Is catnip safe for cats?
I was asking myself the same question when I saw my cat's reaction to catnip. She loves the stuff, but I was a little concerned that it could be addictive or harmful. After doing some research I found an article on Friendly Claws
that discussed catnip at full length. It was useful to find out that catnip can be used to encourage cats to scratch their own posts as opposed to furniture!
It also mentioned that catnip is completely safe and not at all harmful to cats. It's not like a **** or anything, it's just a plant from the mint family that cats have a strange reaction to. As far as I can tell, there's nothing much to worry about when it comes to catnip. According to the article I read, some cats are not even affected by catnip so it's probably not as potent as it may seem.

What do I do about a neighbour's cat coming into my flat & attacking my kitten?
How is it getting into your flat?
It will attack a kitten especially if it is a male. The best thing to do is to keep it out of your flat. Talk to your neighbour.
Also, cats take a while to get used to strangers. This would be fine in your own household, but not in this situation.
It sounds like the neighbours cat was allowed to come into yours and if you have been petting it and feeding it, naturally it will resent the kitten You will just have to keep them apart.

How can i get my cat to use the litter box?
If he is going #2 outside the box, trying putting it in the box uncovered. See if he will get the idea. Or try 2 litter boxes with different kinds of litter. Scoopable litter seems to be good for most cats.
Good luck. :)

My cat got Frontline plus in his eye. What can I do at home to help? I can't afford to take him to the vet right now. Please help.
Eyes are serious and tricky.
You could VERY GENTLY bathe the eye with plain clean warm water. Wiping gently downwards gently making the eyelid close. Then all you can do is leave it up to the cat to apply its own saliva to the injured eye. They do have a form of antisceptic in their salivary glands.
Just keep a close watch and GENTLY wipe away any pus that forms or if the eye sticks shut, with warm water and a cotton ball.
I am sorry you can't take your cat to the Vet, times are hard right now.
I wish you all the best of luck and hugs to you and your cat.
