Cat drinking water edition. Remember to make sure your cat has plenty of fresh water during hot weather.

Yeah it's ARAM.

my kitten keeps coming up to jump in my lap and cuddle up there to sleep instead of doing it in her place in the room. if i try to put something like a small fence to keep her out, she keeps meowing louder and louder until i let her out, but she doesn't do or need anything but sleep. it's a bit annoying since as i'm on the computer for the most part and if i have to move or shift around i can't because of her

I posted here a couple of weeks ago about my sick cat. I wanted to provide an update now that I know she's stable. She has kidney disease. I got her to the vet just in time. She's been there every day since. I got sent home yesterday with some syringes and a bag of fluid. She's going to need regular injections for the rest of her life. She's certainly perked up but she's still recovering and spends most of her time sleeping. I'll do what I need to for her as long as she's happy but if she just sleeps alone all day for the rest of her life and puts up a fight for every injection then I don't know. It's very bittersweet.
>>
>>3871475
She'll get used to it.
Try the treats after each shot.

How old is she?

She's 15. The vet said she's been very good with the shots for them but that being afraid may have worked to their advantage. I got her used to taking pills by giving her food afterwards and basically doesn't care at all about pills now so I'll do the same with the fluids.

Her name is Sibyl by the way. She's very chatty. I hope to hear her late night yowling and skittering around the house again soon. She's up 2lbs since her emergency visit which was mostly water so it shows how dehydrated she was.
>>
>>3871475
>>3871492
Poor Sibyl, I hope the treatment works and her health improves by the minute.

>>3871438
All kittens do this because they don't want to stay alone for a long time, just like human babies. It's also a way to say "hey you're treating me well, see, I love you!".
She will slowly become more independent as the months pass.

It would be creepy if she were a human but when cats are so obsessed with their human they're adorable. Also yes, still pretty young. Took my cats 2 years to calm down, he was very energetic but not so sociable.

Bros, I wanna get a cat, what should I know before owning one?
>>
>>3871771
Younger cats and kittens are more demanding and will have more energy than older cats so consider this before picking one. Their litter needs to be cleaned at least daily. Wet food is better than dry food as it's less likely for the cat to develop kidney issues (but make sure the ingredients are mostly meat). Cats like routine and quiet most of the time so if your lifestyle can't provide that then maybe don't. Despite cats being independent, they still enjoy company so you have to spend some time and play with it every day. On that topic it's also good to get some physical activity in for your cat, either getting him into strolls outside early in its life, or just getting toys and stuff to chase around. If you can, cats also enjoy high up and/or hidden and/or comfy spots, or looking out windows so try to have some of those available. If not already done when you get it it's a good idea to get your cat neutered/spayed and vaccinated. Also don't declaw it, cats need claws to defend themselves and it's also animal cruelty akin to cutting off your fingers at the last joint. A scratching post is nice for them to shed off their old claws. If your cat is long haired it's ideal if you can groom it every now and then. That's all I can think of.

could use any advice you have to give me
Little guy named Okra, missing an eye and partially blind in the other, 2 months old and 2.25lbs.
I have a really small place so i'm not really worried about him getting lost around or anything, but I think i might need to litterbox train him, anything else I should be wary about?

my cat wants to go outside ALL THE FUCKING TIME. He's not even a year old. I made the terrible mistake of walking him once and now he spends every day and night meowing at the door. What the fuck do I do? I can't walk him 24/7

I don't want her to get The Needle now, bros. I was hoping she'd at least get another spring and summer and be able to sleep out in the yard, in the sun, like she could when she was young.
Her claws need trimming so it could be that making it hurt for her to walk. But I really don't think that's it, they're not that long.
Hoping it's not something I don't know anything about like neural degeneration that seals the deal.

