Your questions aren't silly! It's great that you're thinking about how you can make you both comfortable before you dive into a new situation. Always set yourself up for success! :)

> do I buy a litter box/food/scratch-post before I plan to bring a cat home?

That's generally a good idea, yes. Means less stress for both of you as you're scrambling to get everything ready for him. You might ask the shelter what food the cat has been eating, as cats can get an upset tummy when switching brands/types. Not a big deal, but he will have poops that are a bit stinkier/liquidier than normal poops. That should alleviate within the week. You can lessen the tummy troubles by doing a more gradual change, mixing the food he is currently on with the food he will be on more and more, until he is eating what you want him on. But you can honestly just do the change, too, and just deal with the sadpoops for a little while.

I suggest a couple of different scratching posts, if you have the space! Cats like having options, like a horizontal post and a vertical one. Cats also like being high up, so if you can swing a tall post with platforms, he will probably like that.

Get two litter boxes! A lot of people don't realize it, but the rule of thumb for number of litters you should have is NumberOfCats + 1. So, 1 cat + 1 = 2 boxes. Clean them often. Cats are very clean creatures (especially compared to dogs) and are MUCH more likely to have accidents when they feel they do not have a better option than peeing in your bed. That's not their fault. You wouldn't want to step on your own pee/poop either! If you have problems with litter getting kicked out of the box, a litter mat can be helpful.

> Do I need to buy a carrier for the cat?

Yep. You'll eventually need to take him to a vet in all likelihood, and a carrier will make that so much easier, as most cats despise the car. I recommend a hard carrier. The softer ones seem nicer in general, but the hard carriers are easier to clean out, and you never know how a cat will be in the car until... well. They're in it. One of our cats poops and pees every. single. time. So he always gets the hard carrier.

> Should I contact a vet before I get the cat?

The shelter might require you to have a vet already, so I'd probably at least pick one out from google search. They might require you to go get a checkup, but probably not. That's more of a rescue thing, I think. Most shelters have their own in-house vet, so it's not really necessary. Don't be afraid to contact the shelter if he seems to be coughing and wheezing. Upper respiratory infections are very common in shelter environments due to the crowded nature of them, but they are also very treatable, and the shelter will be able to give you medication for him.

> How do I train a cat?

Someone mentioned Jackson Galaxy, who I generally agree is pretty good for training if you have some problems. But most of the time, cats are pretty out-of-the-box ready pets. That is to say, if you have an environment that is good for cats (where you let them have some space, where you don't make a huge amount of loud noise, where they aren't prodded and poked at constantly), they generally don't need training. We've fostered tiny kittens that automatically knew how to use the litter box. We also have boy cats who were not fixed until well into adulthood and have never had problems spraying.
It's instinct to go in the box, especially once they're fixed and don't need to mark territory really.

> For those of you who own a cat/cats, any advice for this first-timer?

Give both of you time to get to know each other. Don't force it. He will come to you, given time and space, and you'll be able to cultivate a better relationship built on trust and mutual respect if he knows that you won't force him to do things that he doesn't want to do (especially at first--think about it like building a friendship with a person; you would trust your friends to do things that you would never trust a stranger to do, and it's the same for him).

Cooing and gentle words are generally pretty good for coaxing, as is letting him smell your hand/something that smells like you before you approach for pets. Think about it like introducing yourself. You wouldn't go up to someone you didn't know well and just touch them without at least saying hi.

Every cat I have ever known, male or female, fixed or not, will pee in a pile of anything if it is left long enough. They see it as 'trash,' and I think it just registers as litter. So, if you are the type to leave clothes on the floor... I would try to stop that.

Keep nails trimmed. Scratching posts are for sharpening nails, which is an instinct that they have to fulfill, and you're giving them an outlet for. Some people think it's for 'filing' the nails down, but it's not. It's for keeping them sharp enough to get prey. You'll have to trim them.

And this is just my own personal opinion, but... young--but not kitten--boy cats are best for first timers. I have one girl, and I absolutely adore her, but she is very high maintenance/prissy/touchy, whereas my three boys are all pretty chill. Each cat is different though, so obviously your mileage may vary! It's just something I've noticed in general in my time of owning and fostering cats, that boys are more laid back/forgiving than girls (and thus I think a little easier for a first timer). Young adults are also great for first timers because you have less accidents (though that's generally not a big concern anyway) and they're more able to be on their own for longer periods of time. Older adults/seniors are great too if you want a really, really chill, more stand-offish cat, or if you want a cat that you'll have for <10 years, but if you want a little more energy and time, a cat that's about 1-2 years old is a GREAT way to go.

Some toys that are great for cats include the classic laser pointer, the feather toy, catnip toys, and crinkle balls.

Cats prefer to drink away from where they eat, so place his food bowl and his water bowl apart from one another! Some cats also prefer running water to still water, so if you notice your cat likes drinking out of the faucet (or if you just want to spoil your cat like I spoil mine...) you can get a water fountain for him!

Finally, if it's not working out for some reason, like your personalities just don't mesh well... take him back. I know it sounds hard, but it's best for him if he is in an environment where he is understood and his needs are met. There's no sense in forcing both of you to be miserable. Some shelters let you do a foster-to-adopt sort of thing, where you sort of try each other out for a bit. I like this option, because you hope for the best, but it feels a little bit easier to tap out if you need to. Either way, there's no shame in tapping out. Sometimes things just don't work the way you thought they would.

Sorry for the novel, but I wanted to be as thorough as I could. My parents recently got their first cat, and it's been... an ordeal for them, getting used to it.
It's great that you have some experience with cats though, so I think you'll be fine! Seriously, cats are sort of the next level up from a goldfish as far as easiness. Should be fine.

I hope you and your new furbaby are super, super happy together! :)

u/vannah08510 · 1 pointr/cats

Let her into your room! She'll be much happier with more space. I highly recommend having a cat tree or two in your place. Give her a box to hide in. Or even try one of these out!

KOJIMA Shark Round House Puppy Bed with Pet Bed Mat, Small to Medium (Gray, Small) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HRXQ90I/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_dcINybCJMQWEE

Don't prevent her from hiding, but do challenge her once in a while to be comfortable in different rooms and open spaces.

