    Almost 1 year old won't stop whining

    So our youngest cat who is almost 1 year old, Annie, has started to incessantly cry for our attention and it only started maybe 1-2 weeks ago. I mentioned her age because I'm wondering if it's an age thing, but she's never been this bad before, even when she was younger. She'd still cry a little...

    Cat toys made of things similar to deer hair?

    So recently, both of my cats have been obsessed with this one toy that's actually an attachment to a wand we bought a while ago. It's made of some weird fuzzy/spikey material that has fluff/feathers on the end and I believe it's actually made of "deer hair". They've become obsessed with it to...

    Birthday meal for a sensitive stomach

    I hope this is the appropriate place to ask this, I apologise if not! Our Annie's 1st birthday is coming up in August and we want to do something special for her to celebrate. We were thinking of making her a special birthday meal, or a cat "birthday cake" but she has a very sensitive stomach...

    Leaving 2 cats alone for a day

    I feel very silly making this post but I'm a very paranoid and anxious cat owner (and person in general) so I work myself up over these kinds of things. So, there's the possibility that me and my husband will be away from home from the morning until evening (not staying away overnight) very...

    Litter box terrorizing

    So we've had our first cat Annie since October last year. We have a newly adopted cat April that we've had for almost 3 months now. Introductions were rocky at first, but I think the two of them are much better than they once were. They rarely "fight", they'll clean each other and I've even...

    Vomiting after eating

    One of our cats has started vomiting after eating and we're not 100% sure who it is, but we think it's our 1 year old April. We've had her for almost 2 months now and this has only just started over the past few days. So since the day we adopted her, she's never chewed her dry food. I did...

    Cat safe ant repellant?

    I want to first apologise if this isn't the right place to ask, I looked around and I'm not sure where else to ask as it's not for my own cat's health, but for others that are outdoor cats but I don't think they're all strays. So I like to keep a big bowl of water outside our house for any...

    Missing patch of fur near whiskers

    So we noticed this missing patch of fur around our Annie's whiskers/mouth area a few weeks ago. It's been an issue trying to capture a clear enough photo of it, and we wanted to give it a few weeks to see if it cleared up on its own before I went ahead and made this post. We're not sure what it...

    Bugged notification

    Hi! I probably should've made this a few months ago when I first noticed it but I didn't. Basically, I seem to have a bugged notification I can't get rid of. I think it started when one of my posts was moved to a different board, in which I clicked on the alert but the little notification never...

    Biting when grooming the other cat

    Things have been going rather well between our two cats now that it's been several weeks since our newest was adopted, aside for this one thing. A few days ago, our resident cat (Annie, 8 months) has decided to start grooming our new cat (April, 10 months) whenever she gets close to her, but...

    How should I feed 2 cats and when?

    So it's almost been 2 weeks since we adopted our second cat, April. The introduction to our resident cat Annie was a bit rocky at first but they seem to be getting along much better now with almost zero hostility, and 2 nights ago we let them sleep in the same part of the house together as we...

    How can I improve this introduction?

    Back again with another topic, I apologise but the introduction between our resident cat and new cat is fully underway and I'm terrified that I'm doing something wrong and want to make sure I'm doing this well. I've read so many articles on cat introductions but our limited space has required...

    Introducing a new cat in a small house

    So there's a good chance that me and my husband will be financially ready to adopt a second cat within the coming month(s) and it's something I've been wanting us to do for a while now as I worry about our Annie being lonely and not satisfied with the amount of play she gets from us compared to...

    Weaning kitten off free-feeding

    Hi! So I have a few questions regarding feeding my cat in general but the primary one is regarding taking her off free-feeding. My Annie is currently 7 months old (approx.) and we have free-fed her dry food since we adopted her in late October, along with the odd wet food meal in mornings and...

    Safe wax melts

    Hello! First time posting in this section so I really do apologise if it isn't the right place for it. I've been in search of ways to add nice fragrances to my home and since adopting our Annie, I've been very wary of what I buy as I know a lot of scented products can be harmful to pets. I've...

    Kitten's sudden obsession with the outdoors

    Hi! This is a recent development and I'm worried if we've made a mistake. When we adopted our Annie, we had (and still have) full intentions of making her an indoor cat. We play with her frequently and she has a tower in front of the living room window to watch the cars go by (no birds in the...

    Keeping a 6 month old kitten entertained

    My kitten has recently reached the 6 month mark and seems to be harder to entertain these days. When we first adopted her, she could keep herself entertained for hours with little toy mice or with a wand toy when we played with her, but lately she's become more picky. She'll come into our room...

    4 Month Old Spayed Kitten Behavior

    My kitten is currently around 4 months old and seems to be going through some... behavioral changes. The thing is, she was already spayed when we adopted her at 2 months old (all animals at the shelter we adopted from were spayed before being adopted out, not our choice to spay that early) and a...

    Adopting a second cat for our first

    Firstly I hope this is the right section, I apologise if not! But it is mostly regarding how our cat would behave if we adopted another. Hi! So about 1 month after adopting our kitten, I went through kind of an internal crisis and was really worried about adopting only one kitten as I read in a...

    Harness training a 4 month old

    Hi! So my husband has just sprung it on me that he intends to drive 7+ hours to visit family this Christmas, and we'll have no one to watch our cat when we're away. We took her on a 2 and a half hour trip in the car some weeks ago with a carrier, while taking her out occasionally so she wouldn't...
