My Cat Won’t Eat That

Cats like certain brands and flavors of foods just like we do. Your cat may be allergic to something in the cat food. Depending on where your cat food is manufactured it might have a contaminant in it that may make your cat very ill or even kill your cat if he kept eating it. Observe your cats behavior when you present him with a new brand or flavor of cat food. If he gets sick eating it throw it away and never try to make your cat eat it.

If your cat is purging up his cat food it is probably the new cat food that is at fault. Sometimes if your cat has bad teeth or gulps his food down he will purge his meal. I try to stick to well known brands of cat foods for all of my feline friends.

Some of my cats like certain kinds of cat snacks better than others. Some of my cats are poultry lovers and others are fish lovers. Certain shapes of cat food or snacks are easier for your cat to swallow than other shapes. I prefer the smaller cat snacks for my cats as they can swallow them up easily with no difficulty.

My cats love canned tuna in water as well as their canned cat food. I give my cats dry cat food that is made in the USA. I also give my cats dental treats to help them keep their pearly whites. My cats like to eat some dried catnip now and then. Make sure the catnip has not been sprayed with chemicals as this could be toxic to your cat.

 

If your cats keeps on purging and you have not given him anything different to eat take him to your VET ASAP as he could have a very serious illness that could KILL him.

Remember we cannot eat certain foods ourselves so why would our feline friends  be any different. Give your cat what he likes and wants to eat in moderation as you do not want an obese feline friend.

My Cats Favorite Kitty Litters

All of my cats prefer a clumping cat litter that does not get stuck to their paws. Clumping cat litter tends to smell better longer than a non – clumping cat litter. Cat are very fastidious and they love clean and fresh smelling litter box.

My cats like Tidy Cats Kitty litter. The Tidy Cats litter smells good for a very long time. Tidy Cats comes in a lightweight  cat litter also that is much easier to carry and transport. My cats next door also like the Tidy cats disposable litter box. I have used Tidy Cats litter for many years with no issues whatsoever.

My cats like Worlds Best Cat litter which has a nice corn smell to it. They also like Arm & Hammer cat litter and it is very easy to remove from the litter box. My cats also like Mills Fleet Farm lightweight kitty litter. Wheat Scoop cat litter is an Eco friendly cat litter which smells like fresh harvested corn. They like Fresh Step cat litter also.

My Pet Safe litter box uses a crystal cat litter which my house cats like. The litter last for about 20 days with my three house cats. I use Tidy cats lightweight clumping litter in my Litter – Robot litter box. I use a variety of kitty litters in my Catit litter boxes.

I used some of the Mills Fleet Farm kitty litter today and all of my cats made a deposit to that litter box. I also put Worlds Best Cat litter in my cat litter box in my house and my cats used that litter box in short order. I always use Tidy Cats lightweight kitty litter in the Litter – Robot. My house cats always use the Pet Safe litter box also with the crystal kitty litter.

My cats like their favorite kitty litters and never have any litter box issues when I use their favorite cat litters.

Cat Health Problems

I adopted a cat with bad teeth. I had several of her teeth pulled over the years. She would rub and paw away at her face. I looked in her mouth and discovered she had bad teeth. The vet pulled her bad teeth out and it took her about two days to be able eat moist cat food. She was able to eat the hard cat food in about five days.

When your cat gets fleas it will scratch away at its face, body, ears, etc. I prefer the the flea treatments that you place on the nape of your cats neck. A cat can get fleas from old kitty litter that it not changed often enough or a  floor or carpet that is not kept clean. Make sure your cats bedding and litter boxes get cleaned thoroughly. Do not let your cats in and out of the house in the late spring or in the fall before a killing frost or they may bring the unwanted fleas into your home.

