Hello! I just joined this forum because I've found so much helpful information about caring for British shorthairs here when googling, and also because everyone seems very nice here. I live in Sweden but I haven't found any good information on Swedish sites about British shorthairs because they're not super common here, but you all seem to love them as much as I do! Sorry in advance for my awkward English. So, I have a beautiful British Blue boy named Morrissey, or Moggie for short, who is 8 months old. He is the first cat I've had as an adult, and the first pedigree cat I've had. I love him very much, and I worry a lot about him because that's who I am as a person. I just want to take care of him in the best way possible since his wellbeing is my responsibility. So I google things all the time. Like seriously all the time. But most often it's difficult to get straight answers, so I thought I would ask here instead. I am wondering about how to clean his eyes, or the area around the eye where the tears go? He has kind of watery eyes so it needs cleaning but it is difficult to get the gunk off and he doesn't really sit still long enough for me to rub it thoroughly. I am also wondering about kitten food vs. adult food. Is it okay to switch to adult dry food when he is 8 months or should I wait until he's 12 months? The huge bag of Royal Canin kitten food I got ran out last week and I thought I could get the adult one now since he is quite big already. So he has been eating the adult food for a week and it doesn't seem to be a problem, but I worry that maybe he needs kitten food still anyway? He eats one pouch of wet food a day, and has unlimited dry food as well. Another question about food: do you have the food bowl (or as in my case, plate) and drinking bowl elevated? Moggie was hunching over a lot so I raised them up, but I am wondering what is best for his posture and how high up they should be? Lastly, I am wondering about the size of the litter box. I read that it should be extra big since British shorthairs are big cats. I use a Peewee box that is the size of a standard litter box right now and it doesn't seem to be a problem for him, he uses it fine. The only thing is that he scratches the sides for ages after he poos, I don't know if that means something bad? Do you think that I need to get a bigger litter box instead? Would that maybe make him more comfortable and make him stop the excessive scratching? Sorry this got so long! I am just excited to be able to talk to other British shorthair owners, I hope you can bear with me. Any tips you might have would be greatly appreciated! Cheers!
