• Cat smelled my vape! Is that ok?

    I was playing around with my vape and my cat was beside me. It was turned on and my cat came over and smelled it directly in front of the mouth piece. I didn’t know it was bad for cats until I did some research after, and now I’m really concerned. Is my cat going to be okay?

    I’ve just come back from putting my cat down...the vet discovered she had a massive tumour in her jaw. Previous to this, this poor cat when thru dental surgery where they thought she had extreme decay, 12 or her teeth were extracted. Now one month after the surgery and two additional vets saying bloody discharge in both her eye and mouth was normal, we saw another senior vet today who informed us she had a huge tumour growing in her jaw. We visited this veterinary clinic over three times in the past month...they would have had to have know she had a tumour. I feel like I was completely played, they’ve gotten over $2000 out of me for “dental surgery “, using every scare tactic on me, knowing this poor animal was suffering. She even had blood work and xrays done, they came back normal I am livid that my poor cat was living in such pain for months. And I am livid that I trusted that these people knew what they were doing. Over 5 different vets (from three difference clinics) assured me that pain medication would help her and she and her healing was perfectly normal. What are my rights? And what should I do? Can I sue and is there a point of going to an organization like peta to help? Thank you

    I usually have female pets simply because the 1 male cat and 2 male dogs I've had peed all over everything and I never could break them of it fully. The cat was the worst and that was the only time I've ever re-homed a pet. I'm interested in getting another kitten maybe a male this time because I like their personalities. But I'm really gun shy regarding the territory marking. Can you tell me of your experiences with that, what you did and if you would ever get a male cat again?

  • Why is my kitten pooping diarrhoea with bright red blood?

    Best answer: You need to take kitten to the vet. Hopefully, a vet is open, being it is the weekend, so that means getting on the phone right away and calling. Bring a sample of the poop, if possible, but even if you don't have a sample, go there with the kitten. Often, stress can cause diarrhea, so this may contribute to... show more
    Best answer: You need to take kitten to the vet. Hopefully, a vet is open, being it is the weekend, so that means getting on the phone right away and calling. Bring a sample of the poop, if possible, but even if you don't have a sample, go there with the kitten.

    Often, stress can cause diarrhea, so this may contribute to the problem, but anything with blood in it is cause for concern. Often, with a new kitten or pup, a change in food can cause trouble, but it is assumed the kitten was not eating while in the car. If he was, a different food may have added to the trouble.

    Parasites can cause a lot of issues. This may or may not be "worms", but other things such as as amoebic or protazoic parasites such as giardia or coccidia can cause issues, which are NOT controllable with normal wormers. DO NOT use otc products, especially for a kitten already experiencing diarrhea. GO TO THE VET.

    If you can't find a vet open this weekend, you can try putting some canned pumpkin in his food. In general, you should find out what food the breeder used, and use that same food, but in the case of a kitten not feeling well, just canned food might be advised. Add the pumpkin to that. Canned pumpkin is a general stabilizer for either diarrhea or constipation in cats, dogs, kittens or puppies - BUT, this DOES NOT replace vet consult or treatment.

    Once kitten is feeling better, use 1 cup dry food/2 tablespoons canned/1 cup water, feeding about three times per day at 3 to 4 months, as much as the kitten will eat. Young kittens should not be limited in amount of food, until after about 8-12 months.

    Remember that diarrhea can cause dehydration, so take it slow in feeding until the diarrhea settles down, and CALL THE VET.

    There are also serious diseases that can also cause diarrhea with blood, so if it continues, look up: distemper in cats - but it is assumed the breeder vaccinated for this.

    Kitten may have been upset with a ten hour drive. DO NOT feed Purina dry food to cats with sensitive digestive tracts.

  • My cat is 1 and we have had her since she was a kitten. For the past 3 days she has been distancing herself from family. Any ideas?

    Normally she loves to be around family and be in the same room. Now at random times you could be petting her and she will run into the bedroom closet and just lay down. No signs of pain or discomfort. Her diet has slowed.

  • Was I right to spray my cat with water after he scratched my kid in the face?

    Best answer: If it was a mist of water, don’t worry about a thing. If you sprayed it with a hose, then that’s pretty messed up.

  • I have a theory that cats can be herbivores?

    pandas are naturally carnivores but have evolved to become herbivores by picking the right plant to eat to sustain their protein needs. i think in the future, we can breed cats that can be pure herbivores through modern science. do you agree?
