    New kitten eating Blue Ridge kitten grind and mix? Not confident in it

    Just adopted a new kitten (4 months) that the breeder said was eating Blue Ridge kitten grind and mix (1/2 & 1/2), plus kitty bloom and nuvet vitamins, and a probiotic. I am concerned about her being nutritionally complete. The breeder is excellent and experienced. But I am new to raw. The...

    Adopting 2 kittens from different catteries. Concerns?

    I have apparently been blessed. I have two catteries who would let me adopt from them. Both 4 month old kittens. Is it unwise to get 2 kittens from different catteries at the same time? Health wise anyway? I have read posts here that indicating getting 2 kittens is good for them. I would like a...

    16 week adoption age questions re socialization

    What is the issue with the 'kitten room'? I was wondering about that. One breeder I have seen, does do this. No household time, moms and all kittens together as a group. Well at a certain age, they have their own enclosures till 5 weeks.

    Unsafe Cat Tree

    If the base comes off, and the bottom tubes are hollow, put rebar up inside them. Just the lower ones, it will make it heavier on the bottom. Then follow the suggestions above of attaching to wall stud. A cup hook and rope would even work. Use stud finder to find stud (not talking a man...

    16 week adoption age questions re socialization

    No visits, never met mothers either. Made deposit just before all of this. :( Kitten will be put in crate and I will pick up. That is the extent of interaction. Makes me super nervous. But, really, most are just asking for a deposit. There's no picking a kitten other than color. Ragdolls are...

    16 week adoption age questions re socialization

    Thank you. One person, 3 litters of different ages hanging out together now, another litter just born. They are a good breeder by what we have learned. Kittens are kept in a kitten room, like many do. Not sure if they spend time out of it. Doesn't appear so. 2 of the littlest stay hidden, while...

    16 week adoption age questions re socialization

    We are seeking to adopt a full breed kitten and most breeders are telling us that their kittens are adopted at 16 weeks. All of the research I have read says that the socialization period is in that first 16 weeks. I am just wondering how a breeder with several litters can socialize all the...

    Cat incessantly meows outside bedroom for hours every night. Only option left to give him away?

    They both sound like they have emotional issues likely from being taken from their mothers too early. If they were shelter kittens and given up at 8 weeks, that is just so early. Once his emotional needs are met, he should calm down. Are you home all day right now? If so, it's a good time to...

    Early kitten care by rough person & future behavior?

    Sorry, that wasn't fair saying he's a nutcase. Yes, he cares enough to keep until fully weaned and to him "socialized." Thanks for all the great comments and advice, I really appreciate it. I agree there's a lot of cats to be rescued. One kittens ribs you can feel and she has the round belly...

    Early kitten care by rough person & future behavior?

    Thank you for the confidence. He does not want to adopt them out until 4 months (16 weeks), forgot to mention that. I have tried to talk him into giving them up earlier but he's convinced he's "socializing" them by having the tv on full blast, and man handling them. Its super sad. I just don't...
