    Adopting a kitten who has URI - another cat in household.

    He is vaccinated but they said it minimizes symptoms of the feline herpes virus but isn’t totally effective against them getting it. The vet says knowing how bad of a patient he is at the vet, they wouldn’t necessarily recommend adopting a cat with herpes unless I can be sure to separate the...

    Adopting a kitten who has URI - another cat in household.

    I asked her foster about her sneezing and she said she didn’t sneeze consistently. So she wasn’t aware it was an URI. I took the kitten to the vet today for treatment options and we are just slightly overwhelmed at the possibility of this being a lifelong thing. We feel so torn because...

    Balding bumps on cat’s ear

    My 2 year old cat had a bump on his ear that seemed to be balding, and now he has two. I’ve seen a lot of inconclusive posts of what could be the cause of them. I know that the best thing to do would be to see a vet, but he has some vet trauma from a kitten ailment and he goes from a sweet...
