    Seriously?

    I had just cleaned my grumpy 13 year old's eyes and he's giving me the feline version of the middle finger ... :cool:

    Bravo Basics Frozen Raw

    Is anyone here feeding the Bravo Basics frozen raw, or any of the frozen raw formulas from Bravo? They have a Turkey that's just meat, organ and bone. I don't like the bone but I'm looking at it as a possible option if turkey continues to be scarce for a while. Local pet store carries the...

    Finally got some food for kitty.

    I posted a venting thread about not being able to find Turkey. Now I'm posting the relief thread. Bought two packages of turkey legs, 6 per package (the store had 8 or 9 of the packs). Also 3 packages of turkey thighs, 6 thighs total. A little on the small size but I'm thankful. Also have...

    Pork feeders ... need some advice

    Can't get Turkey and almost out. Bought some boneless pork today. Never fed pork before but I'm running out of options here. Worried about his tummy as well as whether he'll eat it. But it should be a novel protein for him. (He cannot eat chicken). I only have about 1 weeks worth of...

    I think were fubar here ...

    I have about 1 weeks worth of raw food left and I cannot get turkey thighs. I know there are much bigger problems going on right now but I needed to vent ... so I'm venting. Kitty needs to eat too.

    Cat doesn't eat as well when it's "cold" ...

    We've been logging our cats eating patterns because he goes through periods when he's got a really good appetite and other periods where he eats less (we count calories). Regardless, he's consistently maintaining the same weight so we don't worry too much about it. But we hadn't been able to...

    Turkey liver

    I cannot source turkey liver locally. Gizmo can't eat chicken and I'm about 90% sure that chicken liver is a no go as well so I don't chance it. So, I use freeze dried turkey liver to substitute for the liver in his homemade turkey. At any rate, for those of you who are able to get fresh...

    Freezing canned food?

    Can canned food be safely frozen? I'm trying some Rawz Rabbit with my cat and he seems to like it but I'm introducing very slowly and it's expensive ($3.29 per 5.5 oz. can). I can't get the smaller 3 oz. cans here. Wondering if I can safely freeze half of the can so it doesn't all go to...

    Fish Oil

    I'm using Alnutrin and I haven't been adding any salmon or fish oil to the food. I don't think anything on the Alnutrin site suggests it. I've been considering trying something again but my cat doesn't seem to like salmon oil. Any suggestions for a fish oil, capsule or liquid, that I...

    Interesting Bloodwork Results.

    My cat has had high calcium on his bloowork ... 3 different tests going back 7 or 8 years. It has been in the low 11 range (max normal is 10.9 I think). He had been eating Blue Buffalo sensitive stomach dry over that time period. He was switched to high quality canned and homemade 6 months...

    Teeth Cleaning - Cost

    Just had my 12 year old cat in for a 6 month check. Vet didn't think bloodwork was necessary as far as the check-up was concerned but did suggest he have his teeth cleaned in which case the bloodwork would have to be done anyway because of his age. So, we went ahead with the bloodwork...

    Flea Treatment ... Pondering The Logic

    Let me first state that I greatly dislike the thought of using insecticides whether it be on the cat or in the home. But with that said, I'm failing to see the logic of those who willingly use a topical or oral flea killer/preventative on their cats but refuse to use one in their homes should...

    Changing Litter Pans

    My cat has never had any litter box issues. He always has used the box and only the box, knock on wood. I know that changing brands or types of litter can be a real problem with some cats. But, has anyone had any problems after replacing a litter pan? I use an open type litter pan and...

    Clumping Litter

    Warning, this is more of a rant thread. Anyone using the lightweight clumping litters and hate the tracking issues? I used Cats Pride unscented clumping litter for a long, long time. My cat was fine with it. Then they started making the 25% lighter weight version. I tried it once and cat was...

    Anyone Feeding Pork?

    I've seen pork mentioned as a novel protein that sometimes sits well with IBD cats. I've seen some canned cat food varieties that are pork based. I fed Young Again dry food for a little while several years ago, which is hydrolyzed pork protein based. Haven't seen any commercial frozen or...

    Broke Down And Bought An Electric Meat Grinder

    For those familiar, I used an inexpensive manual grinder to make a couple batches of homemade. It really works pretty well but since the homemade is working out well with my cat I decided just to make life a little easier and buy an electric. I was going to buy the Tasin as some recommend on...

    Cat Toys.

    Gizmo is 12 now but never was a cat toy cat. Used to like the bizzy balls or a tinfoil ball to bat around and chase when he was a kitten and young cat but even then he would lose interest within a matter of a minute or two. We've tried lots of toys in the past, he's just not a cat toy cat...

    Eye Envy

    Has anyone used Eye Envy for tear stain prevention/removal? I have a flame point Himi and have used it on and off since he was a kitten. It's probably the best stuff I've used and I haven't had any issues. But I read some reviews before this last time that I purchased the liquid (I have...

    Feeding Schedule Ok?

    I have a situation where my wife and I baby sit our 1 year old grandson 3 days per week. Our 12 year old kitty doesn't like kids. He was fine with the baby before he walked but now that he is a walking toddler, he likes to chase the cat. The cat is having none of it. So he will usually...

    Rabies Vaccine

    So, how do you deal with Rabies vaccines when/if your cat has a bad reaction to a previous vaccine? My cat is indoor only, no other animals in the house. He's 12 now and he had his kitten shots except for Rabies vaccine. I squirmed my way out of the rabies vaccine when he was a kitten...
