  • RSPCA Seeks to Trace Owners of Cats Dumped on Canal Towpath in Derbyshire
    01 October 2022

    The post RSPCA Seeks to Trace Owners of Cats Dumped on Canal Towpath in Derbyshire appeared first on Katzenworld - Welcome to the world of cats!.

    The pets were left in carriers which had been labelled with their ages

     

    The RSPCA is appealing for information after two cats were found abandoned by a canal in Derbyshire.

    The felines were found in separate pet carriers placed on the towpath of the Trent and Mersey Canal near to Chellaston last Friday (September 9).

    The ages of the female cats, who are called Puss Puss and Mittens (pictured), were written on both carriers. Puss Puss, a black cat, is four years and four months old according to her carrier and Mittens, who has a dark/tortoise shell coloured coat, is one year and three months old.

    They were found by a member of the public who took them to a local vets, where they were both given a clean bill of health. Both cats are now in the care of the RSPCA.

    RSPCA inspector Ann Bennett is investigating their abandonment and says a check on Puss Puss’ microchip failed to locate her owner, while Mittens was not microchipped.

    “It’s a bit strange as one of the cats was microchipped to an address only 20 minutes from where they were found, but the details were either out of date or no-one was prepared to explain how these young cats were dumped so callously along a canal towpath,” said the inspector.

    “Fortunately they’d been found by a member of the public walking nearby. Both cats are quite distinctive; Puss Puss was wearing a red collar, while the other cat’s is pink with her name, Mittens, inscribed on it.”

    The cats were found at around 10am near to Bridge No 13, which is close to the Bonnie Prince roundabout on the A50. It is likely they were left at the canalside for only a short period of time.

     

    “The woman who found them didn’t think they were there the day before and she walks that route every day,” added the inspector.

    “The older cat is very vocal and that is what alerted her in the first place. The tortoise shell coloured cat (Mittens) is a bit nervous. But they are very nice cats and it is a mystery why they were dumped in that location.

    “We’d like to hear from anyone who knows anything about how they came to be left there.”

    The RSPCA advises anyone struggling to look after their pets to make contact with the many reputable animal welfare charities who can offer help and advice before considering taking such drastic action. You can find information on the RSPCA’s website.

    The animal charity is concerned more animals are being given up and abandoned this year because of rising living costs, as well as the huge rise in pet ownership during the pandemic.

    From January to July 2021 there were 18,375 abandonment reports compared to 22,908 in the first seven months of this year, which is a rise of 24 per cent.

    The RSPCA released the stark figures as part of its Cancel Out Cruelty summer campaign which aims to raise funds to keep its rescue teams on the frontline saving animals in desperate need of help as well as raise awareness about how we can all work together to stop cruelty for good.

    Anyone with information about the abandoned cats at Chellaston is asked to ring the RSPCA appeal line number on 0300 123 8018.

    To help the RSPCA continue rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming animals in desperate need of care please visit our website or call our donation line on 0300 123 8181.

  • Adopting a Turkish Van
    01 October 2022

    Many travelers long to bring home a souvenir from a memorable vacation—but in 1955 two British women traveling in Turkey brought home some local kittens. These cats went on to be the foundation cats for the Turkish Van cat breed. The women imported two more Van cats a few years later and within a decade …

    Caturday Art

    Today’s art was created from a followup photo to Kizmet’s photo on the Wordless Wednesday post, “Where’s Kizmet?”.

     

     

    I used the Arcoiris effect from Painnt, which turned Kizmet into a tabby cat. It makes me wonder if she has some camouflaged tabby stripes in her fur. To that I added the Flux filter from piZap at 100 percent. The frame is from the favpng app.

    I did make a puzzle for all our jigsaw fans.

    Sunday Selfie Reminder

    Once again I’ll be spending my Caturday trying to convince one of the Kitties Blue to snap a selfie. As it will be raining all day due to the remnants of Ian, everybody will be in the house. Hopefully that will help me corner one of the nine. Most of you don’t seem as uncooperative when it comes to snapping a photo of yourself, so I have my fingers crossed that you will take a selfie and join our hop. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow.

  • Mo [6] - October 01, 2022
    01 October 2022

    Mo [6]
    Kit says: Mo is a male Tabby (exact breed, I don't know). He is happily living with me and my wife in Hong Kong.

    A kitten was found wandering in the garden of a secondary school that is located very close to where I live. The kitten was picked up by my colleague and since she knew I lived close by, she called me whether I can look after the kitten for her, I gladly accepted. It was from then on that this new kitten had been living with me ever since.

    The name Mo derived from the transliteration meaning "fur" in Chinese. This name was given by my wife because she thought the names that I had created sounded awful.

  • Who are the Cat Writers’ Association? STACY LEBARON
    01 October 2022

    Today’s guest on Who are the Cat Writers’ Association is Stacy LeBaron, a podcaster who has dedicated her work to helping cats.

    Tell us a bit about your writing/blogging/podcasting. (Is “podcasting” a word?)

    I am the “Head Cat” at the Community Cats Podcast. We started in 2016 with a show that was released 5 days a week. Since then, we have released almost 500 shows and had over 300,000 downloads. In addition to the podcast, we have launched 26 annual events including the Online Cat Conference, Online Kitten Conference, United Spay Alliance Conference and several one day events, Online Behavior Day and Online Feline Leukemia Day. We have a bi-weekly blog that currently features the work of many guest bloggers, but I have written several posts, and one of my favorites is about the Community Cat Pyramid. The goal of the Community Cats Podcast is to help folks “Turn their passion for Cats in Action.”

    How do cats inspire your creativity?

    I believe that we connect with cats in so many different ways, and we spend our lives trying to “hear” them. As a dreamer and optimist, I want to do what I can to make every community a humane place for cats. My background in Urban Studies and Non-Profit Management helps me to think outside of the box to problem-solve so that we can elevate the quality of life for cats.

    What do you enjoy about of belonging to the CWA?

    I will be honest, and for quite a while I didn’t think a podcaster could be a member; then I was introduced to CWA by Mary Tan of Whisker Media. I enjoy the online networking amongst the members. The team at the Community Cats Podcast is very excited to win five awards from the CWA. One of the awards was for our “Stay Feral” t-shirt design.

    Now for some completely arbitrary questions. 

    1. Did you grow up with cats?

    Yes.

    1. What is your earliest memory of being around cats?

    We had a grumpy cat, Duncan, growing up. She taught me very early on about the needs of personal space and cats. She lived to be 20 years old and would only let me pet her head.

    1. What crosses your mind when someone tells you they don’t like cats?

    It isn’t a question of like or dislike, but more understanding them and how varied the personalities of cats can be. It also makes me wonder if folks sometimes think that cats are like small dogs (and they aren’t).

    1. Tell us a true cat story.

    Nala is a cat that I met in 1996. This was early on in my tenure with the Merrimack River Feline Rescue Society. I was in charge of operations, and we took Nala in with her kittens and placed them in foster care. One of our trappers found some small kittens, and Nala adopted them and treated them like they were her own. Once the kittens were of age (8 weeks or 2 lbs) they went to the veterinarian to get tested and spayed or neutered. The orphan kittens tested positive for Feline Leukemia and the veterinarian immediately euthanized them. The foster home arrived at the end of the day to pick up the kittens, found out this information, and was understandably devastated. She immediately called me to say we needed a different plan.

    Nala and her kittens all appeared healthy to me, but they tested positive. Thus began the journey in 1996 to change our protocols to always adopt out healthy cats with Feline Leukemia. Nala was my first FeLV+ adoption.

    Nala was adopted by a family that had a seven year old girl who bonded right away with her. I asked the girl’s mother why she was okay knowing that Nala’s life may be shortened due to FeLV. The mother said it is the connection that is most important, and that we all need to learn about how to handle the death of a loved one. I almost started crying then and there…

    1. Does cat love run in your family?

    Yes!  My daughter Rachel has a wonderful Maine Coon kitty, Maggie. We just drove from Chicago to Providence in July with Maggie, and she was a star traveler. My niece Hannah has an “adventure cat”, Lily, who has her own Instagram page.

    1. Have you taken a cat first aid course?

    Yes, with Arden Moore- it was fantastic. I did it with my daughter and niece virtually.

    1. “Adopt, Foster, Volunteer, Donate, Educate” is a common slogan for animal rescue. What do you like to do?

    “Turn my passion for cats into Action.”

    Please give us the names and short descriptions of your cats.

    I don’t have any cats at this time.  I used to have quite a few. My last cat, Hooch, passed away in April of 2020.

  • Cat Cat Caturday
    01 October 2022

    It’s been a crazy week, between having workers in the house and computer problems, so I only got to go outside once. My human grabbed her camera and a bag of treats and I did some poses for her.

    In addition to this being a nice photo of me, can you tell that I’m looking at something?

    Yep, he was back! Again.

    My human left him a couple of treats. As you can see, he backed up and watched from a distance. You can see his feet on the left side of the photo. But he was right back the moment my human stepped away from the wall.

