    Mimo,

    Good to know that your kitty is back and that he responds to love. What have you named him?

    As for food, maybe you could try Whiskas. These are fish flavoured, but they do not smell as bad as fish, and no one can tell that there is fish in there. These are small pellets that you can give him right from the pack. You can also soak the pellets in water. My cats love Whiskas. I know that being a vegan is linked to religion, so you must be sensitive to your Mom’s feelings too.

    Then there is another brand of cat food called Topcat. Topcat comprises of chicken pellets. These processed foods are expensive though.

    Buddy, thanks …yes no one is ready to let me bring Whiskas…I have to depend on my neighbour for non-veg..lucky to have them…else here in my locality having a cat that too black one …all take it as negative , though they are used to it ( still I have seen some of the neighbour pelting stone on my PUCHU, while he was playing in the garden of my neighbour , he hardly enter’s anyone home) I dont say anything as it may be more problematic…infact my one cat( Pusa) who lived with us for 14 months was displaced by one family living near by ( which I came to know from someone)Last year on 22nd January I missed him…He was darling of our family and my friendly neighbour’s family…we miss so much …hardly any single goes without remembering PUSA…I wish to share his pic and story with all the frnds of “DailyKitten”

    My friendly neighbour kids have named my new kitty “Chinni”…I call him with so many names that I myself dont remember…today a big cat ( rough one) attacked Chinni…so today he is not making any effort to go out…I wish he gradually will mature …and be like PUCHU…

    Hi Mimo, I understand your concerns. We live in a society that is quite orthodox, especially up there in Patna, where a black cat is believed to be a bad omen. Also, I hope you find some food that Chinni would like, since food motivates them. Nevertheless, I believe that Chinni will return to you not for food but for the love that you give him. Sorry about Pusa. Would love to read his story. Hope he is alive and doing well somewhere.

    Hi Buddy,

    It has been long, I was not able to login. At this end things are going on well and hope that you are having fun time with Ginger,Mint and Pepper.

    My puchu and chini are doing well but the differences between them is gradually is giving me very tough time.Puchu is not at all ready to accept Chini, now chini runs as soon as puchu comes. Puchu infront of me though not do anything to chini , but the anger and hate can be felt through his manner. In my absence puchu jumps over chini , slaps which makes my chini cry. I have to be always alert about their presence. I really dont know if they ever will become frnds or not…

    Chini is gradually enjoying fish , but cant stop chini from going out.Yes, you are right its the love thats why chini come to us ( I will also include my neighbour too, without them it would be really hard to make them happy)…Wish you and your family Happy Holi !!!

    Also Want to wish all the happy colors of Holi to all my Daily Kitten Friends..

    Hi Mimo, it is wonderful that you are taking care of this little one! I was so happy to hear that Chini is doing better. I know you have been given a lot of advice, but I just want to emphasize some things that some of the other folks have said already. As far as Chini’s diet is concerned, cow’s milk will cause diarrhea: cats cannot digest it well. Goat’s milk is much, much better. JCAT gave a great link for making “Kitten Glop”. This will keep him going until he’s able to eat some “real food”. My little ones enjoyed the “glop” very much. However, some “glop” recipes call for baby food (turkey, chicken or lamb) but do not use brands with onions or garlic. If you can get the brand Beech-Nut in India, this is very good. Remember, these are only temporary fixes. All cats have special nutritional needs; most important, is their need for taurine, an amino acid. If they don’t have it, they could go blind. The best thing if Chini does not want to eat solid food yet is a product called “Kitten Milk Replacement (KMR)” This will have all the vitamins and minerals that he will need. (From what I’ve heard, kittens seem to prefer the canned form, rather than the powder.) It is readily available on the Internet. One more thing: contrary to what most people believe, fish, especially raw fish, should NOT be fed on a continual basis. It depletes the cat’s amount of thiamine, an important vitamin. Can you get Chini to eat a poultry product? You can still feed fish, but probably no more than 2X a week. As far as the relationship between Puchu and Chini, this is one of those “two steps forward, one step back” kind of things. They may have to be “re-introduced”. Probably the best site with info for doing this is http://www.messybeast.com/first-impressions.htm. Many other websites use Sarah Hartwell’s article for a resource.

    Mimo, don’t give up! You and Chini have come so far so you should know what the special ingredient in all this is: LOVE! And, please, take good care of yourself, too. Chini and Puchu need a healthy, happy mom!

    Mimo, Debra213 has summed it all up beautifully. Puchu’s behaviour is normal cat behaviour. He does not want anyone to encroach on his territory (your home). Maybe Chini and Puchu need to spend more time together. Pepper, Mint and Ginger are enjoying life. They are such darlings.

    Wishing you too a happy festive season of Holi. For those of us who do not know what “Holi” is, it is the Indian spring festival when people smear each other with colours (you must have noticed that I spell differently) in order to break barriers and initiate love and brotherhood.

    Debra, Most of the foods/ ingredients mentioned above are not available in India. So we have to make do with whatever is available. Cow’s milk and fish is available in plenty, and cats in India freak out on these foods. I try to avoid both, fish and cow’s milk, as much as possible, not because I see them as bad foods, but because I have read that they are not good for cats.

    Thanks a lot Buddy and Debra213…

    On 13th March it would be two months with Chinni. I have experimented with so many foods with Chinni and end up with many interested things about my Chinni…One day while eating “Munch”( chocolate)my neighbour’s kid gave a bit piece to chinni and he ate…we gave more and it ate it all..now its daily dose..Chinni now enjoys Perk too and sometime salty biscuits too, besides fish and poultry products…demands water…started playing with my sleepers just like puchu…Sometime really feel very bad for Puchu…He is my darling baby and the way he feels for Chinni and leaves home in anger and sleeps outside ( yes one thing is good that Puchu has become quite friendly to us after the entry of chinni)…earlier Puchu was only friendly to me, now he loved to be caressd by all family members..and from my Neighbour.

    Debra213, I will go through the articles and will try to follow them…Thanks once again…

    Hi Mimo,

    I read your posts with interest and am glad your kittens are doing well. I also read that you fed Munch (which you said is chocolate)to Chinni and Perk. Please know that chocolate can be dangerous to cats because it can be toxic. So, remember not to offer anymore chocolates to your kitties.

    Thanks TUTTIBELLA for informing about the side effects of chocolate to cats. I will gradually stop feeding Chocolate to Chinni. Because I still feel Chinni has not recovered the way it should be. I want chinni to be just like puchu and ofcourse also want them to see as good companion to each other

    Hi Tutibella

    I am not able to stop my Chinni from eating munch. I tried not to give, but Chinni sits on hunger strike and stops playing. After having a small amount , ready to eat anything and play. Chinni never eats munch in big amount , just a bite. Any substitute for chocolate.

    Junk food junkies are hard to deal with. Try a variety of treats. It is not particularly good for them but Tuna is popular. And you might try a dab of organ meats, (e.g. chicken liver, a sliver of kidney, gizzards). The bonus here is they are actually good for kitty. Dental treats are also a good substitute. The only problem is finding one that they will relish and accept instead of the poisonous (to cats) chocolate.
