    cross country driving with cats

    @Furballsmom nah, my car in particular is gonna be scrapped or sold for parts before we leave the state. it's nearly 17 years old and wont hold up in cold weather, and overall it would be more expensive to fix/register than to get a newer one. and thanks for the articles!! the travel one is...

    cross country driving with cats

    time for me to post multiple new threads in a day, yeehaw. anyways, this is a scenario for the future, about 6-7 months from now. so i have that much time to try and prepare multiple cats for what will potentially be a 3-4 day trip (oh boy) we're looking at: two cars minimum, not sure if we're...

    tips on joint supplements?

    heyo again. taking my tripod cat's older age (11yo) into consideration, as well as my mom's cat (13yo) i'm putting out feelers for future joint problems. routine vet visits have cleared Chansey as healthy with no problems, despite her three legs, and my mom's cat, Hunnies, is doing okay when it...

    Lifelong heart murmur?

    thanks for the resources! like i said before, i definitely want to get a second opinion because when they detected her increased heart murmur, it was directly after a few very stressful weeks. shes otherwise healthy, but i worry. again, pandemic cutting hours n ways to get em checked out but...

    Lifelong heart murmur?

    heyo, i keep making long winded posts because i keep finding things to be paranoid about in my cats and i like to over explain things 🙃 this one isnt exactly mine, but i did take care of her while living with my parents for the better part of 5 years. in the end tho, she's def my mom's baby...

    Tips for apartment cats!

    seconding @lavishsqualor on the actual apartment itself. it's been a few years since i moved into my apartment but they'll usually want you to make 1.5 times the monthly rent -- at the very least. there are refundable pet deposits, nonrefundable, pet rent. i think when i brought Chansey with me...

    How much should my kittens be eating??

    thanks for the advice! i guess this more important atm since i just learned my secondary income is gonna be cut soon. so i have to weigh what's better for all of my cats for the rest of the year, until that income potentially restarts. i'll start leaving some of the Purina Pro kibble out just...

    pictures of Cats enjoying their cat trees

    these guys dont use the tree all that often but enough to make it worth it. chansey uses it least of all because she needs a better surface area to jump up and land on. and whoever designed the poles to have carpet at the tops + bottoms should be fired bc cats dont always go for the exact middle...

    How much should my kittens be eating??

    Heyo again, here to ask about meals for my monster kittens, Korra and Mara. Korra grew up malnourished and ate Kibbles n Bits before I got her, but I cannot for the life of me get her to eat just plain dry food so that her and Mara can share a small bowl overnight. She will only eat all the...

    How much do you spend monthy on your cat for litter and food?

    I more or less have to buy the lightweight Tidy Cats tubs or containers, since carrying a regular weight container up just one flight of stairs to my apartment will strain the pain in my arms until the next day. I usually top off each litter box at the end of the week, with four boxes total...

    Experience with cat-proof fences?

    thank you all for the replies and excellent wildlife advice! it's been a decade since i lived in WNY and i was a teen then, so i've been brushing up on the kinds of raptors in the area. i've seen and heard quite a few bald eagles, golden eagles never. red tailed hawks are very common, and...

    Experience with cat-proof fences?

    @Dacatchair @Willowy thanks for the alternative ideas! the land isn't cleared out yet and tbh, we haven't even settled on what size the houses that are being placed are. or even what amount of the 4 acres is being allotted to who. things are still very much in the air for the next few months as...

    Experience with cat-proof fences?

    i currently live in AZ in a rental apartment so this isnt an immediate concern, but it's looking like I might relocate to my rural reservation in western NYS in the spring or so. my family's looking into clearing out some land we have to make room for several little houses, including one for...

    Experienced, and yet new

    @rubysmama chansey's still around and kickin, of course! with how healthy she is at 11 years old, i'm probably stuck with her for at least another 5 years, haha. she's been pretty irritable with the babies, though she calmed down enough to walk by them without hissing/growling to get to her...

    Quick, short term advice for feral kitten

    1am update: was waiting for my mom to let me know if the kitten appeared today, and there was nothing in the morning or earlier this evening. i've been a little sick today (and yesterday tbh) so i only wanted to go over if she needed me to help corral the kitten, but no sighting, no need to...

    Quick, short term advice for feral kitten

    @Willowy I'm currently eyeing up one of the small $20 ones, its just a matter of whether or not it's in stock at the stores nearby, but I'll head over to my local family owned pet shop to see if they have any faster resources. I'm not confident that many ppl around here have human rodent traps...

    Quick, short term advice for feral kitten

    I don't know many people around here and unfortunately, given the whole pandemic thing, any friends of mine aren't able to come out with me for this. Unless we somehow coordinate with the neighbors who are also looking out for and feeding the kitten, we have 3 people at most who can attempt to...

    Quick, short term advice for feral kitten

    Its just about 2:30am where I'm at so I'm gonna post this and promptly pass out, BUT I just came back from trying to feed a tiny feral kitten at my mom's apartment building. Teeny tiny, gray/white or probably just really dirty, pretty sure it still has baby blue eyes. My mom says the poor thing...

    Keeping bugs out of my shadow ferals food bowls

    (add on, do i know how to edit yet? absolutely not, whoops!) meant to say too, use the powder in combination with some of the other methods suggested. the apartment ferals here eat out of doubled up bowls, one inside another filled with water like a moat.
