I think certain cats come into our lives to teach us something. We may not know what that 'something' is for month/years. Or as someone wise said, until I the student am ready to learn. Meanwhile it's frustrating. Why can't I figure out what Ritz is telling/teaching me! Vent all you want! PS: have you tried putting foil paper on the countertops (or, would he eat them too.....)?
Thank you so much for your efforts and caring. I fell in love with several stray and some blind cats while I vacationed in Greece but knew it was impractical for me to take any home. My resident cat would have strongly disapproved. Each and every country has its own rules and regulations regarding bringing cats (dogs, etc) into the country; the rules are very specific to the country. You should contact the Egyptian Society for Mercy to Animals; email mona@esmaegypt.org. ...
And, do keep a look out for sales; HT and My Pet Carnivore have them frequently. I'd go that route for proteins I can't buy in the USA, like Llama or kangaroo.
Hugs and prayers. Personally if I were you I'd start/continue to take lots of pictures and videos. And do the cream cheese and danish diet (basically, what ever he wants to eat he can have).
Have you checked out My Pet Carnivore ? They ship from Indiannapolis, and have LOTS of different proteins. I do not know if they have a minimum order. I too finally--after saying I would for two years--got a freezer at a yard sale for $50. Right size for what I need. I only have ordered once from Hare Today (pre-freezer). I will be watching their sales; missed the one for Rabbit fur and all. Once factor that keeps me from ordering is the minimum amount, and volume. ...
Oh what adorable kittens! Yes them using the litter box is a good sign--and it also instinct. To bury poop and pee (and, sometimes, food). I forgot to add that you're doing an even more stupendous job in socializing kittens: the general rule of thumb is that socializing feral kittens over four months old is really really difficult (some would say impossible). So the fact that the cats will eat from your hands is wonderful! And the mother cat: actually, she doesn't look...
I think fur can change according to climate. I know it is dryer in the winter, and Ritz' skin seems to twitch more then. You can try to get him to drink more water--and the water in Boston is different from the water in Finland. Might try bottled water. But you mention feeding him more fish: are they any other dietary changes since you moved from Boston to Finland (and, how long ago was that). Even if you were feeding your cat fish in Boston, no doubt the type of fish...
The reason I do that is because I can't possibly know ALL of the details and often don't know enough about the problem to know what questions to ask. And almost 99.99% of us aren't vet technicians much less vets so providing medical advice is against Forum rules--for good reason. It also helps me to know why the person doesn't want to take their cat to the vets: money (there is a sticky for that)? Don't trust the vet (find another one? ) Fear (the delay in action may...
First thank you so much for caring and taking these kittens and the mommy cat under your wing. Kittens. To the extent possible, block off places the kittens/cats can hide. Then get the kittens into a room however you can. If that means grabbing them, do so. They may be traumatized but it will only last for a short time, as in, when you resume giving them food, playing with them, etc. Cats for better or worse have relatively short term memories. Mother cat: Wait as...
Could be either the cat bullying him or something more serious. Watch to see if he's peeing/pooping/eating normally, though expect a decrease in appetite if either. Can you shut blinds so your cat doesn't see the Bengal cat?
