Hi Tiikeri, Phillipe has been doing the same thing. It started about a month or 2 before we got married.. I figured that it was bc of all the commotion, etc. We got married, left him with a sitter for about a week and nothing! He went in every day. we came home and he still went in his box, adn now he keeps going outside again. The trouble some part is.. he'll go in his box for a smaller poop and then the next day take a larger poop outside.. So random. I clean his box as much as possible.. And we just had a full work up at the vet and no medical reason. I think he's just being a jerk! shrug

Cat Health > Pooping outside box

Hi Everybody, Its been awhile since i've visited which is good news because Phillipe has been doing so great. Some of you may remember that Phillipe is on medication for heart failure and asthma. However, he has been doing great. He is loving, active, healthy appetite everything! Now he is due for a check up to make sure his medications are not affecting his kidneys or anything else, but we are very tight on money and i'm hoping to avoid a vet trip.

BUT - the past 2 weeks he has been consistently pooping outside of his box. Typically when he has done this, it seems we left him for too long or something, but now it is when we are home, and this morning after he used his box to pee, he followed me around the apartment and pooped in the kitchen while i was standing right there. And the little guy stared at me while he did it! All that I've read said to take him in for a check up to rule everything out, which i will do if necessary but I am curious if anybody else has had this problem or what could be up with him?

Also, this morning when he did it, i yelled at him and picked him up and put him in his box, which he didn't go in.. he just ran away from me. Was i too tough on him? How can i discourage this behavior in the future?

Cat Health > Asthmatic Cat- Alternive to inhaler while we go on vacation?

Phillipe is on an inhaler too! He was on it twice a day, but did so much better once i began they lowered me to once a day.

I found a pet sitter who was once a vet tech, may be worth looking around locally. Fortunately Phillipe is extremely food driven so anybody with some tuna fish will get him to come out..

Is there a snack that will prompt him out from hiding? Maybe you can try having your friends lure him out to acclimate him to strangers? You may be surprised what tuna will do! I suspect the vet will say that it is not good to not give him his inhaler, it could lead to a bad attack and you will not be there to care for him if he has one frown

Any more questions pls let me know. Phillipe has been on his inhaler since April I never thought he would warm up to it, but he is SUCH a good boy about it now, i can't believe it.

I hope Mutzi is ok!! My little man has a heart condition and asthma.. if you ever want to talk, let me know. Also, I use Pet Meds for all his medications and they've come thru for me in emergencies sometimes. May be good to have as a back up..

Food & Nutrition > Abady Granular Cat food

The directions dont say one way or the other. You could either feed it dry or wetten it a little bit. i haven't determined what consistency works best for him just yet. He ate it dry, but seemed to be a little too dry for him.

they suggested i feed him 1/8 of a cup, twice a day, along with his small half can of wet food.. So almost like a persons diet - 3 small meals a day. Phillipe is so food driven i think he'd eat me if it was down to just the two of us, lol, so he's been enjoying it.

I just want to know if anybody else has had results with it. Like i said, the pet shop owner swore by it. And it wasn't like he was trying to upsell me.. there are other foods out there that are more pricey.

Hi, Has anybody tried this? Our pet store owner is a certified pet nutritionist, and since I am about 5 - 7 lbs overweight, he suggested this. It looks like brown sugar, but I eat it right up. Was curious if anybody has tried it, and if i should be getting it dry / granular, or if my mama should mix it with some water?

Thanks guys. My mom got me the inhaler and kept putting tuna in it so i am not scared of it. Because i needed the relief we couldn't really wait a few days to get acclimated, so my mom had to wrap me in a blanket, hug me and give me lots of kisses while my dad put the mask on me. I am not afraid of the device so much but get a little freaked out when i see the blanket come towards me! I just hope i get good enough at this so one of my parents can do this on their own!

Hi,
Last night my coughing was acting up, i was congested and it was hard for me to breathe. Kept my poor worried parents up all night. They really thought it was my heart failure, and brought me to the vet this morning. There was no fluid on my lungs and the vet said i had a really bad asthma attack. apparently allergies are bad this year and i am affected just like anybody else.

Vet suggested an Aerokat inhaler and upped my broncodialator.

Has anybody else had asthma? do the attacks come and go? my mom is just glad my lungs didn't have fluid ie. heart failure.

oh and i have to go on a diet. Rang in at 17.5 lbs today shrug
