    Fancy Feast Problems

    My cat Whiskey started to refuse to eat FF pates during the last 3-4 weeks, even his favorite flavor “tender liver & chicken”. I thought he just got tired of FF but now reading this thread - it makes much more sense. The reason I started looking for similar experiences from others is that...

    Warm Ears?

    I’m not a vet, but ears as well as nose and paws are areas that help kitty regulate his body temp. You said there is no signs of him being sick and he is playing a lot he is probably hot from all activities. My cat’s ears get warm and then get cool. If he runs around like crazy for half hour his...

    Is Dry Food Necessary?

    It took me about 2 months to get my cat to like brushing, now he wants to be brushed all the time :kneading: I took it slowly, brushed him when he was relaxed and calm, limiting sessions to only few minutes at a time at first, bribed him with treats. Alternating brush strokes with pets also...

    20-30 minutes to wash, 10-15 minutes to brush :insertevillaugh: (with mentioned before ‘Wet Brush’ and some oil like Mortocan Argan oil or similar, really helps with tangles) done once a week or for special outings, the rest of the days 5-7 minutes to brush and braid. I used to be able to wear a...

    Best Raw Food Brand

    To the best of my knowledge Rad Cat is the best, it doesn’t contain any veggies and they use egg shell powder as source of calcium so you don’t have to worry about bone content being too high. It is expensive, though. Primal raw & freeze dried are very popular and quite good.

    Cats Biting

    Sorry, you are having troubles. He is biting because he is declawed. His first line of defence - his claws - has been taken away so the only thing he can do is bite. It’s a very common consequence of declawing. Please, keep him indoors since he can’t defend himself if he ever runs into trouble...