    Since he was watching us, my human decided to do a training session with me. She also had my bell, so she pulled it out and had me ring it a bunch of times.

    I also practiced my high fives. I can only imagine what he was thinking of all this. It’s like the opposite of his life.

    After a while, my human and I decided to walk over to the back patio. And guess what?

    That’s right — he followed!

    And we had a surprise. His shy sister showed up for a couple of moments! Nobody’s getting that close to us, though.

  • Is Feliway Safe for Cats and Kittens? | Do vets recommend Feliway for cats?
    01 October 2022

    For cats, new experiences and relationships can be distressing. You know how sensitive your cat may be to change if you’ve ever moved house, gone to the vet, or introduced your cat to a new family member (furry or not).

    Cats’ inherent instincts are deeply ingrained in them; they are territorial and want to be alone. These innate inclinations have been disrupted by modern existence.

    It’s no surprise that many people suffer from anxiety or stress in today’s world, balancing work, family, pets, and hobbies. But what about our felines? Do they get stressed out, and might Feliway pheromones help? We’ve looked at what we know about this well-known cure.

    Feliway has been offered in pet stores, veterinarian offices, and online sellers. You may be aware that it has something to do with cat behavior, but you may not be aware of much else. Feliway is essentially a formulated cat pheromone product, which may surprise you.

    So, how can you keep your cat quiet and avoid unnecessary stress? Feliway.

    What Is Feliway?

    Feliway is a product that calms and reassures cats and kittens and reduces stress behaviors, including urine spraying, scratching, fighting, and hiding.

    It’s available as a spray bottle or a plug-in diffuser.

    Feliway for cats mimics the natural pheromones emitted by a mother cat to soothe her kittens, and it’s the same material that cats scratch your leg or furniture.

    When they use this chemical to identify their area, they indicate it is safe. Feliway is a synthetic version of this that signals to your cat that they are in a secure area when they smell it.

    Pheromones are scent compounds created by glands throughout your cat’s body that send messages to themselves and other cats. These compounds are ‘understood’ by all cats.

    Pheromones play a crucial role in cat communication with other cats and themselves. They can be used as warnings to indicate areas where they have been stressed or afraid, territory markings, or identify encounters with other cats. They can also represent security and ‘happy places.’ And they’re interested in socializing and getting to know other pets, humans, and their surroundings. Mother cats also make these to aid in the bonding of their kittens.

    Feliway uses pheromones linked with safety and comfort to send soothing messages to your cat. As a result, they can lower anxiety and stress-related behaviors. Feliway is not a medicine because pheromones are a natural aspect of cat communication. As a result, it has no adverse side effects and cannot be overdosed.

    Is Feliway safe for cats?

    Feliway is a synthetic counterpart of a natural pheromone secreted by cats and is usually considered harmless. Despite being a manufactured molecule, it has the same molecular structure as natural feline facial pheromones. Feliway products are synthetic versions of natural pheromones generated by cats, deemed harmless.

    Synthetic pheromones are applied to your cat’s environment, such as her favorite rooms and areas. Your cat should not eat or lick them because it could harm their health. 

    Feliway sprays are intended for use in specific places, such as where the cat is marking. If your cat is nearby, do not spray; wait for the spray to dry before allowing your cat in.

    The paraffin-based mineral oils used in Feliway diffuser refills are designed to be spread through the air to entire rooms or locations.

    Is Feliway poisonous to humans?

    Pheromones are species-specific, and thus they do not affect humans or other domestic pets. However, if ingested inadvertently, it could be hazardous. Some persons allergic to paraffin may experience headaches or allergic responses when using a Feliway diffuser.

    Though Feliway itself does not affect humans, its shape and application may. If not handled appropriately, Feliway products in the form of plug-in diffusers might cause problems. Alcohol-containing Feliway sprays are not safe to inhale directly by humans, and you should be safe as long as you are cautious and follow the instructions.

    What could be causing my cat’s stress?

    The cat is a creature of habit who prefers a consistent environment and routine. As a result, they are prone to stress at home and on the go.

    Anxiety in cats can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

    • Holiday celebrations of any type, including fireworks
    • There’s a new pet in the house.
    • In the neighborhood, there’s a new cat or dog.
    • In the home, you can decorate or do some DIY.
    • Any unique individuals in the house or a new infant
    • Veterinary visits while traveling
    • Staying at a cattery

    This isn’t even a complete list! Anxiety affects particular cats more than others. However, anticipating what might irritate your cat can help minimize interruption to their habits and comforts.

    Signs of stress in cats

    Cats can be pretty subtle about their dissatisfaction – or they can be very vocal about it!

    Spraying urine in problematic areas, scratching at furniture, stairs, and walls, grooming themselves to the point of bald patches, fighting with other pets in the house, or becoming cranky with their owners are all stress indicators.

    More subtle indicators of anxiety in your cat include going off their food a little (or, conversely, eating more! ), hiding more and engaging with their owners less, and being less active than usual.

    You are the most excellent judge of your cat: what is typical for one cat may be alarming for another. Consult a veterinarian if you have concerns about your cat’s health or behavior.

    When should I use Feliway?

    Feliway is a versatile product that can be utilized in various situations. For ongoing stressors in the home, like building work, it can be used consistently throughout your entire home via a diffuser. Using a spray or diffuser can also be helpful for specific events such as a vet visit or festive occasions like fireworks nights.

    Feliway Friends is a range of pheromones that help cats connect constructively with one another and can be used as a diffuser in a home with feline tenants who are at odds.

    Feliscratch is a product that contains pheromones that are utilized in territory marking and is supposed to keep your cat from scratching in places he doesn’t want to cross, such as furniture. Instead, please send them to a scratching post, a more natural solution for this highly natural behavior.

    Is Feliway harmful to cats?

    Feliway is generally considered safe since it is a synthetic version of a natural pheromone secreted by cats. Even though it is a synthetic substance, its chemical structure is precisely the same as natural feline facial pheromones.

    While synthetic feline facial pheromones are generally considered safe, every cat is different, so you should constantly monitor them for adverse reactions. In some cases, feline facial pheromones won’t affect a cat. Other cats might see the pheromone as a challenge to their territory, leading them to spray or mark the source of the scent.

    FELIWAY isn’t a sedative and doesn’t have any systemic effects. This drug has no known adverse effects or cautions, and there isn’t any danger involved. The cat will not scratch or spray the region where the cat’s face pheromone is detected.

    Does Feliway have side effects?

    Feliway has a very tiny chance of making a cat sick. Increased grooming and a greater interest in food are the only significant behavioral changes.

    Overfeeding and excessive grooming may occur when a cat is exposed to feline face pheromones. Overeating has a variety of health consequences, ranging from digestive issues to obesity-related diseases. None of these issues should cause concern if you properly portion your cat’s meals.

    The increased grooming in cats exposed to feline face pheromones may also cause issues. A cat grooms and licks itself more frequently and is significantly more prone to hairball problems. Brushing and bathing your cat can help alleviate this problem by removing loose hairs before they become eaten by your cat.

    Although the adverse effects of cat pheromone collars are essentially the same as those of aerosol pheromones, a few minor difficulties may arise when using a collar.

    A cat chewing up the collar and ingesting the fragments is something to be aware of. Some cats may find the pheromones so appealing that they may nibble on a collar.

    Do vets recommend Feliway for cats?

    Numerous clinical trials published in respectable scientific publications or presented at international conferences have demonstrated the efficacy of FELIWAY.

    After using FELIWAY, recommended by veterinarians, millions of cat owners across the world have observed a significant difference in their cats: they are more comfortable, quit peeing, scratching, or hiding, spend more time with them, live in harmony with other cats, and adapt better with changes in their household.

    Can Feliway make cats more aggressive?

    The pheromone in Feliway establishes familiarity and security in the cat’s environment; Feliway can help reduce stress and aggression in multicat households.

    But in some cases, Feliway can cause increased aggression and spray in particular cats, including spraying directly on the diffuser. When it’s gone, everything goes back to normal.

    Cat pheromones: what are they?

    Pheromones are species-specific molecules produced by the smell glands found on a cat’s face, chin, lower ears, forehead, cheeks, and mouth. Scent glands can also be found in their paw pads, around their nipples in female cats, and in their urine. Because of the action of pheromones, she has a favorite scratching post or a best friend from the neighborhood.

    The following are some of the ways cats transfer or exchange their pheromone message:

    • They scratch their heads on various items around the house.
    • Head-to-head contact with you or other cats
    • They rub and roll their bodies against items or surfaces.
    • Objects are scratched and clawed at.
    • Their urine is used to mark specific regions.
    • The first three can be considered cute, while the final two are potentially harmful activities you should avoid.

    Diffusers, sprays, wipes, and collars are just some of the pheromone items available, and they are non-addictive and can be used at home.

    When do we use Feliway?

