    Peas or Fish allergy likely culprit

    Hi there! Recently, all three sibling cats developed mushy, smelly stools and then two of them decided they no longer would eat the food I have fed for a couple of years. I was increasing the pate to try to combat constipation in one of the two males (Little One), and a couple of months after...

    Everyone here has always been so nice, so I wanted to come to you with an issue. I have three cats--all now 8 years old--siblings.

    Lotus Just Juicy Formula/label Change December 2018

    Hi all, My three kitties have been on Lotus Just Juicy pretty exclusively since April or so of this year (all canned, no dry diet). This happened because one of my cats has digestive issues (bouts of diarrhea) and seems to react to all foods with the other gums, thickeners, etc. He actually did...

    Not sure I am feeding my IBS cat enough. Please help.

    Hi all, Everyone here is so great to share their experiences.  On top of me being only 5 years or so into owning and caring for cats (3 siblings rescued from my yard when their mom dropped them off after weaning), we now have the new addition of my mom's 8-year-old male. I am concerned about...

    Is it a UTI or behavioral? Any votes?

    Hi all, First of all, I know I have to take this cat to the vet, today if at all possible, which is making me have an anxiety attack, as we just took the cat we adopted from my mom to the vet for an ingrown dew claw to the tune of $168 last week. Thankfully, he is healing fine, with just a bad...

    What does Pride By Instinct from Nature's Variety look like?

    I have a cat that likes Nutro minced chicken in the gravy and does not like pate.  He does like Weruva with the shredded consistency and the fact that it has a gravy.  My other three cats like Nature's Variety Chicken, Beef, Duck, and the Limited Ingredient Turkey.  This other cat will not eat...

    Hi all, I have an issue that is not going away, so I am going to those here who are experienced.  I adopted my mom's cat back in early November.  He is about 8 years old, according to the vet (Mom took him in when a family seemingly moved and left him behind).  I have 3 cats who were obviously...

    How often should cats be fed on primarily canned food?

    Hi all, Let me start by describing my work situation.  I work from home, which many would say is a plus in feeding cats that get scheduled feeding.  Unfortunately, I have my own business, and my schedule can be crazy, including long hours with deadlines.  My own daily schedule varies every day...

    Constipation And Transition From Indoor Dry To Canned

    Hi all, I adopted my mom's cat about a month ago.  After losing a cat to renal failure a few years ago, I immediately switched my other three cats to a primarily wet food diet (with just a few grain-free kibbles as treats).  The first thing I did with my mom's cat was start the transition to...

    Adopted mom's adult male and already have 3 adult cats--words of encouragement please

    Hi all, I have read all of the articles and even watched a video by Jackson Galaxy on introducing new cats, but I keep hearing how it is easier with introducing a kitten into the house.  My mother recently has gotten older and is having memory issues, so we have adopted her adult male cat...

    Took in my mom's cat and have 3 cats on different food than him...help

    Hi all, I have not posted here in a while. Anyway, over about 5 months last year, I managed to get my 3 cats (siblings, 2 male and 2 female) to a mostly canned food diet and onto a better quality of wet. It took a while to slowly get them all to accept that they could live without Fancy Feast...

    Natural Balance LID Chicken and Pea--anyone using and happy?

    Hi!   I am looking for something without potatoes, easy on the tummy (kitty with loose stools), and no grain.  I feed all wet but just a few kibbles in a pinch when they act hungry and I don't have time to open a can or right before bed to tide them over until morning.  However, it seems this...

    Could it be the potatoes causing loose stools?

    Hi everyone! I have been trying to solve a mystery of my cat's loose stools for a while now.  I posted on another thread, but I wanted to get some opinions on potato and potato starch in foods and whether, over time, they could possibly be the culprit.  I have 3 cats.   The other two have had...
