Posted before, but never did an intro

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Some have seem me in the Health area. I came first to find out if anyone had problems like I was seeing with my two youngest cats.

First intro to my hubby's and my babies.

Figget- her momma was the jail's wild cat(semi- wild) and a trustee picked her up when she was 4 weeks old not realizing(like trustee had brains?) that momma would not take her back. She would fit in your hand. She was not nursing which makes me believe momma pushed her away. She would not nurse on a bottle but we found she loved to lick on a gerbil bottom. She is now going on 4 yrs old and fat and sassy. She was skinny until she fell out of a tree and broke her skull. $600 later and one fixed up cat. I love my vet by the way, keeps prices down and yelled at people who do NOT take care of their pets.

Satin- King of the house and my hubby's baby. He rules the house and guards the yard from other cats.

Daisy- another baby at age 2 now, my stepdaughter brought home that someone was going to just throw in the ditch(with water) and now she is finally filling out with the good food.

Dakota- the last baby(also 2 years old) my stepdaughter found. She told me he was covered in ants and was just laying in the mud. She brought him home (to mom's house) and cleaned him up. She brought him to our house because mom would not keep him, and he seems,,, not right. at 18 months he had two grandma seizures and several smaller ones. He has never walked like a cat does(one foot in the footprint of the first) and is very clusmy, and very adorable. Very sweet and loving.

Our cats are in and out during the day (they have their own doors, back and front) and in at night with us. Since moving them to Nutro all my cats seem healthier and more alert. Since coming to this forum I have learn many things and I hope to learn more.

Welcome Figgett, Satin, Daisy, Dakota, and Fluffee,

to TheCatSite and bless you and your family for rescuing and loving these precious lives -- I hope the health forum gives you a lot of good information and visits with kindred souls, and you may also want to visit the website of the largest domestic sanctuary, Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah, where there are many "special needs" cats and many loving, knowledgeable people caring for them ( There are links to the special needs cats, and you can register online to become part of the very special Best Friends community, and email them, too.

We rely on Nutro here, too, and agree that it grows very happy, healthy cats. You do need to be aware of the huge recall of tainted cat foods, though, which includes Nutro varieties in pouches. Look on this site for information.

We feed only the dry Nutro, as they seem to like it best. Wet, is 9 lives, one of the few not on the list of recalls. As I only feed them 1/2 of a can between each night I not really worried about changing the wet. Nutro seems to have worked wonders on Daisy as she does not beg for food at the table like before or eat all the wet when someone else decides it is not for them.

As for the special cat place. Yes I will look into that. Dakota is very much like a Down's syndrome child is and I do wonder if that also happens in cats.

And thank you everyone for the nice repies and welcomes

(Love your screen name btw!) Well, some cats may be a little "slower" than others, and I guess there may be mental retardation in cats as there is in humans and members of other species; whichever, I'm just glad Dakota has someone as loving and caring as YOU to be with! One of my little girls, Sahra, has a chronic upper respiratory issue, and my ex says he thinks she could be a little "slow"; all I know is, she's right in there at feeding time, she's deadly with her toys, and she's SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO loving and adorable!

The Nutro canned is no problem and none is being recalled. We still swear by it.
