    Senior kitty acts hungry but also acts constipated

    You might want to look into low phosphorus foods or foods made for older cats in the event his constipation is kidney related. My cat gets prescription food, but there are many lower phosphorus foods that aren’t prescription, like Weuva chicken Turkey topsy turvy.

    Has your cat’s bloodwork been taken recently? Nausea and constipation are both signs of kidney disease, which often happens to older cats.

    Cat with Stuffy Nose Won't Eat

    Hi, has your vet ever talked to you about famciclovir? Really kicked the herpes out of my cat. It’s an antiviral pill. Saved his eye and possibly his life. Not cheap, but still less expensive than a vet visit if you prefer vet around or have GoodRx.

    Coffee & Tea Talk

    What's your favorite cup of coffee like? Hi! Long time no visit. I like my coffee strong and sometimes flavored. Not dark roasted, something like a Colombian. Hazelnut, usually. But it has to be strong. I do prefer locally roasted, too, from the local coffee place in WVa.

    Would you call her calico?

    I also think she looks like she could have point, or Ragdoll, but that’s just me. I’ve never seen a calico with coloring like hers. This is my brothers new kitten. Thank you!

    Trust Your Gut!

    Aw. Did the vet suggest megacolon or ask you to give your cat anything to prevent a reoccurrence of her constipation?

    Cat Has Hard Lump In His Pouch

    I’m so glad you got this checked out. My worry was you were feeling hard stool in his colon, a sign of megacolon (being overweight is a risk factor). You did the right thing, and now you know a good vet for cats!!

    Siamese Cat Driving Me Crazy! Normal Behavior Or Demanding?

    Try one of those electric butterfly toys or another interactive toy. She’s used to being outside where stuff moves, not just stuffed toys.

    How To Fatten Up My Senior

    By all means try the Nutrical, but I’m pretty sure the kitten version is the only one with taurine, so you might take that into consideration. I had a cat who basically lived on it for about 6 years. It helps if your cat likes it, so I hope she does. Why can’t the vet prescribe something to...

    Do Cats Mind A Messy House?

    I’m in your shoes, and my cat hates it if my house gets messy. Dishes smell if they sit, the floor gets dusty. A pile of clothes makes a room look unrecognizable. :sigh: I find myself cleaning for the cat more than for myself.

    Please Help!! Is This Kitten A Ragdoll?

    They are great cats, but the Ragdoll aren’t cloned, so there’s zero guarantee you won’t wind up with an aloof cat. Good shelters and fosters are much better at predicting personality than DNA.
