    Those With Adult Cats And Kittens, How Do You Feed Them?

    I have a two year old cat (Cali) and a kitten (Oliver) around 5 1/2 months. We've had the kitten since May and for a while kept the kitten isolated in one section of the house. This made feeding simple since both the cat and kitten were fed in separate isolated areas of the house. Just this...

    Concerned About Safety Of Feather Toys.

    I have a couple of those chaser/wand toys with feathers attached among the many toys for my two cats. The problem I've noticed with these toys is that the feathers tend to easily become loose, especially with rough play. My concern is this may cause a choking hazard or other problems if...

    Is My Kitten Part Maine Coon?

    I adopted Oliver nearly two weeks ago. He is now around 14 weeks old. He is identified as a Domestic Short Hair. This morning I took him to the vet for his exam and vaccinations. I forget if it was the vet or the tech who commented that he looks part Maine Coon. Personally I don't see it but...

    It looks like I'll soon be adopting a 12 week old male kitten to join my 2 year old resident female cat whom I've had for almost two years.

    How Does Your Cat Greet You When You Get Home?

    How does your cat or cats greet you when you get home from work or school? Cali usually spends most of the day in one of the room upstairs on her tree or perch looking out the windows or taking a nap. When I come in the door, often I'll hear a muffled thud as she jumps of her tree or perch...

    I got my cat a scratching board which came with a little bag of catnip that one is suppose to sprinkle on the board to make it more attractive for the cat. Last night I decided to give her a little bit of the catnip on its own. I put a pinch of it on the floor. The cat walked up to it and...

    What Is Your Cat Like At The Vet?

    I'm just curious as to how your cat(s) behave at the vet. I'm not talking about emergencies or urgent visits when the cat may be in distress, but rather routine visits. A few weeks ago I took my cat to the vet for a general wellness exam. I had taken her a few times when she was a kitten for...

    Stool Sample

    My cat has an upcoming wellness exam in the next few days. The vet suggested I bring a stool sample. How do i store it? Could I just simply place it in a plastic sealable sandwich bag? It's the best thing I have at home at the moment. Also I use clumping litter for my cat. I'll try to get...

    Anyone Else's Cat Seem To Be Loyal To One Brand?

    My cat, 15 months old, for some reason seems to favor Fancy Feast. I tried giving her other brands such as Blue Wilderness, Wellness, and most recently I tried Nature's Variety Instinct. She refuses to eat any of them. I'm not sure what it is about the FF that she finds particularly...

    Cat's Food Attracting Ants

    I leave out some dry food for my cat to nibble on in case she gets hungry while I'm at work. This morning I went to clean out the dish of the remaining food to replace it with new food and fresh water as I always do and discovered the dish crawling with ants. I immediately emptied the bowl...

    Cat Obsessed With Paper Products.

    Anyone else's cat enjoy destroying paper products? This is the fourth cat I've had, but I've never seen the behavior exhibited in the previous cats. For some reason my cat, currently 11 months old, seems to enjoy tearing apart paper products. You name it, paper towels, napkins, newspapers...

    Seriously Contemplating Getting A Second Cat

    Even though I've had a long history of owning cats since childhood, they've all been solo cats. However, now I'm considering getting a second cat as a companion to my current cat and it seems it would be nice to have another cat around the house. Now I am aware of taking the baby steps approach...

    What Is A Good Hand Held Vac For Picking Up Cat Litter?

    My cat has a habit of kicking litter out of her box when she uses it. I do have one of the welcome mat type rugs under the box to keep the floor clean. I am looking for a hand held vac powerful enough to pick up the litter instead of having to drag out the full size vac all the time. I do...

    Anyone Using Food Topper On Wet Food For Picky Eaters?

    I usually order a variety of food in brands and flavors for my currently 9 month old to try out online. One of the foods I got her was Wellness Core Salmon Whitefish and Herring which she would not eat. I don't think it's necessarily the flavor because she loves Fancy Feast and will eat the...

    How Long Can You Really Leave Wet Food Out?

    I did google this question and got results ranging from no longer than 30 minutes to all day is fine. I usually feed my cat in one meal either one whole 3 oz can or a half of a 5 oz can. Most of the time she'll eat it all in at once. However, sometimes she'll either only eat half because she...

    Is Liver Really Bad For Cats?

    On the lists of foods that are touted as being harmful to cats, some of them make sense such as onions, chocolate, etc. However, liver is also usually on these lists. If liver is really that harmful than why is it used as an ingredient in many of the cat foods, even the premium brands. I'm...

    Do You Use Litter Box Liners?

    When I first got my cat, for a short while I was just adding litter to the box with no liner. This meant that at the end of the month when I cleaned out the litter I had to clean the pan itself. I figured it would be more convenient to add a liner so all I had to do when it came time to...

    How Long After Surgery Can My Cat Be Allowed To Play?

    I had my 6 month old kitten spayed nearly a week ago (Friday the 17th) She was given a cone which the vet says he has to wear for two weeks. For most of the time I had confined her to a spare bedroom. However I think she was going stir-crazy being confined to one room for too long so the past...
