Cod liver oil capsules makes the coat and skin lovely! Buy the pet one though as I think human ones are too strong.

Re: Long Haired Cats in Hot Weather

A friend of mine had a long haired cat in Singapore. She always shaved her cat to keep it cool. I don't remember her having any issues when it grew back.

Re: Wake-up call every morning...tried EVERYTHING!!

I leave mine downstairs in the kitchen and dining room. He has run of the place there at night time. He use to miaow when I closed the door for bedtime, but I just ignored him and went to bed. He settled and doesn't miaow anymore. I never gave him any attention at all. Good luck!

Re: diet help

I need advice on their diet, at the moment they each get half a pouch of wet (over 50% meat) and a handful of dried (sensitive stomach) food in the morning and the same in the evening. Is this too much or about right? My kitten eats more than your cats. He has two pouches and a handful of dried foo...

Your cats may be stressed. The program above has some solutions you could try.

Separation of beds and food bowls seem to work best.

Re: Advice about renaming an unweaned kitten

No, I don't think you are being over protective. I would definitely not rehome if he hasn't been weaned, more concerned about the kittens welfare. And if I was the new owner I wouldn't want to accept a kitten not weaned as it would be such a big worry for me. At the moment he's happy to have mum's m...

Thanks for the link meriad! I will be getting some of this and some of the worlds best.
With clumping litter how often do you wash the tray out?? And do you throw the litter away and start a fresh? It's so tempting to just keep 'topping up'!

Hi Becca, Definitely be honest about what has happened. I wouldn't mention that he will be sleeping forever in case he gets scared of going to sleep. Ask him if he wants to see and say goodbye to the cat. I had to put my 10yr old cat to sleep a month ago. Everybody said goodbye to him before he went...

Re: My cats pee in the corner of the living room- how can I stop them?

I suggest to clean the area thoroughly to get rid of the urine smell. You can buy pet urine cleaners online. Then put a litter tray there for them to use, then slowly move it closer to where you want it. Keep the other litter tray where it is incase they are fussed about using the same one. Good luck!

One bag of Almo Nature does not last for one month as they state. I've had it a week and I have less of half a bag in the tray. My kitten wees and poos a lot.
