    Toxic air from cat poop?

    My roommate keeps her cat's poop in a special box/trashcan next to the litter box in our bathroom. The smell gets so bad that it stings my nose and eyes. She doesn't empty the box of poop until it is full, which can be over a month or even two. The odor often carries over to my room since it is across the hallway from the bathroom. Should I be concerned about the ammonia and other toxic particles being released into the air?

    Kitty concern

    I'm a new pet owner and my cat (a Calico) who is 3 years old is having some potty issues. I first noticed some what appeared to be blood in her urine. She had been using the litter box well, then stopped. Is it a UTI? And how can I try to treat it at home?

    6-7 Wk kitten, two aussies and fleas

    I brought home a very young rescue yesterday and combing today found fleas which I figured. The kitten slept with my aussies last night and an hour today. I haven’t found anything on them today. If I treat them with the liquid in shoulder blades isn’t that dangerous for the kitten? Other than a few minutes on the carpet the kitty has been on tile and my bed ( of course) with the dogs. Do I wait and see if the dogs get anything? Will vacuum be enough if I keep kitty off it. I will wash bedding. But....

    Cat change

    I have a female, 12year old cat who is spayed and declawed and blind in one eye. Important detail, no changes have been made in the house in a year. Starting three days ago she was being very lethargic, normally she is extremely playful, and if she is sleeping and you try to mess with her she wakes up and moves away or purrs etc, the last few days if you try to move her when she is sleeping she is staying like she is asleep and not waking easy. She has not wanted to more from her two spots and has....

    Strange behavior

    Found one of our cats in the bathroom sink. This is very unusual. Later I found her in the kitchen sink which is something she has never done in the 5 years we have had her. She meows a lot and won't eat. Does anybody have an idea what might be going on with her? It's very cold here right now so I was wondering if that had anything to do with it, but I wouldn't think a sink would be a good place to warm up. We are very worried about her! This strange behavior just started this afternoon....

    Cat getting bald spot

    I have a female cat who is about 20-years old. She's in good health, has all her shots, etc. and was at the vet a couple of months ago. Lately, she's been losing fur on her back. It's not bald patches, but more like someone who is simply losing or getting very thin hair. This isn't an area she scratches or seems bothered by it. I've checked thoroughly, and don't see any parasites, etc., plus she stays indoors. Other than that and the fact when she meows it's almost like....

    Can toxoplasmosis live on carpets, floors, clothes after cleaning?

    Hello there! My kittens pooped a while ago on some clothes and the floor, and I didn't notice until recently. I heard that toxoplasmosis is quite hardy, and I'm wondering what type of cleaning will kill the toxoplasmosis, if they had it. Thank you.
