My boyfriend found a stray kitten in the parking garage of his building this weekend and we caught it and delivered it to the local shelter. But I can't stop thinking about this kitty. Should I go back and get this cat? Is this what "time to get a cat" feels like? [more inside]

Why might my cat only have diarrhea flare-ups on Sundays? This is a serious question that merely sounds insane--I am hoping MeFites can help me think of something I've missed. Possibly unnecessary warning: discussions of poop within. [more inside]
Please help me reduce the stress/separation anxiety and improve the behavior of my 3 year old dog. More inside. [more inside]
Meet Jill, the terribly shy, but sweet, 11-month old shepherd/lab (?!) mix we adopted last night. I think she needs 2 syllables. We like old-fashioned names. We already have Sally, the terrier of indeterminate origin and her predecessor was Gertrude. So far, Stella and Ethel are contenders. What says the Green?
My 15 year old cat is becoming more of a jerkface. He's always been a bigmouth, but within the past year he's ramped up the yowling. I took him in awhile back and the vet said there's nothing physically wrong with him, he's basically just an asshole (the vet was a bit more tactful). Now he's started attacking my other cat - they've been together for 10 years. What gives? What can I do? [more inside]
Hello everyone, My 10yr old cat Charlie developed a urinary blockage tonight and I rushed him to the emergency vet. Turns out he needs bladder surgery and possibly perineal urethrostomy. Has anyone been through this and did it turn out ok? [more inside]
I've noticed that all of my dogs (and most puppies in general) have had some irregular, dark splotches on their bellies and underarms (underlegs?) that fade with age. Kind of like liver spots on older humans, but larger and darker, and generally much lighter by about one year of age. What are these called, and can they be used to estimate a dog's age? Curious because I've noticed them on all of the dogs I've ever had, but nothing turns up on google, except for pathological conditions.
I went to the store to buy dog food yesterday, and ended up adopting a kitten. I have thought about adopting a cat for quite a long time, but have always talked myself out of it. Now I'm terrified that if we don't horrible mistake, and worry that I should give her back now she still little. [more inside]
This is Pasquale (my user photo). I’m considering asking our vet to try a pharmacological approach to his fear-based territorial/visitor aggression. Have you gone this route? Do you possibly have another (non medicinal) approach we can try? Apologies for the length inside. [more inside]

Last week I adopted two 12 year old cats, Mungo and Rum. They have been settling in well in all practical ways apart from the fact they are scared of me, hiss at me and won't be in the same room as me unless they can help it. I've taken three days off work next week, so with the weekend that's five consecutive days where I plan to be home so they can get used to me. How can I make the most of it? [more inside]
My parents' dog is not allowed inside the house. I let her inside for two nights because it was very hot -- 105F -- outside. But now any time I go inside and leave her alone, she's frantic and begs to be let in. She already has separation anxiety. [more inside]
