    Optimal time to take Elizabethan Collar off after spay

    So, I posted here a couple of weeks ago that Chiquita got spayed. She was very very active from moment one, and because I have my other two cats, one of which is a little nut that considers Chiquita his personal play toy, I've kept them separate for two weeks when not supervised. She had skin...

    Chiquita got spayed...

    Actually the medication they gave me is called Buprenorphine. Is that one OK?

    Chiquita got spayed...

    The vet told me she doesn't need to return to remove stitches, because they used skin glue. I'm told to keep the "huge" collar for 10 days, but she can't eat with it, so I'm taking it off for her meals but putting it right back on. I feel bad because I'm keeping her separate from her buddies...

    Introducing a New Female to M/F cats

    I had a spayed female and a neutered male when I found Chiquita on my doorstep. Chiquita is a tortoishell so I knew right away she was a female. Looked (and proved by vet) to be about 6 months old unspayed female. I had heard about the problem of introducing females to each other so I was...

    New kitten terrified!

    Your kitten will be just fine!! Keep up the good work and keep him isolates until he is completely comfortable with "his/her" room. Allow short, supervised intros beteween the other cat, the dog and your little humans. It may take a while but your kitten may end up the "alpha" of your house...

    Odd Cat Behavior, new cat owner

    "Given a choice, virtually all cats will go outside..." That is very true! But I have my doubts. I wish I could let my cats out with no stress, Right now I have a 4 yr old spayed female that I grabbed from the park across my house. She loves the balcony, but does not go further. I have a 2...

    New Mother cat anxiety?

    It looks like you are her "rock" and she only feels safe around you. If she is not bothered by the constant moving, I would advised to keep her and her kittens near you. It seems to work!

    A successfull introduction! Chiquita may fit in!

    Dusky is still testy with Chiquita because she doesn't stop the playing... but today, for the first time, they actually licked each other for a few seconds, but it happened right after the afternoon naps. Can someone enlighten me about females vs females? Is the fact that Chiquita is still...

    A successfull introduction! Chiquita may fit in!

    It's been now a week since I found Chiquita in my driveway. I spent a small fortune the next day that I found her to get the all clear from the vet that she has no signs of "nasties", and for these few days I have followed all introduction rules even though I was tempted at times to skip some...

    A successfull introduction! Chiquita may fit in!

    WOW! I think I did it! I followed all the instructions and so far so good. Here's the story... I have a very skittish 4 yr old female that I rescued from the park beside my house when she was 5 months old and pregnant. After much agonizing I decided to end her pregnancy when I spayed her...

    I've noticed she sticks her tounge out.

    Cats will do that if a particular smell really intrigues them. They have very sharp receptors in the roof of their mouths. There is no reason to worry, unless you actually see and HEAR the cat visibly panting. If that happens, then it's pretty sure the cat is in distress. You may want to check...
