    getting her to eat royal canin so

    I had this issue with my cat as well, he HATES pate form food, he wouldn't even look at it when I first gave it to him. I put him on the dry food first, he ate that like it was candy (some cats have expensive taste buds), and later he ended up having more urinary issues so I put him on both wet...

    My cat has first UTI

    I agree with what Denice said about the pain and stress, my kitty has urinary issues as well and I found that it stressed him out a lot because he was in pain when he was trying to pee, and stress can be a key factor to urinary problems, especially males being prone to blockages because of their...

    Cat refuses to stop jumping up on counters, kitchen table etc

    I have a 10 month old cat who i've had since he was basically a baby. When he was much younger he liked to jump up on my desk and on the dressers and the tables and everything else, and so I would yell at him or raise my voice at him and sometimes it would keep him off, i soon realized that...

    Still peeing on the bed

    As far as I know, the only thing that really stresses him out is being in his carrier, absolutely hates it, but I've recently bought feliway and I'm going to smother his carrier and blankets and what not with it before we leave. Since i share a house with 3 other people, his litter box stays in...

    Still peeing on the bed

    I clean his litter box at least 3 times a day, he doesn't like a messy box. I got my mom to pick up a urine cleaner for this bed at home. I'm not sure its a stress related thing. He uses his litter box all the time, even uses the family cats litter box when hes out and about down stairs. My vet...

    dumping water

    Pet water fountains are GREAT for this, they're big and clunky and kitty can't knock it over but can still play it in. They have them at walmart or pet stores for 20-30 bucks. My kitty plays and knocks over his water too and the fountain works wonders. They look tall but kitty can still drink...

    Scared of the cone

    I was actually told not to use a bitter spray. He doesn't have stitches, the incison is open for healing. The cone was the only option.
