    So my girl had this rash appear this morning. There are only two causes I can think of. She just mated with a new male and I know the scratches on the back of the neck are normal but could they cause her to break out? Her butt/vag area is red and swollen looking. Could he have been sick or...

    Spaying personality change?

    Today Sansa is getting spayed (most likely). I'm worried that it will change her personality, because even though she can be really crazy and gets into moods scratching everyone (playfully), it has grown on me and I don't want to see her any less rambunctious. Has anyone's female cat's changed...

    Couldn't be neutered....now what ?

    I took Luci for her appointment at the vets just over a week ago. Unfortunately, she didn't take too well to the anesthetic, and the vet ruled the operation as too much of a risk. So, she can't be neutered, but what am I to expect now? Will she just be on heat a couple of times a year, or will...

    I need a new loving home in IL

    Bella is a beautiful 3 year old female. She is very loving to me, tolerant to my husband, likes my daughter and hates my son for no apparent reason. I have watched him with her and he does nothing different than the rest of us and she hisses at him. She will bite (not hard) when she does not...
