    Should I cancel my summer trip? (right after moving with young cats)

    I don't feel like traveling anymore after adopting my two cats last October. I used to travel extensively but everything changed since last year. My life is so much happier after adopting 6-month's old Loki and Pen Pen. This year I have a business trip to Alaska coming up in August (I'm fully...

    Any recommended clamping natural litter?

    Reporting back: I bought the grass seed litter and it was a success! I mixed in the clay and they started using it since day one. It tracks a bit but not bad at all. I think it actually performs a bit better than the clay, so I'm very happy. Actually, they are also using the walnut and clay mix...

    Any recommended clamping natural litter?

    Thanks for the thorough explanation! My two cats are short hair so hopefully the grass seed litter will work out well. And the litter mats sound great! Just did a quick search on Amazon and it looks better than the one I'm using. Will be upgrading to it soon and it should help a lot! PS. Me...

    Any recommended clamping natural litter?

    That's good to know! I had problem with Garfield because my cats love it so much and they dig around a lot, so the powder ended up sticking to their tails and legs. Then it's carried everywhere other than tracking on the floor. Also, maybe my room is dry and it's caused by static electricity. I...

    What is Your Cat Obsessed With?

    My boy Loki loves eating my palm tree plant lol I've grow catnip and wheat grass for him. He eat both but wouldn't spare my poor palm plant. After he almost went through a medium-size plant, I started to buy smaller pots for him so the bigger one won't die. And he went through one pot every two...

    Any recommended clamping natural litter?

    Thank you for the recommendation! I think I'll give glass seed a try. Hopefully the tracking is not as bad as the super fine Garfield one. I hate clay litter too because even I can't breathe when I clean up their litter boxes...

    Any recommended clamping natural litter?

    I've been using Fresh Step Unscented (clumping clay) since I adopted my cats 6 months ago, because it was the type used at their froster home. Lately I've been trying to switch to a natural clumping litter because the clay one is so dusty and I'm afraid it's not good for their health. So far...

    Anyone try out really tall cat trees? Worry about height and wobble.

    I have one that's about the same height: FRISCO 72-in Faux Fur Cat Tree & Condo, Cream - Chewy.com It comes with a wall anchor but I didn't use it. I have two kittens (8 lbs and 13 lbs) and they are wild! They chase around and jump up and down all the time. The tree shakes a bit when they have...

    BEST CAT LEASH.

    I like the Pidan harness: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07WTTY7JN/?tag=thecatsite It's lightweight and it has two clips, which is quite easy to put on. My cats like this type because they can move freely and do not feel constrained. I also highly recommend this retractable leash...

    Litter box

    A side entrance litter box with cover can be a good solution. This is the one I use: FRISCO Hooded Cat Litter Box, Gray, Large 20-in - Chewy.com (I think they have bigger ones as well, same style) I took off the flip door so it's easier for the cats. They both like the boxes and never had any...

    should i add another cat to the mix?

    I think getting a second cat is a good idea. We adopted two 6-month old kittens from the same litter last year. Boy they play A LOT and have endless energy. My husband and I were both home all the time and they needed a dozen play sessions per day, and still get the zoomies and chase each other...

    How to contain my cats on the second floor during renovation

    Thank you so much for sharing the article and resources! I think my best bet is to take the DIY route and block the cats in the biggest room with a screen door / fence. I can set up their cat tree with all their toys. And I will put my desk there and work during the day, to keep them company...

    How to contain my cats on the second floor during renovation

    We'll be moving with our cat Loki and Pen Pen in two months into our new home. Due to all kinds of delays, we couldn't finish all the renovation before moving in. I'm very stressed because the renovation sites might be unsafe for them and cause problems. By the time we move, the second floor...

    Moving from house —> family home —> another student house. Is this too much moving around for a cat?

    Similar situation here! We adopted our cats last October when they're 6-month old while we lived in a small apartment. We moved to a temporary Airbnb this February when our lease just ended and the house we just bought is still under renovation. And this May, we'll be moving again into our house...

    How often do you play with your cat?

    Both of my cats are under 1 year's old and I try my best to play with them multiple times per day, 3 to 5 minutes per session. Depending on my schedule, it can be 4 to 8 sessions per day, whenever they demand. But they play with each other and run around quite a bit these days so that's a...

    Should I take my cats outside?

    Thanks so much for all of your advice. After more observation and thoughts, I think it's good to keep them inside for the moment. The airbnb owner sometimes let their dogs out in the backyard. Last night the dogs got upset and barked nonstop for 10 minutes outside of our window. They got so...

    Should I take my cats outside?

    We just relocated to a temporary airbnb from our apartment with our cats Loki and Pen Pen while renovating an old house we just bought. While the pandemic is going on, it's almost impossible to find a pet-friendly place that's affordable, so we ended up moving into this tiny studio that's...

    My cat suddenly got picky about litter box

    Yeah I've read about the cat + 1 rule before adopting them. I was hoping to get away with 2 boxes because our apartment is very small and I didn't want to put a box in the bedroom. But these days their poop is actually odorless after I eliminated carb loaded kibbles from their diet so the...

    My cat suddenly got picky about litter box

    I adopted Pen Pen about 4 months ago and she's now turning 9 months old. She has been littered train at the time I adopted her and has been using litter box without any issues since day one. I have two kittens and two litter boxes at home. I scoop the litter box twice per day, and dump the...

    Houseplants!

    My boy Loki LOVES eating all kinds of plants. I have a few pots of cat grass around. He eats them like crazy and never vomited. When the grass doesn't grow anymore, I dry them out (for compost) and he ate all the dried ones as well lol I have a few pet safe house plants and his favorite is the...
