Cats & Travel > I am moving to London - litter box in the crate question

I hope it goes well, what about pellets or paper litter (not shredded the pilly kind)? they are supposed to be very absorbent and wouldn't make as big a mess.

You can never tell how a cat will react though to the situation. It may be calm and wait to go toilet when everything has stopped and calmed down and its on terra firma or it may have a messy accident from fear so I would definitely put something in there even if it was wadded up towels in one corner just for in case.

We will welcome you to London with open paws!

Someone mentioned earlier about Allergy Shampoo. My best friends boyfriend is allergic to cats but wants to come over and meet the kittens. Besides vacumming I wanted to do anything I could to help him not have a reaction. I couldn't find any shampoo but I did find some whipes on PetPlanet which claim to be good for allergy sufferers and since it doesn't involve water I decided to try them. I'm not sure how the kittens will react to water because at the moment we only use it to disuade them from doing things they shouldn't and it acts as a good deterent.

We'll let you know how it goes.

When Lyra is sat on me, if I say "kisses lyra kisses" She'll put her little mouth and nose to my lips. Sometimes when she gets up to move about on me she'll just touch her nose and mouth to my lips before moving on.

I also kiss their heads before I go to bed and when I leave the house. They sit on the arm of the couch and present their heads and wait for me to say goodnight or goodbye.

Behavior & Training > Litter box issue.. losing my mind!!!

Ascher, just wondering about the depth of the litter? I know sometimes cat really like to bury their poop and if they feel the litter is not high enough for them to make a sufficient hole, this could turn them off to the box.

It could also be the automatic litterbox, maybe he doesn't really like it and is trying to tell you so by sometimes depositing a message outside?

In the past I've occassionally bathed cats if they were particular stinky or unwell and couldn't clean themselves properly. I wouldn't do it frequently unless needed but it sounds like your husband needs to have the cat washed regularly in order to tolerate it and as long as the cats skin and coat are ok and the cat doesn't mind, I don't see anything wrong with it.

Also there are dry shampoos for cats on the market which I've used on rescue cats to get them cleaned up from their life on the streets. This way you don't have to get them wet or deal with them freaking out near water and taking a limb as payment for the degridation. As long as a cat doesn't mind being touched the dry shampoo is quite easy to use. Usually its a spray on whipe of type of solution.

It was merely a suggestion not a lecture, I wasn't telling her what to do or not to do. You've read way into my post then was actually there.

Ola Benny and Pete!

We've trained the humans to give us Sardines as a way of distracting us when they are eating, pretty clever don't you think?

Behavior & Training > Eating feces and litter

Caesar

Hello, we've caught Caesar eating his feces in the litter tray a few times and we're worried about it, also him eating litter which is clung to it. My husband read not to let the kittens have clumping litter as it mucks up their systems if they swallow it so we have been using regular litter.

My husband has been trying to throw water on Caesar when he attempts to eat feces (he doesn't do it all the time) but we don't want to put him off going in the litter tray.

He is very fussy about the tray and becomes very vocal when using it and digs really deep in the litter. He is generally pretty good about covering up but if he misses and gets something on the edge of the tray and can't cover it properly he gets pretty upset and starts digging at the newspaper we've put on the floor under and around the tray.

I wondered if anyone had any ideas about how to get him not to occaissionally eat the feces and whether the litter things was true or not.

thanks

Kitten Corner > Age

Agreed, a vet should be able to tell right away. They've always been able to age the cats I've rescued over time.

In the picture I would say 3mos sounds about right but its often hard to tell from a pic.

Izzie: I had a main coon for years (Bruce) he was the most beautiful and sweetest cat ever with such a tiny meow for such a big fluffy rabbit. We used to call him rabbit because of his paws.