Tl;dr because the author makes 5 pages out of thin air :
Separate
Make them used to the other's smell
Make them see each other from apart
Place stuff with the other's smell on the other's territory
Play with both side by side
Merge the territory and expect hell anyway

I'm afraid there's not much you can do. Hopefully it will give up. Make amends to your cat by spending quality time together in your free time.
>>3872002
The litter box training is going be easy since it's a kitten. Put litter box and the water/food bowls in one room for the first couple of weeks, he will probably be diffident and scared and will hide all day, and needs to have all that stuff accessible. Once he starts exploring the house and gets more confident your can move them elsewhere.
I've never owned blind cats myself, but I would be worried about balconies or a spots where he might fall off. I guess it'd be best to attach a net?
Remove anything that could represent a danger for him, like sharp/small objects he can easily reach and bite, be careful that he doesn't go near burning stoves etc.
Please post a pic when Okra arrives!
>>3872293
Be patient and hear what the vet tells you.
15 years for a cat is a good milestone.
We as owners must take decisions based on what is right for our cat's well-being, even if it's painful to accept.
I'm sending your cat my best wishes.

I got a kitten 2 days ago, he's 3 weeks old, but he hides all day, I legit cannot find him, but at least comes out at night to eat. What can I do? Bring something tasty to him? Try to lure him somehow? I have a few of these Churu tubes.

He was kinda used to my mother tho, she had it for around 4 days before, should I ask her to come over and try to get him out?

Vet is coming tomorrow. I am not hopeful my old girl will be with us this time tomorrow.
Watching the way she moves I think it is some kind of back issue rather than arthritis in her legs getting worse.
She doesn't want to put weight on her left legs. Back leg is sliding out and she is holding up her foreleg sometimes as if there was something stuck in her paw.
She seems to be learning to work with it. Moving normally except for very slowly and with pauses. Leaning on her right side at the bowl.
But she pissed on a towel earlier and couldn't even stand and squat.
It's winter here which is probably exacerbating it.

What's a good slow feeder for wet cat food? Some days, my cat would throw up from eating too fast. He's fine with dry food, and he can eat wet food okay, but some days he eats wet food too quickly.
>>
My cat has started doing a massage on my legs when I lie down, like what they do with their paws, but he's doing with his hind legs instead. He does it over my entire leg, and keeps doing it for a long time. He's neutered so it's probably not him trying to breed, so I don't know why he is doing this. Any ideas?

My faggot roommate got an adult cat and a kitten and the kitten is so goddamn annoying running all over the place and both of them constantly wrestling and meowing. Do kittens or cats understand discipline? They jump up in front of the TV when I’m playing vidya and constantly wrestle and yell at each other and jump on the counters and claw the furniture. My roommate just decided I would take care of them for the weekend so I can do whatever I want to show him that was a mistake. I was thinking of imprisoning them under a laundry basket separated for a few hours so they would shut the fuck up. Is spraying them with a bottle any good? When my roommate gets back I’m gonna tell him I want them fucking gone
>>
>>3874114
they were stupid enough to let them out in the first place
>>
>>3874130
Dude imprisonment doesn't work, you need to correct their behaviour at the time. If they claw furniture, take them to the scratchy post and put their paws on it. Just gently push them off or pick up and take off shit they aren't meant to climb on with a firm "no". Spraying with a bottle won't work, most likely they'll play or fight it, but they won't consider it punishment, more "you're a dick". Of course they'll play and fight, they're animals. They also sound bored, get toys, play with them, fuss them and shit. Sounds like your room mate doesn't understand ownership responsibilities also.

Can cats sense when you're sad? I was a little depressed yesterday and my cat seemed to come over and rub himself on my legs and lay down next to me more. This may not seem like much but those are usually his only forms of showing affection as he's a very sensitive cat doesn't like being touched excessively or picked up, so it really felt he was trying to make me feel better, which he managed to do btw...
>>
>>3874378
Most semi-sentient creatures can sense our and others emotions. Cats, dogs, and horses all can, honestly. And they know that depression actually harms us, so they try to offer comfort in order to make us happy so we aren't hurting ourselves. It's quite fascinating, really.
>>
>>3871417
Cats are indoor pets.
>>
>>3874378
cats can sense when things are "off" in a number of ways. Cats can even be trained to detect seizures about to happen. I think they can smell it. They can smell what you've eaten, where you've been, how you feel, your hormones. They know a lot more about us than we realize, like they have this incredible nose (almost as good as a dogs) and not much else to do, so they're gonna study us

Just got a new kitten. He is hiding his head under my drapes with his ass sticking out. I pet his haunches and he starts purring like mad, but the moment I pull back the drapes he freaks out like he can't understand I was the one petting him.

