Dry food vs. canned food for cats
The two most popular types of cat food are dry and canned food. Choosing which type to buy can be confusing, but I'm here to point you the benefits of each type, as well as the disadvantages. Let's start off with dry cat food. Most cat owners will agree that this is a better choice of the two. Why you ask. Well it's definitely more economical (than canned food), can be stored for a long period of time (unlike canned food), does not leave a mess,and even if it pours on the floor, it is really easy to clean. The main con of dry cat food is that it contains a large amount of carbs and fillers. Carbs are not really necessary for cats because they have a hard time converting it to energy and fillers are low quality ingredients. Regarding canned food, its main benefit is that it contains a lot of protein, which is the main source of energy for cats. Lack of protein and the cat will quickly begin to lose weight and its immune system will be weaker. Another benefit is that contains a large amount of water, keeping the cat dehydrated. The cons of canned cat food are that they are expensive, have to be refrigerated once opened, have a short life time, and can easily leave a mess. Whether you choose dry or canned food for your cat,make sure it is a high quality product with all the important nutrients.

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's more expensive, cat food or dog food?
Cat food is easily more expensive than dog food, due to dogs being biologically capable of processing vegetable proteins whereas cats cannot. This means cat food SHOULD only contain animal protein and is thus more expensive.

I use Tidy Cats litter and it doesn't clump
Why do you want it to clump? If it is to save money or the smell, then I would switch to horse bedding. Yup. You know that expensive pine cat litter? It's repackaged horse bedding. It costs 5.99 for a 40 pound bag at Tractor Supply. It's healthier, tracts less and doesn't add to landfill too.
If clumping is a high priority for you, buy their corn bedding. It's a dollar more, but it clumps. I prefer the pine because nothing hides the smell better.
