Re: Felix Wet Food Giving My Cat the Squitter-Squirts - Can Anyone Think Why?

Thanks so much to everyone who's so far aired their thoughts. Much appreciated. Interesting to hear the explanation of why Americans have such a low opinion of Purina, Ruth. What you say definitely makes sense, bearing in mind how unregulated the US still is in so many ways. Getting old Mouse vet-ch...

Felix Wet Food Giving My Cat the Squitter-Squirts - Can Anyone Think Why?

Hi. I live in the UK and my cat Mouse has been a wet food cat for nine years now. Although he's tried all kinds of wet food over the years, he's always got on best with Felix (though obviously I've had to vary the flavours a lot, to keep him interested). Now, I realise that a lot of snooty cat owner...

Re: Mental Stimulation for an Injured Cat Confined to a Crate?

Crewella, thanks for the practical advice. I'm sincerely hoping that the first week is/was indeed the worst - but dear god, the yowling was dreadful at breakfast time today (day 8) and very nearly sent me off my chump. Hopefully old Mouse'll acclimatise any moment now. Did your Basil have to have hi...

Re: Mental Stimulation for an Injured Cat Confined to a Crate?

Oh jeez Vivian, poor Mayday. I was dreading being told that my cat's leg had been completely smashed - I just don't know what I'd have done, not least because a cat with a missing front leg would be unable to defend itself against attack by the local vicious cat. Yet at the same time I'd feel dreadf...

Re: Mental Stimulation for an Injured Cat Confined to a Crate?

Damn those roads and their new-fangled motor conveyances. Is there anywhere in Britain where it's safe for a cat to live? Good health and a long life to your Mouse, who I'm pleased to see has some fairly serious whiskers too. Mind you, she'll put her back out by lolling around like that if she's not...

. Mouse on a good day. Serious whiskers. Catchat picture.jpg Mouse on a not-so-good day. Blue-and-white bandaged leg held out pathetically. 22-02-17_235829.jpg Janey, many thanks for your advice re. posting photos. I would never have spotted that 'Attachments' tab. Thanks also for the get-well wishe...

Re: Mental Stimulation for an Injured Cat Confined to a Crate?

Lilith and alanc, many thanks for your responses and please accept my apologies for being so slow to reply. I seem to have very little time at my disposal right now (I think I'd better get up an hour earlier in the morning just to keep on top of the cat situation) - and old Mouse regularly embarks o...

Mental Stimulation for an Injured Cat Confined to a Crate?

Hi. My beautiful, thoughtful, gentle, polite, intelligent and much-loved tuxedo cat Mouse went out last Friday night and didn't reappear the next day. It was totally out of character, so I was deeply worried and went out searching, but couldn't find him. By the time I went to bed on Saturday night, ...