His current name is Bjorn and I adopted him today
We already have one cat, a 3 year old female
We've been introducing them slowly and finally have them in the same room
He seems chill as fuck and exploring everything and cuddling up on us but she's hissing if he gets too close
Fingers crossed that she gets more comfortable around him, she's been a solo cat forever.
>>
just got a kitten for my kitten. He's in the bathroom (I live in a studio) and every time the older kitten sees the new one he hisses nonstop. This is normal right? when should I let the new kid out of the bathroom? it's fairly small and the neighbor's apt is right on the other side, so his meowing may annoy him

I guess that's good news. I tried the internet's "isolation" method but it's really not feasible in my small studio. Bathroom is too cramped and the loud meowing might get me in trouble. So I tried to distract both of them as much as possible for the past 3 hours. New kid was very playful but old one only at the beginning, after a while just stared at new kid and occasionally hissed. I guess it could be worse, not a lot of swatting yet. Any tips?

I only have experience introducing a puppy to an older cat really. Got a new cat this week.

Yeah, mine are terrified. I have to vacuum the living room every day, I do it in the morning when they sleep on the bed and they don't seem to care, they keep sleeping peacefully when the noise is distant and the door is closed.

Young kittens will get along quickly, don't worry if you're not following internet's advices literally and let them move freely. As I replied to the first anon, be there to divie them if the rough play turns into aggressive attacks.

How do I get a feral cat spayed again? Make an appointment to get fixed, HOPE I can trap it before the appointment, pay full price, keep it in my apartment for a day to recover, then release? It doesn't seem that easy. I don't even have a car so I would have to rent one I guess.

I'm introducing my 10 week old kitten to my sisters 20 week old kitten. We live together and I kept them separated and just playing under the door for the first week and a bit. They seem really excited to meet each other and were meowing nonstop trying to see each other near the end of the week.

As you can imagine the 20 week old kitten is double the size of the younger one. When they play fight, my sister's kitten isn't hurting mine, but he is very excited and forceful. He won't bite down too hard but he doesn't know his own strength and he'll throw the kitten around and bite on his neck and feet. He'll even extend his whole mouth around my kitten's neck. My kitten will yowl really loudly (even his regular meows are super high pitch and loud though) to the point where it sounds like he's in a lot of pain.

The thing is my kitten will keep going towards him and no one is hissing or puffing their tails. I can't tell if I should let them continue or not. My kitten will even start half the exchanges by pawing at him and then immediately get knocked to the floor and body slammed.

I don't get it

It's typical play behavior. Lots of young animals all over the kingdom do this. Dogs, cats, etc. They're playing, learning how to be the animal they are, learning their own strength, and forming a bond which is necessary if you wish for them to live peacefully. Also, it's seeing who is going to be over the other in terms of hierarchy. Let'em be, they're fine, I promise.
>>
>>3875702
At what point should I trust them to be alone though? Because the bigger cat is really just beating the shit out of him at times

do i still leave him locked with me in my room at night?
>>
So I got okra and brought him home. Everything was good, he came out of his cage and ate food, played, took a nap with me. I went out to grab some groceries quick, came back and he ran behind the toilet. I put a bowl of water over there and left his food where it was earlier. Unsure what happened, maybe ambivalence and he just needs to get used to everything?
Should i be worried, he is missing an eye and partially blind in the other, no medical issues though, I figure he'll be ok but no idea as this is my first cat
>>
>>3874817
I need to come up with a name for my kitten but I am stuck. I keep calling him "guy" "bruh" and "my dude," but those aren't really cat names. So far his personality alternates between schitzophrenic running around with non-stop crying and purr machine and complete lovebug. He is a tuxedo cat with facial markings that look like one of those Zorro masks so I was thinking of calling him Mamoru Chiba, but no one would get it and weebshit is gay.
>>
>>3875742
call him zorro then idk
>>
>>3875744
Zorro didn't wear a tuxedo. He wore that gay af frilly shirt. /an/ is useless. Just a bunch of furries and dogfuckers.

