Can I feed my cat dog food?

You shouldnot feed dog food to your cat because cats have different dietary needs than dogs.For example, cats need taurine, which is absent from commercial dog food(because dogs can make their taurine, while cats cannot).

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!

Can I purchase new scratching posts replace old ones on a whisker city cat tree.

I re-roped my scratching post. Get 3/8 sisal rope. The hardest part was getting the post off the base and wrapping the rope tight. You will need a staple gun. Round staples are best but I think you can work with flat ones. Only use them at the ends and bury them well.

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 :>)

So, I read about melatonin and how it suppressed feline ovulation. Is it true and why are we not using it already to stop over population?

Question moved to the correct CATegory :>D Well the research is sound and borne out by the clinical research. It is of use to breeders but more difficult with strays and giving them their daily medication. The traditional way of trapping and spaying is more guaranteed and a permanent solution. Check out the link. https://www.google.com/search?q=melatonin+and+how+it+suppressed+feline+ovulation ..

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.

Can you give follow up story about picture you aired with man rescued sitting in a boat with his wet cats in a crate?

No, because Fixya doesn't post stories. News sites do. And even if you hunt for this story now, you will encounter other news stories of rescues of cats in even more challenging circumstances. There is simply not enough unique elements of this story to pull up what you are looking for among what you supplied. Man in boat with crate of cats is not a phrase that will locate what you seek. Sorry. But a cat lover's forum might turn up someone with a source to the story.

Littermaid LM980 Turns itself off

I own the second gen version. Just purchased it recently. Mine has an option for a time setting. The switch either goes forward or backward for the automatic cleaning. One side is 20 min intervals the other is via the sensor. I know this is many years late. But I can across your post and thought I would answer. Did your issue ever get resolved?

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".

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.
