URGENT CAT HIDING QUESTION

I am watching my co-worker's cat because she had to move to a place where you can''t have cats. We can't find the cat and I am afraid she escaped from the house. However no one saw her run out of the door and no doors were left open. We have a resident cat who likes to run out of the house so we are extra careful when we leave. I think the cat might be hiding but my boyfriend thinks that is unlikely because he looked for her ALL day. Have you ever lost a cat inside your house?

Cat acting starving, but has gained weight. What ELSE can I do?

My "new" cat, Tiny, has gained weight after becoming an indoors-only cat. The vet thinks she should lose about a pound. I have cut down her food just a bit, hoping that slowly it would help take off the weight. She acts like she is miserable, to the point of trying to eat things cats don't typically eat, like saltines (caught in the act!). Help me figure out what else I can do. [more inside]

Do warring cats become friendly after boarding?

I've heard that boarding cats away from home for a time will encourage them to become friendly toward each other when they return. Looking for whether that's true/common, how long to board and other particulars. [more inside]

Should I try metronomic chemotherapy for my cat?

You are not my vet. However, I have seen a regular vet and a veterinary oncologist and now have some difficult choices to make and I would be very grateful for first hand accounts from people who have tried metronomic chemotherapy with their pet (especially cats) or other people's pets (if you're a vet or if you're close to someone who has gone through this sort of thing before). I am seeking advice and real-life experiences to supplement any advice regular vets or oncologists may give me. [more inside]

Unscented supermarket cat litter (plus bonus points for cat name)

The good news is that we are getting a cat, but it will be this weekend! He's a young male tiger cat stray. The current caretakers say he likes unscented cat litter (will not go in the box if litter is scented). Does anyone have any recommendations for a decent supermarket litter that is clumping and unscented. I don't have time to get fancy or specialty litter with the timetable involved. [more inside]

Adding a new Kitty into the mix - help!

I know there are many cat lovers here, and I am seeking some advice. About two years ago, I adopted two adult female cats (Mona and Lola) from a foster home. Recently, I adopted another kitten (Morty) when his human parents split up. We introduced them slowly, first keeping Morty behind a door away from Mona and Lola, then gradually giving him access to different rooms of the house. The issue is that Morty loves to 'play' often by chasing and pouncing on Lola. I feel very protective of Lola and worry and that she feels unsafe. More details below the fold. [more inside]
