For the Holidays by Peter W.
No self-respecting cat will eat a toxic plant. The only way this would happen is if they already were on a restricted/inadequate diet exceedingly low in roughage. Poinsettias may be toxic, but not sufficiently toxic to be dangerous. However, Lilies of any kind, and anything in the lily family are...

Litter Robot 3 "open-air" by John Doe[_2_]
Bought one. Not sure about prior models, but it is okay. Doubt I would have liked the preceding models' small openings. With the current model you can easily wipe off the inside, so you can remove the shield, giving them a little more room inside. Mine slightly bobs up and down as it cycles. I...

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...

Cat Ass Trophy by Peter W.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/cslhtgas3dcl1oi/Cat%20Ass%20Trophy.jpg?dl=0 Our young guy, Seamus, caught a young squirrel out in the dog/cat yard (cat-proof fencing). He ate most of it, but saved a trophy. Just doing what every cat wishes it could do.

Singing to cats by John Doe[_2_]
I sing badly, but... After 10 years of singing to my hard-core feral, it is finally coming out to me. Also... Singing works with strays. You can see them relax immediately when you start singing to them. Not talking about a ballad, just a few words repeated over and over again. Monotone, does...

Hard-core feral softening up after 10 years by John Doe[_2_]
Never say never. After 10 long years, my hard-core feral appears to be softening up to me. Early on, I began singing (badly) to her because it visibly relaxed her. Over the last month or so, she has started coming around me while I am in my computer chair. I can usually gently grab her tail as...

John Doe by [email protected][_2_]
Hmmmm… I have come to doubt this individual’s understanding of what a “Feral” cat actually is. There are, typically four types of cats seen in outdoor settings, broad brush: a) Housecats that are allowed outdoors – common enough. In some areas, outdoor access is a requirement to...

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...

Filter fan makes litter duty easy by John Doe[_2_]
My filter fan broke. Before, I would pick it up and take it into the closet where there big litter pale is. Put the filter fan on high, scooped, and then sprayed some bleach into the clump container before tying it up. I knew the filter fan drew all of the dust away, but I did not realize how...

Looks like 1/8 inch recycled rubber mat works well for climbing by John Doe[_2_]
Besides the fact that it stinks horribly for weeks, it has started shedding fine particles. The thick stuff I used before worked great. It showed signs of wear, but did not shed any rubber. Next time I will try getting that other formula in a thinner version. Looking back at my posts......

Coat matting by reilloc
Advise, please: my long-haired cat, who's got a personality more suspicious than a mother/father-in-law (take your choice) and a hair trigger when it comes to any sudden noise (and when the trigger trips the creature turns into a buzz saw that must get away) has significant matting of his coat....

Old cat can't keep any food down? by zhenzhen
Hello, I'm fairly new here but I just wanted some advice about my 16 year old cat Spot? He's still quite a mobile, vocal cat but he's unable to eat pretty much anything without throwing it up a few minutes later; have tried Fancy Feast tuna, Dine, Whiskas wet food, and just plain old Coles brand...

Introducing new food gradually by John Doe[_2_]
Introducing new food gradually by the book is great, but you must be on the lookout for a gradual decrease in food intake. That is likely especially true if you have multiple cats and one of them has an eating disorder, you must keep an eye on that one.

Cat Passed away by Charles Devlin
We brought our cat into the Vet today for minor eye surgery ( lower eye lid). Our cat (Phoebe) was 8 years old, and in good health. 5 hours later, the Vet called to say he was very sorry, but Phoebe passed away after surgery. My wife and I are devastated. We used all our savings to pay for the...

Minitablets help medicate picky cats by Internetado
Of all pets, cats are often considered the most difficult ones to medicate. Very small minitablets with flavors or flavor coatings can help cat owners commit to the treatment and make cats more compliant to it, while making it easier to regulate dosage and administer medication...

Carrier Case by Mack A. Damia[_2_]
I have two, and Pookie is about one year older than Bubba. Both females. I spoil them; they are house cats and do not roam outside. Recently, we took them to the vet to get their bottoms trimmed of long fur as they were having accidents in the litter pan. We got Pookie in the carrier alright,...
