    How To Improve Digestion?

    I wasn't sure if this belonged here or in the health thread but I need a little help with something. Recently, Fayola has been having bathroom troubles when pooping. She's either constipated or her poops are too soft. Not as firm as before. Same thing is starting to happen to Harvey and Felix...

    Never thought I'd get to do this again...

    I tried to somewhat recreate this old picture of Harvey and I from 2016. This was taken June 4th post-flea bath. And this was this morning... 😂 Can you see the saliva dripping from his mouth??

    Ways to save on cat litter?

    I'm going over my monthly expenses budget because Felix needs another dental and I currently spend ~$68.42 a month for both cat litter and food. I've already cut cost in the food department and I'm wondering now if there are clever ways to make that 40lb bag of clumping litter stretch for 2...

    Digestion Time

    How long does it take for cats stomachs to empty out when fed a wet food diet? Harvey vomits after every meal but only if he's allowed to eat quickly and run like a maniac afterwards. I find myself having to lock him up after every meal because he won't sit still.

    How To Go About This?

    So, as some of you may know, I have a third cat now. And the dynamic has been unusual since he came. There are three cats in this scenario. First of all, Felix is more lenient with Harvey (the new addition). More than any other cat that has ever been in this house at the same time as him. From...

    New Addition Not Eating Or Using Litter Box...

    Is it normal for cats to not eat and not use the litter box in a new environment? I've put Harvey in my room. Fed him yesterday and showed him the little box. He hasn't used it and hasn't touched his food. But he still allows me to pet him and he purrs and turns over for belly rubs. Should I be...

    Cat Aging Anxiety - Anyone Else Experience This?

    This coming August, on the 26th, Felix will be 10 years old. I've had him since I was 11. I am now 21. He was about 4 weeks old when my mom got him for me. He's been there through some of the hardest years of my life. I've noticed that as he gets older, I find myself worrying profusely and...

    Lauric Acid Resistance?

    I'm not sure if this belongs here but I wanted to know if it's possible for fleas to build up resistance to lauric acid. I've been using it for a few years now (coconut oil actually) and it always helps to keep the fleas away. But last year, it took a bit more coconut oil to manage the fleas. I...

    Felix now frequently pooping on the floor...

    Before, he would just do it once in a while and now his pooping outside of the litter box has become a habit. He'll do it in our beds or by the back door. His litter boxes are clean and he had full access to them yet he still continues to do this. I'm scared he won't stop and I have no idea...

    Cat Colours Generations Passed

    Is is possible to look at a cat's coloration and make an accurate prediction on what their mother and/or father looked like? For example, Felix has the van cat pattern (but he isn't a van cat) and so does his alleged mother. I say alleged now because is it even possible for a cat with the van...

    Driving Everybody Nuts...

    I don't know if I posted about this here before. At first, it was a funny little thing my mom and I laughed about but now it's starting to become an issue. Felix is constantly dragging clothing around the house. Every. Single. Day. We've had to lock our room doors because we always come home to...

    How To Handle Jealousy?

    I'm just wondering if anyone has had experience with cats lashing out and fighting each other when they are jealous of which one is getting more attention from their care giver? Felix and Fayola get along better than I thought. Felix even tries to play with her but whenever she gets close to...

    Everyone's an elf this year - including me. I have an elf outfit but didn't want to get into it. Enjoy the animals though!

    Eating My Finger and Other Weird Habits

    I'm wondering if anyone has a former feral that tries to eat your fingers? Fayola has been doing this a lot. I'm not sure if she understands what fingers are but sometimes, she'll try to eat mine. Is this normal? It usually happens when I have a little oil on my fingers or when I'm hand...

    Life's Betta With A Fish

    Hello, everyone! Thank you for taking the time to open this thread and read my post - much appreciated. I've decided that after years of being fish less, I'd really love to own fish again. More specifically, male betta fish. I've made a list of supplies and everything is in order except for...

    Domestic Life Feeling Really Good Right Now!

    Fayola has been in my lap for hours. I made a cup of tea and took her up. I've been working on my laptop and she's just sleeping so peacefully. Every time I think about where she is coming from and how far she has made it, it makes me smile. She deserves and world and then some. Love you...

    Cat Wants No Glop!

    Wasn't sure if this belonged in nutrition or behaviour... I realized that wet food for me is more expensive by itself so I had to come up with a solution. I decided to blend one 125g can of my cats wet food with half a cup of dry food. That way, it stretches. So, instead of feeding two cans a...

    Eye Discharge - Epiphora or Something Else?

    Fayola's eyes have been running a thick mucus like substance since I captured her this July. It's not as bad as it was when I took her in but it hasn't stopped. When she was at the vet, she did receive a round of antibiotics but it hasn't helped with her eyes at all. The vet didn't really say...
