Re: Eating Mice

Thanks for the replies everyone. He gets his worming stuff from the vets every 3 months, so I hope that's enough. He also has a collar with a bell, it's cut down the bird kills, but not the mice. If I tried to keep him in later in the mornings much past dawn he would drive me mad. I would have to go...

Re: Eating Mice

He does come in a night around 7pm, but he goes nuts to go out again just before dawn.

Re: Eating Mice

Thanks everyone for the great replies. I'm feeding him on 2 pouches a day of Felix double delicious with some Whiskas dry, so I think that's complete plus as I said he gets the odd treat from time to time such a bit of tuna and small amounts of cheese. Yesterday he had his diner, demolished 90% of i...

Eating Mice

My cat is catching up to 3 mice a day, he brings most in to the garden, some make it as far as the house. He has just started eating the smaller ones. Is he just being a cat or am I not feeding him enough. His weight is 5 Kg which is constant, he has 2 100g pouches a day plus 50g of dry and the odd ...

Pet Health Clubs

Not to be confused by pet insurance. - All the local vets are now charging around £163 a year for the annual vaccination, 4 lots of flee and worm drops and a 6 month check up. Is there a better option? Maybe buying the flee and worm stuff on-line which seems a lot cheaper and just having the vet do ...

Normal or Coincident

Among the various toys my cat has is a ping pong ball, we pass it back and forth together from time to time. The other day I noticed it wasn't where it normally is so I started looking for it. I couldn't find it anywhere. I said to the cat "Find the ball" after a couple of second he got up from wher...

Re: good cat food

Like most, I buy cat food from the supermarket with the weekly shop. I've been feeding mine with Felix double delicious, he's fine with that except he won't touch the beef ones. In an attempt to save passing these on, this week I've given him Whiskas poultry range. He will not eat any of them. I'll ...

Re: Collar

Having tried other collars with no success, either the catch comes undone when he scratches or they just seem to irritate him I took Marla up on her kind offer of a collar from Kittycollars. He's been wearing it for nearly 2 weeks now and it's never unintentionally come undone, it doesn't seem to ir...

Re: Collar

Thanks for the quick reply, everything you suggest I've done. I even went to a pet shop yesterday and tried various safety releases they all seemed about the same. I've tried various degrees of tightness of the collar, but he still gets out of it. I don't think he likes a collar, maybe I'll just hav...

Collar

I want to put a collar on my cat with a name tag. I brought a safety release buckle collar, but he's worked out if he gets his back leg under it he can break the release, is it OK to put him in a non safety release collar?

GPS or RF Tracking

My cat went missing yesterday, normally he's only out for 2 to 3 hours at a time, but yesterday he was gone for 16 hours he got home at 4am covered in dirty engine oil. Anyway it got me thinking what about a tracker. I've spent hours on the net this morning trying to sort one out, just when I though...

Re: Cat litter smells

When I originally posted I had only had the cat for a few days, he was a rescue cat and being new to being owned by a cat I didn't know what to expect. Now I have been feeding him with mainly Felix pouches and a small amount of dry he's not too bad in the smelly department. So I think it was just hi...

Re: Cat Flap

Many thanks both. I had a look in 'Pets At Home' today and saw the Cat Mate flap, it looks and feels so much better than the Staywell, They only had the chip version so I'll need to buy the 4 way on line. I'm going to fit it to an outside wall (2 rows of brick plus a caverty about 190mm) Do you know...

Cat Flap

Can anyone recommend a cat flap to fit in a wall that won't self destruct in days. It just needs to be a simple manual 4 way. I've read some of the reviews on certain makes and they seem to be made of paper, total rubbish. Thanks.

Confused about a cat

I've had this cat nearly 2 weeks, got him from the RSPCA rescue place. He's about 9 months (ish) old. Now I may be expecting too much to soon or it maybe the cat. He is quite happy sleeping on my bed at night, sits / sleeps on the other end of the settee with me during the day. But when I go to fuss...

Re: How much food

I can't remember which dry I brought, I don't have the packet as I've put the contents into a plastic food box. I will keep what you say in mind when I come to buy some more. I'll get a couple of tins tomorrow and see how it/he goes.

Re: How much food

Thanks Alan and Ruth, all good advice, I'll give him an extra pouch tomorrow (he'll think its Christmas) and move him slowly over to the tins, it seems to be better value. Half a 400g tin of Whiskas and 25g to 30g of dry a day. (25g is about an egg cup). Plus the odd treat. BTW I don't think he is f...

Thanks Sniper1, As I said he is only indoors at the moment and for the next few weeks and he is getting Felix pouches and some cheap dry food, I'm not sure if that counts as quality food or not.

Sorry another question. How much should I give him? He always seems to be hungry. I've looked on the internet and just get conflicting answers. He's about 1 year old, weighs around 10Lbs, at the moment stays indoors (Only got him a few days ago). At the moment he gets in the morning an egg cup full ...

Re: Cat litter smells

Thanks Ruth. I got to it within minutes, but it was still bad and it lingered in the room for well over an hour. I'll pick some Hartz Nodor Litter Spray up tomorrow when I go shopping, see if that helps. Also, I'm thinking of trying Cats Best Oko Plus litter. Any other suggestions most welcome.

Hi all, New here and new to cats. I expect this has been covered many times before, but I have a 1 year old and feed him pouch Felix and dry food, he loves it all. For the litter I use Catsan, but will be trying the cheap supermarket £1.55 for 10L stuff. When he does a poop it stinks, and I mean sti...
