    Allergies?

    So I have had Azrael for a few weeks now, and since day one he's had what seems like allergies. He can go hours in a day without symptoms, then he'll run into a new room, and have a sneezy booger attack. I got him from a reputable breeder that is a licensed Vet Tech, but I haven't asked her...

    Cold or worse?

    Hello everyone! I didn't think to put a thread here because I thought it was just a normal cold, but it seems to be getting worse for my poor baby Artemis.

    Hi guys! Poor little Fester is not having a great day. He's been sneezing pretty regularly for about 45 minutes and then he just puked up what could have been water, could have been bile?

    Sphynx boil?!

    Our Sphynx boy gets some pretty epic feline acne, we do our best to keep on top of it considering tictac likes to be a grubby boy!

    Help! I think Jack is sick

    Jack wasn't quite himself last night. He was very quiet and didn't eat his full dinner. Then this morning he didn't get up for breakfast, so I tried some treats, and he didn't eat those either. He feels warm (more than usual I think) but his temp said 100 F so that's ok. But then I noticed...
