    Better than a regular carrier?

    I have both a hard carrier that opens on the end, and a soft carrier that opens on the top and also the end. I was just curious about how the sack ones work. It sounds like there are some negative aspects I hadn't even thought of. I think I'll stick with what I have. Thanks!

    Better than a regular carrier?

    Hi Everyone, I've been seeing advertisements for the Purrfect Pouch cat carrier (there are other similar brands too). I'm wondering if any of you have tried this one or any of that type and what you thought of it. It seems like a good idea, but I'd like to hear from someone who's actually...

    Finding it Hard to find Wet Food Over the Internet these days.

    That is my dilemma too, only 1 cat and she is fairly picky. She only likes Fancy Feast pate but mostly the chicken and beef flavors. She'll eat grilled if she has to but doesn't eat it with the same gusto as she does the pate. I've tried other brands but she hasn't been a fan of any others...

    Strange behavior, was it a seizure?

    Hello everyone. My 3 yr. old cat Gracie just experienced a very strange behavior. I saw her sitting in the hallway and she had one front paw up beside her ear, like she was going to wash herself, but she was just frozen in place. Then, after about 20-30 seconds, she very slowly lowered her paw...

    The sleep method for nail trims actually worked!

    You've hit the nail on the head (no pun intended!). That's exactly how I do Gracie's nails. I adopted her at age 6 months and I don't know how much she had been handled before I got her, but she too didn't and still doesn't like to be picked up. Eventually she got comfortable enough with me...

    Possible food allergy and giving ear drops

    The vet meant to feed her regular chicken only cat food with no other flavors mixed in - like liver. She wants to see her back in 2 weeks. My thinking is that since she's using the antibiotic ointment, won't her ears get better even if she is allergic to chicken? I would think the time to...

    Possible food allergy and giving ear drops

    Hi Everyone, Gracie has been scratching both ears recently and occasionally shaking her head, so I took her to the vet today and she has an ear infection so the vet gave me ointment to put into both ears twice a day using a syringe. She's thinking her problems may be coming from some sort of...

    My cat doesn't like to be held

    Using food as a motivator is a good idea, I think I might try that. Thanks!

    My cat doesn't like to be held

    I don't try often, but only occasionally, because I do think she needs to be somewhat accustomed to being picked up and held for brief periods because there are times it might become necessary. But I certainly don't annoy her with it all the time, maybe once a month or so, and when she wants...

    My cat doesn't like to be held

    I don't force her, and I only try maybe every month or so, just to see if maybe this time she'd be more receptive to it, but she never is. If she wants down (which she always does), I let her go immediately. I quickly discovered that cats are nothing like dogs - if they don't want to do...

    My cat doesn't like to be held

    Hi everyone, My cat, Gracie, is 2-1/2 yrs. old and I adopted her from a foster when she was 6 months. She is very loving, she behaves the way cats normally do when they love you, purring, rubbing, laying in my lap etc. The one thing she absolutely hates is being picked up or held in any way...

    Help me sleep!

    My advice is not to let your cat dictate when you feed him. As long as you feed at a reasonable time in the morning, he'll get used to that if you stick with it, but if you cave and feed him before you would regularly get up, he'll keep pestering you at those very early hours if he thinks it's...

    Indoor cat reacting to a cat outside?

    Thank makes sense. I do look out the window when she starts her meowing, but of course by then the intruder is long gone, or at least out of sight so I rarely see it. She actually does have a cat tree at a different window on the other side of the house, but the cat outside has been seen on...

    Indoor cat reacting to a cat outside?

    Hi Everyone, My 2 yr. old cat Gracie has been walking around the house meowing, not all day, but several times a day for a couple of minutes at a time. This has been going on for a month or two and I've been trying to figure out why. Several days ago she was bird watching from her cat tree and...

    Cats in bedrooms at night or not?

    Gracie has been allowed to sleep with me since I first got her when she was 6 months old, except for a few weeks in the beginning when I was so sleep deprived I had no choice but to put her in a different room. Now that she has access to my room, I have to admit I still don't sleep as well as I...

    Cat likes to run in front of my feet while I'm walking

    My Gracie also does this and she's almost 2. I can't add anything other than what others have advised, but I can commiserate with you and agree it can be frustrating. When I get up in the morning Gracie is usually in bed with me and walks ahead of me, very slowly, as I try to move through the...

    Change in Fancy Feast?

    Yes I will check the lot numbers. I hope it's just a manufacturing glitch of that particular lot. Time will tell, but in the mean time I want to find another brand that she'll like too. I don't know if we can get Tiny Tiger around here (PA), I don't remember ever seeing it but I'll look for...

    Change in Fancy Feast?

    I've never seen that brand, I'll have to look for it.

    Change in Fancy Feast?

    Has anyone noticed a change in the Fancy Feast wet food, specifically the tender beef and chicken pate? The last two times I bought it, there was a lot of water/oil? in it. When the lid popped open the liquid splashed out on the counter and on me. And the food itself didn't seem nearly as...

    Won't sleep in cat bed

    I'm glad to hear I'm not alone with this problem. I've had my 1-1/2 yr. old, Gracie, for almost a year now and about 6 months ago I bought her a lovely (I thought!) bed, kind of like a little cave, all comfy with a reversible mattress. I thought what cat wouldn't love this. Nope, not her. She...
