    Rescued Senior needs grooming

    I rescued an 11-year old Ragdoll Janurary past. He's adjusted remarkably well except: he won't let me groom him. We do have a problem with petting aggression if he's touch anywhere on his body except the face and neck. He does need occasional grooming but he won't let me near him! He...

    Sunblock and over active oil glands

    Hi fellow cat-lovers. I have 2 questions about my 10-year old, DSH, neutered male. 1). He is white with pink skin. As he ages, he likes sleeping on the deck in the sun more and more. Sometimes he snoozes in the shade under a deck chair. Is it safe to apply sunblock to his ears and nose...

    Senior Rescue--litter box troubles--HELP

    I recently rescued an 11-yo neutered front declawed, polydactyl, cross-eyed, Ragdoll-Wannabe. He was an owner surrender and spent about 4-weeks at an animal shelter before coming to me. I was assured he got along well with dogs and cats--dogs yes, cats not so well. He spent the first several...

    Professional Groomer

    Hi Gang. It's been a while since I posted. I just got back from taking Dottie (17yo female) to the groomer and vet. She did very well! Lots of yowling, but she didn't scratch or bite anyone. Dottie is a long-hair (well, not any more) and due to her age, has stopped grooming. I had her get...

    Sign of Senility?

    I have an (nearly) 18 yo spayed female named Dottie. The last several weeks Dottie has started screaching and yowling about 2:00 a.m. She will screach so loud that it startles me out of bed. When I check on her she does not seem to be in any sort of distress. The screaching stops by the time...

    Duffy, from Kitten to Kat

    Most of you will remember when Duffy came home with me on July 5th. He was about 8 weeks old then. He's now 7 months. Here is a most recent pic. He's grown from sleeping on the perch to his cat jungle to stretching out full on the guest bed.

    feliway room mister

    Does this stuff really work? Since Bleu's illness with FLD, he's become really skittish! Would the feliway help him with this? I've also added the 2 kittens to the household, which doesn't help matters much. Duffy is getting aggressive (he was just neutered on Monday,) Dottie is constantly...

    Post Spaying Behavior

    Penny was spayed on June 5. She's doing fine. However, yesterday she has started behaving like she's in heat. She's not an affectionate cat. She's rubbing her rear on everything, purring loudly, and calling out. I don't get why all of a sudden she's acting like this. Is there a hormonal...

    A Couple of Goofballs

    The other day, I decided to move the dvd/vcr machine from my home office TV to my bedroom TV. I unplugged the machine and took into my bedroom. When I went back to the office room to get the cables, this is what I found. She's so curious! Notice in the bottom left corner of the pic? You can...

    Hormone Replacement Therapy

    In Jan 2002, I had to have an emergency abdominal hysterectomy --they took everything! I used HRT by way of Climara patches for the first year, but decided that wasn't the best thing to do considering all the recent studies. My hot flashes have greatly subsided, but I'm having real trouble...
