We are experiencing a flare up I guess. He is sneezing a lot and his eyes are a bit runny. I don't see any yellow or green discharge...

    Automated Pet Feeder

    We are usually home to feed the kitties, but we may be away over night and I'm thinking this will be a good thing to have when we are not at home. There are definitely more expensive ones, but this one has good reviews.

    So I now have 3 cats to feed. I prefer to feed them wet food 2x daily with a bit of dry. I've been trying to find the best food at the best price in a larger can.

    3 Cats Too Many?

    I have 7 and 9 month old kittens who are now well bonded and my daughter just sent me the cutest kitten up for adoption. Still a baby - about 8 weeks. Is three too many? Am I going to rock the boat? Too much of a good thing with two that get along? Give me your honest thoughts!

    9 And 7 Month Old Kittens.

    I normally feed my kittens a 3 oz can of canned meat in the morning with 1/2 cup dry and the same in the evening (they share that amount). It appears they may be gaining a bit too much weight, so my question is - would you give the same amount of meat and cut back on the dry? Or vice versa. I...

    When Introducing Cats..

    What should my response be to my cat's behaviour to the new addition. I have a 5 month old and a 9 wk old. The 5 month old is doing a lot of hissing and growling.
