    Litter Box Issue

    What is he being treated for? Sometimes diarrhea can cause cats to not make it to the box in time. Make sure you clean the carpet and furniture well, just the smell being in the carpet or furniture can attract him back to the spot. They sell cleaning products at the pet store that have enzymes...

    Stressful Kitten/cat Introduction, Cat Anxiety And Spraying

    Hugpooky, thanks so much for the helpful advice. I never thought that all would be resolved so easily by relocating the litterboxes but Treasure has not sprayed my bed since I have put a litterbox next to it. Also interesting to see that since moving the litterboxes and spreading them out...

    Stressful Kitten/cat Introduction, Cat Anxiety And Spraying

    I use clay litter and plastic totes. They are all solid colors. The totes have sides about 8" high and are all about the same size, not very large they are about 16x16" and 14x16" Two of my cats will not use anything but the clay litter. When Treasure was a kitten I used to use fine litter that...

    Stressful Kitten/cat Introduction, Cat Anxiety And Spraying

    It is interesting that you mention the litter boxes because even though I have so many litter boxes one of the things that has been an issue with the kittens is that they like to play in the litter. When I first clean the boxes and put fresh litter in them, sometimes the kittens will even try to...

    Stressful Kitten/cat Introduction, Cat Anxiety And Spraying

    It has been a while since I have been on here since I didn't have internet in my house for several months so a few quick updates on my cat household: In January I took in a pregnant cat named Stormy. She and her kittens stayed with me until the end of May but had their own room and during this...

    Took in a cat a couple weeks ago not sure if she is pregnant

    I moved them to a bigger box with a heating pad underneath a towel on the bottom. Stormy (mom) did not like the plastic bin and immediately moved the kittens back but seems happy in the new box. They are so adorable

    Took in a cat a couple weeks ago not sure if she is pregnant

    The box is in the corner of my extra bedroom been keeping her in there away from my other 4 cats. I can put a heating pad on the bottom of the box but I wasn't sure if it was a good idea to move the kittens so I can put it in there. Going to get a larger box for them. I don't have a dog crate...

    Took in a cat a couple weeks ago not sure if she is pregnant

    They seem to be nursing well, they are all nursing at the same time and are all about the same size. It does seem that the box is a little small for her and the kittens though. Would it be possible for me to give her a bigger box or will she want to keep the kittens where they are? It also seems...
