- ..first time cat owner.....nervous........scared.....several questions?
- Q: Brand new cat owner here. I went to the shelter today and I adopted myself out to a six and a half week old Maine Coon/Himalayan mix little boy. Pssst...I hated cats, I honestly did. I am reformed today, and I truly believe that I will prove to be a deserving slave. In all honesty, my neighbor and her cat turned me around. That cat absolutely adores her, and the way Abby looks at her owner, paws to be held, and then purrs when she crawls up in Judy's lap just melts your heart. When Abby did it to me a month ago.....stick a fork in me man, I was done. Abby spoke to me, somehow, and I can't explain it. The way she looked at me, her eyes just wrapped around my guts and squeezed, and it was as if she said to me "now you know you love me, I'm adorable, you need one of me!" I hated cats, and I did NOT want a pet.... I don't know what happened but I have considered it long enough that I am sure. I confess, I go to my neighbors house sometimes just to see Abby. I never connected with an animal, WHAT HAPPENED? So, thanks to Abby, I gathered all the necessary kitten paraphernalia and Judy took me to the animal shelter. There, I met Poison. Oh boy, was I hooked. There were twenty kittens in this room. He started staring me down all the way across the room. They all ignored me except for him. He came right over, screaming for me to pick him up, and stretches his lil body up at me with arms up as if to say "oh thank God, you're finally HERE, get me!" I was mesmerized. They named him...and it fits. He seems to like it, so it stays. WHAT DO I DO ABOUT FOOD!!!! I am so confused. Dry food, wet food...raw....how in the heck can I possibly make an informed decision? Everything written contradicts everything else! I know grocery store food is garbage, that much I get. What do you feed yours? Is it okay to mix a little dry with wet food until we settle on something more permanent? I am exploring the idea of doing the raw diet but I'm just not feeling as though I've researched that adequately enough to be comfortable doing it yet. I really don't want to screw this up. I want whatever is best "all around" like for all of that hair they say he's gonna have....his skin...eyes, insides, etc. And how do you feel about vitamins and supplements? What about the grasses they sell in the pet stores? Should he have this grass? I am a nervous wreck, I'm sorry. Poison is coming home in three days and I have no clue what I'm going to feed him. All I know for sure is that I have GOT to get him off of that off brand kitten chow they're feeding him mixed with some off brand wet food that looks like..well, it's just gross and I don't want him eating it. I've spent several hours with him in the past week and he doesn't like that food at all. I took Poison a can of Merricks...he about took my hand off over it. Poor guy acted like he'd never tasted real food. Ate every last drop. Think Merricks is okay until we decide what we're going to do permanently? That stuff is super pricey, but if it's really as good as my vet says it is, I'll keep him on that.BTW...this question cost me about 20 points. Yahoo posted bits and pieces of it no less than FIVE times. Sorry for all the BS.
- A: I feed my kitten Purina One Kitten Chow. It's what I fed all of my cats when they were kittens (six of them over the years, and one current kitten). As for wet food, I give my cat and kitten a little bit from a can of Friskies. It's not bad for them, but as my cat only eats a little bit and leaves the rest, I give it to them every couple of days. Basically, Poison will tell you what he likes when it comes to wet food, so I wouldn't worry about that. Just look for the cans that have chicken, beef, etc listed as the first ingredients. I wouldn't mix the foods, just leave a bowl of dry out for him whenever he wants it. If he's not hungry, he won't eat it. Merricks is fine for him.As for the raw food diet, I don't know enough about it to make an informed decision (like you) but I was considering giving my cats some as a treat at first. I'll be doing a *lot* more research before I do though. Good luck with your new kitten!PS be prepared to not get much sleep for the next few weeks ;)
