IAMS vs Whiskas? by Lord_Alex
Hello all, I'm new to the group and somewhat new to raising cats (I had cats as a kid 10 years ago). At the end of April I decided my house was too empty, so I went to the local animal shelter and adopted two cats - a 6 month old female shorthair (Xerxes) and a 2 year old male Persian ragdoll with...

Calico cats - Bad temperament? by Richard
I just adopted a stray 8-10 week calico female kitten. I told the vet that she was very sweet and I was handling her alot to help her become socialized. The vet replied "Let's hope she stays that way. Most calico cats are quite ill-tempered." She had worked several years at a cat shelter. I was...

Cat licking patio by The Mermaid
My cat (14) has started licking the patio - anyone know why he does this? Salt content? It seems very strange. Also, he just licks at his food and doesn't seem as interested as he used to be - have tried several types of food now. Do they do patio flavoured food???!!! ;o)

There's Something About Mary by Karma
As a witness to the destruction and devistation that occurred years ago in rec.gardens.roses, I was quite interested to see what was happening when I was made aware that an eerily similar situation was happening in some of the cat groups. It only took a few moments to verify that the poster...

Colour of cat = personality of cat? by Ellie Bentley
Stemming right back to Edgar Allan Poe's short story "The Black Cat" there has been a perception that "little black cat" is usually bright, intelligent, and utterly loving and devoted. (Although some times the bright intelligent black cat has been associated with the supernatural!) As for ginger...

Houston Humane Society is advertising front paw declawing!! by MaryL
This is disgusting! I wrote a few days ago to defend some of the HSUS practices, but this is absolutely revolting. Read what the Houston Humane Society (note: Houston, not the national HSUS) is advertising as a "Valentine's Day special" for cats (free neutering accompanied by a *reduced rate...

ants in the kitty litter by Jewelbar
Hi People! I'm just wondering if I should worry that there are ants in my cat's litter. They are only going after his urine. I know that if a person has diabetes, ants will be attracted to their toilets, so I was wondering if the same was for cats. He always looses weight over summer, but this...

Alternatives to Pill Pockets by [email protected]
I thought the Pill Pockets would be great, but my cat won't eat them. Can anyone suggest some other food that would be okay to hide a pill in? Are there any cat treats, for instance, that are soft enough to push a pill into? (Hiding the pill in his regular wet food doesn't do the trick -- he...

Half Siamese, Half Himalayan=? by Slimpickins
Hi everyone, I just found out that my dearly departed, 19 1/2 year old 'baby child' named Blue, was actually a half Siamese and half Himalayan. Blue's been 'gone' exactly one month ago, today-Dec.20th-04. So what exactly did this bloodline make him/Blue? A mix breed? Or, is there an actual name...

splay legs in 3 week old kitten by Mariaricardo
I hope there is someone out there who has had some experience (hopefully successfully), with splay legs in kittens. One of a litter of four born three weeks ago has hind legs that go out to the side, like a frog. He is able to walk and lift his abdomen up from the carpet, but his legs are weak. ...

Benefiber? by jmc
Poor Meep is still having some constipation problems. She gets as much water and wet food as she'll eat... and as she's very fussy, I doubt she'd go for the pumpkin that has been suggested before. I was wondering, is Benefiber (the clear, tasteless people fiber supp) safe for cats? What would...

Cat Cremation Urns by Margarita Salt
For the past couple of years I have been trying to find a nice, elegant urn for Kami's cremated remains when she goes. What I have found is either dull, cheesy, or too cutsie. There was one porcelain urn that I liked, but it's $277. The first time I saw it, it was $165--maybe I should have...

Sudden loss of mobility in front legs by turner.nigel
Hi, My cat had a sudden loss of mobility in both front paws. Our Vet says it is not a clot as she still has partial use of both paws and pulls away when you pinch her toes. She seems to have problems moving her legs toward her head. They seem to want to go towards her hind legs which makes her...

Declawing: glad I took the time by [email protected]
Well, I posted here many months ago regarding a stray that we decided to spay and keep. She turned into a beautiful cat with a nice shiny coat. She's still outside, and she sleeps on the deck in a nice little shingled house that I built for her. She's a good mouser, and we live next to a...