    Feliway is a versatile product that can be utilized in various situations. For ongoing stressors in the home, like building work, it can be used consistently throughout your entire home via a diffuser. Using a spray or diffuser can also be helpful for specific events such as a vet visit or festive occasions like fireworks nights.

    Feliway Friends is a range of pheromones that help cats connect constructively with one another and can be used as a diffuser in a home with feline tenants who are at odds.

    Feliscratch is a product that contains pheromones that are utilized in territory marking and is supposed to keep your cat from scratching in places he doesn’t want to cross, such as furniture.

    A single drug like Feliway is unlikely to solve all behavioral problems, as they are usually complex. Additional therapies may be required depending on the severity of symptoms and the source of the anxiety. 

    Providing safe zones’ for your cat, ensuring their food and drink are in a neutral place, and giving plenty of litter trays in private areas are all possible environmental modifications. Your veterinarian may recommend more particular measures for your cat’s situation.

    Does Feliway make Cats Sleepy? 

    Feline face pheromones have a slightly soothing effect on cats but are not sedatives. In the presence of Feliway, a cat will become more relaxed, but it will not knock them out.

    Identify the root cause of the problem

    Determining the source of your cat’s stress would be the most effective way to resolve this issue.

     Cats may leave the box for various reasons, including a dislike of the litter, the box being too unclean, or simply being unable to go in because the sides are too high for their arthritic hips. Your veterinarian can discuss your litter box setup with you and assist you in troubleshooting any adjustments you might make.

    Cats appreciate getting off the floor, and it’s why they constantly jump on counters and tables. As a result, giving vertical surfaces,’ such as cat trees, cat shelves, and other similar items, can help reduce counter jumping while also providing additional resources in the home.

    If Feliway isn’t giving you the desired results, talk to your veterinarian about what you can add to the mix. Providing another litter box or relocating a cat scratcher to a more stable and accessible area might sometimes be enough to resolve a behavioral issue. Your veterinarian is available to assist you and your cat in achieving a stress-free lifestyle.

    What types of Feliway products and how should they be used?

    Feliway products come in various shapes and sizes, each with its own instructions.

    Feliway Classic Diffuser is a good choice if your cat has to hide, scratching, spray, or have urine marking issues.

    With the help of feline appeasing hormones, Feliway Friends/Multicat is the ideal type to reduce conflict in multicat households.

    Feliway’s FeliScratch is suggested to prevent unwanted scratching.

    The Feliway Classic Spray is ideal for usage before traveling, during vet visits, or relocating. It can also help cats cope with stressful situations such as thunderstorms, fireworks, or loud parties and holidays.

    Can I use Feliway on a kitten that is still young?

    Yes. Anyone of any age can use Feliway. Kittens can detect pheromones in their surroundings, and they respond accordingly.

    How long should we use Feliway?

    It depends on the type of Feliway you use and how much you use it. For the majority of instances, a month is the minimum required period. However, permanent use may be preferable in rare cases, such as multicat households or recurrent idiopathic cystitis.

    Feliway contains which type of pheromone?

    Feliway emits a pheromone, a replica of the familiarisation face pheromone that cats naturally emit by rubbing their cheek on an object or humans when they are at peace in their surroundings.

    Will Feliway impact the humans and other animals in my house?

    No, because pheromones are species-specific, Feliway Feline pheromone will only impact cats and not harm humans or other pets.

    What kinds of behavioral issues would Feliway not assist with?

    Feliway will have no effect if the unwanted behavior is unconnected to stress, such as competition or fights between cats due to the lack of simple access, such as the box for each cat or some environmental alterations.
    It’s usually a good idea to consult a veterinarian first to rule out any medical conditions causing the undesired behavior.

    How long will it take for the cat to respond? What is the duration of the effect?

    Feliway Spray has been shown to have a near-instantaneous impact that lasts 4 to 5 hours. After this time has passed, reapply Feliway Spray as needed, depending on the situation.
    Let the sprayed object dry for at least 15 minutes before bringing the cat to the area to allow the alcoholic solvent to evaporate.

    Is Feliway safe to use in the car to help with motion sickness?

    Feliway spray treats stress-related symptoms such as nausea and vomiting during traveling. Compared to cats exposed to a placebo spray, Feliway spray has been clinically proven to significantly improve stress-related behaviors such as vomiting, urine, defecation, meowing, agitation, and salivation.
    It is recommended that the cat not eat for at least 6 hours before travel to avoid nausea and vomiting, but that water should not be limited before a trip.

    Conclusion

    Feliway products help cats cope with stress and anxiety while preventing tension and aggression. Each Feliway product has a unique purpose or can be used in combination to treat specific symptoms such as scratching and aggression in multiple cats in the home. While the level of effectiveness may vary, if the tension and symptoms linger after a month of use, you should seek medical counsel from your veterinarian.

  • Are Greenies Good for Cats? Can I give it my cat everyday?
    30 September 2022

    Greenies were founded in 1996. It was inspired by a story of a cute puppy with stinky breath, namely Ivan. Ivan’s owners worked with a great veterinary nutritionist and other experts to resolve Ivan’s oral health issue. That is when they created the first ever Greenies Canine Dental Chew. 

    Since then, the company has been expanding its business globally by producing various best cat treats and chews. Greenies dental for cats are designed in such a way that has a crunchy texture to scrape plaque and tartar off cats’ teeth. It also gives a freshness to your cat’s breath. Greenies are among the few brands to receive the Registered Seal of the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC). 

    The main goal of Greenies is to overcome the oral health issues that dogs and cats face. Pets are fed various items from veg to non-veg, which leaves a bad breath. You can not force your pets to brush their teeth, obviously. Greenies help remove the stinky breath from your pets’ mouths and give them oral freshness. Oral hygiene is necessary even for pets to maintain good health. It is not just about bad breath. Keeping good oral health is essential; otherwise, cats can catch several diseases.

    Feline Greenies has three product lines. The first one is Dental Treats, it is the most popular product among all. It has many flavors, like chicken, salmon, and catnip. These treats have a crunchy texture that helps scrape out your cat’s teeth to keep them clean. Another one is the SmartBites. It also has a crunchy texture but with a soft center. And the third one is the Pill Pockets, designed to give your cat their medication. All the feline greenies are made with the aspects of cats’ health, from the skin to oral health.

    Can I give my cat Greenies every day?

    Greenies are one of the most popular pet food brands. It is highly recommended by veterinarians for cats. It sells around 300 million treats globally each year. Isn’t it enough to prove that greenies are healthy for cats and you can give them to your cat daily?

    The oven-roasted chicken flavored treat by Greenies is the most popular cat treat. It alone has over 2300 positive customer reviews on Chewy and 3500 on Amazon. Feline Greenies are rated around 4.5/5 stars on average.

    Although there was so much negativity about Greenies in the year 2020. People started mentioning it as the worst cat treat ever. It was said that the treat does not have any healthy ingredients and does not help clean teeth. But as per the recent unbiased reports, reviews and feedback, Greenies is represented as a healthy and safe treat for cats. Pet owners should cross-check the products as per their cat’s medical history because cat products are made by the company on a general basis, not on a customized basis for each cat. 

    Customers have noticed quite impressive results in their cats’ teeth and breath. It is not just healthy but flavorful, so cats can enjoy their treats while maintaining good oral health. Although everything has two faces, the Greenies also has some negative reviews but not enough to beat the positive feedback.

    Feline Greenies treats are rich in vitamins and minerals that benefit the whole body of cats. These treats are low in calories and help in maintaining oral hygiene. All the ingredients are natural and organic. There is no harm in giving greenies to your cats every day. It is like brushing as well as eating healthy daily.

    In the everyday world, our teeth get damaged by eating too many treats. But Greenies has turned the tables by creating treats that help prevent bad teeth and cats’ breath. 

    Side effects of Greenies

    Feline Greenies are good for cats, but excessive amounts of anything will always be harmful. One should always keep a count of how many treats you are giving to your cat in a day. Greenies treats can be given to cats daily, but not too much. Some cats might be allergic to any excessive ingredient. 

    In case of too many greenies treats in a day, cats can experience various gastrointestinal problems such as vomiting or diarrhea. It can also cause intestinal blockage sometimes. This was why feline greenies got so much hatred two years back, but it was not greenies’ fault. Greenies have done everything good to produce healthy and safe treats for cats. But if cat owners will not pay attention to precautions and preventions while feeding treats to their cats, then it is not on the company.

    Greenies may have side effects, but it is not because the company has made unhealthy treats. The reasons for side effects may be the excessive feeding of goodies, if the cat is already allergic to something present in the treat, at what time, and how many times a treat has been given to cats in a day. Cat owners should always look out for everything while feeding anything to their cats and should always feed in a limited amount to avoid any health problems.

    Are Feline Greenies Treats Recalled or Discontinued in the Past?

    Greenies have never had a recall in the past. Greenies had to go through some controversies way back in 2006 and 2015. Some pet owners filed a report against Greenies that their dogs died after eating greenies treats. 

