• Aww, I’m so sorry. I’m glad the other one is doing okay. I was going to suggest that it might be ulcerative colitis, since with that they usually pass both puss and mucus in the stool. But with one so young, I don’t think much could’ve been done for something like that. I hope the other one keeps doing well.

  • Well there is a ton of good advice on here already, but I did want to add this.

    When I first got Snow at 2 weeks old, I was also stimulating her to pee and poop, but she would not poop. She ended up becoming constipated. I ended up having to bring her in to get an enema, which did make her poop. But I found out that I had been stimulating her to…[Read more]

  • Whenever Snow got constipated at that young age, I would either run warm water over her rectum or soak her a couple minutes in some warm water. It would make her poop & pee every time.

    Other things to consider: Have you changed her diet recently? Maybe changed her formula? Is she drinking powdered formula? The powder formula has a habit (in both…[Read more]

  • Oh in case anyone is wondering… Lady refused to refund me. A tough lesson learned for me! ALWAYS demand papers when buying a pure bred kitty! That is what I get for being young & dumb, lol, but I would have never returned Siam… just wanted a refund.

  • Well first I must ask, are you positive kitty is a full blooded Siamese? Did you get kitty from a reputable breeder, or from a private home or shelter? There are lots of cats who look exactly like Siamese (they have the points and everything) but they are mixed. You would not be able to tell by first glance, but when you compare them to breed…[Read more]

  • Well, I would give her lots of treats and play with her a lot (wand toys) to bond with her closely. Since there is a dog in the house, provide lots of things she can jump on to stay up high away from the dog (like shelves & kitty trees & such). Also, provide a spot where she can go to away from everyone (dog included) to de-stress when it is all…[Read more]

  • They look like dried out tapeworm segments, or possibly some other dried out worms. My cat had tapeworms a while back. I combed a couple out of her fur when it was still alive & moist (a wiggling white segment… ewww…). Later when I looked at it ready to bring it to the vet, it was all dried out and dead. When the segments were dried out, they…[Read more]

    Last summer while preparing for the birth of my baby, I was very worried about my cats. I have seven cats (two are strictly outside, and the rest are inside/outside). I was worried because I am the only one who feeds them, and they will not come to strangers. I was worried that they might go hungry and/or wander off looking for food elsewhere only…[Read more]

  • Oh I almost forgot, you should get a couple of scratching posts and place them in the living room & kitty’s fav bedroom, then train kitty to use it. Cats have to scratch something in order to groom their claws & mark territory. To train kitty, just show kitty the scratchy post by placing her two front paws against it in a scratching motion. Then…[Read more]

  • 1. Like SNS said, Dawn does not protect against fleas. I do not know the best flea treatment for cats, as mine are mostly outside cats and I have yet to win that battle (plus they’re not bad in my area…), but be careful what over-the-counter flea sprays and treatments you buy, as a lot of them have been known to cause seizures in pets. I have…[Read more]

  • Good advice already, but I wanted to add that… perhaps you are not feeding the kitten often enough? I’d hate to contradict the advice of a vet, but it sounds like the kitten is barely a week old. I hand raised a kitten from 2 weeks old, and Snow ate at 2 weeks old every 2 hours, sometimes every 1 1/2 hours if she was especially hungry. I’m not…[Read more]

  • Sorry if i am repeating some of the stuff, but with a four month old baby, I don’t have time to read all of the responses. This is actually completely normal behavior for two kittens, and is actually why lots of people get two kittens… cause then the kittens are less demanding as far as play is concerned since they then focus on each other…[Read more]

  • replied to the topic Kitten feeding advice in the forum Cats & Kittens 4 years, 5 months ago

    I have six cats, and all of my cats seem satisfied after they eat their one to two meals a day… all of them except for Tenten. He always seems hungry no matter how much he eats as well. I just feed him the same amount as the rest of my cats, and I make sure he does not “steal” the other cats’ meals. He does not have worms, and I suspect he does…[Read more]

  • replied to the topic Finding homes for adult cats in the forum Purrs 4 years, 6 months ago

    Well, I’ve only used craigslist for rehoming once. It was when I had to rehome my rabbits. It happened when I came to realize that I was completely incompetent in caring for rabbits, and it was in their best interest to be rehomed. The lady who took them (for free) was a retired vet tech and knew a ton about rabbits, and she gave them a great…[Read more]

  • Well I somehow doubt it is the tattoos. I live in the USA and have a RN license, and after I graduated nursing school it took me 2 YEARS to find my first nursing job. It is not just me either. Half of the people in my nursing school class who graduated with me had to look for a year or longer before someone would give them their first nursing job.…[Read more]

  • When you play, do not play with only your hands. The kitty will learn to attack your hands if you do this. I like to use a laser to play with my cats. It keeps them far from your hands and cats LOVE lasers!

  • Is the cat declawed? I would assume no since kitty came from a farm, but in case kitty is, I’ve heard about this a lot with declawed cats because the litter is coarse & hurts their paws. With them, you have to use softer brands of cat litter, like ones made from cedar or news paper. Kittens are also known for having tender paws which are sensitive…[Read more]

  • Huh, thanks much. I had tried google before asking, but google turned up nothing. I had never heard it before beyond a slang for cops (and now I’m going to be googling why it refers to cops cause it makes no sense! lol). I had thought it was an acronym because it’s in caps, so I was making up words it stood for in my head. lol. I got Furry &…[Read more]

  • I’ve been really curious, what does FUZZ stand for? I have only ever heard fuzz used as a slang term for police officers. I’m curious what it means with cats.
