    She hasn’t been outside at all. She plays pretty crazy with her chase toys. I noticed she was limping slightly earlier but now she can’t put any weight on it at all. I can put her in a playpen until the morning - the evet is full right now. Any opinons much appreciated.

    Cat in Heat?

    I took in a stray about a month ago now. Things are going fabulously and she's integrated into our home nicely. The problem is she won't shut-up and I can't decide if she's in heat. I mean at first it was understandable because I kept her segregated in a bedroom, but now she'll meow for 10...

    Just Caught Stray in Trap

    I just caught this cat I've been feeding for two months. Long story short, is there a way to tell if there's kittens somewhere??? I can't handle him/her yet. I don't see any sign of lactation, but then again I can't see her belly because she's medium haired. Tonight was a big surprise as...

    I just picked up my cat and her fur under her chin is - well I wouldn’t say it’s matted - but it’s as though she got it wet with something sticky and it dried. She doesn’t go outside and I cannot find anything she would have gotten into. Any ideas?