    A class-action lawsuit was filed but later dismissed in 2007. The terms of the dismissal were confidential. Greenies were asked to cross-check whether the dogs properly chewed the treat before ingesting it or not because chewing is essential. The cases were settled down later on. 

    Certain rumors were still rolling among the people that Greenies treats are not safe for pets and no one should ever give them to pets. In 2013, Greenies responded to rumors that their products had been recalled with the following statement:

    “There has been no recall of any Greenies products. We put pets first, and safety is our number one concern. The two important factors in Greenies’ safety are solubility and digestibility, which are both rigorously tested. After reformulation in 2006, Greenies Dental Chews were found to be both soluble and digestible. When in contact with canine saliva, they begin to liquefy immediately and are 94% soluble. They are also 92.6% digestible.”

    Apart from that, it may be possible that some of the flavors of greenie treats are discontinued. The discontinuation and its reasons are not confirmed yet. The likely reason for discontinuation can be the low sales of particular tastes. Besides that, the company is going on good so far. People always try to bring down the best by spreading negativity about it. This is what keeps happening to Greenies. We have gone through recent reviews and feedback of people feeding greenies treats to their cats, and they have everything excellent to say about it. No problem or issue has been reported till now after those two cases. Eventually, the slate of Greenies is Clean.

    Unfortunately, Inaba Churu has been recalled recently, and now it is unavailable in the market. People could not find treats for their pets on the store shelves. The reason for the recall is not being confirmed. There is no information about the Inaba Churu recall, but it may be because of the salmonella toxicity. Many pet foods are recalled because of the presence of salmonella in them, and Inaba Churu is one of them.

    Is Churu Healthy for Cats?

    Churu is made by keeping cats’ health in mind. Churu is excellent in taste, squeezable, low-calorie, and lickable treats. It is high in moisture, which is good for cats’ urinary tract. It is one of the best treats you can feed your cats. It is not just tasty but healthy too.

By concealing pills inside the tube, you can use Churu Diet to assist with medicine delivery. The high moisture level will also be advantageous to your cat!

    There are various ways in which Churu can be used

    APPETITE MOTIVATOR- cats do not eat routinely, which can cause several health issues. The Churu diet makes the cats eat again while delivering moisture and low-calorie content.

    HYDRATION- intake of sufficient fluid helps the kidney to remove toxins, prevent urinary issues and helps organs to function correctly. Churu is perfect for it as it hydrates the cats with 93% moisture content. This high moisture can not be found in any other high-quality pet food.

    FOOD TOPPER- whenever your cat is not eating food that is needed to be eaten by them, use churu as a topping. The flavorful taste and smell of churu can not be resisted by any cat. Cats can eat their healthy meal because of the tasty churu on it.

    Distraction – When you take your cat for a grooming session or visit a pet, your cats become anxious and start scratching most of the time. This is when you can use Churu as a distraction. Distract your cat with a tube of churu and let the other work be done, like nail trimming, brushing, or checkups.

    TRAINING- everyone has some motivation to do something. From studying to doing a job, every single thing is achieved because of the motivation behind it. You learn something new because you are motivated to learn that. Pets do the same thing. Whenever you train your cat, keep churu as a reward. Your cat will willingly learn and follow you to get that delicious reward.

    Why do cats like Churu so much?

    Churu is flavorful and nutritious. Cats like churu very much as it smells incredible. Cat owners can also use churu as a catalyst to feed medicine to their cats. Pets are very braggart in nature when it comes to taking medicine. They do not take medicines easily. Churu is an easy way to do that. And you can just hide the pills in the tube, and cats will willingly take them while enjoying their favorite treat.

    These lickable cat snacks are created from farm-raised chicken or wild tuna, which are 100% pure and natural. Churu Purées, which come in nine delicious flavors, are rich in the moisture that cats need for good health. To feed these grain-free, preservative-free treats by hand, break open a tube and squeeze it. They can also be used as a delightful topping on moist or dry foods, or you can pour them into a dish.

    Churu is high in moisture, keeping cats hydrated and their urinary tract clean. Churu has so many flavors and is a lickable treat loved by every cat. Inaba Churu has put so many thoughts while producing this particular cat treat. Cats are picky and do not eat anything that is fed to them. So if they are enjoying churu, that means it was meant to be liked by them.

    Ingredients that go into Inaba Churu

    As far as we know, Inaba Churu is undoubtedly made just for cats and their enjoyment and to keep them healthy. All the ingredients that go into the churu are nutritious, organic, and flavorful. There is nothing allergic in that apart from the rare condition of salmonella presence (which is recalled as soon as possible to avoid people buying it). Let us have a look at what exactly goes into our cats’ favorite treats-

    Water, Chicken, Tapioca Starch, Natural Flavors, Natural Scallop Flavor, Guar Gum, Vitamin E Supplement, Taurine, Green Tea Extract.

    Churu tubes are made with complete measurement and balance of healthy and tasty ingredients. Sometimes, mistakes happen in production, resulting in some toxicity in the food. But as soon as the company knows about the fault, it recalls the food immediately from the market as it is the company’s responsibility to deliver the promised goods to the customers.

    PetArmor for Cats Reviews

    PetArmer produces many products with different formulations for both cats and dogs. They have regular PetArmor and more expensive PetArmor Plus” brands of flea treatments. This is a standard flea drop: the anti-flea serum is contained in a small tube and is easy to use.

    Its active ingredients will leach through the top layer of your cat’s skin and kill the parasitic worms, then work to prevent the new parasites from jumping onto your cat. This product has a similar look and feels to the name-brand products and a much lower price tag. You can give your dog the same shield against fleas you’d get with a big-name product, but you’ll pay significantly less.

    If we see, this product also has a lot of beauty, but it also has many drawbacks which cannot be ignored. Firstly it is low cost, and unfortunately, it kills fewer fleas and not all fleas. Many users report that the fleas are killed initially but return to the pile before the subsequent prescribed treatment. While this may work for some, many popular review outlets have an overall customer satisfaction level of around 50-60%, which matches our research. We would like to share 4 out of 5 stars because it is ineffective for every cat.

    Pros And Cons

    • Reports show that the product does not spread to your pet’s body after application resulting in incomplete flea defense.
    How Does PetArmor Work?

    As a topical product, PetArmor is absorbed through your cat’s skin, where it is distributed under the skin and stored in the hair follicles and skin oils. This product does not circulate through the bloodstream. Released gradually over 30 days, PetArmor protects your pet from external parasites for the duration.

    How to use PetArmor for cats?

It is available for purchase in the following weight brackets – Small 5-22 lbs, Medium 23-44 lbs, Large 45-88 lbs, and X-Large 89-132 lbs. If you accidentally wean your dog, it may reduce its effectiveness, which could lead to the failure of the product.

    To apply PetArmor Plus, you need to open the pipette as directed on the product packaging, separate the fur on the back of your cat’s neck, and apply all the liquid ingredients.

    Conclusion

    PetArmor has gained traction in the marketplace thanks to its “store-brand”- marketing strategy. The packaging claims the solution uses the same active ingredient as Frontline Plus, the top name-brand competitor, and at a price less than what you’d pay for one of the top contenders on the market.

    Unfortunately, PetArmor removes vital ingredients to effectively disrupt the flea life cycle to reach that low price point with its cheapest product. If you want that capability, you’ll have to pick up the more expensive variety, the PetArmor Plus.

When your furry friend achieves a favorable response, you can decrease the number of Cosequin soft chews/tablets/capsules you give to your cat daily. Watch your feline’s movement and attitude to ensure he feels comfortable as you decrease the administration. If your pet is not as comfortable, increase the number of soft chews/tablets/capsules to the previous level, observe your cat for a few weeks, then try lowering again. Many cats can be maintained on a low number of soft chews, chewable tablets, or sprinkle capsules long-term.

    Thundershirt History

    The history of Thundershirt is extensive, but we will share it with short information. 50 years old Pill Blizzard who worked in product development at Ford as an Internet entrepreneur and in real estate development, Durham. He decided to turn his makeshift swaddle into a business. In 2008, he came up with the idea to help his dog, Dosi, deal with the thunderstorms which are so common in the South.

    He had thought about this idea and decided to give it a year. He approached a couple of friends who were entrepreneurs. When he first proposed the business to them, they fell on the floor and laughed at him. They thought he was pranking them. 

    He shared his idea with his wife, and they gave it a year, and this idea worked. Finally, in 2009 Phil Blizzard invented the ThunderShirt and founded Thunderworks, which has grown since its start in 2009 to a multimillion-dollar business today. Thundershirt are clothing designed for dogs and cats, which apply pressure to their torso in the hopes that it creates a calming effect on them.

    ThunderShirt Sourcing And Manufacturing

    It was manufactured in 2009 by Phil Blizzard in Durham, North Carolina, inThunderworks. He produced this wrap for his dog Tosi to get relief from being panicked by storms and fireworks. Thunderworks has grown since 2009 and has sold millions of Thundershirt (which retail for $39.95 and up) and other assorted anti-anxiety products for dogs and cats.

