I love my cat, but I mean... I don't LOVE my cat.

Maybe I'm just a prude but if I wanted an animal to hump my leg every night, I would have got a dog. What is my cat doing? [more inside]

Cross-Country Cat Transportation

My wife and I are moving across country from California to Massachusetts. And we want to bring our animal posse with us. Moving the dogs is not too bad (they are both small enough to fly), but we also have a number of cats, including some that aren't keen on big life changes. How do we get them across the country without them killing us or vice versa? [more inside]

Don't cry for me, Mookie Monster! What's up with my cat's right eye?

You Are Not My Vet Filter: My 10-year-old Siamese has had a weeping right eye for the past few weeks. He's otherwise frisky and healthy as ever, but I find myself cleaning his right eye three or four times a day. I'm stymied; has anyone experienced a "single-eye" weeping issue? There's no sneezing or appearance of illness. What's a good treatment?

Puppy fever - is there a cure?

Hive mind, I have a dilemma. I love dogs and have since I was tiny. I long to own a dog the way some women long to have a baby (ick). I haven't had a dog companion since I was a kid, but I now have just about the best lifestyle I think I'm going to have: we own a home, will have a fenced-in yard (as soon as I can get the contractors to finish the fence; soon, I hope), and have plenty of love to lavish on a pup. But I want to provide the very best possible home, so I'm having some trouble with this decision. [more inside]

What's this website? Sarcastic tone and toy horse included.

There's a website where a guy posts videos that feature a toy horse. I think his site is a video blog about cats but I might be wrong. I first saw him on YouTube reading out the lyrics to, I think, My Humps. Help me find his website, my Google-fu has failed me.

We adore our cat and we're good parents to her. Do we have to give her up?

Our former roommate had a cat, which he was babysitting for his ex. He lived with us for 6 months and barely acknowledged this wonderful, personable animal - they hadn't bothered to give her a name - and my girlfriend and I became close with her and kept her for 2 months after the roommate moved out. Now he has reappeared and wants to take her back to a lonely, neglected existence. We want to say no. How can we do this? [more inside]

Is my kitty sick or in need of a nose job?

Does my cat have a chronic respiratory infection, or is it possible she just naturally has poor breathing passages? Ever since my partner and I adopted her and her sister in August she has had periodic coughing and hacking fits that have been relatively unaffected by three separate rounds of antibiotics. Now I wonder if maybe she just has the equivalent of a deviated septum, or whether it's time for hospitalization. [more inside]

Fake and edible indoor plants? For my Kittys... Does anyone even make such a thing? If not, what could I make it out of??
