Hey, I am moving from a 700 square foot apartment to a 2100 square foot house. My two cats have never lived in that much space. Lat November we moved to a new basement apartment, where one of my cats were very anxious and didn't get over it for weeks. He hid, wouldn't eat and acted really sad. He finally did get over it and now we are moving again. I would like to reduce his anxiety this time. The last time I moved the cats last after putting the bedroom together, and then kept them in there until the relaxed a little. I had the moving boxes out for weeks and their carrier so they could get used to it, I fed them small meals gave them all their toys and stayed with them. I don't know what else I could have done... any...» read more
I've had these kitties for about 7 weeks now. They were about 6 weeks when I found them in my shed. Mama was with them but chased me away hissing so I made the choice to trap mom and take the kittens so I could socialize them and get them in indoor homes. Whether that was a good choice, I don't know.» read more
Theodore has had issues regarding urinary blockages, he has had 3 surgeries to correct it. Anyhow, at the moment the main issue is getting him to drink water. He refuses to drink water from a fountain or flat dish and if it is cold, he refuses. So at the moment, we are syringe feeding him warm water. How can I provide warm water and not have to syringe it to him? I love him but I really don't want to be feeding him water this way forever!» read more
Most cats are inside only cats, and although statistics show that inside-only cats are safer and healthier than outside-only cats, there are still hidden dangers in the home. Unfortunately, cats have bad habits of swallowing things that weren't intended to be swallowed.
Dr. Patricia Hague, owner of the Cat Hospital of Las Colinas, said that it never ceases to surprise her, the things she pulls out of a cat's stomach. She treated one cat who tried to eat a balloon, ribbon-first. Another cat swallowed embroidery thread that happened to have a needle at the other end. Fortunately they both survived. Sondra York, former cat chairperson for the Animal Rescue League, in Denton County Texas, recommends...» read more
I can crate Baloo, Smokey, Khol, Froggie (if she's around), and Little Dot (if she's around). Treebie I can trap with the drop trap. Bean is new, and not yet neutered. He showed up a few days before we found out we have to move. I'm pretty sure I'll wait to trap him, so he goes to the vet, is neutered, and then caged for the relocation. His eating spot is under the drop trap. I'm a *little* nervous about trapping him before Treebie. Treebie bolted when we released him from the Hav-a-hart last year and disappeared for six months. If he sees Bean trapped in the drop trap, I worry he won't go near it again. As Treebs is now friendly.... I'd rather take the risk that Bean won't go eat in the drop trap. We may be able to get him in the...» read more
