    Nasty male feral

    I have quite a few ferals around here. Thye have been around for years and years. I feed them, water them, and provide shelter of sorts. Some come for a quick pet before scittering away. I would take them in for a nueter/spay but I just can't afford it. The vets in my area all feel it is a...

    My little girl is 17 years old. If she doesn't get her twice daily squirt of Redi-whip she pouts. She has receieved this treat since infancy. She is healthy and as active as any 17 year old would be. I don't know if Redi-whip would be the same as regular milk or not. What I do know is if I were...

    Kitten being too affectionate

    This is just another way of our cats surprising us. They only want us to think they don't need us. I have a cat who is 16 years old. Just a few months ago she got it into her head that she LOVES my husband. She always before ignored him, totally. Now, she jumps on his lap, stares him in the...

    Third Eye

    Hi Everyone, I have heard lots of times about the third eye. And read its description. I can't ever seem to understand what it is or where it is located. Does it look like the cats eyelid is turned inside out? Does it happen with a discahrge? Is some discharge from a cat's eye normal? Please...

    HI Rukia is a perfect twin for my Ozzy. I have had some experience with the Luekemia. I had a little orange tabby with it who only lasted a couple of months.

    Should I let my kitten lick his paws after declaw?

    Hi--I have had all of the cats that I have ever owned declawed. Here is my advice....If the older cat won't use the yesterday's news litter add just a bit of her litter to the box. Not much mind you but enough so that there is the scent of it. That is what I have done when having declawed new...

    Senior losing weight

Is it normal for an older cat to just lose weight. She was always a little chubby, never overweight but now the weight...

    How Long Does The Sadness Last??

    I lost 2 cats within 2 weeks of each other three years ago. They were sisters. I truly believe that the 2nd girl died of a broken heart. They both died in my arms at home. We couldn't talk about them at all for a while. It was just too painful. Now, we enjoy remembering them and their crazy...

    "Ethical" question

    I, too have aproblem with a cat colony. I live in a rural area. I called All of the vets in a 30 mile radius to me. They pretty much told me I am on my own with this situation. Since this is a farming community the vets think that the cats are either the farmers problem, or the farmers friend...

    Thanks fo rthe reply. I must be numb in the brain. LOL. I never even thought to give them litter boxes. I will certainly give that a try. Seems like such an obvious simple solution. Thanks again. Trudy