Try the toy distraction on your 2 year old cat. That's what I meant. If she's showing aggression, it's one of the best ways to distract her from the cat who's more shy.

Make sure the new cat isn't doing anything to provoke your 2 year old cat. If she is, that behavior will need to be adjusted before the 2 year old cat can be comfortable with her.

100% agree on the tuna. If you'd like to learn about cat nutrition, I highly recommend http://www.thecatsite.com for its active forums and articles on feline nutrition (they can also give great input on behaviors)

Here are two nutrition articles to get you started:



You'll find that grain free high protein wet/raw foods are best for your babies as unlike people and even dogs, cats are obligate carnivores. (Here is some of that science: https://www.waltham.com/document/nutrition/cat/dog/differences-between-cat-and-dog/284/ )
My recommendation is making a small trip to an independent pet food store (not petco, petsmart, or even pet supplies plus) Take a look on yelp for good ones in your area. (Just search for pet food stores) If there are none, try Chewy.com. They sell all sorts of pet foods (you can filter by grain free) The forums on thecatsite are very good in terms of discussion of different commercial and home-made food options. (As you might be able to tell, I've done a lot of my own research!)

But yes. You are correct. Plain tuna does not contain the amount of Taurine (that's just one or the major ones) cats need to thrive. Fish generally is something you should stray from due to high mercury content and addictiveness. (Dry food is also very addictive and contributes most to obesity, digestive issues, UTIs, urinary crystals, and more)

And good! Yes, be creative in your ways to distract her! If she's not enjoying her favorite toy, try a new one. (Cats love Da'Bird and similar long (~3 ft) fishing pole type toys. ) Check out these links.

GoCat Da Bird Rod and Feather Cat Toys, Assorted Colors https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001BOVEU4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_wzINybW7DMFV9

Cats really jump for these types of long fishing pole toys that use feathers or other fur like parts. I do recommend always having a handy supply of strong duct tape to fix minor issues and strengthen the parts of well-used toys. (I had to tightly reinforce the end of the rod that connects to the string so the end piece holding the string wouldn't come off)

Petmate Jackson Galaxy Cat Crawl Solid Tunnel, Green/Orange https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00O3GWKHS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_UDINyb34HXAEW

Great space for stalking and hiding during play

Nature In Hand Cat Play House with Catnip and Scratcher (Cat Scratching House) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01AJAHOC2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_DFINybC4C5TWA

Triple function hide, stealth play, and cardboard scratcher. I have one that my cat loves! You can sometimes find seasonal looking ones on clearance at local pet stores (I have a gingerbread xmas themed one that I got on clearance for half the price on amazon) Cardboard scratchers, to me, are a must. Whether it's something like this or just by itself.

Nano Robotic Cat Toy (White/Blue) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RWU17KS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_kyINyb5FX7DB2

This one is great if you have hard wood or tile floors. Otherwise, pass.

The idea here is to give them more enrichment, hide space, and ways to play.

That said, having more vertical space is also a really good idea.

You know how cat trees (especially the 6 ft ones) are like 200 dollars at pet stores?
Check this out:

Go Pet Club Cat Tree, 50W x 26L x 72H, Beige https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003WGGWQA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_awINybGSAA2EB

BestPet CT-9073 Cat Tree Scratcher Play House Condo Furniture Toy, 73-Inch, Beige https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NOL7OQU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_-wINybKYYYCDX

You can find more on amazon. Groupon or eBay are also good sources. Your cats will be more comfortable if they can observe their territory from a high place rather than hiding behind a toilet. I really do think it would help give them more confidence. You could even install cat shelves on your walls if you want to. But a cat tree(or two!) goes a long way!

Give them their own favorite places to occupy so that they are better able to share their space.

u/NeighborhoodUnicorn · 1 pointr/cats

I just buy stuff at the pet store, but I can try and find a few recommendations. You'll want to avoid things with bells or small parts, at least while she's tiny. PetSmart usually has some pretty good stuff, or you can even find a good selection on Amazon. If you're gone a lot, it also might be a good idea to invest in something you can turn on and leave running while you're gone, like this:

Ironically, my cat's favorite toy is a piece of cut up fleece on a stick that I got from the pet store.

Here are a few homemade things that look fun:



And here are some more things from Amazon that I would recommend:


Just make sure she's careful with the string on this one. As long as she doesn't break it off and swallow it, it should be fine.

Some sort of a laser pointer is always a great toy for kitties, just make sure not to shine it in her eyes.

Finally, make sure to get her a cat tree if you have room for one. Cats like to climb. Something like this would be great:

Scratching posts are also important, so here's what I would recommend for a scratching post, if you don't want to get the cat tree:

Once you spay her, if she isn't already, feed her adult food so she doesn't gain too much weight. A good kitten food to start her on before the spay is Good Natured, at PetSmart. If she's spayed and you want to start her on adult food, I use this, and my cat loves it, and she's super healthy:

If you have any other questions, please feel free to message me. I have had my cat for two years, and raised her since she was three months old, so I can answer a lot of kitten questions.

One more thing, get her a bed. She may not always use it, but she will appreciate it.

u/itsronnielanelove · 2 pointsr/Pets

I live with my boyfriend and cat in a 400 sqft studio. It's a bit cramped, but we've made it work. Our little kitty is such a happy cat with no desire for the outdoors beyond her window. Below are a few tips

Things that are a must:

  • A clean space. Cats need some space to go crazy kitty and to chase their toys. If you have clothes all of the ground it makes it harder for them to "hunt". Also, the cleaner it is, the less your tiny space smells like a litter box. When people visit us they're amazed that you can't smell that a cat lives there. You only know by her overwhelming paraphernalia stashed around the apartment.

  • As other posters have said: Vertical Space. We have a small three tiered tree by the window that our cat LOVES. It was relatively inexpensive from Amazon. It's got three small platforms and goes all the way to the ceiling (the top part is like a plastic piece that inserts into the tree with a spring to stabilize it with the ceiling). She runs up and down that thing all the time, perches to watch us, etc. I disagree that all of the tops of things should be accessible to your feline friend. Living in a small space means you have to make the most out of everything. The top of our fridge, cabinets, and bookshelf are full of things that have no where else to go. So, we found something that would work. Ideally, we want one more tree for another spot but we're waiting until after the holidays.

  • A nice window spot. She doesn't get a lot of scenery changes, but she likes looking out every once in a while. As poor college kids, we just have a sheet over the window by the couch. It makes a perfect hiding spot and a great visual stimulation.

  • Separate areas for food and litter. For us, food is by the cat tree in the kitchen and litter is by the desk on the opposite side of the apartment. The bathroom would be preferable, of course, but ours is way too small.

  • Rotating toys. It's a small area, so we keep things fresh by rotating her toys. The staples are her jingly balls but she also has a couple types of mice, pumpkins, crinkly balls, and feather balls that we hold onto and change out about weekly.

  • A play time routine. OP this is crucial! If you don't want a cat who wants to play all night with nowhere to go but the sole room of your place, have a daily play time that wears her out.

  • Ample scratching spots. This is a must with any cat, but imo the destruction is more noticeable in the smaller space. Our kitty has three places she can go, and she uses them happily. Very rarely does she try to scratch something she shouldn't.

    Let me know if you have any questions!

u/nerdybirdie · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Scavenger hunts are too much fun! I should be working! RAWR! Thanks for the fun break =]

1.) Something that is grey. My name is makeup and I am grey! WL

2.) Something reminiscent of rain. This color is called "Naughty Nautical". Nautical = water, water = rain. =D?? WL

3.) Something food related that is unusual. Pretty sure most people don't have teeney shaped veggie cutters. WL

4.) Something on your list that is for someone other than yourself. Tell me who it's for and why. (Yes, pets count!) This is for my two parrots! My quaker especially loves dried papaya. I'm teaching her how to fly right now and have been using food as a reward, but we ran out of papaya a couple of weeks ago, and our local bird store has been out of stock for a long time. Turns out that Whole Foods doesn't carry dried papaya either. Rawr! WL

5.) A book I should read! I am an avid reader, so take your best shot and tell me why I need to read it! The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I had heard about this when the movie came out in English. I liked the movie and then moved on with my life. Come this spring, I found myself facing a LOT LOT LOT of driving by myself, so I started borrowing audiobooks from the library. I borrowed all three of these books and REALLY enjoyed them. It wasn't at all what I expected. They're murder mysteries with a lot of themes about violence against women. When I learned about the author, it became that much more interesting. The author wrote these books with the intention of making 10, but died after the third one. They found them after he died. The themes about sexual violence stem from a gang rape he witnessed as a teenager. He never forgave himself for not being able to help her, so he channeled all those emotions into his writing later in life. Anyway.....interesting stuff. Good books. I recommend them :)

6.) An item that is less than a dollar, including shipping... that is not jewelry, nail polish, and or hair related! Pfft.

7.) Something related to cats. I love cats! (keep this SFW, you know who you are...) If I was a cat, this would be my JAM!

8.) Something that is not useful, but so beautiful you must have it. Dresses are admittedly useful for avoiding public indecency charges, but not really useful beyond that. BUT LOOK AT THE RAINBOWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WL

9.) A movie everyone should watch at least once in their life. Why? Not on my wishlist (it's on American Netflix though!), but everyone should be aware of the impact of plastic on the environment and our bodies. Education is everything. Plus, there's a newborn baby at the end.

10.) Something that would be useful when the zombies attack. Explain. 1. Stab zombie in the skull. 2. ??? 3. Profit. The reviews rave that it's super sharp and doesn't stick so it probably wouldn't get stuck in their skull like other knives. WL

11.) Something that would have a profound impact on your life and help you to achieve your current goals. I don't know if I'd use the word profound, but it would sure help me out. A big passion of mine is learning to ID birds. I'm pretty good at most birds, but finding information on juveniles is VERY difficult sometimes. I've used this book before to help identify birds in hand, but I think the information regarding juvenile plumage would help me identify young birds from afar. It's even part of my job to identify birds! WL

12.) One of those pesky Add-On items. This is an Add-On item, but it's also a hair addon =P Not on my WL, but I'm losing my hair like crazy so I might have to look into these >.>

13.) The most expensive thing on your list. Your dream item. Why? This isn't the most expensive item on my list (that was #8), but it's the one that would help me the most! When I do field work, I tend to have a lot of gear on me at once, and the extra strain of binoculars around my neck tends to give me some really freaking sore muscles. A harness would be MUCH easier on my shoulders/neck/back. I start field work again in October, so I plan on buying it for myself by then anyway =] WL

14.) Something bigger than a bread box. EDIT A bread box is typically similar in size to a microwave. This is larger than the average bread box.

15.) Something smaller than a golf ball. I am smaller than a golf ball! WL

16.) Something that smells wonderful. This smells amazing!!! I'm infatuated with cinnamon, but had to stop using cinnamon Crest YEARS ago because I developed a bad reaction to it. This stuff is expensive, but the company is very environmentally responsible and I feel good giving my business to them. WL

17.) A (SFW) toy. This seems pretty SFW unless you're playing Cards Against Humanity. evil grin WL

18.) Something that would be helpful for going back to school. I used sticky notes all the time in school! WL

19.) Something related to your current obsession, whatever that may be. I've obsessed with birds since I was 11. I've been obsessed with rainbows forever. I'm currently obsessed with sushi. THIS IS ALL THREE! WL

20.) Something that is just so amazing and awe-inspiring that I simply must see it. Explain why it is so grand. Hear me out! This baby can keep ice for DAYS. Sitting out in the sun for hours on end? NO PROBLEM! YOU'LL HAVE ICE AT THE END OF THE DAY!! Seriously, Thermos needs to pay me for how much I rave about their stuff. My water bottle has still had ice in it after three days AND being refilled twice. No joke.

