Behavior & Training > Malice is very upset about new kittens arrival

Hope things continue to progress with the kitties! We had Elvis who was about a year old when we got our next kitty who was apparently 8 weeks but seemed much younger. Elvis was hissing and kept trying to go after the new one (Baron) but eventually they worked things out. There were times when Elvis was sleeping and I brought Baron up next to him and Baron would lay down and snuggle up and Elvis would either continue sleeping or would find a new place to sleep. They are doing great together now!

We then got two more- Dee who was about 10+ months when we got him and Moose who was 4 months. Elvis had a hard time getting along with Dee and still has a few fights a month with Dee. Things are a lot better now then what they were. If Elvis is hurt/a little off or Dee is hurt/a little off then they will go after one another.

Then we got Pieces who was unsocialized and an abused kitty. It took her about 6 months before being able to leave her room and now finally after three years she gets along with the kitties, does not go after any of them unless feels threatened and is buddies with two. It takes time! They make freeze dried treats for kitties and I've used the freeze dried chicken and turkey to help build a relationship between Pieces and one of the other kitties. They will sit side by side and eat their treats without any issues! Still a work in progress!

Cat Health > My 5 1/2 month kitten has bald spots!

One of the kitties that we adopted from a shelter had weird hard bumpies on the back of her ears and thinning of fur/bald spot on ears and around eyes/mouth. The vet thought it was ringworm but after a few tests came back negative he said it wasn't ringworm. The vet suggested that it might be a food allergy which we tried our best to figure out what it was but decided it was easier to switch to grain free food which then helped clear up the thinning fur within a month or two.

Good luck!

Cat Health > Kitten with poor health - HELP!

You could always try taking her to an emergency vet or urgent care vet to see what they think especially if there isn't another good vet in the area. Hope they figure it out soon! Maybe its the food she's eating? Or something in the environment? I'm not sure just trying to think outside of the box.

Lots of kitty purrs!

I'm not sure what all this could mean but we are sending you purrs to a speedy recovery! Have you considered maybe switching to a new vet for a second opinion? Sometimes fresh eyes are helpful. If you do this, then I recommend getting a copy of the medical records from your current vet.

Cat Health > Injured paw

My poor little bubs has an injured paw. We noticed a slight limp on Friday and have been keeping an eye on it. The more active he is, the worse the limp gets. He seemed to be doing ok the last few days. We've been giving him an antihistamine that makes him relax/sleepy to help him stay off his paw. I also slightly rubbed hand over hurt paw and got no response.

We haven't needed to use it in two days. Tonight I noticed him doing a three legged hop down the hallway which got worse after he jumped up on to the bed and back down. I slightly moved hand over hurt paw which generated his "angry" meow and we immediately stepped away. He continued with this angry meow for about 10 seconds. He has managed to find a place to lay down and has been quiet for about 30 minutes.

I'm trying to figure out if he needs/should go to the emergency vet. I cannot take him to the regular vet until 5pm tomorrow. Thoughts?

I fear that we may be back to the drawing board with finding a cheap canned kitty food.

We have been feeding friskies classic pate for the last year or so, maybe even longer. We typically get it from walmart but when my husband went today, they had no friskies on the shelf! He ended up picking up "Special Kitty" because it seemed to be a comparable product. I have no idea and information appears to be limited.

We have 5 kitties and a lot of the other grain free options are way to expensive for us to afford at this point. Is special kitty ok or can any one point me in the direction of a cheaper alternative?

We recently had to switch our dry food that we supplement with because proplan selects disappeared/changed formula which doesn't work for us.

Food & Nutrition > Kitty food discontinued

Thank you everyone for your suggestions! We will look into the foods mentioned. We have given some foods with chicken and some with beef and noticed some negative side effects. We aren't 100% sure there is an allergy to chicken seeing how we fed chicken and beef within days of one another.

We do feed about 90% wet and provide dry crunchies as a treat! Two of our others have had urine blockages in the past and we've stuck to the wet seeing how it seems to help.

Hello!
We went to petsmart to pick up kitty food and learned that it was discontinued. We are currently feeding Pro Plan Selects Salmon and Rice. We are looking at other options and we are unsure what is the next best choice. We have on cat that has allergies, possibly two. We are looking for a grain free diet and something without chicken/beef. We feed wet (grain free) and supplement with dry. We are looking at BLUE basics limited ingredients and Hill's ideal Balance. Any thoughts or suggestions?
