Raw Feeding / Do you surface bake?

Self-explanatory.  I know some do, and some don't.  Just wondering if there is a general consensus.

They would lose one, yes, but they have lots of others.  The initial reason the pad was placed there was to prevent injury from someone getting a leg caught in the bars of the top of the kennel.  They do like that spot, but I think it's more important for Mouse to have a litter box that she feels safe using.

Worth a try then.  But..then they lose their resting place!  Silly7

They would lose one, yes, but the main reason I put the pad there in the first place was to prevent injury from someone getting a leg caught in the bars of the top of the kennel.  Years ago, I had a similar kennel.  I never dreamed that any cat would try to walk on it, but one day one did, and lost her footing.  Her leg slipped between the bars, she panicked, and when she tried to jump down, she broke bones.  So yes, a resting spot, but only as a secondary consideration.  I didn't really want to talk about it, as my stupidity still pains me - the leg never healed properly, in spite of the vet's best efforts, and the whole thing could have been avoided so easily. 

They do like that spot, but they have plenty of others, and I think it's more important for Mouse to have a litter box that she feels safe using.

Issues Of Concern / Well if you know anyone with a lawsuit against Evangers. . .
« Last post by DeeDee on January 22, 2018, 02:46:05 PM »
. . .they're probably not going to get any money at all.

Someone lied on the insurance application, and now the insurance company isn't responsible for payment. I see a bankruptcy in someone's future.

Evanger’s Caught Lying, Now Have No Legal Defense Against Lawsuits

Evanger’s Dog and Cat Food Company is in deep trouble again – this time for lying to their insurance company. Now their insurance company, Colony Insurance Co., doesn’t owe Evanger’s a defense against allegations its product contained a drug that is used to euthanize animals because the owner of Evanger’s made false statements – essentially lied – when applying for the insurance policy.

The lawsuit accuses Evanger’s vice president, Joel Sher, of lying on an insurance policy that he had never been indicted for or convicted of certain crimes. Therefore, the insurance company is not obligated to pay for any damages resulting from lawsuits against Evanger’s.

According to the suit, Mr. Sher denied ever having been indicted for or convicted of fraud or bribery. When he applied for coverage to Colony, he answered “no” to the following questions on the insurance company application:

“During the last five years (ten in R.I.) has any applicant been indicted for or convicted of any degree of the crime of fraud, bribery, arson or any other arson-related crime in connection with this or any other property?”

All the litter boxes here are elevated.  This is for my own comfort.  They've never had a problem with it, and last year I added a step stool for Mazy cat.  Jennie and Queen Eva leap over the stool going up and coming down,   Mazy cat uses it.

Using the box when the dog is in the crate might be a problem for Mouse though.

It's one of those big wire kennels with a pad on top to make another resting place for the cats.  The dogs are only in there when we have a repairman in or something like that, so it would very rarely be an issue.

All About Litter / Elevated litter box?

Does anyone else have a cat who might be happier with an elevated litter box?

I'm considering putting a small litter box on top of my dogs' kennel for Mouse.  I think she feels more secure when she can do her business in a higher spot, where she can look down on the other activities in the room.  I can honestly see this cat living up in the trees, because the less time she spends with her feet on the floor, the happier she is.

Grooming / Re: Has anyone used these gloves?
« Last post by Catgirl64 on January 22, 2018, 06:55:58 AM »
MC, I tried the boar bristle brush, and the cats loved it!  NO signs of incipient mats, not even in the cotton-candy fine hair behind Truman's ears, which leads me to believe that a proper diet is the best grooming tool of all.  He used to get little tangles there all the time, no matter what I did.  I knew that wet/raw food would improve their coats, but this is beyond amazing.
