    Outdoor to indoor cat

    Thanks for your info, much appreciated. You are so right about my feeling bad. She's been with me about 6 months so I guess I have to be patient. I have to laugh about the your blinds. I finally just pulled my blinds up to keep Jasmine from destroying them. You are also right about it...

    Incontinence In Cats Stress??

    Help needed. We recently took in a stray cat. He is about 8 months old. We assume he has been neutered before he came to us. (actually he invited himself in) because one of his ears has been clipped. He has been checked by our vet and vaccinated. The vet said the cat (Hunter) was healthy. He is...
