    Does anyone know about a recurring UTI in male cat??

    There are some other supplements that can help too. You can also search Cornsilk extract (without alcohol) for cats with urinary issues. Having a stress free environment is key as well. I use feliway plug ins and also supplements for stress to keep my boy as calm as possible.

    Cat Peeing Outside Litter Box

    Also look for a good enzymatic cleaner that works on cat urine. Amazon or local pet stores should carry this. If you at all suspect this is a health issue, he really needs to be eating wet food. Urinary issues can crop up out of no where. You might talk with your vet about this.

    Cat Peeing Outside Litter Box

    Is the food dry or wet? Any cat with urinary issues is best off eating wet food. I am glad he drinks a lot of water. Would you say he is urinating frequently or about the same as he always has? You want to watch for small frequent urine outputs or large outputs. Is he peeing right outside...

    Tnr Questions

    Yes, I did. I would make them a bit bigger. It's always best to keep it as small as possible so you did the right thing by trying it small!! Just make one or two of them a bit bigger and see if that helps. With the feral kitties, tweaks are always necessary!! You also could reduce the...

    I Have More Trust Issues Than This Feral..

    For time outs, I usually put the aggressor into a room alone. I would start with about 10 minutes. Then let him back out. If bad behavior continues, another time out, but for longer. Then on the 3rd strike, they are done for the day and kept in the room. This is how I did mine. It took...

    I Have More Trust Issues Than This Feral..

    I only give the CBD 2x a day. For arthritis I am only using the 9mg and give 2-3 drops 2x a day. Maybe it is a bit too much since you are using the 17 mg. The fur clumps could be rough play or challenging attempts by Finn. It's hard to tell unless you see it in person. My cats sometimes...

    I Have More Trust Issues Than This Feral..

    The oils with THC are only available in states that allow it. If you are ordering online, most likely it is just hemp based with no THC. I order from Charlotte's Web and there is no THC, but there are different strengths. I use both the 9mg and the 17 mg for different cats. For my cat that...

    Finally!!!

    I had a feral disappear after TNR for 8 months. During the time he was gone, it was one of the coldest winters on record. I have no idea where he went or how he survived. I keep hoping for Sunny Boy's return.

    Homemade Shelters for Ferals

    Please do not wait to do TNR. There is a saying, "if you feed, they will breed". The 3 or 4 will turn into 50 before your very eyes. You are very kind to feed and shelter these kitties, but by feeding and offering them shelter you are also making them strong and healthy to breed. You will...
