    Vet 'only taking established patients'

    Yes, I have heard of this. Would you prefer that they accept you as a client, only for you to have to wait weeks to get an appointment?

    Huge vet issues

    WOW what a bruiser he is! I'd think now that they know they could tranq him while he's still in the carrier?

    Cat pee problem in corner of room

    Does the rug have a rubber backing on it, or under it? Some cats are crazy about peeing on that kind. If you're going to continue letting the cats into the bedroom, put a litter box over that spot for right now. Slowly, like a few inches a day, move the box to where you want it to be. Clean the...

    Concrete forming tubes in DIY cat project?

    Ah, I purchased the sonotubes. I'd guess a support every 3' or so would be plenty, depending on if you attached it to the stud and how much weight the supports are rated for.

    Does my 3mo kitten really need an Echo?

    Mr. Squiggles had one after they found he had a 3rd degree AV block, if I remember right they charged me about $200 for an echo. On the scale of heart murmurs, I've been told that 0 is nothing (obviously) and a 2 is difficult to hear. Smoochie has a grade 2 and our vet has recommended nothing...

    Cat Not Eating as a side effect of prozac

    Concrete forming tubes in DIY cat project?

    Hrm, I've purchased some at Menards before and I wouldn't say they were flimsy at all. Perhaps there are different grades of tubing? Of course if you're thinking of a really long run you'd need some extra supports in the middle anyways, anything will flex if long enough without enough supports.

    He keeps getting in the trashcan, and we've tried everything! Getting desperate!

    Motion-detecting air spraying egg. Works like a charm.

    Interrupted nap snuggle bugging

    That is hilarious! None of my cats do that, and I've never met one who does.

    Endless Meows and Roommate Quarrels

    Try giving her food in a puzzle so it will take her longer to eat? I'm thinking specifically of a food ball, it's like a toy plus food! Can you put a window-mounted bird feeder outside your room to attract more birds? My last thought is cat videos, like the DVD's they sell specifically for cats...

    Large pads on cats feets

    Yes, you'll need a vet for sure. Could be an infection, could be plasma cell pododermatitis. Could be something else entirely!

    Medication and vitamins for cats?

    You can absolutely overdose a cat with vitamin A, as it's fat-soluble and stays in the body for a long period of time. You need to speak with a vet or a vet nutritionist before giving extra supplements. Vitamin A poisoning info:
