  • My 22 yr old cat won't eat anything but these certain treats and a little heavy cream but any time she does she pukes it up. What can I do?

    She stopped eating her hard food about a week ago. She seemed to puke it up quite a bit prior to that. I have tried to give her boiled chicken, at least 8 different types of soft food, baby food, some bakes chicken and some healthy treats and heavy cream.

    She stopped eating her hard food about a week ago. She seemed to puke it up quite a bit prior to that. I have tried to give her boiled chicken, at least 8 different types of soft food, baby food, some bakes chicken and some healthy treats and heavy cream. The only thing she will eat are the treats and some of the heavy cream. She is now puking up the treats. She drinks water, uses the bathroom, is still sweet, social and jumping up on the couch for snuggles. She is hungry and wants to eat but nothing is appealing to her. Is there anything a vet can do? What are my options for my sweet girl?

  • Cat that acts like a dog?

    Best answer: Some cats that like to swim (not in deep water) are the Turkish Vans. But there are no breeds of cats that would like all what you want in a "dog".

    Best answer: Some cats that like to swim (not in deep water) are the Turkish Vans. But there are no breeds of cats that would like all what you want in a "dog".

    Most cats can be trained to enjoy riding in a car, walking on a leash (tho not like a dog would but you would just be following them around), or doing basic commands.

    Training cats is not like training dogs - you need to work with the individual cat to see what they are best at doing naturally.

  • How often do female cats go into heat?

    My cat went into heat for the first time like not even a month ago.. She's went out of it and came right back into it 3 Times since.

    My cat went into heat for the first time like not even a month ago.. She's went out of it and came right back into it 3 Times since. I don't know why, but I feel like its the most annoying thing in the world. We have a small place so she screams and moans and tries to rub her butt all over everything. It's an ALL NIGHT THING. she LITERALLy makes that screaming and gurgling noise constantly. I've had cats before, but they were always male. They pee on stuff, but I almost long for that compared to this. I don't have a lot of money, and have family to support, so getting her spayed quickly isn't going to happen. It'll probably take me a few months just to save up the money. I had no idea they came in and out of it like this. I literally am a walking zombie because she makes it impossible to sleep. I wouldn't get rid of her, I'm just being truthful. I'll never own another female cat after her unless I have the money to get her fixed immediately. Holy crap.

    a house across me has been moving out of their home, i've never seen this cat before but it was on the driveway of the house. i walked past the house on my way home and it followed me and immediately began rubbing against me and wouldn't leave my leg. i have no idea if this is their cat since these people only come once a blue moon to retrieve things from their house but there's no cars and the house seems completely empty. the cat wouldn't leave me door step (i had to fend it from coming inside.) my friend suggested feeding it and it's just been sitting there staring so i let it in (i know i know) and now im here with a cat laying on my foot. what should i do? i dont know if it's stray or the old owners just leave him here all night while they're at their new house? also, is this illegal to have him in my house for the night?

  • How to transition an indoor cat to an outdoor cat?

    Please no lectures about it being bad to have an outdoor cat or the dangers to them. I am very aware of that and this is why I am doing all the research possible first including asking here. My female kitten (almost a year old) is still peeing on clothes. At first it was only clothes left on the ground but now it's in drawers and this morning she peed on my boyfriend's work clothes that he had on the counter! He said I have 3 days to find her a new home or make her an outside car. I know itll take more than 3 days to do this and I know he'll be flexible with that because he was really mad when he said that but has calmed down now. Still I dont want him to have to deal with that anymore she's peed on his clothes many times and hes put up with it many times so I think it's only fair I do something about it now. I can't just get rid of her though someone could just put her in the pound and all the same dangers of an outside cat could happen there too if she ended up being let out. So I just want some advice on the safest way to make this transition for her. I will get her microchipped and get a collar with a nametag and my number. I'll also make sure she's up to date on vaccinations which she should be because it was just in October that we got her and took her in for her shots shortly after. She's spayed too so that's not a concern. Just wondering any steps to take to ensure she doesn't run off and if there's a way to train her to stay out of the road.

    Best answer: Unfortunately, there isn't much prep time, so she will be unhappy with the vet.
    Get feliway, its a pheromone that will help calm her down, spray that in the carrier, and put her in.
    A good vet will understand if a cat that is in pain and scared won't be nice.
    Ideally what you should do is leave the carrier out. Let her sleep in it and play in it. This way the carrier isn't a scary place. Pick her up and put her in it, then walk away. That way its easy to put her in it. Then put her in the carrier and close the door for a minute, then open it again. Then when she is calm with all of that take her for a quick ride in the car. This gets her used to the carrier and the car. Unfortunately because she is hurt, none of this can happen, so you are just going to have to deal with an upset cat.

    Ive read about just a million links to “how to make your cats get along.” I dont think its that my old cat hates my new cat, she is fearful of him. I have a 3 year old female cat (lily), ive had her for almost 2 years. I have had a NEW 3year old male cat (mj) for about a week. He grew up in a household of about 4 other cats, so he is ok with wanting to be her friend. Lily wasnt. So she is scared of him. She little ears go down and her tail is tucked in and she hisses and even uses her claws. I’m scard this is not only a fear but this is part of her personality. But its kind of “good” if its a fear because that means she can get “over it,” right? Will cat pheremones help? I am sceptical of them. Weve tried putting them in carriers (at diffrent times) but lily KEEPS hissing! Mj doesnt fight back, he just gets sad and walks away. But i can they like each other because they sometimes look for each other in the house (mostly mj looking for lily). Ive only had mj for a week and a day, and i KNOW its too little time to tell if they will work out. I just feel there is a better way to do this.

    I have a 2 years old cat, she has been afraid of her carrier since we got it, like a year now. We take her to the vet with it and also travel with her in it. She always gets too aggressive whenever we want to put her in there and runs away to hide cause she is scared, but the weird part is that generally she is like really calm, never scratches anyone and she is playful. So when we fanally manage to put her in, she pees in it when we are on the road cause she is scared to death. And i really don’t know how to get her be confortable with it, she probably thinks she is going to the vet or something?

    Is the cat eating and drinking like normal? Is it especially hot right now? Sometimes cats try to find cooler places when it is too hot. If it is especially hot but the cat is eating just watch her for a couple days and see if she returns to normal.

    If she's not eating, or is urinating outside the litter nox, you need to get her to the vet.

    Get her to the vet.
