• How wrong is it to declaw a cat?

    I was going to get a cat soon. I'd like to get him declawed but, everyone keeps telling at me about how bad it is. I have delicate skin so I can't get scratched up all the time. My friends cat was playing with my arm and now I have scar. Would it be wrong to declaw it? BTW it would always be inside.

  • I adopted a declawed cat, what health issues should I be looking for?

    I adopted a cat recently, and she's already been declawed. I've heard about health issues but I'm not sure what specific issues this raises for a kitty and even if I did I wouldn't know how to look for them. Any help?

    He died about a month ago. Lived 16 years (2001-2017), and lived mostly outside but slept in our garage. I've been thinking about him a lot, and was wondering what the possible cause of death was. I wasn't at the house when it happened, but my Dad said that he got the cat out of the garage so he could walk around. Freddy (my cat) didn't walk like usual. He sat down. My dad tried to get him to move, but he didn't. He noticed that Freddy's front paws were swollen. Right then and there, he had a spasm like thing and died. I came home, and saw is front paws still swollen. Twas a sad day. Does anybody know how he died?

    Mocha, our 15 year old Ocicat went DEEP into hiding the other day, which was not like him. Yesterday we finally had to dig our way to Mocha and found him dead.

I thought I'd prepared myself for that possibility, but I was inconsolable. Although we have several other cats, Mocha was very special and (along with his inseparable BFF Abigail) was my husband's nightly "couch buddy" and even he shed a tear or two when we buried him yesterday.

  • Do you ever bath your cats or is it a complete no no.?

    Best answer: Absolutely not, cats hate water, so bathing them would be animal abuse, besides, cats groom themselves so don't need bathing.

  • My ex won't give me my cat back?

    Before the breakup I was travelling so he was looking after my cat, Waffles, and he broke up with me the day that I got back. I was also moving so I said he could look after her for a bit longer. We had an agreement that after I would take her back after I move. Now that I have moved in, I asked for my cat back and he said no and that it’s his cat now. All of my cat’s paperwork (vet bills, adoption files from the humane society, the city of calgary’s pet license, Waffle’s microchip tag etc) are under my name and he has 0 paperwork with his name on it. I sent an email to him and his mom shown in the attachment. I’m just wondering if any of you are in the same boat and if you’ve won the court cases easily. I love my cat and I care for her so much, I would never just give her away to anyone. I trusted him to look after her and now he’s just being so difficult. I just want to bring her home and I’m really frustrated:(, let me know if you guys have any information!

  • Should you give cows milk to cats?

    Best answer: Well you shouldn't because it's bad for them, but I give mine a special cat milk which is specifically made for cats which I give her every couple of days or so, but water is still the best drink to give them.

  • Can you fix a cat s bad behavior or are they set in their ways?

    I have what I would say is a lovely cat named Gracie. I am the only one that can say that because she is mean to everyone else that comes over.

    I have what I would say is a lovely cat named Gracie. I am the only one that can say that because she is mean to everyone else that comes over. She doesn t seek people out to attack it is only when people approach her. If people go to pet her she will go straight to biting and for repeat offenders she goes instantly into defense mode(growling, hissing, swatting). I got her from a guy giving her away for free at walmart when she was already an adult and she was the first cat I have ever owned. I will never give her up she is a perfect cat around me but when it comes to other people she is a completely different cat. Is there a way to prevent her from feeling threatend by other people? I have noticed that before all petting she has to sniff your hand and then she bows her head to allow petting. No one can pet her stomach. If she is settled down somewhere it is a fight to get her up (biting, upset meowing). I try to explain to people that she just likes to be around people, but isn t a cat that you can just walk up and pet because of how she was previously treated and never really learned how to trust people like a typical pet cat does. Should I just shut her away when people are over? She always cries when I do because she wants to be around me and everyone she just doesnt want to be bothered it seems.
