    Does anyone know why ceramic and metal food and water bowls are recommended, but plastic is omitted? Is there a problem with plastic bowls?

    I need a suggestion… like I am living in Pg in India and have lost my job… can I bring home a kittten…. I am very found of Cats but till date know cat has shown interest in me… as ya… I can feed my cat so thats not an issue… only thing is…. for a month or two I ll be jobless… and I will be at home… so I think its a best time to bring a kitten…. also atleast till 2-3 months I will be able to take care of him/her and can teach him certain things…. after that I ll probably start my new job… till that time I think… I will make my cat learn something… n develop some good habits like peeing in pot and eat the food…. after which I will search new job and ll have to leave my cat alone for 12 hours atleast…. Please share your views on my thought of bringing a cat….. tell me is the good/bad whatsoever is your suggestion.... n yup I have seperate single room

    My sister's cats don't use anything. They don't have beds, toys, or anything. They have 2 climbing resting things and a couple of toys, but they never use them ever. Whenever she buys them anything, they just ignore it.

    Don’t waste your money getting the cat a bed, they won’t sleep in it anyway. I’ve had cats for years and they’ve never slept in any kind of pet bed.

    I bought Winnie! I bought her from petco *which this vid was made by it* I am so proud I have this cute cat. But she catches lizards, grass hopers, and SHE KILLED MY FISH THAT ALMOST WAS GOING TO BE 5 YEARS. AND ALSO I BOUGHT THE FISH FROM THE SAME PLACE. R.I.P fish. 4 years. We pray you will be happy in heaven.

    Petco, i bought an bird from you for 20.00 bucks last year. When i got him, he was depressed and unhappy. Even when I fed him, changed his water and cage, had a huge assortment of toys that I rearranged each week, and I gave him a shower each month. I got another bird (pepper) and they were both depressed. I had to surrender them both to a bird rescue, and got feed back a month later to see that they both died of depression. So please tell me was it you or was it me that caused the depression?
