    What houseplants will cats avoid?

    I have yet to find a houseplant my cats won't molest. The half-life of a potted plant around here is about two hours. They chop them right down right to the dirt!

    Rescued pregnant cat...

    Perhaps a sock full of rice you can microwave for a nest heater. KMR for supplemental feeding, which mama can also have, for supplemental calcium.

    My cat lost a fang, is it normal?

    No, I believe the adult tooth should be making itself known by now. My most-recent kitten's fang showed up in short order--a couple weeks, if I remember right.

    Will my cat's sickness go away?

    That doesn't look so good. Take him to the vet. Having had conjunctivitis myself, it's nothing to be trifled with.

    How important is it for a 8 week old kitten to be with the mom?

    Eight weeks used to be the recommended adoption age but nowadays, something like 12 weeks is recommended. Kitty should be okay as long as he's eating solid food and is using a litter box. Long-term instruction as to proper behavior will be up to you, so you might have to teach him not to bite...

    3 week old kittens not eating

    Give it a shot with the food. Couldn't do any harm, even though they are a bit young. Mix wet kitten food into a sloppy mix along with KMR. The saucer is good to start them with, although it gets a bit messy. Perhaps it would be good to start this process by just offering them KMR in the...

    Should I get really worried if my cat throws up for the first time?

    Cats just seem to throw up more than other household pets. I have a scarf-and-barfer who throws up after eating regularly. I don't think a single vomiting experience is anything to worry about at this stage.

    Question of the Day, Friday, September 17

    Chili is my choice for a chilly day, but I do make a fair Italian wedding soup (not from scratch, but it's pretty good, made from canned stuff and pre-fab meatballs).

    Saw cats pink penis!!!!!

    My two guys are both neutered. One of them occasionally has an "exposure," while the other never does. It just seems to happen at awkward times, and there never has been any issues with his health.

    Another cat introduction thread!

    It's possible that Bastian wouldn't be so boisterous with his housemates if you had a vigorous play session just before his socialization periods. That might take a little wind out of his sails and he could get along better with the others.

    I need advice

    Do get some KMR and related supplies in case you have to supplement feeding. Mama can use some of it as well. The Kitten Lady on YouTube is an excellent resource on kitten rearing.
