new Wellness dry food by ---MIKE---
Wellness sent me some samples of their new dry cat food. It was introduced in January and they eliminated the garlic. They didn't think there was enough garlic to be a problem but the public conception of a problem led them to make the change. I feed mostly canned food but use the dry for...

Persistence with mats by ---MIKE---
The past few years I have had to take Tiger to the vet to get "de-matted". This required sedation which was expensive as well as somewhat risky. This year I have tried to keep them under control. Despite my efforts, he developed mats on both sides of his hips. He won't let me use clippers or...

Tiger's mats are gone by ---MIKE---
After slowly breaking up the mats on Tiger's hips I have been very diligent about brushing (with the Zoom Groom) and combing several times a day. Luckily he likes this. So far there has been no signs of new mats. I really wanted to avoid a trip to TED for sedating and shaving like last year. ...

they're REALLY fighting what do I do???? by ---MIKE---
I have heard that putting a little vanilla extract on them helps to make them smell the same. ---MIKE--- In the White Mountains of New Hampshire (44 15' N - Elevation 1580')

Walmart is selling cats! by ---MIKE---
Don't get upset - they are not live cats. They are full size, pure white and are very realistic. They open their mouths to meow, purr, move their heads and roll their eyes. I don't think they eat or use the litter box. I was tempted but they are $40. ---MIKE--- In the...

Living Hell by ---MIKE---
Philip Meech asked: If we were to upgrade to three litter boxes, would those be side by side or distributed around our small house? If you really want to solve the problem, you should have SIX litter boxes. I would try distributing them around the house. I have two cats and three litter...

Tiger's mat by ---MIKE---
Tiger has had a bad matting on his left hip for a couple of months. I have tried a mat breaker, combs, brushes etc. but Tiger used to object. With a wire bristle brush and persistance, I finally got the mat off this morning. Here is a picture of the brush that did the trick along with the...

Tiger likes the Zoom Groom by ---MIKE---
I have been grooming Tiger with the Zoom Groom for the last few weeks. He seems to like it. Hopefully, when his hair has fully grown back this will prevent mats. This could take a year or more. ---MIKE--- In the White Mountains of New Hampshire (44 15' N - Elevation...

OT Clean Shower problem by ---MIKE---
I have been using Clean Shower after taking a shower - using the one labelled "for tile showers". I find that I get choked up from the mist and have trouble breathing for a couple of hours. I never noticed this with the regular product. Has any one else had this problem? A call to the company led...

Kami May be Dying by ---MIKE---
Margarita said: Yikes! Phil said the Fancy Feast was low phos. Thanks for this. Phil never said that ALL Fancy Feast was low in phos. He mentioned which ones were and also stated that Fancy Feast had changed some of their formulas. Do we know how recent the chart was? I would trust Phil...

Depression in Old Cat After 1st Vet Visit in Years by ---MIKE---
Violet wrote: I spent all day yesterday reading archives about older cats, allergies to cats, what to do when your cat is literally making you ill. There are medications (some over the counter such as Sudafed and some prescription) that will control your allergy.

This group has gone to pot by ---MIKE---
As of now there are over 400 posts on the "crazy cat" thread. The new posts have nothing to do with the original post. These posts have pushed useful posts to the bottom. Why not start a completely new thread if you want to argue? ---MIKE--- In the White Mountains of New Hampshire (44...

Silent clippers by ---MIKE---
I would like to be able to trim Tiger's butt hair. Unfortunately, the sound of the clippers frightens him and makes the job impossible. Is there such a thing as a silent clipper? As it is now, I have to take him to the vet who tranquilizes him to do it. ---MIKE--- In the White Mountains of...

Fishers by ---MIKE---
When discussing the dangers to outside cats, fishers have been mentioned as a dangerous predator. I know they are found in my locality. This year's issue of the Old Farmer's Almanac has an article about them complete with a picture. ---MIKE--- In the White Mountains of New Hampshire (44...

Tiger was shaved by ---MIKE---
This morning I picked Tiger up at the vets. He had all his mats shaved off and now he looks naked. All of his beautiful fur is gone. He weighed in at 22.3 pounds but in this picture he doesn't look fat. ---MIKE--- In the White Mountains of New Hampshire (44 15' N -...

Hissing Tiger by ---MIKE---
He was at the vet for "shaving" three weeks ago and had a complete blood check - all normal. His hissing is nothing new - he has always done that. It's just his personality! ---MIKE--- In the White Mountains of New Hampshire (44 15' N - Elevation 1580')

No poops from Tiger by ---MIKE---
Usually Tiger presents large (and smelly) poops. For the last two days I have seen very little. He is eating and acting normal. I gave him some Laxatone on a plate (which he seems to like) in the hopes that this will get things moving. ---MIKE--- In the White Mountains of...
