    Spoilt kibble? (with a picture)

    This isn't a regular petstore, it's a local branch of the company (Farmina) that distributes their brand to regular petshops in the region I live in. Basically there's nowhere else I can buy, b\c every petshop in my city and other cities around it orders from them! All I can do is order online...

    Spoilt kibble? (with a picture)

    A while ago I ordered my cat's favorite kibble, and when it arrived it was strange. Small particles were all over it, and it was almost wet to the touch, due to the particles sticking all over it. The cat still liked it. The package was not damaged in any way, and the expiration date was year...

    How can I teach a cat to pick up food with her teeth?

    Thanks to English not being my first language, I initially misinterpreted what 'pate' is. Now I looked it up only to find out that I already tried pates, and my cat was very frustrated with them and eventually refused to eat them. She licked and licked, but it was very hard to lick anything up...

    How can I teach a cat to pick up food with her teeth?

    It didn't occur to me to try blending wet food! A good idea for sure. That sounds like something to try, indeed. Might help a little. We were told that she ate kibble along with her mom by the owner, however, when we gave her the very same kibble she acted like she didn't know how to eat it...

    How can I teach a cat to pick up food with her teeth?

    Hello! Since kittenhood my cat had a peculiar problem: she doesn't know how to pick up food with her teeth in order to eat. What she does instead is lick her food in order to acrobatically put it into her mouth with her tongue. Naturally, that doesn't work too well. I must stress that there is...

    Ultrasonic teeth cleaning - is sedation required?

    My cat has to undergo the ultrasonic cleaning, however, vet clinics in my city have different opinions about whether sedation is required. Those that say it is make a convincing argument, they say that without sedation such a procedure would be badly done and merely cosmetic, but I'm no expert...

    How do you introduce a new kitten to a cat in my circumstances?

    For now I decided not to adopt that kitten, after all, and I already told the owner. Having doubts is not a good sign when adopting a kitten. But we're keeping in touch with the owner, maybe later when she has new kittens I'll change my mind. I'm going to read a book I've found on how to make...

    How do you introduce a new kitten to a cat in my circumstances?

    No worries, I got to your post late, as well. Mostly because I didn't know if I'd be adopting that kitten, but now I know I will be, in about a few days, we've agreed on everything with the owner. Just now, in fact, on the phone. But could you please clarify this: What did you mean by playing...

    Bengal cats and food questions

    I was told outright that Eka will have a 'full package' of documents. Honestly I wouldn't care even if Eka had no documents, I'm not into her because she's a Bengal, I just liked the kitten very much when I got acquainted with her. I guess I'm a sucker for kittens. :) Maybe I should go see...

    Bengal cats and food questions

    What do you mean? Is there no way to know what? :) I'm a bit lost ;) I wonder if an adult Bengal is going to eat twice as much as a normal cat, or only as a kitten? I still have hope that somehow it doesn't eat that much as an adult and so I'll be able to feed it plenty :) Her mom didn't look...

    Bengal cats and food questions

    Thanks a lot for your reply! The kitten should be legit, both parents live with her (so I've seen them), belong to a club and have the papers. She is vaccinated and soon to be neutered. The owner isn't charging a lot of money, though, she's just looking for kind people who're going to love the...

    Bengal cats and food questions

    I don't know much about the breed, but I'm planning to possibly adopt a Bengal kitten. I visited her yesterday at home, and the owner told me that Bengals can only eat food with 70-80% protein, otherwise they poo a lot (?!) and have other digestion problems. Also she said that they eat a lot...

    Can a vaccinated cat visiting an infected place carry the infection back home to other cats?

    I'm really tempted to take in a kitten for good, with no return condition, and then rely on you guys to help me teach them to get along. :) And in fact today I've given in to temptation and visited a potential kitten at her home. She's an extremely playful Bengal of 3.5 months and I liked her a...

    How do you introduce a new kitten to a cat in my circumstances?

    Thank you for advise and links! Today I went to see our potential kitten. She is a lively Bengal, 3.5 months at the moment and will be spayed in a few days. She seems very inquisitive, somewhat bossy and totally unafraid of strangers. She just keeps running and running around. It's a big...
