Can I interest anyone in a fluffy loaf?



Hit 2kg this week - she was about 1kg at 10-12 weeks so quite a small girl, smallest of the litter anyway.

I love her face - I bet her fur is soft and silky - Our other cat had very soft fur but Ronnie has firm fur.

Just looking at the camera (CCTV) and we have a white and black marked cat coming round just lately.
No idea where she is from (looks a she) timid - I used to put Ronnies uneaten food out for the big hedgehog but it seems this cat get's in first.
Stopped putting it out but it still comes to the gate to have a look - been twice tonight but I think I have put some out too late.

Mrs Meowington (Maggie) went in for her spay and microchip today. She's not happy and is struggling to come to terms with the sleeve. So are we to be honest, worried about waking up tomorrow with pee and poop everywhere cos the vest is all around her with just a small gap for her parts.

Aw bless 'er.

In my experience, most cats get used to it quite quickly and most of those who don't won't actually do themselves harm without the collar anyway. But if there is pee and poop everywhere, I hope you'll be kind to your poor suffering kitty.

Well we used a cone on the previous cat and she just ripped it off constantly and when it came to feeding time she couldn't eat anything so we though the sleeve would be better.

Those Kitlers are lovely... I especially like the one where he's trying NOT to do his Sieg Heil salute by holding his paws down...

I don't actually own a cat but am friends with a bunch of locals two of whom come and go from my flat pretty much as you please.

The first is Buttons, I got up to make coffee and he sneaked in and appropriated my chair, that was gaming done for the day.

Next we have the majestic Felix another visitor to my flat but a little unsure so does not stay long, I have yet to take a photo as if he hears me he is off out of the cat flap.

This is Buttons dealing Catnip from the planter and employing Felix as muscle.

Next we have Luna who is fearless and a mighty hunter enjoying a few treats.

Hi all. After some advice if any.

We moved home in April and since then one of our cats has developed a habit of people on the toilet floor. However he still poops in the tray.

In the other tray upstairs he uses it no problem.

It's doing our heads in as already the flooring and skirting is ruined. Don't want to replace it until we solve the issue.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Nightmare.

Usually cats who are litter trained will naturally return to proper usage in time, but moving or other disruption can interfere with their training. I would put another litter tray near where he is peeing, and tinfoil over the ground where he is peeing (cats don't usually like peeing on it). If possible, you could also stop him entering the area he is peeing in for a few weeks. Make sure you clear up any pee quickly, and use specialist cleaning sprays to get the smell out - cats are attracted to peeing where they've pee'd before.

If you're using a covered litter tray, try take the cover off, or buying a larger tray.

If it's any consolation: we had three months of pooping hell from our new kittens. Then, one day, they just stopped and for the last month there have been no off-piste pooping incidents. These things are often temporary.

He isn't a young cat he is 15. It's just bizarre that is is pooping in it but peeing on the floor. I've tried cleaning and also putting bleach all around the edge of the room but that hasn't helped either. I'll try the tin foil but just worried he'll just pee elsewhere. He was fine before we moved and was ok to start with after the move. The only new thing is a higher sided litter tray as the other cat(also 15) was peeing over the edges as he wasn't crouching enough.
