  • My cat has scabs on her neck and is itching a little more than she usually does.?

    She doesn’t have fleas or ticks(I had her checked out), I don’t know if it’s a food allergy(just switched her food recently from Purina to Rachael Ray) so I don’t know if that’s the problem. And someone told be it might be that she has dry skin so I bought stuff for that. Please help!

  • Can pet rats and a cat live together peacefully?

    Best answer: In my experience rats are not bothered by cats. I had 6 rats which isn't a huge amount but none of them cared. Its going to vary from rat to rat and it also depends on the cat. Mine were never obsessive over the rats or desperate to get to them. If a cat did that I'm sure a rat would be stressed. But in... show more

There is no reason you cant have rodents and cats.

    hello! i'm having a lot of stress lately over my cat that's in good hands right now while i'm at school. long story short, my immediate family moved out of our home of 6 years and i currently have nowhere to go aside from the housing at school. i can't keep my cat in this tiny room even if i registered her as a therapy pet (the lack of space just seems unfair). she's been staying at my friend's place since mid-august, but every time i come to visit she hides from me. :^( this past visit she did come out more than last time and let me pet her more, but for the most part she refuses to interact with me. she isn't aggressive or mean, she's never been the type to be like that anyways, but my biggest fear is that she's forgotten all about me and thinks i'm a stranger. we've had her since she was 5 months old and she just turned 3. she spent almost all of her life bonding with me and my family and even more so this summer when i had to stay at an aunt's place with her before i could move into a dorm. the days of her greeting me when i come home from work and seeing me off when i leave seem so far away now that she's acting like this with me... she's all i have left of home and it absolutely devastates me to think those memories didn't stick with her and she doesn't know who i am anymore. :^( i just don't know what to do. please help!!!

    So there’s been a stray cat in our garden (sleeping in our garage) for a little while now. We always assumed he was feral however he did walk right up to us when feeding him but wasn’t affectionate before. Yesterday he started rubbing against or legs and hitting his head against our hand. He also rolls around on the ground in front of me and if I put my hand anyway near he reaches out to hit/ grab it. He hit me yesterday with no claws out. Today he came straight over to me and I rubbed him and he rubbed against me and jumped to try to rub his head off my hand. He then tried to hit/ grab me, jumping up using his paws. After that he again started to rub off me, roll around in front of me and let me run him. He then hit me again (again, no claws) and then, back to affection. Third time he hit me with a bit of claw (didn’t hurt much but still) I stopped then. When getting rubbed, he purrs really really loudly and often as I said rubs against my legs and tries to bop his head into my hand. However his tail is also wagging. Any insight ??

  • What color is my cat ?

    What color is my cat ?

    Best answer: Blue Tortie Point and White domestic longhair. While the pattern is from a Himalayan, Himi's don't have white on them; other option is a Ragdoll.

    However, she is neither breed - she is considered to be a domestic longhair.

    I live in apts and about 4 years ago the guy next door moved in and brought 2 cats who he keeps outside, they have been having babies like crazy and now there are like 20+ cats out here. The guys a drunk and a crack head so he wont do anything for them, ive already talked to him about it. I called my local shelter and they said they are overly full and would put most of the cats down, the cats are shy but not mean, i dont want them to be killed, if i had money id catch them take them to get fixed and let them back go. "They arent house cats wont make good house pets" i feed them daily but thats about all i can afford to do. I was told some states have catch and reliese programs where they catch wild cats, fix them and let them go, im trying to find a program like that but no luck so far.. anyone know how i can find one? Im in indianapolis indiana Marion county. Also theres a little tiny kitten out here whos sooo sweet, i have a friend who would take the kitten in but the kitten has liquid poo "i think, his tail and butt were all wet so i believe thats what it was from" but my friend cant afford to spend a few 100 right now "he just bought a new car" what could have caused it? Maybe it could be fixed at home?

At first I thought it was dried hand soap or something unrelated to the cat, but I just put it together tonight after catching the cat in the act. I realize this may be a UTI, but how urgent is it? Should I go to the vet literally ASAP? Please help me, thank you.
