Re: “Health and Behaviour” Section of the Forum

There are two types of behaviour - behaviour linked with health, and behaviour only (that has no link to health). A question on whether a cat that nibbles your hand might start biting, is, to most people, a behaviour only question, and not a General Cat Chatting question. Look at the main page, it s...

Re: Going under kitchen units

Hey Ahmed, you could block the gap off, perhaps with cardboard, tightly packed - he will probably have a good old rummage and scrabble at it at first, just to see if he can get the better of it but it'll keep him occupied and out of mischief - until he finds something else to occupy his mind lol. I...

Re: Feeding cat boiled chicken

@Sarah, ohhhh, raw chicken, I didn't try that, maybe I'll offer him a bit. He has never been out but there is no harm in trying! @Rest, yes, maybe the PAH recipe was full of junk, if I had your culinary skills, I'd definitely try and come up with my own gravy recipes and then take them on Dragons De...

Going under kitchen units

Hello, This one is driving me crazy, so maybe someone can help. There is a small gap under one of the units in the kitchen. Sometimes, TC has an interest in that gap. He will go and sit in front of it looking at it for ages, and then sometimes he goes inside and goes all the way around the base unit...

Re: My cat's soul... Where is it now? :(

If you believe humans have a soul and there is an afterlife, then you should believe your cat does too.

If you don't believe in anything spiritual, then at least your cat still lives on in your heart, and you should be happy you gave it a good life.

Re: My cat's soul... Where is it now? :(

As for me, I suppose you could say I am 'religious' though it is not a term I would use. I do have faith (sorely tested at times!)

Re: Feeding cat boiled chicken

Well my landlady is on holiday and I am looking after him. He doesn't want to eat his dry food, and he finishes his tin of wet food in a few hours and then sits there and meows away. I read here before that someone feeds their cat boiled chicken, so I thought I will get him some. I hope he likes it!

Re: Feeding cat boiled chicken

Great, thanks, no, I won't be eating any, so I'll put some in the freezer as he's a small cat and I only want it to supplement this with his normal food.

Great, I'll cut them up and do it as you say, grilling sounds fun but I have never used the grill and the boiling way seems so much easier :D

Can someone please now give further advice, for fillets this size, do I shove them all together in the pan, how much water, how much time, do I need to cut them up further?

Thanks.

Feeding cat boiled chicken

I have seen some posters mention before they give their cat boiled chicken. What is the recipe? Is there some special part of a chicken you give? Do you serve it hot old cold?

Thanks.

Re: Is it wrong to keep a cat indoors?

I live with a cat who is an indoor cat only. He has never been outside, except for one trip to the vet and one night at someone else's home. When I come into the flat, he sometimes comes to the door and peeks outside into the communal corridor. He is a very nervous cat by nature, so he just stands t...
