    Silver vine / catnip: how often is too often

    This is a good question that I've also been researching, have wondered because my kitty always prefers to eat dried catnip rather than roll around in it. Maybe if there's a scientist on this forum, they could help explain! I've been reading about differences of "phenol" which is in pine...

    Root canal

    Oh absolutely, if it's an extraction needed then I'm not going to wait... Just am hoping xrays show it's something that can be healed without an extraction, will see what Dr says after getting a good look in there during sedation.

    Root canal

    I actually appreciate all the detail :) That's exactly what the plan is, making an appointment with general vet for cleaning and getting on waitlist for specialist as backup...here's hoping. 🤞

    What’s the best pet insurance?

    Hi suzeanna, would you be willing to share an update on how the process went with Pumpkin insurance? I was thinking to sign up with them this week but am so confused with who to finally choose, as each company has features I like and don't like. This has been harder than choosing insurance for...

    Root canal

    Appreciate your message, it has been a stressful past few weeks trying to find a solution for him. So far the only specialists in vicinity are a 6.5 month wait :( It looks like I need to take him to the general vet for a dental cleaning under anesthesia and hope what is found can be treated...

    Root canal

    Thanks for sharing that, sorry to hear root canals aren't a permanent solution. Good to hear the extraction didn't reduce your cat's quality of life though...personally I get more nervous about dentals for my boy than for myself! Now am wondering if the lack of info about other teeth means it...

    Root canal

    Hi, has anyone here had experience with or know of a cat getting a root canal to a premolar, or is it only possible for the canines? I've been having trouble finding the info online for cats. One of my boy's premolars looks to need attention, and I'm looking for possible alternatives to an...

    Cat vomiting from food she’s been eating previously

    Thanks for sharing your info! The Lamb/salmon flavor is one that mine hasn't tried yet---he's had a regurgitation issue so we're being cautious about trying too many variations right away. In the past he didn't do great with pet-grade salmon in general (responded well to human-grade wild salmon...

    Cat vomiting from food she’s been eating previously

    Hi Catmom, may I ask, how is your cat doing on the Feline Natural canned food now? I recently had to switch mine from a raw diet to canned, so have been feeing him this brand for a couple of months. It seems high quality and so far he's doing good on it, I only wonder over time if he'll have a...

    Feline Natural Canned Food

    Hi, I see this is an older thread, but I’m wondering how your cats’ health has been over the years if still feeding them the Feline Natural canned food? I’ve never fed my cat food with fish as a prominent ingredient for a long time, because of concerns over contamination—am curious if any...

    Has Anyone Heard of Capilex Soft Treat Chews for Hairballs?

    Thanks so much Paul1 for posting the Capilex link, so helpful! I was just able to place an order, my cat has been using Capilex for a couple of years and our vet office stopped selling it, had no idea where to find this--haven't found it anywhere else online or around where I live. For...

    Safe Mosquito Repellent

    Hi all, Thanks for starting this thread, I also walk my cat on a leash and am concerned about him getting heartworm from mosquito bites. Have you ever heard about catnip as a mosquito repellant? I’ve been growing fresh catnip at home, the plan is to attach some springs of it to my boy’s harness...

    Attacked while ending walks with harness

    Hi everyone, I want to thank you again for all the great suggestions :)  Have an update, since beginning this post, I’ve taken my ginger out 5 times. He still growls at me when time to return home, but happy to say the last 3 times, no attacks. Here’s what was different: 1. I’ve been walking...

    Attacked while ending walks with harness

    Hi Amanda, so sorry to hear about the loss of your cat :( Thanks to you he was able to have a loving home & still experience the outdoors, you gave him a good life. Those photos are precious. This is why I'm trying so hard to make this work, can't stand the thought of my guy spending his...

    Attacked while ending walks with harness

    Hi, I’ve been using the Pet Gear Jogger No-Zip Pet stroller…I don’t jog lol  but the tires on this are great, they’re large so it gives a smoother ride on the bumpy streets & sidewalks. It even comes with a hand pump if you get a flat tire  :)   The other cool thing is that the top stays closed...

    Attacked while ending walks with harness

    Hi Maddies Momma, thanks for your response!    Sorry to hear you’ve had to experience the outside struggles too— I never thought of this as a survival instinct from them, it would make sense since we both have tomcats who lived outdoors. How to work through something that is ingrained in their...

    Attacked while ending walks with harness

    Hi, this post is for cat owners who walk their cats on leashes. Does your cat attack you when he has to come back inside? How did you train your cat not to fight you when it’s time to come back in?   I’m the guardian of a male ginger who was rescued off the street. He was already an adult when...
