  • Can You Give Human Birth Control Pills To Female Cats?

    I have two female cats, one is a feral cat that doesn't like being close to people and the other is the daughter of that feral cat, so I can't exactly get them spayed and the other non-invasive birth control options seem expensive. So I was wondering if they can take human birth control pills?

  • Should a cat be neutered?

    Is this harmful to cats? I've heard that de-clawing cats is harmful to them and prevents them from catching food, which is instinctual for them. Will this affect my cat in any way, other then not being able to have babies?

  • How much to charge for Lynx Point Siamese kittens?

    Best answer: Cats only "go for a lot" when you have pedigree papers to proove that they are purebred.

    "Big fluffy tail" suggeats to me that your cat may not be a purebred Siamese...

    You dont even know what color kittens you have yet.

  • How do I introduce my 6 year old cat to a 3 month old pitbull?

    I have a 6 year old female cat that I ve had since she was a kitten. She is (I wouldn t necessarily say spoiled) used to being the only pet in my room. My mom has a small dog in the living room, they get along cause she doesn t have to coexist with her as much. I tried rescuing a kitten and young cat that I found on the street once and she disliked both of them very much and even tried to attack them. She would go into different areas so we couldn t see her (not really hiding, just to get away from us) and she was very stressed about it. So I instead took the cat and kitten to the shelter. I m planning on getting a 3 month old pitbull puppy soon and I want them to get along. How can I introduce them and ensure they ll get along so I don t have to worry about my cat when the pitbull grows up?

  • Indoor cat and fleas?

    Best answer: I never had an issue with my indoor animals. I’ve had dogs thet go in and out sll day long. About 30 years ago I dealt with a flea infestation with one dog, it’s ownet insisted his dog was hyper allergic to fleas, he swore he inspected his chihuahua head to toe and she didn’t have a single flea on her. He was right. The darn dog had thousands of fleas on her, she was almost sucked dry, needed an emergency blood transfusion to save he life. All black dog, every time he flipped her on her back to look frfleas they scrambled into the deep thick fur. He wasn’t that bright of a guy.

    I ended up having fleas the all the dogs and the one cat we had as a precaution to prevent the house from becoming bug city. I vacuumed twice a day, sprayed the flea bomb, and used flea powder. Did not see a single flea after that. As a precaution I bug bombed the garden (profe cio ally to get rid of all the fleas and the over population of ants.

    Have used the preventitive flea oils then the pills since then, never had a single flea in all these years.

    If you comb Nd groom your animals on a regular if not daily basis you can prevent a lot of problems. You can feel lumps, cuts, bite,arks, bugs etc on the animal by runn8ng your hands all over their bodies, you also help bond with your pet by grooming them. You don’t think much of it but mutual grooming big in the animal kingdom. Some pets hate it because they were never taught to sit still. But after the first couple weeks my guys will bring me their brushes and lay belly up for me to get to work.

    So far over the years I have found and aved my dogs lives from infected bug bites, snake bites, animal bites (infected abscess) tumors, cancer, broken bones, found two wounds from being shot at, one was bb rifle the other was a 22 caliber in the butt, no blood, just a mat of mud and pine needles. I have also prevented matted hair that pull and kill off skin, hide foreign objects in their long and sometimes curley coats.

    While it’s time consuming to groom your dog every s8ngle day, it takes less then two minut s to run a pin brush through your stwndsrd poodle, labradoodle, collie or any other long haired dogs coat, main body, back, chest, butt, legs, neck and done, get the big chunks and wind blown mate out instantly for when you groom later that eeek it dowas want take hours but maybe an hour if you do a thorough job. Since you’ve kept up the dog all during thhe week you also prevent the giant flea infestation by finding flea dirt or the ones that would fall out when you do the brushing.

    This isn’t just dogs, long haired cats need to be kept up and occasionally bathed so if they ever really need a bath you don’t end up with half your face scratched off. All my cats love being in the shower. Mike isn’t crazy about an all,over wet Beth but loves the rain water feeling instead. Just stands quiet and let’s me rinse, soap, leather and rinse. I started him at 8 weeks old and he now jumps up to the sink when I put his bath mat in it.

  • Pet insurance or no?

    I’ve heard it’s a waste of money. Let’s say I get one cat, would it be best to put $40 away each month into an account Incase something happens? Or is it best to pay like 20-30 bucks a month towards pet insurance? I don’t get paid too much a month but 40 seems reasonable to save out of pocket. Since insurance is 20-40 a month

  • Now that there was a guy that suffocated a mountain lions with his barehands, is it possible or no?

    Throughout the attack, Kauffman said he was doing his "barbarian yell as best I could," and tried throwing the cat off him — which led to them both tumbling down a slope. "From there it was just like a wrestling match — it was thrashing and it still had my wrist locked in its jaws," Kauffman said. He added that he pinned down the cat's back legs using his left knee. He tried to throw sticks at the lion, but they were rotten and breaking. He eventually picked up a large rock and tried to hit the cat in the head with it. Kauffman said he was able to transition his body weight, moving his right leg up toward his wrist, and eventually was able to step on the cat's neck — suffocating it

  • How to tell neighbour there cat has been living with me for 6months?

    I have spoken with them before but that was when the cat visits were regular but could be varied. Now it has become clear the cat spends most of its time here despite being free to return home whenever. I haven't reached out to them in a while so I feel guilty. And the cat is so happy here I don't want to suddenly shut him out, if thats what you were gonna suggest. Best way to phrase it/tell them?
