We love this litterbox! Works percectly, no smell, and no scooping! Our 2 month old new kitten took to it right away. She now weighs a little over 3 lbs. and it now recognizes when shes been in it...
Oh my gosh, I've been looking to replace Robins favorite toy, which was inadvertently thrown out two years ago. Nobody likes to be woken up at night, but everyone loves the sound of crickets, so it...
My favorite litter
My cats seem to enjoy this food. It's a good price for the quality imo . Even the Sensative cat that barfs has kept it down.:D
This is supposed to be less traumatic on nervous cats than clipping their claws and my experience bears that out. Both Chula and Paul hung around afterward to check it out, instead of bolting for...

This is the final update to this thread as Mith appears to have settled in his new life as our cat. The feral, untouchable, afraid tomcat is now our loving, sweet, attection-seeking cat. My sister says he's "butter" as he melts in our hands when we pet him.
Of course there are some issues, he still hasn't gotten over all his feral habits from the years he lived on the street, he may never do, but thats OK. He's my cat and I love him for who he is. Every quirk is yet another thing that makes him so unique and special. And for those quirks who do pose a problem, we'll work on them together, as far as we can both go.
I'm so grateful for having him in my lifepost #34 of 407/19/16 at 8:01am
Oh, what a sweet baby. I am so happy you are sharing your lives together! My Shortstack had the similar story, from completely feral to a gigantic ball of happy love. I am so happy for you both!post #35 of 407/19/16 at 10:57am
So glad you got Mith out of his "shell". Hopefully after you leave again for 6 months he will remain out and get even more into being with humans. Sounds like he just needed so intensive love and attention.
My Mith and you have a great life!post #36 of 4010/23/16 at 11:06amThread StarterI thought the good people who helped me deserved to know how Mith is settling. Here he is, happy and a lot "fluffier"
He turned out to be a dog in cats clothing: He sleeps by the door and waits for someone to come out and pet him, won't roam far from home and loves people. Sometimes he even sleeps with his forepaws in a shoe :-Dpost #37 of 4010/24/16 at 7:01ampost #38 of 401/5/17 at 7:51pmpost #39 of 401/5/17 at 8:18pmQuote:
Best to not allow any jumping/climbing for a full 7 days after a spay. While routine, a spay is a major abdominal surgery and there can be complications from moving around too much or being too active.
We opt to crate all of our females in a large wife dog crate for the full 7 days in order to limit their activity. The week goes by quick and it is always harder on *us* than it is on them.
For neuters, we confine/restrict activity for 3 full days.post #40 of 401/6/17 at 11:43amThread StarterQuote:
It's best if you leave them alone and restrict most activity. While the operation is simple enough for males and they usually recover very quickly (2-3 days), females take longer to recover because spaying is a more invasive surgery.
