Have you made any recent changes in diet? Do you give your cat dairy products? Have you had your cat tested for intestinal parasites? Any unusual stressors recently?
Any small toys/objects missing? A visit to your vet would not be amiss.
Some folks use organic pureed pumpkin (not pie filling).
Best wishes!

We get the guilt thing. I have never had to re-home a cat but I have thought long and hard about the "what ifs".
My take on your situation - I would let your mom adopt your 2 original cats - they love where your mom lives and have become used to a larger area than you can provide. The bonus is your mom LOVES them!! How wonderful is that? AND she would be willing to keep them, love them, and care for them. You get to visit them and continue to love them as your siblings. Hard to change roles? Yes, but you have to think of what is "best" for them - and you ARE thinking and in reality KNOW what you should do.
It sounds like the "new" kitty is missing YOU. (and you are missing her).
Don't feel guilty - go for the gusto! You have the makings of a great living situation for ALL concerned!
Bless you for being so concerned about the right thing to do and being such a loving catmom!
Hugs and purrs

It is better to adopt the kitten(s) out after 12 weeks with their mom and sibs.

It is always difficult to lose a loved one. I send my deepest sympathy to you and your family.
It sounds like you did everything right for Austin and he was lucky to have such a loving momcat.
We send you hugs and purrs.

ok- hmmm. Let's get Fake Cats going again! Seriously is everyone on FB? Do yoou have any cat stories to tell?
This past year I have been going to shows. Mumma said she is campaigning me in the CFF Household pet division. So far I'm doing ok (I'd rather stay home and sleep, but that's another story).
Is any one else doing anything fun or different? Let's hear about that!!

Cat Health > Does my cat need an IV and Blood work for spay?

Marlin- Purrkins

Welcome to Wild- Kingdom!
 
 
Purred: Thu Feb 27, '14 5:53pm PST 
Actually I would choose having an IV. I work as a RN in an ambulatory surgical unit - we have lot's of kids come in for tonsillectomies and such. None have blood work done - most kids (and cats) at that age are healthy and the trauma of drawing blood is best avoided. An IV allows for emergent care (if there is a need for that).
But if having neither done is an option, and you are comfortable making that decision - go for it.

Grooming > Any tips on preventing mats?

Claude- Hoppurr

Claude NOT- Clod!!!
 
 
Purred: Wed Feb 19, '14 6:58pm PST 
Some people with long haired cats use a stitch remover to help get mats out. Mats usually form when the fur gets greasy - I use Psssssst(dry shampoo) to help remove the grease. If your cat won't let you spray him - try using cornstarch on a makeup brush and brush/dab it in, let it be for a day or 2 and then gently comb it out. A brush won't help here - you need a wide-toothed comb, I think.
Degreasing once a week should do the trick. Applying an anti static coat conditioner should help too.

Good luck!

WOW!
Am assuming that your lease includes allowing cats or pets. That is important.
Don't know much about The Sphinx breed myself except that they need to be kept warm. Competed against one this past weekend at a show and he seemed like a nice cat, but was nervous so he acted out a bit.
Just being consistent in correcting unwanted behaviors with what ever means you choose to use is appropriate - I used to use a squirt bottle with water in it to discourage unwanted behaviors, but now that I show one of my cats and use squirt bottles to apply things to enhance my cat's fur, I avoid using squirt bottles for disciplining my cats. I use clapping my hands and my voice to varying degrees of success laugh out loud .
Declawing is not a desired way to keep your cat from clawing at things. It is a cruel surgical procedure that most cat owners avoid. Clipping claws every few weeks is a better way to prevent clawing. The two of you should have no difficulty getting your cat used to this. Begin by handling the cat's paws everyday. Massage the paws, work on unsheathing the claws by gently pressing them at the base of the claw one at a time. Do this for a few minutes daily with soft words and patting - finish by rewarding a good session with his/her favorite treat. If you are unable to clip the claws yourself - find a groomer or ask your vet to do it for you.
Good luck with your new kitty !
