A couple of kitty questions...about microchips, tail behavior, table scraps, bonito flakes, and catnip.
I've asked a few questions
about Coal before. Now I just have some tiny concerns that I think could be easily addressed.
Microchip: Coal is microchipped. However, I used to be able to feel the little cylindrical chip underneath his skin between his shoulder blades. No more. Should I be concerned that it has somehow moved out of place or been lost, or is this normal?
Tail: Coal seems not to know that his extremely long tail is attached to him. He chases it, bites it, scratches it, etc. - and then he yelps or screeches when he realizes that it hurts. Is this normal?
Table scraps: How much is OK? I mean, I certainly don't feed him table scraps every day, but every once in awhile I give him a little yogurt off the back of my spoon, or a little fish from my plate (as long as there's no onions), etc. - but how much is too much? Sometimes I get the feeling he could eat my whole plate full!
Bonito flakes: How do I feed these to him?
Catnip: He doesn't respond. He's 6 months old on Friday...shouldn't he be responding by now?
Ok, thanks for indulging me. I appreciate it!
