    Is toothpaste necessary, other than as a reward or treat? I'm currently not using it on self, dogs, or kitten. My understanding is that it is the physical action of removing plaque daily that is helpful. The flouride in human toothpaste may or may not help, but we don't use that on pets...

    nursing question: do kittens typically nurse off only one nipple?

    My situation is unusual, but probably just La Leche League 101. I wanted to ask if kittens typically will nurse off of the same nipple, even if they do not have siblings to compete with. I'm pretty sure everything is okay. Willow is now five months old. She was taken away from her mother at...

    How would I describe Willow?

It was just a...

    Litter Box And Potted Plant Issue

    Willow was an outdoor-only kitty until she came to live with me and my dogs, where she has to be indoor-only except for supervised outings. She didn't use the litter box for the longest time and I finally found out where all the kitty pee was going when one of my coffee trees met an untimely...

    Hello From Willow And Me

    Hi forum, Willow is my new baby. I've had cats as companions for most of my life, but she is the first kitten in almost 30 years and I intend to spoil her rotten. She's extremely outgoing, friendly, and active. We've already been hiking together and she even walks on leash for a short...
