• Is it cruel to keep a cat indoors?

    I would love to adopt a pet cat, but I live on a very busy main road, in the middle of a city, and would only get a cat if I could keep it indoors at all times, as I'd be concerned it would get hit.

    I would love to adopt a pet cat, but I live on a very busy main road, in the middle of a city, and would only get a cat if I could keep it indoors at all times, as I'd be concerned it would get hit. I have plenty of room in my home for it to run around. I have a double living room, a large bedroom and long hallway that it could access. I also understand the importance of giving it extra attention, and buying lots of toys to keep it occupied. I have had a cat, previously, who hated going outside, so I'm used to having a cat who was indoors by choice. I would also be sure to get a young cat or kitten, so that it hasn't already got used to going outside. With all of this said, is it still cruel to keep a cat indoors? Are some cats naturally outdoor cats, or can any cat be trained to be an indoor cat? Please only reply if you know about the subject. Thank you very much.

She does it just for fun. She can smile, it's more of a grin. But laugh? No.

  • Is it safe use coconut oil on a cats toes?

    Before you jump down my throat to call a vet and look elsewhere, I have looked and also will talk to my vet, however, it's early Sunday morning, the usual vet is not open, and this isn't a life or death situation so I'm not going to travel out 3 hours with a very nervous cat to an emergency vet.

    Before you jump down my throat to call a vet and look elsewhere, I have looked and also will talk to my vet, however, it's early Sunday morning, the usual vet is not open, and this isn't a life or death situation so I'm not going to travel out 3 hours with a very nervous cat to an emergency vet. My cat has very dry toe pads at the moment, they're not cracked or anything. Just very, very dry, and I know some brands sell products for their pads to keep them healthy and moisturized but I don't have that right now sadly and so, I've read some different things saying to use cocoa butter, aloe vera, olive oil, all sorts of stuff. The most logical seeming one is coconut oil, because it isn't an outright liquid and will be easier to get on her feet without much fuss. I'm not worried about her licking it off because I plan to stay by her for a while, until whatever ends up being used "settles." But if she does somehow manage to, will it make her sick? Will simply absorbing it into her skin make her sick? Is there anything instead that I should use that you personally know of? Thank you!

  • My cat is locked in my roommates room, what do I do?

    I’m so upset. I’ve been listening to my cat crying, locked in the room of someone I rent to.

    I’m so upset. I’ve been listening to my cat crying, locked in the room of someone I rent to. I had a family event, so I had to leave and returned 3hrs later and my cat is still in the room, crying and wanting out. I tried calling and texting her and finally 5 min ago she responded. She called me and told me, it’s ok. I said no, don’t tell me it’s ok. I had to listen to her cry before you left and now I’m going home after 3hrs and I’m going to have to listen to her cry longer. Then I told her she needs to come home and let her out. She said she is on her way, but I could feel the tension. I leave Home at times and I have to leave the cat indoors during the day, but she atleast has access to her food and water and the entire home. I’m walking on thin water with her because I need her and I don’t think I’ve been her favorite person lately. How should I handle this without it causing more tension between us?

  • Are my parents right about giving my cat tap water?

    Best answer: The cat peeing outside the box has NOTHING to do with the water and everything to do with an unrinary track infection or crystals caused by dry cat food and cheap grain filled canned food

  • Will apple cider and water work for cleaning kitten ears?

    Best answer: No and it would be very sticky. If they have ear mites (black, crusty stuff in ears) you need to get mite treatment. Otherwise you don't need to put anything in their ears, just swab them out with a piece of gauze or a tissue on your finger.

  • Why is my cat so indecisive?

    He begs me to turn on the water faucet for him cause he likes fresh water, but then he just stares at it for 15 seconds until he finally decides if he wants to drink. Or he’ll beg to come outside and we open the door and he won’t come outside.

My vet said i can bring a new cat after 21 days if i clean my house continuesly. Is that true? Today i got rid of the toys, litterbox... everything that belonged to my old cat. And i cleaned the entire house with clorox and dettol and tide. I will keep repeating this method every other day. Will it be good? will the new cat be safe?

  • I woke up with a black stray cat sleeping on my chest what do I do?

    Best answer: Do NOT put him back outside. Obviously being declawed he is at high risk of death in a short time. If you want to keep him, then do so - take to a vet and have him scanned to be sure he's not chipped. If you don't want him, kindly call a cat rescue group in your area or a local shelter.
