    Old, Matted Cat + Teeth Issues

    My mom's cat, Whiskers, is 16. She is hyperthyroid (not controlled as of now, they are upping her dosage this week) and very, very skinny. Poor girl weighs 5lbs (at her peak, years ago, she was ~12 lbs) and is all skin and bones. The rest of her bloodwork was great (kidneys, liver, etc.) and...

    If you are in the South, please stay weather aware and have plans in place if stuff hits the fan! Parts of Louisiana have been issued the highest emergency you can issue for tornadoes. Everyone stay safe. <3

    If You Had Been a Boy/Girl

    Kind of piggybacking off of today's Question of the Day... Do you know what your parents would have named you? Or, if you currently have a kid, what would you have named them if they had been born the opposite sex? I would have been Timothy Scott. I do have a brother, whose name is not...

    Citrus Laundry Detergent

    Does using laundry detergent with citrus extract have the potential to harm cats? Apparently orange EOs and other citrus fruits can cause liver damage in cats. The detergent I use is very, very lightly scented, to the point where I can't tell there was any scent at all on the clothes after...

    Food Similar to Weruva Cats in the Kitchen

    We have been giving cans of CITK to our three very night in an attempt to have them fill fuller, longer (meals at 6 am, 4pm, and around midnight, no free kibble available). I caught them on a great sale on Chewy. Unfortunately, that sale is now over, and $41/case is pushing our monthly food...

    Car Buying

    I'm here for some opinions... The husband and I are both in the market for new cars. I have a friend who has been dying to buy my car for about a year now. I started a new job in January, so we are ready to take the financial leap and have adjusted out budget accordingly for two car payments...

    Litterbox Liners and Pine Litter

    For those of you that use pine pellet litter, how is your litterbox set up? We have two sifting litterboxes that get cleaned at least twice a day of solids and the sawdust gets shaken to the bottom once a day. I'm trying to figure out what to do with the sawdust. There is too much of it to...

    Tidy Cats Breeze System and Pine Pellets

    I *finally* transitioned Evie, Emerson, and Dexter to kiln-dried pine pellet litter! :yess: Now to find a suitable box. We have two sifting litterboxes that work, but we have had to rig it up to where there is space for the sawdust to fall into the lower pan. Dexter is also an aggressive...

    A Taco Bell Incident....

    Due to an error in communication, a beef taco from Taco Bell did not make its way into the fridge. Instead, Evie and Dexter decided to partake in an illicit, albeit delicious, meal. Anything I should be on the lookout for? Vomiting, diarrhea, etc.?

    Emerson is Driving Me Up a Wall!

    My sweet boy has gotten into the habit of waking me up at the ungodly early hour of 3:30am to feed him and my other two cats (the other two never wake me up, there must be some unspoken kitty rule that Emerson is the one to do so). This is relatively new (started after Christmas) behavior. He...

    Furniture and Cat Claws

    How does everyone deter their cats from scratching their sofas? We have tried everything from a spray bottle (bad, I know) to loud noises to Sticky Paws, and yet Evie and Emerson just continue to scratch the sofa with a giant cat tree not 3 feet away from the sofa and numerous posts within 10...

    Help Me Think Through This (Job/Moving Advice)

    HI everyone. I apologize in advance for the long thread. We are in a unique situation. Before I get started, I really do not want to come across as ungrateful, because I fully recognize the privilege and sheer luck we have had over the last few months. I don't mean to sound like I am...

    NomNomNow

    Has anyone tried this company? I like the fact that it's formulated by a vet nutritionist, and I think it would be an affordable food to add to my rotation. Now, if they would only expand their cats line to more than just chicken and fish...

    Has Anyone Gotten a Case of Tiny Tiger Recently?

    Hi all. Has anyone gotten a case of Tiny Tiger beef and turkey recently? I have posted about Emerson not feeling well since Saturday, and tonight, Evie threw up after eating a mouthful of TT and walking away. I'm going to get in touch with Chewy in the morning. Just wondering if anyone else...

    Cat Doesn't Want to Eat- How Long Do I Wait

    Friday morning, it was business as usual: Emerson woke me up way too early, I got up and fed everyone. Everyone ate, all was good. That evening, I fed everyone right around 6:30pm, like usual. Everyone was circling and meowing and stretching for the counter! Dexter an Evie both scarfed theirs...

    Air Purifier Recommendations

    I'm getting my husband an air purifier for Christmas due to his allergies (he's pretty miserable 11 months of the year, has been since we moved to Georgia). It will go in our bedroom, 150 sf. Does anyone have any recommendations? I'm looking at this one right now. I like its four part...

    What are You Getting Your SO/Friends/Etc?

    I am at a loss...I have no clue what to get B for Christmas. Actually, I'm getting him an air purifier for our bedroom to see if it helps with his allergies, but that's it. He needs something else, as I know he has already gotten me a few items. So...what are you getting your people? Maybe...

    We Did It!!!!

    I posted several months ago about my mom's colony. We got the last two female cats (Tiny and Felicia) in today to be fixed. I'm picking them up in about an hour. Friday, we are taking the last male cat (Airgun) to be neutered! The entire colony stops here! :clapcat::clapcat::clapcat::clapcat...

    Question About Dexter's Jaw

    Hi everyone. It's been a wild and wooly few weeks. I was petting Dexter today and noticed he has a...notch?...in his lower jaw, only on one side. It is hard, like bone. It isn't a protrusion. We got him as a stray around 12 weeks of age. He has had really bad breath since he was a...

    Goopy Eyed Semiferal Kitten

    One of the semiferal kittens has been battling what I assume is feline herpes/a URI for about a month now. I got back today and his eye is just awful. I managed to snag him while he was eating, wipe his eye, and put some plain Neosporin on it (this is what I was told to do with Evie when she...
