    How much to feed calculator?

    I seem to remember seeing a calculator that would give right amounts for dry/wet/homemade food, and my key word guessing is just not working for me. I have the two kittens in my house who I am working with to socialize (the adults are going to be TNR from outside between my house and my...

    TNR? But how to get started

    I have six indoor cats, so adding any more to that is right out. I don't have any more rooms where a litterbox could go, even if I did get a successful introduction (I have one that is only partially successful--Mabel and Cosette most emphatically do not get along, but they each separately get...

    Spaying While In Heat

    My son (who bought a house across the street from me) acquired a young female kitten. Her spay is scheduled for this upcoming Tuesday (tomorrow), but over the weekend she started showing signs of having gone into heat (vocalizations, posturing). As far as I know, there's no reason the spay...

    My New Baby

    This is Mabel. She showed up, bonded with my youngest son on a Friday afternoon. Took her to the vet the following Monday, determined she's FeLV and FIV negative, and pronounced as generally healthy although a little underweight (which we are fixing--de-worming, de-fleaing, and regular meals...

    O Christmas Tree

Quick background--I have 5 cats, four of whom were adopted from the same rescue a couple years ago, and now range in age from 4.5 to 9 (two are at the youngest age, one is believed to be their mother.  None of them are tree climbers. My youngest cat...

    Best "floofy" cat grooming tools

    I have one long-haired (ie floofy) cat who also happens to be my oldest cat (age 8.5 years).  She's just taken a dislike to the brush I had been using (which I had liked for it's easy-to-clean feature).  Not brushing is, of course a really bad idea, but she isn't letting me groom her with the...

    Four years ago today

    I brought my first two cats into the house.  (Argh, don't know how I conflated the fact that they are four years old now with the fact that they were adopted *two* years ago .... must be too early for me to be posting!) Domino, hiding under the stairs.  He did that for quite awhile. Now...

    I sing to my cats ... do you?

    I'm not a talented singer, but I still sing to my cats.  Each one has their own individual song. Cosette: To the tune of the Winnie-the-Pooh theme It's little Cosette, little Cosette, she's my very sweet little kitty.  She's a good cat, her name is Cosette, she's the very sweetest one.  TV...

    How much is too much (weight gain)?

    The youngest of my cats (now at an estimated age of 1 year, give or take a month) arrived definitely underweight.  If you look at that body condition chart, she wasn't quite to emaciated, but you could count the bones in her spine and ribs when you pet her (when she let that happen).  She gained...

    Me--I'm a divorced single mother with four human children (one is off to college and doesn't live with me; one is a senior in HS and then there are twins who are freshmen in HS). I also have five cats. First, I had in mind that I wanted to adopt a tuxedo cat, and in searching around I found a...
