Litter Box Training
Some advice, techniques, ways.. on how to train my kitty to poop in a litter box..
We have an 18 year old tabby. Lately she started randomly crying out. We call to her, and she settles. We thought she might have lost her vision, but she can track our movements and still likes to play. She has a basket in the corner of our bedroom and she will face the wall and cry out, and is fine when we respond to her. We wonder if she's getting disoriented somehow. Do cats get dementia?
Cat has pica! Help!!!
My little orange tabby has had 4 surgeries in a 6 month period. She has a need to eat soft plastic. First time she ate a nipple from a baby bottle. Second time was a chunk of corn on the cob. Third time was part of a Wii remote cover. Fourth time was part of a silicone oven mitt. She's currently on Prozac for her pica. However we had a scare a few weeks back and she ate, but three up a soft mouse you. And now I'm not sure what she ate, but she's not eating. She's acting how she was when she had intestinal blocks. She can't physically have any more surgeries. She's been on medication for over 3 months. But she seems to still have this problem. Had anyone been through this? I need someone to talk to and get advice from. I'm at such a loss and I don't know what to do. Has anyone been in this situation?
Very Unexpected Death
My kitty was 7 years old. He was not showing any signs of being unhealthy. Everything was completely normal the night before. My boyfriend and I came home from work Monday, and found our cat laying on a box, he was cold and stiff. He had probably been there all day, there was no food missing from his bowl, and nothing in the litter box. I just have no clue what could have happened. When we found him, I noticed his eyes were partly open and looked black instead of his beautiful green, and they looked bloodshot around the black. His mouth was partly open and I could see a lot of white in there with some blood, it looked more like vomit than foam though. There was also a spot on his nose that looked like something might have leaked out of it either while he was dying or right after he died. His tail was completely up and the fur on it was poofed out. Does anybody have any idea of what might have happened?
My savannah kitten is nervous and skittish. Ive have him almost 3 weeks, and each time I think we are making progress its like we take a step back. Any advice on what I can do to gain his trust
HELP! My 14 week Siberian kitten is not eating like before!!
My Siberian kitten was eating up to a can a day of nature's instinct
chicken flavor plus some dry kibble of Orijen. He would run to where I
would put his food and eat very happily. But then 2.5 day ago when I got
home from work I noticed the some of the wet food I left in the morning
was dried up because it wasn't eaten completely and there was still
some dry kibble. The quarter of wet food is always eaten by the time I
leave for work., but not this time. So when I got home I cleaned and
washed with soap his bowl like I always do before feeding, and when it
was time to feed he chased after me like always, but when I put his food
down he would smelled it and backed away meowing. I never experienced
this. So I thought maybe after 3.5 weeks of the same food he wants
change. So I gave him lamb..he ate a tiny bit then stopped... I then
gave him rabbit....nothing... then I gave him salmon. he ate that but
reluctantly. I decided to try raw food from nature's instinct... he
didn't like that either. so I tried hand feeding the chicken flavor
again, and he finally ate that way... I put the food on the hardwood
floor..he ate that way but still not that much. i don't know what to
do!!! I will go the vet this week to make sure there is nothing
physical. He is not a huge eater, but then he weighs only 3 lbs. He is a
very tiny kitten, but doc said he was not underweight. I'm trying to
get extra weight on him since I got him, and now this is happening.

Pet therapy with cats
I have been a cat owner for many years. I am thouroughly convinced of the healing power of pets in general.Cats can provide great help and comfort to suffering people, their healing potential is only starting to be understood and appreciated.My question is: how can we protect the wellbeing of our cats, of all cats and, at the same time, encourage people with health problems/disabilities to adopt a cat?
Purebred cats vs adopted cats
I have always owned wild cats. I either found them in a bush or they would adopt me by showing up on my front door step. My cat recently passed, and I don't want to wait very long before getting a new cat. I am thinking of purchasing purebred cat from a breeder that I found in the newspaper. She has these beautiful Scottish Fold cats, and I was thinking about getting one. Has anyone bought a purebred cat before? Were they just as loveable as the cats you adopt?
