Rules & Guidelines

1. Cats! Post pictures of your cats, talk about cats, ask questions, get advice.

2. We prefer that if you post photos, it be of your own cat(s) or one(s) you personally know. If clearly stated, photos of cat(s) you don't know is allowed, within reason. Lying and claiming/posting someone else's cat is/as your own will result in an immediate ban, with no warnings given.

3. No NSFW content and no animal abuse/cruelty.

4. No titles asking for upvotes (e.g. "This cat didn't get any love in /r/aww", "it's my cake day", "my first post here", "any love for ...").

5. Links asking for funding, competition votes or advertisement will be removed (see the list of subreddits below for a possible alternative).

6. Be civil. We have a strong, bright-line policy against insults, namecalling or harassment, and will ban you without notice for such conduct. If a photo has a person in it along with a cat, don't even think of being creepy or rude to that person. This includes any comments on people's appearance, either positive or negative!

7. Do not post personal information (this includes Facebook links as it can be easily traced back).

8. No meme, image macro, low-effort content. Original content is preferred. No image macros, memes, or similar low-effort content. You might want to check out r/MEOW_IRL and r/Catmemes for that.

9. Recent/Egregious reposts : Repost of recent or currently popular post from another subreddit for the purpose of farming karma (Rule 10).

10. Reposts are allowed (and crossposts are too, don't confuse them!), within reason.

11. No posts asking what gender your cat is, ask a vet!

12. 'Name my cat/kitten' posts are allowed, but require the correct flair + verification to ensure OC. You must set the flair of your post to 'Name Request' at the time of submission, failing to do so is in breach of this rule. Please submit your post before sending us a modmail - your submission will trigger an automated message which will contain the instructions required for your post to be approved.Your verification message will be left unanswered if you send us a modmail before you have submitted your post for us to review.

13. Mourning (RIP) posts are allowed. If you do not wish to see them, there are several filters in the sidebar to prevent them from appearing to you.

14. Merchandise posts are an instant, unreversable bannable offense. No, we don't care if you've contributed to the subreddit before or not. Post any merchandise, you will be banned forever and we will not reverse it. We're here for your feline friends, not your merchandise.

The moderators of this subreddit are not responsible for any medical advice given and we suggest that you don't follow or post it. Go see a vet! Please do not give medical advice to posters if you are not a medical professional with experience treating cats.

Some of these rules are based upon Reddit's site-wide rules, Reddit's TOS and Reddiquette.

Cat help

Been with my gf for over three months and go to her place 3 times a week. I'm aware that you must be gentle and there's no go zones when petting. That cat will meow and hiss if I try but will be cool for treats only. I was told it could take 6-12 months for the cat to want to be near me. Any advice ? Please don't criticize.

Quiet hair clipper for my cat

Hello, everyone. I have a long haired cat and I’m looking for hair clipper recommendations. My cat is deathly afraid of noise and a recent clipper I bought scares him away. Does anyone have experiences with little to no noise hair clippers?

How to Mediate Play Agression?

I have two cats. An 8 month old female, and a 10 year old female. The kitten obviously likes to play and she is at the stage where she's a literal tornado of pure energy. My senior cat...not so much. She wants to be left alone. The thing is, when I am not constantly entertaining her with toys and things to keep her busy she goes and tries to play with the senior. She with pounce and try to wrestle, and while there is no spitting, hissing, or cries (other than the senior) there's nothing that's ill-intended. Is there anything else I can do? I give the senior opportunities to escape the kitten, such as patio time, and I have automatic toys going when I have to leave, but its near constant and I am more concerned for my senior and her stress. Any advice?

My sweet little King gone but never forgotten

The sweetest Maine coon kitty was taken too soon today. My heart is in absolute shambles. I've lost my best friend in the world. I feel guilty because he started acting weird a couple days ago, but being a first time cat owner I never thought it would lead to this, and that he would pull through. Now I'm stuck here without my little buddy and so much guilt and grief. All I can try to do is tell people if your pet seems to not be doing right, take them to the vet as soon as possible. I will never forget you Mufasa

Is a humane society required to disclose any medical conditions about cats for adoption?

I live in Ontario, Canada and interested in adopting a teenage cat from my local humane society. On the day before I was scheduled to pick him up, they called me saying that the person in charge of his foster home noticed he was walking funny so he had to be taken to a vet. Hoping it was nothing serious, I waited about 2 weeks before following up with them and they said that he is still under medical care. Citing privacy and confidential reasons, they were unable to disclose his exact medical condition. I found this odd because in the past I was interested in adopting a rabbit from them and they mentioned that the rabbit had some infection (forgot the name and it was exclusive to rabbits) and successfully underwent surgery to treat it, so why can't they tell me about the cat's medical problem? Would appreciate any insight.

My cat ate a piece of garlic naan bread

Hello all, my cat accidentally ate a piece of garlic naan bread- about 1/7th of the naan (1inx2in piece). For context he’s an orange tabby, 2 years old, and about 12 pounds.

Here’s the naan in question: https://www.target.com/p/stonefireroasted-garlic-naan-bread-8-8oz-2ct/-/A-15386012?ref=tgt_adv_XS000000&AFID=google_pla_df&fndsrc=tgtao&DFA=71700000012732781&CPNG=PLA_Grocery%2BShopping_Local%7CGrocery_Ecomm_Food_Bev&adgroup=SC_Grocery&LID=700000001170770pgs&LNM=PRODUCT_GROUP&network=g&device=m&location=9051947&targetid=pla-455236921419&ds_rl=1246978&gbraid=0AAAAAD-5dfYlS7Rio2K2qAG_70nulSZO9&gbraid=0AAAAAD-5dfYlS7Rio2K2qAG_70nulSZO9&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI16bQ5fnm_QIV5Y5bCh2tkgA0EAQYASABEgI3FfD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

Everything I’m reading on Google says that garlic is super toxic to cats and that I need to go to the vet immediately. Our vet is closed right now and I’m super worried about him dying/getting sick and I’m not sure what to do. He’s playing and chatting as he normally does. What should I do?
