Sorry, that last sentence wasn't for you, but since you brought up the dry food point, I wanted to make sure that Dresperado knew that smile.gif

Thanks.

Oh! No problem! smile.gif

My cats love wet food. I feed my cats wet food once a day. At local pet store where I live I have not seen canned food that contain other than fish. I actually stopped feeding fish to my cat. Currently, in addition to dry food, I also feed my cats with boiled chicken mixed with rice once a day, for additional protein source.

This is why wet food is recommended. Cats don't actually have a thirst drive, hence why they hardly drink enough water to stay hydrated. I'm lucky that both my cats do drink water, but they are also on wet food so I supplement it.
They don't actually work. A lot of people still believe that dry food helps maintain a cat's teeth because they chew it and the kibble rubs against their teeth, but this isn't true. Cats do not chew. They bite and swallow.

I buy dental treats for my cats, but I know it's merely for my peace of mind, rather than the fact that they actually work. I maintain my cats' teeth by brushing daily whenever I can.

i use a wet towel to gently rub his teeth after his bath. he hates it but i guess this is easier than using a toothbrush.

Haha one of my cats loves her wet food. The other one doesn't eat enough of it, so I have her on kitten food right now for the higher calories. She's doing well anyway, and she prefers to graze on her dry food, so her weight has stabilized, though it's not where I'd like it to be, but she's not skin and bone and is active.

I feed them wet food twice a day, with dry food to graze.

I don't feed my cats any fish on a regular basis. Only in treats do I tolerate tuna and salmon, because it's a small amount they receive every day, particularly after teeth brushing.

It is a two person job. My partner holds the cat, and I use a pet toothbrush with pet toothpaste and scrub their back teeth. I also give them treats after, so they associate good things with it.

You don't need to bathe your indoor cat so often, if even at all smile.gif My vet suggested using gauze for a while, with the toothpaste on it, but I was getting bitten because of their instinctive chewing of the toothbrush/my finger.

I've fed my cats with wet food once (powercat / Friskies brand), and now they won't eat the biscuits until I fed them the wet food.

Any idea how to make them eat biscuits again? currently I mix the biscuits with wet food and let them eat but usually only left the biscuit and the wet food is gone sweat.gif

Hi,

My father-in-law asked me to get a 18kg pack of Sportsman's Pride cat food. Anyone knows where I can get it in the Kelana Jaya or Subang Jaya/USJ area?

Thank you for the assistance.

If your cat doesn't go outside, you really don't need to bathe him that often. It's not good for their skin anyway, and cats clean themselves.

How is a pet toothbrush harsh? It doesn't hurt the cat, and they can be trained to tolerate it.

Am comparing prices of cat food from multiple brands sold in an online store with physical stores around Klang Valley:
http://waggymeal.com

Are their prices reasonable? With all the cost of living going up, every Sen counts!

I converted some of the better brands (like Merrick) to USD and they are around US prices. I'd say that's reasonable.

Ordered a toy, canned food and wet food. They only accept Paypal and direct bank in for now. As I used Maybank2u and their acct is Maybank, so quite hassle-free when I do a transfer and notify them through e-mail. Called their cust service - quite professional and friendly too.

Let's see hw fast they can get the food over now.

Here you go. You can see the ingredient in the website. They have more than one product, so better give you the link, so you can check it out.

http://prodiet.com.my/products/Fresh-Tuna

I only have tried their canned food though.


Not many brand (premium ones) available in Malaysia though. Which probably the reason we associating the brand with the quality of the food.

Also, this is Blackwood that a lot of people here talked or asked about & most famous premium food here. I just want to hear your comment on the ingredient.

I tried feeding it to my kitten, but she doesn't like it.
I think is because it is a bit more hard to bite.

Nutrition-wise, I am no expert.
Anyways, in the ingredients, it did not mention byproducts [or I could have missed it], whereas Whiskas and Friskies do contain byproducts.

This is news to me. No idea cat with this kind of colours have special name, Calico. Yeah, since you brought this up, my cat also female. Also my tenant's kitten & recently deceased cat also female.

I also have another cats with different colour pattern that also all female. I wonder whether it also have special name. Below is the picture of one of them (old pic, now already grown up). I have three cats like this.

Your cat, I think looks like it is a male cat.
