    No Food For One Day

    The moment I push the button on Chewy’s to load up on food, mine stop eating it. I now have a mixture of food they hate and food then now tolerate and rotate them until the hated food is gone. I now order enough for about 2 weeks. I also tried to get all four to eat the same food, never really...

    My Cat Was With Me Throughout My Entire Adult Life And Now He's Gone

    The most guilt I have ever had about any of my many cats crossing over was when I waited too long and she was in pain.

    Catio Concerns

    I have thought about a catio for a long time. I just do not have a good place to put one. Our windows do not open the right way and I am not cutting a hole in my wall. SOOO... I do have screens on my doors, (so unlike SoCal but I grew up where we used them all the time) and I have my doors open...

    Oh wow.... that was so unexpected. There is no reason to blame yourself, you gave her 18 exceptional years with you and she gave you back tons of love in return. Grieving will be hard. You might also check with your local Hospices. Some have good groups for those who lost pets. Groups are good...

My overgroomer, Tinker, would have be be bathed in the tea...LOL. I play cat calming music every morning. I like it, too. None of my four cats are...

    Dillon - Paralysis After Vaccination

    You are doing your best for him, probably, if he had been left where he was born, he would be gone by now. You have given him months of love that he would not have known. Whatever is in store for him, a short life or a long one, remember, he is/was loved enough to try to spoon feed.

    Very Picky Cat

    Also, he may only be able to eat small meals since he may be nauseous. Leave a small amount of wet food out all day, then throw away and feed another regular amount out all night. My cats eat this way. One, takes small amounts all the time or she WILL throw up. As long as the food is not raw...

    End Of My Rope

    As in the notes above, PLAY PLAY PLAY (I had to play with my male kitten for 30 mins in AM and 30 mins before bed, running 90% of the time through the house- he panted like a dog during it and Loved it and then slept quietly). And HISSS. That is what mom, brothers and sisters do when kitten play...

    Possible Middening... Help!

    Seeing and sensing the cats outdoors may be the problem or a big part of it. You say you have three litter boxes for her, is one right next to or even on the furniture she uses? If she starts using it instead of your furniture, you may be able to move it out of the room eventually. As for...

    Live Crickets For Cat?

    I have often thought about bringing crickets home for my four. They are indoor cats and it would be fun watching them hunt. They go after spiders, flies and everything else that get in. I read somewhere that a cat owner brings home a feeder mouse (for snakes) to chase in the bathtub once in a...

    Too Needy, Non-stop Meowing Especially In The Morning

    I am just making suggestions. It sounds like you play with him and then he stops and lays down. Can you try again in about them minutes? I used to have to play with my male when he was 2, both morning and just before bed. That got him to sleep through the night. In the morning, can he be hungry...

    Fancy Feast Troubles

    I believe that. It is hard to change foods. If I am introducing a new food, I try to give half and half for a few days because I know there will be tummy trouble otherwise.
