Cat trying to trip me!
My cat Tinkerbell was a stray that I adopted at about 8 weeks old. She is very sweet, affectionate & loving most of the time. She does have about an hour in the evening when she goes crazy & gets into everything though!
Male Neutering & Fighting Back
Last fall I had a a 5 year old male outdoor cat neutered. We had this cat from the time he was 6 weeks old. About a month ago a large black male cat that has periodically appeared on our property came back. In the past the male I had neutered would fiercely fight this other cat and drive him away. This time, he just continued to get the crap beat out of him by the black cat. My neutered cat disappeared about a week ago and we assume he is dead. My husband blames me for this. He says that if I had not neutered him he would have been able to fight back and that by neutering him he had no ability to fight back. The same thing happened about 15 years ago. We had an outdoor male. I had him neutered and within a month he was gone and assumed dead. The vets all say that neutering a male cat lengthens their life. I am feeling really bad about this. Is my husband right?
What is the breed if this cat?
Can someone tell me what breed is this cat?

What is my new kitty?
I just got a new cat and the previous owner didnt know what breed it was. He looks like an American Short hair but his face is much slimmer than them so Im not sure.
Train Your Dogs Before It Trains You!!!
Everyone loves being around an easy-going obedient dog, but the larger picture is that an obedient dog sees you as his leader and if you are able to let your dog know he cannot get away with bad behavior, you’re well on your way to having an adorable, well-mannered canine companion. The best known approach has always been the “learn and earn” one, where your dog understands that he doesn’t get anything he likes until he does something you want.
Litter Box Issues
I have a neutered male Persian cat with litter box issues. Despite the fact that I keep his litter box clean, he constantly urinates and deficates just inches from where it is located in the hallway. Can anyone offer any insights into the cause of this particular behavior?
Has anyone given their cat a haircut? My cat's hair is longer than mine! I think it is too long, and I would like to give her an overall new "do" but I have heard cats get really freaky when you do this. Any experiences? Please reply.....
Cat pulling out her hair!
My two year old, long haired grey cat (approximately 7 pounds) has been
pulling out her hair for about three months. This all occurred after
getting her three year rabies shot. It was determined that the shot was
probably not the cause but it was probably what triggered the pulling.
Her skin in fine, not inflamed or red. The vet has ruled out almost
everything. We have another cat and he is just fine. It is probably
psychogenic alopecia but we have not ruled out hormonal disorders etc.
We felt that it was a lot of money to spend when she has every symptoms
of psychogenic alopecia. We tried a cone for two two week
periods, and that did not work. We have been doing environmental
enrichment, to no avail. There are absolutely no stressors that we can
find or think of causing this. She is perfectly healthy outside of the
hair pulling. She is active, happy and acting completely normal. We also
have a basset hound, but all three animals love each other and sleep
together- I highly doubt that as a stressor. We are looking for
advice on what to do. We live in the midwest so maybe it is the dry air?
We are hoping to hear from someone who has dealt with this before for
any suggestions. We understand it could be hormonal or something bigger
but without testing we don't know, but as I said before she is acting
perfectly fine besides the pulling. The other cat (her brother) is
completely healthy as well, ruling out any disorders or diseases that
would affect all cats in the household. Any help is appreciated!!
