    I am on making this thread because my cat is eating weird little fibers, although she eats primarily dry food which is the best food available. What amt of fiber should it have? thx

    Kitty Eating/Pulling Up Carpet

    This thread is so great. I started reading bc my cat has just been trying to chew on fibers on the couch - just started - then threw up several hours later. She has thrown up before and I've seen her try to chew on my hair but not on the couch fibers. I don't think her breath is bad. She did...

    Hi! If my cat has another litter, will existing 2 kittens in family (then would be about 7 mos.) attack new kittens?

    Also, I would love for her to be able to go outside in a catio (I bought her a harness for walks but then she got pregnant so I haven't used it). The sooner she gets out of the heat the sooner I can try to get her outside safely. I also want to spare her any additional discomfort from being in...

    She is just a gorgeous cat; and, yes, then the heat thing would stop. After the next birthing cycle I would be able to make an advance spay apptmt bc covid wouldn't have just begun.

    Hi! If my cat has another litter, will existing 2 kittens in family (then would be about 7 mos.) attack new kittens?

    ok, so when i made the apptmt it was over a mo. now it's 2.5 weeks. but i really don't think i can last that long. Our cat must have very very good hormones. I am not getting much sleep at all. Everything else is going by the wayside. Of course we are keeping her indoors, and I am not even sure...

    Hi! If my cat has another litter, will existing 2 kittens in family (then would be about 7 mos.) attack new kittens?

    A quick shout out to Di and Bob, as well -- did the existing kittens seem to have any aggrression towards the new kittens? I am also wondering re the aggression of mother cats that you mentioned bc as I discussed in a prev. post when male returned from vet from being neutered both other female...

    Hi everyone who has replied thank you so! Vyger - I love the fact that you are taking care of all of these cats/kittens and ensuring that they go to good homes. It is really very difficult to deal with a cat in heat when appmt time even now still 2.5 weeks away. I get only a few hrs sleep per...

    Help! Brought 4 - month old kitten back from being neutered and now his mom/sister keep hissing at him =

    thank you for all replies! mom still hissing @ both kittens -- I think bc she wants to mate and wants them out of the way? I will start another thread but am wondering if she does have another litter will the current kittens leave new kittens alone? Current kittens would be about 7 mos. old. Thx.

    Help! Brought 4 - month old kitten back from being neutered and now his mom/sister keep hissing at him =

    no, she hasn't been spayed yet. I have an apptmt but bc of covid backup not till mid aug. She is such a gorgeous cat I might wish her to have 1 more litter, but unsure how to do it without just letting her out back door. .I'm sure I could find homes for all,and whomever owns the male she mates...

    Help! Brought 4 - month old kitten back from being neutered and now his mom/sister keep hissing at him =

    Thanks, all. The other problem I have is keeping the cone on. I got a soft cone from the vet and kitten has managed to get it off each time. He's bounding and leaping all over the place. He has finally started to play with his sister and I think things got too rough because he retreated and...

    I've never seen anything like it. Mom is now hissing at her daughter as well. Male neutered kitten seems befuddled. What to do? Thanks!

    Hi! If my cat has another litter, will existing 2 kittens in family (then would be about 7 mos.) attack new kittens?

    Hi! . Kittens now are 4.5 mos. old. In part because, due to covid, it's taking so long to get a spay apptmt and in the meantime my cat has heat symptoms, I am wondering if I let her have 1 more litter, will the pre-existing kittens find the newly-hatched kittens and paw them/attack/interfere...

    Spaying a cat: actual research showing the pros/cons? Experiences with low-cost spay clinics as opposed to private vets?

    Hi; thanks again! I certainly don't want to be a professional breeder; I just mean, what if you wanted a cat to have one litter before spaying them; how would you do it? How have others done it? Without just letting them out, which is dangerous? And, again, although I'm sure this is not always...

    Spaying a cat: actual research showing the pros/cons? Experiences with low-cost spay clinics as opposed to private vets?

    Thank you so so much! I did email the clinic and ask some of the detailed ? per the above - like I literally went to the response and cut/pasted into the email! I haven't checked on the AAHA accreditation, though. But I do have one more ? - that is, I would feel better about cutting off her...
