I missed this day of being a grown-up school...

Help! There's a feral cat right outside my door. I think she(?) might be either sick or about to have kittens. What (if anything) should I do? [more inside]

The E Word. Well 2 of them, Euthanasia and Eating(one's own body parts).

No one lies considering euthanasia for their cat, but what other choices do I have in this matter? My cat is eating its own tail. I'm at a loss. [more inside]

Don't Pet This Kitty

Adopted cat doesn't seem to be warming up to us. We've had her for about 7 months now. She doesn't like to be petted or touched and often bites very hard if Mr. Stardust or I have to do so. Can we get her used to being touched, or should we leave her alone? Further details within. [more inside]

My cat bites too hard and has a stinky butt.

Our (formerly feral) cat bites all the time- sometimes gently and affectionately, and other times hard enough to draw blood through thick jeans. Also, he poops every time I take a shower. I'm puzzled. [more inside]

Orphaned Kitten

So I recently found an orphan kitten in the backyard that is about 5 weeks old and i just saw the mother looking for her kitten a little while ago. i'm not sure if she is feral or just a neighborhood cat, and i feel terrible about keeping the kitten from her. but at the same time. if she is feral, i'd feel bad about contributing another feral cat to the community, or worse the kitten wouldn't survive. any advice is more then welcome!