Are my kittens playing too rough? I separated them after this and they're now meowing at the door. The bigger kitten will just hold him hostage and won't let the smaller kitten get away after a certain point..

they kinda just go at it forever
>>
>>3875834
That's pretty normal. Just a dominance and play thing. If it gets too crazy just break them up, but they should tire themselves out soon enough. Also look up cat body language. There none of them look very stressed or in fear like they are being attacked against their will. Now if their hair goes up, the tail is puffed out, and one is very clearly not enjoying it then break that up and it's going too far. Otherwise just let them go at it.
>>
>>3875840
ok thanks, the smaller kitten just sounds like he's getting murdered everytime they play so it stresses me out
>>
>>3875841
Nah. He's fine. Think of it more like when kids wrestle and they make noises or yell and it's not serious. Like I said if you see the hair go up or the tail then that means it's a defensive posture and isn't for fun anymore. But as long as it's just like that it's normal and they're just playing. They're feeling each other out basically. Just let them get it out of their system and it'll be over. Just pay attention to make sure it doesn't go too far. But given they're kittens it likely won't. If they were full adult males or something it'd be a different story because then you have territoriality to worry about. But what you see there is pretty basic for kittens. Especially since they are new to each other. But I know what you mean. But it sounds way worse than it is. Just keep an eye out for the warning signs I mentioned and if that happens then it's over.
>>
>>3875742
Who was your favorite Bond? Name him that.
>>
>>3875843
Also other warning signs: hissing, mewling, actual claws coming out. Just so you can keep track of the feel of what's going on between them and know if it does cross a line.

I was under the impression that the dad doesn't involve himself at all but I saw him hanging out and playing a little with the feral kitten today.

can i give my cat a raw chicken neck
bought a kg of them for my dog for a couple bucks and there were way more than expected, but they didnt sell less than a kg
theyre frozen so theyll keep forever, but wondering if my car would enjoy one
>>
>>3875861
As with many things kot, it's a case-by-case basis. Fathers aren't generally involved in kitten-rearing by design, but some may be unusually affectionate or especially protective of their lady.

/o/ is over there, but I'm pretty sure you can't just feed cars food. Also make sure no bones etc in it, but yes, cats do enjoy raw food.

Are face licks from cats always good?

>>3876742
> sugar in gas tank
> potato in tail pipe
> baloney with mustard and ketchup on the body

Not sure it counts as eating, but...
>>
>>3876769
I appreciate them but I'd not describe the feeling as entirely good. It's very sweet though and loving. Can also be an auto-grooming response to fuss as well, in certain areas the cat can't easily groom itself.
>>
>>3874432
I did not know cats are that complicated.
Looking at cats that breed in the wild, I thought they had 4 fur sliders and 1 nose slider in the character creation menu.

So my kot is 16 weeks old and likes to run and jump and grab my arm and then bite it and scratch it

When will she grow out of this
>>
>>3875672
There's special food to reduce the smell. You can prevent tartar and plaque by brushing its teeth every day. I think every owner should do it.
How old is your lovely black kitty? Looks quite young. Maybe you can train it.
>>3875715
He's hearing new sounds, noises, for the first time. Anything could upset or scare Okra. Don't worry and give him time. Probably because he has vision impairments he'll need more time than a 'normal' cat.
>>
>>3875986
What's to redpill? They exist because shitty people abandon their animals or they don't neuter/spay them.
>>3876166
Might be fussy if it's not part of its regular diet. Anyway cook it before giving it to your cat, no seasonings or salt.

When she'll stop being a kitten physically.
