    Vibes for Angus!

    I am so worried about Angus...

    Aikiou Stimulo vs Catit Design Senses Food Maze

    Soft, ultra fine-grain, unscented, clumping cat litter

    Hello, I was hoping someone could recommend a soft, ultra fine-grain, unscented, clumping cat litter for my cats.  Perhaps something more like the consistency of sand. One of my cats is inappropriately eliminating around the house and I think it is probably my declawed cat, so I was hoping a...

    Kitty nail art

    So, I was recently on Catsparella where I came across a post about kitty nail art stickers, so I decided I had to give it a try.  I ordered a few different sheets of cat stickers from Janchristie and they finally came today!  I couldn't wait to try them, but it was a lot more difficult to do...

    Angus has some weird lesion on his back!

    Yesterday morning I noticed poor Angus licking and scratching at his back more than usual so I caught him to have a look and this is what I found! I have no idea what happened so I quickly put on his e-collar on, gave it a scrub with some chlorhexadine and called to make an appointment with...

    Bacterial contamination

    OK, I am very new to raw feeding, so please be patient with me while I figure it all out! I tried chicken necks for the first time today and the cats loved them, but I did notice that Angus had to use his paws a lot to hold the neck in place, so my question is, should I be worried that he has...

    What can I try next?

    I have been debating about going raw for a really long time now, so when I was at the farmers' market today and saw some chicken hearts for sale, I decided to give it a try. Angus (6 month old, 7 lbs, BSH) took to it really well and he absolutely loved his chicken hearts, but my other cat (7...

    When does it become too many cats?

    I may be opening a can of worms with this one, but I thought it would be an interesting topic. How many cats is too many? I just saw this video for a new series on National Geographic Wild called "The Lady with 700 Cats" premiering July 30th, and I just can't help but think "Is that sanitary?"...

    Angus' first vet visit

    So, a couple of days ago I notice a little more ocular discharge in his right eye than I would've like, but I wasn't sure if that was just me being an over-obsessive/hypochondriac-type owner or it was really there, so I decided to wait and see. It didn't clear up by Monday night so Tuesday...
