    Cat mated 22 days ago and has a browny pinky discharge/ongoing pregnancy

    Do you have a picture of her we could see? Cats usually give birth around 63 days, have you felt any movement at all in her abdomen or sides? Do you know exactly when she was bred? if you do then her crying could be related to hormonal changes, usually, a cat will act as though they are in heat...

    Aggression after roommate moved in with intact male cat

    I had that exact thing happen! My cat was always calm and fine in the car, I never crated him. Then one day I was coming up to a stop sign on the highway and semis were coming, I went to step on the brake, something spooked him, and he ran and hid behind the brake pedal! I almost panicked, but...

    Featured Drop trap

    I have the opposite problem. I have one cat left to trap and all the fixed ones go in, not allowing him in! I am going to try the old bottle with a string trap, the bottle propping the door open and hopefully, the one I want will go in one. Then I'll pull the bottle out with the string. I had...

    Cat grieving after death of her brother?

    The only thing you can do is to comfort her in any way you can. Lots of attention, good food, and treats. You all need the comfort of each other, just being together helps. She will eventually accept that her brother is gone, though it might take a while, several weeks, and you might find...

    New kitten intro - seeing under the door

    They wouldn't recognize each other, animals don't have the ability to sort out relationships. Mothers don't recognize their kittens after months of separation either. Even cats brought separately to the vet will fight because they smell different. hissing, swatting, growling are all perfectly...

    Weird Scabs/Fur Loss On One Ear?

    Fur loss is almost always connected to an injury of some sort, whether abscess, scratch, spider bite, or even ringworm. As long as it doesn't seem painful, there are no signs of active infection or some kind of trauma, it should heal on its own. You could apply a little human antibiotic salve...

    Stray cat have swollen lower lip

    If he is so stressed with going to the vet I would call the vet and explain he is an outside cat and very aggressive. I have a vet that will then look at a photo and give me something to treat them with, usually over the counter. If he is getting better I myself would just monitor him instead of...

    My 2 kittens are fighting. Please help!

    Yes, kittens can sound like they are actually killing each other, with squeals, hisses, and lots of screaming. Once they are both neutered things will settle down a lot. Mounting behavior is a sign of dominance, as is pinning to the ground by the neck. As stated above let the behaviors guide...

    Suddenly obsessed with closet

    That usually indicates she hears or sees SOMETHING in there, it may be inside the walls, and you don't hear it. It could be anything, bugs, birds, bat, or the most common, mice. You might consider a trap or Decon inside a box with a small hole (so neighborhood cats don't get hurt), or observing...

    Stray cat have swollen lower lip

    They look much better. I would get some cat wound spray at a local farm supply store, soak a small piece of rag with it (cats hate the spraying sound), and apply it that way if he'll let you. cats are very tough he should heal fine, just monitor him for abscesses that develop from fights. They...
