    Cats suddenly smacking each other and hissing?

    Thank you for this advice! Poppy was the “only child” ever since she was 7 weeks old and is now 2 years old, so I expected her not to be very pleased with sharing her space. Piper is 11 months old, and will be 1 year old on July 24 (her birthdate according to the rescue) and has been around cats...

    Cats suddenly smacking each other and hissing?

    When things get to the point where Poppy looks like she’s had enough I typically remove one and put them in the master bedroom for a break. After an hour or so, whoever I put in the room gets to come out and it’s fine for a little while but then the hissing starts back up again. Thankfully, no...

    Cats suddenly smacking each other and hissing?

    It happened this past Sunday so it hasn’t been too terribly long. I’ve noticed Poppy won’t always hiss at her as soon as she sees Piper like she did the first few days, but she does if Piper dare to approach her. Piper is not acting innocent though, she will purposely run up to Poppy full speed...

    Cats suddenly smacking each other and hissing?

    Piper and Poppy got along fine after their introduction for about two months, they hung out together, played, ate next to each other, slept in the bed with us, etc. Then one night while we were asleep I heard Poppy yell, the type of yell I’ve only heard once when she accidentally got her tail...

    Cat Fleas

    Great news! That ought to get rid of those nasty fleas for good! And so funny about the flea baths, my cat used to yell at me during them (probably cursing at me in cat tongue lol). I’d still keep an eye out for a few weeks just to make sure, those critter love hiding eggs where you least...

    Cat Fleas

    I hope he feels better soon and that after treatment & everything being washed he won’t have to worry about being itchy again! (And that you won’t have to worry about it either!)

    Cat coughing only when kneading a blanket?

    Thank you for your reply. She hasn’t done it again yet, but that does make me feel a bit better about it. And yes, i’ll still show her vet just for 100% clarity. Her vet is very kind and attentive to her (she gets anxious while being there and they do a great job caring for her) so I know they...

    Cat Fleas

    Yes, I would wash everything to be sure. If you have carpet that he’s been on I’d get something to clean that as well. I had a cat that ended up with fleas once about 8 years ago and we had carpet, at the time I didn’t think about the fleas being able to go in the carpet and lay eggs which...

    Cat coughing only when kneading a blanket?

    Thank you for this, next time I’ll start recording and I’ll post it here as well as showing the vet at her next appointment.

    Cat coughing only when kneading a blanket?

    She does it whilst kneading the blanket so she’s up straight and her head is up as well, I assumed it was coughing but it’s almost like she’s clearing her throat also. I’ll be sure to catch it on video the next time she does it, which is usually at night when we are in bed and she’s doing a...

    Cat coughing only when kneading a blanket?

    My recently adopted shelter/rescue cat (her name is Piper) coughs only when “making biscuits” (kneading a blanket) while purring. However, when she purrs any other time while not kneading, she doesn’t cough at all. This happens to any blanket she does this on, I at first thought maybe the...

    newly adopted feral kitten advice

    hello everyone. so sorry for the delay in the update since her last vet visit. honestly, it felt very rushed. i brought a fecal sample, was prepared to be told she would need another dose, only for them to come out with a different medicine and tell us she had round worms, it was charged to...