This beauty was made in OR.

fear cuts deeper than swords. She is my favorite character by far :)

u/THScam2009 · 3 pointsr/kittens

Protip: Start cheap. Cats enjoy making you spend money on them, only to bat whatever you bought under the couch, and never touch it again.

You're definitely going to want a scratching post. a.) cats are going to scratch because it releases endorphins and keeps their claws nice and strong and pretty, and it's another way of territory marking b.) If you don't give them something to scratch, they will scratch what you didn't give them to scratch, i.e. your bed frame, your couch, your table legs, your couch cushions, your own legs, your Aunt Phillis, etc. Point is, I've never had a cat that didn't use a scratching post. You may have to show it to them a few times to get them used to it, but get something with a toy attached to the top, (like the one in the link below) and as soon as they start playing with it, and get their claws stuck in that glorious scratching post, they will fall in love with it.


This also takes care of your bed desire. If she/he doesn't like the bed (or the scratching post), then hey, you've still got a scratching post, (or a bed). My bet is, that once they start playing with that little toy on top, they will pass right out in that bed. (Also has some really great reviews.)

As for the cat tree, personally, I've always wanted one, but I've never had room for one. Try out something small like the thing I linked above, and see how they like it, and how they interact with it. If they like it, then you may want to spend some more coin on a big cat tree. If they never even look at it, then you might want to consider saving the money.

Hope this helps.


u/specialgreenonion · 2 pointsr/RATS

I bought a lot of it off zooplus but you can find pretty much all of it on Amazon! Here's the links:

Carrot treat holder/boredom breaker

Hanging boredom breaker

Boredom breaker net

Wooden stairs/platform - this one isnt exactly the same as the one I have but very close

Wooden bridge #1

Wooden bridge #2

Grass mat

Bird perches or lava ledges, whichever your prefer.

Wooden cabin #1

Wooden cabin #2

Wooden cabin #3

Hanging bridge/ladder

Boredom breaker garland

Silver and pink sputniks but they seem to be unavailable at the moment - keep checking back

Pink and purple sputniks on zooplus

The triple purple/pink hammock I made myself with some fleece and cotton. If you search "diy honeycomb hammock", you'll find lots of easy tutorials on how to make them! It's definitely a bit too small, it was my first attempt. Go bigger than you think you should is my advice lol

This is the fleece I use as bedding

And this

Anytime I get new fabrics, I wash them, dry them, then freeze them for 24-48 hours. I also freeze any new wooden toys, products etc. Prevents a mites problem!

Sputniks are a bit hard to find on amazon, they only come in the smaller sizes it seems like. Zooplus only ships across the EU but Im sending the link anyway in case youre in Europe!

Also it took me around 4 months to build up a collection of this stuff, dont feel pressured to make your cage look pretty or to have lots of stuff all at once! All that matters is your ratties have what they need, and then you can build up from there :)

u/EatYourPills · 2 pointsr/evilbuildings

I don't know about this particular one, but I got a really nice one on amazon for $90 and free delivery to my house, which was nice because it weighs a lot. Mine has little rooms with openings like this one but it also has open platforms that they like a lot better. My three cats love it.

u/noxyrew · 2 pointsr/cats

Hi! Just wanted to add:

Best thing I ever invested in, was a cat tree! My cat absolutely loves it and I can't image our lives without it. Cats feel much more secure in their environments when they have higher ground they can get to. Here is an amazon link to a great brand: https://www.amazon.com/Armarkat-B5701-57-Inch-Tree-Ivory/dp/B003BYQ100/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1474819240&sr=8-2&keywords=armarkat+cat+tree

Also, to combat an litter box issues, I would suggest investing in a nice litter pad for accidents or for tracking litter out of the box. I just bought this one (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01AUU90IW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). It is pricey, I know, but it has made the clean up process so much easier.

Also, please please please invest in some quality cat food. I might get some flack for this from other Redditors, but quality cat food makes a difference (I have found that there is a heated debate about dry versus wet food and whether brands really make a difference). I have chosen to err on the side of caution and buy high quality food to prevent any future health problems. From the research I have done, a combination of dry and wet food is best, and it is not ideal to simply provide dry food for cats, since cats need to get water intake from the food they eat. Here is a good article suggesting some good brands (http://www.reviews.com/cat-food/).

u/OhGodAGirl · 1 pointr/guineapigs

Guinea pigs, much like humans, have food preferences! You want to stay away from the root vegetables - potatoes, spring onions and the like. Here is a food list of what is good, and what's not for pigs!

If they haven't been fed vegetables before in the pet store, start them off with a bit of grated or zested vegetables - paprika (capsicum in some countries), carrot, even some iceberg lettuce (iceberg lettuce is water disguised as a vegetable; great for treats, not great for nutrition!). Once they've gotten used to eating, you can start chopping up into pieces, then slices, and so on and so forth.

This was the hutch I got for my guinea pigs, but I hate it. The size is terrific, but the quality is terrible - cheap fiber board with shitty fittings. But that will give you an idea of the size you'd like. Ideally something with a 'double decker' is best - you can stow it in a corner without it taking up too much space.

My set up is currently this. Sorry for the shitty quality: only got an iPad to take pictures with. Here is the inside view of the top half complete with nesting box, and here is the bottom half, complete with fuzzy wombat.

So, the 'litter' I have up top is just some generic small mammal litter; I live in Sweden, so it's not a brand that most people would recommend. Any kind will do, or even kitty litter. I line the bottom of my trays with it, then put a piece of fleece (I use VetBed, which you can buy here from Amazon, and cut to size) over the top. What the fleece does is 'wick' the urine underneath, to be absorbed by the kitty litter/absorbing material, leaving the fleece dry and the poops on top. Then I just vacuum up the poops every day and ta-da! Cleaning is done.

Once a week I go through and check underneath the fleece for wet bedding. My pigs are toilet trained, so they do their business in a dedicated litter box, so generally there's not a lot of waste.

The fleece is also machine washable, and reusable, so it cuts down costs a lot. You don't have to use kitty litter - I tried towels before - but I find the litter a little easier to manage. With towels, you need to wash them every day or two, and they can get quite funky.

The hay gets...messy. I always find a strand here or there, even if the rest of the house is sparkling clean! But hay, it could be worse (oh-hoh-hoh...).

Guinea pigs love to hide. You want to buy them lots of hiding spots - ideally, your cage should have a nesting box (a sort of separate room), and then you'll want to pick up little wooden houses off Amazon or your local pet store for pigs. I use this kind, but really any one will do. It gives your pig a place to hide as well as something to gnaw on.

u/letawookieewin7 · 5 pointsr/CatAdvice

I have two cats. One is a six-year-old male who I got from the Humane Society about four years ago. The other, a twelve-year-old female who I also got from the Humane Society about 5 months ago. My six-year-old male is gentle and seems to be okay with other animals. Introduced them slowly. He was okay with her after just a few days, but she would hiss and swat at him. It's now been five months and she still doesn't like him, but they are now able to co-exist. He generally avoids her and while I wish they were buddies, it just isn't going to happen. If he happens to get too close, she might still swat/hiss, but it's nothing that will really hurt him. They often lay in the bed together, but at opposite sides of the bed. She wears a calming collar (this type) and it does seem to help her mood. She can be affectionate with humans, but she can get quite anxious sometimes. You can also get the calming stuff as a diffuser or spray. Using the calming stuff, she tends to be less territorial and lashes out at him much less. I'd recommend that.

Also make sure to give them their own places where they can hideaway from one another; for example, I have a cat tree in my living room, a cat bed under my bed, a little cat bed in one of the windows, and a little cube thing the cats can crawl into to rest/sleep. I also have two automatic feeders set up beside one another, and they both are always side-by-side when eating...but only b/c they have to be b/c it dispenses the food at the same time.

I wouldn't worry too much though. Worse comes to worse, the most common result is they might not like each other, but they will at least learn to co-exist. My six-year-old male cat still seems generally happy and although she can be mean at times, I think he's just fine. Just give it time, and I think it'll be fine. Good luck!

Here's a photo of them: https://photos.app.goo.gl/u9CYLstMMfD83mDo6 (six-year-old male bottom, female on chair).

This is honestly the best way to stop being CF! I have fur babies myself and they are great.

Make sure she has something to claw and climb on, or she will claw your furniture. I have one kind of like this, and one of these. They help a lot. If you can't afford them, there are alternatives. :) And lots of toys. Things they can bat around, ones that look like fishing poles, that kind of thing.

Good luck!! Post pictures!!

u/Thecatcountess · 6 pointsr/blogsnark

I’ve been there! Here are my ideas:

Maybe a glowing led dog collar or a reflective dog vest for night walking? A dog raincoat is nice to have in the rainy months.

Pet beds always seem to need replacing.

I know you said she has a good vacuum, but one year I bought my parents a roomba for pet hair. I also bought them an eye vac because they sweep their kitchen so frequently and I thought it might save them from having to bend over so often.

You could buy ornaments with their names on them or pictures if she doesn’t already have them. You could also consider having pet portraits made by an Etsy artist or from r/artstore & r/hungryartists .

I’ve purchased catnip bubbles after seeing many internet cats enjoying them. However, my old tortie was NOT impressed. She prefers an actual plant that she can murder. You could grab a few plants. Heated cat houses are also a thing.

When all else fails, animal lovers generally seem to appreciate donations in their honor to animal welfare charities. Good luck!

u/rabidstoat · 1 pointr/cats

I'm a fan too. I and several friends have this big bad boy, but they have smaller ones too. Actually, I have a smaller one of theirs upstairs and the bigger one downstairs. They aren't the most stylish but they get the job done.

Mine have stood up pretty well. The smaller one is a bit less steady than the bigger one, probably because it has a smaller base compared to height. It also probably wasn't put together as well.

I wouldn't call them the sturdiest of cat trees, though. Mine have held up relatively fine, except that the sisal has come unwrapped on one of the posts. And though the mice-on-a-string on mine have held up surprisingly well despite getting beat up routinely, most everyone else I know have had their mice strings break from cat abuse.

Still, they're my favorite, they are relatively cheap for the size and my cats seem to love leaping about them. They are second only to window perches for things that my cats enjoy.

u/fluffy_cat · 2 pointsr/dogs

I have had a cat for the last 13 years and we only recently got a puppy. At first the cat was scared and nervous, he hid upstairs and acted strangely for a while. Eventually, the cat got used to the puppy being there and started being aggressive and dominant towards the dog. The dog soon got the idea and started leaving the cat alone.

Now our pup is 7 months old and he and the cat tolerate eachother pretty well. The cat has adapted by spending more time on our counter, which we have had to allow, meaning he can be fed in peace and can escape the dog if he likes. The dog seems to like the cat and can get pretty excited to see him, but the cat can keep the dog at bay by hissing.

We are now comfortable with leaving the two alone in the same room for an hour or two, but they certainly aren't friends yet.


In response to your post, I think having a dog-free zone is an absolute necessity. If your cat can't escape from the dog to feel safe, I think they are much more likely to be aggressive. As well as potentially setting aside a room, also think about some kind of cat tree so that the cat can get used to being around the dog but be safe from being chased.

Naturally, this all depends on how relaxed your cat is. Some cats will be very tolerant of an excitable puppy but ours has probably got a bit too used to being away from threatening children/other animals.

u/EmeraldLight · 1 pointr/cats

Purchased on Amazon.ca for an, imho, amazing price. Shipped in a week flat, free shipping. Yay.

I read a review that stated the mouse only lasted a day. Mine wasn't even fully assembled, the platform the mouse was attached to was still sitting on the table, and my damn cat (Pickles) chewed it off the string and ran. Typical.

The tree itself is amazing and quite decently built. As you could see, my cats loved it before it was even fully assembled. The only cat missing is my huge orange and white DLH, Apollo. He gets scared when "stuff" is happening.

The tree is covered in an insanely soft "faux fur" that's glued to the wood, unlike cheaper trees where it's only wrapped around the wood. This means it's not going to slip around as my cats launch themselves off the platforms.

