With regard to pets' contaminated food, I'm planning to cook some recipes from my own kitchen for my lovely kitty.

Since many of us here are pet lovers, a lot of us here have cat(s). Right now, a new pet lover lady joined us lately. Her name is Sinni and she got a kitten. LOL Good for you hon!

Now, I am looking for recipes for cats that are simple, from ingredients that are already in the kitchen which cats love.

Even tho the brand I use for my kitty has NOT been among the menufood.com list.

CAUTION: The brand "Hills" has been added lately to contaminated pet food. I just wanted to draw your attention folks praying that all your sweet pets are SAFE & SOUND!

Any easy recipes for cats???

Just kidding.

When I lived in Ecuador, we used to make all of our dog food--it was mostly brown rice (keeps the protein) and corn, cornmeal. Probably you could also use soy protein.

Wow! A thread for kittens! I think this is great, Ras! Pets are therapeutic and that alone makes them deserve a thread!

So far Ive learned to relax so much with my pet! As I said she´s either playing, peeing, pooping or passing out. Sometimes she swirls and skips around the house as if she´s partying. I look at her and I loosen up, I realize HP´s dominion is larger than I can imagine.

I don´t cry much these days (years). But as I hadnt seen Fab and she didnt have a bell yet, I felt she might miss me since she is new in my humble shack. That feeling gave such a tight knot in my throat, I immediately realized after a long long time that I was still a human being. I had "feeings".

These pets are all about feelings. Mine, yours, theirs, everybody´s.

My Fab is a little naughty still but then shes just 4 m.o. and Im a new mom, can´t discipline so well. As in past years I was more of a book worm, I know better than to go by Spock´s theories, but rather by Pavlov´s. Positive / Negative reinforcement.

Right now Fab is sleeping on a towel on the floor next to me. She was on my lap but It was getting hot with the towel on my lap. (It´s a warm Fall still, opposite seasons in southern hemisphere.

I had to speak seriously with her today. She managed to turn off my PC by playing with the cables. My ESL student told me she can get hurt. So I hit her very very lightly on the nose, so she could tell the difference from a cuddle, and told her NO. I looked her in the eye and I also hit lightly the cables hoping she makes the connection.

Disciplining is a tough job. If anyone has proved suggestions, Im all ears.

Im lucky in other regards.
This gal was found on a city shopping center, has bathroom manners and knows cat food.

BTW, we´re in S. America so, well, I dont suppose we import pet food from the US!?

Hi, sininho,

Actually, it is a real timesaver if you buy the skinless boneless kittens.

I have a book somewhere by Dr. Pitcairn with tons of pet food recipes, but I can't find it tonight. I will post again when I find it later this week. (I'm helping with a prescribed burn at one of the parks, so probably won't be back for a day or more, depending on how it all goes).

You can look on amazon or google for it. I think the title is something like Dr. Pitcairn's book of natural pet care.

A note on disciplining cats;

It will be easier if you just stop trying and remove anything and everything they might destroy. Cats don't listen well.

However, if you must try to discipline your kitten, get a squirt bottle or gun and fill it with water (some people put a little bit of vinegar in it to make it more offensive to the cat - I find just plain water does just fine). Any time you catch her in the act of something bad, squirt her while firmly saying NO or make a loud sound (hissing, stomping your foot, banging something)...You HAVE to do this while the cat is engaged in the unwanted behavior - dogs and cats have little (that we can understand, anyway) connective/logical reasoning - they can't make the connection between an act and a punishment if the punishment happens after the fact. You MUST catch them in the act, punishment must be simultaneous, so that they make the connection - when I get on the counter, bad things happen....otherwise, they just know they are getting punished but don't know why.

That being said, I have a cat who chews electric cables - she once chewed through my hair dryer cord while it was plugged in - she got quite a shock and could have been severely injured. I thought that in itself would deter her from ever chewing on wire again, but in the years since she has managed to ruin a humidifier, a fan, and a printer cable wire. SO, if you kitten is showing ANY inclination that he/she likes to chew things like wires, make sure that you bind up any loose wires, tape them firmly behind a desk or to the floor or somewhere the kitty can't get to them. You can also try spraying some bitter apple spray on them to make them yucky to taste...but keep an eye on the little thing.

ROFLLLLLLLLLLLLLLllll oh WD you are funny!!! The poor kitty peeled and chopped in the blender. NOWAY! Reminds me of young funny co-worker who used to say that he would put a kitty in the microwave and then devour the poor cat. Good grief!

Sinn...glad you're enjoying the compay of your cutie kitty even if she's naughty. You will see...she will make you laugh more and more as time passes by.

Firm NO while looking her square in the eye will do the trick. This is how I do with my kitty when she does something naughty. Also, Zax's method's is a good one which I read in a book when I adoped kitty.

Talk to you later hon!

CM ...I will check out that link you mentioned. Thanks hon!

BTW...I once saw my neighbour giving his cat a spaghetti with tomatoes which he cooked for his supper. He devided it in 2 portions and gave the 2nd portion to his cat. Don't know if we can do that, but I would hesitate, lest she gets diarrhoea.

Ras: Don't know if I'd be feedin kitty spagetti. If she doesn't totally digest it then it may come out and be mistaken for worms. Not that an additional worming wouldn't hurt once in awhile.

WD: I'd think it much easier to have the kitty half frozen and then sliced thin, like they do the rolls of hamberger and stuff. I think tho to leave the bones in it might alleviate the need for toothpicks. You'd have instant toothpicking along w/ the meal. They combine everything these days.

