    Detective work - whose puke is this? Does it look like blood in puke?

    This morning: I found cat puke on the porch. But not sure which cat's! So this morning I gave my Hima her Gourmet Gold pate wet food. After eating only a bit she stopped like as if something was stuck in her mouth. I was handfeeding her so I know there was nothing unusual in the food. She went...

    Is it OK to mix two dry foods?

    This is for the street cats who lives in my condo. I feed the same 2-3 ones daily so the same cats will eat these. Normally I give them Purina One Chicken. My own cat Hima eats Acana Wild Prairie. I can't afford feeding everyone with Acana but since that has additional ingredients that might be...

    You will be missed, Miss Grumpy the condo's cat

    She was the longest stayed feline resident of my condo. She was a "street cat", but I prefer to call her condo's cat because she was. Usually here most cats live in a street / condo for a while -- days, weeks, months, couple years. Then leave to look for more adventures. Miss Grumpy stayed here...

    A 2015 study on dry food vs wet food on dental health

    Obviously oral health is only one part of health and for overall health the debate is on. And dry food has some bad effects for dental health as mentioned in the same study. Not to encourage or discourage any diet but... I finally made Hima eat mostly wet food. She eats wet throughout the day...

    How much do you socialize with the vet of your pets?

    Do you follow them/their clinic's account on social media? Can they see your social media profiles? Do you have friendly conversations? Do you hang out? Question inspired by a conversation I had with friends on whether it would be better if we got more personified when the vet saw a glimpse of...

    Do you keep the (bedroom) water fountain running at night?

    I caved in and got Hima a water fountain. It’s the quietest fountain I came across but it’s still noisy for my quiet house, especially at nights and Of course it’s reaallly annoying for me. The problem is I cannot put it anywhere other than my bedroom. It would be pointless anyway Hima is almost...

    Is this a weird cough? Sneeze? Alien language?

    I don’t think there is a problem as I recorded it couple weeks ago and no sign of illness. Just for future reference.. Hima made this sound couple times mid-zoomies one dat and again the next day. She went on running around as usual zoomies afterward so I wouldn’t think she had much trouble...

    How does this skin bouncing test score for hydration level? (Video)

    I will show this to the vet too. I took this video in the morning shortly after Hima had her wet food breakfast but I did the test again in the afternoon after she had boiled turkey as snacks and the other half of wet food, and the result wasn't really different. Hopefully video might help...

    Which one of these probiotics to support the immune system?

    I was told by some vets this year because Hima has coronavirus, it would be the best to give her probiotics both to support the immune system and to prevent any potential diarrhea or constipation -- I usually don't get to see her bowel movements as she goes in the yard and is secretive about it...

    One of the strays peed on an abnormal surface twice. None seems to be in pain. Any symptoms to look for?

    There are 3-4 stray cats around my house that spend most of the day here. My own cat goes out to the yard to pee and poop as well. But there are quite a few more cats who walk around especially late at night. AND yesterday a small kitten showed up out of nowhere. One neighbor took him in but...

    What does these contractions mean? Video inside

    At least since January (I don’t know before that) Hima gets at least one contraction like this after every meal. Not when she eats like a treat but even after less than half of a 80 grams wet food. Is this gas? That’s what I see most likely as she seems to be comfortable and back to normal...

    Is there anything wrong with giving this much boiled turkey daily?

    I try to give more wet food to Hima or at least 50% of her diet but it's not working out well lately as three of the wet foods she eats irritated her and left only one formula. Right now it's One can + a half of one canned food (Pro Plan Delicate, one can is 80 grams) The rest is dry food...

    What Might Be The Reason Of This Puking Food?

    Hima isn't a puker but she puked bile early in the morning exactly a month ago which I believe either was hairball related or the chickeny wet food she had earlier that night didn't sit well -- she got better in 48 hours on her own with the only thing I did was to give malt paste. This is what I...

    Which Trolley Carrier Would Be More Comfortable To Spend A Lot Of Time In?

    I won't just use this carrier to take Hima to the vet but also this is going to be for emergencies. Like if there is a big earthquake and roads were closed, and I would need to walk for some kms and Hima would need to spend most of her time in the trolley. My main concerns are: - I'm petite...

    Anyone Used Schesir (chicken Fillets Natural Style)?

    Limited Schesir reviews and local reviews in Turkey are all good but I am a bit confused. Hima also loved it though. Chicken fillets natural style How is this "complete food" if it has only chicken fillets + rice water + additives Vitamin E, A, and taurine? Apparently they also produce in...

    How Do You Deal With Anxiety Related To Your Cat’s Health?

    Because it’s torturing me. I have anxiety disorder that is worst about loved ones’ health. Like this morning Hima vomited yellow foamy bile and after dinner burped several times. Right after in the a.m. I got literally sick to my stomach as it happens with anxiety attack for me, then cried, felt...

    Hima Threw Up And I Think It’s Because Of Dinner. Is This Vomit Concerning?

    She never throws up but in the past (months ago) she regurgitated right after eating when I accidentally gave her a food she doesn’t like. 7 hours prior to vomiting she ate a small amount her leftover wet food. This one stayed on the plate longer than it does usually like maybe an hour. I was...

    Which Indoor And Outdoor Plants Can Handle Cat Urine?

    Hima goes outside to the yard for bowel activities. When she doesn't feel like going out, she holds her pee/poop for up to 24 hours or more. Also I'm generally not a fan of her using the same soil as the strays. This summer she started to occasionally use the big lemon tree container on the...

    What Are Some Hints That Differenate Ibd And Ibs Without Tests?

    I've been reading about them more lately, I know there are quite a few users here with IBD cats experience (I'm sorry!) IBD and IBS seem to give very similar if not the same symptoms but from what I understand the right diet etc for management aren't exactly the same. I know there are some...

    Why Does This Stray’s Sneezing And Runny Nose Don’t Ever Fo Away?

    He lives in my condominium but not one of the cats I take care of so I don’t have all the information. There’s like an unwritten rule where the cat spends most of his time in the condo, the people there take care of them. And in fact this woman gave him a round of antibiotics at least twice that...
