    Do my cats like each other or is this a dispute? Confused.

    We are on month 4 of each introductions. We adopted Kirby, a male a little under 2 years old in late September. He was described as a social and non-dominant cat that was a TNR from a feral colony. He had a bite wound and while he healed, the foster found him friendly enough to be an indoor...

    New Cat growls at People/Animals Outside

    I adopted a second cat at the end of September. I noticed that if my husband or guests are outside the window he is sitting at, he will start growling. He also does this when there are deer outside. If my husband or the guests are inside, he is perfectly normal and very friendly boy. Has...

    Cat Nips/Bites

    I adopted a 1.5 year old male back in late September. He was a stray that was captured as a part of a feral colony in a nearby city. He was originally going to be a TNR but they saw he was very friendly so he was sent to a foster for a month and then was at a PetSmart for another month until I...

    Young Cat Continually Pounces on Resident Cat

    Like a lot of people out there, I am feeling a bit lost on the cat introductions. I adopted 1.5 year old male Kirby from a foster a month ago. He was originally a TNR from a feral colony that suffered from a bit wound and turned out to be friendly so he was taken in by the rescue group. He was...

    Cat Aggressive on Metronidazole

    My new cat tested positive for giardia in his fecal sample. I picked up the meds and the vet realized they gave the wrong dosage - originally it was 1.4 ml of liquid metronidazole twice a day. They then called and said it was really 0.4 ml twice per day. They said I could just use up the...

    Kicker toys without catnip

    Hi, my 1.5 year old boy Kirby loves kicker toys, but I am finding that he turns into a bit of a “mean drunk“ with the strong catnip toys like the Yeeowww banana toy. He turns a bit aggressive and tries to smack and pounce my 4 year old female cat, Sango. Does anyone have suggestions on a...

    Play Issues with cat introduction

    New cat in resident cat’s face

    I have been going through the cat introductions and I have been gradually letting my new cat Kirby (male,1.5 years old) out to be with Sango (female, 4 years old). However the problem is, Kirby is too much is her face. He tends to go to her face and lick her. She‘s okay with this, but then he...

    Resident Cat Barely Eating

    I have a 4 year old cat Sango that has been my only cat for about 1 1/2 years. She’s a shy cat but a huge clinger to me mostly. She wants attention constantly, to a point where she meows constantly. She has tendency to overgroom, I think out of boredom. I thought a friend could help because...

    I adopted a 1.5 year old male cat Monday night which I have named Kirby. We have a 4 year old resident cat named Sango. Introductions are going great and we have already started letting him out with Sango for an hour or two at a time. The first time she hissed and growled which is to be...

    Cat food mats

    My cat has a tendency to scratch her food mat when ever she is done eating or walks past. When she does this, the whole mat shifts on the floor (luckily her food plate doesn't flip over!). She's a very messy eater, understandably so, since she was a rescue from an abuse situation and has some...

    The sleep method for nail trims actually worked!

    A little accomplishment, but my husband and I have been struggling to trim Sango’s claws for months. She was a hoarder rescue and has improved a ton in year as far as socialization goes. However, picking her up is something she’s still very uncomfortable with. She would thrash, pant, bite and...

    Foods like Fancy Feast Gravy Lovers/Creamy Delights

    Sango only seems to like the chicken and turkey flavors of the Fancy Feast Gravy and the cuts of chicken version of Creamy Delights. Are there any foods similar to this? She used to like Weruva stews, but I think in the last batches I bought they were super watery and she wouldn’t touch them...

    Shelter Cat With Limp

    I have been looking to adopt another cat for a while. At the county shelter, there is an ad for a 1 year old, male tuxedo that is described as friendly, loves to purr, play, and best of all gets along with other cats. However, over the weekend, the ad was pulled so I figured he was adopted...

    Chicken Freeze Dried Gizzards/Hearts for Dental Health

    Does anyone have any recommendations on brands of chicken gizzards or hearts for dental health? Sango needs at least one tooth extract on Monday with her dental cleaning. As soon as she’s healed up, I’d like to get some chicken gizzards/hearts to help keep her teeth clean. She’s from an...

    Amount of wet food to mix with gabapentin?

    During Sango’s last vet visit, I was sent home with liquid gabapentin. She is on the feral side when she is handled (I suspect due to being from a hoarding situation). I ended up scratched (even through gloves), peed on, and almost bitten. She broke being scruffed 3 times so it was quite the...

    Refusing to finish wet food

    After finding some wet foods my cat Sango is willing to eat, I have tried to dial back the dry food on my timed feeding to 2 portions adding to a 1/4 cup total at 4:30 am and 10 pm. I am giving her a 1/2 of a 2.8 oz can of Weruva stew in the morning and another half at about 5 pm. When I was...

    Transitioning to Wet Food

    Hi, I have been trying to transition my cat to eat at least some wet food (monetarily wise, I can't afford all wet). I have reduced her dry food (Instinct Ultimate Protein) from a 1/2 cup to about 3/8 with a timed feeder and adjusted her feed times. She was fed 4 am, 9 am, 2 pm and 7 pm when it...

    Stressful Nail Trims and Vet Visits

    My cat Sango gets very stressed about being picked up and handled in any way. I suspect it‘s due to the abuse she suffered as she’s from a hoarding situation. I’ve tried to catch while she’s sleeping for nail trims and she scratched my arm up pretty badly. Another family member tried to help...

    Strange Food Insecurities?

    So my cat is from a hoarding situation. I‘ve had her since March 2020. I had tried to get her to eat wet for about 6 months. I would either see her either 1) take a sniff and scratch around her food in displeasure or 2) She eats maybe about 50% or so maybe 70% of it. I tried either feeding...