For a full list of all the affected dog and cat foods go to
http://www.menufoods.com/recall
It will list the brand name. Click the brand name to see which of the subnames are bein recalled.

I think kittyfingers sounds good for lunch. (j/k)

WD,
Thanks for a nice smile on my day. kitties don't really agree with me. i'm a dog person, and there isn't a thread for that yet....

so far, at least for dogs, dry food is ok. we usually just feed dry and have an occasional can of wet. our wet food is now recalled. thankfully, i'm a hoarder and all seven of our cans on hand predate the contamination period (by a whole month). Anyway, I just fed one can tonight and am hoping for the best. will go to chicken and rice if i need to.

Well, ***MamaC*** and ***WD*** are pulling our kitten legs again! You, brats!

I was thinking of introducing Fab to tuna tonite, but I turned off the fridge (its acting crazy but Ill fix it) and dont wanna risk it. Would it be too soon at 4 months?

Fab is sleeping on my lap right now, stretched sidewyas, head hanging down. Not a care in the world...

I got the disciplining thing, I think. I mean, I can do it but not so sure Fab is behaving better b/c of it or just found something better to do than rip my curtain apart, for example. One reason she´s gone back to my bed is vanity. I caught her staring at herself in the mirror! Hey, "I" didn´t know I could do that! Wait, I see a dream bubble coming from Fab´s little head... It says, oh, lap, sweet lap!

Sininho:

How are ya honey? Been quite awhile since I've seen you here.

Ok, starting baby on food. Click the link and you can get a free Kitten E-Book from Science Diet. It will tell you development of your baby, when to start what, and has when shots, etc. are due and a record to keep them.

Enjoy your new baby.

Hey, Mama C, so thoughtful of you to help me out in this first out parental voyage of any kind. I find it strange, though, going into hte net for help when I remember the cats we had when I was a child. They practically fed and fended for themselves, coming home only to play!

One thing, could my kitty love me any more than she likes anybody that would give her a cuddle or food? Just curious, dont mind that at all. What counts is so far it has come back to me after being in other people´s lap...

hugs

Recipe for the night: NO pet food, right? I gave Fab some cuz I thought that´s why she wasn´t retiring for the night, and she´s all lit up (was playing with her shadow) partially cuz she slept while I worked... Now what? Sorry kiddo, gotta set my boundaries, I need my zzzz´s, blam, there goes the door...

Yeah Sini, you got the idea.

When we disciplined it was first... pick kitty up, look right into her eyes w/ the no no and tap her nose w/ your forefinger. Kitty will blink. The tapping was lighter or harder depending on the infraction. IF thumping did not work it was a squirt bottle. The one thing that totally irritates my husband about cats besides everything is if they get on the table or the countertops. For that they got a hand whooshing and they flew from the top of whatever they were on. Only took maybe 2-3 times and I've never seen one of my kitties back up on places she shouldn't be.

My mom trained her kitty where to sit and sleep. She put a towel on the couch and if kitty got off it she put her back and tapped her nose or the top of her head. Not thumped or flicked... tapped w/ your forefinger. That cannot hurt much.

Ya know you are right about one thing. I think about my kitty rules now and I've probably had 18 puffs, 35 blackies, 42 stripes, etc. We always kept the stray or unwanted litters. I do have to say tho that this cat is much better trained than they. My Sydney, named after Austrailia, sits on a chair next to me here at the computer and has to put her foot on my leg as if holding hands. lol. And dog lays here at my feet. My two most favorite family members. 🙂

I am planning to feed kitty a feast of salmon from my salmon tin on Easter Sunday. We usually cook salmon and the best one is a fresh one. Kitty loves all sorts of fish: tuna, salmon whatever as long as it comes from the sea.

She is Miss Fish!!!!

**Ras**,

What a treat you´re giving Kitty. You both will certainly have a nice meaningful day. Your faith, warmth and courage be blessed on this special day and be with you until you can renovate them.

*MamaC**,

My little cute brat was on my bed again. I was about to give up but decided another disciplining attempt. As I was looking her into the eyes and towering over her, my heart sank as I saw her all her fur stand up. It just seems she can´t help herself! She stayed there on the bedside hanging by the bedspread, looking daringly. Well, I worked all morning in the house and left for the afternoon. All times Fab was silent, I could check and she was on my bed, sleeping or watching herself in the mirror. Suddenly I peeked and couldn´t see her. She was further up the bed but not on my pillow. If it´s my bed stink and cleaning movements that bring her there, it´ll be hard to get her unused. She´s actually training me. As I sit at the computer, she looks up and meows. Then I put the towel on and she jumps and escalates onto my lap. After a few dances, she falls asleep.

Fab, who now is MFS with last name and all, is just so cute as she is too friendly! Some people came over, students, neighbors, and they all want to see her and hold her. I almost got jeaulous but when she started meowing to get onto my lap, it became time to take her to her small quarters.

Imagine I started saying she´d stay outside of the house. Then I just couldn´t imagine her under poor protection for sun, storms, heat and cold. Wimp me...

**MamaC**, you be sure to only peel chocolate eggs, rabbits AND cats this Sunday. Im concerned Fab´s already been emailing and may reserve a flight somewhere so she can double her Easter commemoration. Just in case you get a black and white cat, check and see it´s Fab 😉 She has half white half black front legs, white chest, face and inner ears and white hinter paws, the rest is black. You can take her to see Jigs cuz I would really like to know what she thinks of my cutie. Happy Easter to you, yours, to sweetest Jigs and who else comes along to look for egg nests. hugs
