IAMS vs Whiskas? by Lord_Alex
Hello all, I'm new to the group and somewhat new to raising cats (I had cats as a kid 10 years ago). At the end of April I decided my house was too empty, so I went to the local animal shelter and adopted two cats - a 6 month old female shorthair (Xerxes) and a 2 year old male Persian ragdoll with...

Do cats get hot spots? by Corey Kaye
Juliet is a 9 year old DLH. She was diagnosed with IBD several years ago and was on z/d for years. Right now she's on Innova cat food, and has not had any digestive problems. She's an indoor kitty that doesn't go outside ever. I have several other cats that are also all indoor-only. Today I...

My cat won't stop begging for food by Dom
It's all in the subject title. To give you a feel for things, my cat will beg (cry, poke at me, search the trash for food) as soon as I get home. I give him a 3oz can of gravy-lovers food, and a bowl of hard food, and he licks up all the gravy in the first and takes a nibble from the second, then...

Declawing: glad I took the time by [email protected]
Well, I posted here many months ago regarding a stray that we decided to spay and keep. She turned into a beautiful cat with a nice shiny coat. She's still outside, and she sleeps on the deck in a nice little shingled house that I built for her. She's a good mouser, and we live next to a...

Are Bengal cats really hypoallergenic? by Lalee
Hello, I have read from different sources than Bengal cats were hypoallergenic and from others that they were not! I was thinking about getting one as a gift to my boyfriend for our 6th anniversary but he is allergic to cats and dogs!! Would it be a good idea to get him one?

ants in the kitty litter by Jewelbar
Hi People! I'm just wondering if I should worry that there are ants in my cat's litter. They are only going after his urine. I know that if a person has diabetes, ants will be attracted to their toilets, so I was wondering if the same was for cats. He always looses weight over summer, but this...

There's Something About Mary by Karma
As a witness to the destruction and devistation that occurred years ago in rec.gardens.roses, I was quite interested to see what was happening when I was made aware that an eerily similar situation was happening in some of the cat groups. It only took a few moments to verify that the poster...

Must Discuss the Kitties' Welfair by Shylock
Hello, It has been announced the spill-well cannot be fixed. Soon there will be a stampede of human flesh. How are you going to handle your kitties.

Can cats get pimples? by Zorin the Lynx
This recently showed up on my cat's chin, and I'm just wondering if I should be concerned and schedule a vet trip, or if it's the equivalent of a pimple and will go away soon: http://zorin.org/share/temp/cat-pimple.jpg Any ideas? Sorry for the poor quality of the shot; it's hard to hold a cat...

Colour of cat = personality of cat? by Ellie Bentley
Stemming right back to Edgar Allan Poe's short story "The Black Cat" there has been a perception that "little black cat" is usually bright, intelligent, and utterly loving and devoted. (Although some times the bright intelligent black cat has been associated with the supernatural!) As for ginger...

How declawing saved my cat's life and gave him 6 more years (and counting) by He Who Walks
The cat was mom's and she died after a long illness. The cat had clawed up a lot of furniture in the house and no one else wanted the cat. The cat also had a skin condition which now necessitates a depomedrol shot each month. I took the cat on condition that it would be declawed so it...

OMG! One more reason to NOT declaw... by Sherry
I clean house for a veterinarian and was there today. It was her day off and she was home. She called me into her office for a moment to show me a photo on her palm pilot that was related to a paw repair she did to a declawed cat. I gasped when I saw it. I asked her to email it to me and when...

Sudden loss of mobility in front legs by turner.nigel
Hi, My cat had a sudden loss of mobility in both front paws. Our Vet says it is not a clot as she still has partial use of both paws and pulls away when you pinch her toes. She seems to have problems moving her legs toward her head. They seem to want to go towards her hind legs which makes her...

splay legs in 3 week old kitten by Mariaricardo
I hope there is someone out there who has had some experience (hopefully successfully), with splay legs in kittens. One of a litter of four born three weeks ago has hind legs that go out to the side, like a frog. He is able to walk and lift his abdomen up from the carpet, but his legs are weak. ...

Removing caked-on clumping litter from paws? by Robotech_Master
My geriatric kitty sometimes steps *in* her used litter instead of kicking dirt on it. And a good bit of it is clumped between her paw pads, but I can't really get it out of there without my cat yowling a lot as her hair gets pulled. Is there any good way of doing this? Also, on an unrelated...
