    I have a 7 year old female cat who constantly pee s outside the litter box. She has some sort of crystals in her bladder that causes her discomfort and causes her to use the bathroom ANYWHERE, ANYTIME. Her vet said it s not curable but can be treated to make her more comfortable. We have spent thousands on my kitty for medication, tests, ultrasounds, etc. and my dad has decided he can t continue to afford paying hundreds evert month for her that don t work. Nothing has worked so far... We both love her dearly, but my dad wants to put her down. This uncomfortable disease will be with her forever, and honestly I can t deal with the carpet and house smelling like cat pee anymore. We have tried everything. New litter, new food, new boxes, new box places. Its horrible. :( I don t know what to do. I don t want her to die. But I don t want her uncomfortable either guys. Please help!

  • Need advice about my kitten, can anyone help?

    I got a new kitten about 4 weeks ago who is now 11 weeks old. She seems fine, settled in well, eating and drinking. Just doesn't like people touching her and has only just a bout 3 days ago let me even touch her. She also hates loud noises. I also have another kitten but he is 9 months old and she will let him clean her and play with him. well unless he is being too rough. Im just wondering why she is nervous and runs away. and when people put there hands near her she goes into a state. Either runs away or starts breathing quite heavy. Im thinking maybe she was dropped by the people who had looked after her untill i got her or, wheather it's to do with People viewing her at 2 weeks old and handling her too much and if she thinks she will get taken away again. I may be overthinking this but i just wondered if there was a reason she is like this. Also when i got her part of her fur was missing on her ear as if it was shaved off but i was never told anything. People seem nice but you never know. I may be just going on and worrying a bit much but i just wondered what other people think. so can anyone give me some advice? Why would you reckon she would be so nervous all the time? I know she has not been with me long but like i said before she seems to have settled in well.

    I have always had a fear of cats and my boyfriend recently got a cat a couple months. He loves his cat and I am happy to see him happy. I have nothing against the cat, but I get anxious when it is jumping or running near me. I ve tried to speak to my boyfriend about my fear and he just saids I m scared of everything and asks how I cannot love his cat. I tried to stay calm when I am near the cat but sometimes it is out of my control. Something that I ve brought up recently was that the cat shouldn t be going on the dining table we eat at. His cat spends the day outside under cars and in the streets until it decides to come home and rest. I think it is disgusting being we eat on the table and we do not know where the cats been. My boyfriend saids the cat can do whatever he s wants because it s his house. Another thing that gets to me is that the cat always comes near my feet or puts his face near my food yet my boyfriends lets the cat be there and saids it s ok. He prefers me to move. His mom has told him to remove my plate or put the cat next to her, but he saids no it s fine it s not his fault he s not doing anything. This has happened multiple times and I need someone to understand me. How can I help my boyfriend understand my fear? I am not telling him to get rid of the cat.

  • How to get over feeling sad about giving away pet?

    Best answer: This is a hard question. One that a lot of people are gonna drag you through the coals for... I'm so sorry, this IS something terrible to have to live with wether or not it was right thing to do.

    The only good reason to give up an animal because your having a baby is either one because you physically wouldn't be able to care for it. Or two, it's an aggressive animal that would hurt your baby given the chance.

    But the physically incapable reason is a short term thing. This baby will need less and less of your time as it grows older, and eventually will take on some of the responsibility of caring for it. A better option would have been housing it with a friend for the first few months, or boarding it for a bit.

    It really isn't unsanitary to have a cat and baby. In fact babies who grow up with animals have better immune systems.

    If you surrendered it to a shelter they will often let you take it back. Or if you have it to a friend they might give it back. I'm sorry.

  • Can cats tell if their owner is sick.?

    Best answer: I can tell you from experience a lot of different animals can tell when your sick or just feeling down. Not only cats and dogs but even horses. They use dogs now to detect cancer. Animals, especially pets have a great amount of empathy. People wonder if pets have feelings. I had to have one of my cats put down. She... show more
    Best answer: I can tell you from experience a lot of different animals can tell when your sick or just feeling down. Not only cats and dogs but even horses. They use dogs now to detect cancer. Animals, especially pets have a great amount of empathy. People wonder if pets have feelings. I had to have one of my cats put down. She had a tangerine sized malignant tumor on one of her kidney's. I took her back to my house so her friend of 11 years could see she was gone. Not that I just carried her out the door and she never came back. He was a 12 year old Siamese mix. he walked around her body, sniffed her, than sat down and didn't move for two hours. Animals grieve which means they feel. Think about service animals, the type that warn of an impending seizure, or if someone's blood glucose is way out of wack. They are super sensitive.
    "Like rat's abandoning a ship." They really did know a ship was going down. When animals start acting strange there is usually a reason. They sense impending disasters before they occur. They definitely sense when you are not well. My cat knows when to comfort me and when to give me space. I have also passed out to wake up to a paw hitting my face over and over. I had a horse who I'd had to walk over to the neighbors to wash the shampoo off because the well had short circuited. I jumped on his back after we got into our pasture, he wasn't the brightest horse, but he was sweet :) He decided he wanted to grab a bite to eat and he was so slick I slid down his neck and landed on my rump. He walked around in front of me, ****** his head to the side, looked at me, looked at his back, twice. Then he got the most ashamed look on his face I've ever seen. Like a puppy threatened with a newspaper. I was laughing. He reached out and nuzzled my hair, with that look. I got up, dusted off, and proceeded to ride him the rest of the way back to the barn, with no more pit stops. I think that probably more than covers your question!

I got another cat from a breeder and I thought maybe they didn't keep up on his eye care as he was a Persian and didnt dwell on me until after we got home. The cat was sneezing and coughing and despite being in quarantine away from my other cats, they got it! Herpes was diagnosed by the vet. Can I put a claim against these people? They did not disclose this cat was sick and now my beloved cats that I've had since 6 weeks are sick and will now be sick for the rest of their lives.