    Forbes estimates annual revenues are above $15 million. The shirts are made from a fabric that is a rayon-polyester blend with spandex to give them a snug fit, and they are manufactured in China.

    Complaints And Customers Reviews

    In these complaints and customer reviews, we will read about the feedback shared by them.

All she did was pace and cry. She laid down and went to sleep when he received the ThunderShirt in just a few minutes. It has helped to calm her down, but she is still trying to get used to her new normal.

    Complaints: While customers have shared positive thoughts, some have opposing views. Because they have good experience with these shirts for their pets. They said they purchased this product for the first time, but a product designed to calm an animal can’t do its job if it has the smell of another animal all over it! Not to mention, they didn’t agree to pay for a used item! The box had clearly been opened before, crunched at least once, and another animal’s fur was visible all over it.

    ThunderShirt For Cats Customers Reviews

    Pros: The Thundershirt is undeniably a hit with many kitty parents, with top marks being:

    Drug-free relief: Not every feline friend needs medication, and a chemical-free solution like the Thundershirt is a big win with many fur families.

    Machine washable: It’s hard to beat the ease of tossing clothes in the wash for cleaning. This is especially handy if your cat is making a mess like superiors.

    Convenience: Rather than waiting for sedation medications or supplements to arrive, the garment provides almost instant relief in many cases. It’s a massive bonus during those unexpected pop-up summer storms or when dealing with a neighbor’s fireworks.

    Cons: While Thundershirt work well for many cats, there are certain downsides you should consider, including: 

    Tricky Fitting: Owners report these running short for their large cats when they select a size, but that is different from the product sizing chart.

    Durability: Some owners have complained that the Thundershirt doesn’t stand up to frequent washings and repeated use. Day-to-day wear and maintenance are definitely at play here, with other pet parents reporting zero aptitudes in this area.

    Not Enough for Severe Anxiety: For felines with severe cases of anxiety, Thundershirt alone may not be enough to provide complete relief. Thundershirt may be used in conjunction with additional strategies in these cases.

    How Does ThunderShirt Work?

    The Thundershirt is a calming wrap you can put on your pet during a stressful situation to help them keep calmer and less anxious. It is completely drug-free, and it does not require any training. Required. It also provides a safe, comprehensive touch that makes many cats feel more secure. It has a patented design that applies gentle, constant pressure around your pet’s torso, which helps them to feel safe and calm. 

    The effect is similar to swaddling an infant or using a weighted blanket for adults. Studies have shown that constant pressure can help reduce an elevated heart rate, which is one of the reasons the ThunderShirt allow cats to feel calmer. 

    It’s unclear if the Thundershirt perform the same function for cats or whether this would be beneficial, but your cat will likely feel some calming effect from contact with his person.

    Will The ThunderShirts Help Your cat?

    While there is nothing clear about it until you try it, the Thundershirt is an excellent option for many cats, including: 

    • People with noise phobias: Fireworks, thunder, rain, and wind are common triggers in cats that can be calmed with compression.
    • Those who hate car rides: If you are traveling to your vet and your pet is not ready for that, then a Thundershirt might be a cozy touch for him.
    • Excessively excitable cats: Felines that bounce off walls at the slightest things can be calmed using compression therapy.
    • Cats with separation anxiety: These cats may rumble or move excessively to settle down when left alone, but compression can give them the relief they need.

    While the shirt works well in many situations, it may not help in others significantly:

    Less agitated cats: If your cat is hyper due to lack of exercise, a cloth is not the solution. A daily walk, play, and brain games can help in these cases.

    Severe cases of anxiety: With some cats, the pressure reaches the point that a cloth alone will not help. These poor felines may chew or paw at walls or cuttings until their bodies ache or bleed.

    For severe cases of anxiety, you should always contact your vet. Over time, stress and anxiety can lead to health issues.

    Conclusion

    While no product is guaranteed to work in every case, the Thundershirt is definitely worth trying if you have an anxious cat.

It also provides an extra touch of calming when your cat needs it most, like during storms, fireworks, or travel. If you’re unsure whether or not compression will work for your cat, you can always try making a DIY Thundershirt first.

    While their social and kind personality makes Bombay an excellent choice for people with children or multiple pets in the household, it is worth noting that these cats are the ringleader and center of attention. 

    Bombay cats’ generally playful yet restrained nature makes them particularly good with children. They also do very well in homes with other cats, as they quickly establish a pecking order within the house and do well in their own space.

    Are Bombay Cats Aggressive?

    The Bombay cats are beautiful cats that look like a panther. They are very sleek and shiny with stunning eyes. Though, they love to be at peace.

Much like the Siamese and Sphynx cat, the Bombay cat needs a significant amount of attention, which, when not met, can come out in aggressive tendencies.

    Q1. Can Bombay cats live alone?

    Ans: These highly social cats hate being left alone for long periods and are likely to become lonely and depressed if left alone for too long.

    Ans: They will seek their owner’s attention and have known to follow their favorite human from room to room. They are specifically good with strangers. You would not find them cats dashing to hide under the bed when company arrives.

    Q7. How can you know if you have a Bombay cat?

    Ans: However, at first glance, Bombay may look like every other black cat. A quick way to tell Bombays apart is that they have entirely black coats(all the way to the roots), and their nose and paw pads are also black. These are signs of Bombay cats.

    Saving Money By Caring for Them 

    Owning a pet or owning a Bombay cat can be expensive, but if you’re careful and know what you’re doing, you can keep your costs manageable.

    Keeping your cat healthy is one of the most significant ways to save money. Feed them the most nutritious food you can afford (and there are cheap foods that are relatively healthy), and make sure to give them plenty of exercise. If you can afford it, even take them to the vet for regular checkups.

    You can also avoid spending a lot of money on toys or other items by simply playing with them. This will not only boost your bank balance, but it will also make your cat happier and better adjusted and help save money.

    If you need to check your cat by a vet, then look for a cat service that offers low-cost services. At great discounts, some places will even have special days to perform rudimentary surgery, such as spaying or neutering.

    You can also avoid spending money by taking care of them, trimming their nails, combing their coats, and brushing their teeth.

    While you are on vacation, you may be able to avoid pet care fees by having a friend or family member take care of your cat.

    Conclusion

    Bombay cats are unique, and you must spend a fair amount of money to care for yourself properly. Bringing one cat home for the first time might not cost you anything, or it could cost you thousands, and taking care of them could be around $100 a month, or it could be multiples thereof. 

    Ultimately, the cost entirely depends on you as you have to decide how much you are willing to spend on their care. You’ll also need to determine if it’s worth spending more on certain things (like food) to potentially save more money.

    We can tell you this, though: No matter what, these cats will be worth every penny, and it depends on their activeness, intelligence, beauty, and on their temperament.

    Hope you will like this article and kindly share it with those who want to know about Bombay cats and their price. It will massively help them.

  • Pet Food Recipes – Hygiene & Food Safety
    17 September 2022

    Whenever we prepare food for our pets it is incredibly important to make sure you avoid making anyone ill. Often the problems arise when cooking, preparing and storing meat. A few basic precautions will ensure everyone stays healthy and happy.

    Today the meat that we prepare and eat is not as fresh as it once was. Animals are often kept intensively in overcrowded conditions. Meat travels for long distances, then sits on supermarket shelves or in the butcher before sale. There are many points during the pathway from paddock to plate where your food can be contaminated with bacteria like Salmonella or E.coli.

    It is estimated that meat contains 1,000-10,000 bacteria per gram and while many dogs and cats can tolerate low numbers of bacteria in their food, it doesn’t take much to tip the balance and a very messy, smelly gastroenteritis to enter the household. No one wants that, so please follow the following safety recommendations when preparing meat for your pets:

    • Make sure you wash your hands thoroughly before and after preparing meat products. Scrub, use soap and clean for at least 20 seconds- don’t forget under those nails!
    • Use a clean chopping board which is used only for meat preparation.
    • Chopping boards, utensils and benches should be thoroughly cleaned before and after food preparation.  A hot dishwasher cycle is ideal, scrubbing or dilute bleach.
    • Only feed your pets meat fit for human consumption.
    • Don’t use utensils for raw foods, then cooked foods without washing first.
    • Avoid using dirty or cracked eggs.
    • Store raw and cooked foods separately.
    • Chicken is more high risk raw (particularly areas that have come into contact with the innards and faeces of the animal), but many vets recommend raw chicken necks or wings for dental health.
    • Food should be cooked to an internal temperature of at least 165°F (you can use a meat thermometer to check).
    • If food is not to be eaten immediately it should stay above 140°F or cooled, covered and placed in the fridge or freezer.
    • When serving food after freezing or refrigeration, it should be reheated until it is steaming and hot all the way through (it can be cooled before serving).
    • Food should be discarded if it has been left out in the temperature ‘danger zone’ between 40-140°F (ie. not in the fridge/freezer) for more than 4 hours.
    • Mince, sausage, whole chicken and eggs should be thoroughly cooked until no pink is seen and the juices run clear.
    • When using the microwave, ensure food is covered to trap the steam and ensure thorough cooking. Also stir and rotate food as microwaves cook very unevenly.
    • Avoid feeding your pet cooked bones or pet meats that contain sulphur preservatives.

