    The vet said their isn't much to do with cats other than humidity, antibiotics, clean his face... They don't recommend I take him anywhere, stress is gonna effect lifespan. If I choose to bring him in and give him sedation they can asperate (like a kitty netti pot) And the very face a...

    Oral cancer gums bleeding

    Luke is a lap cat only moves to sit on me or for food. Unless he has a short term infection and needs a temporary feeding tubewe're not going to put in a feeding tube. A permanent feeding tube would be for my sake not for his.

    Temptations Pate in Gravy (mini Review)

    I buy Temptations liquid treats also has under ¼ the phosphates, it's rare to find any treat to give a cat with urinary or renal issues (Curu has 450% the recommended amount of Temptations one of Mars Inc's brand names. The same Mars Inc that makes M&Ms, Snickers,etc. Mars is worlds largest...

    Temptations Pate in Gravy (mini Review)

    Two weeks ago, saw Temptations brand "Pate in Gravy" at Walmart's catfood isle... Confirmed it's also sold at chewys and Big lots. It's $0.79 each. It's a new food hopefully they dont jack up the price if it gets reviews. Many companies have been moving away from the ubiquitous 3oz can lately...

    Wet food portion

    A 3oz pouch of royal canine is 75cal. Most dry foods are about 500cal/cup. 1 pouch of RC is the equivalent of 0.15 cups of dry food. Cat's metabolism vary its better to figure out how much dry food he was eating and calculate the equivalent in wet food. but typically a 7lb cat would need...

    Oral cancer gums bleeding

    Luke's tumor/facial swelling shrank during his palliative radiation treatment and for 2 weeks after. It started swelling a little each day over the past 10days. Now he's drooling blood, from the inside of lip & adjacent spot on his gums. His gums on that area are/have been swollen from the...

    Royal Canin and Crystals

    Yourre over thinking it. First set you linked are fune.Go to a dollar store or Walmart and buy 5,6, or 7"" plates. The edge is just to keep falling off the floor. IMO larger than 6" the cat will stand in the plate to eat nothing with deepsides. The water bowls are what I rotate, I use cat...

    Royal Canin and Crystals

    -Short answer: use a normal 5-6" glass/ceramic plate placed on something so it 2"-4" off the ground (long explanation at bottom) -water bowls shouldn't be close to the food, try using a few different sizes/colors/shapes. When cats associate a dish with stagnant water they tend not to reuse it...

    Ultrasound for Intestinal wall thickening

    I have a (nearly) 14y/o cat with progressing kidney disease. I took my cat to the fancy animal hospital instead of my regular vet for a physical/blood work. They recommended a $1,200 of additional tests besides the regular bloodwork to track her CKD. Which found no irregularities BUN...

    Royal Canin and Crystals

    A slow transition is expensive but seems like the way to go with your cat. Fancy Feast isn't particularly unhealthy, but it is among the worst options to feed if a cat has urinary or kidney issues. Mineral content is always high. Most are 400%+ the target concentration. The "Senior" varieties...

    Royal Canin and Crystals

    -The more water the better, add it to wet food add it to dry food. It will only help. -Consider getting a pet fountain and placing it where your cat can get to and your dogs can't... High table, or shelf. Cats are much more likely to drink non-stagnant water. -Concentrated urine will always...

    Food allergies to many things

    Instinct LID Rabbit FTW? As a side note The food allergy (blood or skin) test aren't accurate. For a blood test, the higher IGE response to an ingredient, the higher the "likelihood" of an allergy to that ingredient and IGE result for any allergen a cat has eaten a lot of are usually going to...

    Food allergies to many things

    I've used Merrick, Natural Balance, and Koha limited ingredient foods for Luke. (Lots of other brands make it). He especially loved Koha's Kangaroo Pate. Venison, Rabbit, and Duck are common flavors (for limited ingredient foods). Thier are also Hydrolized Protein cat foods... the proteins are...

    Its Official, My Cat Won’t Eat Fancy Feast Anymore.

    FF was what I mixed into thier healthier foods to get them to eat it. Then it became just fancy feast when that trick didn't work. Eventually Fancy Feast has turned into a food they barely ate. They eat FF gems but not every day. I still mix a FF "singles" salmon or white fish to get them to...

    Picture of the Month Competition: May 2024: "It wasn't me"

    I like this idea, I'm stealing it. My oldest cat will only drink out of things she's not allowed to. A fishbowl with a filter is pretty good solution I just have to pretend not to catch her or pretend to scold her when I do catch her. The store bought lid had 6" deep plastic flaps, the cats...

    Picture of the Month Competition: May 2024: "It wasn't me"

    That's precious! 2 of my kitties figured out how my aquarium lid opens, had to build a 25lb wood lid. They're endlessly frustrated (PS: Not an entry...just more cuteness)
