    I can't find the medication for Ear Mites

    I am really glad to hear that ear mites are host specific. My newest foster brought some in and infected my other two. I have been having itchy ears since. I have been too embarrassed to call the doctor and ask if I might have caught them. My ears still itch, though. I guess its just the...

    Smelly Cat

    I have noticed a weird smell when some of my fosters arrive, too. Some of my theories: --Terrible food quality at previous home or shelter --Being under stress causes hormones/adrenalin/etc.(?) to give the cats natural skin oils a different scent --Absorbed the odor of an *aromatic* dog the...

    Hercules only has one testicle!

    One of my foster cats had an undescended testicle. The vet had to go into his abdominal cavity to retrieve it when he was neutered. It took a little longer to recover from the surgery, but other than that there really wasn't a problem.

    Any Acme refugees here??

    I surfed Acmepet often, but didn't post much. I hope more Acme people give The Cat Site a try. I think they'll like it, once they get used to the different message display style.

    Optional blood test? (long post)

    That way you will have a healthy baseline to compare to later, if a problem develops years down the road.

    Seeing things?

    I like to think that the mysterious running episodes are caused by my cats who have passed on coming back to play with my new cats. Or if they start talking and purring for no apparent reason, maybe my Grandma (major cat lover) is stopping by to pet everyone.

    Animal Shelter problem

    Another litter pan idea--those disposable aluminum turkey-size roast pans. There might be some of them on sale now that the Holidays are over. Also, metal cake pans from thrift stores.

    I know better... I really do...

    In some cases, the people who are posting the "pet Wanted" ads on the Petfinder website are just looking for a really cheap purebred and aren't willing to pay the prices of a responsible breeder. But in other cases, they just didn't have any clue that there are purebreds, or the kind of mix...

    I know better... I really do...

    Alicat--I know how you feel about seeing all those homeless animals. I was doing the same thing, then I thought, I'm spending time on anyway, might as well do it with a purpose. The way I've found to make it less sad is to play matchmaker for a pet. I go through the Petfinder Pet...

    Lord of the Rings Two Towers

    I'm curious how they are going to fit everything into the third movie and keep it under 4 hours? There's the whole third book and what is left to do from TTT (shelob, etc.), plus taking the time to resolve the Arwen/Aragorn romance which wasn't in the books in the first place. I know I am...

    Curious question about shelter cats.

    I don't have any statistics about how many are turned in for litterbox problems, but this has been my personal experience. Of all the adult foster cats I've had, 18 so far, the only one who ever peed outside of the box was one who had a bad bladder infection. Some of the kittens made a few...

    It's been so long (this is for older members)

    Yeah, it's really too bad. I enjoyed reading the books and what people wrote. Not to mention all those cute cat pics....

    Pet Peeves

    #1--Those people who come into the pet adoption events and monopolize a particular cat or dog for an hour (and the attention of it's foster parent), looking like they've found their one true love. Then when you bring them an adoption form, they say, "Oh, I wish I could take Fluffy home with me...
