    So my kitten Luna had a bad reaction to the pain medication she was prescribed after her spay. We were in and out of the vet all weekend and since then I've been giving her new pain meds and antibiotics by mouth, which she hates. As well, she loves to run and jump but I've been trying to limit...

    Elf trying to mount Sphynx

    Does anyone have a male and female, both fixed (neutered and spayed), yet the male tries to mate with the (very uninterested) female? My Elf was neutered at 10 weeks, but since he turned 1 year old, he seems to have these daily urges where he wants to bite my spayed Sphynx on the neck and mount...

    Kitten spay post-op questions. (New cat parents)

    Hi everyone! My kitten Chashu got spayed and microchipped this afternoon. The vet said she would be sleepy most of the day then back to normal tomorrow. This was NOT the case.

    Should I spay or neuter my sphynx cat?

    Reasons for spaying/neutering Greatly reduces behavioral problems like spraying in both male and female cats. Cats that are altered live longer lives according to statistics. Neutered male cats live 40% longer lives than those not neutered. Female cats if not spayed and not bred can develop...

    To spay or not?????

    I'm debating whether or not to spay Stella.......she's 10 is my first concern. Of course I would have blood work done first..... But do I really need to have her spayed, my other cat is fixed, she's going to be inside so no chance of getting pregnant. This is my first female cat and I've...

    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...

    Scar/wound after spay?

    Do you guys think this is healing normally? My friend (who has many cats) said it just looks like scar tissue. She did have dissolvable stitches in, but on her checkup visit to the vets, they removed most of them as I told them she had been pulling at them with her teeth. (She was determined to...
