Re: Cat - strange toilet behaviour

Why do you think I have an enclosed cat tray? :lol: I had way too many incidents where my Uncles girl thought the wall was the tray. In fact, I had a few instances myself when I didn't get the lid back on fast enough when we first got Sofi. She's calmed down now though. She just like to watch. "Come...

Re: Shredded paper

I just gave Sof a treat in thanks for her not EVER touching our bins. We have 3 around the house and NOT ONCE has she touched them. Also for never trying to get on the kitchen counter even though I know she could if she wanted to.

What a little rascal!

Re: Catching claws /retraction problem?

Sofi has this problem too being an indoors cat. We don't really worry about it as it doesn't really seem to affect her and we don't really have a lot of cardis in this household.

Re: Painting with cat

Started painting the top mouldings. I agree the smell is awful but not as bad as wall paint. Sodi was my ladder companion. She sat on the bottom step and meowed when a spot of paint hit the floor. We had quite the little commentary going. "You're ruining the floor" "I know" "You should've put paper ...

Hey guys, This is probably a stupid question, but I badly need to paint certain walls and frames in the living room and bathroom. I've never had to do any painting in the house before with Sofi present. I've always given her to the next door neighbour or a friend for a day. But sadly the Neighbour i...

Re: Introducing Older Cat Back into Home w/ New Kitten

Hmm quite the conundrum considering all the different houses involved.

Preferably Dublin needs to be in ...

Re: eating more during cold snap?

I've found the best way to get our cat to change food is when we're on vacation.

Managed to get her eating the new vet recommended food in 2 days! :D I'd say you really do need t...

Re: Any advice cats fouling on our beds

Hey Jess, It sounds to me that your cat is very stressed out. Cats are very hygiene creatures and normally these signs of pooping everywhere either signal that they feel they are the dominant person of the household or that they are extremely scared and don't know where to go. I believe she is using...

Re: Dilemma Time

Introductions of younger cats can always be traumatic. Females, I've found, tend to be more receptive but also calm down quicker and tend to either reject or mother the new cats (the younger, the better or more rejective). Males can get quite vicious if they don't like the new cat(s) and can take mo...

If you really want to keep him I'd say first thing is to (as the others have said) get him looked at by a vet. But before you do that you need a carrier to take him.
