    5-6 Week Old Stray

    Oh and if giving her dry food … make sure it’s soaked in water. This is also a good way of ensuring some water intake, and she’s too young to chew the dry food right now anyway

    One Has To Go.....Sandwiches!

    Tomatoes or eggs can go. This was surprisingly easy

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

    Locking her in your room isn't going to help her 're-learn' anything and she will have no idea of why she's being punished anyway. Get your roommate to get his laundry off the floor - humans have to adjust their ways to animals too, it's not only up to the animals to do all the 'learning' and...

    5-6 Week Old Stray

    I got Uno off the streets at the same age ~6 weeks and he was pretty malnourished too. You're doing well. Keep in mind it's a strange new environment, it might be that she takes a day or two to get used to food and water bowls and starts using them a bit more regularly (the water specially)...

    Ear mites or just dirty?

    My Uno came from the streets, and had a much worse case of mites - this looks like it's the start of ear mites (uno's ears looked like this after a few cleanings) so hopefully you've caught it just in time. agree with what @tabbytom has said. In addition to having the vet do a cleaning, ask if...

    When to get new cat

    I love them!!! Burrito her all you need ... I had to do that all the time with Uno, to give him his meds. Your older cat will get around to bonding with her new companion in time. Don't rush it ... and TRY not to let them get into an actual fight. Separate them before they start fighting if...

    When to get new cat

    While there’s no rules on when is the ‘right’ time to get another cat, it’s usually the case that younger cats adjust easier to having a new playmate and companion. The older the cat, the higher the chance of them being territorial or resenting any change to their established way of life. If...

    Show Us Your Cats Together

    Uno and Bandit. One week into meeting each other and they can’t stop chasing around the house! This is a rare moment when they were still enough to actually be photographed.

    Hi Everyone, meet Uno and Dos

    "Cats are like chips, you can't have just one" - Someone wise, probably. When I first got Uno in January.... Someone rightly commented about how there might be a Dos soon. :D I didn't think I could handle two cats living alone, but ... ummm ... here we are. :blush::flail: Meet ... Dos...

    How to teach kitten that the bed is not a playground?

    Somewhat similar to what the others on this thread are saying. When I got Uno he was barely 6 weeks old and flatly refused to sleep anywhere but with me on the bed. and I had a studio apartment so there was no real question of restricting his access to it. there were literally no doors. What...

    Is it safe to transport a young kitten internationally?

    Ok that's good to know - at least that specific thing is not a barrier then.

    Is it safe to transport a young kitten internationally?

    Quandary: I found Uno 2.5 months ago, and it was a completely unplanned adoption. He was about 6 weeks at the time, so that makes him about 4 months old right now (approximate age, since we had no way of finding out) Another unplanned scenario: I may have to move back to my home country in the...

    Horrible Attack

    I'm no expert either, but from all that I've read/ heard and your account, it does seem like he was scared of something and lashed out - because right before, he was engaging in absolutely normal behaviour i.e. sleeping with you as he normally would. Sending lots of love and hugs to both of you...
