    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!

    Low cost Neutering and Ketamine

    When I originally got Pierogi from the breeder I was in a much better place financially. I was living with cheap rent and good roommates, and working a job that paid well. That was months ago, and it wasn't long after I got Pierogi that everything started going down hill. Huge changes have taken...

    Can anyone answer my two questions?

    I thought I may as well put my two questions into one thread! One question being one that is starting to concern me and the other being a more general question. Any advice would be great. My Gabbi is 6 months old now. I'm just a little concerned with her breathing? Only when she is asleep/comes...
