Re: Little Batcat is missing since Saturday :-(

Oh this is so sad. I hope he turns up. I sometimes worried about my Theo being an indoor cat but whenever I read these posts it really puts it in perspective for me. I know id never let him out now. I decided for definite when I read the horrifying post about that poor cat with the tin can stuck on ...

Re: Sainsbury's Premium(ish) food 1/2 price

Yes I tried putting Iams in with his Go cat and another more expensive one (can't remember the name) but he wouldn't touch it. He just sniffed it and walked away. He does love his gourmet pate so I wonder should I give him that twice a day instead of the Go cat. Its funny because my daughters cat wi...

Re: Sainsbury's Premium(ish) food 1/2 price

Markb my cat will only eat Go cat. Ive tried for over a year to get him to eat something different but he will actually go without food rather than eat anything else. He does have a tin of gourmet gold every night too but even with that he will only eat the turkey pate. Is there something bad with G...

Re: Can cats read your thoughts? Yes.

Theo is due for his yearly check up, booster injection and flea treatment and claw trim at 10 am this morning at the vets and hes sitting in the back bedroom upstairs meowing. When I go in hes just staring at me and wont let me stroke him. Very strange for theo. he loves his cuddles. So im sure he s...

Re: How can I prevent my cat from going to the toilet inside

Totally agree with meriad. It sounds like he didn't want a cat in the first place if he wont do anything to help Jasmine. What a shame. Im no expert but to me the obvious thing is a litter tray for now and plenty of love and affection. And if the man of the house cant live like that then id keep the...

Re: how often for flea treatment

Meriad when Theo was taken to the rescue he was full of fleas and scabs so they were treating him with Advocate monthly. He was in there for a year. When we adopted him they told us to carry on with the advocate monthly even though we said he wouldn't be going out and all his skin was clear. When I ...

Hi everyone. Im not sure if ive asked this when I first got Theo but how often do I need to do his flea treatment.

I honestly didn't know how clever cats are till I got Theo. He actualy amazes me how he knows words. Last week we got him a huge climbing frame (6ft tall) and at first he was scared of it. (nothing new there with Theo). Well he knows the word *treats* and comes running if I say it. So I put the trea...

Well I got some and grew it (it took 4 days) and Theo just sniffed it and walked away. Is there anything I could do to encourage him to eat it because ive read that indoor cats really need to eat grass to prevent hair balls forming in there stomach. I got the feeling he didn't like it touching his n...

Re: How do you feel about declawing?

Its disgusting. And please do not compare mutilating a cat to having an indoor cat. Absolutely no comparison. And one more point I must add, although not ideal, some animals live long and very happy lives in shelters. They are well looked after, well fed, warm and loved by the staff. Yes in an ideal...

Re: cat nipping

My theo does this all the time but its a very affectionate little nibble, not a bite. He kind of touches my hand or arm with his teeth very gently. he does it when we get up in the morning and when we come in from work. He gets all exited and rolls over etc and head butts us. I love it. :D
