    Kitten not eating much suddenly

    My 6-month old kitten is suddenly eating much less than usual - probably only half or less than half of what he usually eats. It started when he regurgitated some food 2 days ago. This seems to be something he does once almost exactly every 30 days since I got him and I haven't been able to...

    Neighbour's cat spraying near my door

    My neighbour has a cat who is let out every day and he often hangs out in front of my door. I recently discovered that he has been peeing right next to my door against the wall (visible pee marks + smell). I think this is new behaviour as I brought home my kitten Zephyr about 1.5 months ago and...

    Cat eats less than commercial food feeding guidelines?

    I have been experimenting with different rotations of commercial raw and canned cat food and one thing I've found is that it seems like my cat never eats as much as the guidelines on the bag or can say. He is a kitten and the guidelines say kittens can eat up to twice as much as the guidelines...

    Toys similar to springs?

    My kitten absolutely loves this kind of spring toy: They are perfect for interactive play (he chases and fetches them!) and independent play as well because he can bat them around and they are so light and bouncy that they move at the slightest touch. They've been so good for keeping him...

    Socializing a kitten that is scared of strangers

    My six-month old kitten, Zephyr, is a Russian Blue and a wonderful cat in many ways - he's super affectionate with me, loves to play, fetches his toys, and is very smart. However, he is scared of strangers and will hide under the couch when someone comes into the house. He will come out in a few...

    I never see my kitten drink water

    I've had my 6-month old kitten for a few weeks now and I think I've only seen him drink water twice. He has a whisker-friendly drinking bowl that I refill every day but I can't tell if he has touched it at all. He eats raw food and canned food on rotation and I always add water to the food so...

    Why is my kitten biting me and how do I stop it?

    My kitten sometimes seemingly randomly bites me - for example I will be lying on the couch using my phone and suddenly he will jump onto the couch and bite my foot, leg, arm, or hand. I'm not sure what triggers this - maybe wanting attention? He also bites me at other times although I have a...

    Can my cat get booster vaccines of a different brand / from a different vet?

    I took my kitten to get his rabies and feline leukemia vaccines last week and I had a bad experience at the vet I went to - the whole staff was super confused about everything, didn't read his existing vaccine / health paperwork despite it being provided, and gave him a FVRCPC booster that he...

    Walnut litter vs wood pellet litter

    Has anyone used both types of litter and what are your opinions on which is better? My 5-month old kitten, Zephyr, is currently using walnut litter and unfortunately I am finding it very dusty - sometimes Zephyr will come out of the litter box with dust on his fur and face, and I am choking on...

    Has anyone successfully trained a cat to not go on the counter and/or dinner table?

    I recently brought home a Russian Blue kitten and so far he's been wonderful - super smart, affectionate, and playful (he even plays fetch!) and also a total lap cat - basically everything I have ever wanted in a cat. He's also a big bundle of energy and quite a handful! One issue I've been...

    Show Etiquette?

    Not sure if this is the right board for this question, please let me know if it isn't! I will be attending my first cat show as a spectator tomorrow. I really want to see some specific breeds as I am considering buying one of them after I graduate and settle down. There are also some cool...

    Is This Breeder Trustworthy?

    I am currently looking into getting a Siberian cat from a breeder but I am quite inexperienced with getting animals from breeders as my family has only owned former stray mixed-breed cats in the past, so I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice. The breeder's website is here...

    What Do These Cats Feel Like? (sphynx, Bsh, Rexes)

    I haven't yet had a chance to catch a cat show so I have only ever seen photos and videos of cats with special fur (or no fur!) but I am just dying to know what they feel like! Anyone with experience up for describing them for me so I can get an idea? (Please don't compare them to fabrics though...