    We hope these tips have helped you make your kitchen a safe place for your family and your pets. Home cooking for our pets is extremely rewarding and done properly is healthy and safe. Enjoy, and Bon Appetit!

  • Cat Seeking Attention Outside a Hotel is Ready to Leave the Outdoors Once and for All
    01 October 2022


    A cat who was seeking attention outside a Hampton Inn, was ready to leave the outdoors once and for all.

    Hampton the catCaitie's Foster Fam

    Hampton the cat has used several of his nine lives braving the streets on his own. The long-haired Persian was never meant to live in the outdoors but somehow ended up without a home.

    The scraggly cat meowed at passersby, pleading for help. "He went right up to people for food and pets and clearly just wanted to be saved," Caitie's Foster Fam shared. A few Good Samaritans who were in town visiting, knew they had to intervene.

    They reached out to social media in hopes of getting the cat the medical attention he needed. Claudia, a foster volunteer of Caitie's Foster Fam, saw the post and sprang into action.

    He was found outside a hotel meowing for attentionCaitie's Foster Fam

    "I hopped in my car and drove there in less than 20 minutes. When I first saw Hampton, I was concerned for his health status," Claudia told Love Meow.

    She noticed that his fur was severely matted, and it was pulling on his skin. He was also covered in fleas and dirt, and missing patches of fur.

    Caitie's Foster Fam

    "It looked like someone had attempted to help him out at some point and then stopped halfway through the process (or he likely ran away from them). He was miserable and his skin was very tender and sensitive. On top of all of this, he was very skinny."

    Claudia was able to scoop him up from the parking lot and put him in a cat carrier for transport.

    Caitie's Foster Fam

    Hampton (named after the hotel) was very nervous at first, but by the time they got home, he was put at ease by a sense of familiarity as he stepped into a place that he'd longed for -- a roof over his head with food and comfort.

    "He realized I was here to help, and he really let it sink in that his street life was finally over, especially the moment he realized he has his very own litter box," Claudia shared with Love Meow.

    He settled right into his new abodeCaitie's Foster Fam

    Hampton was over the moon with all the amenities as if he'd been waiting for this moment for a long time. He began to relax and slow-blink at his foster mom as if to show his stamp of approval.

    Caitie's Foster Fam

    Hampton was estimated to be 4-5 years old. After a much-needed spa day, he donned a cute lion cut and seemed happy and relieved for the change.

    Claudia has been by his side every step of the way to ensure that he is doing well and never lacks an ounce of love.

    Caitie's Foster Fam

    After a couple of weeks of healing, his health is back on the right track, and his personality is beaming through.

    Caitie's Foster Fam

    "Hampton has put some weight on. His fur is growing back after getting groomed. He wakes up ready to start his day full of food and naps," Claudia told Love Meow.

    "He is adjusting very well to living with my other animals. He loves stringy toys and naps in front of the window. He loves being held. As soon as you pick him up, he just sits perfectly calm and leans in to some head rubs."

  • Man Finds a Kitten Inside a Bus but Doesn't Know the Kitten is About to Change His Life
    29 September 2022


    A man found a kitten inside a bus but didn't know that the kitten was about to change his life.

    Cal the kittenMateo, mape14 via Reddit

    Around mid September, Mateo from the South of Spain was on his way to home when he heard what sounded like a kitten as he was passing by an auto shop.

    He was able to trace the sound and locate the kitten inside a parked bus nearby. "I managed to find him inside the engine (compartment). I couldn't see too much, but his meows sounded scared," Mateo told Love Meow.

    Mateo rushed to get some cat food and tried to use it to coax the kitten out, but it was to no avail. The tabby was so frightened by all the noises surrounding him that he refused to leave his hideout.

    He was found inside the engine of a busMateo, mape14 via Reddit

    The gentleman left the food by the bus and returned later when things quieted down. He noticed that the food had been partially eaten, and there were adult cats in the area taunting the kitten.

    "I put my gloves on and spent about three hours waiting for him to come out for more food I bought."

    Mateo, mape14 via Reddit

    With lots of patience and treats, Mateo managed to get the kitten to safety. He noticed right away that the tabby had badly infected eyes and was covered in battle scars and wounds.

    "He was shaking and scare-meowing all the way to my house. When we got home, I put him down in my bathroom with a towel, and gave him food, water, and time to get used to the new environment."

    Mateo brought the kitten home, fed him and cleaned him upMateo, mape14 via Reddit

    The tabby was a bit shaken after the ordeal but relieved to have a quiet space to decompress. He slowly warmed up to the presence of his rescuer and was even brave enough to accept a few pets.

    Mateo who goes by mape14 on Reddit, reached out to the Reddit community to seek advice on how to care for the little stray.

    Cal began to warm up to his humanMateo, mape14 via Reddit

    "A lot of people gave me amazing advice. I took him to the vet and they gave him a full checkup and told me everything he was going through and how I could help him."

    When they got home from the vet, Mateo placed the kitten back in his comfy nest, and waited for him to feel comfortable enough to approach him.

    Mateo, mape14 via Reddit

    "I sat next to him, letting him make the first move in order to gain some trust. When he fell asleep next to me, it was the moment he realized he was safe," Mateo told Love Meow.

    "He was shy at first but craved cuddles and care. I gave him as much attention as I could, and provided him with all that I could think of."

    Mateo, mape14 via Reddit

    The tabby started to make good gains, and his confidence rose. His eyes were clearing up and he no longer struggled with fleas.

    Each day, Mateo found himself falling harder for the ginger kitten, whom he had named Cal after a Star Wars character.

    Mateo, mape14 via Reddit

    "He's a very curious, active and naughty boy who loves exploring around my house and getting into hidden places that I didn't know I had," Mateo told Love Meow.

    "I installed a little camera in the room to watch him while I'm at work. He sleeps most of the time until I get home. When I open the front door, he starts meowing until I sit down next to him, and he climbs up onto my lap and falls asleep."

    Mateo, mape14 via Reddit

    "Cal has changed my life. The feeling of hearing his meow the moment I step inside my house fills me with joy that I've never experienced before. He's definitely staying with me forever."

    Mateo, mape14 via Reddit

    Mateo never expected he would rescue a kitten on his way to home, let alone keeping one. Now, he comes home to his best friend Cal greeting him at the door and following him around the house.

  • E. Coli and Cats
    28 September 2022

      


    We hear about E. coli a lot in the news, but it’s usually related to an outbreak caused by food we humans eat making a lot of people sick.  After all, it is the number one cause of urinary tract infections in people.  You may be surprised to know that cats can get sick from E. coli, too.  We know that first-hand after last summer’s outbreak in one of our cat rooms – the one that took Emily and made Lisa so sick that she nearly died.  So, it’s important to know that E. coli is a danger to our pets, too.  We’ll share our experiences with this deadly bacteria later.
     
    The basics are that E. coli (Escherichia coli) is a bacteria that lives in the intestinal tracts of mammals, including humans and cats.  Most of the time they are harmless and don’t cause any problems.  Of the 700 or so types of E. coli that have been identified, most don't cause illness.  However, there are a few that do cause problems, called pathogenic bacteria. 
     
    Most adult cats have no problems with E. coli, but kittens, senior kitties and those with compromised immune systems can get sick when they are exposed to it.  It infects cats when the bacteria moves into a part of the body other than the gastrointestinal tract, or when a cat somehow consumes a pathogenic (harmful) strain of E. coli.  From there it may develop for 3-6 days before symptoms being to appear.
     
    How do grown cats get E. coli?  Gastrointestinal E. coli is usually traced to a cat eating under-cooked or raw foods, which can sometimes be found commercial pet foods.  Outdoor cats who hunt and eat prey, which is raw, have a better chance of getting it.  Urinary tract infections that are E. coli based can come from regular cat grooming, when the bacteria is moved from one area of the body to another through licking.
     
    What E. coli symptoms a cat shows depends on where in the body the bacteria is located and also the basic health of the cat.  Gastrointestinal symptoms include vomiting and diarrhea, which may include some blood.  If it’s in the uterus of an un-spayed female cat, she may experience pyometra.  Even more dangerous, from there E. coli bacteria can easily move into the urinary tract. Cats who are diabetic, have kidney disease or Cushing’s syndrome can make them more prone to urinary problems.  If your female cat gets a urinary tract infection, a test for E. coli is a good idea.  Symptoms of urinary E. coli infection from wagwalking.com include:
    • Frequent urination
    • Urinating outside the litter box
    • Pain while urinating (sometimes indicated by vocalization)
    • Blood in the urine
    • Foul-smelling urine
    • Straining to urinate
    • Tenderness in the abdomen
    • Fever
    We say this a lot and it’s true in this case, too.  As a good cat parent, you should be on the lookout for any of the general symptoms in cats that show something is off with their health and could possibly be related to E. coli.  These are loss of appetite, fever, lethargy, weight loss, dehydration and increased thirst. 
     
