    Are your cats male? most of those specialty foods are bullshit. One of my boys was having urinary issues despite him being on strictly wet food so my vet pushed this stuff that's like 3 dollars per can for urinary health. As it turns out, the food I was giving him had rice as one of the ingredients and I guess he's just sensitive to grain. Switched him to the president's choice wet food and he's been fine ever since at 50 cents per can. The big issue with male urinary tract problems is that cats aren't supposed to live off of dry food and so their thirst drive is quite low. They need to get water from food.

    Most vets know absolutely nothing about pet dietary needs.

    I also remember you posting this. Losing a pet sucks, it's essentially like losing a family member. I hope one day you find another four legged friend.

    I have had dogs all my life. A Golden Retriever then a Border Collie were the first two that roamed our farm. Both of them have passed, but when my retriever died we bought an Australian Shepherd named Cash who is still alive and kicking.

    Within the last year my girlfriend and I have adopted two pups who were being fostered. One is a Black Lab named Harper, and the other one is a German Shepherd named Dixie. I consider all three of them a part of my family and are treated as such. I'll post some pics later on if I remember to.

    Have 2 cats and 1 dog.

    Leo, male cat about 10ishyears old. Exact age unknown since he was a rescue after he was thrown away as a kitten in a bag, in a dumpster, then fostered for years in several different places, adopted then returned, records lost etc before we (my wife and I) adopted him.

    Curry, female cat, 6 years old, adopted her as a 6 month old kitten to help Leo become more interactive. He was practically feral when we got him and it took him 6 months to do anything except sit in the highest corner of the room all day, until we got Curry. Seemed that he saw her interaction with us and finally decided we were trustworthy.

    Duke, male pit bull mix with something as dumb as a post. Again a rescue, age we think is about 7 or 8. Exact age and mix not known because of his rescue status. This dog has energy to burn, he will run for hours and hours and still want to run more.

    All I will say about anyone who wants to own a pet that currently doesn't, if you're looking for a dog or cat, get a rescue. Purebreds and all that bullshit is just silly. There's millions of dogs and cats available for rescue that people treated like disposable toys.

    Don't declaw your cats, and spay/neuter if not done already.

    If you want a dog, don't get the first one that looks cute, pick one that matches your energy level. If you're a high energy, lost of exercise type person, then getting a dog with a higher energy level is probably best, and be prepared to put a lot of time in training (not really training the dog, but training you how to deal with a dog).

    If you're a low energy person get a low energy dog. Getting a high energy animal as a low energy person will be a disaster.

    And cats are all crazy, but in a good way

    I had a snake when I was younger. Red belly snake. It looked more like a worm though.

    Very true. If you go to buy a dog and buy the puppy that is the most spunky and fun, be prepared to have the most energy-intensive dog of the litter. Next time I get a dog, I'm going to buy the one who's sleeping when I get there.

    Ive been thinking of getting a dog, but I live in a 650sq apartment and work 10 hour shifts. Ive heard bulldogs are pretty low energy and would be okay staying home for longer periods of time but they snore incredibly loud
