What type of cat do you have. What color etc. Do you have to feed yours a special diet becuase of it's breed? I used to have a persian kitty and loved her to death, but she would forever be hacking up hairballs. Some one finly stole her from me after a year of having her. Made me sad. I have had many cats since but nothing like her. HOw long have you had your cat?

I have 2 cats, both are just domestic short hair. My male cat is 2 years and he is an orange tabby and myfemale is 6 months old and she is pure black. i feed them the Iams multi cat food, because my male cat is overweight and this cat food is for cats of different ages and stuff and i have to admit since i started using this cat food he has dropped a pound in a month so he is getting there.

Hi there...wow, I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your cat and please accept my sympathies. One of my cats is a hybrid exotic cat known as a Bengal Leopard cat (1/2 domestic and 1/2 Asian Leopard Cat)--see avatar for photo. He has a rosette pattern on his body like a leopard cat. Because he is a hybrid cat his digestive system is more sensitive so he requires more of a specialised diet of raw or cat foods that are devoid of fillers found in most commercial cat food brands or he'll suffer severe bowel distresses. He is only 21 months young. My other cat is an Abyssinian/Tabby mix and he is a chocolate coloured. He also requires a specialised diet of canned or raw foods since very recently he was diagnosed with a rare lower urinary tract disorder. Dry foods is the leading contributing factor for cats who suffer from lower urinary disorders because it changes the cats natural urine pH to more alkaline where it should be more acidified (like cranberry juice does for humans). Canned foods provides additional moisture so this helps acidify the urine pH. Many people don't realize that dry foods were not created for the best interest of the feline health rather for the convenience for the consumer. Unfortunately more and more cats are suffering from lower urinary disorders as an end result so it's always best to offer both since dry is beneficial to scrape the plaque from the teeth and wet to hydrate a cat and balance the urine pH. Oooops...sorry got off track here. Anyhow, my aby/tabby is also 21 months young 2 weeks older than my Bengal.

My main kitty is a Forest/Tuxedo cat. The picture is on my profile. He is a large cat and definiety a mind of his own. The two boys are general shorthairs. We got them from a drunk that let his cat have litter after litter. They were too young, howver, they are large and fine and dandy now. Then there is Marco, he is shorthair too. We went to a lady's house and he picked us as a kitten. Merlin is a wild kitty, brownish, striped shorthair, he was found as a 6 week old with a broken leg. Veterinarian said that he would not have lasted much longer if we hadn't found him. He is a great teenager now. Merlin is 1 year old. Ozzie and the 2 brothers about 5 years old now. Marco is about 3 years old. Mine come and go and perhaps your kitty also just went and adopted someone new. They do tend to do that you know! Enjoy them while you have them. We got all of ours for free and would not spend big money on an animal that could disapper or die within a day, week, month! Sorry for you missing your cat! Long hairs are a favorite of mine. Always wanted a Himilayan.

Stumpy - My cat stumpy
I have a black and white cat with a stumpy tail, he won't eat fish that comes from a cat can so I have to feed him human types of tuna...

I have a Turkish Angora. She is gorgeous fluffy and pure white. I've had for about ten years now, since I was 14 so actually almost 11. I don't feed her anything special except for the food that she likes which is tuna flavored. She will refuse to anything that is not tuna flavored.

We got our cat two years ago and she was overweight for a cat her size. At the time she was 6 months and was already 10 pounds, so the vet put her on a special diet food and she is still getting that today. She has white and orange colors on her. I forgot the breed name for that.
