Cat licking patio by The Mermaid
My cat (14) has started licking the patio - anyone know why he does this? Salt content? It seems very strange. Also, he just licks at his food and doesn't seem as interested as he used to be - have tried several types of food now. Do they do patio flavoured food???!!! ;o)

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...

cat having problems climbing stairs by yngver
Hi, our 8 year old cat has been having difficulty climbing stairs the last couple months. She can go downstairs okay but she acts as though it is an ordeal to climb up. She always uses one front leg and sort of hoists herself up. The vet checked her over and he found no signs of pain in her legs or...

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...

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...

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. ...

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...

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...
