    young cat mischief tips needed

    that's very interesting, this is my first time hearing about clicker/hand signal training! i will definitely look into it and see if its something she might respond to better. also, the chair scratching isnt an issue, theyre allow to scratch the old chairs since it keeps them away from...

    young cat mischief tips needed

    1. I'm aware and don't agree with free roaming outdoor cats either. we do let her out on our enclosed, 2nd floor deck so she can get fresh air and sunlight with the other 2 cats. our older cats are very good with noise commands and have never needed a leash when in the front, but the young cat...

    young cat mischief tips needed

    we know, when she doesn't want to be held we just let her be. but most of the time it's happened is when she needed to be picked up (trying to climb on the dangerous side of the deck, trying to run off) even just holding her normally when calm, she'd just kick off with her claws out. our other...

    is switching to only dry food safe?/ best wet food?

    We use Purina Friskies variety pack wet food general- i will discuss more with my dad about switching to all wet food, unfortunately we just don't have the money so we rely on that dry food to supplement what they don't get in wet food + 2 of my cats love it. we have 3 cats, and I'm...

    is switching to only dry food safe?/ best wet food?

    We typically get a Friskies variety pack wet food box, and the times we've accidentally gotten pate in the mix they didn't like it as much. they do seem to like the turkey and steak ones the best over fish and chicken, but we feed them a different type each meal. after reading around on advice...

    is switching to only dry food safe?/ best wet food?

    Thank you all for the very detailed input, its much appreciated...we will play around with amount of the dry food vs wet food intakes and see which one might be the culprit while looking for other good brands in the meantime... sadly because of budget we are limited to so many brands and the vet...

    is switching to only dry food safe?/ best wet food?

    Cat is still having poop issues, we're thinking of going full dry food for all 3 now. After reading the ingredients in our wet food, we realize it may be what's causing his tummy troubles, and we don't want the other cats eating that garbage even if they can tolerate it. But, is this safe/will...

    found a new DIY treat to pill cat (suggestion) - metronidazole

    Good to know! personally my cat is a picky eater and oddball, he isn't as huge a fan of treats as my other cats. I found the butter/coconut oil/etc to work well for his picky eating because I could throw it in and have a higher success rate of him not smelling it as much or tasting it right away

    found a new DIY treat to pill cat (suggestion) - metronidazole

    I'm not an expert but I wouldn't recommend "I can't believe it's not butter", it's not exactly the greatest for us either. It uses plant oils, but a good alternative is coconut oil, even just boiled chicken, salmon, etc (avoid unhealthy processed meats, seafood high in mercury, etc). many cats...

    found a new DIY treat to pill cat (suggestion) - metronidazole

    Thanks for these as well! Very good to know. I know some people have mentioned pill pocket products being overpriced where they are from, some even costing more than the medicine! So I figured I would share a costless and very easy to make at home version

    found a new DIY treat to pill cat (suggestion) - metronidazole

    So after going through the hell that is Metronidazole, running low on pills after many failed attempts and trying every "trick" online (textured towel mat, throwing it straight in food, attempting putting it in mouth, etc) I decided to try my own. I simply took a strip of unsalted (REAL)...

    male cat overly aggressive during play

    Yeah same here, thanks though. Sometimes he plays nice and they all "make up" eventually after being upset by aggressive play. For now I'll just keep doing the same like you are with distractions and breaking up the fight 👍

    male cat overly aggressive during play

    Hi, are you sure? I've always read that overly rough play like this isn't good and it means they don't know how to NOT get out of hand, likely from not being socialized well. Hissing and growling, especially when its really bad, should be an indicator to the other cat to stop as you said, but he...
