    My cat Sky came home limping and shaking the other day so we took her to the vet and they told us she was shot by a pellet gun and her leg was broken. She went through surgery well and she's doing really good, but i wanted to know what else I can do. Shes an outside cat so It'd be really difficult to keep her(and 2 other outside cats) inside at all times. I also called the non-emergency line and the policeman who came was a complete jerk, trying to justify her getting shot because she could have been on someone's property(there's also a leash law for cats which is ridiculous!). Use a water hose!! Its a cat for christs sake, not a bear! We live in a small neighborhood and Sky doesnt wander far so we were going to try to find out who it is. Would else can i do?

  • Is adopting a cat a permanent decision? Is it wrong to rehome a cat after adopting her for some time?

    6 months ago I adopted a house cat that was dumped on the street. Now I do not want her anymore.

    6 months ago I adopted a house cat that was dumped on the street. Now I do not want her anymore. I do not have a valid reason, it is just an accumulation of minor reasons like the following: - I have to be more alert when the cat is near my daughters as the cat sometimes to scratch or bite or hold their hair even without the intention to harm them. - The surrounding of the litter box is always messy. - There is cat hair everywhere, on the carpets, chairs, bed, sofa, my cloths, and some of them is very hard to be removed. I comb her hair frequently but this didn't solve the issue. - I adopted the cat just to experience of binding between cats and humans in the same house and now I lived this experience. - My daughters used to be afraid of cats and now they are not anymore which was one of the reasons I got the cat (to make them face their fears). - When my friends or parents visit, they start to get annoyed of the cat hair and show that are not happy. My question is it wrong to rehome my cat or find a new adopter without having a major reason for it? The cat I adopted was 4 months old and now around 10 months old if this makes a difference.

  • How can I get over the pain of a lost cat?

    My cat got out of the House about 2 weeks ago when I was leaving for college for an exam. When I came back there was his fur all over the yard.

    My cat got out of the House about 2 weeks ago when I was leaving for college for an exam. When I came back there was his fur all over the yard. I had no idea he had escaped in the first place, but that’s the actual moment of realization that I had. I ran home to hope he was there and that wasn’t his fur outside. But that hope was soon lost. He was nowhere in the house. I asked my neighbor (also a cat owner) and he said that there was a huge cat fight in the yard and the cats brawled and then one ran and my cat followed. The cat that supposedly fought my cat is a feral. I have since then seen that cat In the neighborhood, and his/her fur is hanging off its body and it’s badly injured. My cat is nowhere to be found. I am so heartbroken. I rescued this cat 2 years ago when it was a lost hungry kitten. We shared such a strong bond. He would never even eat without me holding him. I miss him so much. I don’t know what to do. I go out everyday to look for him. I’ve put up signs. I’ve informed the neighbors. I’ve gone everywhere. In nearby neighborhoods. No sign. How can I get over this loss?

  • Can anyone help me identify my cats breed?
  • Can you mix two or three different types of kibble/dry food for your cat?

    Dry food is not the main part of my kitten's diet. I feed her mostly wet food. The dry food is only for while I'm at work and only a carefully measured quantity is given. Usually some of it is left when I get home, she much prefers her wet food. Anyway, I worry that the dry food doesn't have all the... show more

I figure what one lacks the other might make up and vice versa

    A cat had kittens and one won't stop meowing at me. I found them in the back of my house cause I heard meowing.

    A cat had kittens and one won't stop meowing at me. I found them in the back of my house cause I heard meowing. I couldn't find the momma cat so I took them inside and gave them a bath and took out a bunch of fleas. After a while I noticed a momma cat around the back that looked like the kittens so I lured her with some food and took her inside with her babies. So the kittens a bathed and the momma is content. But one of the kittens won't stop meowing at me? They drink the mom's milk and everything, but for some reason one of the kittens won't stop meowing at me and only stops when I pick him or her up. They're super cute but unfortunately I can't keep them. :(

    PEOPLE. I have two male cats in the house. Both castrated as soon as they were old enough. One is 5 and one is almost a year old. Both are oddly gigantic. At least twice a night for the past week or so they’ve been doing this really weird thing that reminds me of when cats are mating. They lay on our couch together and then all the sudden the oldest cat gets up, leans over, bites the younger ones neck, and kinda spreads his back legs. He never does anything past that, not that he’s capable anyway. The first time I watched the whole thing unfold and after a few minutes of just staring off into space the younger one will fight back and they’ll go on as normal. Since then I’ve been swatting them away from each other but I’m just really confused and want to know what the heck’s going on.

  • Is clear sticky double sided tape effective to deter cats from scratching on a new couch?

    Best answer: Never tried it myself but people do say it definitely helps. A cat wont scratch tape.

    Best answer: Never tried it myself but people do say it definitely helps. A cat wont scratch tape.

    What I do is keep my cats nails clipped so that they can't do damage and them provide scratchers so they have appropriate places to scratch. I also just buy cheaper furniture. I have 6 cats and do dog sitting and I'm not about to spend thousands on a couch. I like ikea. They also have slip covers so if it gets ruined, you just buy a new slip cover. Not a whole new couch. Those slip covers have saved me from buying multiple couches and chairs because of dogs. Lots of pee (males sometimes mark the first day they are here), muddy paw prints and drool. Definitely recommend a slip cover if you get a dog.

    My rabbit is around 7 years old and my cat is 4. They are both outdoor pets. The cat is a lot bigger than the rabbit, but the rabbit keeps terrorising her when he’s out for a run in the garden. He’s never bit her or actually attempted to hurt her, he just keeps sniffing her and getting into her space which she doesn’t like. She’s swiped at him a few times but has never actually hurt him, but he doesn’t stop. Do you know why this is happening? Or how to stop it?
