    Kitten About to be Spayed But Vaccine Reaction

    any holistic vets in your area? they would have good suggestions. My thought's would be top quality food, homemade if possible and probiotics. Some holistic vets recommend fermented goat milk as a probiotic supplement.

    Kitten About to be Spayed But Vaccine Reaction

    Just for me personally. . .I would do the spay, but not the booster. There is evidence to suggest that most of the benefits of the vaccine can be found in the dose that happens around the 4-5 month age. I can link you to an article. And cats that have had a previous reaction, shouldn't be...

    Can we talk catios?!!!

    good thought about the AC unit. . . and yes I"m thinking of something similar sized. . .the plans I were looking at were for 7x3x8. we don't have much of a yard to begin with so just something for them to enjoy some fresh air and some extra mental stimulation.

    Can we talk catios?!!!

    thank you so much!!!! I would love to see pictures of your plans funnily enough as I was talking to my hubby ab out it, he suggested exactly what you have that we use the window closest to the porch and extend the catio to be also under our porch. that way we retain more of our view and also...

    Can we talk catios?!!!

    well that is certainly out of our league!!! LOL but very impressive! Do your cats ever even want to be indoors with you?

    Also, we have a neighbor cat that hangs out in our yard with some regularity. . .do you think this is going to be a problem once my cats are out there in a catio?

    Can we talk catios?!!!

    I did a really fancy mark up to show you where I think the catio would go. 😂 No problem removing those bushes. What do people do for the “floor”?

    Can we talk catios?!!!

    So here’s the only place we’d be able to add a Catio. It’s a large panel of windows (8’6” tall by 10’wide) and hubby would rather it not be in front of all three windows. So I was thinking of having it be about 6’6” wide and cover two of the windows. I feel it would be better if the frame fell...

    Can we talk catios?!!!

    I wasn't sure where to put this thread. . .but my husband gave me the green light to start planning for a smallish catio. Yay!!! I'm really excited. . .I am committed to keeping my cats indoors, but I love the idea of giving them safe access to some outside. I've been looking at...

    Broken whiskers?

    Thanks everyone! It bothers me, but doesn’t seem to bother him. So I guess I won’t worry too much. I don’t know if he other cat is eating them or it’s just rough play breaking them. I haven’t ever caught her chewing his whiskers, but she does groom him and they do wrestle hard!

    Broken whiskers?

    I have two kittens, 5 months and 8 months. I’ve been noticing lately that the younger always has broken/short whiskers on one side. What’s going on here? The other cat has full lovely whiskers. Is she nibbling his whiskers off? I tried to photograph it. He has almost no full size whiskers...

    Help Describe My New Kitty

    She's a beautiful dilute tortie!! I love that coloring. Torties are very fun cats and are often described as having "tortitude" which my tortie certainly has! :)

    Kitten breed

    My 5 mo kitten had blue eyes till 7 weeks (I knew his foster mom and saw pics of him starting at 3weeks old), but by the time he came home with me at 9 weeks they were grey. They are now the most intriguing amber brown color. They changed very slowly from blue to grey to the brown/gold they are...
