Feeding schedule for cats at home alone by Rhino[_3_]
I may have to go out of town periodically in the coming months to deal with my mother's health issues. I used to bring my cats with me (in a carrier) when I had a car but I've got financial issues that keep me from being able to afford a car for the time being. That means I'm likely going to...

wrestling by John Doe[_2_]
I've always enjoyed wrestling (real wrestling, not professional wrestling). The newcomer female is bigger than my male. And she is a bully. Now they are warming up to each other, they are frequently wrestling. Most of it is friendly, but sometimes they get rough. He is probably in it for the...

Cat Vision by John Doe[_2_]
My Fenix HL-50 (I guess that's the number) headlamp lets me see cats at night. I was ready to feed the neutered outside cat. The only way I could tell it was there (two yards away) is by the bright reflection of my headlamp on its eyes, without even pointing the lamp directly at the cat....

After 8 years, my feral is using the Skyway! by John Doe[_2_]
The hard-core feral cat has been here for eight years. It has a loft in another room that's connected to their Skyway. Stays there most of the time. But when it exits to eat and use the box, it always takes the shortest route to the floor. But over the last several weeks or so, perhaps having...

Peeing in corners by Sylvia M[_3_]
I've been out of town, visiting my daughter and her family, and attending my granddaughters university graduation. . . that's the good part. My daughter's cat, Cleo, started peeing in corners of the room with her litterbox, and on the rug in the foyer. This may have started when they acquired a...

Best manual litter box by William Vetter

My hard-core feral by William Vetter
John Doe wrote: It's the weirdest thing. If anything in its area is changed, takes weeks getting used to it. It's the only cat that has not used their skyway. The only exception is for getting up to and down from its loft. There are two exit/entry directions it can go on the skyway, left...

Growth Spurt by William Vetter
I brought home a female gray domestic shorthair kitten from a petshop that was full of yiping puppies. A few cats in a rabbit hutch on the floor in a hallway. This one was small, unsocialized, runtish, sat on paws, didn't move. She went into first estrus at 4.5 months. Another heat every 5...

High-ptiched beep tone in you're garden? Noise by [email protected]
I receive complaints about the Cat Deterrent. The elderly in particular use a cat-deterrent in their garden. It is a small apparatus with a speaker attached to it. It produces a high-pitched bleep of more than a 100 decibel. The sound is mostly only audible for children, youngsters and people...

Controlling fleas by humidity by John Doe[_2_]
I just got wind of the idea that fleas can be controlled by humidity. We have a very hot summer and I've been using the air conditioner a lot. It removes tons of water. My male cat's skin condition has improved to nearly 100%. Apparently it's a seasonal thing. I'll be prepared from now on. Will...

Sifting litter box idea by John Doe[_2_]
The main part of the box would be made from the same plastic and process that Sterilite uses for their clear smooth plastic boxes. I think it would require three boxes, or two boxes per area plus one roving box. Every box would look like a standard litter box with tall sides depending on your...

15-y/o male cat with bowel issues & occasional vomiting by BoonevillePhil
We have a jet black male 15 y/o cat that has occasional bouts of vomiting & diarrhea. He has lost some weight but not enough to be a concern, his coat is glossy, & he hasn't been lethargic. He yowls more, especially when deciding to go to the litterbox. But he purrs when we cuddle with him &...

Littermaid LM980 by John Doe[_2_]
Anybody have actual experience with Littermaids? I'm thinking the real potential benefit is only that it sweeps the litter after each use. It's very simple, it moves a rake through the litter. I can make something that does better. The only difference is it would not be automatic. I know there...

I've heard that pumpkin is good for constipation in cats, but I have no idea how to get him to eat it. Are there any other remedies I could try?
