What is my new kitty?

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!!
Kitten suckles on human skin
My kitten is 3months old and since I bought her at 6 weeks old from a vet she has tried to suckle on any part of my skin which is uncovered eg; arm, neck, hand. She is a happy healthy kitten with a good appetite and enjoys the company of my 10 month old maltese puppy who just loves her. The kitten does not attemped to suckle on the puppy but any member of the family with a bit of uncovered skin is suckled on. Has anyone encountered this behaviour in a kitten? if so I would appreciate any suggestions or comments on it. Thankyou
