    Is it bad to not trim a cat's claws?

    I have two cats, one of whom is fine with having her claws trimmed. My male cat, however, absolutely will not let me touch his claws. I've tried since he was a kitten, even when he was sound asleep, and he freaks out every time. It honestly doesn't bother me that his claws aren't trimmed, he...

    Safe cleaning products?

    I'm trying to use mainly natural cleaning products but the problem I'm finding is that most natural cleaners are formulated with essential oils which from my understanding are toxic to cats. I've been loving Mrs. Meyers cleaning products specifically the all purpose concentrate so I can just...

    Both Cats Stopped Eating Their Regular Food?

    Thank you so much for the replies! They're both eating the food just fine now, the only thing I can think of is I was cleaning my apartment with vinegar and may have used a little too much, granted not around their feeding area but maybe the scent was too strong for them.

    Both Cats Stopped Eating Their Regular Food?

    So my cats eat Taste of the Wild dry food and Sheba wet food everyday, I recently bought a new bag of the Taste of the Wild (same kind they were devouring before), and neither went near it, instead digging at the floor around it. Later in the day they finally started eating some of it but only a...

    Kitten Terrified Of Other People

    My kitten Riley is about 4 month's old now, and is terrified by anyone but me in my apartment. When I adopted him at 2 months, he was quite outgoing at the shelter and didn't seem particularly shy or skittish when I was handling him. When my sister visited a couple weeks after the adoption, she...

    Is Blue Wilderness Dry A Decent Food?

    Thank you for the reply! Yeah I'm not sure why his digestive system doesn't like Instinct, I've had my adult cat on the original and she had no issues. Just for clarification, my cats aren't on an all-dry diet, it's about half and half wet+dry.

    Is Blue Wilderness Dry A Decent Food?

    I've had my 4 month old kitten for about a month and a half now and for the majority of that time he's been on Nature's Variety Instinct kitten formula dry and Wellness Core wet for kittens (yes I know it'd be better to feed all wet but I'm gone for most of the day and worry he'd go hungry...

    Confused About Booster Shots

    Thank you all so much for the replies! It definitely makes more sense now, I was thinking I'd have to take my kitten in every 2 weeks for months amounting to quite a lot of shots but this thread definitely cleared it up. I've never had a cat younger than a year so this is all so new to me, but...

    Confused About Booster Shots

    So I adopted a kitten a little over a week ago, the people at the shelter explained the shots to me but I was still pretty confused (plus the kitten crying in his box was distracting lol). They said he received some shots then will need boosters every few weeks. So if he was 2 months when I...

    Guilt Over Adopting Second Cat

    Thank you for the replies, they've definitely reassured me! I've began to let them see each other for short periods and while my resident cat still hisses/growls/swats at him, I feel like she's warming up to him. She'll follow him around and when she chases and swats at him she'll go and play...

    Guilt Over Adopting Second Cat

    Sorry if this isn't the right forum to post this! So I just adopted a second cat after about 6 months of considering it and thinking that it would be nice to have a friend for my current cat who is usually calm, friendly, and very playful. The kitten is 2 months old, blind, and very...

    Cat Having Sneeze Attacks Suddenly

    Thank you for the kind replies! We just got back from the vet, and I'm definitely glad I kept the appointment because Bella ended up getting worse. She was getting really congested and this morning before we left she sneezed up a little blood. Ended up being an upper respiratory infection and...

    Cat Having Sneeze Attacks Suddenly

    Thank you for the replies! I decided if it had gotten worse by tonight I would try calling the vet again to see if there was any way to get in earlier, however she's doing much better tonight fortunately. I spent the morning deep cleaning my apartment and doing some major dusting, I'm thinking...

    Cat Having Sneeze Attacks Suddenly

    So last night out of nowhere my cat had a little sneeze attack, sneezing about 5 times in a row. I didn't think too much of it since this happens occasionally. Then about 20 minutes later it happened again, this time she was making kind of weird nose noises afterwards when cleaning her face...

    Personal Use Of Tea Tree Oil Around Cats

    So I use tea tree oil for a number of things; spot treatment of acne, on minor cuts, in foot soaks, etc. I know not to ever apply it to my cat or let her ingest it, but now I'm wondering if it's bad for cats to even inhale the scent of it. I don't diffuse it, but when I use it in foot soaks the...

    Recently Adopted Cat Rarely Lets Me Pet Her?

    Thanks for the replies! She's actually gotten a little better with not biting so much, and I think she does get overstimulated easily. Also sometimes I forget she's still somewhat of a kitten so she's going to be more playful, I will definitely keep toys around for when she starts to bite.

    Recently Adopted Cat Rarely Lets Me Pet Her?

    New to the site, so hello! I recently adopted a 1 year old cat a month and a half ago, so far things have been going well. When I first brought her home she was very affectionate, rubbing up against me and rolling over letting me pet her all the time even on the stomach. However, in the past few...
