• Is it 'disgusting' for a cat to sleep in someones bed with them?

    Best answer: Look, my cats walk on the counter after taking a dump (I wash my counters a lot). Do you think I care if the cat crawls under the covers with me? I encourage it. Seriously though why does she think it's gross? I also let dogs sleep on my bed. Don't see an issue with that either. I dog sit and have watched... show more

    Seriously though why does she think it's gross?
    I also let dogs sleep on my bed. Don't see an issue with that either. I dog sit and have watched over 100 dogs and have never had a dog that rolled in poop, dead things or anything gross. The worst I have gotten is muddy paws or a wet dog from rain or snow and you clean their paws and dry them off before they go onto furniture. Most don't eat poop or garbage and if they try I just prevent them from doing that. I have never had a dog nearly as bad as what Star described. They stay pretty clean.
    Also gonna point out that anyone who showers in the morning is gross when they crawl into bed.

  • Is it ok to release my cat to the wild if I can no longer take care of it?

    Best answer: I don't see why not. If cats are allowed to run loose and kill birds, then they can be the prey. What's good for the goose.

  • I'm getting concerned of my elder cat.?

    Best answer: There are few places that will take an elderly sick cat, but I believe the reason why you're being told to put him down is because he is 20, and cats rarely, if at all, bounce back from kidney issues. It's a very steep cost for what, the cat to live another 3-4 months? As a pet owner, this is a very hard... show more
    Best answer: There are few places that will take an elderly sick cat, but I believe the reason why you're being told to put him down is because he is 20, and cats rarely, if at all, bounce back from kidney issues. It's a very steep cost for what, the cat to live another 3-4 months?

    As a pet owner, this is a very hard choice to make. I completely understand, but paying all that money to simply prolong his suffering so you can keep him around seems a bit...selfish. I think the kinder thing would be to put him to sleep. I had a choice with my almost-3 year old cat who contracted FIP; pay the vet another $200 (on top of the already $1000 for the diagnosis, x-rays, tests, and blood work) for steroids to keep him alive for 2 months or pay $130 to put him down, then and there. He was skinny, could hardly walk, didn't eat, and was crapping out nothing but liquid...why in the hell would I prolong that? It was a heartbreaking decision, but when I look back, it was the absolute best. For about 4 months before that, I was trying everything I could to keep this cat alive and fed and watered and it was becoming exhausting, but I did it for my baby boy. I didn't know at the time that he contracted something fatal.

    You've had 20 years with this cat. It's time to let go.

  • Why did my cat poop while I was holding it?

    It just happened. I was playing with it and it just started crying like somebody is killing it and just took a dump. Explain why?

  • Is my cat possibly rabid?

    I was gently poking its nose with a small needle when it suddenly became aggressive, kicked me with its hind legs and tried to bite me so I gently tapped it on the head and locked it outside until it calmed down. Thoughts?

  • Why do some cat owners allow their cats to poop in other people's gardens?

    Best answer: Because they are inconsiderate pet owners. Our cats are 100% inside cats - they have a litter pan so I don't have to worry about them pooping in neighbor's yards. IMO cats should be confined to your own property same as any dog.

  • How to introduce a cat to a new home?

    Best answer: There isn't a right or wrong, or a 'done' way, because every cat is different and every domestic situation is different. You can only take it home and see what happens.

    I adopted a 7 week old kitten about a week ago. When I picked him up he was covered by his and his siblings feces, but I didn t think much of it. When I got him home I cleaned him and introduced him to his room, a closet with a litter box and bed. It was pretty clear early on that he had no litter training because he pooped everywhere. I changed strategies and got two small litter boxes with two different litters and put them both in the closet with him. He poops in them but also everywhere else. The worst thing is that when he poops, regardless of where, he sits in it, stands in it, sleeps in it. So he is constantly covered in feces. I have been bathing him everyday because he is completely coated in poop. This can t be natural. I ve tried showing him how to burry it, but I don t think he understands. I clean his room everyday and I don t know what to do. He poops in his bed, on his toys, on himself. Nothing is working please give me advice!!! I have been doing this for a week.

  • Why did my transgender cat (formerly Mr. Sparkles, now just Sparkles) stop using his/her pink litter box? Is he/she detransitioning?

    Best answer: Possibly when the "mr" was dropped he/she took the sparkles part to heart and want the litter box decorated to celebrate the transition.

    yesterday my cat was showing all the symptoms of going into labor, though we hadnt known she was pregnant - shes a stray we let in and stay with us she had begun leaking a reddish fluid, and then stopped. she even expelled some sort of sac and then ate it (gross) but since then, she hasnt pushed anything out. its been almost 24 hours, but she seems completely fine. Shes eating, using the litterbox, being affectionate and has jumped up and down from our couches without issue. will she be alright? shes still hard in the belly, so i think she still has something in there, but she may be delaying her birth because we already have one newborn kitten in the house that we've been taking care of (she growls and nips at him). i dont really know what to do, since we can barely afford to feed the strays we have around - theres very little chance i can take her to the vet because i simply cannot afford it and im terrified that she may become ill. thank you in advance

  • How far can cats jump without injury?

    Best answer: Cats can climb. So they jump up then use that momentum to keep going by using claws to scale. My cat caught a bird, then released it into the house. It flew into kitchen to the top of cabinet near the ceiling. My cat jumped up, scaled countertop and cabinet to catch it then scaled backwards to not fall from that... show more
    Best answer: Cats can climb. So they jump up then use that momentum to keep going by using claws to scale. My cat caught a bird, then released it into the house. It flew into kitchen to the top of cabinet near the ceiling. My cat jumped up, scaled countertop and cabinet to catch it then scaled backwards to not fall from that height. She did this in a blink of and eye. Also...cats use 'stairs', I keep a plastic jar of catnip on top a tall cabinet in livingroom. When she wants some, she will jump on TV stand, then jump ontop of cabinet and then push plastic container to floor in front of me, signaling she wants some. She also will jump on chair, then onto kitchen table to watch everyone because she tends to be in the way and gets stepped on. She only scaled fthe fridge once, and it was too tall to jump down and meowed to me to get her down. When she scaled the cabinet to catch the bird it was pure instinct to scale back down without falling, but curiosity led her to the top of the fridge and it was six feet to the floor...too far for her to jump without injury.

    I woke up at 2 in the morning and my front door was open. One of my cats is no where to be found. He has never been outside more than 25 minutes and never been outside unsupervised. It's been 14 hours since I found the door open and who knows how many hours it was open before that. I am heartbroken. I've looked everywhere for hours on end. I am pretty sure something happened to him. He would not go far and if something spooked him he would just run back inside the open door. I left the door open somehow. It's my fault that he is hurt or stuck or dead
