    Recent Tooth Extraction General Care

    Not sure the best place to post this: My buddy Cezare has one of his canines extracted yesterday due to a chipped tooth with infection. He’s doing well, but needs to be only on soft food for about 2 weeks. So, this means he can’t go outside (neighbors leave kibble out) for 2 weeks. What I’m...

    Choking? Indigestion?

    came home tonight to find my cat doing this weird thing where he occasionally sticks his neck out then swallows with his eyes closed. He ate some kibble but seems upset. Like maybe something’s stuck? It’s that time of year that they shed terribly, so maybe it’s just a hairball. Maybe it’s...

    Atopica For Outdoor Cat

    ive searched the threads so I apologize if I missed any posts that cover this. My cat Cezare has been suffering from allergies the past 2 years. His worst are chicken/poultry foods and fleas. We’ve gotten him off poultry products and hoped that would help but his flea allergy is worse than ever...

    Turning Outdoor Cats Into Indoor Cats

    hello everyone! I’ve got a bit of a dilemma. I’m moving from an apartment that’s set way off the street (most likely) to a house on a street corner. My cats insisted on being outdoor from the very beginning. Since the area was safe and away from the streets, I went with it. However, when I move...

    Can't Get Cat To Eat/drink

    hello! I posted on Saturday about my kitty being very lethargic and not eating. He'd thrown up and dry heaved as well over a couple of days. He was also licking 'his lips' a lot. We took him to pet ER late Saturday night and they did blood work and X-ray but didn't see anything wrong. Originally...

    Cat Lethargic And Licking Lips

    Hello everyone. I've got an appointment for my 4 year old male cat on Wednesday, but I wonder if he needs to go sooner. I noticed him throw up (mostly digested food) a few days ago. Yesterday, I caught him 'dry heaving' outside but no vomit. Since yesterday, he seems sleepier than normal. He...

    Sudden Bald Spots

    Hello! I've got a very healthy and active 4 year old male cat that I just noticed is having some bald spots issues. He has been shedding a lot and I've been brushing him, but not in these spots. They are on his back legs, on the inside- both of them. He's never had this happen before.  He was...

    Cat Missing-Suggestions?

    Hi, my 4 year old male cat, Cezare, went missing this past Monday (5 days ago). He is neutered and microchipped. He is an indoor/outdoor cat that never strays far from home (for more than 2 hours) and always comes when called. We had severe rain Monday night and flash flooding in my area, so...

    Cone of Shame

    Hello! I've been dealing with an allergic cat since February and I am so unbelievably frustrated! We just can't seem to get to the bottom of this quickly enough. Initially, my 3 year old cat, Cezare, was taken to the vet to be seen for a bald spot on his shoulder/back area that he kept licking...

    Nervous Peeing

    I wonder if anyone has any recommendations for me. My cat, Cezare, has developed a bit of a phobia about going to the vet. In the beginning, he didn't mind our yearly check-ups to the vet. He'd pretty much just chill out in his carrier for the 10 minute ride. However, in the past 4 months, we...

    Anxiety or something else?

    I've had Michaleto for about 2 years and he is 3 years old now. He is a relatively anxious/aware cat and always has been. He's an indoor/outdoor cat that usually loves to spend his afternoons basking outside in the sun napping. The past 3 days have been different though. At some point during the...

    Can seasonal allergies cause asthma in cats?

    Hello. Last season, I noticed that one of my kitties seems to be having some allergy issues. He would sneeze after playing outdoors, and sometimes get runny eyes. He also developed a snore on occasions at night. Once or twice I caught him low to the ground, head outstretched, sounding like he...

I have 2 indoor/outdoor kitties, (they are about 2) and have had them just over a year. I luckily live in a place where rain/inclement weather is not an issue. However, it...

    Meowing more frequently

    About a month and a half ago, my boyfriend and I went out of town for 4 nights and left our 2 cats in the care of a cat sitter, who came in 2 times a day to feed them and check on them.  When we got back, my shy kitty Michaleto seemed to "check in" a bit more than he used to, seeming to me like...

    Hi everyone! I adopted 2 cats about 6 months ago, and the shy one had a few incidents of peeing in his own bed and not covering up his pee in his litter box from time to time. He's also super scared, for example if someone comes to the front door or rings doorbell, he goes flying into the...
