Feral cat visitor with fur problem by AL_n
I've been feeding a feral cat that has been coming into my house via my late cat's cat flap. This small black cat is extremely cautious, however he now lets me stroke him while he's eating, and sometimes beforehand. He seems to have something wrong with his fur on the rear 3/4 of his body...

Another benefit of Astroturf... by John Doe
Cats enjoy clawing on it. Apparently does not hurt the Astroturf, yet. So it gives them good clawing exercise. My indoor cats have been doing it for many months. Just noticed the outside (neutered) cat claw on some Astroturf that's on the porch. They are attracted to it for that purpose.

One paw withdrawn by The Doctor
Yesterday out tabby Boots looks as if he hurt his front left paw. He was cranky that he decided to hid in our yard. I thought keeping him in would be a better option than letting him stay out. We got him back in and off to the vet it was. The vet was nice (X-rays at C$190 that is high).

Duffy the blind *dog* regains his sight by MaryL[_2_]
There have been a number of recent stories about how Duffy the Irish terrier regained his sight. He lost his sight due to diabetes, but surgery was successful after Duffy’s diabetes was brought under control. Naturally, I immediately thought of my Duffy. Here is the story about Duffy the...

Whats the best cat food in the UK. To keep my cat healthy? by Mzh4
I'm wondering what people think of cat foods on the market at the moment. I'm worried that my cats food isn't doing her much good. Her breath stinks! She's had a dental check up and all is well. She doesn't eat biscuit as she doesn't seem to like it, no matter what ones I try her on. Currently...

Is there such a thing as "cat whistle"? by RPSinha
I have been asking a lot of questions, but please bear with me! My latest is: Is there such a thing as "cat whistle", something cats can hear and humans can't. (Similar to what's available for dogs.) Sometimes we have to go looking for our cat, who may be hiding who knows where. It is quite a...

my calico by John Doe
I can't believe it was on the street, what a great cat. Distinct markings, long hair. Very small though. If you put your hand over its head, it will stand up and bump its head against your hand. Is that hereditary or did somebody teach it? At least one of its kittens, the light kitten that looked...

Selective pet feeder recommendations by Arthur Rubin
Please suggest other groups this should be submitted to.... It's been a long time since I've accessed Usenet or Google groups. I'm looking for a feeder which only one cat can use; I have three cats here, and one of them can be free-fed. Others should be on a restricted diet. I tried the...

hair/fur shedding by whisky-dave
My cat is white and tends to shed far more hair than my previous black/white and mixed fur cats have. Do white haired cats shed more or is it just that it notices more. i.e do I have to give up wearing coloured clothes ;-) She's not too keen on being brushed/combed either A few pictures...

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,...
