Natural stain and urine odor cleaner

Fizzion Pet Stain and Odor Cleaner, with spray bottle: Cat behaviorist Jackson Galaxy  says this works best for removing urine smell. It’s pretty amazing.

Simple Solution is the enzyme cleaner I use for stains, however the fragrance seems to have changed for the worse over the years. With the exception of their hardwood floor solution — that one doesn’t smell like a fake perfume.

Beneficial supplements for cats

  • Probiotics: Pet Flora (High success rate in resolving pet digestion problems – vomiting, irritable bowel, etc. See Vitality Science website.) Doesn’t require refrigeration.
  • Probiotics + Enzymes: Wholistic Feline Digest Plus (powdered form). Overall great probiotic-enzyme product for cat digestion and wellbeing that happens to include two probiotics known to support kidney health.  (I recommended keeping it in the refrigerator as often as possible to keep the microbes alive.)
  • Probiotics for Kidney Disease: Azodyl Renal Function Support. Veterinary probiotic supplement for cats and dogs with kidney disease. This is a premium-priced product, often prescribed by vets. The positive reviews are encouraging if you have a CKD cat.
  • Enzymes to Add to Cat Food: NUSENTIA Enzyme Miracle. Great to use if you can’t feed raw food! Most of the power of raw food is in the enzymes that would otherwise be destroyed by cooking.
  • Iceland Pure Unscented Sardine-Anchovy Oil (designed for pets)
  • Nordic Natural Omega-3 Pet fish oil (designed for pets)
  • Carlson fish oil (also for humans)
  • BioSuperfood or BioPreparation (microalgae with anti-inflammatory properties and a reputation for helping with all kinds of cat illness)

Safest soap if you must(!) bathe your cat

Dr. Bronner’s unscented castile soap

Easy grow cat grass

Pet Greens Garden Wheat Grass Self-Grow Kit: Grows like crazy, but you need to plant it in a heavy, solid pot so your cat can really bite down and pull at it. Otherwise it just drags around or knocks over.

Animal communicators who love cats

  • Sharon Callahan– for spiritual readings. Sharon has a very spiritual nature. She’s very helpful to talk with when your cat is ill or has passed on.
  • Marta Williams – for behavioral and missing cat communications: Marta has a speciality of helping people locate missing cats via her telepathic gifts. (Hard to believe, but she’s had considerable success.)
