Yes, this shows why it's important to keep the rabies booster up to date--even if there has never been a case in your area, if a kitty got bitten or scratched badly enough by anything not known to be vaccinated, and had to see a vet they could end up in quarantine while being monitored Sorry, Meowma is very afraid even though the disease is really pretty rare in the US--there are scary rabies videos on Youtube but she had to sit thru an entire hour of an even scarier older film made in Africa which freaked everyone watching out! But if you are vaccinated, even that remote chance goes away smile

It'as also important to know that even animals that are not the 'usual' carriers in your area can certainly still have rabies. Rabies can and does infect ANY mammal if they arebitten. Even a dog or cat bite should be treated as a possible source if that animal is unknown/unavailable to be inspected. That's why peopleget the whoe rabies protocol done if they are bitten by a dog that no one recognizes; if you wait to see what happens in the cae of unknowns, it's too late. I just had an 8 hour seminar on rabies and we even sawfilms of livestock with it which no one would suspect,i don't think.

Actually raccoons are one of the most common rabies carriers! I would at least call and check with your vet tosee what they say, better safe than sorry. Usually a booster is in order

I don't know what you feed but nutro naturals and Pro Plan Indoor formulas do help the poo smell less bad, they do have some grain but if she tends to fatness just cut the amount of food. Hugs, and missing our old BooBoo

As usual, dodging rocks...this kitty apparently is full grown and is not real happy inside; she might just have to live outside and take her chances. If you can get a cat dence, I hear those do work well. Just be sure to use flea/parasite control. I still worry what happened to poor old ringo, who someone neutered and declawed as an adult after he had been feral and I later adopted--he was caught in AC's trap and I thought some jerk had thrown him out. But when i did some floor work involving chemicals and HAD to open windows here he hauled a... never to be seen again-- he had peed indoors here and there the whole time i had him, and alwayds wanted out; I hope he survived. But, to put my view on your questiuon, I had tried everythingunder the sun and he would still pee outside (and in) the box. I just think he REALLY didn't want to be inside and had he not been declawed I would have let him be ann indoor/mostly out kitty even though I strongly disagree with cats having unrestricted access to outside.

Yes, look for the AAFCO compliance label to meake sure it's a complete( 'no, not holistic or premium, but nutritionally complete) foodm not a snack, appetizer, or treat.
OP, if you want something a bit more nutritionally effiecient (less poo, more nutritionally compact0 Purina proPlan available at petSmart PetCo Pet Supp;y Plus, etc is a decent alteranative.
Having been thru the raw/holistic/premium/et al mill more times than I care to count, I DO find Purina to be very consistantly good quality food-- we feen ProPlan, also use Royal Canin. Canned around here means fANCY fEAST, pRO Plan, Friskies and equivalent generics detemined by Meowma putting on the reading gleasses and checking to see they are identical.
Being we have lots of cats of various age and conditions, show and breed kittens, we like being consistent, and having palatable food that everyone eats and gains or maintains condition on without refusing food, losing condition, getting diarrhea or other ill effects, etc.

We think a 5-6 9monh old kitten might be :"just right"...old kitt can say when to stop, which will help the kitt, but the youngun will be afraid enough t listen. If you want to get a grown, senior cat, get the opposite sex...annd thanks for getting an 'oldie', you won;t regret.

We have so much trouble posting that we hardly ever do it anymore, but we awant to reminfd you that just as with people, genetics and metabolism matter; Maine Coons, Manxs,Ragdoll American shorthair as breed examples have lower metabolic rates (as do just-plain -cats like me with the big boy gene) and a little food goes a long way; the littlest Burmese girl here (5 pounds) would starve on what keeps Cruiser big, and Orientals and Siamese have high metabolism rates also. You have to figure in how active they are too; bottom line, if he isn't happy with less food, you have to go to a less fattening one.
