Kitten Corner > How to tame a feral kitten

Not too long ago we decided to get a new addition to our family, and we went through the whole adoption process for Mia. The foster mom said she was a great cat and that she’d be a little scared at first, but then she would turn around once she got used to her environment. Well its almost two months later and she’s still scared. You can’t even go up to her and approach her. The only way you can touch her is if she’s on one of her “safe spots” (the bed, couch, and cat tree). We've been giving her treats, playing with her a lot, talking to her, handling her as much as we can. That seems to be helping out a lot, but I’m just scared I’ll never be able to approach her in the future. Anyone have any tips on how to help her get friendlier?

Kitten Corner > My kitty has bad gas

Is her stool on the softer side? My kitten was also having gas, so we took her to the vet and she looked at her stool and noticed that it was on the softer side. She prescribed her Metronidazole Suspension and that really cleared things up.

I've been noticing for a while that my cats joints have been cracking. He's a young cat, just turned 1 in July so that worries me. He has to have a check up with his vet soon so I have to ask her about it when he goes.

Has anyone else had this problem and know whats causing it?

Behavior & Training > Christmas Trees...

My cat is a crazy one too. We put the tree up a little after Thanksgiving and so far he's doing an okay job at leaving it alone, I'm surprised. He did ended up breaking two glass ornaments, so we had to take everything glass off and leave the branches closest to the floor bare. He only does this at night since were sleeping and no ones up to play with him so he gets bored.
When you're finding a place for your tree make sure its not next to anything he can jump up onto to. We set ours next to the fireplace and Riley jumps up on it and bats the ornaments, so that side of the tree is bare haha.

My grandmother had a cat who was a silent meower, I thought it was the cutest thing.

Not Riley though, he meows very loudly when he has something to say.

Behavior & Training > Urinating outside the litter box

I have found that getting my cat neutered was the miracle fix for this problem. Mine would stand on the desk and pee on the wall, in the sinks, the bathtub, anywhere he would desire he would pee. When we got him fixed, the problem went away immediately and he's been using the litter box ever since.

Cats and a Clean Home > Do you bathe your kitty?

Riley would go nuts if I tried to bathe him. The only time I ever debated bathing him was when he was sick and stepped in his poop and he left brown tracks all over the house, talk about a mess. Luckily it was only on his paws and not all over his body so I ended up just holding him down and cleaning his paws. A bath is definitely not a one man job, that's for sure.

Food & Nutrition > Kitty Water Fountains

I highly advise that you get one, my cat loves it. He drinks water more frequently now then when it was just in a bowl. I'm not sure how often my parents clean the fountain but I suggest every two weeks.I'm sure the slime and gook builds up over time. As far as the water goes we use the water that comes out of the reverse osmosis filter which is what we drink.

Try one of those fountains from Petco or Petsmart. There a bit more expensive but my kitty loves it. Its a bit heavy so I don't think your kitty will be able to knock it over. And on the plus side it filters the water so its clean and fresh!