Make sure your cat gets distemper shots and rabies shots and more when needed. Make sure you have your cat wormed at your cats checkup also. I have a cat that was born with upper respiratory problems. I found a sinus medicine for him that seems to help. Cats can get urinary problems. If your male cat is howling in pain at the litter box get him to the vet ASAP as he will die from septic shock or kidney failure. If your cat gets worms you may see them in the litter box and your cat will be lethargic and weak and may have diarrhea also. If your cat has diarrhea try some canned cat food with pumpkin or rice. If your cat does not get over the diarrhea in two days take him to your vet ASAP as diarrhea can be very serious.

If your cat gets cut try to stop the bleeding and call your vet ASAP. When a cat gets ear mites I put some ear mite treatment in its ears and it stops shaking and scratching at its ears. If you suspect your cat has eaten or ingested something that may be poison call your vet immediately otherwise your cat could die very quickly. When a cats weight goes down quickly there is some kind of underlying cause and they should be taken to the vet. The older your cat gets he will need more rest and quiet time. I hope you and cat live 9 lives.

Cats and Storms

My cats can get very upset when a storm is coming. My cats will run and hide in the basement. If my cats are in bed with me at night they will meow nervously. My cats tend to lay as close as they possibly can next to me in bed if it is thundering. I had one cat look up at the heavens when it was thundering very loudly and a tornado warning was issued. All of a sudden she ran to the basement and I decided to follow suit. The winds were horrific and I lost large branches out of the trees and the roof on one of my buildings. The cats and I were fine.

I have trained my cats to run down to the basement when I call them. Cat Treats are good way to train your cat. You do not have time to locate all your cats when a tornado is rapidly approaching your home. All I have to do is call my cats with a sense of urgency in my voice and they join me safely in the basement of my home.

Animals have a keen sense of the weather and one should always take ques from them in regards to the weather situation. My friend had a cat that ran under her couch when they issued a tornado warning on the radio. When they sounded the all clear she came out from under the couch one minute later.

My cats tend to move around a lot in the basement when the winds are horrific. If my cats are looking out of a window they keep watching the tree branches move back and forth. Their tails are swinging rapidly back and forth as they are stating their distaste for the weather by their wild tail movement. Listen to you cats keen sense of weather changes. Hope you and cats survive the storms in nature.

How To Catch A Cat That Does Not Wish To Be Caught

I had an outdoor cat that needed her rabies and distemper shots. She seemed to know that I wanted to bring her to the vet and she was dead set against it. I put canned cat food in a live animal trap and she would not go near it. I have caught a lot of cats with canned tuna in water but not her. I tried all different kinds of cat treats and food to no avail. My friend had a left over piece of Walleye fish that I placed in the live animal trap and that did the trick.  The Walleye fish was something she had never eaten before and her curiosity got the best of her. She had no trouble at the vet and my mission was finally accomplished. Try something new and different for your cat to eat if you are having trouble catching them.

A fish net works good while your cat is eating. I place the net over the cat  while they are busy eating and grab them my the nape of their neck and then I transfer them to their pet carrier. You can place the net on one side of the building they are resting in and the cage on the other end. Your cat will either end up in the net or in the cage.

I had one cat that I had tried to catch and I finally just placed the cage where she was resting and she just walked right in. I was shocked that she just walked right in her pet carrier. Never pull a cat out of a cage they do not like that kind of behavior and they will bite you. Let your cat walk out of his cage on his own or gradually lift the cage up so he can walk out on his own. I put the cage on end when I place my cats in the cage. I put the back end of my cat in first which works a lot easier then placing their head in the cage first.

I hope this information helps you catch your feline friends safely and humanly. I hope your vet visit is a good experience for you and your cat.

Revolution for Cats that treats fleas and more from Chewy.Com

I was provided Revolution for cats to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100 % honest and my own.

Maggie is an indoor and outdoor cat. I use Revolution on her to protect her from fleas, heartworm disease, hookworms, roundworms and ear mites.  She did get ear mites from being outdoors one time and Revolution killed the ear mites and she stopped scratching and shaking her head in only 15 to 30 minutes after I applied it according to instructions. Maggie loves her Revolution from Chewy.Com.

