    Older cat suddenly picky ?

    Well we got blood tests , thyroid , glucose , cbc and urine and everything was normal . He’s just a grumpy old man . Well my gut says otherwise actually . She did suggest possibly IBS or doing an ultrasound but right now I can’t afford an ultrasound . This was already $300 of bloodwork just to...

    Older cat suddenly picky ?

    Ok this makes sense . I had a cat before this one who developed hyperthyroidism around age 11 so I probably should have him checked . I guess George has always been so overweight I really didn’t consider this but he seems to be really thinning out a lot and more then he should be . I’m going to...

    Older cat suddenly picky ?

    I thought something was wrong with our cat because he wasn’t eating normally and has lost weight . But I also knew he was getting alot more exercise . I feed them a wet food morning and night and leave out kibble all day . I bought a new kind of kibble that is lower calorie but mixed it with the...

    How to stop kitten from jumping up on things

    I think you’re right . We’re in the thick of it . Maybe headed toward our way out . They are 6 months now . I keep thinking if we can make it a year they will settle. I don’t think I’ll ever get kittens again I’ll be honest . I remember my childhood cat who has since passed , my mother was just...

    How to stop kitten from jumping up on things

    I will say the only thing that keeps me keeping him around is , 1 his brother seems to like him , and 2 , my oldest best cat I adopted from the shelter when he was 3 . His name was Spaz and he was declawed but previous owners . Yet he was the sweetest boy . He hated being held too but would sit...

    How to stop kitten from jumping up on things

    I have yelled at him and he runs off only to do it again . I have snuck up on him with a spray bottle so he doesn’t run from me . That works better . The main issue was pestering the bunny and the fish . I got the bunny solved by turning around the living room . But the fish is still an issue ...

    How to stop kitten from jumping up on things

    I’ve posted before about my 2 kittens . One shy and one brave . Well the shy one is also the ornery one . He has warmed up to the house sufficiently but he’s still not friendly or affectionate. It’s most definitely His personality. I’m at my wits end with him to be honest because he doesn’t have...

    Sibling kittens .. one getting more anxious and spooked

    He does eat and use the litter . He has a good appetite and is always playing . He just runs away from me anytime I approach him . Which is what I thought was bad . But otherwise he seems ok and he’s actually venturing out of the bedroom and playing a lot actually with his brother . It does help...

    Sibling kittens .. one getting more anxious and spooked

    My sibling brother kittens about 5 months old are so different . They play and love each other. But one Arlo has always been super friendly and sweet / the other Finn is very shy and anxious . He was always the shy one but it’s lately worse and worse to the point you can barely look at him not...

    Kitten acclimating

    Thank you . Today I’ve let them out and going to leave them out unless we go away or at night . I don’t trust them not to get on the stove or knock down the house plants as of yet but I think during the day would be much more helpful . If they prove ok I’ll just leave them out all the time ...

    Cat proofing

    I’ve had cats for years but I’ve had cats who are adults and not really bothered the tops of dressers or Knick knacks etc . My older cat doesn’t really get on counters or table etc . Someone said maybe he has arthritis . He may at this point but he does jump on the back of the chair and over a...

    Pooping on rug and spraying

    He likes going in the garage to get away from my toddler and it’s cool so it’s inconvenient. He only sprays sometimes so I really want to figure out why . Yes he can sometimes see the outside cat out the front screen door . It’s a community cat and no one owns it but they are fed by neighbors so...

    Pooping on rug and spraying

    This is a good question. It seems like the poops he leaves on the rug are kinda little Balls . So maybe consitpated ? Last time I took him to the vet I asked them about him drinking a lot of extra water . Because he’s always wanting water or wet food . They did blood work and said everything...

    Pooping on rug and spraying

    My cat has had really good litter box habits until this past year . He still uses his litter to pee but he would often poop on the rug in front of it . It’s scooped daily . The litter type isn’t changed . I ended up getting a bigger 2nd box for him because he’s a really large cat and that seemed...
