Astroturf mats by John Doe
Years ago, the local megastore had three or four different types, but unfortunately they have stopped selling any of them here. Astroturf doormats work great for the cat litter box area. They work great for cat sleeping mats too, with some cover like a towel, because they are breezy and...

Do cats have a high pain tolerance by Al Kondo
I have two 7 month old cats who are health and very active. Sometimes when they chase themselves around the house, they sometimes bump themselves on a chair or table leg with a resounding "thunk". Yet, they don't even seem to break stride. If I were to engage a piece of furniture with the same...

Diet change by KenK
I'm thinking of switching my cat from Wellness canned food back to Fancy Feast after many many months. She doesn't seem to be getting nutrition from the Wellness, it appears to be going right through her. At first she was satisfied with 9 oz of Wellness a day, now 12 isn't enough. When she ate...

Hiya. Have a supremely annoying and occasionally affectionate 9-month old kitten and an older and loving tuxedo cat. Was just given a magnificent persian rug but it'd be a shame if the kitten tore it to shreds and there's no way I'll declaw them. Is there any kind of effective deterrant? I was...

Cats and soy products by [email protected]
Cat health experts: Does anyone know if soy is good/bad/harmless for cats? This would include edamame, tofu, and maybe soy milk. Not soy sauce, though. And I'm not referring to soy mixed into cat food for bulk. I'm asking this question for a friend, so I don't know all the details. But she...
