  • What can I do to make it easier to trim my cats'claws?

    Best answer: My cat used to always be a fight as well. Back when I was single, I typically had to pick her up, sit down on the couch with a gap between me and the armrest just wide enough for her, and drop her in that gap on her back with her facing the back of the couch. That way, I could use my elbow to pin her down and still... show more
    Best answer: My cat used to always be a fight as well. Back when I was single, I typically had to pick her up, sit down on the couch with a gap between me and the armrest just wide enough for her, and drop her in that gap on her back with her facing the back of the couch. That way, I could use my elbow to pin her down and still have access to her back feet (she is front-declawed). Now that I have someone else in the house, One of us cradles the cat like a baby while the other clips the claws.

    Another option would be Claw Caps. They are basically press-on nails that keep the cat from scratching, and typically last about 5 weeks before you have to replace them. Eventually, you still have to trim the claws, but it becomes infrequent enough that you can make that part of a normal vet visit.

    Best answer: Declawing a cat is a really big decision, and one that can have permanent repercussions for you and your animal. I'll try to summarize some information for you.

    Declawing a cat is no simple procedure. It's not simply like trimming their nails or even cutting them off entirely. A cats claw is actually infused with their finger, so declawing them is basically like chopping off part of their fingers. If you want to compare it with a human procedure, it would be likely chopping off your fingers where they bend. It is very painful for the cat and has been banned in many countries for being inhumane.

    While declawing a cat obviously removes the risk that they will scratch you and damage your house, it poses other risks. Many cats are reported to have mood changes after the operation, and some tend to be more aggressive and bite more (and a cat's bite is MUCH more dangerous than getting scratched). Declawing also takes away their natural weapon- should your cat ever find himself against another animal, he will have not way to defend himself.

    In summary, you CAN declaw your cat. It's not the end of the world for the cat, and many declawed cats live healthy, happy lives. But it's a BIG decision to consider, and it may have negative repercussions for you and your kitty.

    Her cat litter box is down in the basement. It’s always been there and it’s always clean. She would just walk downstairs and go, but now she’s acting weird. She’ll cry over and over and stand at the top of the stairs staring at me. I usher her to go downstairs and she does a little but it’s like I have to walk down the stairs with her. I know she has to go to the bathroom whenever she does this because once we get down there she goes. Does anyone understand why she’s doing this? She has also peed in my bed two times in the past week. I’m not sure if she can’t get down stairs but she doesn’t have a problem getting around normally. She’s playful and jumps around still. She’s been alive for about 7-8 years, so maybe she’s getting old? I’m not sure.

Are there any other ways to tell a male from a female kitten? Like face shape and attitude?

  • If my male cat s heart failed during mini-surgery for removing testicles, could he have a paiful death (while still under the anesthesia)?

    My male cat is 11, unneutered, and only now has started vocalizing in the night. I am very afraid to castrate him now, I love him so much and I don t want to lose him because of a surgery that I would plan. :( he is too old to be doing this surgery now and his heart might not resist the anesthesia.

  • Why is my cat ripping open his litter box liner?

    I have a fairly large cat (part mane coon) and so bought him an xl litter box with xl plastic liner bags.

    I have a fairly large cat (part mane coon) and so bought him an xl litter box with xl plastic liner bags. The liners don’t fit perfectly and have some folds and air bubbles when I first place them however, i use enough litter to weigh the bag down and make it flat. Anyway, my cat has been pushing all of his litter to one side of the box and even when there’s no litter left on the other side he continues to scratch at the liner ripping tears in it until a large hole eventually forms. I even saw him standing outside of the box reaching into it to scratch at the empty liner. I’m not sure why he’s doing this so I’m wondering if any other cat owners out there have an explanation or any suggestions as to what I can do to make him stop. Also I’d prefer to keep the liners as they make cleaning the box much easier.

    Best answer: 2 times a day. More if you want (just split the same amount of food into more meals) but most people just stick with 2 because its easiest. 1 meal a day is not enough.

    I feed all my adults 5.5-6 oz of canned a day. Should be fine for your girl too since shes about the same size as some of mine. May need more if shes active. I would just start with the 5.5-6 oz a day and monitor her weight. She should only lose 1-2% of her body weight weekly. If she is losing more than that, increase food. If shes not losing anything, decrease.
    If you feed kibble I have no idea how much to feed since I haven't fed kibble in years. If you feed kibble you should switch to canned. It helps with weight loss and is overall healthier.
    This will help you

    (Reposting this because everyone just called me a bad pet owner and called me names for some reason last time ((if you intend to be mean then don’t comment por favor I’m too sensitive for that))) We got her when she was around a week old, a local cat had her in my neighbors yard. We would always see my neighbors daughter hurt the kitten by throwing her up in the air and letting her fall to the ground. So my sister and I went over there one night and took her and we raised her. She was never abused at our house, we’ve had cats our whole life and my entire family loves animals to death. We’ve done nothing but show her love and now she’s about two years old and she’s had kittens of her own, she attacks her own kittens if they get too close and she attacks our legs if we walk too close to her. If she’s laying on the couch and we start petting her she’ll attack our hand, just a second ago my little brother went and tried to give her a kiss on her head and she attacked his face and left him bleeding. I’m assuming the abuse and being taken away from her mother as a kitten made her so aggressive but I’m not sure. (Also they’re all spayed) Any advice?

    I gave my cat treats from a new bag. A few hours later, she started vomiting what looked like bright red blood. She vomited about twelve times overnight, and looked like she felt terrible. She wouldn't eat anything else. By morning she had stopped vomiting, but still wouldn't eat anything. I realize there is a possibility that food coloring could have made the vomit look like blood, but seeing that she occasionally vomits hairballs with food and it doesn't look like that, I don't think it was food coloring. I am wondering who I should report it to, so they can look into it. Thanks.
