    Sore butt

    So while my Pancake was put under anesthesia for dental cleaning Monday, I asked the people at the clinic to give him a sani cut since he always has issues with cleaning the poop on his butt. I thought it was no big deal but today I noticed his anus is blood red and I saw brown debris around...

    Anesthesia after-effect

    Overall quite smooth, they determined no tooth extractions needed so the whole thing was less complicated snd much less expensive. The only hiccup was Pancake pee’ed a bit on the floor when we came back and he was still a bit disoriented. But it was an one time thing. Now 24 hours+ later he’s...

    Anesthesia after-effect

    The peeing on the floor did stop. The grogginess seemed to have gone today. Seemed sleepier than normal throughout today but appetite has been normal. He had not pooped today though, but it’s not uncommon that he does not poop every day.

    Anesthesia after-effect

    I just brought my 7/yo cat adopted last year to dental cleaning under anesthesia today, we just came home and he’s still groggy and a bit unsteady, but he ate some wet food after fasting for a whole day, so I guess that’s good. No tooth extraction required - just cleaning and no medication...

    My Problem with Pine Pellets

    Could very well be that you cat did not like the feel of walking on pellets. I adopted my first ever cat last year, and started with clay litter. But the dust and tracking was really killing me, so starting March this year I started my cat with pine pellets. I mixed clay and the pellets to...

    Why is there always Tuna?

    And it’s not good because Tuna tends to have high mercury? My cat is v picky with wet food...he won’t eat chicken or turkey-based food 😟...only fish (tuna/salmon) or beef, and reluctantly some duck 😂...and he only eats one line of Weruva food, which really limits my choice 😕

    Why is there always Tuna?

    I feed Pancake Weruva wet food, and I noticed Tuna is one of top ingredients of a lot of the flavors - even though the names do not suggest Tuna (eg. Beef and Chicken). I wonder why? Does Tuna make the food more enticing to cats? 🧐

    The Birthday Thread 2020

    This Sunday Aug 30 is 1 year adoptiversary for Pancake and me 🎉🎉🎉 YAY WE MADE IT! What a journey in the last year with my 7-year-old (approx) ginger boy. I live alone far away from my family so I am very thankful for his company during the pandemic. Happy Gotcha Day buddy! Many more years...

    Helping my cat to lose weight

    I used to feed him 50/50 wet and dry (all wet in the morning, and dry from the feeder in the evening, with a bit of wet before we went to bed) since I worked all day in office often with overtime and I live alone. Since March I’ve been wfh and started feeding wet food for both meals, with just...

    Helping my cat to lose weight

    Believe it or not, working from home actually makes playtime harder...but yes I would try to play with him everyday - he likes fetching balls and his feather teaser toys...or if I am working I turn on the electronic toys...he is not into prolonged playtime though...maybe 10 mins or less of...

    Helping my cat to lose weight

    I followed my vet’s advice to help my chubby DSH cat I adopted in September last year to lose some weight. At the beginning he was at hefty 20 pounds (he’s a big and long ginger DSH though), and my vet and I were hoping that in a year’s time he would get down to 15 pounds or so. So I monitored...

    Changing toilet habit

    My cat’s toilet habit has changed in the last couple of weeks - instead of quite regularly peeing twice and pooping once a day, he’s now peeing mostly once a day (occasionally twice) and popping mostly once every other day. Poops looked normal. No signs of constipation. I recently made these...

    Cat suddenly refused to eat wet food

    oh yes and we all well know cats cannot be forced to do anything anyways, don’t we 🤪 I think I will be less concerned about dry vs wet if he is not overweight. He was close to 20 pounds when I adopted him in Sep and he’s just a ginger DSH (not like Maine Coone)! He’s about 7 years old now...

    Cat suddenly refused to eat wet food

    No I never did free feeding of dry food with him since I adopted him last Sept. His foster did it with him and 2 of her other cats. I have used an auto auto feeder with timed food release, since I work full time away from home - at least used to before we all worked from home since March. And...

    Cat suddenly refused to eat wet food

    Oh yes that reminds me - dental is the next thing I want to look into. Recently I noticed Pancake having a fishy smell from his mouth when trying to wake me up in the morning on my bed 😳 Pancake wouldn’t allow me to brush his teeth. I bought this online today actually to try: VetriScience...

    Cat suddenly refused to eat wet food

    Ahhh thanks for letting me know. I just bought a variety pack online to try out. Their flavors by their names are almost the same as Weruva BFF, but there might be some subtle differences since they’re after all different brands? Will see. Btw Pancake was in the mood tonight to eat his...
