Cataracts by Alison Sinclair
I have a cat who was previously diagnosed as diabetic and was on various doses of insulin for about 18 months. About 2 years ago insulin was stopped and the cat is well and healthy. I still give him Hills M/D food partly as a precaution and because he strangely won't eat anything else. He won't...

Dry food addict. Refuses anything else by Jane B
Now that I've read how much healthier canned food over dry, I've been trying to convert my cat. She is incredibly fussy. Only eats dry food. She does not over eat, so she is fed at will. I have tried about 30 different brands and flavors of canned foods. The only kind she's will to touch are...

Amazon, 28 pound box of litter, $10 with free shipping by John Doe
Now they are back at $11.78 per 28 pound box. That's about $1.50 more than the local megastore where there are usually beat up or out of stock. Ordered another set of four. They have the 40 pound box for a penny less per pound. Arm & Hammer Super Scoop Clumping Litter, Unscented, 28-Pound,...

Hyperthyroid cat - kidney question by [email protected]
Hi there, I have a 12 year old hyperthyroid semi-feral female cat. She loves me, but she's very afraid of everyone else - so I'm trying to minimize the amount of vet trips for her. She weighs 6.5 pounds which is one pound underweight for her. Her creatinine is normal (1.2), but she's drinking &...

Neutering causes allergies? by John Doe
Every cat I've had that's been neutered has had scabby cat disease. Currently I have two indoor only unneutered females (they are doing fine) and they do not suffer from excessive licking. I'm wondering if neutering messes up there hormone production and has an effect on their resistance to...

dry run on having kittens by possum
last night the cat came inside crying, licking herself, wandering around, then went into a box in the closet I setup a month ago. As long as I sat there with her, talking to her, she was fairly calm. When I walked away she got anxious again, followed me around the house, crying. She finally calmed...

both friendly and aggressive by bob[_4_]
I saw a cat in the neighborhood chasing a squirrel. I beckoned the cat to come and he did. There is no collar. I don't know if it's a stray or a house cat. He came and rub against me and kept meowing. But as I pet him, he suddenly hissed and swatted with his claw once. Then he resumed rubbing...

Worst litter ever! by John Doe
I was in a hurry. The local megastore was out of my usual brand. I bought four 25 pound boxes of Fresh Step Fast Acting. If you use a bright flashlight in the litter box area, you can see how much dust there is. When I poured the new litter in there, smoke billowed out of the box. Really weird,...

How to stop too many cats/kittens from driving you insane... by John Doe
This is mainly for kittens. But my male cat enjoys chasing his tail, so it might work well for him too. Currently, he needs the exercise. I found a way to give my three kittens all the indoor exercise they can handle. Basically, it's just extending their tail 6 or 8 inches with a 1/4 inch thick...

Feline bladder cancer by cindys
I noticed that my cat, Amanda, who is just shy of 14 years old and has cardiomyopathy and the start of CRF was recently spending an inordinate amount of time scratching around in her litter box. I also had noticed she wasn't grooming quite as well as she used to (but it wasn't significant, and I...

will it hurt to feed them one bag of Friskies? by John Doe
All my indoor cats were once neighborhood strays. But I like to feed them better foods like Pro plan or science diet. Unfortunately, instead of the online merchant shipping Pro plan, they shipped Friskies. Will it hurt to feed them a big bag of Friskies? I promise not to make it a habit.

Sterilite boxes are SELF-CLEANING litter boxes disguised as storage boxes by John Doe
If you haven't tried them, you don't know what you're missing. They might not come in every size you need, but you just can't beat the fact that they are SELF-CLEANING. I think that's really cool. Talking about the ones with the smooth cloudy clear sides. Apparently it's the type of plastic. If...
