I have 2 male cats and I don't drive to take them to the groomers. I do have the special tool to clip their claws but dangit....I thought I was fairly strong but I can not get hold of them to try to clip their claws....which incidentally, I am getting thru bandages like crazy cause their claws are getting long. When we play, Im probablya glutten for punishment cause either I in the wrong time and tease them in a playful way and I get scratched one way or another. Is there a certain way to clip their claws so I wont like scratching post...lol.
OK...hold on your hats cause this may take a while to explain. I have 2 male cats...Boo (all black) and Tiger (orange tabby). They are about 8 months now and I never left them except once and that time I had plans for Christmas. I got them in November from my son who adopted them for my granddaughter who was turned out allergic to them. He then called me and asked me if I could take them. At first I wasnt going to take them because of I heard these apartments are not supposed to have pets (thats another story). So I gave in because I love pets and he brought them over and of course I fell in love with them.. I have never left them ever except one time but it was Christmas and i had plans already. My mom and sister from Florida flew in and we all went to my other sisters in Chgo for Christmas. I had to leave the kittens at home but my son came once a day to feed them and clean the litter. I felt so bad leaving them at home.
So this upcoming Christmas my mom and sister in Florida want me to go to Florida. I am already nervous about the cats. I dont want them alone at home. By the way, the lady downstairs told me when I came home that she heard the cats crying every night 5 nights and running all the time. So, I decided this time to bring them somewhere....but where.??. I only borught them to the Vets...one time, because I dont drive at all, my son drove me and the cats to the vet he knows. I dont know anything "boarding" at Vet. I don't have any friends to ask....seriously... I keep to myself. The thought of my cats confine to any "cages" it seems so cruel. My son certainly cant take the cats. I even asked him if he knew of any friends that would take them when I go away. And he's the one that adopted the cats in the first place. Sheesh, do you notice that people that are NOT cat people, care less about people that have cats. I am asking some kind of advise of where I can do with my cats when I go on vacation. I care about my possessions also, so the option of somebody coming in my place is not a option..
Dont beat yourself up about this. You did the right thing. Judging the way your dog acted the last days, it was the humane thing.The poor thing was in pain, the way the he looked at your eyes...he was trying to talk to you. Dont think one more day about the "should ofs" cause that will drive you crazy. We all have said that in our life times...believe me....Ive been there so many times. Said that the same thing....should i..??. You can go back....only forward. You have fond memories and please remember the good times.
I hope I can get a clear answer about how much wet food to give to 3 and 4 month kittens. They have their dry food at all time in their respective bowls and they have the dispenser one gallon water container all the time. They seem they always hungry. I am getting mixed messages from people how to feed and how much wet food kittens should get. My son....who's not a specialist by no means.. he wants me to save money told me that they should only need 1/2 of a can of a big can....for both of them...for the whole day. Is this true...??
Whenever I go to the kitchen they are following me as if they are hungry all the time. They have their treats, which I give them at night. As I said, their bowls with dry food and the water at their disposal all the time. Why are they wanting for more food. Should they need more than 1/2 can of wet food like my son said. Then I look at the labels on the cat foods that I was shocked when it said.. you should feed kittens 1-2 cans a day... What is the right amount for kittens..??....their names is Boo..all black weighs 5 lbs and Tiger...orange tabby.. weighs 4 lbs.. their adorable. I don't want to overfeed them nor underfeed either. Please advise.
