TLC? Well yeah, you didn't think you just bring the kitty home, and the sum of your relationship/responsiblity is just to provide grub and water, shove litter, did you? btmao and I've learnt a fair bit during these 8 years of servitude - that doesn't make us experts of course, but we'd like to share and learn somemore too. And it's surprising how some of the simplest things need to be told - we've had that plenty of times, and since we're rather average cat minions, we're sure our brethren has, like us, gotten surprises over some of the most basic things before too. We don't know about you, but some of the impact has gotten us thinking about crash-test-dummying as a side career. Anyway, here's a list of our rants and raves on Tender Loving Care for them-who-lords-it-over-us.
Abject servitor, c
TLC * I'm a new cat parent, and I'm clueless, HELP! (note: actually, even if you're not new, some of the info may still prove useful. We never stop learning after all.) * FOOD
- Hey, what's that in my food dish??
- Hey, can we have a refill here
- Vegan diet for cats? Still a controversy
- Roly poly isn't cute, unless you're a whale stocking up for summer
* Stop at ... erm, how many did you say?
- I ABSOLUTELY can't have a 2nd cat - my psychokitty will have a hissy-fit!
- One is really not the answer you want
- On the other hand, you don't want to be the lord-parent of the species either
* HEALTH HAZARDS
- Don't give old Jolly Rogers a chance to laugh at your pet's expense
- Smokers: Think of your pet before lighting your next cig
* Health Problems we've heard of, come across
- Feline Infectious Enteritis (FIE)/feline parvovirus (FPV)/feline panleucopenia
- Anal-Sac Disease
- Renal Failure aka Kidney problems
- Feline Lymphoma/Cancer/Tumours
- A little primer on those health test results
- Brain Damage - A plausible vaccination after-effect
- Sun-burning cats and lumpy skin
