Raw Food Diet > Eggy situation

I've never had this happen but yes, I would cut back the egg in the next batch and perhaps slowly reintroduce it as she gets more used to the raw. However, I would definitely cook the white - uncooked I believe it can prohibit the absorption of certain vitamins. I can't recall the details off the top of my head but there's a definite reason for cooking it. Good luck!

Rescue, Adoption & Happy Endings > Rehoming a Cat - Private Listing

Unfortunately the bottom line is that there are more cats than homes - everywhere. The rescues aren't being difficult - they're full up and have limited resources. Keep trying but I think your best bet is going to be finding her a home yourself. Network her nonstop. Ask your friends to ask their friends. Ask your vet's office. You'll have to do your own home check but it will be worth it to know exactly where she's going. Best of luck - I know how hard it is.

Food & Nutrition > What is the best choice of food for a cat with a sensitive tummy? Please help!

Although I feed raw and believe in it, I understand it's not for everyone. All you should aim for is to feed the highest quality you can that agrees with her tummy. Every cat is different. If you're sure that there's nothing going on with her (parasites, bacteria, etc.) you should try her on one brand at a time until you find one she can easily tolerate. I do recommend feeding canned food only for other reasons. Try to feed a food with as few ingredients as possible so there's less for her to react to. Good luck!

Raw Food Diet > Newbie, need some advice with meat sources!

No need to limit yourself - at least give beef a try to see if he'll eat it. It's more a question of preference than intolerance - food sensitivities are pretty rare. Lamb is great and these days pork is pretty safe. I've fed it and never had a problem. I'm not sure what other proteins would be commonly available in Australia - do you have duck or venison? Those might be more US things. But by all means, try whatever you can get from a trusted source.

Cat Health > Searching for information on scoliosis.

I've never heard of kitty scoliosis. Could this be a spinal injury or severe CH? Were an x-ray or any other tests done? There are plenty of groups out there for paralyzed kitties that can help you with practical information to make her as comfortable as possible for as long as she has. Best wishes and kudos for taking on this special girl.

Cat Health > Moe is Fat

He's fat because you're feeding him dry food. Dry food is low protein and high carb. That leads to obesity and down the road can cause other issues like diabetes, kidney disease and urinary problems. Switch him to a low carb wet food and he'll be more satisfied and the weight will come off.

Food & Nutrition > What are the least expensive brands of grain-free cat food (both canned and dry)?

I won't feed dry food, but Friskies pate flavors have no gluten, are low in carbs and very inexpensive. It's not the highest quality food but it avoids dangerous ingredients and is not a bad choice when you're on a budget.

Although weaning at 6 weeks is not ideal, she'll be fine. The vet will know what shots she needs and when. She should have a visit as soon as possible to be thoroughly checked out and she can be spayed when she's 2 pounds. Otherwise, feed her canned kitten food, give her lots of toys and lots of love. If you find she's getting into trouble while you're at work you might consider getting another kitten. They do best in pairs because they occupy each other and can play all day. But please, if you do decide to get another, adopt from a local shelter. There are too many homeless cats for people to be buying them.

Food & Nutrition > Best dry food to feed growing kittens?

Actually, dry food does not have more protein than canned. You can research this yourself very easily. In order to create kibble that holds together in those shapes there has to be some kind of binder, which is always carb based - whether it's corn, wheat, potato starch, etc. This makes them very high in carbs, which can cause obesity and diabetes. There are charts out there that show what percentages of different foods are protein/carbs/fats and canned food is always higher in protein which is what your cat needs. You can feed something as cheap as Friskies pate flavors. They're low in carbs and fine for growing kittens while keeping costs down.

As far as nutrition, all commercial cat food is nutritionally complete.

Cat Health > Diarrhea

I've had foster kittens with diarrhea that did the same thing. They're busy playing, the box is too far and they go wherever they are. A week isn't that long but there are a few things to do if it persists. If you haven't had a fecal exam done, you should do that first. It's common for kittens to have parasites. You can also add a bit of pumpkin to his food (plain pumpkin in a can, not the pie filling) and see if that helps.
