play toy. Having a covered pump makes me more secure in not having the pump removed by kitty to play with. Kitties just love following anything that has movement.

    Drinking Fountain Recommendations

    The Pioneer Pet stainless steel BigMax fountain is the preferred fountain at our house. We originally purchased a plastic bubble up fountain. It was hard to keep clean and our pet had to stand to drink. We replaced it with the Pioneer Pet BigMax. The pet can either sit or stand to drink...

    I would like to know how to add a new Cat Page. I added one several years ago, and cannot find where to add a new one. Thanks so much for any help.

    On October 3, 2017, Angel had to be put to sleep. In the preceding 12 months, she developed several health issues that were too overwhelming to overcome at her age. My vet stated that he believed that Angel was closer to 6 years, rather than the 2.5 years, when she came to us. We miss her...

    what's your favorite cat litter?

    I am pleased to say that Angel and I are both still happy with the A&H Super Scoop.  By the way, she was diagnosed with Hyperthyroid two and a half months ago.  She is now on Methimazole twice daily.  Although her litter habits improved considerably with treatment, she was still using urine to...

    what's your favorite cat litter?

    I tried to find one of the Dr Elsey's litter's in our area, but without success.  I bought another of the suggested litters, the Arm & Hammer Super Scoop Unscented and have used this for two days. I am seeing a huge difference.  I have a few grains of litter just outside of the box and that is...

    what's your favorite cat litter?

    You are so right about the mystery. Tomorrow I am going to a pet store that has Dr. Elsey's Precious Cat Ultra and I have already found the rebate form. If that brand doesn't work for us, I will next try Arm & Hammer Super Scoop Unscented. Thank you so much.

    what's your favorite cat litter?

    Yes, I wish Angel would just tell me what litter comfort she wants the most. I have ruled out the scent, by putting out two boxes. Old location - new litter, new location old litter. She let me know that would use the new litter, if she felt like going down the stairs, but refused the old...

    what's your favorite cat litter?

    Orange&White: I cannot be sure of every place on her body that it is sticking, as she is a long hair. I know that litter is sticking to her paws and rear, so I take her to for a "manicure" and sani-shave every couple of months. Her last appointment was yesterday. I see a less drop off today...

    what's your favorite cat litter?

    Thank you very much to everyone for the suggestions. I will definitely consider the Primo Trapper Mat. I have a Dirt Devil Extreme Power hand-held vac that I use for quick litter clean-ups around the mat. The issue is that the Fresh Step litter is sticking to Angel's fur. The litter drops on...

    Free sounds great, as finicky as cats are. And the manufacturer appears to be confident with their product. Thanks for the recommendation.