    An E. coli infection is an emergency situation so you should immediately call your vet if you suspect it.  In our E. coli outbreak, we learned that you should insist that your vet do an E. coli panel test first thing – before a cat goes on antibiotics.  We weren’t sure what we were fighting at that time, so our vet started the cats on general antibiotics right away.  Had we known it was E. coli at the beginning, we might have been able to save Emily and Lisa would not have nearly died.  Once we did know what it was, we were able to immediately start treating the other cats in the room for E. coli bacteria and they fought it off.
     
    When a vet diagnoses E. coli your cat, they will give your cat the appropriate antibiotic to fight it, as they did for our cats.  Based on your cat’s symptoms, your vet may also prescribe intravenous fluids if your cat is dehydrated and some nutritional support, too.  Because E. coli can return, follow up visits will be necessary.
     
    If you have multiple cats and an E. coli outbreak, you’ll need to take steps to treat their environment, too, because the bacteria can survive for up to 28 days.  Cat-world.com recommends cleaning any common areas, things they sleep on, eat out of and even litter boxes with:
    • Bleach (sodium hypochlorite, calcium hypochlorite or sodium dichloroisocyanurate)
    • F10-Benzalkonium chloride and polyhexanide
    • TriGene-Didecyl dimethyl ammonium chloride, benzalkonium chloride, polyhexanide (biguanide)
    • Trifectant or Virkon-Potassium peroxymonosulfate
    • Ethanol 70%
    Your cat’s health is worth monitoring and being aware of all the time.  E. coli was totally unexpected at BCR since we maintain very strict cleaning and feeding practices.  Our experience with it made us even more aware of how stealthy it is and that we all need to be vigilant.  We’re very thankful that Lisa is the fighter kitty she is and that she’s still with us today.

  • Kitten Shows Up Outside a Home on Her Own and is Determined to Move Indoors That Day
    27 September 2022


    A kitten showed up outside a home on her own and was determined to move indoors that day.

    Nuggie the kittenDetroit Community Cat Rescue

    A stray cream calico wandered to a resident's home and decided to hang out on their porch. She was seen all alone without a mother or siblings in sight.

    The kitten stayed on the porch and had no plans of leaving. When the resident noticed her, the little one placed her paws on the railing as if she wanted to be let in. Worrying about her safety, the resident reached out to Detroit Community Cat Rescue, hoping to get the kitten some help.

    "The caller told us she was the only kitty around, and she was afraid that the kitten would get hit by a car. We were there within the hour," Detroit Community Cat Rescue shared with Love Meow.

    Detroit Community Cat Rescue

    "(The kitten) was smaller than we expected. We decided to take her in. All of the neighbors thanked us for taking her."

    She was lovingly named Nuggie, as she was tiny as a nugget and made mostly of fluff. Nuggie went home with Jennifer, a foster volunteer of the rescue, and turned a new chapter.

    Nuggie is tiny, fierce and very fluffyDetroit Community Cat Rescue

    She was "darling, fragile and fierce" and had such spirit and determination to live and thrive. Nuggie quickly adjusted to the indoor life and never looked back.

    With a comfortable environment, Nuggie could now rest and recuperate and would never go hungry again.

    She quickly adjusted to indoor lifeDetroit Community Cat Rescue

    Nuggie settled into her new space and started using the cat tree, scratching posts, and the litter box. She was content to have a roof over her head, a bountiful supply of food, and doting humans to cater to her whims.

    She was treated for a few health issues including an upper respiratory infection, but she took everything in stride. Nuggie was over the moon to have someone hover over her, making sure that she was loved.

    Detroit Community Cat Rescue

    Once Nuggie was nursed back to health, she was ecstatic to hang out and socialize with feline friends.

    Nuggie has never met a stranger as she goes around the house befriending every kitty she comes across. Despite being so little, she holds her own when she plays. Nuggie is also a love-bug at heart.

    Detroit Community Cat Rescue

    When she met Rosebud, a tortoiseshell foster, it was love at first sight. Nuggie sat beside Rosebud, wrapped her arms around her and insisted on giving her a bath, in perfect Nuggie fashion.

    The former stray has flourished into an adorable indoor cat with so much to offer. She is reveling in her new life and living everyday to the fullest.

    She likes to hang out with other kitties. Here's Nuggie giving Rosebud the tortie a bathDetroit Community Cat Rescue

    Nuggie will be ready to find her forever home in the near future. As for now, she is busy relishing every moment with her foster buddies.

    There is no shortage of zoomies and cuddle-fests in the house.

    She takes bathing very seriouslyDetroit Community Cat Rescue

    Nuggie walked up to the porch that day and was determined to change her life. She did just that.

  • Happy Tail: Django and Quentin
    27 September 2022

    Onyx and Sheldon have always enjoyed cats’ company and shared the love of Onyx’s two cats until their passing. Two years later, the couple felt ready to invite new feline companions into their home. “I knew we would look for rescue kitties to help take some cats off the streets, so I contacted Annex Cat Rescue,” recalls Onyx.

    After meeting on Zoom with ACR volunteer foster Sarah, the couple loved the idea of taking in two bonded brothers. “Sheldon wanted to name one of the kittens Quentin Collins, a character from a gothic soap opera, Dark Shadows,” says Onyx, who wasn’t keen on the name at first.

    Quentin lounges by a window

    Upon seeing a photo of now-Quentin, however, she realized it fit. “He looked like a gentleman who in his shyness exuded a mysterious air,” says Onyx. Sheldon named the other kitten Django – a tuxedo kitty. Onyx looks forward to naming a third cat down the road.

    “ACR informed us that the brothers were born in an auto shop, so we knew it could take a while for them to adjust to a new place,” says Onyx. While their mother had done her best to care for her litter, fostering and adoption through ACR were the best option, and the boys went to their forever home.

    Django on his black tower

    Skittish at first, the boys spent two weeks in a bedroom with the comforts of food and a litter box, and eventually came out to explore. “They were cautious sniffers – checking out the other rooms and sticking close to one another,” says Onyx.

    Soon enough, the pair began playing and laying around the apartment. Django is adventurous, while Quentin watches and learns from his brother. They equally enjoy an enclosed cat playpen on the terrace, where they can safely enjoy listening to birds.

    “To this day, sometimes their ‘playground’ becomes a ‘Thunderdome’ where they playfully tumble around together,” says Onyx. Thankfully, Django is a gentle giant with his smaller brother Quentin when playing.  

    Django and Quentin share some calm time between tumbles

    Django sleeps with Onyx and Sheldon at night, while Quentin opts for the cat tower nearby. Quentin went from shy to curious – embracing a morning cuddle, trying to turn doorknobs and keeping a watchful eye on his family. Described as a “monkey kitty,” Quentin will adventurously swing off cat towers and do somersaults in the air!

    Django is described as their “matrix cat” – loving a fast-paced chase, yet also content to be held by his loving parents. “Sometimes he can’t get enough of petting and attention while he kneads his special blanket,” says Onyx.

    While sensitive to noise and other people, Django and Quentin love their home and have continued to gain comfort ­­over the last 20 months. Onyx and Sheldon credit ACR for taking care of the kittens’ initial needs, creating a safe space for them in a foster home and considering their personalities in the context of a forever home. “Both Sheldon and I feel very blessed. Living with our cat companions here is purrrrfect,” says Onyx.

  • Clock the Kitten is the Smallest Yet Bravest, She's So Happy When She Finally Has a Comfy Home
    27 September 2022


    Clock the kitten is the smallest yet bravest of all. She's so happy when she finally has a comfy home.

    Clock the kitten@jenfosterskittens

    Jen Marder of Wrenn Rescues came across a post from shelter networkers about a feline family needing a foster home.

    At the time, she had her hands full looking after other foster kitties, so she amplified the post with the rescue community. "They were so cute. I was convinced that someone would step in," Jen shared with Love Meow.

    By the time her fosters were ready to go to their forever homes, Jen noticed that the family of five were still waiting at the shelter after two weeks. "I had to step in. I agreed to take them."

    They found a foster home after two weeks at the shelter@jenfosterskittens

    The cat mother and her kittens were very emaciated and underweight, battling varying stages of upper respiratory infections. Amongst them, there was the runt of the litter named Clock who was much smaller than her siblings (Hickory, Dickory, and Dock)."

    "When they first got here, I was shocked. They were in such bad shape. The kittens were 6-8 weeks old, and Clock was the weight of a 3-week-old."

    @jenfosterskittens

    The petite cat mother, Goose, was around one year old, weighing only 5.4 pounds. "Despite everything she must have been through, she is a sweet girl who loves to rub against me and lay cuddled up against my leg," Jen shared.

