    Cat Moans For No Apparant Reason

    Hi, My 4.5 y/o spayed rescue Whitney "My profile pic cat" has begun softly moaning on occasion. It is not her angry moan, nor a "I want to mate moan" but akin to the kind of moan humans make when snuggling down for a nap or stretching. She is otherwise eating great, playful, and eliminating...

    What Kinda Cat Do I Resemble?

    Hi All. I decided to get another rescue kitten from a shelter that slated his whole family to be put down-they mistakenly deemed them feral-and he has been nothing but a joy. He is quite unusual looking and although I know he is of course a "Domestic Medium Haired" I can't help but wonder about...

    Kitty never satisfied with meals

    As many of you know I am Whitney's mom. She is 1.5 years old spayed rescue-house cat that I take on walks.

    I have known about the benefits of Raw for about 5 years. However, the only brand at my pet stores was Natures Variety of which my last and present cat did not like. So each bag was only partially eaten before it got tossed in the trash. Making my own cat food is just not my thing, and BTW...

    It seems that about 1 of 10-15 cans I open for my kitty she won't eat it. Not one bite. Not when fresh in a clean bowl, not when dry- I leave it out all day too. These are flavors she usually loves and also she never has a problem eating canned food when it gets a but dried out. The only thing I...