It smells very new when you get it, and it sheds a lot initially. But after a quick vacuum, all was well! Of course, the smell will go away eventually.

So yes! So far, I love it. Ask me again in a few days, hehe.

u/mobscura · 4 pointsr/cats

You can say "No" or "Down" sternly when your cat goes somewhere you don't want him. You'll have to pick him and move him several times while you're saying this to get the message across.

Cats love to climb, so get him a tall cat tower and encourage him to use it. Pet him on it, give him treats/catnip while on it, etc.

Sleeping? Cats will sleep wherever they damn well please.

Claw trimming: Whenever you're petting/playing with him, massage and touch him paws gently. This will get him used to having his paws handled for trimming. Use a trimmer like this, and I recommend doing it when he's feeling lazy and sleepy. Gently push the claw out to trim it. Here is a good claw-clipping guide. You can always ask the vet to demonstrate if you're feeling unsure.

Handling the sand: Just scoop the lumps with something like this, put them in a plastic bag, tie the bag, throw it away, and wash your hands.

My goodness we could be twinsies. We seem to have the same taste in cat trees for one thing. I don't know about you, but I picked that specific tree because my little guy likes to explore high spaces, and loves hiding in boxes. So between the height and the enclosures, it seems perfect.

I just got this cat tree for my cats. They love it! I think it's of a pretty good quality, and if they rip it up at all, I can fix it quite cheaply and easily.

You seem to have very similar tastes in video games as me, so I would recommend either the Mass Effect Series or Rune Factory 4. I haven't played Rune Factory 4, but I've loved the other games in the series and I think you might also really enjoy it!

I'll link you the ones I've had that I can find...

The go pet 72" tree has been our longest lasting one, looks to be $77. It has the stupid ramps, but overall is a pretty good design imo. My cats have not been interested in the lower "condo", but one does use the upper condo.

This is our most recently bought tree, the armarkat 74", which I don't recommend. It's not sturdy: the base is very small, and the two posts in the top half are right on top of each other.

I'll hunt around and see if I can find the model one of our cats peed on found it! It was also an armarkat. If you look at the picture, see that platform on the lower right, with short post and mini platform on it? Yeah that cracked in half pretty fast, it's only supported on one side. One of my cats also peed in the hammock, but she really loved sleeping in it until then.

u/sluttylunalovegood · 1 pointr/CatAdvice

My cat loves this toy. He plays with it independently so he is much less needy when I get home from work. Cat towers also keep cats occupied because they love to climb. You can also keep him entertained with a feeding puzzle like this one. You seem to have a good play schedule, but maybe your cat just needs more mental stimulation! I understand you need to respect your roommates space, so hopefully adding some of these things into the cats life will help!

u/Neebat · 1 pointr/cats

I'd suggest starting off with something more like a 5- or 6-foot tree.

For example, this is about $100 including shipping.

Look for platforms that have railings. My cats won't sleep in a place where they're worried about rolling off. I'm hoping the hammocks on this new one serve the same purpose.

Also, cats seem to disregard the first 2-3 feet of the tree from the floor up. Even the kitten goes straight off the second level on this tree, and ignored the bottom house on the old one.

If your cat is declawed, that makes a HUGE difference (and it's a very bad idea.) I've never gotten a declawed cat to climb, even when structures should have been good enough.

Otherwise, if you're building your own, I'd suggest nothing but verticals and maybe a ladder for the first 3 feet. (Healthy cats will ignore the ladder, but kittens and the elderly might use it.) I've been amazed how much my cats want to be UP VERY HIGH. And that's why I got the 8-foot tree. I've got one that will happily hide out in the ceiling if she can find an opening. (We had a leak, so there was a hole.)

Put it near a window or in a central place with a nice view. Cats LOVE being able to watch the world.

u/theRacistEuphemism · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Lol, I got this one but my cat is small and slim (9lbs). When I bought it, I was also living with a bigger and clumsier 13lb cat and he liked it too, but I don't know how well it holds up to any bigger. Back then it was against a wall and would shake a bit when the 13lber jumped on it. It's free standing now and doesn't shake when the 9lber jumps on it, but generally speaking she's always been a better and more graceful jumper anyway.

Agreed on the Armarkat brand trees. I bought [this] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003BYQ1K0/ref=oh_details_o08_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) for my cat and she absolutely loves it. Easy to assemble, reasonably priced, and fast delivery are all huge bonuses as well. Now my cat goes 3 places; her bed in my room, the food area, and the tree.

If you would like him to be an outdoor cat, you'll want to make sure he has a good cat house. Maybe a heated one for cooler weather like this one

K&H Pet Products Outdoor Heated Kitty House, Olive, 20W https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004ZJOH06/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_YEG3Cb41B3XVZ

Or this one

K&H Pet Products Outdoor Kitty House Extra-Wide (unheated) Olive/Black 26.5" x 15.5" x 21.5" https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01ECC8CV0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_5GG3CbWTZWNQ8

There are a ton of different ones, so even if you don't need something heated you can find a good weather proof option. You also want to look for a way to keep food out for them, but not out for the entire neighborhood, so think about that as well. I'd also suggest a cat water fountain, so that they always have access to a fresh water source. Standing water inside can get gross, but even more so outside.

These things are a bit expensive to set up, but it'll mean your pets will be safe and comfortable while also saving your apartment.

u/xosir · 2 pointsr/cats

I like it. It's sturdy if you screw it together tight. The only thing I don't like is that it's not a real carpet material, but a fuzzy fabric. Gracie still loves it though. A lot of others on this thread have it and have said they made some modification and liked theirs too. Looks like the average lifespan is about 2 years, which is totally worth the price.


u/dare_dick · 6 pointsr/gifs

I bought 5 different scratching posts. 3 next to my couch and in front of places she used to scratch, 2 next to where she sits in the living room. She even likes to scratch one my suitcase in the bedroom, which I'm perfectly fine with it. I even brought it to the living room next to the couch.

She doesn't like any of that. Catnip doesn't have any effects on her either. I tried to pursue her with laser to shift her attention to other posts. She would scratch them for a bit then she walks away. :D

I love my cat and I'm not complaining in a bad way. I'm just trying to figure her out. That's all.

