I have 8 cats, 2 of them were astray and the other astray is food addict.  She meows even after they ate. She's my clean-up kitty... she cleans all the food bowls.  When it is time for us to eat, she's there watching us... but I love her. more

Is the cat suffering from internal injuries? I would suspect that the dogs may have injured her.  Internally injuries can happen even if their are no external ones.  If your kitten is not eating or drinking - internal injuries are very likely the cause. The owners of the dogs would be responsible for any vet bills as the dogs came onto your property (it would be different if the cat had... more

It's normal for cats and any other animals to nibble on grass from time to time because it's kind of a medicine for them. For example they have an itchy throat and they just have a need to eat grass, it's perfectly normal. just make sure that the grass your cat is nibbling on is clean though. more

Without seeing the growth, it is hard to imagine what it is that your cat has. If it is small, it could be a wart. Where is it on the paw? Is it on the pad or in the skin on the top? It could be a sebaceous cyst or a histiocytoma. I would not put anything toxic on this lesion. Bathing it wiith warm salty water could help or daubing a little diluted eucalyptus oil would not hurt the animal. Perha... more

They need to be at home with their mother for a few weeks to receive her breastmilk.  After that, kittens do not usually sell.  They are often free to a good home.  Advertize this in local shops.   Also, local animal shelters should be able to find them good homes.  I am not sure where you are, but in the UK the RSPCA will be able to help and advise you. more

If the hair is coming out mostly at the base of the tail and on the top, this could be a condition known as "Stud Tail" and is common in tom cats - not neutered males. To fix the problem - neuter your cat. If the hair loss is on the rump of the cat, I would suspect a worm or parasite problem. You can get wormer for your cat (be sure it works for tapeworm too), or could be fleas, or other problems.... more

I have not had that happen myself. Is she spayed? It could be a hormonal thing. Are the male cats new?  Is she being territorial. If she is not spayed that is the first thing I would do.  If the males were new I would go back to square one with introductions, confining the males to a bathroom or other room for 2 weeks. If she is being aggressive you might give her a squirt with wate... more

Let's stick with feline gangliosidosis.  It's extremely rare, incurable and unpreventable.  Cats get 2 types, but both are fatal.  Any cat or kitten with it will eventually need to be put down, but each cat can still live for months or years comfortaly with the condition.  Kittens usually do not show signs of gangliosidosis until they are at least 2 months old. more

Your cat might be trying to tell you something, such as it is upset about something, some change in the home perhaps. Or it could have a bladder infection or other urinary tract problem. http://cats.knoji.com/what-to-do-if-your-cat-is-not-using-its-litter-box-for-urine/ If it is a new kitten perhaps it just did not get properly litter trained (common in farm kittens) or did not know where the l... more

Assuming you want something to calm Rusty's fears of going to the vet, Bach Essences Mimulus given before the visit is an all-natural way to calm the cats fears. Follow the directions on the bottle to apply the drops in enough time before the visit so that the product has time to work. For cats that have panic attacks or extreme fear may need Bach Essences Rock Rose. If you are referring to someth... more

Sounds like the introductions were not handled correctly. The new kitten should have been confined to a small room for a couple of weeks before they were let out together.  Generally speaking it is not wise to get a young kitten when you have an old cat - kittens need kitten food and your old guy should be on senior food - it can be bad for either to eat the other's food.   Here is how ... more

I'm also a cat mom, and I found a great way to deal with this is to purchase a vinyl table cloth that has cotton lining.  Cut it as large as you need it to be, turn it over so that the cotton side faces up and cover the area where your kitty likes to rest.  If it's on a couch, be sure to cut the piece long enough so that the urine won't run down in-between the cushions.  When the ta... more

Both cats and dogs have a “third” eyelid, known as the nictitans membrane. It’s function is to protect the eye and re-wet the cornea with tears, keeping it clean and shiny giving the animal clear vision. This inner eyelid is not usually seen when the cat is awake. Many times when the animal is completely relaxed, the lid may be visible. However, when startled the lid should quick... more

Hi There are many reasons why a cat might not use his litter box. If he appears to be spraying on things, like vertical surface, neutering him might help. The other reasons could be that the litter box is not clean enough for him, some hate using a box even if it is the littlest bit dirty - some people have 2 litter boxes, in different parts of the house. What kind of litter?  Cats prefer no... more

The only known mammals that experience menopause are humans and orcas (killer whales.)  Cats, although less fertile in old age, can still get pregnant.  Please get the cat spayed as soon as possible, as her kittens will add to the pet overpopulation prolem.  The Humane Society of the United States claims that about 4 million unwanted dogs and cats are killed each year in America bec... more

A pregnant cat will normally start looking for a secluded place to give birth a few hours before she actually does. In the last week of her pregnancy a queen will increase in weight dramatically and her sides will look much bigger than normal. more
