    Cat likes to run in front of my feet while I'm walking

    Toru likes to do this, and I've had other cats that like to do it too. When I'm walking up and down the stairs I'm usually hyper aware not to trip over him, but there's times when I'm not aware and I might accidently kick him when I walk. It's not hard and usually it doesn't bother him. Well...

    Emergency change of location of feeding/litter

    I had been keeping the litter and the area where I feed my cat in the basement. Well I've had a major flooding issue, and I have to find a new location immediately. I've read it's recommended to "slowly" move the locations, setting up a second litter tray and feeding station so the cat can make...

    Puzzle feeder questions

He became very sweet, wanting to be pet and cuddled a lot. Now he seems to be entering a new phase...

    Stopping a cat from going underneath a recliner.

    My new cat Toru has a habit of going underneath my recliner where there's a small opening as I'm sitting in it. Usually I'm not aware until he playfully reaches out and touches my feet or I feel him moving around underneath. The problem is it's a rocking recliner, and if sticks his paws out from...

    Finding the right cat harness

    I'm a first time cat assistant. Adopted Toru about three weeks ago now. Lately it seems he's been getting ansty to find new places to explore. He's jumping in cabinets and the fridge, even trying to get in the fireplace, etc. And he stares outside longingly. I don't want him roaming around...

    Can mild essential oil fragrance can be harmful for cats?

    I've read mixed things online and not sure what to think. I have an evaporative cooler and sometimes I put essential oils in the water to give it a fragrance. One of my favorite oils to put in is peppermint oil because it seems to make the air feel cooler. I know peppermint can be bad for cats...