    "Clock was the smallest of the litter. I was really worried she wouldn't make it, but she had such spirit. She wasn't giving up, and I wasn't going to give up on her."

    Clock is the only kitten with an overbite@jenfosterskittens

    Jen assisted Clock to eat through syringe feeding for a few days. With fuel for her body and plenty of TLC, she became strong enough to try eating on her own.

    "(The moment) she started nibbling the syringe, I finally started to think we would be okay."

    @jenfosterskittens

    In less than two weeks, Clock almost doubled her weight and even gained a sizable food belly. She was also growing into her big ears.

    "It took a lot of time and work, but I got them healthy, and their weights to where they should be."

    @jenfosterskittens

    Clock is feeling like a new cat with her voracious appetite, clear eyes and nose, and extra pep under her paws. She is the only kitten that came with a severe overbite, but it doesn't slow her down when she eats.

    "In the coming weeks, we will get her mouth checked out along with other consults. In the meantime, she is a perfect, happy, and seemingly normal little peanut."

    @jenfosterskittens

    Clock is now the first one to get to the food bowl and the second biggest kitten of the clowder after Dock. Her adorable personality has also emerged.

    While other kittens nurse on Mother Goose for comfort, Clock chooses kitten food instead.

    @jenfosterskittens

    "She is so engaging, loves to bat at her mom and siblings' tails. She is also the first to curl in my lap. She has so much fight and spirit," Jen told Love Meow.

    "I had no idea how she was still alive when she got here. She is the epitome of tiny but mighty. She had no intention of not surviving and thriving."

    Clock is fearless and full of pep@jenfosterskittens

    Five days ago, Clock officially joined the two-pound club. It was an amazing feat for the little girl.

    Mother Goose is blossoming alongside her precious four. She has turned into a love-bug, rubbing all over her foster mom every time she comes into the room.

    Clock has joined the 2-pound club@jenfosterskittens

    "Last night Goose sat cuddled in my arms getting all the head scratches for more than five minutes. She runs to me when I call her. She still has kitten energy. In short, she is an absolute gem."

  • Volunteer Spotlight on Kelli Thompson
    26 September 2022

    By Jazmynn Hoffman

    Introducing our new Volunteer Coordinator, Kelli Thompson! Kelli has been volunteering with Furry Friends for a little over a year, and initially started out as one of our kitten foster
    parents. In that amount of time, Kelli and her husband, Josh McClellan, have fostered 8 different litters of kittens! You may have also seen them at the Halfway House, since Kelli and Josh have
    recently been working as House Shift substitutes as well.

    Kelli had always wanted to foster kittens after adopting her very first kitten over 10 years ago. Once she was in a place in her life where this was possible, she and Josh wasted no time
    looking for cat rescues to foster for. “I goggled cat rescues in Vancouver, and Furry Friends was the first to come up. I applied that instant and never looked back, best decision ever!”
    Like many of our fosters, Kelli has a lot of pride in being the absolute best foster mom for her kittens, but sometimes fostering can be challenging. “Each time we get a new litter I feel like
    they will never like us and that I’m not a good enough foster mom to them. Then, in about 2 days, they are purring and cuddling, and everything is alright!” She recently fostered a small
    group of kittens, Dallas, Two-Bit, and Steve, who started out as shy, reserved, and fearful kittens. Anyone who has been to our shelter recently knows just how affectionate and outgoing
    these 3 brothers are now! This is all because of Kelli & Josh’s amazing fostering skills! In fact, she says her proudest moment volunteering was when she was able to establish trust with
    Dallas, Two-Bit, and Steve, in order to socialize them in preparation for adoption. With lots of patience, cat treats, and love, Kelli was able to get these boys to where they are now. Great job,
    Kelli!

    Before taking on the role as Volunteer Coordinator, Kelli spent between 20-40 hours a week volunteering for Furry Friends, through fostering and working at the Halfway House. She
    says her favorite part of volunteering is, of course, the cats! “The effect we have on cats in need is amazing, and truly life changing for them. We advocate for those that cant advocate for
    themselves. I love seeing the difference from beginning to the happy ending!”

    Kelli & Josh have one kitty of their own, an 8-year-old dilute calico who they call Xena! They are also the parents of a 3-year-old golden retriever/poodle mix named Remi. One fact
    about Kelli is that she has always been a cat lover! So much so, that in her senior year, she was voted, “Most Likely to Own 1,000 Cats”! Along with her love for animals, Kelli also enjoys
    organic gardening, listening to audio books, playing a game called Catan, and cooking! She is also an advocate for keeping cats indoors, and spreads awareness on the dangers of having
    outdoor kitties.

    When she isn’t volunteering at Furry Friends, Kelli volunteers with an organization called Great Life Mentoring, where she is a mentor for youth facing adversity. That’s not all though,
    Kelli also volunteers for a program called Adopt one Block, as well as with the City of Vancouver, where she picks up litter and helps keep our community clean! She is very busy as she also works as a Team Lead for a large tech company here in Vancouver.

    Kelli would like to say thank you to everyone who volunteers at Furry Friends. “Everything runs so smoothly with the great volunteers we have. I am here to support y’all and I
    cannot wait to meet each and every one of y’all!” Kelli plans to stop into the Halfway House as often as she can to meet everyone, and is excited for her new position! Thank you Kelli for all
    you have done – and continue to do – for our community!

  • Cat Rolls Around in Front of People that Took Him in After Years Wandering the Streets
    26 September 2022


    A cat rolled around in front of the people that took him in after years wandering the streets.

    Hubby the tabby catExploits Valley SPCA

    A tomcat lovingly named Chubby Hubby had lived on the streets of a small town for many years. "He was a man about town who was being fed at several different houses," Sarah MacLeod of Exploits Valley SPCA told Love Meow.

    Earlier this year, Hubby was spotted in rough shape and needed immediate medical attention. He was completely drenched from the rainstorm, covered in battle scars, and walking around with a limp.

    He was brought into Exploits Valley SPCA for help. "Hubby was so nervous when he first arrived but it didn't take long to win him over."

    Hubby had lived outside for many years before he was rescuedExploits Valley SPCA

    As soon as he decided to accept being petted, his demeanor shifted and he began to relax. With plenty of treats and a few days catching up on lost sleep, Hubby felt new and refreshed.

    He would chirp and rumble whenever staff came to visit him, and seek their attention and a few snacks.

    He fell asleep in his comfy bed with a full bellyExploits Valley SPCA

    "He was quick to purr and gobbled the treats like there was no tomorrow. He has the cutest little squawk meow that makes it hard not to do whatever he asks."

    His right hind leg has an old injury that has healed up on its own, leaving him with a bit of a limp. "Hubby says it only adds to his character and ability to get extra treats."

    He loves treats and head snugglesExploits Valley SPCA

    Katherine, a volunteer of the rescue, heard that Hubby needed a foster home and knew she had to help.

    "As soon as I brought him home, I settled him into my spare room downstairs. He had a full room to himself and a big queen-sized bed. Hubby had spent most of his time as a tomcat, so I knew it would be slow and steady," Katherine told Love Meow.

    Exploits Valley SPCA

    Soon Katherine discovered that Hubby preferred being petted on his own terms and that yummy cat treats were the way to his heart.

    "He'd like for me to wait til he decided he wanted some attention before he'd come rub against my arm or my leg."

    Hubby warmed up to his people at the foster homeKatherine

    Hubby warmed up to his foster family and showed more trust and affection to their presence each day.

    "He stopped running away from the door when I entered and started greeting me. He's learned that if he meows (or chirps) loud enough, someone will open the door and give him some attention."

    He began to hold hands with his foster momKatherine

    Hubby's coat was scruffy after years braving the elements of the outdoors. Around two months into foster care, as Hubby was coming out of his shell, Katherine tried to brush him.

    She hoped for the best and prepared for the worst. To her surprise, Hubby adored it so much that he melted into a rumbly mush. "He lay down, rolled over and soaked it all up. And what a brushing he received."

    Katherine

    "He began putting his paw on my hand and kneading it, and I suddenly became his comfort," Katherine shared.

    He can be very vocal and "opinionated" at times and isn't shy of showing his cattitude every now and then, but Hubby always offers the sweetest cuddles if you take the time to sit next to him.

    Katherine

    Hubby has grown to revel in his new life as an indoor cat, and his personality is shining through.

    The tabby boy is intrigued by the bathroom and everything in it. Privacy is out the window as he struts in and starts supervising his humans' every move.

    Hubby is fascinated with the bathroomKatherine

    "He likes to watch the toilet water being flushed and he always watches my son in the bath tub, standing with two paws on the tub's edge. He really is so precious and attentive.

    "Despite Hubby's bad leg, he still gets around like a champ. He hops on and off the bed, and has no trouble with stairs."

    Katherine

    "Hubby is a true example that stray cats can trust and love."

    All he needed was a little more time and patience and someone who believed in him and would ride out this journey alongside him.
