Loss of appetite, sores, anisocoria; what's wrong with my cat? by mh77
After reading some very insightful posts here, I've decided to register to ask for your help. My cat Dicky is not doing well at all, and after a number of tests and visits to the vet, I'm not much wiser. Any tips or advice are more than welcome. Dicky is a male tabby of 11 years old, I've had both...

Resistant Fleas by Peter W.[_2_]
There is some evidence, especially in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions that some species of fleas are becoming resistant to some Fipronil-only topical flea medicines. Add to this the unusually warm and wet summer and fall, flea infestations are becoming common even in households where all...

Question by Mack A. Damia[_2_]
Say, what are you all doing in here flaming one another? This group is dedicated to the love of cats. Do try to remember that and take your sniping somewhere else. Pookie doesn't mind so much as she's a fighter, but Bubba is quite the sensitive one. She is still very nervous and wary over...

Ping-pong balls by John Doe[_2_]
I bought 12 "Penn" decent quality (lots of bounce) ping-pong balls at the local megastore. Most of them are on the floor. Also on the floor are three of those "midnight madness" or whatever they are called plastic balls with bells inside. We are getting a lot more use out of the ping-pong...

Beware of bully cats by John Doe[_2_]
They can destroy your other cats' lives. My best method so far for coping... Make a small closed belt perhaps 4 inches in diameter. Very easy to do with belt/strapping material and hot melt glue. It must be just the right size. You slip it over their head and pull one of their legs, paw...

Spring Cleaning and Cats - Re-Post by Peter W.[_2_]
Now that spring is just around the corner, some of you might be itching to do the traditional Spring Cleaning, usually a good thing. But your cats may not think so: Liquid Lysol (or any phenol-based disinfecting cleaner): Harmful or fatal to cats of all sizes from Tigers to domestics in...

Found a copy of my eternal poop scoop! by John Doe[_2_]
I found the exact copy at Target. I suspect that is where I bought it 25 + years and literally tons of litter ago. For two dollars. Every tiny little feature is precisely the same, including all of the plastic injection points. The old one has a number 2 on it, this one has a number 4 on it, on...

The benefits of controlling humidity by John Doe[_2_]
After over 5 years experience... I believe controlling humidity has done much good for my cats. It is easy enough. Buy a couple of dirt cheap humidity sensors from the local megastore (multiple meters provides more accuracy). Then use your air conditioner, maybe in combination with an...

Now that the warm weather has come to the northern hemisphere, it is important for those indoor cat people to understand a few truisms that many would like to deny: a) Mosquito-borne Parasites, Diseases & Viruses: parasites such as heartworm, viruses such as West Nile and diseases such as Horse...

Another method for feeding dry food by John Doe[_2_]
One of my cats mainly gets Purina Pro plan dry after it is placed in a zipper sandwich bag, filled with 50% water, sealed, and let saturate before refrigerating. Take some practice to get the mixture correct. Been doing that for 7+ years. About a year ago, I discovered another method that is...

Beware of cat on window air-conditioners by John Doe[_2_]
Beware of cat on window air-conditioners. This might not apply to anyone here, not suggesting it is anything but an unfortunate rare occurrence. But just in case... My neutered outside feral attempted to jump from the window AC unit onto her nearby covered platform (with a heating pad)....

Full Circuit on Male Cat Blockages by Peter W.
Do you all remember when male cats were supposed to be neutered as soon as possible as there was "No effect on future urinary problems"? And everyone looked down on people delaying neutering to allow male cats to mature? Not so much any more. Our 4-year, 6-month old Maine Coon mix went in for...

For the Holidays by Peter W.
No self-respecting cat will eat a toxic plant. The only way this would happen is if they already were on a restricted/inadequate diet exceedingly low in roughage. Poinsettias may be toxic, but not sufficiently toxic to be dangerous. However, Lilies of any kind, and anything in the lily family are...

Litter Robot 3 "open-air" by John Doe[_2_]
Bought one. Not sure about prior models, but it is okay. Doubt I would have liked the preceding models' small openings. With the current model you can easily wipe off the inside, so you can remove the shield, giving them a little more room inside. Mine slightly bobs up and down as it cycles. I...
