    How to motivate Terra the Cat to be active in her play?

    I’m trying to play with Terra the Cat on the lower level of my house to build her confidence in going there by herself. However, my roommate is usually playing his PS5 in the living room with Riggs the Dog slouched down on the couch behind him, so I have to play with her in the kitchen. My...

    How can I play video games in peace and protect my headset cord?

    Well, I finally got to the Petco and pick Terra up a Cat Dancer, Da Bird, and some chicken treats. Terra absolutely LOVED her new treats, and I’ve had to hide the bag to keep her from trying to get more. Da Bitd has always been Terra’s most loved toy ever since she was a kitten, and will play...

    How can I play video games in peace and protect my headset cord?

    I don’t think garlic would be a good idea for Terra due to the fac that: A: Garlic is EXTREMELY toxic to cats. B: Terra absolutely LOVES the smell of Italian food, and has tried to sneak tastes of pizza when I order it. It also doesn’t help that Terra’s favorite people foods are ice cream and...

    How can I play video games in peace and protect my headset cord?

    Terra the Cat is absolutely fascinated by the cord to my expensive new headset, and wants nothing more than to chew on it. Is there anyway I can train Terra to leave to cord alone without yelling at her or otherwise being mean? I woild be apprehensive about coating the cord in lemon juice, as...

    How can I play video games in peace and protect my headset cord?

    Yeah, when I lived on my own, I had a wand toy called Da Bird that was easily Terra’s favorite toy. When I went legally blind and had to move into supportive care, I lost Da Bird. Hopefully, my guy can give me a ride to the Prtco this weekend so I can get her a new one.

    How can I play video games in peace and protect my headset cord?

    So I’m a PC gamer, and Terra the Cat has always enjoyed watching me play. However, I recently purchased a new gaming headset, and Terra is beyond fascinated by the cord, and always wants to chew on it, paw at it, or walk in front of the screen to play with it. Terra will follow me wherever I go...

    Best times to feed a cat?

    Thanks for the advice guys! I decided to split Terra’s 2/3 of a cup of food a day across 4 mealimes: Half her breakfast at 6 AM and the other hslf at 8 AM. Then, lunch at 4 PM (will move it back to 3 next week) and dinner at 9. The transition wasn’t an issue as I have Terra trained to associate...

    Best times to feed a cat?

    Ever since I first got her as a kitten, I’ve fed Terra the Cat twice a day, but have been thinking of transitioning her to 3 means a day, as she can get rather surly about an hour before her PM meal at 5. My question for you is when should I be feeding Terra her lucj and dinner? She seems good...

    Roommate wants Terra the Cat to “relearn” to use litter box

    Riggs the Dog is an Old English Bulldog, and as such has a genetic condition that makes him a stinky doggy. There aren’t a whole ton of places for Terra to get vertical, but I do have a cat tower in my room for her. She spends most of her time in my room, but most of her spots are in the...

    Roommate wants Terra the Cat to “relearn” to use litter box

    To whomever suggested to be certain the dog didn’t do it, I’m positive he didn’t. Cat urine has an acrid smell to it that dog urine doesn’t, and my roommate says it definitely smells like cat urine. Getting a backup litter box might be a good idea. The only place I can think toput it is my...

    Roommate wants Terra the Cat to “relearn” to use litter box

    I actually used to have a sifter box, but it broke.Terra DOES use her littr-robot, and seems to enjoy always having a fresh, clean place to poop. Admittedly ,I need to do a better job of staying on top of it, but I’m positive that there’s more to this than a dirty litter box. Keeping on top of...

    Roommate wants Terra the Cat to “relearn” to use litter box

    i just spokr with my roommate, and it seems she has a habit of peeing outside the litter box (far more than s dirty litter box would suggest) which makes me think there’s more to this than just a dirty litter box. Terra had her yearly vet appointment about a month and a half ago and received a...

    Roommate wants Terra the Cat to “relearn” to use litter box

    Thanks for the feedback, guys! I will pass the hamper advice onto my roommate. He can be very stubborn and resistant to change (he’s 24 and I’m 38) but if all rlse fails, I can ask his mother to hammer home the point.

    Roommate wants Terra the Cat to “relearn” to use litter box

    Typically, when Terra’s litter box goes without being changed for too long, she will pee on my roommate’s clothes (hich he kerps in a pile in the laundry room). I recently got a litter-robot for Terra as I am bad about keeping a regular litter box. I am also legally blind and can’t always see...

    Should I be feeding Terra the Cat wet food?

    I’ve been feeding Terra Iams her entire life at her vet’s recommendation, but having some experience with protuct sales and promotion, I know thst Iams is owned by Proctor and Gamble, which makes me think they are using less than healthy ingredients to cut costs. I lnow that many of you swear by...
