    How can I help a cat with chronic nasal congestion?

    Hello my cat, Rocky, is 13 years old. He was just recently in for a check-up, and I forgot to mention his congestion to the doctor. He continously has to blow his nose out to make a clean passage for him to breathe. It's been like this for a couple of years. I think he got the virus from a feral...

    Cat walks sideways, hindquarters

    I am reluctant to get him neutered. I have another cat who sleeps in my garage. He used to be just like Larry (the cat mentioned above). He was constantly wandering, but he was happy. I had him fixed, and now he sleeps in my garage all day. He seems to have no motivation or no reason for living...

    Cat walks sideways, hindquarters

    It's hard to explain, and kinda subtle. But I notice him sometimes and it seems like his hindquarters walk a bit sideways for short periods of time. He is a stray, homeless cat. When I see things odd like this, it makes me worry. I do the best I can to keep him fed, and to fix his wounds when he...

    Is this an injury, or something else?

    It looks as if my question had been deleted. The column where it shows how many replies and how many views is blanked out. So is the date. Was this question removed by the moderator? Obviously the thread is still here, but maybe only those who initially responded are able to view it??? Last...

    Is this an injury, or something else?

    Well that white thing you see was hanging on the outside initially. I removed it with my fingers. I could have swore it was moving. But I thought it might be my imagination. Now I am not so sure. Maybe it is larva! That is really discouraging. I was hoping it was a an absess from a fight, and...

    Is this an injury, or something else?

    I feed about 5 stray cats. I noticed this one scratching the side of his neck so I had a closer look. There seems to be a deep hole, and inside of it is something white, I assume its pus. I simply do not have the money to bring him to a vet. I am not sure I will be able to make my rent this...

    Where can I buy an IV bag for my cat

    My 13 year old cat has been throwing up all day, and he's not feeling good. I gave him some Cerenia that I had in the house. His vomitting has made him dehydrated. I know how to use an IV bag, and I have some sterile needles. Is there a place to buy an IV bag that is affordable? I took care of a...

    Somebody is peeing on the carpet along the baseboards, is there something I can put down?

    She doesn't like the other two cats, but there's nothing I can do about it, unfortunately. They get along well enough, though. I took her in to have her teeth cleaned not too long ago, and they did blood work before hand. Her blood work looked good. But whether or not this means anything with...

    Somebody is peeing on the carpet along the baseboards, is there something I can put down?

    There are 4 cats in the house; my two, and for the past 8 months, my roommate's two. Somebody is peeing in the living room. There are literally over ten different spots where they have been using it as a pee station. I just spent the past hour with a spot cleaner machine cleaning them. I am not...

    What can I do about a roommate who doesn't care about her bond with her cats

    He has been in the picture since she's lived here, about a year. He tried to choke her so that's why she moved out and moved in with me. He is not a cat lover. I wouldn't trust them in his care.

    What can I do about a roommate who doesn't care about her bond with her cats

    When she moved in, she came with two cats. (a mama and her baby). The cats adored her, and whenever they heard her voice they ran down the stairs to greet her. But she is losing the bond with them. She is never here. She is seemingly not concerned about losing the bond. She is only concerned...

    Do you think trapping your cats in your bedroom all night with a loud TV blaring is cruel to the cats?

    They are young. It's a mama and her kitten, 2 years and 8 months, respectively. I think I will just tell her her TV is bothering me, and ask her to turn it down, or use close-captions. She has lived here 8 months so it will be the first time I have ever complained about her TV. In truth, it...

    Do you think trapping your cats in your bedroom all night with a loud TV blaring is cruel to the cats?

    Oh I don't know. I think the TV on in the background is just how she has grown up. She is 50 years old. I'm not trying to change her behavior. I just want to know if I should get the cats out of their by sharing with her my concern for their well-being.

    Do you think trapping your cats in your bedroom all night with a loud TV blaring is cruel to the cats?

    Thanks. Why does anyone leave the TV on all night? I don't know. It's just something she's comfortable doing. My sister used to be the same way before she passed away. She played the TV all night. I suppose it drowns out their own thoughts. I personally cannot sleep with a TV on. I like my room...
