Remember:  Ribbon, string and tinsel (icicles) are dangers to cats as when cats start chewing on them, the cats cannot spit them out so wind up swallowing the whole length.  This can led to a blockage or cutting of the intestines!  Keep all ribbon, string and other string like items away from cats.

Lilies are toxic to cats. Cats can die from kidney damage after eating even a small amount of a lily. Keep all lilies out the house! Don't put them on a high shelf- keep them out of the house!

Introducing/Integrating Cats

Post in here for help and information about integrating cats.
Cats are generally territorial and don't usually take well to the sudden appearance of an unknown cat in their territory. For the best chance of a successful outcome, always slowly introduce the cats to each other over a period of weeks. Never just plop a new cat in with other cats.

To learn how to integrate cats, read Integrating Cats.

Intercat Problems or Concerns

This may or may not include aggression. Cats who used to get along, sometimes wind up developing problems. Often this occurs when a younger cat reaches the age of maturity, and tries to take over as "top cat", or from a case of "redirected aggression". These problems can be helped!

Litter Box Problems

Please note that many litter box problems are due to medical reasons, such as a UTI, diabetes or kidney problems, so never automatically assume a cat has a behavioral problem when litter box problems occur!

Dealing with lost, stray or feral cats (such as TNR, befriending frightened strays, rescue groups)

Many stray cats make wonderful pets, if you give them a chance. Most were someone's pet at one time, but wound up homeless for some reason, having gotten lost or dumped out of their former home. Don't ignore the strays! Someday it could be YOUR cat lost on the streets and needing help.
