How can I stop my cat from scratching my rugs as a scratching post?

Short answer. You can't. Cats are the Masters. But you could try to give it something more interesting like a fancy cat scratch tree house. Plus you could be bad and squirt it with water from a spray bottle and say NO! every time it does it. :-)

Causes of littering

Male cat meets female cat and exchanges phone numbers. If you refer to a group of young cats or kittens, you can use the traditional term "Litter of cats" or a "Clowder of cats".

Back ground information of littering

I am a professional show breeder - since 1969,. I strongly urge cat owners to nevereverever! use clumping or clumpable litter. You see what happens when it gets a little wet? Well, that same thing can happen when it gets between moist kitty toes, in moist nostrils, moist mouth/lungs, eyes!! While working for a vet we spent TWO DAYS chipping 'concrete' out from between a cat's toes, and have euthanized a few and heard of more, that had compromised nostrils and lungs from the dust in the litter turning to a concrete-like binding!

My cat is sweet calm and has never hissed but has now hissed twice at my one yr old grandson for just being in the same room

Maybe jealousy. I fix jealousy by catching my cat when it does stuff like that and giving it several kisses. For my cat, kissing has worked for years and works every time.

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. Good luck.

I HAVE 3 MOTHERS AND 11 FERAL KITTENS IN MY HOUSE. THEY ARE SEPARATED NOW BUT THEY WANT TO ROAM. CAN I RELEASE THEM ALL TOGETHER WITH NO FIGHTS FROM THE OLDER CATS. ARE THE KITTENS safe?

Cats will sort themselves out, with mothers and litters. The kittens will all play together. They do play fight as practice for being in the wild. Make sure you get the females spayed. Local organizations will probably help you with the cost. I fixed spelling and punctuation :>)

Seems a terrible idea for a pet dish. The paint is peeling off. :( I just used this for water for my cat.

Maybe it was not made or designed to be used as a water dish for pets then. Or it could be a bad pet dish that you had purchased and you should return it and get your money back.

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. :-)

My natures miracle multi cat litter box won't turn on. When I plug it in the light underneath will blink once and then the on off switch doesn't turn on. Anyone know what's happening?

Contact the maker direct. They will know the fault and what needs replacing. It is probably the small stepper motor.

What to look for when buying a cat toy?

When buying a toy for your cat there are three important things you should look for. First, you need to look for a sturdy toy, fi it can get tossed, thrown, clawed, batted, kicked, licked and repeatedly pounced on without coming apart, it's a quality cat toy. Catnip-filled toys encourage play, but most cats like to eat catnip and will always try or lick or chew their way to that scrumptious herbal filling. Second, you need to look for toys without removable parts. Catnip mice with yam tails; crinkly cater-pillars bug eyes and plastic mesh balls with tantalizing little bells inside are the most popular cat toys although they have are potentially dangerous parts that come off. If you can pull a part of decoration off a cat toy do it to all of your cat's toys; it's better to have some catnip mice without tails than frequently visit you vet to get the tails out of your cat's stomach. Third, you should look for something fun for your cat. Cat owners often disappointed and frequently annoyed to find that the 80$ worth of custom cat toys get passed over for a piece of crumpled paper. Cats like games that involve climbing, running, leaping and pouncing. Pick toys that encourage those behaviors and your cat will defiantly use them. Furthermore, cats see moving edges better than stationary object, so toys that wiggle or weave fascinate them and trigger their hunting reflexes.

What vegetables are good for cats?

Cats are obligate carnivores, which means their natural diet is strictly raw meat ONLY. Cats biologically need the complete amino acid chain that is supplied in animal protein. Vegetables have amino acids but are missing certain parts, dogs and humans have the biological ability to synthesize the missing amino acid in vivo but cats can not. So long story short, no vegetables are not good for cats, however my cat loves pumpkin and canned beetroot. It is very hard to find cat food that contains no vegetables, the only way to give your cat the correct diet nature intended is to make it yourself.

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.
