    Found a bunch of these on my cat's fur, anyone know what they are? Checked his skin and didn't find

    It doesn't look like a living thing but is still eerie. We don't have house plants except for a small orchid which he has no access to. We have another cat but didn't fine this thing on him.

    Bad diarrhea, please help!

    Thanks @balibabies Mushe had another 3 times during the past 9 hours. I'm not sure if he is getting better, since I do see a darker colored well formed segment in his litter box and I can tell that's from a later time. I will make a vet appointment this afternoon anyways, just to be sure. The...

    Bad diarrhea, please help!

    Neutering Surgery - Opinions Needed

    New and Resident Kittens + Neutering

    Thanks @Alistair  and @  llinda I'm glad that it worked out well between your kitties and thank you so much for your input. @Alistair, I honestly don't know if Mushe the resident kitten is trying to hurt the younger. I hope he is not since that would really ruin his image as a friendly and...

    Neutering Surgery - Opinions Needed

    Hi Gang - My 10-month male maine coon cat Mushe is not neutered yet for a reason - a vet once 'guestimated' that he might have heart issue and that might influence the anesthesia to be used. The guestimate was due to some skin-twitching symptom and my inital fear that maine coons are more prone...
