Behavior & Training > Ragdoll - Extremely Independent, scared or just weird?

I have pure breed Birmans. Brownie was pet quality & was 4 months old when he came to our house. Cookie & Candie were show cats. They had 2 litters with only a single offspring from each. So they were not as socialized as Brownie when they came to our house. Cookie (3 yrs. old then) settled in first and made a smooth transition after three months. Candie joined us at the age of 4 & is still a problem child. It took her 1.5 yrs. to warm up to me. She loved everyone in the house but me. (I was Cookie's person per Cookie.) And only this week she started to follow me & talk to me. She almost never talks. I just do not think is a breeder thing unless he was there for years.

But we did have a Birman, Honey that changed after she was fixed. She marked her territories like a boy after the operation. Only stopped when she around 10. She would stand and pee after the operation.

I'm hoping it is just the summer heat. My cats are avoid us more in the summer. All that long fur & now they are laying on the floor to get their bellies cool. Even when we have the air on, they still do not want to be on us. I can not say if you have the same weather as me in StL. But even the Siameses were not lap cats in summer when we had them.

No food changes... No litter changes... And the water bowl is the same... Can you get him to purr or knead on you? Was he doing this before the heat? Is grooming time a happy time? My cats love me during grooming time unless I find a knot. Does he licked you up? I call them kisses.

I going to have to think about it a bit more.

Food & Nutrition > Cat does not want to transition to grain-freee -- ideas?

I tried sample after sample of the grain free kibbles for my babies. I'd visited smaller neighborhood pet stores for the free sample bags. They simply preferred the foods with grains like rice, barley or oatmeal. So I gave up even trying anymore grain-free kibbles. I have picked food withouts corn, wheat, soy or meat by products. I also feed wet foods too. Maybe some nice pate types would be appealing to him. Even the cheaper ones with adding a little extra water would work. You don't have to break the bank on canned foods.

Food & Nutrition > Very VERY Runny KITTENS Poop

A temp. solution is Holistic Select (Eagle Pack) Hoistic Solution. Just sprinkle it over the food. (Prebiotics, Probiotics and Digestive Enzymes provide a natural, 3-way, holistic approach to resolve diarrhea, loose stool, or stomach upset.)

What food are you feeding them? Foods with corn, wheat or yeast to name a few ingredients that can be a problem. I'm hoping one of the other member will add link for cats with IBD. Can you feed an all wet diet of pate type canned foods? What about a raw diet? Think grain free foods.

Food & Nutrition > Why?

Fish has never been a regular part of pets diets up until World War 2. Meats were rationed and the pet for companies started using fish. If you think about it, in the wild the big cats never fished for their food. If salmon is a problem, omit it completely from her diet. I'd skip the tuna too. There are so many other proteins in cat food to try. Venison, lamb, pork, beef, chicken, duck.

Food & Nutrition > How is Instinct Cat food? Urinary problems on Authority.

Even the cheapest canned food is better than any dry for cats with urinary issues. Even raw would be better than dry.

In our house, Brownie likes his wet food ground up. I have to make it like soup with a hand blender with extra water. Cookie like the pate ones. I'm still hoping to find the ones that Candie will eat. We are up to 40 cans a month with Brownie eating 75% of it.

You might have to try a few to see which ones work. I'd lucked out with the cheap ones with gravy for Brownie. (A can a day adds up! But is cheap then a vet bill.)

PetSmart Friends & Family weekend. Friskies is $0.35 a can with the 15% off coupon.

I have a small open litter pan in the bathroom. I found that Candie is lazy and sometimes covers. The better that she cover the better it is for me not to smell it. Are your cats super good at covering? They get rushed they may not and that is a big problem. A covered pan might make that worse.

I had a Litter Genie. The refills are pricy. It was too tall to tuck next in my bathroom. I ended up with a smal rlow profile ectangular trash can I got at Target. You step on the pedal and it opens. Most of the time I grab the lip on the top and open it to put the waste in the can. I used 8 gallon vanilla trash bags from Kmart to line the plastic removeable trash can container inside the stainless holday. $35 for the can and $5 for 30 trash bags. It keeps the odor in. I used the Dr. Elsey and Tide Cat Litter. I got a deal on a Arm & Hammer Utlra Last and it smell wonderful. To get the odor gone in seconds, I have air freshener by Febreze, the air effects one. That fine mist kills the odor fast for my tiny bathroom.

I to do not feed food with corn, wheat or soy. They like the ones with rice, oatmeal, barley and millet. They did not like the potato, sweet potato or pea ones.

Food & Nutrition > leaving my cat with someone while I'm on vacation--but I don't like the food they freefeed

If she is set on Nestle Purina products, would she be willing to try a Nestle Purina that you buy? Ask her if you buy her a bag of Canyon Creek Ranch for free feeding you she put it and only that out while you are gone? It is only $19.00 at Petco and there is a $5 off coupon on their website. CCR is wholly owned subsidiary of Nestle Purina. CCR is the best Nestle Purina makes in my opinion. I like is better than Purina One Beyond. CCR has NO corn, wheat, soy, by product, dyes or preservatives and it is not junk.
