Cats and a Clean Home > Lets talk about "CAT Rooms"

Is it Caturday- yet?

Right now, we have several cat trees sprinkled throughout the house, as well as high platforms we built and put over the windows. However, we're getting ready to move and the new house is HUGE. We're dedicating one room solely to the kitties. There are already built in bookshelves in the room for climbing, as well as shelves high up on the walls (you know, for knick knacks). We're putting two of their cat trees in there so they can jump from the trees to the shelves, and there is an awesome oak tree out the window with squirrels and birds for them to watch. We're putting a curtain on the lower shelves of the built-ins and putting the litter boxes in there. Basically kitty Shangri-la.

Cat Health > Capsule is too large! Help?

We had this problem recently with some insanely large thing. I was speaking with a cat lady and she had a fabulous idea. Open the capsule and mix it with something nummy and spreadable (she used EZ cheese, but you can try whatever won't bother her allergies), then put the mix on her paw and voila! She'll lick it off if it kills her, mol.

You're doing a lot, that's great. When you brush, I'd brush with Petzlife gel or Tropiclean instead of regular toothpaste. That's what we use and never needed a dental!

Behavior & Training > O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree!

Good deal. Hobie has always been good with the tree and typically just sleeps on the skirt underneath it. Zelda on the other hand...well we knew she'd be an issue. Her first Christmas we just put the tree up and didn't decorate it, then last year we moved the tree to right next to the couch in the living room so we'd be able to see it a good portion of the time. We didn't put any dangly ornaments down low to tempt them, and we kept a Nerf gun on standby in case someone needed a climbing deterrent. It worked out well.

Hello all! wave

Hobie and Zelda have been on wet for a few months now, it was a tough transition and I've only found one food they could eat, but we seem to be good now.

However, with the wet, Hobie has begun having hairballs, about once a week he'll hack one up. He's never had them in 4 years, so it's definitely related to the wet food. He's shorthair, but does have a thick coat.

Is it normal for food to cause this? Can I do anything? So far adding fiber, brushing, and bathing him more doesn't seem to prevent it.

Food & Nutrition > Better to feed low quality wet or the highest quality dry?

Wanted to update. I've been giving them exclusively the Authority turkey & giblets for a couple of days now and we've only had solid poopies. Amazing! I'm honestly surprised the quality/protein level was perhaps the issue. I guess I figured since they were always on high quality high protein dry they'd have no problem with the wet. Guess I was wrong. shrug

Cats and a Clean Home > Discontinued Litter - need recs for changing brands

Arm & Hammer also makes an unscented litter, has very little dust, clumps well, and has good odor control. I would give it a try, we used it for a long time before switching to the Feline Pine. I even bought mine at Walmart, so it's decently priced and not super hard to find.

Cats and a Clean Home > Desert's Sand Litter

Okay, can't recommend this stuff. The cats love it, but there are little sand piles all over the bathroom and they're kinda gross looking. You can scoop up pee clumps if you're super careful, but it uses up a ton of litter. In two days the litter has been severely depleted and the box is almost out. Kind of ridiculous. It does have an odd smell too when used, but not horrible. Nobody has actually pooped in it yet.

I know I've seen it mentioned here before, has anyone tried it? Just saw it at Walmart and picked up a bag to try. It's in one of the boxes but hasn't been used yet. I'm anxious to see how it works, though I do have nightmares about sand tracked everywhere...

It was about $7 for 6lbs, which fills up my litter box. It's supposed to last quite awhile though and can be flushed or composted, or used in the garden.
