Cat Food

With my indoor only cats and their finicky lifestyle they get pampered with these.  I cook chicken thighs and chop them up, freezing in small 2 day portions. Mixing the chicken with cans of cat food to make sure they are getting all the nutrition they need to stay healthy. Good quality cat food is a must if you want to spend less time at the vet in their mature years. Raw ground sirloin is part of their breakfast menu along with Plague Off and Seal Meal.

The Plaque Off is given once in the morning. One little scoop. And it is one tiny scoop. I have finally left it out of the container as it was getting harder to retrieve out of the bottle. Seal Meal I give to the cats a 1/8 of a teaspoon for breakfast and dinner. It supports skin & coat, digestive and immune health. With 2 cats twice a day, I have calculated a one pound container should last about 6.5 months. Not a bad investment for their health compared to a few visits to the vet. Healthy cats are happy cats and that is the goal of this website and owning our furry little babies.

 

Litter Boxes

This first litter box… well I got two of them, has worked out fine for my cat that insists on standing on her tip-toes to pee. They are jumpers and have no problem getting in or out of the box. I have left off the top as it seems to not be an issue for them. If I were to purchase another box, I think a wider box would be a better choice, then leaving the top on would be more advantageous. But they were a solution for Lily, my stander. Don’t get rid of the cat, just find a solution to accommodate their quirks. We all have quirks that are annoying to others, but they don’t abandon us, so we shouldn’t abandon the little ones we bring into our homes. The second box here is a little wider and the entry is a little wider. I wondered about how they would go for the lid and it doesn’t seem to matter if it is on or off.I left the lid off for the duration of Lily’s recovery. Put the lids back on recently and I get less litter when I do. Will take the lids off when Lucy has her surgery and recovery stage. Will also put back into use the front opening box until she can jump again. (June 9, 2021 is surgery date) If you find they are peeing in one end of the box, you can just turn the box around and attach the lid. Nice there is no set way it has to be attached. Easy snap on and off. I don’t use the scoop, as I already had a bigger one and a little container to put the poop and scoop in. But if my big scoop breaks, I have 2 backups. Note: Don’t be intimated by the Sea Foam Green or the Pink boxes for your male cat or your home decor. The boxes do come in other colors. Just wanted a cheery color as opposed to the typical litter box choices of years ago. We all like color in our lives. Find something that fits in with your color scheme.

 

Litter we use

I like this litter, although it doesn’t say it is for cats. Breeders have been using it, so it must be approved by people in the know. Nice part about it is that it is very light weight compared to the clay. My thoughts are that what ever sticks to their feet, gets ingested. If clumping litter clumps when wet, then how much gets on the cat’s feet and then into their gut. Clay tracks all over the house and for those with allergies, don’t think it is so great; for cats or people. The corn cob has no residue and although ends up on the floor, it doesn’t cling to the cat’s feet. Yay, it hurts when you walk on it with bare feet, but not as bad as clay. Urine sinks to the bottom of the box and the odor remains at the bottom. If you have frantic diggers they will bring some wet to the top, but it just doesn’t stink up the house like clay does. Since the urine goes to the bottom quickly, it makes it more pleasant for the next user. Box is easier to clean than boxes with clay.

Rug Shampooer (Bissell)

There are many models from Bissell and with very little carpeting in the house I decided not to get a larger model. Very happy with the results after using it. They give back to homeless pets for every purchase made, which makes it a good reason to choose their product.
