Scooter stated the book,, cat vs cat
and I bought this book myself, because I have 3 cats, and it seems like an excellent book!
I would pick it up if I were you and read it, I havent finished reading it myself yet though

Moms thought about it but doesnt like the idea.
The fact that the big contraption thingy is part of the litter space, and one of us being clasterphobic didnt seem like a good idea.
Also our litter likes to stick to the bottom of the tray and it just didnt seem like it would scrape it off right.
Some of us spend a good 20 minutes in the litter box, kicking things around and things of the sort and if it went off we would have a heart attack.
Moms going to stick to scooping herself

Grooming > Taking my cat to a groomer

My groomer told me it was important to bathe ragdolls about every 3 months because its important for there coat. So I either bring him in to be groomed if he looks like he needs a nice pampering, or I have my SO do it here at home. He also has an under coat ( like a dog ) and his hair gets sort of greasy alot from that so my groomer told me to use unscented talcon free baby powder, like a dry bath when I notice his hair getting a bit greasy, so I rub that in and brush it out, that also helps keep out any knots as it keeps the hair soft and not frizzy.
I always take him in to the groomer when the hair around his bum is getting quite long so he doesnt get any urine stuck in his pretty hair. She normally shaves the bum area, but if he doesnt want the shaver she will just neatly trim it all.
I also have baby wipes at home, that I use if I notice his bum getting a bit dirty, I just him a bit of a wipe and hes good to go.
I normally brush him a couple times a week, but hes not as keen on it as Id like, so I am working him into getting brushed daily.
Im also slowly working him into having his teeth brushed daily, hes had ginivitus since very young so the vet wants his teeth brushed on a daily basis.
He sure does get hairballs! If I notice hes got a bit of a hairball cough I give him hairball remedy that I bought, its from Hartz, and its like a molassass paste that you squirt out and put on there foot, and then they have to eat it and it really helps. I also notice having him drink alot of water gets the hairball right out.
right now hes on a special diet to loose weight, and is on prescription food at a low amount so anything to be added to the food wouldnt work. But, he does get a squirt of low calorie omega 3 fatty acid daily onto his food to keep his skin from being dry.

Id love to talk to another ragdoll owner! Mine has alot of issues haha, Ill message you smile

Cat Health > How to help dry skin

They were on the capsules first for a coule weeks, then I switched them over to pump form so I wouldnt have to keep poking capsules everyday ( times 3 hha ). They have been on the pump for over a month now.

Ill try putting some water around the house, I know our air is pretty dry.

Ive actually noticed on the short haired cats that the flakes are getting worse lately.

They havent had a bath in awhile but are somewhat due for one, but I bought the same shampoo the groomer uses on my ragdoll, rose shampoo with oatmeal conditioner.

The vet talked to me about there dry skin etc and told me when they went on there new diet the better food would help it, but theyve been on it for about 5 months now, and the vet tech said it works sometimes and sometimes it doesnt.

I just wondered what else there was out there to try

I take my long haired ragdoll to the groomer.
Personally he really enjoys it there.
They comb him and chop at any knots he may have worked to hard for me to brush out, and they shave around his bum so the long hair doesnt get icky from pee etc.
Then she bathes and conditions him, puts him a thing to blow warm air to dry him and then he heads home.

She told me that she uses a special netted type bag for the cats to keep them calm in the bath, there head sticks out one end and they are zippered into it with all these big holes and then that keeps them from fighting etc and they feel secure, and I have to say, it works because hes super well behaved there

Well, we all have super dry skin.
Moms been to the vets about it, they said dry air from the furnace, to use omega 3 fatty acid pumped onto there food every day and flea treatment.
The vet also has us on a high protein diet to loose weight, we on a strict wet food only science diet.
Mommy bought us flea treatment ( advantage ), and we get our fatty acid squirt daily on our food, but our skin is still super dry.
Its driving her crazy, mind you we rarely scratch now because the omega helped that, is there anything else mom can do?

Our female has always disliked the boys, she secretly loves them, youll see her giving them a kiss when noones around, or checking to make sure there bums are clean. sometimes if they are play fighting she will come over and break it up. Otherwise, she just doesnt go near them. She will randomly hit them or something if she feels like it, and they know shes the boss. She prefers to be by herself doing her own thing, while the boys cant leave each others side so it works out well. Theres the odd fight where the boys are trying to play with her and she wont so you have to break it up and send the boys on there way. Its like having kids, and them being siblings, they get on each others nerves and have a fit and get in trouble haha
