I need your help.
I have three cat-related problems that I am hoping you have some experience with, and can share how you dealt with them.
Yella Fella needs to lose some weight.
At the vet’s office yesterday I was told he could develop diabetes. I knew he needs to lose weight, and have taken some steps to help him, but they’ve not been enough. So he’s going on a special food- Prescription Diet Metabolic (which is OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive!) and eating separately from the others.
Have you helped a cat lose weight? Was this in a multi-cat household? What worked for you and what didn’t?
I bought the cats a food maze in hopes it would appease the ‘hunting for food’ desire in them.But guess what? They won’t eat from it!
Even if i knock the food out myself, they don’t want to eat from the feeder.
I asked the vet about this yesterday and she cautioned me to make sure they do eat daily, but to keep trying to get them used to the maze.
Have you helped your cats develop a new habit, particularly with eating? What did you do? How long did it take?
I cannot stand cat litter scattered all over the floor. In our last home I had one room dedicated solely to litter boxes, but in this smaller apartment that’s not realistic. I’ve tried mats, covered boxes, different litters, but so far I’ve not managed to find a solution that we all can live with.
What has worked for you to minimize (or eliminate) litter scattered all over the floor?
I know I usually don’t ask for advice, but this time I am, so please share with me what has- and has not- worked for you. Has nots help me know what NOT to try. No idea is too crazy, provided it’s not expensive and it works.
Thank you in advance, and here’s hoping together we can find something that works for me and the cats.
