After months of struggling with kidney disease, my mom and dad set me free from my pain today. I know it was very hard for them, but I was getting weaker and had no interest in life any more. I am now playing at the Raimbow Bridge with the others that went before me. little angel

Food & Nutrition > Best dry food for a cat on a diet?

Please keep trying to convince her that even adding one can a day to the cats meals will be a big help in the battle of the bulge. Remember though to start out giving just a tiny portion, maybe just a spoonful of wet food in the beginning. The poor kitty's tummy is so used to dry 'ol food that we don't want to shock it and cause tummy troubles. But wet food is SO much healthier, even Friskies, but don't get any of the flavors with gravy, they contain wheat gluten, which is not good for cats. This site ibdkitties.net has a great listing of foods to choose from that will get her cat on the road to good health!

Food & Nutrition > Healthy food to get fat cats to lose weight?

The two websites Shadow listed will give you many great choices.
A few I recommend are California Natural Grain Free Chicken (dry), but remember to get the best weight lose results and best overall health for any feline, wet food is a must! Even if you replace on meal a day with a canned food such as Friskies (the ones listed on ibdkitties.net)
you will be doing your kitty a great favor.
Purrs to good health!

Cat Health > Cat teeth cleaning is it safe?

I had gingivitis too starting when I was pretty young. I have had to get most of my teeth pulled, and while it wasn't fun, I got over it really well. It's been 6 years since I've been without most of my teeth and I'm doing great! No more bad breath or sore mouth.
One thing my momma learned was that we cats need more wet food than dry. Dry food does not help clean our teeth. Our teeth are not designed for grinding up hard dry food. Also dry food is loaded with carbs which break down into sugar when stuck in our teeth.
Good Luck with your cleaning and purrs for good health!

Behavior & Training > Do My Brothers Miss Me?

It's been almost a week since I crossed the Rainbow Bridge and mom is wondering if my brothers are missing me. They seem to be quieter and one has even began sleeping in my bed, which he never did before.
The first couple of days after I was gone it seemed they were looking around the house for me, checking out all my old hangouts.
Do cats from multiple cat houses miss another when they're gone?
I know mom misses me because I still hear her talking to me.

Mom was right there with me saying how much she loved me and I know she did as much as I loved her.
I'm now an angel and Mom would be comforted knowing I've got my wings. Can someone let her know how to put my wings on me?

Nellie, what I meant is that some commercial foods are "better" than others. There are the grocery store foods and then there are the "better" foods that are usually sold at independent pet food stores. I would consider Wellness and California Natural a couple of the "better" commercial foods.
I know raw food is ideal, but you also have to carefully balance some supplemental vitamins etc. along with raw feeding and some humans just can't or won't do that, so that's where the "better" commercial foods come into play.

Bubbles had asked if there was any dry food that was better than Purina Indoor and I was just trying to give some options that were "better".

Any of those canned foods will be alright, especially if Tigger is used to eating them. A little hint is to add just a small amount of extra water to the canned food. Cats that tend to block need extra moisture and adding a little water to the wet food gives them that.
Friskies makes a Special Diet canned formula that is supposed to help with urinary issues, so you might want to look for that and try a can or two.
Most importantly is to drop the dry food and find some canned foods that everyone likes. It takes some trial and error, but eventually it will happen. Good Luck to you and purrs for Tigger to be well.
