7-year-old cat with "smoker's cough" !

You could try Googling for extra info and then phone call to your vet.

contacting news group

My ISP is IO Cablevision in NY. I am getting our newsgroup. At first it
seemed to have shrunk so much I almost downloaded a different provider for
newsgroups.

Cats too fat.

Good question. I only know I've read not to get cats to lose weight too
fast.

cat toileting outside litter tray

Sorry, misspelled, should be "medical issue", not "medial issue".

Has he been taken to a vet for a check-up? This could be a sign of a medial
issue.

We had our share of spammers and insulters but I was willing to overlook all
that-you're not forced to read every post. Looks like most of the spammers
got tired of us, anyway.

Yes, I had googled and learned that other sources are taking the place of
newsgroups. I'd been in this group along time and really hate to give it
up. I don't do facebook or twitter and don't...

Okay, I see my message posted. Had heard that Windows 7 is not compatible

With this new Windows 7 I suspect I am not getting our news group although I
installed it and have one message from yesterday (Wednesday).

Since she seemed to be enjoying life before the move, I'd give the steroids
a shot.

Medicating a recalcitrant cat

There's this stuff called Feliway. You plug it into the wall and it calms
down the cats. I used it once when I went away for a week and left a new
cat with my other cat. When I came home they...

Medicating a recalcitrant cat

I don't like the idea of the pet sitter transporting Meep unless it's a dire
emergency. My vet has a couple of vet techs who help him out. They are not
paid that well and would make house calls. ...

What do I need to know about pet sitters?

I'd used one of my vet's techs for several years for my cats. Then, my
neighbor across the street started a pet-sitting and errands business
because she lost her job. I knew her before and she's...

I've used a professional sitter once and he was great but he stopped doing
the work. I asked my vet and he recommended his assistants and I used one
and that worked out fine. My neighbor across...

What Are The Cats Doing?

It's nice when they knead you and a reminder to trim their claws. I do it
about once a month.

Moe is slipping away

So sorry about Moe. I've been following this story as an owner of black
short hairs for many years. Their life spans are shorter than ours so that
we can take care of them their whole lives. ...

Any large houseplants that cats don't like?

I planted an avocado seed outdoors and then brought it in for the winter.
It summered outside (in NY) for 5 years and is now almost up to the ceiling
and too big to take outside any more, I guess....

I'd go with the surgery. He deserves a chance. Good luck.

I love Maru (the box cat)

Interesting! But the swishing tail shows his anger so get him a bigger box,
okay?

Really loved your story.

I walk my cat outside on a leash. She only likes to walk on pavement which
is fine with me- less chance of fleas. The other cat has to wear a leash on
the back deck...