Edit: those are the posts I bought from Amazon

I am not shaming you or putting you down for your efforts so please don't take this as such.

A lot of what's on your list is superfluous and unnecessarily costly. You could service a lot more cats with a lot less money if you "aimed" better.

For example, those outdoor shelters. You have this one listed. That's a single shelter for $53. You can build at least two shelters of the same volume for the same money: A cardboard box ($2.50) wrapped in heavy-duty plastic (3 @ 59¢, $1.78), lined with sheet foam insulation ($14.98 per sheet = 8 2'x2' panels @ $1.87 each, 6 panels to insulate box = $11.24), with holes cut on either side, clear plastic ($9.98, cut into six roughly-2' squares, two squares per box = $3.33) over the openings, and a moving blanket ($4) for comfort. Add a can of spray foam insulation ($3.78) to "glue" the insulation together and seal the gaps. With that formula you can build a shelter of the same size for $26.63, and that assumes you don't have ANY of those materials on-hand already.

Feral cats also don't need sardines in water or a grooming cat toy, or for that matter pretty much any of the canned foods. They'd be better off with dry food; it lasts longer (less spoilage) and doesn't attract other animals as much. Forget about anything that requires power, like that "heated water bowl", unless you intend on luring the cats closer to your home in which case your neighbors might have something not-nice to say about that.

Cats are excellent survivors. Give them a place where they can be protected from the elements, harness their own body heat, and have a little nosh and they'll be fine.

Cool yeah, thanks. I edited my above post later and included the product link. Surely it's fine with these positive reviews.


u/hellosprocket · 1 pointr/cats

The image of filing a cat's nail is just adorable, for some reason :)

We've had a few scratchers over the years that the cats have really been into:

This cat tree was a big hit and has lots of scratching posts. Both cats also love this bed - they usually give it a good scratch and then settle in for a nap!

u/slimsag · 13 pointsr/CatSlaps

The cat tree is this one: amazon link

I have one, and honestly they are not very good. The sitting areas at the top are super wobbly / don't really feel stable, even a lightweight cat will cause them to wobble. The wood is a low quality particle board like a thick cardboard. The carpet is a thin felt that provides almost no cushion.

I have two of these other ones and love them, though: link. I'd highly recommend those.

u/BackLeap · 201 pointsr/aww

That's awesome! If you have the room, I would love to get Sunny a kitty condo if you are open to it. I've done this before with previous accounts, I'll post a link if I can find one just to make it more legit. Just PM me a mailing address, and I can use your reddit name.

u/Nistune · 3 pointsr/StartledCats

I also have this cat tree and ours love it. But we do have small cats.

Our tripod cat absolutely loves the basket thingy, and it's her main sleeping place, however our other cat who is slightly bigger doesn't like it. They both enjoy perching on the middle level, and our bigger cat loves the very top perch.

I would say it's good if you have medium/small cats but if you have huge boys parts will be a squeeze.

Here it is for anyone looking for it.

u/banana_kat · 6 pointsr/Pets

If you get a second cat you've got to name it Tomato.


No advice on whether or not to get a second cat, but on entertaining your cat when they're home alone:

-Leave the TV on Animal Planet

-Get some treat balls or puzzles to hide in different places around the house every day

-Rotate which toys are out instead of having them all out at once. That way they stay new and exciting.

-Get your kitty some nice window perches so she can look out the window.

u/LollyHutzenklutz · 2 pointsr/StartledCats

If you’re still checking this post, here’s the link! It’s $65 (plus shipping if you don’t have Prime - thankfully I do), which is pretty good for the size and quality. My cats don’t use the hammock or tiny cubby holes, but otherwise really love it.

u/trampledbyriley · 2 pointsr/entwives

Adopting an adult cat is awesome! I personally have to use an acrylic bong, because my cat is the shove-it-off-the-counter-for-attention type, but that's just me, and it doesn't bother me. She likes to sit with me when I smoke, so I just blow it away from her. She's gotten smoke a couple times but it doesn't seem to bother her.

Also, I recommend this cat tree if you get a smaller cat. Ours was sturdy and didn't wear out very fast at all, ordering a new one.

u/socialpronk · 1 pointr/AskWomen

Little off topic, if your cat is throwing up regularly and not due to any specific medical issue it's often just from eating too fast. I scatter kibble across the floor, or put it in a food dispenser, to slow them down. The Petsafe Fishbowl, a cut open tennis ball, Busy Buddy Twist and Treat, or similar food toy. Or there are neat towers like this one that my cats love.

u/dnf007 · 6 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

I had good luck on Amazon. I've bought this one and Go Pet Club Cat Tree.

My little dude loves sitting on these and staring out the window at birbs and squirrels.

u/sciamatic · 7 pointsr/Atlanta

She should be fine until the 20th. Also, if she's just growling and hissing at your cats, then they'll probably adjust to each other in a couple of weeks.

But there are also heated cat houses on Amazon that're great for feral or stray cats. I have this one. It is NOT waterproof, so don't leave it uncovered, but it's great for outdoor kitties.

It's really great but the little house and basket are too small for Oliver (13 lbs). He fits on the top and the middle platform and loves it. My kitten uses the rest.

u/val319 · 1 pointr/Eyebleach

Actually many posts aren't even wood. I've had 15-25 lb cats end up with Eiffel towers because the posts are cardboard and plastic. I called to buy a replacement and was told it was $20. I ended up getting round wood posts (cutting and drilling holes) and untreated sisal rope and wrapped it. I like the velvet fabric. I hate sherpa. I upgraded to 2 nicer ones at Christmas. She loves the one and doesn't care much for the second one. There are reasonable ones on Amazon. This one was nice but you can't remove the ladder (it won't be stable). Go Pet Club 62-Inch Cat Tree https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007UI47PY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_wAgzDbD4TSMB9 the top post is plastic and cardboard and will have to be replaced if you have a big cat later. The basket was good to hold toys.

u/DevilishlyDetermined · 2 pointsr/bengalcats

Amazon has tons and tons of great cat trees.

