    We've rented 4 places over the years whilst having our 2 cats. It does limit your choice of rental but hey.. I love my cats and they're an important part of our life. Good luck finding a rental!

    They only eat dry whiskers as they refuse to eat raw or cooked meats

    Have you tried the all-in-one type dry foods, eg. Science Diet? They have ones for various types of cat (indoor etc).

    We have used the Science Diet one with our 3 indoor cats, and are now using the Royal Canin one (as they got sick of the flavour of the other).

    Lol! Chunder-kitties

    My little cat has a slight mental problem (vets words). Where she eats everything! Seriously - sticks, stones, string, toys, fluff, bugs, plastic, shoes! So she vomits ALL the time, but with obvious causes. The big cat either goes out in sympathy or tries it on as a play for attention.... Or just throws up because the sky is blue today!!

    In all the rentals I've lived in I've always had a pet irrespective of whether it has been permitted or not. I've simply moved the animal and its belongings prior to inspection. Have never had an issue. A pet is part of the family and shouldn't be discriminated against. So I've always had a pet in a rental.

    My cat only vomits if he has furballs and that is very rare, we give him catlax to help. I also have soft paws for him, which are claw protectors, they are on our puppy too and they are brilliant. We have all brand new leather furniture after renovating last year so it saves our furniture!

    I agree so much with an earlier poster about not getting a cat and leaving it outside, what so many people who do this probably do not know is the damage and annoyance it can cause other people. Our cat is purely indoors but the neighbourhood cats love to come to our house and cause massive tears in our screens, and cause much angst to our cat when they try and attack him through the windows and doors!

    My chucky indoor cats are on Royal Canin s/o I think from memory. It's a vet one cause one of my cats has Flutds and isn't allowed anything besides these dry biscuits.

    Dry food causes kidney and renal failure, diabetes, dehydration, gastrointenstinal upsets, UTIs and obesity in cats.
    It's very well documented but the ones who sell you dry food, and have their clinics and schooling funded by dry food companies, are hardly going to tell you that

    Good quality dry food, such as science diet, is the best food for your cats. Cheap food from the supermarket whether wet or dry is not the best thing you can give your cat!

    My mum is a vet & we've only fed our cats science diet or one of another couple of good quality foods whose names I can't remember atm. The pet food companies don't fund clinics or schools- occasionally you get a free mug or mousepad but that's about it! If in doubt....ask the vet what they feed their own cat and use that.
