Choosing the Right Cat > Adding a cat to a new lease

When Mom signed the first lease she told the landlords we have one cat, so they put "one cat" in the lease. I asked her if she can talk them into adding another cat in the 12-month renewal. Has anyone else done this and succeeded?

It was obvious she hated moving but I never thought that could translate into not liking the same chairs and canned food anymore or loving the tile floors.

I tried to talk Mom into adopting another cat but she said the lease does not allow it. cry

Home Prepared Food & Recipes > What meat source should I use?

I am a strong opponent of feeding raw food, but I also have doubts about the quality of meat in canned foods. So I was wondering two things:

1. Is it OK to cook commercial raw cat food so they'll eat the same thing without getting bacteria and worms?
2. Can I use human-grade meat and gravy instead of the pet-quality stuff labeled cat food?

I don't want to settle for pet-quality meat and for me cooking is required!

This is an interesting topic. I never thought it served a purpose because not all cats have one.

Senior Cats > Patricia's 16th birthday

I don't know if it really is her birthday, but I think it is June 16 because that was 7 weeks before August 4 (the day I adopted her). She will get extra treats and love today. Happy Birthday Patricia!

Merlin, I have seen the term "spay sway" before, but that does not make sense because if spaying caused it, all spayed cats and only spayed cats would have it. Of course the pouch may become more noticeable after the surgery is done, but in no way is spaying the cause.

Patricia has one that swings when she walks fast but not when she walks slow. She is an American shorthair and has NEVER been overweight. I don't know when I first noticed it, but I always assumed it was a harmless layer of fat.

Home Prepared Food & Recipes > Considering Home Cooking

The raw vs. cooked debate is like the declawing debate: You can't make others agree with you, but having your own opinions about it doesn't hurt as long as they are based on facts. FWIW my personal belief has always been if you can't prevent the ingestion of worms and harmfu8l bacteria in raw food, do NOT feed any amount of it to your cats no matter how beneficial it seems to be.

That said, the melamine scare in 2007 and a vet saying cats don't need to eat kibbles during that recall made me start thinking cooking for cats is a great idea if I can do it right. When I get another cat I will try it with him/her.

This might be a crazy idea but cats have a lot of them so I don't care.

Is it possible to cook something for myself (not foods I know are dangerous for cats, of course) and share it with my cat? I know we don't have the same nutritional needs, but there are some similarities, such as eating meat with gravy, NOT eating bones or eggshells, and of course COOKING the meat.

I heard no such meowing at my house in Ohio, but after moving to Florida last year, I am hearing it frequently. Patricia only meows at the top of her lungs when I don't know where she is. She remembers where her food and water are. I am never in the same room when she meows unless it means, "Give me treats." I don't see how it can be age-related dementia when it is connected to the move but her 16th birthday is next week. Can someone explain this one?
