Re: New kitten - poop help

Hi and welcome, yes I’d say the treats are the cause if all was fine before. Usually it’s best to stick to what they’ve been having and gradually introduce other foods if you like. Saying that it’s tempting to treat your new little cat but you will find what agrees with what doesn’t over time. My ca...

Re: cat toilet training outside

Most of the cats I’ve had have preferred to use a tray indoors too, even coming in after being out a few hours just to go to the loo. However, my current cat prefers to go outside, but she’s in most days from lunchtime onwards, and will use a tray if she needs to go then. I would always have a tray ...

Have you tried Gourmet pates to tempt him to eat, mine love those, always help encourage them to eat. I wouldn’t want to make his tummy worse, but there’s nothing worse than not having an appetite as we know ourselves. Give him a snuggle from me xx

Re: Fat cat needs to lose weight

It’s good that you’re doing this for him. If you cut down his food say by even 1/4 to 1/2 a pouch a day over a week say, i.e. gradually - slowly does it, and persevere, he’ll not even notice it and feel so much better. Best of luck!

Re: Fat cat needs to lose weight

A couple of thoughts - I would split the food up, as you say you already are, so he’s getting little and often. Another thing is to encourage him to exercise more, so e.g. get one of those sticks with something attached, so you can get him running round. My cat loves ribbon or string, and will follo...
