YouTube channel promoting child abuse... by John Doe[_2_]
I occasionally remember someone posting to this group about "the unthinkable happening". Apparently their cats were playing, or perhaps fighting and they weren't stopping it, and one of the cats got an eye clawed out. As someone who has managed cats for decades, I am very mindful of the risk of...

OT: Google actively promoting child abuse... by John Doe[_2_]
As someone who has managed cats for decades, I am very mindful of the risk of eye damage. Some kids just LOVE putting their face in the face of a cat. When you assume it has fully functional claws (like it should), that is hideously cringy. Check out this YouTube video. It's not graphically...

The new Tidy Cats unscented litter by John Doe[_2_]
If you are open to trying other litters and haven't tried the new Tidy Cats unscented ("free and clear" or something like that)... Looking at it, it is all smooth round pellets. That seems unusual. As I recall... The last Tidy Cats I bought was like tiny crushed rocks, not smooth and rounded at...

Where can I find help for feline Myelofibrosis + Anemia by Laura Fenik
We have a beautiful, white, almost seven years young female cat who has been unfortunately diagnosed with myelofibrosis and non-regenerative anemia. Thus far, we've had no luck with finding a specialty veterinarian who can treat these two diseases with a positive outcome. I find it very...

The PERMANENT solution to smelly cat urine by Justin Jason
One of the worst things about looking after a cat, is the putrid smell of urine they can leave all over the house. The problem is some cats completely ignore their litter boxes. They don’t even know it exists (despite your best efforts of showing them). But it’s not just the smell that’s...

Controlling humidity = better health by John Doe[_2_]
Been controlling humidity for perhaps 15 years. No more eye seepage and ears look very clean. Not like before. The only other thing that changed is perhaps their diet is better. Without a dehumidifier, the air conditioner and heater can be used simultaneously to reduce humidity, when needed....

After reading some very insightful posts here, I've decided to register to ask for your help. My cat Dicky is not doing well at all, and after a number of tests and visits to the vet, I'm not much wiser. Any tips or advice are more than welcome.

Resistant Fleas by Peter W.[_2_]
There is some evidence, especially in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions that some species of fleas are becoming resistant to some Fipronil-only topical flea medicines. Add to this the unusually warm and wet summer and fall, flea infestations are becoming common even in households where all...

Question by Mack A. Damia[_2_]
Say, what are you all doing in here flaming one another? This group is dedicated to the love of cats. Do try to remember that and take your sniping somewhere else. Pookie doesn't mind so much as she's a fighter, but Bubba is quite the sensitive one. She is still very nervous and wary over...

Ping-pong balls by John Doe[_2_]
I bought 12 "Penn" decent quality (lots of bounce) ping-pong balls at the local megastore. Most of them are on the floor. Also on the floor are three of those "midnight madness" or whatever they are called plastic balls with bells inside. We are getting a lot more use out of the ping-pong...

Beware of bully cats by John Doe[_2_]
They can destroy your other cats' lives. My best method so far for coping... Make a small closed belt perhaps 4 inches in diameter. Very easy to do with belt/strapping material and hot melt glue. It must be just the right size. You slip it over their head and pull one of their legs, paw...

Found a copy of my eternal poop scoop! by John Doe[_2_]
I found the exact copy at Target. I suspect that is where I bought it 25 + years and literally tons of litter ago. For two dollars. Every tiny little feature is precisely the same, including all of the plastic injection points. The old one has a number 2 on it, this one has a number 4 on it, on...

The benefits of controlling humidity by John Doe[_2_]
After over 5 years experience... I believe controlling humidity has done much good for my cats. It is easy enough. Buy a couple of dirt cheap humidity sensors from the local megastore (multiple meters provides more accuracy). Then use your air conditioner, maybe in combination with an...