I purchased this one: Go Pet Club 62-Inch Cat Tree https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007UI47PY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_JDpODb823M01Y

Pretty reliable and relatively easy to construct. My 10/11month old bengals both go nuts on it daily.

u/WorldsSaddestCat · 3 pointsr/cats

Congrats on the new kitty!

Stuff I can think of:

  1. Interact with your cat a lot to get it socialized.

  2. Get a nice comfy bed, some toys, and a litter box. The. rule of thumb with litter boxes is to have one more box than cat. So, one cat and two boxes.

  3. Clean the litter boxes at least once a day.

  4. Find a good vet and emergency vet in your area.

  5. Get a scratching post if you value your furniture. I had one of [these](TRIXIE Pet Products Baza Cat Tree https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0027IVL6K/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_zxw6AbS76SMKJ) and my cat loved it.

  6. Don't cheap out on food. Nutrition is important.

  7. Consider pet insurance.

    I'm sure there's more stuff but that's all I can think of right now.
u/moonrocks415 · 20 pointsr/MEOW_IRL

I have a cat that is a larger breed had the same problem with free feeding from a bowl. She was getting a few pounds overweight, losing energy to play or do anything and vomiting all over the carpet on a near daily basis after speed-eating (gross!)

I bought one of these bad boys about a year ago and ever since my cat eats slower and has drastically cut back 95% of the vomiting. Not only that, she has dropped a few pounds and is wayyyy more active around the house. Plus I think they enjoy playing with it lol. You might here little clinks throughout the day as the kibbles hit the next level, but overall a great stress-reducing investment for me.

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/LifeProTips

We had purchased this one.

It's slightly smaller than what they claim, which is a good thing. We were surprised at how good the quality was for $100 or so. It took like 10 or 20 minutes build time.

u/theyear1200 · 6 pointsr/Pets

Your best bet is to feed him his meals in some sort of food puzzle.

I alternate my scarfing stray between these:

Food Tree

Fun Board

Treat Ball

And then sometimes I feed him pellet by pellet by literally just throwing his food down the hall for him to chase. He loves this, it gets him some exercise, and it forces him to eat much more slowly.

We really like the feaandrea cats trees on amazon! We got this one for our boy. We’re already thinking about getting this bigger one next and putting the smaller one in the living room since he loves being on the perch so much. I find it very sturdy and there is also a strap that you can screw into the wall.

u/the_dropout_ · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

These are all super similar to cat trees I've made:




Window hammocks are also pretty swell. And you can buy grass patches online!! If you decided to do a cat tree (which will give you lots of options for height and hidey holes) make it yourself!! Store bought ones are generally crap. All you need is PVC pipe, nails, boards, and carpet scraps (which can often be gotten for supa cheap at carpet installation places)

Is it this feeder? I've used it when my cats were kittens and we were free-feeding. This allowed both our cats to eat their fill. They've both mellowed out and learned to share both dry and wet food so we don't have to worry as much anymore, but maybe the feeder will help!

u/justanotherkatlady · 1 pointr/cats

Would a slow feeder toy be a possibility? I let my cats forage food out of one and it's legit just sit and use one paw to get the food out.

This is pretty much my cat arsenal. Not sure if these will work with your man but figured i'd put them out there. I also buy cat sticks for them to chew on but usually you have to supervise them because big chunks get chewed off.

The cat sounds like it's bored and has pent up energy. Pets are like little toddlers: If you dont entertain them, they will do it themselves and it can be destructive at times. Here are some things you can help redirect and expand say energy:


Perches/things to climb/scratch

These are just some ideas. Also go to your local pet store. If the cat doesn't like the new toy, usually they will let you return the toy for a full refund.

We already have 2, and two others that we tried and she figured out really quickly.

The problem with most of them is that she is capable of figuring out the "human" way of opening them/disassembling them, and somehow does it. Like, she's figured out how to operate latches and twist things that are twist-drop-locked into place.

These two, she just flips:



This one, she can remove the lid, and she can also slide the shelves around inside so the pop off and slide all the food out.

u/catscraftsanddnd · 2 pointsr/cats

It's not uncommon for cats to not chew their food, but crushing it could help.

Another cause of the vomiting might be that she is eating her food too fast. Scarfing food too fast or scarfing/then drinking water can cause cats to vomit (drinking after eating causes the food to absorb the water and swell in size).

Observe how fast she is eating, and if that's the case look into getting her an enrichment feeder. It forces the cat to slow down on their eating.


You can also make DIY feeders.

I actually just bought this one off amazon a few days ago, scheduled to get here friday, it appears to be the same one OP has.

$87 dollars right now so not cheap but not ~$200, hang around reddit long enough and you'll learn to never trust anything /u/Epiccyndaquil says

I had the same issue with my cat eating a lot and puking afterwards. My other cat never had this issue. I bought them a CatIT Food Tree and it really helped slow them down and also keeps them busy!




So far it has been working great for me with the occasional puking here or there from hairballs. Not so much from Food anymore.

I have 4 cats, indoor/outdoor. 3 are overweight (15-18 lbs) and the other is on the small side. I've STILL managed to get the three big ones to lose weight while not starving the small one (4-5 cans of wet food on-demand through the day, and a kitty torture tower for their dry food, which always has something in it. If they do start begging for dry, we'll add one cup to the tower and they have to work for it. It's a slow process but it is working!

My cat was starting to get more fat than fluffy, I bought a puzzle feeder and she has lost about a pound and a half in the past year or so. In addition she isn't throwing up near as much from eating to fast because she has to pull what she wants to eat out of the feeder. I used to feed her about a cup of food a day, now with two cats I throw food in whenever it's empty, maybe once a day? They just bat some out when they're hungry, I never have to worry that they're starving.

My girlfriend's two cats go ballistic if there isn't food available at all times.

My cat eats til she pukes, too. To try and prevent that, we bought two puzzle feeders. My cat also tends to harass us until we go with her to monitor her eating.

Since we got the puzzle feeders, our cats eat a lot less food overall. But mine still needs a chaperone.
