Posts by Ritz

Yes, this animal practice is known for being expensive and I was somewhat afraid that the charge would be in excess of "reasonable and customary".
Welcome to The Cat Site, sorry it's under these conditions. I believe some 'rearrangement' is normal post spay--but I'd be worried if I noticed it 4 to 5 months post spaying. I would call the vet, just to be sure and for peace of mind.
Welcome to The Cat Site. I would first just pet his paws, kind of play with his fingers/claws. That way you can maybe determine how sensitive your cat's paws are. I know of one cat who had no problem with me cutting his nails, but Ritz hates it, and I only do it when she is asleep. Once you get an idea how sensitive they are which in turn will help you how many nails at a time can you clip before Kitty grows impatient!, then go ahead and try clipping one or two nails and...
You feed your cat the best food you can afford and that suits your lifestyle. That is all us humans or more importantly Cats can (should) ask of us. I fed prey model raw in part because I can find chicken and beef on sale at any grocery store, but some of the higher end brands only at PetCo/PetSmart, which don't open at 6 a.m. (why oh why ?) And because I have the time (I live alone, no responsibilities) and interest in raw feeding; not everyone can. I am currently...
That's a hard decision to make. Who have you reached out to for financial help/trapping help with these cats? Where do you live (county/state)? I have to (want to) believe there is a very low cost/free spay neuter clinic in your area. I know some county governments give free vouchers to pet owners to get their cats/dogs spayed/neutered . Also, check the websites of low cost/non profit s/n clinics. They can apply for (and receive) grants from various companies...
I am introducing Ritz (female, around 5.5 years old) to another cat for the second time (male, I think a year younger than Ritz.) Ritz never adjusted to the first cat who I was fostering. I don't think there is such a thing as too slow of an introduction; introductions can certainly be done too quickly. As I've read on this site and in articles, ignore the advice that tell you specific times/days for introduction. The author didn't interview cats for their opinion--take...
Further update. For the past two weeks, I've been leaving out a nugget of frozen commercial raw (0% veg/carb, around .75 oz) before I leave for work. Ritz has not thrown up except the one day I forgot to leave out a nugget. It alas has not made her any less hungry, and I will be taking her back to the vets for further testing on her thyroid. Also I have pet insurance (Petplan) and I was a little concerned that they would not cover the cost of a "specialist" (holistic...
The directions on my container say 1/4 rounded teaspoon at every meal; there is a 1/4 teaspoon included. I only give it once to Ritz; she likes the taste. You can buy really tiny measuring spoons.
First, thank you for caring. They are coming for the food. They are coming because their former owner(s) did not spay/neuter their cat(s). There is an unwritten rule that for every feral/stray/dumped cat you see, there are 10 cats you don't see. Irresponsible (IMHO) owners of pets do not spay/neuter their cats, who then proceed to make more kittens. The mother cat and kittens are sometimes dumped too (I am the luckily recipient of just such a kitten). There is a well...
I am sorry if I gave you the wrong impression. I take off most of the meat and then weigh the bone. The appropriate amount varies with each cat; that is, is the poop too hard, too soft? There is a delightful thread I believe in raw feeding forum that discusses, with pictures, poop and consistency. :lol3:On kindle so can't search for it.
