• Any advice for treatment-resistant diarrhea in cats?

    (not my cat. asking for a friend) She has been to the vet. They said she had IBS. They kept her for 4 days, gave her meds, and charged $1200.00... and the diarrhea is back. It's really bad.

    (not my cat. asking for a friend) She has been to the vet. They said she had IBS. They kept her for 4 days, gave her meds, and charged $1200.00... and the diarrhea is back. It's really bad. Her butt is constantly dripping. There is a poop spot wherever she lays. She is being quarantined in the laundry room to keep her off the carpet, but that's no life. Please! Any advice? Right now, they are trying boiled chicken, shredded and mixed with a little of the cooking water and a little canned pumpkin. It seems to be helping SLIGHTLY, but they are not sure it's going to do the trick. Thanks!

  • Is it okay to feed a 5 week old kitten adult cat food?

    Best answer: A 5 week old kitten should still be with it's mother & littermates for another 3-4 weeks. NO, adult cat food is not suitable, it is not nutritionally complete for a kitten. It should be on kitten food perhaps with still some KMR mixed in depending on how well it can eat. The kitten is too young to be... show more

  • Which of my two cats should i feed the healthy and expensive cat food?? help?

    Best answer: I'm quite sure that a bag of cat food is big enough for 2 cats to share. It's not fair to the cats, that you're going to only feed 1 cat the healthy expensive food but you're going to feed the other cat human food and homemade food.

    Best answer: I'm quite sure that a bag of cat food is big enough for 2 cats to share. It's not fair to the cats, that you're going to only feed 1 cat the healthy expensive food but you're going to feed the other cat human food and homemade food. Its not appropriate to feed a cat human food and "homemade cat food" it's not healthy at all either. Both cats should be eating proper cat food. Neither should be fed a full diet of human food and homemade cat food, I'd doubt it live that long with a crappy diet like that.

    Think about it, if you were one of the cats, would it be fair that you get fed table scraps and human food not even made for cats, while your friend the other cat gets good healthy expensive proper cat food? That sure doesn't sound fair to me. The cat fed human food and homade food would probably end up with health problems later in life for not having a proper diet.

    The answer is feed both cats the expensive food you bought. Doesn't matter what their personalities are they both should have the food. The bag is big enough to share.

  • Is it true cats sleep 99 percent of the day and don't care about their owners besides getting food from them!?

    If true that doesn't sound like a very fun pet!

  • Where did you get your cats from?

    Where did you get your cats from?

    Best answer: Purrdita and Clancy from a pet store in Shoreline, Washington. People would bring in stray litters. The people at the pet store would deflea them and deworm them and give them their first round of shots. I did not buy the cats from the "breeders" or puppy and kitten mills as I don't trust them.

Tigger and Shasta came from Cat City in Seattle which is run by PAWS. Tigger was a stray cat--part of an absolutely beautiful litter. Shasta was surrendered by someone and I don't know why they would have surrendered such a lovely cat--but I got her and it was my gain!

    My family and I are moving to SC from PA over the summer. Unfortunately this means we are going to have to leave behind the 3 feral cats we ve been feeding for a good 14 years. It s not possible to relocate them, but we still want them cared for. We don t know if whoever buys our house will be willing to feed them either. I practically grew up with these cats, and am scared of leaving them behind. Can anyone give me advice on coping with leaving them, or what to do in general? Thanks.

  • If dry foods are bad for cats, so what is the purpose of dry food?

    Best answer: The real purpose? Convenence on the part of the owner, not for the cat. ALL dry food is not good for cats. It doesn't keep teeth clean like many believe including vets. It is now the leading cause of UTI's, obesity, early liver/kidney damage. Cats do a lot better on canned and/or a raw diet then any... show more

    Cats do a lot better on canned and/or a raw diet then any kind of dry. Some dry mixed with canned is ok, but its not good to just leave dry out for the cat to eat all the time. The only dry our cats and kittens get is a few pieces on their canned food. They are fed canned food and raw food (which I mix myself - beef, turkey, chicken).

    My cat is 8 months old now, about to be 9 months. Just last week, he was running around, playing, coming in my room and hopping on my bed without any care in the world. Suddenly he's become afraid of the hallway and usually doesn't come in my room anymore. He'll stop at the doorway and creep in a little, start sniffing the floor and sniffing the air in the room, then walk back out. This seems to only be happening to my room, because he goes in other rooms easily and stays in there for hours. What could this mean? He doesn't even come to visit me anymore. Normally he walks in my room and relaxes in my bed with me. He's usually so affectionate and wants my attention. He doesn't even meow at my door in the mornings anymore to wake me up so I can feed him. Any idea what's gotten into him? Thanks for the help..

  • Is it worth it to switch my cats to a raw diet?

    I have 3 cats, 2 are 13 and the other is 12, and have an automatic feeder. I feed my dog(1 1/2) a raw diet, so I was just wondering if it'd be worth to try and switch them since they're kind of old
