    Hi guys! So silly question and one serious one. Silly question first why does my sphynx kitten climb on me to go two inches from my face to sneeze? Is it a dominance thing? Is she trying to tell me she is sick? Why??? Serious questions: how do I train my kitten not to bite? She still has her...

    Throwing up, sneezing, and wheezing OH MY!

    Hi friends, I'm getting a little worried about my Baldy boy. He's been throwing up a few times a month- now about 3 times just this week.

    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?

    HELP! My Kitty is Always Sick!!!

    My poor baby ALWAYS seems to be sick and I can't tell if I am being paranoid or she really does get sick. My breeder was very reputable and I had her checked when I got home. A week later I brought her to the vet since she had weepy eyes and was sneezing a lot. They treated her for an ear...
