    New to putting cat on diet

    Ok thank you! I’ll weigh her at least twice per week just to keep an eye on it. I guess having to add in a few extra calories would be a good problem to have!

    New to putting cat on diet

    Hello! I just started my cat on Purina Overweight Management. She’s always eaten wet and dry food, so I thought I’d continue that. I figured out how many calories she needs to eat per day for weight loss. She can have one 5.5 oz can plus 48 grams of dry food per day. I was worried about...

    Best wet food for weight loss?

    I just started my cat on a diet a few days ago. I decided to go with Purina Overweight Management prescription food, I just order it at Chewy with a prescription from the vet. After reading reviews, people said their cats preferred the OM over the Science Diet stuff. Purina tells you how many...

    Should I just give up on feeding ferals?

    Thank you for the good advice!! I’m slowly moving my feeding station further down into the woods, it seems to have calmed the chaos in the morning with the raccoon running all over the yard. You’re right, she has babies with her! I’m slowly trying to get closer to the more tame kitty, he is...

    Should I just give up on feeding ferals?

    Thanks everyone! Well Day 1 didn’t go well, I was going to wait until later to put the food out but one of the old ferals started heading up to the house. Then the new feral and the raccoon were thinking about it too! So I thought well, I’ll just put food out and they’ll eat and all go away...

    Should I just give up on feeding ferals?

    I have the same feeling, that maybe this one could have a home. But what if I domesticate it more and can’t find a home? I can’t keep it, my 20 yr old cat just passed away and I still have another former feral that I did take in. Someone at work said their parents might need a barn cat (they...

    Should I just give up on feeding ferals?

    I know there’s enough for them to hunt because sometimes I won’t see the other two for months! I am SO curious who TNR’d this new one that showed up. The other ones that I have are way more wild, I can’t get anywhere near them. But this new one is young and I can tell it’s very friendly but I...

    Should I just give up on feeding ferals?

    I’ve been feeding ferals in my yard for about 8 years without too many problems. This year I have groundhogs, raccoons and a new feral driving me crazy and I’m wondering if I should just stop for awhile. The raccoon is getting really bold and comes after me when I have food and it’s around...

    Injured Feral

    Hi everyone, Just wanted to let you know the bad news that the kitty didn’t make it. The vet said he had a fractured leg, broken pelvis and dislocated hip and that was just without an X-ray. He had to be put down. I’m so sad and sick about it, but at least he’s not suffering in the woods...

    Injured Feral

    Great news, I caught the cat!!! Wanted to save you the trouble of writing another message. He/she is safe in a dog cage with litter pan, food and water for now. Might be a few days before I can get it looked at, but it’ll be ok right? Probably needs to rest that leg anyway. Thank you SO much...

    Injured Feral

    Sorry I keep writing but I don’t have anyone else to ask, I’m driving my friends nuts with this! I’m starting to cave and put food out once in awhile because I feel bad for the other ferals. I’m working 7am to 3pm this week. I know I can’t set the trap but should I put food out in the morning...

    Injured Feral

    Wow, thank you so much for all of the advice! I've TNR'd about 5 cats before and always had good luck with getting them right away. You're right, they are all different. I do usually put the trap out days ahead of time (rigged to stay open) so they get used to it. And I never leave it set...

    Injured Feral

    Thank you so much! I won’t give up yet but haven’t seen him all day. I might try ditching the tuna- I had trapped one previously that wouldn’t go in for the tuna, but as soon as I put the regular food in he fell for it! Good thinking. I appreciate all of the hints! Not sure what I’ll do when...

    Injured Feral

    One of my feral cats has an injured back leg that it’s not using at all. This one hasn’t been trapped before, I just tried trapping it but it wouldn’t go in the trap and hobbled away. I don’t know what else to do, I want to take it to a vet but how can I catch it? It was starting to come...

    Free Feeding One Fat Cat/One Skinny

    I have a 15 yr old skinny cat with hyperthyroidism that only eats dry and has free fed his entire life. Now I've also brought in a young, former feral that is getting obese! She will eat ANYTHING, canned and dry. I give her some canned because they say all dry is bad, but then she chows...

    Birds eating all of the cat food!

    Thanks for the ideas! I did some reading last night and found an old thread from here, it doesn't look promising. People have tried everything! I am leaning towards some kind of covered box with a flap- we'll see if they use it. 128522

    Birds eating all of the cat food!

    I've been feeding a small group of ferals down by my woods for almost two years. They are not tame enough to come running when I put the food out. There is always a bowl of cat chow down there, so they come by at their leisure. I also put canned out when it's not too cold but now in the...

    Young cat terrorizing my older cat

    I've tried wearing her out with toys, I have so many! All of those kinds. I can't get her to the point of really getting tired like Jackson Galaxy suggests. Just last night she was laying on the floor sleeping and Henry walked by and didn't see her at first. As soon as he did, he just...
