    How much to spend on a wedding present (and a rant)

    Thanks all - I totally agree that it's about celebration. I've gone the champagne route in the past for similar situations, but this case it's a little touchy as the groom is a recovering alcoholic with about 5 years of sobriety under his belt (woo hoo!!) It was a dry wedding (this past...

    How much to spend on a wedding present (and a rant)

    Here's a question along the same lines - how much do you spend on a wedding gift for a couple who are BOTH entering a second marriage? The couple have been living together for some time and each have children from a previous marriage. One big blended Brady Bunch family with 5 kids combined...

    Peeeeeeeee-yooooooooooooooo!!!!!

    Thanks all. After a weekend of introducing some really good high quality wet food in addition to her regular dry food, I've already noticed a big difference in Dusty's "output". It's still a bit smelly, but nowhere near as bad as it was. Thanks for the info re blood in the urine - definitely...

    Peeeeeeeee-yooooooooooooooo!!!!!

    Clean bill of health includes clean UTI. I specifically wanted to make sure that she was okay before she was brought into the home. She's part of the package deal when my boyfriend moved in with me. My boys were fine and I wanted to make sure that she was as well so there would be any...

    Peeeeeeeee-yooooooooooooooo!!!!!

    Dusty is indeed fixed. We leave water in various places throughout the house so all three beasts can have ready access to water. Any suggestions as to specific wet food? Thought I'd go with science diet for senior kitties.

    Kitty Cold War

    Okay, so I posted some time ago about issues with the introduction and re-introduction of Dusty (female 9 year old) to my existing boys (Moe, 6 and Chester, 5) and the lack of peace, love and grooviness amongst these cohabitating kitties. It's been 3-1/2 months since Dusty aka the Grey Pisser...

    Peeeeeeeee-yooooooooooooooo!!!!!

    Holy stinky ammonia, batman!! Dusty, 9 year old girl, recently brought into the home to live in Cold War-like peace with my two boys, has stinky ammonia pee! She's using the box, drinking and eating no problem. I noticed her stinky pee right from the get-go. The boys have never had any...

    Cornering Kitty!!

    Thanks Goldycat and Breelablue for your input - I have three covered litter boxes, none of which have a door and they were all going into each other's boxes with no problems at all. What is interesting is I realized yesterday that right around the time that Dusty started having litter issues...

    Cornering Kitty!!

    Ah yes - the "time out" - Chester is very familiar with the "time out"! I think Chester is not so much of a bully as he is confused by this interloper who challenges his alpha status! Dusty had a good day in protective custody yesterday (and no litter box mishaps) and Chester and Moe were...

    Cornering Kitty!!

    Hey gang - It's been a long time since I've been to TCS and I'm back looking for help. I'm sure that there must be similar posts in both "behaviour" and/or "introducing new kitty" but I'm not finding specifically what I need. Here's the deal. I have two cats, Chester and Moe. Chester is a...

    Extra Fibre for Kitty?

    Hey there - One of my cats has decided that he likes chewing on lettuce and grape stems. I can't imagine that this would be bad for him, but I'd appreciate any feedback. He's also a big fan of yogurt. Any flavour, any brand, any kind - I can barely get the container away from him. Stefaroo

    New Kitty Litter Box

    Just an update from my last posting yesterday. It would seem that my concern about Chester adapting to a new type of litter box was well-founded. It seems that the little bugger has decided that peeing on (or under) the bathmats in my bathroom is preferable to using his litterbox. He did it...

    New Kitty Litter Box

    Thanks to everybody for their suggestions. I went out and got Chester a new spaceship covered kitty litter box and he had no problems adapting at all. And of course, Moe thought it was pretty cool and decided that his open litter box just wasn't going to do anymore, so I now have two matching...

    New Kitty Litter Box

    Thanks everyone for their suggestions. I had already pretty much decided that I would get a new "high-sided/spaceship" litter box for Chester and just wondered really, if anybody had any experience with their furball having difficulties adapting to a new litterbox, seeing as how they're such...
