    What Questions To Ask When Checking Out A New Vet?

    I have been wanting to change vets for a while now and the horrible experience we had with them euthanizing our cat earlier this week has sealed the deal. I have been emailing several places and getting prices and I've found one that I would like to check out. I plan on stopping by there later...

    Time To Say Goodbye To Our 20 Year Old Cat.

    It's been 2 days and I really didn't think I'd miss her as much as I do. She was such a low-key cat compared to our other 3. She'd spend her days sitting in her box, or by her bowl, or on the window seat. She had no desire to go outside like our others do. She was just one of those cats that you...

    Time To Say Goodbye To Our 20 Year Old Cat.

    Her name was BuBu (a take off on Boo Boo). Here are pictures of her doing her 2 favorite things--sitting at her bowl and napping on her heating pad :)

    Time To Say Goodbye To Our 20 Year Old Cat.

    She has now gone over the Rainbow Bridge :( My husband was there almost 3 hours for a procedure that takes 5 minutes. They apologized, but him having to wait that long never should have happened.

    Time To Say Goodbye To Our 20 Year Old Cat.

    I last heard from him right before noon (PST) and he was still waiting, so about 30 minutes ago. I'm sure he will call me when he leaves.

    Time To Say Goodbye To Our 20 Year Old Cat.

    I didn't think any vet would let someone sit with the other clients when they have come to end their pet's life. Especially to sit and wait for that long. It is a walk-in clinic and I'm sure they have to see everyrone in order, but he did call. At least put him in another room!

    Time To Say Goodbye To Our 20 Year Old Cat.

    This is turning out to be a horrible experience for my husband! We’ve taken our pets to this startup practice for the past 5 years. I’ve always thought about going somewhere else, but they are so much cheaper than other places. I emailed them yesterday telling them we want to euthanize our cat...

    Time To Say Goodbye To Our 20 Year Old Cat.

    Thank you all. My husband will be taking her in shortly after they open tomorrow morning. We plan on having a private cremation and getting her ashes back. We have two of our other cats buried in the back yard but he wanted to have her cremated so she can go with us if we ever move as she was...

    Time To Say Goodbye To Our 20 Year Old Cat.

    The time has come to say goodbye to our nearly 20 year old cat. She has been with my husband longer than I have and it is hard for me, but it is extremely hard for him. For about 10 days now she has had labored breathing, the type that makes you really unsettled when you are near her. She hasn’t...

    Neighbor Upset About Cat Poop In Yard.

    And the thing is, the guy can't be bothered to even talk to any of us or look our way when we're outside. Yet he came over to both our house last summer and my neighbors house last weekend to complain about the poop in the yard. It just seems a lot more volatile when he can't be bothered with us...

    Neighbor Upset About Cat Poop In Yard.

    I contacted the city to see what their response was on the poop issue. I had an officer respond to me saying that all pets are required to be on leashes. Well good luck with getting a cat on the leash. I have yet to see one! If we get ticketed then the whole neighborhood gets ticketed and the...

    Neighbor Upset About Cat Poop In Yard.

    That's EXACTLY what my husband said! Cats don't just drop and poop in the middle of the yard. This neighbor said they've found poop in their planters even! Sorry, but none of our cats have ever gone to the extreme of climbing into a planter to poop! This guy is a bodybuilder at about 6'3 250...

    Neighbor Upset About Cat Poop In Yard.

    Well he said to our neighbors that he called animal control and if he has evidence they can get a ticket. I love how he's the new guy in the neighborhood and the only time he has spoken to me, other than coming to our door and complaining about the poop, is when I introduced myself to him and he...

    Neighbor Upset About Cat Poop In Yard.

    I understand that. A catio WOULD make me much more at ease, but I just don't think it's going to work with our house layout. We have a pet door that they can go out at their leisure and if we could somehow build it around that, but that would interfere with us going in and out the back door...

    Neighbor Upset About Cat Poop In Yard.

    I'm sure they won't do anything to deter them because I'm sure their excuse would be why should they buy stuff to get rid of them when it should be our place to keep them home! I've looked on their Facebook page and they are both into hunting and shooting guns so they don't appear to "like"...

    Neighbor Upset About Cat Poop In Yard.

    So I know finding poop in your yard for people that don’t have pets is a nuisance. We have 3 cats that are all indoor/outdoor and our next door neighbor has an indoor/outdoor cat and the people next to them have an indoor/outdoor cat and the person kitty corner from me has the same. We’ve all...

    Neighbor Thinks It's Our Cats Pooping In Their Yard.

    We keep dry food out all the time and then give them wet in the morning and evening. Yes we play with them, but they tire of that pretty quickly most of the time. Our one cat will is the big roamer will come in to eat and then be gone for 3-4 hours. Our other roamer is almost 13 so he doesn't go...
