My dog Romeo loves to play fetch and sometimes he tosses his own toys up and catches them.He is very hard on his toys and his raw hide bones both only last him a few days .I started tying an empty 20oz. bottle in an old sock and that solved both problems.Sometimes I pressure cook chicken bones for him and they just fall apart,I mix this with cooked white rice and some of the broth,the bone marrow is very good for them and I'm sure your Kitty would like this too.

I cook boneless chicken beasts in chicken broth -- boil gently until they fall apart ..... chop, mix with the broth, spoon into Snack ZipLock bags, pile those into a gallon size freezer bag.  Cat food ready to go ..... Peaches has started rejecting it but Badcat will usually eat it. 
Spoiled, bad monsters. 
I keep buying all sorts of cat food - trying and trying.   Peaches wants nothing but the correct brand of cat treats and I know I can't let her have that as a main meal.

Nancy, We sure try to keep our cats happy. My Sassy cat that died in Aug. would rub her face
against the can of her soft cat food and if it had a dent in it, she would not touch it. I woke up at
3:45a.m. this morning to a loud crash, 3 bowls of dry catfood and a bowl of water were scattered
all over my tiled kitchen floor. The 2 youngest cats were chasing each other. Good start to the day.

LOL Carol --- Here's a hint about the way Peaches and Badcat rule .....
When I cook those chicken breasts and get them all chopped up I toast a hamburger bun and have ONE incredible, delicious sandwich.  Oh, it's so good.   I eat cat food!!

My Jinx loves chicken and tuna....ummmmmm maybe he is part cat!!

I don't give Jinx rawhide bones or those pig ears because my Vet said that they can splinter and it's too hard on his intestines!

Some day I'll tell how I ended up getting these critters and what an amazing impact they've had on my life.

You should see him when I am cooking chicken or open a can of tuna!!  He will sit up and do this special thing with his paws and talk.  I just love him to pieces!!

When I open a can of tuna the cats come running and 2 fly up on the counter and the others
run into the kitchen. My flame point siamese[white cat] can run faster than the others, his
name is Speedi. I have some really good stories about him and his speed. You cannot help
but love them.

Sadly, our 16 year old kitty is sick with a liver problem along with his heart murmur. We have been medicating him for over a month and force feeding him with a syringe of liquid food. He still seems perky and his eyes are bright. The jaundice is gone, but we are having a hard time knowing that his days are numbered. Dusty is the sweetest, gentlest kitty and we will miss him when he goes.

I try to stick with the same foods, as it is easier on their tummies than trying new things all the time, although they do get the giblets from holiday turkeys after I simmer them to make broth for gravy!  My Siamese cat and one of my hounds come running when they hear us dispensing ice, however - Susie the basset hound loves an ice cube as a treat (as much as she loves doggie cookies!) and Zinny the Siamese wants me to pour a bunch of cubes in the water dish so he can bat them around and then have a nice cold drink!

Hi Carol ,I would love to hear your stories about your Kitties! I think most of us are animal lovers.I watched some horrible videos on You tube broad cast yourself.It was about euthanasia.So many Millions of cats and dogs destroyed each year because of irresponsible breeders and people not spaying and neutering their pets.People that can't afford to have an animal shouldn't own one,there are costs for owning a pet.Our local APL charge for dropping off unwanted animals it's a sixty dollar charge and double that outside of our county.Does this stop people?Some it does but I think that these kinds of people will just abandon these poor creatures on the streets and country roads.Last year when I was looking for another pup,I was talking with one of the Deputies and she told me they get an average of sixty dogs a week and more cats.Most of these won't find a home.This breaks my heart.

I always try to look for a kitty that needs a home when I have room for more.  Sometimes they just show up.  But I can't even walk by them when they are at stores, etc, waiting for a home.  It breaks my heart.  I do not think people should be allowed to have pets if they are not willing to "spoil" them.  You get so much in return.

we are a dog and macaw family. The bird eats what we eat, he's a good eater!
The dogs don't get many table scraps as we really discourage begging.
With 4 dogs, we buy Costco and have been happy with it.
We walk them and play catch with the youngest. The girls love to chew, so we usually have raw hides in the house.

A few years ago, I lost my cat of 17 years.  It was one of the hardest things.  I had him before I had my kids and he was definitely my baby.  He was a wonderful cat and I miss him terribly, but I am thankful for the years that I had with him.  Good luck to you.  I know what you are going through.

I lost my Jack Russell Sept. of 2009 and could not get over it. . It is so hard because they are family.  It is so difficult and heart wrenching.  So sorry.

I found a web site called fiascofarm.com  and I am going to make homemade food from the recipes on the site. There is a meatloaf and veggie type meatloaf.  This is for my dog, Cooper.  I think there are recipes for kitty (Cat) food also.  Cooper liked a recipe I made the other day with almost just veggies so I am going to, slowly, try incorporating into his diet the veggie meatloaf.

Gale - I don't give my dogs rawhide bones either.  They can choke on rawhide.  Nylabone is great for chewing and not harmful.  They have Nylabone at Walmart around the hanging toys.
