    Split Personality in Cats?

    Before I start, this isn't the typical case where I'll be petting my cat, then he bites and runs off. I have the sweetest 9/yo kitty. I adopted him a year ago, so I don't know much about his life before. But then he changes. Today, for instance, he came from my room (he was just sitting there) all the way to the living room to attack my mom. He normally loves her, but he went at it today. When he does this sort of thing, he's a different cat- he moves differently, he has a wild look....

    Can a cat with a neurological disorder be given cat nip

    I am looking to adopt an 8 month old kitten with a neurological disorder and was wondering if I could give him catnip or toys with catnip in it to play with. I guess you can say it’s the new mommy jitters that is making me worried since this is my first special needs cat and I want to make him as comfortable and happy as possible.

    I lost my precious Boo

    He had pancreatitis that lead to cancer. He was 8 yr male, all black, medium hair and prettiest yellow eyes I ever saw. His last weight was 12, a yr ago he was 16 lbs. He was the one to eat dry food and water . He lost his appetite slowly. He would hide in my bedroom closet every day. I had to pick him up to join with me and with my other male cat, Tiger. I put him on the couch next to me. He would nibble some dry food just it. He did drink water. That appetite loss lead me to call my vet. Her assistant....

    senior cat and urinary crystals

    Sammy, my 12-yr-old cat, spent two days at the vet due to urinary crystals -- the first time for him. He was prescribed Hill's® Prescription Diet® c/d® Multicare and I've been feeding him both dry and canned. I have two 4.5 yr old cats whom I also feed the same because it's easier not to have to give them different food. They all like the food rather well. But, maybe 2 or 3 times a week, Sammy throws up his food soon after eating -- more when he eats the canned than the dry. When he throws....

    2 older cats

    One of my senior (indoor only) cats went to vet for grooming and got the lion cut which radically changed her appearance. When I brought her home, the other cat (male) went crazy, hissing, screaming and tired to attack her. I separated them overnight. Its no better today, they are separated by a glass door wall and he is growling constantly. If she moves around, he starts the hideous screaming and hissing. He has reacted this way occasionally towards a stray or small animal that comes up on the deck....
