    hair loss and pigment change

    My cat, Bob, got injured a couple months ago. He was on the counter with the kittens and one of them pushed him off. He pulled a ligament in his shoulder. I took him immediately to the vet and he put him on a pain medication after doing x-rays to be sure there was no break. The pain meds...

    Royal Canin Green Peas Duck Formula

    My vet has put my cats on this formula. Does anyone know why it is only by prescription? It is a long ride to this vet's office. Do you all have another suggestion for food after we get Samuel's diarrhea problem figured out?

    Communicable diseases

    I have two cats. Samuel is 2 1/2 and Bob is about 4. I got Samuel from the Humane Society when he was a kitten. He grew to 14 pounds and had a lush, gorgeous coat. A year ago, an almost dead Bob crawled onto my porch and he became part of the family. He has doubled his weight since I found...

    cat accidents

    Hi Kerry! I am not sure if I have a problem or not. I have a 2 1/2 year old tabby named Samuel. I also take care of my 86 year old mother. They both came a little over 2 years ago and my mother came first. Several months ago, Samuel tripped my mother and she fell and broke her wrist. A...

    Chronic Diarrhea

    My Samuel (gray and white) has had chronic diarhhea for many months. I think I asked about it here a long time ago. My vet and I finally decided it was because of stress after I found Bob (Siamese) and Bob moved in to stay. I keep a supply of diarrhea pills and when Samuel gets a bout of it...

    Because I am nervous over the pet food recall, I was wondering about offering raw hamburger at night to my cat's instead of using Fancy Feast for their treat. They also eat Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul dry food. I thought maybe I could freeze the hamburger in ice cube trays and thaw...

    Cat biting Cat

    I have read and read and read here about what to do about my problem with my cats, but I need to discuss it with you all. Samuel is my first cat. He is 1 1/2 years old. He and my Dachshund get along great. They have always played rough together, but still have been real buddies. The dog is...

    Cat dominance issue

    The kitty problems and blessings began just a month ago. I heard a funny sound on my back porch and went out and found a nearly dead emaciated cat laying there. I put some food down and he gobbled it as fast as he could absolutely gobble. He could barely even walk. I went and got a crate and...

    Samuel is chewing everything.

    Samuel is 11 months old and has started chewing on the couch corner, chair rungs, and most anything made of fabric, vinyl, wood and metal. Is this a behavior issue or could he be getting molars? I see him chewing way back in his mouth.

    When should I switch my kitten to adult food?

    The question has come up about how long a kitten should be on kitten food. Samuel is 10 1/2 months old and I thought he should be on a kitten formula for 12 months, but now I have doubts. He seems to be more interested in the dog's food right now. I am wondering if it could be because his...

    Do you remember Samuel?

    I don't know if you all remember Samuel or not, , but he has grown. He is now 7 months old! He has gone through a house move (with me) and hopefully we are settled in for the rest of our lives. This is what he looks like, now. I think the child is going to be a big boy. He weighs 8...

    Kitty nibbles

    When my new kitten is playing with me he sometimes bites a little too hard. I know he is just playing. It has been many years since I had a kitten and I don't want to damage his personality. How should I handle this? I don't mind him mouthing me or feeling with his mouth, I just don't want...

    I got a kitten!

    I don't know if you remember me or not, but I got a kitten two days ago. I did not get one of my friend's barn kittens. I got one from the Humane Society. He will be 3 months old on May 15. His name is Samuel and he is neutered, vaccinated (first time around), and micro-chipped. He was...

    Hi! I may be getting a kitten.

    Hi! I am here because I want to read about cats and their care. I think I am getting a kitten. I presently own one Dachshund, age 21 months. In the past year I have lost two dogs. My 15 year old Yorkie had her knee fall apart and it was not repairable. She was in a lot of pain and my Vet...
