    Scab Or Ringworm On Ear Tip?

    hey there, I wad wondering if anyone could provide insight on what the hardness on the tip of my cat’s ear might be. Im paranoid of ringworm, especially since i foster and have other pets. The tip is hardened and feels like a scab. He’s about 9 months old and is acting pretty normal at this...

    Queen Temperature 100.00f, Birth Impending?

    I did take everyone in, we couldn’t figure out exactly what was causing it but the vet said it was most likely an airborne irritant. After I used a watered-down vinegar solution that I had once put drop of peppermint essential oil in too near the room, I heard all of the kittens start doing it...

    Queen Temperature 100.00f, Birth Impending?

    Hey everyone, there’s something I noticed with the kittens and I’m wondering if it’s common or something to be worried about. Every so often, I’ll see one of them pant very heavily for a few seconds. It’s been happening for a couple days and they seem fine apart from that. I can get her seen...

    Queen Temperature 100.00f, Birth Impending?

    Hi there everyone! Sorry I’ve been quiet until now, but I haven’t had anything to report on! Yesterday morning Scarlet gave birth to 7 kittens, one of which had deformities and passed away. Thank you everyone for the advice, momma and babies appear to be doing very well! We actually got quite...

    Queen Temperature 100.00f, Birth Impending?

    Scarlet still isn’t showing any major signs of labor, though I think I might know what you mean by “dropped.” Her belly looks lower than it has been, but she looks smaller. I gave her more space to roam (somewhere quieter too) in hopes that it would help move things along. The kittens have been...

    Queen Temperature 100.00f, Birth Impending?

    Will do! No more signs as of right now, though I planned the next couple days to be flexible and I have a baby monitor on her. Hoping for the best!!

    Thank you for the additional resources! I’ve wound up arranging my schedule for the next couple days around her lol.

    Queen Temperature 100.00f, Birth Impending?

    Honestly, I’m not entirely sure. Her belly still looks rather large to me (poking out at her sides.) Gotcha, I won’t take her temperature any more! Thanks for the reply!

    Queen Temperature 100.00f, Birth Impending?

    Hi there! The shelter that I foster for has given me a pregnant cat to care for until she weans her kittens. She's quite round at this point, and I was told she would give birth within about 5 days. I would like to plan to the best of my ability to be home when she's in labor. I checked her...

    Saving A Fading Kitten

    I have two neonatal kittens in my care as fosters from a local shelter. One is very strong and hitting all milestones as he should be. However, the other has been diagnosed as fading by the shelter staff/veterinarian. He's gaunt, has poor motor skills, dark red bloody stool, and has no desire to...

    Outlier Jerk Cat?

    She hasn't been to the vet recently, so I suppose that's a possibility. She mainly growls at other cats when they get too close to her, I'm not sure if that could point to any health issues. She doesn't show any signs of pain or illness outside of possibly the growling and hissing. That is...

    Outlier Jerk Cat?

    Does anyone else have that ONE CAT who hates everything and everyone? Mine is named Hazel and I honestly worry about her well-being. A cat who is constantly hissing and growling can't be happy, right? She had a pretty standard temperament for a kitten, but with age she's gotten grumpier for no...
