Re: First time cat owner!

When Dora first came home I put a bed down for her on the landing where she could see me during the night. However..... She was having none of it and managed to climb onto my bed. For about 6 weeks we had the pawing at the face, waking me up at 2am for play, waking me up at 4am for breakfast so on a...

Hi Lyndy. Welcome!

I hope Snowy turns up soon & thank you so much for sending the pic of Felix across to your sister. I know Jackie will be eternally grateful & wouldn't it just be the strangest twist of fate if this thread bought the little fella back home! X

Re: First time cat owner!

Hi Louise. Is it Blarney? That's a really unusual name. He is a gorgeous fella. Dora decided to own me when she was just 12 weeks old in 2008. I too am a first time cat owner. I joined the site in 2011 and have gained invaluable insights into being owned by a cat. Dora is my world and I love her mor...

Re: Just moved house - my plan & any advice please

I tend to agree about letting them set the pace. When I moved with Dora I let her into just the lounge which she sniffed round and then asked to be let into the entrance hall so I let her through. It took her about 45 minutes to go round every room, then as everything furniture wise and human wise w...

Re: Axa Pet insurance - changing to NCI

I worked in insurance for a couple of years and its not a company I ever came across. It's proving more and more difficult to get pet insurance as clearly most insurers are pulling out of the market. I've just renewed Dora's policy which has increased by 98% from last years price but given that my c...

Re: Cat with sore paw not come home since last night

Is it worth plugging in a Feliway defuser if you have one and spraying the carrier with Feliway spray? Alternatively I know some people on here have success using normal human rescue remedy on their cats to calm them down. I think the idea is that you put a couple of drops on your fingers, then rub ...

Re: Automatic Feeder

Hi Carol. We have a duel timer 'cat mate' one. We've had it for about 4 years. Use it probably about once every 3 months. Still using the original battery. I don't like relying on a machine to play mummy but very occasionally it can't be helped and I now completely trust this 'madjic feedies ma shine'

I don't think that's stupid at all. I worry all the time about Dora. As you know she's an indoor girl.
