    Elderly cat constantly overgrooms this particular spot

    Good morning, Our elderly cat, Lucy has developed a habit of picking at a particular spot on her spine near her back until it’s bare. She’s currently 15 years and a half. We rescued her roughly a year ago from a cat shelter in a very bad condition. She was incredibly stressed at the shelter and therefore, was dirty and pulling her fur out to the point that she was half-bald when we got her (hence we don’t know when this problem really began). However, after our care, she has calmed down and settled....

    Icky eyed kittens

    We have 2 kittens that are 2 1/2 months old. They both have crusty sealed eyes. Their mamma too. But never the same time. One, one day. Then the next one and so on. We clean them multiple times a day. But it still comes back. Any suggestions other than the vet. Can't afford the bill. But most definitely will home treat them.

    Cats gone crazy

    I have 3 cat. They are all healthy, and have lived together for four years. Recently one has been picking on the other one. The fights seem bad, and it's so bad that the one being picked on can't come out from under the bed of off the bed only when I'm home. I give them equal time and attention. This just started. I'm afraid one will get hurt.

    Kitten ate the wrong thing

    My new 4 week old foster kitten ate a piece of crinkly ball before I could get it away from him. Does anyone know if these things are at all digestible? I'm worried that it might block his intestines or cause other health issues.

    Informative

    My roommate has a 7yr old Longhair Persian and according to her vet he is in remarkably good health. The vet attibutes this not to his expertise but to the fact that we bought him a water fountain. It seems that cats will drink a lot more water and thereby flush the toxins from their systems if thay have a source of running or moving water. I suggest if you love your cat get him or her a water fountain for their health

    Kitty has lost a lot of weight

    Our kitty has lost over 4 lbs in as many months...she is vomiting, urinaring excessivly, (mostly outside her litter box) only will eat wet food. She has become unusually vocal and has never been cuddly but now always sits with us. We are taking her to the vet but cannot afford the over $1000 dollars for the tests. I’m not a bad pet parent, we have 6 amazing animals in our house, but just don’t know what the right thing to do is. We are bracing for bad news.
  • Saw my cat cough once today - should I be worried?

    Saw my recently adopted 7-yr old cat cough first time this morning. I took a video of it but seems I can’t upload here. Anyway she coughed for about 15 seconds, stopped then meowed then just continued on with her usual routine. No hairball came out. Should I be worried?

    Cat Spraying

    I need some advice here. I don't know what else to do. I have 3 cats, all 3 are spayed/neutered. The oldest is a male, about 5 years old. I had him neutered before he turned a year old. For about the last year he has been spraying everywhere. I use urine remover spray like crazy. I added an extra litter box, there are 3 in the house. I have even tried keeping him in a separate room away from the other cats. I don't know how else to get him to stop. Does anyone have any advice?

    My pregnant cat has blood and mucus in her stool

    The title says it all. My cat who has no other symptoms of being ill has a bloody stool that looks like mucus. It is red but thick like mucus. This has been off and on for a few weeks. She eats and drinks very normally and seems to feel great. She plays and rests normally and she really looks and seems to feel fine but I am getting more concerned the longer this goes on. She was a stray but very friendly which makes me think she was dropped off. She even gets along with the other cats just fine.....
