The only time my cat learned to stay off the counter was when we used to have a glass stove top and they attempted to cross when it was on.

This is the only thing that worked for me. They don't get up there unless I take the foil off for an extended period thinking that they have learned to not get up there.

I have to take one of my little ones in to the vet today. She is normally off the wall like her brother, but the last 2 days she has been hiding under the coffee table, doesn't really want attention, and has been completely uninterested in food, which is very abnormal. Hopefully just a little under the weather, but i know friends who have had kittens get into things they shouldn't, namely one that ate a shoelace and had to be put down, so i'm probably being a bit over nervous.

Check the last few pages under my name. Take him to the vet and get xrays. Hope it's not a foot long piece of something wrapped up in his intestines. My vet made no mention of them needing to be put down for something like this unless you just don't have the money. But do it soon.

Lucky you. That would have been the $200 solution. Instead I got stuck with the $875 solution. Glad to hear.

So I go to a Subaru forum for exhaust ideas, do a search for dp with cat, and find this thread. Here are my three:

Anyone ever had a cat with a broken jaw? My cat recently either got kicked in the face, hit with something, or hopefully hit by a car rather than someone. He ended up with a badly broken jaw and a bunch of broken teeth. Its been about a week and we have had to syringe feed him. Its tough to syringe feed a cat at the best of times especially when they are in pain, but adding a broken jaw into the equation makes things very difficult. I hate to see him in pain, i would sooner put an animal down than watch them suffer but all the vets ive talked to say he will make a full recovery. Basically what im wndering is if anyone has had experience reteaching a cat with a broken jaw how to eat? I realize it's only a been just over a week, but its strange. Ive tried all sorts of wet cat food, and soft treats, and he wont eat anything. I will shake the bag of soft treats and he will get all excited, but when i try to give it to him he wont try to eat it. He seems frusturated withh it as if he wants to drink, but just sticks his paw in his dish and looks at the water. The only thing has tried to drink out of is the sink when e water is running, so yesterday i went and bought a circulating/filtered water dish and again, he seems frustrated by the fact he cant drink it. Ive been givinghim painkillers and an appitite stimulant, but i really want him to start eating on his own, as syring feeding is very hard and uncomfortable for everyone involved. Sorry about my **** grammar im on my ipad.

You'll be missed, Ocelot.

Meh, I would rather have my cat die being outside and happy than spend every day of his life meowing at the window. Every cat is different I guess, but mine likes to go outside and I think cats should be able to go outside.

Yeah, he loved being outside. If you kept him inside for more than a day, he'd turn into the biggest *******. But as soon as you let him out for at least a few hours, he'd be your best friend.

To each their own, but in my experience, if they don't go outside they never meow at the window to go out. It really doesn't take very long before they forget about being out there, and they live half again as long and have fewer diseases and zero wounds.

Anyone recommend cat food to help Chloe lose weight? She is a little over 15lbs. Only feed her twice a day. Oh and a snack at 4am because she comes into my bedroom bitching until I get up to feed her. She currently eats nutro indoor healthy weight.

Just feed them small amounts more often, ween her down. It's tough, just like a humans diet. They can get fat off of anything, I buy good catfood, halo chicken.

Mine are on EVO Weight Management and they like it, but it is expensive. The instructions on the bag seem to work pretty well, but you have to strictly adhere to the feeding guide.

Get a grain-free brand, and feed judiciously. Its hard when a hungry cat is begging all the time!

I know what you're saying, and its true, but i still feel cats should be allowed outside. My cat was indoor for the first 2 years because i lived in apartments. i was concerned with letting him out at first and like you said he really didnt car about going out. So when i moved i started letting him out when i was on the patio or whatever, and was in his glory. He wouldnt even leave the patio let alone the yard... Hes more like a dog than a cat in the sense that he likes to stick around his people. He would really never leave the yard, and he just seemed so much happier. But again, i wouldnt have had to pay 800 bucks and go through the struggle of feeding now if he was indoor, so i fully understand what you are saying.
Speaking of which, anybody have advice on my earlier post?

I'll let my old Queen (who was a feral kitten when I first got her) outside, but she's not retarded. And I don't do it often, coz she's 11 years old and hasn't been an outside kitteh in years, so she gets supervised release. The younger 2 aren't allowed to go outside, and only the orange male is craving to go outside. He's too dumb though, so it doesn't happen. RE: your earlier post, maybe watering down the food to a slurry and letting him lap it out of a bowl would help. Is he able to lap/lick? (So sorry if I missed it.) Otherwise, I'd stick with high-caloric food replacer and help make the syringe feeding less dramatic.

Regarding the fat cat BrandonJoe has, I'd definitely get off the Nutro, at least get onto a grain-free dry, but I had dramatically better success feeding wet food for weight loss. You might have to teach your kitty that wet food *is* food, if she's been on kibble her whole life, but it's generally a much higher quality product and will therefore help her feel full longer. You're already restricting her feeding, using canned won't be any harder. My personal preferences for canned food are Blue Buffalo's Wilderness or Wellness, but you can see what the kitty likes. Only thing I will suggest is not feeding Friskies canned, but then I've never seen a cat look healthy that was eating it. Their coats are always greasy, they're always in a bad mood, they smell, their teeth are bad, it's a generally unpleasant cat. That's just my two cents though, good luck!

Eek, the wet food is hardly ever good for them, or so it seems.

I give some tuna or plain chicken once or twice a week as a treat, halo chicken stew 3x daily. One medium+ feeding when I wake, one very small feeding at 7pm, the a medium feeding before bed. My cats were fat before this regiment, I use to just fill the bowl; huge mistake.

So my 7 year old male is humping my clothes. We neutered him when he was a few months old, and recently he's been having his way with any article of clothing that belongs to me. At times he will get to my girlfriends clothes, but my clothes is taking the hit mostly.


I thought that dogs were the ones that did all the humping, why the hell is my cat doing this now?
