A kitty in the Kauai Humane Society (A KILL SHELTER) is in need of escort from Lihue, HI to Seattle, WA. There is someone in Seattle ready and willing to adopt her but unable to bring her home. Know of anyone flying from Lihue to Seattle? If so, please contact me as the clock is ticking fast!!!

If you have any other suggestions on how to accomplish this connection, please let me know.

Raw Food Diet > No more stink!!!

We adopted a couple kittens. They came to us with super stinky, stinky poops. Nobody in the house ever had as stinky poop as these kittens. Nasty stinky!!!

They'd been eating dry kibble and canned food at the previous foster situations. Because I eat only raw, my person transitioned the kittens to raw. They took to it right away! Best of all, their poops are no longer stink bombs that clear the house!

(even if their poops no longer stink, I still don't like sharing MY house with these little runts)

Behavior & Training > two male kittens may be moving into my life

My people are considering adopting a couple young male kittens, both littermates. I am an adult female so I can hold my own against these two. But we're wondering if the house is going to become a marking playground for these two boys. or will it just be a playground without the marking since they're littermates? Tell me how life could be have two younger male siblings.

Raw Food Diet > method of feeding raw- help?

We have two different types of raw kitty food around our house. One being a ground type and the other being "whole" items. It came down to a personal preference and need for my kitty sistah and I.

The basic food is a ground mixture, since my teeth aren't super good and I'm a bit lazy (I don't like working for anything, especially food). We can buy ground white turkey as the basis, then there's always ground parts (turkey necks, chicken necks/backs, duck necks/parts, etc) we can supplement that turkey with. And the ratio of veggies gets added as well as the expected supplements of taurine, bioflavonoids, sardines, etc.

My kitty sistah is the brave raw eater. She doesn't need the ground stuff as much since she'll take on anything. I've seen her devour almost an entire guinea fowl! I'll work a little while at the chicken or duck feet but give up after a while. The chicken neck is the only part I'll work through.

So this means that you'll have to see what works for you. There may be a transition period until you get to where your people might want you to be or you might jump in full force. Try it and see!

Very finicky eater here.

My kitty sistah isn't finicky though so she transitioned over to raw easily. I was so bothered by her raw food that I wouldn't even eat when my kibble junk food bowl was placed in the same room at the same time as my sistah's raw food. The drama. It was a slow process for me to transition to raw in which everyone had to be patient (me and my people) with the tiny advances made. It was necessary though since I had some rather severe irritable bowel syndrom symptoms and was a little overweight. Now that I am fully raw, I have no symptoms and am not overweight.

Part of the issue of switching isn't just that the raw smells different but has a very different texture. What's helped me to switch over is a homemade raw diet with the basis being ground rather than whole raw items. My kitty sistah eats the whole chicken necks, backs, feet, organs, etc. I've seen her devour a large section of guinea fowl! I am willing to do only chicken necks though when it comes to animal parts. That's okay. One of my people hates seeing and hearing that crunching and chewing anyway so the ground is a great solution for us all.

Just letting you know that there is a way to make raw work for you (and your people).

My kittysistah, my doggie sistah, and I all get a few healthy homemade treats we loooove. They are super easy to make and we'll do just about anything for them. Other cats and dogs know when my person has these treats in pocket or the smell on the hands, so they'll do anything for them too.

They are homemade dried beef heart and dried beef liver. These items pack such a flavor punch, that my person only gives us small pieces. The beef heart is especially lean stuff. Yum, yum.

Cat Health > kitty asthma

Asthma sucks. I had severe asthma as an allergic response. Lots of time spent in my kitty oxygen tent. The only solution was prednisone to deal with the allergies and an oxygen tent to deal with my severe, life threatening attacks (the inhaler wouldn't be enough). The allopathic care vets were very clear that these were the solutions. What a way to live.

My person sought out alternative care vets who were able to provide far more viable solutions to my chronic condition. For me, my asthma was part of an allergic response. So the alternative care vets eliminated the allergie,s (the root cause) thereby eliminating the asthma response. No more pills, no oxygen tent, no worries.

My person had a cat years and years ago with mild, chronic asthma that never presented itself as dramatically as mine did. Still, that cat saw an alternative care vet who was able to control the asthma with diet and herbs. These options helped the cat's body live well rather than taxing it with steroids, etc. long term. Very well living cat for many, many years after diagnosis.

Just suggestions to consider for a chronic condition like asthma.

Sounds like a visit to the vet is in order. You are having a variety of symptoms that from a "holistic" perspective are very related. Now some vets may treat each symptom separately but hopefully the root cause of them will be determined and treated rather than simply treating the symptoms individually (which could easily return if the root cause is not addressed).
Take care.

Cat Health > spaying soon...pain meds?

After a trauma like surgery, one of the best things to help the body heal is the homeopathic remedy of Arnica Montana 30c. You can buy the pellets at your local pharmacy or health food store. Administering them is simple and they will not interact with any allopathic medications you may be taking.

The Arnica will help your body heal from the trauma of the actual surgery as well as help the body recover from the anesthesia, etc. that was given during surgery. Things like anesthesia are taxing on a body so whatever you can do to help eliminate them from the system is good for general health.

To learn more about Arnica's many, many uses and how to appropriately dose, try googling the info. If you're not finding much on how to dose a cat, then p-mail me for ideas.

Heal well.