I love the fact that Chewy.Com now has a pet pharmacy and you can have your pets medicines and supplies delivered right to your door. You will need approval from your vet and you will need to set up a pet portal that is very easy to do on your acct. with Chewy.Com.

I have also used Revolution on my indoor and outdoor cat Cali. I did not want her to bring fleas into my house and go through everything it takes to get rid of a flea infestation in your home. You have to wash everything in hot water and be out of the house when the pest man has to spray or put  a smoke bomb in your home to kill all of the fleas.  You will need the pest man twice to kill off any flea eggs that hatched after the first treatment. All of your pets will have to be treated or they will be in great misery scratching and biting away at the fleas that could have been prevented altogether if you would have just used Revolution to begin with. You will be in misery yourself as fleas bit your legs and you will be scratching and itching  just like your feline friends. I know about flea infestations because I once had a tenant that left my house flea infested and what a nightmare that was.

A flea and pest free home is a happy home for you and your feline family. Treat your cats to an excellent spring and summer with no scratching or itching with Revolution from Chewy.Com.

What Not To Give Your Cat For Christmas

Do not let your cat eat any poinsettia leaves or any part of the plant. Your cat will most likely not be able to meow for about one week. Mistletoe will kill a cat if they ingest it. Chocolate will also kill your cat if they eat any of it. Do not feed your cats any bones as they could get lodged in their throat or cut their esophagus. Do not feed a lot of table scraps to your cat as he could throw up or get a horrible case of diarrhea. I only give my cats a couple of little pieces of turkey at Christmas.

I do not put up a Christmas tree since I have house cats. Cats can drink the water under the tree and some water has been treated with chemicals which keeps your tree looking better longer but will kill your house cat if they happen to drink that water. Tinsel will get lodged in your cats stomach or digestive system if they play with and then eat it. Cats can chew on Christmas lights, bulbs and more which could harm or kill them.

Give toys to your cats that do not have eyes or anything that they could pull off and eat as they could choke to death. Give your cat toys made for cats to be on the safe side. Never let you cats play with plastic bags as they could smoother to death quickly. Throw wrapping paper in the garbage quickly along with ribbons and strings. Strings are hard to remove from your cats mouth and they might be ingested as to where your cat would need surgery to remove the ingested string.

As you clean your home for Christmas gatherings remember to put away your cleaning supplies ASAP so your cat will not get poisoned by you because you got into too much of a hurry trying to get ready for Christmas. Hope you and your cats have a very Merry and safe Christmas this year and forever more.

Some Cat Hazards

Cats can get themselves into all kinds of predicaments. They say curiosity killed the cat and that can be a true statement when it comes to our feline friends. Cats are very adventurous and will try to attempt the impossible sometimes. Cats do not always land on their feet as the old saying goes.

Cats love to eat house plants  or flowers that may kill them or make them very sick. I do not keep any plants or flowers in my house. If someone gives me flowers I put them in a room that my cats cannot get assess to. Cats can vomit, go into convulsions or die by eating leaves, flowers or drinking the water with chemicals to preserve the flowers.

Keep antifreeze, oil, gas and farm chemicals in closed containers so your cat will not suffer from a painful death by ingesting these substances into their body. Put mouse and rat poison in an enclosed trap so your farm cats cannot eat it and bleed to death. Close paint containers and cleaning supplies. Never leave your medicine sitting out as kitty could knock the bottle over and ingest your pills and die. keep all of your household cleaners closed and in an area your cat will not be able to assess.

Make sure to check that you have not locked your cat in a building where he could starve to death. Check under your car tires or the motor of your car if you do not happen to notice your cat. Many cats have gotten run over by accident or succumbed by the car motor or belts or blade in your car.

Do not leave your house with just the screen in your window. Cats have clawed up the screens or pushed against them so hard the screen gave away and  their cat fell to its death out of a high story building. A house cat does not stand much of a change if it gets outdoors as it does not know how to fend for itself and all the dangers that lurk outdoors.

I hope you and cat stay safe and sound for many years to come and create many purrfect memories throughout your years together.
