    Non-recognition Two Besties.... Feel so bad...

    Hiya. I freaked out yesterday and took Persia to the emergency vet. She was there 3-4 hours. Her sister Katrina (not real sisters, but shelter mates when adopted) has been hissing at her, even though Katrina was really excited to walk up to Persia and ended up hissing. Poor Persia is so...

    Hello everyone. While I figured out how to prevent Isabelle from scratching the carpet in front of the door separating the upstairs and downstairs by placing a doormat there as she scratches on that instead, Katrina has been using the carpet for scratching. This is Katrina's first time with...

    I've went back home a couple weeks ago, and my mom has a cat, and I have three cats. A door was put up separating the upstairs from the downstairs to keep the cats separated.

    Sofa Cover Recommendations

    I'm looking to buy a sofa cover. Staying at my mom's place for about a month, and my brother has a leather, or similar fabric, sofa. I keep the cats nails trimmed, but would like to cover the sofa as a precaution because the material seems like it would scratch easily. Has anybody tried any...

    Feeding Turkey

Meat, skin, drippings, and gravy are high in fat and even small amounts can trigger pancreatitis and can be lethal for your pet." It also talks about not...

    Fish Oil

    Hello everyone. I know a lot of people stay away from fish flavors for food. I've noticed most wet food, not fish flavored, has fish oil now that I've started checking ingrediants. Is there any concern with always feeding foods with fish oil? It's literally in everything.

Since the kittens were dewormed, I asked my vet what if they had something and Isabelle contracted it. She was going to send me home with dewormer...

    How long can an open can of food last?

    Just wondering since I've tried buying some larger cans of food that are spread between two meals. Although my cats like having a variety and sometimes are less enthusiastic about eating the same food twice in a row, so can the wet food be stored in the refrigerator for 24 hours before feeding...

    Introduction Advice

    A little over 2 weeks ago (Sept. 2), I adopted 2 kittens to introduce to my cat Isabelle. Isabelle is just over 9 years and had been with another male about a year ago for most of her life.
